With jokes and cannon, in terrorem,
You need not care a single damn.
So Indians, when a captive's taken,
First stick him full of splinter'd pine.
In fine, your worships will contrive
Whom nature meant to dig in ditches.
adversity, that others may be deterred by their exemplary fate, from infringing on our privileges, dignities, and immunities.
There can be nothing unmanly or improper in triumphing over a fallen enemy. For thus did Achilles insult Hector, Patroclus Sarpedon, and se will Dr. Caustic serve Perkins, when he has him fairly under foot.
But all who would not make most topping
Fellows to work in docks at Wapping,
Some way or other, Sirs, I’d have ye
But if with all this blood and thunder,
Their jordans like Achilles' shield;
No more with these our weapons dabble,
Come on, brave fellows, quick surround 'em ; With canes and cudgels punch and pound 'em; Brick-bats and broom-sticks, all together,
Like coblers hammering sides of leather.
Brave Belcher, Lee, Mendoza, Bourke,
Let loose your fists in this great work!
Here's fine amusement for your paws,
Let not one Perkinite be found
And I’ll be there and blow war's trumpet; Or with Death's kettle-drum I'll thump it, Till all’s “ confusion, worse confounded,’ Than e'er in Milton's hell abounded.
Thus, when the Spartans were in trouble, Tyrtaeus help'd them through their hobble, By singing songs, to raise their courage,
All piping hot, as pepper-porridge.
These are the methods of dead doing,”
We'll rise, like Phoenix, on its ashes.
Now, Sirs, consent to my Petition,
Will ever pray—
(a) page 20–The interview with the Board of Longitude, adverted to in this Note, there is reason to believe is substantially true. Mr. S-, the unsuccessful applicant, could not, after the insult he received, by that pitiful offer of remuneration, be prevailed upon to reconstruct his instrument. Our poor countryman CHUR chMAN also, whose laborious life has been spent in the pursuit of discoveries relative to the Longitude, and whose investigations have been amply successful to merit the liberal protection of an institution, established with the professed views of the present one, can attest how far a poor but meritorious artist may confide in the liberality of either the Board of Longitude, or the gentlemen of the Trinity House. The Salary of the Clerkship of the Pells, alluded to in the latter part of the Note, which Mr. ADDINGto N, the Premier, gave to his own son, a child eleven years old, is about seven thousand pounds sterling per annum. The duties of this office are necessarily transacted by a nurse, who probably is rewarded by our young master with as liberal wages as many of the Curates of England receive. They for forty pounds per annum, discharge the duty of the Rector, whose tithes amount to three or four thousand, which he often most graciously condescends to bestow in running the race of not a Christian, but, a fox or a stag, and another species of races at New-Market. The Clerkship of the Pells, until Mr. Addington discovered otherwise, was always considered as justly belonging to some meritorious but worn-out and unrequited servant of the country. - - (b) page 25–In England the point of this would have been sufficiently evident by the mere emphasis on “Scotland,” which the italicising of the word imports; but as in America it is not generally known that for twelve pounds two shillings and sixpence, sterling, any creature can obtain in the Universities of Aberdeen and St. Andrews a diploma, which will dignify the possessor with a Doctor's Degree in Divinity, Law, or Physic, there would have been a wonder how that wiseacre, Dr. ANperson, came by his.
