18th Century bureaucratic Austrian German - brief query

Here is a charming sentence:

"Voannebst das Stadt-Gericht in der anher erstatteten Auskunft noch weiters beyrucket, dass der obgennante Professor L und Chyrurgus W auch noch erinnert haetten, was massen ihres Ermessens die Tortur nicht nur in hoc casu specifico, sondern ueberhaupt niemals intercalariter vorgenommen werden koennte."

I would be most grateful if someone who is better initiated into these arcana than I am could help me out with the italicized phrase at the beginning.
