HE Diet is at prefent em-t�jS�) ployed by the different fi/iff^i T applications made by pri- ;_'*'i!l / XX , vate perfons to obtain tlie Indigenate and Letters of Nobility. The lift of them is very numerous, and contains the Hames of al-moft all the bankers and merchants in Warfaw, and tiofe of a number of the principal tradesmen and artiih.

This Memorial has been dillributed amongit all the LMetines and Palatinates.

"dintely withdrawn from attending Mr.Heidenftein, '� ''the S.wedi'h Ambaffador, as alfo. the. allowance 4y> had from the Porte, which was very, confiderable. : '�Re-has fince in vain folicited an audience of the IvUmHrjr, who fent "hita for.aniwsr, that as his requeft could only be on political fubjects, the Porte was determined not to have any further concern with Sweden on thefe matters. Letters from Vienna fay, that the Baron de Herbert, the Imperial Minifter, has received the ultimatum of the Court of Kulfia, which he is charged 10 communicate to the Turkifh Deputies at the Congrefs.

The Court came to a refolution to declare a dividend of four per cent, on the Company's ftock for the laft half year, and agreed to fnfpend the bye-laws for giving Mr. Lewin permiffion to build a fhip in the room of the Vanfit-tart, which was loft laft feafon in the Streights of Sunda; Mr. Fiptt, the owner of the fhip Hart-well, which was alfo loft fome time fince, made a few obfervations j after which the Court broke up. Yefterday a Court of Common Council was held at Guildhall, at which the Lord-Mayor, Recorder, 13 Aldermen, the two Sheriffs, and a great number of Commoners were prefent. The proceedings of the laft Court were read. MrvDepury Birch made fome remarks on a cno-. tion he had in his lund, refpecling the privilege ! of this Court in appointing a Serjeant at Arms j for'this City ;,pbferving that his Majefty had-recently appointed a Serjeant at Arms to attend on the LordjM'ayor of London, and he was of opinion the appointment was in this Court, but had by fome means efcaped them. He concluded by moving, " That it be referred to the Committee for General Purpofes forthwith to examine into the nature and duties of the office of Serjeant at Arms to the City of London, what his. emoluments are, and for what purpofes and by whom they are paid : by what means fo confiderable an appendage to the dignity of this great City has been neglected, and the origin of the cuftom of the Common Cryer of this.

The Dean had dined at a Gentleman's in Park-lane, from whence he . was returning when this violence was committed. We are happy to hear it has not been attended with any other confluences than a flight cold.
