Genoa, Nov. c. We are told, that the Court of Vienna lias caufed* an Offer to be made to the Republick of an Alliance offenfive and defenfive, upon the fame Terms with that iL ^4d before engaged with France and Spain, and on that Condition to guarantee all its Dominions. But the Republick is faid to have given for Anfwer, ' That the * melancholy Expeneacft of What has paffed ought to ' reader her more circumfpedT, and had caufed her to re- * fblve, that whatfoever may pafs for the future, fhe will * always preferve an exact Neutrality.' This Refufal is faid to have been palliated with very refpedtful Representations, regarding the freflv Misfortunes to which fuch an Engagement would certainly expofe her, from her Neighbourhood and her Commerce with France, which is the Chief Source of her Riches. The � Marquis de Botta is faid to be more fevere upon this Reprefentation ; which, very much encreafes the Diftrefs of the Republick. Mian, Not'. 8.

There is a Talk of a very ftrong Declaration, which was to be made to the Miniftry, concerning the Invafion of Provence, and t>f an Anfwerequally vigorous from this Court; but it may be proper to wait the Confirmation of this, before we give it entire Credit. It does not appear however, that we fWl firffer ourfelves to be intimidated foas to exchange our Meafures that have been concerted ; but, on the contrary, all the Meafures lately taken, have no Tendency but to the ctmoft Vigour. The. Prince cf Hiiburghaufen will foon return into Croatia, m order to march into Italy half the Regiment of Lycantans, which confifts of no lefs than fix (large Battalions. We nave received here from Italy a great i Quantity of White and Bloe Cloth, which the Spaniards �abandoned at Genoa, and which will ferve to cloth the Croatswho have not yet any Uniform.
