Venice, October 21. e Armies near Luzara are preparing to march into their Winter quartets, it being impoflibre for them to continue much longer in their Camps. The French are making great Magazines in the Modeneze, and the Germans have perfected their Bridge between Ojiiglia and Revere, where a great number of Boats have brought a vaft quantity of Pla lies and other Timber for building Barracks and Stables in the Dutchyof Mirandola, where they in tend to quarter as many Troops as they can. The French bav s>iven over their defign of Befigeing Bcr-ojtllo, out they talk of Bombarding that place, and block it up all the Winter, in hopes that the Gar-lifon will be obliged to furtender by the beginning of the Spring. The French have made feme Pro-pofals to the Duke ofModen*, but that Prince has rejected them, as injurious to his Honour, and notwithstanding he is threatned to have all his Revenues feized, they have not been able to perfwade him to comply with tbeifyTerms. Our Letters from Rome fay, chat the Pope has abfolutely refufed to give quarters to the Imperialists, but has ordered the Legates of Ferrar* and Bolonta to give them leave to buy in their Governments' whatsoever they fhall have OEcadon for, and our Republick will do the like. The weather begins to be fo Stormy that 'tis thougkt the French Frigdts will fhortly quit ouf>Gulph.Thofe Frigors have done a great deal of mifebref to the Emperors Subjects on the Coaft ofTJlria, and deftroyed a great number of Boats and Small Ships, but they have not been able to hinder the Transportation of a vaft quantity of Provifions to Mezola, from whence they are Sent up by the Po to the Imperial Army. Vienna, October ar. The King of the Romans is fuddenly expected back from the Rhine, and part of hit Equipage is already arrived. The Declaration of the Elector of Bavaria is the Subject matter of the cooSultation? of this Court, who, as we are told, has refolded to make the utmoft efforts to reduce that Prince this Winter, and we hear Several Regiments are marching towards the Frontiers of that Electorate to make an in^sllon therein. The aftonifh-ing conduct of that Prince makes us long more than ever for the pacification of the troubles in the North, and our Minifters are ordered to redouble their instances on that affair, for if that fo much defired Peace is concluded, the Emperor will have a luffi-cient number of Troops ready to act againft the E-]ector of Bavurit, and oblige him to depart from the Intereft of France, before the French can give him any afliftmce. An Exprefs from Breflau has brought advice,that the King of Sweden reviewing fomeTroops on the iftinftant, had the misfortune to fall with his Horfe, and had one of his Thighs very much Bruifed, which occafioned a report that it wajbroke, and even that he was dead, but he was So well a-gain the uththat he broke up from Cracow, being carrved in a Litter, and took his march towards IVsrfaio. There is no certain account of the arrival of the Deputies of the Republick of Poland, and fome Letters fay, that the King of Sweden has declared, that feeing the Forces of the Republick had fought with the Saxons againft him, he could not look upon Pnhnd as. a Party unconcerned, and therefore could not accept her Mediation. This advice is contradicted by fome others.which tell us that his Swedifli Majtfly has accepted the fame, and feem confident that the Peace "will befpeedi'y concluded. Cokgat October 31. The French Troops under the Command of Count TaSard, grow very numerous noon the ytojellt, and feem to have 3 delipn unon Rhinfiic aad Traerbacb ; whs-reurinn feveral Expr-f-s are feat to Prince .Uvis of Safes, the Lsnoiynve of Hefe Cajfd and Holland. They have actually put*a Ga/-rilon into Trysrs, and demand great Contributions of the Country called Hondfrug. The Elector Palatine is railing 4 new Regiments, and we heir the Landgrave ofHejfi Cajfel is likewife making feme new Levies. Letters from the Vpper Rhine fay, tiiat the French are repairing the Rhine near Htaminghtn', eppn advice, that Genera 1 Thungen and Count Styrum had joyned Prince Levis of Baden with afooc men. The Seafori of the year being too hard for the Troops, to be in the Field, we hear thofe of the Confederates that are incamped near Broel, between this place and Bonn, will quickly march into their Winter Quarters. The Bifhop of Raab has fent ah Exprefs to Vienna, about the affairs of this Archbifhoprick, which are likely to be in great confufion, as long as the French are mafters of Bom. Tig confirmed; that that Bifhop is to be declared Coadjutor of our Elector, and have the Administration of the Revenue belonging to the Electoral Dignity, which will be hardly enough to fatisfy the demands of the King of PtuJJia, the Elector Palatine, and fome others, who pretend, thai rhe fame ought to be employed in making good the damages their Subjects have fufhined from the. French. , , Paris, October 30. The news of the taking of the Cittadel of Liege by Storm, has caufed here ah un-, fpeakable Surprize, and indeed itfeems hardly credible that 4000 men fhould thus Jofe a ftrong place in 4 days after the opening of the Trendies. Ler-ters from our Army under the Marefchal of Bouffiert fay, that the Allies had not 206 men killed in that Action, ard that the Troops concerned in theattacfc � were not f� numerous as the Garrifon. After the lofs of that Poft, we hourly expect to hear that the Chartreuse is furrendred upon Articles, which, Monfieut Violaine mould, have done, to fpare his Troops, and fave the Honour of the Kings Arms, which have received a great difgrace on that occafi-on. The Marefchal of Bouffers is ordered to reinforce the Garrifon of Huy, which will prove very Serviceable for protecting the Country pf Uamur, and part of the Dutchy of Luxemburg. As rbete .'is no doubt but the Confederate Army will Soon mat cf* iato their. Winter Quarters, Monfieur de Bouffieri received the Kings orders for difpofing his Forces in fuch places as may be molt convenient for Securing rhe Spanim Provinces. Frequent ExpiefTes arrive here from Italy, about the Winter Quarters of our Forces under the Duke of Vandome, for the Generals are of a different opinion concerning the fame, and. they will find it very difficult to keep the Modem i-: this Winter, as they intend to do. notwithstanding the Lines they are cafting up for the Security of iheir Quarters, which are likely to be daily disturbed by the excurSions of the Germans. Our Letters from Spain and Portugal make no mention of the Confede-nte Fleer, Since they were Seen off of Lisbon, and". they long at Court to hear of their arrival in the Ports of England ; for the retreat of the Admirante of Cajltle and Some other Noblemen, make them feat that they may have fome othet deiign in view. Hague, November 5. General Schlick is daily expected here from Germany, to confer with the Earl of Marltborough and other Generals about the difpo-iition of the Troops this Winter, and the operations pf the next Campaign, which will begin very early in the Spring. Tis certain, that the States have re-Solved to augment their Forces both by Sea and Land, and they have already agreed for Several Regiments with Some Prince* of the Empi t. They write from Brujfils, .hat a Commi lary is fent to Liege, to pay tre ranfom ofSeveiai Officers taken in '.he Cirtatlel of that place.
