The Affair, of the Succeffion will not be brought upon ' the Carpet again, untill after the Return of Baron Schef- * fer and Captain Graman, who have been fent to Abo to 4 know precifely what Progrefs has been made in the Ne- < gotiations,; and what we, are to expect from Ruffia. In ' the mean time, we continue to compleat the Forces both * by Sea and Land, and feveral Regiments, together with the greateft Part of the Sailors, are already gone on < board. Several Men of War are actually put to Sea, 4 and, if there be Occafion, the whole Fleet may follow � them in a few Days. The High Admiral Utfal com-' mands the Fleet fitted out at Carelfcroon, and Admiral ' .Gyldenkiep, commands the Gottenburgh Squadron ; � but it is not certain who is to have the Command of the � Men of War and GaUies fitted out in this Port. .

However, they fay, that thefe ftrong Affurances have not yet diffi-pated- their Alarms. As to the People of the Valalfe, they are fully perfuaded that the Spanifli General has Orders from her Catholick Majefty, to attempt a Paffage into Italy at any Rate ; and therefore they are refolved to oppofe him at all Events, fince their Liberties cannot be fafe, if the Spaniards mould prove fuccefsful. Some Letters from Florence affure us, that Baron Neu-hoff, who has been there lately incog, is embarked again for Corfica, on board a Man of War ; but they don't tell us what Nation that Ship belonged to.'
