THE Castles of Mendon, St. Cloud and St. Ger - main are now furnishing, for the King to make Choice of one of them for his Residence, in Cafe the Contagion should spread in such a Manner as to threaten this City. Hitherto we are under no fear and proper Precautions for fecuring u « againstitare still taking. Paris, Sept. 29, Two Days ago the Mini? sters of the Kings of Great Britain and France, sign'd the Act of Guarantee concerning the Re- nunciation of the Emperor to the Kingdoms and States possessed by the King of Spain, and that of his Catholick Majesty to the Kingdom and States possessed by his Imperial Majesty. The said Act will be deliver'd to Mor- row to the Ministers of the Emperor and King of Spain. Hague, Octob. 6. Prince Curakin, Ambassador of the Czar receiv'd Yesterday, by an Express from his Court, the welcome News that the Trea- ty of Peace between the Czar his Master and the King of Sweden was sign'd at Newsted on the 30th of August O. S. Marvejols in Languedoc, Sept. 9. Almost every House in this City is infected 5 12, 15, or 20 Persons Ge- nerally die in a Day, and 1000 are reckoned to be carried off since the Be- ginning of the Infection. As soon as it gets into a Family it immediately perishes. The Inhabitants who are shut up in their Houses undergo the same Fate with those in the Streets, the Contagion equally destroying both . A Physician from Montpellier, and another from Canorgue, are dead No Body can Penetrate iuto the Nature of the Malignity ; it infests surprizing- ly; So poisonous are its Effluvia, that the Glass Windows of the Church are all crack'd since it has been used for an Infirmary. The Distemper has reached St. Legar, Rechignac la Salle, les Grattons and the neibouring Villages of Regoudel, and Monrodat. Montlimar, Sept. 24. Above 50 Persons have died lately in Bederides, but that is not what ' , Avignon is a much more important Object for us and the I 4 ) resf of the Kingdom. Avignon is attick'd by the Plague in a 1 Its Forms, and has been so probably since th isth of Auguft laft, wh ch the Vice Legate and the Consuls have hidden with all imaginable Artifice, to gain Time to provide for themselves: Thus have they deceived not only their Neighbours who traded with them, in Reliance upon publick Faith, but also M. Medavy, from whom they have concealed the Truth above a Month ; and contrary to heir solemn Promises. which no doubt w 1! be resented against them, Letters from thence say, that the Vice Legife ha- ving ordered a Quarantain of 20 Days, shut himself up > n his Palace with abundance of Provisions; that he sent first of all his Plate to the Con- suls, for the Maintenance of the Poor; that he keeps only 50 Men for his Guard, having sent the rest to the Consuls for the Support of good Order and Discipline in the City. The first Consul the Marqu s de Galean, is also retired to his House, to give his Orders with more Safety. The laft Letters from thence say, that already every Thing is mighty fcarce ; that 152 Persons have died from the 14th of August to the 17th of September, and that 24 died on the 16th. Orange it much suspected, and ' twill be almost a Miracle if it escapes, considering the great Intercourfe it had with Avignon. Betides Avignon and Bederides, the Towns of Sorgues, En- traigues, and Mentaux, are greatly suspected. Paris, Octob. 1.
