and not try to improvise a great naval power in nine months, which he failed to build up, with all We tern and Southern Europe at his command, in nine years. Let us no longer imitate the "prodigious energy with which Napoleon pushed his naval preparations long after the battle of Trafalgar had destroyed the French marine," (as the editor informs us,) for already our "prodigious energies" in the same line have brought about nothing but disaster. Either we or the learned editor are right. If Bonaparte was wise, as we suppose, and therefore did not attempt to create a navy all of a sudden, let us profit by his wisdom, and follow his example. If he were weak, as the editor assumes, and under took an absurd, chimerical, and hopeless project, let us take warning from his misspent "prodigious energies" and signal failure, and avoid the perpetration of a like folly. We again thank the editor for his curious and valuable historical researches and citations. Geo. Fitzhugh.
