Nov. Mahon, Major Denis, of Strokestown, co.

Roscommon. The barbarous murder of this unfortunate gentleman stands forth in dark relief, even among the atrocities which have of late years thrown so black a shadow over the domestic annals of Ireland. A good landlord, an upright magistrate, and a most active benefactor to the poor, Major Mahon has fallen a victim to the treacherous aim of the concealed assassin. Just two years since he succeeded, at the decease of his first cousin, Maurice, Lord Hartland, to an estate of the value of £12,000 per annum, and fixed his residence at the family mansion of Stroksetown, devoting his time and energies to the benefit of his tenantry, and the improvement of his land. Early in life he had served in the British army, from which he retired with the rank of Major. He was born 12th March, 1787, the second son of the Rev. Thomas Mahon, younger brother of Maurice, first Lord Hartland; he married, 17th September, 1822, Henrietta, daughter of Dr. Bathurst, late Bishop of Norwich, by whom he leaves a son, Thomas, born 30th October, 1831, and a daughter, Grace Catherine. The family of Mahon was established in Ireland, by Nicholas Mahon, Esq., a distinguished personage in the Civil Wars, and, from the period of its settlement, it has ever held a high position among the landed proprietors of the Sister Island, intermarrying with the most eminent houses, and frequently giving members to the Irish Parlia

Metzler, Miss, at Capt. M. Seymour's,

R.N., Honduras, 26th Oct. Mendelssohn. This celebrated composer

has shared the fate of Mozart and Bellini; he has died before the prime of life, in the fulness of his glory. This greatest of recent composers, whose death has caused & gcneral lamentation, was born at Hamburgh, on the 3d Feb. 1809. His grandfather was an eminent Hebrew philosopher; his father was a wealthy merchant of Berlin. From his earliest youth, Felix Mendelssohn Bartholdy was a musician. Educated pursuant to the anxious care and hope of a mother, by the first professors and masters of Germany, he at eight years of age, played with marvellous execution and facility; in his ninth year, he performed publicly at Berlin. His first published compositions appeared in 1824; and soon after that period he rose up to the eminence which he subsequently enjoyed. Need we enumerate his productions, familiar as they are to the delighted ear of Europe? Need we do more to register his fame than to mention that he was the author of the music of the “ Midsummer Night's Dream,” “Fingal,” "Melusina," "St. Paul,” and “Elijah ?” In this country Mendelssohn was a cherished favorite, and the affection was mutual : he loved England as heartily as his home. He had been frequently amongst us from the time of his gifted boyhood. His triumphant reception in London, last spring, now brings a melancholy feeling in its recollection. On the 5th of last October, Mendelssohn was struck with apoplexy; and, although, as younger patients usually do, he struggled against the malady; it gradually overcame him, by frequent repetition, and he expired on the 4th instant, in his 39th year; thus bringing to an untimely termination a life graced by every private virtue, and illustrated by talents that class him among the greatest of his era. Mensdorff, Count Hugh Ferdinand. The

Court has just been placed in mourning by the death, at Gödfenberg, of Count Hugh Mensdorff, the Queen's cousin. He was a Bohemian Noble, the eldest son of Emanuel Count Von Mensdorff, G.C.B., by the Princess Sophia Frederica Caroline Louisa of Saxe-Coburgh, eldest sister of H.R.H. the Duchess of Kent. Count Hugh had only just completed his 41st year. He held military rank under the Emperor of Austria; and, at the period of bis decease, was Colonel-Commandant

of a regiment of Cuirassiers. He leaves three brothers, Alphonso Frederick, Major in the Austrian service, Alexander Constantine Albert, and Arthur Augustus, both Captains of Hussars in

the same army. Middleton, Mrs. Alfred, of Finsbury

aged 70. This distinguished officer
entered the British service in 1794, and
rose through the various grades to that
of a Lieutenant-General in 1830. In
1842, he also received the Colonelcy of
the 3d Dragoon Guards. General
Newberry acted in Ireland during the
rebellion of Ireland in 1798, and was
present at the engagement with the
rebels, and the French at Ballinamuck.
In 1816, he commanded the first cavalry
brigade at the siege and capture of
Huttrus. Again, in 1817 and 1818, he
superintended the proceedings of the
cavalry of the left division of the Mar-
quis of Hastings' gallant army, which
was the first engaged with the Pinda-
rees, and he took the whole of their bag-
gage and camp. He was subsequently
removed to the command of the cavalry,
with a light division, under Major-Gen.
Sir Thomas Brown, and captured at
one fort nine pieces of artillery, and
took prisoner the Artillery General;
he was afterwards present at several
severe and successful attacks on the
enemy's troops. The whole period of
General Newberry's service comprised

53 years. Normann, Harriett Jane, wife of H. Bur

Mr. Parr was, early in life, a merchant of great eminence in Liverpool, and resided in Colquitt street, in the house, of his own erection, now occupied as the Royal Institution in that town. In 1804 he retired from business; and having purchased the mansion and cot. of Lythwood, he resided there during the last forty-three years of his life. He married, in 1803, Katherine, dau. and co-heir of Capt. Robert Walter, R.N., by whom he has left four sons and one daughter. The eldest son is the Rev. Thomas Parr,
