But the brave sons of Albion's warlike race,
Their arms, and honours, never can disgrace,
Or draw their swords in such a hated cause
In blood to seal a N------'s oppressive laws.
They'll spurn the servie;--Briton's must recoil,
And show themselves the natives of an isle
Who sought for freedom, in the worst of times
Produc'd her Hampden's, Fairfaxe's and Pym's,
But if by carnage we should win the game,
Perhaps by my abilities and fame,
I might attain a splendid glitt'ring car,
And mount aloft, and fail in liquid air,
Like Phæton, I'd then out-strip the wind,
And leave my low competitors behind.


ACT II.

SCENE II.

COLLATERALIS------DICK the PUBLICAN.

PUBLICAN.

THIS dull inaction will no longer do;
Month after Month the idle troops have lain,
Nor struck one stroke that leads us to our wish.
The trifling beckerings at the city gates,
Or bold outrages of their midnight routs,
Bring us no nearer to the point in view.
Though much the daily suff'rings of the people,
Commerce destroy'd, and government unhing'd,
No talk of tame submission yet I hear.


COLLATERALIS.

No -- -- -- not the least ---- ---- ---- ---- ---- ----
---- ---- ---- ---- ---- they're more resolv'd than ever.
They're firm, united, bold, undaunted, brave,
And every villa boasts their marshall'd ranks.
The warlike Clarion sounds through ev'ry street;
Both vig'rous youth, and the grey headed sire
Bear the Fusee, in regimental garbs,
Repairing to defend invaded right,
And if push'd hard, by manly force repel;
And tho' Britannia sends her legions o'er,
To plant her daggers in her children's breast,
It will rebound-- -- --New whetted, the keen point,
Will find a sheath in ev'ry tyrant's heart,
