" An, exprefs is arrived from Count de War-Wn/Krbari, and I hear this moment the meffehger has brought the agreeable news that Offova had capitulated, and was actually in the hands of that General. The Tefterdar, who was ewected at Belgrade, arrived.there the 10th inftant. So much refpeci: was paid to him, that horfes were fent to meet] him as �ar as Semendria, and bring him and his fuite to town. The next day the interpreters at Semlin received orders to repair immediately to Belgrade. This offie'er of the Porte is em-fow.red to treat firll about a fufpenfion of hofiili-iws, and afterwards ef peace. It is for no Other purpofe than that of treating with hijn thaf Mar-Jhal Laudohn flopped at Ueigrade; As foon as he brings toa tonclufion thebufinefson which he fleets the Tefterdar, the Marfhal returns to Vienna; and as he is expefted to arrive here this evening, it is-to be pre&UBtd th� bufiaeft has heen fomc time r fetded.

" I do not find that the trade from hence to 'the Levant is fo much diminished as I heard it reported in England ; the wine, oil, and wool exports are very confiderable; the fluffs and ferges, I believe, are little demanded. As to ferge, there is none equals the London* and the manufacturers here fcruple not to acknowledge it; pur-chafers all afk for Serge de Londres. " I was lall week at Aix, but J think there is much mor^ trade carried on here than at that, place, though the firll city of Provence. The people here tell me, that this was a town 500 yeis before the birth of Chrift. 1 am but juft recovered from an ague, which I caught at Aries, one of the moll, unhealthy fitu-ations in France.

" Yefterday afternoon arrived three outward-bound Ealt-lndiamen, and upwards of zoo 'fail of merchant fhips, from the Downs; the wind being fair they did not flop, but proceeded, on ; therefore we could not learn any of ^their names. The outward-bound which have lain fo long here wind-bound took the advantage of the wind and failed, and we are in great hopes that by this time they are clear cf the Channel." � The King George packet, Capt.
