Daily Courant (Newspaper) - October 13, 1730, London, Middlesex The Daily Courant. Tuefday, O&bber 13, 1730. Vienna, Off. 4. N. S. TH E Marquis Doria, Minifter of the Republick of Genoa at this Court, having received an Exprefs from bis Matters, bad a long Conference with the Emperor's Ministers, and feat back that Exprefs Yefterday. One of Count Kjnski's Domefticks is arrived here from Paris, tp t ran fad: (as we are told) fome particular Affairs of the faid Minifter; and when that is done, which will be in about a Fort* night or 3 Weeks, be will return to the Court of Erance. Mean time, we hear nothing when Count Koningfek, who is ftill there, may be expected home; and fome fay his Excellency will make a longer Stay there than was imagined. It is certain, that the Pope's Nuncio tries all manner of Ways to perfuade this Court to accommodate Matters with the Crown of Spain, in relation to the Settlement of Don Carlos ; and we are inform'd that the frequent Conferences he has lately bad with the Imperial Minifters, were upon that Subject. Here goes a Report, that the Spanifh Men of War, which have lain fo long at Barcelona, are failed from thence without any Land-Forces on board, or even a Tranf-* port with them ; which looks as if they were bound back to Cadiz; in which cafe, a long Adieu to the Expedition that has created fo much Talk and Hurry. Nor-witbftandiug the rigorous Prohibition of the Importation of Chintfes and Callicoes, and all other Stuffs of Foreign Manufacture, we are apprehenfive the Placaert againft them will have -lirile Effect or Sign'ificancy, efpeciaily in the Imperial and other Trading Towns, where the Sale of thofe Goods has always been current and alio w'd till ~now. The Count de Tauroca, AmbafTador and Plenipotentiary of the King of Portugal, has had a particular Conference with Prince Eugene of Savoy, upon what Subject we know not; but fome fay, it was upon the Difpatcbes he bad received by an Exprefs from:' Lisbon. 'Tis reported rbat Don Manuel, Prince of Portugal, who is at prefent in Ruffia, will return to this Court fn October or November next; but perhaps that Prince will not be here fo foon as Men imagine. According to our iaft Advices from Italy, the Great Duke of Tufcany ftill adheres to his firft Refolution, not to admit the Foreign Troops of either Party into his Dominions fo long as he can help it. As for the Court of Turin, they feem inclinable, to obferve an, exact Neutrality,' till fuch time as they fee which Way the Wind fets in the Spring. All Communication between this Court and that of Poland, is now intirely uninterrupted ; but we hope the fame will foon be open'd again, and the Differences adjuft-ed;the rather, becaufe the Field-Marfhal Count Wackerbarth is fpeedily expected here on the Part of his Polifh Majefty. The City of Hamburgh makes prefflng Inftances to his Imperial Majefty, to intercede in their behalf with the King- of Denmark, that their Trade; may be reftored upon the antient free Footi We hear no more of the Duke of Lorrain's Return to this Court; and it is likely, that he will fpend the Winter at leaft in his own Dutchy. The Imperial Minifters are at prefent taken up chiefly in regulating the Winter-Quarters of the Troops in Italy, in which Affair they meet with a , great many Difficulties. This Court has lately made frefh Remittances to Munich, to pay the Auxiliary Forces; and we hear a Treaty is in hand in Suabia, for taking fome Wirtembergers into the Emperor's Service." They write from Mofcow, that Count Wra-tiflau, the Emperor s AmbafTador there, was making Preparations to return home as foon as bis Succeffor the Count de Wallenftein fhould arrive. Augsburg, OS. 9. N. S. M. de Loben-wyn, Lieutenant of the Regiment of Foot of Koetter, arrived here the ift inftam, to raife Recruits for the Imperial Troops; and Yefterday he fent away the firft Detachment for Pfoelendorf, on their Way to Friburg. Hanover, OSt, 10.1 N. S. Major-General Sutton, Minifter of the King of Great Britain arrived here the Beginning of laft Week from Ciffel, and fet out the next Day for Branfwick, on his Way to Fecbr, the Refi-dence of the .Duke of WolfembutteL They write from Brunfwick, that M. de Dehn, Brother to the Count of that Name, was made Commander of the Guards, in the room of M. Cram, who has the Regiment by the Death of Majc*-General Woiters. The Report fptead Ihete fome Days ago, as if the Jewifh Court-Bauker had difappeared, proves to have been iivented by his Enemies. Bruffels, 08. 12. N. S. -On the 9th In-ftant, the Archduccfoefs our Governefs nominated M, Decker, Counfellor-Fifcbal in the Great Coancil of Malines, a Privy-Counfellor, and gave 2 Counfellors Places vacant in that Council, to thesAdyocates Paris and Pycke.

The Marfhal de Zumjungen and his Lady being gone to Vienna, and,haviog left Orders for felling the.Equipage' thej^md nor take with them, we* begin to doubt of that General's Return hither. The Imperial Colonel the BiZ ton de Keflel i$ likewife gone thither with the Archdutche&'s Leavie, to folicite the Poffc of Lieutenant-Colonel of the Regiment of Weftcrloo, vacant by the Death of the Rhine- grave.
