Daily Courant (Newspaper) - December 29, 1730, London, Middlesex The Daily Courant. Tueftlay, December 29, 1730. Toulf Dec. 15. N. S. THE General Chapter of the. Abbey of Sr. Vanries, of the Order of St. Benedict* continues fitting here; but the Spirit of Difcord being got in among them, their Debates commonly end in Noife and Confufion; whereby this Affem-bly has acquired the Title of Latrocinium TuU lenfet or the Den of Thieves at Tou!. The Violences offer'd to the Anti-Conftitutionifts, have produced a quite contrary Effect in that Abbey, to what was expected: Several Nuns, who had not yet declared their Sentiments of the Cdnftitution, have folemnly pro-tefted againft that Papal Thunderbolt; and of 240 Monks that are in the faid Houfe, 220 have refufed to adhere to it; and moft of thofe who had fubmitted to it, have given fufficient Proof of their Concern, by declaring that they accepted the Bull in the fame Senle^ that the Church did, and that this is a forced Acceptation, which muft be look'd upon rather as a fafliionable Evafion, than as a fincere Confeflion. There is .a Pamphlet come our, upon Occasion of this General Chapter, entitled, Groans of a Soul that was frefent at the Violences Acne at Tout. Here the Bifhop is pourcray'd, and likened to King Nebuchadnezzar, faying, Adornte Jiatuam, PKorfbip abt Image. Paris, Dec. 25.-N. S. The Archbifhop of this City, has publifhed a Mandate, for collecting Alms in ail the Churches and Parifhes of his Diocefe, for the poor Sick in the Hotei-Dieu. Among other Paffages in this Mandate, there is this remarkable one, to wit, " We ,f enjoin all Deans, Canons, Chapters, Cure's, " Vicars, and Preachers, to acquaint all the " Faithful, that there is no other way where-" by they can poffibly deliver their Souls from *' Sin and Death, than by giving of Alms. " Welikewife declare, that fuch of the Faith-" ful of this good City of Paris, as (hall viht " the Church of Hotel Dieu upon the Fefti: " vals of our Saviour's Birth and Refurrection, " fay five Paternofters and five Ave-Maria's tl there, and give Alms in the faid Church, " (hall obrain the Indulgences granted by our " Holy Father the Pope in his Jubilee; and " chat fp many as fhall receive the Commu-" nion-there, fhall have Remiffion of all their " Sins, tfe. A Monk named Picpus, preached fome Days ago in the Church of his Cloifter, and fpeaking of the Blefled Virgin, faid that in her Perfon were united the Cbaftity of the Veftal Virgins, - the Beauty of Venus, the Wifdom of Pallas, and the Power of Jupiter. Some fay our Court has fent back the Pope's Bull of Jubilee, becaufe his Holinefs had inferted in it a Claufe or two that were directly contrary to the Liberties of'the Gal-lican Church. The Abbot Joubert is difcharged from the Baftile. Strict Search has been made at M. Jourlry's, Prieft of St.Jervais, who is fufpected of hav* ing a Hand in the Nouvelles Ecclefiaftiques j tut nothing was found about him. but enjoy under him a more extenfive Protection, than they had met with under his Father King Victor-A made us j for that uh-lefs he Would be pleafed to revoke the fe-vere Edicts that had been publiflied. Againft them, tbey fhould be obliged to leave his " Majefty *s Dominions." Trie King no fooner heard thefe Words^.but he interrupted the Father Provincial, and faid, " Father, Paf-ports fhall always be ready for fuch as are difpofed to be gone.'' "*. ' There is lately come out, 3 Pamphlet, en* tititled, jugement rendu far Apollon contre /* Auteur de la TrageJie de Brutus: Or, Apollo's 'Sentence agair^-tht� Authc- of rhe T./fgedy of Brutus. This Treatife is a Parody, or Bur-lefque upon the Sentence pronounced by the Commiffaries appointed to try the Caufe of Jofeph Martin, who caft the Bells for the King of Portugal. That Sentence of the Sieur Herault, Counfellor of State, and Lieutenant-General de Police, and the reft of the Commiffaries, makes a great deal of Noife here, and may be reckon'd indeed a fort of Curiofi-ty; for the Bell Founder is to reftore to the Agent of Portugual 84,565 Poufld of Copper, and 18,087 Pound of Englifh Tin, making to* gether 162,652 Pound of Metal ; as alio 2^,000 Livres, which M.

Some Days ago, the Baron de Jaquerrun, Envoy-Extradrdmary of the Duke of Lowain, had a Private Audience of the Emperor, and deli-ver'd to his Imperial Majefty a Letter front his Royal Highnefs. Tis rerorctd here, thac Prince Charles, that Duke's Brother, will make a Tour hither next Summer. We are aflured, that the Pope foliates the Emperor under-hand to get Carcinal Sch-'nborn cho-fen Coadjutor to the Archbifliopnck and Electorate of Meniz the faid Cardinal having^ while he was at Rome, left the Decifion ot the Difference between him and his Chapter of Spiers entirely to his Holinefs. Some Advices from Conftantinople remark, that the People there who get their Living by Writing and Copying, made a ftrange Murmuring and Clamour againft the Printing-Prefs lately erected there; alledging that it had already very much hurt them, and would bring rhenl to Beggary. They add, that there are nd lefs than 6o,c,oo of.thofe,Writers in Conftan* - tinbple.
