They saw their wishes scorned—their hopes destroyed,
Each pledge * neglected, and each promise void.
They saw a perjured ****** desert their cause,
Unmoved by nature's, or by honour's laws:
They saw actions of a r-y-1 life!
His friends † deserted- and abused his wife I-
So fell the early promise of his reign,
So died his fame, defiled by many a stain.
And he, in former days to F-x allied,
Now sinks to Y-th for his friend and guide;
And Grany-le's friendship, ere he changed his life,
Descends to H-d—t, or perhaps to F-fe.
Misguided man who, but must inly mourn,
His character so changed, defaced, and torn.

* When the Duke of B-df-d went to Ireland, as Lord Lieutenant, a verbal, if not a written pledge was given him by the ******, of his, the ******'s, intention of affording relief to the Catholics of that country, whenever he should have an opportunity of so doing f Vide his transactions with the opp-s.

Vide the Book

No more the people's idol, and their choice;
No more the theme of every public voice;

No more his actions cause the loud acclaim

i

Of public praise to venerate his name :
Ceased all respect and love--and in their place
Disgust * and hate appear in every face;
And

angry murmurs teach the royal ear,
E'en in a Palacet walls to taste of fear;
And to his trembling breast this maxim shew

Virtue alone is happiness below."

* As was plainly shewn a short time ago, by the treatment this great personage received, or was very near receiving, on his way from C-n to Bm House.

† The disapprobation expressed by the large body of people who accompanied the address of the City of London to the P-sS of W on passing C- -n H. -se, excited so much terror in the mind of its r - possessor, that a detachment of cavalry was on that day placed in the front court of the Palace.

THE END.
