Extract of a Letter from Conftantinople, AW. 8, N.S. * We continue making all the neceffary Difpofitions for carrying on the War vigoroufly againft the Perfians. * The Advices we receive from that Quarter by the ufual Channel fay, that ail Things remain in the fame Situa- * tion there ; that Schah Nadir was marching with his * Army towards the Territory fitmted between Mouful and � Babylon, and meets with no Refiftance, the whole Coun-' try being open cn that Side. However, Schah Nadir's Progrefs hitherto is not fo � great as has been reported ; and we flatter ourfelves that ' he will not gain much more upon us daring the Remain-� der of the Campaign, which generally ends in the Month * of December. P.S. The Porte has this Moment given out that an Exprefs is arrived with che News of a Victory gained by the Ocioman Troops over Part of Schah Nadir's Army ; * but the Particulars of it are not yet made publick ' They write from Naples, that feme more Troops are marched from thence to the Fron'.ieis of the Ecclefiattick �.tate ; and that his Sicilian Majeity has demanded a Free Gift of a Million of Ducats from the City of Naples, to enabled him to bear the greac Expences he is obliged to be -tit in the prefent Conjuncture. Letter from Vienna, Dec. 14, N.S. ' According to fome Advices from Francfort, Remit-� tances come very flow from France to that Court ; nay, � we are affured, that the Emperor has received no more than 18o,oco Livres for thefe nine Months paft ; but he � expects large Sums in a very little Time, in Purfuance of � the late Subfidy Treaty concluded between him and the � French Court. * Since the Arrival of fome fecret Difpatches from the � Court of Pe:erfbu;gh, it is obferved that M. Lanzinfky, * the Ruffian Miniller, is almoft always ihut up in hlsClo- * fet, except when he comes to confer with the Queen's � Minifters, which happens frequently : All that we know � of the Matter is, that thefe Conferences roll on the Mar- quisde Botta's Affair. The Marquis, we heaT, will in a few Days publifh his Vindication, wherein he will prove, 4 among other Things, that he never did fee or know feve-4 ral of the Perfons taken up on Account of the Confpi-' racy, which he is faid to have had a Hand in. The Mi-4 niftry have received Advice, that the French are Mafters 4 of both Sides of the Rhine in the Neighbourhood of 4 Hunninguen ; but they don't feem to be very uneafy about 4 it : Their Thoughts are chiefly turned towards Flanders, 4 where the French threaten to aft with a very Powerful Army early in the Spring. Several Conferences have 4 been held on this Matter, the Refult of which is, thatas 4 many Troops as poflible muft be aflembled on that Side, 4 in order to join the Allies.' Letters from Genoa fay, that the King of Sardinia has lent Troops into fome Fiefs of his own in the Marquifate of Final, which makes the Republick conclude that his Sardinian Majefty's Defign is to put himfelf in Poffeffion of the whole Marquifate : In the mean time, though the Senate cannot pretend to oppofe him to any Purpofe, they are neierthelef?, putting the Town of Final in a Condition to make fome Refiilance, becaufe ic will afford them a Hanoi; to enter a Proteft againll Violence, Sec. They are like-wife putting Savonna in a Poirure of Defence. The Republic's CommifTary General at Baftia has concluded a Convention with the Malecontents of Corfica, fome Articles of which are already publiftied, and the whole Piece will ipeedily be made publick. Thefe Letters add, that the Mailers of fcveral Veffels arrived at Genoa f.om Mar-ffiHer and Toulon, report, that a great Number of French and Spaniih Trcops are expected every Day in Provence, jn order to embark for Italy. They write from Turin, that the King of Sardinia is actually making warlike Preparations in all his lirong Towns, and has ordered feven Batail'ons to Nice, to re-i.iLrce the Troops already in that Place under toe Com-mar.d of the Maiquis de Suza. J hey tell us from Copenhagen, that the Match between the Princeis of Denmark and the Succeffor to the Crown of Sweden, will not uke Place; but that the Princefs is defigned for che Duke of Cumberland.
