Numb. 8431. Thurfday, " October 1.7, 1728. ' Lisbon, September 24. ^ H E King, who continues in perfect Health, as well as all the Royal'Family, is now and then in Conference with his Minifters about the prefent Jun& ure. \ ye are ftill without Certainty as to the Time v^ hen the- Princefs of Afturias will be exchanged for the Princefs of Brazil. Don Diego de Mcndoza Corte Real, lately his Majefty's Envoy Extraordinary at the Hague, is come Home by the Way of France and Spain, and has had the Honour to wait upon his Majefty to give him an Account of kis Negotiations. Within thele few Days came into the Tago a great Number of Merchant Ships of feveral Nations, as likewife four Maltefe Men of War, with' a Corfair of Sallee whom they have taken j there are- alfo arrived three Englifh Men of War ; Captain Weller, who commands one of them, being come in 15 Days from Sallee,, reports, thai be had left three other Englift Met), of Wai crwling off that Port, to hinder thofe CoHaiTs from coming out; and- that the Saletines had indeed promiled to let go the Englifh Prize they had made in its Voyage, from Marleilles to Hainbourg, tut had afterwards confifeated the Ship and Cargo, and fent the Crew in Slavery to Mequinez. We | iave received Letters from Rio de Jane/ ro, dated, the/ 30th of April laft, with Advice, that the laft Portuguele Man of War fet out from hence for that Port, was- tafely arrived there, having on board the Crew of our Lady de Montferrat, another Man of War, which was caft away in the padage ; that there was plenty of every Thing at Rio de Janeyro; ahd they computed that the Merchant Fleet, which is ready to let fail, might be in the Tago agaiuft the Clofe of November next. Thofe Letters add, that one of our Men of War arrived the 30th of April from Goa into the Bahia. The Engliih Packet Boat the Hanover, i § arrived here in four Days from Falmouth. < Peters& ourg; Sept. 2 5 . T h e y are ftill taken up, v Cronftadt with unrigging the Fleet, purfuant to the'Emperour's OTc fers fent to General Count de Munich, who after having delivered them to- Admiral Gordon to fee them executed, fet out for Catherine HofT; from whence he is daily expe& ed here! As the Rivers and Canals" are commonly frozen up in thefe Parts about the Middle of O& ober, the Merchants lofe no Time,, being continually lading a great Number of Veffels with all forts of Merchandizes, in order to fend then* by the Canal of Ladoga to Mofcow and other Places of the Empire. A Plan of a new Road from hente to Mofcow has been prefented to the Emperour, which will be fhorter and more convenient: JTis'allured, that this . Plan having been approved, they will fet Men at Work next Spring for its Execution. This Road, whieh in its dircdt Line croffcs feveral Forefts, and paffes through Novogrod and Olonitz, will be one oi the fiheft in Europe; We have received Advice from Spain, that our Ships . which were in the Ports of that Kingdom were returning Home with rich Cargoes. The Directors of Commerce are finding out Means for increafing the Trade with Spain ind France, by fending thither a greater, Number of Ships, and ' tis aflured the • Emperour has promifed to order Men of War for their Convoy to fecure them againft the In'iults c* f the Corfairs. The Sum fubferibed for that Commerce' amounts to 800,000 Rubles; befides the other Sums' which will be advanced by the Merchants for carrying on the Commerce to China.: . Madrid, Sept. 28. The King keeps ftill his Chamber, but the Royal Family takes daily the Drverfio'n of walking m the Palace Gardens, and elfe where. " OilThurfday, the Anniverfary of Don Ferdinand Prilice of Afturias's Birth- Day, who then entered into his rtfth Year, was celebrated at Court with great Magnificence ; that Prince, after having received Compliments on this Oecafiori of the Grandees, Minifters and Officers of the Court, and the foreign . Minifters, dined in pubiick with the other Infahtes ip the Princels of Brazil's' Apartment, who made him a Prefent of two fine Brafs Statues richly gilt, arid the Queen prefented him alio with a Gold Watch fet with Brilliants. Don Jofeph Patinho, Prefident of the Chamber of Finances, came back fome Days " ago from Segovia and St. Ildephonfb, whither he Weot to view the Mints, The chief Merchants, feconded . by fome fbreigh Minifters, have made ftrong Remonftrances to thfe Court againft the laft' railing of the Species; but we do not hear as yet that any Regard has been had thereto:..
