The aifumed by fome of thefe ' inftrumeois of our diverilon, is of late gr6w-th. in this kingdom, and is indeed as prefumptuousas really ridiculous. The vanity of thefe impoftam people, at leaft in their own opinions, and ihofe of ff>ojs, is become fuch, that ihey feeui to affe� all theconfequence of the firft perfons of. the Slate, and appear to think more attention is due to them, than to Mini iters, Etnbaffadors, Admirals, Generals, and, I was going to fay, Princes. How, for example, have our papers been of late filled whh ex-piefled hopes and fears,, doubts and expectations, aflurances 2nd apprehenfions, of one man's determinations to oblige the public or not j but at length, after a ihoufand perplexities.about a matter of fuch great rao . raent, and vith all the parade of prepaia.ion for reception, that could be due to a Deliverer^ hiv ooudt^jt, or a Cnnqrttrnr of the �WorTd,are t61 �m ^tt be favoured with* the performances, now and then, of an A&w in Comedy; but the fatigue of. going through a character in Tragedy is not to be expected, for the gratification of a people, whofe unmerited generofity has bellowed on him a minifteiial eltate'; ho, that is a favour, we are told, that can be done to oblige a Sovereign, as we aftf gJven to fuppofe. OW ye con-temptlbjp great, and pitiably foolilh. little peopie^T let this inltance of feif-important arrogance reflect, as from a mirror, the dif-gracefol image of your degeneracy, in the reducing of you to the joyful acceptance of fuch defpicable favours. How much more fpirited, manly, and honourable, is the conduit of the Irilh, whodifdain fuch humiliations to the inftru-tnents of their diverfion ! Is there fuch a want of dignity among us, as to make us bear with a treatment which renders us fo abjeft and fervile in the gratifications of fuch vanity and felf-imponance ? Think �f what debafed the Romans from Freedom, aid the command of the whole earth, to the fcandalous condition of Bullies for parses in the Circus, and to the  raeannefs of fconipounding for the restoration of a ba-ni&ed Aclor, with the payment of a grievous tax ; and then rhink how the more manly Savages of America mult eftimate your njerus, frpm being tuld of your ftooping to fuch defpicable raeannefs. i am, Mr. Printer/ Your con (la'nt Reader, ' <~ -..�d&jiusmtiii Englishman. ^ C<GUNT R Y NEWS, Chtjkr, Off. 1 j� On.
