Porrugese affaus may be considered a duty by Olvere-
mea, there can bo no rational objection to their exer-
cising that vigilance; but if itis is to go to paitive in-
terference, and to lead to new couferaces with the Holy
Alliance, and to a new issue of prot(ls from th volu-
ealei pa of Lard Paluserus, we meet proeat again
it. We were boad by treay so protl the idependmece

The alluion to the treaty between the five powers and
Belgium is followed up by only the eprsieon of a vague
hope that the King of the Netherleads wi accede to die
arrangement. We suspect the enlightened Monarch"
will tumn ait to be only a puppet in the hands of odters--
Who pulls the strings
The next announcement of the speech is one of great
importance to ithe cause of civilization and the interests of
humanity. It is the asnnouncentntio of a convention with
the King of the French, for the efectual suppression othe
African slave trade. Few as the colonies of the French
Nation are, the French flag has been made abundmti use
of in this aboaiinable traflic ever since the mixed com-
mission" with Ssain, ansd some other powers, was estab-
lished for the purpose of hitting it down. The conven-
tion, we presunm, concedes the mutual right of starch,
antd will thereby contribute more than anything that has
yet been done to sweep fromu the seas the pirates that
desolate Africa, to perpctuatl the curse and crime of
slavery in other parts of the wrld.
The riots at Bristol were a fit bject for observation in
the Royal Speech, but so regret that though they ar
spoken of as the subject of deserved punishment, Dn in-
quiry into tlle causes of those disorders is recommended.
It is right that the causes should be inquired into, because,
until they are known, the teal amount of the guilt of the
rimlcrr cannot be ascertained. Hundreds of them were in
the end cut ldwn by the sabres of the military, or shot,
and yet we do not find that the rioters destroyed a single
lil'. Thlsir frantic acts appear to have been the result of
the first fatal weakness of the authorities, whoever they
were, which allowed them to gpt pomession of the wine-
cellar at the Mansion House. The intoxication that fol-
lowed can account fur all the rest-but we want to know
something more than has been told of tie beginning of
I those diOders. The laws must be vindicated, but we
trust justice will be ministered in mercy.

order to protect our menaced frontier. This end has been
fully attained ; peace and Intranquillity have continoud eve-
ry where undisturbed, and the troops have answered the
eipectationa which I had a right to expect from their zeal
and fidelity. The war reserves and landwchr quickly
liastned to arms, and anll sppored with patience and re-
siiliulioen the nunierous privations and sicrifrcs whicli
particnlarly bore upon tlie landwehr, and we'le inseparable

against the property, and thd other against the lives of the
wretched perusns who ale till bowed down by the tyranny
