Highness, in the name and on the behalf of His Majesty, was pleased to deliver the following most gracious speech to both Houses of Parliament:

My Lords, and Gentlemen,

IT is with deep regret that I am again obliged to announce to you, that no alteration has occurred in the state of His Majesty's lamented indisposition. I continue to receive from foreign powers the strongest assurances of their friendly disposition towards this country ; and of their earnest desire to maintain the general tranquillity. The hostilities to which I was compelled to resort, in vindication of the honour of the country, against the Government of Algiers, have been attended with the most complete success. The splendid achievement of His Majesty's fleet, in conjunction with a squadron of the King of the Netherlands, under the gallant and able conduct of Admiral Viscount Exmouth, led to the immediate and unconditional liberation of all Christian captives then within the torritory of Algiers, and to the renunciation by its Government of the practice of Christian slavery. I am persuaded that you will be duly sensible of the importance of an arrangement so interesting to humanity, and reflecting, from the manner in which it has been accomplished, such signal honour on the British nation. In India the refusal of the Government of Nepaul to ratify a treaty of peace, which had been signed by its Plenipotentiaries, occasioned a renewal of military operations. The judicious arrangements of the GovernorGeneral, seconded by the bravery and perseverance of His Majesty's forces, and of those of the East India Company, brought the campaign to a speedy and successful issue ; and peace has been finally eStaestablished upon the just and honourable terms of the original treaty.

, Gentlemen of the House of Commons,

I have directed the estimates for the current year to be laid before you.

They have been formed upon a full consideration of all the present circumstances of the country, with an anxious desire to make every reduction in our establishments which the safety of the empire and sound policy allow.

I recommend the state of the public income and expenditure to your early and serious attention.

I regret to be under the necessity of informing you, that there has been a deficiency in the produce of the revenue in the last year; but I trust that it is to be ascribed to temporary causes; and I have the consolation to believe, that you will find it practicable to provide for the public service of the year, without making any addition to the burthens of the people, and without adopting any measure injurious to that system by which the public credit of the country has been hitherto sustained.

My Lords, and Gentlemen,

I have the satisfaction of informing you, that the arrangements which were made in the last session of Parliament, with a view to a new silver coinage, have been completed with unprecedented

expedition. I have given directions for the immediate issue of the new coin, and I trust that this measure will be productive of considerable advantages to the trade and internal transactions of the country. The distresses consequent upon the termination of a war of such unusual extent and duration have been felt, with greater or less severity, throughout all the nations of Europe; and have been *. aply
