NAPLES, November 18. THREE young English Noblemen who were upon their Tra- vels, came some Time since to this City, intending to satisfy their Curiosity with viewing what is most remarkable here, but about a Fortnight ago the said three Lords and most of their At- tendance dy'd with excessive Drinking of a Liquor, called here Aquetta, made with one Third of Water, and two Thirds Wine, made pallatable with divers Aramatick Ingredients. Rome, Nov. 28". Signior Joseph, Bartholi Perintji. late Gentleman of the Chamberto the Ambassador of Portugal dy'd here lately, and was- Yesterday buried in the Church of St. a Maria in Via. The Corpse being cloath'd in White, with the Cross of the Order of St. James of Portu- gal, a Sword by his Side, Helmet on his Head, and Boots and Spurs on his Legs. Orange, Dec. 4. The Plague here his scarce increas'd or abated for some Weeks past, it is computed that 100 of our Inhabitants have died of it ; there are 16 sick in the Infirmaries, and 18 of them are bcliev'd to be on the Recovery. Eight Soldiers of our Garrison have also been carried off by the Contagion ; the rest are well. The Inhabitants have begun a new Quaranraint which is as strictly observ'd as the first was M. du Bois Dauphin, a very rich Gentleman, died lately in the Infir- mary Hamburgh, Dec. 19. Advices from Stockholm import, thar the Rus- sians in evacuating the Dutchy of Finland observ'd so regular a Discipline that none of the Inhabitants had the least Matter ot Complaint against them. Paris, Dec. 27. Some of our Merchants have form'd a new Company with those of Rouen, for carrying on the Trade to the Levant, which be- fore the late Plague at Marseilles, was wholly in the Hands of the Mer- chants of that City. From 4 From Miller's Letter, Dec. 23. ' Tis advised from Paris, that Monsieur Petterier being arrived from Lions, and accused of several Robberies, was to be tryed in the Presence of the most Chriftian King, on which occasion abundance of the Quality would be likewise present. That his Majesty had received another better from the Dutchess of Vantador, wherein she acquainted him that the Prin- cess de Montpensier propos'd to be at St. Jean de Lux on the 7th of next month, where the Iofanta of Spain was expected at the same time That the Count de Prada, a Grandee of Portugal, and Grandson to the Mar- shall de Villeroy, having lately made his Escape out of Portugal, was much respected at Court, he having been a Prisoner three Years, during all which time his Father, tho' first Chamberlain of the Bed Chamber to King of Portugal, had not been able to obtain his Liberty. His Crime was for not paying Homage enough to a Churchman ; the King of Portu- gal having ordered all the Grandees of the Kingdom to stop their Coach- es whenever they meet the Patriarch of Lisbon's, wh'ch this young Lord neglected to obey the Orders, and on a certain Day meeting that Prelate in the Street, only saluted him without paying any further Respect to that Reverend Archbishop. From the Whitehall Evening Post. Stockholm, Nov 19. The States of this Country will certainly meet soon after the Holydays : In the meantime the King will continue here, to reconcile by his Pretence the Divisions among the Nobility.

Last Wednesday an Express arrived from Constanti- nople, where the Plague is almost ceased, but extending to the Danube, the Poles have prohibited all Commerce with the Turks. The Express which lately arrived here from England, brought the Ratification ot the Convention concluded between the Emperor and the King of Spain, by the Guarantee of Great Britain and France ; so it is hoped that not on- ly the Cambray Congress will be formed, but likewise the Brunswick Trea- ty, so long projected ; the rather, because the Czar, in respect of the latter, has made several advantagious Proposals. LONDON, Dec. 23. ' Last Week Mr. Warwick and Mr. Redman, two Officers of the Cu. stoms, seized in a Cellar in the Strand near 2000 Wright of Tea; a Part thereof was stowed loose in Brewing Tuns and Mash Tubs On Monday last Sir Paul Whichcot, Baronet, departed this Life, at his Seat in Oxfordshire.

There are several Petitions now depending in the House of Commons from Kent, Surry, Southwark, & c. praying for a Bridge over the Thames, from the Ferry at Westminster to Lambeth; and the Belief that a Bill will pass accordingly, has very much advanced the Price of Land; near the Water side thereabouts.
