April 8. At Rio de Janeiro, whither he had accompanied the Royal Family and Government of Portugal,Gen. John Forbes of Skellater, in Aberdeenshire, in the 76th year of his age. General Forbes was the senior General Officer in the service of that crown, General and Governor of Rio de Janeiro, a Counsellor of War, General of Cavalry, and Knight Grand Cross of the illustrious orders of Avis, in Portugal, and of Charles III. in Spain. This much res pected veteran was a Lieutenant at the siege of Maastricht in 1748. He served allthese campaigns, as well as the Seven Years War, at the conclusion of which he entered into the service of Portugal, where he contributed much to the establishing the tactics of Frederick the Great (then introduced into all the armies of Europe) in the Portuguese army, under the immediate protection and friendship of Count de Lippe. During a period of nearly 50 years, he distinguished himself in that country by his activity, his zeal, and his incorruptible integrity, to which last circumstance it was perhaps owing, that he enjoyed, uninterruptedly, the favour of four successive sovereigns. The tears and unfeigned sorrow of the present reigning Prince were the most affecting testimonials of his attachment to the General, as the public and sincere regrets of the people were of his real worth. Indeed he was a virtuous and an honourable man; and, as a soldier, possessed undaunted courage, indefatigable activity, promptitude, and decision. He comnianded, with reputation, the Portuguese army in Roussillon, at the commencement of the Revolutionary War; and he will hereafter be classed among those of our countrymen who have added to the respectability of the British national character among foreigners.
