April 2. At Lisbon, Major Angus Macdonald, in the Portuguese and British service.

3. At Alyth, James Sandy, the celebrated Alyth mechanic. The originality of genius and eccentricity of character which distinguished this remarkable person, were, perhaps, never surpassed. Deprived at an early age of the use of his legs, he contrived, by dint of ingenuity, not only to pass his time agreeably, but to render himself a useful member of society. He soon displayed a taste for mechanical pursuits, and contrived as a work-shop for his operations a sort of circular bed, the sides of which being raised about 18 inches above the clothes, were employed as a platform for turning lathes, table vices, and cases for tools of all kinds. His genius for practical mechanics was universal. He was skilled in all sorts of turning; and constructed several very curious lathes, as well as clocks and musical instruments of every description, no less admired for the sweetness of their tone than the elegance of their execution. He excelled, too, in the construction of optical instruments; and made some reflecting telescopes, the specula of which were not inferior to those finished by the most eminent London artists. He suggested some impor tant improvements in the machinery for spinning flax; and we believe he was the first who made the wooden-jointed snuff-boxes, generally called Laurencekirk boxes, some of which, fabricated by this self-taught artist, were purchased, and sent as presents to the Royal Family. For upwards of 50 years he quitted his bed only three times, and on these occasions his house was either inundated with water, or threatened with danger from fire. Naturally possessed of a good constitution, and an active, cheerful turn of mind, his house was the general coffee-room of the village, where the affairs both of church and state were discussed with the utmost freedom. In consequence of long confinement, his countenance had rather a sickly cast, but it was remarkably expressive, and would have afforded a fine subject for the pencil of Wilkie, particularly when he was surrounded by his country friends. This singular man had acquired, by his ingenuity and industry, an honourable independence, and died possessed of considerable property. In short, his history holds out this very instructive lesson-that no difficulties are too great to be overcome by industry and perseverance; and that genius, though it should sometimes miss the distinction it deserves, will seldom fail, unless by its own fault, to secure competency and respectability. He was married only about three weeks be fore his death.

5. At Spa, Lieutenant-Colonel D. I. Cameron, late of the first royal veteran battalion.
