TO THE MANAGER OF THE BRITISCHE PRESS
[From the British Press, Oct. 10.] SIR, I HAVE arrive two week from Riga, where, and
Petersburg and Mosco, I have hear mutche of Britische liberaltie, gustice, charite, and loyalte believe this thing, becauze I see the height honour of Britische merchand in these citys-Since I come to this countrie, I have mutche cause to dout this true ; and I will say you why-The first curious thing I go to see after the grand churche of Sto Paulo, and Westminister, and the big piller, call Monment, was the convockashon of the merchands of Londre, call common countzel.--Here, as the dictionare teach the word, I found the work very common indeed. They questchon whether to be loyal by dine together or no; and I find they say that dinner in Englonde is good thing (which indeed I do now know) but never befor that it was loyal thing-So mutche Í say to myself for the loyalte of the Britische-I then go to the beautyfull theatre de Covent Jardin, which is indeed the magnificint prove of Englische liberalibe and splendor-How I do stare when I find that the liberal Englische come with all sort of dam din to drive from there stage a beautyfull woman, a foreigner, claiming there proteckshon; and the mos fine singer in the worle-At Petersburg, those the Englische call savage Russ bears, treat her otherways-So mutche I again say to myself for Englische liberalite.
Encore I consider Englische gustice, when I hear that the poor gentleman in blak dress have spent a fortune upon this splendor building, and thai. he have not for lis
money so mutche as underwriter have for insure one cargo from Hollande to Englonde. This is prove by great men in Londre, who sine a paper to say sos and yet Englische gustice will say No, on mere gurmise. N 6
276 FORT LILLO; OR, THE DREAM. Poh! say I, this is Englische gustice. As for English charite and other virtues, I have not yet made the inquire; but if they are like there loyalte, liberalite, and gustice, the Good Father send me safe to Siberia, or Kanschatka. I subscrive myself to you, Sir, who have take a noble part in this questschon (and are I think in my heart a Russ) your very good friend,
De RIGA, Pardonne ny bad Englische; it is good enuff for the : bad subjeck.
FORT LILLO; OR, THE DREAM.
(From the Morning Chronicle, Oct. 11.]
Borne high upon the sportive billow,
Big with the fate of strong Fort Lillo.
The juvial sailors sung twang-dillo;
On the destruction of Fort Lillo.
The Knight repose sought on his pillow;
Bergen-op-Zoom and strong Fort Lillo.
And both of turtle took their fill O;
Still dwelt on vengeance and Fort Lillo.
In his right hand he held a pill O,
And thou shalt conquer strong Fort Lillo."
And thank'd the doctor for his skill O;
THE RIVAL MANAGERS.
Astounded at this dread portent,
He straight conceiv'd the omen ill O,
And turn'd his back upon Fort Lillo.

OLD G-E R-E'S NEV MODE OF SWEARING.
[From the same, Oct. 12.]
“ An oath! I have an oath in heaven!"-SHYLOCK,
That George so often vows to God;
And does not wish to leave it;
Would any man believe it?
THE RIVAL MANAGERS.
[From the same.] AT
T Covent Garden, ev'ry night,
Two managers the town delight;

Or pale Monopoly expires.
