There is much Talk here of a Suf-penfian of Arms in Italy, but there feems to be no foiid Ground for that Report. The King of Pruffia has made a frefh Declaration to the Miniftry, that he will obferve religioufly the laft Treaty of Peace, and that, to remove all Occafion of Umbrage, he would* fend back into their Quarters the Trolrips in Silefiaj which had been affembled only to be reviewed. 'Tis obferyetJ, that, this Declaration has entirely effaced all the Imprefllrios, which falfe Reports had made upon fome Minds, and that toe Harmony between this Court and that of Berlin feems to be perfect. Drefiten, Aug- 14. The Aflembly, of ,States is to fepa-rate this Day, after having in form taken leave of his Majefty. They ha�bgranted the Court 9 Millions of Crowns, and we are aMured/ that in order-to raife that Sum, a Ca-pitation-and-aTax upon Effects will be levied, to begin the firft of January n*xt, and continue nine Years. It is pretended'here, that the March of ?5',ooo Ruffian Troops thro' Courland, Poland, arid a Part of the King of Pruffia's dominions, into the Einpire, is a Thing decided; but V/hat is faid ugon t^his Subject is very confufed. In the mean time Couriers' go and come fre^bently, and moft of |j their Difpatches are {aid to relate to a general Peace. Hano-vtr,.Aug.\6.

Two Abbe's have been imprifoned at Paris for having undertaken to predict the Death of the Dauphinefs, and alfo for foretelling the End of the World. The States General talk of fending a-Minifter to Madrid, where they have had none Refident for five Years paft ; and it is expected that M. Calkoen will be nominated to that Office. The Wife of a young Mafon, at Brieg in Siiefia, has brought into the World five Children within 12 Months, viz, Two Boys in Auguft 1745, an(* ^ree ^irls in Juty 1746. They were all Chriftened except one Daughter. Yefterday Morning about 6 o'clock One Thoufand of the Foot Guards, a Troop of Life Guards, and one of Horfe Grenadier Guards* march'd thro' the 'Jity toTower* Hill, to attend the Execution of the two Rebel Lords. Between 9 and 10 o'Clock they were both brought from the Tower by the Principal Keeper of the Goal, and at the Bar were delivered into the Cuftody of the Sheriffs of London, from whence they walk'd thro' a Line made by the Guards, to a Houfe belonging to the Mercers Company, two Rooms of which were hung with Black. Soon after 12 o'Clock the Earl of Kilmarnock, walk'd along the Gallery, made from the faid Houfe to the Scaffold, attended by the Rev. Mr. Fofter, and another Divine ; when he came on the Scaffold he bow'd to thePeople, (the greateft Number, perhaps, ever feen tsgether.) His Lordfhip made a fhort Speech, in which he acknowledge the Wickednefs of the Crimes he had committed againft his Majefty, and his Country, in being concerned in the late unnatural Rebellion ; he then pray'd very devoutly, and his Behaviour was fo much the Chriftian and Gentleman, that it drew Tears from thoufands of the Spectators. He then took off his Cloaths, gave fome Money to the Executioner, and kneeling down laid his Head on the Block ; but being told that his Arms were placed fo as that they muft be cut at the Time the Blow was given, he defired they would place them properly, and then laid his Head down a fecond time, and at one Blow it was fe-ver'd from his Body, except a Bit of the Skin. The Head wasinftantly wrap'd up in a Piece of Scarlet Bays, put into his Coffin with the Body, and carried away in a Hearfe to .the Tower. The Executioner was obliged to fliift himfelf, by reafon of the quantity of Blood that flew over him j and the Scaffold in the mean.time was cTeln*d. Then the Lord Balmerino came on the Scaffold, drefs'd in his Regimental Cloaths, which was Blue fae'd with Red, and alfo bow'd to the People j but otherwife behav'd very different from Lord Kifmarnock. He walk'd round tbp-il Scaffold, read the InfcViptiori on his Coffin, faid it WJisj right, took the Ax in his Hand and view'd it, ther^la^d  his Head on the..BFock, and faid it would fit very well. He then took a Paper out of his Pocket and read ft which contain'd a kind of Juftification of what he had!; done, and then deliver'd it to fome-' Perfon near hkn After which he pull'd off his Cloaths in a hurry, put on \ a Pkid Ca�, and kneeliHg,ddwn pot his Head on the'BJsck, \ and in a very fhort time made the Signal for the Exteu turner to do'his Office, wWh wa^ilpne accordingly*'.but| had three Strokes before his Head was fcver'd from his: .Bady. He died with undaunted Courage and Resolution, and feem'dnot in the l^aft concsrn'd.-TNor were the genera-iity of the Spe&ators for him. * The Lord Balmerino, Anceftor of him beheaded Yefter-; * day, was Secretary of State to King James I. and was? � jtried at St. A-ndjew's in Scotjand, March 10, 1609,!
