From Saturday January the 17th, to Tuesday January the 20th, 1740. Ycfterday atrivad two British Packets, which brought two Holland Mails. TURKEY. Cenflantinople, November 16. COunt d'Uhlefeldt having received an Account of the Death of the Emperor, immediately acquainted the Grand Vizir therewith, to whom he declar'd, that the Archdutchefs Mary Therefa, who by Virtue of the Preg-raatick Sanction fucceeds to all the Kingdoms and States of the late Emperor, would app]y herfelf with the ftrictelt Attention to cultivate a good Underftanding and Friendfllip with the Pone; fince which the Grand Vizir has given Count d'Uhlefeldt the llrcngeft Afforances of the good Intentions of the Grand Sigrior to lm in Peace with the Queen of Hungary, and faithlully to execute all the Conditions ftipulated by the Treaty of Belgrade. G E The Count had alfo a long Conference with the AmbafTa-dor of France, of whom he a^k'd, Whether the Agreement enter'd into by his mod Chriftian Majefty to guaranty the Treaty o( Belgrade, extended to the Princefs, Heirefs to the late Emperor? To which that Ambaflkdor anfwer'd, That the Princefs having fucceeded not only to all the Eftates,. but alfo to all the Rights poflefs'd by his lare imperial Majefty, the Treaties and Alliances concluded during the Life of that Prince ought to fobfift in their fullert Extent, and conicquently the Guaranty of the Treaty of Belgrade. This Ambaffddor has likewife further promis'd the Count to exert himfelf in the moft effectual Manner, to remove all Difficulties in cafe any faould arife on that Account. G E As foon as the News of the Emperor's Death was made publick, fome Commotions appear'd among the Peop'e, who pretended to advife the Porte how to aft in the prefent Conjuncture; but fuch wifeMeifu.es were taken, as pre-vented thefe Difbrdeis from having any bad Confequences. GE The Porte has receiv'd an Exprefs from Syria, which brings an Account, that frefh Troubles are broke out in that Province, that the Inhabitants of Damas took up Arms a-gainft the Bafhaw, and that he was in great Danger of being maflacred. G E RUSSIA. Petersborgh, Dec. ao. Count Munich is ftill indifpofed Tha Phyficians of the Court fc^rce ever leave the Apartment of chat Lord. The Rsfolution which General Keith, who commands in the Ukraine, difcovered when he receiv'd the News of the Change which happened upon the Death of the Emprefs, is Hill talfc'd of here with Admiration. He at the fame time received Order* to take the Oaths according to the Form prescribed, ano to alio tender them to the Officers and Ttoops. The Gineral having been informed by Lettars from his Friends at Petersburgh, of the Intrigues that had been made ufe of during the Hindis of the Emprefs, judged from thence, that the Rt gency of the Duke of Codj-htid would meet with great Oppei'njon ; whereupon, having taken his Refolution, he aff mbled the Generals and ether OfEc n, and fp�ke to them to the following Purpofe : * Gentiemen, * I have received the fad and moft deplorable News of the ' Death of her Imperial M. jelly, our moft gracious Sove-' reign.   Here is the Form 01 the Oath fent to be taken, in * which Obedience and Fidelity is not limited to the tacred ' Peifon of his Imperial Majvfty, but is to extend likewife ' to the Duke of Courland. in quality of Regent.   I de- * dare to you, Gentlemen, ttut I will take the Oath of * Fidsliry and Obedience to our prefer* moft gracious Em- * peror John the 3d with Joy : That I am ready to facriflce * my Blood for him, and for his auguft Parents : That next ' to his Imperial Majrfty I am ready to obey and fubmit to * them ; but I do aot think proper to bind my felt by any * Oath to the Duke of Cbtirland. This opennef* made Impreffion upon feveral Officers, who followed the Example of Genenl Keith; but many cth�rs took the Oath according to the Form, aliedging, that ftoald they refufe to take it, they would expofe themfelves to* much to the Refentmcat of the Dake of Courland. - GE DENMARK.

There can be no pofitive Judgment yet formed of the Sentiments of the Court, in relation to the King of Pruffia's entering into Silefia; if we may judge by outward Appearance, it does not feem very well fatisfied therewith.

In the interim, as great Preparations of War are carrying on here as the Seafon will permit. The Baron de Bercke, Minifter from the King of Pruffia, keeps himfelf altogether within his Houfe, and has forbid all his Domefticks from going abroad without the utmoft Necefliry, for fear of be.ng ill treated by the Populace. 'Tis reported that the Turks have committed fome Hoftilities npon the Frontiers of Tranfylvania, but no particulars has yet been received thereof.
