HE King has been -very ill for feveral days of a Violent Cholick, bur now be is very .well again. The Matefchil of the Crown has been conftanrly in, the Palace during his Majeftys indi/-pofion,. to give the necdfary orders for'preventing Tumults and disorderly afiemblies,which were like to happen had the King continued indifcofed. The Palatinates *re very bufieat this time, and holdtheir Proyin-. cia! Dyets, in order to fend tteir Deputies' to the Genetal Dyet of the Republic^ which ic to meet on . the 30th of" May next. They vvrjte from feveral parrj that the; Petty Dyets are very Tumultuous, and com.-plain very njuch againft fuch who have advifed the King to begin an unneceflary War againft the Swedes. They do alio u'nanimoufly declare againft the keeping of any Saxin Troops within the Kingdom and the dependencies thereof,' fo that 'tis believed there will be great heats and aninioiities in the General Dyer. Tiie Troubles continue in Lithuania, and che Kings Party in thaiCountry is confrderably weakned. -The Leaders of che confederated Nobility are to meet on the 21ft inllant at Wilna, abfcutfome Propofals which are to be made unto them for an accommodation of their differences with the Houl'e of Sttfiha\-but 'tis thought that meeting will/be to no purpolV, and that the General Dyet alone can apply a proper remedy to tfcufe civil Commotions, whereby a great number of People have been entirely ruin'd. The Deputies of Lithuania are returned home, the King having allured them that he had already fent otders to his Troops to march out of their Country,. but their other demands are referred to the General Dyet. 'Tis faid the Envoy of Mufcovy is to make very advantageous Propofals to the Republickin order ro ingage them to declare againft Sveden,. but 'ris not believed that lhey will hearken thereunto, not only becaufe the Swedes have given them no manner of provocation, but alfo becaufe his Swedifi Majeity has a good Army in Livonia, and another in Pomsrsma, which might attack the Republick, on the lide of Prujji*. The Sieur du Heron Envoy of the French King, is arrived here from Curland, and has had a long Conference with the King,but we do not hear what Progress he has made in his Negotiation for Peace with Sweden. The' Court is very uneafie upon advice that the Nobility of the feveral Palatinate1; of the Crown hive tefolved to accompany th niT*nia, and that they have advice that the Czw of Mujcovy inclines to enter into a Treaty with Sweden, and that it is not unlikely that a negotiation will be (horfly fet on foot in otder to a Treaty. The Prohibition publiihed in Sweden, forbidding the wearing of ai�y Silk S'tulFs was like to have occasioned 5;reat Commotions ; but fbme days before that Prohibition was to take place, an Exprefs arrived from Livonia, with advice that the King had been graciouf-ly pleated to allow his Subjects a year longer for wearing what Siik Stuffs they have*. They tell m a-gain, that the Fleitor of Brunfvick and the Duke of Zrii are to lend iScoooo Crowns to the King of Sweden, and that his Msjefty mortgages unto them the Revenue of the Dutchles of Brcwtn and Ferdent Letters from Ctpc;iJ>j*e>j fay, that the French Amfofflador boafh that there is a defenfive and ofFenfive League concluded between the Kings "of France, . Spain an�l Portugal, whereby the latter is obliged to refute to the EngUfh and Dutch Ships, .the liberty to come into his Harbours, and to join his Forces -jvith thofe of the former ; but this advice is not credited at all, and our Merchants cannot Relieve, that Pertugal would decine againft England and Holland in favour of'Frame, where they canhaVe noven:�br moftof their Commodi-dities. - " � " � Colegn, April a*.', On Friday laft the Sieur des At-lewtZavpy of the French King to the Princes of the Rhine, had fublick audience of the Elector Palatine at Dutfhlfbrf, feeing caddu&ed thereunto by Count Stheliatd Chambe/laih to his Electoral Higariefs," wich 3 Gpiches and a'greac number of Livery Men.

The fr�-petial Commiffipners have fufficienrly' provided their M&gazines, and according to our advices from brm, the Imperial Troops will take the Held,' as fboh a/ tfteVe is any Forrage for their Horfe. ' TheSeaf^rijs ftj- very backward, that there appears no more Grafs than in February laft. The Miniflers of fome Prfrifes who oppofe the Ninth EleSorafe continueat Frankfort, waiting for the arrival of others to form a Congrefj, according to the refbluticn taken at their laft meeting at Nuremberg, but they begin to be wealy, and 'tis thought they will be gone away before the others arrive. Our advices from Sroijferlatid fay, that the Republick of Venice, has propofed a perpetual Leagne between them, the Srvitzers and the Grifow, and that their ptopofal is to be taken into confiderarion in the next general meeting of the Cantons.

On Wedncfday laft Count ^irtagdan took a revkw of the French Troops in our Sanifon, and tec out in the afternoon to do the like at Lsuvnh, and other Places.
