Or, should fate lead him to some safer shore,
A sense of kindred, country, man, impress'd.
And well deserve inquiry's serious care,
The use, the pleasure, will the toil repay. 12. Nor study only, practice what you know
Your life, your knowledge, to mankind you owe. With Plato's olive wreath the bays entwine; Those who in study, should in practice shine. Say, does the learned lord of Hagley's shade, Charm man so much by mossy fountains laid, As when arous'd, he stems corruption's course, And shakes the senate with a Tilly's force? When freedom gasp'd beneath a Cæsar's feet, Then public virtue might to shades retreat : But where she breathes, the least may useful be, And freedom, Britain, still belongs to thee. 13. Though man's ungrateful, or though fortune frown;
Is the reward of worth a song, or crown? Nor yet unrecompens'd are virtue's pains; Good Allen lives, and bounteous Brunswick reigns. On each condition disappointments wait; Enter the hut, and force the guarded gate. Nor dare repine, though early friendship bleed, From love, the world, and all its cares, he's freed. But know, adversity's the child of God: Whom Heaven approves of most, must feel her rod. When smooth old Ocean, and each storm's asleep, Then ignorance may plough the watery deep ; But when the demons of the tempest rave, Skill must conduct the vessel through the wave.
14 Sidney, what good man envies not thy blow?
Who would not wish Anytus*—for a foe?
* One of the accusers of Socrates.
WATTS & RIPPON,
DAVID CLARK respectfully informs the public that he has published a second edition of that valuable Hymn Bouk published by Messrs. Anderson & Meelian, in the year 1820, containing in one volume, the Psalms and Hymne of Dr. Watts, as arranged by Dr. Rippon, with Dr. Rippon's Selection, The propriety of including both these works in one volume will appear, when it is considered that Dr. Rippon originally designed his Selection to be an Appendix to the Psalms and Hymns of Dr. Watts. As to form, the second edition differs from the first, ip being printed with larger type, and on a larger page. As to matter, no alteration whatever is made, either in the Hyınns or their arrangement, but into the Indexes of the work a valuable isoprovement is introduced. In the first edition there were distinct sets of Indexes of first lines of Scriptures and of subjects for the two parts of the work. In the present edition the Indexes of the Selection art, without any omission, incorporated with those of the arrangement, so as to make one complete Index for the whole volume,
The work is embellished with a Vignette Title, and a Portrait of Dr. Watte. A Portrait of Dr. Hippon will be added as soon as it can be obtained.
This Hymn Book is printed on fine paper, from new stereotype plates, and is handsomely and strongly bound in sheep. The price for a single copy is one dollar. Six copies can be had for $5, and thirteen for $10. To book seller or others taking a larger number of copies, a more liberal discount will be made.

Fourth st. or to the Agent of the Baptist General Tract Society, Philadelphia, and will receive prompt attention. Persons sending for books, will please be particular in stating the number wanted, and the way in which they are to be forwarded.
