The Sheernefs Privateer, Cipt. Richardfon, ii arrived it Briftol, from a Cruize. LONDON. �xtra3 of a Letter from Madrid, Stpt. i z.  It is very far from being true, that the Recalling of - Count Gages was the Effeft of any Difconteat againft � that Lord.  The Kmjj knows bis Talents in the Military < Arts and his Majefty is very glad to have in this King* ' dora a General of his Experience and Capacity. And to * give him a fhioing Mark of the King's Regard for his < Services, two of the moft confiderable Commands in the * Kingdom hare jaft been conferred on him, viz. that of ' Vitloria, of the Order of St. Jago, and that of Pozeolo, * of the Order of Calatrava. The Puke de Salas Monta- * kgre, late Prime Mmifter of the King of the Two Si- < cilies, has had feveral Private Audiences of his Majefty 1 face his Arrival at Court, in which he has communi- < cated the Sate of Affairs at the Court of Naples.  He * has alfo given an Account of what pafs'd in Relation to * bis own Miniftry, arid of the Circumftances which oc- * cafioned his being feat for back into Spain by the late < King. His Majefty has given a Public Token of his * Satisfaction with this Lord, by continuing the Patent be* * fore granted to Bias of Cooncellor of State. M.dcl* * Chsvtgny, the French Ambaflador* the Court of Por-�tagal� propofes to fpend tome Daya hew before he pro* * ceeds to JUfbon. lil has with liim feme Inftrodionsre� �iative to the laft Ctodera which ^Bimop of Rennet ie- * cared front Vafaines. Our Minjfteri have, in the moft * pofitive Manner, confirmed to this Prelate the little Foun-4 dation there wis for the Reports, which have been < lately (tread, as if this Court was going to enter on a Se- < paratt Negotiation. And tho' the Marquis de Taber-' sags is arrived at Lifbon ever Snce the 20th of kit * Month, the Letters he has written hither have nothing < in them but to define Permiftton to return into this King- < dona. They don^t contain a Word about the Commiflion � with which he was faid to be entrufted by the Britifh ' Court; fo that we are hitherto ignorant if there was any * Thing true with regard to that Subjeft; but are per-' fuaded however, that the Marquis would not take upon ' him any foch CommhTton before he was fare of his Re-1 turn into Spain, and what were the King's Sentiments * Concerning him. As his Majefty has faid nothing upon 1 this Subjeft, we do not know theEffed of the Marquis's * Solicitations. ' A Courier is arrived here from the Infant Don Philip 1 with Letters to tbt King, by which he informs his Ma-' j�fty, that juft when the Troops of the Three Crowns ' weje in good Hopes of maintaining themfelves in the ' State of Genoa, till the Reinforcements expecled from ' Spain and France could arrive, the Auftrians found ' Means to force the Paflage of the Bochetta ; that this ' Circumftance, joined to the Motions made by the King ' of Sardinia on his Side, had obliged them to take other ' Meafuaes; and that it had therefore been refolved to ' make the Troops return into the County of Nice, in or-\oertotake up Quarters along the Var, and upon the ' Frontiers of Dauphiny. The Infant propofes to arrive ' tare, in a Fortnignt, in order td fpeud the Winter, while ' fomething fhall either be decided in his Favour by Nego-' ciations, or a Refolution fhall be taken to refer the De-' cifion again to the Chance to War. The Courtiers flat-' ter themfelves, that the Advantages gain'd in the Low-1 Countries will cornpenfate what has been loft in Italy. According to Letters from Munich of the 2 jth, the third voliww of tbe Bavarian Troops was to fet out on the 26th, the Prince of Hilburghaufen at their Head, in order 18 follow the two former Columns. The Duke �f Modena hath fent a Secretary to Vienna*' in order, by hi* Application, to find Means for reftoritig that Prince to his Dominions. From the London Gazette* Naples, Sept. 6, N.S. In the Evening of the 3d tn-flant, by Orders from Covrt, an Embargq was laid on all Veffels actually in the Ports of the Kingdom, and upon thole that fhall arrive, in order to compleat the Number*, of 120, which are to be employed in tranfporting the King's Troops from the Coaft of Genoa to this City. Venice, Sept. 16, N. S, The Letters from Genoa mention an Action between the Piedmontefe and the French near Final, but were uncertain which had tbe Advantage. This is iuppofed to be an Attack of the Rear Guard under M. Mirepoix, who remained with 12 Battalions to cover the Retreat of their Army. The Britifh Squadron, Part of which was at Savona, and Part near Ventimklia, have incommoded the French very much in their Match, and obliged them to leave the Road along the Reviera, and to march through a very difficult Way over the Mountains. Don Philip and the Duke of Modena are fuppofed to-be at Nice, where a Palace was ordered to be prepared for their Reception. Six thonfand Warafdins of the laft. Reinforcements are already arrived at Mantua, and will be foen followed by 6000 more, two Regiments of Horfe, and two of Infantry, who are marching with all Diligence through the Tirol- The Imperialifh are, by the Ammunitions and Provisions of all forts found in the State af Genoa, and.by the Contributions levying, as well as by the Numbers of Recruits, and of Deferters, who are returned to their Colours, in the beft Condition that can be well ima- Fort-William, Sept. 21.

There is Advice, that the Betty, Abraham ; and Indu-ftry, Fofter, both from Southampton to Cerk, were lately taken by the Count de Maurepas, a French Privateer; but were both ranfom'd.
