By a Courier difparch'd from Dref-den we have received Advice, that the King of Pruffia had . aflembled an Army, in order to enter�the Electorate of Saxony ; that the King, upon receiving this News, had drawn together all the Troops in his Electoral Dominions, and ordered others out of Bohemia ; that as to the Reft, his Mdjefty flatter'd himfelf the Republick would grant him her Affiftance, in cafe of Neceflity. The Grandees of the Kingdom, who were prefent in this Capital, have had feveral AfTemblies on this Occafion : But we are not inform'd, whether they have come to any Refolution. All we know is, the Palatine of Kiovv, Great General of the Crown, has fent Orders for four Regiments of Infantry, and three of Cavalry, which are in Great Poland, to hold themfelves in Readinefs to ^uit their Quarters, upon the the firlt Notice. We mall very foon fee what is the Object of this Order. Hall, Sept. 13. The two Lines of the Prince of Anhalt-Deflau's Army, of which an exact Lilt has been here pub-lifhed, amount to 22 Battalions and 48 Squadrons. His Serene Highnefs received a Courier the Day before Yefterday from the King's Camp in Bohemia, with Orders concerning the lalt Motions of the Army, which will To-morrow qujt the Camp of Diefkau. Pre/den, Sept 13. Our Government has received AfTu-rances from the King of Pruffia, that notwithftanding the Subjects he had of Complaint, his Defign is by no means to interrupt the Commerce, for the Purpofes of which the Polls and Carriages might pafs and repafs as ufual, without the leaft Difturbance from the Pruffians. A Body of 5 or 6000 Pruffians, under the Command of General Gefler, has entered Lamben, a Frontier of Upper Lufatia, and raifed there confiderable Quantities of Forage, with Promife however of Payment : Another Body of about 1000 advanced near Zittau ; but perceiving the Burghers in a State of Defence, thought proper to retire, after having broke their Bridge. An Exprefs has this Duy brought Word, that both thefe Detachments are quite drawn off, and that the King of Pruflia's Army in Bohemia has alfo decamped, taking the Road of Silefia, whither Prince Charles of Lorrain is pursuing it. M. de Saul, Privy-Council, who returned hither from Vienna fome Days ago, is gone back, without our knowing the Motive.

There is alfo a Talk of a Body of 12,000 Swede5, "which his Majefty is to take into his Pay, in order to garrifon thofe Fortreffes from which he has drawn off his own Troops. Yefterday we received Advice, that Major-General de Poblentz, who commanded a Detachment of Pruffians over-againft Croffen, and fecures us a free Communication with Silefia by' that River, which the Saxons had it in their Power to interrupt while they kept Poffeffion of it. Ratisbon, Sept. 13. Much has been faid here concerning the March of a Body of Bavarians, in order to enter into the Pay of Great-Britain; Bat we now learn, that this Report was owing only to the "Motions of two Regiments, which were going to change their Quarters. The laft Letters from Munich however confirm, that the Elector is dif-' pdfedftr engage a Body of his Troops in the Service of the Allies, but that his Highnefs would ftill ftipulate certain Conditions, which have not yet been definitively agreed on with the Hanoverians Miniilers;  So that it will not be till after the Regulation of thofe Matters, that any fuch March can take Place. Hanover, Sept. 11. It. is faid here, that England will pay three Parts of the Subfidies granted to the Elector of Bavaria, and the States General the 4th, and that this Prince will immediately furnifh a Body of 12,000 Men. a Courier paft by here laft Night, difpatch'd by Lord Hyndford from Peterfburg, who delivered a Packet to our Regency.

Franckfort, Sept. 16. Nothing but Rejoicings have appeared fince the 13th, and in all Probability they will continue till the Coronation, which cannot be far diitant, tho' it is not yet fixed.
