CONSTANTINOPLE.
The stately buildings that arise,
In this city claim surprise;
The men and women turbans wear,
And cruel foes to christians are.
 ~
Jr A rvXS,
From Pont Neuf you behold a city,
Where all is gay and likewise witty;
The Tuilleries and Louvre too*
Are stately buildings to the view.
VIENNA.
This city is for learning famed,
Aud from the river Yien is named;
'Tis here the Emperor holds his court,
Where numerous foreigners resort.
 —— —
MADRID.
This city, pride of haughty Spain,
Is seated in a spacious plain;
The distant spire which you behold,
Is the king's palace crown'd with gold.
BERLIN.
The Prussians are a warlike race,
Yet agriculture will embrace,
When peace forbids the sword & shield.
They cultivate the harvest field.
 COPENHAGEN.
If you read the historic page,
Alfred your attention will engage;
Old England's King the Danes did beat,
And made them from her snores retreat.
s
AMSTERDAM.
Here commerce holds a potent reign,
And gives the Dutchman distant fame;
Boats and canals in every street,
You may in this vast city meet.
 PETERSBURG!!.
Of vast renown, in modern years,
The Kussian Empire appears,
But till great Peter rul'd the Nation.
The arts had little cultivation.
