Before the commencement of the American. War Lord George had rifen to the rank of Lieutenant, and, by a hu._ mane condne't and obliging difpoiition, had acquired great. Popularity among the feamen. He was t/cazlors' frzend. - Butwhat procured him the c?eem of the Nag/y, pro. Duced a contrary effea at the Admiralty, where, inflead; of humanity, and manly independence, the cruelefi dif. Cipline, and a fawning fyc hephancy to thole in power, were the farell pall'ports to preferment. Partly from a dif agreement with Lord Sandwich, then at the head. Of the Admiralty, and partly from a, refolution never to imbrue his hands in the blood of men firuggling for freedom, he religned his cornmiffion trampled his cockade under foot,' and retired in difgufi to his native Country. Soon after his quitting the fervice he made the tour of Scotland, and. Palled a fumnier in the Hebrides, not in coltee'c'ng fhells,' or in meafuring mountains, but in aflocrating with. The People, and making comparifons between man in a, rude, and man in a civilized ?ate. He Wore their drefs, talked their language enquired into their wrongs, and by his gentle manners and attachment to their rural mode of life,~ became a great favourite With the Highlanders. He was thenia the bloom of youth, fond of mufic and dancing, of a model}, unaffuming demeanour, and his ail ions were uniformly regulated by the {irifieft rules of propriety. Few vifitants were ever received with more attention in the Highlands, none were ever more beloved; the na. Fives were wont to thank heaven for a man, who had re folution to Oppofe the ulurpations of the crown, and for titude to refill the vices oi the age.
