T.'^v-y iiiU u? t/iar the Imperii lifts Ji ve in a manner ar discretion in the M-uiluan, which .has obliged the Duke of Mantua to write to the King co represent that hi- Subjects are entire!) ruined, and complain thac he lias been abandoned by the Foicesofhis Maietty, from whom he expefted protection, according co the v-comiijs made muoh'im by hisMajefty. The complaints of chat Prince aredoubtlefs well grounded, but therr Is no polBbiliry to hdp him in fhisprefenr jun--:;bk, unlefs our Army receives fuch reinforcements a? to enable our Generals ro repafs the OgUo to fight the Grrmans, who expefr a great body of Troops from Germany. They write from Milan, that the Bmperor ru�. fent-Placaerts by the Pott to the chief Mag^lrrates, wfrereby he exhorts them to ftukeoffthe French yoke>-a:id iubmit to him, proruiling in that cafe to their City an exemption of all Taxes and Duties whatfoever for i2.years, and threatning them in cafe they perfift in their Re&ellion, to ufe them with the utmoft fe-verify. The Abbot Orfari and the- Ba;on de Gula Sar-r.* have been feized at Mantua, and carried Prifoners to Pavia, for holding Correfpondence with Prince Eugene of Savoy'; and we hear Monfieur Catinnt complains that che Emperor muft have great Friends in the Cduncil ofWai, havintj feveral times obferved, that Prince Eugene has rn.ide fome motions, which a wife Generalas he is, would never have done, had be not been informed-ef.thc refolutions taksn by the Gef nerals of the Confederate.Army. Thofe infiriuatiohs iiom levell'd againft Pjince VaUdemotti iai.{omt others bur many are of opjiiion, that thole1 reports may be raifed for excutlnglhe Conduit of Mortfieur Cafinat. The re-cilling ofiijhac General is ttill uncertain, but the many Lampoons that are current againft hia*, feem an infalJihle prefage of his difgrace, tho the pub-lick voice is not always to be depended upon, and e� peciaDy in fuch a cafe as this, that is fc contrary to the Maxims of oik Court. Toarvillc was made Maref-chalcf fr*Kce, to comfort him againft the difgraca he received from Admiral Rutfd at/* Hogv.s.

Villeroy him&lf was continued General o>"?h� cliief Army in the Netherlands, tho there was an univerfai outcry againft him. TaUard is preferred to a greater Pott than ever he had, tho God knows how he behaved himfelf in the Siege of RbipfeU.

How far, the skill ot our Abbot Gazetteer in matters of Law is to.be depended upon we don't know,, but indeed we Should have been very much furprized, if the Validity of the Proteftation of the Emperor againft the Title of Philip the 5th, had been acknowledged in an a/Tembly held in che Houfe of his own Ambafiador, and which confided of the Cardinal ProteQor of the affairs of that Nation, and other Creatures pf Spain. This account befides implies a cutfed inuendo, for from the literal fenfe thereof, we can but infer,rhac the Emperor had a right to make that Protefhtion, hue was wanting in the form, of delivering the fame.
