(From the Greenock Advertiser of the 4th of April,1814.)
To the surprize and diappointment of every person con.
nected with the Wese Lud.a colonies, it has been announ-
ced (official y, we areiuformed) that it is net expected
iny convoy will be appoiited tu sail from thence before
the month of May. ‘This unaccountable neglect of the
best interests of the couniry may be attended with the
Mos serious consequences. At the colonics of Surinam,
Berbice, aid Demerary alone, there were upwards of 50
sail of vessels fully loaded on the Ist of February, besides
thout the same wumber in the windward Islands; and, at;
that time it was daily expected that a ship of war would.

Wild delusion still has sw ay,
Splendid visions o’er it ro I,
In the blaze of noun-tide day.
What but adccam! that he whose rod
Kept o’er the earth despotic sway,
Who breath’d defiance tu his God,
Should like a shade have pass’d away !
What but a dream—that he is now
Bencath the carth-worm, crawling vile,
Who rais’d to Heav’n his darkling brow,
Aud vicw’d its terrors with a smile,
View original What but a dream—that he is sons
Not as the mighty pass away,
But, like a wreteh to nothing burn,
Nor destin’d tu one glorions day !
What but a dream—that he has play’d
With crowns and sceptres at his will,
Now slave and robber turn’d—afraid
fis recreant heart’s blase bluud tu spill!
Besct by those he laugh’d to scorn,
Borne from his conque.’d realms away,
Goade by slaves iguobly born,
By Cossack’s spikes—his route to sway,
He who led armies, now is driven !
And is ¢his thea ne mockury—

On carth now grov'lins lis;
That son of glory fiercely bright
Huth sunk no more to cise ;
Saran thrown down from Heav’en’s height,
Ne'er sunk so low as thee,
Stull proud in Uell—in fallen might
Aud sullen Majesty.
Where is thy Roman virtue now ?
Thy stern contempt of death—
Thou fear'st ta see thy life-bloud low—
Thou fear’st to yield thy breath!
Where is (ny vaunted firmness ilod 2
Ou, where! thou abject man!
Seco dark dishonor round thy head,

E’en babes shall mocking lisp that name,

Or, that it fail’d the lightning’s flash,
‘Thyself would guard thy name,
Unseen, beneath the wild wave dash,
An vanish—ioto fame !
But no—no comet ! thou !—no star!
A scourge in Heaw’n’s hand—
Fore-doom’d to pour forth plague and war
O’er Furope’s sinful land!
Thy task is done—Atmictity Gop!
Now casts thee far away,
A wretched despis’d worthless rod,
To moulder and decay.
