Mr. Secretary WINDH.^M thought it was too tnuch tQ ask of hifW, what was the "tlmount of bounty that woitVd be given- at a future period, the circumsrances attending which It was iraposiiible to foresee. Mr. PERCIVAL said, that the Right Honourable Gentleman mistook the question of his Noble Friend. It was not .so much diroary to cdmpicte ;     ,     , . � , :,'.  �., ^ 1      .   J J       reduced Its quota to Qooo ineji, and all MS .�iio.Ia-.ture to vary them ia future.-This,' he 'trusted, would dp away the great alarm that had existed as .to any irrevocable cngngcnients of ihe State. Nothing , that w'as to be prtJposed \Vas irrevocable,^ but simply the faith pledgeil to the individiial,' who immediately entered the service. Every subsequent regulation was subjeft to the filteration which circumstances iiiigiu demand. In answer to jthc objeftions that had been made against this measure, he would.not (^issemble, that in this, ^s well as in everyfthing che, a hacrifK''e must be miide, some, thing inustbe giveiT up to gt;t a great d-al more,- It was not,,as had been stated by the Hon. Gentle-men opposite^ a wanton innovation ; an attempt to mend iha^l which was already well  a hazardous ex-perii�Cfi.t(| where _no alteration wa.�.iieccssaryi By ^ � adopting the measure, we 'certainly shotild put otir. sclvejund,er the necessity of parting with more thari we cpuld wish to part with. No one could deny, that tp part with soldiers in titne of war-^vas objec. tionablCj, tinless it was done in the hope of obtaiiiing. a greater accession of strength.

The same principle -regulated the acquivemtnt of wealth,;,rfnd a inati pbsseiiised of money might as' well be deterred front layingjOtjit considerable sums in the hrpe of obtaiti.j ing raoj* considerable teturns; Aff to the. tieccss'ty 01 � a ine�i!�"e for increasing our' military .strength^' did tKc Gei^'cmen opposite iriean seriously to^f^jj, thai Gpvjstntneht was not Vress�d by necessity, i^^^^^ jTennl'ies doubled. Hi. Army of Preserve Aft I'uid failed, because It certainly liad produc.d a nUtnoer of nien, althoirgh it fell far short of what was pr;)mi^cd by t!ic" atithors of it. 'it Jdid its utmost, ant it c;iiy:profcs..cd to be temporary." T'hen came the . Additional l^'orce Ad.'  11c would not say ofthc Gentlemen opposite, what they said of the present Administraiion| haaiclv, that ihey brouglit hirward a n.ew military measure, because out   of ofiice the.v had talked about it, and pledged themselves to do so ; and yet the pi-dge of th^>sc Gentlc-mnwasmucli stronger than any pledge which tlie present Ad;niv.i3:rjtioiV mt�;ht he supposed to have gi.cn ; for tlvc Administration' which immediately preceded that of which those Gentlemen lar.ticd a parr, were aduafiy removed tromofliee on the. ground of the inefficiency of their military nuMsuies.-"-- T'hey were, therelore bound, as it were, to bring forward something, and he mu-iC confess that wivat they did bring forward, was very like a so.Tiething that they were coiipelied to pro.hice. . 'I'he fa-f wa-;, thut thit Adiniiiistraiion felt them.selves obliged (having destroyed the iTjiiiiaiy plansnf their preje-ccjsor.i) cither to revert to thcordin-iry means of recruiting, which were a vowed ty ii^oufiicienr, or in., tro.liice some new and original mea.sare in its kind. Could It be .'^aiJ.thcn, they did ihrs wantonly, arid nor fro;ii    Itvas whimsical enough, that when an Hon. Geiitieman subsequenrly moved for -he continuance ot the Additional Force Act, he asserted, that ifitWas not continued we should.haVe nothing. Why, w!ku was there before? Something. T'here was the ordinary recruiting.   "Bui," said he,   "if; you tak^ away  tlvis new system'you leave noihing,"   No!.Did you not leave the old mode ?   The old mode, however, was evidently io-sulfieisnt ; and of thi-s new mode,, if he 'mi^ht venture to parsue it to,Its, grave, "".to "draw it from its-dread abode," he would repeat that it had completely tailed/.
