Pafs'd by Lady Kate, Ordus, from Amfterdam j Lawrence and Mary, Rofe s and St. Peter, Swanfon, from Norway ; the Three Brothers, Bance, from New England; Sampfon, Wright; and Bofton, Clark, from Antigua ; and the Two Brothers, Scorff, from Dun-. kirk. The Expedition, Strickland, from London, is arrived at Oporto. The St. Clair, Addis, from Cowes, at Rotterdam. LONDON. ExtraB of a private Letter from Amfterdam, Auguft 27, N.S. ' The folemn Conferences for the Election of an Empe- * ror, were begun the zoth Inftant, and 'tis affirmed, that in ' the Conference of the z$d, the Members prefenr provi- * fion.illy agreed to pitch upon the 21ft of September for ' theEle&ion-Day.   The_Ekc"tor of Mentz is to make his * publick: Entry at Francfort To-morrow ; and tho' the � Saxon Minilters did not afiift at thofe Conferences, the ' King of Poland has ntrvenhelefs made very fair Piomifes ' to the Hanoverian Miniltry.   From all which they con- * dude, that the Election is going to take Place, and thf t ' it will be carried in Spight of the Oppcfition of the Pa-' latine and Brandenburgher, and all that the French can ' do befides.' ' For thefe feveral Weeks paft, the King of Pruflia has ' been threatning to llrike lome boldStrokt, as may be ga-' ther'd from the Journals cf his Army, which he draws ' up himfelf.   His Conduct hitherto fufficiently (hews that * his Menaces are not tjuite in vain. And he is now going ' to unravel the Myfiery in a Manifeflo or Declaration of ' War againlt the King of Poland as Elector of Saxony. ' It was faid laft Poft, that his Pruffian Majefty had declared War againft Saxony ; This News came from Hanover, and was grounded on the Manifefto, which M. An-drie delivered to the Earl of Harrington, containing the Reafons that obliged the King of Pruffia to attack Saxony ; and yet our Letters from Berlin, that arrived Yefterday, fay not a Word of it. On this Occafion it muft be ob-ferved, that there really has been a Negotiation on the Tapis, for inducing the King of Poland to renounce his Alliance with the Court of Vienna, in Confideration of getting him the Imperial Crown, &c. They flattered themielves at Berlin, that this Negotiation would have fucceeded to their Wifhes: But his Polifh Majefty having taken fome Steps that fufficiently (hewed he perfilted in his Engagements with the Houfe of Auftria, and that he had even contracted fome new Ones, the King of Pruffia has refumed, with greater Vigour than ever, his Preparations of acting againft Saxony. It is pretended, that the Court of Drefden feeing the Danger to which the Electorate was going to be expofed, has defired Pruflia to poll-' pone Hoftilities ; and the Arrival of a Secretary from � the Duke of Saxe-WeifTenfels, with Letters for the Prince � of Anhalt-DefTau, gives room to fufpect as much. Our � next Letters will clear up this Point. We have the following Particulars from a Dutch Sailor lately arrived from Breit, viz. ' That he was taken on board * the Wilier, Griffits, and carried into Brett, much about * the Time that the Elizabeth Man of War, of 64 Guns * (formerly belonging to the Englifh) was going out, toge-' ther with a fmall Ship of about 20 Guns, both loaded * with large Ordnance, Small Arms, and Soldiers, the * Number of which he can't tell. -The Elizabeth had a ' very extraordinary Number of Seamen, &c. on board, ' who were forced to go, and near 100 Gentlemen. The ' Captain (who was a Dutchman, call'd Monf. Doe) had ' taken an Oath not to ttrike, in Cafe they wereattack'd ; * and told the above Sailor, and fix more who went on * Board with him, that they were going to Dunkirk, and * would give them a Paffage ; on which they went on board ' with that View, and were well treated by the Captain, ' 'till they were aflced if they would enter, and they fljould ' have a Hat full of Crowns each ; One did take it, who ' was afterwards killed ; the relt denied, and were treated ' very badly. None of the Sailors knew where they were ' bound. He fays, when they went out, they left fix ' Ships of War of about 60 Guns each in Brett, and the ' Northumberland (the fineft Ship they have) of 70 Guns. About four Days after they were out, they engag'd the ' Lion, Capt. Brett. The Elizabeth had 302 Men killed, ' and wounded ; they told him the little Ship was richer than the large one, having many Gentlemen on board ' very richly drefs'd ; he faw the fmall Ship tteer about * N.W. after (he had been filenced by the Lyon. The ' Elizabeth went back to Brelt terribly (hatter'd, and could ' fcarce fwim.   They re-landed the Guns and fmall Arms; and he underliood that flie was to be refitted, and two ' more was to go on the fame Expedition.   When the Elizabeth came back to Brett, he heard there were three ' of the feven Ships of Warfent out to look for our Eaft- Indiamen, and two more gone to look out for our Weft-' Indiamen.' * He fays alfo, that there are five 60 Guns Ships build-� ing at Brett.  That one Man of War, (a Black Ship) * call'd the Mercurius, and two Privateers, one of 20 * Guns, Six Pounders; and one of 34 Guns, Twelve ' Pounders, Cruizes about Scilly, and the Land's-End. * And that about three Weeks ago he faw 52 Sail of Mer- * chantmen, bound to Bourdeaux, Nantz and Rochel, with * two Men of War, come to an Anchor near Brett.* The Ships lately taken up for Cape Breten, to carry Troops, Stores, &c. are fallen down to the Nore, and will fail the firft Opportunity. By feveral Veffels arrived at Dover on Thurfday Morn, ing, from Pluming, there is Advice that a great Firing of Bombs and Canson was heard from Nieuport ;  by ti* nlain that that Place is hefieor d hv rhp Fr*�nrh _Thp  I   w     t a- .
