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.

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. The Danes thereupon arm the Ships they fa�d to Greenland ; the Dutch on their Siae do the fame ; fothatunlcis tonne means hi fpeedily fvandoutof ad.
