On Friday, the 26th ult. the lord chancellor, in his majestys name, delivered the

following speech to both houses of parliament:
38 My lords and gentlemen,- We have it in command from his majesty to state

to you, that having deemed it expedient to recur to the sense of his people, his má jesty

, in conformity to his declared intention, bas lost nồ time in causing the present parliament to be assembled.

" His majesty bas great satisfaction in acquainting you, that since the events which led to the dissolution of the last partiainent, his majesty has received, in nu. merous addresses fruto his subjects, the warmest assurances of their affectionate at.

and he commands us to express his entire confidence, ibat he shall experience, in | all your deliberations, a determination to afford him an equally loyal, zcalous, and af

fectionate support, under all the arduous circumstances of the present time.

“ We are commanded by his majesty to inform you, that his majesty's endeavours E the bave been most anxiously employed for the purpose of diawing closer the ties by

which his majesty is connected with the powers of the continent: of assisting the
eports of those porters against the amtition and oppressions of France ; of forming
such engagements as may ensure their continued co-operation ; and of establishing
that mutual confidence and concert, so essential, under any course of events, to the
restoration of a solid and permanent peace in Europe.
"It would bare afforded his inajesty the greatest pleasure to have been enabled

to inform you, that the mediation undertaken by fils majesty for the purpose of pre- serving peace between bis majesty's ally, tie enperor on Russia, and the Sublime

Port, lad proved effectual for that important object; his majesty cleeply regrets the failure of that mediation, accompanied as it was by the dissappointment of the efforts

of bis majesty's squadron in the sea of Alarmora, and followed as it has since been .. by the losses ivhich have been sustained by his gallant troops in Egypt.

His majesty could not but lament the extension of hostilities in any quarter, which should create a diversion in the war so favourable to the views of France; but lamenting it especially in the instance of a power with which his majesty has been so tlosely connected, and which has been so recently indested for its protection against

e incroachments of France to the signal and successful interposition of his majesty's " His majesty has directed us to acquaint you, that he has thought it right to adopt such measures as might best enable him, in concert with the emperor of Russia, take advantage of any favourable opportunity for bringing the hostilities in which Hey are engaged against the Sublime Port, to a conclusion, consistent with his maslys honour, and the interests of his ally.

Gentlemen of the house of commons, – His majesty has ordered the estimates f the current year to be laid before you, and he relies on the tried loyalty and zeal this faithful commous to make such provisions for the public service, as well as in the further application of the sums which were granted in the last parliament, es appear to be necessary.

And his majesty, bearing constantly in mind the necessity of a careful and é nomical administration of the pecuniary resources of the country, has directed us express his bopes that you will proceed without delay in the pursuit of those inInes, connected with the public economy, which engaged the attention of the last

My lords and gentlemen,- His majesty commands us to state to you, that he freeply impressed with the peculiar importance, et the present moment, of cherishe
