A message fiotn the Lordi here announced their Lordships' assent to several bills.

After a few general observations QO iu impartaoce, the hoa. gentleman proceedi>d to state that he had be^n deterned from bringing it sooner before tbe honse ia consequence of the pressure of other bu�inees. ^\ th^t ko should now ask, would be for a resolution of the l)ou�c to Inquire into the subject next session, ai\d for certain Tt>turus to affurd the iafqrmatiou wliich would then become oecnssary. It was generally admitted tlvat there was no express law to jufUfy impressment. It was founded entirely upon tbe practice of the qrowB.

He should, however, class what he had to sjiy under the two heads, impressnieai and discipline.   Upou ibe iirst the hon. seconder bad really scarcely kfl him any thing to say, for be had given it as hiiopinion that the navy could not do without It ; and if no good were to be derived from acceding t.� the motion they bad really better not go into any inquiry to excite hopes which they-were satwfied they could not realist^. - (Hear.; He was sure he spoke his own sentiments and that of every i^vol officer in the house when be said tliat he had much ratiier uau the ships of war without impresament-(Hear.)-But, with this feeling, after the best sttention, he had been ai>le to give the  question he must say that it  was his opinion that ther could not do away with what he must call this law, with ssfoty to the country.   When the hoa.

There was one clear reason why U ^outd not he abolished-it wts impossible that there should at the same time be enough of inea to man tbe navy and the merchant service,   l.t was out of aU reason that more men tliaa were wanted should lie afloat; and un-lesa they were to keep the men that wuuld l>e required iu time of peace ready for a war, they could not do without impressment-What was the state of this country when a war broke outThe sens were covered with onr nierchantmcn ; the ports, no thanks to the hon.
