No. XLII. the new modelling of their new kingdom, by beautifully tempering thofe two-happy peculiarities, Scottifa elegance, and Scottijh aeconomy. When I had got home, and began to reflect, upon our expedition, though I muft confefs I was fomewhat ruffled by the unexpected infolence of my two companions, I was more heartily vexed, that what I had at firft conceived to be impoffible, upon recollection, appeared more than probable. There had indeed been fome pains taken, in the glorious reign of that pacific monarch, James the Firft, to eftablifh their right, founded upon this ltone, and warranted bv this prophecy ; but now, under the administration of the elder branch of that au<*uft family of the Stuarts, with fuch confpicuous abilities to fupport him, in all thofe meafures fo conducive to the welfare of his country, I think I may fairly wifh them joy of their prophecy being fulfilled, more efpecially as I find it corroborated and marked out for thefe times by another, which is as clear and cxprefs : When Andrew fl-.aU unite with James, And Tweed adulterate with Thames ; When Cod fr.dl make the Salmon rue, Blue turn to yellow, green to blue ; When John haves Marg'ret in the lurch% And Prejlyterians head the church; When cold Jamaica fends for * Peat From Florida to roajl her meat; When Reformation turns a fhrew, And ails as Riot us'd to do; When England'* lojl, and Britain winsy When Union1 V firm, and Strife begins .

The minifter himfelf firft broaches it, and afterwards the whole herd of his dependents is ordered to echo it through the nation. During the adminiftration of Mr. Pelham, the fafhionable word was candour. He frequently made ufe of it, and he really loved the thing more than the word. His whole public conduct gave the moil convincing proofs of his candour. The cant word of the present miniftry is Oeconomy. There is not a poor, infignifkant Englijh Tory, or Scottijh, Jacobite clerk, who has been three days in the cufiotns, or excife, but has already learnt his leffon, and talks inceffantly of the new minifter's oecono?ny. We hear of nothing but oeconomy, though we cannot, in any one bufinefs of national concern, difcern the leaft trace of it. It is become the Shibboleth of the whole Scottijh faction ; for their countryman is for ever retailing the word to us, t,-cn when he is practifinc; the moft unbounded prodigality. The word he never forgets: the application of it to any public bufinefs we have never yet experienced from him.
