This is a digital copy of a book thai was preserved for generations on library shelves before it was carefully scanned by Google as part of a project 
to make the world's books discoverable online. 

It has survived long enough for Ihe copyright lo expire and the book to enter Ihe public domain. A public domain book is one Ihat was never subject 
to copyright or whose legal copyright term has expired. Whether a book is in the public domain may vary counliy lo countiy. Public domain books 
are our gateways to the past, representing a wealth of history, culture and knowledge that's often difficult to discover. 

Marks, notations and other marginalia present in the original volume will appear in this file - a reminder of this book's long journey from the 
pubfisherto a library and finally to you.

public and we are merely their custodians. Nevertheless, this work is expensive, so in order to keep providing this resource, we have taken steps to 
prevent abuse by commercial parties, including placing technical restrictions on automated querying.

use of public domain materials for these purposes and may be able to help. 

+ Maintain attribution The Google ■"watermark" you see on each file is essential for informing people about this project and helping them find 
additional materials through Google Book Search. Please do not remove it. 

+ Keep it legal Whatever your use, remember thai you are responsible for ensuring that what you are doing is legal. Do not assume that just 
because we believe a book is in the public domain for usere in the United States, that the work is also in the public domain for usere in other 
countries. Whether a book is still in copyright varies from countiy to countiy, and we can't offer guidance on whether any specific use of 
any specific book is allowed. Please do not assume Ihat a book's appearance in Google Book Search means il can be used in any manner

aad be fued, and of taking and receiving charitable Contri. 
batioDs and Benefaftioni, in Money, for the Ufcoffuch 
Bodies politic. 

And then this Rerolution foamndedi waa agreed to by 
the Houfe. 

On the zSih of March, Mr. Oundafs prcfented to the 
Houfe (according lo Order] a Bill, for explaining and amend- 
ing an A£l p^lt'd in the Parliament of Scotland, in iht Vca'r 
1701 , cniitlcd. An A& for preventing wrongous Imprifoa- 
ment, and againll undue Delays in Tryals. Which WU 
rc^d ■ tirll 'I'ime, and ordir'd to be read a Iccond Time. 
AFetltiOB On the iGth of April, 3 Pec'tion of the then late General 
ottheBcneral AfTcmbly of the Chuich of S.-oiUnd, was prefenied to the 
Aflcmblr of tiouTe and, rcprefeniing, That Patronage: have, fince 
Scoilana. the Reformation, been deemed by the faid Lhurcb a very 
great Grievance, and not warranted by the Word of God, 
and have at all Times been flrugg'ed agiinlli that, foon af- 
ter the Revolution, an A£i of Parltiment was made in Scot- 
land, aboiilhJng the Power of Patrons to prefent Minillersio 
vacant Churchei; and at the Union of the two Kingdomi, 
the EDablilhment of the Church of Scotland, in all its Rights 
and Privileges, by that and other A£li of Parliament made 
or ratify'd after ilie Revolntion, wai declared to be a funda- 
mental and elfential Condition and Article of that Union; 
ftnd at that Time, it was the Right and Privilege of the faid 
Church tobe free from Patronages i but that, by an ACt psf- 
fed in the loth Year of her late Majelly Queen Anne, enti- 
tled. An AAioiellore the Patrons to their ancient Right! of 
prcfenting MiniOer) to the Churchei, vacant to that Part of 
Great Britain called .Scotland, the aforcfaid A& pafTcd in the 
* Reien of Kirg Wi[|iani, was refcindcd, in fo far ai concern- 

cd tne Power of Patrons to prefenc Minillers to vacant Pa- 
jiOiei, and other Advantages, which had been the chief 
Thing! bellowed on Patrons, in Lieu and Recompence of 
iheir former Right of Prcfentation, were neveriheleU ruffercd 
to continue with them ; and therefore praying the Houfe to 
psft a Bill for repealing the aforefaid Afl of Parliament, paf- 
fed in the 10th Year of Queen Anne, in fo far as concerns 
the Power of Patrons to prefent MiniUcrs to vacant 
Churches, in order to rcftorethe C'hjrch of Scotland to tha

fl_». Kf a. II. P.irticulars of his Mnjefiy's Spet'cli : When lUcy were to 
"' ' ' approich tlic King, aail to ilL-darc tlicir A!Fi.-flion and their 
?'iJclity to him, iluy thoiiglic it was incoDfillcnt with that 
]-'ii!clity they were ta Jccl.ire, to approve, npon that Occa- 
Jion, of any miniUcrial Moiilures, oiid much more fo, to tle- 
darc their Sat isf;Ldiuii with Mcafures they knew nothing a- 
bout. 'I'his Houfi- i.t the grand Inqaclt of the Nation, ap- 
pointed to intjiiircdiligcntTy, and [o rcprefcnt faithfully to 
the King, all the Grievances of his People, and all the 
Crinn-^aiKlMifnianagcmcnts of hi^ Servants; and therefore 
it mull akvays be a Breach of our Fidelity to our SovereigOi 
a:' well as a Breach of our Duty to his People, to approve 
blindly the Condufl of his Servants. When wc have exa- 
mined diligently, and corlidcrcd di:liberately the ConduQ of 
iiny Miniller, and are at lajt fully convinced that he has 
ULtcd prudently and wifely fur tlie publick Good, it is then 
o'Jr Duty to return him the Thanks of the Publick, and 
to repreCcnt hJm as a foithfid Miniller to his Mailer ; but 
tnnMke Pancg)-ricks upon the Cundufl of any of the King'* 
Servants, lieforc we have examined into it, is morr like 
the Language of Slaves and Sycopliants to a prime Mi- 
niller, than that of lo) aland faithful Subjefls to their So- 

' I muft acknowlcdgL-, Sir, that the Motion now nods 
to us is more general, and more adapted to the ancient 
CuHom of Parliament, tJian rttoti I have heard fincc I have 
had the Honour to be a Member of this Houfc. I hope 
u-c fhall not lind that this extraordinary Modelty proceoli 
from a Confcioufiiefs of Mifconjufl : For the Sake of the 
Publick I heartily with we may find that it proceeds from 
fnperior Merit ; which is, indeed, generally attended with 
fuperinr Modelly ; but as I have always been, upon fuch 
Occafion.t, againA general Kncomiunis upon Minillcn, nod 
as the Propofition now l>efore us, or at Icall a great Pan 
of it, implies a general A)^robaiion of all our late Mca- 
fures, pariicuhrly thofe relating to the prefent War, which 
the M.ijnriiy of thi:> Houie are, in my Opinion, intirelyig- 
norainof, 1 riniiut agree to it > txicaufe I have not yet

comes to be really in Danger, it is not to be queltioiKtl but 
wc fkiU find other Powers as ready to join with us u we 
are to join with them, for i[s Prefervation i and unldiwQ

of EIriiions they Didl be obliged, once in every Parliamenii

porting the Rights of their Country. 

* Injoftice may, 'tis true, be Ibmetimcs done by the Re- 
turning OfficetJ for Counties, as well SB by the Retuning 
Officers for Boroughs. But as there are fuch a great Number 
of Voters fur every County, as almoft every Freeholder's 
Ri^t of vocing mud be examined into, before the Injuftice 
of the Returning Officer can be dcteAed, and ai the nam- 
ing of that Returning Officer depends entirely upon the Mi- 
nitters of the Crown, the EleAion for all the Counties in 
Eo^and is certainly very precarious. And when any In- 
jaftice ii done, the Difcorering of it it lb troublclbme ai>d 
expenfive, that no private Man can well undertake it : In 
fuch Crcumflancet, it will always be eafy for the MiniAeis 
of the Crown to appoint who fhall be the Knights of any 
Shire, whenever they have a Mind ; for if the Retumiar 
Officer makes an undue Return according to their Orden, » 
ii almoft impoffible to difcover the Injuftice done by him, lb 
as to fnbjeft him to the Puniftiment inflidled bt Law t and 
if the Returning Officer Ihoutd hainxn to difobcy their Or- 
ders, it is but making their Candidates petition, by which 
the Gentleiilcn rightfully chofen, and duely letnmed, will be

Snts is this Houre, thui they can be by the liearing of tlic 
Petition I and I muft fay, that the Motion now made 10 ni 
feenu calculated for noUung, but that of laying the fining 
Member and hi) Friends under a Necellicy of yielding to diB 
Fetidoncrs, rather than be at the Expence of tiering the 
Merits of the laft Elcdion at the Bar of this Houfe. 

To this it wai anfwered by Mr Wilmington, Sir Wil- 
liam Yongc and other Mendien, * That it wai inpoffible 
to forctcl how long the hearing of the Yotkflure Peutian 
would laA ; but they could not imagine it would lall near 
fo long as the honourable Gentleman feemed to intinute ; 
fcr Bi the controverted Votes on both Sidei would be very 
much reduced, and fully afoertaincd, by the Lilb that were 
to be mutually deliTcred, they could not think that Dif- 
pute would take up many Days, much ]eb feveral Weeks : 
That they would readily join in any Mearurcs for pre- 
venting the Injuftice of Returning Officers, as well as for 
snaking the controverting of County ElefUoni fhort and 
eafy ; but the concrovened KlcAions then depending could 
not be regulated by any fuch Mcafures : And as many of

Tranquility ; and it would certainly increafe our Trade, b<- 
cauCe ic is not to be quelliaiied but that a great many more 
ricli foreign Merchanta would come over and fettle among 
lu, if tiuy could enjoy all the Privileges of Enelilhmcn 
without changing their Religion : Whcreu, while thofe 
Laws remain unrepealed, a few foreim Tradefmen and 
Mechanicks may perhaps come over ; out rich and opulent 
foreign Merchants will neither come nor flay to fettle their 
Families in this Kingdom, when they conuder that neither 
they nor their Pollerity can afpirc to any Honour or Pie- 
ferment, unlcfs they make a Sacrifice of the Reli^n of 
their AnceAors.' 

The Debate being over, the C^cftion was put, and upon 
a Divifion, it was carried in the Negative by 251 agamll 

March 17. TheHoufe being in a Grand Committtc on 
the Supply, Sir Robert Walpole acquainted the Houfe, 
' That the Share the Civil Lift only had in the Duties on Spi- 
rituous Liquors, had for fcveral Years ktt pift amounted to 
at leaft 70,000 1. yearly, one Year with another ; and u a 
great Part of thu Annuity would be loH to the Crown, it 
was necelTary lo make it good from Ibme other Fund ; there- 
fore he propofed appropriating all the Duties on SpirituiHis 
Liquors to the Aggregate Fund, which maltes a Part of the 
Sinking Fund, and cliarging that Fund with all the Annui- 
ties and Payments formerly payable out of thofe Duties.' 

But this was oppps'd by ieveral iVkmbers, who llrotigly in-

ceffion to the Throne ; and that chat Lofs ought to 1m 
Blade good to his Majclty is a Que&ion (hat feemi to mc 
to have been already determined by this Houie, when we 
agreed to thofe Relblutions upon which this Bill was foun- 
ded : Therefore the only QuclUon now before us, ii, to de- 
termine how much his Majelty will really lore, in order that 
the fame may be for the future ntade good to his Majdiy, 
out of that Fund to which we have alreKly apprcnviaud 
thofe Duties, which formerly belonged to his MajcAy s Gnl 
Lift. This, in my Opinion, is no more than doing that 
Jullice to his Majefty, which every man in a private Capa- 
picity would in flich a Cafe moft reafonably exptSt from 
another : If I forrender a Pan of my Eltate to my Neigh< 
bour for his Conveniency, it is but reafonable he ftiould 
make eood to me the Damage I may fuftatn by fuch Surren- 
der. Whether the Lofs his Maje% will moft certainly fuftaiflf 
by taking from him thofe Duties which formerly beknged 
to him, may be made good by the Incrcafe (mT fome of 
the other Ihiiies appropriated to the Civil lift, is a Queftioa 
of a difierent Nature : I am ccitatn it cannot now be de- 
termined whether there be any fuch Incrcafe or not j and if 
any fuch Increafu ShoM hereafter appear, then it will be 
Time enough to determine how that Incieafo ought to be 
difpofed of.

that Grant good to his Majelty, which I am hr from tHaak

odd, for Gentlemen to propofe putting a Value apoB ik 
Lofs his Majefty may fuftain by talcing from him a Rfr 
venue which he has enjoyed, by computing the Produce of 
a Revenue he never enjoyed. Surely every Gentleman anl 
fee the Fallacy of this Argument : We do not defiie to 
take any Revenue from his Majcfty, and therefore wc lit 
not to compute the Lofs he may juftain by the ttkiiv of 
any Revenue from him ; but if any Revenue be takea noM 
him, the Parliament wc lay is obliged to make it good 
only according to that Value which was put upon it by 
the Parliament that granted it, and not according to tlw 
incicafed Value it may fince have arifen to, by an Abofe 
which ought, long before this Time, to have been cfieflo-

cife began ta incre:ire, fo that in the Year ended at Mid* 
fummer 173;, itprodncud 1,071,240!. whichii 107,477!. 
jDoie than ic produced in 1729. 

* Again, Sir, upon the Repea! of the late Gtn-Afl, the 
Confumption of Spirituous Liquors began to increafc, ind 
conrequentty the Produce of the Ducies on fuch Liquors, fit 
that in thi; Yiar ended at Midfummer laft they produced 
154,094!. and the Confeqnencc with refpcA to the Ejidle 
on Beer and Ale we find to be the fame ; for in the Year 
ended at MidTummer laft, ic produced but i,oti,}7el. 
which is 49,870!. lefs than it produced in 1732- From 
all whicji, !:ir. I thinlc it is ai plain as Figures can make it, 
that the CoiTTumption of Beer and Ale lus hitherto ali»)4 
dccreafed or increafed, as the Confumption of Spiriiuoa 
Liquors has increafed or dccreafud t and as tliat has been 
the Cafe in alt Time paft, we muft fuppofe u wi!! be the 
Cife in aU Time to come. 

' This then lieing laid down ai a Maxim confirmed bjr 
Experience, let us confider how greatly, I may timoft hj 
how entirely, t!ic Confumption, not only of home-made Sp- 
rits, but of all Spirits, n-ill be diminilhed by the Bill now 
before us, and wint an Increafe that will make in the CoO' 
fiimption of Beer and Ale i but that I may not be accafed 
of any extravagant Calculation;, 1 fliall fuppofe that tlie 
Confiunption of ^jpiricuous Liquois may hereafter be but one 
Third lefs than it wu before : the natural Inferesce fran 
tlience is, that the Confumption vf Beer and Ale will be 
<me Third more than it was, and confequently that tlie Ex-

• By the Report, Sir, of his Majefty'i Juftices of the 
Peace at HickVhall in the Month of January lalt, wc fiai, 
there were then within Weftminilcr, Holfaom, the Tower, 
and Fiiifhury Divifion [exclufive of London and South wark) 
7044 Houfcs and Shop;, wherein Geneva and other Spiri- 
tuous Liquors were publickly fold by Retail, of which thqr 
had got an Account, and that they bdicred it was very hi 
fhort of the true Number : From hence, Sir, if we include 
London, Souchwark, and the other I'lacei within the Bills 
of Mortality, 1 may modeltly compute there are lojoao 
Houfes and Shops within the Bills of Mortality, where 
Geneva and ochcr Spirituous Liquors are ft^d by Retail ; 
and tho' the People within the Bills of Mortality are com- 
puted to be but a fifth, or a lixth Part of the People of 
Kngland, yet I ihall reckon but 20,000 Houfci and Shop] 
in all the other Pans of England, where Spirituous li- 
quors are folJ by Retat', the whole being 40,000- Now 
to each of thcfe Iloiifcs I /hall allow but ten Caltomen, 
who are cxcefTivc Drinkers of Gin, fuch I call thofe who 
may drink alMut half a Pint a Day, one Day with another 1 
and ten Cultomers who arc moderate Drinkers of that U- 
quor, fuch 1 call thofe who do not drink above half a Quar- 
tern 3 Day, one Day with another. This makes in F.ngbod 
400,000 exceflivc Drinkers, and 400,000 moderate Driaken 
of Spirituous Liquors i and confidering how nniverfally the 
Cullom of drinking fuch Liquors has got in among the eon-

fay, that tiiccc b a Power given lo th« Jullko to fettle the

which oblige! many of the Qoakcn in fome Shape or aiher

only (as thelcatncd Counfd faid] which the Garritbn waati)

in doing it : Bat they have f^i unjuli Po6eflJQn, aad wmiU 
have you wiUidraw your Forcei, that ikcy may (IrengthOB

Su', I thinlt the Compirifbii ha< been invened ; that Party 
i» in PotTcflion who kare a juf£ Title, and they only defite 
10 keep wh«t they have, without extending liieir Tcrriio- 
rin i and it wouM be extremely ucjuft lo pull tlown their

Advantage of it. 

' Ai to the Eecleliaftieal Coorti, the Qualrert have been 
dcfy'd to produce any InAances of their being much troubled 
here t ana indeed they are exceedingly few : Et-cry Thing 
in the Couife of 'rime aiU d^encrate from iti oripnal In-

I tbis general Coofideracion, Sir, we ooght to add aao- L/'y^/ 
which it peculhr to this Kingdom : It ii not only pe- 

■ 10 this Kingdom, but is ia iifElf of ■ mofi peculiar 
moft extnordiaary Naturft In this free, thia happy 
try, we have a Party amongfl us, and a confidenbla 
too, who are every Day labouring to deftray that 
Ion to which only they owe rheir very ExiftenCe at a 
, who are every Day contriving Plots 6a putting an 
DO that Happindi in which they thenfelvei flure. 

I I by this, I be^ve. I need not tell Gentlemen, t 
the ymaiiitf tXiiPafifli in the Kingdom^ I believe 
Icafi I with that this Party has not of late gained 
od amoag the better Sort, but I am dfraid. Sir, it i* ^ 
r oaiy to the dread of ■ Military Force, that the in- 

Rank of People are kept fo quiet as they have of ' 
'cart been. But, Sir, lam far ftord thinking the 
il^ei of yatttirifm to be quite extinfi even among 
«tcr Son. If we fliould leave the Government US' 
led of a fufficicnt Military Force, it would immc' . ' 

J mire their Hopes ; and if they fltould again break 
i rnten Rebellion, they would certainly be joined by ' 
B Abandcmed, the Profligate, and the DerpeTate„who 
generally chufe that Siiie, as being that from which 
[Day expefl the grcateft Reward in cale of Succcfs ; 
ich Cale we (hotilJ ngain b« obliged [o Aght for our 
lies, ind the mod fortunate Kvcitt would be attended ~ 

;reat public Lofs, and with many private Calamities. 
: letting afide [he general Interelli of the Govern-

D Military Difcipline, chat even private Property can 
te fecure againil Rogues and Pilferers, if as in other 
rics they Ihould turiii ihemlclves into Gangi. Ac 
Sir, there might be agrcai deal ofMifchief done, be- 
ley could be fupprcfi'd and brought to Jolliee. Then 
regard to Mobiand Tumults, we find by Experience, 
egolar Troops are of great Ufe, not only for pro 
ig any fuch from happening, but for (]uelling and 
uig them after they huve hippenfd, and that without 
[Tcat Miichief's being done ot either Side: Whereas

me togivefbme Reafons for tny being of a contrary 
"nt. 1 knMv, Sir, that all oar Neighbours have now 
ito a Method of keeping up a large Body of' regular 
; but it is not for the fole Rcalon, that fofh Troops 
vays havea great Superiority over Militia, or that a V i 

ment cannot be fupporied without the Ailitlance of ^ 
-oopi ; it is becaufe among moll of themt I may fay 
ail of them, feme fort of abfolute and arbitrary 
ment has been lately ititftiducedi and for fupponing 
government, it is abfolutely ncceflary to keep up a 
g-Army. But there was a time. Sir, when the Pratlice 
nngupa Body of regular TroBps for the Purpofes 
avernmeot and Miniltry, was as little known in thefe 
let aa till within thefe fixty Veart they were in ours, 
B Country a Body of regular Troops mufl always 
ik preferable to a Body of their Militia, moll of

Sir, look over all our Hitloriei, examine all former tit-

j think therein too good a Foundation i but then it is a Rea- 
fon for diminilbing every other Ariicie of the public Ex-

Now.Sir.with regard to the Intention of that Parlii- ^j.^ icGrti 
tnent by whom the prcfcnt Civil Lilt was eltablifhcd ; ifwc II. 1756-7. 
confider the Circ am (lances of the Royal Family at that K,^^f\^ 
Time, and the Circomflances of the Royal Family when 
the Civil Lift was e^blifhed in the former Reign, we (hall 
very eaiily £nd a Meaning for the' Experuna of pafi Timtt 
being very difterent from what is now put upon thefe Words. 
When the Civil Lift Revenue was euablilhcd upon his late 
Majefty, a very narrow Scrutiny was made into (he whole 
Articles of the Expence of our civil Government, and par- 
ticularly into the Expence neceHary for fupportlng the 
Dignity and Giandenr of the Prince vfWalti ; from which 
Scrutiny Jt mu computed that 600,000/. a Year at leaft 
would be necefTary for fupportlng the King's Houlhold and 
civil Government > but let us confider that the King had 
then no Queen, nor any Children to provide for : From 
the (ame Scrutiny it was computed that 100,000 /, a Year 
out of the Civil Lifl Revenue was the leaft Sum that would 
be necelTary for fupporting the Dignity and Grandeur of 
the Prinet of WaUs ; bu: let us remember that the Prince 
of IVaiei bad then a Priiicifi of Walet, and, to our Happi- 
nefs. feveral Children to provide for. During that Retga 
it had been found that 100,000,/. a Year, was fufficient 
for fupporting the Prince and Princefi of Walts, tf'nd all 
their Children i but it had likewife been found that it re- 
quired 700,000 /. a Year to fupport the King's fioulhold 
and civil Government, tho' he had no Qieen nor any 
Children to provide for. 

This, Sir, was the Expirimce »f fafi Timii which gave 
OccafioB to the Incrcafing his prefent Majelty's Civil Lilt 
Revenae to 800,000 /. a Year ; but if we confider the Cir- 
cumilances of the Royal Family at the Time of his Ma- 
jelty's Acceflioni we mult fee that the Parliament from tbit 
•very Experience could not but conclude, that it would re- 
quire more than 700,000 /. a Year to fupport his prefent 
Majelly's Houlhold and civil Government ; becaufe he had 
a Queen and feveral younger Children to provide for, which 
the late King had not ; and from the fame Experience they 
mult likewik have concladed, that it would not require 
lOOiOOo/. 8 Year to fupport the Prince af Ifaks, bccaufe 
he had then neither « Princefs, nor any Children to pro- 
fide for { for if they had concluded that too,cooj'. aYcac 
would be neceiTary for fupporting the Prince o/ WaUs fing- 
ly, they muft from the Experience of pafi Times have granted 
more than 700,000 /. a Year for fupporting the prefent 
King's Honfliould and civil Government, confidering that 
)hc iud a Qoeeo ud feveral young Children to provide for.

Then, S!r. I muft not forget andtlier yearly Addrtw. 
■which mny be looked on as a verj- great Sum, conCderoj 
from wlience it comes, i mean a Sum of 40,000 /. a Vni 
from SatJanJ, which is now a yearly Addition 10 the Cirl 
Liltr 1 will not, indeed, talce upon me to fay, ihlClk 
Wiiole or ary Part of that Sum is brought in Sftntxa 
LenJoH ; but if it h laid out for paying Pen lions in Sieikai, 
whi^h muH be paid yezrly out ot the Civil Lift RevmK, i

being lent yearly itt Spoilt from Litndon. From all wliici
