ON the 9th Inftant, the Queen, ac-company'd by the Prince and Prin-cefs of Brazil, and tire Infante Don Pedro, took the Diverfion of Hunting at the Conn try Seat of Don George He-, neriques, Lord of Alcovas, and Comptroller of his Ma jefty V Houflioid. The 1 orb, being the Feftival of St. Francis of Borgia, their Majefties and the Prince and Princeffes of the Royal Family heard Divine Service in the Church of the Jefuites. The 14th, being the Vigil of the Feaft of St. Te-*efa, the King went to Prayers in the Church of the Barefooted Carmelites. Ontheioth and 11 tb;. the Brazil Fleet, con fitting of 9 Merchant-Ships, convoy'd by the Mother of God and our Lady of Nazareth Men of War, under the Command of Don Lewis de Abreu Frego and Don Antonio de Mello Lpbo, came into the Tagus, having been 8x Days in their Voyage. Donna Violante. Maria-An-ionietta de Portugal, Daughter of Don Lewis de Ahncida, and fecond Wife to Don Lewis de Almeida, Great Chamberlain to the King, died here the io:h Inftant. They write from Oporto,: that upon the 24th of laft Month, a Fire broke but there, which confumed feve-ral Hdu'fes before it could be extinguWved. The firft Advices, we have received here, of the Earthquake which happened ar Meaco in Japan, give no Particulars of that Event ; but we expect a Confirmation and Derail thereof by the firft Ships from the Eaft Indies. Madrid, Nov'. 7- N. S. The King has given Cardinal Borgia the Commandery of Cabeza del Buey, of the Order of Alcantara, vacant by the Death of his Sifter Donna Jofepba de Borgia, Countefs of Aba de Alifte. That Commandery is an Abbey of Nuns fituate near Burgos, anciently the Burying Place of the Kings of Caftile. His Majefty has nominated Don Francifco Antonio de Efcaudon, Bifhop of La Conception in Chili, to the Biftioprick of Quito in Peru ; and he is to. be fucceeded in Chili by Dr. Don Andrew de Paredes de Armendariz, Canon of the Church of Lima. Don Martin Goncalez de Arco, Cdrregidotof this City, died the 1 ft Inftant, aged 72 Years, or thereabout. By Letters brought by the Advice-Boat lately arrived at Cadiz, we are informed, that 16 Millions of Pieces of Eight had been- fent under a Guard to Cartagena, to jmrchafe European Commodities at the enfu-ing Fair; and that they expe&ed 8 or 10 Millions more. Florence, Nov. 1. N. S. On the 25th paft, the Duke de Salviati and his two Sons had an Audience of the Princefs-Dowager of Florence, who prefented them with feveral Knick-knacks in Gold. Count Caimo, Envoy Extraordinary of the Emperor, *recurn*d hither the fame Day from Lucca, whither it is believed he went to demand Winter Quarters of the Republick for1 fome. Imperial Troops ; [or ferbap to offer to commute with them for a certain Sum of Money.} Cardinal $cbonbornYNephews arrived here the z6tht and were .complimented tbe next Day by the Emperor's Minifter. .Signor. Piccolomini, a Native of Sienna, went thro' this City, lad Week, on his way to carry the Cap to tfie new Cardinal Aldobrandinr in Spain. The Deputies of our Metropolitan Church, who go to compliment (he Pope upon his Election, are Signors Alemanni, Ricci, Martini, and Franchini. The Epidemical Diftemper which rages among the Emperor's Troops, gains ground every Day, notwithstanding all the Care that is taken to prevent its fpreading from one Quarter to another. We have received Advice from Sienna, that a Thunderbolt lately fell upon their Town-boule, and did it cpnfiderable Damage, as well as to a neighbouring Church, the Steeple whereof was beat down, Moft of the German Officers who were in the Milaneze, are upon the Road to Vienna, to raife Recruits.
