AGreat Number of the Inhabitants, of 2 Villages in Mo- ravia, dying of an unknown Distemper, strong Guards are posted round them to prevent the spreading the Contagion. Amsterdam May 22. Letters from Gottenburg import, that on the first Inst. 9 English and 4 Dutch Ships were Brought in- to that Port by the Swedish Privateers: That the Swedish Men of War Were retir'd to their Harbours, and conceal'd them- selves behind the Cliffs, for fear of the Danish Squadron ; and that only 2 ot 3 of their Privateers kept our at Sea, the rest of of them running out every Morning and retiring in the Even- ing to their Ports. Paris, May 25. Two Days ago, the Persian Ambassador went to exercise his Men after his Country Manner, in a Place call'd the Elisian Fields, in Queen's Court: They were 30 in Number ; and the Place being greatly crowded with Spectators, one of his Domesticks was oblig'd to make Room with his Battoon. Among others whom he struck, a Knight of the Or- der of St. Lazarus, not being able to retire fast enough, the Domestick gave him such a Blow on the Forehead, that a great Quantity of Blood gush'd out. The Chevalier, to avenge himself, clap'd his Hand to his Sword, but fainting, was not able to draw. Many Officers and others taking Part with the wounded Gentleman, the Persians immediately mounted their Horses, pull'd out their Sabres and drew up in Order. The Ambassador informing himself of what had pass'd, sent his Interpreter, to ask of the Chevalier, what Satisfaction he demanded, adding, that if he pleas'd he would cut off his Head before his Face. The Knight not agreeing to this, the Ambassador promis'd to do him Justice; but we do not yet know what kind of Satisfaction it will be. Paris Paris, May 29. Two of the richest Merchants at Marseilles'" are broke for two Millions at least, and made their Eicape to Genoa, in so crafty a manner, that they hare neither left Mo- ney nor Effects behind them. Several others are gone off at Tonlon, but not for such large Sums. Frequent Bankrupcks have likewise happen'd at Bourdeaux, and in many other Towns, throughout the Kingdom ; which are imputed by fome to the lowering ot the Coin, and others to the Decteafe of Trade. From the Camp at Stetin, May 20. We expect the Return of the Marquis de Croissy in 3 or 4 Days, and then it will be - known, whether we shall have Peace or War: In the mean time, the Swedes continue to fortify the Passages to prevent our penetrating to Stralsund. We have Forage till the End of this Month, but if we march for Stralsund, we must be supply'd by the Danish Fleet, the Country being so exhausted, that ir can afford us no Subsistance. The Swedes themselves begin to want several things: But their King shewing such an Exam- ple of Parsimony and Patience ; that all his Troops are more animated and contented, than some would be in the midst of Plenty. We hear his Swedish Majesty is advanc'd within 3 Leagues of our Camp, to view the Country. Two Battallions having join'd us from Koningsburg, our Army is increas'd to 30000 Men, including the Saxons-, be- sides a separate Body near Wollin. Hamburgh May 14. They write from Stralsund, That the Marquis de Croissy declared to the King of Sweden, the French King not being able at this Juncture to assist him with his Troops, advis'd him to make Peace at any Rate. Letters from the Prussian Camp say, the Marq de Croissy was return'd thither with his Swedish Majesty's Answer, which seems only calculated for gaining Time that Prince desiring the King of Prussia to forbear Hostilities till the 26th Instant, by which time- he may condescend 0n the Preliminary Articles of Peace: Notwithwanding this, his Prussian Majesty having sent Count Dona Dona to the King of Sweden, tis hop'd the Negotiations will have a good Issue. From Dormer's Letter May 19. It is worth Observation to those that are curious in publick Affairs, how there seems at this Time to be a gene- ral Intricacy and Uncertainty upon all the great Transactions of the World, and Europe seems to be in Suspence concerning what shall be entered upon in every Nation. All our News in every Quarter ends in telling us only that this or that is expected, and this or that is believed, but nothing of Action any where yet entred upon. We shall give the Sum of our last Post's Intelligence as in Illustration of this Remark. The Turks have been many Months making Preparations of War, but no Man knows yet where it will break out, and whether they will fall first upon the Venetians, the Malt hops, the King of Sicily, the Pole, the Musco- vite, or the Emperor, all of them are uncertain and in Suspense about it, making Preparations to defend themselves. The Spaniards and French have been a long time amusing the World with Preparations, Fleets failing and Armys marching to fall upon Majorca, and tho' Majorcans have been making as Vigorous Preparations to defend themselves, and yet to this Hour, none knows whether Majorca will be at tacked, or will submit, or will obtain their Demands, or how it will be, all hangs in suspence. The King of Sweden has been 5 Months at Stralsund, arming and threat- ning his Enemies to break out upon them, and the Pole, Saxon, Prussian, Dean and Muscovite have been all Jealous of his Motions ; but there he is still, they are no wiser now, than they were before, all is uncertain which Way he does, or everdid intend to turn himself, so that they are obliged to attempt to surround him that he may not get out any Way. The Landgrave of Hesse Cassel, and the French King has been drawing Forces together, and hovering aboat on that side with their Armys, and e- very Day for some Time we have been told, that they will march to assist the King of Sweden, but all in suspence still, and to this Day no Man knows whether they intend to concern themselves in the Northren War, Yea, or No. The British and Dutch are sending strong Fleets to the Baltick, it had been long uncertain, whether they would sail at all, and now that it is Known, it is yet unknown whether they are to meddle in the matter of Peace or War, or whether they only go to secure Commerce and protect their Merchants, The Treaty of Barrier in Flanders, has been these several Months in Agi tation, and every Post for a long Time has brought us an Account that all the most difficult Articles were adjusted, and that this Time and the other Time, they were to meet to put the last Hand to that Affair, and yet to this Day notwithstanding 21 Conferences, two extraordinary Embassys to Vien- na, and all the other Steps which have been taken in that matter, it hangs still in suspence, and the Worlds as uncertain about the Conclusion of it as ever they were. The Affair of Mardyke has been upon the Anvill, and long the British Nobleman, the Earl of Stairs has been at Paris, the two Courts have been hammering Memorials upon that Affair pro and con for some Months, and yet it is hard for the World without Doors to say whether it is to be a Port or not a Port, a Canal, or not a Canal, whether the Works are stopt, or whether they go on, whether they are finished already, or not to be finished at all, whether the French will submit quietly to the Demands of his British Ma- jesty, and whether if they will not, any Measures further than by Words will be taken to oblige to it, or not, all is uncertain and in suspence. Even the Affair of Dunkirk it self lies in the same uncertainty, and the Nations concerned cannot satisfie the World about it, some say it is demolish- ed, and some say it is not, some say the Port will yet receive large Ships', and others say, that nothing bigger than a fishing Boat dares go into it, all uncertain and in suspence. Nay even at Home, we are no more certain than they are abroad, nor has the News from Man's Coffee House told us, who are to be hang'd, and who are to be beheaded, or who if any can be cut off shall be used so tenderly, shall be spared, but all is yet uncertain and in suspence. Even the secret Committee have not yet made their Report. London May, 21. Dr. Clavering is made Hebrew Professor at Oxford, in the Room of Dr. Roger Altham deceas'd. Mr. Marmaduke Alford, Serjeant of his Majesty's Royal Chappel at St, James's, is dead, and is succceded by Mr. Jona- than Smith. Sir Henry Monson, Bart. is dangerously ill at his Seat call'd Baron, near the City of LincoIn, insomuch that his Life is dispair'd of. This Week the Election of Kings Scholars at Westminster, Was made in that College, by the Bishops of Rochester and Bristol, assisted by Dr. Bentley, Master of Trinity College in Cambridge, and Dr. Terry, Cannon of Christ- Church, Oxon ; wherein several of the best Proficients in Learning Were made Choice of as a Supply to those two famous Universities. On Wednesday last, the Lord John Drummond, was, com- mitted to Newgate, upon the Oath of one Eliz Gallway, for committing a Rape upon her very unchaste Body ; so that the Ladies of Pleasure, encouraged by the Success one of their Sis- terhood, has had in prosecuting Mr. Leeson for the said pretend- ed Crime, are in hopes of carrying on the Trade of Perjury very glibly. The said Noble Person's Case, wherein the Causes of this infamous Woman's Treatment of him, will see the Light very speedily. In the same Week, another well- practic'd Lady of the hun- dreds of Drury, endeavour'd to do as much by another Man « [ 8] Quality, who coming into one of their Houses of Resort, was cajol'd up Stairs, where he was no sooner enter'd, but Madam lock'd the Door, and flung the Key under the Bed, after which she very religiously fell a tearing the Gentleman's Peruge, scratching his Face, and crying out a Rape ; which made the People planted below Stairs for that Purpose, break open the Door to seize the imaginary Ravisher but he escape from ' em at the Price of a very good Hat and Peruge, which he was forc'd to leave behind him in the hurry, On Friday last, Mr. Parkhurst was executed at Tyburn, having been carryed in a Mourning Coach to the fatal Tree, where he seem'd very Penitent. He had two Ministers to per- form the last Offices but before he went out of Prison, shew'd very little Concern, and notwithstanding DissWasion to the contrary, had so good a Stomach as to eat a whole Chicken. Our Merchants have an Account, that the Swedes have late- ly taken above 20 Ships Of this Nation in the Baltick. From Foxes Letter May 19. Yesterday the Commons went into a Com- mittee upon the Pentions granted by Q Anne, and continued by K. George ta great People in Places at Court, and some Gentlemen called for Mr. Tho. Onslow to the Chair, but not being in the Way, Mr. Freeman was placed in it, an'd the Debate fell upon this Head, whether 50000 1. a Year be allowed by the King to People out of the civil List, altho' most of those Persons have places of profit at the same Time, and whether this was not a Burthen to the Subjects, and then they instanc'd a Duke, that had 4000 1. j Year, an Earl that had 12000l. a Year in Pentions, and Places to his Family, and it was objected, that the 15000 1. per Annum to the French Re- fugees could not be call'd a Pention, it being a Charity, and that 7000l. per Annum added to the Judges Salaries was n0 Petition but necessary ; about 6 a Clock the Question was started that the Chairman leave the Chair, Yeas 191, Noes 188, to they came to no Resolution. Yesterday came in a Dutch Post, advising from the North, that the French Envoy is gone from the King of Sweden to the King of Prussia to endea- vour to get a further Cessation of Arms for fourteen Days, that the Turks and Tartars encrease on the Frontiers of Poland, and that King Augustus was coming to the Prussian Camp to act in Concert with that King. London, May 19. This Afternoon at out one, died the Rt. Hon. Charles Montague Earl of Halifax, at his House at Westminster. He was by his late Majesty King William 3d the Year 1691, made one of the Commissioners of the Treasury, and afterwards Chancellor of the Exchequer, In 1700 he was created a Baron of this Realm, by the Title of lord Halifax in the County of York the same year was Made Auditor of the Exchequer, ( which Place in October Last he resign'd to his Nephew George Montague, Esq was twice constituted one of the Lords Justices of England in the Absence of King William ; was afterwards impeach'd by the House of Commons for the Partition treaty, but that Impeachment was dismiss'd by the Lords. In 1606, he was sent to Hanover, to carry the Succession Act. He was by the present King made one of the Lords Justices of Gieat Britain, until his Majesty's Arrival. Soon after which he was sworn of the Privy Council, made first Commissioner of the Treasury, created Earl of Hallifax, and ap- pointed Lord Lieutenant of the Bounty of Surry. He married Anne Widow of the late Earl of Manchester, since deceas'd, but no Issue. From Roper's Letter, May 19. Alderman Chambers, Mayor of Cambridge, whon was sent for in Custody of the Serjeant at Arms, was upon his return home, met by 3. or 400 Gentlemen of the College, and others on Horseback, to welcome him, and upon his Arrival there was Bonefires, and other Illuminations throughout the Town Also that severaI Lampoons having been lately dispers'd there, upon the several Col- ledges in the University, particularly Trinity, the Rev. Dr. Sherlock Vice- Chancellor of the University, has forbid the Alehouses, Coffee Houses, & c. to receive any Pub- lick Papers, or Written News- Letters, if they do their Licenses will be taken from them- From Foxes Letter, May, 21. Thursday a French Post came in with Advice, that Mon. Leblanc the Intendant if gone back to Dunkirk with full Instructions abut Mardyke, and Orders to make a new Reform among the French Troops in Flanders. from Spain that the Majorcans are treating for their Liberties so that the Expedition against that Isle will be laid aside. From Antwerp that the Conferences continue a- bout the Barrier, and like to continue a Fortnight lonqer by Reason the Dutch Insist upon a free Trade in all the Pro- vinces. This Day, came in a Dutch Post, with Advice from Vienna, that the Turkish Envoy had an Audience of Pr- Eugene, and way afterwards entertain'd very splendidly. From Saxony} that the States have given a to the King of Poland, who is gone to command the Saxons in the Prussian Camp, which is augmented to 30000 Men. From Holland, that the Emperor has declar'd, that he was not grant the Dutch any more for their Barrier, than what he granted to Caddogan. The Arch Bishop of Canterbury if given over by his Physitians. ' London [ 10 ] London, May 21. Sir John Norris, Admiral of the Blue, with a Squadron of 20 Men of War, and a Fleet of Merchant Ships under his Convoy, sailed from the Nore the 18th Instant in the Morning for the Baltick, to protect the Trade of his Ma- jesty's Subjects in that Sea. His Majesty has been pleas'd to appoint the Earl of Burling- ton, to be Lord Lieutenant of the West Riding of the County of York, and ot the City of York, and County of the same and Ansty of York., His Majesty has been pleased to direct Letters Patents to pass the Seals for granting the Dignity of Boronet of the Kingdom of Great Britain to George Warrender of Lockhend, in the Shire of Hadington, Esq, Lord Provost of the City of Edinburg.

And William Caulfield, Esq; a Judge in that King- dom. Mr. William Baresby, who was in Custody of the Searjeant at Arms, was brought to the Bar, where he ( upon his Knees) receiv'd a reprimand from Mr. Speaker, and was discharged out of Custody paying his Fees. Paris, May 19. The East India ship, being arriv'd lately at Port Louis, is valu'd at more than 1 Millions of Livres, and the Cargo of the z others from which she was separated by a Tempest, is computed to be above 6 Millions; Five Men, said to be Bankrupts taken 0n the side of Angouleme, are brought hither in Fetters, and put into the Chatelet. The Chevalier of the Order of St. Lazarus, who was wounded by one of the Persians in the Elesian Fields on the 23d. Inst. dyed next Day, He was an Officer of the Mousquetairs, for which Reason the other Officers of that Body make a great Noise, and insist on having Satisfaction. M. de S. Olon went last Saturday to the Persian Ambassador and told him that the King judg'd it necessary to give satisfaction to the Monsquetaires; The Ambassador answer'd, he had done it already, by inflicting the Basti- nado on his slave, and that he had offer'd the deceas'd to cut of the said slave's head, which being refus'd, it was not reasonable to punish him a se- cond time. We know not what Conference this Affair will have, nor what the V 11) the Court will determine about it. The 9th Instant, the Lord Bolingbroke set out from hence, and we are inform'd he is to go and reside for some time, at a Country seat, near Vienne in Dauphiny. The Courier, who was dispatch'd to Vienna, about the Affair of Mojoica, being return'd, we Hear it is reported, that a suspension of Arms is agreed on. Vienna, May 15. The Elector of Triars continues his Conferences with the Emperor, and we hear, he is endeavouiing to obtain one of the Arch- dutchesses, Daughters of the late Emperor Joseph, for the eldest Son of the Duke of Lorrain. But that Affair will meet with great Difficulties. The Eldest Princess is as good as promised to the Electoral Prince of Bavaria 5 and the Elector Palatine uses all his Interest at this Court, which is very great, to obtain the youngest for the young Prince of Sultbach, who is to succeed him in his Electorate. From Fox's Letter, London May 14. Sunday last died the Lord Peirpoint a Peer of Britain, made by this King, and having no Issue his Estate worth 150000 I. falls to the Marquiss of Dorchester.
