THe King of Denmari continues to review the Militia of Hoi/leia, who are fo we'll disciplined, that old regular Troops do not better perform their exercifes than thefe. His Majefty is expe&ed this e-vening at Itzebie, and to moirow at Gtuckflat; from whence they write, that federal Danilh Frigers are ihottlf �xpe&ed there, and that the King of Denmark is refolvttd to raife euftoms upon all the Ships that ftiaU go up or down the Elbe, .the Emperor having, as'tis/aid, confented to it. This makes our Merchants very uneaiy, and efperially, feeing this City is to pay 500000 Rixdollars, upon account 6f fomc old pretentions of a neighbouring Piince.

Our lift advices from Warfaw confirm the march of the Swedes for Cracow, and the retreat of the Cardinal Primate to Dantzjck, where he is afin-ally arrived with fome other ,Grandees; but 'tis fiid they intend to go fuddenly fo joyn their King ator near Cmcmp, where the Nobility otPtlandte-pair iri great numbers to affift their Prince. I he Confederated Nobility of Lithuania is marching alfo that way, and if Prince Safieha does not make all ipoffible haft to joyn the Swedes, they may perhaps find themfelves under great difficulties' for *ant of Provisions. They write from iStickkehn, that they . are railing recruits for the Swedifli Troops in Liiit-tfia and Potanti, buttbst Meribeginrto be very fcarce, which' obliges the Otficers-ifo tife. tricks and, violence*.
