If the new King wins the Love and Admiration of his People, it muft be confefs'd that his Majdty has no gjeater Cares than thofe of giving them Marks of his paternal Affection. What above all renders him the Idol of his Subject is the manner wherein hedif-, pofes of vacant Employments, which he gives to Spaniards only, and to Spaniards of known Merit and Probity. In a Word, the Reign of Foreigners feems to be quite over. We talk no more of the Operations of the French in FHnders than if France was a Part of lerra lit-tognita, and had no Connection with this Monarchy. Or-' oers are faid to be difpatched to the Duke de Hueicar, who was fent into Italy lomeTime before the Death of the late King to make a^Diverfion in the King of Sardinia's Dominions, that he mould return immediately to Court, and refume his Poll of- Captain of the Guards. There is even a Talk of the fpeedy Return of the Infant Don Philip : Bat this feems to be founded only upon his Majefty's Inclination to put an End to the War in Italy, and rellore the good Underftanding that formerly fubfifted with the King of Sardinia. A% in all Appearance, the prefent Reign will not be lefs pacific than the former was warlike, it is given out, that his Majefty will have no more Dif-pates with the Powers of Europe j and that, with a View to the Profperity of his People, he will caufe all the Com-plaiutsof foreign Nations to be examined and terminated, beginning with tnofe of the States-General. Gbamberrfi Aug. 9. After all the Reflections that have heen made upon the Counter-Orders fent to the Spaniards when they were upon the Point of marching to join the Frftich, it is now faid openly, that his Catholic Majefty,: feeing how much the Finances of the Kingdom were ex-taufted, has not only ordered the Difeontinuance of the Remittances for Italy, but alfo feems very much difpofed to put an End to that War. Some go fo far as to fay, that he '�it a Letter to Count Gages for the King of Sardinia, - which that General forwarded to his Majefty by a Trumpet. Zxtratt cf a Letter from an Officer of DiflinElion, written upon the Ft f Li of Battle, at Rotta, Aug. 1 1. ' The Almighty granted us Yefterday a tre'fli Victory over the Army of the three Crowns, which had paffed 'thePo near where the Tidone falls into that River.with a ' Dtfign to retire hy the Way of Tortoha: We made ' i $09 Prifqners, among which are 5t Officers } and 8 \ Colours, 3 Standards, and'9 Pieces of Cannon have" ^ been fince brought to the general Quarters; not to men-*t Aon, what we ftill expect to find among the Bu&es. The I Lois of the^Enemy in Kill'd and Wounded is very confi-' derabie ; but we cannot yet determine it. Ours confifts t 37� Killed, 1�74 W�unded, and-264. Loffor Stray'd. t The brave Baron Bernclau, Lieutenant-Field-Marftial and Colonel of a Regiment of Foot, is in-the Number of ( jhe firft, and alone makes our greateft Lofe. He was , !Lut4) Years of Age, and coftfeqoently voting'hv the fune he had'lived j but very old if we reckorrup hi Exploits. The Generals Pallavieinij Serbelloni and Vogthern are among the Wounded. ' The Beginning or the Battle was very fuccefsful ; but the Enemy afterwards feemed tb' get the-Advantage of our Right, which was juft upoh the Point of turning' when the Left Wing marched to its Support, and ena-. bled it to make a' frefh Stand; The Enemy were re-pulfed, and, in Spite of all their Efforts, obliged to a-; Time, the Field Train which the Auftrians were expecting i^j-frdm the Rhine, conlifting of 14 three Pounders, and fix �B&ubitzes, and efcorted by above 1000 Recruits, has ^ thrown itfelf by forced Marches into Maeftricht.
