Extras tfk Letter from Stockholm, Aug. 2, N.S. � The Senate had a 'Meeting Extraordinary two Days ' fince, to deliberate on the propereft Methods to make -� Trade floarifh, which was for a long Time upon theDe- * dine by ill judged Regulations, and at lad totally ruined � by the long Wars of Charles the 12th. The Expedient ' heft relifeed, but at the fame Time moil oppdfed, was to grint the Roman Catholicks and Caividifts, who are both � equally hated in Sweden, the free and pjblick Exercife ' of their Religion. This Propofal having been made in the Dyet, the Affembly were divided in their-Sentiments: �'The Burghers, as being the beft Judges of the Trading * Iritereft, readily agreed to the Toleration, in which they * were feconded by the Nobleffe; but the Clergy ftrenu-' oufly oppofed it, and had Credit enough to b iag the � Peafants into their Way of Thinking : Neverthelefs, we � hope, that thefe two Orders will agree to this Project, %s foon as they are perfwaded that it will be beneficial to < the State.' They write from Turin, that the Piedmonteze Cavalry ire aftually polled in the Gorges of the Mountains 5 that the Spaniards feem rather to be contriving how to maintain their Footing in Savoy, than to penetrate into Piedmont $ that they are fortifying themfelves at Montmeliin, have fent back their Baggage to Grenoble, are eftablifljing their Magazines in the Neighbourhood of Ambrun, and have detached ten Companies of Grenadiers with a Body of Mi-quelets towards Brian con. From Genoa they give ns the following Lift of the Artillery and Warlike Stores, belonging to the Spaniards, which Admiral Matthews made the Genoefe confent to have carried to the Caftle of St. Boniface in the Ifland of Corfica: 1500 Barrels of Gunpowder, each weighing 100 lb. 7 large Mortars; 24 Pieces of Cannon with their Carriages, each carrying 24 Pound Balls; 24,000 Cannon Balls'bTthe fame Dimenfions, and a prodigious Ojantity of Muflcet Bullets. Letters from Cbnftattfaople, by the Way of Viem�, fay, that the French Minifler has loft all his Credit in the Di-ran, by boafling perpetually of the Suc'cefs of his Mafier's J Arms, and the floariihiog CowHrion and Strength of the kingdom of France j as to the Succefs of the French'King's Arms, the Auftrian Minifter fully convinced the Grand Vizir, that the French Embaflador had fhamefully irrrpofed upon him, and as he had the good Luck to be feconded on this Head by the Minifters of other Chriftian Powers at the Porte, whatever the French Minifter now fays goes for bo.. thing. We hear from Mittau, that the Emprefs of Ruffia and the King of Poland have invited the Noblefle of Courland to repair to that City, in order to proceed forthwith to the Election of a new Duke, and that the Plenipotentiaries of thofe two Potentates are already arrived there for that Pur-pofe. They write from Grenoble, that 30 French Batallions are actually affembled at Fort Barraux, and will fpeedily re-fume their March for Savoy. From Spire we learn, that Marfhal Noailles, with the Princes of the Blood, is going to vifit all 'the Fortreffes in Alface, upon Advice that the Army of theAllies have either pafied the Rhine, or were actually paffing it. They work Night and 'Day "upon the Fortifications of Landau, and the Lines and Intrenchments in that Neighbourhood; and this becaufe a Report has prevailed that Prince Charles of Lorrain intends to lay Siege to that Town as foon as he'gets over the Rhine.
