Mr John Caldwall, miniature-painter, aged 81. For more than half a century he followed his profession in this city, and, till age had rendered him unable any longer to continue it as the means of gaining a livelihood, was confessedly superior to all his contemporaries. In the early part of his life he was remarkable for his proficiency in the mathematics, having for several years gained the principal mathematical prize at the Ayr academy, at that time under the care of the well known Mr Mair, afterwards rector of the academy at Perth, by whom he was also initiated in the knowledge of the Latin language-his attainments in which were of a very respectable kind; and even till within a few days of his decease, the writer of this article has heard him repeat several long passages of Vir gil's Eclogues with all the fervour and correct emphasis of a college youth. His first instructor in the principles of drawing was Monsieur Delacour, a Frenchman who held the situation of master of the Drawing Academy, where, as a competitor in the fine arts, Mr C. was no less successful than in his mathematical trials;-so much so, that after having three times gained the first prize for drawing, he was forbidden to compete any longer, lest the rest of the boys might be disheartened from his repeated success. With the most unaffected simplicity and mildness of manner, he combined the graceful and easy politeness of a gentleman of the old school; and his company and conversation were equally relished by philosophers and men of science, as by the young and giddy. In a long list of friends, he had the honour of enumerating many distinguished both by birth and talent. A mong these were the late Hon. H. Erskine, Sir W. Forbes, Lord Elibank, Robert Fergusson, David Allan, Runciman, Hearne, Pinkerton, Earl of Buchan, H. Raeburn, Esq., Lord Hermand, Gov. Ferguson, &c. He has left no relatives, except one brother, Mr James Caldwall, well known to the admirers of the fine arts by his engraving of Mrs Siddons in the character of the tragic muse, after Reynolds, and by his plates to Thornton's illustrations of the Sexual system of Linnæus, besides several in the Shakspeare gallery, &c. Mr C. was of a tall slender make-had a finely formed countenance-a nose of the real Roman curvature -with eyes which to the last sparkled with intelligence and good nature. The above is written by one who had the pleasure of being most intimate with him, and who considers it as a just though humble tribute to the talents and unobtrusive worth of an individual on whom the public, at one time, bestowed no inconsiderable share of their patronage; but who had latterly sunk into an oblivion almost as dark as that in which he is now enshrouded.
28. At Edinburgh, Miss Anna Dunbar, late of Durn, aged 82.
29. At Springside, Marianne, youngest daughter of the deceased Robert Hyndman, Esq. of Springside, in Ayrshire.
At Dalkeith, Mrs Katharine Hay, relict of David Chrichton, Esq. late inerchant there.
30. At the Vice-Regal-lodge, Dublin, the Right Hon. the Countess Talbot. Her ladyship's very amiable character, her mild and affable manners, and the unaffected goodness of heart, had much endeared her to all classes in this country, which claimed the honour of her birth. Her excellency's complaint, we understand, was one induced in a principal degree by her late accouchment.

-In Lauriston, Robert Forrest, Esq. late surgeon in the royal navy.
At Glasgow, George Forsyth, Esq. writer.

-At his house, High-terrace, Edinburgh, Mr George Ross, auctioneer.

Jan. 1. At Edinburgh, Mrs Elizabeth M Dermeit, relict of Mr Andrew Bannatyne, merchant in Edinburgh.
At Over Kinfauns, Mrs Margaret Robertson, aged 78, wife of Mr William Shaw, late of Dalnaglar.
At his house, at Lauriston, J. Forrest, Esq. 2. At Bongate, Jedburgh, Mr James Davidson, late of Hindlee. Few passed this good man's door without a kind invitation and hearty welcome to his sheltering cot and friendly board. This benevolent individual is supposed to have been in the eye of the author of Guy Mannering, when he drew the character of Dandy Dinmont.
2. At Brechin, the Rev. Mr Straton, of the English Episcopal-chapel.
At Belmaduthy-house, Colin, third son of Colin Mackenzie, Esq. of Kilcoy.

At Newbridge, Mr Alex. Lawson, aged 81. At Exeter, in her 77th year, Mary, Dowager Countess of Rothes, relict of Bennet Langton, Esq. of Langton, county of Lincoln.
13. At Moness-house, James Robertson, Esq. of Killichangie, aged 96. He outlived all his own family (the male part of which honourably bled and died in the service of their country). We have frequently observed the death of the last of Prince Charles Edward's followers announced, and now venture to assert, without fear of contradiction, that this is the last of the officers who fought under him, at the battle of Culloden, in 1746. He commanded a company of the Athole Highlanders upon that memorable day; and being perfectly collected in his senses to the last moment, his enthusiastic account of the deeds of other years was truly interesting.
14. At Grant's-braes, near Haddington, Agnes Brown, the mother of Burns the poet, in her 88th year.
16. At Edinburgh, in her 32d year, Mrs Jean Wilson, relict of the late Mr George Wilson, merchant, Dundee.

At Newbigging, in the parish of Kingoldrum, Thomas Macinnes, late tenant in Longdrum, in the parish of Lentrethen, aged 103.
THE number of eminent persons, natives, or closely connected with Scotland, who have died within these twelve months, is rather extraordinary, and greater than we ever remember within the same period. Among these were the representatives of seven of the most ancient and noble families in this kingdom, viz.-The Dukes of Hamilton, Buccleuch, and Lennox; the Earls of Errol and Eglinton; the Countess of Rothes and Lord Somerville; the Right Hon. Robert Dundas, Lord Chief Baron; Adam Rolland, Esq. of Gask, Professor Playfair, Professor Rutherford, Principal Hill, Principal Playfair, and Mr Watt, the celebrated inventor of the great improvements upon steam, the steam engine, &c.
