The Fanny,.Middfcton, from Antigua, is arrived at Antigua. ^ Yefterday was delivered the Mail due on Friday. n Peter/burgh, July 12. 'Tis faid, that the Activijy and Succefs of the approaching Diet of Poland, will depend chiifly on the Negotiations of the Count de Vitzhum, who is coming hither with the Character of Arnbaflador-Extraordinary. All that we know concerning the Imperial Army affembled in Livonia is, that the Cavalry have Forage only to the End of July, and that Orders have been given to exercife frequently all the Corps, both Infantry and Horfe, that cornpofe it. M. D'Allion having lately received a Courier from VerSailles, we are a/lured, he has told our Ministers, � That his moft Christian Majefiy has * been much Surprised to hear, that according to the gene- * ral Report, the numerous Troops which the Emprefs has � affembled for fome Time pall, upon the Frontiers of Po- * land, were defigned to act offensively againft FranCe, in * favour of the Gbarts of Vienna and London, notwith-' (landing the repeated Declarations of his Ministers, con-' ceming his Majefty's DiSpofkion to accept the Mediation * offered by RoSha for an Accommodation, while the Courts * both of London and Vienna had abfolutely refufed to 4 liften tc her Imperial Majefty's pacific Intentions.' It is not yet known what Anfwer was given to this Minister ; but we are perfuaded, that whatever may be the Reflations of the Court, they were not taken till after mature Deliberations, and will not be departed from, whatever Representations may be made to the contrary. Stockholm, July 19. It is pretended, that the great Armaments cf Ruffia, which mil continue, begin to excite the Attention of this Court, especially fince it Is given oat, that feveral Ruffian Garrifons upon our Frontiers' have been reinforced. Certain, however, it is, that the Ruffian Mi-nifters from Time to Time renew the ftrWgeft Affurances that this Kingdom has abfolutely nothing to fear frofii thofe Armaments ; and we perceive, that the French Emiflaries are the only Perfons who fpread the contrary Reports, in order, if poffibie, to fet our Court againft that of Peterf-burgh, and by that means carry her own-Point. We hear from Gottenburgh, that another Fire has broke out ther�, but that fucheffe&ual means were taken to ftop its Pro-grefs, that only one Houfe was reduced to Aflies. By the combuftible Matters that are found in many Places, this is thought tojbe the Work of fome Incendiary, and a Reward of 500 Silver Crowns is offered for any one who can difco-verthe Offender. Raujbon, July 23. We are aflUred, that the 5000 Men which the Eleftor of Bavaria is fending into the Pay of the Maritime Powers, will begin their March the 10th of next Month, The Troops of the Circle of Bavaria are affo in Motion, and the Contingent of the Bifhoprick of Paffau is already arrived here. It is faid, that the King of Pruffia has exhorted feveral Princes of the Empire to follow this Example, promising ,to do the fame himfelf. Vitnna, July 20. The Commiflioners appointed by the Emprefs-Queen, to try Prince Caracu55eno, have made Report, that jt appears by his own Letters, that his Defign was to ftir up the Porte againft her Imperial Majefty, in order to avail himfelf of the Qumel between them to get Poffeffion of Walachia ; and that therefore he is guilty of High-T reafon, and deferves to die, unlefs her Imperial Majefty, moved by her own Clemency, will pleafe to change that Punrfhment into perpetual Imprifonmerrt. Franckfert, July 27. T,he EinpreSV-Queen has caufed Reprefentations to be made to the affaciated Circles, by her Minifter in this City, that as new Circumstances may accrue wherein the French Troops tniy re-enter the Empire, it feems to her neceflary, lor the Good of the Gfcr- . mannic Body, to agree, that If in fnch Cafe any one of the Circles fhould be attack'd, the other Circles Shall immediately repair to its Defence, with, all its Power. After fome Deliberations upon this Matter, it was decreed that the Circles fhould mutually affift eachttther On all Occaflcms, wherein any one of them might be attack'd or infulcgdfy any Foreign Power whatsoever. The Empire has had a confiderable Lots in the Death of the Bllhop-Prince of Bamberg and Wurc&burgh, who died of an Apoplexy on the 24th Inftant, aged 72. This Prince, of the illuftrious Hdufe of Schonborn, filled up the Place of Vice-Chancellor of the Empire for many Years at Vienna, and refigned it only to take Poffeffion of thefe Dignities, which rendered him one of the moft considerable Spiritual Princes of the Empire. He was a perfect. Mafter of the Laws and Conftitutisns, as well a* 6f the Interests of Germany; and has given fuch Advice, en many Occasions, as might, if followed; have contributed ef-fcftually to the Advantage of the Germannic Body. Hague, July 3 1. Yefterday a Courier paffed by here from London for Vierina, to inform the Imperial' Court of the Meafures which the Britifh Court thinks proper to take upon the Death of the King of Spain. Another fet out on the fame Occafion with very important Difpateaes for Turin. Paris, July 25. It has been refolved, that the young Princefs, of whom the Dauphitiefs was lately delivered, (ball be provisionally diftinguiSheii by the Title of Madame. Another Courier is arrived at Versailles from the Bifhop of Rennes, the King's Minifter at Madrid. His Difpatchef bear Date the 12th, and confbm the Contents of the preceding, with regard to the new Kih'g's Dispositions. "Tis certain, that his Catholic Majefty appears firmly refolved te maintain the Engagements that fubflft between his Houfe and-the Crown of France; but he had fignified, *t the fame Time, that being filled with true Affe&ion for $ie Spanish Nation, he will endeavour to make it en^otfpat foon as poffibie, the Advantages of Peace; provident can obtain it upon honourable Conditions, without ^Hu-dice to. the interest of the Princes to whom he is Otti^d Blood. .v U N D 6 H, - A large Body of the Ruffian Troops are drawing together in the Neighbourhood of Feterfburgh, in order to be ready td go on board the Fleet, if the Emprefs mail think proper: Count Beftucheff, the Ruffian Prime Minifter, is quite recovered of his late Indif^ofition. The King of Denmark has refolved fb to augment the Marine of his Kingdom, that he may have it of 20 Men of Wat ready to put to Sea upon Occafion; and theriecef-fary Orders are given to the Yards for that Purpofe. M. D'Argenlon has again- applied to M. Van Hoy tb forward a Letter from the King of France to his Britannic Majefty: But as this is only on Matter of pure Ceremony, the Notification of the Birth of a Princefs, he has run ruo Danger of Cenfure in taking the Talk upon himfelf. . They write frofli Munich, that the Affair of the Subfidy Treaty had been concluded three Weeks focmer than It was, if it had not been trarerfed by an Exprefsirom one of the Secretaries of theCourt, who refides with a Foreign Power. This Exprefs faid pofitively, that a Neatrality was cod-cluded between the Court cf France and the States-General ; and by the next Poft the fatoe Secretary took upotl him to confirm his former News, which made the Court defer fenteriag into any Engagements till the Fad was fulfy clear'd up, which now appears to be only a Report. Tlte prSvIIionally Convention between the Elector of Bavaria and the Court of Vienna, has been turned into a formal Treaty, in which it is Stipulated, among other Things, that the two Courts.fhall make one common Caufe between them of Whatever regards the Good and Tratwjaillity of the Empire. From the London Gazette. , , Vienna, July 23, N.S.

At the Cant at Bortklohh; July 27, U.S. Since my laft. of the 24th Inftant, our Army has made two Marches, the firft to Sandhoven, and the Second to this Place $ we halt To-morrow, and then proceed toward. Namur; and hope to be in time for the Saving of that Town. We have taken Poffeffion of Arfchott, arid Lewe; whilft the French poflefled themfelves of Halen and Dieft.
