Constantinople, July 8. ;�v> ; CCIDENTS of the plague happen daily in town and in many of the villages fituated on this c.aaal.; and intelligence-has been received that it has ma-nifefted itfelf with fame violence at Galata. Several flight (hocks of an earthquake we're felt 3rt this city, and in all the neighbouring villages, .between the hours of one and five in the morning .of the 4th inftant; alio another /hock at feven the fame evening, and again the next morning at ten o'clock. It appeals that the motion was horizontal, ajid the direttiori from the South-Weft; but Ho damage has been occafioned here by it. . ^ Vienna^ Aug. f. According to the lateft ad-vkes'from the frontiers of Silelia, it appears that feveral Pruflian regiments had already begun their .march towards their permanent (lations in time of peace : and we expett to hear, in a few days, that the fame orders have been given in regard to the Auftrrah troops. , pre/den, Aug. \\. Application has very re-cehtly been made to this Government by the Prufhan Minifter, for the paflage through this Electorate of a part of the Pruffian army, in their way from Sfleiia back to their refpe&ive garnfonS. ; Stockholm, Jug. 10. Twenty-fix of the veflels iak?n by the Swedes in the late aftion have been repaired and rendered fit for fervice, of which pumber three are frigates, fevejj gallies, and twb or three other veFels of a large force. The total of the RufJian prifoners is now found to be 2.60 officers and 6200 privates ; befides i 8 who, being dangeroufly wounded, have been lent back to Frederickfham. .. The Swedifh Government has endeavoured to lefTen the expence and trouble of maintaining the remaining prifoners, by inviting proprietors of land, farmers, tradefmen, and manufacturers to jnake life of their labour in the diiferent branches for which they may be found to be fit: And this expedient feems likely to fuceeed beyond expectation. Copenhagen, Aug. 14. A niofl: melancholy 'agf.idem occurred on Monday laft, either at the fcnouth of the river Gotha, or, according toother relations, off the Scaw.

The {hip funk with fuch rapidity, that tint part of the crew which happened to be below the deck at the tittle of the accident, and amounting to eighty -feven in number, had not the means or opportunity to efcape.
