THE DOCUMENTS IN THE CASE. BY BRASDER BIATTHEWS AND H. C. BUSSER PART FIRST. Paragraph from the c Illustrated London News, published under the hdad of Obilzrary of Eminent Persons, in the issue of Jalzuary 4th, 1879. SIR WILLIAM BEAUVOIR, BART. IR WILLIAM BEAUVOIR, Bart., S whose lamented death has just occurred at Brighton, on December 2Sth, was the head and representative of the junior branch of the very ancient and honourable family of Beauvoir, and was the only son of the late General Sir JVilliam Beauvoir, Bart., by his wife Anne, daughter of Colonel Doyle, of Chelsworth Cottage, Suffolk. He was born in 1805, and was educated at Eton and Trinity Hall, Cambridge. He was M. P. for Lancashire from 1837 to 1847, and was appointed a Gentleman of the Privy Chamber in 1843. Sir William married, in 1826, Henrietta Georgiana, fourth daughter of the Right Honourable Adolphus Siddell, Q. C., by whom he had two sons, William Beauvoir and Oliver Siddell Beauvoir. The latter was with his lamented parent when he died. Of the former nothing has been heard for nearly thirty years, about which time he left England suddenly for America. It is supposed that he went to California, shortly after the discovery of gold. Much forgotten gossip will now in all probability be revived, for the will of the lamented baronet has been proved, on the 2d inst., and the personalty sworn under E70,000. The two sons are appointed executors. The estate in Lancashire is left to the elder, and the rest is divided between the brothers. The doubt as to the career of Sir Williams eldest son must now of course be cleared up. This family of Eeauvoirs is of Norman descent, and of great antiquity. This is the younger branch, founded in the last century by Sir TVilliam Beauvoir, Bart., who was Chief Justice of the Canadas, whence he was granted the puniling arms and motto now borne by his descendants-a beaver sable rampant on a field argent motto, Damno.

IN PARTNERSHIP, Extruct from the Sun, day Satirist, a jou nal of high life, published in Lon don, May 13th, 1848. Are not our hereditary lawmakers and the members of our old families the guardians of the honour of this realm One would not think so to see the reckless gait at which some of them go down the road to ruin. The D-e of D-in and the E-l of B-n and L-d Y-g, - are not these pretty guardians of a nations name Quis custodiet etc. Guardians, forsooth, parce quils se sont donnds Za peine de nattre Some of the gentry make the running as well as their betters. Young TIT-m B-r, son of old Sir W-m B-r, late M. P. for L-e, is a truly model young man. He comes of a good old county family-his mother was a daughter of the Right Honourable A-S S-1, and he himself is old enough to know better. But we hear of his escapades night after night, and day after day. He bets all day and he plays all night, and poor tired nature has to make the best of it... --This text refers to the Paperback edition.
