UR ]a(t Letters from Livonia toll us, that the King ofSaWor was on hi's march from Dorpf towards the Du.'na, in order to fight the Sax am and AluUo-jites, and - that Genera] Willing is march'd with ano- ther Body to rheFromiers of that Province on the fide of Plcfiow to obferve the motions of the greatArmy of the C/,ar, and prevent the irruption they threaten the Swedes with on that fide. A party of 4000 Mufcovitcs mad: about the latter end of iaft Month an inroad towards Dorpt , but a Regiment of Horle under Ccllone) Frederick Patcull being lent after rhem, they runaway in greJt conrufion leaving $0 Men tilled upon the fpot. The Imperial Envoy nas lately made frefh to the King ot Swcdano perl'wade him to enter into a Treaty with tlie Czar and the [King of Poland, and we hear nis Swedijh Majefry returned iiim an anfwertothis effe�t : That he being a C'irifrian' Prince, he could not take delight in the efFu/Ion of Chriffian Blood ; that therefore lie was not averfe to Peace, and to accept the mediation of the Emperor and other Princes and Scutes who had interpofed tneir kindly Offices in that Affair, but that feeing the King of Poland and the Czar Mad invaded his Countiy without any provocation while he was embaralfed in the Troubles of Holftcin, he Could nor with honour enter into a Tre.iry, uuiefs rhofe Princes offered him as 3 PieHmintry the reftihifion of what they have taken, and a due latisfaftion for the Charges and Expeuces he has been at, and the damage his faithful Subjects have fuftained. The Sienr Crunenburgh Envoy ot' tha States of Htllitnd is going from Warfare to the Swedijb Camp, and 'tis hoped (hat at laft all Parties will agree to a ceilacionof all Ifo'Hlitiesymd to enter into a. Negotiation. The Stved-'jh Troops In Pomerania are drawing up together, and me Duke o; Hilflein their Genera) is fjone take a review, of'em, after which his High-oefs intends for Stockilm, and from thence for Livonia, The King of Dtnrnark is returned to Copcnhaguen,hiving given orders to fits Troops to hold thetnlelves in a teadinefs to march to the afiifhnce of ths Empsror and the States General, according in the Treaties lately concluded with them. That Prince has pub-HfhiA a nsiv Regulation frr the incouragLng the com-iri'>n Sou!diers,and fupprefiing exactions and violences of ciieir Officers, whereby aniongft jther things,Officers a-.K forbidden co beat their Soldiers upon pain of being Cafhiered, and fj flop any thing oac ot their Pay upon any pretence whiffoevet. Brujftls, July 25. The review of our Cavalry which was appointed this day, is put off to the joth in.rant, and the fame will be performed on the Heath of Cafleau on tVis fide i-Uns, irnlead of Pietoni in the mean time all Officers are commanded uprm fevere Penalties to have their Troops compleateu, mounred ao,d accoutred by that day. The Pioneers which Were fummoned to work on the Lines ta cover thefe Pio-vlnces are fenc home, and the Jlouldiers are to work on cl�e fame, and the Country are to pay them 8 d. a day for their work, which is a great Charge upon the People. Frefh orders are come from the French Court to provide our Magazines with all necejf,mes, . and they write from Pi'rii and'the tl.ig'n that there is more likelyhood of a War than ever. An Ex-prefj is sjone for tiie tot Coun* Av.:ux, and 'tis faid that that Minifter is recall'd,feeing the Englifr, % and Dutch will not recede from their demands, and that they infill" that fitisfacfion be given to trie Emperor, who doubtlefs will demand a great fhare cf the Span'jh S'uccedion, now that his Troops have obtained fome advantage in Italy. Our Letters from Pjris fay that the Affair of Carpi Is very inconfiderable, but they give a Quite contrary account from Veron%, and feeing the trench Troops have been oblig'd to quit P.i-jqli and all other Pofts along the Adige, and retire towards Mar.tua, this is enough to perfwade the World that the Defile of Carpi was cf the greateft importance. They write from France that an Army is to be formed in the Durcity or Liinturgi:, which is to a& againft the ESeeior Palatine, 'or in conjunction with the great Army in CuelderLvid in cafe of r.eed. P.r,-:s, July 27. An E).prefs is fent to the Hngu; with new Inftruitions for Count a Avaax , who has been required from the States to give a poiitive anfwer to their demands in ten days, reckoning from the 18 inffanr, and as the iiopes of Peace feem to vanilh away, the Officers of our Troops are ordered tor.pair with all ipeed to their refpective Commands, and Vis fa id the Duke of Burgundy will let out for Flr.nders by the beginning of Ajg-tfi. Frequent Expreffei arrive from //<*/y,but.iji.1eid of hearing of a battel,we a;e told that Moniieur Cntinat is retired to Go'ito in the V.antusm, hiving che P,li?;cio between him and the Germans. Not-.wuhftaading that River is not lo difficult to pais as 'the Adige, 'tis confidently reported that ths Germans will not be able to pals it, elpecially if they do not undertake it before the reinforcements we are fending into It My are arrived there, but others who know- better things, arefenlible that the Msncio is not able to flop an Imperial Army,and that Monfieur Catinat will be obliged to run the hazard of a Battel. They talk of raifing*5occo men, but thofe Levies will prove very difficult both in refpeft to the men and charges. The lafl advices from Mantua fay chat the Germans ex- M peft a reinforcement of loooo men from Tyrel, having T now all the PafTage free. Pl.iguc, July 16. This morning Count � Avmx went to the Grand Penfionary, and afterwards to Monfieur Dickveli, who is Prelident this week in the Alfembly of the States General, and delivered to the latter a Memorial, containing in fubftarice, That the Conferences held hithertc having proved ufelefs to find Out means for fecuring the Peace, and new difficulties being ftarted up every day, the mo ft Chnfti-an King had commanded him to notify to the S'rates, that he had nothing more to offer than'the execution of the Treaty of Refmck, as he had lorn? time ago declared ; but that feeing their 'High Mightinefles were riot fatisried therewith, he was ordered to return hoxne. The King is expected back next week from Flanders ; and they write from BergMmpipom, that while his Majefty was there, feverai French Officers who are polled in the Lines about Antwerp, defied leave to come intoi the Town to lee his Mjjeity, which was granted taem, and they were likewise pre-fent at the Review of the Garrifon.
