Maga, June 8. The Dutch Ship call'd the King of Spain, C. Valk Master, the Crew of which consisted of 35 Men, was on the 4th Instant at- tack'd by two Corsairs of Algiers, one of 90 the f other of 40 Guns, nine Leagues off of this Port, the Engagement was very obstinate, it began ac six in the morning, and continued till half an Hour after Twelve, during wh'ch time the Ene- my boarded her four times, and were every time forc'd out again with Loss, at last the Dutch Ship by some Accident took Fire, which oblig'd the Captain, with 22 of his men, to betake them- selves to their Long Boat, with which they got safe to Marvella, where, because in their hasty Escape from the Ship, they could not take with them their Cirtificate of Health, the Magistrates will oblige them to perform Quarantain, tho' the Captain, and 6 of his men are wounded, where- upon they have sent Complaints to the Governor of the Province, and are waiting his Answer. Gibraltar, June 11. The remaining Part of hi$ Majesty's Present to the Emperor of Morocco, on Occasion of the Peace lately made,, having been receiv'd at Tetuan by Mr. Hatfield the Bri- tish Consul the end of April last, and sent up to the Emperor, he immediately order'd such British. Subjects, as were Captives, to be deliver'd to Mr. Hatfield ; and renew'd his Orders to his Cruisers not to molest any British Ship. The Captives so re- leas'd, being the Survivors of the Crew of the Ship Mary, are Wm. Warren, Edw. Slaughter, Richard Howell, and Samuel Blake. They were brought over hither in a Sloop Yesterday, and they will by the first Opportunity proceed to England. Vienna, June 23. The Emperor has assigned to the two Sons of Prince Ragotzki 13000 Florins of the Sicilian Revenues; of which, the Eldest is to have 7000, and the Youngest 6000; more- over ' tis his Imperial Majesty's Pleasure, that the first shall be stiled Marquis of St. Charles, and the other Marquis of Sr. Elizabeth, Names of their Imperial Majesties. LONDON, July 2. A subterraneous Fire was lately discover'd to burn in a Wood at North Cray in Bexley in Kent, and the Roots of Trees suppos'd to be the chief ^ Pabulum that fed it: However that be, the same was observ'd to spread so very much ( there being no moisture in the Ground this dry Season to give a Check to its Progress) that the Inhabitants there abouts were put in a great Consternation there- by, and for several days together many Waggons were employ'd to carry Water from Bexley River to extinguish it. The vance so laudable an Undertaking, have order'd two new Barracks to be erected, and a proper Number of Troops to march thither, for the En- couragement and Protection of those who shall be employ'd in the Execution of the Design. Yesterday a great Quantity of damaged Wines • was staved at the Custom house Key. We hear the late Lord Bolinbroke designs to spend the Remainder of the Summer, in as pri- vate a manner as possible. at Lidyard in Cheshire, where his Father the Lord Viscount St. John will also reside, at a Seat he has there,' till the meet- ing of the Parliament, when he has hopes of get- ting his Attainder revers'd , Our merchants have Advice that the John and Thomas, Capt. Wood, from Burlington to North Bergin, was lately lost in her Passage thither. Also that the Betthsua, Capt. Fry, bound to Ja- maica, was lost at Berbuda to the Northward of Antegoa. Likewise that the Mary of Limerick, bound from Ireland to England, was cast away on the 23d last past, off of the Isle of Man, and of all the Souls that were on Board, two men only were saved. Letters from Rhode Island, dated the 2f th of April, advise, that one of their Sloops had lately caught a Whale of a prodigious Size, which was reckon'd worth 8001. including the Blubber. From Stanley's Letter, July 2. They write from Rochester, that Yesterday was Sen night came down thither a Conge de Elire for Electing the Bishop of Carlisle to the See of Ro- chester, upon which a Chapter was held at the Cathedral the' same Day, 1 and his Lordship was Elected accordingly, , Tis added, hid Lorddhip is suddenly expected there to be Installed, and that a great number of the Citizens are determin'd to meet him at Gravesend. On Tuesday last Dr. Christopher Packe of St. Albons was admitted a Fellow to the Royal Col- lege of Physicians.

Prize drawn last Week fell to Count Starrenburg, the Imperial Ambassador ac this Court, who has been Complimented by the Drums and Trumpets of the Guards on thar Ac- count, we hear his Excellency goes suddenly to Hannover. The 1000I. Prize drawn on Saturday last falls to Mr. Searle, Deputy Accomptant of the Gene- ral Post- Office. . The Affair of the Declaration of the 2 Sheriffs being appointed for this Day, the Hall was as much crowded to hear the Issue thereof as on Midsummer- day. The present Sheriffs signified, that upon Examination of the Pole Books, and Computations of the Numbers, they saw no rea- son to depart from the Declaration of Sir John Williams, and Mr. Lockwood, upon which some hundreds for the other Side called for the Numbers; of the Pole, which were also demanded by the Aldermen, but positively resisted, which occasi- The Poll at the Election of a Lecturer at St. Clement Danes ended on Saturday last, when the Rev. Mr. Peters was declar'd to have a consider- able majority.' On Wednesday last died Sir Richard Reinolds of Lalam in the County of Middlesex, Bart. He hath left an Estate of about 30001. per Annum, and, as we hear, 40' or 5o0oo I. in ready money. He died in a manner suddenly, being taken ill as he was coming to London in his Coach, upon which he was drove back, and expir'd in half an Hour after his Return home. Last Week four Footpads robb'd a man upon Bentley- Green near Farnham, and afterwards tred a Pistol at his head, which they thought had done his Business, but observing him to stir, they were charging again in order to dispatch him more effectually ; in the mean time he got up, and with great Difficulty made off and raised the Country. After a long Pursuit they were found among some Bushes. Being carried before a Magistrate, they were committed to Winchefter Goal, and carried thither in a Cart. One of the Number confess'd he had been in the Gang but a Fortnight, and that they had robb'd a Gentle- man and his Servant in the County of Kent, and murder'd both of them ; so that ' tis supposed he will be admitted an Evidence for convicting his Comrades.

From the Whitehall Evening- Post, July 2. ' Hague, July 4. We have still reason to believe, that the projected India Company at Ostend will at last come to nothing, or at least be suspended for many Years to come, at the pressing Instances of two powerful Courts. A certain Prince wishes that what remains to be regulated concerning the Affairs of the North, may be referred to the De- termination of the Cambray Congress, as well as that important Work of the Quadruple Alliancc, which, as is suggested, establishes the Peace of Europe.

' The Court of Vienna still uses Delays in grant- ing the Investiture of the Dutchies of Bremen and Vehrden. We are not a little surprized that the Court of France seconds so vigorously the Efforts of the Dutch against the Establishment of an In- dia Company in the Austrian Netherlands, be- cause by the Barrier Treaty the French are not to concern themselves about such matters. They write from Dresden., that 8ooo saxons are ready to march to Poland upon occasion. LONDON, July 4. Last Sunday Evening died of a Consumption, the Right Hon. Sir William St. Quintin of Scam- ston in the County of York, Bart, one of the Members in this present Parliament for the Town of Kingston upon Hull, one of the Vice Treasu- rers of Ireland, and of his Majesty's most Hon.
