N the 17th inftant M' Mcthwin, Envoy Extraordinary of rhe Queen of England, had audience of che King of Portugal, and was very favourably itrceived.

The Governor of chat Fort made immediately che ufual fignaJ, by uifcharging feveral Gun$,ar.d the other Forts nearer this place did thi like, fas 19th that Fleet appeared off of Cape la Routt, and the fame day in the evening within 6 or 7 Leagues - of Cajcair. The 20th they loll fight of thera, bnc by the courfe they fleered, and the report of fome Officers landed at Gafcais, 'tis not doubted, but they fail for Cadiz. The Negotiations of Prince Darmjiat in this Court, have given great umbrage to the French ana Spanifh Minifters, who have complained thereo�,as of an infringement of the Treaty of Alliance between their Matters and the Crown of Portugal, and have reprefented, that the frequent Courrieis that Prince received from Spain, did not leavs room co doubt, but that he to concirt fome meufures ar;ainfr the prefent King of Spain. Thole Minifters fpoke fo very big, that his Portuguifs Majefty thought fit to fend a Gentleman to deljre that Prince to quit his Dominions, at which meffige-he appeared fo difgufted, that he refufed the n�xc day to admit to his prefence another Gentleman, who was lent to him with a Jewel worth 11000 Ditch, and fix the Miners ro the Wall on the fide ofche Grand Attack, andjo we hops the Garrifuu will be obliged rj Capitulate in a very few dsys. The French Army under Monfieur Catinat has made feveral motions, and 'tis reported th.f.y detign to relieve Landau, but the PafTes of Cmm Wijff'.nbttrgh and others are fo well guarded, that there is no likely-hood that they will attempt to force their way on that fide. They are comeback ro iiaguenau, and according to the report of fome Defer- ers they ate not above 13000 ffrong. Our advices itotnRatisbonne {jy, that the Swedifb Miniftcr has notified co the other Minifters of che Dyet, that he has received orders from his Matter to concur with others in the Declaration of Waragainft Francs and tysin. Paris, Sept. 9. Our laft advices from Italy of the 19th pair fay, that both Armies continued to Cannonade each other, tho without any great effefl on eithet fide, becaufc of the Increnchments they have caft up to cover thtmfeives.

They hope cd oblige in a few days the Garrifon to Capitulate, for the place being but indifferently fortified, 'tis notltkely that zooo men can defend it long. They talk afcerwards of befieging Berzello, there being no probability of obliging Prince Eugene to quit his Camp,js long as he is Maft�r of Borgoforte. Thofe Letters fay, that Prince Eugene and the Duke of Vandome have at lift agreed upon a Chartel for exchanging Prifbners, and that the Ranfbm of the Marefchalof Villeroy is agreed upon for 50000 Livres.

The next day the Gentleman returned, but had the fame anfwer ; and rhe Princ* went on board an Englifh Frigot, which failed the 15th, in order to joyn the Englifh Fleet. Count WallcQein, AmbaiTador ofche Emperor, is very much tUfpLafid therewith. Tftsre arenowinchis River 5 French Men of vVn from Jo to 70 Guns, and 4 Galleys, but their Crew is much weakned by Mortality. There is ad>-ice, that the Squadron,under the Command of Admiral Fairborn has joyned the Grand Fleer, which caufes a great joy to rhe Engiifii here ; becaufe there is a report that Sir George Rook his cruifed feveral days to meet that Squadron. Oar Governours have oriiirs fo fupply die Englifh and Dutch with all forts of Refrefhmencs.
