From the preface: The most important circumstance of the present year was, the entire liberation of the territory of France from the chains under which it had been hitherto held by the occupation of a large part of its domains by the great Powers who had taken possession of it. ~ The state of Spain appears to have undergone a process of deterioration, in which the financial system has been gradually more and more involved, so that it has at length sun into almost total ruin. ~ In the kingdom of Portugal, the territory of Montevideo still remains attached to the national dominion. The king, who is at present at Rio Janeiro, whence there is no prospect of his return to Portugal, has published a royal alvara, or law, to enforce the articles of the late convention with the British government for the abolition of the Slave trade north of the Equator. ~ Two of the most remarkable documents will be found relating to North America, and to the English governments in the East Indies.
