Yet this Alex nder had no fooner finilhed his Conquers in the Eaif, but al! his Learning and Philol'ophy vaniihed j the Liberal Arts were rhought of no more -, and he became a Tyrant and Murderer of his moir lpecial Friends. On^is Return from Gedrofia in Carmania, drawing towards the Confines of Perfia, he gavehim-islt up to Feafting and Revelry 5 Vices, lays a great Author, bad enough in themlelvest but which always inflamed this King to Cruelty. The Hangman, fiys Quintius CurtiuJ, always followed theFeafti he had fent Cleander to mord�r P-rmenio, one of his oldeft Officers and beft Friends; and on Cleaodet's Return, with �oo Men. who aded in the Execution or Parmenio and his Friends, they were all put to Death. This was improving Murder upon Murderi and which now every Day became lo natural to him, that he was at length as much dreaded by bis belt Friends, or more, than by his Enemies. If a King fo well inffructed ran lo eafily into thele Violences, againft Humtn Nature, what may be expected from - luch as are not advantaged by anequ*l Edacation? But Alexandar is not a-lone in Hiftory, con rider ed even in the Light of - a Learned. Prince ; tor the Murders committed by Alexander in his Cups, when Wine hat! inflamed and intoxi-ated his Senfes, were equalled by Au-guftus Carlsr, in bis lober Senles, or only intoxicated by Ambition; be drew Lots with th� Triumvirate, his Fellow^Burchera, to cut off Friends and Foes, indifferently, without Regard to Humanity, Honour, or any other facred Tye. And among the unlearned Princes that lucceeded him, we rind little ellepurfuad but Rapine and Mifery. That this ruined the Roman State at lift, as jt did the Macedonian Empire, matters ljttle >, while Ambition and Power reigned Supreme, Cruehy kept equal Pace with them; Alexander never lived to be fober and repent; Auguftus Cxfar, by a peculiar and unprecedented Turn of Thought became at laft a mikl and merciful Prince; due as he had at his fet ting out purlucd huh bloody Maxims, he rs generally followed in the fiilf, m-ther than in the latter Part of his Reign, by luch Pnnces as are more ftimulated by Ambition thanReafon. From his firlt Acts has Machiavel drawn his worft Maxims, the reft from the Conduct of lorn* Popes more wicked than Augailus Cacfar. The Kings of France are falling as faft ai they can into the fartie Train of Thinking. Lewis the XlVth began his Cruelties on his own Subjects; and was propagating them farther j and had he not been check's in his Career by the glorious and iramot ra 1 Houfe of Orange, and a final Conciufi-on put to them by the Conduct of the Duke of Marlborough, it is hard to fay where they would have ended, or whether any Man in Europe itoald have nulled his Life or Effate his own. Lewis the XVth hasfhewn exactly the fame Dil'pofition;and, in fome Meafure,acted the fame Par^i Led by trie Prieflj, and ftimulated by Anrbition and Cruelty, he proceed^ in the beft Manner he is able by a parcllel Track 3 ahd tho' much inferior in Power to his Grandfather, not a Joe the lefs pertinacious in his Purfuits. We may furely, as reafoning Men, learn from thefe verified Speculations, that nothing cafe make a free People file,' but the tbr folutc Deftruction of that Power which hangs ' over us like a heavy Cloud, ready everV Moment to burft. We fee our Frontiers invaded; the Dutch reduced to a very precarious Dilemmi > ind the whole Commerce of Europe on the Point of falling into the Hands of a Prince, who, by the Prodigality fhewn in tht Expence of his own Subjects Lives, will admit bo Bounds to his Am' bition and Cruelty j not fhall we ever have an End ofthefe threatening Dangers, onleis determi ned to give the fiaiihing Stroke to the Powtr of Fiance. How we are to do it, is fooner faid than executed; but this is certain, tbat our Liberty, and all that is dear and valuable to us, is worth bravely oon�end�ng for. Death itJelf is to be preferred to Slavery; and if it is ih the Decrees I of Fate that we muft fall, let us, by e*erting our i urmoft Efforts, either rile fuperjor to our Enemy, Or make our Exit heroically.

Something of the latter no doabt there was, but not a great deal of tnc former, unlefs X am deceived. Our .Northern Hero began to deipafr ot the Bufinefs, y trcih People, forced our Grenadiers to repafs the G�rge. While this was paflGng jri the Ravelin, fomc ' other Troopscoaited along the Baftion, found the Sally Ports open on the Flanks of the Saftions of Coehornand PuceJle; they had theHardineis :c? en er, and pulhirig oh boldly found in poflciiionof the two Baifions, where they b gm to entrench thctnfelves immcdiateiy, fearing tome Surprize* as being not able to perluade :h;r :ives Fortune could be lo kind as the tealiy �ai.
