The Ambaffidpr of Venice has frequent Conferences with the Minifters of State ; wherein he endeavours to perfwide them, that it is rhe Intereft of the Pope, to make a League with the Republick, for maintaining their common Neutrality, and if his Ho-linefs will declare, as they have done, that he will in conjunction with them, declare againft the party, who (hall commit .any hoftility, either againft the iiccleliaftick State or the Republickv 'tis likely due nothing would prove mote effe&ual for their common fccuriryl becaufe none of the Parties would bring upon them the Pope and che Venetians, who might turn the Scale. The Pope has not ohIv written to the Roman Catholiqk Princes to diifiiade them from owning the new Ki^g of Pruffia, but alfo the' Eieftor of Brunfvick, with which the Imperial Am-balTador feems very angry, and faid publickly, that his Milter would be very much furprfzedto hear, that inftead of the affiltence he expected from this Court, ihey fhould endeavour to difturb and divide the Empire.

Some French Ships are lately arrived here, with fome Troops and recruits for the Milanese ; and they write from Thoidon, that feveral Batallions are expefted there, to inibaikfor Italy, upon advice that the Germans will invade the Milanez-e with a more powerful Army than was at Jirft intended, and that die Emperor is like to have a considerable Party on this fide the Wlps, as fbon as his Friends have an opportunity to declare far him, without expoling themielves to a manifeft danger. By a Ship from Confiantinopls we have advice of the 6th inftant, that the Grand Signiorisfet out for Adr'tample, and was to be followed by the Grand Vizier, and other Minifters of the Port. They write from Smyrna of the fame date, that the French grow very proud and infolerrt in thofe parts, and tell she Turks t that when ever new War breaks oyt, of which they fpeak as of a certain thing, their Grand Monarch has lb difpofed his Fleer, that the Englifh and Durch will be unable \o fend a Ship into the iMtdilefranean.
