In order to be better able to defray the large Expences which this new War will probably occafion, the Senate has reprefented to the Emprefs the Neccffity of fizp-pre/Eng of Luxury, and the Banishment of the Jews, who greatly contribute to the promoting thereof. In Confe-quence wereof an Edift has been publifh'd, forbidding both Men and Women to wear Stuffs of Gold and Silver, or any Habits embroider1 d or laced ; and another Edict has' been publifh'd for banifhing the Jews, who have offer'd a confiderable Sum to prevent this Edicl from being put in Execution , but the Clergy, who have great Credit here, have caufed their Offers to be rejected.
