OBITUARY.

MR. JUSTICE JACKSON. Sir Henry Mather Jackson, baronet, of Llaatilio Court, Monmouthshire, one of the newly-appointed judges of the Queen's Bench Division, died at 61, Portland-place, on the 8th inst., at the age of fifty. The deceased was the eldest son of the late Sir William Jackson, who was M.P. for Newcastle'nnder-Lyme, and afterwards for North Derbyshire, and who was created a baronet in 1869, and his mother was a daughter ot the late Lieutenant Thomas Hughei, R.N. He was horn in 1831. and succeeded (0 the baronetcy upon his lather's death in 1876. He was educate! at Harrow, and at Trinity College, Oxford, where he graduated second class in classics in 1853, and he was called to the bar at Lincoln's-inn in Michaelmas Term, 1355. He was at an early period successful in obtaining business, and for many years he had a large junior practice in the Court of Chancery. He also attended the sittings of the Lincaater Court of Chancery, where he was for some years one of the acknowledged leaders. In 1873 he received a silk gown from Lord Selborne, when he selected the court of VioeChancellor Bacon, where he has been the leader since Mr. Kay withdrew from regular praotice in that court. In 1S65 he was an unsuccessful candidate for the borough of Birkenhead in the Liberal interest. In July, 1867, he became a candidate for the representation of Coventry, and succeeded in defeating Mr. Alexander Staveley Hill, Q.C, at the general election. In December, 1868, he stood for the same borough in conjunction with the late Mr. Samuel Carter, but he lost his seat, Messrs. Eaton and Hill, the two Conservative candidates, being returned. Ho again stood for the borough with Mr. Carter in 1874, when he was returned second on the poll, Mr. Eaton being at the head; and at the general election of last year he stood with Mr. William Henry Wills, and was placed at the heid of the poll, the two Conservatives, Mr. Eaton and Mr. Kekewiob, Q.C, being defeated. Sir H. Jackson gave a steady support to Mr. Gladstone, whether in or out of office, and he was a very useful member of the House. He introduced and carried the Partition Act of 1876. He was e man of very amiable and genial disposition, and was universally popular both in his profession, and in the House of Commons. Sir H. Jackson served as a member of the Royal Commission on Cathedral Establishments. He had been engaged in many important company cases, including Prtk v. Gurney, and Oakes v. Tarquand, in the House of L^rds. He had also a large experience in bankruptcy and in patent suits. He had been spoken of as likely to become Solicitor-General in the event of the promotion of either of the present law officers, and his selection for one of the vacant puisne judgeships occasioned no surprise. When he accepted the appointment he was too ill to take his seat, but it had been hoped that he would be able to be • worn in within a few days. Sir H. Jackson was a bencher of Lincoln's-inn, and a magistrate and deputylieutenant for Monmouthshire. He was married in 1854 fo the daughter of Mr. Thomas Buddicum Blackburne, of Grange House, Birkenhead, and he leaves two sons and three daughters. He is succeeded in the baronetcy by his eldest son, Henry Mather Jackson, who was born in 1855.
