Viceroys, like Providence, with diftant care, Bishops who most advane'd good James's cause
While those who rither made the Tower their choice,

And thou, great Weymouth, to reward thy charge
Shalt fail to Lambeth in his Grace's barge.
See by base rebels James the Just betray'd,
See his three realms by vile usurpers (way'd
And erring nations own their injur'd lord.
Inspiring raptures worthy such a reign!
Not Thracian Saint John should with me contend, Like brambles Aourishing in barren ground.
my sweet lays harmonious Hammond's mend: Somers maliciously employs his care
Not though young D'Avenant, St. John should protect, To make the lords the legiNaturs share.
Or the shrew'd Doctor, Hammond's lines correct. Burnet declares how French dragooning rose,
Nay, should Tredenham in St. Mawes compare his And bishops persecuting bills oppose:

Prepare, aufpicious youth, thy friends to meet; And fresh removes have made the game fecure;
Sir George * already has prepard the fleet. When Somerset and Devonshire give place

IMITATED, 170g. And Marlborough, for ancient crimes, receive his just reward.
THE man that's refolute and juft,
Nor hopes nor fears can blind;
No passions his designs control,
Can laake his teady mind.
Not parties for revenge engag'd,
Nor threatnings of a court enrag'd, The faithful club afsembles at the Vine,
Nor forms where fleets despair ; And French intrigues are broach'd o'es English wine. Not thunder pointed at his head; Freely the fenate the design proclaimi,
The shatter'd world may strike him dead, Affronting William, and applauding James.
Not touch his foul with fear.
From this the Grecian glory rore,
By this the Romans aw'd their foes :
These were the paths their heroes trod,
These acts made Hercules a god; Conárm to friends what they refus'd the Queen. And great Nafsau a king.
IX. Firm on the rolling deck he food,
" She hall domestic foes unite, Unmov'd, beheld the breaking food,
“ Monarchs beneath her fiags shall figét, With blackening forms combin'd.
" Whole armies drag her chain: « Virtue, he cry'd, will force its way;
“ She shall loft Italy restore, " The wind may for a while delay,
“ Shall make th' imperial eagle Toa, “ Not alter our design.
“ And give a king to Spain. V.
X. « The men whom felfish hopes inflame,
“ But know, these pomises are given, “ Or vanity allures to fame,
“ These great rewards impartial heaven “ May be to fears betray'd :
“ Does on these realms decree ; “ But here a church for succour flies,
“ That, Atrialy punishing meas fauks, “ Insulted law expiring lies,
“ You let their consciences and thougbts “ And loudly calls for aid.
-“ Rest absolutely free. VI.
XI. " Yes, Britons, yes, with ardent zeal,
“ Let no false politics confine, “ I corse, the wounded heart to heal,
“ In narrow bounds, your vaft defiga “ The wounding hand to bind :
“ To make mankind unite; “ See tools of arbitrary sway,
“ Nor think it a sufficient caufe “ And priets, like locuits, scout away
“ To punish man by penal laws, “ Before the western wind.
“ For not believing right. VII.
XII « Law shall again her force resume ;
~ Rome, whose blind zeal destroys mankind; « Religion, clear'd from clouds of Rome,
“ Rome's sons shall your compaffion find, “ With brighter rays advance.
“ Who ne'er compaflion knew. " The British fleet shall rule the deep,
“ By nobler actions theirs condemn : “ The British youth, as roys'd from sleep,
“ For what has been reproach'd in them, « Strike terror into France.
“ Can ne'er be prais'd in you. ”.. VIII.
XIII. " Nor shall these promises of fate
These subjects suit not with the lyre; • Be limited to my short date:
Muse! to what height doft thou aspire, " When I from cares withdraw,
Pretending to rehearse «« Still shall the British sceptre fand,
The thoughts of gods, and god-like king?? * Still Aourish in a female hand,
Ceasc, cease to lefsen lofty things “ And to mankind give law.
By mean ignoble veste."
