   General Advertiser (Newspaper) - July 16, 1846, London, Middlesex                                The General Advertifer. WEDNESDAY,   July 16,   1746. u > W Deah July 14. AME down and failed the Princ William, Groute, for Lever-poel { and Friendfhip, Moran, for Madeira. Alfo came down the Farmer, Strangeways; and Greyhound, Godrid, for Gui-ney ; and remain with the Oat-ward-bound, as in my laft. Wind N.E. Grave/end, July 14. Pafs'd by Sarah and Margaret, Tweedy, from Campvere ; the Lawrence, Johnfon, from Norway ; and Two Brothers, Montua, from Stettin. - Ratisbon, Jul/ 20. On the 27th of laft Month the Am-baflador of Mentz, Director of the Diet, read in the Af-fembly of the Electoral College, a Memorial, drawn up as an Anfwer to that which was prefented by the College of Princes in the Month of February paft, concerning a perpetual Capitulation. It contains in Subftanee, ' That the � Electoral College does not forget that his Imperial Ma-�jefty remonftrated to the Empire, by a CommifTorial De-� cree dated the 8th ef October laft, that in the Treaty of � Weftphalia, and to his Capitulation, it would be very *** � advantagious for the Repofe and Glory of the Empire to . * refume the Affair of the perpetual Capitulation, and en-' deavouring to terminate it in a friendly Manner; and � that as the College of Princes had declared their Readi-� nefs to concur in it, without fuffering a Stop to be there-� by put to the other Affairs that are upon the Tapis, the  Electoral College was alfo equally ready to labour in this  important Work, that it may, at laft, be brought to a < Conclufion, to the Satisfaction of all thofe that are inte-  refted in it.' N.B. The Capitulation is a Contract or Inftrument, figned by each Emperor at his Election, which he fubmits ts as the Rule and Standard of his Government during his whole Reign. Hence fome of the Emperors have been abundantly more tied down than others, according as their own natural Strength and Intereft could prevail in the drawing up thefe Articles. LONDON. ExtraS 0/ a Letter from Paris, July 8. * For two Days paft a. Manufcript, faid to be from M.  **, Chamberlain to the King of P****, to M. **�*, � has been handed about here. The Tendency of it is to � juftify the Letter which M. D'Argenfon wrote to M.  Van Hoey in Favour of the young Pretender.   Monfieur  the Chamberlain fays, among other Things, " That � his Mafter would have written in the fame Manner asM. D'Argenfon did, if it had been requefted of him, " tho' he was not allied in Blood to the Houfeof Stewart."  And a little after he adds, " That they are furprized at " his Court, to find that this Letter of the French Minifter, " which many People at Paris do not think written with " fufficieot Dignity, as it was in the Name of the French " King, fhould be treated by the Council of London as " too audacious."  It will be Time enough to put this  apologetic Letter of the King of P***'s Chamberlain  into the Gazettes, when M. D'Argenfon (hall think pro-'� 'per to adopt it, or the true Author, whoever he be, fhall S� * come from behind the Curtain. M . Tht, adSitional Body of Troops, which the Emprefs-\\ Q^een is_going to fend into the Low-Countries, will be  about 15,000, and the Britifh Reinforcement, fent and to be fent, will, 'we hear, cenfift of 9000. they write from Peterfburgh, that a Courier is arrived ^ there from the Porte, difpatch'd by M. Nepleuf, the Em-^ prefs's Minifter to the Grand Signor, and containing, ffi among other Things, the private Negociations that have ^* been carrying on between his Sublime Highnefs and Tha-mas Kouli Khan, concerning the Means of reftoring and j^*- eftabliftung Peace between the Turkifh and Perfian Empires. According to the lateft Advices from Vienna, a Plan had lately been received there from London and the Hague, relating to a general Accommodation in Europe : But the Emprefs having examined it in a general Council held on the Occafion, thought fit afterwards to declare, 4 That 4 how defirous foever fhe might be of a Peace, fhe* could  not in this Plan find the Advantages which in Juftice fhe  had Reafbn to hope for: That it would be eafy for her to 4 obtain more considerable Advantages of the Crowns of 4 France and Spain, if fhe would enter into a feparate Ne-4 gociation with either of them, they having already fig-4 nified what they would do oniuch an Occafion { Bjt that 4 being firmly and invariably refolved to enteAio Negocia ' tiom, of what kind foever, to the Exclufibn of her AI-* lies, fhe perfifts in exhorting her faid Allies to concur ftill r equally with her in thofe vigorous Meafures, which ought to refult from their mutual Confiancy, and the Harmony of their Refolutions.' The Bifhop and Prince of Liege, Brother to the Elector of Cologne, and Uncle to the Elector of Bavaria is _ gone to Bonnj hit Brother's Capital, in order to confer with him npori the Melfures proper to be taken in the prefent critical Situation of Affairs, when the Armies both of France and the Allies are approaching the Territories of Liege, and may probably enter upon them. The Letter which M. Van Hoey has now tranfmitted to his Matters for their Approbation, is the formal Piece, in which the Satisfaction required is to be contained, thofe before publifhed to the Duke of Newcaftle having been only Prologues, to prepoffefs his Grace in Favour of the Offender. Letters from BrufTels fay, that the Auftrian Troops, which were in Garrifon at Mons, have been conduced to Valenciennes, but that the Dutch* are proceeding after their Countrymen into the Heart of France. By Advices from Prague, dated July 9, we are told, that the Jews, who have been for fome Time indulged, muft now abfolutely evacuate that Capital, without LeaVe to return, before the End of the Month, and wait at the Dif-tance of at leaft two Leagues for the ultimate Orders of the Court of Vienna. By a Gentleman juft arrived from the Allied Army in Flanders, we have an Account, that by the Number of Regiments, it confifts of 50,000 Auftrians, 18,000 Hanoverians, 5000 Englifh, ^oooHeffians, and 25,00a Dutch, in all 103,000 : But it is certain that there are about 90,000 effective Men, and in good Spirits, being very defirous of coming to an Action. The Englifh and Heffians have taken their Port on the Left, being inferior in Number to the others. Letters from the Low Countries fay, that Count Bathi-ani, Chancellor of Hungary, had begged Leave to refign that Office into the Emprefs Queen of Hungary's Hands, on Account of his Indifpofitien. By the new Octroy granted to the Eaft India Company in Sweden, dated the 17th of laft Month, all their old Privileges are continued, and fome of great Confequence are added. The whole Charter confifrs of 32 Articles, in which the National Advantage is no lefs confulted than that of the Company, and Provifion is made for their exporting the Commodities and Manufactures of the Kingdom, exporting likewife beftpart of their Retqrns, and taking Care the Lutheran Worfhip fhall be exercifed in their Ships and Colonies. From the London Gazette. Vienna, July 13. Prince Charles fet out laft Night for the Low-Countries. Dieffen Camp, July 20, N.S. To-marrow we march to Faulkenfwert, where we fhall be within a League ajid a half of Count Palfi's Corps ; and Yefterday Morning we learn'd, that Prince Charles will be here in two or three Days. The Enemy's Grand Army Under M. Saxequitted the Demur Yefterday, and marched to Lou vain, having the Dyle before them, and a flying Camp of 12000 Men, and the Light-Troops at Arfchott. On the 2 2d we proceed from Faulkenfwert to Peer, and from thcace on the 23d to Hsffelt. Hague, Jufy li. We have.juft learn'd by an Exprefs from Paris, that a Courier, was arrived there from Madrid, with the News of the Death of the King of Spain, who had been fuddenly carried off, on the 9th Inftant, by a Fit of an Apoplexy. Hague, July zz, N.S. The fudden Death of the King of Spain is confirmed by all the Letters from Paris of the 18th. By our Advices from Brujjeh of the a 1 ft, the French Army on the Side of Charieroi is divided into two Corps; the Prince of Conti is at Marchienne au Pont, and Count d'Etrees at Chattalet in the Territories of Liege. The French fire very briflcly againft St. Ghilain, but the Inundation about this Town is fo very high, that it was thought the Place might hold out forrie Days. It is reported, that the King of Spain's Death was for fome time concealed, in ordft to pufh a little farther the Projects^jf his Ambiticus and Turbulent Confort, who muft now be excluded from all Share in the Administration. Letter from Dover, July 14. . 4 The Cholmondeley Cotter, in the Service of the Cu- * ftoms, has taken and brought in here a fmalt French * Privateer, with one Carriage Gun, and four Swivels, * and 16. Men.- By a Deferter from Dunkirk, arrived * here, we have Advice of the Death of the King of * Spain.' It is confidently afferted, that the Government have received fome Extraordinary News, which when made pub-lick will be perfectly agreeable tb all that with well 16 their Country.       , .
