Mountiford John Hay, and John Claudius Beresford, efqrs. The four gentlemen fo nominated were fent to the commons houfe, and their names being read, mr. Minchin in a very handsome manner addressed the houfe, declaring that this nomination came upon him utterly unexpected, and confequently he was quite unprepared to avail himself of the honour it might confer; that he was highly fenfible of the refpectable light in which it placed him, but not having canvalled the commons, he could not now hope for fuccefs, and

would therefore decline the election. This he did with the leis reluctance, as he found hinfelf joined in the nomination with fome truly worthy and honourable perfons, who having taken the neceffury pains, he was fure would be fuccefstal. He declared the warmth of his gratitude to his fellow-citizens, and hoped for their future favour.

Mr. Jones faid that he had calculated up on being in the nomination, but had no expectation of final fuccefs upon the prefent occafion-as in his canvafs of the commess, they had in general with great candour declared their intention of voting for an ho nourable gentleman, who would he was convinced prove an excellent magistrate; he hoped, however, by declining an election now, to acquire future favour.

Mr. Beresford faid, he felt the utmost. gratitude to those friends to whom he owed his nomination-and the highest confidence in the favour and friendship of that house, to which he was indebted for fo many obli gations. His fellow-citizens had already placed him in feveral fituations of great truft and honour, and he hoped he had never difappointed their expectations; that conduct which had obtained their ap probation, he would ever purfue: the fupnation, and the honour of the city of Dubport of the conftitution-the welfare of the lin, were his great objects, and to them he would always adhere.

THE LATE LIEUT. M' LEAN. Early on Saturday laft, the remains of that intrepid and amiable lieut. M'Lean, of the 18th regiment, were conveyed in a hearse to Monktown church-yard, and interred. The funeral fervice was performed by that excellent divine, dr. Harpur, with a feeling and folemnity fuitable to the lamentable and awful event that has deprived the ftate of fo many of its most valuable defenders, and involved numbers in excess of mifery for their friends and relatives. The fate of this gallant young officer is peculi arly deplored; poffeffing fplendid military talents, with an uncommon fine perfon, unaffuming but captivating manners, his manly heart throbbed with affection to all his fellow creatures, and during his fervice in the Weft Indies, his conftitution funk more under the preffure of grief for the mortality he witnelfed, than the fatigues he underwent, or the unwhole fomeneis of that climate.
