S J E r GERMANY. Breflan, Dec. 27. The King of Pruflia, during the three Qays he (laid here, made feveral Alterations in the Regency. ITie principal Polls will be conferred on none but Protell s for the future. Thr King catrfed an Account to b- lai i ire him of the fums received by the Queen of Hungary's icers for the produce of that Princefs's Revenue to the othof December: The whole amounted to 250,000 wns for this City only, which fum his Majefty fent to tenna.

The Count de Gotter and the Baron �Borck have omit'ec" nothing in order to engage theQu- en 0 yield Silefia to the King of Pruflia, who it's faid ( fF, ^ he, ajefty in confideration thereof fome Mi linns, aid ftrrngly 0 fopport her Intereft, and that of the Grand Duke. The lectors of Mentz and Triers have ackn nvledg'ci a'! the ighrs of the Queen, and particularly that of transferring er Vote for the Kingdom of Bohemia to the Grand L\ike Tufcany. It's faid that the King of Pruflia has by his linifters declared to this Court, " That it was not poflib'e r him to change the Refolutions which he had taken, bur hat he was ftill re^dy to accommodate M?tP� keep in their Quartern the Upper Palatinate. , G E Jon� January 13. Letters from Vienna advife, that there loch talk there of an Alliance being upon the Tapis be-to the King of Poland Elector of Saxony, and the Elec-'w Cologn, Bavaria, and Palatine. DA Vienna, Jan. 14. Some will have it that the bold Refolutions of this Court in ordering the three PruiTim .Vinifters to depart her Majefty's Dominions is owing to the A durances given her by that of Drefden, that fhe wil' with all her might maintain the Pragmatick Sanction audcemr.el bis Pruffian Majefty to defift from bis Expedition and Claims on Silefia. They are now longirg to knew whethtr uicfe Affurances are Fact, and what Impreffion they will nuke on the Pruflian Court. Prince de Lichtenftein has adviled frcm Paris, that upon taking his Audience of Leave, the Cardinal had given him the firorgeft AiTun;nces on the Part uf France that fhe would religioufly obferve the Prngmntick fan ftion, and never directly nor indirectly (uft'erSpain.Bavarij, or any otherPower tozft contrary thereto ThL bein^ grunted, they are in hopes to furmount the D ffkulties that feem to threaten them on all fides, the other Advices import that the Eleftor of Bavaria was in Expectation of bting fuon rein forced with 20,000 French and as many of the Cologn Troops upon which he would begin the G'nieon his fide, there arePeifons who pretend t;|know thataTreaty is fcrm'd at Munich with the Prufian and Saxon Minifies, purfuant to which, Pruffia is to have and to hold Sil.fia, Saxony, Bohemit Moravea and Bavaria, the Circle of Auilru, together with Hungary and the late Emperor's Pofieflion in Italy. MS Franckfort, Jan. 15. Its confirmed that fome Thou'andi of the French Troops are immediately to afiemble upon the Rhine, to form a Body of Obfervation. Great quantities cf Provifion and Ammunition are amafling, both in Alfktia and upon theMofelle. DA PRUSSIA. Berlin, Jan. 10. All the Revenues of Silefia are, now paid to the Kirg ; the Receipts are made in his M'j'fly's Name for New Year's Day. The late Emperoi's-Arms have been taken down from feveral places, and thofe of his Majeily put up in their Head. A Memorial has been publifhed here, proving the lights of the Royal ?nd Electoral Houfe of Pruflia and Branden-brurg to the Dutchies and Principalities of JagerfdofF, Lig-nitz, Brieg, Wolau, and Lordfhips depending on Silefia. Among other Things it is faid in that piece, " That the Houfe of Auftria has fufficiently acknowledged the Rights of that of Brandenbcurg, by offering large fums to indue; the latter to re'.inquifli them , That Zeal for Religion having been the moft powerful Motive to the Conduct of the Houf; of Auftria, that very Motive ought to induce that of Brandenburgh to intereft himfelf in favour of the Proteftants, &c." ,' SJE Berlin, J*n. 10. We are aflured the King h^s declared that ail thofe who have advanced Money upon Mortgages in Sihlia m.ll be punctually paid according to the Agreement they made with the late Emperor. GE They write from Amfterdam, that Letters have been received (here from Hamburgh, which give Affurances that the Grand Du'chefs Regent of Ruffia, has in a very affectionate Minner anfwer'd a Letter written to her by theQutcn of Hungary, complaining of the ur.juftifiable Proceeding of the King of Pruffia, in caufing his Troops to eriter Silefia in a hoftile Manner, after having promis'd to fuppot tlie Pub!?s with which all Germany is threatened. The Queen of Hungvy has not only writ to the Stares of the Empire, but alio to the Foreign Powers, to complain of the Kirg of PruffiVs Enterprize; and her Majefty has dcclar'd, that lhe can admit of no Propofal of Accommodation, till he has withdrawn his Troops from Silefia. An Exprefs went thro* here t'other Day from Hancver for Copenhagen, with Di'patcl^ which thsy f^y relate to the march of the 6000 Danes that are in r the Britilh Pay, in order to join a Body of iSoco Hanoverians and therewith to form a Camp towards the Elbe and the Wefer, near Erchsfeld', where they are to be reinfere'd by 8000 Heflians. Some Trocps of Saxe Gotha are a lo to aiTemb!e towards Mulbaufen. So that in all probability thefe Forces are to be a pan of that Army of Obfervation which feveral Princes of the Empire have refolvtd to hove on foot. SJE ITALY. Rome, Dec. 13. It's faid that Cardinal Acquaviva has demanded Leave of his Holinefs for the Troops of the King of the Two- Sicilies to pafs thro1 the Ecclcfrftical Territories, and likewife for permifiion to torm Magazines for their fub-Hftwcc, who it's pretepded arc going jpw Tufcany. It's affurtd aifo, that his Eminence, in another Audience^f the Pope, demanded the Invelliture of the Dutchies of Parma and Placentia for the Infant Don Philip. It's not yet known uhit Aniwer the Pcpe has rmde to thefe Demandi. SJE SPAIN. Madrid, Dec. 23. A Memorial is pub'ifried here, i> the French Tongue, fettirg forth the Pretenfions of this Cr.wn, not only to the Kingdoms of Hungary and Bone-ma, but alfo to the Archdutchy of Auftria, the Provinces atjarent, ar.d in fhorr, to all the Dominions poffeffed by the late Emrcror Charles VI. This Memorial is drawn up by a famous Civilian, who it a Member of the Council of the Indies. The King has laid a Tax of the tenth Penny, on all the EHates of his fubjrfts, rot excepting the Revenae of the Cle-ey- This Tax takes Place from New Year's Day: How .'org; it vw.'i laft we don't know ; hut it is computed it wi!lj.'CJucc Letw.en ten an! tweive Millions of Piaftxrs per Anni.ni. Sometime fince the Marquis de V lilariasdeclar'd to Pni.c* Vaigu^rarti, AmlafTddor f xtraordinary from the Court, of Turin, That the King having refaived to affemble an Array in Italy, in O'der to maintain his Rights there, his M; j--:!y dtfired to know how the King of Sardinia would behave on tint otc fi: rj. Prince Vaiguarar.ti immediately cifp;ircii:d a Courier 10 his C'.u^t; The Courier wis to have been back again laft Week, which makes the Court not 2 litile Uneafy at this Delay. SJE PORTUGAL. Lisbon, Dec. 7. The bad Harveft we have had this Year, and the Embargo laid on Provifions in Great Britain ard Ireland, caufe a great Scarcity all over this Kingdom. The niifcry cf the P not a Palace cr Houfe that is fafe hem thefe Viol lo that the Nobiluy and the foreign Miniiters are obliged ro keep their fervants in Arms, and coutinually upon ihe Watch. The King's Ministers had a Conference a few' Days fince wi.h the Britifb Envoy, in order to obtain Permiiiion to import Provifions fromEngland and Ireland. SJE F R A N C E. Naotz, Jan. 2. Yefterday a Ship arrived here''from Mar-tinier, the Mailer of which reports, that on the 17th of October laft the Marquis d' Antin laid an Embargo on all the fhipping in that Port; that having repaired the Damage his Fleet fuffered in the paflage, he put to Sea again the 22d i that the Embargo continued til] the 26th, that no fbip might follow the Admiral, and obferve what Courfe he fleered ; thatncverthelefs it was currently reported at Martinico, that the Maiquis was gore to Cartbagena, in order to take on board the Tieafureof the Gaileor.s, and bring it to Enrope. SJ E Havre de Grace, Jan. 9, We hear by a Merchantman . arrived here lail Wtdcefday from Martinico, which Place ' ih" left the 17th of Nov. that the Marquis d'Antin's fqna-dron arrived at Port Royal the 1 othof October,, where, after repairing tie Damage they had fuffer'd in the Voyage, the Miirquis took on boar.l a considerable Quantity of Ammunition end fome Lard Forces, with 600 Boccaniers, and reckoned to fet f ii hs 18th or 19th of Nov. with only 16 S.ilof the I.ine of Battle, four or five of his fquadron not b-ring yet refurd.

It feems at laft that our Courts to continue a free Agent, as well as Great Britain, in the Affairs of Europe, will take no further ilep io thofe of the Houfe of Auftria in Italy, than to keep every thing ^tranquility there, if poflibk, according to the ancient Conilitu-tion ; nor is it probable, that at the EleSion of an Emperor {he will prrticul^ily intereft herfelf in favour of the Grand Duke, or Saxony, or Bavaria, unlets feme advantageous Offers were ma (e to place Staniflauson theThrone of Poland. ' 1 is thought tide Refjlutions of our Court cannot be very p'tafii.g to Spain, who by pur.'uing her Expedition in Italy, ieem� to pronnle herfelf great Advantages for that Queen's Family.
