The Emperor, the King of the Remans, and the whole Court appearM in the great Proceffion that was made on that occafion, and vifited feveral Churches. Some Expreftes are arrived here fiom the Hague, and have brought, as 'tit faid*, very good news. Several Princes who feemed engaged againft us, inclining now to declare for his Imperial Majefty ; and they feem here very confident that the Circles of the Empire will do the like fbon after the meeting of the Parliament of England, whofe refolutions are to give life to the great projectsrhar have been formed, for preferving a Ballance ofPower in Europe. According to our laft advices from Italy K Pnnce ��gi�eof Savoy continues incamped near Ponte Oglio, and they write from thence, that they have taken fuchcareof getting Provilions, that they do not queftion but to be able to keep the Field longer than the French and Spaniards. Our Parties continue to be very fuccels-ful againft the FrenGh.and by the accounts we have, 'tis certain that the Enemies have loft more men in the rencounters that have Happened between Parties and Detachments,thin they would have loft in a general Battel. Our Letters from Rome tell us, that the late InfurrecYton in Naples in favour of the Emperor is altogether fupprened ; but thefeverity of the Viceroy has fo incenfed the People, and moll of the Grandees, that we are afiured that we have now a greater party in that Kingdom thanever we had, who will declare themfeWes when a fair opportunity offers. The Cardinal of Umburg his Imperial Ma-jefty's high Commiffioner to the Dyet of the Empije, will fuddenly repair ro Ratisbomte, and he has fuch intlructkmsj that'tis hoped that all grounds of mif-enderftaddings between the feveral Members of the Empire will be removed, and chiefly thofe relating to Religion, for the claufe in the $th Ar.ticle of the Treaty of Refwidt,^ which hae been the occafion of fo many troubles, will be out before it be long. Berlin, October 22. The King offraffi* has written to Count Wells, Envoy of the Emperor, to the. Kihg of Sweden, and to the Sieur Cranenlurg,Env"6y of the States General to the fame Court, char the Czar of-Mufcsmj having lent him a full PbAvercip conclude a Peace with the King of Sweden, he d^fjres that they will interpofe their friendly Offices, Fot, perfwading ftis Swedijh Majefty to name a place to enter upon a Treaty : His Pmjjian ,Majerty has1 thought fit to let" thofe Miniftets know, that the Czar makes fuch offers, that he doss not queftiontut a Treaty may be concluded in a-weeks tims. They expect hare with the ut/noft impatience, the return bf,the Exprefs fent to &gat and in the mean tim.e we have advice, that the King of Sweden has favourably received the P-ropo&ls of Monfjeur Crnnmbur�. Tis certain that the French have done whatever they can'to gain that young Prince over to their Inrereft, and we hear �Count Guifcard lent feveral Proposals, to Count Pjper; MinJfter of?fare to IheKing atSu>eden,bvLt his Majefty rejected every one of 'em, and would not give ffny Audience of -leave to the French Ambaflador.Thefe difpofirions, virh the refolutiont of tnoft �fthe Pa-latinxtjs inPe'/.W, make ui hope that a fudden Peace' wiAl be coschjtieil in Livonia, and that the Kirvgsof Stt>d';: and Poland will fend the beft part of their T reaps ro the affillance of the Emperor. According to our laft advices from Gndno, the aiTembly held in that place for pacifying the civil troubles in Lithuania, is like to breakup in confulion, and the Family of $api:ha have notified to one of the Minifters of the King of Poland, that they began,to he fenfible that his Majefty did not interpofe his Mediation and Authority with that Zeal, that their fervices to him de-ferved, and that therefore they fhould be compelled to have recourfe ro fome Foreign Power.which they have hitherto avoided, out of their affection for their Counrry- The Swsdijh Regiments which are quartered in fome of their Lordfhips, have'already obliged the Confederated Nobility to quit the fame. *Franckfort, October 26.

The Ftench grofrr-Kety jealous of the defigns of Prince LewfS of Baden, and hive considerably reinforced their Frontier Garrifonsto prevent any fyrprize. The Imperial Comraiffiojiers continue to buy a vaft quantity of Pro'vifionS, that the  Armies may be. fubfifted whenever they take the Field; which was one of the firft Conditions inGfted upon'py-Prince���6 of Baden before he. would ac- ' cept the Command of the Im perial Army. The differences between the Elector and Chapter of G%� grow daily greater and greater. The Elector has caufed an aniwer to the Manifefto of the Chapter to be pefted up in Coltgn in the night time, and the Chapter is preparing an anfwer thereunto. As the -Elector is openly engaged in the French interefts, - *nd the Chapter i� thole of the Empire, thofe dif-iferences are very confiderable, and the City "^f CoUgn,btfides its being by Situation of the higheft importance, is not to b� wondered, that the French fhould have been fo long hovering about to furprize " it,andrthat the neighbouring Princes on tbe other  fide, fhould take all imaginable meafures for providing for the fecurity ofit.ThePalatineTroops incamped at Mulbeim near Cologn, are building a Fort on the Other fidcof the Rhine, for fecuring the FlyingBridge - tbiy have in that place.
