OBSERVER No. XVI.
The Theatre was last evening uncommon'
ly crowded, and with a brilliant audience.
The Observer was much gratified that Mr'.
Fennel's benefit waS lb properly noticed : his
powers were exerted with his usual propriety
in the charter of Count Ribemont; it is
the iincere wish of the Observer, that a man
of Mr. Fennel's character for virtue and abi
lities both natural and acquired, may neves
want the patronage of the public, of which
he received fd flattering a testimonial last
Mrs. Oldmixon, again arretted the atten
tion of the audience, and exceeded the very
high expectation:, which had been entertain
ed of her as a Singer and an ACtreis: The
acquisition of Mrs. Olclmlxon, is a Angular
felicity to the Managers Of the New-Thea
tre, and is a great addition to the Company
of Performers, unquestionably an excellent
one before Hie joined them.
The pieces chosen were the Surrender of v
Calais, and a Peep into the Isfcraglio; the
d fpofitions of characters in those uncom
monly meritorious pieces, has done great ho
nor to the difcernmeut of the Managers. Mr.
Mofeton will exrufe the Observer for hinting
to him, the pain which his friends fe.-l at his
so frequently wanting aid from the Promp
Mrs. Marjhall, for a perfeCl simplicity,
and ease in a&ion, for a compleat adoption
: «i' the character file performs, has never ex
ceeded her exhibition of last evening.
In the after-piece, Mrs. Francis, Mrs. Old
mixo , Mils Broadburjl, formed a trio, that
gave the Observer many, not to fay full ideat
of perfection : He asks the Audience if they
could refrain from such ideas when they
saw and heard them ? Was there a heart
which did not expand with better sentiments
and more benevolence from attending the
perform nee last evening ? If there was one,
the Observer recommends a trial of This
Evening, at the Benefit of Mr. Chalmers,
which may poilibly prove a mutual benefit.
The entertainm-nt seleCted for this even
ing, is of the Left kind.
Tuesday 21ft May.
ALEXANDRIA, May 13.
Copy °f a letter from a gentleman in Phila
delphia, to his friend in this town.
As to our navigation and commerce, we
can certainly defend it only in one of two
ways, either by maintaining a friendly cor
respondence with the maritime powers, or by
a powerful navy of our own.
As to the firft mode, at this time Great
Britain is mistress of the ocean. The prin
cipal maritime nations, except France, are
her allies. The court is holtile to us—there
fore disposed to deitroy our navigation and
controui our commerce. It can be controll
ed only by the friendly temper of th? Bri
tilh people towards us. Our only chan:e, in
this way of defending these important inter
ests at this time, is to cultivate their friend-
As to the second mode, a powerful navy—
the expense would be prodigious, the effica
cy uncertain. If however we do not defend
our navigation in one way or the other, in a
verv fliort time we Ihali not have a lh,p ou
the ocean. And indeed if we cannot defend
our navigation without a naval force ade- ,
quate to the objeCt, we ought to encounter
the expense of such an armament. I cannot
pretend to fay what naval force would be
adequate to this objeCt. A force less than
equal to tei} Ihips of the line, and as many
\ftcut frigates, would probably be very inade
ouate. I am, however, convinced that the
appearance of such a fleet always at our
command, could not fail to have a consider
able effect on foreign nations, especially if
the former jealoufits and rivaifhips thoiiid be
restored among the'powers of Europe—And
when I refleCt how much within ou'r reach
are the rich Britifii Weft-Indies, I am inclin
ed to think that even preparations for such
a force,fuch as fortifyinggjthe proper port*
building arlenals aud docks, and laying in
plentiful supplies of naval It ores, might in
cline that government, more than any o
ther circumstance, to cultivate our friend
fliip. It is not probable that such a force
could be built and equipped for less than,
fix millions of dollars 5 nor when in aitu«
