Daily Courant (Newspaper) - June 22, 1730, London, Middlesex The Daily Courant. Monday, June ix, 1730. PARIS. The Remonftrance of the Parliament of Rouen to the %tng, againji the R^gt/lring of his Majefty's Declaration in favour -of the Co>fli~ tut ion Uoigenuus, is a very remarkable Piece\ and tho* a Letter of Command from the Kjng enforced the fgid Rjgiftry, and prevented this Remonftrance's talking Place, it has nevertheless been made publicly, and is as follows. SIRE, WE fhould think ourfelves wanting in the Fidelity we owe to your Majefty's Sacred Perfon, and in the particular Confidence with which you are pleafed to honour us, by expecting from us the Execution of your Will ; fhould we diffemble the juft Caufe of Fear, which your new Declaration concerning the Conftitution Vnigenitus has given us* " In the Year 1714, when this Bull, authorized by the late King your Great Grandfather's Letters Patents, firft appear'd in ail the Parliaments of your Kingdom, every body was aftonilh'd at the Condemnation they found therein, of the 01 ft Proposition taken out of the Book of Moral Reflexions. The Magistrates, confidering the Rights of the Crown, and the Sacred Maxims of our Forefathers, thought it their Duty to erect Bulwarks againft the Introduction of that Decree into France, capable of withstanding the Pretentions of the Vltramontanes. " Your Majelty, always zealous for the Interefts of Religion, apply'd all your Care, in 1720, to procure the Peace of the Church : You admitted the Explanations which were drawn up by the Clergy of your Kingdom ; and you lent us your Declaration, to make this Peace known to all your Subjects. Your Parliaments published it, Sire; but being perfuaded, that the Finishing of that Work depended upon the Court of Rome, they thought it their Duty to guard themfelves againft the. Tenets of that Court, if rhey fhould refufe to contribute to the fulfilling of your Pious Intention. " And therefore, in the Arrets of 1714. and 1720, for regiftring the Conftitution Vnigenitus, there were wife and prudent Reftrictions. " Upon reading the Beginning of your new Declaration, wherein you commend your Courts of Parliament for having done their Duty in maintaining the Rights of your CrowD, and the Liberties of the Gallican Church ; we flattered ourfelves, Sire, that we (hould meet with nothing that fhould binder our Regiftring the Dif-pofitions of that Declaration. Neverthe-lefs, the IITd. Article revived our Appre-henfions : If that Article feems at firft fight to confirm the Letters Patents of the 14th of February 1714, and your Declaration of the 41b. of Anguft 1710, with the Restrictions contained in the Arrets of Registration j it at the fame time or- �< � *<� � 1 c< tt tt <( it *t � � tl <( ti tt �( ti if � it c cc tt tt tl tt it if t< tt it tt tl tt tt tt it it it tt tt it tt tt it It tt tt tt tt tt tt tt ti " dains, that the Conftitution Vnigenitus " (hall be inviolably obferved, according to " its Form and Tcnour. This iaft Difpofi-" tion, Sire, feems point-blank to contra-" diet the other ; for to ordain that this " Bull fhall be obferved according to its " Form and Tenour, is as much as to com-" mand, that it (hall be obferved in the " fame Manner as it was publiflied by the " Court of Rome- that is, free from all " Reftrictions. " Moreover, the fame Article makes the " Bull a Law of the Church and State, and " enjoins all your Subjects to pay it that " Refpect and Submillion, which are due to the Judgment of the Univerfal Church in " Point of Doctrine. " Siret The Safety of your Sacred Perfon, theRigbts and Independency of your Crown, and the Liberties of the Church of your Kingdom, ought not to be grounded upon *' Equivocal Difpofitions, which leave room " for Constructions that may be'ferviceable " to the Vltramontanes, in Support of their ( nd difpofing of their Crowns as he pleafed, came from " the fame Hand and the fame Power that publiflied the Conftitution Vnigenitus. What DifEcultier, Sire, nay what difmal Confequences may we expect, if the Subjects, being accentomed to look upon the Conftitution as a Law of. the Univerfal Church in point of Doctrine, as jt is call'd in your Declaration, Should perfuade themfelves, that there are certain Occasions wherein they may fall off from their Fidelity to their King 1 We have but too many Instances of this. If you will pleaie to call to mind what was done in the popedoms of Paul IV. Pius V. Sixcus V. tt tt tt i* and Gregory XIV. what abominable Pre-dictions will you there behold ! Buc no, Sire, permit us to fave your Majefty the " Recital of tbofe dire Events ! [The Remainder hereafter. 2 Teflerday arriv'd the Mail due from France. Paris, June 28. N.
