On Saturday last, at his house, in Allonby, aged 50, William LOMAS, Esq. M. D. Dr. L. has closed a life spent in exercising the laborious duties of his profession for a period of nearly 30 years; and to the great and enthusiastic zeal and activity with which he pursued it, may justly be attributed that violent excitement of the system which terminated so unhappily. Seldom has such a sensation been excited, or such deep and sincere regret felt, for the loss of any man. Dr. L. was particularly distinguished for the mildness and suavity of his disposition, and the urbanity of his manners: he was a kind friend to the poor, to whom he generally extended gratuitous advice; and often, when pressed by hard necessity, has he administered to them what their wants required. As a practitioner of medicine, his character was too well known to require comment. Pretty deeply read in medical literature, and possessing a powerful and comprehensive mind, which eminently qualified him for practical observation, he occupied a high standing in his profession; and thoroughly conversant with every department of it, the success of his practice, as conducted on the soundest and most scientific principles, has seldom had a parallel. Long will his name be honoured and respected by all who had the pleasure of knowing him.

Verona, Oct. 17.—Every lover of the Fine Arts in England, as well as in all quarters of the globe where his name was known, will hear with extreme regret that the celebrated CANOVA is no more.

The dust of the marble is supposed to have been the primary cause of his death.
