LONDON. HOUSE o * L OR D S. Thursday, June 10. His Majefty came in ftate to the Houfej and being feated on the Throne, gave the Royal affent to feverai public and private bills. After which his Majefty made the following tnoft gracious fpecch to both Houfes of Parliament : My Lords, and Gentlemen, THE neceffary public bufinefs being hdw concluded, I think it figbj: to put an end to this Seffion of Parliament* > I have not hitherto-received the anfwer of the Court of Spain to the reprefentation which I have directed to be made at that Court, in fupport of the dignity of my crown, and of the" interefts of my people. I continue to entertain the ftrongeit defire for the maintenance of peace on juft and honourable grounds; but, under the prefent cir* cumftances, I feel it iridifpenfibly neceflary to proceed with expedition and vigour in thofe preparations, the objects of which have already re-reived your unanimous concurrence. The afTurances and conduit of my allies, on t^s interefting occafion, have mftnifefted in the moil fatisfadory manner their determination to M61 the engagements of the exifting treaties; and I trull that our mutual good underftanding and concert will be productive of the happieft effe&s in the prefent eonjundture of affairs in Europe. �-(� Gentlemen of the Houfe of Commons, I return you my particular thanks for the readi-nefs With which you granted the fupplies for. the correct fervice, antf for your unanimity and dif-patch in enabling me to take thofe meafuies which the prefent crifis has rendered neceflary. My Lords, and Gentlemen, As I think it may be of material convenience that the election of a new Parliament mould take place without delay, it is my intention forthwith to give directions for difiblving the prefent aoct for calling a new Parliament. But, in figriU fying to you this intention, I cannot omit to aflure ^pu of the deep and grateful fenfe wnich-Pmuft ever entertain of that affectionate and unlhaken le-yalty, that uniform and zealous regard for the true ptinciples of our invaluable Conllitution, and \ that unremitting attention to the happinefs and profperity of my people, which have invariably directed all your proceedings. The rapid increafe of our Manufactures, Commerce, and Navigation, the additional protection and fecurity afforded to the diftant pofleffions of the Empire, the provifions for the good government of India^the improvement oaf the public revenue, and tlie eftablifhment of a permanent fyftem for the gradual reduction of the National Debt, have furnilhed the belt proofs of your refolution in encountering the difficulties with which you had to contend, and of your fteadinefs and perfeverauce in thofe -meafures which were belt adapted to promote the eflentiai and lafting intereft of my dominions. The Loyalty and public fpirit, the induftry and enterprise of my fubjects, have feconded your exertions. On their fenfe of the advantages which they at prefent experience, as well as on their uniform and affectionate attachment to my Perfon and Government, I �ely for a continuance of that harmony and confidence, the happy effects of which have fo manifestly appeared during the prefent Parliament, and which muft at all times afford the fureft means of meeting the exigencies of war, or of cultivating with in creating benefit the bleffings of peace. Then the Lord Chancellor, by his Majefty's Command, faid : My Ldrds, and Gentlemen, It is his Majefty's Royal Will and Pleafure, that this Parliament be prorogued to Tuefday the third day of Augutl next, to be then here holden ; and this""Parliamen't is accordingly prorogued to Tuefday, the third day of Auguft next.
