At Rome, on the 9th ult., aged 88, the Right Rev. Charles Edward, fifth Duke of Melford, &c., and a Roman Catholic prelate. This venerable nobleman was chief of the ancient and distinguished family of Drummond, and heir to the forfeited earldoms of Perth and Melfort, and other titles in Scotland, to which he would have been restored at the time of the restoration to the titles of Earl of Mar, Viscount Strathalan, &c., in 1825, but being a Roman Catholic and a prelate of that church, his claim was not then preferred. He is succeeded by his only nephew and heir, George Drummond, Esq., a captain in the army, late of the 93rd Highlanders, who, as these titles have never been dropped by his ancestors, now bears them, which was generally done by the lineal descendants of the nobles attainted for their adherence to the unfortunate house of Stuart, before they were restored, as Wemy, Airlie, &c.

H. Studdy, Esq., of Watton Court, Devon, in his 84th year.
At Ashburton, Mrs. Joanna Adams, aged 78. She has left upwards of 10,000l. to be distributed amongst her poor relations, amounting to 18 persons.
At Shepton, Somerset, John Scott, aged 105. When 100 years old he reaped an acre of wheat in two days with ease.
May 14, at his residence, Hyde Park-terrace, in the 68th year of his age, Sir Wm. Bolland, late one of the barons of her Majesty's Court of Exchequer.
The vastly increased importance of our colonies, and the evident advance in the spirit of emigration, have at length aroused the attention of the public to the benevolent efforts of this philantrophic society, which has for its chief object the direction of colonization in the spirit of humanity towards the natives of new regions - the Aborigines of our colonies and settlements. The society, among its modes of appealing to the public, has, lately, undertaken a species of Conversation-meeting which, while it engages the curiosity of the general auditory, calls forth all the information and suggestion which individuals in the auditory may be enabled to afford. In this way very curious communications have been obtained, and peculiar interest excited. The society meets at Hackney-road, at the Literary and Scientific Institution on Monday next: Mr. N. F. Buxton will preside. Mr. Catlin, Mr. Schomburgh, Mr. Scoble, and other travellers are expected to speak, as well as several members of the society, and a very interesting meeting is expected. On the following Friday, a similar meeting will be held in Grafton-street. At the crown and Anchor, Strand; at the Friends' Meeting House, St. Martin's-lane; and at Salvador House, in Bishopgate-street, Conversation have been held: and on Monday was renewed a Conversation, adjourned from the previous Thursday, from Colebrooke Academy, Islington, which excited considerable interest. The constitution of the society, and of its offshoot, the British India Society, was the subject of a spirited conversation; then the sufferings of the native Indians; and lastly, the state of the aborigines in South Australia were discussed. At the adjourned meeting, Mr. Wright, a fellow-traveller of Lord Selkirk, spoke of the horrid examples set by white men in the Hudson's Bay Company's territory, and Mr. Scoble painted the evils to which the native inhabitants of Guiana were exposed. Resolutions were passed, pledging the meeting to support the society in its humane purposes, and we cannot but expect the greatest good from the continued efforts of a body of men so energetic in their exertions, and devoted to so benevolent an object.
