November 8. ^He King of Spain fee out fome days ago for Giaoa in his way to Sfw�, having continued here Tome da) s longer than it was expe&cd, during which he has been eorectained with Opera's an d other Diverlions. His Majefty has honoured fevera) of our Nobility with the Title of Grandees of Spain, and they are to attend him a* far as Genoa, together with Prince tfaudemont our Governour. The Spanifh and French Armies'decamped from Luzara on the 5th infbnt, and patt of the Horfe is already arrived in the Cremowzt; The Troops of the Duke of $&wf are returning home in a moft miferable condition, having loft neir one half of their Meo. The Hofpi-tals of Cremona, Mantua, Madam, Reggi� and feveral other places are full of fick Souldiers, and they tell us that they dye in great numb3rs,notwithftanding all pofGble care is taken of'em. The Prince of faudemaKt having feen his Majefty on board, will go direSJy from Genoa, to confer with the Duke of Fandome and fettle the Winter quarters of the refpeftive Troops of feoth Crowns. Prince Eugene has madefeveral detachments of his Eo�ces tofecure the Country "of Miranda!*, and (bme Ports on the Frontiers of the Modenexe forhis Winter quarters, and by an Exprefs arrived this evening, we have advice that he begun to decamp yeft?'day morning matching towards Slgifitlh on the Secma. Genoa, Nov. 13. The Ceremoniale relating to the Reception of the King of Spain, having been entirely adjufted by fome Deputies of our Senate and the Minifters of that Prince, his Majefty fet out from Milan en the 6th inftant attended by Cardinal a"E/becs, Ptince Vatdtmont, and feveral other petfons of note. Thar Prince was received and complimented on our Frontiers by 6 Deputies of the Republick, who defrayed him and all his Retinue to this place. He Iay'd at Nuwi the orh inftant, the 10th at Ojligimo, and having dined ths 1 uh at Compomaron, arrived in the evening at the Palace of the Duke of S#n Pietro in the Subburb of San Pietro cC Arena, where the Doge attended with feveral Senators, was come fome tirrie before to receive that Prince. The Doge advanced fome paces to meet him, and made him a fiiuit Complirrieatfuitab'e to the occalion, and then his Majefty having caufed him and the Senators to caver themfeJves, they went up Stairs to the Appart-ment prepared for him, the Qoge walking to his left. His Hi^hnefs made him a fcort Compliment and took bis leave,being conduced back by his Catholick Mjjslty \o bi)e door of his Anti-Chamber. Yefterday the Doge and Senators made him a ptiblick Vifit in grear folemnity, but the particulars are too long to be related here. The City being fall of Strangers by reafon of che arrival pf- that Prince, our ufual Guards arc doubled, and new ones placed in feveral places, ro prevent any dtforders, and prefer ve the pu'blick Peace. Haviurg, November 48. The-affairs of Poland continue as intricate as ever, and there are new divisions breaking out, which will prove faralto the Re pub[ick. The differences between the two po wetful Houl'os of Lubominky and Potoiki ate io much heigh-reli'd, rhat'Us feared they wil/ grow to an open Rupture, and a� the furmer is enc'nely in the Inteieftof thtf King of Poland, there is no doubt but the later will be encourag�d and fupporfed by the Swedes. We rxpeft with' the utmoft impatience, an account (jf the refolutions of the Sennus Cvifiliuvi. which was to bt held at Thorn yefterday, for 'ris believed, that they vvill come 10 fome general defefminjtrons which' Will forward the Peace betwean their" King and Swe-d$n.   * he kft advices fiorrs CrWw fay, ihit his" Swe- difb. Majefty is very w^ilrecoverecf { but that it was yet uncertain, whether that Prince intended to march to Warfatv, or continue this Winter in the Quarters, where he has cantoned his Troops. The differences between the Saxons and the City of Danhuckae not ' quite compofed, but care is taken to prevent any fur-tner Hoftilities, thai? City having allured his Poiifh Majefty of their Duty and Affection, a* far as it is con/ifient with their own Liberties and Priviledges, ,and that Prince having allured them likewife, that as he never intended in the leaft to incroach upon the , fame,he had given orders ta his Troops to avoid any  ' further quarrel, and protnifed to make good all the damage they or any othe> Country of Poland have fuftained by them. Yefterday in the afternoon came in a Holland Mail of Friday laft, with the following advices.      "> Paris, December-4. FrequentExpteffes arrive here from our AmbafTadef at Lisbon, and 'tis pubJiekly owned here, that there is a Negotiation on foot between the Allies and the King of Portugal, which is in a great forwardnefs. The laft Letters fromM*-drid talk ef it, as if it were as goe4 as concluded, and pretend tb tell us fome particulars of it, and what, advantages are granted to (hat Prince, to engage him in the Alliance sgainft this Crown, and the King of Spain. 'Tis certain, that he augments his Troops, and has given orders to fortify lome places on the Frontiers of Spain, and as thefeineafures are not concerted with us, 'tis- not are agreed upon with the Allies, tho h|^^^Ver�d with the fpecious pretence of deferidinlg?ntsOTn Territories. It was expected here, that cfa^difl^nhcmeJBt of tHe* > Allies at Cadiz, wonld have broken the neck of their Negotiation with the Couitrof Portugal, bat the affair of Pigo has given it a new Life; and the Portagutfi are too near the place where we received that fatal difgrace.to be impofed upon by our accounts^ However, as the Declaration of theKing of BorfugMlis of that importance, that the Council of Spain ieems t6y fear nothing fo much as chat, this Court makes the laft efforts to binder ir, and is long as our Mioifter is there; th$y flaCKr theq�ftl|e�^ with ftutiefyjjfin 16 prevent it. Oat Ferces^joeing'now on a'l^ifides in their Quarters, Officers ^f|^^|Kere in ^�|^riurn-befs to receive money for-tli'euv'Rediuits, imo^no* thing will be ftegledied to eompleat our new Levies, that they may be in a Condition ro take the Ftelid-next Summer, the, fatal ezpeuence of the IaftvGartopaigR, having conv^jced us of the .liecefllty of being faperi-ot, or at leaft, equal to ;riie Forces of th^.Allies. The Deelaratioa of the Ete&p'f 6f Bavariifhisnot been able to frighten thcif^itt^ti of Su*U*'ioA:prm-conla into a Neutrality, for the laft advicesfrom burg lay, that their Deputies have iignifyed to the MU nifters that Prince bad lent to their Affendflies? tfiat they were refolved to adhere to the refolutions of the Dyet pf the Empirje, and aci with all imaginable vi-yoar agaihft Frafsfa, Spain and all their Adherents. They write f/em Pcrfailles, that the King appeared very much concerned upon the arrival of an Espreis with advice, that one of his Frigots corning from Ff�8, was caftaway, withd5out 70 or 80 Officers4f tSe Squadron ef Count Chateaurenaud, aadabouc joo Seamen. As thole Officers were the Flower of ourS* Navy, tni fucb who knew beft the Coaft of the Indies, 'tis certain, that the lofs of this fingle Frigot is more considerable, than if we had loft 3 or pother as ufually manned.The laill adviceyfrom **fjr fay,th�t the Duk4 of Pahdame was repairing the Intre^chmenti the Germans had levelled at Btrgofirte, and had refas'd ro releafethe a50.men taken therein, till the French Prifoners ferit \titHangarj are returtfd.
