'Tisfaid the Emprefs has refolved fodifpofe of all the vacant Employments in this vaft Empire on the Anniverfary of the Grand Prince's Birth-day, who enters his Nineteenth Year on the 21ft of February next. The Quarters of the Imperial Troops in Livonia and Courland are fo regulated, that the Army can affemble again within a few Days. The Field Artillery will continue atLiebau. The Englifhand Dutch Factors have refolved, with her Imperial Majefty's Permiffion, to bring hither fome fkilful Perfons, in oider to fend them into a D'ftrict of Aua, the People of which have lately fubroitted to the Emprefs, to examine the Earth theie, which is faid to be exceeding proper for manufacturing a Kind of Glafs, not inferior in Beauty to Chryftal. Some Specimens of it have been, already produced, but the Court do not feem inclined to make any Advantage of the Difcovery. Warfanu, Oft. 16. There have been other great Agitations for feveral Days, in the Houfe of the Nuncios,' before it was agreed to repair to the Senate, and prefent them-felves before the King* which, at laft, was dons Ycfterday with great Solemnity. The Affair of the Legitimation of the Nuncios having been accommodated on the 7th, by the Interpofition of the Marfhal, on the 8th another Subject of Difpute arofe, upon the Complaint of the Nuncio of Rawa, that the principal Employments of the Kingdom were in the Hands of Foreigners. This Nuncio defired the Msrfhal to make the proper Reprefentations ta the King upon that Subject, that his Majefty might be induced to bellow thore Places upon Natives of the Kingdom ; declaring at the fame Time, that if this Grievance was not remedied, he protefted beforehand againll all the Deliberations of the Dyet. To this Difficulty was joined that concerning the Precedence between the Palatines cf Cracow and Pofnania. Thefe two Subjects were again canvafs'd the next Day, and the Senators were obliged to interpofe, in order to engage the Nuncio of Rawa not to impede the Dyet in proceeding upon the important Subjects they came to deliberate about. Madridt OS. 10. The Marquis de Caftellar and the Count de Ceyra, who have been employ'd in the Armies in Italy, arrived here the third Inftant from Barcelona, and had the Honour the next Day to wait upon their Ma-jefties. Count de Congie, Deputy from the States of Savoy, arrived here the fame Day, with a private Commif-fion, relating to Orders that have been fent into thatDutchy for preparing Winter-Quarters for an Augmentation of French and Spanish Troops. Tlie King held Yeiterday a Chapter of the Golden Fleece, in which the Dukes of Montalegre and Albuquerqae were honoured with that Order. The Ceremony of their Majeftits Public Entry was this Afternoon performed with great 'Magnificence. They went out the'Backway thro' the Gardens of Buen-Retiro,, came in at the Gate of Aleaca, drawn by n fine Set of Tyger Horfes, prefented by the King of Portugal; pafs'd through the principal Streets cf the City, affifted at Te Deum in the Church of St. Mary, ahdthen returned. All the Place Major and the chief Streets Bre this Evening illuminated. To-morrow a Grand Mafquerade, of above 2000 Perfons, will pafs before their Majifties on Hbrfe-back, and on the 13th there will be a Bull-Feaft in the Flace-Major. The new Treaty of Alliance, which the Bifhpp of Rentes has negociated between this Court and that of Versailles, is almoft concluded ; and will be figned without Delay. The two Courts agree therein, upon all the Mea-fures neceffary to be taken for their common Interefts, and for the Succefs of the new Operations in Italy, in cafe the Negociations of Peace do not anfwer to the Hopes that have been formed of them. The King has writ a Letter to the Infant Don Philip, fignifying to him his Majefty's Pleafure that he fhould continue at hand to rejoin the Army as foon as Circumftances will permit, it being his Royal Determination to employ all poffible Efforts to procure him a fuitable Eftablifhment. This Article is one of thofe which the King alfo defires may be infilled on at the Conferences of Breda. The Reports that have been fpread in Foreign Countries of an approaching Accommodation between this Court and that of Turin are entirely groundlefs, there not having been any Overtures upon that Subject: And tho' the Letters written on both Sides, upon the Death oPthe late King, were conceived in the molt obliging Terms, fuch Things ought to be looked upon only as decent Cuftoms. Turin, 08. 16. The King, who on the t'thhadhis Quarters at Menton, continued his March on the 12 th towards Nice. His Majefty has left the Engineer-General Bertole, with three Battalions, to befiege the Caftle of Ventimiglia. The French and Spaniards have been dif-lodg'dfrom the Poft of Turbie; but they have ftilltbe Polls of Trinity, Caftel nuovo, and Apremont, on this Side the Var. General Gorani was killed in going to reconnoitre one of thefe Polls. The Marquis de Botta has fent the King the Plan of the Operations in Provence, for which 40 Auftrian Battalions and fome Cavalry, with 15 Battalions of Piedmontefe, are appointed. Vienna, Oa. 19. 'Tis faid the Court has refolved to infill abfolutely upon the Reftitution of the Auftrian Low-Countries, in the Condition they were fecured to the Au-giift Houfe of Aullria by former Treaties, and upon the iame Footing they were poffefied before the prefent War ; and that this Reftitution fhall not be a Condition of the Peace, but one of the Preliminary Articles. We are alfo aflured, that the Town and Marquifate of Final will be infilled on in the fame Manner for the King of Sardinia, as well as the quiet Pofleffion of all his Dominions in Italy, which belong'd to him before the War broke out. In order the more eafily to come at the End propofed, it is confirmed, fince the Arrival of a Courier from London, that the Expedition againft Provence will be immediately executed with Vigour, and that the Invafion of Naples will be laid afide in favour of it. Paris; OS. 28. The King has given Orders upon the Royal Treafury for ^800,000 Livres to be iffued to the Pretender's Eldeft Son, in order to fumifh him with a new Equipage, which he very mnch wants. Both he aid his Brother lodge at prefent in the Palace of Fontainbleau, but we hear, that the King has granted the former a Pen-fion of 600,000 Livres per Annum, and an Apartment at St. Germain-en-Laye. They write from Provence, that the King of Sardinia has re-taken the whole County of Nice, which our Troops abandoned to repafs the Var. Toulon, and the other Places thereabouts, are fortifying with, all Diligence, and Troops and Money continually arrive in that Country from Spain. Several Parties of the Enemy have already raifed Contributions upon fome of the Frontier Villages. The Women of Fortune at Vannes, are retired to Ren-nes, for fear of the Englifh, 15 of whofe Ships appeared before Granville, but letired without attempting any Thing. Befides 20 Pieces of Cannon, which they found on Quiberon Point, they took the 64 Pieces out of the Ship Coridor, which the Captain had not Time either to land or nail up. Two Englifhmen, who came over with the young Pretender, are committed Prifoners to the Caftle of Saumur for a Defign to affaffinate him ; and a Lord, who intended to have delivered him, dead or alive, to the Ccjurt of London, having been detected, is arretted for it a! St. Maloes. The King treats that Adventurer with the Title of Prince of Wales, and Royal Highnefs. A good many Hawkers have been taken up for crying about a more circumftantial Account of the Actien of Roucoux than the Court thought proper to publifh, and the Piece has been fuppreffed. Hague, Oil. 30. The private Conferences between the Earl of Sandwich and M.dePuifieux at Breda, having made it neceffiry for thofe Minifters to receive new In-llructions from their Courts, they have each difpatched a Courier for that purpofe. While their Return is waiting, Lord Sandwich has thought proper to make a Tour hither, and has been in Conference with the principal Members of the Government upon the Affairs at Breda. The Penfionary Gilles is alfo arrived here, and To-morrow, or the next Day at fartheft, we expect Count Harrach ; after which there is room to hope we may know fome-thlng of the Nature and Conditions of the Armiftice between the Powers at War. The principal Queftion is, whether it fhall be general, or rellrained to certain Terri- tories. Count Waffenaer continues at Breda, in order to-wait for the Opening- of the Conferences. LONDON. From the London Gazette. Louijhurgb, Sept. 18. A Party of the French Indian.-, undifcovered, fell upon a- Detachment of Soldiers that were at the Ifland of St. John's, and cut eff upwards of Thirty of them. Louifintrghy.Sept. 19. We have received News here of the Arrival of > the French Fleet and Forces under the Command of the Duke d'Anville upon the Coaft of Acadia. But as mod of our Works are compleated that were neceffary for the prefent Defence of this Place, we are under no Apprehenfion from him. Florence, Oa. n. By Advices from Naples, an Order has been given there to fit out the Gallies and two Half-Gal lies,1 with all poffible Expedition, which, it is confidently iaid, are to cruize in the Channel of Piombino, to. oppofe the King of Sardinia's two Gallies, and to efcorte the Cotivoy of the Neapolitan Troops from Nice to Naples, for which Purpofe a confiderable Number of Transports had been affembled. Venice, OS. 14. The Auftrian Troops in their Paffage. thro' the Veroneie to Mantua, continue to come daily in. great Numbers �, within the laft Month there has pafled, above 12000. Two Regiments of Cavalry and two .of' Foot from the Rhine, have begun to enter the Tirol, and. after their Arrival the Auftrian? affirm that the Emprefs. will have Fourfcore Thoufand Men compleat in Italy. The Troops about Mantua have Orders to hold themfelves in Readinefs to march. The Advices of M. Botta'srefignirg the Command of the Army to General Brown are not yec confirmed. By the laft Accounts from the Spanifh Army, the Infant and the Duke of Modena were at Antibes, and it was fuppofed Don Philip would go to Madrid. The Duke of Modena has applied to the King of Sardinia for Paffports to return to Venice, but it is faid they have been refufed, from whence it is concluded that he will go to Paris to the Dutcheis. Hague, Nov. 1. N.S. Letters from Paris advife, that the Troops under General Sinclair were again re-imbarked ; and that (the Earl of Morton and his Family were committed to the Baftile, his Lordfhip's Paffport being expired; but the firft Article is contradicted by other Accounts. It is rumoured here, that an Action had happened on the Italian Side of the Varo, where the King of Sardinia in Perfon attacked M. Mailleboi*, and after an obftinate Engagement, forced him to pafs that River in great Confufion and with great Lofs; and that the Piedmontefe have taken. 2000 Prifoners. Plymouth, 061. 21.

This Ship was parted from the Duke d'Anville's Squadron by a violent Storm off the Ifland of Sable, about fix Weeks fince. The Prifoners report, that the faid Squadron was extremely fickly, and had loft great Numbers of Men in the Paflage. Laft Night his Majefty's Ship the Ambufcade arriv'd at this Port, and brought in with her a French Privateer call'd the St. Nicholas, which fhe took on Sunday Night off the Eddyftone. She mounts ten Carriage Guus, of 6 and 4 Pounders, and 11 Swivels, and had on board 100 Men. She was ten Days from Calais, and was bound to Cruize to the Northward, but was driven to the Weftward by contrary Winds. Port/mouth, 03. 23. His Majefty's Ship the Invernefs has taken and fent in hither a French Ship from Martinico, laden with Sugar and Cotton. They write from Hamburgh, that the King of Pruflia has again affured the Court of Vienna, that it has no need to take Umbrage at his new Military Preparations, he being refolved to fulfil religioufly his Engagements; and that he has made feveral of his Subjects, who talked too freely upon that Head, feel the weight of his Indignation ; among whom one Ferber, a Privy Councellor, hath fuf-fer'd Death, as guilty of High Tfeafon. Yefterday the Weft-India Mail arrived from Plymouth, which was brought by the Countefs of Leicefter Packet, who left Jamaica the 20th of Auguft, and was convoy'd thro' the Windward Paffage by his Majefty's Sloop Merlin, who was attack'd by a French Privateer, who pour'd a whole Broadfide into her ; but the Merlin return'd the Compliment, and in a very (hort time took her, and carried her to Jamaica.
