Madrid, Fti. 6. The King, who interefts himfelf very much in the Misfortunes of the Republick of G�noa, has fent Orders to the Infant Don Philip to take the firfl Opportunity of fending Succours to that State by Sea, till the Situation of Aftairs will permit to relieve it by Land. Count Gages is expected here this Day, and we might have feen him foon&r..but for the. Badnefs of the Road5. The Levies of Recruits in this Kingdom go on with fuch Suecefs, that we expect to have all the Regiments complete by the 1 ft of April. Genoa, Feb.4. Bacchelippa, a rich Mule-keeper of the Valley of Polfevera, has been examined concerning the Intelligence carried on by the Inhabitants of that Valley with the Auftrians, and declares that the Contract was brought about by fome thoofands of Genouins in Hand, and the Promife of feveral thoufands more. Many have been taken up on the Account, and he has named a great niany more, who were concerned : All of whom the Af-iiembly of the People has condemned to the Gallies, as guilty of Treafon againft their Country. Novi, Feb. 7. General Schulemberg, at his Arrival here, rinding that the Troops had not Artillery enough for the Enterprize againft the Revolters, fent for 8 Pieces of Cannon 18 Poundere, and 6 Mortars from Pavia, and Part of the Artillery at- Gavi is to be employ'd to the fame Purpofe. M. de Botta, before he went to Pavia, had attempted by Reprefentations of Liberalities, to gain the principal Inhabitants of the Vailey of Pelfcvera, and engage them to ftivoor'the Meafures taken to reduce their Country to Tranquillity : But fome of thefe People having betray'd the reft, the Scheme did not take Effect., and it has been found neceffary on that Account, to change the Plan of Operations. From Generaf Browns Camp oft the Faro, Feb. 6. The French., on the other Side of this River, being in extreme Want of Provifions, a great Nomber of Dderters arrive to irs daily, chufing rather to venture drowning in the rapid Stream, as it has already happened to many, than to die with Hunger and M-ifery. Count Brown is erecting a Battery on the Banks of the Varo, near the Mouth, in order to beat down the Village of Sr. Lau ence, where the Enemy have a good Garrifon. Here being a Scarcity of Forage, moft of our Cavalry will march info Piedmont and Lombardy, that fufficifnt may be kft for the Horfes belonging to the Train of Artillery. Milan, Feb. 8. Befides the numerous Train of heavy I Artillery, that is fet out from Pavia for Novi, and the Battering Cannon that has been drawn out of Gavi, fome Reinforcements of Men are alfo expected in a few Days ; after which the Army will march for San Pietro d'Arens, in order to pufh the Operations with Vigour. In the mean Time, the Huffars and Warafdins make very fuccefs-ful Excurfions, and within a few Days came to a Town, where finding the Inhabitants in Arms, they put to the Sword all who made any Refiftance. Vienna, Feb. 15. The Emperor and Prince Charles in-terefted themfelves very much in the Affair of Baron Trenck, and the Emprefs fhewed him fo much Indulgence as to have his Procefs review'd a Third Time ; but it appeared fo much the worfe upon every Review, that the only Favour fhe could fhew him was to fpare his Life, and condemn him to perpetual Imprifonment. His Wealth, which in Land and Money, is valued at Two Millions, will be Half confifcated, and the other Half given to his Family, after paying his Debts, and deducing for the Charges of the Pxofecution. Berlin, Feb. 10. A Union has been formed between this City, Brefhu, Stettin, and Franckfoit upon the" Oder, with Regard to Commerce, which the Company propofe to extend all over the Baltkk, and into the Northern Seas. Is is judged that a great Saving will hence arife to his Ma-jefty's Subjects, by avoiding the Expencc they have hitherto been at in receiving,all their Merchandize upon Foreign-Bottoms. Paris, Feb. 24. Sunday lair, the King held a grand Council of State, and on Monday M. Saxe was at Court to aflift in a grand Council of War. We are affured, that this General, to whom the King has given the Nomination of the General Officers to ferve under him,Bwill fet out for the Low-Countries the Beginning of March, and that the King will foon follow him, in order to make the Campaign in Perfon. The Officers fr�m Brit any and Provence arrive here daily, in order to fet out for their feveral Corps in Flanders. The Marquis Doria, who is faid to have a Commiffion from the Republick of Genoa* is lately fet out from hence, and will, we hear, go firft to the Hague,.'and from thence to London, to folScit the Mediation of the Maritime-Powers with the CoHrt of Vienna. By Letters from Marfeilles, we are told, that 4000 of our Trrops, 2000 Spaniards, and tooo Volunteers, are embarked at Antibes for Genoa ; and fome report, that a Courier arrived at Verfailles has brought an Account that thofe Troops, efcorted by Nine of the King's Gallies, had efcaped the Englifh, and were happily arrived at Genoa ; but this Report is efteem'd premature. In the mean rime, 'tis certain, that the State of Genoa continues to prepare for a good Defence, refolving not to frbmit unlefs 12 of their Chiefs and three others now under Profecution, are difcharged out of Prifon. But it is equally true, that the Army of General Schulembergh is reinforced daily, and that he is preparing to reduce the City by Force. 'Tis faid, the King's Commandant in the Eafr-Indies has taken the Englilh Factory at Madras, and^all that belongs to it, computed at above 30 Millions : Bdt the more important this News is., the more need has it of Confirmation. Actions 1347 Livres 10 Sols. Rotterdam, Feb. 27. All the Advices we receive concerning the Dyke of the Leek make us fear an Inundation of the neighbouring Diftric^s, the Water being extremely high in fome Places.

We have received Advice from Breda, that M. du Thiel arrived therefrom Antwerp on Sunday Evening. But the Letter? from Paris lay, the Opening of the Conferences has not at all leflen'd the Ardour with which they prepare for the Opening the Campagin, and that all the Officers belonging fo the Army in Flanders have Orders to be at their Ppfts by the ift of April. They add, that this Army will amount to 250 Squadrons and 200 Battalions, the former of 150 Horft each, and the latter of 700 Men ; and that it had been refolved in a Grand Council of War, to come as foon as poffible to a decjfive Action in the Low Countries. The Prince of Birckehfeldt hai been nominated by the States General to command under the Prince ofWaldeck, as General of the Horfe;and the Prince of Hildburghaufen^General of Foot. LONDON. They write from Hamburgh, that Letters of the laft Date received there from Copenhagen caufe a Revival of the Report fome time ago fpread, that 12000 Danes will go into the Pay of the Maritime Powers. Thofe from Stockholm fay, that Count Teflin is not yet inverted with the Pod of Prefidcnt of Chancery, but that he is generally look'd upon as deftin'd for that high Employment. There is a Talk at Paris, that Marlhal Beljeifle. is expected there from Provence, and 'tis rumour'd will be fent co London, and from thence to Breda. In the mean rime, fomething extraordinary is threatned to follow the Retreat of the Auftrians over the Varq, Orders being fent for all the Militia of the Southern Provinces to join M. de Belleiile's Army, which is then to confift of 80,coo Men. It is faid the Auftrians are actually getting together in the Low Countries, in order to form a Camp in the Di-ftrict of Bois-le-duc.
