' The King's Army, which is 65000 ftrong, began its ' Marcn t'other Day, in order to draw near the Frontiers � of Bohemia, and cover the Principality of Schweidnitz, * againfl which the combined Army of Aullrians and ' Saxon?, feem'd determined to bend their firit Efforts. ' The Difpatches which the Marquefs de Valory lately re- * ceived from Paris, and has communira'ed to the King. ' contain among other Things, " That his molt Chriltian " Majdly ha> firmly refolvcd to carry on the War in " Germany, and even to continue it by himfclf alone, " in Caft the other Princes of the Union of Francfort " fliould fide wi:h the Queen of Hungary, or embrace " a NreiVtralTty":"^Thaf^p3ri'Advices come from Munich, " an extra ordinaiy Council had been held at V'erfaihes, " wherein it was refolved to ercreal^ the French Army in " the F.mpiie to 1 20,0.-0 Men, and to keep an .Army of " Obfervat-bn on the Rlvne, as well to cover the " Frontiers of the Ki.igdom, as to bridle the Princts " and Circles of the Empire, and oblige them to remain " Neuter: That his Prufii--in NHdly might lb much the " mt.re relv on all thi'-, becaule the m-jit Chriftian Kino;.

Neverthelefs, fome Per.-ple think it is the ' prefent juncture of Affairs, which becomes every Day ' more thorny to France, rather than true Friendship for � our Court, or afincere Defire to promote its Advantage, � that has extorted thefe pompous A flu ranees from her ; ' and that if fhe coulJ find an Opportunity to makeupM.it-� ter? without the Participation of her Allies, fhe would ' make no Scruple to facrifice their [mere/Is, and would ' find Reafons enough, good or bad, to jullify her Con-' duel. The Advantage fhe has lately gained near 1'our- * nay, which the Marqueis de Valory imparted to the * King the Moment he received the News, fas not a little * contributed to keep his Majclly JtcaJy in his Refolutions.

It is laid that the Orford Man of War had an Engagement for ieveral Hours with two French Fifty Gun Ships in the Windward Pafl'ige, and was very much fhatter'd ; and that This only gave Rife to the Report of her being kit: --Which we hope may prove true. We are informed, that the Tryal, Captain [efferies, a Flag of Truce, from the Havannah, for Carolina, with J'rifoners, was taken 20 Leagues at Sea, by a Spaniflj Privateer, who 'tis faid, was fitted out on purpoie.

On Friday lad upwards of 50 Sail of VefTels, belonging *'to Yarmouth, arrived there from Rotterdam, which Place they left the Morning before; when it was very confidently affirrrPd, that the French had near double the Number kill'd and wounded, that the Allies had, in the late Battle near Tournay.
