TIS advised from Rome, of the 19th. past, That the Pope ha- ving observed that advantagions Lotteries were established by the Court of Vienna at Naples and Milan, would be very pre- judicial to the Ecclesiastical State, and thereby drain it of all the ready Cash, his Holiness had thought fit to prevent, the same in causing a pottery to be set up in that City tho' much opposed by the Imperial Minister Cardinal Althan, who had desired of the Pope an Audience but was refused Admittance. That Cardinal Ottoboni had gi- ven a Magnificent Entertainment to the sacred College, with a Consort of Musick Perform'd by 42 Voices and 114 Instruments, in which a Cana- ta was sung entituled Rome rejoycing for the exaltation of her Holy Fa- ther, Prince, and Citizen; and after the Consort a fine firework was play'd off, the Decoration whereof represented the Temple of Minerva', where the four Parts of the World were seen coming up to make their Of- ferings. And add that the Duke of Bracciano had at last obtained a Dispensa- tion to marry the Princess of Barghese, his first Wife's Sister. Letters from Paris of the 15th Instant N. S. say that the Prince of Au- sturia is shortly to be married to the Daughter of his Royal Higness the Duke of Orleans. We are informed that on Fryday Night about 11 a Clock an Express ar- rived here, from Paris, to Monsieur la Clonche Secretary for the French Affairs with advice, that on Sunday last the most Christian King was mar- ried by proxy to the Infanta of Spain, who is in the 4th Year of her Age. Private Letters from Brabant assure, that Mr Robt. Knight lives well, and in no small Splendour and Profuseness in his Confinement at the Ca- stle of Antwerp, where he was allowed all the Liberty he could desire. The Letters from Paris of the 17th advise, that the Inanta of Spain was expected there in March next, to be brought up under the Care of Ma- dam Vantadour, but say that the Prince of Austuria is to marry the Arch- Dutchess, and his Brother Ferdinand the Regents Daughter, and the Duke of Chartres the Infanta of Portugal. From / ( 4 ) From Whitehall Evening Post, The Duke of Berwick has sent an express with the melancholy News touching the Contagion in the District of Gevaudan, and that this terrible Scourge was even felt in 30 Villages belonging to Rovergues Hereupon the said Duke ordered new Lines to be cast up, which are to extend about 40 Miles, namely, from the River Tarn to that of Alli.' t, and thence to the River Loire and the Rhone. These Lines are to be guarded, not only by the Peasants thereabouts, but also by a great Number of Troops under the Conduct of the Duke of Berwick: and besides this Precaution another will be taken, Which, we hope, will prove more successful, viz to com- pel the Inhabitants of infected Places to come away stark naked, and to burn their Cloaths; and, after having received new ones, to perform Qua- rantain in Barks. Cambray, Sept. 2. ' Tis very doubtful when the Congress will be open. ed here for treating of a Peace of the South: ' Tis said, that to remove one of the Difficulties which have so long retarded this Affair, a Proposal it made on the Part of the King of Spain, That in regard the Cortes or States of that Monarchy cannot be assembled without prodigious Expen- ces, his Catholick Majesty's Act of Renunciation shall be registred in such Cities and Towns as are wont to send Deputies to the States when conve- ned upon extraordinary Occasions. Ostend Sept. 7 By the English Ships arriv'd in the Downs fron East Indies, we have Advice, that our Ship call'd the Ostend home from Bengale, after having sustain'd several. Storms beyond the Cape, became so leaky, that the Goods on Board were all wet, and that the Sea- men endeavour'd all they could to get to the Island of Mascarin, or that of Mauritio, to dry the Effects; but it was apprehended the Ship will not be able to proceed on her Voyage hither. Marseilles, August 22. No infectious Distempers having been discover'd, here, and in the neighbouring Parts, our Churches and the Exchange are at last open'd again, and the Courts of Judicature will be permitted to assemble in a few Days. Paris, Sept. 8. Letters from St. Geniez in the Rovergue import, that the Marquis de Bonas, who commands the Troops on that Side, had made a Tour to the District of Grivaudan hard by Conaurge, and that by the Advice of the Physicians, and the Consent of the Duke de Roquelaure he removed the Troops from that small Tract of Land to the Frontiers of Languedoc, in Order to guard all the Avenues of that Province.

' Tis certain Rech, Deputy of the Protestant Body would have been oblig'd ' ere now to retire from the Palatinate, but that the Elector is sensible that his Minister in the Protestant Courts must ex- pert the same Treatment- The Catholick Clergy leave no Stone unturn'd to prevent or frustrate the concertcd Union of the Reformed or Lutherans in the Lower Palatinate, that they may maintain one another with more Success in their Religious Privileges.

LONDON, LONDON, Sept. 9.

Nathaniel Jolliffe, Esq, of the Town of Southren, having got a vast Estate by South Sea, and as an Increase to his Fortune, marryed a Lady of 7000 1. designs, ' tis said, to stand Candidate for Member of Parliament for the same Town at the ensuing Election ; he has great Interest there, and is daily making more by treating every Body that comes to his House, arter an extraordinary Manner.

The Son upon his return home, and the * Appearance of the bloody scene, finding his Father yet in the House, charged him with the Murther, and carry'd him before a Justice of Peace in Neighbourhood, before whom he denied the Crime.

Dr John Keill, Savilian Professor of Astronomy in the University of Oxford, died thereon Thursday sev'night last, on which a Gentleman of that City made the following Epitaph. BEneath this Stone the World's just Wonder lies, Who, while on Earth, had rang'd the spacious Skies, Around the Stars his Active Soul had flown, And seen their Courses finish'd, e'er his own. He now enjoys those Realms he could explore, And finds that Heav'n he knew so well before. He thro' more World's his Victories pursu'd, Than Ammon's Son could wish to have subdu'd : One spacious Universe he travel'd o'er,. Till scanty Nature could afford no more ; And when another could not be supply'd, He came, saw, vanquish'd this, then griev'd, return'd, and dy'd. write from Plymouth, thet on Monday se'nnight, the Helena, a Ship, put in there, who in her Passage from Falmouth, about four Leagues off Low, espyed a Ship standing to the Southward, which soon bore down upon him; hoisting a Jack at his Ensign Staff, ,' white with a red Cross) the Dane hoisted his Ensign also ; whereupon the other en. deavoured to board him ; but he sailing very well, and the Sea running high, Wind S.

The Commander was in a Moorish Habit on the Quarter Deck, with a large Silver Scymiter drawn in his Hand : He spoke to them in Low Dutch, and swore that if they did not that Minute strike, he would cut every Soul of them to Pieces : Whereupon the Dane struck his stop sails, and said, I shall soon come on board; having by this time received many hundred Shots from Patereroes, Blunderbusses, Muskets, & c, in his Masts Sails, Rigging and Hull, and several thro' his Cabbin. On his striking the other lay by, and began to reeve His Topsails, taking in his Gibs, & c. which the Dane observing hoisted his Topsail again, and made directly for the Eastward of the Start : The Enemy with a great deal of Confusi- on pursued him to the very Break of the Rocks, but thinking he was re- solv'd to run ashore, stood off to Sea at S. S. W. the Course of the Wind coming East. The Dane seeing the Coast pretty clear, endeavoured for Portsmouth; but meeting, with a violent N. E. Wind bore away for plymouth [ 8 ] mouth.
