T HE Fmperor hat pubhlified an ordinance rfr fup-
IPreflingall the 1'rrc MIlfoos Lodges in the Auf-
trian rNerhrlndi except two, or at molf three, whidl
are permitted to be held in this city, fubjcd to the
regulations prefcribcd in the fillt ordinance publiled
at Vienna refpeding the fraternity of Free-Maflun.
U i n i c, -7n. y.
The States of the Province of Irht have he ad an
extraordinary meeting, to tahe into rnnfdclatioa tlhe
the affair ol Wyk. At this iecti.gi the re ort of that
held April olth, was read, at lie end c which the
commissioner, who were appointed to enquire into the
.iaair, and give their advice, add the [Lllowiing as their
opinion 'That flnce hitherto all prorped of recon-
ciliation ha vaniflbd, and all mean of teftoring peace
and tranquility to that place have been fruidefi, it is
necclfary to employ fore*, and confcquientlydifpatch an
varied commiflion to oblige then to return to their
bounden duty to the State; that in the oecan time,
before they proceeded to this extremity, the states
m.iy give notice to the confederate provinces, that they
may fre the necellity which impels to thefe rigorous
mealures."- The States having deliberated on this,
rroflved to call another extraordinary meeting on the
t1th of tlhis month, in order that every member may
have time to rxo-mine the pronpoflion, and give hi,
advice. The city of Utrecht has already declared, that
they will not accede to he propoftion.
7-ne 1C. On the 5th ofth.i month the Regency of
Wyh published a memorial addreffcd to the Citizens of
that place, in which they declare, that, as they have
he ird that it is the intention of the States of Utrecht to
fcnd troops among them, they will endeavour to prevent
their entrance, and will repel force to for.e, and they
give this notice to the burgcf.s and inhabittnts of that
city and jurifdidlion, that they may take every proper
flp to fcuirc their persons and effclds as they may
think proper.
On the Sth of this month an ieprefi arrived with
difpatches for the principal BurgonIafter, from the
Grand Bailiff, the Comte de Welderen. The Grand
Bailiffinfornm him, that he doesn't intend to obey the
invitation of the Burgctles. A letter came at the fame
time from the Court of Judicature, addreflcd to the
tMagiflrates, in which the Court declare, that being
authorized by the States to publish 3 proclamation for
reprisals on the inhabitants of Wyk, on account of their
detaining the Bailiff, they have lent funic copies of it,
that they may be pulled up, and in the mean time they
in ifon the Bailiff's being given up, together with all
paper found upon him, an of which he was deprived.
IThe principal Burgomafler immediately communicated
this letter to the judges, and he was advised not to pub-
lift the proclamation, and a confultation is to be held
to-morrow to confidcr of entering a protell againfl t is
proceeding of the Court of Uttrchr, which is confider-
ed man infringement on theconflitutin.
The Amhbalador fram this Rctublic, at Conftanti-
nople, ha* received orders from tho States General to
demand in favour of Dutch hips, the paffage of the
Dardanelles, and the privilege of navigating the Black
Sea, conformably with the ancient treaties fulillingl
between the Porte and the Seven United Provinice.
A L a s f n R, April 24.
Two American Negociators castle here a (trt time
fince, with a commifion to propofe term for fecuring
the Ikips of their nation from capture by our corfairs,
but their overtures were rejeded, and the strangers are
returned. The roth of this month an Algerine frigate
brought into this port the Phillipine, an American
verfel, bound from Philadelphia to Oftend.
April ij. 'Thire is every reason to hope that the
peace lately concluded with Spain will be both folid
and durable. M. d'Efpilly, hb his ability and good
cnfr, has won over the people of this regency, and
found means to have fuch a treaty concluded as muni
be an advantage to both national.
V t N I c s, Ad" I T.
Two principal matters at prefcit throw oun republic
into the greatest confulou and alarm. Our dilputes
with the 'unifiansare the force of endleft cprnoce in
provisions, ammunition, in fitting out thip, in order
to support the frffngth of the Chevalier Eno's Meet.
All taefe precautions have not tended to Shorten the
war; and the trifling advantages we have gained, are
far from cnmpenfating for the expence of me and
money, whbic tbch apeditie require.


Ths second objelq of our alarms is fill mere preling ;
the Pacha of Scutari hab nsade 'war more upon our str-
Iitories than hole of hit ow n nation. He is continually
making excurlions which are artenlndd with shocking
fcener-, f loodlhed. We have f'nond no good effeti
from the orders which the Porte gave to all the Iachas
ti, protred arainlt the rebel., and we begin to fufi-cl
foul pl.iy in this (nnilut' of the Divan. On tJlls amount
tlI Senate arc doubly viglI.,it iin making head ag.igilt

The manufadlures of Oreat-Britain are equally the
envy and admiration of this great mc'ropolis. SLvcral
houfir have lately been crecdd for employing workmen
in different branches of hard are, by tiuoe of the firft
people in this kingdom. They are much inferior to
ours, but highly extolled by the vender..
A new regulation of the I'ol-Office is t take
place here, somewhat upon the plan which has latcl
been adopted in Londott.

new order from the King for regulating the miwine
uniform, that it is entirely formed upon that worn by
the Britifh naval Commnaders. Even the anchor upon
the button bas been introduced in preference to the
fleur de lit. In Ihort, Englifh falhioni new prevail
here, as much as theFrench did with us formerly."

him to the Court hour, le Palais. Caglinflro was is
grc soloij, hung down on his shoulders, and was tied at the
end with an enornions bunch of party-coloured ribbon;
he wore very little powder. The Comte feemed per-
fca0ly compueid ; he was even fean laughing with the
