The Letters from Genoa of the 4th inform as, that the Revolters are weary of attacking the advanced Parties of our Army, and that they think of nothing at prefent but defending themfelves to the laft Extremity within the Walls of-their Capital. For this Pur-pofe they have refolved to take in all that are well-affected in the fame Caufe, with their Wives.and Children. They no longer depend upon the Succour that was to come to them by Sea, and think only of holding out till the Middle of April, by which Time, they {ay, the French will repafs the Varo in a large Body, and the Neapolitans will march to Panaro : Which muft oblige the Imperialifts to divide their Force?, in order to cover at once the Modeneze and the County of Nizza. � Vienna, March 15. Whatever the Foreign Gazettes have faid of Col. Trenck's .".{Fair, as if it was finifhed, and the Sentence publifiVd, we can now allure the Public, that all thefe Reports are prem tur? Cologne, March 23. The Troops that are to compofe the Allied Army in the Low-Countries, have begun to march out of their Quarters ever fince the 20th Inftant. Thofe that were quarter'd in the Ele&orates of Cologne and Treves, and in the Dutchies of Luxemburgh and Ju-liers, are advancing toward* the Maefe, in order to pafs that River between Venloand Liege.

The Englifn Squadron continues cruizing from Villafrancha to Marfeilles, and fome Ships of that Nation are ported before the Port of Genoa. Verona, March 14. Count Matthias-Jofeph de S:hu-lemberg died here laft Night, very mucn regretted. He was b-:.-n in 1668. In 1 702 the King of Poland, Elector of Saxor.y, cr poir.ted him General of his German Troops. He \vr.s ra f^d to the Dignity of a Count of the Empire in 1715, and the r.cx: Year the Republic of Venice daclar'd him Fiel'i-Marfna! General of its Armies. He has left the Count de Oeysnhaufen, Great Huntfrnan of the Electoral': of FiiQ. the Principles of Virtue and true Religion. v-* With Refpeft to fuch Principles it is very certain, that Example has a greater Effeit than Precept i and Hiftory-furnifheth us with an Opportunity to fet before our own Minds, as well as before the: Minds of thofe we haveunder our Care, the Examples of the Worthies that 2xelkad, when we happen not to have an Exajzple among the Living, for infbrcing any Precept we intend to inculcate. This makes the Study of Hifiory more neceflary for the Young People of the preftnt Age, than ever it was in any-former, especially as to thofe Principles that ought to beincak cated with regard to the Publick ; becaufe we have now. exifting fo very few Examples of Steady Virtue and Publick Spirit.--In private Life, and among the Lower Giafif. of People, we may find fome Perfons of Honour, HoaefryV Fidelity and Generofity, whom we may with Confidence recommend as Examples to our Children ; but in Publitk Life, if we recommend any Man as an Example of trut Honour or feady Patriotifm, it is ten to one, but upon the �� next Turn of Affairs, his Example deftroys.the Precept we; defigned to inculcate, and ferves only to make us exclaim, as Brutus did of old, that Virtue is but an empty Dream^ > -a Phantome, that exifts only in the Imagination .'. . Both from the Grecians and Romans we may learn, that an Abhorrence of Vice, and a Love of Virtue, are ftrongly . impreffad upon the tender Minds of Children,, by letting before their Eyes, the Perfons that are, or have been re* markable for either. It is reported of the Grecians, that they ufed to makd their Slaws drunk, and then expofe them to their Children, in order to give the latter an Abhorrence of th&tabomina~ ble Vice.-Happy would it have been for many of out nobU and great Families, had this been the PraQice of their An~ ceforsl-And as to theRomans, Horace has left us uponRe*. coTd, the Method which his Father took to form his Min4 for Virtue.
