'HEN her Imperial Highnefs the Great Dutchefs appointed the Veil Marfhal Count Munich Prime Mi nifter in alt the Coencils, (he faid, in Prefence of the whole Court, " There's my Defender, and the " Defcoder of theEmphe. 'Tis he who has deliver'd " vs U6M the Birons and their evil Defigns." ' Fis fmhd th.'t he /hall take Precedency next to the Duke Ahth6ny tjlric of Biunfwick, and before all the Minifies and Qererals J and that his Counted ftall take Place lifcewife before all the Ladies of the Court. His Son is appointed Great Steward tf the Houfhold to the Princcfs Anne On the Day that the Duke of Coarland was carried to SrhMTelbourg, nothing was omitted to mortify both him and his Lady. They were not only left expo fed to the Rain and Snow for neur half an Hour, before the GaK of the Winter Palace, where they were loaded with the Curfds of the Populace, but the Duk�, when he tits' put fhiothe Waggon ;o be convey'd to the Fortref*. had the further Mortification to fee ne.?r thirty Perfrns in his Paflage, that had been delivered out of the Pnfon to which he had committed them, who reproached him for What they had fuffered during their Confinement. Of this Nurilber was Andrew Jackowitz, a Counfellor of State, and Secretary of the Cabinet, who was fo icverely cha/lifed by the Knout, that he will bear the Marks of it as long as he lives. As it's apprehended that the Dake and his Brother the Count Guttavus de Binsn, may attempt to make away with rhetnfelves, Dtf. Smith, an Englifh Phyfician, is feht to the Fortrefs to attend them Ail the Generals, Officers, and other Perfons, that had obtained Employments or the Duke, or had any Share k> Lis Confidence, have either been arretted ortarn'doot; and atl ftis D&nieftrtks to the Number of 60, are com iftiffeo' to Priffffl. Search is making every where for his chief favourite, Liepman the Jew, by whofe abominable CjouofelSj, the Duke's Conduct was in many Refpects go verriM. Another of the Coke's Favoarrt� is jail appre henfled, vh M. Alfendeil, a Lfvoriian Gentleman, wbci was a Captain of the Guards, and ferv'd formerly in the French Army. This is the Man, it feems, who infortn'c tgaihft the Counts Wolititki, Mufm Puskin, and others, wbdfe trSgical Execution wa6 lately mentioned. M Beiluchef, a Minifter of the Cabinet, is committed, with his Lady -and fomily, to the Fortrefs of Kexholm : ' fii lucky for M- Schavivf, the Duke cf Coarland's Private Secretary, that before this Ca::ftropbe happened to hi: Mailer, the Dake had fent him to Stockholm to conclude an Accommodation with Sw.'den at vtiy Rate. 'Ti, Cities and Boroughs, of her Good-will aad the SaHsraclfon ftie feels at feeing fo great a Number of 4 them flflemMed in the prefent Dyct. * Nolhiag could have been more pieafing to her than ' i� He fliat iter faithful States Ottild have eajoyed* in the ' 'Beginning of her Reign, the Fruits of Tranquillity, ' which have been re-eiiablilhed every where. ; ' 'Butts they thern#Ivesn�y judge how necei&Ty it is tefcrt^up the Armies on foot, togarrifon the Froa tiersfiow"ii the lower Town,which has never happened in the memory of Man; and all the Towns fitoate upon that River have likewife been oveHiowed. S J E The Declaration of the King of Prnffia inlerted in my former from the Amfterdam Gazette, containing his motives tor marching a Body offeis Troops into Silefia, was communicated the 25th Inft. O, S to all foreign Ministers at Berlin, has alfo been delivered at the Hague, by M. Rasfeldt, and is to bi Iikewife given by other Mini-tters of the King of Pruffia at the feveral Courts of Europe who at the fame time are ordered to declare by Word of Mouth, That his Praffian Majeiry, by this Proceeding, does not mean to do the leaft prejudice to the Pragmatick sanction. A Manifefto is preparing at Berlin, and will foon be publiftied, letting forth the Rights cf the Bran-denbourg Family to the Dutchy of Silefia. SJE In Purfuance of thefe Refoluffons taken by the King of Pruffia, The Troops defign'd for Silefia began their March from Berlin the 23d ult. O.S. The hrft Body that went off was i-oo-Gunners, with four Pieces of heavy Cannon, twenty Field piecrs, four great Mortars, tour battering Pieces, and twenty four Falcons. After thefe went twenty four Carpenters, twenty Pontons, eight Waggons with Provifions, one hundred and one with Am munition, and the Squadron of Gens d'Arms followed immediately after, commanded by the Major d'Afle-bourg The 24th and 25th, two Regiments more marched with feveral of the King's Led Horfes, ard fome of the Plate for his Majefty's Table. On the 27th ano ther Regiment march'd with one hundred Pioneers, as did next day another, juft then arrived from Magdebourg, and the Regiment of Huflars Three Regiments that remain at Berlin, have received Orders to be ready to foi- ls Effects of Tufcany, Paima ar.d Placrniia ; and to thi; Refolution we attribute the Orders given by the King tar afTembting ;o,ooo Men in the Pnnc.p^ity of Catalogs, melt of which srs to be tianfported to Italy. The Court has rtceived a Letter from the Arhdutchefs Mary-There fa, acquainting the King with her Accetiion to the Dignitv of Queen of Hungary and Boheova ; but this Notification meets with feveral Difficulties, in r*garo ro '.be Titl;-s inferted in that Letter.
