Her prowess Albion's empire fhakes,
Display great Nature's hand;
To rule the wondrous land.
Bold emulation stands confeft;
The heroick passion runs ;
When Nature ranks her funs.
Lo, Britain's ancient genius flies
And war's dire horrors cease ;
To liberty and peace."
A NEW SCHEME TO RAISE A NEW CORPS, AND SUPPLY THE WANT OF A SCOTCH MILITIA; ADDRESSED TO LORD BARRINGTON, SECRETARY AT WAR.
BY THE SAME.
Arma, virumque cano.
OF arms and wond'rous tribes I fing;
Form'd on a liberal plan ;
You can't recruit a mall,
Adopt a philofophick hint,
Nur think my project odd;
With learned Lord MONBODD'.'
Since you, my Lord, disdain to look
By which your genius steers !
* " Though the bounty has been raised, and the standard “"lowered, yet no recruits can be got," Lord Barrington's Speech in the House of Commons.
Perhaps you'll hear with some surprize
Like commoners and peers ! The Ouran Outangs wife and great, (The Bedford party of a state,)
Who factions form or break”;
-Only they cannot speak..
Then check depopulation ; *" A whole nation, if I may call them fo, have been found « without the use of speech. This is the case of the Ouran Oute
angs that are found in the kingdom of Angola in Africa, and “ in several parts of Asia. They are exa&tly of the human form, “ walking erect, not upon all four; they use sticks for weapons ; " they live in society; they carry off negro girls, whom they « make llaves of, and use both for work and pleasure." |

To barren Scotia waft them o'er,
A rebel-to starvation ! #
They spring o'er stakes and ditches ; The Treas'ry's drain'd by Frazier's corps, For bonnets blue, and kelts, they roar,
-You only save their breeches ! The French an Ouran nicely stuff *, I've seen one standing in his buff,
Who had been gay and frisky :
But died by drinking whiskey.
At Rebels turn them loose;
Origin and Progress at
[84 Hips, haws, and acorns they will eat, Or cram their paunches with raw meats
Like Abyffinian Bruce !
With erivious glance Germain shall see
Firing as quick as Pruffians :-
And scorn the aid of Ruffians. *
Mac-Homer too, in profe or fong,
To deep researches led,
Who from the Highlands fled,
At such a pedigree you fneer ;
And North no longer droops :
Excellent qualities for the American service, as provisions are rather scarce.
