He was the original founder of the Pitt club.

23. In Hamburgh, aged 40, lieut. James Heselden, R. N. of Bartonupon-Humber.

In her 92nd year, the dowager lady Rossmore, widow of Robert Cunninghame, first lord Rossmore. Gifted with qualities of a superior order, she was for a long series of years the leader of the ton in the metropolis of Ireland.

29. At Brussels, whither he retired after the restoration of Louis XVIII., being included in the decree passed against the regicides, Jaques Louis David, the celebrated painter. This artist, who may be regarded as the chief of the modern French school, was born at Paris,

in 1756. At the age of eighteen he went to Rome, where he continued several years. Among his early performances of any repute were his "St. Roche healing the sick during a pestilence," and "Belisarius begging alms." In 1784 he again visited Italy, where he produced his "Horatii," which at once stamped his reputation, and seemed

to create a new era in the art. The fame he thus acquired was increased by his picture of "Brutus and his sons,' ," and the "Death of Socrates." Shortly after this period, he took an active part in the troubles of the Revolution; and during the Reign of Terror, was one of the most furious of the Jacobins, and voted for the death of the king. His pencil, too, was devoted to representing many of the political scenes and events of the day; and he gave a variety of designs for national monuments. Among these projects was one for a colossal figure representing the French people. On the fall of Robespierre, he was in great personal danger; and nothing but his great reputation as an artist could have averted his death on the scaffold. After an interval of complete inactivity he produced his picture of the " Rape of the Sabines," in 1799; and in 1804 was appointed first painter to the emperor, by whom he was commissioned to paint the ceremony of his coronation, and other subjects. After the return of Napoleon from Elba, he received particular notice from him. As an artist, David has the merit of having rescued painting from the insipid unnatural style which had so long prevailed in France; but in attempting to restore classical design and simplicity, he exaggerated them into coldness and theatrical affectation. Latterly he altered his system entirely; for instead of the severe and rigid manner which distinguishes his Horatii and Brutus, he copied nature, without attempting to refine upon his models.
