On me was built the first made star. Nor leaves his footstep's mark behind : For me the saint will break his word, Hark, how his absent dam he mourns,

By the proud atheist I'm rever'd ; No joy he tastes till the returns, At me the coward draws his sword,

See, as he rids the verdant way, And by the hero I am fear'd.

What fudden starts his fears betray ; Scorn'd by the meek and humble mind, For if, perchance, the gentle breeze Yet otten by the vain pofseis'd ;

Steals softly whispering thro' the trees, Heard by the deaf, seen by the blind, Or if the frighted lizard wake,

And to the troubled conscience rest. And guiltless stir the rustling brake, Than wisdom's sacred self I'm wiser,

Trembling he leaps from fide to side, And yet by every blockhead known : Where pale mitrust and fancy guide. I'm freely given by the miser,

So, peevithly averse to joy, Kept by the prodigal alone.

No joyous (mile her features warms ; As vice deform'd, as virtue fair,

Eltminster - Bridge being

esteemed by all judges in

architecture to be the most

curious ftru&ure of its
kind in Europe, the fel.

lowing is the account of it,
as deliverred to his majesty. This bridge
is 408 yards in length, 15 yards in breadth;
the passage for foot passengers is seven feet,
being raised one foot from the carriage road
to prevent accidents, &:. It has 15 a.ches,
The center arch being 76 feet wide. The
14 piers obstruct the passage of the water
353 feet, and have a free course of water
870 feet, which is four times more than
between the sterlings of London bridge ;
which gives room for a sufficient paffage
of water without a fall, by which care
all country barges and working craft,
boats, &c. may pass thro' without danger.
(See a View of this bridge, in our Mag.
for March, 1749.)

On May 30, was celebrated the an.
niversary of the birth of their royal high-
nesses the princesses Amelia and Caroline,
when the former entered into the 41st, and
the latter into the 39th year of her age.

His majesty, in a landau and fix, at.
tended by the earls of Lincoln and Pomfret,
guarded by the horse-grenadiers, went to
Richmond lodge, where the prince of
Wales and prince Edward, with princess
Augusta, met him, and dined; after
which his majesty went to Kew, to see
the young princes and princesses, where
he drank tea with them, and after staying
about two hours, return'd to Kensington
about nine o'clock.

The prince of Wales and prince Edward
went for the first time in their equipages
to Kensington. The footnien of his royal
highness in the livery of the late prince,
and prince Edward's in crimson turned up
with green. They attended his majesty
to the chapel.

Mr. Welch, the high constable of West-
minster, with a warrant from justice Field.
ing, went, about twelve o'clock this
night, to the masquerade near Exeter.
'Change, where several idle persons of both
sexes, in masquerade habits, were op.
pichended, and carried before the said
justice, who sat up all night to examine
them. Several of them, when tripped
of their antic dresses, were found to be
young gentlemen of falhion, under 20

years of age, whose names and persons the justice did not think proper to expose, and therefore, as he was unwilling to thew any partiality, after a severe reprimand, he dismissed all the prisoners ; tho' some of them (particularly the females) could not give a very good account of themselves. Hence it appears how necessary it is to aboIith these scenes of midnight rendezvous.

SATURDAY, 8. This morning, at seven o'clock, his majefty, the prince of Wales, prince Ed. ward, and princess Augusta, in a landau and fix, attended by the earl of Harcourt and lord Cathcart, in a coach and four, went to Kew, and breakfafted with the young princes and princesses there, from whence they went to Richmond lodge, where his maesty dined with che dukes of Dorset and Newcastle, after which he went to Hampton, and drank tea with the princess Amelia, and in the evening returned to Kensington. The same day his majesty was pleased to present the garter of his late royal highness the prince of Wales, to prince Edward :- - Thus we had frequent accounts of his majesty's visiting, and receiving visits from, the princess dowager of Wales, the prince of Wales, and the other young princes and princesses.

TUESDAY, JI. This evening about eleven o'clock, Mr. Fargues, cierk to Mr. Rigail, a merchant in Bell-alley, Coleman. Areet, was robbed and murdered by some villains, in the road leading from Windmill- hill to the Barkingdogs. It appeared that he had received a violent blow on his head and three stabs in his body. He had been to see Mr. Fargues, (his uncle) who keeps the academy near the Haberdashers alms houses at Hoxton, and on his return met with this unhappy acci. dent. The wounds he received were suppored to be done with a knife, one was in the left breast, which reached his heart, a. nother on the left lide below the navel, and The third in the upper part of his right side, belides a large cut behind his right ear, and his Ikull fractured in a very terrible man. ner, supposed to be done with a fick, They took from him a watch, but what money is uncertain.
