INCIDENTS, MARRIAGES, And DEATHS, In And Near LONDON With Biographical Memoirs of distinguished Characters recently deceased*

A BOUT seven o'clock in the evening of February Bth, a destructive fire happened at the print!ug-oftice of Mr. Barnard, in Skinner-street. It was occasioned by an accU •Jent in the press-room, where a great number of sheets were hanging. ' Some of the paper having ulien fire, the men -it work immediately endeavoured to extinguish the flames, but their exeitions were unavailing; the blaze spruiil with astonishing rapidity, and it was with the greatest difficulty they escaped from the room. In a short space of time the upper part of the house Was enveloped in flames, and a conflagration more luminous has seldom occurred in the metropolis. The engines soon arrived, but the house be* iftg in a confined situation up a long narrow parage, it was some time before water could he thrown to produce any effect.' The whole extent of the printing-office continued burning until'all was destroyed.

At Paddington, his Excellency the Zhh ef'Alhuqueravt, ambassador extraordinary Iron) Spain to this country. His disorder, a derangement, brought on by grief and disappointment, was of so violent a nature as to prove mortal in a few days. From the moment he was seized to that of his death, he Scarcely ceased to exclaim, Moriar Kafolun! The late Mary ferniy^ Barents* Fermanagh, (whose death we have already noticed iu page 93 of our last Number,) was born October 23, 1757, the posthumous and only .child of the Honourable John Verney, eldest

Jon of Ralph Viscount Fermanagh, Baron of lelturbct, and first Earl of Verney, to which latter honour he was promoted after his son's decease. Her ladyship's great-grandfather was Ralph Viscount Fermanagh, in which title he was succeeded by his sou Ralph, created Earl of Verney, as before-mentioned, whodiedOctober 4,1752, anil was succeeded 'by his second, but eldest surviving son, Ralph, second Earl,whowas one olbis Majesty's most 'honourable Privy Council, a fellow of the Jloy.al Society, and successively MP. for Wendovcr and Carmarthen- This lord married Sept. 11, 1740, Mary, daughter and hei'ress of Henry Herring, of Egham, Surry, a director of the Bank of England j but dying

without issue, March ?5, 1791, the titles Of* Baron of Relturbet, Viscount Fermanagh, and Earl of Verney, became extinct; but the estates devolved to his niece, Mary Yeru.ey» only daughter of his elder brother, the Hon. John Verney, who, as before stated, died in bis father's life-time, without issue male. Mary Verney was crested Baroness Ferma» na6h in 17'.''J, about a year after tbe extinction of the antient titles of her ancestors; but, deceasing unmarried, the title of Fermanagh. becomes again extinct, making tbe twelfth Irish Peerage which has failed since tbe Union in January 1S01, for default of male heirs.

[Further particular/ cf Mr. Lewis, vtbast death is recorded at page 78 if tur last Number.'] This gentleman,'as a comic actor, was certainly at the head of his profession for the whole of the period of which he was on the London stage. He had acquired considerable fame as a comedian, before he ventured upon the boards of the great metropolis pi the British empire. He made his first ap» pearance in London at Covent Garden Theatre, about the year 1774, in the part of the West Indian, which he represented with so much ease, sprightliness, and humour, that he ri\ed his reputation on his first appearance, and made such a progress in public savour, that he was, during the whole of his career, the popular comedian of his day. From the characters which he generally assumed, and from his well-bred, manners in private life, he soon acquired the designation of Gentleman Lewis, to distinguish him from Lee Lewes, who generally represented parts of a !c>5 elegant description. Mr, Lewis came upon the London boards just as poor Woodward was closing his career, and he was tbe rightful inheritor of that excellent actor's range of characters; and was indeed capable of assuming parts which Woodward would have been incapable of representing; such, for instance, as Faulkland in the Rivals, a part which Mr. Levis rendered very prominent in that admirable comedy, and which he supported with all requisite ease and sensibility. There was an origins) spirit, gaiety, and whim, in Mr. Lewis's manner, which not only enabled him to display the general round of stock characters, as they; are called, of the legitimate drama, with great skill, but which induced O'Krene, and other dramatic writ en of the present day, to design parts entirely for the purpose of drawing forth his peculiar ulcus, and. affording scope lor the exuberance of his humour. Indeed it may be truly said, that many productions of , the present day were indebted for the favour with which they were received wholly to the whim, gsiery, and original humour, with which he supported the principal characters. But the powers of Mr. Lewis were not confined to comedy. He was a very respectable actor in the tragic province; and we are assured that the excellence which he displayed ia (lis. Hunaji JdoiC's tragedy of Percy,

procui«4

procured him the- warm, approbation of .Gartick him>clf. Bui though Mr. Lewis distinguished himself so much in what may be called the dashing characters of comedy, his private life was. marked by every domestic virtue. He was an affectionate husband and father, and he was rewarded by the possession of an estimable wife, and amiable and accomplished offspring. The immediate cause of his death was a fever on his chest; and he hid only been confined to his bed a week, before his family and numerous train of friends, had the misfortune to be deprived of him. As » member of society he was distinguished for probity, and a strict performance of all his engagement s. It is so seldom that the world is deprived of a man of his eminence in the rank of society to which he belonged, and to- whom the public were so much indebted for so many years of harmless pleasure, tliat we have deemed it an act of duty and gratitude to a man of worth and talents, to give this' testimony to his professional excellence and personal merits. He was in possession of his faculties till the last moments; and hit latest'words testified affection for his family, and resignation to his fact. .
