Wind North-Eafh -.. y An ExtracT of a Letter froi%)tbe Hague, dated June 25-' The DHpatches which the Marquis de Fenelon has lately received from Vcrfailles, principally relate to the Demand which the Emperor made at that Court before his Departure from Munich, and to thf Deftina-tion of the 20000 Men voted, for the: Service ta'-'/fic Queen of Hungary. This Arribafiadrir has had three Conferences upon the Contents of thefe Difpatches, where n he expreffed himfelf to the following Purpofe: As a bid Interpretation may poffibly be put upon the Refolution which the Emperor took to abandon Munich, and iiis Bavarian Teiritories, in order to je.tire' to. Auf-hourv, his moil Chriftian Majefty has order1 d me-, to inform the States General with the real Motives which determined that Prince to make this Retreat. The Emperor had all along- flatter'd himfelf tharTtheir High Mightineffes would employ their-good Oflkes in order to engage her Majefty of Hungary to confent to an Ac-commE'dation, which mould in fome Degree be equita-b-2 ; divers Propefitions have been made to the' Queen, and all the Methods that have- been thought the-juftefi and moft efficacious, have been put in, Pra&ice, and even referred to the Tribunal^ the Republick, and fubmitted to theDetermination of theirHigh Mightineffes; bat thefe Proceedings have produced nothing in favour of the Parties in War, nor any thing that tended towards Teftoring the Tranquility of Europe, which is in great Danger of being involved in the prefeht War, and;to be fhortiy all in Aims. His raoft CnrifUan Majeity has,not been difcouraged with the Delays which time after time have been made apparently in order to fee what Succefs the Arms of the Queen of Hungary would have, before ferioufly giving Ear to an Accommodation. On the contrary, my Court has formed the frefh Plan for bringing it about, which I have juft had the Honour of pre-fenting to be examined by their High Mightineffes. Mr. Buffi has-done the like at the Britilh Court, but all Endeavours :iiavte\ proved'ineffectual, every Body tacitly refufing to agree to a Sufpenfion of Arms for a Time ftipulated.: They ftill perfiit in carrying on the War againft thofe who demand Peace. They feem determined to lay Germany wafte, and to make Conquefts. The Emperor therefore, for the Sake of his Subjects, confents to it. He ti.is quitted his. Dominions to preferye their Lives and Effects. It is likewife by the Direction of his rrroil Chriftian Majefty, that the French Troops are evacuating as faft as poffible the Polls in Bavaria, in order to pre-ferve them from Flames, and that thefe Troops may affemble fo as to be ready to defend, in cafe of an Attack, the Frontiers of France. Tlieir High Mightineffes, from what has been faid, will have but little reefon to doubt how fincerely the Emperor and his molt Chriftian Majefty are inclined .to Peace. It is therefore very eafy for them to determine upon the Party they will take, and die ufe they wilim^kc of the 20000 Men follicited by the Qucen,.of Hungary. As his moft Chriftian Majefty is willirig fdfprevent the Republick, by the delire he has of keeping in Friendfhip witn their High A'liglitincffes, fo he concludes that t:�cy will 0:1 their fide c.rLfuily avoid fcrtuing. their Troops into Germany, there to- declare War againft thofe of France, or to make any Motions in die Low Countries, in order to dufe a Diversion.there.
