London Evening Post (Newspaper) - October 24, 1765, London, Middlesex Numb. 5928 From THURSDAY October 24, to SATURDAY October 26, 1765. [Price Two-pence Halt-penny I \ T F, R. ' Was greasy pleafed Mali reading, in fome ojr the papers, the following ' ai -tide of news : ''They �vrite from%j Dublin, thai fome of*he youngSmans have taken offence ^-^^at siometiqies alRiine to .jthemfejves j; ancl in oider to lower their pri&i liavefent notices* to be infer.ed in ;he public paper* there, That if any Manago, Muficitatt pr Phyer, flralT advenife in rhe papers, of fay- on the ftage, thai they have been prevailed or, ha ve been applied to, or that Jiiey will-oblige- tbe public, in playing, pr. ill performing pares of rhufic, or thea-tricalenceifainmenrs, they fhali bt biffedojf the Stage, or out of the Or/hefira " " Such a tefolution, h'ovev^r afTe&ed to be ftigtuatized, by fayirsg it is that of fome young Smarts, I cannot help confidering to be expreflive of found judgment and true ..'fpim; becaufe all men of undeiftanding '�|iift ronlider fuch airs of conferring obligations for money, or reputation to procure ihera,rmoney, infuffeiable impertinencies. 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, ' h;ti. n of the Dyer of Convocation, thougli fonnileU tjpo:i ancjenc .laws, is likely to excite murmuring and complaints amongft 0;ir Aibjedts of aii 'conditions, we expect of yon, our rrn/ty and well helored Coinnuilkmers, rhat in rhe tariH which rhe affembled ftates of the Repu'Jic have authorifvd you ro prepare, you will have rrg^J. ro the power and abiliries of each, and moderate rhe, in fuch a manner, as may ir. i.'uf-.UJy r>uke known with what ardwir we tic/ire tint o�ir fn!)jocts in*y pay thorn without violence, ai.d reap thercfroni great advantages. c nn, 111 at 4?p Norfolk, Ihr 4 s. 4d. per btiihel.
