With feelings of profound regret—which we are sure will jbs shared by every person In Southampton—we record this day the deosaes of the Eight Honourable Bdbbxll Ooajr*T, who for thirteen years has been one oi the Parliamentary representatives of this borough. Mr. Qukvkt had been for some time part in enfeebled health; but although a few months since he fell compelled, mainly on that account, to resign ths Reoocdershlp of the City of London, the right hem. gentleman continued to attend to hia Parliamentary and other public duties up to the
end of last week; and his comparatively sudden decease must therefore have been altogether unexpected. To many of his more intimate friends and nwn-istss Mr. Roseau. Gurnet's health had, however, for some time been a source of anxiety, as they became conscious of his loss of physical power, and his perceptibly Increasing feebleness. Ths right honourable gentleman took part last week In the division in the House of Commons on ths motion challenging ths constitutional right ol the Government to employ Indian troops in Europe without ths consent of Parliament. That division did not off until three o'clock on Friday rooming j and friend who was In ths Houas at ths tiros remarked afterwards that Mr. Gukjiet looked unusually worn and jsded. He was subssquently seised with an attack bronchitis, which his snfeebled frame was 111 able withstand, and from ths effects of which he died his residence in Palace Gardens yesterday morning. The sad tidings were transmitted by telegraph Southampton la the afternoon, and exalted everywhere feelings of deep and heartfelt regret. The right honourable gsptlsman wee eon of the late Sir Jon GoawKT, one of the Banns of the Exchequer, by Miaia, dsnghter of the late Wnxuv Hawse, Esq., ED. Hs wsa worn at Norwood on the fed September, 1804, and wae ooneeqnsntly in hie 74th year. The dtosaosd gentlnnse was ifamM a* Trinity
ths settlement of British and American claims under the twelfth section of the Treaty of Washington^ a most important and delicate position, the duties of which hs '"•charged ss Indeed hs did everything that he undertook -with exemplary seal, care, and impartiality. The inhabitant* of Southampton, of all shadss of political opinion, received with approval the announcement that Mr. Roseau. Qosnxt had been appointed to fulfil this important mission ; and in the Hartley Hall a very large representative gathering asssmbled to bid him a hearty God speed before sstting out on voyage across ths Atlantic. Equally cordial **• thelr greeting on his return to re,
wtfslativs duties in the interests of t__ —mi. twacy to which with conscientious fidelity hs dsvoted mmself. As a Judge Mr. Roseau. Goaaar commanded
nSt 2. -a
rectitude and a rigid impartiality, specially fitted him for the judgment seat; and In all his decisions justice was judiciously tempered with mercy. As Recorder the City uf London he had to dispose of an enormc umb*of.4Wnd ca^ fnxn y^ to y^* but hi; judicial experience was by no means confined to the Osntral Criminal Court, as he occasionally acted as Judge of Asmise, and in that capacity at various times went the Western, Oxford, Northern and North Wales Circuits. Few men have lived more active lives or got through a greater amount of work than the right hen gsntleman whess dsos* It la cur painful duty to record. But it was ss one of the Parliamentary representatives of this borough that hs was beet known to the peoplsof Southampton. Elsctodlnl8A5attbsbckdof
