FROM Holland -we hear, (hat the people there are very uneasy about wo projects now on foot, one upon the north, and the other upon the south fide of that republick. The first is the East-India company proposed hy the king of Prussia to be set up in Embden, which may draw many Dutch merchants to settle there, and very much diminish their exports of East-India soods to the Biltick and Germany ; and the other is a canal which it proposed to he made from Ostend, by the way of Bruges, to Ghent, deep add wide enough for three-mast ships ; and as from Ghent there isa communication by rhe liver Schelde down to Antwerp, and up the Schelde and the Lys throueh a great part of Flandeu, and some part os Hainault, they think it will diminish the:r trade with the Austrian Netherlands, tor which reason they have sound out, that this last project it conrrary to the spirit of the treaty of Westphalia, and are making strong remonstrances against it at the court of Vienna.

The k.ng of Portugal has given orders, that for the future no person condemned to dsath by the inquisition, shall be executed, until the sentence has been seen and approved by his council, and signed by his majesty ; and at the fame time he has given great fit i iaction to (he people at Lisbon, by obtaining of the court of Spain, an explanation of the treaty concluded by hre father, by which it is stipulated, that the limits ot the two empires in America shall be marked out and sully settled, before the town of Sacrament be given up: And that the term of five yeais shall be allowed for that purpose ; in which time the merchants hope, that some new incident may happen for preventing the cession of that town, which they look on as the bulwark of the mines in Rrazil, and their chief mart in that part of the world.

The Genoese have at last agreed on a regulation of their bank of St. George, which bears date (he isth ulr. N. S. and was published the 6th inst. In the preamble they emphatically set forth the mis. fortunes brought noon the republick in the year 1746, which forced them, for the first (ime, to lay hands on the sacred deposit, to draw out of it 15,000,000 of livers, and consequently to stop payment of its notes. Now to restore the credit of this bank, they have determined, that in a very short time all the old hills and notes of this bank shall be united, and constitute a new fund, to be called Consicraaone, and to be divided into so many actions or shares, of 100 livers each, bank money, which actons sliall eveiy year in certain portions be publickly drawn by lot, and paid by th: trea

FFAIRS, 1751. 47

sorer according to (heir just value of »oo effective livers, tank money. As a linking fund for this purpose, the republick hat made over 10 the house of St. George, aa they call the bank, several new duties; and to make this fund the mo>e considerable, the house is to pay out of its old income, half the interest settled upon the actions of the new stock, till its entire extinction.

The archbishop of Florence has published ■ mandate, by order of the emperor, and with the permissi in of the pope, enjoining all the clergy, and all religious communities "f both sexes in Tuscany to bring in exact accounts of their respective revenues, pensions, tec. to the end that the government may settle (he share they arc to bear in the publick charge of the state.

The infanta, duchssi os Parma, was on the ad. inst. N. S. brought to bed of a prince.

From Berlin we hear, that by the plan for the administration of justice, established by his Prussian majesty in hit dominions, the court of judicature in that city determined 560 law-suits during the year i7<<-, not-so much as one heing left undecided ; for which dispatch hit majesty wrote a very handlbme letter of Hunks to baron Cocceji, his chancellor.

Fium Peteriburgh we have a long manifesto, containing the reasons for their minister's leaving the court of Prussia so ahiup'ly a* mentioned in our Magazine sor December last. They complain, 1. That the court of Prussia affected at a certain period to treat their ministers residing there with as much contempt as indifference, x. That his Prussian majesty refused to give leave to the Russians in his army to return home, tho' they had berti permitted to enter into hit service only sor the sake improvement. 3. That the empress having caused Capt. Staakelbcrg, an officer in the Prussnn service, but her subject, to be arrested for several misdemetnors which he confessed, (he court of Prussia by way of reprisal arrested (wo Russian officers in their service, who desired leave to return home. 4. That the empress having by proclamation recalled all her subjects in foreign service, the court of Prussia not only refused to allow i' to be puhlilhed in the Berlin G-zctte, but threamed her minister for signifying it by way of letter to the Russi in officers in the Prussian service. 5. That her minister at Berlin had been forbid to visit PoizJam and Sans soucy, along with the Bri'ish and Imperial ministers. 6. That her minister was not invited to a grand feast at ;. hirlottenbourg, to which all the other foreign ministers were invited. Ice. Ice.
