From Thursday July 20. to Saturday July 21. 1721 Petersburg, June 30. tHE Czar, Prince Mensicoff, and the high Admiral Apraxin, were this Day, En- tertain'd at Dinner by Romadofsky. The Young Count Golofskin who was to have attended the Duke of Holstein, as High- Steward, is now appointed by His Czar- ish MaJesty to go and Execute a Secret Commission at a Foreign Court which some say, is that of Spain.

We have now receiv'd Advice that the Russian Gallies, who for some time past have been pillaging and destroying the Countries along the Coast in the Bothnick Gulf, are with- . drawn, pursuant to an Order brought them from the Czar by a Lieutenant; But although the Hostilities are ceased, yet the Inhabitants of those Parts will not be able to furnish any Supplies this Year by reason of the great Losses they have suffered. • .5 S Vienna July 12. Here is Advice from Rome, that Cardinal d'Althan Mi- nister of the Emperor at that Court, still refuses treating with Cardinal Spinola, as Secretary of State to the Pope. , Copenhagen, July' 18. On the 16th Instant the Queen made her publick , Entry here from Frederiksborg. Hamburg, July 22. The last Letters from Stockholm advise that the News of the Conclusion of the Peace is daily expected from Neu- stad, the Swedes consenting to yield up the half of Finland, River Kymen, and that the Czar seems not to insist any longer upon the Duke of Holstein's Succession to the Crown of Sweden, especially since M. de Campredon, ' Envoy of France has represented to his Czarish Majesty, that in cAse he would not desist from that Point the Swedes would absolutely. break off the Negociations at Neustad, - and undego the utmost Extremity before they would con- sent to a Proposition of that Sort. 1 IT . ; . > A Description of the monstrous Fish, or Sea- Dog, which was taken on the Coast of Naples the 6th Day of last June. SOme little time ago, a Waterman being Swimming in the Shallow Road, Named Ponte Magdalen was unfor- tunately devour'd by a large Sea Dog ; in the very sight of several Fishermen, who bad the good Fortune to get off ; but reflecting on the Prejudice which this would do their Fishe- ry, they took care to provide several Instruments of Iron, and large Steel Fishing Hooks4 then getting on Board several Boats, they followed the Monster which was often seen near that Place. On the 6th of June they discover'd the Fish, • and threw out a Hook baited with a Horses Buttock, but the Monster as if he had been sensible of their Intent, refus'd to take the Bait. Finding that this Stratagem would not prevail, they pitch'd upon another, which was, throwing a Cord into the Sea with a slip Knot baited in the middle, the ends whereof they held. The Monster seiz'd the Bait so very greedily, that his Head dipt quite thro' the Noose, and the Fishermen pulling the ends of the Cords laid fast hold on their Prey ; the fish to disengage it self, gave such a spring that he pitch'd Tail over Head upon the Shore, broke the Nape of his Neck; and was left upon the Sand, to the unexpressible Joy of the Fishermen . and Spectators. That Monster was of the Length of Twenty Hands, his Mouth and Throat of an excessive Wideness, with three Rows of Teeth in his upper, Jaws and one Row in the under one. He had two Finns three Hands lorg and a third up- on his back longer than the other two. His Tail was in the Shape of a Bow six Hands wide his, Belly was not pro- portionable to the rest of the Body, being 14 Hands in cir- cumferenc WHen they came to examin it it, prov'd to be a She, and weigh'd 400 P0Unds. The next Day, the Fishermen open'd the Fish, and in it Belly were several Fish- es found, with half a Man's skull, which had still some Hair left- upon it; there were also the two Legs with part of the Backbone and Ribs. The Neopolitan Committee of Health order'd that the Fish should be burnt, least the Stench of It should infect the Air. , London, July 22.
