The Count de Collalto, Ambaffadorof his Imperial Ma-jefty, is likewife gone thro' for Rome. Lucern, April 6. N. S. It is ftill reported, that fome Tboufands of Imperialifts are to march thro* the Country of the Grifons; but this is not certain. Several Engineers are actually arrived in Sicily, to put all the For-trefles of that Kingdom into a good Pofture of Defence; and the Viceroy lofes no Time in providing the Magazines with Stores of Ammunition and Provifions, to enable him to make a good Defence in cafe he fhould be attack'd. Vienna, April 1. N. S. We flatter our-felves here, that we fhall foon receive Advice of the new Czarina's taking the Sovereignty upon her in the fame manner as it was excrcifed by Peter I. and Peter II. 'Tis faid that M. Razeberg, Captain of the Horfe, had the greateft Share in the Diforders committed upon the Road to Italy ; and that he will be firft caii'd to Account for the fame. The March of the Second Detachment is not a little impeded by the great Rains, and the Floods consequent thereto. In Upper Auftria there fell fo haftily a Shower, that the Danube fwtll'd almoft as high as laft Year, and put the People into a terrible Confternation.

The Imperial Chamber are very much furprized to hear, that the Elector of Mentz has laid an Embargo upon a Quantity of Meal that was falling down the Rhine, in order to be laid up in the Magazines of Luxemburg: But whether this was done by that Elector's Subjects, who claim a Debt of 300,000 Florins fiom the Imperial Court, without his Knowledge j or how elfe it hap-pen'd, we cannot fay. Be it as it will, we do not doubt but thofe Goods will be fuf-fer'd to pafs, as foon as Matters are clear'd up, upon the Count de Kufftein's.Arrival at Mentz. It was given out, that the Imperial Courier Mortagne arriv'd from Spain about a Week ago j but there was no fuch thing, he being come no nearer than Pans with the Dilpatches he brought from Seville j and ibere (Paris; finding a Gentleman of Count Kinski's jult ready to mount Exprefs for this Court, hedeiiver'd his Dil* matches to him^. for the greater Expedition. The Contents of thofe Difpatches are by no neans agreeable here, the King of Spain re* mainirtg inflexible upon the Article of the Execution of the Treaty of Seville, in what concerns the Introduction of his Son Dori Carlos into Italy with the Spanifh Troops i Wherefore Orders are fent to haften the March of the Detachment that is now upon the Route to that Country. 1 Rjtisbon, April 6. N. S. Within thefe few Days the Danube has fwell'd Co high, that it overflow'd its Banks, and got into the Town. Several Expreffes have lately gone thro' this Place for Vienna, from the Nether* knds and Portugal. The Envoys of the Dyet have fent the Emperor's Commifforial Decree concerning the Treaty of Seville, to their refpective Principals, to have their In-ftructions how to proceed. Meanwhile, 'tis not expected that this Affair will be brought upon the Carpet fo fpeedily as fome People imagine, the prefent Juncture calling aloud upon feveral Stares of the Empire to be eir-cumfpect, and take care how they vote in fo delicate a Queftion. This being the Two Hundredth Year fine* the Confeliion of Augsburg was authorized by the Dyet of the Empire, the Lutherans of all Countries defign to celebrate ; Jubilee upon that Account the 25th of June next, We bear the Electrefj Dowager of Bavaria has left Jewels and cither Riches behind her. :o the Value of Si* Millions of Florins.
