The Duke of Argyl, Rigby, from Montferrat, is arrived at Leverpool. LONDON. Yefterday arrived the Mails from Holland and Flanders. They write from Pe'terfburgh, th'aTiOs xertafh *the Court iffuedOrdersfortheTroops in theConquered Provinces to hold .themfelves in Readinefs to march, but that only ibme Regiments are to be draughted from them, in order form a Camp in the Neighbourhood of that City, againlt the Marriage of the Grand Duke of Ruffia, which is all the Ufe the Emprefs intends to make of her Forces in the prefent Conjuncture. We hear from Drefden, that the King has received a Courier from the Duke of Saxe-Weiffenfelds, with Dif-patches importing, that fince the 2 2d of June, N.S. the Pruffian Troops had made feveral Attempts upon Konigf-gratz,' and even attacked it with Cannon ; but that tne Generals Wallis and Nadafti, who command the Troops deftined to cover that Poll, repulfed thera every Time with Lofs: That the Combined Army was itill in the fame Portion, the Right clofe to Pardubitz : That j he Artillery fen from'Saxony joined'fhe Army the 2.5th, and that the Cannon which the Auftrians expected from Moravia came into the Camp a Day or two after. Letters from Breflau of the 30^0f June, N.S-. fay, that their frefheft Advices from the K.ing\of Pruffia'j Army were dated the 27th, that Konigfgratz was Itill in the Hands of the Auftrians, the greatelt Part of their Army being at hand to fuftain that Poft ; wherefore, his'Pruffian Majefty was bringing up the Left Wing of his Army, in order to make a new Attempt upon the place, the Troops that had already attacked it, having mifcarried by Reafon of the too great Diftance between them and the Corps that was deftined to fuftain them. * * From Berlin we hear that the Troops of the Camp of Magdebourg have received Orders to go and pitch their Tents on the Frontiers of Saxony, but not to proceed a Step further at prefent. . , ... According to Advices from Florence, the Regency of Tufcany have at laft confented to let the Spanifh and Neapolitan Troops, that were left behind by Count Gage, pafs through that Dutchy, upon Condition that they march in four Columns, and tak% their Route by Aquaprudente, Caftel-Fiorentino, Funechiaand Maffa. From Naples we hear," that the King had iffued Orders, charging ail Captains to get their Troops and Companies compleat to the ift of July, and all other Officers to repair to their refpe&ive Regiments before that Time. The Grand Duke of Tufcany arrived at Wurtzbourg, the 2d Inftant, N.S. accompanied by the Prince and Bifhop of that Place. ExtraB of a Letter from Francfrt, July 4, N.S. ' The Van-guard of the Auftrian Army, confining of 4 between 3 and 4000 Men, which was polled at Mekrholt 4 on the left Side of the Kintz, began its March the iff 4 Inftant along that River, in order to advance as far as 4 Langenfervelt, which lies within two Leagues of Hanau : '"General TrrpsVTErps, which confifts of 6000 Men, * followed foon after, and the Corps under General Bern-4 clau came and took Poft at Licblefs, extending them- * felves towards Niedergrund. There is alfo feme Auf-' rian Cavalry and.Jnfanfry on the Right fide of the Kintz * between Gelnhaulen and Rothenberg: The Body of 4 Dutch Troops and 15 Regiments cf Hanoverians are 4 likewife poited on that Side. The Head-Quarters are at 4 Gelnhaufen. Yefterday the Corps under General Trips 4 drew a little.nearer Hanau, and he detached 1000 Men 4 to go and meet the Grand Duke of Tufcany, who is ex-4 pe&ed this Day or To-morrow in the Army. The * Prince of Conti's Army is ftill'in the fame Pofts, and it 4 feems his Serene Highnefs has refolved to regulate his * Motions by thefe of the Allies.' They write from:Ingoldftadt, that the* Heffian Troops had their Arms, Colours, &c. reftored to themthe 28th and 29th of June, N.S. and that they were to begin their March the ift of July for the Mayne, by the Way of Nu-. remberg, where the Heffian General will find further In-ilru&tons. In the mean . time, they expect at Ratifbon, that thefe Troops will join the Auftrian Army. As for the Palatine Troops made. Prifoners after the Peace concluded between the Courts of Vienna and Munich, they don't expect to fee them releafed, fince the Auftrians have recently exacted new Contributions- from the Territories of Neu-bourg and other Places belonging to the Elector Palatine. We are told from Caffel, that a Negotiation is on Foot between that Court and the Maritime Powers, if not already concluded, for putting the Heffian Troops that ferved in Bavaria, into the Service of thefe Powers, in Confide-Mtion of a Subfidy. From Cologne we have Advice, that a new Subfidy is on the Tapis between his SereneHighnefs the Elector and the-Maritime Powers, by Virtue of which the 10,000 Munfter Troops that have been affembled for fome Time paft, are to march forthwith for Flanders, ahd^ reinforce the Army of the Allies.' According to Letters from Genoa, the Spaniards and French were advancing towards the Auftrians and Piedmon-teze: the latter lay at Rivolta near Tortona, extending themfelves towards Novi. A Detachment of French has defeated a Body of Piedmonteze Militia in the Valley of Oneglia, and taken 200 of them Prifoners. ExtraS of a Letter from Bruffels, July 5, N.S. ' The French have made various Motions with their Troops, undoubtedly to conceal their real Defign. The 4 3d Inftant we received Advice, that a confiderable Body 4 of them marched the Day before from the Camp at Tournay in three Columns, the firft of which took the ' Route of Courtray, the fecond that of Conde and St. 4 Guiflain, and the 3d went towards Maubeuge, to join 4 the Troops there under the Command of M. Phelippe, 4 Lieutenant-General. At the fame Time we received Ad-4 vice, that the French Grand Army was marching in fix ' Columns, to come and occupy the Camp of Cambron ; 1 that his Moil Chrifiian. Majefty was to fix his Head- Quarters at the Abbey of that Name, and that a Detach-" 4 ment had taken Poft at the Bridge of Efpieres on the 4 Scheld between Tournay and Oudenard. The Ceunt de 4 Kaunitz has^fince received an Exprefs with the News, 4 that the French were come toencamp within half a League ' of Aeth ; that a Body of i8,coo had divided themfelves between Soignies andBinck,drawfng towardsMarienbourg; 4 that the Troops which were at the Bridge of Efpieres had 4 marched towards Deynfe on the Lys, within two Leagues ' of Ghent; and that Marfhal Count Saxe's Plan feemed 4 to be to furround the Army of the Allies, which is ac- tually encamped between Ninove and Enghien, if they did not decamp this Day, as we are informed they would; 4 but what Route they will take next, we cannot tell. ' Since the Receipt of thefe Advices we are in a great 4 Confternation here : The Governor has ordered the Gates 4 of the City to be fhut at Eight o'Olock in the Evening, ' and opened later in the Morning'than ufual. The French 4 raife Contributions as far as Nivelle, and the Train of 4 heavy Anillery they bring with then*, confifts of near 4 200 Pieces of Cannon and Mortars. By the Pofition of 4 their Troops, one mould think that they defign to lay 4 Siege to Narnure or Oudenard, for they have 30,000 4 Men polled within three Leagues of the former, and 4 Count Lowendahl, its faid, is detached with 30 Batallions 4 to invert the latter ;' but after all we think theii real De- ' fign is to give the Allies Battle. Yefterdayjyiorning a Meffenger arrived at the Duke of Newcaltle's Office from Flanders, with fome Difpatches of the utmoft Importance. And foon after there was a current Report that there had been an Action in Flanders, greatly to our Difadvan-tage; but as the Story was told different ways, and no Particulars mention'd, that could be depended on, we avoid faying any thing concerning it. Letters by Yefterday's Flanders Mail inform us, that a few Days ago died at Ghent, Captain Miffinden, belonging to Ogilvie's Regiment of Foot, greatly lamented. Yefterday there was Advice, that the Poftillion of Ali-cant, a Spanifh Regifter Ship, bound from Vera-Cruz, for Cadiz, is taken by an Englifh Privateer of 24 Guns. Yefterday the Durfley Privateer, Capt. Bates, came up the River, from a Cruize. Letter from Newcaftle, June 29. 4 We hear, that the Perfon on boafd the Efther, who 4 lately fail'd from this Port for Virginia, taken in her 4 Paffage, by the Royal Cruizer, a Dunkirk Privateer, and which Perfon was taken for Ranfom,writes to his Friends 4 in this Town, that the good Ufage he has met with from ' the Captain and Officers of the Privateer is almoft beyond Expreffion,& being ufed more like a Relation than a Prifo-4 ner of War ; and that the faid Privateer has taken 24 4 Prizes fince the nth of May hi, to the 21ft Inftant. Yefterday died, at his Houfe in Cloak-Lane, Adrian-Coke Ducarel, Efq; one of the Directors of the South-Sea Company ; a very eminent Merchant, and a Gentleman of the greateft Honour, Affability and Good-Nature, and therefore juftly lamented by all that had the Pleafure of his Acquaintance.
