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
Mra. Cress horn Mi-w Marian Evans, late
the reputed wife et" Geerge Henry Ijewes,

novelists, bewail with her publication in
JJlneK-ivewt. el. the " Scenes et Clerical Lire,''
signed Geerge Eliet," and " Adam Bftle,"
wliich followed, established her fame. Siuce
then "The Mill en the Fless," "Silas Marner."
" Roinehi," "Felix Helt," " Middleuiarch"
and ' Daniel Dereuda, " novels appearing at
Intel vals, have .sustained her reputatleii and
each lias been received with increased intere.-t
and rewarded with the mnnitleent compensa cempensa compensa

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

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.
