sl^p6 and 6liip«V crews. Aithe block-
a(Ong system has been found in a great
measuie inefifectual, and is, besides, at-
tended with much damage, loss, and
jiicon?enience to the navy, it will, it is
understood, be discontinued in future,
at least, to a certain extent. Falmouth,
as being situated at the very entrance
of the English channel, will form the
advanced guard, as it were, of our naval
positions. It is not equally certain,
whether our present rulers have really
intended to form a dock-yaid and per-
manent naval arsenal at P'almouth. —
There are, however, xiiany strong and
obvious reasons for ^upposin^ tliat this
great and beneficial measure may ulti-
mately take place. There is more than
one spot in this capacious and truly-
excellent harbour, where a dock-yard
may be formed of any extent ; the cross
cliannel and Carrick road afford suffi-
cient scope and'dqith of water, without
dredging up one barge-load of the bot-
tom, for more than twenty sail of our
heaviest ships, where they may swing
in safety, at their own cables, while,
their attendant frigates, &c. would find
ample accommodation in other parts of
the harbour, and this anchorage might
he enlarge to any extent, by scooping
out the banks that bound the channels.
—And, besides, the numerous winding
creeks of this great harbour, which,
tracing the circuit of its shores^ has
been estimated at not less than one
hundred miles in circumference, afford
loom and depth of waler for any num-
ber of ships to lie in ordinar\', with-
out being* straitened for room. —
Our naval establishment has increased
80 much of late years, that another port
and dock-vard in the channel is become
indispensably necessary, and no harbour
in the channel can be put in competition
with that of Falmouth. The present
dock-yards are, and indeed have long
been, uiiequalto their puq)Oses in time
of war : this is particularly the case at
Plymouth, where it has Wen found ne-
cessary to enlaige the Hamoaze, by
icoopmg out the mud near the town of
Soltash, &c. They are, also, too con-
tracted for even the ordinary of the
nav>', in time of peace. In the mean
time, no doubt is entertained that a
part of our fleets, especially if the war
continue, will rendezvous there next

have enhanced the blessing of longer life

express it, *' it is to be, wished most
anxiously that the benefits of intorma-

vite new subscribers, ** that the institu-
tion may have all tne advantages of which '
it is capable, from the combined aids of
a small annual contribution, and of a

give it the happier effect."
