Philadelphia, Jan. 6, 1794. raSf tjro From the Columbian CentyieL The Thespian corps are in con ((ant ex ercise for the approaching campaign From them much is expetted ; and from their profeffional abilities and attention, expectation will be realized. The tragedy of Gustavus Vasa, the gallant and patriotic Swede, is to be hon oured as the introdu£tory exhibition. The entertainment, as we understand, will be that of " Modern Antiques, or the Merry Mourners." A luxuriant feall for the difciplesof Thalia, The censors have decided on the introdu&ory Prologue. It i 9 in the hands of our favorite Pewell; and from his hands, it will come forward with sdditi tional merit, ft i 6 said to be a specimen of American genius highly honorary to our country ; from the fame hand, we conjecture, who has so often delighted the public,with his beautiful numbers, in the Centinel, where, in due time, it (hall be deposited. The propofalof Mr. Welt, to publilh weekly the plays performed, is well de serving public patronage, and the Ameri can public seldom withold that patronage from merit. (From the American Minerva.) The contents of an Old Marts Mtmcran- dum Book. Negligence sometimes fuffers a child to grow up left-handed. But why are we all to be only right-handed ? The right hand was made stronger and more convenient by habit, not by our Creator. The wisest of God'a creatures fuffer habit, when they have two arms, to confine them almost to tally to the use of one. Let us copy the ikilful fencing mailer, and teach our chil dren the use of both arms indifcnminately. Cases may be put, in which the left arm, which now fetrat to be fixed to the body only for the fake of uniformity, may save the wearer's life. Every man in the moment of deep thought is addicted to some particular ac tion. Swift used to roll up a flip of paper with his flnger and thumb. Many people have eontra&ed habits of this fort which are ungraceful, some, even habits of inde- cency. Is your child a daughter ? Do not chris ten her from novels and romances. Louii'a and Clementina may betray ber into situa tions which Elizabeth and Maiy never dreamt of. Shenftone thank'd God hisname was liable to no pun. Let an old man be thankful he did not give his daughter a name which sentimental writers would pre fer to weave into a novel, or to " hitch in a yhyme." [Whole No. 485.] For the Gazßtte of the United Status, AS the public mind has been for some time past considerably agitated re fp edging Theatrical exhibitions, and at these writers in favor of fprrls Item to avail themselves of the authority of a few Clergymen, who refufed to sign the address and petition lately presented the Senate' and lioufe of Representatives of the (late of Pennsylva nia, relative to the pafilng of a Law a gain ft vice and immorality ; you are particularly requeftedto republifli in your Paper' from a correa copy the said petition, with the considerations subjoined in favor of the fame. This rcqueft you certainly will not refufe, as the fubferibing Clergymen have been moil: wantonly abul'cd, in some of the Philadelphia Newspapers, by a set of ano nymous writers, who substitute railing for reafotiihg ; these Clergymen, to their ho nor be it spoken, though " reviled, revile not again; though they fufFer, they threat en not; but commit themselves to Hliri that judgeth righteously" how fer the non-fulfcribers have patterned after the great founder of our holy religion, who " left us an example, that we should fol low his steps" mutt be left not with the irreligious and prtfave, but with the men of true piety to determine. 4 Profejfor of Chrifiianity* Jan. 9, 1794. To the Senate and House bf Representatives of the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania. THE clergy of various denominations, in the city of Philadelphia, whose names are underwritten, observing, with much pleasure, that an existing law of this iiutc for the fupprefiion of vice and immorali ty, is by the recommendation of the exe-* cutive, to become the fubjeft g£ legiflativc revision ; and imprefied with a sense of duty, which we conceive is incumbent on us, both as ministers of the gospel, and as members of civil society, refpe£fully re quest the attention of the legislature to the following rcprefentation and petr tion. We represent, that the legislative in terposition is, in ourapprehenfion, peculi arly necelTary to make some irlTtci ual prO viiion for the orderly and religious obser vance of the Lord's day ; for the preven tion and punishment of the profanation of the name of God, and every species of impious imprecation ; for regulating and leflening the number of houses where intoxicating liquors are fold and used, for the fuppreflion of all places of gaming aad lewd resort; and for the enacting of % law to prevent theatrical exhibitions of e very fort. We do accordingly, mod ear* neftly petition and request, that in fram ing an ast against vice and immorality ,vcti would regard, with peculiar attention, these important objects, ft) as to prevent the numerous injuries to which our citi 7.ens are thereby exposed, in their morals, their health, their property, and their general happineis. We conceive that the solemn Intima tions of divine Providence, in the late dif tre fling calamity which has been experien ced in this city, urge upon (is, in the mcft forcible manner, the duty of reforming every thing which may be offenfive to the Supreme Governor of the univerle, and of doing every thing which may impress on the public mind, a regard to his go vernment, his providence, his kvvj, end his ordinances. The fubje&s to which we have request ed the attention of the legiflaturc aie cf confefled importance; they arc, moreover fubjefts which are not I'o liable to contro versy, orcollifion of opinion, as to render U9 deiirou9 of entering into any detail <.f argument in support of our petition ; ex cepting only the part which relates to the atrical exhibitions. On th«i w; arc aware that a difference of fentimcnt cxifts. Some coiilidcrat'or.j are, therefore, fuhjoined, relative to this fubjict, to which the candid sttertion of the legiilature is refpe&fully lolicited. R.
