Graduating at Oxford, he adopted law as his profession, and was called to the Bar in 1823, and made Queen's Counsel in 1840. In 1852, when the honor of Knighthood was conferred upon Sir Richard, he was made Solicitor General in the Ministry of Lord Aberdeen, a position he held until the transfer of Sir Alexander Cockourn to the Bench, when he became Attorney General.

Death of an Ex-Congressman. --On April 30. The Hon Churchill C. Cambreleng died at his residence on Long Island. He was a native of North Carolina, born in 1788, and ciliated at Newbern. In 1802 became to New York, where he remained for some time. He subsequently went to Providence, R. I., where he was employed as a clerk. He was next employed by John Jacob Actor, and in that position traveled extensively He was a member of Congress from this State from 1823 to 1829 during which time heated as chairman of a severally very important committees. He was somewhat celebrated as a political writer and thinker, a reputation well sustained by his reports and pamphlets, which always attracted considerable attention. In when in Europe, President Van Buren appointed him Minister to Russia. On his return he retired to private life, and there remained till the hour of his death
hnic and other sources were of such a character as to secure him a professorship at West Point soon after his arrival. He proved to be, by far, the ablest mathematician that had ever taught in that school. He introduced the French system of mathematics, and was the first to introduce the study of Descriptive Geometry, upon which he wrote a book. It was, we believe, "invented" (if that be the proper term) by the celebrated Monge. We know not how long Col. C. continued at West Point, but in 1823 he was made State Engineer for the State of Virginia, and held that office until 1831, when he removed to Louisiana, where he had been appointed to one corresponding to that he had held here. He afterwards was the head of a College in that State, but returned to Virginia about 1838, and having been appointed to his old office, held it until it was abolished. Hitherto his duty had been to give general ideas with regard to all the works of the State--At last he was entrusted with the executio
hwestern Boundary Treaty. The deceased was born in Philadelphia, in 1799, his mother being an American lady, the daughter of william Bingham, a prominent merchant of that day in that city. At an early age, with his parents, he returned to England, where, it is said, he took an active though not a prominent part in politics. The same papers also announce the death of the Earl of Aberdeen. He held several important offices of a diplomatic character under the British Ministry, and was in 1823 appointed Secretary for Foreign Affairs, and afterwards, in 1841, he became Prime Minister. As a diplomatist he was shrewd and successful, but not so absolutely great as to leave a name as such, or be remembered as other than as a useful worker and faithful servant of his Government. In literature he is only known as the author of a work on Grecian architecture, and as a contribute to the Edinburgh--a fact which would probably have been quite forgotten are this but for Byron's castigation.
e that she has been guilty of similar bad faith. In the war of the Succession she tempted the Catalans to take up arms in favor of the Archduke, and not only totally neglected and turned them over to the vengeance of Spain at the peace, but actually ordered the British fleet in the Mediterranean to assist in reducing Barcelona, their last place of refuge, standing alone between them and indiscriminate massacre. In the same way Canning induced the Spaniards to rise against Ferdinand VII. in 1823, and left them to the vengeance of the Holy Alliance. When reproached for this in the House of Commons, he answered in a speech which we are told convulsed the House, so ludicrous were the pictures he drew of the unhappy people whom he had betrayed to ruin.--Above all other nations, England cares most for herself and least for her allies.
