LONDON GAZETTE of MARCH II, 1851.

Buckingham-Palace, March 7, 1851.

THIS day the Lord Mayor, Aldermen, and Councillors of the city of Dublin, waited upon Her Majesty to present the following Address; which Her Majesty was graciously pleased to receive on the Throne:

To the QUEEN'S Most Excellent Majesty.

The humble, loyal, and dutiful Address of the Right Honourable the Lord Mayor, Aldermen, and Burgesses of Dublin.

May it please your Majesty,

WE, your Majesty's loyal and devoted subjects, representatives of the citizens of Dublin in Corporate Council, having learned with alarm that it is the intention of your Majesty's Ministers to submit to Parliament a measure for the abolition of the office of Lord Lieutenant, approach your Majesty to implore, at the foot of the Throne, that your Majesty will be pleased to avert from us a measure, destructive of the property of the inhabitants of your loyal city of Dublin, and prejudicial to the interests of the entire country.

We feel that the abolition of the office would .*. to the rapid decay and ruin of property created under its influence, but there are other grounds on which we object to this measure. The Vice-Regal office is coeval with and continuous from the introduction of the English Monarchy into Ireland, as evidenced for centuries by the appointments of successive Chief Governors of Ireland by your Royal predecessors, and to our days by your Most Gracious Majesty, so that the office of a resident Chief Governor of Ireland forms part of the constitution under which we live. We prize the institution of the office of Lord Lieutenant because it has been the connecting Bink between the Crown and the people of Ireland. Under it have the arts and sciences been fostered, civilization has progressed, and social improvements been advanced; moreover, the representative of Majesty once removed, no guarantee would then remain as to the judicious exercise of the executive authority in Ireland. The advantage of a residence among and personal communion with our people would be lost, while that wholesome public opinion which has been found so useful in a free country would be weakened and destroyed. Reiterating our unabated loyal and devoted attachment to your Majesty's Throne and Government, We implore of your Majesty not to permit an interference with your Majesty's prerogative in the constitutional appointment of a Viceroy, or allow that office to be abolished in the reign of a sovereign who has ever manifested a deep interest for the welfare of Ireland, and the existence of which has been respected and continued by your Majesty's Royal predecessors, but rather let us indulge the hope that at some future period you may be graciously pleased to appoint one of the Royal Princes as your representative in Ireland, and
