III. A TABLE for readily ascertaining the NUMBER OF DAYS, from any one Day in the Year to another, inclusive.

eller December.
By this Table may be readily ascertained the number of days from any one given day in the year to another, including the two days given. For instance, irom
the ist of January to the 14th of August, (first and last days included,) there are 226 days. To find the number of days, look down the column of January to the
figures 14, and then look along in a parallel line to the column of August, and you will find the number 226.

To find the number for any other days (both inclusive,) as from the 24 of February to the 14th of August :- Deduct from 226 (against Augụst 14,) the number 32, which stands against the preceding day, the Ist of February, and the difference 194, will be the number required.

In leap years add one to the number after the 28th of February

IMPRESSING. The practice of impressing seamen for the naval service, is of very ancient date; and, in the words of Lord Chief Justice Mansfield, “the power is founded upon immemorial usage allowed for ages.” It does not, however, appear, as is observed by Sir Michael Forster, that any statute directly declares this power to be in the crown ; nevertheless many indirectly imply it, as the 2 Richard JI. c. 4.; 2 and 3 Philip and Mary, c. 16. ; 5 Elizabeth, c. 5. &c.; and, by several* statates, especial protections are allowed to seamen in particular circumstances, erempting them from being impressed ; * which is a tacit admission of the general right. But unless specially protected by custom or by statute, the right of impress extends to all sea-faring persons. (R. v. Tubbs, Cowp. 512.) Thus, being a freeholder is no cause of exemption, (R. v. Douglass, 2 Smith 47.) ; nor being a headborough, (Ex parte Fox, 5 T. R. 276.); nor being a freeman or liveryman of London. (R. v. Young, 9 E. R. 466.) However, there are numerous exemptions by custom, as well as by statute ; and persons executing particular services for government are not unfrequently privileged by special protection from the admiralty, navy-board, &c. Respecting the last-mentioned class of cases, it may be observed, once for all, that a mariner thus protected is entitled to be discharged, though he may not have his protection on board with him at the time of his impressment. (Pratt's Case, 16 E. R. 167.) Also, that a bargeman, protected by the navy-board while carrying timber to the king's docks, cannot be impressed, even under a warrant from the admiralty. (Goldswain's Case, 2 Bl. Rep. 1207.) But at the same time it must be noticed, that an impress protection, though granted by the admiralty for a specific period, may be withdrawn at pleasure. (Herbert's Case, 16 E. R. 165.) There are some local customs for the exemption of persons from impressment which are not within the design of these pages, but the privilege of ferrymen is for public convenience an universal custom. Exemptions by statute also are numerous.

Ecery ship in the coal trade has the following number of persons protected, viz. two able seamen (such as the master shall nominatet) for every ship of 100 tons; and one for every fifty tons for every ship of 100 tons and upwards; and any officer who presumes to impress any of the above, shall forfeit, to the master or owner of such vessel, 101. for every man so impressed ; and such officer shall be incapable of holding any place, office, or employment in any of his Majesty's ships of war. 6 and 7 William III. c. 18. § 19.

No parish-apprentice can be compelled or permitted to enter into his Majesty's sea-service till he arrives at the age of eighteen years. 2 and 3 Anne, c. 6. § 4.

Persons voluntarily binding themselves apprentice to sea-service, shall not be impressed for three years from the date of their indentures. Bul no persons above eighteen years of age shall have any exemption or protection from his Majesty's service, if they have been at sea before

• See ante.

# In order that these men should he thus protected, it is necessary for the master to name them before they are impressed ; this is to be done by going before the mayor or other chief magistrate of the place, who is to give the master a certificate, in which is contained the names of the particular men whom he thus nominates : and this certificate will be their protection. 5 T. R. 417.

they became apprentices. 2 and 3 Anne, c. 6. § 15. ; 4 Anne. c. 19. § 17.; and 13 Geo. II. c. 17. g 2.

All persons coming under the four following descriptions, employed in the fisheries of these kingdoms, are exempted from being impressed, viz.

Ist. Masters of fishing vessels or boats who, either themselves or

their owners, have or, within six months before applying for a protection, shall have had one apprentice or more, under sixteen years

of age, bound for five years, and employed in the business of fishing on the coasts, or in any of the rivers. 2dly. All such apprentices, not exceeding four to every master or

owner of any fishing vessel of thirty tons or upwards; and two to every vessel or boat under thirty tons; during the time of their apprenticeship, and till the age of twenty years, they continuing, for the time, in the business of fishing only. 3dly. One mariner (besides the master and apprentices) to every

fishing vessel of ten tons or upwards, employed on the sea

coast, during his continuance in such service. 4thly. Any landman, entering and employed on board such ves

sel, for two years from his first going to sea, and to the end of the voyage then engaged in, if he so long continue in such

service.* On affidavit being made before some justice, and laid before the Admiralty, that the persons therein named and described come within some or one of the four above descriptions ; (inserting the tonnage of the vessel, and port she belongs to; the name and description of the master; the age of every such apprentice, and term he is bound for, with the date of his indenture ; and the name, age, and description of every such mariner and landman, with the time of such landman's first going to sea ;) the Admiralty shall thereupon, unless they suspect the truth of such affidavit, (which in such case they are to inquire into,) grant, without any fee, a separate protection to every such person; and if any such protected person shall be impressed, ercept in the cases of an actual invasion of these kingdoms, or imminent danger thereof, and signified by some order of his Majesty or his privy council to the Lords of the Admirally, and detained, after producing such protection, the officer who so detains him shall forfeit 201. to the party so impressed, not being an apprentice; and if an apprentice, then to his master. But no inaster or owner of such fishing vessel is knowingly to harbour a deserter from the king's service, under penalty of 201. 2 Geo. III. c. 15. amended by 50 Geo. III. c. 108.

No fisherman using the sea shall be taken to serve as a mariner by the king's commission ; but such commission shall be first taken to two justices of the peace next adjoining, that the said justices may choose out such sufficient number of able men as shall be contained in the said commission. 5 Eliz. c. 5. § 43.

The four following descriptions of persons are likewise erempted from being impressed, viz. every person being fifty-five years of age or upwards ; every person not having arrived to eighteen years of age :

• A keelman navigating the river Tyne down to the port of Shields is deemed te be liable, and cannot afterwards bring himself within the protection of the 13 Geo. II. c. 17.8 2. which exempts every person not having before used the sea, and who shall bind himself apprentice to serve at sea, from being impressed for three years from such binding. Ex parte Sofily, E. R. i. 406.
