His Electoral Highnefs is recovered of his late Iadifpofition, and vifics the Quarters of his Forces, and has given out new Commiffions to augment them, Ths French continue the Fortifications of Uewenhurg on the Rhine, and give out, that in the beginning of the .Spring their Army will pafi the Rhine to joyn ch� Bgvarians. They have Again feized upon the Dutcky ofLorrain, and puc a Gairifbn in the Town of N*hcj, which they defign to*fbrtifis again, fame of their chief Ingineers having already marked out the Works they intend to make to that place. The Dyet of the Empire have refolved to enter into the Grand Alliance whh England and Holland, and are coacertipg flfeper mcafures to bring into th* Field the numerow Forces, with which they have relolved to actagainft France.^ The Emperor having defired Prince Lt'mt of Baden's opinion about the intended inva/ion of the Electorate of Bavaria, We bear hif Hijjhnefs has written to his Imperial .Majefty on that fulrject, and that he approves the Project" laid bjforetke Emperors Council by General Schlick. The Troops of Htjfe Caftil, the Palatines andlmperialifb quartered in the Hondfrug, continue to extend themfilves aJong the Mtzelle. Their Partiei ha%e daily advantageom rencounters with the French who give ground be/ore th*m, and 'tis not doubted tut they will Qiortly attack' Xwrbach.

Ddtftldorp, December 16. The Elector Palatine as Generaliffimc of all the Forses that are to act on th- Lower Rhine, has futnmoned all the General Officers to affift at a gieie Council of War, which his met ieveral times, bur we don'c know what telb-lutions weie taken therein. His Electoral High* nefs makes prefling inftances for the Siege of Bonn, and efpecially (ince thev have dtfeovored by fome intercepted Lersrs from the French Governor to Count Talla-.d, that he wants many neceiTaties for a vigorous defence, and that his Garrifon being not above ;oao men (hong, that aumber is not fuffictenc for defending that place, and the Fort built ever a-gain/r ir on th� orher lideef ihe Rhine. The Confe derate Troops quartered abcuc that place, are lb watchful, that the French can receive no manner of ftipplisj. The Elector of Coh%vh\. cauled"a Mani-fefto to be pablifhid in that Electorate, againft the proceedings of the Chapter of CoUgtt; but the Corn-miffioner of fciblmpeiiai Majefty lias published a fe-co.id PJicaetr, forbidding to acknowledge th� Authority of tkit EleSvor, or of his wicked Councellor, "jihn Frederick kirrig, who a�Tumej the Title of Admi-' eiltrato'of the Electors, by virtue of a pretended Cmmiffim from his Maftir, They are likewife difebatged of their Oath ef luUeliCi*, and Commanded ro obey the Chapter, to vn hom the Emperor has given. 5a* AJasiniitmioR and Reg.cr.cy ef the f*id Electorate.

Paris, Decmb. 16. The reporc we had fornetime ago of a Negotiation cf the Pope and Venetians for obtaining a ceffatien of Arm* in Italy, is confirmed by Letteisfrom Madrid, Rome and Venice, and we are told the Nuntio has prepofed the fame to the King, but that hispropofal was rejected, our Court flattering themfelves with the 'hopes of driving the Germans out of Italy next Campaign. The diverfion the Elector of Bavaria is likely to give to theFoices of the Empire, being very advantageous to us, they neglect nothing here to encourage that Prince, and Count Mtnaflerolle his Envoy was allured by huMa/efty upon his departure,that he would not only take care to remit the fubfidies promifed to him,' but alfo that his Forces would early in the Spring take the Field, to joyn ihofe ef his Majter, or at leaft give fuch diver-tion to the Imperialists and Circles, that they fliould not be abls to invade Bavaria. Our lait advices from half fry, that the Duke of randoms has taken the Poll of Son Benedetto, wherein the Germans had 80 men, f o that the Enemy has no place on this fide the SeccJti* but oely Btrzslh, which they hope to be Mailers of in a (hort time, th? Garrifon being very clofely blocked up.

The Marefchal "of Catinai is to command in Lmain, notwithfUnding he has dellred to b� excufed from any further fervice, his Majefty h'aviag not accepted of his excufes.

After the Firework was over, ther� was a great Collation in the Chamber of 5rrv�, where among other Curiofities were feen 7 .ftrAwrVfr of Fruity fo 'artfully coritrivedt that they exactly re-prefenred the Plan of Kt^^^'^ft^t-^iinmuk, the Cittadel of Leige, St ittvitifmstrt, Sttckhtm, and Fort St Dentis.
