os Such is the histry of your loyal Louse,

Whose presence breeds such tumult in the house."
The poet then notes the ill reception which this speech experienced ;
infomuch that the life of the little orator was endangered; when, lo!

Zephyr, so anxious for his life, drew near,
And sudden bore him to a distant sphere,
In triumph rais'd the animal on high,
Where Berenice's locks adorn the sky;
But now he wish'd him nobler fame to share,
And crawl for ever on BELINDA's hair.
Yet to the Louse was greater glory giv’n ;
To roll a planet on the splendid heav'n,
And draw of deep astronomers the ken;

The GEORGIUM SIdus of the fons of men !!!! Such is the conclusion of this heroic poem: but there is a great deal of comic matter in the preceding part of this fifth canto, which we have not room to particularize, and for which we must refer to the pamphlet.
