N.S. * There has been warm Debates in-a Council of War �'n'eltfin the Carnplof the Allies a few Days fince, on the VQueftion, Whether they fhould endeavour to preferve �. landers rather than Brabant. The Duke of Cumber-� land maintained the Affirmative with great Warmth, be- * caufe, if Flanders were loft, the direct Communication * between England and the Netherlands, would be quite � cutoff. The Prince of Waldeck was for defending Bra-4 bant as lying nearer to Germany, from whence great ' Sjjt,�cc"jrs might be_drawjL__TJiis and fome other Difpute3, '4' 'rrave occalwneoTomeUoldr^ thefe two Princes.  We have a Letter from Rarifbon of the 8th Inftant, 4 which fays, that it is very much queftioned at Munich, � whether the Elector of Bavaria will give any Troops to 4 the Queen of Hungary, either to ferve on the Mayn or 4 in Italy, as it is given out in fome Places Abroad. It is 4 true, adds this Letter, that Inftances are making te his 4 Ele&cral Highnefs, for a Body of Troops ; but, on the 4 other Hand, Advices from Munich affure, that fuch 4 Meal'ures are taking there, as tend only to the Obfer-4 vance of an exaft Neutrality, at leaft if one may judge 4 by Appearances; and they even fufpeft that there is yet * fome private Underltanding between Bavaria and France, 4 feeing the latter does Hill fend thither from time to time, 4 pretty large Sums of Money. It is indeed given out, that 4 thefe Sums are in Part of the Arrears due to the late Em-4 peror ; but (add they) it is not likely that France would 4 pay off thofe Arrears, if file forefaw, or even fufpecled, 4 that the Elector would lend or hire his Troops to fight 4 againft her. 4 Our Advices from the Lower Rhine fay, that the two * Armies were in Sight of each other, the Mayn between 4 them. It is very much queftioned, whether the Auftrians 4 will attack the French in the advantageous Poft they oc-4 cupy : And yet they muff, do it, if they have a Mind to 4 drive them away from Francfort, in order to be free at 4 the Election of an Emperor. But the Attempt is dange-4 rous ; and if the Auftrians fhould be worfted in it, their 4 Affairs would be ruined to all Intents and Purpofes. It is 4 yet harder to conceive, how the Auftrians fhould pafs the 4 the Bfhine, and penetrate into France : They might in- * deed do it, if theypleafed, and we really believe that the 4 Prince of Conti would not oppofe them in fuch an At-4 tempt : But how would they fubfi'ft afterwards in a 4 Country, where they have no Magazines, no ftrong 4 Towns, nor Artillery to take any ? And which Way 4 would they propofe to repafs the Rhine in Sight of an * Army as ftrong as theirs ? 4 We expect that Things will be for fome Time at a * Stand in Bohemia, on Account of the large Detachment ' which the King of Pruffia has fent into Silefia, to put a 4 Stop to the incurfions of the Hungarian Infurgents. By Letters from the Hague by the laft Mail, we are af-fured, that it is the univerfal Opinion of all the Foreign Minifters there, that nothing can poffibly favour the Caufe of the Allies fo much as the Choice of the Grand Duke of Tufcany for Emperor ; this the French are fo fenfible of, that they are now ufing their utmoii Efforts to prevent it; and indeed the French Minifter makes no Scruple of declaring, that, in cafe it fhould be fo, the beft Thing he thinks all Parties can do, will be to enter immediately on Negoci-ations for a General Peace, which no Minifter, he fays, will be readier to do, or better pleafed with, than himfelf; and 'tis generally thought he has already Inftructions on t at Head. The fame Letters fay, that General Ligonier has contrived, and laid before bis Majefty, a Scheme for making bftend impregnable, which'tis thought will meet with his Majefty's Approbation, as it has already done of all the principal Engineers in the Allied Army. Yefterday an Account came, that the Francis, Diddear, from Madeira to Carolina, is taken by the French, and carried into Nantz. Laft Monday Marfhal Belleifle and his Brother came from Wind/or, to fee the Phyfick Garden at Chelfea, and Sir Hans loan's Curiofities; at both which Places they' were treated with the utmoft Elegancy and Politenefs ; at which they both exprefs'd the higheft Satisfaction. On Wednefday laft died, at his Houfe on Black-heath, the Hon. John Stanhope, Efq; youngeft Brother to the Earl of Chefterfield, and Member of Parliament, for the Town of Derby. On Tuefday laft Mr. Walton Bridges was appointed Receiver of the Excife for the Ifle of Wight, in the room cf Richard Moore,Efq; deceas'd. FRIDAY,   July 12,   1745. Yefterday Morning about 10 o'clock, *he Men lately draughted from the three Regiments of Guards, went 0� board five Veffels appointed to carry thenj dpwn *? :&raye-fecd, where Ships lie ready fa carry theip jto Oftend, which Place they are to" Garrifoh. The fame Day a Draught was made at Woolwich, of 'Miners* Cadets, Gunnersi Bombardiers and Matroffes, Who are likewife to embark directly for the iaid Place. On Wednefday Night laft feyen pf the Preft Men^in the Tbwerfound means to efcape from thence, by getting up the Chimney of the Barrack wjtere they were lodg'd, and from thence te the Lines, and then dropp'd in the Ditch, without being difqoyer'd. Yefterday the Rev. Mr. Caulthorp was chofen by the Mercers Company, Vicar of Kirton in Lincolnfhire, void by the Ijea'th of fie Rey. Mr. Matthew Robinfon. On Wednefday laft in the Afternoon Mr. Bray, a Callico Erinterat Mitcham, was unfortunately drown'd in theRiver, as he was attempting to fwim.-He has left a Wife and two Children, who are incoofolable for his Lofs. " Yefterday the SefGons ended at the Old-Bailey, when 21 Prifoners were tried, four pf whpmwerp capitally convicted, viz. William Kelly, Thomas St. Legar, and Patrick Cave, for robbing Thomas Piggot, Efq; in the Strand, of a Watch and 40|Guineas.
