from CiHJte; December 25, to Xfoltl& qp December 27, 17' 1. Yeft- rday in the Afternoon came in Three Holland Mails, with the following Advices. Vienna, December 19. Everal Letters from Turkey ten us, that the Grand Vizie r has been depefed, and the Aga of the Janaffaries promoted to rhat Dignity, wnichis confirmed by the arrival of an Exprefs from Conftautino- ple, who coming through Adrianople was informed, that the Grand Vizier a- forefaid had been feized with all his Papers, which were to be fenc to Conftantinople. The Swedes give out, that the new Grand Vizier is as much for War, as his Predecefior was againft it, and flatter themfelves that the Port will renew the War againft the Czar ofMufcovv, " who has not yet deliver'd up Azoph nor any other Place mention'd in tbe Treaty cancluded with the late Grand Vizier. The Emperor is expefted the 20th of the next Month, and will loon after repair toPresburgh to be Crowned King of Hungary. Frankfort, December 27. The Emperor made his Publick Entry into this City the 19th inftant, and on the 22d was Crowned with the ufual Ceremonies, the Ele- ftors of Mentz, Tryers, and Palatine affifting in Perfon in the fame, with the Ambaffadors of the Eleftors of Saxony, Brandenburgh and Hannover. This Solem- nity was attended with all imaginable Demonftrations of Joy, and his Imperial Majefty has been complimented thereupon by feveral Princes and Minifters. and other Perfons of Note. That Prince is daily in Council fince his arrival at this Place, and there is hardly one Day, but he receives Difpatches from the Hague, or fends Ex- preffes thither. The departure of his Majefty is vari- oufly talk'd of, for fome tell us, that he defigns to fet out the 7th of January, and others, that he will continue here til] the 1/ jtb, by which time we fhall know whether the Congrefs for treating of a General Peace will be o- pened at Utrecht. Hamburgh, December 29. Our Advices from the Camp before Scralfund fay, that the Kings of Poland and Denmark have thought fit at laft to abandon the Siege of that Place, and as the Town ofWifmar has but a very thin Garrifon, they hope that the reducing of it will prove more eafy than theirother Enterprize, and fopart of tbe Artillery defigncd againft 3: ralfu;- d is fent thither with a Reinforcement of Horfe and Foot. The Danes and Saxons were ftill before Stralfund the 26th, but were preparing to decamp. The Swedifh Reinforcements ar- rived in the Ifland ef Rugen confift only of 600 Foot, but the Swedes tel! us, that they daily expeft further Suc- cours wbich will enable their Generals to preierve Wif- mar, and oblige their Enemies to retire from their Ter- ritories. The Danfh Fleet is laid up, and they have only a Squadron at Sea. They write from Berlin that the Markgrave Philip William, Erather to tbe King of Prulfia, dyed the 19th inftant, in the 43d Year of his Age. We have advice from Thorn, that the Hereditary Prince of Mufcovy and his Princefs are to rcfide this Winter in that Place. Several Letters from Poland fay. that they had advice from the Frontiers, that the Grand Vizier has been depofed, which is alfo confirmed by Let- ters from Vienna. They tell us alfo, that there is aTreaty of Peace concluded hetween the Czar and the King of Sweden, but this Report meets with no Credit. The © aneshave taken by force from the Arfenal of Roftock, 60 Pieces of Cannon, to be employed againft Wifmar, which was like to have occafioned a Sedition in that Town. Paris, December 28. Some Letters from Catalenia fay> that theGarrifon ofthe Caftle ofCardona furrender'd the 5 th inftant, and they expeft the Confirmation of that Ad- rice by the next Letters from Madrid. They had no account of Che taking of that Place the 14th at Rozei, from whence they write, that all the Ships of the late Convoy fent thither with Ammunition and Piovifious from ProveHce are arrived there except one, which was cjft away in the Gulph of Lyons. Our Plenipotentiaries intend to fet put on Saturday next for Utrecht; but thofe ofSpain arc not to repair thither til} their admif- fion is agreed upon bv the Allies, who have not thought fic to allow them Paffcs 4 and thpMoft Chriftian King has f; nt an Exprefs to Madrid to defire his Grandfoa to fiifpend, upon tbat account, the departure bf his Miui- fters, but if they are already fee our, they will continue here, this Court being willing to remcve all the Difficul- ties that migl't fcbltiuft the openirg of the C1r. ftrtr. ce3 at Utrecht. ' Tis fai.', tbat if the Negotiations go ou with the defited fuccefs, his Majvfty will go ard tefide in one of our Frontier PIr. ces, to be nearer to give the lieceffary Inftruftion3 to his Plenipotentiaries, and acce, lerate the conclufion cf the Treaty. We have no man- ner of account ofMonfieurdu Caffe and the. Ga! leons, and when we expected to hear of the return of Alor. ileur du Gue Trouin, we are told, that inftc* d of going upon any Attempt againft the Englifb or Portugu- zc Settle- mentsin the Weft. Indies, he is gone into the South Sea, to tike PoffdTion of fome Harbours on the Cosft of Peru or Chili, eicher for fecuring the fame for this Crown, or elfe that it may be in the King's Power to difpofe of them as he fhall think fit. ' Tis fatd that the Duke of Noailles, the Chevalier de Luxemburgh, and the Count de Goesbriant, are to be made Marefchals of France^ The Eleftor of Bavaria is fuddenly expefled, and ' tis faid he i » to continue hera during the Negotiations of Peace, or at leaft till he is allow'd to fend his Pleni- potentiaries to the Congrefs, They give cut at Courts that the King is very much difpleafed with the Dutch, upon account of fome Difficulties they have ftarted up againft the Negotiations, and in particular againft the admiffion of the Minifters of King Philip. Our Advices from the Coaft of Normandy, Britany, and other Mari- time Provinces on tbe Ocean, tell us, that on the 9th inftant they had a moft dreadful Storm, which funk many Ships, and did a world of damage. The Town of Ro- chel fuffered very much, and the Diana, one of the King's Frigots, was funk in the Harbour, with 100 Men on board. They write from Bilbao, that they had no Storm there till tbe 10 th, but that it proved very violent, and was attended with an Earthquake. On Friday laft the Marquis de Torcy went to St Germains, and had a long Conference with the late Queen of England, and the Che- valier de St George. The Duke of Vandome having in- form'd the Court of tbe ill Condition of his Forces, is order'd to put them into Winter Quarters, as Toon as the Siege of Cardona is ever; and they are remitting two Millions to that General ro pay part of their Ar- retrs. They continue to give out here, that there is an open Mifunderftanding between the Duke of Argylc and Count Staremberg, and that the latter having fent Or. ders to the Englifh Commander in Terragona to detach fome Troops from his Garrifon to reinforce the Army, he had refufed to comply therewith. Amfterdam, January x- The following Abftrafr of a Letter from Madrid has been publifhed in our Gazette^ . Madrid, December 2. 4 The Advices we have re- 4 ceived here concerting Peace, have furprifld many 4 People, who defpair now of ever feeing a Peace that can ' contiuue above 2 or 3 Years, if tbe Monarchy of Spain ' and the Indies rtmain to the Houfe of Bourbon . For ' whatever Treaties may be made with them, they will 4 ferve only to amufe Esgland and Holland, who are the ' lupport of this War, and to deprive the Emperor of * the Right he has to that Monarchy. ' Tis certain that ' France and Spain are already entrtd into private Trea- < ties of Commerce, and even ' tis faid that one of them « imports, That tbere ( hall be a Chamber of Commerce 4 for the Accompt of the Two Kings: That France fhall ' furnilh her Manufaftures, and all other Neceffariesfor 4 the lading of the Flotta and Galleons : Thac if the 1 Englifh and Dutch lade any Goods on board the fain^ • for their own particular Accompt under Spanifh Names, 4 as they did heretofore, their EfFecJs fhali be puc into 4 Store Houfes in the Indies, and fhall nor be expr. fcd 4 to Sale till tbofe of the French are all d fpnfed of at • their own Prir- c ~ « ... « n u ijxoiea or at « their own Prices, whereby the Merchandizes belonging < to the Englifh and Dutch, will be fold afcenvards, at ' fuch low Rates, that they will be Lofers by the Re- < turn. This, as the French fay, will weaken thofe two ' Powers, and brir. g yearly to the French 40 Millions of 4 Pieces of Eight, or the Profit arifing from the Sale « of their Goods, and 20 Millions to King Philip 5 info* 4 much, that in fome Years France will be more able < than fhe has b? en hitherto, to give Laws to the reft oi 4 Europe, 8cc.
