We have an Account here, that the French arc in Poffei&on of the City, of Antwerp ; but there is a very ftrong Garrifon in the Citadel, ^hjeii 'tis thought will make a very good Defence. It is iaid the Allied Army is retired towards Breda.   . The Scroop, Ra/bury; aadtht Rowland, Kiidail, from London, are arrived at St. Kitts. The Mullineux, Sneliing, from Bofton, at ditto. The Anfon Snow, Denham, from Hall, to Lifbon, is taken by a French Privateer, and carried into Cherburgh. To the Author of the General Advertiser. SIR,  ' /,^Tr*0 relieve our Fellow-Creatures, efpeciaBy in great J_ Diftreffes, is certainly a moll noble and agreeable Duty, worthy the Author of our Being to enjoin, and of the utmoft Dignity of human Nature to prattife. And in the Chriftian Religion, no one Virtue is fo ftri&ly enjoined, fo frequently inculcated, and fo highly recommended. Even wicked Men are entitled to our Pity ; and it is our Duty in many Cafes to be ready to affift, and endeavour to extricate them out of thefe Calamities, which they have brought themfelves into by their Vices. How much more ready ought we to be to faccour and relieve thofe who fuffer, not by their own Folly or Extravagance of any kind, but from the immediate Hand of Providence ! This I apprehend to be the Cafe of thofe poor People, who have loft their Cattle by the late contagious Diftempsr. I find myfelf prompted to engage in their Behalf, by my ftrong Inclination to relieve the Diftrefles and Necefli-ties of Mankind in general. And, I have Reafon to hope, that my Endeavours in this Inftance will meet with the de-fired Succefs, from the Companion and Charity fo peea-Har to the Gentlemen, Ladies, and other Inhabitants of this great and generous Nation. I publifh'd, fome Weeks ago, an Advertifement in the Public Papep, defiring all the Sufferers by the Death of Cattle, to fend in an Account of their refpe&tve Loffes to Mr. Wood/airs in Little-Britain, and accordingly Letters have been received from a- great many Perfons, fetting forth the deplorable Circumftances which they and their families are in ; being reduced, from a comfortable Subfif-lance by their Induftry, to the deplorable Neceffity of being tum'd out of Doors, with their Waives and Children. It is true, that thq Parliament have paffed aft ASL for the Relief of thofe that have differed by*6is {pfeadmgContagion, but noProvifion � made-for nhpfe who lott' theft 'Cattle before that Aft took Place ; and[the Relief defigned by Parliament will not be equivalent to half ~tl^ Lpfe which the others have fuftained. I therefore hope their Cafe will be confidered, with a tender Senfe of Humanity, by all generous and well difpoied Perfons. And, for'rny own Part, I cannot but think, that Liberality and Oom-paflkm, extended to thofe unhappy Perfons, will be the very beft Way of expreffing our Gratitude to Almighty God, for the glorious Victory lately obtain'd over the Enemies of our Religion and Liberty: And it is, at the fame Time, a moft natural and noble Teftimony of our True Love to our Country, and the Piaafure we take in its Profperity, Upon this Occafion of Feftivity and Triumph, let none of our Countrymen, whom it is in out Power to raife and (uccour, be hindered from bearing a Part in the great and general Joy, by the Weight of their unavoidable. Misfortunes. If any, inclined to concur in this good Defign, will be pleafed to appoint their Places in the City, directed to the Printer of this Paper, I will meet them, to confer on the moft likely Methods to carry the Affair into Execution ; and lay before them all the Letters I have received ' from the Sufferers, on this Subjett, which, I believe, wilt effectually induce them to do what they can for their Re-tof.     Iam, SIR, 7- iffipn to make the Campaign in his Army ; but what Afifwer he received is not pofitively known. According to Advices from Breda, which are faid to'be founded ugfis good Authority, the Allied Army amounts to near 5
