SAVARY, DUKE OF ROVIGO.
Died in January, 1833, the duke of Rovigo, governor of Algiers. He was born at a little village, in Champagne, France, April 26, 1774. In Buonaparte's expedition to Egypt, he was a lieutenant colonel. He was not destitute of personal courage, but his manners were course even to brutality. Under the exterior of military bluntness, he concealed an unrivalled duplicity. He adhered to Napoleon with the utmost good faith. Buonaparte gave him a watch worth 4,000 francs. His death was owing to a cancer in the throat.
Died at Florence, April 11, Raffale Morghen, the celebrated engraver. His exquisite productions have been fully described by his scholar Palmerini.
