A letter from Geneva, of the 27th, noticing this event, says:—"Few lives have been passed with greater utility and honour than his. Tha number of his publications is immense, and yet the production of these never, under any circumstances, prevented him from fulfilling all his duties, both public and private, as a good citizen. He sunk under a long and painful illness which was much aggravated by the late afflicting occurrences at Geneva. The family of M. SISMONDI was in its origin Italian.
