' The Preparations for the Marriage of the Grand Duke ' and Duichefs are carried on with all pofljble Expedition. ' The Feilivals and Entertainments to be given on this Oc-' cafion, will laft a Fortnight, and coft vail Sums, and will * exceed any thing of the Kind ever feen in Europe, in ' Point of Magnificence and Elegance.

ExtraS of a Letter from Amfterdam, Sept. 3, N.S. * We hear by Letters from Copenhagen, that an Ac- * commodation is on the Tapis baweoen that Court aud * the Prince of Holftein-Gottorp, in regard to the Dutchy � of Schlefwick : That the Reform in the Cavalry, which * was lately talked of, has already taken Place, and that * they^are actually making a Reduction in the Infantry. * Jt is faid his Danifh Majefty will employ this Saving in ' augmenting his Marine. * The laft Advices from Stockholm fay, the Marquis de * Laumarie, the French Embiflador, has received Orders * from his Court, to drop entirely the Affair of Cz, ain ' Dagenaer, whofe Conduct France difapproves. * War is actually begun between the Kings of Poland * and Pruflia. The Prufljan Troops have already entered * Saxony, and palled by Halle, fo that they were but two * Leagues from Leipfick. The next Letters will no doubt ' bring us an Account how much farther the Pruflians have * proceeded. It is eafy to perceive that the King of Pruf-' fia's main Defign in taking up Arms againft SaxoHy, is * to force the King of Poland to forfake the Queen of * Hungary's Caufe, and, in particular, to hinder him from � giving his Vote for the Grand Duke of Tufcany.
