WE have receiv'd an Account, chat their Catholick Majefties were not. yet arrived at San Lucarlaft Night, but were expected there this- Evening, from whence?'tis, foppafed they will fee out for Port St. Mary's To-morrow Morning, where fome fay they will make but a fhort Stay. This Day the Sardinian Ambaf-fador receiv'd an Exprefs from his Court, with the News of the King's having abdicated his Crown in favour of his Son the Prince of Piedmont; whereupon his Excellency fet out immediately, to communicate the Contents of his Diiparches to their Majefties, Thete Journeys of the Court are fo fatiguing, that feveral of the Courtiers are downright fick of them, and are returning to Madrid.

Some Days ago, the Archdeacon Nicaftro was inftall'd here into the Office of Apoftolical Vicar of this Archbiflioprick, with the loud Acclamations of the People; and the Citizens in general have given great Demonstrations of their Joy upon that Occafion. That Prelate is empower'd to fill any vacant Benefice, without confulting Cardinal Cofcia about it j and to appoint Collectors to receive the Revenues of the Archbifhoprick, without acquainting hjs Eminency with any one Cir-cumftance belonging to ir. When the Rabble were playing their Gambols upon this Inftallation, they broke down the Arms of the Cardinals Cofcia and Fini, and trampled them under Foot with the bittereft Curfes they could invent. If one Man !bawled out, God blefs Clement XII. a thoufand would anfwer, Andd-n the Family of Cofcia; which the Nobility have erafed out of their Re-gifter.
