Thty write from Perpignan the 6th Inftant, that all was very quiet in Catalonia, ai well as in Maj> rca, the Government having intirely finilh'd the DeHrudion of the • MiqurleH and Voluntiors.

Abcve 6co Perfons, that were imploy'd about the Palaces of VerfailF, Trianon and Marly, are aftually difmifs'd, ard no more left, than are neceffaty to keep them in Repair. The Aqueduft at Marly is not to be retrench'd, as was faid ; But c. ht'y are turning away a great Number of Perfons, who were employ'd on if. Madam Mainfenoa has parted with all her Coaches and Horfes, and even her Moveables, having made Pre- fents of them to divers Perfons. She has alfo dilmif.' d all her Domefticks, except a Valet de Chamber, a Gen- tlewoman and a Foetboy, reviving to pafs the reft of her Days in the Splitude of St. Cyr.

The Prffamble of tbe Declaration eftablifhing the 6 Councils imports, that the Regent was of Opinion, that for futtaining the Weight of the Regenc. y, it was txpe- dient to eftablifh at fivft feveral particular Ccuncils, in which the principal Matters requiring the immediate Care of the Sovereign may be difcuffed and regulated, in order to an ultimate Decifion in the Council of the Regency. That hetheughc the better of this Form tf Government, becaure the Plan of it had been formed hy his Maj; fty's e" eceafed Father; who was pcrfwadtd that all the Authority of the feveral Branches of the Miniftry being united in one fingle Perfon, often becaroe too heavy a Burthen to him on whom it was laid, and might be dangerous to his Sovera/' gn 5 That it was fo difficult for Trurh to reach the Ears of a Prince, that ir was necelTary feveral Perfons fhould be equally eta'ilf. d to conveigh it ro him ; and that if a certain Number of Men both faithful and able were cot employed and ia- terefted in the Government, it would be almoft impU- fible to find at all times Perfoss qualified with frffj- cient Experience and Capacity, to fall the Stations loft: vacant by Men of cor. fummate Knowledge in publicJc ^ ffiir » , and make their Lofs to be thjlefs f; lt. That ... - . — - this Eftablilhmeat of different Council! for different Bulinefs is not a Novelty, the like being prnflifed with Succefs is other Kingdoms, and having been ufed even in France during the Reigns of feveral Kings. That the Diforder iato. which 25 Years War and many other Calamities have caft the Monarchy," aad the ardent De- fire with which tbe Quality of King infpirei his Majefty ro reftore all things to their natural Order, aad to rt- eftablifh the publick Credit and Tranqsility, are Mo- tives chat corroborate the Advice given his Majefty on this Subject by the Duke of Orleans; who being charg- ed with the Adminiftration tifl his Majefty's Majority> is moft Solicitous to put then into his Majrfty's Hands a peaceful and flourishing Kingdom, and to attain thereto by Means which may fhew all hii Subjefls, that he e » - deavoursonly to difcover and ta empl y Merit and Vit" tue ; that he is defiroui all good Subj- fts, and efpecially thofe of higheft Birth, fhouli exhibit to others Exam- ples of labouring continually for the Good of their Na- tive Country; that all Affairs may be regulated rather by unanimous Concert, than by the way of Authority; and that Peace being faithfully kept abroad with our Neighbours, may at the fame time reign at home by the Union of Men of all Degrees in the Kingdom.

We cannot but wonder there fhould be found among us any fo void of Reafon ai not to ewn the De- liverance, but would prevent the happy Effe& s thereof by Tumults and Rebellion. We have obterv'd for feveral Years paft, that the pernicious Deligns of wicked and treacherous Men have been carry'd on under the fpecious Pretence of Zeal for the Cfeu ch, thereby impofing on and deluding unthink- ing People ; Whereas it is evident that thofe very Per- foas by their lace Behaviour towards your Majefty and their Fellow Subjetts, difcover as littleReligioa as Loy- al: y.
