Extract rrox Moore’s FasL,
The Panther, the Horse and other Bests,
. THE man who sccks to win the fair,
(So custom says) must truth forbear
Must fawn ard flatter, cringe and lie,
"And raisc the goddess to the skys
For truth is hateful to her ear,
And rudeness which she cannot bear
A rudeness '—Yes---1 speak myjthoughts ;
For truth upbraids her with her faults.
How wretched, Chloe, then am I,
Who love you and yet cannot lig,
And stili to muke you less my ffiend,
1 strive your errors to amend L /
‘Butshall the senseless fop impdrt
The softest passions to Your heart,
While he who telis you honest truth,
Awd points to happiness your youth,
» Determines by his care, Lis lot,
And lives neglected or forg ot:
Trust me my dear, with greater case,
Your taste for flatt’ry I couid please.
And similes m each dull line,
Like glow-worms in the dark should shine.
What if I say your lips disclose
The freshness of the op’ning rose? ,
Or that your cheeks are beds of flow’ers,
Enripened by refreshing SHOW rs ?
Yet certain as these flow’rs shall fade,
Time every beauty wii invade.
‘The butterfly of various hue,
More than the flow’r resembles you :
Fair flutt’ring, fickic busy Lilg,
To pleasure ever on wie wing,
Gayly coqueung for an hour, J
To dic, and ne’er be thought of more.
Would you thie biooi 0: youth should last?
Tis virtue that must bind 1 tasy, |
An easy carriage wiolly free,
From sour reserve or fevity ; |
Good-tiatur’d mirth, an open héait,
And looks unskill’d in an y part;
Humility, enough to own
The frailties, which a friend makes knowns
Aud decent pride, enough © know
The worth wat vircae can bestow.
Tucse are te charms winch ne'er decay,
Th’ youth ai beauty tude away,
And tie, which ali Liligs cise iemoves, |
Still heightens virtue and wu proves.
Youll frown and ask to what init
This blunt audress to you is sca ¢
Pll spare the question, and coniess
I'd praise you, it 1 lov'u you less :
But rail, oe angry or complain,
I will be rude, while you rc vain.
Leneath a Lion's peacetul reign,
When beasts met friendly on the plain,
A panther of niujestic port,
(The vainest feinaie of the court)
With spotted ski aud eyes oi fire,
Fill’ every bosom wi desire,
Wherc'er sic moved, a servife croud,
Ol fawning creatures cring’d anu bow’d ;
ABSCIILIICS every week she Lely,
(Lake modern belies) with coxcombs fil’d ;
Wiiere noise, ana nouscuse, and Brace,
And lies ana scar das fila the nace.
Behold the gay iantasuc tung,
Encircied by tic specious ring ;
Low-bowing, with important 100k,
As first In rank the monkey Spoke.
“ Gad take me madam, but i Sware,
No angel ever look’d 80 fair—
Forgive my rudeness, but 1 vow,
You were not quite divine till no.
Those limbs! that shape ! and then those
O close them or the gazer dies ?
“ Nay, gentle pug, for goodness hush,
I vow and swear you make me blusk, ;
I shall be angry at this rate,
“Tis so like flat’ry, which I hate.”
‘The Fox, in deeper cunning vers’d,
The beauties of her mind rehears’d,
And talk’d of knowledge, taste and sense,
To which the fair have vast pretence |
Yet well he knew them aways vain

And piay’d so cunningly his part, §

The Goat in solemn, piteous mood,
Avow’d Lis flame, and own’d he lov’d.
~The hog her neatness much admir’d ;

While all to feed Ler folly strove,
And by their praises shar’d her love.
The Horse whose generous heatt disdain’ds
* Applause, by seryile flatt’ry gain'd,
With graceful courage sience broke,
And thus with indignation spoke.
When flatt’ring monkeys fawn and prate,
They justly raise contempt er hate
For ment’s turn’d to ridicule,
Applauded by the grinning fool.
The artful Fox your wit commends,
To lure you to his selfish ends ;
From the vile flatt’rer turn away ;
For knaves make friendship to betray.
Dismiss the train of fops and fools,
And learn to live by wisdom’s rules.
Such beauties migh t the Lion warm,
Did not your folly brake the charm ;
For who would court that lovely shape,
To be the rivai of an ape ?
He said, and sporting an disduiny
Spurn’d at the crow’d and sought the plain.
CHARACTER OF DR SMOLLET.
BY DR. MOORE.
The person of Smollet was stout and
well proportioned, his countenouce engage-
ing. his manner reserved, with a certain air
of dignity that seemed to indicate that he
‘was not unconscious of his own powers. He
was of a disposition so humane and gener
ous, that he was ever ready to serve the
unfortunate, and on some occasions 10 assist
them beyond what bis circumstances could
justify. Though few could penetrate with
more accuicness into character, yet none
was more apt to overiook misconduct when
attended with misfortune. He lived in a
hospiiable manner, but he despised that
hospitaiity whic 1s founded on ostentation
which entertains only those, whose situa-
on in life flatters the vanity of the entertain-
er, or such as can make returns of the
same kind ; that hospitality, which kecps
adebior aud creditor account of diners.
Smoilet invited to his plain but plentiful
table, the person whose character he ese
teemed, in whose conversation he delight.
ed, and many for no other reason than be-
cause they stood in need of his countenance
and protection. As nothing was more ab-
horrent to his nature than pertness or intru-
sion, few things could render him more in-
dignant than a cold reception ; to this, how-
ever, be imagined he had sometimes been
exposed, on his application in favor of 0-
thers : for himself he never made applica-
tion to any great man in his life. £
Free (rom vanity, Smoilet had a consider-
able s are of pride, and great sensibility ;
his passions were casily moved, and too im-
petuous when roused ; he couid not con-
ceal his contempt of icliy, his detestation of
fraud, vor retrain from proclainung his ins
dignation against every species of oppress”
ion. Though Jmollet possissed a versa-
tility of style in wring, which he coud ac-
commodate to every character, he bad no
suppleness in his conduct. His learning
diiiigence and natural accuteness would
have rendered him eminent i the science
.of medicine. had ue persevered in that pro”
fessiou ; other parts of his Character were
ill suited for augmenting his practice. He
could neither stoop to impose on credulity
nor humor caprice. He was ofan intrepid,
independant, imprudent disposition, equally
incapable of deceit and adulation, and more
disposed to cuitivate the acquaintance of
those he could serve, than those who could
serve him. What wonder a man of his
character was not what is called successful
in fife, \
Civility is a tribute which every decorous
individual of society has aright to expect.
The truly polite are never deficient it. It
has been known to shine more conspicuous-
ly in some places than others.
The generality of people judge of us, by
our reputation or fortune.
Nauwrally to be without envy is a certain
mdication of great qualities.
Fortune and eaprice govern the world.
Magnavimity contemns ali to ob.aiapll. |
