A Deputation from the States of Bohemia, with Prince de Schwartzmbergh at their head, are coming here, to fetch the Crown of Bohemia, and carry it to the Caftle of Prague. We learn from Moldavia, that Prince Potem-kin, having fent one of his officers to the camp of the Grand Vizier, with an offer to enter into a direct negotiation with him, had, in confe-quence of a refufal, quitted his quarters and begun marching. ff'ar/a-w, July zi. The difpatches received from our Minirter at the Ottoman Court took up nearly the whole feffion of the Diet yefterday.

But thefe propofitions, though reprefented by our Miniiler as very advantageous, the Diet have rejected. Since the check which the Swedifh fleet met with in the Gulph of Wybourg, we forefee that a number of obftacles will impede our alliance with that Power. s h I p - n fi w s. Deal, .? Wind S. R.
