Great Britain, without conscription, has no means of raising troops in any such proportion.
Few soldiers were obtained by the conscription, for the government was as weak as it was tyrannical.
The navy is recruited by conscription in the coast or maritime districts, which are divided into three naval captaincies-general, those of Ferrol, Cadiz and Cartagenaat the head of each being a vice-admiral.
The signal for a widespread rising was the introduction of conscription acts for the recruiting of the depleted armies on the eastern frontiers.
To the chamber of deputies exclusively belongs the initiation of all laws relating to the raising of money and the conscription of troops.
