In COWmegueney OF 4 motion of Lord Folkestone, who is
eititled to the thanks of the nation for the watchfulness
he bias coustantly sheanin regard to the einploy ing of foe
reign ‘Proops in this kingdom, Before benter uconan
accoantof the debate to which I now allude, it will be
necessary, in yrder to a clear understanding of the watter,
bricily to state what the law is. First, then, the las,
as comtaimus! in the det of Settlement, passed in the 12th
and Pochet Wiltam the Sd, and which act, be it observed,
expresses the conditions, upon whieh the House of Brans.
wick Should succeed to the throne of Eng and; the law,

Shall hold, uuder thy Crown pf these kingdoms, avy afp ie,
or place of (rust, coat or military. Ava, | bes the rea.
der fo observe, that this act os entitled, an act for further
limiting the Crown, and betler securing the rights and
brherty of the people; so that, in order better to secure
the rights and liberty of the peunle, it was thoucht ne.
cessary to prefubite the Crowu from employing Jorciau.
CFs de vllicens in thearmy, in casethe House of Brunswick
succeeded to the “Elirone,—Thus stood the law, when,
In Pst. ao Bed was passed to authorize the King t yembody
certain dore gners toto eorps, aud to employ them in- his
scrvtee “Pls was the set under which those troops called
the German Legion were raised. [Tt authorized the King
fo putthe mea thus raised under the commend of Foresgn
Oficcrs, aud, of course, itdeparted from the act of Settle.
moult in Uats respect, because, it sanctioued the putting of
lorcigners into places of military trust im this kingdor,
L inust observe here, too, that this was adel of inde minty .
fur the Kiug, or rather his ministers, had actually raised the
corps and appointed the ollicers before the aet was passed,
dud by the act the Parhament tndema/fied then for having
dune so! However, the act was passed, and it became legal
for the Ning to givemiilary trust to Foreigners as Officers
in these particular corps; but, that the act extended no
farther, Chat it did not authorize the Keng to give them
military teust any where clse than ia these corps, is quite
clear from the preamble of the bill itself, which states, that
the Kins shall be authorized to give forcigners places of
intiitary Crust in these corps, because they understand the
language and manners of the men of whom the corps are
fo be composed.-——Under the sanction of this act, how,
ever, or, al least. since this act was passed, Foreign Oflicers
have beon put ypou the General stall; they have had com.
mands given (hem in the districts of Fngland; they have
cormnmanded at reviews in Eugtand ; they bavehad the com.
mand in England in some cases, where even regiments of
militia*have been under them ; and, lastly, they have held
commissions in English regiments; though i¢ would seem
strange that they should have been thus employed, seeing,
that, at any rate, they are not likely to understand the
language and manners of our men better than our native
ofiicers !—Still, however, there was one clause in the act
of 1804, which it seemed impossible to get over ; and that
was, that the act should cease to be in force at the end of
the war. Of course, when peace eame, the commissions
of these officers must all cease.—This 1 was well aware of,
and, therefore, 1 said that the Order from the Horse
Guards if I understood it rightly, was illegal.—Not so,
the hireling writers of the London press. ‘They applauded
the Order, and the Courier vews-papers in particular
abused before-hand any one that should find fault with it,
asserting, that any one who did, must bea friend of Bo.
naparte.— We now come to the debate In question, th
View original whole of which, ¢s published in the Courier news-paper
of the 11th inst. 1 have inserted below, and every “word
of which I beg the reader to attend to, as being of the ut-
most importance tg our libertics and our personal safety ;
aye, of much grater importance to those liberties than are
the events in S inand Portugal, and, perhaps, even those
in Russia and Noland-—Lord F olkestone, as will be scen
in the account of the debate, 1 ial that the German
ollicers were how tohave permanent renk, and that they
were shouldering out our own oflicers and taking the com.
mand ofour Own atinies. Lord Palmerston, the Sceretary
at War, did not, it seems think it proper lo support the
Order from the War-oflice, and explained it to mean, not
that the German officers were to haye real rank after the
end of this war, as Lord Folkestone supposed, and as
supposed, aud as Mr. Canning said he supposed, and a
every body c!se supposed; but thatthe Order meant mere.
ly, that those oilicers shold, after the war, have their
NAMES prigte Jinthe army tist according to the rank chich
they had borne befovethe end of the war.—Lut, why was
it not so e% pressed i in the Ordcr ? Why cid not The Order
suy this? ‘Phe Order said no gucin ting + and, indeed, as
far as words heve a definite meaning, the Order said just
the contrary. Said, S*i at Chose oOfieers, Now ser yang
with dempo, oy rath iw the several segimeats of that
‘Scorps, shall wave permancoat rank in the British army.”
What could this be understood (o mean othee than that
these officers were to come in and take their turn in all
promotion in onrarmy, and to remain in it with the same
security for the duration of theit commissions as that pos.
sesscd by our own olliccrs ?—Lord Palmerston says, how.
TS fe hal Us permanence related mercly to the insertion
of their names in the arary bist, after the war. Ef this had
heen Oe Care, tae Order was perfect NOMSEDAL ; for, as the
reader may sec, if be looks bach into the arary lists, their
naines hate, jor along time past, beow inserted ip that fist,
But, what a gross absurdnl y will that list pre ent; what
auegregious piece of fully, if it should contain the “Wames
of these officers after the wae? Aftcr the war, they will,
as we have secon, be wo longer vsaecés in our ethice > their

hat propoaly.thea, woud their names appear in the
English armyehet; in the lst of an army to whieh they
would ne more Walon, rthan they would to the army of the
American stat >? fUappears Cr nioeto be something too
absurd to be though! yo. -ib'e, chat this scheme should have
been in contiispiatios. No: sometiieg more solid w as,
J am fully convimced, intended ; and, i basing been dis.
covered, thet the boca could not be cranted without an
act of Purliament, it becwune prudent (uo give the matter
up. If the Order had gone ingo eect agreeably to the
plain Euglish of it, it is very clear that iC would have Up.
raed greatly to the injury of the otffcers of our own arniy.
Kor instance, an Pngh-h colonel * lave had twenty
or thirty of these Geeman colons pat, at once over his
head, if there were (hat number whase commissions were
of a date prior ta his, which woukl have Docu extremely
injurious to Lin, and, wpoa the supposition of bis having
purchased his commission, ul lows unpect than jajurions :
seeing that, whew lie purck Ase. ) tie Could wot have bad tu
contemplation the ntbductt of thee or any other fo.
reigners.—The matter, however, has now boot expheined,
and with that explanation PE should base beew satened for
the present, if other matters, conncctal wath tty had not
been introduced. While the orloe was, in the debate, ex.
plained not to mean that the Germans were to have rank
permanently in our army, great pains were taken to incul.
cate the opimion, (hat such a favour would not have been
too great for their merits. ‘Vhe praises bestowed apon
thein were unbounded ; one member appears to have been
understood as giving them the prefercnée to English obigers
and Lord Palmerston, rather indiscres ‘tly, as it turned out,
called upon Lord Foikestune to look at the gaeclivs, if he
wished to know whether the Germans had, or had not,
distinguished themselves during (he war.—Lord Folkestone
accepted the challenge, whith was repeated by Ceneral
Stewart. Ilis Lordship said, **With respect to the desire
or rather challenge, of the gallant Officer (Stewart) to look
to the gazettes, in order to ascertain the achicvements of
the German Legion, he (Lord IF.) had taken oceasion to
review those gazeltes, because asimilar desire lad been
the night before expressed to him by others, and he was
happy to Gnd that in glory, asit appeared from the losses,
the British army was not inferior, compared with those
highly-applauded, those particularly honoured Foreigners
For what was the comparison? Why, let the House and
the Country judge fr6m a few instances.”"-—His Lordship
then made the following comparative statement, a copy of
which he has done me the honour te transmit to nie.

That is for cach one English Battalion, more than the fivs
German Battalions put together.
Now, reader, Fnzlish reader, when you have looked
wellat this, look once more at the order in question, whieh
said that, In consideration of the King’s German \ gion
having so frequently distinguished themselves against the
enemy, duiiug the campaigu, but particulary at the battle
of Salamanca, [is Royal Highness the Prince Regent, act.
ing in the name audean behalf of Ihis Majesty, has been
p cased to order that those Ollicers now serving with tem.
porary sank in the several regiments of that: corps, shall
have permanent rank in the British army, from the dates
of their respective Commissions.” Mere, then, are we all
ina situationto judge. **U pou this review,’ added Lond
Fotkestune, the Country may decide which description
of force encovucered wore danger, suflered mere loss, game
ed more glory, or was entitled to more praise. ‘Tu sume
persons he knew it would be absurd to appeal. From
those who paid more regard to then own will than to daw
vr reason ; from those who coald originate an orders appa.
rently designed, a. ul sinee it was issucd be would wader.
take tu say wotoriows!y coaceived, to tuvolve a direct viow
lation of law, bow « meric nul expect Y8e attention. But he
ttl 10 Thal eousiderat.ou of the Cecutleun eS e,
who must fee! (hat whatever dilcccuce of ign might
pre vail Upot gen ‘ral Yiles tions, the 7 fsa lion of this
extraordinary order wes ca’culated toe good."—A great
deal Of good, certainly, and for wieh tho country is ine
debted to Lord Folkestone, who by Uns one act, tas, in
my opinion, rendered greater serviee to the country than
would be rendered by the driving of the Preach out of
Spain.—That the Order was gcaeraliy wacerstgod as put.
ting the Germans upon the same footing as our officers ;
that it was understood as giving Chem a permanent situation
in our army, is very clear, and, indeed, General Stewart
defended the Order iathat sease uf it. Lord Palmerston
said, indeed, that the German Officers did uot so under.
stand it; and, in proof of the truth of his assertion, he
said he had a letter to thateflect fromsome German Baron,
who is a General ; but, upon a question being putto f. ord
Palmerston by ext I olkes (one, the former eoufessed Chat
the said letter was written after the latter had given notice
of his motion.— Upon this occasion the old doctrines ; that
is to say, the doctrines of the last writer, were advanced
in defence of employing these foreiguers in England, and
Mr. Ponsonby, the leader of the whigs, be aged to be uu.
derstood as not participating in the vulgar prejudices”
which were said toexist against employing these foreigners
in England. Sir If. Mildmay is also reported as having
disclaimed such prejudices. ‘They were well answered by
Lord Milton, who said, that he must protest against any
foreigner whatever, being appointed to commands i in Eng-
land, and that he could make no exception in favour of
I[anoverians, for that they were not, and never had been
subjects of the King of England.—It was urged by Lord
Palmerston and others, in defence of the employing of
foreign troops, thit Bonaparte did the same. ‘This was
urged once before, and it was once before observed in an.
View original swer, that it ought to be shown, to make if a case in point,
that Bovaparte employed foreign troops in Prance ; that
he gave them commissions in French regiments; that he
gave them command of military districts in France; no
part of which has ever been, and, in nvy opinion, ever can
be, shown,—Besides, must wedy a thing, or thivh a thing
Hy to be done; beeause he does the like’ ? What would
be said of me if I were to insist (hat we ought to dbolish
tithes, for instance, because tithes have been abolished in
I'rance ? Nay, to come closer to the point, what was said,
and what was attempted to be donc, to the editor of tne
Independent Whig, because he found fault with oar Go-
vernment for not treating our soldicrs in the same manner
that Bonaparte treated his soldiers? ‘This, supposing the
cases to be perfectly similar, is no justification atall of the
Measuic, But nothing can, in my opinion, be more dis-
similar than the two cases, and the use of the argunont
only tends to shew how destitute the measure is of auy
solid ground of support.—'There may be room for doubt
as to whether the employing of foreign troops abrowd be
Wiseor not. That is a question which J shall be very
willing to leave to the decision of these who are in ex; ec.
tation of being able toetlect ‘*the deliverance of Muro: .
Itisin England; it is here, in our own country, an!
amongst ourselves, that 1 disapprove of the employment
of forvign troops, and [ disapprove of it, upon the same
principles and upon the same grounds that itwesdimwapprov.
ed of by our forefathers. L would rather that they nev rc
shoulh be where an English army is; but, the object of
my rooted antipathy is their being in bLngiand —I do
seem too, rather.singular, that we should stand in need of
these Hanove.ians to assist us in a war in Spain and Poe.
tuxal, where, as we are told, all the people hate our en.
mies aud love us. weys if this be true, should we go to
Ge ‘rmany, and pay large bounties far troops tu assist us?
Surely, we inight raise troops enough in Spain full as zea.
lous fur the liberties of that oe as the German Legion
istikely to be. In short, as Tnever haveseen, su i cane
