H.gLC, April 13 Notwithfhnding the late Sec c:lb of the Britiih Squadron in the Wett Indies, it is rut only rumoured, but even affured here, that an a-micible Accommodation is at hjnd. What gives rile to this Belief is, the froquent Ccn;er*:nces the Se-crerary of the French Embafly (the Marquis de rene-Ion being Hill at Pari.-) has with the Miuiifers of the Republic!-:. As to the Marquis de St. GiL'es, that Gentleman has been (bmewhat indifpoied thefe two or three Days part, nor has he appeared in Psblkk ; fo hard a Matter is it for a Spatiard, thb' a Miniiier and a poiiricaf Man, to diffemWfe, or put on a chear-ful Countenince, when the H;art is fad .' His Excellency, when he does talk of publick AfLirs at his own Fable, contents hfm&lf with, faying, That the pre'ent War ira lofing one to England, tho' fhe fhould demulifli never fo many Towns, feeing ffie has no Intention, arid if fhe hid, would not be fuffercd by a!-i-.ioil all the Power* in Europe to poffefs herfeif of tied.

The King has appointed M de BufTy, hererofore his Miaifier at Vienna, to go to-refide in the fame quality at London, 'Phi- Minifter has, on many Oecaiions, giveri Proufs of hi3 Capacity. G E Letters which'the Marquis de la Mina h?.s receiv'd from his Court, greatly depreciate the Advantages gained by the Englith in taking Porto Bello : It is therein pretended, that the War between ths two Nations was not declared in America before that Place was taken, and that therefore the committiig . taken in at the ringing of a little Bell. 1, F.

That uiiat has bwn faid of an Accommodation between the t\*. o Crowns is by no means, to be drpended on, fince we are affured, that the Czarina, fo far iicm a Dcfire to yield up the Fortrefs of Wyburg, is relolved to keep the Couritrie-;1 conquered from ovveden by the Czar Peter the Great, infills tirat every thiaij remain as it was fettled at the Congress cf N\;':ad:, and will not bate an Ace of whrr relates to the Dutchy of Cour-l.Tnd : And rhhey aed, that 'tis for thete Regions the CirrfaX '.is determined to reinforce the Troops fhe ha: alre.ijy in thoic conquered Countries.

They write from a little Town near Infpruck in Tirol, that feme Days, ago four Women in that Place tnem : That Spain, by taking the Dutch and French | of fuch Hoflilkies was not jufilfiable by the Law of vVoul.'en Manufadiures, which are cheaper than the , Nations ; but thefe Reafons do no way excufe the En" iih can fubfitt without Jjngbnd ; but England,' poor Defence which the Garrifon of that Place made. 0 ' - -- G E They write from B-flia, that they h.ve received Advice that the Barcn de Droit.

G E Portfmouth April 5. On Thuifday laft was launched at our Dock, the St. George, a fecond Rate of 90 Guns. There are 14 Sail of Men of War at Spithead.
