Since the Arrival of the Penfionary Gilles, there have been feveral private Interviews between the Eari of Sandwich and the Marquis de Puyiieux, in or der to amove all Difficulties, upon the Matters that are to be treated of at the Opening of the Conferences. And in order to proceed therein with the more Succefs, the Mar quis de Puyfieux hath fent a Courier to Paris, whofe Return is expected with Impatience. One of the principal Points that they are now endeavouring to regulate, is, the Admif-lion of the Plenipotentiaries from the Emprefs and the King of Sardinia, without which it will be difficult to unite the different Objects that are to be difcufs'd in thofe Conferences. With regard tq the Armiftice, it is looked upon as near concluded, if it may take Place with regard to Italy, as well as e'fevvhere.

As all the vacant Places about the Court, are, by the faws of Swedes, to be always filled up before the Opening of a General Dyet, the King and Council have been v'ery bujy for fome Timepaft, mattending to-the Applications made on that Occafion, and chafing the proper Persons among the Candidates. The Neapolitan Troops, which were faid to have been forced by the French and Spaniards into Provence, embarked at Villa-Fraricha, and returned by Sea to Naples and Orbitello, whkhthey effected in Twelve Tranfporcs.'
