THis Court receives frequent ExprefTes from Row?, and other parts in about our Negotiations in that Country relating to the Affairs oi Spain. Counc Lembetg, our Affibairkdor at Rome, Ins informed our Court, that he hasdeiired of Me Pope the Inveftiture of the Kingdom of titles pnd Sicily, and that he has received no other Anhverv but tiut tis HoHnefs would tjke time to co )(ider of fo weighty an Affair. Some prime Letters' from thence fay, that the Court o�Home, and the Itali,\?t Princes, fet all their. Engine? at .vork ro prevent a War in h*ly, and they do not want Emiuaries here, who would fainoerfwade the Eoipcror againft fending his Troops into that Country, and to carry on the War only towards the Rhine. Whether or no this Intrigue will fr.cceed; time will dffcover, hut in the mean time they talk here, as if they were refolved to aflert their Right to the Mt'Uruze and o-ther Countries with all im aginable vigour. They ejepeft with much impatience an account of the Negotiations of our Miniftersin Holland and England -% for thofe two Powers have fuch an influence on the Councils of Europe, rkat their refolutions are like to determine Peace or War. By an Exprefs from Count Zinztndorf, our Envoy ac Paris, the Emperor has received advice, that the Council of the Regency of Spain have put themfelves under the protection of France, but they can hardly believe here, that the Grandees of Spain will tamely fubmit -to that proceeding of three or four men, which will bring an eternal difgrace upon the Spanijb Nation. The Spamjh Ambaffador reading here, has not notified the accef-llon of the Duke of Anjm to the Crown of Spain, but expects to receive Orders by the firft Exprefs to notify the fame, if our Court is willing to receive it. Our Negotiation at Milan h� not been fuccefsful, and they feem refolved to ftand by the Duke of Anjou with their Lives and Fortunes. Conningtberg, January 3. The Eleftor and Electo-1 refs of Arandtnbtirg arrived here on the 59th pad, being received with great acclamations of Joy, and I faluted with a general difcharge of the Cannon round our Fortifications. They were complimented the next day by rhe Magiftrates and other Perfons ^f Quality, and congratulated on their new Title. The Coronation of that Prince is fixed to the iStji inftant, and the preparations for it are cairied on with an extraordinary diligence. In the mean time Circular Letters are ifined out, requiring the Nobility and Deputies of the Cities of this Country, to repair here toaflilr'at that Ceremony. There is no Foreign Mirufter expefted here, except rhe Envoy I #f the Emperor. We hear the King of Poland was invited hither, but'tis thought the troubles in Li-I thiianla, and other weighty Affairs he has now upon h\s hands, will norpermit him to take that Journey. [ We have*received Letters from Nerva dated the 3d and 5t h of laft morith, with a full account of the Victory of the Swedes. They tell us, that the Muf-tovilts threw into that Town during' the Siege, which haslafted 6 weeks, above 3000 Bombs, which hive dene a world of "damage-to .the Hou/es, but have killed few people. The King of Sweden hav� ihg received advice that 6000 Mufcoviies were got together on the other fide of the River Nerva and had with them feveral pieces of Cannon, his Maje-fry made a Detachment of his Forces to fight them* but upon fheir approoch the Mufcovites quittel their Ca;np and Artillery, and retired with fo milch pre* cipiration, that the Swedes couid overtake but i� of them. The Booty*which the Swedes have taken is very confiHer;ible,~befides 150 Pieces of Brafs Cannon,'^ Mortars, 3000 Bombs ready loaded. 148 Colours, 14 Standards, and 4 pair of Kettle Drums. Thefe Letters add, that the King of Sweden after having driven the Mufeovite* out of his Country, is to bring his Army, towards Riga ; and fome advices from thence fay, that they are preparing fome apartments, his Majelty defigning to keep his Court irx that place during the reft of the Winter. 'Tis faidl that our Prince will fignalize the beginning of his Reign by procuring Peace in this part of the world, and thatto that e�d he intends to offer his Mediation to the Kings of Sweden and Poland, and the Czar cf Mufcavj. Hamburg, January 7. Great endeavours are ufed to compofc the divifions occafioned in the Empire by'the erection of the ninth Electorate, and the Duke ef Zetl has fent an Envoy to Copenhagen about that affair. The King of Denmark being rhe moiVconfide-rable Prince, who oppofes the fame, they hope r� finifh that affair, if they can bring over his Majsily, to give his confent thereunto, and as the Minifter of ZeS is to be feconded by thofa of the Emperor, Eng-land and Holland, 'tis believ'd that Negotiation will be brought to a good iflue On t.e other hand the Miniflers of France, Wolfembuttie and fome other Princes labour very hard to engage the King of Polandin their Interefb; and they write from Warsaw, that the folticitations of the Preneh Envoy for perfwading his Majefty to make Peace with Sweden, proceeds from the fame principle, and that there was an offer made to that rrihee, to choofe hirri as Generaliflimo of the Forces defigned to oppofe thefaid Electorate. Whatever it is, the* Victory of the King of Swtfc* is like to produce aPeace en that fide, and the Houfe Hannover has a friend in the perfon of that Prince,, upon whom they may rely on alloccaflons. Hague, January 15. The actions of our taft India* Company are fallen to 498, upon a report fpread abroad, that the-Englijh have poffefled themfelves of an I Hand in the Eaft Indies, wherein they have found Cloves, Cinnamon, *an<^ other Spices. What ground there is in that repott, we cannot tell; bur whither rrue*or falfe, 'tis certain that it has produced that bad effect in the 'Eaft Indim Stock. Our laft advices from Madrid fay, that feveral Grandees have expreffed agreat diflatisfaction againft the proceedings of the Council of the Regency ; bur Cardinal Portocarrero, theprimum Mobile thereof, hopes that the pre'fence of his new Matter will appeafe their mur-murings, and has fehthim fevml Exprefles to dellr� him to haften his journey as much as poflible. Paris, January 15.
