A Courier /rum Pari-, and another from MacYid are m rived there, with Difpatches relating to a new Alhance between his Sardinian Majesty and die Cou ts o; Verlaiiles and Madrid.

D P v Vienna, May 17. It is reckon'd that the Citadel of Belgrade will be entirely dem'ohfh'd the 1 oth of next Month ; and as' foon as that Place is evacuated and put into the Hands of the Turks, but not before; The Ceremony of exchanging the Imperial and Tur kifh Smbafladors'will be performed on the Frontiers. The Court has remitted 40CO Florins to General Schcrrrettau; to tnabie him fo bear the Charges of that Cercmopy. It is. (aid that the Emperor has jnnted to thV Count d'Uhlefeldt the Survivorship of the Poftof Prefident of the Aulick Council' of the Empire,, actually held by the Count de Wurmbrandt. ..... - DP ' Count de Neuperg has been dangeroufly ill fince his Arrival at Gratz in Bohemia, but is at preient much better.

Since the News arrived from Cadiz of a Sea-Fight on the 1 -rfh of February between Admiral Don Blaife de Lecce and Admiral Vernon, wearefo much the more impatient to hear a Confirmationof it, becaufctoatwas the very Day w hich the Engliftj Admiral had fix'd upon for attacking Carthagena. We hope this Town wiil make a bet-tec Defence than Porto Bello did. It is to be obferv'd in regard to the latter, that a Resolution was taken two Years ago to alter and augment its Fortifications, in as much as the "Catties, which were its-only Defence, were built in the oM Way and ill flanked. M; de Chavigny had two Conferences this Week w-ith the Marquis de Villarias. It is thought that after that Minifter's Arrival at Lisbon we ihall hear whethertbeKingof Portugal will join his good Offi-e�;�.dw&ci foac�twrP��ei^ in rdcr ta bring" about a Peace between Spain and England : This, however, is certain, that the laft Courierdifpatched from Lisbon to Paris, carried Difpatches on this Affair.

G f-Letters from Paris bring Advice that the French Court has fent new Inductions to her Embafladors at Petersburgh and Stockholm, about the Affairs in the North; and the Earl of Waldegrave has lately had two Conferences with Cardinal de Fleuiy, to ccfifult Means to bring about a Sufpenfion of Arms between England and Spain.
