But Ihei^ay of Tliey were cvoEralulaline'tloinselves with }(tlt$f^4�iiVrjo( hopes, when, at Ihe same time Ihal the aacrilegiuos projerl of exiiaguisbinir your sHcreil rights wag conceived in ihe bosufii of the nation, a vile impostor peifidiuosly introduced his hostile legions, and wrested from, the arms-of tbe faithful Spaniards their beloved .Monarch al the very moment when he bad just been placed oil the llinine of his glorious proge. nilors. The Spanish lion was tb^ ruused, and a general and uuiform cry gave spirit and vigour 10 the valorous sous of Pelayo ; and while Ihe brave warriois advanced with their breasts of hroDze, and expelled Ihe tyrant's liorta from their native land, the fathers of the country, who bad been calleil Upon by the general voice of the provinces, re-esiahlislied the Ci>nslilulioii of llie Spanish monarchy, which, by solemnly ileclarini: the person of Ihe King sacred and inviulnble, has mure firinty fixed Ihe cniwn on your Majesty's rojul head,, has secured you. agsinsf Ibe artilices of any favourite, and. thus enables your Majesty lu act more freely fur the heoeiit of your people and the welfare of ihe stale. . " The worthy sous of the country conceivetl, that Ibry could nut make a better return to the confidence with which ibe provinces honoured thcin, nor offer lo their King a more arc'pUhle tribute, than tu consolidate a vacillsting throne, by placing it on the broad basis of a fundamental law, which, being the legacy of our ancestors, and the expression of wis-doni, justice, and the publie will, closed Ihe dour equally against vile Battery and unju�l aggrosiun. It secured the administration of justice, established a just system uf public economy, and sanctioned Ihe respect, obedience, and ve-urratiou, due to the laws and.the royal anihurily. Thus i'eit Ihe representatives of the nation in Cadiz. I saw them, Sire, send np deep sighs lo Heaven for the ernel captivity of their Kiug! I saw Ibrin, like'orphans, shedding tears of sorrow and anguish, and, humbled before the Lanib of God, prayiug for the return of so amiable a father lo his numerous and discuusolste family ! I saw them, overwhelmed wiih j.oy and delight, give veni to their oppressed hearts when Ihi y learned that the Almighty bad listened to their fervent supplications, aud that the tutelary angel of Spain bad descended to break.the.ehaiii^ imposed by tyrfnuy! SncU acre their generous seiiiiinents, when sordid interest, crafty ambiiiuii, 'alrociunscalHmny,Bnd insatiable veugeauce,after mediiuiing in obscurity their detestable plots, dnred lu approach the throne, and sacrilegiously profane the sanctuary of inaje�iy. But, Sire, let ns spread a veil over tbuse melancholy proofs ufhuiiiau weakness. -� - _ " Al length the happy day arrived when a bright star arose on Ihe Spanish horizon, which dissipated the thitk cloutis foriyed by Intrigue and malevolence, and sacred truth shone forth with a brilliancy wiiicb excited Ihe adiniratiou of some, Ihe respect sf others, the cuiifiisionuf many ,''audr Ibe convic-lion of all. Happy Spain again sees assembled ihu^e Cortes which rendered the reigns of her Alpliunsos and her Ferdinands so glorious'} aud Ihe must viriuuus of tia. lious-^forgettiug wrongs, pardoning injuries-is solely em. ployed in le-oslahlishing a couslilutiusal GuVerniiient, in. preserving the purt'ly of her holy religion, and in giving lesiiniiiiiies of giatitade ami veneraiiou lo her King, now st-ated on his august llirone amidst Ihe natiuiidl Coo-sress, after having taken a Sidenin oath, by which he is made greater ibnii the son of Philip w:<8 by the conquest uf Oriental kingdoms I O luuenaniniuus King! the noble and loyal Spaniards are sensilile of lite numerous evils from which yon have saved ihem by this generous act, by which Ihe genius of Evil, nrepared tu light up Ihe ilame of discord among us, is ciusheil. All hope ihal every peruiciuns germ will be extinguished, and thut eternal peace and cuucortl will take root 111 their stead. Lei tbe fears, jealousies, ai,d distrusts, which criminal souls have excited iu tbe heart uf the br-bt of Kings, for ever disa^rpear, ami all unite in siirronnd-iug the throne with that fralrrnul alliance which secures order, produces plenty, inaintains justice, and preserves peace. And permit nie. Sire, the faithful organ of this Congress, aud of ihe naliou it represents, to preseol to you the due hiMnage uf its fidelity, aud uf the hunuuralile seulimeuts by which it is animated. "As our illnstriona ancestors always were Ihe firmest s'lip. purl ufilie thruue and the munarch,so tbeaaine Spain, aluay-i ready lo give brilliant lesl|inouies uf loyally and lovclo her Kings, solemnly promises you that her suns, who have ilis-plajed iu war more sanguinary examples of fidelity thai, were koown to past generations, will in^ke sacrifices worthy of Spanish heroes, and Ihe admiration of future ages." His IVIajesty replied in the lutlowing terms: - " 1 accept the expressions and seniinienis uf luve and loyalty which the Curies manifests towards me through the organ of its PieaidenI; and 1 hope, through lis nsKistaucP. tu see Ihe nation I have Ihe glory to govern free and'happy." Iinrnedialeiy after bis Majesty read with a cleur intelligible voice, mid with all the diguity becuin-iiig his character, the following !<peech :- *' Gentlemen Deputies, " At length bos arrived the day, the object of my ardept wishes, 00 which I see myself snrruunded by the representatives uf the heroic aud.generuus Spanish naliou, and in which a solemn oath has Completely identified my interests and those of my family with the interests of my people. *� When excess of evils produced the clear 'mauifestatiou of the voice of the naliou, formerly obscured by lamentable circumstaH'ces which outfit lo be erased from our memories, 1 immediately delermiued to embrace Ihe desired system, and lo lake the oath lo the political constitution of tbe Monarchy sanctiunid by the general and extraordimuy Cortes in the year 1812. Then did the Crown as well as Ihe ualiuu receive ils legitimate rights, iny resululion being no less spuutaoeous and free than cuufurmable 10 my own interests and those of Ihe S^ianish |ieuple, whose happiness has never ceased lo be Ihe object uf my sincerist wishes, Aly heart thus undissolubly united with the hearts of my subjecis, who are also niy children, Ihe future presents to me only agreeable images of confidence, luve, and prosperity. " With what kaiisfaction must the grand spectacle be con-templaled, bilbrrtu unexampled in bislury,of a magnanimous uatiun, which has passed front one putitlcal sia.te tu another without convulsiou or violence, sulijecling her enthusiasm to ihe guidance uf reason, ander circumstances which have covered with mourning, and inundated with tears, Olhet less I'urlnnale countries! " The general aliemion of Eurdpe- is now directed tu the proceedings of the Coiigress which represents this higbly-tavonred nation.
