It is given out, that a new Difference had well nigh happen'd between the Courts of Vienna and Berlin, occafion"d by an Inroad made by a Body of Infurgent?, who had their Winter Quarters upon the Frontiers of S.lefia, into that Province, where they committed great Exceffes ; Means have been found, how-c?.r' l? prevent any ill Conferences from this Affair, wn�ch is chfeflv made nn an/L the Pruffian Trrtnn* all LONDON. It is faid that the Government have made fome extraordinary Difcoveries of an Intention of the Court of fiance, by the Help of fome Foreign Defperadoes, to keep up the prefent Rebellion; and have taken fuch Precautions as nraft render the Scheme abortive. Yefterday it was rumour'd, that a Squadron of Men of War, was failed from Brpfl.

The following is a Copy of a kind of Manifefto, or Declaration of War, of a Angular Nature. Letter from Ktppoch and Locheil ft Mr. Stewart of Inner' naieil, dated Gltniurt, March to, 1746. SIX, * Yeflernight we received a Letter from Clunie, giving ' an Account of the Sttccefs of the Party fent by his R- ' H--, under the Command of Lord George Murray, ' to Athol; a Copy of which Letter we thought proper ' to fend you inclofedj and as you happen, for th^ prefent, < to lye contiguous to the Campbells, 'tis our fpecial De- < fue, that you inftantly communicate to Airds the Sheriff, c and other leading Men among them, our Sentiments _ � (which, God willing, we are determined to execute) * c by tranfmitting this our Letter, and the inclofed Copy, to any moft convenient to you. * It is.opr Opinion, that of all Men in Scotland, the ' Campbells had the leaft Reafbn of any to engage in the ' prefent fWar againft his R-. H *s Intereft, cbn- * fiderlng they Jiave always appeared in Oppofition to the * R--I Family fince theReign of James VI. and have ' been guilty of fo many Acls of Rebellion and Barbarity � during that Time, that no injured P-ce but would en-� deavoMir to refeht it, When God was once pleaKd to put �TtheTowerhi Ws Hatids. Yet his preterit M--y, and ' his R-H - the P --co R--ti were gra- * cioufly pleafed, by their refpeaivfr Declarations, to � forgive all paft Mifcarriages to the moft virulent and in-1 veterate Enemy, and even bury them in Oblivion, pro-� vided they returned to their Allegiance ; and, tho' they < fhould not appear perfonilly in Arms in Support of the ' R-*-1 Cauie, yet their ftanding Neuter would entitle � them to the good Graces cF their injurM Sovereign. < But, infpightof all the Lenity and Clemency, that a � P--ce could fhew or Promife, theCampbells have openly * appeared, with their wonted Zeal for Rebellion and � UfWrjatton, in a moft effldousMaftrier. Nor could we � ever form a Thought to ourfelves, that any Menr-en- < dowed with Reafbn or Common Senfe, would life their � Fdlow-Creatureswith fitch Inhumahhy and Batbatky as � they do; and of which we've'daily Proofs, by^ their * brfrning of Hbules) ftripping of Women and Children, ' and expofirig them to the open Fields and Severity of the � Weather, burning of Corn, houghiag of Cattle, and � killing of Horfeis: Tc� enumerate the Whole would be < too tedious at this- Time. They mint naturally reflcd, will -advantage-oufly diftinguifh this Seffion, in the Journals of Parliament ; and the concurrent Zeal, and attive Loyalty, of all his Ma-jefty's Proteftant Subjecls, of all L^wpiwha'tions throughout tbi| Kingdom, prove at once how fenfible and how de-lerving, they are of his Care and Protection. Even thofe deluded People, who fcarcely acknowledge his Government, feem by their Conduct, tacitly to have confefied the Advantages they enjoy under it. At my Return1 to hisfcMajefty's Prefence, I fhall not fail, moft faith* fully to report thefe Truths, iincethe moft faithful, will be at the fame time, the moi favourable Reprefcntation. The Rebellion which rather difturb'd* than endanger'd the King's Government, has besn defeated, tho' not yet totally fupprefs'd ; but as thofe flagitious Parricides, who were abandon'd enough to avow,' and defperate enough to engage in, the Cahfe of Popery and Tyranny, have already been repuls'd and purfued by the Valour and Activity, of his Royal Highnefs the Duke, there is the ftrongelt Reafon to believe that he will foon compleat the Work which he has fo glprioufly begun, andieftor* the Tranquility of the Kingdom. This Attempt therefore, te fhake his Majefty's Throne, will ferve to eftablifh it the more firmly; fince all Europe muft now know the unanimous Zeal and Affection of his Subjects, for the Defence and Support of his Perfon and Government; and thofe Hopes are at laft extinguifh'd with which the Pretender has fo long flatter *df and (ask now appears) deceiv'd himfelf; even the mariner in which he has been affifted by thofe Powers, who encouraged him ' to the Attempt, muft convince him, that he has now been, what he ever will be, only the occafional Tool of their Politicks, not the real Object of their Care. Gentlemen of the Houfe ofComnimt, I have the King's Commands to thank you inhisName, for the Unanimity and Difpatch, with which you have granted theiriecefiary Supplies for the Support of the Sfta-blifhmeht ; you may depend upon their being applied with the utmoft Exactnefs and Frugality. I muft not omit my own Acknowledgments for the particular Confidence yon have placed in me, by leaving to my Care and Management, the great Sum that you voluntarily voted for National Arms, and for the fortifying of the Harbour of Corke ; the confiderable Saving which will appear upon thofe two Articles, as well in the Intereft upon the Loan, as in the Application of the Principal, will, 1 hope, prove that I have been truly fenfible of the Truft re*-poled in Me. The Affiftance which You have given to the Proteftant Charter-Schools, is a moft Prudent, as well as a moft Com' paffionate Charity; and I do very earneftly recommend to Your conftant Protection and Encouragement, that Excellent Institution, by which fuch a confiderable Number of unhappy Children, are Annually refcued from the Mifery that always^ and the Guilt that commonly accompanies un� inftructed Poverty and Idlenefs. M} Lords and Gentlimen, Though Great-Britain has, in the courfeof this Century, been often molefted by Infurrectic*ns at home, and Invai fions from Abroad, this Kingdom has happily, and de-fervedly enjoy'd that uninterrupted Tranquillity, which Trade and Manufactures, Arts and Sciences, require for their Improvement and Perfection. Nature too has bseft f peculiarly favourable to this Country, whofe temperate ? Climate, and fruitful Soil, do invite and would reward Care and Induftry. Let me therefore moft ferioufly recommend to you, in your private as well as in yqur pub-lick Capacities, the utmoft Attention to thofe important Objects, which at once enrich, ftrengthen, and adorn a Nation. They will flourifh wherever they are cultivated, and they are always beft cultivated by the Indulgence, the Encouragement, and above all, by the Example of Perfbns of Superior Rank. -. , I cannot conclude,without repeating my heaftieft thank* to you for your Kmd Addreffes, in which you exprefs your Approbation of my Conduct. My Duty to the King who wifhes the Intereft and Haroineft of all his Sohiects. eatl'd
