“His Majesty commands us to express to you His deep Regret that the Exertions of the Emperor of Austria against the Ambition and Violence of France have proved unavailing, and that His Imperial Majesty has been compelled to abandon the Contest, and to conclude a disadvantageous Peace. Although the War was undertaken by that Monarch without Encouragement on the Part of His Majesty, every Effort was made for the Assistance of Austria which His Majesty deemed consistent with the due Support of His Allies, and with the Welfare and Interest of His own Dominions.
2 ** An
Lords Commisfioners Speech.
“An Attack upon the Naval Armaments and Esta“blishments in the Scheldt afforded at once the Prospect “ of destroying a growing Force, which was daily becoming more formidable to the Security of this Country, and of diverting the Exertions of France from the important Objects of reinforcing her Armies “ on the Danube, and of controuling the Spirit of Re“sistance in the North of Germany. These Considera“tions determined His Majesty to employ His Forces in “ an Expedition to the Saheldt. “Although the principal Ends of this Expedition have not been attained, His Majesty confidently hopes that Advantages materially affecting the Security of His Majesty's Dominions in the farther Prosecution of the War, will be found to result from the Demolition of the Docks and Arsenals of Flushing. “This important Object His Majesty was enabled to accomplish, in consequence of the Redućtion of the Island of Walcheren by the Valour of His Fleets and “ Armies. “His Majesty has given Directions, that such Documents and Papers should be laid before you as He trusts will afford satisfactory Information upon the Subject of this Expedition. “We have it in Command to state to you, that His Majesty had uniformly notified to Sweden His Ma“jesty's decided Wish, that in determining upon the “ Question of Peace or War with France and other Con“ tinental Powers, she should be guided by Confidera“tions resulting from her own Situation and Interests; while His Majesty, therefore, laments that Sweden should have found it necessary to purchase Peace by “ considerable Sacrifices, His Majesty cannot complain “ that she has concluded it without His Majesty's Participation. It is His Majesty’s earnest Wish, that no Event may occur to occasion the Interruption of those “ Relations of Amity, which it is the Defire of His “ Majesty, and the Interest of both Countries, to pre“ serve. ** We have it farther in Command to communicate to you, that the Efforts of His Majesty for the Protection of Portugal have been powerfully aided by the Confidence which the Prince Regent has reposed in His Majesty, and by the Co-operation of the Local Government, and of the People of that Country. “The Expulsion of the French from Portugal by His Majesty's Forces under Lieutenant General Lord
Viscount Wellington, and the glorious Victory obtained
Animation and Vigour to the Councils and the Arms
“ Gentlemen of the House of Commons,
“His Majesty has directed us to inform you, that He “ has ordered the Estimates for the current Year to be “laid before you. His Majesty has directed them to “ be formed with all the Attention to Economy which “ the Support of His Allies and the Security of His “ Dominions will permit. And His Majesty relies upon “ your Zeal and Loyalty, to afford him such Supplies “ as may be necessary for those effential Objećts.
“ He commands us to express how deeply He regrets “ the Pressure upon His Subjećts, which the protracted “Continuance of the War renders inevitable.
“My Lords, and Gentlemen, “We are commanded by His Majesty to express His Hopes that you will resume the Consideration of the State of the inferior Clergy, and adopt such farther Measures upon this interesting Subject as may appear “ to you to be proper. “We have it farther in Command to state to you, that the Accounts which will be laid before you, of the Trade and Revenue of the Country, will be found highly satisfactory. Whatever temporary and partial Inconvenience may have resulted from the Measures which were direéted by France against those great Sources of our Prosperity and Strength, those Measures have wholly failed of producing any permanent or “general Effe&t.
“ The inveterate Hostility of our Enemy continues to “ be directed against this Country with unabated Ani“mosity and Violence. “To guard the Security of His Majesty's Dominions, and to defeat the Designs which are meditated against Us, and Our Allies, will require the utmost Efforts of Vigilance, Fortitude, and Perseverance. “In every Difficulty and Danger, His Majesty con“ fidently trusts, that He shall derive the o effectual “Support, under the continued Blessing of Divine “ Providence, from the Wisdom of His Parliament, the Valour of His Forces, and the Spirit and Determination of His People.”
The House being informed, “That Mr. Maryon, from “ the Deputy Clerk of the Crown in Ireland, attended with the Writs and Returns for electing a Temporal Peer of Ireland in the Room of Charles Earl of Nor“ manton deceased, with the Certificate of the Clerk of “ the Crown in Ireland annexed to them;”
He was called in ; and, being sworn and examined, acquainted their Lordships, “That he received the same “ from the said Deputy Clerk of the Crown in Ireland,
“ and that they were now in the same Condition as when
“ he received them;” and then delivering the same at the Bar, He was directed to withdraw.
Which Certificate was read, and is as follows; (videlicet)
