The following satirical song is re published
from Mr. Fessenden’s “ Weekly Inspector.”
In perusing it, the reader will recognise the
well pointed wit of “Terrible Tractoration”
and “ Democracy unveiled.”

LORI), only look ! there goes a fop ?
As nice a thing as e’er did hop,
And dangle round a lady !
A dainty dapper bit of man,
As fine as spangles on a fan,
Or pincks Upon a May-day.
See how it flaunts about, and stares,
And how it ogles, winks, and stares,
With painted cheeks so rosy 1
All essenc’d up with burgamot,
Powder’d, Poma*tim’d, and what not,
O, what a pretty posey 1
See round, and round, and round it skips,
To twenty lovely ladyships,
And chatters like a pie, Sir 1
It talks ns much as tho’ the brains
Its little squashy head contains,
Would till Musqueto’s eye, Sir.
Now see it balance up to Sue,
And now it tramps away to Prue,
And now sets out to stalk a
Mu met —the fiddle squeals;
Grand as a turkey cock it feels,
, With Miss KetUrah Gawkev 1
And nqvv with deary, down it squats,
And chats and grins, and grins and chats,
Like some baboon’s relation j
And, bless us, look* what loving works !
One simpers, and the other smirks,
All flummery and flirtation!
“ But,” quoth Tom Tawdry, “ mark how well
“ Sir Fopling suits each dashing belle—
“ Your rai'ing I’m afraid is
“ The effect of disappointed spleen,
*• Because the beau is formost seen
“In favor'of the ladies.”
He please the ladies! very good,
Why then I would’nt if I could,
So notab.ie my spunk is;
I’d let them sooner seek gallants
From Afric’s coast, or that of France,
Brisk Sans Culottes—or monkies.
Amusements of Modern Young Men.
Gaming, talking, swearing, drinking,
Hunting, shooting, never thinking—
Cha tering nonsense all day long,
Humming half an opera song.
Choosing baubles, rings, and jewels,
Writing verses, fighting duels,
Mincing words in conversation,
Ridiculing a 1 the nation
Admiring their own pretty faces,
As if possessing aii the graces :
Ant' tlv.i’ ;io bigger than a ox at,
Peeping under each girl s hat.

AMIABLE INSTANCE OF LIBERALITY.
DURING the latter part <>t’ the A
merican war, Captain (afterwards lord)
Nelson had the command of a ship on
that station, and took a schooner be
longing to Plymouth (in America) a
bout forty miles-from Boston, the Cap
tain of which was put on shore to go to
his home.’ Some time after he observ
ed Nelson sailing up the Bay of Boston,
and his prise at a short distance. The
Captain of the schooner immediately
fitted out a bout, put one or two sheep
in, u;*i filled it with vegetables with
which he sailed for Nelson, and on coin
ing alongside threw the articles on the
deck, and jumped on board, and desir
ed Capt. Nelson to accept them, which
he did, but observed to Captain Carver
that he must have some motive for his
kindness, and desired to know what it
was ? Carver, with doubt and hesita
tion, said he had. What is it? was
replied; he answered, that he could
scarcely expect it, but it was to return
him his schooner again, it was his all.
Nelson immediately wrote the following
certificate, and gave it him :
“ These- are to certify, that I took
the schooner Harmony, Nathaniel Car
ver, master, belonging to Plymouth;
but on account of his good services,
have given up his vessel again. Dated
on hoard his Majesty’s ship, Albemarle,
17th of August, 1782.
“ Boston Bay.
HOR ATIO NELSON.”
The above certificate is framed and
glazed, and now hangs in a gentleman’s
parlour at Boston.

Gentlemen who have never read
this celebrated performance may form
some idea of its intrinsic worth and im
portance to our country, by perusing
the following extract of a letter (to the
editor,) from his Excellency thePresi
, dent of the United States.
Washington, Dec. 13, 1804.
YOU ask my opinion on the sub
ject of publishing the works of Alger
, non Sidney. The world has so long
and so generally sounded the praises
of his “ discourses on government,” that
it seems superfluous, and even pre
sumptuous, for an individual to add his
feeble breath to the gale. They art in
truth a rich treasure of republican prin
ciples, supported by copious and co
gent arguments, and adorned with the
finest flowers of science: It is probably
the best elementary book of the principles
of government , as founded in natural
right, that has ever been published in
any language.... Arid, it is much to be
desired in such a government as ours,
that it should be put into the hands of
our youth, as soon as their minds are
sufficiently matured for that branch of
study. Should you proceed to the pub
lication, be so good as to consider me
a subscriber; and accept my saluta
tions and assurances of great esteem
The Revd. Mr. Weems.
