' For thefe two or three laft Polls we writ, that Count Kevenhuiler, the Second Embaffador of Bohemia to the Dyet of Election, did not fucceed in h s Comnrffion to the King of Poland, in Regard to his Mdjefty'a Ehdoral Vote in Favour of the Grand Duke of Tufcany. Another Letter that we have received from Dr. fden da*cd the 23d of July, which is two Days after Count Keven-hu'ler's Departure, confirms this News, adding, that this iVIiniller did not go away fati'-ried with the Succefs of his Negociations, feeing the Court of Drefden would not quite tye up the King's Hands, in Regard to his Electoral Vote especially. ' Neverthelefs, they write from the Hague, that the Courier which Mr. Trevor receivt-d lalt Friday from Hanover, has brought his Excellency the News that the King of Poland has given Count Kevenhuiler the hrongett AfTurances, that he will not only confent to the relioring the Aftivi:y of the Vote of Bohemia, but will alfo give his own Vote in Favour of the Grand Duke of Tufcany. � Time will fhew which of thefe two contradictory Accounts is the trued ; but in the mean while we fuppofe, nay believe, that Mr. Trevor is better informed, than we can be by private Letters. Granting then, that the Britiih Minifter's Intelligence is true, we mull: of Courfe conclude that the Negotiation, which was faid to be on the Tapis for engaging the King of Poland to accept of the Imperial Dignity for himfelf, was a meer Fiction, or elfe that it is qoice broke off: And yet we are very well informed, that the Mar-quefs de Vaugrenan and tbe Count del Bene, the French and Spanifh Minifters at Drefden, have had frequent Conferences with the Saxon Miniftry, ever fmce Count Kevenhuiler left that Court. One fhojld likewife conclude, upon the aforefaid Grounds, that the pretended Accommodation between the Kings of Poland and Pruffia is evaporated in Smoke. All this will foon be cleared up. In the mean time we can allure, that the Report of an Accommodation between his Pruffian Majefty and the Queen of Hungary, is entirely falfe and groundlefs. It is very probable, that we fhall fpeedily receive fome more important News from Bohemia. The PaiTage of the Eb is an Event that employs the Thoughts of our Policicisns. It is ind=ed faid, that his Pruffian Majefty has en. fled that River on'y for the Sake of getting For-rage, which he was in great Want of in the Camp he has quitted ; and this, if itridtly true, was a very good Reafon why his Enemy (hould have bsen more vigilant to keep him in a Camp where they were fure he could not fubfift. But there is great Appearance that the King of Pruffia has fomething elfe in his Head, which we fhall know nothing of'till the Blow is ftruck : However it be, this PafTage leems to be a bold Attempt in Sight of an Army which is faid to be 30,000 ftronger than his ; for we are affured that the Pruffian Army confifts of no more than 50,000 Men, by Reafon of the Detachments fent to Silefia, and 'tis pretended, that the Combined Army is 80,000 ftrong. After all, both Accounts may be wrong. ' We expect to receive this Evening the News of the Allies having abandoned Bruflcls, in order to cover the City of Antwerp. Letter front Pert/mouth, dated "July 27. ' Laft Night arrived at Spithead, the Conception Merchant Ship from Carolina, bound to London ; the Maiter fays, that in his PafTage he was taken by two French Privateers of 20 Guns each, and ranfom'd for 2200 1, Sterling : foon afterwards he was boarded by the Panther Man of War, belonging to Breft, ; but was clear'd the fame Night. The next Morning he failed in Company with a French Privateer, bound a Cruize 5 and off Breil Harbour they met with three French Men of War, (one of which was the Northumberland) having 23 Sail of Merchantmen under their Convoy, going into Breft. Thefe Ships gave an Account, that the Mercury Man of War belonging to Breft, was arrived there in a terrible fhatrered Condition, having lolt upwards of 300 Men, ; in an Engagement, as they reported, with an Englifh TUESDAY, July 30, 1745. Man of War of Seventy Guns, which they pretended ftruck to them, bnt having no Boats were obliged to quit her.-A lame Excufe for leaving fuch a Prize ; but the Truth is they were glad to fly from the Lion's Paws, who had almoft tore them to Pieces. ' Since the above was wrote, we are informed that the Number of French kill'd on board the Mercury was 160, of which Number was the Commander and his Brother; and that the Number of the wounded was 140. They write from Plymouth, that on the 26th Jnftant Admiral Martin fent in there a French Privateer Sloop, which had been out bat 14 Days. Sbe brought an Account the Admiral had alfo taken a Spanilh Privateer, of 1 z Guns and izo Men, which he had afterwards burnt; and likewife took a Ship of about 300 Tons, bound from St. Domingo, but laft from the Havannah, reckon'd very rich; and when left was in Chafe of three other Ships. We are farther informed, by the faid Privateer, that there were in Bourdeaux feven Men of War and 200 Sail of Merchant Ships ready to fail on the firft Notice. A few Days fince Dr. Robert Dalrymple, Brother to Sir Hugh Dalrymple of North Berwick, Bart, was married to Mils Berkeley, Heirefs of Towey, a young Lady of fine Accomplifhments, and a handfome Fortune. Laft Week died at his Seat at Teviotdale, Andrew Ben-net of Chefters, Efq; whofe friendly Difpofition joined with an active Spirit, and great natural Abilities, made his Life generally ufeful, and his Death univerfally regretted. On Saturday laft died, after a long Jllnefs, at Chiflehurft in Kent, the Dutchefs of Ancailer, Lady of - Douglafs, Efq; whofe Death is much lamented by the Poor in the Neighbourhood where fhe liv'd. On Sunday Night laft, about 7 o'Clock, the Crooked Billet Alehoufe in Batterfea-Fields, received considerable Damage by a Flafh of Lightning, great Part of the Chimney was alfo carried by the Storm to a confiderable Diftance from the Houfe; at the fame time there were feveral People drinking in the Houfe, who were ftruck down by the Flafh, but happily received no other Dimage. 7'he fame Night Mr. Dovvnes, a Farmer at Mitcham, was ftruck dead by a Flafh of Lightning, on his Return home from Clapham ; he has left a Wife and four fmall Children, who are inconfolable for his Lofs.
