They add, that the Grand Seignior having fent a Minifter to Prince Thamas, offering to acknowledge him in the Quality of King of Perfia, provided he would confirm the>) CefEon of the Provinces made to the Porte by Sultan Efreff j that Prince anfaet'd him, That Sultan EfrefF being a Rebel and an Ufurper, he could not come into any Treaty made by him to the Prejudice of the Kingdom of Perfia. Petersburg, June i0. N. S. Ten Fregates are lately failed from this Parr, laden with fundry forts of Merchandizes for different Places. Among the reft, there are three la- . den with Cannon, Ball, and other Ammunition, for Spain. The General Count Munich, "-Admiral Sievers, and other Lords of the Admiralty, returned hither on Monday laft from Cronflot. Several. Men of War, and Fregates are fitting out in that Port, here and at ReveJ 5 but as they are to be vi&uai'd -but for two Months, 'tis believed they are defign'd only to exercife the Seamen. Prince Gregory Alextowitz tJrnflbw, Major General, will fet oat next Week for Mofcow, to take Poffeflion of the Office of Senator., which the Czarina has lately conferred upon him. Dant^tcli, June 11. N S. On the 18th Inftant, an Exprefs from Mofcow went thro* this Place, with Difpatches for the Duke of Mecklemburg. Our laft Letters from Mit-rau and Riga do not make the leaft Mention of the March of any Ruffian Troops, who continue very quiet in their Quarters. Some Grandees of Poland have lately had feveral Conferences in the Convent of Oli-va, to confider of proper Materials for the next General Dyet of the Kingdom to go to work upon.

N. S. Two Days ago, an Officer came hither from the Duke of Mecklemburg at Swerin, to view the A-partmems of chat Duke's Palace here; which makes us believe he defigns to come and rake up bis Refideace among as; and this is the more probable, becaufe according to our laft Advices from Mecklemburg, his Htghnefs was in a manner block'd up in his Cattle of Swerin, fince, upon the xzd Inftanr, 60 Soldiers that he had pofted near Brandfchau with two Pieces of Cannon, to guard that Pafs, were obliged by the Troops of Execution to retire, to Swerin, after a {lender Refiftaftce, in which one of tbofe Soldiers was kill'd. Thefe Letters add, that the Troops' of Execution, after having taken Pc�f-Gan of the faid Poft of Brandfchau, firuare upon tbe River Srobr, had like wife poflefs'd them-felves of all the other PaiTes leading to Swerin ; that upon the 23d, the Burgomafter of Crivirz march'd out with feveral Burghers, to make Head agaihft the Troops of Execution, with above 409 armed Peafanrs ; but that upon their Approach, the Peafants took to their Heels, and the Burgomafter and feveral of the Burghers were taken Prifoners, and fent back after they bad been a little roughly handled. That the Governor of the Fort of Warnemund had received Orders from the Subdelegated Commiffioners to keep & watchful Eye upon ail Ships coming from the Ports of Rulfia, or elfewhere, to hinder their landing any Forces; and that 300 Peafants were commanded to patrol along rhe Coaft for the fame porpofe. It is written from Hanover, that the Exprefs fent to London to carry rhe News of rhe Duke of Mecklemburg's Arrival, returned thither the i|d, with Orders to reinforce the Troops of Execution, fo that they may be ab|e effectually to block up the Fbrtreffes of Domirz; and Swerin; and that a Council of War was held the fame Day, to fettle the Number of Troops to be fent into the Dutchy of Mecklemburg accordingly. Bremen, Junt 28. N. S. We have celebrated here the Second Jubilee, in Memory of the Delivering of the Augsburg Owfef-fion, with tbe greacert Zeal and Joy, for 3 Days fucceifively. Tbe Illuminations in tbe Evenings were very fine. On tbe Cathedral Tower were reprefenred Truth and her Supporters the faithful Church of God, having tbe Royal Cathedral Cburcb between them. Truth fat upon tbe R-ghc Hand, in the Shape of a fine young Man, with his Head furrounded with Kays of the Sun, holding in bis Left Hand a Palm of an O-live Branch, and in his Right Hand an open Book, with the Word Bibha, and ibis Inscription out of Pfalm xix. 8. Ibe Statutes of tbe Lord are right, &c. On the Left Hand, the faithful Church of God, reprefenred by a Woman, fitting upon a Footftool, cloatned in a blue Garment fpangied with Surs. a flaming Heart in her Breaft : in ber Right Hand the Chalice and Bread, with a Crofs ; becaufe (1 Tim. iii. 15) the Church of the living God is called the Pillar and Ground of tbe Truth, in the World indetd cf no outward IlgfpcS, hut her Converfation is in Heaven, (Phil. iii. 3,0.) not only fanciifying God in her Heart, (1 Pet.; hut Ul^wife /hewing by out. vtardTokpr.s, that 'Jhe belonged to Cbnft : In her Left Hand fhe has an open Book, with' thefe Words, jCONFESSJO AVGVSTANA, as much as to lay, that by delivering tbe Confetfion to the Emperor Charles V. ac the Dyec held at Augsburg the 25th of June 153c, flie openly confefs'd tbe Word of Truth, with this Infcription out of Pfalm cxix: 99.
