Extracl of a Letter from Ratisbon, Dec. 4. ' Tho' you may have heard in general, that the Mini-ftry of the Dyet were divided in Otinion> concerning  the Declaration of M. de la Noue, you may not have been informed what were the different Sentiments on that ' Occafion, which I now fend you. Some were for receiving it provifionally, as anfwcring the End propofed by the States of the Empire, of maintaining a Neutrality with the neighbouring Princes. Others judged, that it could not be admitted without a previous Acknowledgement of tha Imperial Dignity, becaufe Pieces addrefted to the Dyet were not recievable unlefs the Dignity of the Eftablifhed Head of the. Germannic Body were acknow-' ledged by them.  Upon the Offer made by the Court of France, to comprehend the Brifgau and the Anterior Auftria in the Neutrality of the Empire, and give all the Security the Dignity of the French Crown would ad-' mit of; lome were of Opinion, that this Declaration might be received as. a proper Opening to lead to fome more extenfive Explications upon what regards the Im-' perial Dignity. Others added, in the fame View, that the Dyet might take upon it to tranfmit M. de la Noue's ' Declaration to Vienna, in order to know in what Manner the above Offer, regarding the Brifgau and Anterior Auftria, would be received by the Imperial Court. There*were alfo fome Minifters who excufed themfelves ' from declaring- on this Subject, till they knewgprecifely ' the Senfe of theiij feveral Courts. The Miniller of Brandenburgh thought'this Offer demanded the utmoft ' Regard from the States of the Empire, on Account of the Affurance given in it, that the Neutrality fhould be eftablifhed upon a folid Footing, and fecured againlt all Attack.' LONDON. The principal Heads of Accufation againft Count Bian-cani, who was beheaded on the 26th of November, N.S. at Milan, were, 1. That he hadentred into the Service of the Enemies of his Auguft Sovereign. 2. That he had procured Subfiftance for tnofe Enemies. And, 3.

Upon the Elector of Bavaria's difbanding a Part of his i Troops, the King of Pruffia has fent an Officer into his Dominions, in order to engage in his Service all the m.oit able Men, that are willing 10 continue in the Army : Whence it appears, that this Monarch, notwithftanding the Satisfaction lately given him, has no Thoughts of making any Reduction in his own Troops.
