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.
