THE Pope has made a Pre'fent of bis delightful Palace and Gardens without the Gate of St. Pancrario, to his Nephew Prince Don Bar-tholomeo Corfini; and all the fine Furniture of his otbet Palace in the Plain of Nayona, to his Nephew Don Nerio Corfini'; and has equally divided bis Patrimonial Eftate between them. The Marquis del Bufulo is made one of his Hoiinefs's Gentlemenr .upon Condition that he ftiall pay what is due from him to the Apoftolick Chamber. When the 2viagiftrates of this City waited upon the Old Pontiff in a Body, to know in what Form he would be pleafed to receive their Homage ; he anfwer'd them, that be would not beTerved with the Pomp that Innocent XI. required of them, becaufe he was a Roman Prince; nor with the (lender Refpecl: paid to Benedict XIII. becaufe his Humility was fuch, that he obferved no Decorum ; but that he would be content they fhould perform their Homage 10 him in the fame man-ner as was done to Innocent XII. On Sun-day in the Afternoon, a Letter was fent from the Secretary's Office to Cardinal Cibo, to let him know that the Pope had conferr'd she Grand Priory^of Rome upon him, which |s worth 8000 Crowns a Year, provided that he fhall pay zooo Crowns a Year out of it to the Commander Santini, who was nominated to it by the Great Mafter's Commander during the Vacancy of "the See; but *ds thought that Gentleman will not accept of the Penfion defign'd him. We hear that Cardinal Rjiffo, who is at Frafcati, has com-plain'd of the Rigours ufed againft the Bene-ventines. This Week the Pope (Wit feveral Baskets of Sweetmeats, &c. to the Hofpirals of this "City, to refrefh the Sick.

On Monday laft, two Expreffes arrived here from Rome; one of which proceeded immediately for France ; and the other took a Veffel for Antibes, whence he will go by Land to the Court of Spain. Florence, Aug. 5. N. S. Cardinal Borro-meo arrived hefe the 3rft paft from Rome, and fet out again the next Day for Milan. The Imperial Colonel Baron de Molck (who was not long ago fent hither by the Governor of Milan, to demand of the Great, Duke an exprefs Declaration, whether in cafe the Fleet of the Allies of Seville fhould appear upon our Coafts, he would admit the fame into his Harbours, and the Spanifh Troops into Leghorn or Porto Ferraio ; or, whether he was inclined to keep them off with his own Forces, Or to employ Auxiliaries) is come a fecond time from Milan, with a new, bat much .fofrcr Commifllon, whereby he offers in very obliging Terms (retracting, as it were, his former Demand of a pofirive Declaration) a fufl&cienr. Body of Troops, if hisRoyal Higbneis fhourd haveOccafion for them. The laid Colonel has fince had feveral Conferences with our Secretary at War the Marquis Rinuccini, and will fhortly return to Milan. . Leghorn, Aug� 5. N. S.

The Count de Bo-lagnos, Ambaffador of the Emperor, is arrived here from Venice about his Private Affairs, as it is given out; for which, they fay, he has obtain'd Leave of the Court of Vienna for two Months. One of the two Princes of Wirtemberg, that are in the Imperial Army in Italy, is to command at Cremona, and the other at Mantua. The Troops, which lie difperfed in their different Quarters, are to hold themfelves in a continual Readinefs to march upon the firft Notice j and 700,0-0 Rations of Bisket are baked for them at Pa-via, Lodi, and Cremona. The Baron de Molck is daily expe&ed here from Tufcany, the Great Duke whereof refufes (as we are told; to receive any Foreign Troops into-his Dominions, whether they come as Friends, or as Enemies. Mean while, a Conference has been held here, to confider, whether, honvitbftandii^j the Order of the. Court of Vienna, not to fend any Troops to the Frontiers of any Prince without the utmoft Ne-ceffity, a Detachment of our Forces ought not to be fent toward the Sea Coaft, it being certain that the Spaniards will undertake a Defcent either at Vado, Specia, or Leghorn : And an Exprefs is gone to Vienna, to know the Emperor's Sentiments of this Matter. Bologna, Aug. 8. N. S. On Thurfday laft, in the Evening, Cardinal Borromeo arriv'd here from Rome, and on Friday Morning he proceeded for Milan.

A German Officer was arriv'd at that Court, to demand (as it is reported) a certain Tract of Land upon his Borders, for �a Camp of Part of the Imperial Troops; upon which the Duke bad fent for the Governor of PJacentia, to hear, what he had to fay to it. In the mean while, that Officer had given the Court to underftand, that the General Count Merci would not fend any Troops that way, till he had re-ceiv'd the Emperor's pofitive Ord�r fo to do, by a Courier he had fenr to Vienna upon that Occafion.

Our laft Letters from Turkey advife, that the late Count de Bonneval (now named Ibrahim.) refides at Conftantinople, but is employ'd in nothing of Importance. This Week 6 of our Ships arrived here from Zante, Cepbalonia, Santa Maura, and Corfu, with Advice that the San Gaetano, a Firft Rate Man of War, was put into.
