A? fsor. a? the Campaign in the Netherlands was n-ni:Vu, France thought fit once mote to feci the Pu ic of the A lacs, in relation to the fetting en Foot Conference- for a Treaty of Peace by ti.e   all the former Preliminaries, * except the "91h Article, relating to the Evacuation of ' Spain ; wh'Cn done, the Allies would fend Paffes Lr his ' 'Mini/Jers to come and treat cf an Equivalent for thai e Article.' To which the French Court, after fome Hefi-tatron, having fen; 1 Ta'iifaclory Anfwer, the States-General with the Content cf the Imperial and Britiin Plenipofln-liaries, granted i'affes for the Marfhal d' L'xeiles, and the Abbot de Po'ignac, to come to Gertruydenburgh, the Place appointed fir the Confederates, as y.e!l as their Residence ; and t. e Sieur Buys ana VandeculTen, two of the States Deputies, were nominated on the Part cf the Allies. Thcfe Conferences held fr~m the rift cf March, to the 13th of July, without any other Propofab on the Part of France, than a Partition of the Spanifh Monarchy feveral Ways t In the firft Place, that King Philip fhould have Nanles and Stcdy, or the Kingd .in of Arragon, or at leaft Sici!-', Sircmia, and the Sp-inift Garrifor.s or, the Coaft of Ttfcanv : In the fecor.d, that the King their Mafur wasfo iincerely inalm'd to Peace, that in order to procure it, he would for his Grsndfon be contented with Sici'Lv End fcrdmii. exclufivs cf i,i$ Demands en the Coatis of Tufcsr.y. After this manner the Negociati n: were (can cut ; which, the Dutch Deputtc; ioudiy aiTimPd. ' were kept up for no ether End bv the French Court, than ' to er-courage their Subjects the more patiently to beur ' the "Burthen of the V\ ar, telling the Plenipotentianef, ' they found themitives obliged to break off all farther ' Conferences with them, fur removing ail Gccaiions of < jeaioufies among themfelve?.' Hereupon the French Minitlrrs offer'd, ' That his moff � Christian Majrfty mould uie ah pofFibie Means to perfoade ' his Grandkhn to confent to the above rr.eution'd Parti-' cior.' They added, ' That this requir'd Time; but if ' that Prince wen:Id not acquiefce in tiv; Propofal, the " King th eir.'vl: iter, tho' ne could not confent ro declare War 6 againu hi; Grandfon, as fpecified in the 3711.

In Anfwer to which, it was pereniptor.lv declared by the Confederates, ' That a Propofa! of furnifhing a Sum of 6 Money for the Charges of the War, to oblige King ' Philip to quit the Monarchy of Spam, and content him-5 felf with ijsrdir.td and Stcilv, if he would not do it vo-' luntanly. was not acceptable to the Allies upon feveral � Accounts : A.-, t ft, bfcaufe this would produce but a (e-'� parate, and not a genera! Peace, which was the Knd the ' Allies propos'd to themlelres. zdlv, Phat the A.lis; in-'� fitted to hotre Spain and the Indies ecltver'd up, accord-' ing to theTencr of tne Preliminaries, sdly, That this -| ' Foundation being Isid and agreed upon, tne Allies would ' confent to continue the Conferences on other ArticK-s. Then the Frehci;, not being impo^r'd to give a fatis-factory Reply to in is tail Demand, and having no Room to af< another Conference, wrote a Letter to the ?rand Penfionary, wherein they lard before him, that the Propo-kls new,!y inver-.tsd, which the Deputies made in the lait Conference, were unjuft, and impoflible to be executed, and complain'd of the ill Treatment they had received, in Contempt of their Characler; of the injurious, fahe and fcandalouj Libels, which had been fuffer'd to be printed and difperfed during their Stay at Gertruydenburgh 1 which was a fort of Prifon to them) to inflame the Mnds of thole whom they wereendeavouring to reconcile ; and of all the Letters, which they either receiv'd  or writ, having been open'd, in Breach of the Publick Faith. This was follow'd by a Resolution in the AffembV of the States, which declar'd, '.That the Enemy had depar-' ted from the Foundation on which the Negociations had ' been begun, and ftudy'd Pretences to evade the Exe-' cution of the capital Point. The Refloration of Spain ' and the Indies: And, in fhort, that France had no ' other View, than tofow and create Jeaioufies among the ' - Hies.' As to the Complaint of the Plenipotcnt aries, relat'ng to their Perfons, the pretended Contempt of their Character, the publication of abufive Libels, the opening of their Letters, the hindering the making any Vifits to them, and reprefentipg thn'r Lodging, as if they had been in a kind of Prifon; their High ivlightlnefies obferved, and aflerted : ' That purfuant to Agreement, the faid ' Plenipotentiaries Came without Character to treat incog-' nito ; for which Reafon no Ceremonial was obferv'd on ' either Side ; but that ail manner of Confrderations was ' had for their Birth, Quality, and Merit: That Libels ' were fevereiy fo; bidden in Holland, and the Authors and ' Printers liable to Pun fhment : That none of the many ' Couriers the French Plenipotentiaries had receiv'd, or ' difpatch'd, had been flop'd, nor were any of their Let-' ten-, fen; by the ordinary Poll, intercepted : That no ' Perfon was ever hindered from going to them, nor was ' any Order given to take Notice who vifited them : Eat ' as 11. all frontier Towns, 'tis the Cuilom that no one ' enter, un'efs he declared his Name and Qualtfy, both at ' the Gate, and to the Governor, it ought not to be ' thougt.t itrange, nor ought Exceptions to be taken, if ' this Cuitom was not di.continued during the .Stay of the ' French Mmillers at Gertruydenburgh ; zt.i in the lait ' Place, that they couTd not call the Town they pitch'd ' upon, and preferPd to Antwerp, a large and noble City, ' a Pnfcn.' After this, on the 24th of July, trie French Miniilers fct forwa-d in their Return Home from Gertruydenburgh; the French Court beginnmg to talk of Peace with Indifference, on Account of tne Commotions in England, occafioned by Dr. Sacheverei's Tryal, and the Change of the Ministry, which thereupon enfu'd. In the mean Time, while the Cot.ferences abovemen-tioned were actually upon the Anvil, the Duke of Marlborough and Prince Eugene made a ^onfidcrable Progrefs in Flanders, where they enter'd the French Lines,, and took the uroog and important Towns of Doway, Rethune, St. Venant, and Aire, by which they flreighten'd. the Enemy exceedingly for V/;nter Quarters, and made their Approaches much nearer to Old F.ance. By a Letter from Berlin v/e are informed that a P'ao for a General Peace is drawn up at that Court, and in a manner approved of by one of the moil interesting Parties,- which is defigned in a very fhort Time to be laiJ before the Minifters affembling at Breda. To-morrow all the Genera! Officer? xv'-U fet out for Harwich, in order to embark for Holland, and join the Army in Flanders. ExtraJI of a private Letter from the Hague, Teh. 14. ' When the Court of Verfahles firftfent M. de Puyfieux ' to Breda; her Intentions, in all Probability, was not to ' forward the good Work of a Pacification, but only, un-  der that Pretence, to amufe the Allies,  make them ' flacken cheir Preparations, and then more eff.-ftually to ' compleat h<*r Work in the next Campaign.
