CoNSTANTINOPLE, Jan 28.
SEVERAL changes have take place in our
Miniflry; the Stamboul-Effmndi, or prin-
cipal officer of the police uf thi capital, was
dcpofed the 1 th of this month, and ordered
into exile the following day Sulciman-Kiaii-
Bey, or lieutenant to the Grand Vilir, was alfo
depofed, and he is fucceeded by Alta-Beg Reis
Effendi, or Miniftii for foreign affairs, which
office was heretofore held by his uncle Abdu-
rczak.
The fleet under the command of the Captain
Pacla continues cruising in the ncighbourhood of
Ifles of Scio and Mytilcne, where they continue
to take in supplies of provisions and warlike
.ores. The Captain Pacha has dispatched fome
veffls to Alexandria, under the command of his
Lieutenant.
MALTA, July I.
The Grand Mailer lately fent a pair of rich
bitn.leti, fet with rubies, to Madane Dufreloi,
in cutuiiderstion of the brave, hero;,., ->*d ,l ,lr
Lxtraordinary cnnsllt ot that lady against an
.lgcrine corf.ii which attacked the hip on
board of which lie was a paffenger.-This hip
was failing to Genoa, and having been overtaken
by the Barbarians, was fo roughly handled by
the firit bioadfide, that (le was in danger of
finking. The crew of the corfair taking advan-
tage of the confullon, attempted to board the
Illp, word in hand, which was on the point of
fuirrcndering, when Madame Dofrenoi fuizing
the fabre of one of their wonndcd sailors, fought
with ifudl courage as allonilhcd even the enemies
tllemfclves. All thole withlin her rtach were
overthrown. The crew of the Genoefe (hip,
re-animated by tlhi example, performed prodi-
gics of valour, and after an obhliniate engage-
menst, board and board, obliged the corfair to
Iheer off. Madame Dufrenoi, on ier arrival at
this port, was received by tile Marquisa de tl.
Crilleaux, who complinicntrd her, crowned her
with laurels, and fent hei portrait to the Qucen
of France.

The States of Holland and Well-Friefland
have in a late debate upon the affair of the com,
mand of the Hague, taken a rcfolutJon confor-
mable to the report of the teli of November,
1785, by a majority of to cities agaitll 9, and
consequently againll the advice of the majority
of the Regency of Aniterdam: The following
is an account of the cities that voted fer and
against on the above occasion, viz.
Cities of the majority : Dordrecht, Haerlem,
Leyden, Gouda, Gorcum, Schiedam, Scloon-
hoven, Alkmaer, Monnickendam, and Purme-
rende.
Cities of the minority: Delft, Amnfterdam,
Rottenlam, Brielle, Hoorn, Enkhuizen, Edam,
Medemblick, and the Equetrian Order.
ag4yl 9. On the ad ofthismonth the States
General debated upon two propofals which came
before them relative to tle anfwers to be given
to the memorials prcented by the Pruffan and
Briilh Ambaffadore, but previous to a final
concdufon on that fubje&, the resolution was
uakn ad refr~ndum by all the provinces.

The Eccleliaflics in the Emperor's dominions
fecm willing to come to a composition, and to
give up one half to fave the reft, or at leaf to
put off the evil day, and prevent for a time the
total ruin of that flupendous falric which the
Court of Rome had creed. The Archbi(hop
of Milan has, in the name of the Church, pub-
lifhed his Imperial Majcly's Ordonnance for the
reduction of the number of holidays from hence.
forth to be obfened in Auftrian Lombardy.
The only ones now to be kept are Ealer and the
Monday following, Pentecoft and the day fol-
lowing, every Sunday throughout the year.
Chrillmas-day, Circumcifion, Epiphany, Afcen-
fion, Corpus Chrifti, the Purifcation, Annun.
citation, Affumption, Nativity and Conception
of the Virgin, St. Peter's, St. Paul's, All Saints,
St. Stephen the Martyr, and St. Ambrofe, who
is by the Imperial Mandate constituted patron of
the whole diocese. The vigils preceding the
above days are to be observed, as alto Lent,
Ember week, the fourth and faixh days of Ad-
vent, and the three Rogation days. The Com.
memoration of all the ApoRles is to be celebrated
on the day after St. Peter and St. Paul, anl that
ol all the Martyrs on St. Stephen's day.
Whoever is deteced in celebrating ay of thd
fupprelred fellavals, 1 Lu pay a hne of ten crown
fur each offence.
The Italian method of reckoning time is abo-
lilhed in Auftrian Lombardy, and by the Impe-
rial orders all clocks are to be conftru&ed and
regulated as thofe of the Northern nations of
Europe.
From a conversation that paffed ip the Houle
of Peers on Saturday, between Earl Bathuril and
Lord Sydney, refpetling the Euftatius papers, it
is not unlikely that this affair will be firidlly fcru-
tinized in the course of next felions. Earl Ba-
thurl faid,it was a mol shameful piece ofbufinefs;
that the nation and the captor would be many
hundred thousand pounds the worfe of it. Lord
Sydney endeavoured to often the matter ; when
the venerable nobleman replied, My Lord, I
fay, and I defire it to be known to the world,
that the suffering thofe papers to be put into the
hands of our enemies, is a Mifprifion of TreaCon,
and it is my with, that the matter should be
fearclhd to the bottom, let who will be concern-
ed in it."
The St. Euflatius bufinefi is likely to prove
before it is finished, a bunnefs of the fi im-
portance.
The 50,oool. a year enjoyed by the Prince of
Wales, does not arife from a Parliamentary
grant, but is an allowance out of the Civil Lift.
paid by his Majety.
Exntra if a Lear frOnm O/fed, July a.
We now reckon no fewer than five Protel-
tant churches or chapels in the Aufkrian Low-
countries, and they are likely to increase, on ac-
count of the Emperour having tolerated the fulef
enjoyment of religious fentitmnts, provided they
are not mixed with political questions. The
church at Bruges was lately the chapel of the
Convent of St. Antoine, bellowed by the Empe-
ror as a free-gift,"
According t a letter from BrLTfels of the ift
infant, Lord Torrington has fucceded in his en-
deavour with the Aufirian Government; and it
has been agreed on to review the prefcot lyflcn
of commucrt twpm btk AW a- cl_.
