VmL, Apyjl 16 HE James Galley, Pickett;, for Guiney, and the Dutch Ship for India, arc fail'dl No Ship in the Downs.   Wind N. E. Since Our laft arriv'd a Mail from Fla.d/rs. Letters from Drelden mention bloody Engagement near Egra ; but near equrJ give no oFher Account on both Sides taan that the Lofs was �..�.. - - They write from Franc'fort, that tne French Troops are polling themfelves upon tiie Frontiers, in order to oppofe the Auxiliaries, Ihould they attempt to enter Bivana. From another Quarter we are told, that 30000 Pruffians are to join the Allies, and that the Artillery was already embark'd at. Wezel.  -        ' Particluar Advices from Italy aflure, that the Army ot Count Traun confifts of 30000 Men j that of the King of Sardinia of 50000 j and that Coant Gage's Army* including the Reinforcements he has receiv'd, amounts to 180C0 Men only. An Extraa of a Letter from a foreign Minifter at theH* cue, dated April 19. * As in one of my former I gave you a Letter from � the King of Sardinia to his Britannick Majefty, foon after * the Retreat of the former oat of Savoy, it's neceflhry to ' relate certain Circumftances which were confequential � thereto.

How ftrong fo- ' ever the Terms'of the King of Sardinia's Letter might; � be, it's neverthelefs ppfitively afferted by fome People 'here, that he was very near abandoning the Alliance ' after the Spaniards had taken Chamberry. He, it's fiid, 'receiv'd into his Camp of St. Michael, a Courier from ' his Minifter. at Vienna, which inform'd him that the ' Queen remain'd ftill inflexible in Relation to the Bxecu- * tion of certain private Conditions, whereof tne Englifh ' Minifter at Vienna had made himfeir" Guaranty.   The   � parched his Secretary to Vienna, to reprcfent to Mr. Ro- 1 ' binfon the Danger taat AiPiirs were in at tne Court of ' Twin; upon which this laft immediately repaired to. ' * Count d'LHfeldt, and told him in plain Terms, tiiat if ' fome fpeedy Method w;is not taken of i'ti.'fymg the * Kit.g of Sardinia, the Alliance with him would be of , ' no Efteft. .Tne Count pretended, that for the prefent it ; ' feemed. to be � fufficic-r.t th?.t this Prince had received ' * 200000 Sterling of the 500000 whicii the Britiih Par- * liament had granted the Queen ; and that when the Re- * uniojiof the two Armies had produced the Advantages ' which were promifed from it, her Majefty would be, ready ' fuitably to acknowledge the Service that mould be thereby * render'd. Mr.. Robinfon, muchdiffatisfy'd with this An-' fwer, left the Count to confultthe Queen and the Grand . ' Duke ; aBd foon after he receiv'd a Letter to the follow-' ingPurpofe " Her Majefty, at the Sollicitation, and by " the Advice of his Royal Highnefs the Grand Duke, pro-" mifes faithfully to perform the Stipulations agreed upon " with the King of Sardinia in the Month of May 1741, " on Condition that this Prince will not, under any Pretence *' whatfoever, fail of joining her Army in Lombard? with " 16000 Men."
