Admiralty Papers, Report concerning.

The Earl of Rochester reported from the Lords Committees, appointed to consider of the Papers from the Admiralty, as followeth:

"The Lords Committees, appointed to take into Consideration several Papers, delivered into this House by Mr. Burchet, from the Admiralty-office, the Eighth Day of this Instant February, relating to the present Condition of the Navy, upon which they were directed to report their Opinion to the House; considering how far the Season is advanced, thought it proper to inquire into the Preparations making for the present Year; and, in the First Place, to desire his Royal Highness Prince George of Denmarke, Lord High Admiral of England, to cause to be laid before their Lordships an Account, in Writing, what Number of Ships, fit for Home Service, may be got ready and manned within Twenty Days; to which their Lordships received in Answer a Paper, intituled,

"A List of such Ships of Her Majesty's as are now at Home in Sea Pay, with an Account which of them are designed on Foreign Service, and what Number of Men they want, to make up their allowed Complements, according to the late Musters:

"Whereby it appears, that 62 Ships from the Second to the Sixth Rate are now designed for Home Service, which want the Number of 3149 Men, to make up their allowed Complements; and that 31 Ships from the Second to the Sixth Rate, designed on Foreign Service, want the Number of 2332 Men, to make up their allowed Complements; to which is added, in the Close of the said Paper, that, by the foregoing List, it will appear, that several of the Ships are in Want of considerable Numbers of Men to make up their Complements; their Captains have Press Warrants, with strict Orders to endeavour to get what Men they can; but it is very uncertain by what Time they will be able to get such a Number as will put them into a Condition to proceed to Sea; and, for that Reason, it is impossible to inform the Lords Committees, how many of them can be got ready and manned for Home Service in Twenty Days.

"By which, since their Lordships find that they cannot come to be informed how many Ships may be got ready and manned for Home Service within Twenty Days, whilst so great a Number of Men is wanting to make up the allowed Complements of the Whole; yet they cannot but hope a sufficient Number of Ships, for any present Exigent, may be got ready and manned: Therefore they are humbly of Opinion, that an Application be made to the Queen, That Her Majesty will please to give speedy and effectual Orders, that such a Number of Ships, proper for the Home Service, may be forthwith got ready and manned, as may be competent to provide for the Security of the Nation, and protect the Trade of it; without which, their Lordships, with all Submission, conceive these Two Matters of so great Importance to the Safety of Her Majesty and the Peace of the Kingdom, as well as the Naval Stores, and such Ships of War as cannot be immediately fitted out to Sea, lie daily exposed to any Insults from our Enemies."

To which Report the House agreed; and ORDERED, That an humble Address be made to Her Majesty, pursuant to the said Report; and that the same Lords Committees as made the said Report do meet To-morrow, at Ten a Clock in the Forenoon, and draw up the said Address; and report to the House.

Ford, Warden of The Fleet, versus Leighton.

A Petition of William Wcedon Ford, Warden of The Fleet, being read; praying a Bill of Exceptions may be allowed, which was now laid before this House, and signed and sealed by the Lord Chief Justice of the Queen's Bench and Mr. Justice Gould; praying, "That it may be allowed, and made Part of the Record now depending in this House, to which he is Defendant, and Colonel Baldwin Leighton (by Her Majesty's Attorney General) Plaintiff:"

After Debate thereupon, it was agreed, that the Petitioner might withdraw his Petition and Bill of Exceptions, the Writ of Error being only upon the Discontinuance.

It is ORDERED, by the Lords Spiritual and Temporal in Parliament assembled, That the said William Weedon Ford do join Issue upon the said Record Tomorrow, at Ten a Clock in the Forenoon.

Inhabitants of Staincliffe versus Willan, in Error.

Upon reading the Petition of Thomas Willan, Defendant in a Writ of Error depending in this House, wherein the Inhabitants of the Hundred of Staincliffe are Plaintiffs; shewing, "That the arguing the Errors thereupon is (by moving of Causes) appointed to be heard on Monday next; on which Day his Counsel are to go the Circuit, and will be out of Town; and therefore praying, that some speedy Day may be appointed for hearing thereof:"

It is ORDERED, by the Lords Spiritual and Temporal in Parliament assembled, That this House will hear the Errors argued thereupon on Saturday next, at Ten a Clock, the First Business.
