From Saturday June the 28th, to Tuesday July the ift, 174c Since our lift arrived one Britifh Pacquet, which brought one French and one Holland Mails, South-Carolina, April 28. N the 10th of this Month a Spanish Privateer chafed theShorehamMan of War, commanded by the Hon. Cape. Bof-cawen, who was cruizing near the Banks of the Iflands of Tortuga, and not endeavouring to run away the Privateer foon got up with her and I>egan to fire at her very briskly, which was immediately return'd by the Shoreham, who went dole along fide of her and gave her a Broadfide, and at the fame time a Volley of Small Shot, on which the Privateer iiruck her Colours and afk'd for Quarter. Not one Man belonging to the Shoreman was wounded, nor any of the Spaniards kili'd, but a great many wonnded. The taking this Ship will be of infinite Service to our Trade, fhe being big enough, to take the belt Me. chant Ship that fails to thefc Parts ; lhe mounted ten Carriage and twelve Swivel Gurs, and every Man had a Firelock and Cutlas, who were �7 in Number, The Captain has put in here to land his Prisoners, and intends to (ail again as loon as he has got in frefh Water and Proviiions. G E Madrid, June 7. J he Court has difpatched a Courier to FerroJ, with fecret Orders touching Admi ral Pintado's Squadron. It is yet uncertain whether this Squadron will fail towards Minorca, or into America ; which Uncertainty give room to believe, that the Propofitions made for a Sufpenfion of Arms between this Court and that of Great Britain will be brought to a happy Determination. It'3 reported, that after art End is pat to the War with the Englifh, Endeavours will be uied to conclude a Marriage between the cJdeilinfanta and the Dauphin. G � Naples, June 7. The King has granted to the Widow tod the Daughter of one of the J n�h Officers, kyeJy wcecuted for aflkffinating hia-Coionel, a Pennon �f fourteen Ducats per Month to each, and has made the Son of that Officer a Cadet. The Court has juft received an E�prefs with the News, that the Treaty ?f Commerce between the Kingdoms of Naples and Sicily and the Ottoman Porte, is concluded ; and that the latter has engaged to ufe its good Offices with the Regencies of Algiers, Tunis, and Tripoli, to conclude a Treaty of the like Nature -w^h thele Kingdoms G E Leghorn, June I ij. The Mailer of a French Vef-fel in four Days from Toulon reports, that a great number of Mortars, Bombs, and other Warlike Storej, had been put on board the Squadron equipping at Toulon; but that its Destination was kept very fe crer. MS According to fome Advices from Tunis, the new Bey has begun his Regency by ridicuouily pretending that the foreign Conful* there fhall kneel down and kifshis Hand, when they come to compliment him on his Acceffion to the Government of that Repub lick. The Sieur Gautier, the French Conful, refused at firft to comply with that Demand ; but the hey perfiltcd in it, and fending him Word, that if he did not perform what was required of him he wsuld caufe his Head to be iiruck off, the Conful immediately af-fembled all the French at Tunis to confult with them about the Matter, and they urtanimoufly advifed him to conform, through. Necelfity to the faidBeys Pretentions, and then write to his Court for Inflections how to behave hereafter. It is not doubted but he will fpeedily receive Orders w retire forthwith from Tunis. GE .Letters from CaJvi in Corfica, by the Way of Paris, pretend, that Baron Ncuhoff's Nephew, who lor fome time pall had been watching to withdraw out of that Ifland, has lately receiv'd a Supply of Money, with Arms and Ammunition, and appears more refolute than ever, continuing his Incurfions in the open Country at the Head of his fmall Troop. G E Genoa, June 11. The Spanifh Gallies are failed from Barcelona for Carthagena: A French Tartane from Marfeilies confirms, the fitting out the Spanifli Gallies at that Port. MS 'Tis faid the fending a Body of Tmperialiils to Corfi-ea is in confequencs of a Difpofition agreed upon be tween the Courts of Vienna and V'erfailles. MS Rome, June i(. The News of hi* Sicilian Ma-jefty's concluding a Treaty of Commerce with the Grand Seignior, feems to have given fome uneafmefs to trie Government, becaufe it is to be feared that the Smpj belonging to the Subjects tf the Ecclcfuliical State, will be oftner expofed to be taken by the Tur-kiih VeiTels, when the latter have full Lioerty to Trade into the Ports of Naples and Sicily: So that it is upon this Account, it is though; the Government will accede in a certain manner to that Treaty. D ? Rome, June 11. It's reported that the Chevalier de St. George has lately fign'd a Deed, by which he declares, ' That he deiigns to pa6 the Remainder of ' his Days in Fenc:.*; and being'unwilling longer to ' employ himlelf in the purfuit of ambitious Proji-cts, * he has refo.'v'd wholly to refign all his Rights to his ' eldeft Son ; and he hopes that the Princes who have ' hitherto given him Proofs of their good Will, will ' interefl themrfelves in favour of his Son. G E Petersburg, June 11. The lafl Courier the Court received from Conflaminople brought a Copy of the Tnaty of Alliance between Sweden and the Pcrte. A grand Conference has been held at the Pskce, in which the Treaty was examined. We talk variously in regard to the Refolution taken iu tha: Conference. In the mean time fome meafures hare been taken to put the Empire in fome condition of a&ing whenever the Circumltances of Aff.irs require it. The Court ras fent Orders to the Ukraine, to leave 32,000 HoHe and Foot in that Piovince. D P Hague, June 23. Things continue here much upon the fame Footing, with relpect to Inactivity, as they h.ive done for fome conliderabie Time pail, there having been nothing lately done, or even laid, about the Augmentation of the Forces of the Repub-lick. The Court of Spain, peihaps for that Rsafon, treats the State with a good deal of Slight, the for mer having neither yet given an Anfwcr to the Memorial of M. Var.der Meer, againit the Article in the King of Spain's Declaration of War, that per-mits the Spanilh Privatsers to take the Ships of the neutral Powers, which fhall be found to have Eng'ilh Merchandize on board; nor has that Court yet taken any ^Refolutibn, in regard to the .Refl.itut.ion of the Dutch Ship's fome time ago feized on by the Spanifli Guarda Collas : Moreover, the Subjects of the Re-publick have had leveral VeiTels taken by the Spaniard?, even fince the Commencement of* their War with Great Britain. The Solicitation of their High MightinclTes Ambaffador at the Court of Spain, to have Redrew upon thefc feveral Grievances, has been of late but very little attended to ; and, as he fays in one of his lafl Letters, no Jullice is to be expected in relation to thq above Articles, fo long as Thing? are in their prcfent Situation. And further, the Marquis dt St. Giles, Ambaflador at the Hague from Sp*in, has very lately declared to their High Migktincfles, that they ought to forbid their Subjects from failing to Gibraltar, and trading at that Port; for as his Catholick Majelty looked upon this Town as abfo-Iutely blocked up by LaW, and in fome refpect �bby Sea, all the Ships that fhould be met with in the Road to that Fortrefs w ould be taken,ajid deemed as good Prizes. Tie Prefidejit of the Week, to whom tne Marquis de St. Giles made this Declaration, an-fwered him by only coolly faying, ' Your Excellence" ' will do their High MightinelTes great Pleafure, in ' letting them know how many Spanilh Men of War ' are employed in blocking up the Bay of Gibraltar.' As thefe Grievances of the Kepablkk remain unre-drefied, the Britifh Miaiiler at the Hague takes this Opportunity of more lirictly engaging their High Mightmefles in the Interell of his Mailer, and to make a common Csufe with him, efpecially if France fhould make the leail Motion towards joining with Spain. G E Hanover, June 24. It's affiir'd, that the lafl Courier feat to London was charg'd with Difpatchrs con cerning the Propofitions of Peace made between Great Britain and Spain. People make no douot but that it is relative to this Peace that the Chevalier Schaub is expected here, to be employ'd in a Negocution. G E Berlin* June 24. N. S. The King coming hither fome Days ago frum Potfdam, was accotled in the RoaJ by a tnoufand little Boys from ; to 10 Years of Age, who after tiie Acclamations of Long live Frederick our gracious Lord, encompafs'd his Loach and cry'd out, Merciful Lord, deiiver us from Bondage, and refcue us from Slrutry. The King promised ihim their Liberty, and next Day they hail it. Thefe poor Children were inroli'd by Orikr of the late King, and wore a red Cravat as a Badge that their Parents had nothing to do with them, which Cravat they call'd the Collar of Slavery ; but the King.has order'd his recruiting Officers to itrikc them �ut of the Roll, and to ukc Oif the ignomirnou; Ornarnrat which the/ . wore about their Neclci. � G u.

The third contains a mutual Promifetoobfc ysthe Engagements of this Treaty. In the faurtjgit ii ia^ that'WheBe-\�i ir is perceived that Ruflik If^Bui^to break with the two Empires and to diilurb their TrajBqaiTfty, the Contracting Parties fhall hrit of all carefully apply themfclves to prevent a Rupture; But if tjjey caa'c fucceed in it, thty fhail jointly ->.tt3ck that Power, ani make their utmoilESorts to pr ' >re themfelves a fuit-able Satisfaction. The fifth Article flipulates, that if Ruffia attacks either Sweden or the Ottoman Empire* iuch Holiility /hall be deemed as an attack upn pftfc the Contracting ParjtfeJ, and confeqitently they^fij^lE employ all their Forces, by Sea and Land, to obtain a juft Reparation in fevour of the Party, aggrieyfeji. By the fixth it is agreed, that if Tvuffia attacks U# Ottq-man Empire, Sweden fhall immediately declare Wee againil that Power, and not give ever unfll fte -has forced her t� make, luitabx SatisfactiflPj the Grand Seignior is bound to do tha fame whfpever Ruflia at-ta�ks Sweden, and both Parties further obli?e them-fe Ives never to enter into any Negotia aon :w�h. the Enemy but by common Confent, nor make a feperate Peace with him; The fame Article a4ib ttipniatesi that Peace being made by confent cf both Panics, the: Defenfive Alliance fhall ttiU fubfiil between them as before. In the feventh Article the Contracting Parties agree to invite other Princes and States in Eurcp� to accede to the Treaty.

This Treaty of Alliance having been ratified by the King and the Grand Seignior, his Majefty's Minifters have fince cojamuni-cated it to feveraj Foreign Minifters. G �1 From the Hague, That the King of Pruffia, in a grand Council, progpfed to offer his Mediation to th* Emprefs of Ruffia and King of Sweden, to pre/erv� cue Tranquility of the North; adding, that he fhoolcC be lorry, fhat Blood fhould be fpilt in his Nsighbour-heod, if he could prevent it: And alio propofed a ipee-dy Reduction of his Forces from 70,000, their pre-fent number, to 30 or 40,0.00, that he might lefienv the Taxes of bis Subjects. The firll was approved of, but in.regard to the lafl, they humbly remonfira-ted to his Majetty, that till the Clouds that hovered over his Borders on the fide of Swecifh Pomerania and Ruffia, as alto over the Countries of Juliers and Berg, were blown over, it might be more advilable to defer the Reduction or his Army : His Maj^fty with iome marks of Cone.-. m, then laid, how then caR I eafe my People of their Burdeni ? 'Tis faid that-s fo�n as decency will permit his Majefly to go fb f*r Abroad, after the Death of his Father, he will make a Vifit to the King of Great Britain at Hanover.
