Mv Lord,

T is the peculiar privilege of this country, in all matters of con- A cernmentto the state, to communicate our sentiments tothe public, to give out the alarm where we fee tlanger to the safety of our constitution, and to warn our fellow citizens of their approaching fate, upon the peril of B living, in our own esteem, base, siavifli, and degenerate traitors to the commonwealth.

Now, my Lord, it so happens, that public men are so closely connected with public transactions, that it is utterly impossible to give our opinions about the latter, without, in some measure, including the C former. Do not, therefore, my Lord, disdain this anonymous address from one who pretends not to the honour of your friendship. That restless, busy, <fsr«j and undoing spirit, which we call Ambition, has rendered you an object too important on cur scene, to suffer you to lie unnoticed, even in your retirement.

My Lord, there are many things in nature, which, though the most powerful in their operation, are visible only in their effects. Whirlwinds, tempests, earthquakes, are not perceived, till the ruin they scatter round prove sufficient evidences of their power. This needs no application. How, my Lord, am I to address you t as a mi- E nistcr? no. As an abdicated miniper f ne*. Is there then no appellation in our language for this minister, and no minister j this adviser without o slice and responsibility ; this invisible agent ; this secret spring of action; this terror to his country? Yes. It is the name of Favourite, ever hateful to Briti/h ears, and equally bane- p ful to the safety and honour of the Prince, and to the prosperity of the people. Since Cben, my Lord, this, of all others, the most dangerous, is, however, the most applicable, give me leave to speculate with your -.crd ti;p on the nature and office of a fa

vourite, who. if I were to define, I should describe u a subject fraught with selfishness: and artifice, who, abusing the noble qualities of his master to his own purposes, presumes to thrust himself between the affections of the prince and his people. He is not the servant of the people, for he is the reverse of every thing that is good to them j he hates, and is hated by them. He is not the servant of the crown, for he sullies and absorba its glory. His pride assumes homage to itself ; heassects to be the disposer of graces and honours, and to have .ill power depend upon his will. He flights and neglects his duty to his sovereign in public, to demonstrate to mankind his influence in private. He disgusts all free spirits, and finds pretences to remove every faithful servant from his master. He revenges his own quarrels in his master's name; changes friends and enemies without regard to his master's interest, and gives the sanction of royalty to every gust of weakness or paffioiMhat rises in his breast. He fills the court with new men. He plays party against party. He is ever treating,, accommodating, and negotiating, that, by keeping all men in fofpence, they may have their attention always fixed upon himself. He is envious of the glory of others; restless, and desirous of change; searing always, {hat frequent access to his master, diligent and faithful service, and long continuance in office, may create a rivalsliip, and become dangerous to his influence. He is insolent in his resentments, faithless to his engagements, ostentatious in his manners, and, to conclude, has a stile fitted only for the flatterers and fyeocophants by whom he is surrounded, and from whom he receives all his ideas. Such, my Lord," is the picture I mould draw at full length, of a Favourite; and I believe it will be found to pie'erve its resemblance, with very little alterations, through all ages, and in aU countries.

What then must the state of a country, groaning under the dominion of a Favourite, be r* All the evils that can flow from a discontented people, • disgusted and offended nobility, and a government deprived of Hi■ nnh and vigour, must be ilia natural consequence of lm tti^n. Good
