Tho' fo greata Scree is made of the Regulation lately conceded between riie Repuhlick of Genoa, and the Conrt of Verfaille , we are affured by a Letter f om Final, that 'tis thereby ftipulated that Fiance fhall withdraw a Part of her Troops from the of Corfjca. and leave no more than are aifolutely necefiary for maintaining the Tranquility on the hoot it now Hands. S J E Amfterdam, April 24. The Umbrage taken by the States of Holland at the Court of Dtnnmk's af-fuming the Sovereignty of the Sea in Davis's Str-ight., feems to increafe daily. 7 he Danes take upon them in this Part of the World cither to hinder ali other \Tstions from ftfhirig for Whales, or oblige them to piy a certain Tribute for fo doing. This Affair, it's Utd, gives fome Difguft too to' the Eng'.ifh, who will icarcey fubmt to any fuel; Impohtion. Some p:i vate Letters received from the Welt-Indies, fince the taking of Porto Bello, remark, that thete is no con-ctiving how great the Averuon of the Natives of the Country is toward* the Spaniard?, and their oppref-five Government; not at thia Place only, but like-wile at Carthagcna in the lh\nd of Cuba, and in fhort in almolt al! the Spanifh Settlements; fo that with a few Troops to fupport (hem, thefe Letters further fay. it would be very eafy to excite them to calt off the ->pani(h Yoke. L � Hague, April 26. By fome Letters we are in-fsrmed, that it has been amply remonltrated, That it was far from being confident with the true Intereft of the Emperor to put too much Confidence in the daBZting, but empty Promiies of the Court cf France, efpeciaily at fo critical a Juncture as this, it beng not at a'.l improbable but that certain circumltances might ve.-y foon ari.e, which would convince his Imperial Majefty of the Neceflity there was for him to return to his t.ncietu System of Policy, in order to prevent the Equilibrium of Power in Europe being -bfo ute'y deli re y'd ; fo: fhould this come to pals, of wnich there leems to be no Jmpoflibili.v, the Houfe of An'.tiia would in all likelihood fall the flrft Victim to unlimited Power, it being perfectly well known t the Imperial as well as other European Courts, that 'he Houfe of Bourbon can no other way raife itfelf to a higher Pitch of Grandeur than upjii the Ruins of the Auitriun iioute. L E LONDON, April 26. Extract of a Letter from Stockholm to a foreign Mi nitter at Hamburgh. We are approaching to the Moment that will cer tainly difcover the Cauie why fuch great Armament; are making in this Kingdom, tho' no body ventures at preient to fay what it is. Every one allows, that tne Forces of Ruffia are fuperior, and 'tis likewise ac knowledg'd, that in cafe of a Rupture, that Power might do a great deai of Mifchief to the Swedifh C'cnS, by Means of her Gallies and other \ elTels; confequently the'e Reafons augment the Impitience there 'a for a fpeedy Eclairciiment. Mean time it is certain, that the People tic in a great Agitation, and that if in.tead of 80,000 Men that are actually on foot in this Kmgdom, trere was a NeceCity for ico.cco, the Government might depend on h-ving them in a very lutie time, fo fond are People for in kiting in the Army, &c S J P. From Amsterdam, the 26th Inft. N. S. Various Letters have been received here, and at the Hague, in which is contained a Piece of News tiiat furnifhes Subject for all Converfations ; thefe Letters 3dvifing that Admiral Clavijo is failed from Cadiz with 12 or 15 Men of War ; iome of them ay, .in order to fa vour the Erterprize upon Port Mahon, and after being reinforced by the way, with the Ships which hitherto durlr. use f:ir from Alicant and Carthagena, to go in quefi of Admiral Haddock : Others lay thefe Ship-are deflined to go into Ame;ica> tofuccour the other Carthagena, and fave the Galleon?, by fighting Admiral Vernon The People who write thefe Letters add, that all the Motions which have been made in Cat .Ionia, and the great None that has been made of tiie Enterprize against Minorca, were nothing moic than a Feint, in order to induce Admiral Hau dock, with the Bulk of his Squadron, to fail further fiotn Cadiz, and by that Means give the Spanifh Admiral an Opportunity of going out of tiie Bay without �Danger. This News appears fo e.vtrao-di1 ary here, that the Truth of it is much queflinned ; and the more fo, as it has been gener-Uy laid, that none of the bptmifh Ships were actually rcdy to put to sea, for Mar great Number* of the Sailors which were to Lave m.;nn'd them were enter'd on board the Private-r.-. Jf, however, contrary to Expectation, thi; Repoit mould be confirm'd, fome impoitant i'^nf-aclion will e'er long be heard of. L E From the Hague, April 29. Some Politicians will it, that tnc Court of France will fpeedily take Part with the Spaniards againft the Engfffh j ar.d this Opinion they found upon the Declaration j that the Cardinal made to a certain Minister foon af-j ter the taking of P�rto Bello, which was, that his I moft Chriftiaa Majefty could not look iniiierently upotr the Progrefr which the Englifh were making in America, feeing this Country might properly be faid to belong to divers European Nations for whofe Benefit Spain only held it, as it were, in truft. But his Eminence has been lllent upon this Subject, fince he finds that the Englifh do not attempt to eftablifh themfelves in the Places they take from the Spaniards, contenting themfelves with only deftroying their Fortifications. The Anfwer which is made to thefe Politicians, who feem to think of nothing but a general War, is, that if Frr.nce fhould {hew the Ieafi Defiga of interfering in the Quarrel, the Rcpublick would na longer continue unactive. It is eTen in fome Degree certain, that the Reafcn of their High MightinefTea putting cfF the Augmentation of their Forces, is be-caufe they would not give Occafion to France to make any Increafe r.f hers, cr to put her Troops into any equivocal Motion. LE 'They ad vile from Msdrid of the 5 th Inft. N. S. That notwirh! arding the movements of th- troops, many are cf cp:r.:cn chat fome Apprizing News will be heard from i ta y hx.ner than any thing from Minorca; other?, !i:.l maintain that the Co-rt is absb-.utely bent iv^n beficjjing Port Mahon: Howevera there is bur li.t'e to be had on the latter* the Eng'ifh Squadron that cruizes off that Mand being daily reinforced, which probably will endeavour ta draw matters into length, or whotiy fruftrate that De* fign. They are allured that Admiral H ddock can-not hinder their anding the Trvere difpatched to Cadiz, to fend away Advice Boats immediately for Carthagena and Buenos Ayres, with; new Initructions for the Governors of thofe two Towns, and other Places in America: And v/e are a/fured, that among the reft, an O'der is gone frora the King, to profecute the Commandants and cthec Officers of two of the Forts at Porto Bello, and Gloria Caltlc in particular. SJE From Cadiz of the 5 th Infant, that two Veffels arc freighted there to tranfport Provifions and Ammuniti� ens for America: And being to fail the next Day, are 10 be convoy'd by a Frigate as far as the Canaries* The^re^ like wife equipping in this Port in ail hafte, fix or {even Men of War: Some of the Veffels of the Flotilla which weredifcharged, are employ'd for this purree. G E That they bad received Letters from Don Bias de LcfTe, Commander of the Galleons at Carthagena ; which fay, he has unloaded the GaDeons, and fecured the Effe�s. G E it i: not doubted but the Sqaadrons from * adiz and Ferrol are ordered for the Weil Indies, what makes this rather believed, is their having great quanties of Iron onboard; they have alfo 3000 Regular Soldiers on board ; and as they are to be join'd by {even or eight Ships in America, under the Command of Don Blafs, they flatter chemfeives, they fhad be ab'e not only to ltop the progrrfcof the Engiifh theie, but even to undertake fume thing againti them. The Court, 'tis faid. has received Advice, that Admiral Efca.'da, was arrived with fome Men of War at Porto Rico, the Capital of the Ifland of that Name. Whitehall, April 25. the King has been plea-fed to appoint his Royal Highnefs the Duke of Cumberland to be Colonel of his Majefty's fecond Regiment of Foot Guards, called the Coldftream, in the room of the Right Honourable Richard Earl of Scarborough deceafed. LG And, YeSerdny his Royal Highnefs kifled the King's Hand for the fame, and received, the Compliments of the Nobility, and hkewifc of the Officers of the Regimencon that occafion- SJE All Orders are iffued oat in his Royal Highnefs'* Name, and to-morrow his Royal Highneij will be prefented to the faid Regiment, the acccJary Orders being given for that puroofc. � J � Ti*e ;
