The King jadging that thi> Admiral did not punctually obey his Orders, his Majelly has taken the Command of that Squadron from him, and given it to \ ice-Admiral Don Ro-drigQe de Torros, who fet out yefterday for Ferrol ; and it Lfaid he has Older; to go in quett of the Eng lifh Squ.uiion in the Mediterranean. ,     L F. Rome, June 2", N. S. 7 here was a great Commotion this Week in the Conclave all Tuelday laft, becaule it was fuppoi'd that cn that Day a Pope would be eltt5kd. The Election is like to fall on Cardinal Firrao, a Neapolitan, who was Secretary ol State to the late Fopc. He hath already had 28 Votes ; and it was thought he would have more ; but tiie Election hath not yet taken Piace. G E Cardinal Ccnci was fo well in Health, that the Day before vtlierday Le \yas ab'e to aiM at die S;ru- Engagements with Great Britain, in cafe the Jhould happen to be attack'd.

He advifes the undertaking at ths fame time the Sieee of PortMahon, in order to oblige the Englilh by that Diverfion to havea Squadron Upon the Coafts of Cata'onia. But thefe are look'd upoa by the moll intelligent Part of Mankind here, as �n-terpnzes that the Spaniards alone arc by no means equal to ; and that its being given out by tineir General that they are intended to be put in Execution, is dorfi with a political View to keep up the Spirits of the People, by making them believe that the Spanilh Court has it many Ways in its Power to diitreis Great Britain. G � A iort of Rupture is juil upon the Point of breaking out'ettween cheRepubhck and the Court of Denmark, in reipect to the Navigation upch the Coafts of Greenland. The King ot Denmark, purfaant to his Jail Edict, intends to maintain his Right of Sovereignty in tnofe Seas. I he States Genera! who never yet acknowledg'd it, utterly refuft to own it at pretent.
