TH E News cf the Death of the Fmprcfs of Ruffia ccming fo Toon after that of the Emperor of the Romans, occafion'd great Agitations in the Divan, in which there are two Parties; ore maintained, that the Pe.ce with the Chriitian Powers ought re ligioufljr to be mairtained, repreienting the Danger the Ottoman Empire would be exposed co upon entering into a new War, fent'g Thamas Kouli kan, who for a ccnfiderable time has tineatened an irruption, would not fail of taking fo favourable an Opportunity for executing his D^figns.

Orders have been fent to Holftein for augmenting the Cavtlry with 18 Men to each Troop, and the Foot wi h 1 7 Men per Company.

Three Days ago f rty Huflars entered this City in fpite of the Ensmy difpe.fed in the neighbouring Villages, and tint fame Night they made a fa'ly with our Volunteers to Neuwa:de, where they fell upon forty Pruffians and two Officers, of whom they took every Man Prifoners except one of the Officers, who would not iccept of Quarter ; and they brought them all into this place, with 27 Horfes, three Baggage Waggons, a Load of Bread, and a Sum of Money belonging to the Regiment.   Among thefe prifoners were 17 Defcrters from the Garrifon of Oh-lau, who were hang'd on the fpot.   We are afiured that the Veldt Marfhal de Schwerin has propofed to the City of Brcflau to admit a Garrifon of 6000 Pruflians, and that his Propofel is of fuch a Nature that the Magillrates know not how to evade it.   'Tis reported that the Pruffi ins intend to bombard this Town a fecond Time, as well as the FortrcfTcs ofGlogawand Brieg. SJE Vienna, Feb. 11.   There is greater likelihood than ever of an Accommodation between this Court and thit of Mu nich.   The Qneen appears highly fatisfy'd with the Letter wrote ber by the King of France, wherein that Prince acknowledges her Title as Queen of Hungary and Bohemia. That Letter was accompanied by arother wrote by the Cardinal de Fleury.   Six thoufand Croatian* have offered their fervice to the Queen to be employ'd in Siiefia, but 'tis not known whether their Offer will he accep ed, becaule thefe Troops have nothing in view bur to p!u. der and treat Friends and Enemies alike. For the lame Realon the Court has refus'd to accept of twelve thoufand Men offered by the Palatine of Cracovia.   The Que.n has appo nted a Com-miffion to enquire into the Cundudt ot the Duke d'Uleda, who was taken up a few Dayt ago: feveral Crimes are charged upon that Nobleman, tome of them fo lhocking, that the/ ought to be well proved before they are rqadc of an Emparofe--'-f% Vienna, Fe6r'tiarfiiiBBMi8^a f-w Days three more Conferences have been rw^P^^^^eicoce of the Grand Dulce, the firft of which was in Drf^mlies of a Courier from Ruffia, "the next upon thofe ofcrj^Rn England, and' the third on the military flairs relating to Bohemia and Moravia.

But a>Agfeiunpfos arejj^p Toon to he-expecl- Princefs will think it the beli Way to coma to an amicable Accommodation with the King of Pruffia, the (ooner the better, before the Siltfian Affairs dwindle into a worfe fitu-ation. MS Hanover, Feb. 24. There is a Report current here, that two Princes wilt be veiled with the Electoral Dignity before the Election of a new Emperor cames on, and thit the Houfes of Heffe-CafiU and Saxe Gotha have already many Votes in their favour.
