Numb. [...]6 THE Parliamentary Intelligencer, COMPRISING The Sum of Forraign Intelligence, with the Affairs now in Agitation in England, Scotland, and Ireland. For Information of the People. Published by Order of the late Council of State. From Monday June 18. to Monday June 25. 1660.

THere was lately an Adverrisement in some Books, published by the Office of Intelligence, of a misreport scandalous and false (as he calls it) concerning the death of Major Aberin, who as he saith, died a natural death, and lived a pious life, which was well known to all that lived about him, and confirmed by many persons of Quality that were present with him when he died. My Correspondent in Scot­land writing none of the best hand, and it being a Scotch name (a thing I am not very well acquainted with) in haste I mistook Aberin for Abernethy; I have inquired of several Scotch Gentlemen in Town, whether there were any Major Aberin in Scotland, whom my mistake might have injured, but I cannot hear of any of that name, and shall willingly [Page 402] confess it an Error, if the Newsmonger can in his next acquaint me of any one that know such a man in Scotland, though he pretends he was well known by all about him, to be a man of a pious Life, and that it was confirmed by many persons of quality who were present, that he died a natural death.

When a Friend shewed me in his Book this Advertise­ment, I read some few lines further of the Votes of the House of Saturday last, in his Book called the Publick In­telligencer, wherein he tells you first, that Col. Fleetwood, late Lieutenant General, had rendered himself to the Speak­er, whereas it was Col. George Fleetwood, one of the Kings Triers, never known by that Title of Lieutenant General. In the second Vote he makes that the House ordered the Books of Mr. John Goodwin and Mr. John Milton to be burnt whenas they only resolved that his Majesty should be desired to order it. In the third Vote, That all the woods of the Kings and Queens Lands that were not really sold, should be seised upon; whereas all Wood and Timber felled off the said Lands, are to remain and continue upon the said Lands, without farther disposal, till the Parliament shall give a farther order therein. In his fourth Vote he puts Cheney for Chancery. I have no time to amend all his faults, it would swell my Book too much, but by this you may judge the rest. I shall only give a further account of some faults which I am desired by some Members of the House to take notice of. That at a Committee of the E­lections on Saturday June 16. he seems to insinuate some unhandsome carriage of Mr. Richard Ballice, and that they resolved the Petition concerning the choice at Evesham to be vexatious, whenas his demeanors there was observed to be no other then civil, and no such resolve made concerning the Petition▪ I am likewise to take notice of an antient List of the Privy Council, taken out of an old Book of ours, which he in his last Publick Intelligencer, put out as [...] [...]ist now, excluding out of it, the Right Honorable [...] [Page 403] Howard, to the no small inju [...]y of that Noble Person, whom the King hath been ple [...]sed so highly to honor.

From St. John De Luz, 13 June.

The Oath taken by the two Kings was drawn according to that of the Treaty of Vervins, whereof the Acts being exchanged by the two cheief Ministers, they withdrew, their Majesties having desired to be alone at their taking leave. the two Kings and the two Queens could not forbear tears, and it was observed that the King of Spain having bid fare­well [Page] unto all, out of his passion to kiss again his daughter, did run unawares upon the French Territories. The new Queen was conducted to the rich Coach the King gave her by the Duke of Bournonville her Knight of Honor and the Count de Hautefort her first Gentleman Usher. Their Ma­jesties were at one end of the Coach, the Queen-Mother at the other, and the Kings Brother at the boot: the new Queen cryed all the while, and being asked by the Queen Mother, whether she would return into Spain, she answe­red she owed that to her Fathers tenderness, and that she was not sorry to leave Spain upon so good a Subject as the making of Peace. They arived late here, and the King taking the new Queen by the hand conducted her to the Queen-Mothers Lodgings, being attended by 25 Spanish Ladies, that came along with her. The King, the two Queens, the Kings brother and the 3 Princesses supped to­gether. The King kept company with the new Queen until she was a bed, and came to see her in the morning at her Rise­ing, and saw her dressing herself still in the Spanish Fashion, with a Waiscoat of White Sattin, a very short Petycoat, a black Lace tyed about her neck, no haires upon her Forehead, and those behind tyed. In the afternoon she passed her time in looking upon the Cloths and Jewels the King gave her, which she liked very well. The Queen Mother gave to the King of Spain a rich Watch, and the King a Diamond worth Twenty Thousand Crowns, to Don Lewis D' H [...]ro a Sword worth 40000 Livers, and a rich Sword to a Spanish Grandee who presently threw his own into the River, and said he would never draw this, but for the service of the two Kings. The new Queens gave to the King a C [...]bine [...] [...]uli [...] of rich perfumes; The King of Spain hath given to [...] Daughter eight Truncks of perfu­med ski [...], [...] P [...]st [...]lles, Spanish red and other [...] King a rich Hatband, and [...] eight [...]o the Kings [...] King hath [...] [...] manship. [Page 408] The 8 instant the Queen wrote to the King her Father and would not seale her Letter untill the King had [...] it, to shew she would do nothing without his privity, [...] the King refused to see it, leaving her to the French Freedom; at the first enterview none was suffered to come into the roome. There have been several debates for their charges between the Captains of the Guards, and even between the Bishops of Bayonne and Perigueux for the pre­senting of the Gospel to the King when he took the oath, but Cardinal Mazarin did it himself. For avoiding the like upon the day of the Marriage, and to prevent the contending for ranks and places, none was assigned, but all sate promiscu­ously, leaving all to every ones civility. The Bishop of Pe­riguex, de Langres, and Valence officiated there as Almo­ners for the King, the Queen Mother and the Kings Bro­ther; some difference was between the two first, about hold­ing of the Canopy over the Kings head. The Kings Bro­ther led the Queen, whose train of six Ells long, was car­ried by Madamoiselle D' Alericon, and D' Valois with the Princess of Carignan. and their own train was carried by the Counts de la Fejullade, and St. Mesme, and by the Marqu [...]s de Cire.

One of the Tapers was presented by the Kings Brother and the other by Madamoiselle, whose Train was carried by Mr. de Mancini. The Cardinal Mazarin carryed the Gos­pel to be kissed by their Majesties. That day, the Queen dined alone, and the King with the Queen Mother, after dinner abundance of Gold and Silver Medalls were thrown among the people out of the windows. At night their Ma­jesties supped together at the Queen-Mothers Lodgings, whol eft them not till they were abed. They rose the next day about eleven a clock. Yesterday there was a conference about the business of Savoy, Mantua and Portugal, the King being unwilling to leave any thing undecided. Yet som­thing will be referred till the Court is at Paris to be treated there with the Count de Fuensaldagne. The Prince of Conti and many Grandees are gone before.

St. John de Luz, June 12. 1660.

Besides the particulars of late here, which have bin so various and many, that it hath bin impossible either to re­member them, or to send them all at once, take these follow­ing: At the first interview of the two Kings, which was the 6 instant, the French Horse and Foot were disposed all a­long the Rivers side, the French and Switzer Guards, be­ing at the head of them, at the foot of the Mountain▪ all of them in blew Cassocks, with Gold and Silver Gallume and a white Cross before and behind; next to them were the Kings Gensdarms, the Lifeguard, the Kings Muske­teers on horseback, and the light horsemen. The Pages both of the great and lesser Stables, were likewise along the Rivers side with a Led-horse every one of them in their hands, all in rich imbroidered footcloath. The King of Spain's Guards on foot stood all along the other side of the River (over against the French Guards) in their yel­low Cassocks, with the Kings Arms imbroidered in Silk. The King being come to the Bridge of the Isle, made a halt, tarrying until the King of Spain was landed. Then the two Kings advanced on towards the other with the like gravity, until they came to the Line that divides their Do­minions, and there both falling upon their knees, im­braced each other with a reciprocal joy. After their Com­plements, the King saluted the new Queen his Spouse, whilst the King of Spain saluted the Queen Mother his Sister, who having told her Brother, that the King her Son, and her self, were much ingaged to him, for travelling so far in the heat of weather to meet them; he answered, that had he not bin able to come in a Coach or on Horseback, he would have come a foot to satisfie his desire of seeing the King, and once more before his death to embrace her. Then were Madamoisele, the two Princesses her Sisters▪ and the Prince of Conti, presented to him by the said Queen Mother; and afterwards the Count of Charr [...]st, Captain [Page 410] of the Guards, brought in all the Grandees of the French Court, according to the List drawn by his Majesty, with the Cardinal and Monsieur de Villeroy to sa­lute his Spanish Majesty. When Marshal de Turenne was presented to him, the King of Spain said to his sister, I know him well, he hath caused me often to have little rest in the night. At the same time the Spanish Grandees were presented to the King by Don Lewis d'Aro. After these mutual Complements, a Table was brought in, and both Kings kneeling down before it, swore the observation of the Peace, each of them in his own language, with the Ce­remonies mentioned in my last: Besides, the eternal and inviolable Peace, they swore each to other a very strict a­mity. Then all their Guards and Forces gave out many shoots and volleys, the Trumpets blowing mainly in the interim. At their going out of the Hall, the two Kings to avoid turning their backs one to another, went backward, still making courtesies one to another until they were out of the Room. The like was observed in the conference of the next day, at which time the two Courts took leave one of the other. The French Court being upon their vvay hither, not far from the Isle, vvhilst the New Queens Ba­gage vvent by, being carryed by 24 Mules, vvith fine co­verings with the Kings Arms, all of Crimson Velvet, and her four Coaches vvherein vvere her Ladies and Maids of Honour; the Queen Mother gave her a Collation. Being arrived here, the King and the said Queen Mother, did what they could to make the new Queen forget her ovvn Country, and the absence of her Father, to vvhom she vvrote, as I have told you before, and her Letter was car­ried by the Marquis of Villequier. The 9th, the last Ce­remony of the Marriage vvas performed. About noon, the King being in black clothes, and the new Queen being dressed after the French way, and led by Monsieur the Kings brother, vvent by a Gallery through the Files of the Guards, and of abundance of Gentlemen that vvere upon [Page 411] Duty. The said Queen had on her head a Crovvn of Dia­monds & about her the Royal Mantle imbroidered and full of Gold Flovverd [...]luces, the tra [...]n vvhereof above six Ells long vvas carryed, as I told you formerly. The Duke d'Uzez led the Queen Mother. The Cardinal Mazarin, and the Abbot of Coastin, officiated as the Kings Almoners, and the Bishop of Bayonne in his Pontificalibus, married their Majesties, and consecrated the Wedding Ring. The King received the Ring from the Bishop, and put it upon the Queens Finger, to whom he gave the pieces of Gold consecrated with the Ring by the Bishop: As they went to the Offering, Monsieur presented the Taper to the King, and Madamoiselle to the Queen: The Abbot of Coastin, and the Bishop of Langres, carryed the Canopy over their heads. The officiating Bishop, after the Mass, made them a short exhortation about the Marriage; the Medals thrown out of the windows, after the Dinner, mentioned in my last, had the Pictures of the King and Queen looking one upon the other, of one side with their Names, and on the other side, Clouds dropping abundance of Rain, with that Motto, Non laet [...]or alier, 1660. others had the Kings Head alone of one side, and a Sun with Clouds on the other side, with this Motto, Faecundus ignibus ardet; and some had the Cardinals Head, with his name on one side, and an Ancher on the other, with this Motto, Firmando fir­mior haeret. About 8 a clock at night, the Queen Mother brought the Queen to the Kings quarters, where they sup­ped together, with the Kings brother, who gave the Shirt to the King when he went to bed. The Abbot of Orval, one of the Kings Almoners, blessed the Nuptial Bed, and the Queen being a bed, the Queen Mother and all the compa­ny wit [...] drew, and the King from eleven a clock at night, was a bed till elven the next day.

The same day, the 12. of June, the Court came from St John de Luz for Burdeaux, and is to c [...]me to Fontain­blew, and from thence go to Compeigne, to be nearer the Frontiers upon the disbanding of the Army.
