' It is with equal Vexation and Aftonifhment that we * reflect on the Reports with which thePublick was amufed ' lait Week, in regard to the Situation of Affairs on the � Rhine. At firfl, it was given out, that the Prince of 4 Conti's Army had been totally defeated, with the Lofs of * upwards of thirty thoufand Men, killed, wounded, or � taken Piifonei-s. The next Report was, that the faid * Army was fo ihemmed in, that it could not efcape, feeing � it had no Brjidges to pafs the Rhine, General Bernclau * having deilrovxd them all, and there being befides a great ' Scarcicy of Provifions in the French Camp : So that we ' expefted the next Poft would bring the News of the �� Prince of Conti's having furrendered himfelf a Prifoner of x War with his whole Army. But all thefe mighty Ad-� vantages have ended in'the French Army's barely repafi-� ,ing the Rhine; which Event has alfo been very faJfely ' related, the Lofs of the Enemy being, exaggerated, ac-' cording to Cuftom. All our Letters from Franc-fort, and * other Places in Germany agree, that this Lofs amounts * only to a few hundred Men ; the Reafon of which is plain * enough, the G�-and Duke's Army being then too far from * the French to do them any Mifchie� and only a fmall ' Detachment of irregular Troops, having harrafled their ' Rear Guard. However it be, feeing the .French hav6 ' repaffed the Rhine, we now flatter ourfelves that there * will be no more Obltacles to the Election of an Emperor. * But befides'that, all our Letters aiTure-, that as yet Things ' are not ready for proceeding to this Election, we don't.fed * that the French Army was more capable, of hindering the � Election while oa the other Side of the Rhine, after-the * Junction of the two Armies under the Counts Traun and * Bathiani; fince the latter has a free Communication with * Francfort, and that the Minifters of the Diet could go to � and fro as they thought fit. The Thing that will pro, * bably prevent the Ele&ion, is the Divifioa amongfl * the Members of the Empire, and-the Dread of an endlefs 4 War, as one may call it, if they elect the Grand Duke. 1 ' They write from Drefden, that Count Key*,, uller, * fecond EmbafTador from Bohemia to the Dyet of Election? * has not.fucceeded in his Commiffion.. He went to Dref� * den to engage the King of Poland to give his Vote to the � Grand Duke of Tufcany, and fo make fure ov'this Article ' before he proceeded to Francfort: But we ;.re,;aiTured, the * Saxon Miniftry have anfwered him, that the King does * not mean to tie up his Hands with regard to his electoral � Vote. This fhews that his Polifh Makfty has not yet * engaged himfelf iri any thing towards the Court of * Vienna, with refpect to this Point; and we don't hear, < that any other Electors have engaged deeper than the King ' of Poland, except it be the Elector of Bavaria, who is * partly obliged thereto by the Treat) of Fueffen, and per- * haps the King of Great-Britain, a? Elector of Hanover. * ' They further tell us-from Dref-n, that M. de Bulau, * late Minifler fom Saxony at Beri. is to return thither. TUESDAY, July 23, 1745. 4 in a fhort Time ; fiiom whence they infer, that there is ' not only a Negotiation on the Tapis between the Kings ' of Poland and Pruffia, but will needs have it to be almoft ' as good as concluded. ' Our Advices from the Netherlands are ftill very difa- * greeable, and. we are apprehenfive that our Army will ' foon be obliged to decamp again-, to avoid being fur-' rounded. Extra 8 of a. Letter from Toole, dated July 20. * On Wednefday laft the Raleigh Privateer belonging to ' London, took a Veflel from Sweden; for France, and ' put 14 of her Hands aboard, eight of whom run away * in their Boat, and the fix that remain'd behind, were 4 oblig'd to fubmit to the Swedes, who put them afhore at 4 a Place call'd Wrifpih, from whence they came hither. 4 As the Privateer was not out of Sight, 'tis to be hoped 4 flie will purfue and retake her Prize.
