X v From Saturday March the 22d, to Tuesday March the 25th, 1740., s Paper, 7'hat we may have Room to infert all the frejhefl and mofi authentick News, and oblige thofe s with their Advert ijements, being often ujfen the Arrival of Vacquets forced to leave them out. :S'�mce our kft arrived one Britilh Pacquet, Holland and one French Mail.

And it is faid the Guards and Grenadiers are (ban to be augmented in like manner. M. Beftuchef, the Czirina's Minifter at this Court, has received a Letter rti Notification for the King of Denmark, upon the Exchange of the Ratifications of the Treaty between Mufcovy and the Porte. The late General Le wenoren having before his Death ordered that his Funeral mould be without Pomp fend very private, the King himfilf was pleafed to interpofe, and in fome meal'ure to alter thofe Directions: Wierefore, in Conformity to his Mdjeily's Pleafure, the Ccpfe, after having Jain two tr three Days in State, wis interred here this Morning in the Church of our Lady, with military Honours. The Enfigns of Command as General, and the Orrer of the Elephant, were carried before by two Co:onels in two Coaches with fix Horfes; twelve Majors fupported the Pall ; a Great Gun was fired e Very Minute during the Proceffion, and the Regiment %f the Prince Royal being drawn up in Parade, made frveral Difcharges of Small Arms. The Htarfe was followed by /bar Coaches and Six ; and in that which went next to it, M.Schalin accompanied the Son of e deceafed as a Chief Mourner. L. G. Rome, March 5. They write from Naples, that the Animpfities of the People againft the Jews begin '^0 advance into a fort of Fariaticilm ; and that there ffe feveral who in order to diitinguifh thcmfelves from the People of that Perfuafion> put particular Marks upon their Habits. _ G. �. � Berlin, March 15. The King flill keeps his Chamber, bat his Mnjefty's Miniilers arc every Day admitted into his Prefence to receivehis Orders. G.E. Paris, March 23. His moft Christian Majtfty has appointed the eighteen Csptrins which fhall command the 12 Men equipped at Bred, and the fix fitted out at Toulon. His Majefty his alfu made feme Promotions in the Army, which are not yet declaied. L. E. Letters from Rome report, that a few Days ago, in the midft of the Scrufny, Cardinal Altieri had a long Fit of an Apoplexy, which r ized him again the next Day, and gives caufe to be apprehenfive for his Life. G.E. Cardinal Laurence Altieri his Brother, upon whom the Death of his Fnend the Cardinal Otto.ioni made a great Impreffion. is likewiie dangeroufly ill, and t/does not go to the Conclave. G. E Letters from Genoa of the 9th- inform us, that the French Generals, one after another, are continually entertaining the Laujes at Ealtia and th; ir Hufbancs with magnificent Balis. At the fame time they nrg-lc?t nothing to root out the Vagabonds who lurk in Mountains, a Lift of whofe Names the Magiftrates and Panfh Miniilers are lequired to give in to the j Marquis de Maillebois. Bat notwithltanding thefc Precautions, Murders ale frequenly committed. There is alfo a Mortality in fome of the Vill iges. And on fthe 6th in the Morning there was a considerable Earthquake, which not' returning did no great Damage. G. E. EttracYof a Letter from Peterfburg. , The Ferment railed throughout the whole Ruffian Empire by the Dolgorpwki Coiifpincy, now, after a flectffary Execution of leveral of the Heads of it, and * prudently banifbing tmJ lmprioning others, happily fubfides. To fuch a Pitch of Maturity was this Plot 'arrived, that the prefent Cow dilution ofthat Empire was- in fome Danger of being overturned. The Infection had Ipread itielf afmoif every where, and had even reached the Armies under the Command of the Counts Munich and Lacey ; feme of the Officers of both uhich, upon the Difcovery of thefe black Defigns, were arrefted. Tke Confpirators were, at a ' Tune fixed, to have had on foot an Army of 40,000 Men; and intended, after they had maffacred the Koeig^-rs, to hive favoured tho Defigns of a neigh-k�*iftg Power j which, on its fart, was to have af- filed them in bringing about their intended Revolution, and in putting every thing in the Empire upon its ancient Footing. The Court declines at prefent, with great Diicretion, to publifh the Particulars of this Confpiracy, which 'fe|K|y>ot we" do without embroiling ittelf wi:h fejfjgg|gjj Neighbours, and publick. The AnibalTador here, has vet propofed nothing of Importance to the Court. He appli:s himfelf altogether at prefent to a narrow Oblervation of the Miniftry, and to penetrate its Views; and does not yet fay that he is particularly charged with any thing, except a Trqaty of Commerce : But it's b.-iicvi-d, that the Arnv 1 of the Bri tifh Miniiier will occaficn him fome other Employment. The Msniiter of Sweden, on his Part, vigilantly watches the Marquis de la Chetardie, and is more than ordinarily obiequious to him. It is however very evident, that now this Conrt is not under tae lead Apprehenfion of the Defigns of the Swedes in Finland, where their Troops every Day greatly diminish, thro' the Want of Provifions and other Ne-ceffaries, the Province of Finland being almoft ruined by fo long a Continuance of fo great a Number of Troops in i". Upon the whole, th; Affairs of the Kmpire of Rufiia are at this Jundure in a very happy Situation, having nothing to fear from its Enemies, and amply in ib> Power to affifl its Friends and Al lies.' G. E. Savannah in Georgia, OcV 2. General Oglethorpe is arrived here, and has received and publifhed the fame Orders as came to the reft of the Governors of America. There is one Privateer of twenty-four Pieces of Cannon fitted out from this Town, at the Charge of Capt. Davis, one of the Freeholders here, the Spaniards having feized Effects of his to the Value of 40,000 Pieces of Eight. We have taken a Spanifh Spy. L. E. An Account of the Negroe InTurrection in South Carolina. Some time fince there was a Proclamation publifh'd at i>c. Augulline, in which the King of Spain (then at Peace with Great Britain) promis'd a Protection and Freedom to all Negroe Slaves, who would refort! Plantations, thinking they had not been miffed ; bat ~ - . - ^were t}jere taken and fhot ; fuch as were taken in the .field alfo, were, after being examined, fhot on the fpot: and this is to be faid to the honour of th� Carolina Planters, that notwithftanding the provocation they had received from fo many Murders, they did not torture one Negroe, but only put them to an eafy death. All who proved to be forced, and were not concerned in the murders and burnings, were pardon!^ and this fudden Courage in the Field, and the Humanity afterwards, hath had fo good an effect, that there hath been no farther Attempt, and the very Spirit of revolt feems over. About 30. efcaped from the fight, of which ten marched about 36 Miles South-pu fued, but the Rangers being then r.e.vly reduced,! ward, and being overtaken by the Planters on Horfe-tiie Country People could not ovc take them, tho' back, fought ftoutiy for fome time, and were all kill'd. they were difcover'd by the Sal'zbirrghers as they paf- ] on1 the fpot, the reft are yet untaken ; and in the fed by Ebenezer.

He immediately him, and a Coat faced with Velvet; amongtt the Ne- order-'d a Troop of Rangers to be ranged, to patrole groe Slaves, there are a people brought from the king- through Georgia, placed fome Men in the GarrifoiT dom of Ango'a in Africa, many of thefe fpeak Portu- at Paltchocolas, which was before abandont^. gue-ze, which language is as near Spanifh as Scotch is near which the Negroes formerly palled, h&ftf^ to Englifh, by realbn that the Portugueze have con- only place where Hoifes cm come to'fwim oveM^" fiderable fettlemenrs, and the Jefuits have a Million River Savannah for near i co Miles, order'd out the? and School in that Kingdom, and many thoufands of Indians in Purfuir, and a Detachment of theGarrifen  the Negroes thert profefs the Roman Catholick Reli- at Port-Royal to afiiit the Planters on any ocofioa,^ gion. Several Spaniards, upon divers pretences, have and publifh'd a Proclamation, ordering all the Con. - ftables, &c. of Georgia to parfue and feize all Negroes, with a Reward for any who fhould be taken. It is hoped thefe Meafures wi}i prevent any Negroes from getting down to the Spaniards. themfelves, fome Angola Negroes affembied, to the ^ number of twenty, and one who was called Jemmy, was their Caprain, they furpriztd a Warehoufe belonging to Mr. Hutchenfon, at a Place call'd Stone-how ; they there killed Mr. Robert Bathuril and-Mr. Gibbs, plmder'd the Houfe, and took a pretty many fmall Arms and Powder, which were there for file. Next they pknder'd and burnt Mr. Godfrey's Houfe, and killed him, his Daughter and Son. They then turned back,aod marched southward along fons Pons, which is the road through Georgia to Auguftine, they paffed Mr. Wallace's lavern about Day-break, and faid, they would not hurt him, for he was a good M-in' and kind to his Slaves, but they broke open and plun-der'd Mr. Lemy's Houfe, and kill'd him, his Wife, and Child. They marched on towards Mr.Roi�'s, re-I'olving to ki'l him, but he was faved by a Negroe, who having hid him, went out and pacified the others. Several Negae-joined them, they calling out,libeny, marched on with Colours difpiay'd, r.nd two Drums beating, purfuing all the white People they mtt with, and killing Man, Woman, and Child, when they could come up to them. Colonel Bull, Lieutenant-Colonel of South-Carolina, who was then riding along the Road, difcover'd them, was purfued, and with much difficulty efcaped, and raifed the Country .They burnt Colonel Hext's Houfe," and killed his Overfcer, and his Wife. They then bant Mr. Spry's Houfe, then Mr. Sacheverell s, and then Mr. Nafh's Houfe, all lying upon the Pons Pons Road, and killed all the white People they found in them. Mr. Bullock get oft", but they burnt his Houfe. By this time many of them were drunk with the Ram they had taken in the Honfes. They increafed every Minute by new Negroes coming to them ; fothat they were above fixty, fome fay a hundred; on which they halted in a-field, and let to dancing, finging and beating Drams, to draw more Negroes to them.thinking they were now victorious over the whole Province, having marched ten miles, and burnt all before them without pppofi-tion : But the Militia being raifed, the Planters withr great brifknefs purfued them,and when they came up, difmounting, charged them on Foot. The Negroes, were foon routed, though they behaved boldly j feveral being killed on the fpot, many ran back to their thither. Certain Negroes belonging to Captain Da-tvis efcap'd to Augulline, and were receiv'd there; they were demanded by General Oglethorpe, who fent Lieu.enant Demere to Auguftine, and the Governor allured the General of his fincere Friendfhip ; but at the fame time, {hewed his Orders from the. Court of Spain, by which he was to receive all run-away Negroes. Of this other Negroes having notice, as it is believi-d, from the Spanifh emifiaries, four or five, who were Cattle humeri, and knew the Woods, fome of wlioru belong'd to Captain Mackpherfon, run a-way with his Horfe, wounded his Son, and kili'd another Man. Thefe marched for Georgia, and were for fome time paft been ilroling about Carolina, two of them, who will give no Account of themfelves, have been taken up and committed to Goal in Georgia.
