James Stuart.

April 11. Aged 116, James Stuart, commonly known by the name of Jemmy Strength.

He was born on Dec. 25, 1728, at Charlston, in South Carolina, United States. His father, General John Stuart, was a near relative of the Pretender Prince Charles. He left America when seven years of age, and was a spectator Ht the battle ot Preston Pans, and witnessed the death of Colonel Gardiner and the flight of Johnny Cope. He beheld the triumphal entry of Prince Charles into Edinburgh, and was a spectator ut the battle of Culloden. When about 90 years of age he enlisted in the 42nd Highlander*, in which regiment he remained about seven years. He was an

ensign in General Wolfe's army, and fought at the battle of Quebec; after that war he sold his commission, but very soon after he again entered the army, and served during the American war, and was at the battle of Bunker's bill. After this be entered the Navy, and served under Rodney. He was also for several years a sailor on board of merchant vessels. About sixty years ago he settled in Berwick.upon-Tweed, or rather in Tweedmonth, and during that period he has travelled the borders as a wandering minstrel, scraping upon a wretched violin. He has had five wives and 27 children. Ten of his sons were killed in battle— five in the East Indies, two at Trafalgar, one at Waterloo, and two at Algiers. He was short in stature, but of remarkable strength; he is said, upon one occasion, about 30 years ago, to have gone beneath a cart loaded with hay, and carried it on his back for several yards. A fund was raised some time since which enabled the old man to spend the evening of bis long and eventful life in comparative ease and comfort. He said a few weeks ago that he "hudna been sae wecl aff this bunder year."

His death was caused by an injury which he received from a fall on Thursday April 4. The remains of this extraordinary man were, on Sunday, April 14, consigned to the tomb in T\veedmouth churchyard. The funeral was attended by an immense concourse of people, considerably more than 1,000.

April 23. At Blackheath, aged 80, the Rev. John Kendall, M.A. Vicar of Budbrooke, near Warwick, and Master of the Earl of Leicester's Hospital in that town. He was a native of Cumberland, and was brought up by his grandfather, the Rev. J. Kendall, Vicar of Isell, in that county. When very young he entered at Oxford, and shortly after he came to Warwick was a classical assistant at St. John's Academy in that town, under the superintendence of a Mr. Fowler. He afterwards established a school on his own account in the West street, and he officiated on Sundays as Curate at the neighbouring parish of Chesterton, and afterwards for a short time at Honiley. Having married a Miss Baly, who then kept a young ladies'school in'High streeet, he removed to her residence. There he remained until 1791, when, on the death of the Rev. George Lillington, the Master of Leicester's Hospital, he obtained that appointment (it is believed by the interference of the late Earl of Warwick) from the hereditary patron, Sir John Shelley Sidney. To this hospital Mr. Kendall removed his school, carefully keeping it separate from the other parts of the building. In 1797 he had about 60 scholars. In 1802 the Warwick corporation gave him the Vicarage of Budbrooke, within two miles of Warwick; he then relinquished his school. In this school (or academy, as it was always called,) the sons of the gentry of the town and neighbourhood were educated. Many of his pupils afterwards finished their education at Rugby, as well as at other public seminaries; and it was remarked by the head master of that school that from no town had he received scholars better advanced in the knowledge of the Greek and Latin classics than from Mr. Kendall. The annual delivery of speeches by his scholars, prior to the Midsummer vacation, at the Court House, in Warwick, added greatly to the high reputation he enjoyed. Mr. Kendall was much distinguished as a reader and a preacher, and until the close of his long and useful life he was uniform in bis kindness to the young clergymen in his neighbourhood. He was a valued friend of the celebrated Dr. Parr, who highly estimated his classical attainments; and those pupils who were so fortunate as to be placed under his care justly appreciated the great talent and kindly feeling of their respected tutor. He was kind to his parishioners, and his loss will long be felt by them. He was rather tall, and very gentlemanly in his
