Return of the killed and wounded in the ships under the command of Sir George Bridges Rodney, K. B. &c. &c. &c. on the 9th and 12th of April 1782.
The ship "Anson," CAPT. BLAIR.---CAPT. BLAIR killed; 2 seamen killed and 13 wounded.
....total for all ships: 230 killed, 759 wounded.
(The above mentioned battle in which Capt. Blair, was killed was known as
" the Battle of the Saints". )
Battle of the Saints during the War of the American Revolution.
Following the American victory at Yorktown in 1781, the war moved to the West Indies where a French fleet of 33 war ships commanded by Comte de Grasse began escorting an invasion force of 150 ships towards Jamaica. Between Guadeloupe and Dominica, the French encountered a British force of 37 war ships commanded by Admiral George Rodney. On April 9th 1782, the two fleets engaged in a long range gun duel, each fleet tried
maneuvering for an advantage over the following two days. Three French vessels were put out of action due to collisions, then on the morning of April 12th both fleets engaged in the major battle. The British broke the French line and De Grasse failed to reform the ships in line. After the day's battle he surrendered his flag ship Ville de Paris to Admiral Lord Hood on HMS Barfleur. Admiral Rodney in his flag ship HMS Formidable engaged with other Royal Navy ships against four French ships of the line, the rest of the French fleet scattered. De Grasse was the first French naval commander ever to be taken in combat.
The Battle of the Saints has been recognized as one of the twelve most interesting naval battles in history (Creswell, 1972, Chap.12; Chatterton, 1975, Chap.5; Mahan, 1980, Chap.9). It prevented France from sending another fleet to North America for months, and allowed British warships to control American coastal waters. By giving Britain command of the sea, it provided Britain with one of its few bargaining points in the negotiations culminating in the Treaties of Paris. De Grasse's nephew, also a naval officer and ex-prisoner of war, arrived at Versailles on 17 August. He brought the extraordinary news that Lord Shelburne, who was now Prime Minister, had asked Lieutenant-General de Grasse to convey to France Shelburne's own terms of peace (Dull, 1975, p.293). The Treaties between Britain and America, and between Britain, France, and Spain, were signed at Versailles on 3rd September 1783, little more than two months after the Royal Society of Edinburgh held its first general meeting.

Any one who intends to be a purchaser may be satisfied as to the clearness of the lease and rent-roll, by applying to the said Francis McBride at Loughgeel, or to Mr. John Mc. Caa of Duneny, near Clough, in said county, any time before the day of sale.--The purchaser to be put in possession of the rents at may next, and of the lease immediately at the time of sale. March 12th, 1782. To be continued three time.

Whereas some evil-minded person or persons some time ago wrote a libel and affixed upon the Market-House of Newtown-Ards, in which the creditors of James Thompson, Brewer, in said town, are desired to come and lay hold on him, otherwise they would be losers, as he was upon the last brink of failing; and since they have spread a report that his doors were shut, and his gods to be sold by auction on Monday the 23d of this month.
Now we the undernamed inhabitants of Newtown-Ards and its neighborhood, having sufficient evidence to believe, that such reports are utterly false and groundless, and have proceeded from envy: in testimoney of our respect for said James Thomson, and of our abhorrence of such base proceedings, do hereby declare that we are determined to give him every assistance in our power to bring the offender to justice; in order to which we promise to pay the several sums annexed to our names, to any person or persons who will, within six months from this date, discover on and prosecute to conviction the person or persons guilty of writing and putting up said libel, and publishing said report. Given under our hands at Newtown-Ards, this 24th December, 1782.

Extract from DR. BLAIR's Sermon on the Duties of the Young most humbly recommended to attention.---Vol. 1. P. 319.
"Modesty is one of the chief ornamnets of youth, and has ever been esteemed a presage or rising merit. When entering on the career of life, it is your part, not to assume the reins as yet into your hands; but, to commit yourself to the guidance of the more experienced, and to become wise by the wisdom of those who have gone before you.
"Of all the follies incident to youth, there are none which, either deform its present appearance, or blast the prospect of its future prosperity, more than self conceit, presumption and obstinacy. By checking its natural progress in improvement, they fix it in long immaturity, and frequently produce mschief's which can never by repaired. Yet these are vices too commonly found among the Young. Big with enterprize, and elated by hope, they resolve to trust for success to none but themselves. Full of their own abilities, they deride the admonitions which are given them by their friends, as the timorous suggestions of age. Too wise to learn, too impatient to deliberate, too forward to be restrained, they plunge, with precipitate indiscretion, into the midst of all the dangers with which life abounds. "Seest thou a young man wise in his own conceit? "There is more hope of al fool than of him." Positive as you now are in your opinions, and confident in your assertions, be assured that the time approaches when both men and things will appear to you in a different light.
"Many characters which you now admire will, by and by, sink in your esteem; and many opinions, of which you are, at present, most tenacious, will alter as you advance in years. Distrust, therefore, that glare of your youthful presumption, which dazzles your eyes. Abound not in your own sense. Put not yourself forward with too much eagerness; nor imagine that, by the impetuosity of juvenile ardour, you can overturn systems that have been long established, and change the face of the world. Learn not to think more highly of yourselves than you ought to think, but to think soberly. By patient and gradual progression in improvement, you may , in due time, command lasting esteem. But, by assuming, at present, a tone of superiority, to which you have not title, you will disgust those, whose approbation it is most important to gain. Forward vivacity may fit you to be the companion of an idle hour. More solid qualities must recommend you to the wise, and mark you out for importance and consideration in subsequent life."

The receipt of the valuable BULSE lately received by Mr. Hastings from the Nabob Nizam Ally Cawn, having made a considerable noise, and various conjectures having been formed on its critical appearance, the following letter from Mr. Hastings to Major Scott, will throw great light upon the subject.
"My Dear Scott, 2d June, 4 o'clock
"I HAVE Just received a packet of such apparent importance, as alarms me for the consiquences of keeping it in my possession; and I therefore give you this unseasonable trouble, to request that you will take the earliest possible mans to communicate this information to Lord Sydney, with the following circumstances relating to it, which are all that I yet know concerning it.
"The Packet was delivered to me by MR. BLAIR, brother-in-law to Mr. Richard Johnson, and I have given him my receipt for it. It was directed to me; I opened it, and found it to contain an English indorsed paper,
resealed, which I have not opened, a letter from the Nabob Nizam Ally Cawn to the King, a letter from the same Nabob to myself, damaged and scarce legible, if legible; and a small bulse sealed with three (or I believe four) seals, bearing the Nabob's principal title. These are all much soiled with the sea water, having been originally sent on board the Hinchinbrooke, and recovered from the wreck. Besides the above, there were a letter of a more recent date, from the same Nabob to me, and other English papers. I
guess the purport of the effaced letter to be a commission to me to deliver the letter to the King, and most probably the bulse with it, the contents of which I have not a clue to conjecture. Supposing that it may contain something of value, and in that case of no small value, I think it neither consulent with my interest or credit, to keep it an hour longer in my custody; than absolute necessity may require, and therefore request that I may be relieved from the charge; and that for that purpose you will be so good as to endeavour to obtain Lord Sydney's permission that you may deliver the packet, with all its contents to him; concluding, that while the present enquiry lasts, his Lordship would prefer that mode to my own personal attendance.
By various causes Major Scott had not an interview with Lord Sydney, until the 13th inst. when the valuable present was formally made known.

Lastly as to his late Lordships funeral, it was managed by the said Sir James (joynet executor, with his eldest brother, to the said defuncts will) as the alteration of his coat armoriall had been. I here transcribe from his pen the order of it as concerted betwen him and Ulster K. at Arms, and Albon Leveret, Athlon (whose acquittances for fees I have) being his Pursuivant. The solemnity was performed with all the pomp that the rules of Heraldry would admitt, and decency did require, for preparations threunto no time was wanting, his late Lordship (as hath been said) dying in May 1636, and his corps being embalmed and rolled in wax sear cloths, was close coffined (no more not Lord or Montgomery) was locked up in a turret, till a week before its interment, at which time (being in September the said last mentioned yeare) it was carryed privately by night, a mile out of town and in a large tent layd in state, and attended with formalitys of wax candles, frends and servants, till the day of the procession on foot from the said tent to the church.
The persons who made up this procession were all cloathed in blacks (called in Scotland dueil weeds, from this word dueil borrowed from the French signifying mourning) and were seen in the following order which the reader may please to peruse, if he doe not already known well enough the manner of burying Viscounts, which is viz.
Imprimis, two conductors (with black truncheons) named Thos. Kennedy and John Lokart, both of Comer.
