ty he was once more to cxciiange the chcar- 
ful haunts of men, the ufe of open air, and 
the ufe of liis (.wn limbs; and wr.erehe 
was condemned to expiate the dilloyal ha- 
tred and contempt, which he had dared to 
fliow towards the overweening and felo-* 
nious arrogance of ilaves in oHice, and 
minions in authority ; here he paded the 
£rfl night without bed or f  od. The next 
morning, hi* humane keeper, the Major, 
appeared. 'I'he plaintiff demanded, “ why 
he was fo imprifoned complained ot hun- 
ger and demanilcd the jail allowance.— 
Major Sandys replied with a torrent ot 
abnfe, which he concluded by fiying— 
“Your crime is your infolencc to Major 
Sirr; however, he difdains to trample up- 
on you — you may appeafe liiin by proper 
ana contrite fubmilTion ; but unlefs you do 
fo, you fliall rot where you a'-e. 1 tell you 

this, that if government does not protebi 
us, we Avil! not protefl them— You will 
prohablv, (for I know your ungrateful 
liifctnirfs) attempt to get out by an Ha- 
beas Corpus, but in that you will find your- 
fH f miftaken as fuch a rirfcal deferves.”— 
Elevey was infolent enougJi to ifTiie a Ha- 
beas Corpus, and a return was made upon 
it— “that Hevey was in cullody under a 
warrant from Gen. Craig, on a charge of 
treafon.” That this return was a grofs 
falfehood, fabricated by Sirr, I am inftrnc- 
ted tr affert. Let hiiniiroveit if he can. — 
The Judge before whom this return was 
brought, felt, that he had no authority to 
liberate the unhappy piifuiier; and thus, 
by a mod inhuman and audacious lie, my 
client was again remanded to the horrid 
nianlion of peflilence and famine. Mr. 
Curran proceeded to deferibe the feelings 
cf Mr. Hevey— -the defpair of his friends — 
the ruin of his afl'iirs— the infoience of 
Sandvs— his offer to fet him at large, on 
condition of making an abjeft fubmiffion 
to Sirr-— the indignant rejection of Hevey 
—the lupnlicat’on of his father and filler, 
radier to fiibinit to an enemy, liowever hafe 
; od odious tlr-iu perifli in fiich a fituation ; 
the repngnanct of Hevey-— :hc repetition 
of kind reinouRrance, and the final fub- 
mifTion of Hevey to their entreaties his 
figning a fiibr iinon, didlated by Sandy 
and his enl irgement from confinement. - 
n'hus, faid Mr. Curran, was he kicked from 
jail into the mafs of his fellow-llaves, by 
yielding to the tender intreaties ot thofe 
kindred that loved him, to lign 'what was 
in fail, a releafe of his claim to tiie com- 
mon right? of an human creature, by hum- 
bling himfelf to the brutal ' infoience of a 
pampered Have. But he did not fuffer 
the di'.nitv of his nature to be fubdued !iy 
itsikiivlnefs ; he has been enlarged, and has 
r r.nght the prefent adlion. As to the 
f ifls that he had Rated, Mr, Curran faid he 
would make a few obfervations : it might 
be faid for tlie defendant, that much cf 
what w IS Rated, may not appear in proof. 
'Eo that, he faid, he would not have fo R-a- 
ted, if he had not fecn Major Sandys im 
court ; he had therefore put them in 
a way, which he thought was moR likely 
to rouzf him to a defence of his own char- 
a£ler, if lie dared to be examined as a wit- 
Tiefs. He had, he truRed made him fed, 
lie had ro way of efcaping iinivcrfal detef- 
tation, but by denying thefe charges, if 
th?y were falfc, and if they were not denied, 
being thus publicly aif rted, his entire cafe 
was admitted — his original oppreRion in 
the provoR was admitted— his robbey of 
the cup was admittfxl— liis robbery of the 
mare was admitted — the lie fo aiidacioiilly 
forged on the Habra s Cojuis was admitted 
—the extortion of the infamous apology 



yourfelves, and the defendant, to which f 
RiouH wilhto fay a word. Yon may per- 
haps think your perfons unfafe, if yon 
find i verdidl as you do — I know he might 
fend you to the provoR, as he has done the 
defendant, and forge a return on any writ 
you might ilTue for your deliverance— -I 
knew there is no fpot in this devoted na- 
tion (except that on which we now arc) 
where the Rory of opprelfion ran be told 
or heard; but I think you can have no 
well founded apprehenlions. There is a 



fucli confideratlons; they fpring from a

pendence. But mv advice to you, is to give 
the full amount of the damages laid in the 
declaration; and Til tell you the rcafon 
why I give you that advice: I think no 
damages could be excrllivc, either as a com- 
penfation for the injury of the plaiiuiflf, or 
as a pnnilhment for the favage barbarity ot 
the dcfeudaiit, but my reafons for giving 
you that advice, lye much deeper than

hundred worthy perfons would he ready tojdidt for the plaintiff; for in wlcat 'iifUnce 



deny their exi Renee upon their honor, or if 
neceffary, upon their oath. 

1 cannot alfo but oh ferve to you, contin- 
ued Mr. (]urran, that the real Rate of our 
country is more forcibly impreffed on the 
attention of another, by a vcidiil on fuch 
a lubjeft as this, than it could be by any 
general defeription : Wlien you endeavor 



have you ever feen any man fo elfe(flu?lly 
■accredited and recommended, as b-y the 
public execration ? What a man for in- 
Raiice might not O’Brien have been, if 
the envy of the gibbet had not arrelled 
the career of his honors and preferments? 
In every point of view, therefore, I recom- 
mend to you to find, and to find liberally 



to convey an idea of a greater number ofifor the plaintiff, I have founded my ad- 



barharians, pradlifing a great number of 
cruelties upon an incalculable number of 



means of knowing your real condition, ex- jfnfferers, nothing defined or fpecific finds 



cept from the information tiiat Ihe may 
accidentally derive from tranfadlions of a 
public nature. No printer would daie to 
piiblilh the thoufand inRances of atrocity, 
which we have witnelfed as hideous as the 
prefent, nor any one of them, unlcls he 
did it in fome fort of confidence, that he 
could fcarcclv be made a public facrifice 
by brutal force, for publilhing, what was 
openly proved in a court of juRice. Mr. 
Curran liere made fome pointed olifi-rva- 
tions on the Rate of a country, where the 



its way to the heart, nor is any fentiincnt 
excited, fave that of a general erratic un- 
appropriate commiferation. Iffor inRance 
vou vvi filed to convey to the mind of an 
Englifh matron, the horrois of that direful 
period, when, in defiance of the remon- 
Rrances of our ever to he lamented Abef- 
crornhy, our poor people were furrendered 



vice on the real clrruniRanccs of your fitu- 
ation ; I have not attempted to lUmulatc 
you into afiy filly heiflic of fancied liberty. 
Ido not call upon you to expofe } . ur- 
felves by the affectation of vindicating the 
caufe of freedom, ati l humanity ; much 
lefsdo I wifli to exhibit oiirfelves to thofe, 
whofe property we are, as indignant and 
contumacious,' under their authority. Far 
from it, they arc unqiieRIcnably the pro- 
prietors of us, they are entitled of right to 
drive us, and 



o the licentious brutality of the foldiery.j drive us, and to work us; but we may be 
by the authority of the Rate; you would | permitted modeRly to fuggcR, that for 
vainly attempt to give her a general pic-jtl.eir own fuki s.and for their owu interefl, 
ture of lull, and rapine, and murder, and ! a line of moderation may be drawn. That 
freedom of the prefs is cxtingniRicd, and conflagration. By endeavoring to conipre- j there are exreffes of affliflion, that huma.n 
where anotlier nation, hy whole indclent.; I.eiul every tiling, von would convey no- i nature cannot bear. With refpedl to lier

and firmly think they cannot be ceclaimed 
to a Hate of peace. When I fee the con- 
duft ol\nan to man I believe it. When 1 
fee tlie HR of offences in every criminal 
code in Europe— when I compare the enor- 
mity of their crimes with the greater e- 
normity of their puniflimcnt, I retain no 
doubt upon the fuhjecl. But, if 1 could

wandering glances of the ravilher becomes 



ing on fpirit, which cannot be maintained, 
if Rie fuffers us to be broken down, by the 
malicious wantonnefs of her grooms and

ing, that the caufe was of no inconfidera- 
ble expeftation, and that in whatever light 
tlie jury confidered it; whether with ref- 
peft to the two countries, or to Ireland lln- 
gly, or to tlie parties concerned, or to their 
own fenfe of charafter and public duty, or 
to the natural confequences that muR flow 
from that event, they ought to confider it 
with the moR profound attention, before 
they agreed upon their verdift. 



dedhei felfas much as England ever diiFon 
the elevation of her IVntinicnt, and the re- 
finement of her morality. Yet what an 
odious fpeftatle did Hie cxliibit? Her bo- 
idm burning with the fury of rapine and 
tyranny ; her mouth full of the pious 
praifes of the living God, and her hands red 
with the blood of his innocent and devoted 
creatures. When I advife you therefore 
to mark your feelings of the cafe before 
yon, don’t think I mean, that you could 
make any general imprelfion on the moral- 
ity, or tendeinefs of the country, whole 
property wc arc become. I am not fo fool- 
ilh as to hope any fuch effeft ; praftical 
juRice and humanity arc virtues that re- 
quire labo: ious afts, and mortifying priva- 
tions ; expert not tlnerefore to find them ; 
appeal not to them. But there are princi- 
ples and feelings lubRitiued in their place, where the public calamity generates imps play relative to royalty^ when the C^orficaii

nor on the fcaffold. After the cord was 
fufpended round his neck, he fixed his 
eyes on the ground, and in a very audable 
tone addreffed them nearly as follows ; 

“ Fellow-Citizens, 

I come here, after 
having ferved my country faithfully, hon- 
orably, and ufefully ferved it, for thirty 
years and upwards, to fuffer death upon a 
fcaffold for a crime of which I proteft I 
I am no more guilty than one of you who 
are now hearing me. But though minif- 
ters know this as well as I do that I am 
not guilty, yet they avail thcmfelvcs of a 
legal pretext to deftroy a man becaufe he 
has been a friend to truth, to liberty and 
tojuflice — [there was a confiderablc huzza 
from part of the populace) becaufe he has 
been a friend to the poor and oppreffed. — 
But citizens I hope notwithftanding my

of freedom of humanity, and of juftice, 
■will finally triumph over falfehood tyran- 
ny and delufinn, and every principle hoffilc 
to the interefls of the human race.” 

About nine o’clock they were launched 
into eternity. Col. D. died without a 
ftruggle; but Broughton and Wood feemed 
to fuffer conliderably. After hanging half 
an hour they were cut down, and their 
heads being fevered from tlieir bodies, 
were exhibited to the populace, the execu- 
tioner exclaiming, relpeftivel v, “ I'his is

VIRGINIA ELECTION. 

John Clopton, republican, is r^-eledled a 
member of Congrefs from the flare of Vir- 
ginia. In Richmond he had no opponant. 

In the county of Frederick, in the fame 
hate. General Smith, republican, had 554 
votes, and Jofeph Sexton, 154. 

On the sthlnfl. an eleeftion was held at 
Spotfylvania court-houfe, (Virg.) when 
the votes were unanimous for John Daw- 
fonas member of the Houfe of Reprefenta- 
tives of the United States. Gjrn. Brooke 
was chofen flate fenator, and L. Stanard 
and D. C. Ker delegates. 

We underfland a confiderablc alarm pre- 
v'ails in Scotland, in confequence of the 
emigrations to America, of perfons, fome 
driven from their fmall farms by the ex- 
tenfien of llieep walks, and others invited 
away. The Earl of Selkirk has a grand 
projecl on hands. Blc has aftually enga- 
ged feveral hundreds or thoufands of 
Scots farmers to go to America, where he 
will purchafe lands. {Oracle) ■ 

A letter from Gracovia, of the 29th ult. 
fays, that the celebrated Chancellor of Po- 
land, Kcjlentay, who had been confined in 
the Auflrian .prifons lince the coalition 
war of 1794, had at length obtained his li- 
berty, and had been cfcorted to the con- 
fines of Silician Prulfia. He has received 
an invitation from the Emperor of Ruffia 
to fijourn at Pi tcrfburgh : as has alfo M. 
Unlien Nlemezcwitz (the former compan- 
ion of the celebrated Kofeiulko,) who hav- 
ing obtained a refpetlable elldblilhmcnt In 
America, had returned in order to fettle hi? 
family affairs. 

PHILADELPHIA, April 5- 

Paris papers to the 23d Feb. were recei 
ved in London, which announces the nice 
ling ol the Legiflative body on the 21ft. — 
The Monitcur of the 23rdcontains an offi- 
cial view of the prefent fituation ofthc Re- 
public, prepared for the Legiflative body. 
This important and curious paper is figncd 
by Bonaparte. It embraces a variety of 
objefts ; but which our "want of room obli- 
ges us to defer until to-morrow. *t Hates 
that upwards of 20,000 French nianufaclu 
lers, difperfed throughout Europe, have re- 
turned to their rd’peftive vocations in the 
republic. That “ St. Domingo had fub- 
mitted, and the authors of its troubles are 
in the power of France, every thing in 
Ihort announced the return of profperitv, 
when by a liorrid difeafe, it was devoted to 
renewed calamity ; but the plague that 
defolated the army has nov/ ceafed its rav. 
ages, and the forces that remain in the co- 
lony, together with thofe that will foon ar- 
rive, cannot fail to reflorc it to peace and 
profperity.” That “ Batavia is gradually 
regaining poffcHion of the colonies rcllored 
to her by the peace ; but she ought never 
to forget that France can be to her only 
the most useful friend, or the most dange- 
rous enemy.” In Ipeaking of the divi- 
fion of parties in England, it fays, “ One 
has concluaed the peace, and is decidcdlv 
inclined to maintain it; while the other 
has fworn an implacable enmity to France • 
hence arifes that fluctuation ^n opinions’, 
and in the Senate that attitude which is at 
once pacific and threatening. As long as 
this conteft of parties continues, there are 
certain prudential meafures neceffary on 
the part of the Republic. Five hundred 
thousand men must and ivill be ready to de- 
fend and avenge it.” 



now enters with gaiety into all the enjoy- 
ments and all the common ]flealnres of life. 
He has ceafed to carry tlie fnuff box on 
which was painted a fhip feattered by the 
florin, with the motto “ My poor country.” 
Blis friends and countrymen at Paris reg- 
ularly celebrate the annlverfary of his birth 
day. 

The firfl part of tlie French civil code 
was prefented to the Legiflative AlTembly 
by three of the government orators on the 
23d ult, Portalls, in a long fpeech to the 
affemhlv, developed the motives and ex- 
plained the principles of it. The code 
was ordered to be printed— I'lie principal 
perfons v/ho fuccclsfully oppofed it when 
it was lafl under dlfculfion, are no longer in 
either of the legiflative bodies— It will 
therefore be adopted without much oppo- 
fition. 

We had a crowd of arrivals at tl.is port 
yefterday, all of them with excellent pafTi-ges 
—To Capt. M ’Dongle, of the fhip Aclive, 
we are indebted for the latefl papers, be- 
ing a voluminous file of various Londoji 
prints to the 23d of February, fix davs 
later than thofe hitherto received. We 
are alfo obliged to tlie owner of the fliip 
Calliope, from Dartmouth, for Bell’s 
Weekly Mcffenger of the 20th, being the 
latefl paper received by this veflel. 

'Fhe latefl Englifli papers are occupied 
on the fubjeft of the late confpiracy ; 
and no fmall proportion of their contents 
is devoted to the affairs of America, rela- 
tive to the Miffiffippi. The fenfibility and 
indignation of this country, excited by the 
intraftiori of our treaty with Spain, is no- 
ticed in fuitable terms of commendation. 
The policy of Buonaparte in this trarifac- 
tion, appear, to be mpfl clearly perceived, 
and better underflood in England than on 
this fide the water. 

Captain Alorfe, of the Calliope, informs 
that although the utinofl tranquilitv pre- 
vailed in England, yet while he fay -at 
Dartmoiitli, orders svere received from go- 
vernment for building 6 Hoops qf war 
at that place, wltli the utniofl expedition. 



Capt. Calvert of the Maria, in 35 days 
from Gibraltar, brings difpafches from 
conful Gavino. While at the ITock, it was 
reported that Lieut. Steiret of the Enter- 
prize had taken a prize ha'fring Tripolitan 
property on board. It was not officially 
known at Gibraltar, tl.at A!g-' • r had decla- 
red war againll France. A nimou' to that 
effeft prevailed previous to Capt. G’«, fai- 
ling. No accounts were received of ihe lofs 
of an American frigate. I'lie Adams was 
at Gibraltar, the John Adams was on her 
way to Malta. 



BALTIMORE, April 7. 

Rythefliips Two Friends, and Oneida 
Chief, we received London prints to the 
ill nit. 1 he fate ot Col. Despard is de- 
termined; he, together with fix of his un- 
fortunate aflociates, were executed for the 
crime ot High Treason on Monday the 2ifl 
of February. M. Pellktif.h, Editor of 
a recent publication called L'Ambtgv, ou 
Amersantes et Atrocieiix Variates, was tried 
in the Court of King’s Bench on the fame 
day and found guilty of publifliing a libef 
againfl the chief conful of France. Mr 
M I^’TOSh, the celebrated author of Vir.- 
diciac Gu///c/fle, delivered a fperch on be- 
half of the defendant, feldom equalled at 
the bar, which occupied upwards of three 
hours. 1 he court was uncommonly croud- 
ed. The French, Danifli and Bortuguefc 
ambaffadors, with feveral perfons of rank 
were prefent. Tb«^ trial laded the whole 
day. 

It "was reported tint letters had been re- 
ceived in London from Yorkfliire, flating 
the dilcovery of a treafonable confpiracy 
at or near Halifax. A number of pikes 
are faid to haf'e been found concealed un-

LET me waiidec where I will, 

By fliady wood, or winding rill ; 
Where the fweefPft May-born flowers 
Paint the meadow, deck the bowers ; 
Where the linnet’s early long 
Eichoes fweet the woods among ; 

Let me wander where I will, 

Laura haunts my fancy ftill. 

Jf at roly dawn I chufe. 

To indulge tl.f fmiling mufe ; 

If I court fome cool retreat, 

To avoid the noon-tide heat ; 

If, beneath the moon’s pale ray. 
Through unfrequented wilds I firay ; 
Let me wander where I will, 

Laura haunts my fancy fHll* 

When at night the drowfy god 
Waves his fleep-compclling rod, 

And to fancy’s Avakeful eyes 
Bids celcfliitl vifions rife ; 

While with houndlefs joy I rove 
Through the fairy land of love ; 

Let me wander where I will, 

Laura haunts my fancy ftill.

s unimpeached. When we chufe an 
afhftant, a partner, a fcrvant, our firil 
enquiry is concerning his chara6ler. 
When we fix. on the tradefmen who 
are to fopply us with neceffaries, we 
are not determined by the fign of the 
lamb, or a wolf, or a fox ; nor by a 
fliop ft tied up in the moft elegant taile, 
but by the faireft reputation. Look 
into a daily newfpaper, and you will 
fee, from thehigheft to theloweft rank 
how important the charaftcrs of the 
employed appear to the employers. — 
After the advertifement has enume- 
rated the qualities required in the 
perfon wanted, there conflantly fol- 
lows, that none need apply who can- 
not bring an undeniable charadlcr. — 
Offer yourfelf as a candidate for a feat 
in parliament, be promoted to honour 
and emolument, or in any refpedl at- 
tradl the attention of mankind upon 
yourfelf, and, if you are vulnerable in 
your charadler, you will be deeply 
wounded. 'Phis is a geheral tefliino- 
ny in favour of honefty, which no wri- 
tings and no pra6\ices can poflibly re- 
fute. 

Young men, therefore, whofe cha- 
raiSlers are yet unfixed, and who, con- 
fequently, may render them juft fuch 
as they wifli, ought to pay great atten- 
tion to the firft fteps which they take 
on entrance into life. They are ufu- 
ally carelefs and inattentive to this 
objedl. They purfue their own plans 
with ardour and negledl rhe opinions 
which others entertain of them. By 
fome thoughtlefs a6Iion or exprefiion, 
they fuffer a mark to be imprelfed up- 
on them, which fcarcely any fubfe- 
quent merit can entirely erafe. Eve- 
ry man will find fome perfons, who, 
though they are not profeffed enemies 
yet view him with a jealous eye ; and 
who will gladly revive any tale to 
which truth has given the flighteft 
foundation. 

Indeed, all men are fo much incli- 
ned to flatter their own pride by de- 



Dean Swift was invited to preach an an- 
Jtlverfary difcourfe, b/ the worlhipful cor- 
poration of taylors, in Dublin. In his fa- 
cetious wav, he choi’e the following text— 

Romans, ix. 27. And a remnant shall he _ 
saved. Though there was nothing in the ' tra6ling from the reputation of others 

difcourfe which could give offence, the j even if we were able to maintain 
knights of the thimble took the text in ! „ . j rv u /i-ii 

high dudgeon. They complained of the'^^ immaculate condu6l, it would ftill 

affront to the Dean, who affeefted forrow for difficult to preferve an immaculate

again Jie would make honorable amends for u 

the u;dntt„tional infult. They took the contra- 

hint— the Dean was invited to preach the ^ “‘^^ng it ; but whenever folly or vice 
next year ; and when the injured corpora- iupplied fadls, we can feldora do 

tion expedied to be gratified with Swift’s more than aggravate the evil by gi- 
apology. before a large audience, to their, ving it an apparent attention. The 
utter incruncation the Dean cliofe his text 
from Pfalms, cv. ver. 31. And there was 
lice in all their borders. 



MISCELLANT, 



malignity of fome among the various 
difpofitions of which mankind are 
compofed, is highly gratified at the 
view of injured fenfibility. 

In this turbulent and confufed feene 
where our words and aclions are often 
mifunderftood and oftener mifinter- 
preted, it is indeed difficult even for 
innocence and integrity to avoid re- 
proach, abufe, contempt and hatred.

He would have, in all probability, learned

might have earned a comfortable living, 
which all the wealth of his father will not 
now afford him. 

It has been obferved that eftates in this 
part of the country do not often laft in a 
family, more than three generations and 
frequently not fo long. A man by induftry 
and economy gets a large eftatc for his 
foil ; his foil lives in aliiuence, and brings 
up his children in idlenefs and diffipation,

never be fpent; but they generally find

youth was, -to w'hom the above anx- 
ious queftion was propofed. 

But to underftand the moral w'e 
muft firft tell a fliort ftory. 

Among the numerous progeny of 
David, was the princefs Tamar, a ve- 
ry fair, and, as it appears, a very vir- 
tuous young woman. Her charms 
would naturally attradl admirers and 
in that croud oflovers, who prefented 
ihemfclves at the toilet of high birtU 



dren in poverty. And if they have confid- 
cration enough to know that an eftate wiIlL,,,i

If wealthy farmers, inftead of dividing 
their farms into a dozen parts, would learn 
eleven of their fons trades, and give a fniall 
matter to fet them up in their bufiiiefs, 
and leave their farms to their eldflt fons, 
they would be more likely to make rieii 
men of them, than by giving each of them 
a corner of land. It they have more 
land than is neceffary to maintain one fam- 
ily handfomely, they may give it to their 
fons who arc tradefmen ; it will not hurt 
them, if they have a little land with their 
trades; but a little, worn-out farm, with- 
out a trade, will be rather acurfe to them 
than a blelilng.

on the advancement of our intereft in 
a world where liars fliall not be be-

ceive countenance from none but him 
who, in Greek, is called by way of

muft omit no motive, however fubordi- 
nate in its nature, while if appears 
likely to lead fome among mankind to 
a laudable, or even a blamelefs beha- 
vour. A regard to eafe; to intereft, 
and to fuccefs, in the ufual pnrfuits of 
wealth and ambition, may induce many 
to purfue honeft and honorable con- 
du ft, who would not have been influ-

INDUSTRY. 

Induftry leads to plenty ; her paths 
drop marrow and fatnefs. In fome 
meafure, nature has wifely balanced 
our wants with our duties, to force us 
into a compliance with them. Induf- 
try is a duty enjoined on us by the au- 
thor of nature ; and as a caveat againft 
the violation of this law, hunger and 
contempt are continually held up to 
our view. It appears from reafon, as 
well as revelation, that man, while in 
a ftate of perfedl innocence, was never 
intended for (loth and indolence. Ac 
tivity is therefore one of his moft bril- 
liant features. Some have pretended 
that labor and pain were inttidted on 
man by the author of nature, as a pun- 
ifliment for man’s firft difobedience. 
'The evidence of this propofition, will 
neither quadrate with reafon or ob 
fervation. It appears to me, fuch 
people view this world as a great caf- 
tle, themfelves the convidls, and na- 
ture the tafk-mafter. They, like the 
fluggilh animal, view themfelves as 
obliged to go no farther than out of the 
reach of her fcourge, and there wait 
the reiteration of the firft caufe of 
their motion. Induftry gives a fpring 
to ambition and enterprize. Man, 
without this, would become torpid, and 
while he w'ore the complete vifage of 
his creator, would pofTefs the infenfibi- 
lity of a brute. Seventy revolving 
years would roll away without his no- 
tice, any more than that of his dog’s. 
Even the pains and difappointments 
which overtake us in our paflTage thro’ 
life, ferve only to feafon and heighten 
our enjoyments. Nature is never idle. 
The fun rifeth and feteth and hafte*tb 
from whence it came. The moon re- 
Cunies her talk, accompanied by the 
bright conftellations, moving in per- 
feift order, regularity and harmony. 
The fluggard has been very’ aptly fent 
to the reptile ant, to learn leflTons of 
economy and induftry. She, confei- 
ous of a time of want, treafures up the 
rewards of induftry : and fliall man, 
endued with fuperior intelledi, the no- 
bleft work of God, ftand an idle fpe6Ia- 
tor, while myriads of inferior beings 
are continually moving in their little 
fpheres, performing the talk of life? 
Poverty or neceffity is called the mo- 
ther of invention. Few of them, I be- 
lieve, except honeft induftry, have pro- 
ved blefsings to mankind. But induf- 
try is an antidote to almoft all evils. 
In a family, or community, where Ihe 
prefides, the engines of fear or tor- 
ture are only known by information ; 
honefty fucceeds fraud, and virtue pro- 
fanity. 



guage of the context, he was fo vexed 
that he fell lick for his filler. It is 
melancholy to dwell upon the depra- 
vity of human nature ; and none but 
demoniac painters, dellglit in Iketch- 
ing, what demands colours entirely 
black. i hedifgufting progrefs of un- 
naturiil pafsion, it were unnecefTary 
to detail. But fome iifcful lefTons may 
be acquired, by attending to the import 
ol that iiiicri cagaiion, copied in the 
text 1 lie  liiorder of Ammon’s mind 
was fo legible in his face, that jonadab, 
his friend, demanded ofhim“\', hy 
art thou, being the king’s ion, lean 
from day to day.” 

I he refponce afsigned a caufe W'hich 
if true, w as enough to create inquie- 
tude in any breaft ; that he was in 
love with one forbidden him, by natu- 
ral and divine law s, that he was pre- 
pofteroufly inclianted vvhith the perfon 
of his own filler. 

1 empeft’jous pafsion, how lean, how 
careworn, how forlorn, are thy fiib- 
jedls. — Let fortune’s favourites, let a 
prince banquet on the rich gates of a 
palace, and if thou, tvrannic jiowtr, 
impel, he fliall not be filled with good 
things, but fliall go lean and hungry 
away. 

\Vhyart thou, O mifer, lean amid 
ihy (lore ? Thy coffers look full, but 
thin are thine lidts and cheeks. A 
common gazer would fuppofe thou 
hadft enough to “ buy food, and get 
thee into flelh.”- I'hou art not in love 
with thine lifter, nor w ilh any of tho 
iiuman race ; thou art not worn xvitli 
anxiety for the child of misfortune^ 
nor careful with much care of the 
ftranger that is within thy gate*. — 
They are never opened, but to him 
who wainetli to borrow — on ufury. 
But W'hy afle of thee, fallen mortal, 
thefe queftions ? — When thou lockeft 
up thy gold from the claims of others, 
from the claims ofth) feir,’tis avari ce 
that bids thee grow lean, and com- 
niHiids, like luthlels Shylock, a pound 
of flelh from the heart. 

No external ciicumftances, however 
fair and flourifliing, can picvcnt that 
emphatical fpecits of pining, generated 
by vile pafsions. Men may become 
confumptive from an ill habit of the 
body ; but there is a v/afting of the fpi- 
and this diloider, who can bear? 



lit 



Let us, therefore, be on our guard, 
againft the deleterious effedts of paf- 
fion. Why f! lould we ftrive to be lt.ari 
from day to day, when on the common 
bounties of Providence, wc may fat- 
ten. Men reduce themfelves to C.e- 
letons, by immoderate indulgence, and 
force their friends to afle the painful 
queftions, why do ye fo, feeing ye are 
kings over yourfdves ? Criminal de- 
fires, carking cares, reducing health 
and happinels. If w'C muft be anxious 
in any purfuit, let it be in qiicft of vir- 
tue ; If we muft, in the W'ords of a pic- 
turefqiie writer, be felicitous, let us, 
for God’s fake, be felicitous only to 
live well.
