4 de May de 1836 - Se suprime una insurrección ultra-liberal con ayuda inglesa (453)

On the 4th of May, an insurrection broke out in the turbulent city of Barcelona; the governor-general, Parreno, supported by the troops of the line, and aided by the co-operation of several companies of English marines, who appeared with colours flying, in the streets, attacked the insurgents, consisting principally of the national guards, and dislodged them from some houses, into which they had thrown themselves, though not without a combat attended by very considerable loss of life. But the spirit of the ultra-liberals was not discouraged by this check, and without again resorting to open violence, they laboured steadily to disseminate their anarchical doctrines, and to enlist the surrounding towns and municipalities under the banner of revolt. They were so far successful, that various symptoms of sedition were displayed in different quarters of Catalonia, and even beyond the borders of that province. The national guards of six towns, including Girona and Rosas, signed an address to the queen, in which, premising their regret at the seditious conduct of the revolters at Barcelona, they told her majesty, that the occurrences in that city evidently proved, that the military agents in her service were but executioners, and that they could not behold without indignation, English soldiers, calling themselves allies, steeping their bayonets in the blood of Spaniards. ” Those cruel auxiliaries had deserved the implacable hatred vowed against them by the national guards.” After proceeding in a strain of great violence, they ” humbly begged of her majesty to replace the civil and military authorities of Barcelona, By men combining patriotism with humanity, and demanded, that the English vessels, stationed in that port, for the last two years and a half, might be immediately withdrawn ; or, at least, ” that orders might be given forbidding a single man to be landed on the soil of Catalonia.” Meanwhile the two ringleaders of the late revolt, were seized, and one, Xandero, executed. But the city still continued in imminent peril, and General Parreno transmitted a melancholy statement of the condition and prospects of the place to the government. “The events of the 4th,” he wrote, ” the favourable termination of which was solely due to the aid of the English corps from the Rodney, have so exasperated the people, that I apprehend at every instant the desertion of all my soldiers. I have already been abandoned by the national guard. The civil authorities though apparently wishing to second the measures I have taken to restore tranquility, are devoid of good feeling and courage. At the approach of night, they are no longer to be seen, and God only knows where to find them. Their example is followed by all the citizens, who have anything to lose.”
