II. and hy Sec. 11, it is nacied, that for encouraging foreign Mariners and Seamen io come and serve op board Ships belonging to Great Britain, every such foreign Seamen or Mariner, who shall have lawfully served, during the Time of War, on board any of his Majesty's Ships of War, or any Merchant or other Trading Ship or Vessel, or Privateer, which, at the Time of such Service, shall belong to any of his Majesty's Subjects in Great Britain, shall be deemed and taken to be a Natural Born Subject of his Majesty's Kingdom of Great Britain, and have and enjoy all the Privileges, Powers, Rights, and Capacities, which such foreign Mariner or Seamen would bare had and enjoyed, in case he had been a Natural Born Subject of his Majesty, and actually a Native within the Kingdom of Great Britain, subject to the Restrictions mentioned in Stat. 12 & 13 W.

Previous to the Cominencement of the War of the French Revolution, an Act was passed, 33 Geo. III. C. 4, For establishing Regulations respecting Aliers erriving in this Kingdom, or resident therein in certain Cases, which was continued from Time to Time during the War. Upon the Termination of the War, the Statute 42 Geo. III. c. 92 was passed, For repealing several Acts for Estatlishing Regulations respecting Aliens arriving in this kingdon, or residing Herein in certain Cases, and for substituting other Prorisions in lieu thereof Upon the recommencement of Hostilities, the Siatute 43 Geo. 111. c. 155 was passed To vepeal an Act passed in the last Session of Parliament, for establishing Regulalions respecting Aliens arriving in this Kingdom, or resident therein, and for establishing, until three Months after the Ratification of a Definitive Treaty of Prece, Regulations respecting Aliens arriving in this Kingdom, or resident therein and upon Conclusion of the late Peace, the Statute 54 Geo. Ill. c. 155, lo repeai s dct for establishing Regulations respecting Aliens arriving in or resident in this Kingdom in certain Cases, and for substituting olher Provisions, until the End of le nest Session of Parliament in lieu thereof. If any permanent Act should be passed upon the subject, previous to the Appearance of this Collection, it will Dost probably be inserted or noticed in the Appendix.]

By the Irish Statute, 14 & 15 Chas. II. c. 13, foreign Traders, Manufacturers, Mariners, &c. being Protestants, who should, within seven Years, transport themselves with their Sioek to Ireland, are naturalized, taking the Oaths.

These Provisions are continued with some Variation, and are rendered more comprehensive, extending to all Persons except Jews, subject to certain Regulations, by 19 & 20 Geo. III. c, 29-23 & 24 Geo. III. c. 38. The Statute 36 Geo. III. e. 48 contains further Provisions upon the Subject, and seems to anoul the Exception of Jews, but confines the Benefit of the Statutes to Persons who shall previously have obtained a Licence from the Chief Governor in Council. See 1 Gabbell, c. 10, p. 307.

For Statutes 11 & 12 W. III. c. 6, for enabling natural born Subjects to inherit, notwithstanding their Parents were Aliens, and 25 Geo. III, c. 39, obria:ing Doubts on that Statute, see Part II. Class 1.]

I. c: 2. * Grace and Favour, which are not fit to be bestowed upon any others than such as are of the Religion now established in this Realm ;' Be it therefore enacted by the King's most excellent Majesty, the Lords Spiritual and Temporal, and the Commons, in this present Parliament assembled, That no Person or Persons of what Quality, Condition, or Place soever, being of the Age of Eighteen Years above, shall be naturalized or restored in Blood, unless the said Person or Persons have received the Sacrament (1) of the Lord's Supper within One Month next before any Bill exhibited for that Purpose, and also shall take the Oath of Supremacy, and the Oath of Allegance, in the Parliament-House, before his or her Bill be Twice read: And for the better effecting of the Premises, Be it further thacted by the Authority aforesaid, That the Lord Chancellor of England, or Lord Keeper of the Great Seal for the l'ime being, if the Bill begin in the Upper House, and the Speaker of the Commons House of Parliament for the Time being, if the Bill begin there, shall have Authority at all times during the Session of Parliament, to minister such Oath and Oaths, and to such Person and Persons, as by the true Intent of this Statule is to be ministred. This Act to take place from and after the End of this present Session of Parliament.

(1) The Provision for taking the Sacrament was dispensed with, as to lews, by Statute 26 Geo. II. c. 26. This was the single Provision of the famous jew Bill, which excited so great a ferment as endangering the Religion of the Country, that the first Act of the following Session was a Sacrifice to popalar Clamour by its Repeal. The Alarm seems to have operated even upon the enlightened Mind of Sir Wm. Blackstone, who says, that it is not his Intention to revive the Controversy, for the Act lived only a few Months and was then repealed; therefore, Peace be now to its Manes.--1 Com. 375.
