   General Advertiser (Newspaper) - January 12, 1746, London, Middlesex                                Nrj m b, .g-8i r D^/v January 10. EMA1N in the Downs his Majefty V Ship the Greyhound ; the 'Scorpion Sloop,  and   Revenge Privateers.   Wind S.W. The St.Ives,.Grot\ from Am-Jlerdam, is arrived at Guern-zey. Since our laft arrived the Msils from Holland. Genoa, Dec. 24. After the Retreat of the Auftrians from this City and San Pietro d'Arena, our firft Care was to fend Succours to Savona. For this Purpofc on the 17th in the Evening, four Gallies and an Armed Bark were fcnt out in order to efcort feveral Tranfportswith Troops on board to Albuzuola. But fcarce were they embarked before an Englifh Squadron was feen, which obliged the Gallies to return into Port at Two in the Morning. As the Bark ftaid out at Sea, the next Morning at Break of Day, theSar-dinian Gallies were perceived in Chace of her ; but fhe was happily difengaged by our Gallies, which brought her into Fort. We have fince received tie News of the Surrender of Savona on the 18th. Caie has been taken ail along to inform the French Generals in Provence of whatever palled here ; and while we wait for their taking neceffaryMeafures to fupport u�, the Guards have been doubled in all the Places whete we have Auftrian Prisoners, who, on the whole, amount to about 4000, including 210 Officers. A-sthe Englifh Squadron appear'd again before Savona on the 2 iff, we fuppofe it was in order to take aboard Part of the heavy Artillery and Munitions found in that Place,- and tranfport them to General Brown in Provence. At prefent we are very qukt her,' ; but the Populace have ftill their General-Quarters at the Jefuit-Colkge in the Street of Balhri, from whence all the Orders are iffiied. Sixty Companies of 50 Men each, have been appointed for the Guard of the City, and the Inhabitants of Bifagno and Polfevera are always in Readinefs to come to their AfiUtance. The Foreign Merchant; and principal Citizens continue to retire out of the City, in order to take Shelter elfewhere. Placentia, Dec. zS. According to the Advices received here, General Brown feems at prefent to be employ'd only in eftablifhing Quarters of Cantonment for his Troops, in ibat Part of Pre-vence whereof he is already Matter ; but this will net hinder the Siege of Antibes from going on, as foon as the heavy Artillery can arrive before that Place. It is faid, that M. Belleifle w.l! alio content himfelf with intrenching himfelf in his prefent Pofition, in order to cover Toulon, Aix and Mariei'les, and wait for the Reinforcements expected from the Low-Countries. It is not likely, however, that Things fhould remain long quiet about Genoa, fince the Auftrians are making the necefTary Preparations to attack the P^evoUers^by three or four different Ways. ^ Chamhcrry, Jan. 3. The 29th pafl a Courier herefrom the Infant Don Philip in Provence, with Orders for the Count de Sada to march the greateft Part of the Swifs Troops in Spanifh Pay as-foon as poffible. This Detachment will amount, to above 3000 Men, who are to be on the 6th Inftant' at Chaparillan, where the ultimate Orders will be ready, and in all Probability fend them to Provence. Geneva, Jan. 7, The Letters received this Day from Savoy inform us of the March of the Swifs Troops towards-Pravence, add, that there had been a prodigious Defertion ' of them upon the Road, aod that the Count de Sada had' been obliged to take Meafurcs to prevent the Increafe of this Difadvantage. Paris, Jan. 9. The King, unwilling to flacken the Preparations for the enfuing Campaign, while the Succefs of tht approaching Negociations at Breda are yet unforefeen, has lately figned feveral new Military Ordonnances. One of them is for the railing of 4,928 Militia-fin the conquer'd Parts of Brabant, f-landers and Hairiatilt. The other Battalions of Militia are alfo to be encreafed from 650 to< 694 Men each. The Marquis de Pallavicini, Envoy-Extraordinary from the Republics of Genoa, has been invited to fome Conference* at Verfailles upon the Affairs of that Republick. The Marquis de Balbt, on: of the Nobility of the fame State, is here : but we cannot tell upon wh t Occafion. AW that we certainly know is, t')at the Powers in Alliince with the Genoefe are going to unite thur Eii'.irts to help them out of their preient terrible Situation. The Prince of.Ardora, AmbafTaJor from the King cf the Two Sici-ijes, h.j.s alio had a Conference upon tin. Subject at Ver- failles, wherein he communicated .the Advices he had re- 1 ceived from Naples,, qoncerrjjifrg the Troops' of his Sicilian Majefty, who have Orders to be ready to marchpand are to be'reinforced to the Number of 25^000 Men. � i.� . I" - t . Two Couriers havearrived within thefethree Da'ys frorm M. Belleifle, and, we are told, that the News they have' brought is very favourable.   A Minifter of State declared pubiickly two Days ago, that the Enerffy were actually retreating.   We are very well fatisfied with Refpect to the Court of Madiid, fince wc have heard of the Promotion of Don Jofeph de' Carvaljar y Lancafire, whom we look upon si a Min fincrrely attach'd to the genefafTnterelt of the Houfe of Bourbon. Brvjfels, Jan. 12. Notwithstanding the extreme Cold 1 and Froif, the Military Difpofitions ftem to increaie in this Country, and What is more remarkable, inoft of fhe Gar-rifbns have received Order to be in Readinefs to march at the firft Notice. It is alfo thought worthy of Notice, that the Count d'Effrces, after having been at Mechlin, di(-patch'd a Courier to Paris for i\L Saxe. We have been long uncertain concerning the Time of that General's Return, but are now affured, it will be on the 20.h or 22d 1 nftant. From the London Gazette. Villa Pranca Har-iow, Dec. 13, O. S. The Siege of Antibes is undertaken, and the Carcaf= Bomb is placed in Gourjan Bay, from whence they have fifed Shells with good Succefs, the Town having been frequently fet on Fire in feveral Parts; arid by the Advice we receiw from the Army, it is exptfted that the Town and Caflle will foon be obliged to furrender. Stockholm, Dec. 23, O.S. His Swedifh Majefty has appointed the following Perfons to be Senators of the Kingdom of Sweden, viz. Colonel Palmeftierna, Count Ekebald, Major General Fabian Wrede, M. Andrews Hopken, one of the Secretaries of the Chancery,- Governor Sfiernftedt, and Governor Taube. As there was no Precedent of any one having been raifed from fo low a Place as Secretary of the Chancery, to the Rank of a Senator, his Swedifh Majefty was prevailed on to fend M. Hopkens a Patent of Marfhil of his Court, to qualify Kirn to be propofed as a Candidate for that Poll, which is the higheft a Subject can rife to in this Nation. On Wednefday kit Count Finkenftein, the King of Pruffia's Envoy Extraordinary at this Comt, had his Audience of Leave of .his Swedrih Majefty , and the next Day Baron Roth, who fuccgeds him in the fapi'e Character,- had his firft Audierjce, in which he piefenred his Credentials to his Swedifh Majefty.

On the 18th Jnftant at Noon, the Ge-. noefc Governor of Savona offered to capitulate, and-im-mediately conferited to deliver up the Place,  and, the -Garrifon as Prifonersof War.   Upon which Articles were . drawn up, and frgned by both Parties, and the Piedmon-tefe Grenadiers were pat in Poffcffion of one tff the Gates. Colonel Butler ij arrived here, having been diTpatched from the Bochetta by Marquis Botta to .his Court, in order to concert Meafures for fecoving of Genoa. Nice, Dec. 28. By the laft Letters from General Brown, the French had abandoned Digne ; ana General Odonnel had takeri, the Caftle of Ague, and one of lefs Note; in both which he raind about 20 Pieces of Cannon. The French Army continue to retire towards Toulon. The Battalions that drop in from Flanders to Marfhal Belleifle's Army, are generally very weak, and in a bad Condition, from what they have fuffered in fo long a March, fhe King of Sardinia is perfectly recovered, and it Hs hoped will be able tb fet out"for Turin, about the 7th of next Month. By the Surrender of Savona, the Genoefe are obliged to employ their whole Force 10 keep M. Bbtta on the other Side of the Bochetta.
