The 29th paft a Provedbtor from the Court of Saxony arrived here, to prepare Quarters for Madame the Dauphinefs and her Retinue. The Inn he has hired is the Sign of the Kingcf England. Her High-nefs wiil arrive here the 19th, and {layout one Day before fee con;inues her Journey for Strafburgh.

Since the Departure of Count Cobentzel for Mentz, mod of the Miniflers of the Affociated Circles have received Orders from their Principals to acknowledge him for Minister pf the Imperial Court, and to confer whh him in that Quality upon whatsoever Proportions he may make. It is forefeen however, that tnis Minister will not bring thefe Circles fo eafily as he could wifll, into Refolutions conformable to the Sentiments of his Court. �Berlin, Dec. %\. The King, in his great Equity, having refolved to put the Adminiftration of juftice upon a better Footing, has directed the Baron de Cocceis, Private Minister of State and War, to fettle that Affair; which he will foon enter upon, in Conjunction with the chief Ma-giltrates of his Majelly's feveral German Province-. Paris, Dec. 30. Tne Affair of Genoa, which is Hill reprefented under various Faces, has altered nothing in the Operations of the Austrian General in Provence, who raifes Contributions by his feveral Detachments, all round the Country. Our Reinforcements continue to arrive in the Army, but very fiowly and greatly fatigued ; which caufes Abundance of Defeners among thofe Troops. On the 19th the Englifh got PofTeffion of the Iflands of St. Marguerite and St. Honorat. The Difpatches by the laSt Courier out of that Country have fiot yet been made Pub-lick. From the London Gazette. Munkb, Dec. 29, N.S. This Day we have receiv'd Intelligence from Italy, of the Surrender of Savona to she Troops of the King of Sardinia, which cannot fail to be attended with great Confequences with Regard to the War in Provence, as well as the Cty and Territory of Genoa. Hague, fan. 6, N.S. The Advices about General Brown's Army are, that his advanced Guard was at Brig-nole, and it is faid that forhe of his Parties had beaten up feveral Ports of the Enemy within four Leagues of Aix, and that he had ordered the Parliament of that Town not to quit it. The Surrender of Savona is confirmed. Letters from Geneva of the 28th paft mention, that they had received the News there of the Surrender of Antibes ; and from Italy that General Botta was retired to Gavi, and had been attacked at Ponte Decimo by a Body of armed Peafants ; that he had left 6oo Sick at Voltagio, and that they knew nothing at his Camp on the 13th, what Fate the three Regiments which he had left at Befagno had met with. They write from Florence of the 17th paft, that five Couriers have gone through there in a few Days te Naples, and that they had been followed by Prince Doria, who polled through without flopping any where. Count Waflenaer is gone back to' Breda, whither M. Puyfieux is likevvife returned. LONDON. Some Relations inform us, that a few Days before the Infurredlion begun at Genoa, there had been warm Debates in the Senate, concerning the Maintenance of the Auftrian Troops ; that fome of the Members almoft came to Blows, and that the Doge, feeing the Party in Opposition to General Botta's Demands llronger by a third than his own, broke up the Aflembly without fuffering any Re-folucion to be tsken. It is added, that feveral Appearances in this Infurreclion make it now fufpecled, there may b: greater Perfons at the Bottom of it, than was at nrlVr apprehended ; Such as, the Mob afiembling at the Sound of a Bell ; the taking Poffeflion of the moil proper Gate to javour their Deligns ; the Sparing all the Palaces, except a few which fecm to have been marked out ; the Inaction of the Genoefe 1 roops, and the Difcovery of fome of their Officers among the Infurgents; the Precaution of fe.zing the Poll-Office, and getting into their Hands all the means of Intelligence ; with fome other Particulars, uhich feem to be d elated by other Ideas than thofe of a Headlefs Populace f A Felucca from Genoa is arrived at Leghorn, having on board a large Quantity of Money belonging to the Marquis de Bona, and a great many Genoefe and other Families are daily coming into that Port: But the Emperor hath fent Orders to ieize all the Genoefe, and fequelter their Effects. Some Lefers from the Hague reprefent the Affairs cf Genoa in as bad a State as poffible ; which, join'd to the Conquefl of Tufcany, meditated by the Neapolitans, mufl greatly perplex the Court of Vienna, and in fome Meafure anfwer the Defign of the Common Difturber of Ch'rHFen^ dom. There are.fuch military Preparations making in Denmark, as make it conjectured, that in cafe a Piece be not concluded this Winter, his Danifh Majefly will certainly fend a Body of Auxiliaries into the Service of the Maritime Powers.
