Letters "from Stockholm of the 26th of March, N-.S. fay, that the French and Dani(h Embaflidors begin to counterplot one anotberopenly : The former works in favour of the Duke de Deux-Ponts, and has offered Sweden, in general Terms, Supplies of Money and Ships, in Cafe that Prince is tle&ed. On the other Side, the Danifh Minilter offers riz Men of War, and 12000 Land Forces, upon Condition that the Prince Royal of Denmark be chofen. The Duke of Holftein-Eutin's Minlfter has had a Conference with the Committee of Election, and produced private Letters, importing, that the Emprefs of Ruflia may poffibly .give up Finland, and even Wybourg along with it, if the, Swedes will deft the Duke his Mailer. . Letter from Stockholm, March 29, N.S. In a Conference held a few Days ago about the Suc- * ceffidtf,* on* of the Members of theDyet propofed the * pujtjfflgupa fourth Candidate, that might be acceptable � to the three Parties, and thereby reftore a good Harmony � between the four Orders of the Kingdom; but this Pro-� pbfal was totally rejected. . * The a6th at Night, the Court received two Couriers � from our Minifters at the Cpngrefs of Abo, who write � Wosd, as we zxt afflured,.thatthe Emprefs of Ruffia has � hot only, relinquiihed the Ujipofftdetis, but alfo pofitivcly * promifed to grant the Swedes as favourable Coalitions as � they can wifh for, provided the Election of aSucccffor � were poftponed for fome' Time. * The next Day the Committee of Erection made the * following Report to the Dyet:" That having-confultcd �< with' the Senate about the leveral Candidates that put up �* forthe Crown, and examined the Conditions they have " oftcred,^they "might have been able to decide this Af- fair, and.even to have fet a Day for the Election,' had " not fome Difpatches arrived from the King's Plenipoten-�� tiaries at the Congrefs of Abo, which require the Atten-� tion of the Senate and the Committee, efpecially as �' they relate to the Succeffion, &c." Whereupon the � Dyetrefolved to deliberate as foon as poffible on the grand � QurfKon, Whether they Jbould proceed to fa Affair of � the, Succeffion, or poftpone it a little longer. \ - ' �* in the mean time the Prince Royal of Denmark's Party, � and that of the Duke of Deux-Pbnts ufe their utmoft * Effbrts to bringtm the Electron forthwith, while the * Holftein Party leave no Stone unturned to delay it. A \ fourth Party has darted up, which draws the Eyes of � the PuWick upon it, and that is Prince Frederick of * Hefle-Caffel'si Laft Friday Colonel Wrede declared to the Committee � of Election, that if the Prince Royal of Denmark was chofen, Finland would entirely fall off from Sweden: He was at the Head of the Deputies of that Province, � but his Declaration had no Effect. This Colonel, fe-� condiid. by the faid Deputies, afterwards propofed to re- * je6t entirely the Project for reviving the Union of Cal- * mar, and formally exclude the Prince of Denmark ; but � this Propofal was-alfo rejected. � This Day the Queftibn was debated, Whether the EJec-� tionJhould be delayed or not ? But the Poft is going out, � and the Dyet have not yet come to any Refolution on f this Head. * Upon Advice that a Detachment of-Ruffian Troops � have taken Pofleffion of the Ifland of Aland, the Court ' has ordered fome Troops to embark forthwith, and en- * deavour to drive them out.'

N.S. in the Principality of Naflau-Uflingen, which is but jo Leagues from that City, and that they expect the Bri-tifh and Hanoverian Troops will take the fame Route. They add, that the Emperor is preparing to fet out for AugfbouTg, that he may be at Hand to direct the Operations of the Campaign; arid that if Things go well for him, he will proceed to Munich. According to Letters from Triers the French Army af-fembliHg in the Neighbourhood of Sarje-Louis, is already encreafed to 40,000 Men, and will pafs the Sarre forth-with; and then advance towards the Rhine, in order to pafs it at Spires. -Letters from Cologn advife, that the Earl of Stair and the Duke d'Aremberg do not march with So much Diligence as they intended, on Account of the bad Roads, oc-cafioncd by the h�avy Rains they have lately had in thofe Parts.
