Phl had in an early stage expressed his disapprobati6n[of if, which di.iapprobatiorr was grounded on his conviction of its insufficiency. Still, however, when it was proposed-last Session to repeal the Bill, he had voted~against.thatrepeal; not intending by that vote to preclude hinteelf from any subsequent repeal that might lie proposed, hut merely to suspend that repeal until thefurthir operation of the Bill was ascertained, pi confessed'that his expeclatiOns had been veryvinucSi raised by'what had been stated by the Right Hon. Secretary fpr the War Defiart-fneiit.f whP-had said a great deil'of; the^i of the army, of the niarkoer in v/hich the.batrslion� ' havi been clubbed, as he termed it, and-of his con. vision that armies alone decided the fall of nations.' All thejie declarations had led him to look forsoine-I* thing more than that Right Hon. Geiitleman had brought forwardk". He did not think that the inducements which he held put to ari'augmentation of' the regular force were suiHcierttly powerful, they were not equal (even numerically speakit^g) to the bounty that he proposed to take aw�y ; he did hot see in his measures a resource adequiiis to the existing ntces, sity, he suvncd he had beendwappoititedi hebcbeved i;&�t a considerable part of the Right Hon. Gentte-mari's pfan was imprafticable i he had omitted to do any thing to render the military profession more atr-traflive, either to the men or to the officers. On this head he (Mr. J.) recom.liended a pursuance of the system adopted, with regard to the navy-to the encrease of Serjeants and corporals.; to tlx: officers, the certainty, � a certainty which attendjd every other military system in Europe, of being promoted on the achievement of any gallant enterprize. He did tiot mean to advice such a fundamental alteration in our military sy-steni, as that merit alon&should obtain proatation'{ what he Wished for was, that when an officer had so eminently dtitJnguished himself, a^ to be mentioned in the General Orders, that he should gain one step. The advantage of such a system' miglit be seen in hlstory,and xvas, at this mo. inent, strongly evinced in the French military service, and our o^vn Marine. He could not think that the adoption of such a system could injure the.feelings of a .sipgleindividual, while it wouldbeextensiveiy serviceable to the country. With regard to the means proposed bv tiie Right Honourable Gftitleman, for carrying his plan of an increase of the regular force Into execution, he ihought that they wanted that courage, that energy, that decision which might reasonably be expected from a strong Government. This seemed to be clearly shewn, to the hesitation to talce from'the^ Militia that aid which would be necessary to cariy the military establishment of the country to the desirable point. For his part, he would recommend that enlistment from the Militia" into the line ihould be encouraged ^aS far as it could-'be carried, and that then the deficiency in the iyjj-litifshouL'l be immediately supplied hy l^allot.- A diminution of the Mjlitia took jplace in 1799; but was any evil the lesult ? Last year t^.,000 men were drawn from the Militia. Was the militia sys. tea^ impaired .'Were the Militia Officers disgusted ? To him this appeared the only ctrettive means of cairying our regular army to the. amount whicli was wished for, namely .200,000 men. If the uuuiber atwhioh it should be deemed eligible to fix themi!t. tia was 40,000, and the plan lie suggested should reduce it to, then the t^llot oughtinstantiy to supply the deficiency, and in tl�e-present crisis when every one was eager to ..shew Ids aitschment to the country, there couidbefiodoulit that such a mca- 1 sure' wpjild be received with cordiiillty. This plan. would likewise prevent the ptevaiiing evil custom into which parisiICS had fallen, of paying half the fitie for perjions who were unwilling to serve, and Linton aua i!;jmi�ncv>n?w�r�>TM ,IWay,u,'|t twQ, VI, anitmnc 1 'L^tienV' Att%nib�l MeaSrs.
