IAST Week the Collateral Council held an extraordinary AiTembly with the Board of Treafury, wherein the Viceroy was prefent, to deliver a Petition he had received by an Exprefs from the Emperor, requefting an extraordinary Subfidy of 100,000 Ducats, to anfwer the preifing Occafions of the Government at this Critical Juncture; but nothing was done in that Affair. On Tuefday died here Don Carlo di Capua, only furviving Son of the Prince delta Riccia. Our Men of War the St. Leopold and St. Charles are victuai'd for -fix Months, and a good Number of Tar-tanes are hired to go to Fiume and Triefte, to bring over Recruits for the German Regiments in this Kingdom and Sicily. I\ome, Feb. 18. N. S On Saturday Morning the Pope held a Publick Confiftory in the Ducal Hsll, wherein he gave the Cap to the r.ew Cardinal Salviati, who firft vifited tlie Church of Sr. Peter, and afterwards the Cardinal Vice-Dean Barberini, and the Dutchefs de Gravina. The fame Day be. gan the,Diverfions of the Carnaval j but the Appearance was very (lender, by reafon of the continual Rifenefs of Colds and Fevers, whereby abundance of Perfons of the firft Rank are confined to their Beds, and among them the Cardinals Pipia, del Giudice, Que-rini, Porzia, Polignac, and Caraffa ; together with feveral Prelates, Princes, and PrincefTes. On Sunday Morning, his Ho-linefs confecrared Signor RufFo, a Benedictine Monk, Bifliop of Gierace in the Kingdom of Naples. As foon as Signor' Otto-boni was made Bifliop of Pedua, he refign'd the Abbey of Imok, which brings in 1500 Crowns a Year, and was given to Cardinal Lercari, Secretary of State, who is to pay the Cardinals Corradini and Olivieri 300 Crowns a Year each. Cardinal Cibo has the late Cardinal Barbarigo's Abbey, Signor Rezzonico that of the Holy Trinity at Verona, and Cardinal Octoboni that of St. Zen, which laft is worth 4000 Crowns a Year. On Monday Morning died Cardinal Anfidei, aged 85 ; and 'tis faid his Cap will be given to Signor Sonnino Colonna. His vacant Bifhoprick of Perugia is. already idifpofed of, in favour of Signor Leduli, a Dominican Fryar. Milan, Feb. 18. N. S. The Sicknefs is more rife here than ever; our Governor's Lady and tnoft of her Attendants being laid up with ir, and fix of our principal Pbyficians, which is a very lamentable Circumftance. And therefore our Archbifliop has ordered fd-lemn Prayers and Proceffions, to implore the Almighty to ceafe his Wrath, and take away this Scourge from us. Bologna, Feb. 21. N. S. The Sicknefs is fomewhat abated here j but abundance of People died in the open Country of JLomba.r-dy, and efpecially at Parma, where the Duke has defired the Bifliop to expofe the Hoft in the principal Churches, tnd alfo to (hew the People the Head of St. Bernard. Venice, Feb. 24. N. S. This Day at Noon arrived here an Exprefs from Rome, with Advice, that Pope Benedict XIII. departed this Life on Tuefday laft, at Four o'clock in the Afternoon. Vienna, Feb. 15. N. S. The fecond De-racbmentof Imperial Troops, which is to follow the other to Italy, will confift of 19 Battalions of 700 Men each, for the moft parcqua'rtered in Hungary, making together 13,300 Men. Yefteiday the Exprefs lately arrived, from Count . Sinzendorf, his Imperial Majefty's Envoy-Extraordinary at the Hague, was fent back thither. Capt. Crembfier is returned hither from the Empire, having in a manner raifed all the Recruits he contra&ed for, and will be ready to deliver them at Fiume by that time the Tran (ports are got thither to carry them over ; which we reckon will be about the Middle of March. The Emperor has not yet refolved what fort of Mourningjhis Court fHpll go into for the Death of the iate Czar of Mufcovy. We hear the Exprefs from Count Wratiflau, that brought the faid News hither, will be fent back to Mofcow with a Letter for the new Czarina, written with the Emperor's own Hand ; and we are not without Hopes that that Princefs will renew the former Engagements with this Court. Stralfund, Feb. 26. N. S. A great Num. ber ot Swedifli Troops are expected here from that Kingdom; and we have actually provided Quarters for them.. Geneva, Feb. 28. N. S. They write from Turin, that the Count de Mellarede, Mini-fter of State to the King of Sardinia, well known for his Negotiations in different Courts of Europe, died lately in that City. Hanover, March 7. N. S. Couriers are continually pafling backwards and forwards; but we know nothing of their Difpatch�s. The Conferences at Brunfwick for exchanging the Subjects of Pruilia atid Hanover, are fufpended till farther Orders. Mean whikj we are informed, that a limited Time is pro. pofed ro the Court of Berlin, to declare tbem-ieives with regard to the Difficulties in that Affair; and that if the fame be not to the Satisfaction of our Court, we fhall foon fee the Effects of the great Military Preparations that have been making here. All our Ammunition-Waggons are actually ready ; and a great Number of Casks fuJi of Meal are fent to fome of our Frontier places. The Men belonging to the Train have likewife been reinforced ; and Part of them are ordered to be ready to march at an Hour's Warning. We have not yet our Compliment of Artillery Horfes ; but we need not put ourfelves in a Hurry about them,., becaufe we can have them at any time. On the 2d Inftant, Counc Schuylenburg,. a General of Horfe in the King of Pruffia's Service, fet out for Magdenburg. uJiere he has his Quarters � having been here to vifit his Sifter, who is th*. Privy Counfellor Munckhauzen'sLady. Hamburgh, March 7. N. S. They write from Mecklemburg, that the Governor of Domitz had lately received Orders from the Duke his Mafter,. toraife fo many Recruits, that bis Highnefs's Troops may be made up 5 or 6qoo Men in a few Months time, thofe in Cqurland being to continue in the Service of Mufcovy: Our laft Letters from Mofcow are dated the 12th of February, and bring nothing Material, the new Czarina not being expedted there, with the folemn Deputation, from Mittau, till the 20th of that Month ; and all the Tribunals were tO remain fhut fo long. According to our Advices from Petersburg, the Count de Munich, their Governor, had received Orders from the Senate at Mofcow, to acquaint the Trooos of his Garrifon, and alfo thofe in his Neighbourhood, not to obey any Commands for the future, but fuch as are fign'd by the Captain-General; whence they concluded* that the new Czarina defigns 10 conftituteaT Lord Lieutenant; but that no Orders of Importance will be made out, without the Con* lent of the Senate. .

The Meal in the Imperial Magazines here proving very gord, it yields a proportion* able Price at Market. The Pope's Death will make great Alterations in the Emperor's Meafures, with regard to the Affairs of Iraly. Our Government is treating with the Pruf-' fian Minifters, by .vay of Letter, about the Exchange of lome Deferters, and the Refto?' ring of a few Men imprefs'd into the Service on both Sides. What Succefs they will have,' no body yet can tell. Cleves, March 8. N. S. We had con-ceived Hopes that the Affair of the Intn> dudlion of Don Carlos into Italy with Spa-nifh Troops might have been fettled in a Friendly way ; but we are now of the Opinion, that a War is unavoidable in Italy^ which may fpread no body knows whither. We long to hear what Meafures fome certain Princes of the Empire will rake in this Critical Juncture. It is reported here, that Advice is brought from Mofcow, that Gr2 neral Jagofimki, a great Favourite of the late Czar Peter the Gteat, was put under Arreft for caballing in favour of the Princefs Elizabeth. .;>..
