THE EdinburghEveningGourant. TUESDAY SEPTEMBER i. 1752. MAILS from FRANCE and H o L I. A N D. WHITEHALL EVENING POST, Auguft 27. BERLIN, Auguft 26. THE Abbey de Prade, who has made fo much Noife in France by the Thefts which he maintained in the Sorbonne, and who was condemned there, as advancing heterodox Tenets, is lately arrived here. He feems to in- tend to fix here, and to employ himfelf in Literature, where- in he is faid to be well veiled. BRUSSELS, Auguft 27. The Government beinginform'd, that gre. rt Quantities of old Linnen, fuch as is made ufe of to make Paper, are fent into foreign Countries, which is ex- prefly contrary to our Laws, and would infallibly prove the Ruin of the Manufa& uries of Paper eftablilh'd in this Country, has iffued an Ordinance ro prohibit the fending Linen Rags, out of the Provinces, upon Pain of Imprifon- iment and paying a Fine of rcoo Florins, befides Forfetureof the Goods, and that of the Carts, Hor- ies, Boats, 6cc. made ufe of to carry them. LONDON. It is reported that a Squadron of Men of War will befent to the Weft Indies, in order to oppofe the Depredations of the Spanilh Guard de Coitas. By a Veffel arrived at Amfterdam from the Mufqnito Shore, there is Advice, that fhe was drove off the Ceait by the Spaniards, who took Capt Mofe'iv on the Coall, from the Bay of Honduras and four or five Engiifh Veflels going to the Bay. There were then one Man of War, one Chc- beque, a Slr. op, and two Periagers; therefore it is improbable for any Veflel to efcape either going or coming: fo that it appears as if the Spaniards were determined to rout out the Englifb Ships. Capr. Mofcly came out of the Bay along with Capt. Rand, who arrived at Amflerdam about live ' Weeks ago. In Confequence of the above News the Ja- maica Merchihtshave appointed a Meeting of all concerned. GENERAL EVENING POST, AUGUST 27. GENOA, Aug. 14.

Neither Exhortations nor Intreatieshave yet been able to procure the Cardinal of York's Return to this City; Nay, we have loft all Hopes of feeing the Breach made up between him and his Father, fmce this imprudent Declaration of the latter, ' That, as a King and a Father, ' he did not mean to bind himfelf in any Conditions; and ' that he Ought not to expe< 5t any thing from his Son but un- ' bounded Obedience, Refpedt and SubmifTton.' The Pope has fent frefb Inftru& ions to his Nuncio at the . French Court, tending to bring the Prelates of Fiance into a moderate Way of thinking. LONDON. By Letters from Petersburgh we find that Count Rafou- mofski, Hernnan or Vice- Roy of Little Ru- ffia, is endeavour- ing to make his Court vye with the Metropolis of the Em- pire in Point of polite Pieafutesand Entertainments; to which End he has lent for feveral Men ofLetters and eminent Mu- sicians from Italy, in order to fet up an Opera in the Place of his Refidcncc; but whilft he purfues thefe Meafures, he does not negled the - correcting of Abufes in civil and military Matters, 8cc. An Edift of the Emprefs Queen has juft been publifhedin the Netherlands, by way of Reprifals for the Arret itfucd by the Parliament of Mm the 8th of July 17 51, enforcing the Execution of the EdiCt of the Montli of January 1681, whereby, " Louis XlV. excluded all Foreigners from hold- ing Priories, Prebend?, ReCtoilbips, Claapeis, or any other Benefices whatfoevcr; forbid the receiving of Novices, and admitting of Men and Women into the Monaftries of either Ssx, unlefs they were Subjects of his Kingdom; and that for die future no Foreigners fhould be elected Superiors of thctl'e P. ' rtiaftries, & c." This Edift of Louis XlV. not having been rigoroufly executed, the Subje< fls of the Crown of France were tollcrated in the Auftrian Netherlands, where there are actually near 1300 holding Church Dignities and Benefices, or living in the Mouafteries. But the Parliament of Metz having behaved in the Man'ner abovementioned, and more- over enjoined all Foreigners in the Convents within their Ju- rii'didion to depart the Kingdom of France within two Months, the Emprefs has judged it expedient to follow their Example, in order to fecure to her Subjects the Eccldiaflica' Dignities and Benefices lying in the Territories of her Dominions. r EXPORTS to France from the Port of London only, 1751.
