   Daily Post (Newspaper) - October 3, 1744, London, Middlesex                                The Daily Poft. Numb. 7827 Wednesday, Oftojber 3, 1744. To the A vth o r of the Daily Po s t. S I R, lllllllll jS I hope every Friend^ to the Houfe of Auftria and the Liberties of Europe has been fa-tisfy'd with the Reafons I offer'd in my * laft, to fhew the Improbability offomeof the Facts fo boldly advanced by the Writer that ftyfes him-felf a True German Patriot. I ihall now venture to take in Hand ttje^ueeo.�f Hungary's Jnfiver to the Declaration read.by Count'Dohna, Ml-, mfter from the King of Pruffia, before his Departure from Vienna. I am very fbrry that this Piece has not been copy'd at full Length in all our publick Papers, as the Prufftan Jtfanifefto was, aad.not a.little cont-ern'd too, that, iri-itead of being an Anfwer to Count Dohna%Declara-don, it is not a full Confutation of ^ryPara^^ in the faid Manifefto; But this we may Mf&j^aiks^B^ the firft Thing-the Court of Vienna had to do� belkg to anfwer fuch. Charges againft it as were read by the Pruf-Jian Minifter. Seeing your Paper is too much taken up with other [Matters, to indulge me in the Defign I had to take No-lice of every, material Point in the Court of Vienna's Anfwer, I muft confine myfelf to one Article, which fets in the cleareft Light the Moderation, rbe Drjinterefled-fiefs, the Patriotifm of. the Auftrian Minifters, and invincibly proves the rponfhons Ingratitude, the horrid. Degeneracy of theGermanick Body in general. ' In the Circular .Refcripr (fays the Anfcuerer) of the ' 18th of jaft Month (July) the Objection concerning ' the Electoral Bavarian Troops has been before anfwer?d' in a Manner no lefs convincing. The Agreement made at Lower Schonfelden ; our two Letters to the Committee of the Circular Dyet of Swabia \ the Warning and Requefts,therein contain'd > and laftly, our having' ib long fpared thofe Troops, which were entirely difpers'd, are undeniable Proofs of our moit fincere and icconcileable Temper.   But fince the (aid Crown of France, and have been found upon the Territory ufurtfd by that Crown, to the Prejudice of the Em- * phre, which Territory they actually ende.ivcur'd to de-' fend against the Empire rTself, in Conjunc-' tion with the French Forces, and as Auxiliaries to * that Crown ; it'is really incomprehenfible, what is 4 meant .by the Addition which Count Dohna was after-4 wards obiig'd to make to the Declaration, &c. 4 At prefent the Empire is-no longer the Theatre of * War It cannot be pretended, even with the leaft 4 Colour, that the Queen's Endeavours to reconquer for 4 that B;dy Countries that were torn from it, are con-4 trary to its Dignity, Conftituribn, Security and Tran-4 quality^ Now, whereas the Queen has fo often de-' clared, and at'prefent repeats that Declaration in the ' moft folemn Manner, that fhe defires. not to aggrandize 4 herfdf, butvonlyan equitable Indemnification and Security 4 for the. future,i her Majefty's forefaid Endeavours 4 might in the mean time have tended to advance the ' wiib'd for Reconciliation with her Adverfary, and 4 undoubtedly may do fo ftill, if, contrary to Expecta-4 tion they are not interrupted by the Execution of fo ' menacing a Declaration,' i.'e. that made by Count Dohna. Then the Queen {hews how fhe went about to effect tiiis, which was propofing to the Emperor to unite with her againft France, and fo co-operate in promoting 'heir mutual Intereft: But, irfeems, nothing could be agreed to at Francrort,-4 but what would have depriv'd the Houie of -Auftria even of its Indemnification, and only, in & frnaH Degree, encreafed its future Security, ' together with the internal Tranquility of the Empire.' W hat could be more generous than this Way 6f Proceeding 1 After the Auftrian Dominions had been ra-vag'd by French Armies call'd into Germany by the Houfe of Bavaria, her,Hungarian Majefty defir'd nothing more than an Indemnification for what was paft, and iufficient Security againft the Jike Invafions for the future , to attain which, (he only wanted the Erfiperc r to renounce his inglorious and fatal Attachment to trance, and fide with her againft that Crown.  But finding her Propofals flighted, and that the Head of the Empire continued fix'd in a Foreign Iniereft, fhe moft ge-~enujhf refolv'd to be a Proteihix and Nurfing-Mother to Germany: 4 There remain'd nothing for the Queen to 1 do (fays the Jrfa'erer),m order to the ftill obtaining a ' Reconciliationlb earneftly defir'd with her Adverfary, 1 but ro endeavour, without his Concurrence, to recover. ' what had been tarn from ihe Empire, and, befidos the 1 forefiiid Recbirciliation, to promote the Dignity, the ' future Secuiity^aitd internal and external Tranquility '-ofthe Empirey-together with the Advantage and Deli- st* fix tbaiyfoB: of the ifi-Infiant. 1 very of many States from theYoke of a foreign Power.' --An bonefl and glorious Undertaking indeed! but not practicable in this wicked and degenerate Age. If the tioufe'of Auftria fhould-totally ruin itfelf by having purfu'd fo laudable a Defign| what an indeliable Stain will be left on the German Nation 1 how will Pofterity ftand amaz'd at their Baefnefs and Ingratitude ! However, as this Anfwer does not give full Satisfaction to a curious and impartial Enquirer, it is to be hoped that the next Piece the Court of Vienna publifhes will effectually .remove any Scruples that may arife on fome fuch Queries or Obfervations as follow, which naturally occur to anyMan that weighs the Arguments on both Sidas in the Scale of Reafon. i. Whether it is not fit the World fhould be inforrn'd, how much the Court of Vienna expected, ox may ftiU'ex-. peft, as a p-oper Indemnification for what is paft *, and what it is fhe thinks a fujficient Security for the Time to come? z. Admitting that the Houfe of Bavaria has no varid Pretenfions to any Part of the Auftrian Succeflion, it cannot be denied that the prefent Emperor was as fairly elected as, perhaps, any" of his Predeceffors have been for thefe 200 Years paft: Confequently the Queen.of Hungary is his Vaffaly and, as fuch, ought not to undertake 10 make Conquefts abroad for tie Empire, without his Approbation orConcurrence. 5. If her Hungarian Majefty had conqu.r'd Alface, would ihe have given it to the Emperor, or held it in Trufl for the Empire, as its Guardian "5 or would fhe have kept it to herlelf, as the Indemnification fo often in-fifled on in all Overtures and Negotiations for an Accommodation with the Houfe of Bavaria ? . 4. Suppofing that the Emperor had abdicated, in.Ccn-fideration of getting his Hereditary Countries again, and that the Duke of Lorrain had canied'the next Election, but that the Houfe of Auftria had ftill been unable to indemnify herfelf at the Expence of France, for the Ceffion of Silefta and the Reftitution of Bavariamight not fome Pretext have been trump'd up for breaking the Treaty of Breilau.? Might not the Court of Vienna plead.Confirajnt for having broke through' the Pragma-tick Sanction in malcing that Ceffion, or elfe maintain that there was aitacit Agreement naade at the fame time to indemnify her for it ? And,, in fuch a Cafe, would England* as Guarantee .of the Treaty of Brefjaji^make T^M'4iaVe^iwn--*m�toy?d- in the Servicer'off th^f AVar'tTp^h^He to"mainiain his Piuf- fian Majefty in his new Acquifition ? View the Difputes on the Continent in what Light you pfeafc, it will be found an Undertaking paft cur Skill and Strength to compofe them: Confequently we have no Bufinefs there, let who will be in the Right or in the Wrong. We ought now, in. good Earneft, to begin (if it is not too late) to think of our own Country, and endeavour to avert the Deftruction that hangs over our Headsand therefore, I mult repeat it once more, bring home the Army from "Flanders. I am, SIR, Yours, &c. P. S. As. to the Negotiations at Hanau for a Peace, (which one might expect I fhould have touch'd upon, while my Hand was m) it is enough to obferve, that it may be gather'd from the Piece under Confideraiion, that the Court of Vienna knew nothing at all of the Matter So that the Publick has a Right to expect Satisfaction on this Head from another Quarter; and there I-let it reft. From the London Gazette. Turin, Sept. 19. WE hear from the Camp at Saluces, that upon the 1 jthlnftant part of theGarrifon of Com faliied out, fet fire to, and deftroy'd fome of the Enemy's Works on one Side of the Town, and kill'dand wounded feveral of their Men. Upon the 15 th the'Enemy began to throw their Bombs into- the Town, but with; very little Execution. There is a Report here* that Yefterday our Army began to defile towards Coni in three Columns. Upon: the 10th a large Body of the Enemy, under the Command of M. de Campo Santo, advanced to Chiuia, in which Place we had 400 regular Troops, and fome Companies of Militia, under the Command of Lieutenant Colonel Alfier, who fkirmifh'd with them for fome Hours 5 but the Enemy making Vfe of their Cannon, Jieretir'd into theCaftle, and the ' Militia to the neighbouring Hills^ Thereupon theix Miquelets enter'd, and fet fire to the Town, which was all reduced to A flies, excepting the Caftle and four or five finall Houfes. From the Gamp before Coni, Sept, z6. We have had, for thirty Hourspaft} a continualRain, which feemslikely to laft, and. our.jrrenchesare now full of Water. t If the' Rain hokls a little longer we fhall, in all Probability, be forced taraife the Siege out of hand, iwlefs it be intended to leave our Artillery behind us, fbrafrnuch as the new Attack, which we had begun fince the 2jd Inftant, on^ifrotheTSicfe of the Gefio, is become impracticable by, the Qyerfiowing of that fmall River \ befities that, ttie Amval of'put Conyoys of Grain and Meal, which we have been expecting Day ttfter Day, from the Time that we enter'dthe Plain, is ftill fiirthef obftructed by this bad Weather. If the Advice of the beft, Engineers, in lelition to the third Attack, had been foilow'd at the Beginning of the Siege, we fhould moft certainly have been at this Time Matters of Com j inftead of which, our Annies muft now return td'take Winter Quarters in France, excepting the Garxjfbp which we"fhall leave at Demont, and in the Poftoflrhe' Valley of Stura for the fake of the Communication.' That- Valley being deftitute of Provifions for Man o* Beaftj our Reireat will not be at all agreeable, and tbt Barbets will iikewife very much incommode us in it. ^refden, Sept. 18. A Perfon juft now arriv'd from the. ^Pjufiiaa Camp* reports, -that their Army kad pwifued theif^MarciP to Tabor, and had been join'd'by 20^)06 Men from Moravia. Prague having fu'rrender'd on the 16th, and 1 j,boo Men, and among them 500 Students, being made Prifoners of War, they were all feht to Gai-len, fix Miles from Prague,, where they were Ibrted, and the beft Men kept. The greateft Damage Prague fuffer'd by the Siege, was the entire Ruin of the Fort before the Gate oi the Gallows, and of rjt Houfes thereabouts. They are now very bufy in repairing thft faid Fort, in which they employ the Huffars and Pan-dours that were taken Prifoners. The Pruffiah Garriib^ of Prague confifts for the prefent but of 5000 Men, who are not fuffer'd to pafs the Night in the Houfes, but lie upon their Beds before the Doors in the open Street,' whilft the Burghers dare not ftir out of their Houfes at Night on Pain of Death, which they are to incur alfby if they are found talking in private together, or fend^ ing Letters from thence. The City has Deen oblig'd to. redeem its Bells at the Expence of 12,000 Dollars; and  the New Town is com pell'd to furnifh daily ioooPio-1 neers, or a certain Sum per Man in their ftead. What the City furrender'd, the Militia and the Jews came to Blows, in which Scuffle thirty of the tatter weie kiU^d, and above forty wounded; and, if the Pruffiansmarch-' ing into the Town had not prevented it, there would have been greater Mifchief done, �Drpfden, Sept. 50. We have receiv'd Advice from BV��' hernia, that the King of Pruffia has made himftlf Mar fter of Tabor: That Poft was anack'd by General fau, bur the fmall Garrifon that was ia it made fbT goodji r^Jgnce, that jthe Priaffiana were-obUg'd-to-^eail tor Artillery ; upon the Arrival of which the Befieged capitulated, and march'd out with all Military Ho* nours.
