Daily Courant (Newspaper) - June 17, 1730, London, Middlesex Wednefday^ June 17, 1730. fyme, June 3. N. S.

In the Scrutiny on Monday, Cardinal Davia had 19 Votes; but we are told, the Canvafs in his Eminer.cy's Favour took a contrary Turn that Day, by fome fecret Intrigues, and cut off all Expectation of his mounting the Throne.

Letters from Benevento are full of the rigorous Proceedings of Signor Bondelmonte, the Apoftolick Commifiary, againft the Creatures of rhe Cofcia Family and others, who bad any Share in the Adminiftration during the Pontificate of Benedict XIII. That Prelate having order'd Canon Pelegrini, Librarian and Keeper of the Records of the Diocefe of Benevento, to deliver him fome Papers that he wanted to infpect, the Canon peremptorily Tefufed him, and told him he bad no Right to demand any fuch Papers. Signor Bondelmonte thereupon prepared to oblige him to it; but the Canon protefted againft his Proceedings, and fled. At the fame time, the Arcbprieft of Leuza convey'd to Signor Bondelmonte an Inftrument, thre*tning to excommunicate him in the Name of Signor Targa, Cardinal Cofcia's Brother, if he did not give over fuch violent Courfes. Hereupon the ConimifTary clapt the Archprieft up in Prifon, and difpatch'd an Exprefs to acquaint the Sacred College with what he had done ; in Anfwer to which, the Cardinals Heads of Orders have not only approved Signor BondelmOnte's Conduct, but have directed him to profecute the Arcbprieft with the utttjoft Severity.
