esprits une agression de cette espèce, on n'a pas vu sans étonnement les Soldats et les Miliciens conserver la plus sévère discipline, sans abuser de leur triomphe, et sans oublier jamais dans leur ressentiment que les Auteurs de ce fatal évènement étaient des Espagnols. Après ce qui étoit arrivé il n'etait ni prudent ni même possible de faire rester les Agresseurs dans la Capitale, et de continuer à leur confier la garde de la Personne sacrée du Roi, objet de la vénération et du respect du Peuple Espagnol. Aussi a-t-on remis ce dépôt précieux à un Régiment, modèle de subordination et de discipline, et les Troupes aussi bien que le Peuple, ont connu et respecté l'immense distance qui sépare une Garde Royale, insubordonnée. et responsable devant la Loi de ses égaremens, qui la sépare, dis-je, de l'Auguste Personne du Roi, déclarée sacrée et inviolable par la Loi Fondamentale de l'Etat. Jamais Sa Majesté et Sa Royale Famille n'ont pu recevoir plus de preuves d'attachement et de respect que dans la crise d'hier ; jamais le Peuple Espagnol n'a manifesté avec plus d'évidence sa loyauté et ses vertus.

Cette simple rélation de faits, notoires par leur nature, et dont il existe tant de témoignages, dispense de toutes réflexions ultérieures sur l'objet important auquel se rapporte la Note de Vos Excellences et de vos Seigneuries, datée d'hier. Le Gouvernement de Sa Majesté Catholique n'a pu manquer d'ailleurs d'en apprécier dignement les sentimens, et de reconnaître que le but en est sous tous les rapports aussi utile qu'intéressant. Je renouvelle, &c.

NOTIFICATION of the Government of Spain, respecting

the Sailing of a British Squadron, for the purpose of taking Reprisals upon Spanish Commerce.20th December, 1822.

(Translation.) The Minister of the Interior to the Political Chiefs of Departments, &c. (Circular.)

Madrid, 20th December, 1822. The English Government having claimed an indemnity for various Captures, made from the Merchants of that Nation, from the Year 1804 up to the present time, and also for various other damage occasioned to English property, assigning for this purpose a space of time within which it is impossible for the 'King to come to any determination upon the subject; therefore, until this can be effected, which will take place as soon as possible, in order to avoid the injury which is likely to result to the property of Spanish Merchants, the King commands me to declare to the Consulate, that there have sailed from the Ports of England various Ships of War destined for the Coasts of Terra Firma

and Porto Rico, with Orders to detain Spanish Vessels to the amount of the debt which the English Government has to claim. His Majesty hopes to terminate, in a just and amicable manner, an affair so nearly affecting the interests of the Subjects of both Nations. This important Notice is issued with a view to prevent the injury which may accrue during the interval which must necessarily elapse.

You will acquaint the Consulates in your Province with the present Notice.

GASCO. The Political Chiefs of Departments, Consulates, &c.

in Spain and the Colonies.
