On the 17th died suddenly, of apoplexy, at his house in Jamesstreet, Buckingham-gate, RearAdmiral Burney, F. R. S., in his 72nd year, eldest son of the learned and elegant historian of music, and brother to two very distinguished persons of the present age, madame d'Arblay, the justly celebrated novelist, and the late Dr. Charles Burney, a member of that triumvirate of profound scholars which has adorned our own immediate times. Admiral Burney entered into the royal navy at a very early period of his life, and first as midshipman, afterwards as lieutenant, accompanied captain Cook in the two last of those enterprising, perilous, and important voyages which have reflected so much honour on the late reign, and proved so beneficial to the general interests of mankind. He was one of the most scientific and best geographers that this country has

produced, of which his laborious, accurate, and voluminous history of Voyages of Discovery, his account of the Eastern Navigations of the Russians, and other works, bear the amplest testimony. As an officer, he was particularly remarkable for his great and enlightened humanity to those under his command; at a period, too, when severity in discipline was generally considered a proof of zeal, of spirit, and of ability, and when the wiser and more generous opinions and practice of the present day would have been treated as heterodox and pernicious. This humanity was characteristic of him, and, united to the most inflexible integrity and love of truth,

attended him through all the

offices of life. He will be long remembered, by an extensive circle of friends, who loved him for his disinterestedness and honesty— for the simplicity and kindness of his manners, and the cheerfulness of his disposition—for his goodnature and genuine humour in conversation, and for his true, though antiquated, hospitality. The following passage in a letter written by Dr. Johnson to Mrs. Thrale, upon captain Burney's promotion and appointment to the Bristol 50 gun ship, in 1781, shows how great an interest the naval officer had excitcd in the breast of the learned moralist:— “I am willing, however, to hear that there is happiness in the world, and delight to think on the pleasure diffused among the Burneys. I question if any ship upon the ocean goes out attended with more good wishes than that which carries the fate of Burney.” December. At his house at Croyden, W. B. Clinton, esq., of
