   General Advertiser (Newspaper) - September 4, 1845, London, Middlesex                                The General Advertifer. Komi. 3371, WEDNESDAY,   September 4,   1745. T)eaU September 2. [AIL'D Yefterday after Poft the Prince Edward. Remain his Ma-jefty's Ship Royal George, Admiral Vernon, and the Men of War formerly mention'd. Came down this Morning his Majefty's Ship Succefs ; the Sea Nymph, More-croft; Unity, Perry; Spencer, Sadler ; Friend's Glory, Millar ; Fell, Ormfby ; Ridley, Jackfon j Catherine, Brain ; Anne, Moodie; Ruby, Shirley ; Ra-chael, Millar; and Fanny, Hili, for Gibraltar and Mahone; and Lyon, Mailers, for Kinfale. This Morning his Ma-jefty'sShip Folkftone failed on a Cruize.   Wind E.byN. Grave/end, Sept. z. PafVd by Robert and Mark, Lee, from Campvere; Juftice, Johnfon, from Norway ; Lady Elizabeth, Bredamus; and Shippon, Norris, from Amftcr-dam. LONDON. Extrafl of a Letter from Amferdam, Auguft 7, N.S. * A private Letter handed about here, fays, that his mod ' Chriflian Majefty leaves Flanders, becaufe it has been re-' fo.'ved to fend a considerable Body of Troops to the Rhine, * on Occafion of the approaching Election of an Emperor. ' If this be done to prevenc that Election, it is highly pro- * bable that thofe Troops will arrive on the Rhine too late ; * fines all our Advices from Francfort fay, that the Election * is nearer at Hand than has been imagined, It is true in-' d?ed, that we have often been lold the fame Story ; but * after all, it is now very likely that the Grand Duke will ' be eletted before the End of this Month. * The Brandenbourg and Palatine Minifters aililt now at � the Conferences for the Eiedtion ; but we are told they do 4 fo only in order to throw Rubs in the Way of the other * Miniiiers, and prolong the Bulinefs. * Holtilities againft Saxony have been begun by the Pruf- * fians, but hitherto there is nothing confrderable in them. ' It is certain, however, that the Pruflians will not Hop * there ; fo that we expect very foon, the News of fome ' Ailion of Confequence, the Succefs of which mult one * Way or another, bring this new War towards a Period. * It is greatly to be feared that the fine Country of Saxony * will be ruined by the numerous Armies that are coming * into it; for it is faid that the Pruffian Army in Bohemia, 1 is going to march into Lufatia ; in which Cafe it will, no ' doubt, be followed by Prince Charles of Lorrain's ' Army. Letters from Lifle of the 5th Infant, N.S. advife, that the French King arrvied there that Day from Ceurtray, and that he was to fet out the 6th for Versailles. Extracl of a Letterfrom Saluthorn, Augufi 30, N.S. ' M. Barbarie de St. Conceit, Embaffador from the mod ' Chnitian King, having invited the Catholick Cantons to ' fend their Deputies hither, in order to receive the Fenfions ' alTigned them by his Majefty, thofe Deputies accordingly ' repaired to this City, and the Embaffador'sSecretary broke * the Ice to them upon fome Conditions of a very delicate * Nature, the Contents of which we arc not indeed ac-' quainted with ; but we hear the Deputies of Lucern, Uri, � Fribourg, and this Canton, were fo (hocked at the Pro-' pofals, that they withdrew without touching any of the � French Gold. Hague, Sept. 10, N.S. By this Day's Letters from the Army wc hear, that the French have marched off, and re-paffed the Dender. The firft Divifion of the Heflian Troop?, that are marching to the Army in Brabant, con-iifling of three Battalions of 800 Men each, arrived at Bockhclt on the 8th Inflant, and is to be at Arnheim on Monday next, feven Days fooner than expected ; and a Dutch CommifTary is order'd to be at Grave on the t 3 ch. Inlknt, to conduft them through the Territory of the Generality. The two other Divifions are following with all Speed. The Imperial Election at Franckfort is certainly fixed for Monday next the 13th Inftant. Newport is faid to have furrender'd on the 5th Inflant. According to the laft Letters from Bohemia, the Pruffian Army has certainly changed it$ Camp, and it is thought that they defigned to return into Silefia by the County of G!atz, feveral Detachments having taken the Lead for that Purpoie. The King's Head Quarters are at Samonitz, from whence his Pruffian Majefty dated his Letters of the ziiih paft. Later from an Officer of the Engllfh Forces, in the Camp near Bruffels, to hit Father. IReceived Yours, iec.   There is a Talk here of fome Regiments going to England ; which if the Pretender's Party fhould gain any Head, may poffibly, at this Time of Year, be a fatiguing Duty ; but be it what it will, I fhall elteem it as nothing, fince it is to quell a Sett of People, wbofe Defigns are only to ruin and enflave their Country. We h ar that the Officers of Fitz James's Horfe, who are ch;efl/ Jrifh or Scotch, behaved with great Infolence to our Troops belonging to the Garrifon of Oftend, whilft they were conducting them to Mons, according to the Capitulation.   It was expected Oftend would have held out longer; bat the French pufh'd the Siege with the greateft Vigour, and fpar'd neither Men, nor any Thing that might contribute to make themfelves Matters of the Place : They flung in fuch a Quantity of Bombs, that they fay it's almoft re-due'd to a Heap of Rubbifh: They made two Attacks on the covered Way, and were repulfed with great Lofs ; but crowding on frefh Troops, and preparing lor a third, the Governor Count Chancier, perceiving they were determm'd to have the Place, coft what it would, furrender'd by Capitulation ; partly en his own Terms, thinking it rather more advifeable, than by holding out a few Days longer, to fuffcr the Garriton to fall into the Enemies Hands 1 How- ever, it has coft the French upwards of 3000 Men, whilll our Lofs is very inconfiderable, being not many more than 100 Men, and two or three Officers.   We are-encamp'd on the Banks of the Canal of Bruffels.    Our Intrenchments have been finilh'd fome Time.   We are under no Appre-henfion of their attacking us, but as we extend about thirteen Miles in Length, and have feveral important- Pofts to defend, the Duty is a little fevere, with both Officers and Soldiers ; but the Alacrity, indefatigable Induftry and Application of his Royal Highnefs, would animate the molt languid Courage, and caufe even the mod feeble to exert themfelves in Execution of their Duty.   The French have been our Neighbours fome Time, but they gave us not the leaft Alarm 'till the 23d of Auguft, when, they attempted to take one of our Out-pofts on the other Sideof the Canal: It was only defended by between 2 or 300 Men ; yet they brought againft it about 16000 Men, with 20 Pieces of Cannon : The Duke put himfelf at the Head of about 4000 Men near at Hand, and with fix Pieces of Cannon march'd againft them, having given Orders for more Troops to follow him in cafe of Neceflity ; but on his Approach they immediately retired.  By fo ftrong a Detachment, and fo much Artillery, one would imagine they had fomething more in View, than only to take this Poft, and the rather, as a great Body of their Cavalry, remain'd the whole Time in Readinefs to fullain them.    But be it as it will,  it is moft certain they were difappointed, and even wanted Refolution to go on with the Enterprize they had begun. Their King left their Camp the firft of September, according to the Report of Deferters, who come daily over to us: The Stand we now make againft them, prevents Bruffels, Antwerp, &c. from falling into their Hands. Neither do I think, confidering the Superiority of their Forces, they have made fuch mighty Conqueits fince the taking of Tournay. Oudenard, Ghent, and Bruges, are Places of no Strength; DeHdermond was in na Condition to make Refinance, and even Oitend was far from being in a proper State of Defence. Whoever are Mailers of the Field, may eafily take thefe, or llronger Towns, if they will be at the Expenceof bringing a large battering Train againft them. It was by the Force of their Artillery, rather than the Refolution of their Men, that they made thefe Conquefts lo eafy. My Complements to all Friends, who am, &c. Camp at Vilvorde, Sunday Night, Sept. j, 1745, N.S. P.S. It is faid, that the French are cutting three Roads in order to attack us; but if they are about any fuch Work, its look'd upon as only a Feint. To the King's moft Excellent Majefty. The humble Addrcfs of the Lord Lieutenant, Bifhop of the Diocefe, High Sheriff, the Grand Jury, Jufticcs of the Peace, and other Gentlemen and Clergy of the County of Worcelter, met at the General Aflize holden for the faid County the 19th Day of Auguft, 1745. WE the Lord Lieutenant, Bifhop of the Diccefe, High Sheriff, the Grand Jury, Juftices of the Peace and other Gentlemen and Clergy of the laid County of Worcelter, being jultly filled with the highelt Indignation at the daring Attempt of France, to load this Free and Protectant Country with that fevereft Evil, a Popifh Pretender, as the fitteft Tool for the perfidious Ambition of our moft inveterate aad moft dangerous Enemy, who is defirous, by this Means, at once to deprive us and our Polterity of our Commerce, our Liberties and cur Religion, could not fa-tisfy our Minds after receiving fuch Intelligence, without embracing the firft Opportunity of alluring your Majefty of our utmolt Zeal and Refolution in Support of your Ma-jelly's Government, on which, under Providence, depends the Prefervation of every Thing that is valuable to Englifh-men and Proteftants. Yefterday being the firft Court of Aldermen held fince his Majefty's Arrival, the following Motion was agreed to by that Court.- ' To congratulate his Majefty, by a ' Speech from their Recorder, on his fafe Return to his * Britifli Dominions ; and the Succefs of his Forces in ' America, in the Conqueft of the Iflands and Forts of * Cape Breton ; with an entire Confidence on his Royal ' Goodnefs to fecure to this Nation the perpetual Enjoy-� ment of fuch an invaluable Acquifition ; and to allure ' his Majefty of their Zeal and Readinefs to oppofe his E-' nemies, and every Attempt againft the Rights of his ' Crown and our prefent happy Conftitution'.-And accordingly the Sheriffs having been fent to know his Majefty's Pleafure when he would be waited on ; he was plealed to appoint this Day at One o'CIock ; at which Time the Lord-Mayor, Aldermen, and Sheriffs, are to go in Procef-fion to Kenfington for thatPurpofe. This Day the principal Merchants of this City have ap -pointed to meet at the Crown Tavern behind the Royal-Exchange, in order to draw up an Addrefs to his Majefty, to congratulate him on his fafe Return, &c. Advices from tne Hague, dated Sept. it, fay, that the Abbe de la Ville, in a Conference held that Morning with fome of the Regency, had declared, in the Name of the King his Mafter, that he was more willing than ever to liften to Terms of Accommodation on reafonable Overtures, which he was alfo defirous to leave to their High Mighti-ne/Tes, together with the Place of Congrefs, which he would have of their naming. All the laft Letters from Paris arc full of the Conflerna-tion which all Ranks of People are ftruck, at the News of the Captures made by theEnglilh in the Eaft-Indies, which they confefs amount to upwards of Fifty Millions of their Money, or Two Millions and upwards of ours, which has made fuch an Impreflion on their Actions that they are already funk to 1000, and are daily falling. Yefterday a Man of War of 20 Guns was launch'd at Limehoufe, which is to row with 60 Oars, and built upon a new Model. The Story publifhed Yefterday concerning the taking of Captain Talbot's Prizes, &c. by the French, could not have the leaft Foundation, all ihe Letters from Ireland having given Accounts of their being in Kinfale. Yefterday was married at Walthamftow in Eflex, _- Richards, Bfq; to Mifs Cotton, a near Relation to Sir Robert Salilbury Cotton, Bart, a fine young Lady, with a Fortune of 8000 1. On Monday laft died, at his Lodgings in KentifhTown, Mr. Woodhall, aged o^Years, formerly an eminent Brewer at Ratcliff-crofs, reputed worth 1000 ha Year. Laft Friday died at Chefter, on his Journey to Dublin, Mr. Rofe Farmer, a Gentleman poffcfs'd of a confiderable Eftate in Chefhire, and a very large Dealer in Cheefe for the Kingdom of Ireland. Yefterday Elizabeth Newbery, Mary Hazelby, and Sarah Daniel, otherwife Jaw-Set Sail, were committed to Newgate by Sir Thomas De Veil, for afiaulting Mrs. Elizabeth Lloyd laft Monday Night at 11 o'U-ck in Hol-born, and felonioufly and forcibly taking from her a Pairof Gold Ear Rings her Property.
