On Wedncfdny Marfhal Relleifle and hisBrcther fet out for Dover, in order to embark for France.--A late French Author, in his Treatife of The Sec/et Hiflory of Perfia, fa? given thefe two Great Men this Character, in Pages 1 ;7, 11s and 119 of the Englifh Tranflation of that Book, pjbiifhed by Mrs.Cooper, in Pater-nofter-Row. ' There was at that Time at the Court of France one ' Marfhal de Belleifle, a Man who had a great deal of 1 Wit, and was not lefs ambitious He was not very ' young, and had palled all his Life-time in the Profeffion ' of Arms, of which he had made a ferious Study, He was brave, ibmetimts rafh, but a good Ojrker and very ' underftanding. Though he fatigued the Soldiers by fre-' quent Reviews and Exercifes, yet he was very much ' beloved by them, becaufe he procured them fome Perqui-' fites, by employing them in the Works of the Towns of his Government, and becaufe lie fupported them againfl tneir Officers, for whom he was faid not to have ' a fufficient Regard. He was lively, obftinate in his Opinions, forming Projects, and wifhing with very good Reafon, to be raifed to the higheft Rank in the Armies, in which notwithftanding his Capacity, he had been but ilowly advanced. His Family, tho'not ancient, was il-' luftrious. His Grandfather M. Fouquet had been in the Miniflry, and died out of Favour. This Difgrace did * confiderably leffen the Credit of his Family ; but as it was very rich, it fupported itfelf, and Marfhal De Belleifle, who was become the Head of if, was much efteem'd at Court. He was defirous to know every Thing, and ' omitted nothing that could acquaint him with the ftrong ' and weak Sides of the feveral Powers of Europe; which, ' together with the Correfpondenrie he kept every where, ' gave him fo much Work, that he was faid to have daily ' employed fix Secretaries. He was enterprifing, envied ' by fome, and thought by many not to know how to fuit ' to his Projects the neceffary M-eans to make them fuc-' ceed. He had a Brother feven Years younger than he, ' alio an Officer in the Armies of France, and who was ' not inferior to him with regard to Wit, but more fedate, more prudent, who examin'd Things more cooly, and ' before tie en;er'd upon any Enterprize, always confider'd ' how he could get through it. Thefe two Brothers lived together in a very good Underffandingr and the Eldeft ' was pleafed to confult the Younger, whofe Advice, 'tis ' faid, proved of;en very ufeful to him.' Early Yefterday Morning arrived a Mail from Oflend, by which we have Advice, that on the 5th Inftant, feveral Dutch Tranfports, with a Dutch Regiment, arrived at Oftend, and were fafely landed 5 but notwithftanding that, many private Letters fay, that 'tis impoffible the Garrifon fhduld hold out much longer, as the French daily gain'd fome Advantages. Yefterday was held a Court of Admiralty at Doctors-Commons, when the L'tifperanee, a French Privateer of feven Guns, taken by the Eagle Snow Privateer, was con-demn'd as a legal Prize. At the fame Time the St. Vincent taken by the Indaftry Privateer, and carried into Guetnfey ; and the Providence and St. Philip taken by the Sutherland Privateer, were condemned as legal Prizes. The fame Day the Phaenix, an Englifh Ship, taken by a French Privateer, who in carrying her to a French Port was drove by Strefs of Weather on the Ifland of Scilly, was condemn'd as Perquifites of Admiralty ; but a Claim being put in by the Owners, fhe was ordered to be reftored, paying 300 1. for Damages and Charges. At the fame Time came on the Tryal of the Hampfhire an Englifh Ship, taken by a French Privateer the ioth of May laft, and afterwards retaken by the Dublin Privateer the 4th of June following, when one Moiety of the Ship and Cargo was condemn'd for the Ufe of the Captors. The fame Dayjcame on a remarkableCaufe of a Genoefe Ship taken by the SalifburyMan of War the 12th of Augufi 1742, wherein were feveral Coache?, Sedans, Cloaths, &e. belonging to Duke de Coriano and Duke de Caitiano, both Genoeie Noblemen, when after a full Hearing they were ordered to be reftored. At the fame Tim? came on the Trial of the St. Francois a French Ship, tskm by the Chatham Man of War, May 23, 1744. It w.is proved th.it the Cargo was put on Bo:rd at Smyrna, April 1 and the Ship fan'd b.-fore they had Knowledge of any War with France ; and the Goods being the Property cf Englifh Merchants, both Ship and Cargo were ordered to be reftored. On Wednefday Lit d ed a: Kent.fh Town Mrs. Furzer, Wife of Mr. Furzer, an eminent Attorney of New-Inn ; lamented by all that knew iier.
