L fe : Hambourg, June 3. Our Letters from Stockholm of the 27th of iaft Month fay. that the Swedes continue their Warlike Preparations with as much Vigour as ever; the Magat:.-;es are filling with all forts of Provifiom and AVariike Stores; their Gall^sire fitting up with ail pofiible Diligence; and two- Yatchr.3 are getting teady at Stockholm, in order to b$ lent to> Carcifcroon with Money for the Fleet! ( .,� L 5 Hague, June 6, N S The great Animcfitl� that iliil iubfiit, and ieem ready to break oat-into i Ftajne* between the Swedes and RuiEans, oceafion no JSTiall UneafnirL at feveral Courts of Europe. The Kings oi Pola- d and Prumi have endeavoured to pacity hit Cxamn Majeity, ard hinder her fiotn reiimting .the intanded Invafion of Rufiian Finland by the Swedes, while fhe had her Hands full with che i urk. An&fe is not at all to be ooubted. but the King of jGreatfici-^ tain, during his Stay at Havcver, wili, aeewding i$ Prudence (hall direct, employ his beft Offices to tnS fame good end. It is true, the Conduct of the SyvetJi of late, has been fuch, as to deferve no extt2cr�3itiary Ails of Kifldnefs at our Hands; bat what we don*$ do in Love to them, we muff do in Kindrrefs to our-felvcs; it infinitely imports the Trade of Great Britain, and the Prefervation of the Balance of Power in the North, that the Rufiian fhould Hot enlargs his Conquefts on the Bahick ; 00 that Side he is to be confidered at his Ne plus ultra. He is already poffef-fed of Ingria, Livonia, and the one half of Finland* and was he to make h mfelf Maflerof the other Half of that Country (a Thing he can eafily do if not bin1 dered by a Power ftiperior to that Of Sweden) he would be abiolute Sovereign of the Eaft Seas, and con-fequent y of the whole Baltick: Great Britain is therefore in a kind of Dilemma, as Matters ftand at prefent between her and her open and fecret Enemies, the Friendfli p of the Emprefs of Ruffia is of no final! Confequencc; and yet, that Friendfhip is not to be bought a: too dear a Rate, by fuffering her further to aggranoile herlelf with th� Spoils of Sweden, and to reign ible MiilreL of the Trade in the North. In order to manage this Affair, which is fomewhat delicate, our Court has fet the States General, arid the above-mentioned Kings of Poland and Pruffia to negociate an Accommodation ; being very earnetl that thac ihould be done, but rather thto' the Canal of others, than her'own. Gfi LONDON, May 29 and 31. From the Hague, May 31, The Iaft Advices re^ ceiv'd there from Vienna fay, that Mr. Robinfon, Minilter of his Britifh Majeity at that Court, has communicated to the Emperor the Purport of the Com-miffion which Mr. Finch is charg'd to ex?Cute at Pe-tersbourg, and has 3t the fame deoar'd to his Imperial Majefty, that the Court of Great Britain is in fome tort affur'd of the Acceffion of the King of Poland, Eleftor of Saxony, tnc Kings of Prufha ard Denmark, and that his Britannick Majeity ftarter'd hira-felf that the Empe.-or would likewife accede tliereto, fince tfeis would be the only effectual means of re-eila-blifhing a neceflary Equilibrium in the North, and, even in Europe. But his Imperial Majefty, without either approving or dilapproving the propos'd Alliance, has taken time to confider of it. "L E Private Letters from Paris advife, that the foreign Minifters at that Court take great Pains to difcover th* Kcfulj
