2 JULY 1831, Page 8

The Belgians have got a King, if they can keep

him. The fol- lowing is a copy of the letterdelivered to the Deputation previous to their departure on Sunday.

". Gentlemen—I entertain a deep sense of the wish of which the Belgic Congress has made you the interpreters. This mark of confidence is to me the more flattering, that it was not sought for on my part. Human destinies do not present a more noble and more useful task than that of being called to maintain the independence and consolidate the liberties of a nation. A mission of such high importance can alone determine me to abandon an independent position, and to separate myself from a country to which I have been attached by ties and recollections the most sacred, and which has given me so many proofs of its benevolence and sympathy. I accept then, Gentlemen, the offer which you make me ; it being understood that it will belong to the Congress of the na-

tional representatives to adopt the measures which Can alone constitute the new state, and thus secure for it the recognition of the European Powers. It is thus that the Congress will give me the power of devoting myself entirely to Belgium, and of consecrating to its well-being and pro- sperity the relations which I have formed in countries whose friendship is essential to it, and to secure it, as much as depends upon my co-ope- ration, an independent and happy existence: "26th June 1831."

There is yet much to arrange. The Belgians may insist on their original demands without purchase ; the King of Holland may refuse to accede to any of them, even with purchase. Prince LEOPOLD, it Will be seen, accepts the crown on the condition that requisitions be complied with to which the Belgians have hitherto disdainfully refused compliance. The feelings, however, of the several parties, or at least of all of ihem except the King of Hol- land, are more cordial than they were ; and memb:rs of Congress are led by their feelings as much as meaner individuals. Doubtless it would be wise policy for Belgium, in the mean time, to yield to the suggestions of the Allies. It needs security, and above all things repose. Up to this morning, we are without intelligence of the manner in which the Prince's letter has been received; and can only hope that it has been received in the spirit in which it .appears to have been Written.
