   Daily Advertiser (Newspaper) - March 10, 1943, London, Middlesex                                f; THURSDAJ,   March id, 1743. Xtea/, March 8. . AST Night fafl'd his Majefty's Sloop the SaltaQi, for theWeftward. Remain in the Downs, his Majefty's Ship the Leopard, Terrible Bomb, "and Charles Tender. Wind N. E. An ExtraS of a Letter from-a Mi-nifier of State at Paris, dated �   March 8. < The Conduft of the Auftrian Mihiftry, in relation to � the Manifefto which they have canfed to be pubiifti'd in � the foreign News-Papers, affords Matter of great Diver- < fien here. They would have done much better to have � at once preferited it to the States General, than to have � fought in vain'to "have fpread Terror all over Germany, i in letting the Electors know, that for the future they � fhould not have the Trouble of affembling, in order to ' proceed to the Ele&jon of an Emperor, nor have any � Share m the Difpo/rtion of the Imperial Crown, for * that the Queen intended to caufe that Dignity to be ' again veiled entirely in her Houfe; which evidently � appear'd by her requiring that the Grand Duke oiTufcany, ' her Hufband, mould be declar'd King of the Romans, even � at the Hazard of feeing her own Territories deftroy'd -by � Fire and Sword. This imprudent Conduct has had fo '. contrary an EffecT: to what was expedled at the Court of � Vienna, that no Body was furpriz'd when the Auftrian ' Miniffer at the Hague received Orders to defer pre-' fencing his Manifelto. It appears from what has ' been faid, that if the Court of Vienrfa had not per-' ceived that the bare publifning this Manifefto had ' like to have brought all Germany upon its Back, it < would have made no Scruple to have fent that Piece into * all the German Courts.   Several foreign Minifters at the * Court of London, and particularly thofe of Germany, ex-�* claimed very much againft a Demand fo contrary to the � Conftitution of the Empire, and expreffed themfelves ' with fo much Warmth upon this fubjeft, that his Britan-' nkk Majefty did not think proper openly to countenance * a Manifefto of- this Nature; whereupon the Queen of ' Hungary feemed immediately to change her Tone,   It * was hoped here, that the Proportions of the Emperor * would have met with a favourable Reception at Vienna, * and opened a Door to a Negotiation ^ butyer/'fkr frogfcjj* ' that, as appears by the lafl Difpatches received figfljPp' * that Court, which difcover a more than ordinary Con-' fidence repofed by the Queen in the Britiih Miniftry, and entire Deference to the Sentiments' of *his Britannick an  Majefty, upon the feveral Offers made her by the Powers ' in War, without whofe Confent and Concurrence fhe will * conclude upon nothing.' L     O     N     D     ON, The RigHt Hon. the Lords of the Admiralty have appointed Capt.
