WindN.W. by W. if* Exira3 of 1* Lttttr frtm a Gentleman belonging to tbt ' Cemtsn *f Bern, who it ejl.xblijhfd in a foreign Ctnntiy, dated yfxgnjf 28. * People ought riot to be furprized if the publick Newt * Paper* do not inform us till very late and imperfectly of * the Exploits of the Inquilition of Bern.  The Regency * publishesnothing about it, and the Inhabitants knowing * that their Letters are opened the Moment they ar� put > into the Poft-Office, dai* not iotinsate � their Relations '* or Friends what paffes before their Eyes.   Bat what Con* * etofidtt is to be drawn from this Policy} If the Confpi- * ratorsare as. culpable as it's pretended they are,, and the * Zeal oJLthe Burghers for the prcfent Government was as � great av it's faid to -be, why is there not a particular * .Detail of their black and infamous Machinations pub- * * lUh'd, as has been done of the Dcfigns of the Confpi-.� aator* of M*lt*P Why are not their Depoiirions printed ?  * Why tad thejrwo^Conncil permitted } Why were th ' ' j^rwentcd'from (peaking when, upon the Scaffold? Allure * yourfelf. Sir, that all this pretended Confpiracy to maf- * (acre the Magiftracy by the Hands of Peafants, is\ no- * thing but a Fiction, which wu neceflary to form, in * Order to colour the Rigour with which they were de- * termined to ad on this Oecafion.    What then was * the real Design of thefe unfortunate Men ?   Why * he, of all the honeft Citizeqs, who had no Share in * the Regency, with feveral other well-intentioned People, * being invincibly pcrfuaded, that the City of Bern is .  Sovereign in the, Canton, that the Regents are Only the * Mandatories of the City, and that as fuch they take the -  Oath of Fidelity not to their own Body, but to the City, * and consequently they ire accountable for their Conduct -' and Adminiftration to the Body of the Burghers, had In- * tcntion to affemblc, and to ctufc the 300 to appear be-*, fore their Tribunal; that is to fay, the Mandatories be- * Tore thejr Maflvrs, to give an Account how they govern'd * the City and the Country, and whether they have ailed * conformably to the fundamental Laws and Constitutions * of (heir Country; and this is the Thing that the Body * of the Burghers have fruiilefly demanded ior above fifty .Years; the Regency treating all Difcourfe, every R�pre- * fentatiofi, and even lnlinuation, which feeins (ending to ' bring about ihis End, as trcaicnable. * The Jealoufy of the Regency of Bern of being di-' veflcd of their Power, was the Occasion of the Bamlh * ment of many worthy People in the YeaT 1710, who 4 having remark'd that ihe Regency had alter'd the Great * Seal, which till that Time haul hem the fame as that of * the City, were fo bold as to make Rrmonlirances upon * this SubjeCl, and at the fame Time in filled upon the Ob- * fervation of the fundamental Laws.   From the fame * Caufe were banifli'd in the Year  744 fo many honell * Barghcrs, who, without entering into any Particular?, * only deiir'd in a very humble Petition, that the Regency ' would be pleafed to have fome Com pa (Don on the * Burghers, and would render their Situation more fup- * portable.   In fhort, ths was likewife ihe Caufe of the * late tragical Death of thole worthy Patriots, who being * acquainted with the Infignthcancy of Remonllrances, * were defirous of bringing about an A(Tcmbly of the ' Burghers, and to do it by Dint of Arms, in order to be ' in a �. ondit:on of oppofing Force by Force, in cafe the ' Regency thou Id undcitake to hinder them from executing ' their laudable Dcfigns.   The Government of this Canton * was formerly veiled in 253 Families 1 but fome artful ' People amongft them have had the Add reft to reduce tliein '� to about 40, and thry ate daily diminiihing that Number. * Very confiderable Sums are from Time to Time drawn * from the publick Treafury, in order to augment the In- * come of the Bailliages 1 that is to pay, to incrcafc the ' Appointments of die lucrative Polls which thefe Families * look upon as Part of their Patrimony.   Provided (hat * an Employment be not altogether abjecl. large Appoint-' nacnts arc annex'd to it, and it is referv'd for one of the ' too. The Management of the Money which particular ' Petfons of the Canton have in England, was heretofore ' an Advantage to a merchandizing Burgher; but for ten * Years pad this has been creeled into a iLiliiage, in order * to deprive the Burghers of it.   So that upon the whole, * according to a moderate Computation, the Body cull'd * the 100, have actually bellow d upon them (elves an In * come of the yearly Value of a Million of Livrcs Bcrnoii, * Which divided in a jail Proportion would make every * Body cafy. The Employments which by their MeanncJs ' are not fougUt after by the People in Power, amount to ' no more than joooo Livrcs per Annum.   The Advan * ttges of Commerce and Manufactures the People aie*'de * priv'd of by the uncommon Policy of the Regency, and * they cannot now, as heretofore, make their Fortune by ' Arms, for they are forbidden by a Law of a new Da , luu received rjrii�ri to pdt to Sea witk* out delay, but with ��k�e View is jtotJino*n. Parit, Srft.4. Two new lien of War of fer��ry Guns each have been lately launched at Toulon.  Frtm tbt Pari* , Gaaett*. Mofiow, A*g*fi ** Wo learn from Conftantinople of the 9th ult. that the Grind Viair having invited the Ruffian Rcfident to a Conference; had declar'd to him, that the Port was defirous of conferving Peace with its Neighbours, principally with Ruflia 1 and that the Grand Stgnlor faw wjtkib^OJJjc�rn.^�at-the~^�od^ ter'd by the Military Preparations of the Rufuans oa the Frontiers of Sweden, a Power in Alliance with his Highnefs, and for whom he particularly tnterefled himfclf. The Rciident of Ruflia made Anfwer, that the Czarina feeing her Neighbours arm, had done the fame on her Part, but that her Sentiments were moll pacifick. Where-up6n the Grand Vizir obferv'd to him, that as there were Treaties fubfifting between the Porte and Sweden, it were proper Ruffia mould think fcrioufly of withdrawing her Troops. LONDON.
