The Antilope, Townfend, from Africa, at Jamaica. The Two Brothers, Jones, in five Weeks from Virginia, is arrived at Briftol. Private Letters from Vienna fay, that the Imperial Court have ordered 22,000 Men to march with the utmoft Expedition to join Count Brown, which will enable that General to pufh on the intended Operations 5 and thereby oblige the French to abandon Flanders, or leave their own Country at the Difcretion of the Imperialifts and Piedmon-teie,-who have a long Account to fettle with them. It appears, by all the Accounts received at the Hague, from France, that the Paflage of the Var has affected the Court of Verfailles more than any Thing which has hap-pen'd for a long Series of Time. There are great Mur-murings at Marflial Belleifle; and 'tis faid the French King, on receiving the News, faid very paflionately, " Belleifle has deceiv'd us ! His Letters, but two Days " ago receiv'd, affured us he had taken fuch Meafures as �' rauft prevent the Enemy's Penetration into our Country." By many Accounts we find the French had broke up their Camp, with Defign, they fay, to regain the Borders of the Var; but hearing that the Enemy was already between them and that River, thought proper, 'tis prefumed, to turn the contrary Way. Notwithftanding the fine Stories the French Court (till publilh every Day to deceive the People, 'tis in a manner certain, that moll of the mighty Schemes they had in View (from the Ideas they had fonn'd of their Safety ia Province) will now be entirely laid afide, and their Skill in the Camp and Cabinet for fome Time tend chiefly to the Defence of their own Country.

Thofe Evil Counfellors have alfo prevailed with the King to declare in Scotland, that he is cloathed with Abfo. l*tt P��rr, and that all the Subjects are bound to o'* him ut.hout Rcjerve : Upon which he Las afiumed an 'Arbitrary Power both over the Religion and Laws of that Kmc-dom ; from all which it is appaienr, what is to be looked tor in England, as foon as Matters for it. are duly prepared 15. Thofe great and infirfferable Oppr'effion , have ever reckoned it a Crime for their Subjeds to come in all Submiflion and Refpect, and in a due Number, not exceeding the Limits of the Law, and reprefent to them the Reafons that made it impoffible for thrra to obey their Order*. Thofe Evil Counfellors have alfo treated a Peer of the Realm as a Criminal, only becaufe he faid, That the Subjects were not bound to obey the Orders of a Popifh Juftice of Peace ) though it is evident, that they being by Law rendered incapable of all fuch Trutts, no Regard ir due to their Orders. This being the Security which the People have by the Law for thefr Lives, Liberties, Honours and Eftates, that are not to be fubjefted to the Arbitrary Proceedings of Papift?, that are contrary to Law, put into any Employments Civil or Military. 17. Both We ourfelves, and our and moll entirely .beloved Confort the Princefs, have endeavoured toiignify, in Terms full of Refpeil to the King, the jult and deep Regret which all thefe Proceedings have given us ; and in Compliance with his Majefty's Defires fignified to us. We declared both by Word of Mouth, to his Envoy, and irt Writing, what our Thoughts were, touching the Repealing the Tefl and Penal Laws; which we did in fuch a manner, that we hoped we had propoftd an Expedient, by which the Peace of thefe Kingdoms, and a happy Agreement between the Subjects of all Perfualions, might have been fettled ; but thefe Evil Counfellors have put fuch ill Con-ftrudtions on our good Intentions, that they have endeavoured to alienate the King more and more from us; as if We had defigned to have dillurbed the Quiet [and Happi-nefs of the Kingdom. 18. The laft and greater Remedy for all thofe Evils, is the CaL'ing of a Parliament, for fecuring the Nation againfr. the evil Practices of thofe wicked Counfellors; but this could r.ot be yet comparted, nor can it be eafily brought about. For thofe Men apprehending, that a Lawful Parliament being once aflembled, they would b: brought to an account for all their open Violation of Law, and for their Plots and Confpiracies againft the Proteftant Religion, arid the Lives, and Liberties of their Subjects, they have endeavoured, under the fpecioos Pretence of Liberty <f Confcience, firft to fow Divifions among ProteftantS between thofe of the Church of England and the Dijfenters: The Defign being laid to engage Proteflantsj that are equally concern'd, to preferve themfelves from Popifh O^preflion; into mutual QuarrellingSj that fo by thefe fome Advantages might be given to them to bring abcut their Defigns a and that both in the Election of the Members of Parliament} and afterwards in the Parliament itfelf. For they fee well, that if all Proteftants could enter into a mutual good Underffanding one with another, and concur together m the preferving of their Religion; it would not be poflible for them to compafs their wicked Ends. They have, al'o required all Pertons in the feveral Counties of England, w fideraSie Efleem, to declare before-hand, that they would concur in the Repeal of the Ttjl .and Penal Laws ; and AD V ERTiSEM EN?S are taken in for this Paper, ?i Lloyd's Cott ee-Housb, in Lombard-Street.
