EXTINCT FAMH-IBS OF FAMOUS MEN. The recent death of Mr Algernon S. Field, of Leamington (writes the 'Westminster Gazette') a descendant of Oliver Cromwell on the distaff side, reminds one that the Protector, like so many other great Englishmen, has no living descendant In the male line, which ended long ago with the death pf Oliver Cromwell, an attorney, the eon of a Snow Hill grocer. Shakes peare's male posterity began and ended with his son Hamnet, and he^iever had a great grand-child; Milton had three daughters, but no son; Sir Walter Scott's two sons left no issue; and , Burke's only son perished in his prime. ' Francis Bacon was childless; and so were Locke, Newton, and Davy.
