The Patience, Brown, from Barbadoes ; the Difpatch, Cheek, from Carolina ; and Neptune, Coats, from New-England, are arrived at Briiiol. LONDON. Letter from Stockholm, September 13, N.S. ' � There were hot Debates the other Day in the College � of the Noblefle, upon a Memorial delivered in by the *. Counts de Bonde and Bielke, insinuating that they were S * both expelled the Senate without any valid Reafon having * been affigned for fuch Ufage to them : As they had feve-� ral Partizans in the Affembly, the Debates lafted 'till Nine o'CIock at Night; but at laft the Refolution did * not turn out in Favour of the two Senators; their Me- * morial was declared ill-grounded by the Majority. The � Burghers fided with the Noblefle in this Debate, and 'tis � not doubted but that the Clergy and the Peafants, who ' have not .yet given their Votes upon it, will be of the * fame Opinion. � A few Days ago the" Order of the Burghers moved for ' conferring the Dignity of Generaliflirno on the Succeflbr, * to the End that he may command our Forces both by � Sea and Land during the King's Abfence: They alfo � propofed that an Allowance be made his RoyalHighnefs for * � the Expences which the Poft of Generaliffimo may put * him to, over and above his Civil Lift, which has been Jetiled already. This Prapofal brought on very warm De-' bates, but at laft all the Orders agreed to it. * The Secret Committee have reprefeoted to the Dyet, � - that as the Cafe now /lands, efpecially with Refpeft to * Denmark, whofe Armaments feem to be defigned againft 9 this Kingdom, it was neceflarv that the Noblefle fhould * chufe 10 trufty Perfons, and the other Orders a proportio- * nable Number, to be joined with the Secret Committee, � andaflift theawn their Deliberations on,ihe Afeirs of the � prefent Conjunflurfe. The Marfhar of the Dyet having * backed thefe Representations j the four Ofders agreed to � chufe a fufficient-Number of Perfons to enable the Secret � Committee to tranfafl every Thing with all poffible Dif- * patch. At the fame Time, the Noblefle refolved that � the Dyet fhould break up the 16th Inftant, but the other � Orders have not yet given their Confent to it Neverthe- * lefs feveral Senators and Members of the Dyet are pre-� paring to fet.out for their Country-Seats. ----- ' A regular Poft is eftabli/hed again with Finland, The * Briti/h Minifter has frequent Conferences with ourMi-' niftry, and prefented them a Memorial relaring to the � Affairs of Denmark. We are affured that, the Ruffian � Minifters have taken Meafures with\>ur Court, for draw- * ing up a new Tariff of Commerce between Sweden and � Ruffia. * Letters from'Rome fay, that the Pope being defirous that that City fhould be a Pattern not only to* all Italy, but the whole Ch'rifiian World, and not knowing how far thefe two Scourges, War and Peftilence, may fpread, hjs Holy-nefshas already ordered that there {bailie noCamivai next Year in the Dominions of the Holy See, and that Mafque-rades, Operas, Plays and Balls fbali be b:nifhed thence ; to the End that the Almighty may be the more difpofed to preferve them from the Sicknefs which rages in Sicily and Calabria,, as well as reftore Union and Concord among Chriftian Princes, when he fees them humbling and morti-tifying themfelvei at aSeafon of the Year which ufed to be ;fet a-part for Pleafures and Diver/ions-This is a very good Thought in his Holinefs; but it is a long Time to next Carnival, and furely he cannot? but know, that Repentance ought not to be put off till the Morrow. Letxrs from Francfort fay, that Count Piofafque is gone !to take the Command of the Imperial Army in the Abfence of Count SeckendorfF, who is going upon fome important Negotiation to a certain Court. They write from Louvain, that they are very much plagued with the Dyjfentery, which has already carried off 400 Perfons ; and that they have ordered publick Prayers, 4 and made a folemh Proceffion to beg of Heaven to rid them of that Diflemper. , We hear from Silefia, that they continue augmenting and repairing thevFortifications of the ftrcng-Towns in that Duichy, and that 5000 Peafants are at Work in levelling the Hills which command the City of Glatz. . Prince Lobkowitz arrived at Mantua the 10th Inftant, N.S..and the next Day proceeded on his journey to the Auftrian Armyi the Command of which he is take from Count Traun, Tne Duke of Cumberland, arrived at Briflol from Virginia, fell in with three of the J ^maica Fleet, on the Coaft of Ireland, in a fhatter'd Conation'; but knew not their 'Names.
