GEORGE ELIOT UbAI), Tin Sudden Tlieuh ulet uiul Painless Enil of tite Great Novelist. Londen, Dec. 23. Mrs. Cress (" Geerge Eliet "), the distinguished novelist, died at ten o'clock"last night. Her death was iiuict and almost painless. She was seized with a chill en Sunday Inst while in the best of health and spirits. The disease, how ever, did net create alarm until six o'clock last evening. Mra. Cress horn Mi-w Marian Evans, late the reputed wife et" Geerge Henry Ijewes, though net joined tnhuvliil wedlock with him. nun iuiueuh 111 inerature uniier tlie iinm tic plume et" "Gcergu Eliet." was a native el Warwickshire, En.. and was born there in 1S-.M. She 11:11 the daughter of a country curate and early displayed that, genius for literary composition the ilevelepcinent of which ranked her as the great.t female intellect, produced in any Eng lish speaking nice.

Her ambi tion has always been te excel In poetry, but none of her poetical productions, save "The SnarDli Gynsey," has ever attained a high plac- iu public laver. By louimeii consent "Geerge Eliet" has held the highest place in modern tlctien and most erities grant that the history of literature re cords no eiiud intellect since Shakspeare. Years agen literary sympathy attracted her and Geerge Henry Lewes te each ether, but the existence of his lirst dissolute wife (tlie condoning et whose "lirst offense" by him was a lar te their divorce ) forbade his legal union with "Geerge Eliet." They agreed, however, te live together as man and wife without fur ther cemp.ict than of mutual agreement and they did, until he died a year or se age. Stie mourned his less devotedly and retired from literature, until last spring the world of letters was staitlcd te hear that she had wed Mr. Cre9, some twenty years her junior, and an old friend et herself and hushaud. His tastes were congenial and their union has been a happy one, devoted te the gr.itilicatien of their mutual love for art and literature. Ens. iKTiXLiuBxcnn. J SAD r.:AKINE DISASTEK.
