Arrived the Granada Bomb from a Cruize, and the dement from Briftol. Juft arriv'd the Greyhound M.*n of War from a Cruize. Wind S. S. E. An Ext rail of a Letter from the Ha cv e, dated Jane 18. * A certain foreign Minifter here received Advice from Munich before the Emperor Jefc that City, that a Letter' had been wrote to the Imperial Miniilry by Mr. AmeJo:, Secretary of State at the Court, of France, which wv.s very fatisfaftory to the Emperor, the Subfta.^ce whereof is as follows. Mr. Amelot, - after having give-; the ftrongefl Affurances-of the fmcere-Friendfiiip ot his moil Chriftian Majdly for the Emperor, and of his firm Rc-folution to employ all his Forces to defend the Houfe of Ban/aria, "and not to lay down his Arnj.s till jr's Imperial Majefty had received all ihz Satislattica wnicir RC" has judiciouily room to hope for, reprefents tiwtthe King never fent any private Orders to Marfhal Broglio, or to any other of his Generals in Bavaria, to keep th^ir Corps feparate, nor to avoid Dangers 11 order.to throw them upon the Imperial Troops, as has betn rn.ilicioufly iniinuated. That it was very true, thru tlie Court had always exclaimed againil its Generals Method of carrying on the War, by dividing the Army into fmall Bodie9, and too much expoling their advanced Pofts, and that it was in order to remedy thefe Evils, that it had lately direded Marlhal Broglio to affcmble his-Troops in fuch manner, as that in Cafe of a Surprife, one Body might fuccour another. That the Import of thefe laft OrdeT3 was to avoid little Hoftilitiesr to feek or wait for a general A&ion, and to" hazard nothing till the French Generals had thoroughly concerted with thefe of his Imperial Majefiy. * That as to Marfhal Belleiile Plan of Operations, as advantagious as in EffeS it might poflibly have proved, it was now by no means pradlrcable, confidering that the Campain was advanced, and the Enemy had taken divers Pofts, where it was no longer poffible to raife the Works pointed out by that Plan, and that befides, all the Circumftances of Affairs were entirely changed ; That if his moft Chriftian Majefty oppofed the Execution of this Plan in the Beginning of the Campain, it was jiot only becaufe of the immerife Sums that muft have been expended in exhaulting fome Rivers, turning the Courfe of others, raiilhg Redouts, Forts, and other Works; but likewife that the Troops employed in thefe Works would in Part have died, and the relt would have been rendered incapable of Service by undergoing fuch great and perhaps ufelefs Fatigues : That M^rihalBellifle had been more exact in marking out the Ground in his Plan, than in calculating the Millions that it would have coil, and the People that muft have been deftroyed in putting this vail Scheme in Execution : That his Imperial Majefty might the better judge of the Truth of what is here ford,-by the Remarks which the Court had fent him in relation to this Enterprize j and might be thoroughly perfu�ded> that if the King^refufed to give the Command of his Troops in Bavaria to Marfhal Bellcifle, it was becaufe he had not forgotten the vaft Expences this General had occafioned laft Campain, befides the large Contributions which he had raifed in Bohemia and Auftria : That in refpeft to a'Reinforcement, it had not till then be.en poffible to fend it into Bavaria, as the Army upon the Rhine was not aiTembled: But that now not only a Body of 15000 Men ihould be detached into Bavaria, but another of 20000 as foon as Marihal Noailles fhould have received all the Troops which are defigned him; that therefore the Emperor might entirely depend upon the powerful Succours of France, and had no Occafion to be uneafy at the Difpofitions of the Rcpublick of ths United Provinces, Hor need concern himfelf about the Party it ihould take, feeing the King had taken his Refolution thereupon, and that France was as-well prepared, asflie was determined to ftand the Event of Things, whatever it might prove to be.' L O N D O N. There are Letters in Town advifing, that the Earl of Stair having Information that Marfhal Noailles was in Motion, in order to take PoffeSion of Afchaffenburg, a ftrong City belonging to the Eleftor of Metitz, his Excellency immediately detach'd General Clayton with iooco Men to takePofleffion of the fame, which he bad the good Fortune to accomplifh. The fecuring of this Place is of n3 fmall Importance, there being a fine Stone Bridge over the Main. The Flying Mercury, Capt. Pahl, from Hamburgh, ard the Catherine, Capt. Pollard, from Leghorn, are arriv'd .in the River ; and the Charming Betty, Capt. Swain, from North Carolina, and the Charles, Capt. Teague, from Virginia, are arriv'd at Dover.
