Lieutenant Steuart was for fome years attached to the Residency with Madajee Sindia, and, fince the middle of the year 1790, has ferved as affiftant to the Refident at the court of the Nizam; in which stations his abilities, natural and acquired; and his knowledge of the po litics and languages of Hindoflan, enabled him to fulfil his duty with credit to himfelf and advantage to the public interefts. As a furveyor, his merit was confpicuous, and in particular, his furvey of the rout from Agra to Hyderabad through paths till then un xplored, has proved a valuable acquifition to the Geography of India. His conduct in every fituation, whether referred to a public or private life, obtained him the approbation of his fuperiors, the refpect and affection of his acquaintances; an uncommon liberality of mind, joined to manners the most amiable; and an ardent attachment to the friends of his choice, will ever endear to them his memory, and keep alive in their minds the fincereft forrow for his lofs.Calcutta Monthly Journal.
