They write Irom Madrid that the Queen appears very much concerned, and that it was difcoutfed there, that feveral Grandees had privately quitted their Country Seats to joyn the Englilb and Dutch as it was fear'd.   Cardinal Per. '-tecarrtro is very bafy in louring up the Qargy agatrifr , the Emperor, and made a Speech, in the Council, wherein, after having propofed feveral expedients to raife a fufficienr force to bppoie'the Enemy, he conclijde4,thaf this.was the caufe of �od, and tbat it wasjiot to be doub'ed Bur the Emperor defighed the fubverliprj:,*oF the Roman '� Church,   feeing he had . introd.Uf^d an Army .'of Hereticks into a Catholick.Country., ^hcy have takeV all poflibie ear* to fuppreis the -Declaration gu'bliflied  by the Duke of Ormmd; but the Houfe of A-^ria has not been wanting of Friends who have difperled the fame.

To morrow the Earl o? Marlborough go,e$ XoMftfintht, toviiitthe Fortifications of tbar place, and General Dopft is gone thither to receive his Excellency. The Freach defign to fortify Tongertn, $t 7m and HaJJeL,-for^ the fecurity; of''..'their Wiritelr Quartern ; and we have advice from Liege, tb� they work very hard on, the Fortifications of that piece, and make large Vaults or Caverns under Ground,.

The news w& have^e-ceived from Franfeof the failing cf the Spanilh Silver Fleet,5 under the Command of Monfieur Ghateaiarenaud, makes our Merchants very uneafie; but rhey have been lb often deceived by accounts-of this- nature, that moft won't believe it at this.. time, or at leaft feem very confident,-that that Fleet is not fo rich as they give out-, and that the Merchants in the Weft Indiet, who were at firft fo jealous of the French, as to refufe to trulr/tKeir' Ships under their Convoy, have'fent but part bf theit efrefts. The next Letters from Paris ar� impatiently eXptcYed, for if they do not bring certain advice, that the Spsnifh Fleet is arrived upm theirCoafts or in their Harbours, .we may conclude.rhat what they rell usin the laft Letters is altogether falie.
