'ITh same obituary by the Northarnm, noting thoe death of Mr. De Quincoy, contains that of another distinguished literary man - thoigh ranking in. a category almost mensurelessly below the gicat Opium Eater. Washington Irving; long with a household reputation in Europe as Wel]as in America for his calm and classic graces of mind and manner, died in December'last'. Irving, the son of a Scotchman and an Englishwoman, was born at New York, in April, 1783; and was therefore at his decease in the 70th year of his age. His education was of the simplest character, and after a little boyish irribbliangin a newi uter, edited by his broter, he, in 1SOt, visited Euroje for, the benefit of his healthi, and after the g~and tour, reached. England.

FRIDAY, 17TH FEBRUARY. [Newspaper Article] — Examiner — 22 February 1860

FRIDAY, 17TH F?nnUARY. - . i , The Legislative Assembly met at half-past three o'clock. Petitions from certain Roman Catholics iii favoor of.the continuance of State-aid, were pr'e sented by Mr. Hurley and Mr. Cummings. In,roply to MIr. Hart, the Colonial Secretary said it was an error to suppose that the mor tality of Sydney had been progressively on the increase. There was not only in Sydney, but throughout the colony, an extrordinary increase of mortality in 1858, which was ascribable to some atmospheric influence not discovered, and it was this fact that had given an appearance of progressive increase. But the mortality of 1850 showed an actual decrease on former years. The infant mortality in the Hamlets was greater than that in Sydney, but this arose from the greater nimber of childreii inthe Hamlets. Several new notices of motion were given, in cluding one by Mr. Iodgson in favor of minis ters of religion retaining their present stipends for the term of their lives. On the mo...
