Remain his Majefty's Ships Norwich, Adnural Vernon j with the reft jof the Men of War, and Outward-bound Ships, as in my laft. Wind W.byS. Grawjendy Nov. 27. Pafs'd by Charles and Henry, Fowler, from ________ Caxlfham j and Peggy and Betfey, 'Wallis, from Gibraltar. LONDON. All our Letters from the Netherlands confirm the Report, that the French are undertakmg fome Enterprife there diiring the Winter: But the diferent Difpofuions they make, and their continual Motions, render it impof-fible to judge their particular Defign : It has been thought f)roper, however, to reinforce the Garrifon of Bruffels, by ending thither Part of the Troops from Maeftricht, and Jpme other Places. Private Letters from Franckfort pretend, that notwith-ftanding their Triple Contingents, the Circles are no more inclined to break with France, than they are to admit the Imperial Troops into Wincer Quarters amonglt them : So that the Houfe of Auftria have no ReafOn to think they will make her Quarrel the Caufe of the Empire. Tho' fome of their Troops are ah-eady polled along the Rhine, they are but few in Number. Exirad bf a Letter from the Hague, Dec. 3. * Tho'it has been inferred in fome Gazettes, that the " firft Column Of the Rnflians, which are marching to the Affiftance of the King of Poland, arrived on the 13 th " at Miitau in Courland, we have"^a Letter here from that " City, dated Nov. i ^, in which are the following Word?, " Notwithllanding there has been fo much (aid of theAr-" rival of 12,000 Ruffians in this Dutchy, there has not " yet one of them appeared among us, and even the Talk �* of them is over nere ; the Seafon being fii fevere, by. Reafonof the hard Froft, and the Snows that have be-�' gun to fall, that in all Probability that March is fuf-^� pended." 0 They write from Manheim, that the French Army, U whofe Head-Qoarters are at Landau, had received Orders to to hold themfelves in Readinefs to march, and that there 7^ (eems to be a Defign of refloring the Bridge at Hunnin-guen: So that as the Auftrian Army is very much wcaken'd, by the Departure of the Dutch and Hanoverians, and the Detachments made towards Saxony and the Upper Palatinate, there will be no Room for Surprize if fomething be attempted at a Time when it was kaft ex-peflied. j From the Barbadocs Gazette, Extras of a private Letter from Kingtton in Jamaica, dated Augufi zzd, i"^^^. * We are in a great Confternation here,? the Wild ' Negroes having rifen upon Us, and deftroy'd Numbers, � both White and Black.
