ExtraS of a Letter from Stockholm, Sept. 13, N.S. * The State* of the Kingdom have refolved to affemble ' an Army of 60,000 Men, and put to Sea 20 Ships of the " Line and 4oGallies, in cafe the Difference between this * Court and Denmark cannot be adjufled in an amicable ' Manner. The Emprefs of Raffia has given frefh Affu- * ranees that fhe will affift us the Moment we are attacked : ' Her Imperial Majefty not only oners a large Body of her " bed Troops, but alfo declares that her whole Fleet fhall ' be at the Difpofal of this Crown, as foon as we want it. * Laft Week a grand Conference was held at the Palace, * upon Intelligence of a League made between the Danifh * Court and a certain German Prince. The Succeffor to * the Throne is declared Generaliffimo of the Forces of * the Kingdom. According to Letters from Copenhagen of the 18th Inftant, N.S. The Danifli Miniftxy have declared to Count Teffin, the Swedifli Embaflador, ' That the Prince Royal * having been called in a legal Manner to the Throne of �. Sweden, his Majefty could not look upon the fubfequent * Election of the DukeAdminiftrator of Holftein as Valid ; *- and therefore, he was refolved to maintain his Right in ' this Rcfpect by all the Means that Providence has put ' in his Hands. That during the Congrefs of Abo, the *. King's Minifter at Stockholm had been divers-Times af- * fured, that great Care would be taken of the Intereftj of � the Crown of Denmark in that Negotiation, in order to *: procure it a fufficient Security in Regard to the Dutchy � of SchlefwickThat the Treaty of Peace between Swe-*' den and Ruffia was, neverthelefs, concluded without fti- * pulating any Thing therein concerning this Matter. � That the King was informed of the Difpofitions of the � States of the Kingdom, when they refolved in the Dyet, * that the Prince Royal mould be declared Sueceflbr to the Throne, in cafe they did not obtain reafonable Condi- * dona of Ruffia within a certain Time. That his Ma-� jefty had feveral Reafons to doubt whether the Conditions * of Peace have entirely anfwered the Expectations of the � Swedifh Nation; and that thefe Reafons fufHciently au- * thorized him to take fuch Meafures as fie judged necef-' fary for maintaining his Honour and Dignity.1 ' Count Teffin has, by Order of his Court, returned the following Anfwer to the feveral Heads of this Declaration. * That the firft Nomination of the Prince Royal of Den- * mark having been made only by a Part of the States, ' it could not be looked upon as an Election. That the ' States of the Kingdom having approved the Articles of * Peace agreed upon at the Congrefs of Abo, the Condi-' tion in which they bound themfelves to elect the Prince * Royal of Denmark, if the faid Articles mould not ap-' pear acceptable, became thereby quite void. That in � Regard to the Security relating to the Dutchy of Schlef-' wick, the Swedifh Plenipotentiaries had done all that lay ' in their Power to get it fettled along with the Articles of * the Peace.but the Ruffian Mioifters thought it more proper * to refer the Thing to a feperate Negotiation. That if ' the Danifli Court's Scheme is: to make the two Crowns * fall on the Prince Royal's Head, (he muft have been al-' ready informed, how averfe the Swedes are to fuch an * Union: That /he ought to be allured, that the Powers * interefted in maintaining the Balance of the North, would � never have looked upon fuch a Thing with Indifference : * That, there was no Room to doubt of their being ftill in * the fame'Difpofitions; and therefore, that in Cafe the * Court of Denmark fhould perfift in her Pretentions, and . < attempt to make them good by Force of Arms, the King * and the States of Sweden flattered themfelves, that they ' Should find Affiftanceenough tofupportthe Juttice of their * Caufe with Advantage. That as to the reft, they fhould ' never fee Things come to this Extremity without the ' greateft Grief, and that they would to the End continue * to give Proofs of their Inclination to avoid a War, by ' liftening to the propereft Methods for reftoring a good * Underftanding between the two Crowns.' From Turin we have Advice, that all the Regular Troops and Militia are marched out of their Quarters to the Avenues in the Alps, in" order to difpute the Paffage with the French and Spaniards; and that his Sardinian Majefty was to set out in a few Days, and put himfelf at the Head of his Army, which cohfilts of 25,000 choice Troops. From Chamberry we hear, that the Spanifh A rmy has advanced as far as Labefloi between Briahcon and Dauphin Caftle, where it has been joined by eight French Batal-lions, and four Swifs BataMions in the Pay of France ; that the reft of the French Troops which are to join Don Philip, makingabout 15,000 Men, continue their March with all poffible Diligence, and 'tis thought that after their Arrival the Campaign will be opened firft with the Siege of Dauphin Caftle, and then with that of Fort Demont. Letters from Rome fay, that they are terribly alarmed at the News of five or fix Englifh Men of War having appeared off CivitaVecchia, in order to demand Satisfaction of the Government for letting the Spaniards land Artillery and Ammunition there: A Congregation of eight Cardinals has been held on this Affair, and an Anfwer fent to Civita Vecchia; but what the Nature of it is, they cannot yet tell. Extra3 of a Letter from Genoa, Sept. 12. N.S. ' We have Advice from Ventimiglia, that an Englifh ' Ship having caft Anchor a few Days ago in the Road of � that Port, the Captain defired Leave to fend fome of his * Officers afljore to view the adjacent Mountains; but the ' Board of Health refofed it; upon which the Ship went ' back to Admiral Matthews, who fent her thither again ' in Company with a Frigate, and two Bomb Ketches, or-< dering them to bombard the Town, in Cafe they were ' not allowed to fend fome Officers afhore. The Magi-' Urates being intimidated at thele Menaces, foon agreed to * it, and the Officers went to take Plans of the Country ' round about; after which they did the fame at Bordi-' guerra, and St. Remo, in fpite of the Reprefentations of ' the Magistrates of thofe two Places. We talk of cutting ' off all Commerce with the Places where the Englifh Ships * touched at. P.S. Admiral Matthews, who cruizes with feveral Men * of War off Villafranca, has landed fome Artillery, and ' ordered it to be planted on the Hills, at fuch Places ' where the Spaniards may attempt a Paffage into Pied- * mont.' According to Advices from Fribourg of the 18th Inft. N.S.
