' It is no oriousand fufficreritly known, that the Empire !.' hitherto e-xa<S Neutrality. With thisjn-j tention the laudable Circle of Stfafeia polled its-Troops along tha Rhine to the Foot of Philiplbiirghi principally to avoid the ExcefTesof the two Parties at War, and-pre-ferve the Subjects from all Qppreffion. In confequence j they have thought it iifeful and necefTary to contradict | publickly what has been lately reported, namely, that \ Capt. Knobelfdorff, actually commanding "at La;rac, had j| boaffied of his Valour in repulfing the French, when they j! made an Excursion to Stetten the 2$d of January atfj Night.

A MONG the modern Frolicksof this polite Age,thatf of breaking Globular Lamp Glafies is a moft cruel | one, fairing Pleafure in Mifchief, arid injuring the Proprie-j-tors, wiro are Perfons too low in Life to merit the Ill-will* of GeAtlemoii cf Rank and Fortune, as were thofe who-on Fn'day laft about 3 o'Clock:broke between 20 andjo-Lamp-Glafl'es in Pall-Mall, St. James's-freer, &c* wiich occafions a Lofs of Six-Pounds and upwacds, to fe-: vcrai Perfons who furnifh Lamps at Gentiemens and others* Dodrs. Surely, upon the Return of cool Reafon, thefirft? Th3ught that would naturally occur would be to make Rev paration, and to direct the Sufferers where to fend an Ac- � connt of the Number and Value eadh had broke, that iRey'i might be repair'd in Damages; this furely may be reafo-' ably expe&ed, as the'Darnagcin breaking theie Glaffes is' double the Expence fince the late Glafs Act pafs'd into a' Law: So that if this fhould be a reigninn; Diverfion, it; - , too ' will be.fuch a one as will ruin feveral P<srfon?, and will render it impofflble to fix Glafs Lamps in the Streets-of the Liberty of Wejlminfttr, unlefs the Legiflature will affift in laying a Penalty, in order to Perfons from willfully breaking the fame. It may be aflced, why the Watch don't take Care to prevent Perfons from breaking them ? But alas ! what is a Watchman or two againft four or five drawn Swords. Yours PHILO-LUMINIS.
