'' ... The House agreed to a conference presently in the Painted, Chamber, of which tlie MesseNgeis from the Commons being called in, were informed. A Committee was appointed to manage t he conference. Mr. Alexander, Mf. Chewte, Mr. Byng, Mr. Graham, Mr, Jditdrell, Sir Martin Folkes.and several other Members ufthe.i-louse of Commons brought up the Chelsea Allow, ance Bill, the Irish Malt Duty Bill, and several Private �Bills,..- The House being informed that the Comrhons waited the conference in the Painted Chamber, the Committee appointed to Manage ir, consisting of the' Duke.of Norfolk, liatls ot jiladnor and Romney, Lord Viscount Fulinouth, the Bishop of St; Asaph, Lords Holland, Keith, Di'ndas.EJIenboroug i and Laudeidaie, went loirh to the Painted Ch:>mber. Shortly afterwards they-retufned ; when the Duke of Norfolk reported that the Comm^.'ns had communicated to them a certain T former measures were done away and destroyed, but where were the substitutes ? He professed the highest respeft for the Noble Lord at the head of his Majesty's affairs, for his ability, his integrity, and his anxious desire to serve his coun-tryw For the head of the Adtninistration he had the highest respei.^, but he did not like the stern of it; he did not like the principles of the stern; he Teared their operation. With: retpe^t to the, Ineasure which wasinore immediately the subjedi of deliberation in the Committee, wondetful e'ffefls, �it had been predii.'leil, would be "produced by its operation. Jt had been said in other places, that the condition of the army 'would be improved, its strength increased, that bounties would decrease, and desertions be diminished. He did not believe that any such behefits woitld result from the iiieasure. How was it possible, that under the proposed regulations relative to limited service, the artify could be kept up ? Taking the wh^le number of the army air two hundred thousand men, en'-listed.for limited service, as proposed, at the end of se V en y ea rs, and e very y ca r at ter ward s a se yen th pa ri of that number must be discharged, aniouniii^ to about jsSiboo men; this added to the waste of,men in the course of a year, amounting to about 12,0,00, would make up the number of 40iOOO men to bd re. cruit'cd every year, and"how was it possible to raise sijch a number of! this country in the course of one year ? he was thoroughly convinced that the army could nut be kept up in that .manner withoac having , recourse to a military tionsurip.-tion, or some compulsory measure ^of that descrip. tion. . Such a measure as that now proposed would, bchiid�j give lise to a �};ite(a of cc^iinaul sectoit. rntcs 5� 6ng, rfrunkehncss and caiiyas, for thepurppseof iiidik?. ihg men whose terms were near expiring to enlise again. He Begged pardon for trespassiog sa lon^ upon the Committee, and ipreventing the ^ Noble Master General of the Ordnance from rrsihg,. whii he was sure would oppose this measure, And would tell their Lordships that by the effect of this tnea. sure the artillery would be destroyed, who would tell tiiein'that men Vi that, corps, froot the experience they gained^^ the course of seven years of service, became expert engineers, andwere capable of obtaining great jemoliiment in various ways, and who would not therefore stay a moment l6nger tlian the exptration,,of the first term of service. That No� ble Lord would therefore doubtless tell \ht 'Cora- . mittee that under the operation of such a lucasure the artillery coqld not be kept up. What likewise would be efFeftcpoh our Colonial service? V/as he to understand tliat in the West Indies, after.paying 70I. or 80I. for slaves to form black rSgi^i^nts", that those persons after thdr terms tif service had expired, were to bfe tjirown loose upon society, and under the measure now proposed', his Majesty would not have ifce jxiwer. to retain them ? How, also, would it afifi^^our troops sent out to our Colonies? It woura''^ iiitpossible.forthe Comman.lcrs to asccrtiinvvith any prcGisionj the ., number of men it would be necessary continually td replace; they might send fur a nu.Tlier of mert instead of those whose tcrmi' v/eti near expiring, whilst in the irieah time those whose terms of service wtre longer, might be carried oW by disease. Regiments also, whose term of oervics were near expiring, would hesitate'to goto a disiaat clime ont any eiiiergency. Ancthet objetflion also arose fronii the eiTiA which such a me.nsuri would have upon the ar;ny as slrtidy coi-stiturcd. Men Whose servicts was for life, could scarcely see without jenlotisy others by their side whqsc tcr:(is of service \vere continually expiring, and who uere thlis enabled to returti; to their families. Thcise objedions pressed forcibly on his mir.d, ?nJ operated dir'celly , agaitist this measure, which had been rc jectet^ after mature delibsratipn. by .his Ri^ht Hon..Friend deceased, who was then at.iiie licad of AJrainistration, . and he trusted the modern Alexar.ders would pay ionie respect to the plans of Pluiip. fte concluded by moving to leave out all the words of the oath which contained the iiraitation of. service. Earl SPENCER mlintalned, that men' wouIJbi: more willing to engage fsr a liniiced time than for life. There wa's riotiiing in _the Bill before"' the Committee to preclude men frora engaging for life ; as when a man had cotiipleted liis first period of service, he might re-engage for a second term. The limitation of the penod of .service, he wa^ per.sur.dcd, would be found to promote r'^^cruicing. Parents ? friends would not be !:g liuich di.nbsed to^exert their influence over their children, or -rtl.jti-.'es to prevent them Iroin enlisjii^g, when tl:ey knew that ihs p'jrii d of thiir service was limiied to se-ven. year's only. It would also, he contended, have the effeft 0'reducing the bouticies; for it '-vas natur.1l thaca man should e.tiiist for a less sum for s.-ven years, than for liis V.'hol? life.---As to desertion, \\: co.'.ild not per-.q.^iyc'ihar the Bill held out any great -ndiicement to 'increase that dishonour.-.bie pra-d":ice. On the "contrary, it Was his opinion, men wou!^ not he so likely to desert, when they were certain of losing all the advantage's held out to them by Eerving.ihe stipular-ed periods. The measure had been tried before, and ho inconvenience whstever rcsoiied from it. It was tried in 1756, when men were enlisted f'^r five years, and in the course of the hte American war, when they were enlisted for three. The plan was first suggested, at least first mentioned, to l^im by a person (Mr. Pitt), to whom he coiild never allude without the highest res-^ect and admiration. He knew that great man once thought favourably of enlistment ior limited'.pericds. Why he had afterwards changed hh hiind, if he did change it, he knew net. Lords Westmorland and Spe.vcer severally ex4 plained. ' Lord BORING DON argued against the Clause, on the ground of its being unnecessary, and not called for by the state of the Ar.ny. At any rate, he thought that the system of limited service should have been first tried on a limited scale, in order to ascertain whethetor not it possessed those advantage* that had been ascribed to it. He contended that it would protluce a relaxation of military discipline, and that, when the period of service was about to expire, a kind of canvass would take place betweea the Officer and soldier, which would, degrade the former, and prove highly pernicious to the discipline: of the Army. , Lord CAERNARVON supported the Bill, andL contanded, that were the limitation of service confined to the war, as haa been proposed by some. Noble Lords, the country at the return of peace would be placed in the most defenceless situation. The Duke of MONTROSE opposetl t>.e clause, as limiting the exercise of the Royjil prerogati.e. He conceived that it would operate as a bounty to induce' tncn to leave the regiment to which they belonged, hX the expiration of their term of service, sitKC, by 3oing so, they might ue entitled to as large a bounty as they had at first received, ,by entering into another rcgitnent. He conter,*ded, that, in the present state of society," a better description, of men would nor, in consequence of limiied service, be induc:ed to enter the army. The Duke of GLOUCESTER warmly sujjponed ihe-Measitre. 'Many Officers of eminence-and repu-Ution with whotti-he had conversed, in those coun-, tries in which he had travelled, hsd given their opi. n'ons decidedly in favour of limited service, which they considered as produiflive of the most beneficial-consequ'chces to an army. He was also decidedly of the sain: opinion, �nd he considered suc{t 2. mode of ;
