There proud their conqu’ring banners seem to rise,
And fann'd by shadowy triumphs flout the skies :

But lo! th' avenging pow'r appears,
His victor-flag immortal Nelson rears;
Swift as the raven's ominous race
Fly the strong eagles o'er th' ethereal space.

The Gallic barks the billowy deep divide,
Their conquests lost in air, o'erwhela'd in shamc their pride."

The hour of vengeance comes---by Gados' tow'rs,"

By high Trafalgar's ever-trophied shore,
The god-like warrior on the adverse pow'rs

Leads his resistless feet with daring, prore.
Terrific as th’ electric bolt that flies
With fatal shock athwart the thund'ring skies,
By the mysterious will of Heaven

On man's presuming offspring driven,
Full on the scatter'd foe he hurls his fires,
Performs the dread behest, and in the Aash expires---

,, . VI. .
But not his fame---While chiefs who bleed
For sacred duty's holy meed,
With glory's amaranthine wreath,
By weeping Victory crown'd in death,
In Hist'ry's awful page shall stand
Foremost amid th' heroic band,
Nelson! so long thy hallow'd name
Thy country's gratitude shall claim;
And wbile a people's pæans raise
To thee the choral hymn of praise,
And while a patriot Monarch's tear
Bedews and sanctifies thy bier,
Each youth of martial hope shall feel

True valour's animating zeal;
With emulative wish thy trophies see,
And heroes yet unborn, shall BRITAIN owe to thee.

JAN to Any Q3, 1806. A'. a quarter past four o'clock in the morning, at his house near Putney, the Right Honorable WILLIAM Pi 11, first Lord of the Treasury, Chancellor of the Exchequer, Lord Warden of the Cinque Ports, high steward, and one of the representatives of the University of Gambridge. The death of so illustrious a personage, so pre-eminent a statesman, and so virtuous a minister, would at any time have called forth the sympathetic anxiety of every lover of his country. At this pe— culiar moment, however, when the fate of all that is near and dear to us, seems to hang in a most perilous situation of suspence, such a loss is dreadful, we had almost said that it was the seal of dreadful destruction. It would appear as if it augured to an ungrateful nation the loss of those blessings, which it has too generally treated with contempt. But we turn from the croud of unpleasing reflections which this most melancholy and portentous event has obtruded upou our minds, to a hasty sketch of the life of the truly great character whose death

we, with every honest man in the

united kingdom, cannot but sincerely deplore. William Pitt, the youngest son of the illustrious earl of Chatham, was born on the 28th of May 1759. His father paid the greatest attention to his education, and particularly to his classical studies, which he pursued under the direction of a private tutor at the place of his nativity, Burton Pynsent in the county of Somerset, which was the residence of his family, For the purpose of accustoming him to deliver himself with precision, elegance, and force of argument, the earl used frequently to enter into little disputations with him, and he was wont to encourage him to converse with others upon subjects which seemed far beyond his years, At the age of fourteen he was placed under the care of the Rev. Mr. (now Dr.) Wilson, a clergyman of great merit; and soon ofter he was sent to Pembroke Hall, Cambridge, where he was admitted under the tuition of Messrs Turner and Prettyman. The former of whom is now dean of Norwich, . and the latter bishop of Lincoln.
