HJLE vvc weraaLrmcd with the Re. pons or Thiin.is Kou'.i Kan's Ce-iiuns ag-iiiii the Poitr. we rocciv'd Auviceio.it he s redue'd to a very lickhlli Situ-tion, out of which he will frr.d i: diiS.-u10 extricate hijni'elf. Our Letters from Ginirom of the ;th cf Mdrcn give us the following Dttaii i.n ihis Suf-jeft : Ti.o.ni^s Kouli K.iti, after ;he Advantages he gain'd over the Cre_t Mogul, Iht-wv'd a gie.it D fire co leturn fpctdily u Pcrfu.   Stveial Reai'ons duenuin'd him to do Co. � As, he was more ir.d.- b ed to his PerEdiouf-ju-fs than his Vakur fur the Succef> of his lull Expedition, he was iirn'.Ltle that the Indians might mke him looie the Fruits of it by a vigorous Reiolution J he fivv his Troops already ledeced to 40,000 Men, growing weaker eve;y Day by .the diffolute Life they led; bt fides which, he Has apprehenfi\e that a too long AbRnce from Perfia might occafion new Troubles in that Coantiy.   The Neceffity of returniig thither fpe d;!y indue'd him to make forc'J Marches, which wtxe more painful to ;he T.-ccps becaufe they w*re incuinber'd \\ith the immenfe Booty they had made in the Mogul's Countiy.   Kouli Kan arrived ia the Beginning of November lad on the Banks of the River .Indus Where he refolv'd to reft his Army cvenvhelm'd with Fatigue.   The Amrahs, or Grandees of tie Mogul's Empire, being inform'd of the Condition the Perfians were in, had already aiTernbfed and arro'd above 60,000 of their Vaffais, who were �, joia'd by fome regular Troops.   Kouli Kan was preparing to pais the Indus, when the Indians fell upon his I roops and pat them in Diforder;  nevenhelefs, they Hood their Ground by the Help of the prodigious Quantity of J Baggage that cover\�*Jiem, and '�]. nsintainMablc^jr Fight till.Ntght; but the Indians . carried off thej-j-eateft Part jof'.the Perfians, Booty. ""The fatter, whofe principal Clare was to prevent the \ ludiani front.catting of their Paijage over the River, .i^f^d it.with precipitation andencamg'd on.the other Side, frain whence they continued their Retreat with v; aiTpoi�b!e Diligence.   Since that time, Kouli Kah . fieds-htajfelf-m a-terrib'e Embarafs. for die has loft his ieri TVpopt .in the Indian Expedition, and has hot , very few Resources It ft for railing,anorhar Aimy . The Aghaens whom henever could force to acknowledge him, have affemblecj to the Number of 60.000 .  with an Intent to attack him.   The People of Csn-dahar, whom hefubduedby Force of Arms, are taking Advantage of tJiat Oppo'tunity to ihnke eft the Yoke.   Thf. left of i'he Malecon tents in Perfu tegin likewife to reftir themfelves. Kouli Kan's eldeJt Son, who was left Regent in Pnfia durirg his Father's Abfcnce, has icceiv'd a Courier from him with Advice of the Situation he is in, and Orders to fend him forthwith a Reinforcement : But the Son far f.om being able to fend him any, ha?, on the contrary, aflembied all tha Troops under his Command, in order to employ them in his owiv Defence.  We are indin'd to fulpend our Belief ,   as to Sc'hach Nadir's Misfortunes for thefe Reafons : Brcaufe the News comes from Turky; and becaufe it is puhlifh'd iri the Utrecht Gazette, the Author of which we fufpeS of leaning to France, and, corrfe-. quaatly, may be no Enemy to the Porte, nor a Friend to the Perfian Mtnarch. GE They .have rcctiveJ Lettes at Smyrna from Bengal, ky. the way of Gomrom, which Advife that the Indians enme again to Goa in March laft. with an Ar-Riy of 50,000 Men and a great Train of Artillery ; . the Portugueze were no way prepared for fuch a Vifito the Ganifon- being extrearaly weaken'd, and j�o Succours arriving fiom Europe. The Indians pulh'd on the Siege io bri.-kly that the Merchants ap-:, prchendedthc To�m would be carried by Storm, and plunde'd by the Enemy ; wherefore they entreated the Viceroy, to compound the Matter with the Indians, and offer them a large Sum of Money in confi-aerate* 1 fa I ruce, and that they mould retire. The Propolis-being nade to Adgi-Bouloujouck, Commandant cf tne Indians he taxed the Par'ugueze in the Sum of 8oc,ooo Crufadoes ; but at laii he agreed to take 300,000 granted them fuch a Truce as they ^sfired, and then march'd away with his Army. The,fame Advice* lay, that c� of four Datch Ships fent to cruize upon the Pyrate Anuria, two have been lolt at Sea. G E Petersburg, May 24.
