From Peterfljurgh they give us the following Extract of a Manifefto' publifhed by the Emprefs of Raffia concerning the late Confpiracy againft her. ELIZABETH the Firf, Emprefs and Sovereign of all the Ruffias, &c. T^TOBody is ignorant how the late Miniilers,Overman, rJ_\j Munich, Lowenwolde and others, were condemned, according to the Laws of the Empire,for the .Crimes committed by them not only againft our Perfon, but alfo againft the Empire and the publick Tranquility, at it appears by our Manifefto of the 2d of February 1742. It is likawife well known, that inftead of punifhing them with Death, which they fo juftly deferved,' we contented, onrfelves, through'an Effccir of bur Imperial Cleaiency, tobanifh them to diven remote Parts of rJie/Bmpire. We flattered ourfelyes, that oar Moderation to the Guilty would have made on them, a> well'as on their Relations and Friends, that Impreflion which we had a Right to expect ; but iuftead of a proper Acknowledgement a, very great Mifchief arofe from it, which has been.revealed to os by fome of our faithful SabjeSs: After � ftrifct Examination it has beea found out, that the late Lieatenant-Ge-neral Lapuchin, his Wife Nataliay"and his Son, the late Lieutenant-Colonel John Lapuchin, forgetting their Duty to God, without fearing, the juft Judgment* of the* Al-mighty, and without acknowledging the Favour we granted them after they had been arretted a* Accomplices in the Crimes of the abovmenrioned Minifters^ xmt of their Affection fifffthe Princefs Anrie,; as well as thtir Friendfhip far the law Grand Marfhal Lowenwolde, and "upon Pretence of fpme Difcontent, tojoK'it inter their Heads to deliberate, in Conjunction with the Counted Anne Beftucheff and the 'Marquis de Botta, -late Minifter from Hungary,' in the frequent .Meetings they.nad together?,^ix^-M�gw*> <**p�W ' ua oJF'tWlttxporUi Tkrooo, *a ifhed for; would take place. All this plainly appearsJVom their own Confef-fions and other Proofs. Stephen Lapuchia, in hopes of an approaching Change, fpoke of as in the moft contemptuous Manner, and, out of. his Friendfhip for the Princefs Anne, refufed to acknowledge us as Heirefs to the Imperial Throne, which belongs to us by all the Laws. He induced his-Son-johrr to taHcin the fame Strain, and the latter being wrought upon by the Marquis de Botta, fpread Reports tending to make the People rife, and foment Difturbanees in the Empire. , Stephen Lapuchin did moreover, in Contempt of our Sovereign Au-. thority, endeavour to afperfe and vilify the Perfons of our Minifters, the Senate, and others, whom we had raifed at Court, extolling all the while his own Services, tho'he never did us any. .He fought and wifhed that Ofierroan, Munich, Lowenwolde, and their Adherents, tho' declared E-nemies to our Perfon and the Country, might return to Court: He confulted on this Head with the Marquis de Botta, who promifed to employ large Sams for this pur-pole out of his own Pocket, in hopes that, after the Return of the Exiled, they might labour fuccefsfully towards the Reiteration of the Princefs Anne and her Son: All the Con-verfation at' their Meetings turned upon nothing but this Subject, and the Means to tumble us out of the Imperial Throne. Natalia* his Wife, and Anne Beftucheff conflantly deli-berated, as well with the Marquis de Botta, as among themfelves. on thefe dangerous Enterprizes : Natalia reported to her Hufband whatever fhehad learned of the Marquis de Botta, and confulted with him on this Subject. The Knees John Putatin, late Captain Reformed in our Life-Guards, and Sophia, the Wife of the Chamberlain Lilienfeld, took Part in thefe pernicious .Schemes, and held, on this Occafion, Difcourfes together injurious to our Perfon, Natalia Lapuchin, who was a Lady of our Palace, ab-fented herfelf for a long time from our Court, contrary to her Duty, in Contempt of our Perfon, and in hopes of a fpeedy Change, though her Relations oftentimes made Re-prefentatipns to her on that Head. Alexander Sybin, who was formerly firft Gommiflary of the Navy, was privy to the pernicious Defigns hatching againft' us, and often heard the injurious Speeches of Natalia Lapuchin ; and though he was not ignorant of the dangerous Confeqaences thereof, he kept the whole Secret, againft his Duty and his Oath, whereby he made himfcif an Accomplice in the Crime. ^sJoAjtrLapnchin, Son of Stephen Lapuchin, not only liftened to, and communicated to others, the wicked Defigns of his Father, but did alfo, through an Efieft of his Malice, and in hopes of an approaching Change, refufe to conform tu wire
