The Rubicon now passed, my credit gone,
I knew there were but few whom I could Irust,
And those few clung to me, alas! alone,
From mammon's longing fur the golden dust.
Openly condemned for my dissimulation,
Nought but a late avowed repentance served,
To bind a few to me whose inclination,
doomed greatly from me by events t'hve sweared.
Again I sought my old game to resume,
I tried their justly hi-t respect to gain,
Seeking by dinners., al I couxing loits t'illume

Another had married a wile and could not come,

Nor by ill maierncs, nor c'en by insulting deeds.

The humble petiium ad msaprial ofthe Assembly of
We your Majesty's most dutiful and loyal subjects, the
Asseinbly of Jamaica, huvingtaken into our consideration
the present critical state of the colonies, humbly approach
the throne to assure your Majesty of our most dutiful re-
gurd to your royal person and thfrily, and our attach-
ment to, and reliianceon, our fellow objects in fRutr Britain,
fuundodaln the imust solid and dlurabli basis, toe continued
enjoyment of our personal right, and the security of
our properties.
That weak and feeble as this colony is, from its very
small number of white inhabitants, and its peculiar situa-
tion from the encumbrance of more than two hundred
thousand slaves, it cannot be suOtaed hdat we now intend
or even could have intended, resistance to Great Britain.
That this Colony has never, by riots or other violent
measures, opposed or permitted an act of resistance Rgainst
any law imposed on us by Great Britain, though alwny,
truly wsesible of our just rights and of the pernicious con-
sequences lboth to tie parent and infant state with which
some of ltem nutst be attended; always rely ing with lthe
most implicit confidence on the justice and ipatrnal ten-
derness of your Majesty, even to the most Ifeebil anid dis-
tant of your subjlicts: and depending, that wlien your
Majesty and your Parliament should have mnaturely con-
sidered and deliberated oin te claims of Grnat Britain and

this island; in whose favour it' is decled, by a royal

That, to ue de name or authority of the ~ pl o

and destroys that confidence which the people have eve
had, and ought to have, of the most solemanoyal grants
in their faviur, and renders unstable aud insecure those
very rights and privileges which prompted their emigration.
that yvor colonists and y l petitioners, having the
most implicit confidence in fllb royal faith, pledged to
them in the most solostm manner by your predecessso,
rested satisfied with their different portions of the royal
grants; and having been bred from their infancy, to vib
rate the name of parliament, a word still dear to the heart
of every Briton, and considered q the palladium of liber-
ty, and the great source from whense their own is derived,
received tile several acts of Parliament of England and
(reat Brituin, for the regulation of the trade of the colo-
nies, as the salutary precautions of a prudent faster, for
the prosperity of a f ide extended famnil ; ani, that in
this light we receive them without n houghlll onf qtisnion-

confer on then a power of Ieislating for us, far 1k:a bit
of destroying us and our cliild.n, by divesting us of all

Thai, witi reluctance, we have been drawn from the
prosecution of our internal affairs, to behold with ameso-

rose of visiting Adelaide Town, ate wtern past
the Island. After proceeding about 18 mile on
route, due hone of Mr. Walker, the Collectorof the
toms, fell with him, and we understand that the genoo
man has been injured most sriusly, one of his arms .

Mr. Walker was found in a most deplorable sitilbl
by some gentemen of the party, who wore in the rear
his Excellency, and was by tiem conveyed to a houe h
the neiglhbourlhood, from whence he was brought to totn
last night.

Some villain, or villains, made an attempt on Sunday
night last to break into die shop of Mrs. Montell, in Marke
street, and succeeded in breaking a padlock, but beian
disturbed, tiey made off. They afterwards visited the shop
of Mr. Necks, in the same street, and made a similar at-
telmpt after scaling a very high wall, but there also dr
were unsuccessful.
The public will do well to look closely to the safety of
ilhir lbillings at night, and the night piard, we are con.
vinced, will continue to do their duty, but we think dtir
