Daily Courant (Newspaper) - January 6, 1730, London, Middlesex The Daily Gourant. No. 88if: Tuefday, January 6y 17x9-30. Teftetday arrived tbe Mails due from France and Holland. Cadi%, December 13. N. S. ON the 10th Inftant, Publick Notice was given here, that tbe Re-gifters for loading .the GaJJeons were open ; and confequently the Merchants might fend their Goods on board as fodn as they pleafed, the faid Ships being to depart in the Month of March next. The Ship that was wanting of the Galleons laft arrived, and which firft put in at Campecby, and was afterwards refitted at the Havana, arrived here two Days ago, with a large Cargo of Cacao, Snuff, and other Commo-dities. The Regifter-Ship wanting from the Caraques is daily expected in. The Money brought by the Man of Wac the Incendio, newly arrived under the Command of Capt. Mendinueta, is carry'd into the King's Ware -houfes; but we hope the P'^t belonging to the Merchants will foon be delivered out. Before this Sh,ip came into the Bay, the Grew mutiny'd, and demanded to be paid their Wages before they arrived, under pretence that when once the Ship was in Harbour, they might wait long enough for their Money. The Captain refuting to comply with their Demand, they broke open feveral Chefts, and took as much Money out of them, as they thought their Wages'amounted to. The Captain perceiving what they had done, was fo far from {hewing the leaft Sign of Refentmenr, that he commended them for having fo much Honour as not to take more than their Pay came to ; and af-fured them he would reprefent their Conduct in the beft manner to Senhor Patinbo. The Fellows were very well content with thefe Affurances; but as foon as the Ship had dropt Anchor in the Bay, the Captain fent one of his Officers on Shoar, to acquaint our Governor with all that had pafs'd j whereupon be commanded a Detachment of Soldiers on board, and forbid any of the Sailors to ftir out of the Ship upon pain of Death. And this has been the Occafion that the Private Letters-are not yet deliver'd out. Seville, Dec. 15. N. S; The King has fent Orders to all the Officers to repair immediately to their Pofts ; and thofe who are out of the Kingdom are to return home without Lofs of Time. Repeated Orders are iffued for railing Seamen; and Commiffions are deliver'd out for enlifting Soldiers to complete every Battalion upon the foot of 700 Men, and each Squadron 150. Vienna, December 28 N. S.

Lanxinski, Minifter of Ruflia, hadtan Audience of his Imperial Majefty Ibuae Days ago, wherein he communicated the Czar his Mafter's Refolution to marry the Princefs DoJgorucki. Hildeftoeim, January 1. N. S. We are in hopes the Commiflion appointed .by the Emperor, at tbe Requeft of the Convent of Be-sedi&ins of St. Michael, upon Accoant of the Diforders feme time fince committed by the Burghers of this City, would not have taken Place, or at leaft that it might have Hanover, Jan. 4.

The King went thither likewife the next Day ; and in the Evening his Majefty, accompanied by the Lords of his Court, rode to the Caft'e of La Muette, where he cbofe King and Queen, and then returned and lay at Verfailles. Madcmoifelle de Bea^jjolois is recovered ; and the Marquis d'Arpajon, who has been very ill, is much better; On the 7th Inftant, the Laundrefs that received the.

Notwithttanding the Diligence that is ufed in getting ready the Fireworks of the Spanifh plenipotentiaries, it is thought they cannot be play'd off before the 28th Inftant.
