Petetjfburg, March t6. % a Courier difpatch'd from Fmlaad, the Court has receiv'd the agreeable News that the Ifles of Aland had pat themfelves under the Protection of the Emprefs, and tnat the Inhabitants had taken the Oath of Fidelity, both to her Imperial Majefty and the Grand Prince Peter Jtdor&witz. Thefe Iflands are fituated between the Gulph of Bothnia and that of Fbiland. They are remarkable for the Conferences held there, previous to the Treaty of Peace figa'd at Neujiadt. The Britifh Minilier here has received an Exprefs from Stockholm, with Advice that the Ccurtof Sweden having been mform'd, both by the its Deputies here 'and its Plenipotentiaries at Abo, that the Emprefs would have the uti pofjiietis for the Bails of the approaching Treatyof.Peace, had immediately^nade flrong Reprefentations to the foreign Minifters, to obtain of. the Princes and States their" Matters a fpeedy Affiftance, according to the Engagements they had enterM into with Sweden; adding, that in Cafe ofReiufai, that Court would be oblig'd to reftore the Union of Calmar, &c. Vcldt-Marfhal Count Lafci will again command the Army deftin'd to act againft the Swedes, Dantxich, March 29.

Mantua, March 25. Count Traun,- before his Infantry pafs'd the Panaro, difparch'd a Courier to the Commander of the Piedmontefe Troops, to defire him likewife to ad-Vance with his Forces towards that River. Butlve have heard, that this Commander, in Anfwer to the Reqaeft of Count Traun, told him that he had receiv'd a Letter from the King of Sardinia^ infinuating, ' that it was on the Side * of Piedmont that the principal Force ought now to be ' employ'd, by Reafon of the Reinforcements Which the * King of Spain had fent to his Army in Savoy, and of ' the Preparations made by that Army to penetrate into * Italy: That therefore it was neceflary that the Troops ' which he had under his Command, fhoald keep them- * felves. in Redraeis to march to the Peaces which fhould * have the moftOccafibn for them: And that if Count Traun * could detatch feme Regiments from' his Army to march * into Piedmont, fucfi Succours would be of great Service, * not on)/ in preventing the Enemy from executing their ' Defign of penetrating into Italy, hat aMb in obliging * them to abandon Savoy.* General Traun dispatched on this Occafion a Courier to Vienna*, till the Return of whom he has countermanded the March of (ome Detachments which were yet to pafs the Panaro. Thofe which are already on the other Side of that River, are fortifying themfelves in the Polls they are.poffefs'd of. Bologna; March 24. Count Gages continues to make Preparations for putting in Execution the Defign he has for fome time paft be_en meditating. He has by a private Way receiv'd Letters from the Marquis de la Mina, which acquaint him that the Infant Don Philip only waits for the, Jaft Reinforcements which are coming to him from Spain? before he attempts to force a Paffage with his Army into italy. Turin, March 2:4. People here are veiy impatient to know what Conduct the Inhabitants of the Fatah will purfue, and the more fo, as they have been informed that the Infant Don Philip had offer'd them a, considerable Sum, in order to obtain a Paffage for the Spanifh Army thro' their Country. It's added , that this Offer having been at firtt rejected, the Marquis de la Mina had fent a fecret Emiffary to SVon, charg'd with frelhPro'pofitibns, ?nd likewife with Orders, in cafe of a fecond Refraal, to declare, that if they would'not amicably grant this Paffage, the infant knew how to obtain it by Force. According to the fame Adyices, it appears that this Menace had in a great Meafure intimidated the Regency of the Valais,. and had divided chem in their Opinions. The King has fent Orders to the Viceroy of Sardinia, to forbid the Inhabitants of that Iflahd to ififgfHSeddle in the Affairs of the iftand of Goifica, or in. any degree to favour the Schemes of the Baron de Neuhoff. - Dhfde'n, April r.

It has been determin'd in the College of the Princes, that the moft efficacious Means of re-eftablifhing Peace in, the Empire, was to employ therein the Mediation of the Germanhick Body, join'd with that ofthe Khtg-of Grtat Britain and the States General. This Affair is to oe carried into the two other Colleges of the Diet, to have alfo their Approbation. After which a Fefolution will be form'd, that will be foljpw'd with an Invitation to thefe two Powers, to join their Mediation to that ofthe Empire in this important Affair. But there is no likelihood of a Rcfolution being taken therein before the Election of a new Elector of Mentz. It will be neceflary alfo to know what Inftruttions the Minifter from Hanover has receiv'd, or is to receive upon this Subjeft. Vienna^ March 23. Advice has been receiv'd from Ba-varia, that Count Kevenhuller had order'd all his Troops to quit their Quarters and move towards Schardingen, where the Army is to rendezvous) fo that we expect loon to hear that this General has begun the Operations of the Campain.
