According to our laft Advices from Petersburg, two Officers of that Garrifon were feized, and carry'd under a Guard of Dragoons to Mofcow. One of them was formerly Adjutant-General to the unfortunate Prince Iwan Dolgorouki in Germany ; fo that it looks as if a Refolu-tion were taken to humble all the Friends and Dependents of that Great Family. Some Days ago, the Regiment of Foot of Nerva, and z others quarter'd near Dorpt, broke up for Riga, in all probability to reinforce the Radian Troops already in Courland, where they will foon be able to form an Army of 90,000 Men. Brujfels, Aug, 7. N. S. They write from Ghent, that a Woman who lived at Loven-degem, a League from that City, had mur-der'd her 3 Children, the Eldeft of which was about 7 Years old.
