   Stuart's Star And Evening Advertiser (Newspaper) - March 25, 1789, London, Middlesex                                tion of fucb events, as were^JWHfljdS^fne Legislature, to have had a more^jplr c'dmuum iu-Haeace -an the CoufHtution an^iwppiaefs of the country-That tai the ijfoh of May, for exam* pie, we were acctttoo^ift'tefobr^tc the ciofc of Civil difcord and the ftaftomhw of Government.  That of the truth and wi the principle of his intended. Motion therefore forbear to fp�ak� as* ftr niai of that truth, and a fciglier paiMfick on that wifdom, than any which he give would be found in the records of the Houfe, and, he-truftedbe might add, m the feelings of every geotletnatrto wboBt^frlifad the honour to addrefc himfelf. Mr. Beanfoy then proceeded to con confider the propriety of applying to the "Bye* volution the principle which he had thus de-, fcribed; he faid, it wan wowpceflary to remind the Home-of the lin^iflat importance of this great ~ evwif; drhrr with refpect to the magnitude of the evils efcaped, or. the. nature of the bleffiags which had followed1 the deliverance. He obferved, that the Hottfe were perfectly aware of the fituation in which the two countries that now compofe Great Britain at that time flood.-That in Scotland, words the moft innaceut, aswf the days of Nero?, hecame a capJtit^^nee^-TSat the Marquis "ngderamedtheKing's Mini J&Rp-^aat"torture was brought into common ufe as a aeeenary raachme of Government-and that the Parliament of Scotland/like the Senate of Rome, had declared; that abfolute power in the Sovereign was the fundamental law of the S.tSte: that the Houfe �^Teve  mtijfder. � - Thtts,' Mr. Beanfoy redfrottt the^UfHry of thu klng part of the- fervice of the day. Thfrisi', he obferved, the people would be in ftrvctedHn the nature of their rights, would be informed of . the danger to which tbofe rights had been exposed, and would be taught the miferies which the lofs of them would bring upon theit native land : and thus thp li berties of England would be protected from, the ruin which b&A attended the freedom of other fiates, and the conftitution he? rendered as independent as pofliWe of time and chance. Mr. Beanfoy, concluded, bye facing, that to cele-br^erbe Revolution was to acknowledge the |tions which we>owed to the authors of that �as event; atnd that when the titles of jand Devoofbire, of Doxfetft Argyll and and of their other benefactors, fhould be ly mentioaed, the people would feel flitrance, that if ever their- rights mould igjjijphe attacked, the defcendants- of thofe great men, forgetful like their anceftors, of the party .^t. Margaret's already, and he believed neither the Right Hon. Gentleman in the Chair, nor w diftinctions by which they might happen to be divided, would -cordially unite, and fo ttnlted, wottkrf&rm, an irrefiftable phalanx on the fick of virtue and their country. That to celebrate the revolution was alfo to remind' the people of the fingular obligations which they owed to the clergy of the eftablilhed. church ; that it was to remind them of the unfhaken integrity, the determined fortitude, theftedfaft seal with which, under trying circumflances, and in a fearful fea-fon, the bifhops fuftained their part; that it was jo remind them of the earneUnefs with whicli, in oppofition to their own immediate in terefts, the Difienters on that occafion fupported the eftabliflied Church, and facrificed religious deftructron to the cordiality of a civil union. And finally, that it was in reality to remindj them of a circumitance, the moft pleafing that could be brought to their recollection-the efforts of all ranks and elaffes of Englishmen in fupport of their common Rights and of the free ConfHtution of their Country! On all thefe grounds, he hoped that his Motion would not be unwelcome to the Houfe, when he afked leave, as he fhould now proceed to do, to bring in a Bill, '* To eftablifh a perpetual Anniver-" fary Thankfgiving to Almighty God, for " having, by the glorious Revolution, delivered ** this Nation from arbitrary power-'-and to '* commemorate annually the Confirmation of " the People's Rights." Lord Mulc Aster rofe to fecond $Ir*Beaufoy*� motion, and faid, his Hon. Friend had fo ably and fo amply explained the grounds and motives on which he wifhed to introduce his Bill, that he had left him no occafion to add a fingle fyllable on the fubject; he would therefore content himfelf with fecundiug his Hon. Friend's motion. Sir Richard Hm declared, it would be extraordinary indeed, if in the courfe of an hundred years a Britifh Houfe of Commons fhould not have difeovered the benefits of the Revolution. The Hon. Gentleman's motion, therefore, reminded him of the canonisation of the Popifh faints,! which generally took place fifty or an hundred j years after their death. Sir Richard defired, that in confequence of this obfervatifn, be might not be confidered as a perfon who diiliked the Revolution, or as unwilling to acknowledge the very great 3ncf important advantages that this eountry had derived from it. He was exceedingly thankful for both, and did not wifh to oppofe the religious Celebration of fo interefting an event; but, he feared, that if the Honourable Gentleman's Motion were adopted, inftead of a day of thankfgiving and prayer, the day would become^ a day of feaftbag and drunkennefs. Sir Richard faid, there was already a. Service of the Church fpecially appointed religioufly to commemorate the Revolution, and if the Clerk would turn to the Form of Prayer for the 5th of November, which followed the reading Pfalms in the Common Prayer Book, he would there find it. Mr. Hatfell read the Gun-powder Treafon Plot and form of Prayer, which directs fpecial Prayers of thankfgiving to benfed yearly Upon the fifth day of Nov. for the happy deliverance of K. James I. and the three eftates of England, from the moft traiterous and bloody intended mai&cre by gunpowder ; and alfo for the happy arrival of King William, on this day, for the deliverance of our Church and Nation." Mr. Hatsell alfo, at Sir Richard's defire, read a few lines of the.fever ' prayers in the fame fervice, mentioning Kir Villiam's happy arrival. Sir Richard refumed his argument, andad-dreffing himfelf peculiarly to the Speaker, faid, he was mope than any other Member interefted in.the motiqn ; fince, if it were carried,he would be obliged to recollect the day, and have to attend xmifretzt at St. Margaret's in his p?ntifi-calibus. On the 33th of January, the Speaker together with a noble an  by which, without lofs of blood, the"Sovereign who had abufad his powers, had vacated his kingly office, and an opportunity was gjven to. that family to afcend, the Throne, tiuder whbfe mild and aufpicious Government the country had fo long experienced the full perfection *�f national freedom, happinefs and profperity. The qUeftion was agreed to. STUART'S   STAR. L 0 N D Q AT, March 35. R0Y4L FAWLT.
