O. S. H E 26th ult. a Fire broke out in the Night in a fmall Town called Larideck, in the County of Glatz in Bo- _ hernia, and the Wind being very high at that Time, the whole Town was in a Flame in lefs than an Hour ; all the Efforts to extinguifh the Fire was in vain; the Town- Houfe, the Churches, and all the Houfes except four, were reduced to Afhes; and the Inhabitants faved but very little of their Eflefts : One Thing which they look upon to be very lucky in the midft of this Difafter is, that the Baths of Landeck have not been damaged. There was another Fire on the ill Inftant at Night in the little Town of Aliglitz near Olmutz, by which the Church, the Town- houfe, and about ioo Houfes were reduced to Alius. Leghorn, March 2. O. S. According to fome Advices from Corfica, the Male* contents have publifhed a Decree, in which they declare, that in all their Negotiations with the General of the French Troops, t'aey never pretended to prejudice in the leaft the Election of Baron Neuhoff in Quality of King of their Ifland : But the French look upon that as a frivolous Argument, and affirm, that the Prebendary Orticoni and Dr. Giafferi, who negotiated with the late Count de Boflieux, never treated about the Royalty of Baron Neuhoff in a ferious M inner ; and that the Count confidered it in no other Light than a political Farce. Oder Letters from Corfica bring Advice, that a Body of 3000 French Troops having . begun their March from Calvi, with two Mortars and two Pieces of Cannon, in order to attack an important Poll in the Province of E. ilagna, the Malecontents let them approach, and attacked them with a Body of 6000 Men; that after a very obllinate Engagement the French were put to flight,, with the Lofs of their Biggagc, Sec. and that Couriers were immediately difpttched to France, with the News of this Action. Rome, March 3. O. S. They write from Benevento, that many of the Citizens are gone into the Country for fear of being buried under the Ruins of their Houfes, there having happened no lefs than three Earthquakes fucceflively, which were pretty violent, and they dread that the next will be worfe. ' Advices from Madrid fay, it's thought that the Marriage of the Infanta Donna Maria Therefa with the Dauphin, will be declared about the time of the fetting out of Madam of France: Nay, it's even reported, that his Catholick Majefty will accompany the Infanta to the Frontiers, in order to deliver her to his moft Chriftian Majefty, who on that Occafion will meet the King of Spain upon the Confines of the two Kingdoms ; but this Report wants Confirmation. The fame Advices add, that the Marquis de la Quadra lately had a long Conference with Mr. Keene, upon the Subjeft of fome Difpatches that the Court had received from Don Thomas Geraldino, which it's pretended relate to the provifional Refufal made by the South- Sea Company againft paying Spain the 650301. Sterling, which that Crown feems to infill upon being paid, previous to any other Difcuffion. Leghorn, March it,. A few Days fince, the Grand Duke going to fee the Galley; belonging to this Port, took Pity on fome old Slaves, who had fcarce Strength encugh left to handle . the Oar, and caufed them to be fet at Liberty : He iikewife pardoned twelve young Turks,, and gave them Leave to return into their own Country. Milan, March 18. The King of Sardinia hiv. ng lately made a Reduction of his Troops, tiie d- ifbanded Soldiers repair to the Milanefe, where they engage themfelves to ferve in Hungary. Warfttku, March 18. A Turkifh Aga is fpeeiily expefted here, who it's faid will have it in Charge to afk the Interpofition of the King and t i e Republick, to make fome Proportions for concluding a Peace between his Flighnefs, the Emperor, and Ruffii. It is not doubted but that thefe Propofitions will be favourably received, provided that a general Peace is aimed at. The Council of Senators will aflemble foon after the Arrival of the Aga, to deliberate upon what he would have propofed. The Army which the Grand Vizir will command in Hungary will be compofei of 150,000 Men. Vienna, March 21. When the Emperor conferred the Command in Chief of the Army in Hungary upon Count Wallis, his Imperial Majefty granted this General the fame unlimited Power of making fuch Marches as he fhould think convenient, and giving Battle when he fhould think fit, as was given to the late Prince Eugene. To prevent the Turks from taking Ships upon the Danube and the Sava, there have been caft in different Places of thefe Rivers, Anchors, with large Chains fixe*! to . them, which hold the Trunks of Trees, full of Iron Spikes. Thefe Anchors are at fo little a Diftance from each other, that the fmalleft Bark cannot pafs between them. Redoubts are likewife erefled upon the Shore, to hinder the Enemy from deftroying thefe Works. Letters from the Marquis de Villeneuve, the French Ambjffador at ConftantirtopJe bring, that the laft Inilances he had made to the Ottoman Miniitry to a Sufpenfion of Arms, were favourably enough received; and that the Grand Signior feemed more inclinable towards Peace than heretofore. It's not thought proper, however, to fruft to thefe Appearances, the Policy of the Porte, it's well known, fometimes leading it to give hopes of Peace, when its real Defign is to aft with the greateft Vigour. Upon Advi ce that - the Infidels feem to meditate fome Enterprize againft Belgrade, Orders have been ftnt to the Regiments that lie neareft to that Place, to detach- 250 Men from each of them, in order to cover it from any Surprize; and Count Wallis fets out either to Day orTo- morrow, to make the neceffary Difpofitions for the Campaign. They write from Belgrade, that the Turks feem to have a Defign to poft themfelves at the Confluence of the Da-| nube and the Sava, in order to fhut this Place on that Side, and to prevenl the Communication of the two River/ It is added, that a Party of the EnemJ had taken Avalas, a fmall Poft, abou three Leagues from hence, fituate upon Mountain where there is a Silver Mine had killed fome of the Workmen falonging thereto, and taken others of then Prifoners.

Wherein Ridicule, properly applied, is defended. The Unrighteoufnefs and Uncharitablenefs of Mens damning their Neighbours for Opinions for which GOD will not damn them. The Light of perfonal Judgment is vindica; eJ ; and it is flu- wed that a Man may be a g od Churchman, without fubfcrib: ng all the Church Articles ; which is a Yoke on many honeft Clergymen.* The Notion of Orthodoxy is ftated; and that me. r Opinions render no Man acceptable to God. - The Scripture Divinity of Jcfus Chrilt is Vindicated ; and the numerous Abfurdities of the pre ten led Orthodox Scheme expofed.
