In the SENATE, By or.fler of the Senate, F£LIX WARLfcY, Cleik, A N D PHILADELPHIA, Feb. 24. From a Correfpondcnt. A party leader pays dearly for his ho nors,; he must often speak one way and look another—he must sometimes be silent when he wilhes t# speak, and sometimes speak when he wishes to be silent. He has a world of trouble to keep things right ; while he is giving a lelfon to one pupil, another runs restive ; while he is laboring to keep A. in the right road, B. runs astray —the life of a driver of hungry pigs or flupid turkics is more easy. He is obliged to have his scouts and his rangers to recon noitre ; if tliey get knocked on the head, he must retreat j if they make an imprefli on he must be ready to fnpport them ; if they hazard too milch, or mismanage, it is understood that he is at liberty to aban don them and join the enemy, because it is of consequence that he (hould not com mit himfelf. His influence would be im paired, if he were rashly to engage and be defeated ; that business is therefore aflign ed to the forlorn hope—they are suppos ed to have nothing to lose, and the honor of being the instruments is a fufficient com pensation ; a little well applied flattery from the leader amply rewards their labors. If he has a point to carry which is doubt ful, and the failure of which may derogate from his fame, an underling is employed to feel the ground ; he hangs aloof till he fees how it takes, but whispers assistance and plays the Prompter—at firft gives it a fide wind puff, without committing him fe/f —if that succeeds, he then likes the idea and thinks under modifications it may do, but still flieltere himfelf under a pro-vifo, which may bring him fafcly off the field, if neoeflary. He must pay a compliment to young hands, approve their sentiments and applaud their talents. Flattery is an irrefiftable charm : He must now and then support absurdities to keep his friends in good humor, and oppose what he thinks right, to disappoint and weaken his adver saries. Such are the toils of a Party Leader. For the Gazette of the United States. Mr. Fenno, I was much pained at a piece in your paper of last evening, signed Crilo. The dilputes refpe&ing the Theatre, I fup poftd to have been at an end long since; and little did I think that any of dis ciples of Fanat'uifm would have again made their appearance to rouse into adlion the dormant principles of fuperjlitious bigotry and ignorance. But it seems I was mistak en, for the quiet and peaceable principles of the oppofers to Theatrical representations could not endure the mortify ingrefletlion of being defeated in theiraims by thepowerful arguments of Reason andT*UTH without making an expiring effort to bring forth the worst of passions lurking in the hu man heart to aid their miserable cause; and if poflible induce the molt ignorant and uninformed part of the community to fide with them, though evidently and un deniably against their own interest. Finding that the legislature were deter mined to ast as the representatives of a free people ever ought to do, that is NOT to pass an ast violating and infringing upon the laws and conjlitution of the Jlate and the unalienable rights of its citizens, the <wur .thy Crito has come forward to found the trumpet'of alarm anddifmay to the igno rance, the paflions, and the prejudices of mankind, and in cafe his juj! and rea sonable desires are not complied with, he intimates and threatens to pour forth all the dreadful vengeance of his mofl terrible ■wrath! !—which must be terrible indeed ! But this amiable mejfenger of peace in forms ut that " the devotees of Comus triumph in the victory which they have obtained," that they are " inflating the feelings of their mourning fellow-citizens." A rare discovery truly, and worthy of its author !—lf by the • devotees of Conuis' [Whole No. 521.] he means the friends of the Theatre and such as are willing to amuse tliemfelves in innocent recreation, I mult beg leave to all< him to point out one single circum stance wherein they have acted in this man ncr* Has any insulting or triumphant language or publications been ufcd or made in any refpeft since the dispute was thought to have been terminated—-No But it seems some person has had the 'wfa lent pnfumbtioaXo dare to give a chara&er of the performers. Here is " insulting the feelings of the citizens with a vengeance—Wiio could have thought that any person would have had the brazen faced impudcnce to fay whether the pei fonjiere acted well or ill 1 Tho' perhaps the good Crito would have no objection to having his wondrous Vo lenti celebrated in all the newspapers piib lifhed on the continent. This excellent defenderof morality hasdif fered in hi* mode of attack from some of his colleagues, and molt violently fell foul of " the wealthier citizens" as'the encoura gers of these amusements, whom he af iures have all provided a retreat againfl " next fummei," when he declares (be yond all doubt from intuitive knowledge cr infpirat'wn, or both,) that the yellow-'ferer will again spread its deftrudive ravages through our oity, and this he can with jus tice aocufe them of as an attrocious crime, since the faithful followers and firm belie vers of his party remained to a man firm at their pejis during that trying scene last year ; and so great was their confidence in their own virtues, merits ami doSrims, that not a Jingle one was known to fly to the country for protection andfecurity from the contagion. But to the point, Crito fays it is the "-wealthy" who are advo cates for the Theatre. A great change this, for it is not many months linpe some of his party aflerted that the poor, the lower, and the more infignificant classes only were its friends, and that there was scarce ly a wealthy or refpeaable person to be found on that fide of the qutrftion. But Confijlency, is a quality every person is not born to inherit. I have not a doubt that those persons who are willing to amuse themfclvei at the Theatre, have felt and do feel as sensi bly and warmly for the late dreadful cala mity as any other person whatever, be they who they may.—But at the fame time are not quite willing to place unlimi ted confidence in the alTertiont of such immaculatcgeniufes as Crito, who take the people for fools or madmen, to think they can place the lead reliance on them, wheu they pompously aflert with as much aflurance as if they were special agents of the Supreme Being, that our late cala mity was owing to the ereaion of a The atre, and that the continuance of drama tic representations will inevitably bring it on us again. I would also observe, that while the citizens pursue their amufemenU in an orderly peaceable manner, and with decency, (which cannot be denied, has been remarkably so in the cafe of the Theatre, by any person who has the least regard for truth) no dogmatical, a (Turning di&ator has any business or right to in terfere with them ; and if Crito or any of his friends fllould " kindle a fiame" to destroy our rights of conscience or impair our constitution, he and they may be made forelv to rue the day that their itch for intermedling with the concerns of others, set their plodding heads and hands at work, to subvert and destroy the right of thinking in every person but themselves.
