Extracl of a private Letter from Amfterdam, dated September 17, N S. * Some of our Politicians would fain perfuadeus to look ' upon the Election of the Grand Duke, to be King of the 1 Romans and Emperor, as the Ep^cna of a more bloody ' War than that we have hitherto fecn. They fay, a Re-' port�-a? indeed fpread, for fame Days pair, that the King " ' of Pruffia would accommodate Matter* with the Queen * Hungary, and that his Pruffhn Maji-fty was inclined to ' give his Vore for the Grand Duke ; but the rallity of ' mi,- Report now appears, fince it is certain, nocwith-� Handing what had been laid in elm Cologne Gazette, that ' the Fi'ft Pruffia:i AmbafTador never came to francfcn, ' and that the Second lef: it the Evening before the Elec 1 '.ion, as did alfo Count de Schaefberg, the FirU Palatine ' Minifter ; fo that there was net any Body to reprefent 1 either of thole two Princes. * ' They do not pretend however to affirm, that there is * not a Negociation upon the Carpet to engage the King ' of Prufiia to an Accommodation ; tho' to this Day we have no real Foundation for fuch an Opinion, fince it is chiefly conjrftured upon the Inaclion in Bohemia : It is � natural to think th;s Monarch, notwithstanding his Ma-� nifeftos and Proteitations, which breathe nothing but � Vengeance, Fire, and Blood, has more Wifdom than to ' play the Part of Orlando'Furiofo,.and take upon him to ftruggle alone againft the whole Germannick Body, un- der the Direction of the Houfe of Auftria, which would * infallibly crufh him in the End. � But even if the King of Pruffia mould make his Peace, ' after all the Steps he has taken, what couid refult from � hence but a new Scene of Operations ? The Queen, up- * on the FJevation of her illuftrious Confort to the Impe-' rial Dignity, might infift more than ever upon the Cef-' fions fhe had been oblig'd to make to his Pruffian Ma-' jefty. This Equivalent fhe would be apt to look for in � Lorraine or Alface, and upon ihefe Provinces her Armies � would fill, while the Contingents of the Circles kept at * Bay the French Army on the Rhine, and prevented its croffing that River. Some affirm, that Part, at Jeait, of * this Project will be put [n Execution immediately after * � the Coronation, fuppefing, at the fame time, the Ac- � commodating with the King of Pruffia is true. '. � On the other Hand, fhould his Pruffian Majefty per- [ ' fnt in the Refoiution not to acknowledge tne Grand 5 4 Duke, the Enmity between the two Houfes would be- ; ' come irreconcilable, of which France would not fail to 4 make her Advantage.' Camp of filvverden, Sept. 16, N.S. This Army conti-cues in the fame Situation ; as well as that of the Enemy. An Officer arrived here this Day from the King of the Romans, to notify his Election to his Royal Highnefs the Duke of Cumberland.
