Ur Letters from Warsaw fay, that the Commiffioners appointed by the King of Poland for adjufttng the differences between the Houfe of Sapieha and the Nobility of Lithuania, have drawn up a Treaty of accommodation, but they feem to be a-fraid that one of the Parties will not ratify the fame, feecaufethey are allured of the powerful affifhnceof the Sweies, who continue in Lithuania and Samo-gitia. Several Senators of Poland have removed their bed effects to Dtntzick, and the King himfelf, according to fome Letters, has fent his Jewels and a-ther rich moveables to Cracow, and ordered jff-his Troops in Saxony to march to the Frontiers of Silejia, to be ready ac hand Co return into Poland in cafe of need. We hear from Berlin, that the Anni-verfary of the Coronation of their PruJJian Majefties was celebrared there in great folemnity, and that the Queen intends to go for Hannover to refide there for fome time. The $000 men the King ef Prujfia fends to the affiftance of the Dutch are to begin their march in a few days. Monfieur Obdam Envoy of the testes General of the United Netherlands has been at the Court of Wolfembuttle, and has endeavour'd to perfwade that Prince to come into the Grand Alliance againft Fratca, and fend his Troops to the affiftance of the Emperor and his Allie-.Some Letters fay, that the Miniftersof that Prince having in their Conferences ufedaStile unufual between their Ma-fter and the States, Monfieur Obdam made them fenfible of their miftake, and plainly told them that the World was fufficiently inform'd who had been at trie charges of the Levies their Duke had made, and who maintained them, and that he would be forced to dr.band them as foon as the Money he received from abroad fhould fail. A Phyfician and 2 Women have been Executed here, being convicted of feveral Murthers. Hague, January 17. Our Letters from Franckfirt fay,that they work on the new Lines in thePalatinate with an incredible diligence, notwithstanding the continual rains they have had of late. Thole advices add that a good body of Troops is to pafs the R&/�eand quarter within thofe Lines, and that they build a great number of Barracks at Spire: Count Naffau Wcllburgh General of the Troops of the Circle of the Upper Rhine having received an Exprefs from the Elector Palatine, fet out Poft from Franckfirt for Dujfeldorp, which confirms People in the opinion they have, that the Confederates will in few days enter upon Action, and fall upon the Frenchv to hinder them from fending into Italy the number of Troops they had at fiifc intended. The Forces of the States are in a very good condition, and our Frontiers fo well provided that we fear nothing from the French, who baing fenfible that the War muft prove fatal to them, fake all podible care to prevent it, and have much abated of the haughtinefs they ul'ed to have. They formerly wanted no pretences to declare War ; a Picture reprefentin^ to the Life fom* Transitions of their Court.the Kings Glory,or fomething of that nature, was enough to frame a Declaration, and "round an Invafion of the Territories of their Neighbours ; but now the cafe is altered ; that Court i� infeniible, they flight the ex-preiljons contained in the AddrefTes of the Counties. _ Cities and Corporations in England, and the firing upon thuir Troops near the Saz, van Ghent, and in the Eleftoratof Cologn, is not a fufficienc provocation to oblige them to break the Treaty of Re/wick: Brujfels, January z-j. Monfieur. Je Puijfegur is arrived here from Paris, and has affiffed in a Council of Wat, which was held on the prefent juncture of affairs, and the refolution of the Parliament of En~ gland; and new Commiffions have beenIlTued out for railing 2 other Regiments, that we may have a Body of 40000 men of our own. Several Waggons with Bombs, Granadoes, Powder and 0-ther Ammunition, are gene by this place for Ma-lines, where the Generals have refolved tOfjmake their General Magazin, that place being conveniently fituated for that ufe. ifeflerday the States General of Brabant and Lirr.buigh met here to fettle the ceremoniale of the homage they are to pay ro the King olSfain, which Ceremony will be performed without any pomp and magnificence, becaufe our Treafury is fo exhaufted, that we have no Money to fpare for that folemnity. The 4 Deputies of the States of Brabant who were appointed for fettling the Capitation, continue their Conferences with the Minifters who have propofed that fine project, and notwithftanding care is taken to perfwade the World that that Tax will not prove fo heavy as we ars af-fraid, there are fuch grumblings amongft the People, that 'tis likely they would not fubmit to it, were they in a condition to oppofe ir. Don Qjiirotom lat� Arobaffador to Holland continues indifpofed of the Gout, and has defired to be recalled to Madrid, but he could not obtain leave, becaufe they will employ him in thefe Provinces. The laft Lefters from Paris have occalioned here a great furprize, for it Was not imagined, that the report we had Ionic time fince, that his Catholick Majelty would go into Italy next Campaign, had any manner of ground. Thofe Letters tell us pofitively, that the molt Chriltian King has publickly declared, that his Grand Son fhould go to Naples next Spring, which makesfome People here very uneafy, for they cannot believe, that any reafian ou ght to oblige his Catholick Ma-jefly to go for Italy, and quit Spain, where there are no Troops, and where [the party of the Emperor, encouraged and affifted by the Englifh and Dutch Fleets, may rife in Arms, and give another turn to the affairs of that Kingdom; they feem very much to rely upon the King of Portugal, but as that Crown has more caufe than any other to be jealous of the Union of France and Spain, many are afraid that the Portuguese will turn fhort upon us, as foon. as they have a fair opportunity to break a League, which they have concluded ou: of fear and neceffiry. The news we have received from England, proves a great mortification to our new Frenchified Spaniards, and our Gazetteer is refolved, itfeems, to exceed the in-confiderate zeal of the Writer of the Pari: Gazette. The latter has given us a plain Abftrait of the Kings , Speech and the AddreiTes of both Houfes ; but ours has beftowed fome reflections upon them, which e-qually betray his ignorance and malignity. He finds fault with them for giving the Epithet of Pretended to the Suppofiritious Prince of Wales: He cannot endure, neither that the Lords mould tell the King in their Addrefs, that hi* Majeffy, his Subjects and his Allies cannot be fife and recure, till the Houfe of yiujiria is reftored to their Rights, wiiich, fays he, very impertinently, does not agree with the refolutions of the laft Pari amenf, which fo much exclaimed agaiuft the Treaty of Partition "of Spain : Can any thing be more ridiculous than this, and is it not furprizing, that the Minifters mould fuffer the Gazetteer to publifh fuch trifle"^ Whan
