"8. To resort to the assistance of a foreign power".—
(One of our private letters states that it has been proposed
to transfer the rights of Spain over certain
provinces for an equivalent.)

The Archbishop of Seville was chosen President
of the Committee, which it appears set aside the propositions
of the Government for the Report which was
made in the sitting of the Cortes of the 24th recommended—
"That there should be sent to both Americas
Commissioners instructed to hear & receive whatever
propositions the said Governments may make, & to transmit
the same to the mother country, in order that the
Cortes may decide thereon, without prejudice however
to measures being taken by the Government for receiving
propositions from persons authorized by the said Governments,
& referring them to the Cortes."

The Cortes proceeded to discuss this Report, as we
have stated on the 27th. The debate lasted the whole period
allotted for the sitting & was adjourned to the following
day.

In the sitting of the 26th a letter was read from the
Secretary of State for the Transmarine Department,
in which he informed the Cortes that he had appointed to
discharge the duties of first Secretary of State, the Marquis
de Santa Cruz, Grandee of Spain of the 1st Class; for
the War Department General Don Jose Cienfuegos; &, for
the Finances Don Luis Lopez Ballesteros.

With regard to the Ministry a letter of the 28th states, that
it was believed the King had finally decided not to fill the places of
those who had resigned; at least, till the separation of the present
Cortes. In this case the Minsters ad interim would continue their
functions till the beginning of March. The new political Chief of Cadiz
had arrived there & entered on his office; & Seville was again
tranquilized, the authorities
appointed by the
Government having been
invited to assume their
rank. The news from the
other provinces was
favorably all things denoted
a general return to
order.
