The French pretend, that this Corps con-filts ef 15,000 Men, but by ocher Accounts they do not amount to more than 9000. It confidently reported, that Affairs go extremely well at the Court of Peter/burgh ; and that the Title of Em prei's kteiy given by France, is look'd at in its proper Light, as being given to ferve a Purpofeat this Juncture. On Saturday came Advice, that the James Frigat, Gow-land, bound from Gibraltar to London, was loft at Gibraltar.

From the London-Gazette. Hague, April 27, N.S. The News of ihe Viftory gained by the Aultrians over the French and Palatins near Pfaffenhoven on the 15th In dan t is confirmed from feveral Quarters. As yet indeed no particular nor minute Relation of that Advantage has reached this Place; but to judge by the Enemy's Lofs of all their Artillery and Baggage, M. deSegur the French General's being made Prifo-ner, M. de Rupelmonde killed, and M. Zaftrow, the Pa-latin General, wounded, it muii have been a very bloody and decifive A&ion.   A Courier juft arrived from Bonn, has brought us the important News, of the Conclufion of the Accommodation between the Queen of Hungary and the Elector of Bavaria ; but the Conditions of this Accommodation are yet unknown here. There is a-flying Report of the Auftrians having come up with and entirely routed the Remamtof the French and Palatin Corps On the i6ch or 17th, in the Neighbourhood of Donawert. f      IRELAND.

They wri:e from Lisburn, that all Kinds of Prov'rfions are fold there at the higheft Prices ; the Cattle dying for Want of Fodder, nothing but a melancholly Profpect be-fore us : The Spring and Labour are very backward, which makes every thing worfe. Mr. O'Neil, of Shanes Caftle, ordered his Steward to distribute (amongft the pooreft of his Tenants} 40 Tons of Hay, as a molt feafonable Help to fupport their weak Cattle : An Example wcrthy of Imitation ; but few have it in their Power to do the like, Hay being prodigioufly fcarce in this Country.
