Y the laft Ships from the Levant tame Letters from Smyraa, dated the Beaming of laft Monih, which advife, that they had Letters of a fre/h Date from - - Perfia, which fay, that Koali Kan in order to renew his Hoftilities only waited for an Anfwer from the Pjw to the iaft Propofals which be caufed to bs made by his Minifters there concerning his Pre-tenfions to Armenia and that Part of Diarbeck which was formerly iubject to Perfia , that in cafe they are not comply'd with, he intended to march in Perfon a g.tinft Armenia, ^nd to fend his Army which i� en camp'd on the Euphrates to acl again!} Diarbeck ; but that they fay in Turkey, that his For�s are not fo g'eat as was given out , that he endeavoured to ingratiate himfeif with trie Pub ick by taking off the Taxes impofed by former Governments, but that the Party of the two laft Sophy's Hill held up their Heads in feveral of the Provinces, and propofed to cut out Work for him if he fhould offer to ftir out of the Country.

The Number of the King's Minifters at foreign Courts is increasing', but for as muchas his Majefty's Allowance is infafficfentfor thefe purpofes, the" Perfon honour'd with that'Character is cblig'd to make good the De ficfency out of his own Revenues, and be fubjeft to great Expeoces.

L E AMERICA. Bolton, June 2. On Tuefday laft his Excellency the Governor made the following Speech to both Houfes of the General AiTembly. SJE Gentlemen of the Council, and Houfe of Re-prelentatives, I have lately receiv'd his Majefty's Orders relating to an Expedition defign'd againft fome of the King of Spain's fettlements in the Weft-Indies, which {hall be communicated to you : Wherein yau will find the King's juft Expectations from his Provinces in North America; feveral of which have already fhewn their Zeal to his Majefty's Service and Honour, as well as to the Intereft of their Country, by giving a hand-fome Encouragement to Men to eniift in this Service. It is an Affair of luch Confequence 10 the Honour of his Majefty's Crown, and may prove of fuch Advantage to all his American Dominions, and in an efpeciai manner to this Province, that I moft earneftly recommend to you the doing every thing on your part to encourage fo noble an Enterprife. Since the Sitting of the laft AiTembly, Lieutenant Governor Clark of New York has fent me what has pafs'd there, refpefting the Settlement of the Boundary between this Province and that, which fhall be laid before you: And 1 (hall be glad fach.Meafures may be fallen upon, as may briqg that Aftair to a juftana amicable I flue. , Gentlemen of the Houfe of Representatives, The unhappy Proceedings of the laft Houfe of Re-prefematives in refofing to draw in the Bills they were obb'g'd to by Law, and to make Provifion for the Payment of the pubiick Debts, or for neceflary Defence of the Province, I hope will Simulate yoa to make thefe things your early Care. I do in a very particular manner recommend to yOnr Conflderatron the weaic end defencelefs Condition of Ca file-William, as reprefcmedto me by the Hon. Lieutenant Governor Phipps, the Commander there, and aifb what i have received from the Commanders of the other Forts and Garrifons of the Province. Gentlemen of the Council, and Houfe of Representatives, The Law which retrained private Traders with the Indians expir'd, and having received freqaent Accounts of the great Abufes practis'd upon them by fuch Traders, I think it afcfoJutely neceffary that a Bill fhould be prepar'd to be pafs'd into a Law, forbidding all fuch Traders for the future, that fo the Trade of the Province may be carry'd on- in Confor mity to theTreaties with thofe People: Which would not only prevent the Injnftice and Oppreffion they fnffer from private Traders, but would alfo have a natural Tendency to lengthen ont the Peace and Fnendfhip now fubfifting with them. Th* Term for which your Excife was famVd is near expiring; you will therefore take the needful Care about it; and if yoa rais'd the' Excife in Eaie of the Impoft, it would be agreeable to the Wifdom of all Nations; and to enlarge it, particularly to Rum, and all ather fpiriruous Liquors, might be fome Re-nramt on the great intemperance which People of (he belt Figareancl Virtue among us are daily co*plaiu> mg of. Gentlemen, I hope yoaf will drHgtttly apply yourfetves to fach Things as may moft of ail promote the pubiick Good, on which yoa will always be fore off my hearty Con-fent. Mayzo, 1740. J. BELCHER.

The Affairs of Spain are whst the Government is at present employ'd in. Tho' it's not at all doubted but that fome of the Pr> vincti m gag'd M. Vander Meer to make Overtures of a \r-a-trality to the Spanifh Miniflry, yet that Em bsffa^J >r has not yet explain'd himf  cJ^a-ly as feem'd to be neceffary : It's believ'd that he wii; not be further prefa'd upan this Subject, be auf of rhe. Events which might poffibly be the confeournce of bis difcovering who it was that pat him uponinaking Overtures of that Natwe.- Is the me n itmc M Vander Meer cosrinna at Madrid in the m tl .rrf-agreeableSitoatwn; for, befides the Uneafineu which the States Genetal have occafion'd him, in difcOve ing his Tranfacijons with the Marquis de Villarias> in relation to a Neutrality, the Court of Madrid is like-wife greatly nettled, that the Republick forms exactly the fame Pretentions, in regard to Commerce and a free Navigation in America, as theEngi.fh.
