His Prussian Majesty having been inform'd, that the Ro- man Catholicks, notwithstanding their enormous and unheard of Proceedings at Thorn, are still going on with their Persecutions, and labouring at the total Oppression of the Protestant Citizens of that Town, has sent to his Polish Majesty at Dresden another Rescript, in much stronger Terms than the former, concluding that his Polish Majeity would be pleas'd to interpose and exert his Royal Autho. rity to put a stop to these farther Proceedings ; in Default whereof, he must ex- pect to see this Affair redressed in another Manner, and with Eclat.

Leipiick, ( in Germany) Jan. 15 They write fram Thorn, that the Vice- President of that City, M Czernich, was pardon'd for being con- cem'd in the late Tumult; and that ' twas reported, all Matters touch- ing the Magistracy would be put on the same Foot as before the Tu- mult happened Some particular Advices from Berlin say, that the King of Prussia has so far taken to Heart the Interest of the oppressed Protestants, and especially those settled in Polish Prussia, that such effectual Means would be taken, as will entirely prevent for the future, the Roman Catholicks persecuting those People. There is remarkable Advice from Dantzick, that several of the Citizens of Thorn who are arrived there, relate, that at the Execution ol the Ten Protestants, the Executioner cut, of most of them, only part of their Heads, in which Condition they languished ictme considerable time before they could expire.

The Battle was fought with equal Spirit and Resolution on both Sides, but not with equal Stature, Strength or Skill, the Italian being the' tal- left by several Inches, but the Englishman the most sturdy, for he re- ceived all the Attacks of the Italian without much Hurt or Concern, gave him several terrible Falls without having one himfelf, and beac him so sorely, that he was forc'd at last to cry out Basta, which signi- ed that he was basted enough.
