Madrid, December 1.   The Kings departure from Surctjdtia has been pur off forfeveral days, upon account of fome pretentions of the States of Catalonia, who iniifted upon federal things which his Majefty would not  grant, becaufe, as   thoughr, they were prejudicial to the Royal Authority.   Tliofe difpures were not over when the Letters came away, but the Court was in hopes, that the States would recede from their demands.   There is advice from Cadiz, that Count Cbateaunnaudfailed thence the lift and aad pa:i with �8 Men of War, and as he has taken Provif,-ns for 8 months, 'tis thought he isordered for the IVeJf Indies.   We have no manner of advice from the Gallions.   The Governors of Cadiz and tithe t Trading places, have tijjuiried ro the Englilh and Dutch Merchanrs of the Romilh Religion, fhat if they will continue in fhe Kingdom, they {hall be naturalizedgrai'a, and enjoy rhe lame privi'.edges as natural born Subjects.

We have now j.DutchBa-tallions in this City, and fome others are expected, yefterday came in a Birailion of Brandenburgherr. which is to be followed by fome ocheri of chat Nacion, Padcrborn and Muffler. Lieutenant General Dopft, the Baron de Hey dsn General of the Branden-burghert in the Datcby of C/rv�,and lbme otherGene-ral Officers, have had a long Conference at Dujddtrp, on rhe prefent juncture of affairs, after which Mon-fieur Dopft returned to MaeJIricht. i-j. Boats loaded with Oats, Paliizadoes, Planks, Anchors and other materials are gone by this place, for Keyferaaert and Rhimbexgtten, which the French fortify with all the diligence that the Seaibn can permit. The-Elector of Tryirt has ordered the Governour of Coblcnts to vifit all the French Beats, and fuffer no Ammunition or Arms to pafs by thac Fothefs. There ara no French Troops in Eonn as yet, but we hear to morrow or next day, they expect 4 or 5000 men. The King of PruJJiaand the Elector Palatine have refufed paffage for fome Troops the Elector of Cohgn intended ro fend to stnnibcrg. Frankfort, December J 4. It begins to frieze fb hard in this Country,that theLines in the Palatinate cannot be carryed on with as much diligence ai formerlyjin the mean time theTroops are �mployed in perfecting theFortifications of lbmeCaftles included in theLines and the Redoubts they have built for the fecurity of the fame. P. Lrsoa of Baden receives frequencExprefles -from Vienna, from whence we hear thac the Imperial Council has reiolved to buy a great body o( Troops of the Princes of the Empire, which being already trained up, will prove more ferviceable than Recruits and new L�vies. They write, that the Imperial AmbaiTador at Rome is ordered to declare to the Pope that he may fpare himfelf the trouble and charge of fending an extraordinary Nuntio f0 his Imperial Majefty about the prefent juncture of affairs. Th* Cardinal of \Amberg has made a magnificent Entry aC Hague, December jo: The States General were this day alfembled for a great while, about as 'tis thought the aifiirof fhe Saz van Ghent, from whence we hear, that th� Governor of that place fent a Captain to give warning to the French ro defift from the fame, or elfe that he would fire upon them. The latter having not given over their works, the Governor fired a fhoc; wheieupon the French lent a Captain to him ro complain of that Hollility, and know by whofe order that was done. The Governour an-fwered, that it was by order of the States General, becauie their building of that Fort was a manifeft infraction of the Treaty of Munficr, and advifed the Captain to deiift from the lame. The latter grew very impertinent, and told the Governor that there were 2000 Bombs ready inGhevt to Bombard the &*:c,and as many inForr Isabella fGrBombardingS/�;'�; but the Governor flighting that impertinence, fent him back, and told him, notwithstanding his Rho-doinonlades, he would (ire upon them, if they continued their woik,and fend a detachment of his Gai-rifon rodiflodge them frotn thence.
