The King only waits for the Arrival of 8000 Men from the Lower Po, before he begins the military Operations, and endeavours to drive his Enemies out of Savoy. According to the Spaniards Account, their Army confifts of 36000 Men. Two thpufand Peafants~ are attempting to cut a Way through the Mountain of St. Bernard, in order to penetrate into Lombardy; but its thought that the Rocks and Precipices which ti'iey fo frequently meet with in the Execution of that Enterprize, will render any Precautions to hinder the Succefs of it unneceffary.

It's aftur'd that the Marfhal de Noaiiles.has receiv'd Orders from Court, to take the firft Opportunity to attack the Enemy, and to purfue them. They write from Bavaria, that Sicknefs ftill prevails amongft the Troops there, and that Count Kheyjenhtiller was caufing his Camp near the Ifer to be fortified, which, it's thought, looks as though lie defjgn'd to remain upon the defenfive.

Tho' the Spaniards give out that Don Philip's Army confifts of 35 .or 36000 Men, yet there are Advices from Paris, importing, that the laft Letters from Savoy, dated the 22d of April, advifcy that the Infant Don Philip . had not then above i 3000 Men in his 'Army, great Numbers having been fwept away by Sicknefs, which has greatly prevailc in it, and many having deferted, info-much that the Court is in pain left the King of Sardinia ihould re-enter Savoy, which would probably prove fatal to the Don in his prefent Circumftancesr J*     O     N     DON.
