I Prorogation of Parliament. Parliament was prorogued on Thursday last, after an existence of eight years. The King's Speech was read by the Lord Chan- cellor in the presence of Lords and Com- moners as follows:- The occasion on which I address you marks the close of a period which will be for ever memorable in the history of our country. The war, upon which all the energies of my people throughout my Dominions have for more than four years been concen- trated, have at length been brought to a triumphant issue. The conclusion of an armistice with the last of the Powers that have been ranged against us promise at no distant date of an honourable and enduring ?ace. I have already sought an opportunity of expressing publicly to my peoples and to my Allies the sentiments of heartfelt ad- miration and gratitude with which I regard the supreme and self-sacrificing devotion that has led to thi& glorious result. The exertions which have carried us to victory in the field must in no wise be abated or slackened until the ravages of war have been repaired and the fabric of our national prosperity has been restored. Through the extension of the suffrage which this Parliament has carried into effect, all classes of my people will have an opportunity of inspiring and guiding this beneficent undertaking. trust that the spirit of unity which has enabled us to surmount the perils of war will not be wanting in the no less arduous task of establishing on the sure foundation of ordered liberty the common welfare of my people.
