O I could perceive fome little red Marks or Spots, which v-^ feemed to lie under tiiofe Words 1 but I could not at firft tell what to make of them, 'tiil upon looking more atten- % tively I difcovered the Word 1 YRANN\ in glowing Characters ; and the more ftrongly 1 gazed, the more vili ^ ble the Characters appear'd, 'till at length they were all over of a thorough blood Colour, and extremely legible. IT* -Behind him marched SLAVERY, who obierved the Motions of the former fo exactly, that he fet his Feet in his very Steps; and never put himfelf into any Pofture, but what he copy'd from his Mailer. The Right Wing was commanded by a Perfon who put on a venerable Appearance, and wore a kind of Triple-Crown or Mitre With thi? Infcription, The CATHOLICK RELIGION : He had juft fuch little Spots as the firft mentioned, which foon k:n-dled irito POPERY. This Wing I obferved had in it. an incredible Number of Priefts, Friars and Jefuits particularly I could diftinguifh the Faces of Ignatius Loyola, the Founder of that Order, and St.Dominic the Inventor of the Inquifition : And in one Corner I faw two very bufy and zealous Figures, with each of them a poifoned Kni'e in his Hand: I prefently knew them to be fames Clement, and Ravillac : They feemed much elated with the Merit of their Services, which however; I found was looked upon as greatly inferior to that of a third who ftood near them, and proved to be that eminent Saint and Martyr Cm Faux. The left Column had PREROGATIVE in the'Front, fpstted with the fame red Kind of Letters, which at firft were noteafily diftinguilhable, but in a few Minutes burft out into ARBITRARY POWER. Our Army which marched agairrft them (for I confide'r'd myfelf almoft as one of the Inhabitant?) had it's Center led on by LEGAL MONARCHY, it's Right Wing by �4 LIBERTY; and the Left by PROTES l'ANTiSM. O This Wing was compofed of a great Variety of Corps, each >-rj under their own peculiar Commanders, but all together ex- Q erted themfelves with great Alacrity under their common *"C3 Leader, and feemed every Man of them refolved rather to Q die upon the Spot, than fubmit to the common Enemy. V"^I There was fitting at fome little Diftance.from the Army, a Matron-like Lady very decently apparell'd, with a Lom-mon Prayer-Book upon her Lap : She feemed during the whole Action in great Anxiety, and frequently ca!t up her Eyes and Hands to Heaven in a very devout Mmner. One Thing I could not but take Notice of, whjch I be  lieve (he did not obferve herfelf, which was, that whenever her Eyes and Hands were thus employed, the Pro:eihnt Wing conftantly got Ground upon the Knemy ; but when fhe drooped or let them fall thro' Faintnefs (as fometimes fhejcould not avoid) it was as cOnftarttly forced to retire. It feemed to me, that this was not a Wr.r of one Nation or People only, but of the whole World ; for I faw humberiefs Perionages of every Age and Country, ranking themfelves on one Side or the other. There was one whole Corps in the Army of the lfhnders, compofed of antient Remans, who were led on with great Condu:t by Lucius Junius Brutus, and had their Rear commanded by his Defcendant Marcus Brutus : Cato engaged with great Firmnefs ; ard Cicero, by the meer Thunder of his Voice, ftruck Catiline dead, who fought on the oppofite Side. Tatquinius Superbus and his Sons, ranked themieives very near the Perfon of the Invader, and feemed to make his Cafe entirely their' own. Philip of Macedcn likewife \-p? charged on that Side, but drop'd his Arms upon hearing ^ Dcmojlbenrs the Athenian, encouraging the Iflanders: And I could not but obferve, that the bra veil and moft virtuous of the' Greeks, ranged themfelves in the Iflanders Right- ^ Wine;. Arijiides the Juft was very diftinguilhable ; aud a> the God-like Timoleon, who with great Succefs defeated the ^ Attempts of Dionyftus, Tyrant ot Syracufe.  Great Numbers of the Moderns likewife exerted themfelves. Philip II. of Spain, and Lcuis XIV. of France, fought in the Center of the Enemy, but were each of them obliged to retire by a Female Hand ; the former by Elizabeth, the lat;er by 'O^ Anne, aifiiled by her General Marlborough. The two noble Earls of Clarendon and Southamjtjn, charged with great Bravery in our Center ; ADVERTISEMENTS are taken in for this Paper, at Lloyd's Coffee-House, in Lombard-Street. No Wooden-Shoes.
