War, Baltimore Sloop, and the Outward-bound. Wind S.byE. Grave/end, May 14. Pafs'd by the Mary and Dorothy, Killock, from Lifbon ; the Hannah Juftina, Arvis, from Stockholm ; Mary, Martin, from Philadelphia ; and the Gibraltar Packet, Wright, from Antigua. The Catherine, M'Cleland, from St. Kitts, is arrived at Kinfale, in 30 Days. The Hope, Rofs, from Barbadoes, at Cork. The Green-Cattle, Emerton, from London, at Barbadoes. The Anne, Fenn, from Lancafter, at St. Kitts. LONDON. ExtraS of a Letter from Lucca, April 30, N.S. ' When the combined Army of Spaniards and Neapoli-' tans arrived at Caftelnuovo, they were extremely fatigued \ * and had it rained or fnowed during their March, they ' mull undoubtedly have loft Abundance of Men. We J art affured that this Army confiffS of 24000 Foot and * 4000 Horfe, and 3000 Mules employed in carrying the ' Baggage. The firft Column having marched the 28th � Inttant from Caftelnuovo, paffed the Nightat Gallicano, * arrived the next Day at Borgo, and is expe&ed this E- * vening at Pont-a-Moriono : To-morrow it will reach 4 Pont-di-pietra Santa, which is three Miles from this City, * and proceed fiom thence the next Day to Maflarafa, * where it will halt the 3d of May; but we don't know ' what Rome this Column will take afterwards. We have ' baked and are fill] baking great Quantities of Bread for 4 the Combined Army. The Senate has fent the Cheva-' Her Francis Bernardini to the Duke of Modena, to wait * upon his Serene Highnefs while he (lays in this State, and 'the Duke feems mightily pleafed with this Mark of the * Republick's Regard for him.   M. Caefar Sentini and * three other principal Members of the Senate are to fet * this Evening in Quality of Embafladors to compliment . * the Duke, and invite him to come hither with Count � Gage, and the General of the Neapolitan Troops.   A * Report is juft fpread that a large Body of Auftrians is ar-' rived on the Frontiers of the Repablick of Genoa, ' within iz or 15 Miles of Surzana, in order tooppofethe * Paffage of the Spaniards ; but it is generally believed that ' this Report wants Confirmation, becaufe we know that * Prince Lobkowitz is at Parma, and that he has net * Troops enough to make a large Detachment, and a fmall * one would not anfwer the End. Letters from Milan affure us, that the King of Sardinia has refolved to march a Body of 8000 Men to Placentia, and follow them foon after in Perfon with fome more Troops, in order to fecure this City from any Infult from the Spaniards. According to Advices from Duffeldorp of the iSth Inff. N.S. the Prince of Conti was certainly making Difpofitions for attacking the Allies on the Lower Rhine ; and the Duke of Aremberg, they fay, is refolved not to venture a Battle, 'till the Arrival of the Auftrian Troops expected from Bavaria, which they begin to be afraid will not come Time enough to free the Duke from the Neceflity of retreating before the Prince of Conti. Extras of a Letter fromDurlach, May 8, N.S. ' The 6th Inftant a Body of 6000 French from Fri- * bourg arrived "at Langen-Steinbach,' and all the other ' Troops of that Nation are affemhling on the Neckar and * the Entz, between Vaching and P/onzheim.   This laft * Town is garrifoned by 500 Troops of the Circle, the ' Commandant of which has refufed Admittance to the ' French, tho' they demand it.   The Auftrian Huffars * have appeared again in this Neighbourhood, and have * frequent Skirmifhes with the French, almoft always to � the Difadvantage of the latter, who, we hear, have al-' ready fent a great Number of wounded Men to Landou. ' We have juff. received Advice that all the French ' Troops marched away this Morning from the Neigh-' bourhood of Pfbrttrfbeim, Steinbach, &c. in order to re-' tire into their large Camp at Vaihing, They give out ' that they are going to return to Bavaria ; but no Body * gives Credit to it, becaufe it is much more for their ' Advantage to keep on theNeckir. On Sunday laft Admiral Martin, with the Squadron under his Command arrived at Plymouth from his Cruize, having mifs'd the French Squadron he went in purfuit of : However, he has brought in with h^m the Diana Privateer, of 12 Carriage Guns, and 93 Men, belonging to Bayonne ; and the Gracia, bound from Bourdeaux to Quebec.

The Friendfhip, Mafon ; the Aurora, Penkethman ; and Fiamborough's Prize ; all bound from South-Carolina to Cowes. Yefterday arrived a Mail from Lifbon, by which we have received the agreeable News, that the Fleet of Merchantmen that went out under Convoy of Admiral Medley, were got fafe into Lifbon, under Convoy of the Lud-low-Caitle Man of War.   Alfo. That the Kouli Kan Privateer had taken and carried into Lifbon, on the ift of May, N.S. a rich Spanifh Ship, call'd the St. Jofeph N-S. Granado, from the Havannah, ladtn with Tobacco, Sugar, Cocoa, and Specie. Alfo, that the Marie Elizabeth,- Dubois, a French Ship, is taken by the Durfley Privateer, and carried into the fame Place.

We have certain Advice from Cork, that the Thurlce, and Blake Privateers, (both belonging to Leverpool) have taken and brought in there a rich French Ship, call'd the Admiral, bound home to Bourdeaux from Martinico. The Generous, Laborde, bound from Bourdeaux for Martinico, is taken and carried into Barbadpes. On Monday laft the Eagle Privateer, Capt.Bazely, drove a French Privateer, of 4 Carriage and 14 Swivel Guns afhorenear Boloign, andjafterwards fir'd feveral Shot thro' her. The John and Mary Brig.
