Th? Revenue of the Poll Office?in the Spanijh Nether-/.'%v// is Farmed for 9 years at 175000 Fiorinsa year, vhi:h together with the fuppreffion of agreat many OS;e^ in thofe Provinces-will bring a great deal of Money i::to the Kings'Coffers.

We have nothing material from Poland fince the breaking up of the Congrefs held at Grodn* for endeavouring to reconcile the inteftine Troubles of Lithuania. They have begun in Poland to hold the Provincial or Petty Dyets, to draw up instructions for, the Deputies to the General one which is to be held.in a fhort time. The King of Sweden continues encamped in the Neighbourhood of Grobin, but we hear that Prince intends to go for Rig*, where he is to keep his Court this Winter. Paris, November 12. Cur Letters from the Confederate Army at Urago of the 4th inflant lay, that a detachment of the Germans having palTed the Oglio, furprized a Span-jb Regiment of Dragoons of ijo men, pofted atC�z,/iro neat Canonic*, and took all of Vm Prifoners. Another detachment of their Army commanded by the young Prince of Vandemon-., pafled the River Adda at a lord, beat fome Troops which guarded the fame, and returned to their Camp with feveral Prifoners, and a good booty. The King has fent orders to his Generals to ufe all poffible means to continue in the Camp at Urago, that the Germans maybe obliged to break up fir 11 *ni retire ; but by feme datetters some over to us* we are informed, that Prince Eugene is refolved not to decamp till he has received fome reinforcements, which he expects from Germany, and they give out rhatthofe Troops are already advanced on the Frontiers of Tirol. 'Tis certain that both Armies fufFer very much, and efpecialJy the Horfe, which are obliged to go feveral miles from their Camp to find Forra^e, which is fuch a fatigue, that they are not able to undergo the fame any longer. They fay that Prince Eugent has received great fumms from Vienna, and thac his Commiffioners have bought 2 great quantity' of Provisions in the Valley qfCenitmiut and other Difbi�h to the North of Brefcia. The Re-publick of Venire makes preiling inftances to our Court, that our Army may quit their Territories; but our intereft does nor permit to comply with their requefr, tho never fo juft and reafonaWe init-felf, as Jong as the Imperialifts continue in rheir Camp; The King being informed of the great projefts, which are now on foot againft us and Spain, has refolved to augment his Foot icineach Company, and f, in each TVcop of Horfe and Dragoons. This augmentation will amount to 60000 men, including therein a new draught of our Militia ; and feeing the States General make fach extraordinary preparations, we hear that we fhall have by the beginning of the Spring above iooOco men in the Spamfh Netherlands.^e hear the K- of Spain intends to fend 3000 difmounted Troopers from Spain into Italy, and they continue to fay, that his Catholick Majelty will command in Perfon his Forces in the Milancze the next Campaign. Frequent ExprefTes arrive here ixomCologn, with an account of the prefenc pofture of affairs on that fide ; and as the divifion between the Elector of that name, and his Chapter are very favourable to our interefls, the King has aflhred that Prince, that he will ba powerfully affilr-ed im cafe of peed. The new Lines Prince Levis of Baden has ordered to be made in the Palatinate on this fide the Rhine, give great umbrage ta this Court, and Monfieur ds Chainoti our Minifter at R*� tisbonne is ordered to prefent a Memorial to-the Dyer* and reprefent unto them, that part of the ground wherein they make thofe Lines belonging to the French, this cannot be looked upon but as a notorious infraction of the Treaty of Refvick, and that therefore his Majefry requires that the making of thofe Lines be ffopr, and that rhe Circles recall their Troops imployed inthat fervice. Greatfumms are remitted to that Minifter, to crofs the Negotiations of the Cardinal of LembergL who is expe&ed at .Ratisbm, with the Character of firft CommiffioneT of the Emperor. The news we receive from England is very unacceptable to this Court, and in particular the Iryleof the AddrefTes prefented to the Lords Jufrices, which fheweth what we are to expeS from trie unanimous refentment of rhat Nation. 'Tisia vain that we tell them that this is no breach of the Reftotci Peace. Our Miniftets, it Teems, have taught the World to difringuilh the Litetal and Spiritual fenfe of Treaties. London, November 8. On Thurfdaf the Parliament met and was farther Prorogued toThurfday the 13 inflant.
