While we wait for mote, important News from abroad* we imagine our Readers will not be difpleafed to fee the Tranflations of two fhort Letters that hare lately appeared JH^e Foreign P"nts. 'The firft -is-from the Kifjg cf, opaifcto the States-General, upon the recalling of the Marquis de St. Gilles, and expreffes the entire good Under-ftatrding between his Catholic Majefty and their High-Mightineffes. ' High and Might) Lords, our Dear and Good Friends, * We have refolved to call home te our Court the Mar- * quis de St. Gilles, our Ambaffador to you, in order to\. ' beftow on him Marks of the Approbation he has merited' * of us by his good, Conduct. It is with this View that * we have defUned him for fome Employment, wherein hei * may exercife.hi Talents to the great Advantage*of. our * Service. The laft' Orders we fend him is to reiterate to, * your High-Mightinefles, at his Departure, Affuranccs of the true Efteem we preferve towards you, and of the' 1 iincerc Defire. ^herewith we wifh to fee that perfeft: * Harmony contihaei which reigns between the two Na-f' ' tions, and to which his Zeal has always contributed ' being thoroughly _perfuaded, that this Circumftance has: ' rendered his long Fimbaffy agreeable to you. ! ' We pray God to have, High and Mighty Lords, our ' Qood and Great Friends, in his holy Keeping. Aranjuez, Sign'd, Hay io, 1746. PHILIP. The other is from Cardinal Tencin to the Clergy of his Diocefe of Lyons; and is an excellent Specimen of that Holy-Cant, with which that proud and bloody Prieft endeavours to palliate his own and his Matter's deftru&ive Schemes. ' The numerous Conquefts which have already dlftin-' guifhed the Beginning of this Campaign, do fo much ' the more call for your Thankfg'ivihgs, my moft dear ' Brethren, as the King owes them almoft all to the Ter-' rw of his Arms.. . The- more.glorious are they to the ' Monarch ; and the more agreeable, as they were pur-' chafed at fo fmall an Expence of the Blood and Tears of ' his Subje&s. But v?hen fhall we, alas! fee Days of 'Tranquillity fucceed thefe Days of Glory? May our ' Vows halten their" Approach ! May our Succeffe�, at laft, ' infpire all Hearts with thofe pacific Sentiments, which ' thofe Succeffes do but the more augment in the Heart of ' his Majeity. Let us not doubt but the Source of fo ma-' ny Proiperities is the King's invariable Love of Peace, ' find Peace herfelf would be the Crown of the Crown of ' taem all: She would be the moft precious Recompence ' of the Coaqueror's Moderation. .

A Letter from an Officer in Colonel Houghton's Regiment id the Highlands. . Dear Jack, ^ June 18, 1746. .* My laft was from Nairn { fince which, nothing very , ' remarkable has happened in our Part of the World, un- * lefs it is that of marching and countermarching, of which * our Regiment in particular has had enough : The Duke *� being defirous we fhould join him at Invernefs, we ' remained here till the 23d, when the Duke with the * whole Army (except four Regiments left at Invernefs, ' under the Command of General Blakeney) march'd in � two Days to Fort Auguftus, at which Place we cn-' camped again. We were ordered to march and re- * lieve Part of General Guife's Regiment at Fort ' William, which Place had fuffered much by a Siege � of feventeen Days by the Rebels, under the Command ' of Brigadier Stapleton, who was afterwards wounded * at the Battle of Culloden, and is fince dead. The BaT- * racks and Works of Fort William are greatly damaged, * but the Duke has been there and ordered them to be * repaired : Ihad not been here above four D.iys before I * was-ordered to march with a Party of our Men to relieve * the Garrifon of this Place ; which from Fort William js ' a hundred Englifli Miles more- North, and dire&ly ' through the very Heart of the Rebels Country ; I mar-' ched it in four Days, it raining exceffively hard the * whole Time, climbing Rocky Mountains opon all-fours, I ' wading through at leaft forty rapid Rivers, fome up to ' * our Middle, and nothing to cover us but the bare Hea- vens at Night } added to this, I was fired at feveral ' Times by imall Bodies of the Rebels from the Rocks, * where it was morally impoflible for me to get at them-: � Upon the third Day I was marching in a Valley, with ' two high Mountains on each Side, and a Party of thefe ' Brutes, that were reconnoitring the Country, came thun-' dering down the Hill till within Gun-fhot, fwearing in ' their Language (as my Guide informed me) that they * would cut us all to Pieces ; my SpoDtbon being a diftin- * guifhing Mark for them, every Ball was levelled at me, � the firft turned round theSjiear cf my Spontoon. and * the fame Ball grazed under the Belly of one of myHorfes, * which be was upon; the fecond Shot came between me ' and one of my Recruits, and the third fell about half a � Yard fhot of me j I flood thus feven Shot (and thank ' God efcaped them all) expecling they would advance ' upon me, but they dill maintained their Ground, and as I ' found it impoflible to get at them, I marched on arid ' they left me ; one Man in their Situation was better thin * a thoufand with me, and 1 might as well have pretended. ' to climb up the Outfide of Weftminfter Abbey as to get ' at thofe Villains. ' The third Day after our Arrival at his Place, one * Barefdel, who had been a Colonel with the Rebels, came ' here with fifty-two of his Men, and delivered up their ' Arms; and Numbers are daily brought in to the Duk^e ' at Fort Auguftus, and to our Regiment at Fort William. * I really look upon the Highlands to be as much conquered ' now as it is poflible for them to be, as there is no fuch ' Thing in Nature effsctually to difarni thefe Savages in ' their inacceffible Mountains. They talk of traofportiflg ' them, but I cannot tell where to find a worfe Country to ' fend them too ; I am fure the greateft Punifharent that ' could be infti&ed upon me in this World, would be \o ' make me fpend the Remainder of my Life, here for-cer-' tainly the wife Creator cf all Things never intended it fr ' any Human Creature to live in, uniefs for thefe Cannibals * that inhabit it. My Chief Diet is Oat-B/ead and T .ilk; < as for Wine, or Punch, I have long fmce loft tL_ Fla-4 vour of, and have no one ftrong Liquor to fupporr Na- * tuce with, not even W hifky,which is the common Drink 4 of the Country, and that at belt but a bad Spirit.
