The Spaniards left behind them at Pa-via three Pieces of Cannon and Part of their Hofpitals. General Bernclau patted the Po at Cremona the 6th Inff. at Night, and Count Brown the Taro *at Colorno, in order to unite their Forces. The Prince of Litchtenftein has followed General Bernclau, in order to put himfelf at the Head of the Army on the other Side the Po, which con- | fills of about 40,000 Men, and receives_every Day frefh will -advantage-oufly diftinguifh this Seffion, in the Journals of Parliament ; and the concurrent Zeal, and attive Loyalty, of all his Ma-jefty's Proteftant Subjecls, of all L^wpiwha'tions throughout tbi| Kingdom, prove at once how fenfible and how de-lerving, they are of his Care and Protection. Even thofe deluded People, who fcarcely acknowledge his Government, feem by their Conduct, tacitly to have confefied the Advantages they enjoy under it. At my Return1 to hisfcMajefty's Prefence, I fhall not fail, moft faith* fully to report thefe Truths, iincethe moft faithful, will be at the fame time, the moi favourable Reprefcntation. The Rebellion which rather difturb'd* than endanger'd the King's Government, has besn defeated, tho' not yet totally fupprefs'd ; but as thofe flagitious Parricides, who were abandon'd enough to avow,' and defperate enough to engage in, the Cahfe of Popery and Tyranny, have already been repuls'd and purfued by the Valour and Activity, of his Royal Highnefs the Duke, there is the ftrongelt Reafon to believe that he will foon compleat the Work which he has fo glprioufly begun, andieftor* the Tranquility of the Kingdom. This Attempt therefore, te fhake his Majefty's Throne, will ferve to eftablifh it the more firmly; fince all Europe muft now know the unanimous Zeal and Affection of his Subjects, for the Defence and Support of his Perfon and Government; and thofe Hopes are at laft extinguifh'd with which the Pretender has fo long flatter *df and (ask now appears) deceiv'd himfelf; even the mariner in which he has been affifted by thofe Powers, who encouraged him ' to the Attempt, muft convince him, that he has now been, what he ever will be, only the occafional Tool of their Politicks, not the real Object of their Care. Gentlemen of the Houfe ofComnimt, I have the King's Commands to thank you inhisName, for the Unanimity and Difpatch, with which you have granted theiriecefiary Supplies for the Support of the Sfta-blifhmeht ; you may depend upon their being applied with the utmoft Exactnefs and Frugality. I muft not omit my own Acknowledgments for the particular Confidence yon have placed in me, by leaving to my Care and Management, the great Sum that you voluntarily voted for National Arms, and for the fortifying of the Harbour of Corke ; the confiderable Saving which will appear upon thofe two Articles, as well in the Intereft upon the Loan, as in the Application of the Principal, will, 1 hope, prove that I have been truly fenfible of the Truft re*-poled in Me. The Affiftance which You have given to the Proteftant Charter-Schools, is a moft Prudent, as well as a moft Com' paffionate Charity; and I do very earneftly recommend to Your conftant Protection and Encouragement, that Excellent Institution, by which fuch a confiderable Number of unhappy Children, are Annually refcued from the Mifery that always^ and the Guilt that commonly accompanies un� inftructed Poverty and Idlenefs. M} Lords and Gentlimen, Though Great-Britain has, in the courfeof this Century, been often molefted by Infurrectic*ns at home, and Invai fions from Abroad, this Kingdom has happily, and de-fervedly enjoy'd that uninterrupted Tranquillity, which Trade and Manufactures, Arts and Sciences, require for their Improvement and Perfection. Nature too has bseft f peculiarly favourable to this Country, whofe temperate ? Climate, and fruitful Soil, do invite and would reward Care and Induftry. Let me therefore moft ferioufly recommend to you, in your private as well as in yqur pub-lick Capacities, the utmoft Attention to thofe important Objects, which at once enrich, ftrengthen, and adorn a Nation. They will flourifh wherever they are cultivated, and they are always beft cultivated by the Indulgence, the Encouragement, and above all, by the Example of Perfbns of Superior Rank. -. , I cannot conclude,without repeating my heaftieft thank* to you for your Kmd Addreffes, in which you exprefs your Approbation of my Conduct. My Duty to the King who wifhes the Intereft and Haroineft of all his Sohiects. eatl'd ;
