Good now, sit down, and tell me, he that knows,
Why this same strict and most observant watch
So nightly toils the subject of the land,
And why such daily cast of brazen cannon,
And foreign mart for implements of war;
Why such impress of shipwrights, whose sore task
Does not divide the Sunday from the week;
What might be toward, that this sweaty haste
Doth make the night joint-labourer with the day:
Who is't that can inform me?

So what exactly are you questioning from this?

During this passage, Marcellus is questioning what the saw and what happened during that time. He wants to know what is bothering Horatio since he can tell Horatio is nervous about something. He also wants to know why the observant and strict watch usually in Denmark is kept on the low at the moment.
