There were certainly inHuy thlng.sin the Ad.iitiDnal Force Aft which Were lialile to objection,hut these might be correcljd. Th" 'hea. sutes now: proposed held otit the promisj; of greater numbers of m n to the .service, but of a ie^s useful de.icription. Inconsequence of the syst-^m of in--listing men, first for limited, afrcrwiinls forg-.-nt-ral service, 2o,oo3 min of 37,000 r.iiseJ un'or the Artny of Reserve A>^, had entered into tlie line, an.l a still greater riiimlier wouUl luve entered, it' the standard csfablishL-d for the line had not prevented many of those rcin.iining in. the reserve Iwttaliohs from entering into it. He .had learned from the Officers lindcr him, tl'^at much greaf.-r numbers would have inlistcd if Govern;nent had been willing to take men of an inferior siz;. Ir was true that these men cost a dojhie bounty; bat who would hesitate at thit expencc if 20,000 a.-lditional trained men were to be had by it. Nothing cnuld be more lair than .to engage men ."tt first for lioiitcd servicer and then if they did not like a military lif?, to al-low them to return to the situation they would have left. He disapproved most' strongly of the idea of discharging men at the end of seven years in time of war. It was true seven Gen believed it' was tvotihj practice oi any Ons nation., t ' In the German dominions cl' his' Majesty it ua.s n :t, i the praClice ; ami he should be glad to know if the 13,030 Hanioveitans now in the service of this conn-try. Were npt engnged for life:?' He wovtjd wihh to know in what couniry the engagement for limited service >v'as really in usi-. It was not the pracliL-e in Austria-. InFrance thj conscripts were obliged to serve during tlie war; Otlver nations had facilities of gettirrg meivthat we had not. He believed every officer would agree vvith him, that it was easy to give to every man the iVegree of discipline necessary to enable him to go through field Trianccuvre-s^'Eut from the time" when these ideas had been set afloat, a general discontent prevailed in the army.. A disc>..:rge'in time of war would be highly dctriniental In a ry where trade arid jtranQladurcs were so flourishing, and wages so high. In such a country he allowed, � ihsr, at all times^h^^he artiy w:n..jua�m^?\t^>ul{)roach of the expkiltion of the period, the objeft was al-ways to be secure of tlw re.isngagement of the men in lime, and the Officers made sacrifices with this view. He. wished, more time had Iwcn given for the donsiJem^On of the measure. The Bill, which it was proposed to rcjidl, had procured vast numbers-on Ifinlied service, and as many almost as w. w,!}|clv wa�] not contained, though perhaps in stronger. lapjjBjfcge, iti the Bililhat was to be repealed; The. .-Hon..Gentleman concluded with intimating;anitttei^:.^_ lion'of moving, that the farther proeeedingmwy^haj adjourned J but hedid not makCthe^bHotiv - ^ ^ .

The Bill went on'a pli ' pibly wrong foiindation in giving imprtiperduticj to pari.h c^cer.':, whose chararier was partly ' civil arid partly religio-Js /� /iniGn that t!ie Aci in qjesriori'oiij;kt ' not to be sulFereJ to remain otie day unrepealci', why. did' they r-emain days an.i werks in. ullicc ' without prcp-.).sing any mea,sures to that effift - When at length the Hon. Secretary unfolded his views in a very able speech of four hours, it ap. peared ibat ail the advanta^s he prop'ased were in disfant projpeii^. Tlie Bi.l now before the Hoi;se required us to tread back the steps of our ancestors, and to make compulsory training a part of the liuv pf the country. . He had asked whether, in anv country, it was the custom to enlist lor term of years, and to this no satisfaij^firy answer had beeii � retui-ried.- If it should be.necesi.:rv to call forth any general exertion, (he did not mean the necessity ' arising fro.n invasion, but tiie common emergency aris-ing necessarily trom the com-nence-nent ota war, the proper season for decisive cfH'nsive operation), .what resource would now reoiain ? I.he only way in-which the force raised for limited service could be useful in this view, was by liberating the disposable force, and placing it entirely at the dispo- . Sal of the Government for offensive purposes.-- � With respect to the levy mais^', all the objeftion to it �fs, not only this general power ot calling out every one^ to whon the provisions of the Bill ap-. plied, but what was of more importancej that this  principle might be appliel arbitrarily. It was not the general powers of theprerogativc that werecalled in questioiijbut that the scleflion was not sufficiently guarded against the arbitray oppression of ipdin-duiuls. This consideration of the'principle had been applied in the levy e/t Masse Jiz^^ when its  influence had been mitigated  by the lot, by ah option of other RCtvice,with the jienalfy bf :� fine, and by oilier msdincaitons imier wHch thi?- . compulsion operates niore locally. Having'b^en thus � modi^ed,* It was.entorccd irt Its most lecae'nf"form.
