Lisbon, Nov. 14- Mr. Keene, Envoy Extraordinary from the King of Great Britain, has not yet received the Anfwer he eicpefts from London, about accepting, in Form, the King's Mediation. The Deparrure of the two Mini iters nominated by his Ma/elly to refide at the Britifli Court and the Hague, depends on the Mature of that Anl wer. _ Savona, Dec. 7. We hear from the Ilk of Corlica, that Geneial Madrafs, who commands there tor the King in the Abfence of Oxint RJvaroia, is let down again before Baflia, and hath lb blocked up that Capital by Land, that nothing cm get into it but what is brought b/Sea from T-iicany. The Garrj.bn and People in the Town have made an Attempt to re-trieve themfeives by a ialiy, but were routed and o-bliged to retire within their Works. There have been lbme petty Aflairs In the We.lern Riviera and the County of Nice, in which the Germans and Piedmorr tefc have generally ha' the Advantage. Savona, Dec. ?. The Duke of Richlieu, is expected back from the Vifk he made in the Eatem Riviera, where he has eftablifljed ftrong French Garri-fons in every place : fd that thefe fame Aiies, who fo.ineen Months ago abandoned as to the Mercy of oar Enemies, are at prclent the Maters both of our Capira], and all-oar other Fortrelfes. The French have iately had a Reinforcement of betwixt 15 or l $00 Recruits. An Orfxccr was here a few Days ago rroTi Couat Brown ; b-.it, chough the Government has not yet publilbed the lubjefi of his Canmiaion, we know he h s not fiicceeded. Genoa, Dec 11. The Gulph of Sperzia is in as go?d a polure of Defence as we can wife, both on &ie Sea and Land-fide and fo is Sarzaoe and the Hills of Cento-Croci. The FortiScations added to this Capital are quite finifeed, and the new Works making in the Values of Bt&gno and Pol (even will be perfected be) ore the Enemy can pay as another Virtt, which we are in no great pain about at prefent, as this City is well provided with Neceflaries for a liege i nay, Ships from divers parts arrive fo fa.l in our Harbour, that we begin to have plenty of the Conveniences, as weU as Nece&ries of Life. The Auxiliary Troops are considerably reinforced. One of our Galiies has juft brought in four Pinks, laden with Corn for the Aulrian and Piedmonteie Troops. Bologna, Dec. n. The Au!tri.in$ has lately made a conijd-.rabie Detachment towards Monte-Altonib, and are thought to luve 18 Btccalliom, with lone Regiments of r-.orfe, in the Dutch y of Modem, and not lels than 14 Battatlions in the Dutchie* of Parma and Pia-ccntia. rf we may for�d a Judgment bv ail the Di lpo-fitions that are made, tne Winter will not pafs without tome attempt on the State of Genoa on the Eaftem fide, which we are ��ired will he ieconded by the Englife.

Orders have been given for n BattaiiJons of In^erial Troops in Lonbirdy, together witft �o�o Horfe, and jtxo Warafdins, to hold the n-fcrves in readinefs to march oa the iirft Nocice, and the common Opinion is, due they are to fo.ui Iotic i'ecrec Expedition. In order tht mote fodd nly to co npleat the Regiments, they are permitted to take in ail De-lerters that oh%r themielves. .Hamburgh, Dec. 6. The levies hereabouts go on fuoelsfully fbr the Allies. There is a Talk of a Negotiation between the Courts of London and Copen-nagen fbr a Body of Troops > but the truth or this is hitherto doubted. Several fehitary Ordonances will loon appear hi the Duchf of Mecklenberg, particularly one for creating a large Body of Militia on the roofing of regutef Troops, to be let to the Emprefs and her Allies, if the War continues. tis faid there is a Projecl likewife formed for paying the 800,000 Crowns, which the Duchy of Meek* lenberg owes to the Electorate of Hanover, and for which eight BaJlrw'idrs are mortgaged. Letters trom HanOver mention, the letting out of isoo more Recruits fbr Brabant, and af&re us, the Negotiation for the Troops of Wolfenbuttle is very much-advanced.
