His Majtlly is expected here by the latter end of the next w eek, and will imbark few d�y s after for Exgland. They write from Loo, that the Italian taken up there, has been examined, and it appears that he is not the f�me Ruffian that made lately) his efcape ouc of che Bajlile; but as he doe* not give a good account of himlelf, nor of his bu-fineis there, he iskeptactofe Prifbner.
