The 20th they loll fight of thera, bnc by the courfe they fleered, and the report of fome Officers landed at Gafcais, 'tis not doubted, but they fail for Cadiz. The Negotiations of Prince Darmjiat in this Court, have given great umbrage to the French ana Spanifh Minifters, who have complained thereo�,as of an infringement of the Treaty of Alliance between their Matters and the Crown of Portugal, and have reprefented, that the frequent Courrieis that Prince received from Spain, did not leavs room co doubt, but that he was.here to concirt fome meufures ar;ainfr the prefent King of Spain. Thole Minifters fpoke fo very big, that his Portuguifs Majefty thought fit to fend a Gentleman to deljre that Prince to quit his Dominions, at which meffige-he appeared fo difgufted, that he refufed the n�xc day to admit to his prefence another Gentleman, who was lent to him with a Jewel worth 11000 Ditch, and fix the Miners ro the Wall on the fide ofche Grand Attack, andjo we hops the Garrifuu will be obliged rj Capitulate in a very few dsys.
