State Papers.

SPEECH of the King to both Houses of the British Parliament, on the Opening of the Session, 5th February, 1822.

My Lords, and Gentlemen,

I HAVE the satisfaction of informing you that I continue to receive from Foreign Powers the strongest assurances of their friendly disposition towards this Country.

It is impossible for Me not to feel deeply interested in any event that may have a tendency to disturb the peace of Europe. My endeavours have therefore been directed, in conjunction with My Allies, to the settlement of the differences which have unfortunately arisen between the Court of St. Petersburgh and the Ottoman Porte, and I have reason to entertain hopes that these differences will be satisfactorily adjusted.

In My late visit to Ireland I derived the most sincere gratification from the loyalty and attachment manifested by all classes of My Subjects. With this impression it must be matter of the deepest concern to Me, that a spirit of outrage, which has led to daring and systematic violations of the Law, has arisen and still prevails in some parts of that Country.

I am determined to use all the means in My power for the protection of the persons and property of My loyal and peaceable Subjects; and it will be for your immediate consideration whether the existing Laws are sufficient for this purpose.

Notwithstanding this serious interruption of public tranquillity, I have the satisfaction of believing that My presence in Ireland has been productive of very beneficial effects; and all descriptions of My People may confidently rely upon the just and equal administration of the Laws, and upon My paternal solicitude for their welfare.

Gentlemen of the House of Commons,

It is very gratifying to Me, to be able to inform you, that during the last Year the Revenue has exceeded that of the preceding, and appears to be in a course of progressive improvement.
