"ExtraS of a Letter from.Venice, Auguft IO, N.S. * Our laft Accounts from Conftantinople, bring a Con-� formation of SchachNadir's Progrefs in Turcdmania, where, * in order to ftrike Terror into the People, he abandoned � the City of Kars, which he took by Storm, to the Pillage �� of his Soldiers ; the Booty made there was very confide-' rabb ; Part of the Garrifon was put to the Sword, and � the reft fent away to the moft diftant Provinces of Periia. * After this the Periian Monarch continued his March to-�* wards-Babylon, which he intends to befiege. ThhNewg * occaiioned fuch a Ferment at Conftantinople $s liad like * to prove fatal to (he Grand Vizir -: Some of the Difcon- * tented confpired againft his Life ; but having had timely * Notice'of theDefign, he rendered it abortive. This � Plot failing, they afterwards endeavoured to raife a gene-� ral Infurrection, and dethrone the Grand Signor, but in � this they likewife mifcarried ; for the Grand Signor, ha- * ving very feafonably opened his Purfe to the Janiffaries, * they befitrred themfelves fo effectually, that they difco-* vered the Place where the Seditious aflemblcd, and took * up about 100 of them, moft of whom were put to I Death.' We hear from Peterfburgh, that the Velt Marfhal Lacy and the other Generals in Finland, have received Orders -not to withdraw the Ruffian Troops, ontil the definitive Treaty with Sweden be figned and ratified. Letters from Copenhagen bring Advice, that three Frigates are gone from thence to cruize in the Baltick $ that the whole Fleet was preparing to do the fame; that they are bard at Work in building more Ships; that all the Regiments have received their ultimate Orders to hold them-ielyes in Readinefs to march j and .that Baron Hopken, Secretary of the Swediw Embafly, was gone away in Poft to Stockholm. We bear from Nuremberg, that the Veldt Marflial Count Seckendorff remains in his old Quarters in the Circle of Franconia, with the Imperial Army, which is made up of about 6000 Bavarians and Heflians; and that his Bri tannick Majefty and the Queen of Hungary, having invi ted the States of the Circles of Swabia and Franconia, to come into their Meafures, they declared, in Anfwer to that Invitation, that the only Meafures they intend to come into are fuch as may reftore the Tranquility of Germany. %xtra3 of a Letter from FriBaurg, Augujl i.c, N.S. � The nth fnftant Prince Charles ofLorrain, refumed * his March from Wildftaten and Kippenheim, and entered * the Brifgau the' fame Day. This Day hir Serene High * nefs reaches -Munzingeh, which lies a little above Brifach * The French Army keeps conftantly in Sight of the Au-' ftrians, and we expect foon to hear of an Engagement e between them, as Prince Charles feems determined to ' pafs the Rhine at any Rate, and 'the French are making * all the neceflary Difpofitions to render his Paffageas diffi- * cult as poffible. * We heard the firing of CaBnon all the Night paft; * hence we conclude that the Auftrians have either been * attempting to pafs the Rhine, orto take Poft in fome of ' the Iilands in it. * P.S. A Report is jaft fpread, that Prince Charles has * at laft fucceeded in laying two Bridges over the River, * and has aftuaily finilhed them.' From Donawert we have Advice, that the Trenches are "not yet opened before Ingolftadt, and that General Beren-clan has agreed tolet an Officer of the .Garrifon go to Paris, to receive ultimate Inftruftions from the Court in Regard to the Defence or Redditionof the Town. Letters from Worms advife, that all the French Troops that were in the Neighbourhood ef Spire, began their March for Landan the I3thlnftant, N.S. and were followed the next Day by all the Generals, with the Artillery, Ammunition, Baggage, &c. According to Advices -from Str2fburgh, the Princes de Conti and Dombes, who were diverting themfelves in that City, have fuddenly departed,- in order to join the French Army, which keeps coafting along the Rhine, watching the Motions of the Auftrians. It is currently reported there that Prince Charles will endeavour to pals the Rhine be- tween Old Brifach and Runninguen ? toot they are of Opinion, that tho'he^hould fueceed in it, he would not be able afterwards to keep;his Ground on' the Territories of France, whew there, are fo many ftrong Towns, all well provided with Neceffaries for a long Siege j befides, the;e aw about 100,000 Men in the Upper and Lower Alface, who can affemble in a Body at a very fhort Warning, and keep the Auftrians from penetrating into the Country after .they have got over the Rhine. From Francfort we hear; that the B itifli, Hanoverian, and Heflian Troops have not yet followed the Auftrians over the Rhine ; fome fay, that they wait for the Junction of the 20,000 Dutch Troops, which will not be 'rill the End of this Month ; but others will have it, that his Majefty wi 1 not pafs the Rhine *jill he hears that Prince Charles of Lorrain has got over it. The Highlanders and the other Britifh Regiments that marched laft from Flanders, are arrived in the Army. Prince William of Heffe Caffel is gone to Aix laChapelle. Letter from Naples, Jufy^t, N.S. * The News received this Week from Reggio in Cala- * bria, informs us, that in the Space of eight Days upwards of 20 Perfons, all of them labouring under the fame' � Dift;mper, died m-the Village of San Giovanni; at firft * we were told, that they died of a malignant Fever ; but � the Precautions, taken-at the fame :Tkne, foon gave us to � underftand, that if the Government did not contefa it was the Plague, it was for fear of alarming the People, and * not meerly with an Intent to impofe upon them. Count Mabonf, an Irifllman, Lieutenant-General of the King's- ' Armies, has been fent for to Court, where he has recei-� ved Orders to go to Calabria, and take any Meafures he may judge neceflary for preventing the Plague's Tpreading � to the other Provinces of the Kingdom. For this pur-' pofe his Maj -fty gives him an unlimited Power by Sea ' and Land j 6000 Foot and zoooHorfe, under his Direc- * tion, are to form a Line along the Confines of Calabria, � and cot off all Manner of Communication between that Province and the reft of the Kingdom j the Captains and Matters of Gallies, Tartans, and other Veffels on the Coaft, are charged to obey punctually Count Mahoni's Orders. But as it is not fit we fhould ftarve here, while we are fecuring ourfelves againft the Plague, the Govern-' ment has taken an exacl Account of the Stock of Corn ' and other Provifions in this City and the adjacent Towns and Villages, and likewife contracted with divers Perfons ' to furnilh this Metropolis with the Neceffaries of Life from other Parts. The Noblefle, left they fhould be obliged to pack offlo their Country Seats, have laid up as ' much Provision there asppffible, and are fending thither ' Phyficians and'Surgeons with all Sorts of Medicines. All ' publick Diverfions are now fufpended, and the People ' fpend their Time in Prayer and Falling, &c.' ExtraS of a Letter from on hoard the ligrefs Indiamant to a Perfon at Br\jtol. 11 take this Opportunity to acquaint yon, that on the * 2cjth of May laft we fpoke with the Swan Snow, Capt. ' Sinclair, from the Bite, bound- ior Jamaica, who had * 348 fine healthy Slaves on board ; and h d only buried � two from the Coaft.-Our Commodore (ia ihe Liverpool, ( Capt. Swanton) gave chace to her in the Morning, came * up with her at 12 o'Clock, fir'd to bring her to,which fhe * refus'd, and return'd the Shot; fir'd feveral more, which � (he return'd : Then the Commodore imagining her to be y rife, he made a fecond Attempt, when the Boy grafp'd him fo fall, that he drew the poor Man under Water, and they were bothdrown'd together. .

Of which it appears by the Precognition taken, that four have been made ; one of which was deftroyed by them a'ter the Difcovery, the other three uttered to Perfons in that Neighbourhood, who could neither read nor write. The whole of the Performance is executed with a Pen, upon common Paper, wanting the Impreffion of the Seal, and other Checques of the Bank, and all fo extreamly ill done, that it isfurprifing how even the moft ignorant could be impofed upon, after the leaft Infpeclion.
