Closing of the Howff.
An order has been issued, on the representation of Secretary Sir Geo. C. Lewis, to the effect that his recommendation "that burials be forthwith discontinued in the said Burial Ground," will be taken into consideration by a Committee of the Lords of her Majesty's most honourable Privy Council, on the 14th day of September next. The order was yesterday published by the Sheriff-Clerk on the doors of the Parish Church and at the Town House, and the Act requires that the Crown Agent give a similar notice in the Edinburgh Gazette.
