'Yefterday arrived the Mails due from Holland and Flanders. t ExtraSl of a Letter from Genoa, July 23, NJ$. � Th$ Junction of the Jnfant Don Philip's Army with * that commanded by the Duke of Modena, was en-� tirely effected the 20th Inttant, and we reckon that they � marched forwards Yetferday to attack the Enemy. Ac-� cording to the Plan of Operations fettled by the infant, � his Royal Highnefs will give them Battle if they wait for * him, and lay Siege to 7 ortona if they retire.   The Re- * publick's Army advances with the Spaniards and Neapo- * litans, and canfifts of 18000 Men, well armed and ' equipped, and as eager for Aclion as Veteran Troops. � As foon as Don Philip's and Count Gage's Armies were * joined, the Auftrian General, Count Schulenberg, threw * two Bridges a-crofs the Po near the Place where the Ta-*. naro falls into it, and fent over all h * heavy Baggage to * Meda, Cairo and St. Nazario ; after which his Excel- * lency joined his Troops to thofe of the King of Sardi- * nia near Monte-Caitello and Bafignana, between the Po * and the Tanaro. ' As 'tis not unlikely that an Attempt may be made to 4 bombard this City, we have fufficiently provided againft * it, there being aftually 300 Pieces of Cannon in Battery, * ready to fire upon any Squadron that fhall draw near the � Port with fuch an Intention. � The Britifh Conful and the King of Sardinia's Agent, embarked here laft Sunday with their Families, for � Leghorn, on board the Leverpool, an Englifh Man of � War. They write from Breflau, that the Veldt Marflial Baron Buddenbrock fet out the 29th of laft Month, N.S. from Schweidnitz for the Army, the King of Pruffia defigning to �employ him in the Enterprise for which he has paffed the Elb. They add, that Lieutenant General NafTau is marched for Neuftadt, having firft reinforced the Potts of Zregen-h'als, Ottmachau and Patfchkau, in order to fecure the Lower Silefia entirely from the Jncurfions of the Huhga-rion Infurgents. We hear from Berlin, that a Courier from the Prufljan Army in Bohemia pafled thro' that City the 31 It of July, N.S. going to the reigning Prince of Anhalt-Deffau, with Difpatches which the King has charged him to deliver into that Prince's own Hand. This Courier delivered fome Letters at Berlin, which leave the Publick in Expectation of fome great Event, as the following Expreflions are found in thofe Letters; ' The King is meditating an En-� terprizt, which, by all Appearances, will make a great * Noife. in the World.   We cannot yet teli what the Na- * ture oT it may be, nor where, nor how it is to be exe-� cuted.   It is not his Majefty's Cultom to blab out his De- * figns, but can't be long before we know mdre of the * Matter. According to Letters from Francfort, Baron Keffelftadt, firft Embaflador from the Elector of Mentz, arrived there the 3d Inftant, N.S. and brought Word that his Electoral Highnefs would arrive towards the End of the Month. The Grand Duke of Tuicany's Army continued in the fame Pofition on the Right of the Neckar, and the French Army remains between Oggerfheim and Franckendahl. Letters from Vienna advife, that the Queen has given Orders to fequefter all the Eftates and Effects of the Ge-rioele in her Dominions. They add, that the Body of Pruffian Troops that advances up to Cofel, has retired from it, notbeing able to undertake the Siege for Want'of Artillery, and 'tis faid, it is gone to join the Corps under Lieutenant General Naffau. * Extrac! of a Letter �from Brujfels, Augu.fi 6, N.S.  We have received Advice, that the French have marked out a Camp at Greimbergue, on the Left Side ' of the Canal of Vilvorden, and that their Monarch is to 4 take up his Quarters at the Abbey of Affleghem.  The Deputies of the States of Brabant, who returned to the �. French Army to treat about the Contributions, came * back the 3d Inftant, with a "Report that bis rnoft Chriftian * Majefty exacts of this Dutchy One Million Two Hundred � Thoufand Florins, payable at two Terms.   The States * affemble again this Day, in order to come to a final Re-'folutio'n about thir Affair;'"and 'tis generally thought ' that they will follow the Regulation made in the Year * 1711 - * The 4th Inftant in the Evening Count Kaunitz receiv'd ' Advice, that the Blockade of Dendermond Was quite formed ; that the King of France was at Affleghem near Aloft, and, that it was to be feared the. Enemy were feekinjl to cut off our Communication with Antwerp. Our Governor has doubled the Guards at all the Polls, and laid under Water the Meadows without the Gate of Flanders. The Head Quarters of the Allies are now at Vilvorden, and their Camp is very ttrong, both by its natural Situation and the Intrenchments thrown up at the Avenues to it; and it has been reinforced by the 5000 Men that were expected from Namure. Neverthclefs, we are afiured that the Court thinks of removing from hence in a few Days. Count de la Uppe having iffued out of Namure at the Head of a Detachment, let Fire to the great Magazines of Forrage which the Enemy had at Huy.  Advices from diners Places on the Frontiers fay, that the Troops which were in the Neighbourhood of Valenciennes, Maubeuge, Binch, &c. have begun their March for Alface, and that they make up a Body of 30,000 Men. The Report of the French King's fpeedy Return to Versailles, which we were amufed with a few Days ago, feems to be quite deftitute of any Foundation; that Prince wanting to make his Entry here, as we are told he  has declared, before he leaves the Netherlands. Yefterday the Lords of the Admiralty appointed Captain Smith, an old experienced Officer, to be Commander of the Devonfhire Man of War of 80 Guns, lately launched at Woolwich. This Day will be launch'd at Sheernefs the Nottingham Man of War, of which Lord Graham is appointed Commander. The Whitehaven, Forfter, from Maryland, for London, is taken by the French, and carried into Breft. The Neptune Privateer, Capt. Taylor, belonging to Dartmouth, is taken by fome French Men of War, and carried into Port Louis. It is faid that three or four other fmall Englifh Privateers, are taken by the fame Ships. We hear that the Ships employed to tranfport the Troops to Oftend, are ordered to repair immediately to Gravefend, and wait there for farther Orders. On Wednefday laft the Dublin Yacht, Capt. Weller, faiPd from Portfmouth, with the Ships bound for Ireland. Yefterday came Advice, that the Gireghtigreid, a Dutch Eaft-India Ship was arrived in Holland ; who left off Iceland, 14 Sail more of Dutch India-men. We hear, that the Prince of Wales, Capt. Pclly, an Englifh Indiaman, is with the above Fleet. Yefterday Wine, Beer, and other Provifions, were put on Board one of his Majefty's Yatchs at Dover, who is to carry over Marflial Belleifle and his Brother next Monday to France.
