DEATHS in the Year 1816.
Having in the Chronicle of the last year inserted from the Irish papers a relation of the death of the Duke of Dorset, which is in some respect erroneous, we here transcribe an authentic account of that melancholy event from a memoir of that lamented and promising young nobleman, published in the Gentleman's Magazine for Sept. 1816.
He had resided in Ireland about a year and a half, when he met with the fatal catastrophe that put an end to his existence. On the 13th of Feb. 1815, he went to pay a visit to his friend and schoolfellow, Lord Powerscourt, meaning to stay from the Monday till the Thursday, on which day he was to return to the Castle for a drawing-room. On the 14th he went out with Lord Powerscourt's harriers, mounted on a well-trained active Irish mare, and accompanied by his Lordship and Mr. Wingfield. Having been out for several hours without finding any thing, they were actually on the point of returning home, when unfortunately a hare sprang up, and the chase commenced. The hare made for the inclosures on Killiney Hill. They had gone but a short distance, when the Duke, who was an excellent and forward horseman, rode at a wall, which was in fact a more dangerous ob
stacle than it appeared to be. The wall stands on the slope, and from the lower ground what is immediately on the other side cannot be discerned. The wall itself is perhaps no more than three feet and a half in height, and two in breadth; but on the other side there lay a range of large and ponderous stones, which had been rolled there from off the surface of the adjacent barley-field, that they might not impede the growth of the corn. It would have been safer to scramble over such a fence, than to take it in the stroke. The Duke's mare, however, attempted to cover all at one spring, and cleared the wall; but lighting among the stones on the other side, threw herself headlong, and turning in the air, came with great violence upon her rider, who had not lost his seat; he undermost, with his back on one of the large stones, and she crushing him with all her weight on his chest, and struggling with all her power to recover her legs. Let the reader but contemplate this situation, and he will not wonder that the accident was fatal, or that the Duke survived it only an hour and half. The mare disentangled herself, and galloped away. The Duke sprang upon his feet, and attempted to follow her, but soon found himself unable to stand, and fell into the arms of Mr. Farrel, who had run to his succour, and
