London, Oct. 18. jtlie
We have been made acquainted with to
some interestin'' faots which throw light hail
upon the late proceedings at Cadiz, and
the Trocadero. The date of these facts is
by several days earlier than the capture
of Cadiz • but they serve to abate our as
tonishment at that unfortunate event. It
seems that even the treachery of those ge
norais who had been entrusted with im- the
portant commands, has not been so
to the cause of liberty, as the want ol tie
entrirv and talent in those who were un
questionably faithful. The inhabitants of.Kven
Cadiz, the militia, and the troops ol the
line, were all well dispose*! to the Consti
all brave, and perfectly ready to'of
defend it to the'last; but the want of sa-'of
pacify, the negligence, and even apathy ol
their leaders, precluded all chance of sue-Cadiz

As an illustration at. once of the courage
ami negligence of the Spaniards, we will
relate what passed before and at the tak-i
ing of the Trocadero. Our account cmncsjfor
from an eye witness. 'Two days before

jtlie militia at Madrid, who were staunchjall
to a man, and of the regular troops vvho'and
hail given no ground for suspicion, there
were other circumstances which, to
ward appearance, gave hopes that Cadiz
would hold out, at least lor a month or
two.
The town was amply supplied with
visions : before the taking of Santi Petri,
the passage from Gibraltar to Cadiz was
ruin-petformeil with such ease and with so lit
tie risk, that the rate of insurance seldom
exceeded 2 1-4 and never 3 per cent—as
of.Kven after the taking of Santi Petri, ow
ing parly to a change in the winds, and
chiefly to the extremely bad seamenship vei
to'of the French vessels, could go in and out in
the harbour of Cadiz with scarcely any
risk. And yet with all these advantages
sue-Cadiz has fallen without a blow ! To what
|is this to be ascribed? ut
To no want of courage, as we have
shown in the people ; to no want of cou
rage or of honesty in their government ;
braver and honester men than Calatra
va, Valdez and Alava, do not exist ; but of
to the utter ignorance of all the necessary
details of business, to sluggishness of cha
racter, to want of forecast, and, what will
betray-jappear incredible, but which was the con
in sequence of the foregoing defects, their
Kng-|absolute want of information as to the
events daily happening in every part of
[Spain. Arid to this, they were for the most
[part, the dupes of Ferdinand's allected
protestations of liberalism, or if they sus
peeted him, were afraid to act upon their
ad-suspicions.
Ferdinand, who is by no means the dolt
that he has been supposed in this country
to be, was all along playing a deep and
damning game. After his arrival in Ca-ing
diz, he pretended to have changed opi-the

h I he most criminal treason, the most
disgracelul baseness, the most terrible of
lences against my royal person mese,
coupled with violence, were the means
employed to change essentially the pater
nal government of my kingdom into a de
mocfatica. code the fertile source ofdisas
te rs and misfortunes. •
" My subjects, accustomed to live under
wise and moderate laws, and such as were
eccle-conformable to their manners and CU3 '
n-toms, and which, during so many age».
constituted the welfare of their ancestfrs,
soon gave public and universal proofs of
their disapprobation and contempt of the
new constitutional system. All classes ol
the state experienced the mischiefs occa
sioned by the new institutions.
"Tyrannically governed, by virtue anil
in the name of the constitution, secretly
watched all their private concerns, it was
not possible to restore order or justice ;
and they could not obey laws established
by perfidy .and treason, sustained by vio
lence, and the source of most dreadful
disorders, of the most desolating anarchy
and of universal calamity.
"The general voice was heard from all
be-sides against the tyrannical constitution,
U called for the cessation of a code null in
opi-its origin, illegal in its formation, and un
just in its principle; it called for the
samejmaintenance of the sacred religion of their
ancestors, for the re-establishment of our
fundamental laws, and for the preservation
0 f my legitimate rights which I have re
ceived from my ancestors, and whtclt my
pass-subjects have solemnly sworn to defend.
" This general cry of the nation was not
raised in vain.
" In all the provinces armed corps
formed, which leagued themselves against
the soldiers of tbe constitution ; sometimes
they were conquered ; but they always
maineil firm to the cause of religion and
of the monarchy.
" Their enthusiasm, in the defence of
proceed-mlijects so sacred, never deserted them un-—
by'der the reverse of war, and preferring
libera-death to the sacrifice of those great bene
ofjfits, my subjects convinced Europe, by
regar-jtheir fidelity and their constancy, that
tolthough Spain nourished in herbosom
Proclamation nf the. King of Spain.
" The scandalous excesses which pre
ceded, accompanied and followed the es
tablishment olllie democratical constitu
unnatural children, the sons of rebellion,
the nation in general was religious, mon
archical, and passionately devoted to its
legitimate sovereign.
"The whole of Europe—well aware of
my captivity, and of that ot all the royal
family, of the deplorable situation of my
loyal and faithful subjects, and of the per
nicious doctrines which Spanish agents
were disseminating on all sides—resolved
to put an end to a state of things which
constituted a common reproach, ami
which menaced with destruction, all
thrones and ancient institutions, in order
to establish impiety and proliigacy.
" France entrusted with so sacred
enterprise, has triumphed in a few months
over the eflbrts of all the rebels of the
world collected for the misery of Spain,
upon her classic soil of fidelity and loy
alty.
" Mv august anil well beloved cousin,
the Duke d'Angouleme, at the head of a
valient army, a conqueror throughout all
my territories, has rescued me from the
slavery in which I pined, and restored me
to my constant and faithful subjects.
" Replaced upon the throne of St. Ker.
dinanil by the just and wise hand of Pro
vidence, as well as by the generous efforts
of my noble allies, and the valient enter
prise of my cousin.the Duke d'Angouleme,
and his brave army, desirous of applying
a remedy to the most pressing necessities
of my people, and of manifesting to all,
my real will, in this, the first moment of
iny recovered liberty, I have authorised
the following decree :—
"Art. 1. All the acts of the govern
ment called constitutional (of whatever
kind and description they may be) a sys
tem which oppressed my people from the
7th of March 1820, until the 1st of Octo
ber 1823, are declared null and void, de
claring as I now declare, that during the
whole ofthat period, I have been deprived
of my liberty, obliged to sanction laws and
authorise orders, decrees, and regulations,
which the said government framed and
executed against my will.
"Art. 2. I approve of every thing
which, has been decreeii and ordered by
the Provisional Junta of Government, and
by the Regency, the one created at Oyar
7 un, April 9, the other May 20, in the pre
sent year, waiting meanwhile, until suffi
ciently informed as to the wants of my
people, I may be able to bestow those laws
and adopt those measures which will he
best calculated to secure their real pros

my wishes. You may communicate this
decree to all the ministers.
