January 1, %w publifoed, With'His MAJESTY's Royal Licence, (Price 5 s. in Boatds) Fisrt -Volume, in Octavo, The UNIVERSAL HISTORY* From the earlieft Account of Time. Compiled from Original Authors. The Work to be illustrated with Maps; Cut�, Notes, Sec. with a General Index to the Whole. A Volume nvill be publiftPd regularly every Month till the while Twenry VolumesJbail be compleatid'. *�* Lift'of the Siibfcribsrs Jhal^be printed  b the thft Volume. For the fake of thofe nubs have not ftcn the Folio Edition, it is thought proper to fubjoin the following brief Account. THE Propofak for the Firfl Edition of this GreatWork lake Notice, That it had been juftly complained of, that tho' the World abounded with Books, which paffed for General Hftories, a Genera! Hiftory was a Thing itill wanting ; For either they did not defcend low enough, which is the Defect of Sir Walter Ral igh's ; or if they c^d, they leldom \yent further than the European Nation.1, which is the Fault of Dr. HoivelP?, the mod Genfcral Hiltory extant in Englijh : Not to mention* other Imperfections in them, cccafioned by the Want of Diicoveries'ahd Improvements which have'been made in Hiltory, Chronology, arid-Geography, fince their Time : And this Comp!.< thaving of late increafed, efpecially fince the Eftablifhment of Prol'ef-ibrfhips for Modern Hiftory in the Univerfities, which has brought this Study more in Elleem, a Society of Gentlemen undertook effectually to remove the Cauie,- by pub-Jilhing an Hiftory of all Nations whatever, both Ancient and Modern. . Thefe were the Authors Motives for engaging in this Work ) and we fhall now briefly mention what has been done in the Execution of iti In the fir It place, it has been their Care to give" the Hiftory of every Nation apart, by which means theleffer Monarchies and State; r.ie .'reed [rein the Hiirorical Bondage ef the greater, in which they are generally involved by .Authors, who treat them with a: much Tyranny as their Conquerors, never mentioning them but occaikmally ; fo that they mufl neceffarily want a corrtinuedj uniform, and perfect Hiftory of their Affairs, which; by this means, they have received. Etch particular Hiftory begirts from the frrft Notice to be found of the People, and is carried dewnthrough the fe-veral Revolutions ami Changes in their Government and Religion, to their Difibiution, or fame other remarkable Period, at which i: L thought proper to break off for the prefent, in order :o refume it in the Modern Part. All their Migrations and ConqueiL :re related, uith an exact Account of the Succeflions and Reigns of their refpectivc Smperors, Kings, Princes and other Rule:3 : Whatever they have rendered themfelves famous tor, whether Arms, Learning, Inventions or Trade, are t^ken Notice of, and in fhort, nothing omitted which may be ufeful or in-ftrutYi ve. It h to ht obferved, that this Work i: no Transition from the Frtncb ; r.o Collection fro.n Collections ; but the Whole is extracted from the O.iginal Authors which are constantly quoted. In the Ancient Hiftorv, the Foundt-rion is, the Ancients themfelves ; and tlie Moderns are made .ufe of only as Comment; upon them. And as the Compilers of this Work hruve not trufied to what others have done before them, neither have they confided in one Nation for the Hiftory of another ; but have conltantly had Recourfe to their own Hilt"-rian , as h?ft qualified to give an Account of their own ArTYi;. Fur this Reafon, the greatelt Part of wha| relates to Oriental i lilt Dry, fo little known at prefent in Europe, has b"en ex.ract J, 3S far as it Gould be done with any tolerable Degree of Certainty, from the belt Oriental Author, cf which onr Libraries afford Plenty, though hitherto b it ilttle med ; for it feems altogether as unreaibnabie to -,,ke the Hillary of the Per-fans, Arabians, 1iirl t. Baker ; St. George, Capt. Robinfon ; and Ealtcourt, Capt.Wilfon, for Eafi Jniia.-Came down juft as the Port was going away the Sr. Lewis, Shuter, for Gibraltar j Bolton Gaily, Clark, for Bofton ; Jane, Crome; and Anne, Bifhop, for Weymouth -r Salilbury, Marilvam, fpr'Southampton j the Two Brothers, Stiles, f->r Portfmouth ; -, Parfonsj for Exon ; and William and Thomas; Lander, for Pool. Wind S.W.byW. LONDON. Tho' (he Marquis de Spinola has been obliged to retire out of the Auftrian Dominions, the Care of his tfFects and private Interefts are left to the Marquis de MaL-fpina, a Genoefe by Birth, but not in Principle, who came to Vienna upon his own Affairs. This Nobleman is forbid, however, to intermeddle with Matters between the Imperial Court and the Rcpublick. According to feveral Letters from Peterfboargh, the Emprefs had refolved to make a Tour to Mofcow foon after Twelfth Day,' in order te be prefent in Perfon at an Extraordinary A/Tembly of the Clergy ; and the Sledges were ordered to be got ready for the Conveyance of her, and her Petinue. We are affured, that tie Czarrina, upon the Application of M. D'Allion, has agreed to fend a Miniiter to the Con-ferentes at Bred3, with a kjnd of Mediatorial Character, in cafe any Thing of Corrfecfuence towards a general Pe*ce comes to be there deliberated upon. Count Gyllembourgh, lately deceased at Stockholm, was formerly the Swedifh Miniftsr in England^ when the Can-fpiracy formed againft Scotland under Charles XII. was detected. Both Gyllembourgh ^nd Gortz, who refided at the fa trie Time in Holland, were imprifoned on this Occa-fion, and a great Number of Papers were printed by Authority at London, to fatFfy the Public. King Charles, when he found his Defign was known, neither avowed nor denied i', but neither he nor Cardinal Alberoni, who was embarked in the fame Scheme, attempted to profecute it any farther. Gyllembourgh hath fince thh been fnore than once at the Head of the Swedifht Miniftry, in which Capacity he fpent thelalt feven Years of bis Life. He was always fuf-pected as too much in the French Intereft, tho' other~wife acknowledged as a Man of great Abilities. From the London Gazette. Stockholm, Dec. 23, O.S. On ThurTday laft, being the Ernprefs of Ruflia's Birth Day, his Excellency Baron KorfF, the Ruffian Ambaffador, gave a fplendid Dinner on that Occafion, at which were prelent ra )it of the Senators, feveral of the great Officers of the Crown, anct all the Foreign Minifters. Copenhagen, Jan. 3, N.S. Yefterday the Kirtg of Denmark appeared in the Circle, and dined in Publick, as ufual, for,the firfl Time fince Li* In^ifpofiti; n ,- which indeed wai flibrt, butfo violent while it laftsd, a: to occafion a general Alarm and LTneafinefs.

Ext rail of a private  Letter ' fnm the' Ha^ne,  daiid*' Jan. 20, a.6. , .. ' Preparations for opening the Campaign are puffing ph! hefe with the greatelt Refolution ; in fhort, we^ rio"vv feem in earneft ; and our Commander in. Chief,, the Duke; of Cumberland, is determined n;t to let the, French get the Stare of him in the enfuing Campaign j for which Purpofe Exprefiea to hatlfen Things are almrft cominaally coming frbm.and going to London ; and we, are ifTured, his Royal Higtinefr is no lefs induftiious id forwarding Things in England. The French, I cari affure you, by the belt At3vices we can procure, are not idle on their Part, for they have hot only got all Things for taking the Field as\ foon as the Seafon permits, but have made M. Saxe General of Trance, which looks as if the French King had no Thoughts of heading his Army the next Campaign, and is the Higheft Title a Soldier can poffibly arrive to in that Kingdom , he has krrge Prom'ifes of Rewards in Cafe Of Succeft the next Campaign ; und, to encourage him to begin it early, Affu-rances have been given h;m of enjoying all the Privileges and Advantages which were granted to Marftal Turin!. Notwithstanding alf which, we are well affured, thai before M. Bttyhsax left Breda, he wrote a molt afr fectionate Letter to the States, and another to Count Waffenaer, wherein he acquainted them with the Orders he Jiid received to return immediately to Paris on Ac-co|jnt of M. D'Argenion's Refignation ; and, at the fatpe Time to give them the ftrongeft Affurances, that the King his Mailer had not the lealt .Thought of breaking off the Conferences ; on the contrary, that he had prevailed on the King of Spain to fend a Miniiter to thofe Conferences, who would foon be at Breda j that he hirftfelf, or, in cafe he was appointed Secretary of State', another in his Room, would not fail of being there in a Fortnight at farthelt; and that he had the gre3teft Rear fon. .to believe,, that all Things would in the End be id-jufted and fettled, to the entire Satisfaction and mutual Advantage of all Parties.' The heavy Artillery found at Savona has been puf"orJ board the Engliih Squadron, in order to be carried to General, Brown in Provence. Yefterday Simon Lord Lovat was brought-under a ftrong Guard from the Tower to the Bar of trie Hcufe cfr Peers, where he kneel'd until the Lord Chancellor acquainted him he might rife. Then his Lordftiip put in his Anfivcr to the Articles of Impeachment exhibited againft him by the Houfe of Commons, which were read at the Table. His Lordihip beingafk'd if he had any thing 'to offer, he fignihed he had two Petitions to offer, which were delivered and. read ; the nrft, which related to his itrong Box, was rejected ; and the other admitted. HTs Royal Highhefs the Duke of Cumberland was prefent in the Houfe of Peers. Yefterday a.Reprieve was brought to the New Goal in Southwark, from his Grace the Duke of Newcaftlc's Office,- for the following Perfons, to the 10th of March, viz. John Saunderfon,        Chriftopher Taylor, Janres Batteraugh,      James Wilding, Charles Deacon,        Alexander M'Urouther, Thomas Furnivall.      A'exander Abernethey ; who James Gadd,        -        is fince'dead. By the laft.Meffenger from Edinburgh we hear that ail is quiet in the Highlands; and that the Report of the landingof any Frtnch is int'irely falfe. Saturday Evening laft died, in an advanced Age, at his Houfe at Barnes in Surry, Mr. Jacob Mendez, formerly an eminent Merchant! of this City ; and on Monday laif! in the Afternoon his Corpfe was carried in great Funeral Pomp from his" Houfe aforefaid, to the Jews Burying^-Ground at Mile-End, aad there interr'd. He died poi'-fefs'dofa very large Eftute, which will be divided a-mongft his Relations. Lalt Night we heard that Alderman Winterbottom was much better thta he has* been lor fame Days part.
