Letters from Gratz in Stira inform us they had advice from Dalmatiathat an Army of 50,000 Turks had advanced to the Mountains inhabited by the Montenegrins, which join to the Ottoman Territories on one Side and to thofe of Venice on the other. The Montenegrins are a free People, absolutely independent on any Power whatever, who being accuftomed to live in the Mountains, have fcarce any Laws but thofe of Nature, and are extremly warlike. Their averfton to Slavery makes them fhun all Correfpcndence with the Turks, and incline rather to the Venetians. What the real Defign of the Turk's March may be we have not learnt. Some private Advices from Venice confirm thofe from Gratz ; and add that this important Step of the Ottoman Court had made a very deep Impreffion on the SeBa e ; which, tho' the laft D'fpatches rrom its Baily at Conftantinople gave no Reafon for taking Umbrage at the Defigns of the Porte, is taking every Precaution that fuch a Conjun& ure requires ; and hath fent Expreffe to Vienna, Warfaw, and Petersburgh, with Advice ot this Motion of the Turk . that the neceffary Meafurss may be concerted for maintaini n g the public Tranquility in cafe the Infidels really intend to difturh i< Tho' after all it is generally thought that the new Miniftry of Constantinople have fcarce had Time to form any ugulat Syftem.

The Algerines hrving lately fhewn an Inclination to make Peace with the Regency of Tufcany, M.

Thefe Conditions appearing too burthenfome to be accepted immediately, the Regency will take Time to confider of them. According to other Advices from Algiers, they begin to be fo much out of Humour at their bad Succefs in the War, that fome Members of the Divan and of the Militia have openly propofed renewing the Peace with the Dutch.
