$ No. 6. Mr.- Canning to Sir William
ACourt, dated December 9. This let
ter encloses the answer to the note of the
l)uke cf.Wellington, presented at Paris,
(see. No. 12Verona and Paris- papers.)
This is the paper in which the French
government declined the mediation of
Enelabd. We extract the following froiii
3VIr.. Canning's despatch toMadnd upon
this subject. x ' -
UA thr object at Verona was to induce
vs to make common cause "with ail ; jso,
the object of France, since she has to a
certain degree reconsidered for herself
the measures framed at Verona, appears
to be to induce us to concur in her sepa
rate and mitigated measure. .
44 The truth is, as you are aware, that
"our drction to loming in the measures
settieu at verona v
t.rincifile: not of degr
was an objection of
ree ; an objection not
capable, therefore, ot being overcome by
a mere modiiication of the execution cf
them. ' 1 '
It would have been 'idle , to offer our
mediation to France, if we had been pre
pared to unite with her in the condition
. al menace.contrined in the dispatch which
she has now addressed to her at Madrid
a menace softeml perhaps inlts terms,
and less precise as to the conditions ' on
: vhich Tt depends than those of the ether
Continental Powers, sut still vicious
IX PRixciPLEas at once demanding of
.bpam something to-be done in the ar
Tangement cf her -internal concerns and
denouncing (in however comparatively
distant and obscure a manner) War as
the consequence of refusal.
44 In speaking to M. de San Miguel up
on the subject of -those instructions, you
vill disclaim fcr your government any par-
zicijiation in this proceeding of the t rench
Government. -But you wttf avow the
deep interest which the King, our mas-
:r, ieris in me agnations now prevailing

thing yet to mike it necessary for us to

No. 9. Mr. Cannine to,lLoi d Titzrov
Somerset, dated January 6 -being a let
ter of instructions.1 We copy only the
following paragraph as going to show5 the
earnestness with which England has at
tempted o keep the peace::- ;
-4 At the same time, that you will be
careful to mark vour relation tp his Ma
jesty's established Minister, it will Jbe es-
sential to avoid creating tiie impression,
that the suggestions whichyour Lordship
has to offer fon the, part of the Duke. of
Wellington, as the friend and well-wisher
of Spain,; are only in another shaTDe
demands on the part of your government.
A voluntary adoption 01 the suggestions
of the Duke of Wellington would enable
us to mediate for Spain with France, with
an effect infinitely more powerful. But
we donoU like France, demand any thing
of this sort, as the firice of our forbear
ance to break with Spain.
Enclosed in No. 9, was a memorandum
by the Duke of Wellington, for the as
sistance of Lord Fitzroy Somerset, on his
arrival at Madrid. We think it necessa
ry to give these memoranda entire, as ex
hibiting the impartial views of the distin4
guishe'a author, in ..relation to the defects
of the Spanish constitutionand the reform
necessary, in his opinion, for the preser
vation of a . proper balance of power in
the Government. : 1
London, January. 6, 1823. '
It is important to make; the Spaniards
feel, that, a King being necessary for' the
government of their country, and a part
of their system, as established by them -selves
it follows, as a niatter of equal
necessity, that the powers and preroga
tives assigned to thejing;in the system,
snould ne sucn as ta enable him to per
form his duties, and such as, in reason, a
King ought to be itisfied with.
If the situation of the King is not what
it Ought to be ; if he has npt the power to
protect himself, and those?- employed un
der him, in the performance of their du
ty in the service of the public ; and if the
King has "not reason to be satisfied that
the power, alldtted tohimhy law is suffi-
cient, the country will never be in a state
of tranquillity, be the systtm of Govern-
menr wnat it may. 1 - n
1 I her Will be perpetual, successive
royal insurrections 1 in one part of Uie
country or the other : and the Kii;g and
his Gowrnmeht will be objects of never
ceasing jealousy snd. distrust. J
t The family connection between his
Catholic Majesty and the King of Frahce
and the interest which Jhe latter natu
rally feels for the welfare of the former
will occasion a perpetual irritation be
tween the two court tries, so long as the
situation of the King in Spain is not what
it ought to be ; which it nday be expected
will, sooner or) later, occasion war, and
the invasion ot the weaker country.
Inus, then, those ihparuards who real
ly d?ire the peace and welfare of their
country, must look1 to an alteration of
their Constitution, which shall have for
its object to give the,Kidg the power of-
executing his otnee. .1 con tess that 1 do
not see any objection to f this alteration,
either in the -antecedent? conduct of the
King, or in the apprehension that his
Catholic Majesty will abuse the power
thus confided to him. The King will feel
the advantages of the position in which
he shall find himself, and will have no
motive; for wishing to overthrow the sys
tem established, particularly if the alter
ation is made in concert fwith him ; arid,
moreover, the .spirit of the people, & the
exertions' of ;lhpse individuals, who have
prevented the existing system from being
overthrown, will preserve that to be es
tablished, even though the King should
be desirous of overthrowing it, by tHe a
buse of the power entrusted to him. -
This will be the case particularly, if the
proposed alterations of ' the system are
concerted with the Kng; Indeed, no .0-
ther mode of making these alterations can
have the desired effect : as, if, thev are
not made 111 concert with the Kinc and
his Catholic Majesty will not cordially
carrynto execution the system nroDosed :
land, both King and people being dissatis-
ncu, mere wm ai.ui uc i same causes lor
internal disturbance;and;for external war
as eStlsts at present. Tiie concert with
the King on the alterations must be a real
the Constitution, as altered, will secure the
foundations pi his power "over, the Execu
tive government, and - will erive him the
means 01 - protecting r himself, his familyi
and his servants. , w . v
;VNeither.dq I see any reason, for defer
ring to make these alterations in the re
cent transactions of- fareirn :nowprs.:
Those transactions are all nrofessedlv de-
f cn'bive. 2 France, firofestes. bv her arm v

ciares tnat sire w;ll not pass the froctier;

00 the principles proposed, would render;

those cases , so impropaDie, as tnac tne
continuaiice oK the .army 01 oaseryation
would be an useless ex$ense ; and there
is no doubt that.it would be immediately
withdrawn.' i i - : "
7.; Then another advantage which; would
result from this alteration in aid of inter
nal tranquility, is, thajFrance would
most probably immediately adopt, some
efficient measure to prevent the Assembly
Vf the Rovalists within the French fron
tier. AH Spaniards who pass the frontier,
might be ordered to reside at such a dis
tance from the frontier, as to render their
intrigues or their operations within the
Spanish1 frontier nearly impossible; and
thus the assylum given in France'to per
sons of this description, would not be in
consistent with the peace and tranquility
of Spain. -
But this is not all The Spaniards must
see that all the sources of the prosperity
of their country are nearly destroyed ;
and that the very foundation of social or
der and government are in a state of risk.
There is no trade, no private or public
revenue ;. the national property cannot be
sold ; the interest of the national debt
cannot be paid ; nor can the army,-" or any
of the publicseryaiits or- establishments ;
and no money can be borrowed
I happen to know, jthat' thfc. principle
moneyed people in Europe will not lend
their money to SpainJ till they shall see
a system prevail in that country which
shall afford some hope of the re-estabiish-ment
and permanence of peace and good
order. ; v
If all this be trueif! it be - ruev' besides
that the best chance that Spain has of
fcoming to some arrangement with herco
lonies, is to be found in some settlement
nf her internal dissentions and distractions,
it is impossible that any reasonable Span
iard can donbtj that the time is come to
effect those alterations, which the common
sense of mankind points1 out to be neces-

office, we mWt endeavor practically to
perform the duties of it." - '
No. 12. Sir William A'Court to. Mr.
Canning, dated Dec. 26. This letter de
tails another conversation with San Mi
guel which is not important. ' The Con
gress had then adTonrned the sovereigns

the Spanish minister was flattering him

No. 13., Mr. Canning to Sir. William
A'Court, dated Jan. ; 11. We extract
the following1; as shewing the early and
positive determination of England to
maintain a strict neutrality in the event of
a war, - - t;-;- '-' .'- - vv, -
- VThe position in which the Spanish
and French governments stands to each
other cannot last. Everyday brings i'-with
it the hazard -'of -an accidental infraction
of peace oh the1 frontiers ; - and the small
est such infraction might confound all pur
hopes and endeavors." Till France shall
withdraw her Army of Obseryatiori, there
is no security, atrainst such hazards.
France. cannot withdraw, her army (it is
(air to; admit) without- some cause to as
sign for doing so. The only- cause to be
assigned must be some satisfactory assu-
ances received trom Spain bpain may be
relnctanrto give such assurances to France
under the apparent influence of a menace.
But she mav confide, them to'-us. who
neither reouire them, 'nor threaten ahv
consequence of withholding them. If
Spain has griefs against France, she may ,
in like manner, confide to us the state
ment of them, as an inducement to France
to be satisfied with less concession. )
