Daily Courant (Newspaper) - June 10, 1730, London, Middlesex The Daily Courant. N� 8945-. Wednefday, Jiine 10, 1730. Tefierday arrived the Mail due from Holland. Naples, May 23. N. S. SEveral more Tartanes are lately arrived here from Fiume, with Recruits which have been fent to their refpec-tive Corps. Ail is quiet, as well in this Capital, as in the other Towns of the Kingdom ; and the Viceroy has taken fuch Care on all fides, that we have nothing to fear at home or abroad. His Excellency has caufed all the Highways to be repaired, for the more commodious Carriage of the Artillery from one Place to another, as he fhall chink proper. General WaQis will fet out for Sicily in a few Days. ]{pmc, May 27. N. 5. The Affairs of the Conclave remain much as they were. It feems, the Perfons hitherto propofed, are not thofe they really defign to choofe. As the Cardinals that are in the fecret of thecrown'd Heads, conceal with all poffible Care the Names of thofe they are ordered to exclude from the Chair, each Party is as cautious to prevent the Difcovery of the Perfon they have a mind to raife to the Pontificate, and will not propofe him till he has fo well laid his Scheme, that it can hardly fail of fuc-ceeding: For afrer a crown'd Head has once put the Negative upon any Cardinal, it is very difficulc, not to fay impoifible, to go back. Some Days ago, there was an Affem-bly in Cardinal Cienfuegos's Cell, at which were prefent the Cardinals Sinzendorff, George Spinola, and the Cardinal Camerlengo; who a-greed upon a Perfon co-be chofen Pope, and lent away an Exprefs to acquaint the Em-peror with their Intention; and therefore 'tis believed the Election will foon be over after the Return of that Exprefs. 'Tis the general Opinion, (hat thelmperial Faction have (till an Eye upon Cardinal Ruffo or Car* dinal Col on n a ; and that Cardinal Barbe-rini is forming a Party in favour of Cardinal Borromeo, tho' there is good ground to believe this laft would meet with an Exclusion on the Part of France, On Sunday, Cardinal Caraccioli paid a Vifit to the Dutchefs de Soriano Albani, Niece to the late Pope Clement XI. who created him a Cardinal j and the next Day he went into the Conclave. There runsii Report, that immediately afcer the Ele&ion of a Pope, Cardinal Aleffandro Albani will be declared by the King of Sardinia, Protector of that Crown, with a Penfion of 5000 Crowns a Year, befides the rich Abbey of Stafarde; and that the faid Prince has already fent him a Remittance of 15,000 Crowns. The Heads of Orders have received Letters from the Portuguese Cardinals, thanking the Sacred College for their Care in invicing them to the Conclave, and affining them, that if they fhould take the Refolution to come, their Eminencies fhall have due Notice of it. Other Advices from Lisbon fay, the King of Portugal having a Defign to bring Water from a neighbouring Mountain to that City, for the Accommodation of* its Inhabitants, his Majefty had re-folved to lay a Tax upon the Clergy of bis Kingdom, to contribute towards the Charge of that Work: But they add, that the Patriarch of Lisbon had prevail'd with his Majefty to fufpend that Refolution, fo repug- nant to the Pontifical Authority, till after the Election of a Pope. Father Pereti, a Monk of the Order of Obfervantines, is nominated by the Emperor to the Bifhoprick of Salerno. The Sacred College have fent to Norcia, Timber and other Materials to build Barracks for lodging the Inhabitants of that deplorable Town : They have moreover fent 8000 Crowns, that were collected here, to be diftributed among the Pooreft of them. The Effects taken from Signor Santa Maria, and fecured in Ca'ftle St. Angelo, have been reftored him by Order of the|Sacred College. Vienna, June 3. N. S. On the iftlnftant, there was a great Conference ac Prince Eugene of Savoy's, at which all the Emperor's Minifters and Heads of Colleges affifted. The Caufe of their Meeting was to confider of the prefent Situation of Affairs j but we cannot learn any thing of the Refolutions they took. Mean while, there is more Talk than ever of an approaching Rupture in Italy ; tho' 'ris certain this Court is fincerely defirous of avoiding it. The Allies of Seville appear to be in the fame Difpofition  bat as all the Propofals hitherto made, are grounded upon the Introduction of Spanifh Troops into the Places of Tufcany and Parma, there is little or no Probability of concluding an Accommodation upon thofe Terms. However, the Earl of Waldegrave's Continuance here, after he was to have gone for London, makes Men ftill flatter themfelves, that fome Expedient will be found for preventing a War. The Field-Marfhal Count Merci, who is nominated to command in Chief the Imperial Troops in Italy, will fee out in five or fix Days, and the other Generals will follow him very fpeedily; but' they are firft to receive four Months Pay Advance. Thofe Generals are the Princes of Wirtemberg and Hohenzollern, M. Veterani, Philip-pi, Paderborn, Bettendorf, Kevenhuflcr, Ketler, and Sehmettau, Quarter-Mafter-General. Count Maximilian of Staremberg is to command the Imperial Troops in the Kingdom of Naples; and the Duke of Wirtemberg thofe upon the Rhine, if an Army be form'd there. We are afTured, , the States of Lower Auftria, Moravia, and Bohemia have ordered Provifion* to be got ready to fupply the nine Imperial Regiments on their March.from Hungary to the Rhine. The Field Marfhal Zumjungen is. to command in Chief in the Netherlands. Prince Alexander of Wirtemberg, who is upon the Road- to Belgrade, is ordered to make a ftri& Enquiry into the State of the kingdom, that according to the Report, he fhall make, this Court may be able to judge whether it is fafe to draw any more Troops from Hungary to march to Italy. We are getting ready a vaft Quantity of Powder, Ball, and other Ammunition, to be fent to Belgrade ; and 'tis written from the Frontiers, that the Turks have lately fent a great Number of heavy Cannon, Mortars, Car-caffes, t$c. to Nifla and Widdin. The Emperor having lent feveral Casks of excellent Tockay Wine to the Camp acMuhlberg, as a Prefent to the King.of Poland, that Prince has written a. Letter of Thanks to bis Imperial Majefty w^fh his,own Bfand, affuring him at the fame time, that the Saxon Troops which he keens', in' Readinefefor his Imperial Majefty's Service, fhall begin their March, whenever he pleafes. From the Camp at Muhlberg, June4. N. S. The Day the General Review was made,: the King of Poland finding himfelf a little fatigued, be defired the Electoral Princefs of Saxony to entertain the Company, which her Highnefs perform'd admirably well. The Repaft was under a i jrkifh Tenr, at 4 Table of 40 Difhes, ^ ferved in gilt Plate, The next Day, being the 2d Inftant, was a Day of Reft. The two Kings dined together at the King of Poland's Head Quarters, with the two Palatines Oginski, the Generals Seckendorf, Grumbkow, DenhofT, Truchfes, and feveral other Lords. They, did not rife from Table till Six o'Clock ; after which, there was an Italian Comedy; but their Majefties were not at it. Yefter-dayatFour in the Morning, the Dragoons marched in Columns, and performed then: Exercife with Variety of Evolutions, which jafted till two in the Afternoon. The King; of Pruffia went with feveral Generals to dine at Duke John-Adolphus de Weiflenfels. The Prince-Royal of Pruifia dined with the King; of Poland and the Ladies There is no End of admiring the Magnificence of this Campv Several who faw that of Compiegne, in the Reign of Lewis XlV. fay it was not to be compared to this. As the Elector of Bavaria and the Princes his Brothers cannot come to the Camp, General Morowerski is arrived here on the Part of his Electoral Highnefs,to fee all that paffes, and give his Mafteran Account.
