'Several Deputies extraordinary from Dalecarlia are ar-' rived here, and have declared, that the Inhabitants of * that Province will tamiflr neither Soldiers ri6r Moiaey, V-unjefs^thefe. four Articles or demands be complied with. n That the two Generals under Arreft fhall be put to ' Death. 2.

According to Advices fromRatifbon, the Body of Troopi under Prince Charles' of Lorrain encamps near Than, in order to cover the Blockade of Braunau ; the reft of the Audrians encamp between the Ifer and the Vils, and are going to intrench themfelves there, in order to difpute the Paffage of the Vik with the Imperialifts, in cafe they fhould attempt to march to the Relief of Braunau, while Prince Charles might be buly with the French: As to Braunau, the Auftrians will not befiege.it inform, becaufethey hope to reduce it by Famine. The Imperial Army is in the Neighbourhood of Landfhut; the French are marching to join it, and after this Junction, the Emperor is to take the Command, and try his Fortuneiagainft the Auftrians. From Francfort we find, that both Parties keep pretty quiet in their Quarters ; a Detachment of Auftrians paffed the Main a few Days ago, but immediately repaired it at the Approach of 2000 French, no Hoftilities having been committed on either Side.
