Died Yesterday evening, of a Bilious Fever, at the House of Messrs. H. Mackenzie & Co. William Robertson Esq. a Partner in the Firm of J. M. & W. Robertson & Co of Glasgow, and who had just lately arrived in the Belleisle on a visit to his Friends here; born and bred in the lap of affluence, and graced with every mental and personal accomplishment; this Gentleman at once an honor to his Friends and an ornament to Society, took leave of his Family and connexions, but alas! only to fall in the prime of his life and 31st Year of his age, an untimely victim to that baneful malady from which so few escape who are attacked by it. His remains were this day attended to the place of Interment by a numerous assemblage of his acquaintances and friends, by whom his loss is as sincerely lamented as he was living respected.
"Death loves a shining mark, a signal blow,
A blow which wile it executes, alarms,
And startles thousands with a single fall.
As when some stately growth of oak or pine,
Which nods aloft, and proudly spreads her shade,
The Sun's defiance and the flock's defence,
By the strong strokes of lab'ring hinds subda'd,
Loud groans her last, and rushing from her height
In cumb'rous ruin thunders to the ground,
The conscious forest trembles at the shock,
And hills, and stream, and distant dale resound."

Vessels Entered and Cleared since our last.
ENTERED. - None.
Jan. 16. Ship Mary, Capt. Jennings, for [illegible] London.
