Full text of "The Spirit of the public journals ... Being an impartial selection of the most exquisite essays and jeux d'esprits .."

This is a digital copy of a book that was preserved for generations on library shelves before it was carefully scanned by Google as part of a project 
to make the world's books discoverable online. 

It has survived long enough for the copyright to expire and the book to enter the public domain. A public domain book is one that was never subject 
to copyright or whose legal copyright term has expired. Whether a book is in the public domain may vary country to country. Public domain books 
are our gateways to the past, representing a wealth of history, culture and knowledge that's often difficult to discover. 

Marks, notations and other marginalia present in the original volume will appear in this file - a reminder of this book's long journey from the 
publisher to a library and finally to you. 

Usage guidelines 

Google is proud to partner with libraries to digitize public domain materials and make them widely accessible. Public domain books belong to the 
public and we are merely their custodians. Nevertheless, this work is expensive, so in order to keep providing this resource, we have taken steps to 
prevent abuse by commercial parties, including placing technical restrictions on automated querying. 

We also ask that you: 

+ Make non-commercial use of the files We designed Google Book Search for use by individuals, and we request that you use these files for 
personal, non-commercial purposes. 

+ Refrain from automated querying Do not send automated queries of any sort to Google's system: If you are conducting research on machine 
translation, optical character recognition or other areas where access to a large amount of text is helpful, please contact us. We encourage the 
use of public domain materials for these purposes and may be able to help. 

+ Maintain attribution The Google "watermark" you see on each file is essential for informing people about this project and helping them find 
additional materials through Google Book Search. Please do not remove it. 

+ Keep it legal Whatever your use, remember that you are responsible for ensuring that what you are doing is legal. Do not assume that just 
because we believe a book is in the public domain for users in the United States, that the work is also in the public domain for users in other 
countries. Whether a book is still in copyright varies from country to country, and we can't offer guidance on whether any specific use of 
any specific book is allowed. Please do not assume that a book's appearance in Google Book Search means it can be used in any manner 
anywhere in the world. Copyright infringement liability can be quite severe.

ADVERTISEMENT. 



J\S the commencement of this Pubncation was 
nearly coetaneous to th^ French' Revolution^ and 
as its main object was to record the ingenious essays 
and satires to which that event gave birth; it has 
been thought expedient and proper to terminate the 
present Series with the conclusion of the war. For 
wit and humour the Eighteen Volumes that have 
now been published may boldly challenge comparison 
with any former production of the kind. 

A few complete Sets of this Work, in Eighteen 
Volumes, still remain on sale ; and Subscribers, 
whose Sets; are not perfect, may complete them by an 
early application, — ^The price of each volume is 75, iii 
boards.

11.1. 

Dread was the strife, for mighty was the foe 
Who soaght jivith his- whole streagth thy .^erthrow i 
The nations bow*d before him ; soinejn war 
Subdu*d« some yielding to superior art j 
Sabmiss^ they foUow'd his victorious car. 
Their kings« like satraps, waited round his throne ; 

For Bntain*s rtiin apd.tbeir own, r * ^ j 
. By £>rde or fraud, in monstrous league Goittbii^iL - 
Alone in that disastrous hour 
Britain stood firm, and brav*d his power ) 
Alone she fought the battles ot mankind* 

* ir. 
O virtue, which above all former fame 

Exalts her venerable name i 
O joy of joys for every British breast ! 'I 
That, with that mighty peril ftill in view> 
The Queen of Ocean to herself was true V 
That no weajt heart, no abjec^ mind possess'd 
Her counsels to abaae her lofty crest,-*- 
Then Jiad she smk in everlasimg shanUe,-^ * 
But, ready stills succaotir ttie oppressM, " 
Her red oros&fioat»d.OD the waves tin^ii*d, . « 
Otfering redemptioaio the groaning world. 

V. . , 

First from bis trance tb* heroic Spaniard woke; 

His chains he broke, * 

And, casting off his neck the treacherous yoke, 
He call'd on England, on his generous fo&: . 

For well He knew that wheresoe*er 
Wise policy prevail'd, or brave despair. 
Thither would Britain's succours flow. 
Her arm be present there. 
Then too regenerate Portugal displayed 
Her ancient virhie, dormant all too long : 
Rising agaiust intolerable wrong. 
On England, on her old a!ly, for aid 
The fakhful nation calVd in her distress :. 
And well that old ally the call obey*d. 
Well was her faithful friendship th^n repaid.

Waiting with foresight calm the £tting hour.

Defied the tyrant's undivided power — 

Swore not the boastful Frencbtuan, in hb might,

Ye saw the baffled rufl^au take bis flight I 

Onoro'fl springs, ye saw bis overthrow ! 

mUent of lo)s, profuse of life. 
Meantime had Spain ettdor'd the strife ; 

And .ihoUgh she saw her cities yield. 
Her aroiie^ sc9tter'd in the fittld^ 
Her McQQgeat bulwarks .fall ,^ 
' The danger. un4ism9^y*d stie viewed. 
Knowing that naught could e*er appal 

The Spaniard's fortitude. 
What though the tyrant, drunk with power. 
Might vaunt himself, in impious hour. 
Lord and disposer of this earthly bail^ 
Her cause is just, and Heaven is over all. 

VIII. 

Therefore no thought of fear debas'd 
Her judgment, nor her acts djsgrac'd ; 
To every ill, but not to shame retagiVd. 
All si^fierings, all calamrties, she bore. 
Shet bade the people call to mind 
Th^ir heroes of the days of yore, • 

Pelayo and the Campeador, 
With all who, once in battle strong. 
Live still in story and iu ^ng. '

Thus, in the £uuea8 days of jore,

They gloHed in his overthrow. 
But toach'd uos. with Mproach his gallant name ; 
For, fairly aed with hostile aim profest^ 
The Moor had raar*d his haughty crest. 
An open, honourable foe : 
But as a firiend the treacherous Frenchman came, 
And* Spain receiv*d hitli as a g\iest.

No horror^ could abate their constant mind |

^^ Now I '11 hastily, tell yoa wM happ«D'd last oigbt. 
We reach*d Hatfield House as the clock stTu<;k eleren^ 
(The Marquis's dinner liad waited from seven j) 
The bells were all ringing, the Hertfordshire corps 
Were«drawn up to salute us on eot'Xfrng the door) 
But, sad to relate, the qurs'd fog, which has daoip'd* 
So many men's joys, so many plans cramp'd. 
Cast a damp on their prime, t)aiilk*d their loyal desire ; 
And, like Salisbnry's jokesj every (trelock miss'd fire ; 
The Captain would fain have me wait at the door 
While they loaded -and prim'd, and presented once nXbre $ 
But I begg'd to decline, as the air was too raw, 
And a warii» Rumford stove is the best feu ^iejaie. 
To describe our repast would be useless to you ; 

I 've said all, when I say it was quite to my ^oa/-— 

Exactly according to order— you know 

I despatcb'd my forerunner a long time ago : 

It traveird, as usual, to Hatfield, by post j 

And from thence, after read, to my next noble host ; . 

For, in order to give people time to prepare, 

I am always a month after my bill <k fare. 
We had Westmoreland, Lonsdale, Cranbourn,and Sandy s> 

And, in spite of the fog, the Sebrights and firands. 

Some Hertfordshire belles, and two or three others^- 

Twenty in all, with niyself and my brothers. 

In the ev'ning we danc'd ; I waltzed with Georgina-* 

Pray don't stab yourself— -O, if you had seen her [ 

• A lady wa» there whom yon met once 4n France, 
-Of slight reputation, except for a dance. 

When we aak'd her to ghre a paf seul, sire fought shy— 
" She never could do it, she did not know why." 
But Lowrher still press'd her a long time in vain. 
Till at last very rudely (you know his odd strain). 
He declared it was corscxlly strange, 'pon his soul.

To what was Lady B , a few nights since, in- 

debted^ for several tender embraces from her Nobje. 
Lprd, a luxury which she had not enjoyed for many 
years before ?**To f heybg ; which prevented his Lord- 
ship from seeing that he was embracing the mistress 
instead of her maid* 

How has it happened, that Mr. Distich, the poet 
(who, during a twelvemonth, could not venture foi^'th, 
except on Sunday) j recently enjoyed the sweets of 
liberty for an entire week? — ^Theyb^f procured* him 
this induTgence-^tinder it^ friendly snaae he was en-

' What was Miss Hoyden's best friend, when she 
eloped from a fashionable boarding-school with ^ 
dancing-tnaster, a fortnighl ago?— Thcybg unques? 
tionabiy, which rendered all search after (be fugitives 
vain. 

What has occasioned such a suddai change in the 
temper of the Hon. Mr. Squander^ who^ not a monlh 
ago, appeared in the deepest melancholy, but is now 
as gay a^ the most thoughlless of fashion^s fools ?— 
Tht Jog, which has just carried off his penurious fa-

By what miracle did the Earl and Countess of T-^> 
who never before met without i^uarrelling, sit in the 
same room for an entire hour, without worrying each 
other?— *Tbe fog intervened, arid prevented the 
Countess fcom seeing her spouse. 

Finally, the last Paris papers roundly assert that tbe 
Jogs are favourable to the operations tif the allies, 

The§e are benefits, plain and palpable, which have 
been produced within our owti knowledge ; but, if we

The enemy, notwithstanding (he acv'erity.of the atv: 
tack, 'was so well supported by the Roycd Savierfign^ j 
that she repulsed every eifort ms^de*by the fleet jinder . 
vciY^mmand, without sustaining tlie smallest damage

siderably injured by the explosion of the torpedos and . 
othfer contrivances. I therefore hauled o^*, and or-» 
dered the whole fiquadrqn to lie-to, for the purpose of: 

refitting for a fresh attack. 

. The Royal Sovereign^ af(^r. having rendered the 

ccitftitfy the greatest services, was, from a damage re* 

cejved in its Aead works, obKged to be carried into 

dock, whete this gallant old ship w^s at last to be laid 

np in Ordinary. Availing.myself of this advantage, \ 

igait^ ordered the fleet to advance in the same order, a$ 

before; directing that no quarter should be giyenJ 

Observing, however, that thei enemy had sent forward 

i ctitter to take soundings, with a Brooniy thie signal of 

^efiarice, at the mast-head, 1 fell the necessity of ber 

ing wary, in employing the secret engines 5 relying on

. terms >— , 

I. Tber^ shalf tie a perpetual' aLHiance * between 
France and the Allied' Power*, 51^ the foVmeV will re- 
turn to habits of peaceful iiidu^t^, and 'siifler her 
neighbours to be at restf 

a.. France, .instead of forming an cnipire for a^Cor- 
aicaot shall become the realm of a Frenchman, a 
Bourbon* ./ * ! / ' 

,. 3. hx, consequence of tlie Frankfort ^defcfaflitfon, 
that a ^at nation should not lose its rank, &c. the 
a^ress^o;D8 of France upon other countries shallbe 
forgotten — her perfidious invasion of Spadn— Th^ nn- 
ptovohed annexation of HoBand. The AHied Powers, 
in possession of her' very capital, wiD feven leave It un- 
hurt, and give her more territories than she possessed 
before her systerp of plunder b^gan.' 

4. The Bclgic proviirces will rtvM to their lawfiil 

ovvners^ the Houses of Orange aod Austria y with t 

I sreatcT sliare to tlie former^ in consideration of the 

heavier sufferings of that family^ and tb^ se\'erer 

crones inflicted oh the country. 

5,, In exchange for Belgium, and in couforrtiity » 
the declari^tion of Frankfort, the French frontier to- 
wards FJanders is rt)uudcd' ancj "rectified," every 
vvhere to the advantage of Frahcfe j and France ac- 
quires a territory towards Savoy, w'hich the victorious 
aims of Louis XIV. were not able to secure to her. 

6. The money spent in improving ihc port of Ant- 
werp will, of course, turn to the advantage of those 
to wtiom the pwt of Antwerp of rirfit belongs: he 
wboTemoyes bis neighbour's landmark^ loses, together

12. Referred to the last article. 

t}. As Maria Lonisaj' though dqgraded by her 
union with Buonaparte^ is still the daug^hter of ^. mo- 
narchy the duchies of Parma, Placentia/ atid Gtia* 
stalla, are assigned as a liberal provision for herseff 
>and.her child, which is innocent of the Crimea of jts 
father. 

14. There being no'longcr a-kingdnm of Italy at- 
tached to France, there can no longer be a Vice-king; 
but he hw luen otherwise honourably provided for by 
fcis lawful sovereign, his unljawrul one having abdi- 
cated and left him fighting. And Ferdinand TV, hiv* 
ing no great merit with the Allies, is left in possession 
•of Sicily, and nlay recover Naples if he can. 

15. England gives France the free navigation of the 
ocean; in a word, she resKires t5 France half the creat- 
ed world : England gives France cdpfiie», unrestrained 
access to. them, the enjoyment of their -productions, 
sugar instead of extract of beet-root. 

16. The Allied troops shall leave Franee as »oon a* 
|)ossib!e, and it is hoped they will find a more commo- 
dious route than that by which the French quitted 
Moscow. 

17. All former treaties, by 9A\\vh Prance had en- 
dcavoured to guarantee to b^self her unlawful acqui- 
sitions, are mill and voidr , As to the blood of five 
millions of Frenchmen, shed in unprovoked aggres- 
sion upon all nations, far and near, from Syria aiKl 
Egypt to the shores of the BkWc and the heart of 
Muscovy, that blood must be required atf the bands of 
him who shed it. 

18- A general amnesty is praclairaed^* ami thanks, 
to Almighty God are feturned for the blessings of 
peace; which, it is trusted that France is at last sin- 
iccrely disposed to suffer harassed Europe to enjoy."

what indeed be must spon have discovered, that I bad 
no. talent for speakings He smiled, aiMl told me that 
I need give myself no trouble on that score i and at 
the same time encouraged ndc to persevere in my atr 
tempts, for that a certain degree of fluency was soon 
acquirable- The fact was, that he was so strongly and 
^o justly confident in his own powers of- speech, that 
he almost disdained the oratorical assistance of his. col- 
leagues: but be was anxious to have abourt him young 
men of industry, who would, do the drudgery of bu- 
siness, and who were sufficiently attached to him to be 
strenuous in the discharge of their duty* He. gave 
them all the compensation in his power-r-pensions and 
'sinecures ; and, what was better even:tban those, bis 
o.vn glowing and magnificent panegyric. But, as he 
paid muniticeutly, he expected to be served without 
grudge. He soon put mc to a very severe test : having 
first made me Under-sec re tary, and given me large pro- 
mises for the future. About two months afterwards a 
member of the Opposition gave notice of a motion on 
the su}>ject of parliamentary reform. The Minister 
hinted to me that this would be a good opportunity of 
making my debut. My heart was quite warni with his

anytiew prmect. * About rhis time an opportunity oc?- 
cupred which I seized with the utnidst readrness. The 
Klihister wished to gain over to his party a large body 
of men, whose opposition was as formidable as it was 
strenuouTj. For this service he fixed upon me, be- 
cause, he said, he placed much reliance on my con* 
ciKating manners, and my influence in the district 
where-those persons resi'ded. I proceeded upon my 
expedition, armed wiih full powers to threaten, to 
promise, to give. Threats I ^oon Found had little 
avail: 'but, heavens! how I promised, and how I 
gave 1 In short, I must not reveal*, even to yon, all my 
means for .effecting my purpose. After immense la- 
boorr J succeed^, but brought away the execrations 
even of those whom I had persuaded and drawn over 
to our party. The Minister was ready to hug me fot 
joy: he overwhelmed me with panegyric, and inime-- 
diately made' nie one of the Principal Secretaries of 
State. I was noi^', however, more unpopular thari

bilt Ihat the tel-dict of juries is onfly to be regarded 
when the guihy are acquittied and the innocent con-

That the "fact of' k' man's Having 'been convicted of 
a. low and infamous trime^ sentenced \h s^n ignomi- 
nious puhishmeftt, and in consequence Jficked ont of 
the House 6f Commons, cbrrstitute?s a new daioi on? 
the public respect j^nd gratitude; and that a fraudulent 
attempt td pick the pockets of other people, is a strong 
.qualification to be chosen one of the guardians of iht 
public purse. 

That the time in which a glorious peace termi- 
nates a war, during which the existence of all Europe 
was in danger of destruction, is not a proper period 
for rejoicing f that festivities ^fe then unseasonable, 
&nd tnat a phari^aical gloom and lengthened extensiob 
of face should be every where visible. ^ 

That when unhappy differences exist in a family, 
the way to heal those: dissensions, is to foment the 
variance by every possible means which envy, offi- 
riovjsness, and hatred can devise; to arm the daugh- 
ter kgainirt the falher, and to select' fer (he principal 
Cioiinsdlor of the mother, a tnan vyhohas defended

This, however, is that pail pf my plan which re- 
quires the least explanaUon. The puszlin^c^uestion is» 
now bur new charity shall afford relief in the ca^e of 
impritonmeut, piHory, whipping, banishment, or bang- 
itigf; atid I confess, Ihat this was so- Ions a pu«aling, 
question with me, that I more than once detertnined to 
biirn my papers, and abandon m)^ scheme as b!ra61ess, 
or late, however, I caught a glimpse of relief from 
the speeches of soine of the Palace Yard Orators, who 
ceirtainTy,'ibr powers of invention and bfoad assertion, 
ea^eed all others. I heard so many pf these gentle- 
liien Speakii^ in the highest terms of th^ honpur of 
a^Ading in the pillory, and the honour of standing m 
the shoes of the innocerU-guiky objects of their admi* 
ration, that I saw, or thought I saw, at oncc» an'easy 
r<medy tot all the personal inconveniencies to which 
the innocent are liable, nanVely in a system of suhstU 
l«/«5;' and when I consider the zeal,. friendship, and 
atU'chment of (he said orators and their friends, I 
hav^ no manner of doubt that a sufficient number of 
subftitntes may b^ found for every case of personal 
pithishment. I prbpose, therefore, that part of tbe 
fiind^ of mis society shall be appropriated to reward 
such ^ptiblic- spirited characters, where any reward tsay 
be ntcessltry ; which, however, I conceive, jwould be

would hesitate to go to the d — \ in so glorious a dause, " 
if tliey hid an opportunity, without fee or feward. We' 
are'^^tt) consider, lilcewise, that, as to Iniprisbnmenf and ^ 
wHipping, two very com ifnoa ways in which the isno- ' 
GETti may be punished, if the present corrupt system "^ 
goe^ on, many of thfe persons I have in my eye as 
sttbstUutes, may already have been so familiar with [ 
them»^as to have none of those fine feelings of honour 
wtiicH, atthougli they seldom step in to prevent crimes^ . 
art always sure to be very troublesome ill the Case of * 
punishtnent, '' '. . . ! 

As to the' last-mentioned punishmentj . )tflw^z«^, | 
w^ich always must be the /oi/, some difficulty may 
occuf, and I should, perhaps, have omitted this as 
incurable by our new society; but when I consider , 
hov^ many of the bdi^vers in hmocent-giiilt h3.\e\ 
adopted those principles which tend to malce a mai\ 
somewhat weary oflife; vvhen I consider how many 
have hanged themselves without deriving any credit 
frorri *ff," and hovir many have been bange<f by others I 
without the'satisfaciion of standing in an tnnoceni man*s ' 
shoes, I do not despair*, of seeidg this object likewise 
accomplished, as soon as the instttufioii I propose 
shalf be established, and the laws of it become, as it

CO, Mr. Editdr, 'I perceive, by the siatcmcntei tff 
"^ the public printe^ that the coi^ductor of tbe Jmr^ 
nal d$ roT%$ endeavours to turn into ridicule the g^n-r 
tiemeit of London, for paying so much attention to 
Joanna Southcott, whoin, in derision, he terms an 
old woman, of sixty-sik. I am surprised that » 
Frenchmany above all other persons, should be ajto*' 
nisbed at such a proof of our increasing politeness, 
since the French ieaux are noted, throughout Europe, 
ferextendi^ng their gallantry to women of every age^ 
from seventeen to seventy. 
: I have beheld, with great pleasure, the attention 
with which, within a few years, young gentlemen of 
fashion in England have begun to treat the niost ve^ 
nerable dowagers, I recollect the time. Sir, when the 
appearance of an old woman, however it might com* 
. mand reverence or respect, was sure to put all amorous 
ideas to flight. Thank Heaven, this is no longer ^tlie 
ease. The «' finest gentieoaan in Europe'* b^.sjhown 
a praiseworthy affection far iha aaci^nt pact ftf the 
female sex, who certainly stand more ijn need <X 
protection than those who have youth, health, and 
strength, to support ibem j and I am extremely hafpjjy 
to observe that the fashion is rapidly gaining ground.. 
I can. readily overlook, however, any. foible, so long as-

Th#t part of it, however^ was carried into eflbuu 
through ignorance} by the lEnglish themselves; aM 
sixittly after their entry into Washington, we had tba 
satisfafction to see the Capitol (including the House of 
Assembly and that of Representatives), the Arsenal, 
the Treasury, the President's Palace, the Rope-\valk» 
and the great Bridge over the Potowmac, all biasing 
at once. Every thing that could have caused anxiety 
thus removed, one general glow of patriotism pervaded 
the whole metropolis, and only waited the expected 
signal to burst forth and consume the daring reptiles^ 
who, after such a defeat, had the arrogance to give 
thenist^lvtes The airs of conquerors. 

On the inorning of the 25th, a lar^ party of the 
enemy surrounded this office, and a Lieutenani-coh>. 
nel, sent by 'Gen. Ross, demanded to see the Con« 
ckictor of The 'National Intelligencer, against whom 
the soFdters in waiting, with horrid execrations, 
vowed vengeance for his exertions in the cause of his 
country* The Editor serenely snatched up a pistol^ 
and threatened to put to dt^th the first ruffian who «u 
tempted to arrest bis progress. The Colonel slunk 
away at this, and the Editor quitted the Office pistol 
in handii and, marching to the tune of — 

<' Hail* Columbia ! happy laod !*' 

atlvanced towards the soldiei^, half of whom took to 
flight, ami the rest opened theii' ranks to give him a 
free passage. He had just passed them ; wheni hap- 
pening to scratch his head, hi^ pistol utiforluaately 
went off, and he foutid himself defenceless. The BrU

ADVICE FOR CONDUCT IN THEATRES. 

[From the'samQ, Oct, 19.] v 
-MR. EDITOR, 

T HAVE often regretted,i that a regular code of lawa 
-■' has not been dfaw^ up for the government of those 
dashing young g^qtljem^n who are in the habit of 
visiting the theatres. In the. absence of, any re* 
filiations of, this descriptigi?^ I have thrown togetber 
a few^ hints, which may be of great ^e to them ia 
places of pubJic apiusement* I.ba^ye.act^<^a th^m, 
myself, for several, ye^rs, and never, kne^w. them fivil of 
attracting the attention .of an andiepccj which is* «. 
matter of primary importance to those wbp^ instead 
of noticing the ^performance, are anxious to b^, noticed 
ihemselves. . » . . 

I am^ &|6. N< 

If yoir have taken places, be sure^ not »to enter the 
box until after tbe commencement of the piece* Se* 
lect, if ppssiM^jt the mp.n?e|it w.h^n fin aiSestiog^mci-* 
dent has excitgd general attention, tp inaki^yoiir ftp«-

SIDile^Qt CQBtMpl. 

If the night be eilremely dirty» od no accoontiieg. 
IfSGl'Avtptiig your 6khy booig on the lopn.Qf the seats; 
by thug fMkhg ymr mark, you are ahnost certain of 
iiecuring two or three row« for yourself; and Qotbicg 
gives a man an air of greatclr consequence .4 ban» in a 
i;rowiied house^ to keep possession of th^ greater part 
of a box. 

^ If the evening be very rainy, forget not to bring 
VQur dripping great coat and umbrella into the box*. 
V ou will thus save sixpencCi and, by annoying aa en« 
tire company^ compel tbeni4p talk about you* 

Should you observe iJu'ee very corpulent persons 
filling a seat, where there is accommodation b>r Jour 
of moderate size^ insist on your right to compleie 
the regular number. If you cannot squeeze; yourself 
among them, you will, at all events, be sure of 
creating noise and confusion, and. of drawing the at- 
tentioa or the audience from the performers la your* 

Self. . . ' ; . 

If you have a friend In the box with you, ^nd ob^ 
serve any foolish fellow very attentive to tbe.busioess 
of the scene, immediately conimence'a conversation

nnAKE all the ladies and gentleman you can geti 
^ place them in a room with a slow fire; stir them.* 
well ; have ready a piano forte, a harp, i handful* 
of books or prints, put them in from tinic to tini^: 
when the mixture begins to- settle, sweeten with po« 
litesse^ or wit' (if you have it) ; if not, flattery will do 
as well, and is vtry cheap. When all have stewed 
togethep for two or three hours, put in one or two 
turkeys, some tongues, sliced beef* or ham, tarts, 
cakes, and sweetmeats, and some bottles of wine ; the 
more you put the belter, and the more substantiat 
your rout will bo. — ^N. B^ Fill your room quite fulV 
and let the scum, run off of itself.. '

T SHALL make three ifs0umi>tM>ns,*v^hi«h IxlMvft lid 
^ dofubtwiH be readHy acceded loylyefot^ I (^^ 
state the detail of the^kn^oreant atrm^emieiit fiiMok 
will tranqaillize all Europe. . /i . 

In the first place, the right of tlie strongent is iM 
only right which can possibly be acknowledged ii^ 
politics* 

In the second place, individitals hglf e no rights, nc^ 
feelings, no happiness, separatdy* considered ; but alrcf 
merely component parts of a g^eat whole. 

In the third place, it is lawful to destroy or annihi*> 
late all those persons or states who shall oppose ttienk-*^ 
selves to the wishes of the majority of the'Strongest. ' 

On these three incontrovertible maxims I shall build* 
my reasoning, or rather tny reeommendation. 

It is obvious, that Europe has been for centur'/es dis- 
turbed by the desires of different grtiiat 8bv^d|nB, 
who have now and then takei^ 4, fancy to some little 
neighbouring territory, which would make the most 
convenient accession in the world to their own domi-> 
nions. The little neighbouring state, instead of quietly 
submitting itself to the wishes of the superior king- 
doni, has generally had the impertinence to resist by 
force of arms ; and then, so strong in mankiii^ id the • 
love of fighting ahd cutting throats, that in k short 
time the whole continent has been engaged iti war* 
about this same paltry principality, -which ought in 
the first instance .to have been blown up by gunpowder. 

Now, I wish to put a stop to all this wretched ab- 
surdity : there should be no small states in Europe ; 
they should all be absorbed in the greater. For in- 
stance, let there be four great states,' England, Frante, 
Russia, and Austria, all of equal strength, and let all 
other states be merged in these. If, after an impartial • 
' ' R a division.

Antimat there •badt be a fttiperloiitjr remmmag of^etie

all future disseosioDt will be to root then ont^ whb ail

. made to^his »cbe«iet ProMia afid Tutkey, aodSwe- 
deo and Uolla:nd» may gromble a littk^ to be dcpmed 
sit QMe 'of all their consequesce $ :but tbe bayonet aBd 
asrtillery of tbe majority will soon silence the^ senae- 
leas clamours^ 

It may seem, at first, rather ungrateful to exclude 
Frussia^ which here so disitngoisbcS a part in tbe late 
ivar I but what has gratitude to do with p^itical con- 
vcnienee ? and besides, how dare Fru8«a oomplain, 
who would, if allowed, at once pounce upon Saxony? 
Tbe Turks, it is evident, bsnre no claim to tbe mercifal 
cci^ideratioQ- of a Christian eongreta: indieed, I never 
eonid understand what business they had in Europe. 
It is high time, either that they should all be converted 
to Ch»>6tianvty, or else be transported to Asia .or 
^Aiica, or disposed of in some otlier.i^'ay by means 'of 
Christian fire and ball^ Sweden will hardly have the 
ftce to olgect to a little robbery just after her theft of 
Idorway 5— and as to Holland, I really could never tjee 
why a set of fcllo«»s who wear trunk- breeches and 
sell butter and cheese, should be Allowed to have a 
state of their own, just as if they viere a weiUdressed 
and genteel people, 

: There are, F am aware, several other states and even 
kingdoms, but they are too insignificant for particular 
mention : though t must just hint, that I would con- 
vert Spain into a great Jesuits'^ college, of 'which the 
Pope should be president, and Lucten Buonaparte the 
lecturer on the Belief Lf^ttres. That coufounded naiiie 
puts me in mind.of the .man at £Iba, against w.hom I 
seetio security, unless he is either hanged or made a 
Bow Street runner, I incline toahelatles part of the 
abemattve, bMause I would not destroy a sinner while

citizens of Europe, There would not be much occa- 
sion for large standing arnites, and the kings would 
just keep up so many soldiers as might serve to amuse 
the women and children. . > 

Finally, it would be as well to have only one religtoa 
in Europe; and as the. Protestant profewors are. the 
least numerous, they ought . to give up their tenets to 
the majority. In the mean time, lawyers, and physic 
.cians, and fisathematicians, and men of lettera, may in 
private hold what opinion they please, but muat nol 
publish them under pain of being deported to Africa.
