LONDON. ----- Extrad of a private Letter from Amferdam, Sept. 20, N.S. * All the Conversation of our Politicians turns at prefent * on the approaching Election of an Emperor,  which is * fixed for the 13th of this Month. We can no longer ' doubt of its taking Place that Day, and that the Grand ' Duke will be chofen. And we flatter ourfelves here, ' that Affairs Abroad will take a Turn in Favour of the * Common Caufe after the Election, becaufe it is reckoned * that the whole Empire will declare fcr him.   But there * are fome amonglt us, that apprehend Things will not go � on fo faft as is fuppofed, it being very probable (fay they) * that mod of the Circles will ftill rrmain Neuter, as they ' did in the late Emperor's Reign, to the End that they * may not embroil themfelves with the King of Piuffia. * We are at a Lofs to Account for his Pruflian Majelty's * Conduct. We expected that Prince's Troops were going ' to overrun all Saxony, after fo fh.^rp and thundering a * Manilello as he has publiflied : And yet, fir from having * undertaken any Thing, they are ftill on the Frontiers of * that Electorate, and 110 Body can yet tell whether they ' will proceed farther into the Country.   This makes Pco- * pie iuppofe, that the King of Pruflia, has quite another c Project in his Head, and that he perhaps only waits for ' the Iffue of the Election, in order to take his Courfe. ' Some Advices ftill fay, that the Pruflians may probably ' march towards Francfort, in order to prevent the Empe-' ror's Coronation,  if they cannot hinder the Election : * and as the French are coming down the Rhine towards * Mentz, and that the Prince of Conti expects aconfidera- * ble Reinforcement,  many are  of Opinion,  that the * French and Prulliansact in Concert in this Affair. ' Advices from the Coafts of France continue to tell us, ' that great Armaments are making there, as for an Em- * barkation of Troops ; but they obferve at the fame Time, * that this Affair cannot be clearly feen through, 'till after * the taking of Nieuport, which we judge is loft by this ' Time, tho' the Account is not yet come to this City.   \i * is the general Opinion here, that if that Embarkation 1 takes Place, it mult be defigned againft England. Extrail of a Letter from a Gentleman at Edinburgh, to Li* Friend at Neixcaftle, dated Aug. 27. ' There is a Manifefto here, but few Copies of it to be ' met with,  by the Pretender's Son, Charles ;  wherein, * amonglt other Things, there are large Promifes of fecu- * ring All in their Rights and Liberties ; and likewife of ' diffolving the Union, and taking off the Malt Tax. - � There are none of the Clans in Perfon, they fay, with * the Chevalier Charles, but about 2500 of their Men, ex-' cept without their Chiefs; viz. The M'Donalds of Clan-� ronald, the M'Donalds of Keppech, the M'Donalds of * Glengarry, and the M'Donalds of Kinloch Moidart ; to-� gether with the Camerons of Lochyell, and Stewarts of * Appin--Sir Alexander M'Donaid, the principal Man ' of the Clans, has wrote to General Gueft, giving him * the ftrongelt AiTurances, that all his People will remain ' quiet ; which he defixes he may communicate to Sir John * Cope, Commander in Chief of the King's Forces. ' P.S. The Grants and M'Cleods to the Number of 1500, * promife to join General Cope. * A Letter from a Gentleman of Character, now with ' General Cope, fays, his Excellency received a Letter the ' z2dlnltantr from the Laird of Grant, affuring, that he * will in two Days hence join our Army with 1000 of his * People; and M'Intcfh writes, he'll do the fame with * 500 of his Men.   Another Letter fays, we expect our * advanced Parties will talk with thofe of the Enemy once � this Week; and that we mail be bodily with them againft � Tucfday or Wednesday next, in order to cock up the * young Pretender's Beaver, who is now faid to drefs in * the Highland Uniform. ' An Exprefs arriv'd from the Weft on Friday advifing, that the Highlanders do not exceed 2000 Men j and lalt Night a Gentleman, faid to be Son of Rob Roy, came to Town with News from the Highland Hoft. The Laird of Glengarry, who came to General Cope on Wed-nefday laft at Almerie, inform'd, that they were about 2000 Men, and thefe the Riff-Raff of the Highlands. 'Tis talk'd they have got a few Cannon among them, alfo * feveral Tents ; and that their Camp is as long as betwixt * Leith and Edinburgh.' Yefterday the Right Hon. the Lord Mayor, and Aldermen waited on his Majefty at Kenfington, with a Congratulatory Addrefs from the City of London, which his Ma-jelly received very gracioufly ; and he was pleafed to confer the Honour of Knighthood on Henry Marfhal, Efq; Lord Mayor; Samuel Pennant, Efq; one of the prefent Sheriffs j and John Bofworth, Efq, Chamberlain of this City. Yefterday the Lords of the Admiralty appointed Captain John Amhurft to be Commander of the South Sea Caftle Man of War, fitting out at Leverpool. And the fame Day appointed Captain Dent, to be Commander of the Terrible Bomb. Yefterday it was reported that there were Letters from Edinburgh, which gave an Account, that the Rebels had found means to pafs by General Cope, with a confiderable Part of their Body ; but this Report met with very little Credit; and the rather, that it does not feem to anfwer any Purpofe in their Wild Scheme. On Tuefday laft four Dutch Men of War, one of them with a Flag at the Foretop-maft-Head, came into the Downs, from the Weflward. The above Ships are Part of Admiral Martin's Squadron; who was at Plymouth on Sunday laft, ready to fail, waiting only for four Men of War to join him, in their room. His Fleet will then confift of Fifteen Ships of the Line. Yefterday a fine new Ship, of 400 Tons, (taken from the French) now call'd the Duke of Bedford, commanded by Capt. Jobbar, fell down the River, to proceed to the Downs, and join the Ships bound to Cape-Breton. She has on board 20 Thirty-two Pounders, arid 30 Twenty-four Pounders, and a great Quantity of Shot. She is alfo to take in 1000 Barrels of Gunpowder, and other Military Stores. The Carlifte Privateer, Capt. Owens, has fcnt into Dover, a Swedifh Ship, laden with Pitch and Tar, and Deal Boards, which he took going into Havre-de-grace. The Succefs, Brown, from Irvine, for Virginia, is taken on the Coaft of Virginia. On Monday the Races began at Datchet Common near Windfor, when the Gentlemens Purfe of 50 Guineas was won by Mr. Grefwood's Horfe Carelefs, And on Tuefday theLadies Purfe of 50 Guineas was run for by Lord Portmore's Horfe Moreccck, and Mr. Grefwood's Horfe Teazer, and won by the former. On Friday laft a Difpenfation pafs'd the Great-Seal, to enable the Rev. Thomas Billio, L.L.jB. to hold the Rectory of Lutterworth in the County of Leicelter and Diocefe of Lincoln; together with the Rectory of Ravenllon, in the County of Derby and Diocefe or Li:chfield and Coventry. Laft Friday died at his Seat at ChiltonCandover in Hamp-fliire, William Guidott, Efq; aged 80. He applied himfelf from his Youth to the Study of the Law, in which Profeffion, as a Chamber Counfel, he was much reforted to. He was a particular Favourite of the late Duke of Marlborough, who intruded him with his Affairs, which he executed with remarkable Integrity and Honour : In a Word he endear'd himfelf to all. Mankind, as the molt upright Juftice, the mildelt, and moft indulgent Landlord, as a kind and tender Relation, and as companionate to his poor and neceflitous Neighbours. He reprefented the Borough of Andover in feveral fucceflive Parliaments, where he fig-nalized himfelf, by fpeaking on all Occafions againft Venality and Corruption. Thefe Ver'tues recommended him to the ancient and loyal Corporation of Bafingftoke and Andover to fix on him as the moft proper Perlon to execute the Office of Recorder. Yefterday in the Afternoon died at his Houfe in Fleet-ftreet, Mr. Wood, Mailer of PtePs Coffee-houfe. The 25th paft was hang'd at Durham, StephenHaddock for the Murder of Thomas Alder, Gent, of Hilton-Park Houfe, committed the zilt of May laft: He was very forry for his Crime, and died Penitent.

He was found dead upon his Knees.
