After which, his Majesty made the following most Gracious Speech.
My Lords and Gentlemen,
THE Zeal and Dispatch, with which you have gone through the publick Business, during the course of this Session, are undeniable proofs of your steady Regard to the Welfare of your Country, and consequently the most acceptable Testimonies of your duty and Affection to me. The powerful Assistance, which you have given me for carrying on the just and necessary War, in which I am engaged, is the best means of reducing Our Enemies to Reason; and the Vigour and Earnestness, which you have so seasonably shewn for the defence of the house of Austria, and the maintenance of the Balance and Liberties of Europe, must give the greatest Encouragement to our Friends-. These are the methods to secure to this Nation that Weight and Influence abroad, which its natural Strength and situation entitle it to.
Gentlemen of the House of Commons,
It is with particular Satisfaction, I acknowledge your Readiness and Application, in raising the Supplies for the service of the current Year; which you have done with so just a Regard to the present Exigencies of the Publick, as shew you to be the true Representatives of my faithful Commons.
My Lords and Gentlemen,
I cannot part with this Parliament, without publickly returning you my Thanks, for the many eminent Instances you have given me, of your Fidelity and Affection to my Person and Government; your fixed Resolution to maintain the Protestant Succession in my Family; and your unshaken Adherence to the true Interest of your Country. You have, with the most becoming Spirit, and Firmness, exerted yourselves in vindicating and defending the Honour of my Crown, and the undoubted Rights of Navigation and Commerce belonging to my Subjects; and enabled me to revenge those Wrongs and Insults, which, contrary to the Faith of Treaties, had been committed against both. In so critical a Conjuncture, you have supported the National Credit, and strengthened the Hands of my Government, to a Degree exceeding the Expectations of those, who wished well to us; and to the manifest Disappointment of such, as envied our Prosperity. At the same Time, you have demonstrated to all the World, that Great Britain is in a Condition, not only to defend herself, but also to afford a due Support to her Allies, and the common Cause of Europe. As such a Conduct must give a lasting Reputation to this Parliament, so it will be the Subject of Emulation to those which shall come after it.
I will immediately give the necessary Orders for calling a new Parliament. There is not any Thing I set so high a Value upon, as the Love and Affection of my People, in which I have so entire a Confidence, that it is with great Satisfaction I see this Opportunity put into their Hands of giving me fresh Proofs of it in the Choice of their Representatives.
On the present Establishment depends the Continuance of our excellent Constitution in Church and State; and in this Constitution consists the Security of the present Establishment: Nothing can hurt the one, that will not, in Proportion, undermine and weaken the other. For my Part, the uniform Preservation of both, and the Maintenance of the Religious and Civil Rights of all my Subjects, have been and ever shall be my constant Care. Those who distinguish themselves by persevering in these Principles, shall always find my Countenance and Favour; and by invariably pursuing these wise and honest Measures, we may entertain the best grounded Hopes that, under the Protection of the Divine Providence, the Happiness of Great Britain will be perpetuated to Posterity.
Then the Lord Chancellor, by his Majesty's Command said,
My Lords and Gentlemen,
It is his Majesty's Royal Will and Pleasure, that this Parliament be prorogued to Tuesday the Twelfth Day of May next, to be then here held; and this Parliament is accordingly prorogued to Tuesday the Twelfth Day off May next.
The following is the Extract of a Letter from Pampelona, April 1. wrote by a Gentleman who sail'd from hence before Christmas last for Bristol, and there embark'd for Guinea, but was taken by a Spanish Privateer, and carried to said Place.
Sir, I have not had an Opportunity of writing to you since I receiv'd your Favour, which was the Beginning of January, being ever since confin'd in a Dungeon with 19 more.
The first of December, my Captain and 6 more made their Escape, I was to have been one of them, but going over the Wall, fell from the Top to the Bottom, which is 40 Feet, I lay in the Trench that Night, but next Morning was seen by the Guard, and taken to the Hospital, and there continued till I was well, then brought to the Castle and confined in an Arch under the Garrison Wall, none being allowed to speak to me but the Goaler, and that once in two Days, when he brought me Bread and Water: One Hickey, a Lieutenant in this Service, used to come to me every Night, had it not been for him, I must have starved : At this time all the Prisoners were confin'd on Account of the Captain getting away: I continued three Weeks in that Dungeon: The Irish Clergy made Interest with an Irish General who came here from Madrid, on some Affairs, who prevail'd on the Vice-King to set us at Liberty, which was done next Day.
Three Days after, three Prisoners and I, having an Opportunity, got over the Wall, and marched to the Borders of France, but were taken by Soldiers who were in pursuit of Deserters, and brought back in Irons. Our Necks were put into the Stocks for eight Days, and then we were put into a Prison with eighteen more; we four were confined Day and Night, but the rest had their Liberty all Day: Soon after, having gain'd a Remittance from Bilboa, and others having Credit at large, we agreed with the Goaler for 60 Pistoles to go along with us to France. We got over the Wall about Two in the Morning, the next Night we reached the Frontiers, where we engaged 12 Grenadiers who were sent after us, they marching by Day got there before us : We took their Arms from them, and bound them, but we had not marched one Mile, when we saw the Grenadiers with a Body of Peasants, who had loosed them, coming up, we soon engaged; the Battle continued about half an Hour, when the commanding Officer came up, ordered the Soldiers and Countrymen to leave off, two of our Men were killed, three of the Grenadiers and two of the Countrymen: Had not the Officer come up, we should have been killed, there were but four more Muskets loaded:· The Officer rid before to alarm the Country : Our Guide got away when we were engaged.
We were brought back and put into my old Lodging, and there continued till Yesterday,
There is an Order from Madrid to march us Jaragossa 140 Miles from this, and it is said, from thence we are to go to Barcelona, and from Barcelona to Mahone, to be exchanged for the Spanish Prisoners there, and to go on board the English Fleet. King George allowed every Prisoner here since the First of March, six pence a Day.
It has been reported these few Days past, that Captain Davison, of the Charming Molly, who arrived here from Antigua on Tuesday last, brought an Account of the taking the Havanna by Admiral Vernon, and that he made Oath of it before a Magistrate: This Report is without Foundation; but he brought the following Letter to a Merchant here from his Correspondent at Antigua.
Antigua, March 9. There has been a strong Report here for these ten Days past, that Admiral Vernon has taken the Havanna. This News comes by Mr. Pherris, who lately arrived from Santa Cruz*; he says he had it from the Governor of that Place, who had it from the Governor St. Thomas** and that Governor was informed of it by the Governor of St. Domingo***. Some give Credit to the Report, and others do not, but all wish it.
* An Island belonging to the Dutch. ** Belonging to the Danes *** Belonging to the French.
By a private Letter from London, dated the 23d of April, We are daily in Expectation of News from America, the French say they lost 200 Men out of the four Ships which were .engaged off of Hispaniola, and the Marquis de Bethuen, who was second Captain, was also killed. As we had not above 40 killed and wounded In that Action, we don't suppose the French lost near the Number they mention; but exaggerate the matter, in order to form a Complaint. 'Tis confidently reported, they lost 1500 Men by Sickness and Want in their Voyage home, and many of their Ships, which were old before, render'd quite unserviceable; one large Ship founder'd at Sea, and another is still missing, which they fear has suffered the same Fate.
