That ' his Britannick Majefty upon appointing him to command *. them, had expre&y charged him to avoid every Thing * that might in the leaft injure the Dignity of the Head of * the Empire. That therefore his Imperial Majefty might * allure himfelf, that the March of thefe Troops would be * directed in fuch manner, as not to diftnrb the Re�d*uceof � UxJmneriaL Majefty ax FtwefartS Th� Earl of Stait *3ded to this Declaration his profound. Refpect and Veneration for the Perfon of the Emperor. Franc/ort, April 18. The Emperor, accompanied by the Prince Royal and a numerous Retinue, fet out from hence Yefterday Morning for his hereditary Bonwwms. This Monarch declar'd bsfore his Departure, that the prefent Situation of his Affairs oblig'd him to take that Journey, but that he hop'd to return foon. Neverthelefs it is affur'd, that the Emprefs, with the greateft part of the Court, will follow him in 2/ feW Days, as the Spanifh Em-baflador has already done. The Pope's Nuncio, together with the Minifters from Pruffia, Saxony, and Hejfe-Cajfel, are preparing to do the fame. It's imppffible to exprefs how much the Inhabitants of this City regret the Departure of his Imperial Majefty. They had feen him in Quality of Elector, and afterwards Emperor, without perceiving that the fupreme Dignity ef being Head of the Empire, had in the leaft taken from his affable and gracious Behaviour, from that eafy Accefs and Goodnefs wun which he receives and hears every Body. It was but the Evening before his Departure, that he declar'd it was fix'd for the next Day, when he caus'd it to be affur'd to the Ma-giftrates, ' that he departed perfectly fenfible of the Zeal ' which they had fhewn for him : That the City of Franc-' fort fhould always have a diftinguifh'd Share in his Efteem 4 and Affection; and that he would on all Occafions give ' it Marks of his Protection and Benevolence.' The Minifter of the Bifhop of Sattzburg has made Complaints to the Diet of the Behaviour of the Heffian Troops in that Bifhoprick, and particularly, that general Clement kad ordeeed ail the Burghers aud Inhabitants to bring their, Arms to the Heflian General's Quarters, which Order had been complied with by certain Diftricts; to avoid military Execution, with which they were threaten'd. The Court of Heffe alledgcs that its Generals were obliged to have Re-courfe to this Extremity, by difcovering a Correfpondence between the Saltzburgers and the Aufttians, and by perceiving how inclinable they were to favour that Party on all ' Occafions. Dujfeldorp, April 16. The Eayl of Stair has wrote to the Regency of this Dutchy, a Letter in the moft polite Stile. He therein acquaints.the Government of his approaching Departure, in order to join the Troops which have paffed the Rhine. He complains that the Inhabitants of the Country of Juliers have look'd upon, and even treated him on n�ny Occafions as an Enemy, altho* he had declared that he came, there as their Friend, and had given the ftriaeft Orders to hisTroops to pay for whatever they had. He con-dudes, by laying, that he doubted not but that the Government was convinced of his. good Conduct in tfeifr-refpect, and would acknowledge it, &c. Almoft all the Englifh and other Troops have actually Faffed the Rhine, and the reft follow them as faft as ptofii-We. It is reported, that the French are making Prepara- tions to" lay Siege to fome imjJortanfc Place on the other Side of the Rhine. The lift Letters from Alfati bring, that feverdl French Regimehts, both Horfe andFoot; had paffed the Rhine, and marched towards Heilbron, in order to fecure that Camp. The Preparations carrying on by the French towards the Mofelles make it believed that they are determined on fgme important Siqge. From the F'aris A-la-main, April 19.
