' The Preparations for the Marriage of the Grand Duke ' and Duichefs are carried on with all pofljble Expedition. ' The Feilivals and Entertainments to be given on this Oc-' cafion, will laft a Fortnight, and coft vail Sums, and will * exceed any thing of the Kind ever feen in Europe, in ' Point of Magnificence and Elegance. The Emprefs, ' whofe Maxims are* to make the People of her vaff. Do- * minions happy, had rather continue them in theEnjoy-' ment of the Sweets of Peace and Tranquillity, which ' feem to be banilhed from almolt all the other Courts and * States of Europe, and a good Part of Aha too, than to ' concern herfelf in the Quarrels of other Powers. ExtraS of a Letter from Amfterdam, Sept. 3, N.S. * We hear by Letters from Copenhagen, that an Ac- * commodation is on the Tapis baweoen that Court aud * the Prince of Holftein-Gottorp, in regard to the Dutchy � of Schlefwick : That the Reform in the Cavalry, which * was lately talked of, has already taken Place, and that * they^are actually making a Reduction in the Infantry. * Jt is faid his Danifh Majefty will employ this Saving in ' augmenting his Marine. * The laft Advices from Stockholm fay, the Marquis de * Laumarie, the French Embiflador, has received Orders * from his Court, to drop entirely the Affair of Cz, ain ' Dagenaer, whofe Conduct France difapproves. * War is actually begun between the Kings of Poland * and Pruflia. The Prufljan Troops have already entered * Saxony, and palled by Halle, fo that they were but two * Leagues from Leipfick. The next Letters will no doubt ' bring us an Account how much farther the Pruflians have * proceeded. It is eafy to perceive that the King of Pruf-' fia's main Defign in taking up Arms againft SaxoHy, is * to force the King of Poland to forfake the Queen of * Hungary's Caufe, and, in particular, to hinder him from � giving his Vote for the Grand Duke of Tufcany. From the Edinburgh Evening Couranf, Augufi 22. ' As to the Invafion, tho' we do no: chuie to infert * every Report, yet if common Fame be true, the Party * who have prefumed to difturb the Rtpofe of this King- * dom, are encreafed to z or 3000 Men ; that they have * erected their Standard ; that they have taken a Captain * of his Majefty's Forces Prifoner, belonging to Gaife'6 ' Regiment of Foot at Fort Auguftus, and that tho'feveral * are in a Difpohtion to join them, if they have not ac- * tually done it ; yet many Chiefs of the Highland Clans * have g�neroufly engaged to raife their Dependents, and one of the Prebends of St. Paul's, who had ftaid out later than he fhould have done, endeavouring to get in over the Gate in Amen-Corner, fell down on lome Iron fpiked Rails, whereon he was fourd hanging by the Watchmen, unable to affift himfelf, his Belly being fo wounded and tore, that Part of his Caul came out.
