Message from H. C. with a Bill.

A Message from the House of Commons, by Mr. Foley and others:

Who brought up a Bill, intituled, "An Act for Sale of the Estate in the County of Montgomery, late Part of the Estate of Gilbert Charlton Esquire, deceased; and for purchasing other Estate, or Estates, in the Counties of Nottingham, Leicester, or Lincoln, to be settled to the like Uses as the Estate in the County of Montgomery was settled;" to which they desire the Concurrence of this House.

After Debate;

It was Resolved in the Negative.

Protest against rejecting it.

"Diffentient.

"Haversham.

"We conceive that this Act deserves to be particularly mentioned, and not left to doubtful Constructions; because, as it was at first made to secure our Church, then in Danger by the Concurrence of Papists and Dissenters to destroy it; so we have found by Experience, both in the Reign of King Charles the Second and King James the Second, that it was the most effectual Means of our Preservation, by removing from their Employments the greatest Enemies of our Church; and particularly in the Reign of the late King James, the assuming of a Dispensing Power, and the illegal Practices by closeting and corrupting the Members of Parliament, were chiefly levelled against this Test Act.
