Extrail of a private Letter fre& Amfierdam^ dated the \\th of May, N.S, . . * It was exprefsly ftipulated in the Treaty concluded at Fueffcn between the Queen of Hungary and the Elector of Bavaria, that the Auxiliary Troops of his Elettoral Highnefe might return home without being tnolefted in � any Shape wfaatfoever } but this Afticle has rKjflfcerrob-� ferved with refpeft to the French, the Auftrians having � vigoroufly purfued them, and done them all the Mifchrief they could, even after the Treaty was figned. With Regard to the Heffian Troops, the Auftrians have ob-� ferv'd the Treaty rather worfe, thefe Trodps having been llopt by Orders from General Bathiani, who ftill ' detains them in Bavaria, tho' the Treaty in Queftion has has already been ratified, which this General cannot be ' ignorant of. The Court of Hefle-Caflei exclaims bitterly againft this Proceeding, and lojks upon it as a manifeil � Violation of trie Treaty. *--:t' * We hear from Munich, that the Prince of Furflenv � berg, the Prince of Saxe-Hilbourghaufen, and theVeldt- Marftial Count Seckendorff direct in all Civil and Military Affairs* with an almoft abfolute Authority. It is � they that managed the Negotiation of Peace, having � even fet it on Foot before the Auftrians broke into Ba- varia : In ihort, they conducted the whole Affair wirhbut � the Knowledge of the Bavarian Council and Miniftry ; and 'tis pretended that no Body was privy to it but the Elector of Cologne, who prevailed wi:h the Elector, his � Nephew, to acquiefce in every thing that had been done � by the three Negotiators above-mentioned. ' It is out of JDifpute that the Courts of Vienna and � Drefden are perfectly agreed, and that the latter will lend its Troops to the Queen of Hungary, in order to act againft the Pruffians wherever fhe fhall think fit. � There are mighty Projects on the Tapis, to pufli the � King of Pruflia very hard on all Sides: They will not � only attack this Prince in Silefia, but even in the Terri-� tories of Brandenbourg, in order to oblige him to aban- don Silefia, which is to be divided between the Queen of Hungary and the King of Poland ; but if his Pruflian Majefty will fubferibe to this, and make his Peace, they will leave him a little Corner of that Province. To � execute this Project a confiderable Body of Troops will � march through Lufatia, in order to penetrare into the � Lower Silefia ; and they add, that General Bathiani's Army, inftead of marching towards the Rhine, as hath been given out, will Traverfe Franconia, and fall upon � the King of Pruflia's Territories. � But the Blow which the Confederate Army has jult � received before Tournay, may be attended with Confe-� quences that will diforder thofe Projects ; for tho' the Action does not feem to be decifive, by any thing we � can yet learn, and that the Lois the Allies have fuftained � may be eafily repaired, it will neverthelefs make a bad Impreffion on fome Circles of the Empire, who began < already to think of uniting with the Auftrians, in order to drive the French quite out of Germany. Moreover, � it cannot fail of raifing the Courage of the King of Pruf-� lia, and make him lefs inclined to a Peace ; and the � Elector Palatine will not perhaps be very forward toem-� brace a Neutrality, tho' fome Advices fay he has actually � accepted it.' By Letters from Lifljon there is an Account, that the Refolution Privateer belonging to Barnftaple, has carried imo Lifbon two Neutral Ships of great Burthen, whofe Cargoes appear to belong to the French and Spaniards, and therefore will turn out very good Prizes. On Tuefday laft a confiderable Quantity of Iron and Steel, Part of the Cargoe of the La Paix, taken by the Sutherland Privateer, Captain Sutherland, was condemn'd at Doctor's Commons ; but rhe Ship," and Remainder of the Cargoe, being claim'd, the Determination wasdeferr'd to a future Day. Captain Lbofey, in the/?rfc4erick, arrived off Dover, , (poke tfiflipjmmoaore Warren, in his Majfeff^V Sjhip 'the � Saperbe, in Company with die Launcefton,: Capt. Cal-mady ; ahd-thctMermaid,..Capt, cowglals, on the 3tit of March, abouMgo Leagaes to the Eattward of the Capes of Virginia, going from' Antigflft" fsr BotioO, to join the Forces jgpirig^ againft Cape Breton. -- Ca pt. *Loney alfo fpbke with the Canterbury;,, Sunderland, and-Chefler Men of War, the 27th of April, about 120 Leagues to the HVeftwafd; of the Lizard. . Letters from Antigua confirm the Accovflit fotmerly pub-lifhed, that one of our Men of War had drove afhore on ., the Maod of Maninico a large French Ship, which was �j beat to Pieces ; and add, that fhe faid Ship was very rich, and haH on board 500, Barrels of Gunf owder, Oidnance, Stores, and other Neceffaries, the want.of which has very much diftrefs'd the Enemy.--The fame Letters fay, that the Commandeisof two of our M:n of War," (or rather the Senior of them) had imprudently let flip an Opportunity of taking an Iromenfe' Treafue : For being on a Cruize together, they faw a Sail, (which has fince appear'd to be aSpanifh Ship of War, of 70 Guns, one of Admiral Torres's Squadron, with Jury Mafls) and gavfrher chace; but fooa after they faw another Sail, and left the former .to chace the latter, which proved to be one of our own Crui-zers : By thi* Folly, the Spaniard had an Opportunity of getting into a little Bay to the Leeward of Porto-Rico, where there was no pofiibility of getting at him. She had above five Millions of Pieces of Eight on board, as they have been fince credibly informed from Curacoa.-We hear, that the Senior Captain has been fince tried at a Court Martial, and removed, and is coming home a Paf-fenger. , The Zant Packer, Kirby, from Leghorn for Briflol, is re-taken by Commodore O/born's Squadron in the Straits. On Saturday lall the John and Mary, Miller, of Pool, was chafed afttore near Chrift-Church, by a fmall French Privateer, who fir'd nine Shot at her, one of which went thro' his Main-fail.-Soon after fhe took a large Pink-llern'd Sloop.. The fame Morning the Hope, Turner, of Shoreham, was taken near the Needles, by a Cutter Privateer from Boloign, of 8 fmall Carriage Guns, and 50 Men ; but ranfom'dfor. ioo Guineas, and is arrived at Weymouth. -This was the fixth Prize then taken . in a Week by the above Privateer : And the fame Afternoon fbe chafed afhore a Brigantine, laden with Wheat for Ireland; the Crew of which made their efcape in the Boat, but the VeflJelw^j carried off. ' The Elizabeth, Abercrombie, from Dunbar for London ; and the Seafiower, Fergufon, from Hamburgh for Scotland, arc both taken by two French Privateers. Extra ft of a Letter from Mandell in Norway, 10, N.S. 4 Here is now fhtion'd at the Naze two French Priva- teers from Calais; one a Dogger of eight Guns and too Men ; and the other a fmall Sloop of fix Guns and ' 50 Men.*--Two Days ago the Dogger took two Scotch ' Veffels clofe by this Place.* The Enterprize, Wood, from Bofton for Antigua, is teken by the French, and carried into Martinico. Yefterday there was a meeting of the Council, at the breaking up of which feveral ExprefTs were fent away. The Accounts of the Mortality of the Black Cattle in Argyle-fhire in Sco;land, are very melancholly and extraordinary, near 5000 having already died, and it ftill continues amongft them. We have Advice from St. Kitts, that Captain Humphry Conway, Commander of the Scrope in that Trade, died foon after his Arrival at that Ifland, much lamented by all that knew him. We are informed, that Capt. Heller, whofe Ship was taken; and loft going into Bayonne, died fome Days before that Accident happen'd. On Tuefday laft died at Mile-End, Mr. John Gibfon, formerly a confiderable Perfon in Trade. On Monday Night laft as one Mr. Jackfon, a Watch-maker, was paffing thro" Bell-Yard, he was flopt by three Ruffians, two of whom held him, whilit the third robb d him of 12 s. Neiccafle, May 4. We have certain Advice, that a Convoy is brder'd to fail from the Nore the 10th Inftant, to flop in Yarmouth Roads, at Hull, and at Tinmouth, to take the Ships bound for the Baltick under his Care. We hear from Milhim-Caftle in Cumberland, that lately died there William Huddlefton, Efq; the laft Male of that ancient Family, leaving only two Daughters, Coheireffes.
