In the same year he was appointed chief justiceof the Queen's Bench; and he died on the 25th of November 1876. Whiteside was a man of handsome presence, attractive personality and cultivated tastes. In 1848, after a visit to Italy, he published "Italy in the Nineteenth Century"; and in 1870 he collected and republished some papers contributed many years before to periodicals, under the title "Early Sketches of Eminent Persons".
