Bill, conformably t,o thii sujjgesitJons which might he made ill the Com.iuttce. Lord ELDt)N hoped that no misrepresentations should hold iiiin forth as an enemy to ti.e C4use ot In�4vcnt.Debtors, He believed tio i^iahcoulj morv sincerely feel for their srifferings than ;did. 'Iff: deed he often reflected how. dcsjifaWe' an-'^bbjfect, it rtJust be for a m;l�, \vho like- himself mJjis aible' to. retire, af-.dr tjie fbn^Tabo�rs.flnd expefienec of an active professiondllife,' to devote his remaining"  leisure to the formatioii of some system ttfrezitla-tion that might tend to itopr'ove all our laws, both those that regarded bankrupts in trade, and also those that affected debtor.'t in a state of insolvency.. The former, he would contend, were not irlOre oppressive and cruel than the latter; fiay, "the latter, in his mindj often exhibited the severest examples;~ Indeed it was much to be wished, that some generiyl rule cmiid be e.stablished,- by which the creditor and debtor might both be guided ; but it was a fal-ie hu. inanity that would separate the case of the (me froiii the other. He was convinced that ma.ny persons had'designedly got into prison of late, to avail them--selves of the present Eill, and Such intentions should be defeated. If any thing,could, be devi.?ed in- la. ^voax of such debtors, ilie Aft should be prospective, not retro�peflt�� ;:;�iRfld perhaps some measures ought to be t.'>ksn to scei>re the property whicih might ctiine co such debtors, for their creditors, by placing it in ihs hands of assignees. NSuch a work, hovvever, would in.volvc very exti-'usive and complicated! con., siderations; and if it was aittempted, he should be among the foremost to lend his humble endeavours to the execution of it. ' Lord IvlOlRA combated the arguments of the two Noble and Learned Lords. The Learned Lords hai>l dbjefied strongly to the frequency of .such Bills. Butthey were only frequerit in the absence and expectation of something whicli rnighl obviate their necessity, and the longer that was deferred; the greater would be the mass of difficulty and misery to" be re-mpvei^. When the Leartitd Lords thus argued against the frequency of sugh 'Bil|s, had they detcnnined in their own mind* how long a debtor should rerriain iii prison before he made a due, corhpensation for the injury heliad dotie-his creditor ? Were they ready to state that term, of cpnfinemetlt; if they were, ic would afford him some light respc^ing their no. lions on such matters. Bat here he could not but recolleft two cases, which he read sometime back in the newspaperii, where the shade between man. slaughter and itt'4rdcr"'.�ppeared' to him to be ?ligh;fj t.'nd nice to a port :exttaor3inary degree. Tin^;onc was the caie'bfj.a master who ha J. beat his �'sgrv.anrto !UJcha,degree, that .she expired ii^ a few Uouii afterwards. 'iTie other was the case ot a Serjeant, who Wounded a recruit"in the head .^.jr an attempt to cicnpe, of which wounds the recruit died in a very short time. Here hurlg the shade biiween murder �and manslaughter, and it was ot the m sr exrraor. dinary nicety; yet the Juries acquitted both of murder; nor would he say that the verdi"! vras un-juit; but the accused were sentenced toordy oneyear's imprisonment. In tlie case of creditors and debtors, let it be anxiously inquir^id where the (r.uudu'tfnt intention exists, find k-c those be jvinislitd who have acted fraudulently ; but let not the inn'.iceni and un-ibriunate dfbcf'r, be confounde;! with the guilty : to do it, would be a ,most shaineful mockery of jus. lice. When he first undertook this busin..'8s, and when he now coii'.inufd to support itj^he was actuated by an great a solicitude tor the creditor as for the dc'otor. He was nof influenced by any i'alse liu. manity, as insinuated by a Noble Lord ; tot if he louked ro the case of the one vyithciit attending to that of the other, he should have acted not only not huina;..:ly, but dishonestly. 'l"he question was then put that the Bill be coit-mittedj on y/hich a divi.^ion took place. Contenis,' II-Non Contents, 5--Majority in favour-of the Bill, 6. When strangers were rea:'mitred, we found the House in a Committee on the Bill.

VmCEKT. Mr. JpFFERY Wse; in fu.ftOanct of his noficej "to call, the attention of the House to the piaperson the table relative to the -n-iiral dejj^ftment, and to bring forward and substantjatt hij charges against Earl Sti Vincent, for culpable negkftandmi5condu('.t during the time that lie had bent' at tbehcadof the Board of Admiralty." -He rej^ttted, that upon hi^ hono'^r he had undertakeii this ^td^iOtis and unpleasant ta>.k without previous consultation any one whatever, though ntjt without warrantable gfoundsl When he first menijoijcd the sub|e(Jt in the Hopse,. however, he had no intention of proceeding so far as he nbw do ; but he had been so provoked by the repealed-extravagant and ill-timed panegyrics and,eulpgiuthj of the Noble Earl's miitaken frivnd?, at a tirije when he felt that by his measures tv.e independence and very existence of the country had been threatened, that he rnidertook his present task whh-out being awar-j of. its magnitude. 1 his he did not lament, any farther than he wished ic was in iTitDre abli'hands, for as he pursucl his inq'jiries into the sabjeft, he derived strength and conndencc frOT, tlve strength of his cause,, the proofs of which lay in the docaments on the table, toiheinvestigationof which he l)espQke the cadid attention of tlie House. Be. fore he adduced his charges against EirlSt. Vln-rcntforut^precedentcd neglcft in his" avlmir.istratvan, it would be necessary for him to shew ivlijit had been 'the ^measures of the Noble Earl's predecessors in of�ce, to keep up the efficiency and povvcr of fh^' British N,nvy. After kaving dcni I'vis, he s'nouM only have (a suftlciently arduous) to inquire, whether tiie steps adopted by the Noble Earl were such as to make p'O.ision equal to the demand of the country, for siipporting t..c k.^.v durin.s; the rime that he wiis First Lo:d of the Tiy the accounts on tlie f.ible it wo-dd no less than 42 .sail ot the line .l.y.- 1, th:it 4; f.-ig.ues had lie S'; been launched from 1773 to 1792, previous to rhi commen'ceracnc of iheiiist war. Qr" these 30 sail of tlie line and 40 frigates had b..'cn launched troin mer-j'chants yards. This was during a petiod of peace, when a less necessity existed tor Gover.nir.ent's availing itself of the assistance of the inerciiants yards, thrn at the time of Karl St. Vincent's letter, dated 29:h Dec. 1804, to the Comptrollers r.f the Navy, of which he s'lould.sulisequently speak. Notwithstanding thi.s . great aiJtivity in b' shijs during thepefioJ which he had mentioned, no less e:certion had been manifested in repairing in the Kind's yards through the whole of that peace. 'I'r.c consequence bntl been that at the comm.'ncement of the war ir. i jn on the table would shew the way in which f�s Navy hud been aficrwards augmented, From January 1793, to January I Sot (it which latter period Earl Sc� Vincent ca.->;j,into cflice), iS sail of the line ai:d ^5 friglides had been b.'.uit; 43'.sail of tlie lin:: and 65 Ingates c;ipturcd ; and 5 N..iI_of the line and 9 fri-gates puiciused; making in the whole 66 s'ail of the line and 121 Irigates; !>eing at an a.XTJfge S ships of the line and a quarter, and. i j frigates annually. He allowed that the captured a:id purchased ships ought ujt to he estimated as entirely new ; to deduct a third on that account would be a "liberal computa-ttoiT. Ir would then apj^ar that for the eight years bei'ire mentioned (from 1793 to i Sot) the Navy, had received an accession of strenjjth, averaging at 6 new ships of the line and a quarter, and 12 new frigates annually^ Was this ir.creaseof strength unnecessary No. Great as had been the exertions of the Noble Eafl's predecessors, they woiilc.; ave been insufliclcrt during the stiiC/of war, and would not have been equal to keep up the N*\fy t6 its proper establish, inent. A snip wha.n new could not run for mo it? tljati fifteen years. On an average, during the greater MUM of the last war, there had been 110 �aii of the itt^ atujcl ^0 frigates in commission; so th^t it'would hav�iequ}(ed an annual supply of 7 sail of the line-ami l9.fri^^tei" to snp()ort that esiahlishment. This waiexclt^ive of coniingrncies and casualties. He wouM nui^ inquire whether Earl St. Vincent had addieci cvvw i^x *hi|>s of the line and �>({tiarter, and twelve ingiitei anhusUy -to the n�vy, which it manitcitly was t\i� duty atleiKttodo, and whether he left to his lucceutih iii "o�cc the poK-er of in-Qreasing, or even of keeping up the naval force uf - L ^--------'---- � �  t t � ^ the Committee ofSupply.
