DEATHS.

Jan. 26. 1814, were interred in the Protestant burying-ground at Quebec, with the Military honours due to his rank, the remains of Thomas Nairne, Esq. late Captain in His Majesty's 49th regiment of foot, who fell at the head of his company, in the battle at Chrystler's farm, Upper Canada, on the memorable 11th of November 1813, charging the Artillery of the American Army under General Wilkinson, destined for the invasion of Lower Canada, in which action, 5000 men were completely defeated by 800 British Soldiers, under the command of Lieut.-Col. Morrison of the 89th regiment. Captain Nairne was the only surviving son of the late Colonel John Nairne, who so eminently distinguished himself on different occasions, but particularly at Louisburg, and in three sieges of Quebec: he was Seignior of the Seigniory of Murray Bay, in the Province of Lower Canada, which had been conceded to the Colonel soon after the conquest of Canada, as a reward for his services: his example he most nobly emulated; whilst yet a boy, he embraced the profession of Arms, and first obtained the rank of Captain in the 10th regiment of foot, in which he served at Gibraltar and in Sicily, from thence he exchanged into the Royal Newfoundland regiment, and afterwards into the 49th regiment. He was killed by a discharge of grape shot passing through his head and heart. He has left a Mother and three Sisters to bewail his loss: his brave, generous, and humane conduct, had justly endeared him to his brother officers and soldiers, by whom, and by all who had the pleasure of his acquaintance, he will be long and sincerely regretted.
