Mr. Lindsay was born in Glasgow, in the month of September, in the year 1751 ; he was baptized on the day he was born, in the Trot) Church, and on that day, the female who carried little Andrew to the church, either in the act of presenting for, or receiving the infant after baptism, accidentally brought his eyes in contact with the frill of her sleeve ; this unfortunately produced a disorder in the organs of vision,. that speedily terminated in total blindness. At the age of twelve months he was re- moved to Paisley, where he continued till his death. While young, few equalled him in climbing trees, and discovering birds' nests ; he distinguished colours by the smell ; he- was an expert swimmer, and loved every athletic exercise. He was fond of fishing in. the neighbotiring waters • and for this purpose he dressed his own flies ; and, however strange it may appear, the fact is no less true, that Mr. Lindsay often walked from: Paisley to the West Ferry, a distance of eight miles, to enjoy a day's fishing. His taste• was as refined as his intellect was vigorous. But it was the intellectual powers pos- sessed by Mr. Lindsay that rendered him an object of admiration. He taught the violin,. the flute, and common fife ; he could also speak the Hebrew, Greek, Latin, French, and Spanish languages. He spoke and taught French with a grammatical accuracy that astonished. learned individuals from that country.-ScottIsPaper.
