OUr Letters from f*Vfj� i;ive fome hope of an acCommod;iriou of rhe Intcftina Troubles of Lithuania, for w* are told that Prince Sapieba has declared, that he is contented to reiign his Place of General or*the Forces of that Dutchy, provided the Nobility will give him fome faristacrion for the incredible damages he and his Vaflkls have fti/rained from them.-Accocding to our Advices from Milfau, the King of Pdani is fuddenly expected in thofe parts.toCom-mand his Army in perfon againft the King of Sweden, who is on his match from Revel for Riga, to protect that City againft the Iniults of rhe Saxons. In the mean time we-are told, that the latrer iuve alre.idy fe cured fome Pafles about that place, and make preparations to Bombard it, before the King of Sweden is arrived with his Army. 'Tis certain that a Body of Mitfcovites are to aft in conjunction with the Saxont, who, are not ftrong enough to make head againft the Swedes. Several Saxon Officers are gone through this place for Germany, having been obliged to quit their Employments for want of Money, for making their Equipage againft the Campaign. They tell us, that there is a great defertion among their Souldiois, who are not better paid than their Officers. Paris, July 16. Since the Duke of Anjous .Accef* fion to the Throne of Spam, feveral perfons skilled in Commerce have been employed by the Minifrers of State, to draw Schemes for reftoring the Spanijb Monarchy to its former Luftre, and reviving rhe Trade of this Kingdom, which hss been decaying for near thefe twenty years paft. They tell us, that thole Gentlemen have formed feveral Projects, which.-witl come to light inX due time, but now they talk only of two, which are very material. The firfr is to eagro& the whole Trade wilfe th* Spanijb America, -which defign is tobe carried 00 by a Jfoynt Stock of fix Millions of Livtes, whereof the King will fub� Icribe two, the King of Spain one, and the other three feall K fubferibed by the Subjects ofthe two Crowns, which (ball be forbidden upon fevere penalties to fead any Efft�h by the Galiioss into .the Wt$ Indies, liutwhatare0/the.Gfowtti or Min�facl*ue of the Dominions of both do wo* 5 and if this takes eflsct, the two Kings is cure to tbemfelve* and their Subjects, alltte T>e�/urc* of America, |or they think it will not be very diScuU to fuppiefi the Clandestine Trade, which U cvri�d en by fema other Nations in the Weft Indies. Trutiicond Project i* no lefs important than the former, for they tjljk oi monopolizing thf Woollen Trade, which they think practicable by engrafting the Spanijb Wool). This delign is likt�-wi(e to fee carried on by a Company, whofe Stock is to be forty Millions of Livrej, wherein the King and all great men are to be concerned. The reft of the Subscriptions is to be carried on by Provinces, and we hear they have already lubfeubed in Languedoc five or fix Millions towards it. Thefe are certainly very great deligns, which may prove very advantageous to us, but our Affairs in Italy feem ro take fuch a turn, fbar will perhaps cnul'e great alterations in the meafures of our Courr. Our hit Advices frorri Madrid fay, that there are grftat divirions in the Council of Spain, and that the Treaty with Portugal had never bean rati lied there, tad not she perempto- rily declared, that it was tiis Will arid Pleafurethat it mould be lb, which makes people long to fee thas Treaty $ for certainly there mnft be lbme Claufe therein, which are thought difadvantageous to the Crown of Spain. The d ifferences between the Spa-nifh Sea Officers and the Count a? Ejlrees,~. are hot yet adjuired, and we h ear the Marque Is of Leganez, who is Vicar General of theSpanifls Seas, has fent a reptefentation to Court about the lama Affair. They write fVom Flanders, that our TroQpe continue to put rbe Spanijb Frontiers in a good pofiure of defence, and that out Army in Gueldtrittnd is to be cdniidera-bly reinforced, feveral B*tallion�and Squadrons being on their march for that Country k Hague, July 1 J. Our Letters from Berliti fay, that rhe Swedijb Troops in Pttmerania are on their march for Sletin, where they are ro Encamp tothe number of 2000b Men, but upon what defign 'tis not yet known, tho tis the general opinion, thata body of 'em will be transported yifo Livonia: The DaXtjk Troops in Saxmj are ordered tb hold themfelves in a readinefs to march towards the Ahine to the Emperors affiftance^ aad the King of Denmark has reviewed' thofe that ate come into thefe Provinces. Our Officers are gone to their fefpe&ive commands, becaufe the King intends to review our Troops in a few dzys. His Ma-jefty will be going next week for Berguenopzoom, t� view the Forrirlcations, of that place, and they continue to fay, that his Majefty will refide moft of the Summer alflwrfa.ThelTnperialMinifters talk very confix dently of the Attain of and Count'tPiivatix, who told us at firft, that the Germans would neVer be able to pafs rhe Adigt, dyes not know what to fay upon the matter.'Tis certain, that the Country through.which the Germans have pait,is fo matlhy,that it would have been impoffible to march an Army that way, had not the exceffive hot weather made the ground firm. Bntfels, July 1 y. This day the Malefchat of Btufflm came hither from LnaVain, and having had a long Con-ference with the Marquefs dt Bedmar, returned in the evening to his quarters. The Officers of the French and Spanijk Troops are ordered to repair forthwith to their refpe&ive Commands, for 'tis thought that the arrival of the King of E�gland,o( wtiich we have an account bv an Ezprefs juft now arrived from our Minifter at the KagtK, may prodticti lbme alteration in the difpofition of our Troops. Letters from Madrid of the 30 th ultimo, tell us, that they continue to reform a great number of Offices, the better to raife the fufflcient Funds for the defence of that Monarchy; The new King has removed moll of the Governours in the *T carrnot depart, as *ciSj thought from Turin till th� middle of September. The^ write from M�ww,that they get ready with all poffible fpeed, a great Convoy of Ammunition and Artillery for G�f/^r/w<�,conlilHng ot 500 Waggons; So. Pieces of Cannon, 10 Mortars,and a great number of Carriages. The number of the French Troops in thefe Provinces is varioufty reported, but the general opinion is, that they are about 80006 ftrong. The Marquefs of Bedmar has received the Compliments of the Nobility on the Patent he has received from Spain, whereby, he is conftituted Commander in chief of thefeProvinc�s,with the fame Sallery as aGovernor General, but the-nomination to the vacant Imploy-ments.Ls referved to the Elector of Bavaria.
