Duiieinfrhe i'ame, which amount to 8000 Scudi, his Haline.fl hiving declared.that he had no power over the Purle of rhe Cardinals and orher Officer1:, to whom thole Duties belonged. The Pope mule in rli.f Con-fiftory aPathetical Speech about rhe Title of King, affiimed by tlie Elector of Brandenburgh ; wherein he pretenlei ro Ihcw, what the Emperor had done in that affilr, was 3n invasion of the Prerogatives of the See of Rami, from which all Titles and Dignifies ought tu fpring. He reprefented alio the dangerous confequtnees of {jiving ihat title to a Proreftant Prince, who has ftiz^d in his Dominions the Revenue b�?ongiri!j to the Teufonick Order, and that of Maltha, and told the Cardinals, that he had written pref-fing Lerrers ro the Roman Catholick Princes, todif-fwade rhein from owning the Elector of Brandenburgh for King of Vr-ijjh. The Pope continues ro take all poffible precautions for rhe fecuriry of the Ecclefiafti-cal State, and has d'.'ciared Marquefs M*Jp-mi, Coifi-mander in chief in the Country of Ftrrtra, and Count Paulucci co command in the fame quality at Bolo. r.ia.

The General? have viewed the parTes on our Frontiers,and given what orders they thoughfaieceflary for flic fecuriry of this Country againft the intended invafion of the Germans, and in order thereunto, marked tkst fevera! new Forts and Intrencbments. The new Fortifications of Siaiitua are carried on with an incredible diligence ; \ as alio thofe thac are making at CfftigUtmt andGvjfmli.i, and * tis reported, that as foon as our Generals ha*'e .idviee that the Germans ire af-fembled on their Frontiers, and ready to march into thePerm ex.?, our Army will march rhrothe Venetian Country, and port rhemfelves at the" Foot of the Alps,-to oppofe their paifage. The Forces of the Duke of Savoy are flforrly expected, and his Royal Highnefs, according'to our lalT advices from Turin, intends to fetoutfjeedilyfor&v/wwrfand Mantua, rhe neighbour* hood of which places are appointed for the general Rendezvous of our main Army. Our Spyes that nave been lent into Tyrol, ro get intelligence of the preparations of the Imperialists, have reported, that the Emperor has already a confiderable Army difperfed *n Tyrol, and that they build a great number of Ovens on their Frontier*, for the ufe of their Troops. The Governours and Magiftrates of rhe Venetian frontiers have proclaimed, that the RepubJick is revived to fhnd Neuter in this quarrel but the French f^m to be jealous of'em, and'tis gener�lly believed, fhac they will declare for the Emperor, if bis Imfle-' ours noma, April 30.

Count Rubutm who Commands in Tranfiivania, having notice of that d�fign, has affembled rhe Imperial Tioops with all pciTib'e fpeed.and the orherGenerals have done the like ; fo that there has noc leen the leaft diflur-bance in Hungary, upon account of this Confpiracy. Tis not certain that the Rebels Jiad anyjde/ign to Proclaim Teckely for their King,and it is not likely that the Bilhops a�d other chief Leaders being Roman Catholicks, would have chofen a Proteftant for their Sbveraign.
