GravefenJ, Auguji 18. Pafs'd by the Poftillion, Lev�r, from Damzick. LONDON. ExtraS of a private Letter from Amjlerdam, Auguji 20, N.S. * After the Minifters of Pruffia and the'Ele&or Palatine, � had declared that they would aflift at no future Conferen-4 ccs, until the Grievances complained of in their Memo-4 rials fLould be redreffed, and proteiled againil every  Thing that might be refolved upon in thofe Conferences ; 4 eh? Miniller of Meniz, feconded by the Hanoverian 4 Minifter, and the Miniiter of Triers too, as we are afltt-4 red, piopofcd to open the Conferences for the Election of 4 a King of the Romans, Emperor ; but the Minifters of 4 Cologne, Saxony and Bavaria, having alledged that they 4 had no lnftrudtions the Propofal was dropt, nor can any 4 body foiefee when thofe Conferences may be opened. * The Grievances contained in the Memorials of the 4 Pruffianand Palatine Minifters, roul chiefly on the refto-4 ring the Activity of the Vote of Bohemia, the Freedom 4 of the Eleftors, and the Oath they agree to take.   The  King of Pruffia and the Elector Palatine demand, that  thefe three Points be fettled by the Electoral College, be-4 fore they proceed to the Election, inafmuch as. two of 4 them are actually violated? tho' they are the moft effen-4 tial Part of the Golden Bull, which is the Foundation of 4 the German Conllitution and Liberties. 4 They wii.e from Drelden, that Count Bunau,whom the 4 King of Poland has appointed his iecond Embaffudur to ' the Dyet of Elcclion, was geit'ng ready his Equipages, 4 tut that in all appearand; it Would be three of four 4 Weeks yet before he lets our. * The King of Pruflia's Defign in aflembling fo many 4 Troops in brandenboutg, Hill appears a Myft-iy to us.  Few People can yet be perfuaded, that he intends to fail 4 upon Saxony. Some Politicians rather incline to think 4 that all thofe Troops will march towards the Rhine, upon 4 Pretence of fecuring the Freedom of the Imperial E-4 lection againft the Grand Dtk;'s Army. ExtraQ of a Letter from Hanover, Auguji 17, -N.S. 4 A Courier is juit arrived from Drefdeo, difpatched by 4 the King's Miniller there, with Advice, that the King 4 of Poland having been informed of all the falfe Reports 4 fpread by the Enemies of the Empire and the Common 4 Caufe, concerning the Difpofnions he is in with Rtfpect 4 to the approaching Election of an Emperor, his Polifh 4 Majefty fent for the faid Miniller, and declared to him, 44 That tho' he was fully perfuadtd all thofe Artifices *' were not capable of making the leaft Impreffion on his " Britannick Majefty, or creating any Sufpicions in him, 44 he was neverthelefs very glad to take this Opportunity to " renew his moil fokron and ltrong Affurances, that he /' never'would deviate in the lcaft from ail that had been 44 agreed upon and llipulated ; and that his Majefty had al-44 ready delivered to his Embaffudors, appointed for the " Dyet of Election, proper Orders and Inftructibns to be-*' have, agreeable to the pubhek Declarations formerly " made by him. 1 4 The Court has been ahogether as well pleafcd with 4 the laft Letters from Francfort, as with the above-4 mentioned Difpatches from Drefden ; thofe Letters im-"* porting, among other Things, that the Elector of Mentz 4 would cartainly be at Francfort the 23d of this Month ; ' that a bet:er Harmony was never Known among the 4 Electoral EmbaiTadors who have unanimoufly refolved to ' give the BranJenbourg and Palatine Minifters juft Satis-' faition on the Subject of their lalt Memorial, andt like 4 true Patriots, to jay afukr all private and ftlf-intereiled Vie-As, in order to let the Empire fpeedily have a Head 4 worthy of that high Dignity.
