Tile Ceremoniale of the Audience of the Ambaffadors of the RepubliJc of Poland haying been adjuficd,, the laid Ambaf-fador, viz. the f'eyvide Kaliski, z Grandees of the'namtj of Crifpin, Count T�rU% and a Gentleman of the Family of Oginski^r Were yefterday ;CQndu�red ro their Audience of the King of Sweden in the following minner. The Sieur Lieteen Lieutenant General, who was appointed ro receive them, repaired to the quarters of the Ambaffadors, with jo Trabmds or Life Guard, and above 50 Gentleman, and cendu&ed them on Horfcback to the Kings Tent, which was pitched for that purpofe ; but when the-y came within 40 paces o/rhe fame, they alighted, and were received by the Sieur Haurd Chamberlain of the King, who perform'd the function of Under Marefchal of the Courr. Tliey walked from thence to the Teri,a Barallion of Guards bein^ d>avn up,Drums beating, J�:id the O'Ticers falui'.ig fjiem. They waked a � little while in the Kin^i Anti-Chamber, and were received by Major Genera! - VJ , Guardi, and conducted ro che Ringb." intentions of the Repuolick, to cultivate a go^d rriendfh;p and neighbourhood with Sweden, inhfting on 'heir religfoal ohferva eipa of Treaties, ar;d clearing his Stvedith Majefty would do the fame . on hi* pa-f, and in order ro prevent a War, and the efFjfion ot ChriftianBlood, chat he would appoint .

As foo;� as Count Piper h*d made an end of his difcourfe, the Ambaffidors were conduced back- with the fame Ceremoniej. They fisemed well pleafed, hut rve are told fince that they dp not like rhe latter part of the Anlwer, which feemv to imp'y that his Majefty expects that .'the Republick fhould joyn with him in Dethroning their, King, as he exprelfed himfelr in his Lef fer to the Cardinal Pri'rrure. Whatever it is, our Troops ane ordered to march, and they do not diffemble at Court, that we are going direcfly to H'arfaw, Paris, June 2. Letters from our Army in Italy of the 2,0th paft, come in by the ordinary Poft, bring a large account of the march of the Duke of Vandome � for relieving Mcmtu��\\ffrai pieces of Cannon ; but the Garrifon, cpnliilir|g of 404 men, being not able to hold our, furrendered that place, and were made Prifoners of War. This rooming our Detachments, w;h!ch were ferit out to gee., intelligence of rhe Enemy, brought ,advice, that they were retired from their Camp onjvt.he;other fide of theChieJa, and were marching back, towards the Fo,whereupon ourArmy is ordered to march wjrhall fpeed. The journal from the Camp gbes no further but we are told, that lift night anJExprefi carrne to the King, "with advice, that, our;Army.dec.Bmp?d the 21ft paft from lforeIU,.and having pi|btjieC^/�/<� without any oppofitio�, marched dirfeftlyfto Aiw�-tua, where the Duke of Vandome arrived the *4th.

From the Camp before Keyferwaerf, June 3-. The Enemy have been very quiet fince the Sajly they madeon the 2^d paft, in which they were lb-roughly ufed, that 'tis thought they will hardly venture upon another. Our Troops that wereengaged on that occsfion behaved themfelves to admiration, and amongft others the Regiments of Strathnaver and Wlhke, which have loft a great many Men; The Majtw of the former, with a Serjeants and 76 men were wounded, and 1 Captain, 1 Lieutenant, I Enfign, 1 Serjeant, and 73 men killed. The Lieu--tenant Collonel of Wilckes, 2 Captains, I Lieutenant, 1 Enfign, 5 Serjeancs and $1 men wounded, and the Major, a Lieutenants, 1 Enfign, 1 Adjutant and 31 men killed. We loft likewife feveral Troopers, who purfued the Enemy to the Counterfcarp, and had in all} 30 men killed, and 17a wounded.
