The Lofs of Mails lauly taken from a Poft-boy, who was made drunk on the Road, is much regrtt^ed, as it contarn'd Difpatches of great Importance j "bw nothing can be learned from the Boy, nor any one elfe, to give Satisfaction concerning it. Llghtm, Nov. 4. -There is Advice, that the Engliih have taken, off Cape Corfo, 14 Veflels, one of which was laden with Corn,, and the other 13 with Troops, to the Number of zt>oc, who were immediately fent to Port Mahcme.

The &t Richetieu propofed a Carrel for the Exchange of '^rl^fners, on Condition that the four Genoefe Hoftages be included in it: But this lair. Condition has been rejected. There is a Talk of an Expedition this Winter againft the Slate of Genoa, and the King of Sardinia has held feve-l*al Conferences upon the Subject at Turin : 'Tis faid the Repartition of the Trcopsj and the Rftablifhment of the Magazines for their Subfiftance in this Enterprize, are already fettled.

According to the laft Letters from - Ulna, the States of the Circle of Suabia have refumed their Deliberations. The Minifters of the Imperial and French Courts are very bufy both with this AfTembly and that of Franconia, the firft in Favour of an Affociation of the Circles, and the fecond for maintaining the Neutrality ef tReGennannic Body : But the former jeems to prevail, and 'tis confidently faid, that upon the Arrival of the RufSaDs, they will be joined with fo many Troops as to form an Army of 50,000 Men next Spring uppn the Rhine.

Tbenext Day arrived here from Douay a Train of Ar.illery, and a great Quantity, ef Munitions, which were fent forward to Antwerp. A great Noife of Cannon was heard here all Day Yefterday, from about the Mouth of the Schelde, which we took to be the Rejoicings of the Englifh for the Naval Viftory won by Admiral Hawke. For two Days pall we have begun to pay in the Capitation Tax, upon the Foot eftablifh'd, in order to furnilh the two Millions which the King has demanded of this Province.

M. Saxe is alfoexpeded at Court in a fhort Time. We pride ourfelves here, in Spite of our late Naval Misfortune, upon the gallant Behaviour of the King's Ships. Hague, Nov. 23. Yefterday at Three in the Afternoon a folemn Deputation of the States of Holland waited upon the Stadtholder, and paid the Compliments of their Noble [ and Great Mightioetfes to his Serene Highnefs, to her Royal Highnefs the Princefs, and to the Princefs Caroline, upon the Refolmioa which the Scates of that Province took on the 16th, concerning the Hereditary Succeffion of the Stadtholderfhip in the moil Serene Houfe of Orange.

Major General Lewe|was promoted the fame Day to the Rank of Lieutenant General. Letters from Italy fay, that Admiral Byng has detach'd many Ships from his Squadron, to cruiz* on the Coafts of the Kingdom of Naples; but that the Commanders of them had Orders to abftain from all Hoftilirfes 'till fuch Time as that Court, attempted to march any Troops to Louibardy, or to join thofe belonging to the Republick of Genoa. We learn by Letters from the Coaft of Pomerania^ that conformable to the Refolution taken by his Pruffian Majefty to make Commerce, flourife in bis Dominions, they have equipp'd in the Ports of Stettin and Pillau, feveral Veflels deftin'd to trade directly in the Mediterranean ; that the rich Merchants of Silelia were interefted in the Equipment; and that a Ship was already returned to Ste-tin, from its firft Voyage, with a very rich Cargoe.

' Yefterday Sir Peter'Warren, Lieut. General Howard, and -Capt. Holbourne, took the Oiths in the Court of Common Pleas, Weltmitifter, to qualify themfelves for their refpeclive Offices. .We are affured frorrrgood Authority, that there are-at this Time Numbers of Popifli Priefts at Rotter-dam, and other Ports in the United Provinces, with an Lntept to come over to England j-With what View we do not pretend Pofnively to Affert : But think it. may be. v.,ortfa Confideration.-^They find it difficult to obtain Paffports, and therefore get over in rhe beft manner they can in the Holland Traders.-As a Proof of what we fay, thejte are now three of them Prifonerson board the St. Quintin Ship of War, the Captain of which difcover'd them on-board the Veflels lately arrived in the River from Rotterdam. We are informed that there are Eight Ships arrived at Bourdeaux in France, laden with Corn from England;-� How they dare to do this, contrary to ftrift Laws, is a Matter of Surprize. To-morrow being the Birth-day of hsr Royal Highness the Princefs of Wales, who then enters into the 29th Yeaf of her Age, their Royal Highneffes will receive the Compliments of the Nobility and Gentry at Leicefter'-Houfe.
