topics of the Speech. [lis Royal Lighness will commence
with av expression of his deep concern at finding himself
again compelladt to announce the continuance of his Ma-
jesty’s laincuted indisposition, The intercsting and extra.
ordinary sifuation of Europe, at (he present moment, will
then be alluded to, as sugses ing fo his Royal Highness
the measure of callius Parliament together thus early to
resume their labours. Vhe mcaus which their liberality
supplied, to ena’ste him chectually to assist the Alited Po-
wers compmiticd against Irance in a struggle for (heir ine
dependence, have not been vainly bestowed 5 and his Roy -
al Highness is persuaded they will bearlily share with him
in the high satisfaction the events which have recently
taken place on the Coprtinent are calcutated (o afiord,
With him they will resoice to see the mighty comtest care
ricd on by the allics wih now means and increasing ho, es,
to the disappointnicnt and discomficure of the con mon
enemy. ‘Phe vatour andintee, tits isola cd by hie Sine
Jesty’s furces in the Posinsula have rescucd nearly tre
whole of Portucal and Spam from the domimation oi
France. ‘Pie brillicnt vielory of Vitto..a tas been fol-
lowed up by successes not toss splencidpand doeisive, By
the consummate skill and yalour of PFicid-Marshal the
Marquis of Wellington, the principal theatre of war has
been trausferred to the cnemy’s countries, and the french

of his Royal Highness will be expressed, that they will
goernlially unite to continue every aid to the cause of the
Pournsala which cireumeteuccs may require, ino order to
bring the contest to a speedy termination, ‘The perfeet
concert, confidence, and friendship, which unites England
with Russia, Prussia, and Sweden, will be announced,
together with the accession of Austriaand Bavaria tu the
cause of independence. The enthusiastic valour of Rus-

defence, is now seen victorious on the banks of the Saale,
magnaninously contending for the liberties of Europe in
Germany. ‘The then principal allies and dependants of
France, emancipated from her rule, are now arayce againtt

with success commensurate with the zeal by which they

own independence on a firm basis. and restore the Sover-
eigns of Europe to their ancient rights. ‘he continuance
of the war between this country and the United States of
America will no doubt be alluded to. Constantly actu-
ated by the sincerest desire to reestablish the relations of
peace and amity between the two countrics, no exertions
on our part have been wanting to adjust the existing dif.
ferences. ‘The pretensions of the American government
have hitherto made it impossible for his anxious efforts to

hostile attempts on Uppér Canade have continued to prove
abortive, and their troops have repeatedly been defeated
with considerable loss, while the operations of his Majes-
ty’s combined naval and military forces in that quarter,
directed against their coasts, have been gencrally crowned
with the most complete success. It is most consoling to
know that the bluw directed against our commerce has
failed of doing this country any material injary, and has
recoiled on the encmy. Our improving trade isa subject
of higit satisfaction. A great portion of that commerce
formerly conducted through the medium of America, is
now carried on in British bottoms, with additional benefit
(o the merchants and manufacturers of this country. The
effects of this cannot but bo felt severely in the Unitad
States. Ifis Royal Highness will express his reliance on
the cordial support of Parliament, to enable him to perse-
vere in the measures adopted to oppose the designs of the
enemy, in the hope that the vigorous prosecution of the
war will Jead to the attainment of a peace, consistent with
the honor and maritime rights of Great Britain, The es-
timates of the services for the ensuing year will be laid be-
fore the ITouse of Commons, and reliance will be placed
on their readiness to furnish such supplies as shall appear
necessary to enable his Royal Mishness to put forth those
cmergics nthe great canse ot Lurope, which the magnitude
of the struggle demands, and which will atYurd the best
prospect of bring the contest in which his Majesty is ens
gaged toa successful issue, The tiaportance of possessing
at this juncture a powerful disposable force, it wiil be
unnecessary tu cndvavour to impress; and the wisdom of
Partiament will enable his Royal dlighness largely to avaii
lusoclf of the military resources of the country. It is
probable that his Royal Highuess will recommend to their
carly Consideration such messures as may enable him to
aidord the most effectual assistauce to the allied powers on
(necontinent in the grand contest in which dhey are euga-
aed, andia che result of which this country must neces.
sacily feel itself so deeply interested. Tu the loyalty of
the people, and in’ Che wisdom of Parliament, his Royal
Uizlness reposes the fullest confidences, satistied that that

United Provinces on Monday last, the 15th instant,
when the people of Amsterdam rose in a body, pro-
claiming the [louse of Orange with the old cry of
Orange boven, and universally putting up the Orange
colours. —This example was immediately followed
by the other towns of the Provinces of Holland and
Utrecht, as Haarlem, Leyden, Utrecht, the Hague,

lay, an Adininistration in this great city, which, in

dertake the establishment of such an Administration,

been called out and invited by them to take upon
themselves, at so critical a moment, the honourable
and interesting task of effecting every thing that cae

@ JLuondon, Nov. 22.--'The Counter-revolution in
Tolland, which has given another ally to (his coun-
try, asd another enemy to the enemy of the human
race, was effected with all the steadiness and resolu-
tion of the Dutch character, and with less bloodshed
than coull have been expected, considering the op-
presston under which the Dutch have groaned for so
Inany years.
On Monday, the 14th, when the rising was deter-
mined upon, one of the leading Patriots proceeded to
the residence of Le Bran, the Dake of Placentia, the
the Governor of {lolland. Ue had the Orange coc-
kade in his hat and on his breast, be addressed Le
Brun as follows :—* You may easily guess by these
‘colours for what purpose [ am come, and what
“ovents are about lo take place. You, who are now
“ihe weakest, know that we are the strongest. You
‘twilldo wisely and prudently to take your departure
“with all possille speed, and the sooner you do it,
“the less you will expose yourself to insult, and,
“possibly, to danger.”? To this address Le Brun
replied, ‘I have, Sir, for some time expected such
‘‘a message, and I very willing accede to your pro-
‘position, to take my departure immediately.” ‘In
“that case,” satd the Patriot. ‘1 will see you into
“your coach without loss of time.” This was accord-
ingly done. But by this time the people had assem-
bled and surrounded the coach, with loud cries of
Orange boven, up, Orange,—down Buonaparte.—
Lhe Patriotaccompanied him in the coach out of the
town, and no violence was offered him except that he
was obliged by the people to cry out, long live the
Prince of Orange! and to wear the Orange cockade
metoo Lappy, no doubt, to get off so well. IIaving

Iiench Donaniers and threw them into the river.
All the watch-houses of the Pouaniers and three of
their vessels were burat. We have not heard of any
bloodshed in any other place except at Utrecht.
There the garrison made come resistance to the Pa-
(riots. But the latter fired upon them, and some 10
or 12 were killed on each side. The earrison then
laid down ther arms, and were permitted (o depart.
I¥ was Friday last at four in the afternoon that the
Orange Flag was hoisted with great solemnity at
Rotterdam. There was a vast concourse of people
ofall ranks, who greeted tne Ensign of Liberty with
unanimous and heartfelt acclamations. The preced-
ing day, about noon, the French General Bouvet
marched out the Hague at the head of 200 soldiers,
mostly Germans, in concequence of a sort of capitu-
lation with the inhabitants. No sooner, however,
had he rached Ysselmonde, about 12 miles from
the Hague than his troops hoisted the Orange coc-
kade, dispatched him, and joined the Patriots. At
Leyden a Provisional Goycrnment was appointed,
consisting of the Baron van Boetzelaer, J. van Bom-
mel, and W. van Kluit. At Rotlerdam the Patriots
nominated Mssrs. van Hogendorp and d’Leuiy to
the chief command. Such was the alarm of the
French, that they evacuated every strong place ex-
ceplGorcam. Bergen op Zoom, Bred, Nimeguen,
were occupied by the Patriots; but the gates of
Maastricht had been shut by the Burghers, who had
declined to admit any stranger, wheather of the
Orange parfy or French.
The first (hing naturally thauchi after the Counter-
revolution was, (o restore the freedom of the Press.
The Hague Courant was iminediately restored with
the arms and other symbols of the old Government.
We have reeieved the first number printed last Pri-
day. It details the proceedings that had taken place
there and in other parts of Holland. Leyden Gazette
has also been revived. Creat anxiety was mani-
fested in all the ports forthe arrival of (he Aflies from
the Nastward, and ofa navaland military force from
this couutry. ‘The Crown Prince wis expected
Utrecht last Saturday or Sunday, and as he was cer-
tainly at Cassel on the Ist, he mieht casily reach Ut-
recht by the 19th or 20th. But we can hardly see
the necesstty of the Allies entering Holland in creat
force. The French have no longer any hold of the
country. ‘There are not likely to be any ExCcsses
commilled. The Duteh are unanimous for the res-
oration of their old Government. We should be
glad to find the Crown Prinee direct his Steps to-
wards the Necherlands, and take \nowerp from the
land side. The existence of the Dutch Republic as
an independent Staite, depends upon the Netherlands
being wrested from France. We have tire authority
even of Buonaparte for saying this, ‘the union of
Hollind to France was the nece ssary Consequence of
the unton to Belginm. The disunion of Belgium
from France must follow the disunion of Holland from
Mrance. Of the necessity of this measure, the Allies,
we believe, are firmly persuaded.
dhic greatest activity prevails in the different de-
partments to send of troops and ships to our new Ally,
the Dutch Republic. The force intended to be sent
will amount to nearer 10,000 men than 5000. All
the non-commissioned officers and privates belonging
lo the three regiments of Foot Guards, quartered in
Westminster and the barracks in its vicinity, assem-
bled yesterday morning at 9 o ‘clock, on the parade
in St. James’s Park, and marched to the barracks
on the South side of the Park, for the purpose of
being inspected, previous to their embarkation.
They had afterwards all their marching necessaries ;
coats, trowsers, &c. delivered. Carts, waggons, and
other means of conveyance were pressed for their
conveyance from London. For the first time, two
militia regiments did duty at the Palaces, the Not-
tingham and the Stafford. The different regular
regiments proceed from the following places to Har-
wich and Yarmouth.

Downing-strect, November 24.
The Marquis of Worcester has arrived with a dis-
patch, of which the following is a copy, addressed to
(he Parl Bathurst by the Marquis of Wellington,
My Lorn, St. Pe, Novo. 18, 1813.
The enemy have, since the beginning of August,
occupied a position with their right upon the sea, in
front of St. Jean de Juz, and on the left of the Nivel-
le, their centre on La Petite La Rhune in Sarre, and
onthe heights behind the village, ard their left, con-
sisting of two divisions of infantry, under Comte
@Ierlon, on the right of that river, ona strong height
in rear of Anhoue, and oa the mountain of Moadarin,
which protected the approach to that village: they
had one division under Gen. Foy at St. Jean Pied de
Port, which was joined by one of the army of Arra-
gon, under Gen. Paris, at the time the left of the al-
licd army crossed the Bidassoa on 7th October; Ge-
neral Foy’s division joined those on the heights be-
hind Anhoue, when Licut.-Gen. Sir R. Hill moved
into the valley of Bastan.
The enemy, not satisfied with the natural streneth
of this position, had the whole of it fortified, and their
right, in particular, had been made so strong, that
[ did not deem it expedient to attack it in front.
Pamplona having surrendered on the Slst of Oct.
and the right of the army having been disengaged
from covering the blockade of that place, I moved
Licut.-Gen. Sir Rowlond Hill, onthe 6th and 7th,
into the valley of Bastan, as soon as the slate of the
roads, after the recent rains, would permit intending
to altack the enemy on the Sth instant ; but the raim
which fell on the 7th inst. having again rendered the
roads impracticable, 1 was oblived to defer the attack
till the 10th, when we completely succeeded in car-
rying all the positions on the enemy’s left and centre,
in separating the former from the latter, and by these
means turning the enemy’s strong positions occupied
by their right on the Lower Nivelle, which they
were obliged to evacuate during the night, having
taken 51 pieces of cannon, and 1400 prisoners.
