John Bruce, Esq. of Grangehill and Falkland, died at his seat of Nuthill, in the county of Fife, on Sunday the 16th of April, in the 82d year of his very active life. He was the heir-male and undoubted representative of the ancient family of Bruce of Earlshall, one of the oldest cadets of the illustrious house of Bruce; but he did not succeed to the estate of his ancestors, which was transferred by marriage into another family. He inherited, from his father, only the small property of Grangehill, near Kinghorn, the remains of a largar estate, which his family acquired by marriage with a grand-daughter of the renowned Kirkcaldy of Grange.

Mr Bruce received a liberal education at the University of Edinburgh, where he was early distinguished for his abilities and extensive erudition; the consequence of which was, that, at an early age, he was appointed Professor of Logic in that University. He rescued that science from the trammels of the Aristotelian School, and the syllogistic forms of arguing and teaching, and his lectures, particularly on pneumatology, were much celebrated. At the same time, during the

absence of Dr Adam Fergusson, he was prevailed on, at very short notice, to teach his class of moral philosophy, and, during the greatest part of that winter, besides revising and often recasting his own lectures, he actually composed in the evening the lecture which he was to deliver in the class next forenoon. Soon after this, he resigned his chair in the University, having, through the interest of the late Lord Melville, to whose family he was distantly related, received a grant of the reversion, along with the late Sir James Hunter Blair, of the patent of King's Printer and Stationer for Scotland, an office, however, which did not open to them for fifteen or sixteen years.

Lord Melville was well aware of Mr Bruce's abilities, and duly appreciated them, and, in order to give the public the advantage of them, he procured for him the offices of Keeper of the State-Paper Office and Historiographer to the East-India Company. Mr Bruce was also for a short time Secretary to the Board of Control, and sat in Parliament for some years. In these various offices he was not idle. The place of Keeper of the State-Paper Office had been made by his predecessors very much of a sinecure, the conse

quence of which was, that the valuable papers therein deposited were in the greatest confusion; but, by his indefatigable exertions, and methodical arrangements, the whole were soon brought into the greatest order, so as to be available to the different departments of the Government, whose chiefs had occasion to refer to them.

Mr Bruce was the author of several valuable works, some of which, though printed by Government, were not published for sale, and therefore are not so extensively known as they deserve; and it is believed that he has left in manuscript, at the State-Paper Office, several memoirs in re lation to that department. His printed works are, Elements of Ethics, being the Heads of his Lectures on Moral Philosophy; Plans for the Government of British India; Report on the Renewal of the East-India Company's exclusive Privileges, 1794; Report on the Internal Defence of England against the Spanish Armada in 1588, with a view to the Defence of Britain in 1796, on which Mr Pitt grounded his measures of the Provisional Cavalry and Army of Reserve; Report on the Union between England and Scotland, with a view to the projected Union with Ireland; Annals of the East-India Company.

Mr Bruce, when a young man attending the University of Edinburgh, was one of six distinguished individuals, who, in 1764, founded the Speculative Society, of whom he was the last survivor.

During the latter years of his life, he spent se veral months at his seat of Nuthill; on which estate, and his extensive purchases of Falkland and Myres, he was carrying on improvements on a most extended and liberal scale, giving employment to great numbers of tradesmen and labourers of all descriptions. He also laid out a large sum in repairing what remains of the Palace of Falkland, so as to preserve, for centuries to come, that relick of royalty in Scotland. In short, he entered on the profession of a country gentleman with the same ardour and ability which he displayed in the various other situations which he filled; and his death will be deeply lamented by those friends who enjoyed his society, and had opportunities of appreciating his highly-cultivated understanding, as well as by the inhabitants on his estate, to whose wants and comforts he so materially contributed.


David died at Brussels, on the 29th of December 1825, at a quarter before ten o'clock in the morning. On the 19th, he went to the theatre to see Tartuffe, and remained during the whole performance. This imprudence was fatal. From that moment disorder triumphed. He was almost always delirious; but whether in possession or not of his faculties, his conversation, his gestures, his motions, all related to the arts. One of his pupils, an eminent painter, called to see him two days before his death. David gave him some advice respecting a picture he was about. The energy with which he made his observations fatigued him, and his voice became so feeble, that he found it impossible to speak any longer; but he continued to express, by the position of his body and by the movement of his hands, his opinion with regard to one of the figures in the picture. On the day after, a proof was brought to him of the engraving after his Leonidas, by M. Langier. This roused him from a kind of lethargy into which he had sunk. "It is well,' he remarked;" bring it nearer to me, for my sight is already so weak!" After having examined it, he ordered it to be pinned against a wall op. posite to him, and his arm-chair to be wheeled towards it. Then, rallying the little strength which he retained, he pointed out, with the end of his stick, the parts which he thought deserving of remark. Gradually he became animated; his criticisms were very important, and full of taste; he resorted to the fively and picturesque expres sions of all men of genius, who speak of an art in which they excel; and even asked for a crayon, in order to touch several figures which he thought the graver had not sufficiently kept down. His friends and his children entreated him to tire himself no more on the subject, but to take some rest. He yielded to their wishes, and from that moment he never spoke. His funeral was cele brated with great pomp, and was attended by a crowd of the most eminent men in Brussels, and by deputations from Ghent, Bruges, and other towns. David's pencils and palette were laid on the coffin, as well as his costume as a member of the Institute, and his cross of the Legion of Ho
