Madrid,, Nov. 2Q> In the Conferences that were held upon the Propofiti ons made by the Court of Lifbon, concerning an Accommodation with the Courts of Vienna and London, the following Refolutions are faid to have been taking, and we hear they are fince fent to Lisbon by a Coir-iter, viz. ' That it & with much. Satisfaction the King  learns the Inclination which the Courts of Vienna and '� London (hew for the Re*eftabltflim�nt of Peace ; that his � Majefty is ftill of the fame Defirer to fee the Affairs of '* Europe conduced to that falatary End ; but that the Ho-4 nour of his Crown does not permit him to abandon the  Interefts of a Prince, who is fo dear to him a,s the Infant  Don Philip j That his Majefty knows how much is dire  to the Engagements contracted with an Allyv and is  therefore refolved not to depart from thofe he had en-' tered into with the Grown of Frances But that as fotm � as the Courts of Vienna and London will propofe fuch  Expedients as are compatible with the two Obje&s, the  King will make it appear^ that his Wifhes to reltorc the 4 general Tranquillity are not lefs remarkable, either for � the Extent or Juftice of them, "than thofe of any Power  whatsoever.' But as the Resolutions were taken adder the old Administration, they may be no Rule for the Language we are to cxpeft under * new-Minifter. Hamburgh) Dee. 19. We learn, by. private Letters from Stockholm, by Way of Straelfund, that the Fermentation, which for f6me Time has agitated both the States and the Two Courts in that'Country, was occasioned by the Steps which the Emprefs of RujEa has taken to remove every Thing that might interrupt the good Intelligence between the two Nations. This. Priacefs having been informed,, that the Count de Teffin, who has always been efteemed a declared Parti zan of France, had not changed kis Syftem fiats tka War in Finland, but that, on the. contrary* he had taken Advantage of the Aecefs, which his. Place of Grand-Majter procures him to his Royal Highnefi, toin-Tpire this Prince with Sentiments agreeable to his own, her Imperial Majefty had'written fevers) Letters to intreat his Highnefs to remove this^Mtnifter from his Court and Per-lon. The Prince has continually owned in his Anfwers, that he owed his Fortune and Ejevasion to the Emprefs of Ruffia ; that he weufd. always make it his Duty, by all the Returns he was capable of, to teftify his fincere Ackoow-i ]edgement,and, in particular, that there was no Sacrifice he would not make to preferve her Majefty's Friendfhip, and (hew the Advantage of it to the Kingdoms, which he was called to by her Majefty Y P/rote&ibrK-"Bat all that, had been reported to her Majefty to the Difadvantage of Count Teffin,. was the Work of Envy and Caiorany, he be^eeched her to excufe him from Sacrificing, a good Subject and a faithful Minifter to the Jealoufyof hjs Enemies,.

It is even faid, that it -- he has delivered to the King a Writing under the Emprefs's own Hand. It is not yet known, what Part the Prince Succeffor will take upon thefe Warm and reiterated In-ftances ; but as the Affair has been laid before the Secret Committee, and is to be fent to the King of Pruffiay it feems as if his Highnefs thinks it too delicate to atl in it without Advice.
