To day a 1000. Soldiers are trayned at Nec­kerhausen, The Spaniards keepe themselues at Franckendal, it is thought that they will march to Newstat.

The 30. of September, she horsemen of Ouer­trout, haue ransacked the suburbes of Weinheim, they will likewise ransacke the Towne it selfe, be­cause that they haue yéelded themselues to the Spaniards.

At Heydelburgh they make before Newenheym a land partition, and a Bulwarke, whereupon great pieces of Ordenance may be planted. On the other side they haue taken downe the tower called Trots Keyser, and filled it with earth, and péeces of Canon shall be set vpon it.

These of Gulick haue made a Sconce on the Ro­erbridge, through which they can fall out, they haue also these dayes past shot furiously out of it, to hin­der the Spaniards from making their fortifications, whereouer some were killed. In the meane time the gates of Gulick stand yet open, and the Cattle goeth yet out to pasture, and the women and Children of the Soldiers in Gulick, are yet suffered to come in the towne, And thus the Towne and fortresses is yet well prouided of all necessaries.

The Duke of Rohan hath with him 20000. men, and hath sent word to the King, that he will not come to any agréement, before all the affaires of France be first pacified, and by fault thereof, that he will resist him to the vttermost, although he should be forced to auoyde the Kingdome.

We heare from Rees, that they worke yet hard on the new Forts ouer the Rhine, that right ouer the Town of Emmerick another Fort should he made, otherwise no mutation of things was done, nor also of the Spanish side, it séemeth that by reason of the long raining weather at this time, no further enter­prises shall be vnder taken.
