"�V*He Foreign Minifters rellding here have, frequent Conferences with our Mmifiers ofState.on the prefent jun&ure ofAffairs, and the Kwifr/dTjAmbaffador has had with-�V. in thefe few days two long Audiences of the Hope, on the fame fubjeft.This Court feems very ureafy and efpeciiliy lince the FrenchKing hasrefufed the Mediation of the Pope, and declared that he had no manner of Quarrel with the EmpeTor, but that if 3ny Prince offered to difpute the Title,of the prefent King of Spa in, and difhirb him in the^pofleffion of his Dominions, he wiilaffift him with alfjiis Forces. The ancient Bulls of the Inveftiture ef the Kingdoms of Naples and Sicily, have been examined in a Congregation of State in the pfefence of the Pope, but we do not hear that any refolution has been taken therein, and tills Court does not think fit to declare their mind till they fee a more favourable jun&ure. The Pope has ordered fome new Levies, and the "Italian Princes take the fame meafures ; but whether they will declare for or againfr the Emperor, time nauft difcover, tho it feems moft probable, that if they were not inclined for his I rpperial Majefty, they would declare againft him before his Troops are in Italy.

That French General has demanded of the Council iooooo Livres for fome new Works, which hethinks neceflary to be made, to this place. He defired alfo ieveral Pieces of Cannon of Dw Ferdinand* Baldez., Governour of our Cafile, who refuted Hie fame, and faid, that as long as there wai a King on the Spanijh Throne, he would cbey his orders, and no body's elfe. Our Governour has received Bills of Exchange from Madrid for 50000 Scudi, and advice that the Governour of Sicily isorder-ed'to remit the fame fumm,and the Viceroy of Naples iooocotnore. Notwithstanding the great care that the Government takes to fupprefs the party of the Emperor, a great, number of psople feem inclined to his Intereft, and efpecially tho Clergy, who fake more liberty than others, and do openly fpeak in his behalf. Their example'anduifcourfe being ofa dangerous con-fequence, the Council has (ignified to the Priors of ieveral Convents, fhit if rbe Monks do not keep within the bounds of the refpeft and allegiance they owe to his Majefty Philip the V. the Governour will'be compelled to caule fome of them ro be impaled in their Canonical Cloaths, to deter others from the like praftice.
