The King of Pruffia has fent 'too Grenadiersajd 500 Dragoons into the County "JorD, iu|ikr Jbc Comtoand of Major G eneral Baron de Borck. Thofe Troops have taken fome Artillery j which any other but a Prince of the King's Modera-aione with them, and a large Quantitv 0f Ammuni- ; tion would have made him repent of tion. j In thefe CircumfUnces it pitted the Almighty, j who in his infinite Wifdom direcb ail tne Events in � this World, to put a Period to his Majefty's Life and call hiii to himfclf, after an ever glorious rable Reign. md merno- G E They write frcm Liege, that many of the Inhabi nnts of Herfbl have fled into that City with their bril Effects, upon Advice that the Pruflian Troops have enter'd the County of Horn. G � j The Oath of Allegiance which the King required cf The following Piece has been publifhed here, and I the People cf Herfkl, at his Aceeilion to the Thrcne, is entitled, An Accoont of the Reaions which have in- : u~ *- f-'-~ -��->-"- duced his Majefty the King af Pruffia to make Reprisals upon the Prince and B'fhop oi Liege. His Majefty the King of P.ulTu h;:virg been provoked fo the lail Degree, by the unfair Prcceedints cf the Prince and Bifhcp of Liege, finds him'elf forced, againll his Will, to have recourfe to A'ms in ' rii to reprefs the Violence and Affront offcr'd to him by the Bifhnp. This Relolution has coll him a great deal, being averie, as well by Principle as by his naturil Dilpoh-tion, to every thing that looks like Rigour and btvs-ity But finding himfelf forced by the Pr nee of Liege to alter his Conduct, he could not take any otner Resolution than to maintain the Juftice of his Right, and evenge the unworthy Ufage his Minifter- de Creytzen rectiv'd, 2s well as the fcornful Silence of the Prince of Liege to the King's Letter. As too much Rigour borders upon C:u-lty, fo too much Moderation refembles Weakncis: therefore, tho' the King would willingly have made a Sacrifice cf his Intereli for the Sake of the publick Tranquility, yet he could not do fo with regard to his Honour ; nd this is trie principal Motive that determin'd him to take a Reiolution fo contrary to his Sentiments. All f.ir Means have been try'd in vain to come to :n amicable Accommodation. On the contrary, we have found that the King's Moderation encreafed the j Arrogance of the Prince ; that his Majefty'a Mildneis ; afforded Refources t-> his Haughtinefs; and, in fhort, inftead of gaining any thing by thefe Means we became infenfibly an Objeft of Vexation and Con- , tempt. . ; There bsing no other Way to obtain Juftice but was deny'd him, in fpite of all the Remonflranccs made to ihem on that Occaficn, ar.d notwithflancing the Pardon offcr'd to the Au.-hors of the Rebellion. The Prince of Liege, liill pLff'd up w:th his ufurp-injr P'-oj Ct, �.up;x)rcd the Rebel-, and nurfed up their C' il ..cy with ib much Addtets tha: fair Word; and * races were equally emplc 'a in vain to bring them �.:> their Duty. j The Kint� not caring to do any th-inj rafnly, and having nothing fo much at l:ea:t as to cultivate ths 1 Friendllup of his Neighbours, teropc:;2�l until his j Arriv-ji at We2el, from whence his Majefty fent j Coonhllor Rsmbcnet.wi.h a Cernrniiiion to demand a ' Cthego-ical Anfwer of the P'i.- o: I.icge, w'e-! th.r e perfifled in afLming thf i*cvrre;gni[y of tiiB !

So that his Majeit ' n the Part of that Prince, the King will net be inflexible ; fati.fy'd with fhewjng him ti^t be is abie to punifh, and toe gcrerous to rum him. At Wezei the 1 r.h of September. To this Piece the following Memorial is tagg'd. The Subjects of the Loic^hip of Herifri h.-.vmg rebel I'd againft the King in the Year 1733, put them-felves under the Protefftjon of the Prince of Liege, who granted it without hemating. That Prince had arrogated to hinifelf the Right of Sovereignty uver the Lordfhip of Herffal, which had ever been difpated with him by the Princes of Orange, firft PoiTeiTors ol that Lordfhip. Tho' the late Kir.g had frequently try'd fair Means to bring back the Rebels of Herflal to their Duty, he never could fucceed in it, fuch Care did the Prince of Liege take to alienate their Minds by his fecret Practices among!! them'. The King, who had no other Views but to keep even with his Neighbours, and make them feel the Effects of his Moderation, offer'd to fell the Lordfhip of HerftaJ to the Prince of Liege for ioo.ooa Pa*a �coons l a very fmafl Sum for fuch a Lordfhip us Her-ftal, /ituatcd .along, the Meufe in a rich �nd fertile Country : But as He'rtlal is in a manner at the very Gates of Liege, and detach'd fiom his Majeily's Dominions, the King thought proper by this Sals to put a Stop to a great deal of Chi?a�e and Diiputes, which cooid nst but diveit him fjom more iropomm Affairs, afid turn out at laft to the Difadvantage of the Prince of Liege. The Gfbr of the Sale met w;:h lo many Objfflions from that Prince, that the Negotia ti n mifcarry'd in fpight of all Endeavours to fUike up a Birgain. Not contented wih difobliging the King fa'many times, the'Prince of Liege made it his particular Bufi-neis to affront Col. Cey^zen, whom Ins MajcAy knt to him with the Charader of Minilter charg'd with his Affairs. This Gentleman had his Effects llopt, and was treated with Contempt; and the TJifhop, in the Heat of his P^flion, made ufj of fome Expufiions, to all the Ports in flu's Kingdom. We learn, that � the Squadron which ftmed from Ferrol near a Month. � fince, is gone to the Weft Indies upon a very itnpprt-; ant Einc; prize.

It mnli hav� appeared fome-thing odd, that while we were threataed in Spain with a Vifit from theEngtifh Fleet, that of the King fhould all on a fudden quit the Coaib of this Kingdom. But indeed wedo not want the Affiflance of that Fleer, for there is not a place on the Side of the Ocean bot what is in a good State of Defence; fo that there is no room to apprehend a Defcent in any; of thofe Ports. We flatter ourfelves ro have penetrated the real De-fign of the Englifh, which was to bura the Ferrol Squadron, and therefore the Court thoL^.v. it better to fend it oat than to let it lie ufeleis n tne Harbour.
