Daily Advertiser (Newspaper) - April 21, 1943, London, Middlesex THURSDAY, Ap r 1 L ii, 1743. Deal, 4PT'd- l9 � . . � 1AM E" down and remain, Kis Ma-jelly's i?hip the Greyhound ; the Mary, ilead,. and the Juiikia, Bond, both for Maryland; the John and Mary, Jefferyo, for Liibon ; the Reitoration, Aylward, for Virginia , the Ifaac and Elizabeth, Matthevk, for Portfmouch ; the Philip and i�eter, North, for Maryland ; with feveral others, their Names not known. Wind S. W. Yeflerday arriv'd a Mail from F r �\ n c f. From the Paris A-la-main, April 26. ' A Courier lately � arriv'd at F'erfailles, brings Advice, that Marital Broglio * was marching to Schwandorff and Newbourg with 100 � Squadrons and 13 Battalions to attack the Army of Ge-� neral Lobkowitz, whil& Monfieur du Chayla was �t the � fame time marching with a Convoy to iucconr ^'"^ * The Count de Saxe would have had the Cbmmana or * this Convoy, had he arrived at the Army ever fa littU * before it begun its march, but its faid, that if a certain 4 Affair fhouid happen, that General would not come * there at all. � Prince Lobkowitz, who has already affembled 7000 Horfe, feems inclinable to march towards the Upper Da-4 xube, to favour the Arrival of the Auilrian- auxiliary * Troops in Bavaria, which occafions extraordinary Mea- * fures to be enter'd into to oppofe that March. * We hear that the Prince de Dombes paffed the Rhine 4 on the 19th, with 18 Battalions and 24 Squadrons. The * Sieur Defportes, Painter in ordinary to ttie Kicg, died * on the zcth, in the S4Jth Year of 'ins Age.' . NotwithJhinding the Gafconades of the Writer of the faris A-la-main, we are positively informed by Letters from Nuremberg, that the French Army in the Upper Palatinate ire info miferable a Conditio:1., as not to be able with-toy Profpeft of Succeis to make Head againft thofe of Prince Lobkowitz and General Feftititz, wftich are capable of joining whenever-Occafion mall require. The Conduct or the French Generals feems to prove this, who -open the Campaign by fkulking behind deep Entrenchments, wliich jio body can imagine promifes very great Atcnievements. ' An�xtracl of a Letter from the H.\ cue, dated April 24. ' Some 6i the Queen of Hungary's Partizans nave juil ' nqw very feverely attacked M. Van Hoey, cne AmbaffiUor * of the Republick at the-Court of France, vwhich they have done by printing h:s Letters and Negoaiations in a ' pretended Hiftory of tae Life of Cardinal Fieury. There ' are twenty-fix Letters with' Inflructions and Memorials, whichrCOntain much Rancour and-Id-Will 10 tncf 'rxends * of the Houfe of Aiiflria; and- which have from time to ' time drawn upon nim Reprimands and vigorous Rtfolu-' tions on the Part of their. High Migntinefles. The ' Treatife is art Oclavo of f68 Pages. r. * This Ambaflador, enraged at not having been able to * fucceed in diverting their High Mightineifes, and parti- * culariy his; own Province, from fulfilling their Engage-' ments with the Houfe Of Aujlria, has fince fliewed an * Inclination to terrify their High Mightineifes, by laying ' a frightful Picture of the Power Of France before tnem. * This Crown, fays lie, m one of his Letters to the States � General, has actually 400000 of the fineft and bell * Troops in Europe on Foot. (It's very 'well known, that 4 fcarce a Jingle Regiment, except thofe of the Haufhold, art * complete.) There are about eighteen Millions of Inha-4 bitants in this Kingdom, and thirteen hundred Millions * of Livres in Specie. The ift Article appears by the * Rolls, which thelntendantsare oblig'dfrom time to time * to fend to Paris, and the 2d by the Mint Records of ' Moneys coined at and fince the Recoinage in 1724, for * as the Value of Money is higher within the Kingdom * than out of it, but very little of it goes away. (Here the. * Ambajfador feems wilfully te�have neglecled mmking a Cal- * culdtion of the Sums fince that Time fent into Poland, * Sweden, Italy, Spain, 'Germany, &c.J He afterwards * goes on to fay, that he had been well inform'd, that * without any new Tax, the Crown could, whenever it '. PJeas'd.> ratfe three hundred Millions, by felling certain * Domains, which are at prefent farmed out and bring in but little. He concludes with  faying, they who have a * Mind to contend with fuch a Power, ought .in the firft ' Place very maturely to weigh thefe Conhderations, and * remember, that if they prove unfuccjjfsfuJ, they muft be * ruin'd.' L O N D O N. , The Right Hon. the Earl of Pembroke has refign'd his Regiment of Horfe, as being in an ill State of Health. " General Horteywood fuccecds him. Col.
