The conduii of rhe latter is daily more and more fufpe&ed, by the Kings Minifies, for he h*s all along exprefTsd his difliking.* War With Sweden, and that the King fhould keep his Saxon Troops contrary to his former promifes ro the Dyer, held in the year 1699. In the mean time his Majefty reinforces his Saxons by ieveral deteaebments Under the notion of Recruics,-and as things �re difpofed we may truly ivy, that he has no inclination to fend rhem away. Count Straerman Envoy Extraordinary of the Emperor, has frequent audiences of his Majefty, wherein he endeavours to perfwad* him to make a Treaty wirh Sweden, for the Forces of his Matter being im ployed either on the Rhine, or in Italy, they will not be in a condicion to prevent the intended irruption of the- Swedes into Saxony, which will be like wife connivtd at by fome other Princes,who can* riot but take it ill.that hisMajefty mould rather give ear to the pernicious Counfels of (bme Incendiaries, than to their friendly and uninterefted advices. We hear ^tom Lithuania, that the Nobility continue in the fame rcfolution , not to agree to any accommodation wirh the Houfe of Sajitha, till they are turned out of all publick'Offices in that Datchy, which much difofeafej the King, who relied very much on theaflulance of that Family fof the profecution of his defigm.

As the Imperial Troops were all on their march when the Exprefs came away, we hope the next Courrier will bring advice , that they have parted the Mountains, and are nurched towards Verona, to pafs the Riv�r Adige. Prince Eugene writes, that he will make all poffible hafte to ingage the French, before they are reinforced by the Troops of Savoy, fo that fhorcly we may expect to hear of an action. Prince Ragotzi and other Confpi-raCors are arrived at Neufiadt under a ftrong Guard, and they are kept fo clofe, that no body is admitted to fee them, upon pretence of Confeffion or otherwife.
