We are alfo told, that the Marquis de Lanmarie has particular Orders to bribe fome Members of the Senate of Sweden to concur with him in endeavouring to engage that Crown to renew its Alliance with France, and to back his Bribes or Prefents, with a Promife in the Name of the French King, that if they do not fucceed in this Scheme, or mould be called to Account hereafter for their Conduit, they (hall be fully indemnified for what Lofs they might fuftain in Cafe they were obliged to fly their Country.

The fecond was a Brigantine, who fay they are French ; but can give no Account where they had the Veffel; her Cargoe is Wine. And on the 21ft Inftant we met a Ship, of between two and three Hundred Tons, that had feveral1 Spanifh Gentlemen on board, whom we have treated with the greateft Civility, and brought thenf fafe into Plymouth. Her Cargoe confifts of Cochineal, Indigo, and other valuable Goods; Befides we have found One Hundred and Eighty Thoufand Pieces of Eight, and feveral Bars of "Gold in her ; fo that (he is a very rich Prize.
