to decrease soon after midnight. In New-street, the depth
of the stream, or rather torrent, may be very moderately

Tis being the last day of the Session, soon aftcr two

the pur, ose of proroguing the Parliament with a Speech
from the Throne,
The artival of the Prince Regert in the Royal Caam-

House were previously occupicd by a large assemblage of
Ladivs of the first distinction, ‘The Russian, Spanish and
Portuguese Ambassadors, were “pon a bench on the right
f the Throne; aud a considerable number of Peers and
Judges were also assembled in their robes.
The Prince Regent then entered, and took his seat on

side of him, with their different emblems of office. The
Karl of Liverpool, a> Prine Minister, bore the Sword of
State. The Prince Regent himself was in military uni-
The Usher of the Black Rod then proceeded to sum-
mon the attendance of the House of Commons, the Mem-
bers of which, with the Speaker at their head, soon after
appeared at the bar, when the Speaker addresed the
Prince Regent as follows :—
May it Please your Royal Highness,
-We, his Majesty’s most dutiful and loyal subjects, the
Commons of Great Britain and Ireland, in Parliament as.
sembled, have closed the supplies for the service of the
present year; and reflecting upon the various transactions
which have come before us, we look back with satisfaction
upon those which concern our domestic policy ; enter-
taining also a coufident hope im the prosperous issue of
View original tioce great even's which must regulatce the settlement of
our foreign relatians,
Under the pressure of great burdens at home, and the
still continuing necessity for great exertions, a plan hae
been devised and executed, which, by a judicious and skil-
ful arrangement of our finances, will for a considerable
period postpone or greatly mitigate the demands fur new
(axation, and at the same time materially accelerate the
finalexunction of the National Debt
Our reviving commerce alsu lovks forward to those new
ficlds of enterprise which are opening in the East; and af.
@cr long and labo ious discussions, we presume te hope,
that, (in conformity with the injuuetions delivered te us
by your Royal Highness at the commencement of the pre-
seul Session) such prudent and adequate arrangements
have been made for the future gevernment of the Britis!
possessions in India, as will combine the greatest advan.
tages of commerce and revenuc, and provide also for the
lasting prosperity and happiness of that vast and popu-
lous portion of the British Empire.
But, sir, these are not the only subjects to which one
attention has been called; other momeutuns changes have
been proposed for onr consideration, Adhermg, however
to those laws by which the Throne, the Pariiament, and
the Government of chis country, are made fundamentally

realm ;-—willing as we are, nevertheless, and as,
I trust, we ever shail be, to allow the largest scope to re.

following the munificent example of the last Parliament,
we have continued the same aonual grant for improving
the value of its smaller benefices; and we have at the

in the cause of national liberty, we mast, neverthcless, put
forth our whole strength, and maincain with our ancient
superiority upon the ocean, those warnvime rights which
we have resolved never to surrender.
ut, Sic, whatever doubts may cloud the rest of our
views and hopes, itis to the Peninsula that we look with
sentiments of unguestionsble delight and triumph. There
the world has seen two gallant and independent nations
resened from the inortal grasp of frand and tyranny by
British couacils and Briteh valour: and within the space
of five short years from the dawn of our successes at Ro.
ltrand Vimiera, the same ittustrious Conmmander has re.
ecived the tribute of our edusiration and gratitude for the
briliant pascage of the Duuro,—the hard-fought battle of
Valavera,—the day of Busaco,—the deliverance of Portu.
Fal—the Mural Crowns wou at Ciudad Rodrigo and Bad.
lyjoz,—the splendid victory of Salamanca,—and the de-
cisive overthrow of the Armies of France in their total rout
at Vittoria; decds which have made all Burope ring with

of nurival ed glory.
Sir,—Uhat the cause of this country, and of the world,

Our part tu strengthen the hands of his Majesty ’s Governe
incut, we have finished our sapplies with a large and !ibere
al aid, to enable your Royal Highness to take all such
measures as the emergencies of pullic affairs may require,
for disappointing or defeating the euterprizes and designs
of the enemy.
The Bill which I have to present to your Royal High.
ness for this purpose, is intituled **An Act for enabling
his Majesty to raise the sum of tive millions for the service
of Great Britain, and for ay plying the sum of 200,000].
for the service of Ireland.’’—
To which Bill his Majesty’s faithful Commons, with all
homility intreat hi: Majesty’s Royal Assent,
The Royal Assent was given in the usual form to this
Bill; and also to another, for the Regulation of Peniten.
tiary Houses.
The Prince Regent then delwered the
following Speech from the Throne :—
My Lords, and Gentlemen,
[cannot release you from your attendance in Parlia.
ment without repeating the expressions of my deep regret
at the continuance of his Majesty’s lamented indisposi-
The attention which you have paid to the public inter.
ests in the course of this Session demands my warmest ac.
know ledgements.
The splendid and signal successes which has attended
the commencement of the campaign in the Peninsula.—
the consumate skill and ability displayed by Ficld-Mar-
shal the Marquis of Wellington, in the progress of those
operations which have led to the great and decisive victo-
ry,—and the valour and intrepidity by which his Majes-
ty’s forces and those of his allies have been distinguished,
are as highly gratifying te my feelings as they have been
View original to those of the whole nation. While thase opcrations bave
added new lustre to the British arms, they afford the best
prospect of the deliverance of the Peninsula from the ty-
ranny and oppression of France; and they furnish the
most decisive proof of the wisdom of that policy which
ha induced, under every vicissiiude of fortune, ty per.
severe in the support of this clorious contest.
The entire failure of the French Ruler io his designs
ppon the Russian empiee, and the destruction of the
French army employed on that service, were followed by
the advance of the Russian forces, since joined by those
of Prussia, to the banks of the Elbe; and altho’ upon’
the renewal of the contest the allied armies have found

States of, America.
My desire to re-establish between the two countrics
those fricnd'y relations s6 important to their mutual in-
terest, continues inabated; but I cannot consent to pur-
chase the restoracion of peace by any sacrilice of the ma-
riime rights of the British em; ire.
Gentlh men of the llovse of Commons,
I thank you for the liberal provision you have made
for the services of the present year.
It is a great satisfaction to me to reflect that,, by the
regulatiou you have adopted for the redemption of the
national debt, you have established a system which will
not retard its ultimete liquidation, whilst at the same time
it provides for the vigorous prosecution of the war, with
the least practicable addition to the public burdens.
My Lords and (re¢ allem ”,
I entirely approve of the arrangements which you hase
made for the government of the isritish possessious i Lu
dia, and for the regulation of the British commerce in that
part of the word. ‘Chey appear to have been wisely fra.
med, with a few to the circumstances which have occur-
red since this subj ct was fast under the consideration ov!
Parliament. By these areangements you have preserycd
in its essentiol parts that system wf government which ey.
perience hus proved to be not less calculated to } rovide
for the happiness of the inhabitants of Ladia, than ty pro.

Downing-Street, July 19.
Dispatches of which the following are extracts, have
been this day received at Earl Bathurst’s Oflice, addressed
to his Lordship by Field Marshal the Marquis of Welling-
tun :—
Ostiz, July 3.
General Clausel having retired towards Logrono, after
finding our troops at Vittoria, oa the 22d of June, and
having ascertained the result of the action of the 21st, still
¢remained in the neighbourhoud of Logrono on the 24th,
and till late on the 25th, and had not marched for Tudela,
as I had been informed, when 1 wrote my dispatch of the
2ith ult.; [ cancejved, therefoae, that there was some
prospect of intercepting his retreat ; and efter sending the
ligh) troops towards Roncesvalles, in pursuit of the army
under Joseph Bonaparte, | moved the light, 4th, 3d, and
7th divisions, aud Colonel Grant’s and MajoreGeueral
View original Poasonby’s brigades of cavalry, towards Tudcla, and the
5th and 6th divisons, and the househuld and Gen. D'Or.
ban’s cavalry, from Vittoria‘to Salvatierra, towards Lon-
grono, in hopes that,A should be able to intercept Gen.
Clausel. Hl: howé,er, made scine extraordinary forced
marches, followed by Ga». Mina with his own cavalry
and the regiment of Spanish cavalry under the command of
Don Julian Sanchez, and arrived at Tudela on the evening
of the 27th. He there crossed the Ebro, but the Alcalde
having informed him that we were upon the road, he im-
mediately reecrossed, and marched towards Zaragossa,
Where, L understand from Gen. Mina, he has since arvived.
Gen. Mina is still following the enemy, and he has ta-
ken from him two pieces of cédnnon and some stores in
Tudela, and 300 prisoners, Licut.-Gen. Clinton has also
taken possession of five guns, which the enemy left at
Logrono. Iu the mean time the troops under the com.
mand of Licut.-Gen. Sir R. Hill have kept the blockade
vf Pampeluna, and have moved through the mountains to
the head of the Bidassoa, the enemy having entirely retr-
ed into France on that side.
I enclose the report which I have received from Lieut.-
Gen. Sir IT. Graham, of his actions with the enemy on the
24th and 25th of June, which appear to have been more
serious than f had imagined, when 1 addressed your Lord-
ship on the 28th ult.
Gen. Foy had with him the garrison of Bilboa, and
those of Mondragon and 'Lolosa, besides his division of
the Army of Portugal, and his force was eunsiderable.
It gives me great satisfaction to see that the Spanish aod
Portuguese troops mentioned by Sir I. Graham have con.
ducted themselves so well.
The Lient.-Gen, has been pleased to push on the enemy
by the high road, and has dislodged them trom all the
“trong positions which they had taken; and yesterday a
brigade of the army of Galicia, under the command of
Cen, Castanos, attacked and drove the enemy across the
Bidassoa, by tbe bridge of Irun. The enemy stiit main-
tained 4 post inv a strong stone Llock-house, which served
as a head to the bridge, and some troops in some loopholed
houses on the right of the Bibassoa: but Gen. Giron
having sent for some Spanish artillery, and Capt. Dabous-
dien’s brigade of ninespounders having been sext to thar
support, the fire of these guns obliged Ge cnemy to eva.
euated, and they blew up the block-house, anu burnt the
Sir Thomas Graham repoets, that in all these affairs the
Spanish troops have behaved remarkably well. ‘he gar.
rison at Passages, consisting of 150 men, surrendered on
the 30th, to the troops under Colonel Longa.
The enemy, on seeing some o} our ships off Deha, eva-
cuated the town and fort of Guetaris oa the first instant,
and the garrison went, by sea, to St. Sebastain. ‘This
lace is blockaded by laud by a detachment of Spanish
They have likewise evacuated Castro, aud the garrison
have gone by sea tg Santona.
In wy former reports, d have made your Lordship ac.
quainted with the progress of thearmy of reserve eof Aue
dalusia, under Gen the Conde del Abisbal, to join the
ariuy, and hea rividat Burgos co the 25th and 2uth ult.
When i.c caemy retired across the Ebro, previous ty
the battle of Wittora, they left a garrison of about 700
men in (he caste of Paucurbo, by which they -command.
ed aud rendered it impossible for us to use the great corm.
miumertion trom Vittoria to Bugos; T, therefore, co quest.
d tie Conde del Abisbal, on his march to Miranda, to
the nituself master of tie tawn and lower works, and to
bothade the place as closely as he could. L have not
Coivoa the cepert of his first operations, but I under.
ini he carried the Cown and lower fort by assault on the
$3 and fb have now the pleasure to enclose bis report
the final success of his operation, aud the cupy of a
ca ituletion, by which the garrison have surrendered,
Dhe diction and dispatco with which this place has been
subdued. ave highly ereditable to (ie Condes del Abisbal,
wa! oe ailicers and (rovys Uldet his command,
boom conesvned to inform your Lordship, that Lieut..
ven See J. Murcay raised the siege of Tatragona, bean.
not say on what day, and cmbark.d li troups. A geeat
proportion of the artullery and vere beft in the bat.
ieries, it appears that Marstia: sacl, with aconsider.
able body of troops, had mosc trom Valencia by Tortosa,
and Gev. Maurice Mathieu, v ith another corps, from the
ucighbourhood of Baccclona, fur the purpose of impeding
Sir John Murcray’s operations, which he did not think
himse!f sufficiently strong to continue. T have vot yet
received from Sir J. Murray the detailed accountof these
transacttons 5; Licut.-Gen. Lord Wiliam Bentinels, how.
ever, who had joined and had taken the command of the
army at the Col de Balaquer, on the 17th, had brought it
back to Alicant, where he arrived himself on the 23d, and
was proceeding to carry into execution my instructions.
When Marshal Suchet marched into Catalona, the Duke
del Praque had advanced, and established his headquarters
at San belie de Xativa, and his troops on the Xucar,
where he still was on the 24th.
London; August 12.—There were neither cannon nor
cavalry used inthe battle of the 28th. It was all done by
the bayonet; and we need scarcely add, that no nation
upon the earth can vie with the British in that weapon.
Our loss is stated in some letters at between 2 and SU00;
the enemy’s more than double. After the battle, Soult is
said to have retreated by Urdache; and Sir Rowland Hill
joining the Great Lord on the 29th, the pursuit of the
enemy into France is reported to be continued with all
possible rapidity. His Fordship is understood to have
converted the siege of St. Sebastian into a blockade, whilst
he was occupied in disposing of Sout, Cuniident expec.
View original tations were entertained that the fortress, notwithstanding
the failure on the 25th, would not be able to hold out be-
yond the second week in August.
The Earl of Aberdeen sailed yesterday from Yarmouth.
Letters have been received from an QOitlicer of Sir T.
Graham’s Staff, which state, that the gallant veteran had
avery narrow escape by the bursting of a shell close by
him, when visiting the trenches before St. Sebastiau. The
gallant General and those around him were preserved by
throwing themselves on their faces ull the explosion had
taken place.
Aua. 13]—The following is a copy of aletter from un
Ojjicer, dated near Sebastian, 27th July, 1813 :—
**On Sunday, the 25th inst. we stormed Sebastian, on
entering the breath, we fuund the enemy so well prepare
cd for our reception, that we were obliged to retreat with
the loss of 300 killed, wounded, and taken prisoners,
including 14 Officers killed or prisoners. However, in
a few days we are again to attack the place, and are re-
solved at all events to take it.—N8&. Capt. Taylor, of
Ilis Majesty’s sloop Sparrow, has lost his leg.”
We should be glad to be able to believe that the loss
sustained was pot greater than the statement in the above
Letter. But we know that the loss of the Royals alons
was greater. The following list has been given in another
Paper of the Officers killed and wounded in that regi-
ment :—
Killed—Major Peter Fraser, Capt. Cameron, Adjutant Cluff, Lieu~
tenants Samuel! Clarke, Francis Massey, John Anderson.
Wounded—Captains Argimbeau, lost an arm; Logan, do.; Buck-
ley, severely ; R. M. M Donald, duo.; James Stuart, in two places,
slightly ;—Lieutenants O'Neil, severely ; ; Eyre, do. and prisoner ;—
Ensigns Heskins, de.; Alstane, do. aud prisoner; Reynolds, do. _
Volunteer Mi er. do. "do.
Two huudced and eighty rank and file killed and wound.
cd, among whom is the whole of the grenadier company,
The fullowing is an extract of another letter from an
Officer, dalcd ol St. Sebastian's, 30th July :—
+o An Olficer from Lord Wellington hasarrived. A see
vere action took place on the 28th, which Jastcd from
half past twelve to five. Soult ascauKed with about 835000
men, and was invariably driven beck—he must retire. —
Lord Wellingtun had only three divisions, the 3d, 4thand
Cth, and some Spaniards, in the whole about 20,000 men,
Phesloss is great on both sides. ‘Vhree of Lord Welling.
ton’s Sialf are wounded.”
Leith, Aug, \O —Arrived the Alexandria frigate, ana
Spitiire sloop of war, from Greenland. They chased the
President, American frigate, Commodore Rodgers, for 96
hours, but lost her on the 23d alt; she was crowding all
sail to the Westward. A fast sailing privateer of 16 guns,
and 200 wen, was in company with the President.”
In order to replace those brave troops which were kil.
led and wounded in the battle near Vittoria, and to fol.
iow up the movements that may have been planned by our
brave Commander in Chief in the Peniusula, Government
have ordered reinforcements of 4000 infantry and 12,00
cevaley, which they were forwarding with the utmostex.
Te dition.
ihe Armistice has }een prolonged. Plenipotentiaries
were assembling at Prague, and the Karl of Aberdeen was
about tv embark in that capacity from the Court of Great
siitain, Ju the mean time, Napoleon is strenghtening
his armies, for which purpose, we are much afraid, this
cessation was Solely proposed by him; that thus the re.
cominencement of hustilities should prove disastrous tothe
allied cause.
In the FToase of Commons on the 13th July, the fol.
lowing observations were made relative to.
West India Legislatures.—Mr. W. Smith moved for
an Address to the Prince Regent, that instructions should
be given to the Coveruors of our Settlements in the West
Indies and America, to transmit to the Home Department
copies of all laws passed by the respective Legislatures of
such Settlements or Colonics, and directing them to be
printed when passed, within six months: one copy of
each to be laid vn the table of that House: also to direct
the transmission of all Acts hitherto passed, which had not
been transmitted, or printed; one copy of cach to be Jaid
before the House.—Mr. Goulborne said, that this could
not be gginplied with very quichly —Mr. W. Smith was
aware e.: take considerable tine. Agreed to.”
On the 28th of April, an explanatory Ivtter was writ.

he was told, ‘*That their Lordships expect, and direct
him to maintain a blockade de facto of every Port of the

It appears from the Paris Papérs, that Massina has
