The Ob'ect of the Treaty of Alliance concluded, in the Month of March laft, between this Court and that of Vienna, and the End of the Engagements entred into between the two Courts, are explained in the 3d and 6th Articles of the faid Treaty, which contain the whole Spirit of it. Article III. ' As the principal View in this Alliance is to guard re-' ciprocal!y againft all Attacks and Damages whatfoever, � and as each of the High Contracting Parties defires no-  thing more earneftly, than to accomplilh, at all Times, 4 this mutual Engagement, in the moft ufeful and advanta-4 gious Manner to the faid Allied Parties, according to 4 Means God has put into their Hands} for this Reafon it 4 is agreed, by the prefent Article, that, if it fhall happen, 4 that her Imperial Majefty cf all the Ruflias (hall be at-4 tack'd orinquieted by any one whomfoever, in her Em-  pires, Provinces, Territories or any other Pofleflions, fo 4 that her Imperial Majefty of all the Ruflias thinks it ne-4 ceffary to claim the Succour of her Allies, her Imperial 4 and Regal Majefty the Emprefs of the Romans, fliall fend 4 har, within the Term of Three Months, reckoning ' flora the Day of the Requifition, a Succour of 30,000 4 Men, 20,000 Foot and 10,000 Horfe, which Auxiliary 4 Corps cf the Emprefs-Queen fhall remain in the Service ' of her Imperial Majefty of all the Ruflias as long as the 4 faid Attack or Vexation fhall fubfift. 4 On the other Hand, if her Imperial and Regal Ma-4 jefty the Emprefs of the Romans, lhall be attacked or in-4 quieted by any one whomfoever, in her Kingdoms, Prs-  vinces, States, or other Hereditary Poffeffions, fo that 4 (he fhall find it necefi'ary to require the Succour of her  Ally, her faid Imperial Majefty of all the Ruflias, fhall, 4 in like Manner, fend her theabovementioned Number of 4 30,000 Men, within the Space of Three Months from 4 the making of the Requifition ; which Auxiliary Corps  fhall remain to her Majefty the Emprefs-Queen from her 4 Imperial Majefty of all the Ruflias, as long as fhe fhall ' continue to be attacked or difquieted. On which Occa-' fion it has been regulated by the High Contracting Par-' ties, " That this Alliance, with Refpeft to lending the " Succours above fpecified, fhall not extend, with regard " to either of the Parties, if the Empire of h;r Imperial " Maj;fty of all the Ruflias fcould be attacked by Perfia, or the States of her Imperial and Regal Majefty the Emprefs of the Romans in Italy fhould be a tacked : Nor is this Engagement to reach to theWar which now ; exifts in Italy, nor to any other War which may arife between her la'd Imperial and Regal Majefty and the Crown of Spain." , ' However, the High Contracting Powers have agreed, 'J hat in Cafe her Imperial and Regal Majefty fhould be attacked in Italy, tho' fhe muft indeed require any Succours for the Defence of thofe States, yet her Imperial Majelly of all the Ruflias fhall keep .ready a Corps of 30,000 Men, 20,000 of Foot, and io,oooof Horfe.

' The publick Papers have feveral Times made mention ' of certain Declarations, faid to be made by Count de Po-' devvils, Envoy Extraordinary from the King of Pruflia to 4 the Imperial Court, and other Pruffian Minifters, on Ac-4 count of the Paflage of the Varo. But we are now well ' allured that thofe Declarations were never made, nor any 4 Thing like them, and that all which has been faid on 4 that Subject is mere Fiction. Tho' his Pruflian Ma-' jefty cultivates with the Court of France the Friendfhip 4 and good Intelligence mutually eftablifhed between the 4 two Courts, he is not the lefs refolved to obferve exactly 4 the Neutrality he has embraced, and to fulfill, with the 4 utmoft Punctuality, the Engagements be entered into by 4 the Treaty of Drefden. But fuch Declarations as have 4 been given the World were incompatible with fuch Nejj^ 4 trality} whence it neceflarily follows, that they are 4 merely the Works of Invention. LONDON.

We are affured, that the States General have countermanded the Orders given to fome of their Men of War, defign'd for the Weft-Indies, in order that they may be able to form a Squadron at Spithead early in the Spring. It is Slfo faid, that their High Mightineffes have given Directions to the Officers of their Land-Forces to comi' their Regiments by the Beginning of March. It is faid, that the Auftrians have quell'd the Diftur-bance at Genoa, and executed Twelve of the Ringleaders; but there can be no Certainty of this till the Arrival of the Dutch Mail due on Monday next.
