December 2|rtti:^atDarPece^ Brajfels, December 50, �"SHc Marquefs of Bedmif' Commander General of thefe Provinces, gave fome days ago a fpiendid entertainment to the Marefchal of Bouffieri, and the  chief of the Nobility o&Both Sexes, op-on account of the Birth of the King, of Sptin, and, the confumrriation of his Marriage; andthefame was celebrated by the Magiftrates with the ufual ceremony ; but the Marefchal of Boater; being informed, that there werehut ^.Bonfires in the great place,and none olirewhere,tnd no illuminations in privateHoufes and tnat the People did,not exprefs the ufual joy on thofe occasions, he could not forbear to fay, that the neighbourhood of the Dutch bad fpoiled them, and that he clearly perceived they njicher loved their King nor the French. That Geneml might have l'parcd that reflation, feeing what joy our people expreffed la'ft year, upon the Anniverfary of the Kings Birthday ; bat it muft be owned, that the al-terationv made fince thai time in thefe Provinces, the fuopreffing of a great number of publick Offices, whereby many Families are reduced to Mendicity, tht inyafion of our Priviledges, the great Taxes im-pofed upon 'is, the utter ruin sf our Trade, and the dangeis we are threatned with, have by a juft con-fequei-.ce altered our difpofitions towards theGovern-meat.jnd make us regret the eafyReign of the late K. Chinks. Some Spanijh Regiments that marched into the places of the Elector of CoUgn, under the name ef th* Circle of Burgundy, are fentback to their former qjarters ; infomuch, that the French are wholly mailers thereof.

The Brother of the Duke of Vtxar is arrived here from Spam, and feveral Spanijb Grandees are fhortly expected, being commanded by their Prince to ..come and ferve him in this Country, which is looked upon a* a fort of an honourable Banifhment, left they (hould caufe fome trouble in Spain . The order the Duke at.Arns and his Brother received to come hither, few days after tfiey had prefeftted to the King, a reprefentation againft the equality ef the Dukes and Peers of France, with the Spanijb Grandees, introduced by his Majefly, has unfolded that myftery. Placaerts are publifhed in this City and others, inviting the Nobiiicy of thefe Provinces to enter into the Kings fervice, offering chem Commiffions to raife jnen.for compearing the Provincial Regiments that are railing, which People wonder at, for this is publishing to the World, that rheNobility,which areufually ambitious ofCom-mand.do not care to accept CommifBons from hisMa-jefty. This is the truth of the matter, but it was thought that a truth of this nature ought to have been buried in the- Arcana imperii, and not proclaimed to the World.
