Jt was with g'od Reafon faid, that the Duke Regent intended te fignaliee his cnteridg upon the Adminiftration by many-Acts of Grace. He has pubblh'd a Manifeito, in which he pardons, in the Name of the Emperor, all fuch as are liable to fufTer any Ptnifhment on account of {art;cu!ar Crimes mentioned in the faid Manifefto. It is alfo laid, that tome Perfon will be recall'd fiom their Exile. The Duke Regent fcems to have notning in view but a pacifick Adminiliration, daring which he propofes to do all he can to put the Nation into a ftourifhing Condition, that the Emperor may, when he comes to a fit Age to take the Government upon himfelf, be p ea�'d with the Ule he has made of his Power.' At the fame time this Prince appears fodefixous of Peace, he does not neglect to provide for the fafety of the Empire ; on which account the, Troops wi!I remain upon, theitprefeat footing, and .txnfilt of 180000 Men j they wiD, if Need require, be augmented to 200000 Men. Some Men, of War and Frigates will be left at Crenftadt. The Duke being relolv'd to found his Regency on A#� 9/ Clemency and Goodnefs, is determin'd to abolifli certain Punifhmcnts which the extreme Rigour of amient Times eftablifh'd in RulEa Baron-de B.ron, Brother to the Duke Regent, is confirm'*! in the poftof Governor of Mnfoow, anu Commander in Chief of the Forces in arid near the Capital.

As Luxury. which fo greatly prcvail'd during the Reign of the late Empress, tended much to drain the Nation of i:s Cojn, by landing out, confidewbe fums to purchafe foreign Manufactures, it is refolv'd, in order to remedy that Inconvenience, to etlablifh Manufactures of different forts in the fevexaJ principal Provinces of the Empire.
