The Court of" Spain had entertain'd fo great an Antipathy to Cardinal Fleury, that it is not to be doubted bat that the News of his Death was receiv'd at Madrid with high Pleafure, v^here the flattery them-felves with finding for the future the Court of France more favourably djfpos'd towards them. This Hatred to the Cardinal was fo violent, that the Marquis de Caftelar, during his Refich?nce at Paris, and afterwards the Marquis de las Minas, had exprefs Orders to exert themfelves to the utrnoft, in order to caufe that Prime Minifter to be difgraced. The Court of Spain will probably at leaft draw this Advantage from the Death of his Eminence, viz. that France will not perhaps labour fo earneftly to perfuade the Emperor toaccommodateMatters wirh the Queen of Hungary upon the Terms of pre-ferving his Territories, and thofe of an Uti pojjidetis, towards effefting whereof the utmoft Pains have undoubtedly been taken for more than fix Months pair. At prefent the Court of Madrid will renew its Remonftrances, and ftew, that if the Emperor makes Peace with her Majefty of Hungary, this Princefs will be in a Condition ef preserving, without any Difficulty, all her Territories in Italy, from whence fhe would prefently drive the Spaniards. In fhort, if France fhould ever fo little now contribute to traverfe the Defigns of Spain, which begia to take a favourable.Turn, this.laft Court would not tail of. taking the firft Opportunity of revenging itfelf. It's certain that France has but little Reafon to difturb herfelf about what may happen from thefe Circumftances, which in Reality ought to determine his moft Chriftian Majefty to finiih a Wax. which exhauihs h\� Pecpfe" of tl&i*Ji}''jf% We hear there is a &Txmg^Matcfa concluded on between William Chitham and Smallwodd jun. for Ten Pounds and the whole Houfe, which will be decided on Wednefday next, at the ufual Place at Tottenham-Court. 'Tis thought by feveral Judges and Lovers of that manly Exercife, that it will be one of the fevereft and fmarteft Battles that has been fought for a long while. Great Numbers of Gentlemen and Ladies refort to the j Virginia CofFee-Houfe behind the Exchange, to fee the three furprifing Rattle-Snakes, alive, and full of Vigour, altho' they have receiv'd no manner of Suftenance above thefe eight Months; as alfo a curious Combo, alive, from the Eaft Indies; with a great many Things in Shell-Work, and other Curiofities, too many tb mention here. The Price for feeing thefe Things is One ShiHing each Perfon. For feveral Days paft fome of the Royal Family, and abundance of the Nobilky and Gentry, have reforted to the Rummer Tavern at Charing-Crofs, to fee the wonderful Gigantick Milk-white Ox, and the furprifiHg Lilliputian or Dwarf Cow, which have given fuch general Satisfaction, as to be allow'd the greateft Oppoiites of Nature that have ever been feen in thefe Dominions. They will continue to be fhewn every Day this Week, and no longer,-from Eight in the Morning till Eight at Night. The wonderful Artift from Norwich, who has given fuch general Satisfaction to moft of the Nobility at Charing-Crofs, is now to be feen at the Manfion Houfe and French Horn, oppofite the Manfion-Houfe. This wonderful young Man, being twenty-two Years of Age, never had the Ufe of either Hands, Arms, Legs or Feet; weighs but four Stone two Pounds, and is but two Foot long; and has as comely a Face as moft Men. He writes with his Mouth, Gentlemens Coats of Arms, and. plays at Cards; djjajws -----. . . _ . fure, without having any Profpect of drawing therefrom , with feveral other Performances too tedious to mention, the leaft Advantage, except that of fetting the Germans ] He is to be feen at any Time of the Day, from Ten in the together by the Ears, and making them mutually deftroy Morning till Eight at Night, and no later. . one another in fuch a manner, as that one may with Ludgate Prifon, Feb. 15.

LONDON. Whitehall, Feb. 15. The King has been pleas'd to con-ftitute and appoint John Stevenfon, Efq; to be Lieutenant and Lieutenant-Colonel; Thomas Goddard, Efq; to be Cornet and Major; William Peter, Efq; to be Guidon and Major; Charles Dartiquenave, Gent, to be Brigadier and Lieutenant; and Richard Davenport, Gent, to be Adjutant and Lieutenant, to the Fourth Troop of Horfe-Guards. General Wentwbrth is gone down- to Whitchurch in Hants, to offer himfelf a Candidate for that Borough, in the room of Charles Clarke, Efq; now a Baron of the Exchequer. .'Tis faid that Admiral Mathews will be a Candidate for the City of Rochefter, in the room of Admiral Vernon. We hear by a Claufe in the Infolvent Debtors Bill, that all Perfons who have receiv'd any Benefit from any other Afts, will be excluded from having any Benefit in this. The Merchants have receiv'd the following Advices from Providence, relating to the two Prizes taken by the Privateers belonging to Philadelphia : That one carried four Carriage and two Swivel Guns, and 62 Men ; her Cargo, according to the Bill of Lading, valued at 330001. Sterling, befides private Trade. The other was a Settee, or Packet-Boat, from Cadiz, carrying two fix-pounders, 44 Men, and fmall Arms in proportion; had on board 22 Tons and a half of Quickfilver, upwards of 200 Barrels of Wine, feveral Tons of Iron, and ten Chefts of fmall Arms; fhe was valued at 120001. Sterling. The Montford, Capt. Heaflup, the Princefs Amelia, Capt. ^Martin, and the Exeter, Capt. Wilfon, from London for Eaft-India, with the other outward-bound Ships that fail'd oat of the Downs on Saturday laft, got fafe to Spithead on Monday Morning, and there remain Wind-bound. We hear that Capt. Bofcawen, of the Firft Regiment of Foot-Guards, will foon have a Company in that Regiment. They write from Wootton-Baffet in Wiltfhire, that on Sunday the 30th of January, about Eleven in the Forenoon, a Fire broke out at the Houfe of Mr. Stephen Pearfe, a Wheelwright, near the Church, which greatly alarm'd the Congregation, and the whole Town, and in an Hour and Half's Time it deftroy'd eighteen Houfes ; by which Mif-fcrtune many People were entirely ruin'd. equally divided by the Steward on the Common Side. Such a worthy Example is a great Prefervation of faving of Numbers of unfortunate Men and Women from inevitably perilhing under their moft miferable Circumftances. BAN K R U P T S.
