Count Efterhafi has been fome Days returned from Vienna, and is faid to have Orders to* explain to the Court the Reafons that ought to hinder it from making a Reduction of the Troops in the prefent Conjuncture. .It appears in Fact, that the Thoughts of fuch Reduction are at prefent laid afide, and tho' we are to lend no Troops to any Foreign Power, we keep on Foot 60,000 Men, which is very extraordinary in this Country, even in Time of War. It is not certain, however, whether Count Efterhafi'j Reprefentations were the Occafion of this. VUima, July zy.

The Mortality of Cat'le extends itfelf in South France, *�hich has induced an Edict of the Intendant of Lyons to' Prevent the Removal of Horned Cattle from one- Place to 'he other. At the fair* Time there is a Scarcify of Grain to thefe Parts, occafibned by the buying up of what there *a-c for the Ufe of the Camp at Gap' in Dauphmy. After the King of Spain wa* embalmed^ according to* kis Wi!!, his. Body was expofed for three Days: upon,* Hcd 1 of State, and then carried to St. fldefofifo, with fh#�fitaal Ceremonies. - 1 They write from the Hague, {hat Prince Charles hoi writ to the States general a Notification of his Arrival in the Army, in order to take upon them the Command of the Imperialifts, affur-ing him of his Zeal for the common Service, and his perfect Reflect to the Republic; that his Letter was dated the 28th paft, and hadlicen very obligingly anfwered by their~High-MightinefFes. The following Letter, which is a faithful Translation from an Original, feems to be' of as extraordinary a Nature as that lately forwarded hither by M. Van Hoey, and in all Probability will be as much regarded here. A Letter frw Monf. the King of P- 'SIR, .Chamberlain t9 to Monf. T^HE King my Mailer, who, amidft the Troubles of (' _   Europe, purfues no other Intereft than thofe of ' the Public Good, and the neceffary Peace, which he fa : 1 much defires ; has read with great Attention, the Letter  1 which the King of FraBce has caufed to;be wrote by his 1 Minifter, to the Ambaffadorof the States-General, con- ' oerning Prince C-E-- and his Fartizans, who, by ' the Chance of War, have been defeated, after perform- * ing Miracles of Valour. The King my Mafter would ' have wrote in the fame Manner upon this Subject, had ' he been required, tho' he is not allied by Blood to the ' Houfe of S->t.  The Merit of Prince E-- is alone ( fufHcient to determine any Monarch, who is a Friend to ' Courage and Clemency, to act in this Manner. � We are greatly furprifed at our Court, to hear that fe-1 veral Perfons at Paris think this Letter, in the King of * -France's Name, is not wrote with fufHcient Spirit and ' Dignity } and that the Council of L--n look upon as 4 too bold and prefumptuous.. Our Court, which is nei-' ther actuated by the Cabals which may divide Paris, nor ' by the Opinions which may prevail at the Court of St. ' J.....'s, is unanimoufly agreed, that this Declaration, ' which the King of France has made of his Sentiments, ' is, at once, worthy of a Moft Chriftian King, who * makes War with a View to Peace ; and who has the ' Virtue to Ihew, even his Enemy/ wjiat Kings owe to < Humanity, We not onfy look uf$a^tbis Behaviour as ' an Inftance gf Generofity, but as Jpa Overture towards ' ah Accommodation. * We are here firmly perfuaded of two Things; which ' are, That the Miniftry of France entertains a fincere * Defire of Peace, and that it will purfue the War with � Conftancy and Vigour.     ' ' It is high Time that this War, the Effects of which � we have long felt, by the Interruption of our Commerce, * fhould at laft have an End." We were in great Hopes of < it, when we perceived the greateit Part of the United ' Provinces did fmcerely defire it ; and that the King of * France had fo.far accomplilhed this great Work, as to � fign a Treaty with the King of S--a, which was at ' laft to have contented, more tnan one of the Parties con-� cerned, and have been a certain Furtherance of the gene-' ralGood.  God has not permitted thefe noble Inten-   and that they will be executed on Wednefday the 13th Inftant. ' ' Yefterday there was a Proof of 94 Pieces of Cannon at Woolwich, in the PreTence of GeneralBorgard. On Sunday Night Mr. Johnfon an Attorney was attacks at Lower Holloway by three Ruffians, who us'4 him very cruelly, and robb'd him of 28 s. , Laft Night the Dramatiek Piece, called The Gonfpiracy difcover'd; or French Policy defeated % wkh theRepre-fentation of the Trials of the Lords for High Treafon, was acted at the Theatre Royal in Drury-lane, with great Appiaufe, and wilt be perforro'd again To-mozrow Slight, at the Defire of feveral Perfons of Diftinction.
