Daily Courant (Newspaper) - June 6, 1730, London, Middlesex The Daily Courant.^ NQ 8942. Saturday, June 6y 1730. Tefierday arrivd the Mail due from Holland. Granada, May 19. N. S. THE Exprefs laft arrived from Paris, is fent back thither, with Orders to infill upon the Succours fttpu-lated for introducing the 6000 Spaniards into Italy. Every thing is ready on our fide; and w-e may venture to fay, nothing is wanting either towards furnifhing the Troops with all manner of KecefTaries, or to facilitate their Embarkation and Landing. The Minifters of the Allies continue tbeir Conferences with thofe of Spain. We hear the Court will not remove to Barcelona till the latter End of July, becaufe the Troops cannot go on board till Auguft. Mean time, their Catholick Majefties will fhortly go to Conftantina and Caralla, in the Monn. tains called Sierra Morena, to take the Diver-fion of Hunting. Madrid, May 23. N. S. We have fent away a great Number of Waggons loaded with all forts of Provision, for the Court at Grenada. Don Diego aV Morales y Ve-lafco is made Secretary of the Chamber of Caftile for the Kingdoms depending on the Crown of Arragon; and his Office of Secretary of the Orders is given to Don Jofepb-Anthony de Yfafi. Father Jofeph Barnuevo, formerly General of the Congrega-tion of St. Benedict, in Spain and England, is nominated to the Bifhoprick of Ofma. They write from Cadiz, that Don Laurence Ar-mengual, Bifhop of that See, and Counfellor of State, died there the 15 th Inftanr. They add, that the Capitana, the Almirante, and 7 or 8 Galleons were failed out of that Har-bour, and had caft Anchor in the Bay ; that they were fhortly to be follow'd by the reft of the Galleons, in order to proceed to the Weft Indies; and that the Men of War now equipping there are to fail for Barcelona as faft as they can be got ready. Vienna, My 31. N. S. The Earl of Wal-degrave, Ambaflador of the King of Great Britain, received an Exprefs from London the Night before laft : Yefterday he went for Luxemburg; but meeting the Emperor at Peterfdorf, he communicated his Difpatches to him, and had a Conference with his Imperial Majefty, which lafted Three Quarters of an Hour. The Emperor returning to Laxembmg, that Minifter had another Audience of him there 5 after which the High Chancellor of the Court held a Conference with the other Imperial Minifters, which lafted till Six o' Closk in the Evening. The Courier was fent back this Day with an Anfwer to his Difpatches; but what they were, we cannot poflibly learn, nor what Refolution is taken upon them : 'Tis only faid they were about fome new Pro-pofals on the Part of the Allies of Seville; and that in a little while another Exprefs will Bring from Paris the laft Refolution of the faid Allies. The Generals that are to command in Italy; have not received Orders to let out; but we do not doubt they will receive them very foon, unlefs an Expedient can be hie upon with better Succefs for giving Satisfaction to the Emperor and Spain, who a*e the contending Parties. The new Levies are carrying on in all the Emperor's Hereditary Countries, to fupply the Place of the Forces that are drawn from Hungary. Men talk of laying a Capitation Tax upon all the Subjects of his Imperial Majefty, at the Rate of fo much per Cent, of what they are worth. 'Tis computed that this Tax will raile 3 Million;., without burdening the Country-People with it. They write from Conftan-tinople, that notwithstanding all the fair Speeches of the Grand Vizier, 'tis certain that the Turks are making great Preparations for War. From the Camp at Mublberg, June 3. N. S. The Marquis de Monti, Ambaflador of France, who fet out from Drcfden fome Days ago, is come hither, to take bis Leave of the King, his Excellency having received Orders to make a Tour to France, before he goes to Poland to aflift at the General Dyet of that Kingdom. As the Army is ail new cloatbed, his Majefty was very defirous the Marquis fhould fee it before he went; and that Minifter was charm'd with the Sight. The Truth is, nothing exceeds the Magnificence of the Life Guards, che Chevalier Guards, the Tall Musketeers, the Carabineers, the Foot-Guards, and the Cui-raffiers. The Situation of the Camp is extremely delightful: The King's ftately Pa-villion, and the magnificent Tents with which it is furrounded, are upon an Eminence, whence they have a. Profpe r, the Head* .of the Knights of the White Eagle, tnd atfeompany'd by 160 Princes, Generals, Minifters, and other Lords. The two Kings met half a League from the Camp, where they embraced with Tokens of the fincereft Friendfhip; and after they bad breakfafted under a magnificent Tent, they came to the Camp, Their Majefties were followed by 9 Gentlemen, armed Cap-a-pee, bearing Colours and a Horfe Tail, as alfo by a Troop of Huffars armed with Bows and Arrows. Two Days ago, t'be Army took the Field, and ranged themfelves in two Lines, each of which ex-tends 3 Quarters of a'League. Their Majefties and the Princes marched tbro' them on both fides. The King of Pruffia was attended by 4 young Turks, cloatbed in Gold Brocades. Prince William of Wirtemberg fets out this Day for Vienna, whence he will afterwards proceed to Italy with the Prince of Hohen Zollern, who lately arrived at the Imperial Court from that of Berlin.' Drefdtn,.^une 6. HiS. The King ^having told the Marquis de Monti, Ambaflador of France, that be would do him a Pleafure if he would fee the Camp before he fet out for Paris, that Minifter went thither in Com-plaifance to his Majefty, hut did not ftay there above two Days, before he proceeded for the Court of France. 1 The King has pubjilhed an Order,: forbidding all fuch Perfpns as have Places under the Goyerntrienc to go to the Camp ; which has not only prevented great Numbers from repairing thither, but fent home thofe that were already there, for fear of lofing their Places. An Order is likewife fent to all the ViHages in this Ele&o-rare, to keep a good Guard Day and Might. No Provisions fent to the Camp pay any Duty. Hamburgh, June 9. N. S. The Count de Degenfeld. who has been nominated by the King of PruiTia to go to the Court of England, is ordered to. flop at Frankfort, and wait for his laft Inftructions. Amjlerdam, June 13. N. S. It appears by Letters Irom Paris, thac they ftill flatter themfelves there, that an Expedient will be found for preventing a War in Iraly. The Couriers fent to Spam and Vienna the begin-' ning or May laft, are however returned to Paris, without bringing any favourable Anfwer, tbeir Catholick Majefties infilling (as we are affured) that the Succours ftipulated for the Introduction of the Spanifh Troops into Italy be fent away without farther Delay ; and the Emperor perfifting, on the other hand, in his Refolution not to hearken to any Accommodation but what is conformable to the Treaty of the Quadruple AHh ance; wherein it is agreed, that there fhould be 6000 Neutral Troops, and not Spaniards, introduced into the Places of Tufcany, to fecure thaSucceifian to Don Carlos. Some Advices fay, the Courier fent bymCount Kinski from Paris to BrufTels, where he ar-i rived in 23 Hours, was to inform the Court of Vienna, that that of Spain has rejected all the Propofals of Accommodation, which are not grounded upon the Introduction of the 6000 Spaniards into Italy. Mean while, we (hall know nothing for certain in relation to Peace or War, till the Return of the Ex-prefTes fent to Grenada and Vienna the Jat-t"ef"End ot. May ; fo chat all the different Reports that are fpread upon that Subject, are only Guefs-work. Liverpool, June 2. Laft Night arrived the Roberr, Lecbenland, in 6 Weeks from Bar-badoes.
