ExtraS of a Letter from Naples, April'24, N.S. -�� Conferences never were fo frequent at Court as of late, � being chiefly occasioned by the Difpatche* received from � Spain, relating to the State of that Court's Affairs in * Italy". The Queen of Spain fpared no Pains to prevail � with his M^jefty to take Part in the War ; but the ill ' 'Succefiof theSpanim Arms, and the little Probability of �-their having better Luck the approaching Campaign, � have fixed the King in his Refolution to adhere inviola- * bly to the Neutrality concluded with the Crown of Great-� Britain. All the Difpofitions making here at preterit are < confined to the finifliing the Forts along the Sea-Side and < ^planting Cannon on them, efpecially at Cartello a Mare, * Saterno, and in this Harbour. As to the Levies of Mi- * litia, which were ordered to be made in fuch Haile, we * now go on very flow with them ; nay, many t)f thofe * already raifed have the Leave to return Home, with Or-' ders, however, to keep themfelves in Readinefc if called ' upon. The regular Troops are ftill in the fame Pofts, � and, 'tis believed, will continue there. Several Veffels ' that arrived here on Friday and Saturday laft, report, � that they fell in with fome Englifli Men of War that ' cruize in thofe Seas, but were not vifited by them.'

Eye to their Motions. They alio tell us, that Marflial Noailles will certainly begin Hostilities agsrinft the Allies, the Moment they fet their Foot in the Emperor's hereditary Countries. Marfhal Broglio, who is recovered from Jus late Indifpofirion, is not to open the Campaign 'till the Beginning of June. By the French Mail we have received Advice, that there are eight Privateers now at Sea from Malaga ; and that they have taken two Englifli Veflels, whole Names are not mention'd.
