ExtraS of a Letter from Dantzick, May 4, N.S. * A great many Englifh and Dutch Merchantmen are arrived here within thefe few Days, who all Report that they met with no French Privateers in their Paflage : The French Conful here has received Advice, that a Ship is filled from Rcuen, laden with Wine?, and other Pioducls of FraTJce, v\hich King Staniflaus ferds as Prefnts to his Friends in Pohi.d : We hear from War-faw, that it is obferved that feveral Grandees of the Jvngdom have left that City, in order to confer with Cardinal Lipfky, Bifhop of Cracow, and a near Relation to King Stanifhus, about the prelent Situation of Affairs ; and that it is reported the Bufinefs in hand is to pave the Way to the Throne for that Prince ; but they don't yet heir that the Piimnte of the Kingdom has h;.d any Interview with C-rdirul Liffky, fince the King's Departure for Drei'dcn. As hi^ iVjajefty is in very good Terms with the Court of Vienna, and letms heartily dif-pofed to do her Hungarian Mijtfty ilill the greater St rvi-ces, the Report of caballing . nd intriguing in favour of King Staniflaus eafily giins Credit. Many Pulilh Gentlemen are fet out f.om Warfivv, with th; King's Per-miffion, in. order to mike the Campaign in Quality, of Volunteers under Prince Ch.rles cf Lorrain We begin to tdk again of the approaching Match of a Body of Ruffian 1 ro ps ; uhich Report takes its Rife from the King of PruflU's declining to make ufe of the Emprefs of Ruflia's Mediation, beca; fr, as he alledge.% Affairs are altered fince l-e tequelled that Mediation. Molt People look upon this as an Affront to the Ruffian Court, and are of Opinion, that it will berefemcd ac cording ly ; but other?, who are nor fo forward to be thought fturp-fighted Politicians, con'efs that they know not what to think of the Matter. However it be, it is certain, that fcarce any Body will give Credit to the Report of the approaching March of the Ruffian Troops, becaufe the World has been fo often impofed upon in this Article. Some Letters from Drefden fay, that the Troops of the Electorate of Saxony are to be augmented to go,coo Men, by Means of an Augmentation of Subftdy, or otherwife ; which they look upon as a fureSign that the Reports lately fpread, that an Accommodation was on the Point of being concluded between the Courts of \ ienna and Berlin, have no Manner of Foundation. And yet fome Advices from Berlin own, that the King of Pruffia has felt the Pulfe of the Courts of Vienna and London, and aflually made Overtures for a Peace. Extrafl of a Letter from Guernfey.
