They write frpih Francfort; inftijeizth Inftanr, N.S. that the Minifters reprefsnting the EleSpral College at the ' Dyet, afferobled the 7th, and had a very remarkable Sef- | fions. The Hanoverian Minilter declared there, * That ' his Britannick Majefty could" not but be exceedingly af- * fected with the Situation of Afiairs in the Empire, eijpe-' cially when he reflected on the true Caufe thereof: That * the Publick Liberty, as well as that of particular States, � now bpprefled by the French, would have .been already � fecurea from their Vexations, if the Princes of the Em-� pire, actuated by the ia/ne. Spirit, and driving at the fame * End, had fhew.n morf.Steadinefs andRefolutionjand � had left the World rqom.to fufpeft from their Conduct, r*: that they partly connived at the Attempts of the Enemy. * That his Britannick Majefty had done all that lay in his � Tower, in order to draw the Empire out of the weak, in- * active Condition, which it kept itfelf in: Th^t the whole-'. fome Exhortations he had given to the.Eleclor of Bava-'� Via, had ,at ]alt opened the Eyes of this Prince to his * true Intereft: That his Accommodation with the Queen of Hungary was the moft lueky Event that could hap- ^-pan: That fhis Event might* bring the Empire near the * Period .of \\& .Djeliver.apce ; if the .Members thereof ,* would �t Jaftjefolye to exert themfelyes, and unite all * their Forces to oblige the French, to abandon Germany -* once forever? The Elector of Bavaria's Minilter declared at the {ame Sitting,� 4 That his Electoral Highnefs *T by }�S. Ac�Pfl>mpc^t.ixmrWjth the Queen pf Hungary, had,acknowledged her in Quality of Queen of Bohemia, * and fo acknowledged like wife the Legality of her Vote '* at the approaching Dyet of Election, and the Right to � fend thither.Erabajiadars to co-operate in the Choice of a * new Head of the Empire.' The Minifter of the King of Pruflia, in Quality of Elector of Brandenbourg, declared, * That when the King his Matter concurred, at the laft .' Dyet of Election, in the Refolution taken to fufpend the ' Vote of Bohemia, he did not do it out of pure Com-.* plaifance, or,for any private Converjiency, but for Con-' fiderations equally folidand invariable in their Principle : � That this Principle (till fubfifted, with all its neceflary r* Confluences; and that the .King his Mailer was (till * .firmly xefoh/ed never to confent to the Queen of Hun-.� gary's being admitted to give her Vote for Bohemia at � the approaching; Dyet �f Election.' The Pruffian Mini-� ^er a^ded, � That as for the Accommodation which the ' Elector of $avaria had concluded with the Queen of � Hungary, it plainly appeared, that it was a Step which * thisTrrace had been forced to take or Account of the fa-� tal Accidents which had happened to him ; bat. that his � Pruflian Majefty could not imagine that this Accommo- * dation would laft long, because he was perfuaded that � the Court oF Vienna had concluded it only In Hopes of 'getting the Imperial Dignity for athie Grand Dnke of * Tufcany, whom they lock upon as the only Candidate *~qualified for it ; and that thefe Hopes qnce coming to be * blafted, there'was but little Appearance, that they would : � at Vienna ltand to. Conditional Engagements, which � could not fail of being then looked on as onerous.' They ,ad*d From Francfort, that upon a Report being fpread of jqme Negotiations fet on Foot for an Accommodation between ihe Queen of Hungary and the King cf Pruflia, her Hungarian Majefty had declared, by her (Minifters at divers fcourts in the Empire, ' That having the good Fortune to * beTuperior in Forces to the King of Pruflia. it would be * a littk odd that ihe ftiopld liften to an Accommodation ' with that Prince, unlefs he mould refolve to reftore her * the greatelt Part of Silefia; and that (he never would ' agree to a Peace but upon this Condition, which ihe * jadged abfolutely neceffary to make the Accommodation ' folid and lafting.' According to Advices from Francfort of the 13th Inft. N.S. -all ;tbe IfrenchV^^ooi?r under the Prince cf Conti; a in a B.pdy,jaod by the D'fpofitions making v were- a. tiby th ? Qeperal it was evident ^hat his Defign is to attack the Duke of-Aremberg's Army : The French hgd actually anmmed their Bridge near'Weiffenau above Mentz. As for General Bathiam's Army, .which is now commanded by the Veldt Marfhal Count Traun, it has begun its March, but ho ft far it had advanced, they can't yet tell : The general Opinion is, that Count Traun deii^ns to pu(h on towards the Rhine, and as the French are intrenching them-felves on the Neckar, and ;expect Reinforcements every Day, it's thcaight we may foonJiave the News of a'Battle from that Quarter. ExtraSl of a y. �nd .that,the Army was.to march the 6ch towards the Frontiers. They add, that the Saxon Troops were, in'Motion, tofecond them in their Operations againft the Pruffians.    , From po.nawerth we hear, that the Vel-Jt-Marlhal Count Traun.arrived, there the 6th Inih N.S. and that General Bathiani, after delivering up to him to command of the Army, fet 6ut for Vienna, in order to receive lnftruc-tions about the Campaign lie is to make in Italy. They write from Neuwied, that the Duke .of Aremberg has made a Motion forwards with his Army, in order to , occupy again Embs, and fome other Pefts on the Right Side of the Lahrie. Letters from Silefia adyife, that the Pruflian Army was in Motion, drawing nearer the Frontiers; and that Colonel Winterfidd had defeated in the Mountains of Hirfchberg the Corps of the Hungarian Partifan Patetifch, of which 150 Men were killed on the Spot, and a Captain, 14 Subaltern Officers, with 118 Private Men taken Prifoners: the reft fled into the Woods, where moil of them were cut off by the Peafants, or brought Prifoners to the Pruflian Camp Letter from the Camp before Tournay, dated the \2th 1/tf. N.S. and received at Utraht the 1 6th. * Yefterday Morning at Break of Day the Enemy attacked our Lines, notwithftanding the advantageous Po-fitibn we were in. This Attack was executed v�ith great Impetuohty. Our Flanks were covered by feveral mafle'd Batteries, which did not play 'till the Enemy were come within a certain Diftance of us; fo that they found them-felves then, as it were, furrounded by the Fire of all our Batteries, of which 150 Pieces of Cannon fired conftatitly for five Hours fucc.efliv.ely. This Fire was accompanied with a great quantity of Granadoes thrown from tae In-trenebments ; (q that it was a moft dreadful Scene. After we had pufh'U'back ihe Enemy, our Troops iffued out of their Intrenehments. The Advantage we have gained is very confiscable. We have m-ade a.great Number of Prifoners. ancTtaken from the Enemy Part of their Artillery and Baggage, with many Standards and Colours. The King and the Dauphin were at the Head of the Intrenehments during the whole Action. His Majefty ordered particular Care to be taken of the wounded Prifoners. We have a great many Englifli, among whom there are fome Officers of Note. The Siege (the principal Operations of which were interrupted toe 9th, 10th and 1 ith Inlt.) has juft been refumed with freQi Vigour. The Town muft have greatly fufferedby the Bombs and red-hot Balls already thrown jntp it. Our Troops have lodged themfelves on the Saillant Angles of the Covert Way, and we are now battering in Breach. We hear the Enemy retreated laft Night under the Cannon of Aeth. Count Saxe ordered them to be purfued a little while by a Body of Horfe and Dragoons, and M. Graf-fin's Pandours, who fell upon the Baggage, and made a ' good Booty. A Detachment cf our Army march'd away ' this Morning towards Mons.' Letten from Aeth, of the 15th Infi N.S. fay, that the Allies loft 20 Pieces of Cannon, and a great many Waggons 1.1 den with Ammunition ; fuch a Pannick having fuddenly feized thofe who had the Charge of. them,, that they jpde away full fpeed with the Horles; fo that the Army could hot poffibly bring them afterwards. As for the Accounts by this Mail from the Camp of the Allies, they are much the fame as thofe already.published ; that the Englifli fuffer'd moft, and that if the Battle had been fought in an open Plain, the French had certainly been beaten. As for tie Lofs of the Enemy, tbeygcan fay nothing of it, but by the Report of Deierters it is computed at about 1.o,c>ap. Men. Yefterday Mjorri^g'fjn Exprefs arrived at the RigU .Hon*?tSl#g5dpDafingWn's Office, with, pifpatches from the Army.^n: tyfiich was contained a Lift of thekill*d, wounded, and miffing, among the Britiih and Hanoverian Troops, in the late Action before Tournay } wftich we are allured is as follows, Killed.
