r The session of the Dutch States-General was opened on

Monday, with a speech from the King. His Majesty assured his subjects of their increasing renown, wealth, and happiness, under his pa- ternal government; and, unless this were news, we must look in vain for any thing of which the world was previously ignorant, in the Dutch King's speech. The King pronounced his own con- demnation when he stated that the Belgian question remained in statu quo.
