ExtraSi of a private Letter from the Hague, dated Augujl 10, N.S. ' According to our Advices from Hanover, Conferences ' were held there, till the 29th of July, between Count * Kevenhuller, Second Embaifador from Bohemia to the ' Dyer, of Election, Baron Erthal, Firft Embaffador to the ' {aid Dyet from the Eleclor of Mentz, and tne King of '�Great-Britain's Minilters; which Conferences turned on' * the AfLir of the Election, particularly the reftoring the ' Activity of the Vote of Bohemia.   We cannot tel] what * was theRefult of thofe Conferences, our Advices varying * concerning it. Some lay that every thing has been fettled ' in fuch a manner, as to make one hope for a fpeedy * Election ; but others allure this Eledtion meets with fo * many Obftacle?, that it is not likely to come on before ' the End of September.   Our Letters from Francfort do * indeed fay, that the Embaffadors continue to a; rive there * fucceffively ; but as feveral of them are yet wanting, and * no body can tell when they will arrive, fo they cannot * determine what Day the Seflions will be opened for the �, Election. � We are farther told from Hanover, that Count Konigf- * feld> the Bavarian Mimfter, has likewife frequent Con- * ferences' with the Britifb and Hanoverian Minilters,- par- * ticularly with the Earl of Harrington : But it is pretended, * that the Elector his Mafter does not mean to give his ' Troops, unlefs it be to join them to thofe of the Circles � of the Empire, in cafe an Affociation can be brought * to bear. ' They write from Munich, that feditions Bills have been * found ftuck up at the Doors of the Churches, and feveral * great Houfes, containing in Subftance, That thofe ivho 4 have given bad Advice to the Elector mufl be torn in * Pieces, &c. fince which the Guards have been doubled, � Soldiers patrol about the Streets both Day and Night, and � Centinels are polled at proper Places to prevent riotous ' Affemblies.   Orders wert iffued at tie fame time for the * Regiment of Thoring to march up immediately to Mu- * nich.   The Veldt-Marfhal Count Seckendorff, againft * whom the People feem to be highly exafperated, has been * obliged to take the neceflary Precautions for the Safety of � his Perfon, and double his Guard at Nymphenbourg. � Baron de B-is in the fame Cafe, and dares not ven- * ture out of Doors without an Efcorte. In Ihort, the Peo-� pie are in a great Ferment, and a total Change of Mca- * Aires feems to be at hand. ^ . ' As to the Motions of the Armies in Bohemia, there is * nothing of any Confequtnce to be faid at prefect. If 4 we may credit Advices from Berlin, the King,of Pruffia * has fome great Project in his Head, and will itrike another * Blow when his Enemies Ieaft exped it. ' Things remain in the Tame Situatiglf on the Rhine, 4 and by all Appearance will continue fo fome Weeks ' longer.   It is from Flanders and ItalyT that we muft look * for important News.   In tbe mean time it is currently * reported, and Advices from good*Hands allure, that the * French are a&ually befieging Oftend. Yefterday Morning Admiral Vernen, attended with a grand Retinue, fet out from his Houfe in Jermyn-ftreer, St. James'j, for Portfmouth, where he is to hoift his Flag on Board the Princefs Royal a 90 Gun Ship, in order to command the Squadron defigned for a fecret Expedition. We hear that Admiral Anfon will hoift his Flag on Board the Prince George, a 90 Gun Ship now in the Downs, who with feven others of the Line will fail in a few Days for the Relief of Oftend. Friday laft the Chancellor of the Dutchy of Lancafter appointed the Rev. Mr. James Warburton to the Reclory of Audlem in the County of Cheller, void by the Deceafe of the laft Incumbent. Admiral Vernon has appointed Mr. Ramfey, Clerk of the Securities to the Hon. the Commiffioners of Excife, to be his Secretary, a Place, worth 5001. a Year. His Majefty's Ship the Wezel is arrived [n the Downs' from a Cruize, and has brought in a Dutch,Ship.from Flufhing, laden with Powder, Shot, and other. warlike Stores, which he took eff Dungenefs. The Francis, Ricbardfon, from Oftend for1 Cork, is taken off the LandVEnd, by the Mercury, a French Man ef War, and carried into Breft. We hear from Carmarthenfhire, that Richard Gwynne, of Galiani, Efq; a Gentleman well attached to the true In-tereft of his King and Country, intends to offer himfelf a a Candidate for that County at the next Election, in the . room of Sir Nicholas Williams, Bart, deceafed.
