As the Dyet advance in their De liberations, we perceive mere and more th-t the Mrafures taken in the laft will be clotely foilow'd : The greatelt Unanimity r;jgns among�tbe Nobility, and the other Orders of the Kingdom appear fu'/y convinced 0/ the Ntceffity of thofe Meafures. The fecret Committee will forthwith make a Report of their De'iterations to the D>et, after which the States will take a final Refolution, which we expert will be a very remarkable one. Sweden, by the good Order which has been re eftjbliffced in her Finances, and the Alii ances fhe has made, finds her fclf in a Condition to give great Weight to her ReWutions, Our Troops having be n augmented to 80,000 Men, we can, in cafe of need, reinforce our Army in Finland to 50 or 60 000 Men.

SJE M. de Grave, Agent of the Aulick Council, having refuted to divell himfelf of the Ch racier of Reiident from the King of Pruflia, which he bore, the Court has order'd him to retire .within eight Days fiom her Majelly's Dominions. A few Days ago a Spaniard of the highefl Di-ftinction, who has refided here thefe teveral Years, was arretted and carried to the Caiile of Neulladt: He appears to be the Duke d'Uzeda, who formerly had a Penfion from the Crown of Spain of 15coo Florins. The Queen fent 30 of the Guards with a Captain to apprehend him, and his Papers are all tejz'd and carry'd to Court. ! he Marquis de Pacheco has alfo been apprehended, and commuted Trihner to Neulladt, for holding, as 'tis faid, an unlawful Correfpondence with Spain. Many more Perfons are taken in:o Cuftody, the Names unknown, only 'tis faid n of 'cm are Men of Confequencs, and one of them a Spanifli Officer of the Regiment of Lorrain: And all portable Search is making, after another Perfon in the Confpiracy, if not \ at the Head of it, who was very converfanc with a great many confiderable Famiie.-of that City, foretime? iif the Drefs of an Abbe, and at other times in a Liy-IIibr.

DA This Place is the more conliderable, ra it is the Key of Silefia on the Side of Hungary, from whence there lies no other Paflage into that Province. SJE News airived to-day, that a Body of 1500 Aufi-ian Troops had come to attack the Baarg cf Fridec near Trrp-pau, wherein was a Garrifon of 500 Mm, command d by M-jor Mtmcftovv ; but had been repuifed with the io:s o! about 60 Men killed, befides the wounded.
