They write from Stockholm, that the Departure of the Troops defigned for recovering the Iflands of Aland, was nei countermanded; as they iaid in their laft Advices j and and &at on die 9th Inftant, N.S. they received the News of thofe Troops having landed in the-Iargeft of thofe Iflands, which they have re-taken, af:er defeating a Body of about 14oo Ruffians, many of whom were madePri-foneRf. . ;iirtters from PeterftWgh bring Advice, that the Treaty of Alliance between the Emprefs and the King of Prufiia is concluded and iigned. Mr. de Chavigny, the French Minifter at Lifbon, having defined to know the Reafons for marching a Body of Portugueze Troops towards the Frontiers of Spain, was anfwered, that it was only done with a Defign to change the Garrifons. All our Advices from Naples bring a Confirmation, that fince the Arrival of foSne Couriers from Spain, they continue their Warlike Preparations both by Sea and Land With more Vigour than ever, and are actually, making di-, vers Machines in the Arfenals fit for letting Ships on Fire. Letters from Francfort of the 15th Inftant, N.S. fay, that the Earl of Stair bad &nt thither an Officer/ with tne following Declaration: ' That the Englifh Troops marched ' into the Empire only with a View to reftore Peace to it; * that when his Britannick Majefty appointed him Gene-' ral of thofe Troops, ,. he-gawp Jusa a firift Charge to *. avoid every Thing that might in the leaft flrike at the ' Dignity of the Head of the Empire ; and therefore, � that the Emperor ought to be perfuaded that the March _ * _of, thofe Troops would beordered foas not todiftarb his * Imperial Majeliy's Refidence at Francfort.' The Earl concluded with Affarances of his profound Refpecl; and Veneration for the Emperor's Perfon. Other Letters from Francfort of the 18th Inftant, N.S* bring Advice, that the Day before at Six o'clock in the Morning, the Emperor fet out for Bavaria accompanied by the Prince Royal and Electoral, and a numerous Retinue; and that he declared before his Departure, that the Situation of Affairs in his hereditary Dominions forced him to take that Journeyy-but thac he hoped to return to Franck-fbrtin a Ihort^Time : Neverthelefs theyaffure us, that the Emprefs and the greateft Part of the Court would take the lame Route in two or three Days. The Spanifh Embafla- dor.is gone along with his Imperial Majefty, and the Pope's Nuntib, the Prufitarii Saxon, and Heffian Minifters were .-preparing to do the fame. They add, that the Troops of the Allies, that have patted the Rhine, have not advanced further, becaufe they waited for the coming up of the reft of the Troops that are actually paffing the Rhine. '. /According to Advices from Ratifbon, all the French JRecruits, amounting to 22000 Men, are arrived,. and the French Army actually confifts of coooo effective Men, be-fides agreat many Sick who are in a Way of recovering. 'The Emperor's Army confifts of 30000 Troops, all in excellent Order. Marflial Broglio fet out for Amberg the 1 ith Inftant, N.S. in Order to fettle the Operations on "that Side with Count Mauritius of Saxony. The French are already 20000 ftrong in.the Upper Palatinate .. It is ' laid the Count de Saxe js to command there, and that Marflial Broglio willgo back to the Danube, in order to keep an Eye to the Motions of the Auftrians, and fecond the Operations of Count SeckendorfF. We hear from Drefden, that fo many Couriers arrive ..there, that they are oftentimes obliged to leave the City Gates open* in the Night. The Saxon Army is cantoii'd in fach a Manner, that on the 'firft Orders they may eafily af-femble in 48 Hours. Count Efterhafi, the Hungarian Mi- * nifter, ftill waits impatiently for the Arrival of a Courier "from Vienna, with an Anfwer to the laft Difpatcheshefent thither, relating to his Polilh Majefty's Declaration, that fas Intention /was to remain always in Pofleffion of his Claims to the*Auftrian Succeffion.   They add, that Or- * den'are fent to the Saxon Minifter at this Court to back the Negotiation of-the Marquis de Pogliani, it being natural for the Kling of Puland to have the Safety of his Sicilian s Majefty at Heart.   - - According to Letters from Chamberry, the Marquis de * la M�na iffued Orders the 6th Inft. N.S. for all the Spanifli Troops to bold themfelves in Readinefs to march.   The ^Infeiit Don Philip lately received a large Remittance in ''Gold Coin, and immediately fent for all thofe Perfons who *lad lent him Hooibold Furniture, and paid them for the Loffes they fuftained by the Fire at the Caftle of Cham- . berry. - From Turin we have Advice, that the King of Sardinra * / is affembling his Army in the Plains of Gorea, and has al-/' ready been joined by four Regimen s from Limbardy. By Letters from Parfc-we hear, that the firft Divifipft of the French Army in Alfaoe paffed the Rhine the 17th Inft. N.S. that the'Matquis de" Segur has taken Poft in the ftrorig Camp at Heilbron, with a Body of Troops : That King Staniflaus was expected at Trianon the 20th Inftant, N.S. and that the French King has declared, that as foon as he hears, that the Dauphin's future Confort is on the Road to France, he willgo and meet her beyond the Loire. They write from the Hague, that the five Regiments of Englifti. Horfe, that were- left at Bruffels, have received pre;ife Orders to begin their March to join the Earl of Stair.     ...'./_-.....� :  ;; ' Fr^Mahliel^w^ar;' that the Officers belonging to the Palatine Troops in Bavaria, who obtained leave to pafs the Winter in that City, have received Orders to repair forthwith to their Polls, and 400 Militia have been fent a-way to recruit. thofe Troops/. They add, that a French Army is aflemblihg^Mofelle and the.Maefe, and that to judge byxenKh Preparations making, the French will open the Campaign on that Side with the Siege of fome Town of Confequence. There are letters in Town, with an Acconntj that the Fox Man of War, which had been at the Canaries, to exchange Prifoners, was arrived at Madeira, and had brought there Captain Wilfon, of the Friendftdp, taken on a Voyage to Guiney; Captain Marflial, of the Glaf-gow, bound to St.-Kitts j Captain Newfon, Captain Baxter, and Capt. Skinner.         It is alfo fa id that there are Letters which advife, that two ftout Spanifli Privateers are gone on the Coaft of Africa, in hopes of meeting there with fome Englifh Ships with valuable Cargoes on board : And that Application has thereupon been made, for a Man of War to fail directly ,to protect the Trade. Yefterday came Advice,-th.it the Orange Tree, Wage-ner, from Curaccoa, is loft on the Coaft of Bonarie, a fmall Iiland to Leeward of Curaccoa; (he failed from Am-fterdam on the 6th of December.

We hear a f unous Hungarian Equilibrift is arrived here,, whofe Performances are very extraordinary, and different from any hitherto exhibited ; and that he will appear On Monday next at the New-Wells near the London Spaw, Mr.' Phillips having engaged him for the Summer Seafon. Yefterday the SefOons ended at the Old Baily, when four Prifoners were tried and acquitted ; after which the Court proceeded to pronounce Sentence of Death on the Six. mentioned incur former to be Capitally convicted ; and then adjourned to Thurftfay the 19th of May, IRELAND.

We hear from Waterford, that Dean Hinton died there a few Days ago. Capt. Glafcock, Agent to the Lord Dillon's Regiment, died lately in Paris. This Gentleman was indefatigable in the Study of the Hiftory of Ireland, which he wrote in French, and had it ready for the Prefs, when it wa6 fup-preft by Monfieur Chauvejin, Keeper of the Seals, on account of its containing feveral Reflections on the Englifh Nation, in regard to the Irifh; whom he owns to have been civilized by them, but at a very dear Expence, by depriving them of Trade, Sec.
