Wind N.tyE. B LONDON. Since our laft arrived the Mail from Flanders. They write from Genoa, of the 24th of laft Month, fJ.S. that a Spanifh Cornier had pafled through that City going to Naples, and reported, that the Court of Madrid was making Preparations for carrying on the War with the greater Vigour, inafmuch as it did not appear that the Court of Verfailles had any Intention to intermeddle with the War in Italy ; that a Treaty had been fet on Foot, and Propofals made by both Parties for an Accomodation ; but with fo little Succefs, that the Queen of Spain had at laft refolved to decide the Matter by the Sword. ExtraS of a Letter from Leghorn, April 24, N.S. * The Commandant of the Englifli Men of War, lhat * lie in the Road of this Harbour, lately fent a Courier to ' the Britifh Conful at Naples, to inform himfelf of the * real Defign of the Motions of the Neapolitan Troops, * whether they were to aft in Conjunction with Count * Gage's Army againft the Queen of Hungary, or whether � they were to invade Tufcany, under the Pretext of reco-4 vering the Allodial Effetts of the Houfe of Medicis; in * either of which Cafes the Conful was to declare, that his ' Britannick Majefty would oppofe them to- the utmoft of ' his Power. That Courier is fince come back, and has � brought Letters not only from the Conful, but from the * Court of Naples itfelf : The latter contain the ftrongeft * Aflurances, that his Sicilian Majefty has no Intention to ' weaken in the leaft the good Harmony which he is defi-' rous of preferring with the Court of London, as long as 1 his Britannick Majefty does nothing inconfiftent with the * Newtrali y concluded between the two Crowns j that the * Motioni of the Neapolitan Troops ought not to give any 4 Umbrage, as they are made only with a view to change * fome Garrifons." According' to Letters from Savoy, which come by the way of Turin, the Marquis de la Mina depends no longer on any Succours from Spain, inafmuch as the Provinces of that Kingdom, and Catalonia in particular, cry out againft the cruel manner in which they are taxed for the Support *f a War which brings them not the leaft Profit; which Murmurs, and the Apprehenfion of a Defcent from the Englifb, oblige the Court to keep Troops along theCoafts, in order to maintain Tranquility at home, and at tkef&W Time guard againft Infults from abroad : Nevertheiefs, the Troops that have already begun their March for Savoy through France, are to proceed to Don Philip's Army. J Letter from Brijlol, dated May c. ' The Silvia, Capt. M'-CowJy. fromilriftol and die Ifle * of May, bound to Carolina, was taken January the 16th, ' by a Spanifh Ship of 20 Guns and 160 Men, and going * into Porto Rico was loft. The Spanifh Ship was bound � from Cadiz to La VeralCruz. Capt. M'Cowly was got ' to St. Chriftophers, and advifes, that he was very well ' ufed by the Spaniards; there being many Perfons of * Note, as Paflengers, in the Ship bound to Veja-cruz.'

Mr. John Waite, the late Cafiuer of the Bank of England, is removed by Habeas Corpus from the King's Bench Prifon to the Fleet, where he now remains confin'd, with out the Liberty of the Rules. On Saturday laft a Gentleman that had his Horfe ftolen from him fome Time ago, walking thro' Newgate-ftrect, happened to fee a Man upon his Back, upon which he claimed the Horfe, and feized the Perfon ; but it appearing that the Man had fairly bought and paid for the Horfe, he would not furrender him 5 and being alfo a Man of Reputation it is likely to Occauon a Suit at Law. The Queftion is, whether a Horfe publickly fold, and honeftly paid for, |ho' not tolled in a Fair or Market, be not a legal Sale. On Saturday laft his Royal Highnefs the Prince of Wales was at May Fair, to fee the Collection of Wild Beafts, and approved of the BEAVER as the moft curious Animal he ever faw.

THERE being inferted in the Carolina Gazette from July the 5th, to July the 12th, 1742 ; in that Part thereof, which is there called the Honourable John Fen-wicke, Efq; his Speech to (Colonel Vanderduffen, many extraordinary Things, and one particularly, which we cannot help taking Notice of viz. " And when Commodore Pearfe had -alfo fet Sail " and left you, (viz. Vanderhuffcn) alone upon that * Ifland (viz. Anaftafia) with the Forces only of this " Province, for your having brought off notwichftand-" ing (under the Bleffing of God) with fuch good Con-� duct, all the Artillery, which the General had de-" dared impojjible to be done, and preferved the fame, " together with all your Men, Craft, Sec. at that de-" plorable Juncture, when in all human Probability, the whole muft have fallen into the Enemy's Hands, and " happily coaipleated your Retreat without any Lofs. We think ourfelves obliged in Juftice not only to Captain Pearfe, and the Officers and Seamen of that Squadron, but to his Majefty *s Service, and to the World, which may be deceived by the above AfTertion, to declare that the fame is not Fact, and that Mr. VanderduiTen. and the Carolina Regiment, were not left upon Anaftafia alone. That they did not alone bring off the Artillery, and that they did not compleat the Retreat; but on the contrary, that General Oglethorpe with Part of his Regiment, in which was Major Heron, Captains Defbrifay and Dunbar, Lieutenant James Mackay, Enfigns Folfon, Mackay, Sutherland, Cathcart, Stewart and Wemyk, and Quarter-Mafter Wan-fell, formed the Rear in the Retreat upon the Main, for that he with that Part ef his Regiment, the Indians, Rangers, and Highlanders, flayed on the Main, within half Cannon Shot of the Gates of Auguftine,to reftrain any Sallies from the Town, till the Artillery, excepting one Piece of Cannon which was left behind burft, and all the Men and Stores were embarked from Anaftafia, and till he faw all the Craft with them on board, failed out of the Harbour, and the Men of War alfo failedT And we do alfo declare, that the only Battery which did engage the half Gallies the Day of the Retreat, was managed by Mr. Mace, and Men paid by General Oglethorpe, and guarded by a Detachment of his Regiment, and that under the Command of Enfigns Mace and Hogan, and that the faid Battery did force one of the Gallies aground. There was upon Anaftafia befides Mr. VanderdufTen's Regiment, fome of the General's Reg;ment, which flayed to the very laft with the Artillery, and a large Party of Sailors alfo were left by Capt. Pearfe, and the Captains of the Men of War on Anaftafia to the laft ; and help'd to bring off the Cannon, and were paid by General Oglethorpe's Order for every Gun they brought off. And Mr. VanderduiTen was fo far from;compleating any Retreat, that a Party of General Oglethorpe's Regiment commanded by Mr. Hogan, marched in the Rear .of the Carolina Regi. ment, and after that Regiment had marched off, the General in the Rear of his own Regiment fecured the Retreat, Sign'd, 'Jams Oglethorpe, Thomas Eyre, Alexander Heron, Probart Hawarth, George Dunbar, Samuel Mackay, James Mackay, Solomon Chamberlain?, Primrofe Maxwell, William Rabin/on. George Cadogan, WHEREAS the Names of Lieutenants Maxwell and Cadogan are figned to the foregoing Paragraph, in. which they don't appear to have been prefent in the Retreat, they think it neceffary to add the following Explanations. At the firft railing of the Carolina Regiment, the General to affift that Province in disciplining their Men, dif-penfed with the Duty of us, who were then fecond Enfigns in his Regiment, and we were accordingly appointed Officers in that Service, viz. Mr. Maxwell, Captain Lieutenant, and Mr. Cadogan, Lieutenant; that upon the firft Promotions we were both appointed Captains. As this obviates an Objection which might be made by fome who dare to print what they can't fign, is alfo enables us to add the following Particulars, which could not occur to other Perfons. After the Orders were given for a Retreat, Capt. Dunbar, by the General's Order, came from his Camp on the Main to Anaftafia in the General's Cutter, and affifted in embarking the Carolina Regiment, and after the whole were gone off, Capt. Dunbar, returned to Point Quartette, and flayed there till Col. Vanderduffen and thegreaieft Part of his Regiment was landed, and then went and reported to the General, that Colonel Vanderduffen, was landed fafe at Point Quartelle, which is feperated from Auguftine by an Arm of the Sea, which together with a Party of the General's Regiment which marched in our Rear, was a great Happinefs te us, for the Carolina Regiment marched in fueh Diforder, that the Van which the Colonel generally led, was feldom lefs than four Miles from the Rear, and at the firft Nights halting, Col. Vanderduffen, lay in the Front, and Mr. Maxwell in the Rear, at the Diftance of two Miles, and that the Regiment never joined �fill llltfy 'Came toUt. John's, where The ColoneTarrived feveral Hours before the whole came up. That a Day or two after, the Carolina Regiment came to St John's, Mr. Maxwell rode back from thence twelve Miles towards St. Auguftine, where he met the General and his Regiments in their March to Saint John's.
