Mr. WHITBREAJ3 rasa fo retire a ipotion wbiclx he hatl proposed, yei^terday, but which he was tlien indut^tl to ;defer. at the request of the Noble Lord oppostteio Mm (Castle.r(^agh). It was for a-return ofthe names of 9li (he Officers aUacli> d tfae Poreigtt Corps raistid under Culanel thtiir present state in his MajVsty's.service. It did not s(rik�,htin that Ihere could be any objection lo comply with the raolion. The whole of those Officers were known lo be Roman Catholics: he believed there were many of them who from their cnnttuct had not proved themselves to be men of tlie mdst unexci^-ptionable character, aitho' there weio many others whose conduct was certainly irreproachable. It was, however, pretty extraor. dinary, that in 1791, when the letters of service wens i-^sued to French Officers to enlist French soldiers from a milifaiy prison into his Majesty's service, a positive refusal was given by the Government fo the lale Duke of Bedford's request for a commission to command his own armed tenantry in the tiefence of his own country, under an apprehension that to trust that Nobleman with the command of his armed tenantry, would have bi^^en dangerous to the State. The Hon. Member concliitled by moving for the return above stated. Lord CASTLKllKAGII said, that he only re-questt-d the Hon. Member yesterday to postpone his motion, in order to have an oppnrlLinity of consulting with others, hdw far it might be advise-aMe to grant the return. Upon the fullest consideration, however, it was thought that the naim-s of those Officers, and their present situations in the service, could not be communicated without exposing them to great hazard and injury at sume future lime; and, upon this account only, he must resist the motion. Mr. WHI'IBRICADl said, that the names of those Officers were by no means secret; they were inserted in an authentic list of the army, published monthly, and must be known to every body desirous of learning their names. Therefore, he must consider the reason assigned by the Noble Lord as a mere subterfuge for withholding the do-cument. He could not, however, avoid remarking again, that while his Majesty's Government had thought fit to refuse the late Duke of Bedford a Commission for the command of his own tenantry in the defence of his native land, as too lidngefous a confivlenct; to repose in a Noble man who differed from them in politics, and also tovdnse to Lord Petre a commission for the command of 400 of his owtr tenantry, armed and clothed at his own expence, for the like purpose, upon no other pretence than that of his being a Roman Catholic ; still they felt no hesitation in granting to Colonel Charmiily, a Frenchman, an utter stangcr, and a Roman Catholic, letters of serrice to recruit French soldiers, at the door of a military prison, f'�r his Majesty's service, and at a bounty of 16 guineas per man: atiil afterwards, when they deemt'd it expedient to disbanrf this regiment, to turn them loose upon the public. One of tiie motions be made iipnn a former night was for an Account of the money advanct;d to Colonel Charmiily, bnt to this no proper return was made. He mii-t thirt'-fore pre-s the present moti3u,and take the sense of Che H9us upon it. Theqi*estiou was immediately put, and tlie House divided. Aves, CP. Noe?, 51- Mr. BABINGTON-moved, that there he laid before the House Copies of the Abstrait of the Returns nlalive tn the R- would not wish to postpone the iiudgct tn this account. By law, these accounts were ly delivered by the 25ih of March in every year, be-before which time it was impossible, on account of thcmnltiplrcity of pajiers on the table, to jirepare j ^htjm; and it was not lill lately that the Budget was-opened the I^thof May.  This ust?d to,take, place before Christmas, a,nd it woiiid always* be utterly impossible to get the accetiD^ priutcd before the aliening, of the Badget. , Sir JOHN NEWPORT doubted this impossibility, since Irish accounts could, be alsrays. ready; It was �f do consequence to Jay them before the House jfihey were taken away for so long a time to be prkitud; iinti he jthought that either xhvf shoulii not be lafcen away for tbis parpose, or that dupllcati;8 of, them;shou!tLbe pro>tdej}. The SPEAKER inforrged the Hod. Member, that upon a Vote of the House tiuplicatcs wrre'al.-ways laid upon the table;. ,and as to the length of time lost In printitig, the Hon. Member wnold recollect that of all printing, figure printing was the most tedipMS and intricate. I ..JheiCEIANCELLOR of the EXCHEQUER asked if the only advantage to be derived from Iny-ing these Annual Accounts on the table, was theic consideration on this parlicular day ? . Mr. ROSE l^P^o testimony to the difficulty of btti;tfi_lhe Accounts rtady even by-the 25th of ed, to look at thise Account.'!, and was inftirmeJ that they were gone to the Prinlei's, and iliat fiS cotild not see thcin.. DupIiciCcs nf the Ir�h Accounts, he knew, had not been laid upon the Table, aud tliat led him lo suppose, that lh� same was then the case wiih respect to the Accjun's of this Country. . , The Accounts of the proiluce of llio War.Tax Was then referred to the Committee; when tl;e House having resolved itself into ihi: Commiitee Mr. Whartov in the Chair, The CHANCELLOR of the EXCIHCQUEli rose, pursusot to notice, to siii'mit to tlie Cctrn:;iir. tee a siatemcct of tlic VVays aiftl Means of the yar.
