The William and Anne, Ladd, from London, is arrived at Jamaica. The Catherine, Lambert, from Jamaica, at Briftol. LONDON. Yefterday arrived the Mail from Holland. Letters from Vienna fay, that the Queen has approved and ratified the Articles concerning an Armiliice agreed upon between Count Seckendorff and the Velt Marflial Kevenhuller. But, According to Advices from Ratifbon, it is very much queftioned whether the Aultrians will Hand to that Bargain, becaufe the French in Garrifon at Straubingen and Ingol-fladt refiife to evacuate thofe two Places, and that the loi--perialifts will not undertake to compel them to it. In the mean time, the Body of Troops that were employed at the Blockade of Braunau, has received Orders to march to Straubingen, whither the heavy Artillery that was in the Upper Palatinate has alfo been fent; another Body of Aultrians is ordered to go and block up Ihgolftadt ; fo that it is not doubted but thefe two Places will be foon befieged in Form. From Manheim we hear, that Marihal Broglio is gone to his Government of Strafb-irgh, after giving up the Command of the Army to the Count de Saxe, who is expected .fhordy in the Neighbourhood of Manheim on. the Necfcar, where, we are aflured, he is to be joined by a great Number of Troops actually marching from divers ExtraS of a Letter from f^r/^ y^fy r+i ^rj � The nth Inftant in the Night, the French abandoned their Camps at Steinheim and Offenbach, after fettine Fire to them, and went to take Poft at Sprengelingen within two Leagues of this City towards the Country of Darmftadt, where Marihal NoaiHes has fixed his Head-Quarters : The Army is ftill there, and it is not ki�- whether M. Noailles will wait for Martbai Droglio's Army, or whether he intends to march farther. The Allies flill encamp between this City and Hanau. Some Detachments from the Independent Companies having palled the Main when the French were retreating, made the Marquis deBeauveau Prifoner, and picked up fome of the Baggage. The Huffars under General Nadafti are not yet arrived in the Camp of the Allies, but we hear that a great many of them has been feen in the Neighbourhood of Heidelberg. The Day before the French decamped, Marihal Noailles came hither and had a private Audience of the Emperor. ' We hear from Hanau, that a Grand Council of War was held there Yefterday, wherein it was propofed to follow the French Army ; but the Refult of that Council is, as yet, a Secret to us. * The Dyet of the Empire have at laft difpatched the intended Letters to the King of Great-Britain and the States General of the United Provinces, to defire them to join their Mediation with that of the Germanick Body, in order to reftore the Tranquility of the Empire, and, if poffible, compofc the Differences between all the Powers at War. Letters from Duffeldorp fey, that Marihal Noailles's Army arrived at Gerau the 14th Inftant, N.S. but that it did not yet appear whether it weald march towards the Neckar, or repafs the Rhine. According to fome Advices from the Upper Rhine, the Corps de Referve of Marihal Broglio'* Army has repafled the Rhine, and is to be followed forthwith by the reft of the Army, the firft Divifion of which arrived the 8th In ftant, N.S. at Sintzheim. The Army under Prince Charles of Lorrain paffed the Danube the 8th and 3th of July, N.S. and arrived the 1 ith on the Territories of the Circle of Franconia. That Army confifts of near 60,000 Men. Prince Charles de ached a Body of 10,00c Horfe and Foot for Italy, before he quitted the Bavarian Territories. They write from Paris, that the Conrt continues to receive frequent Couriers from Francfort, fome difpatched by the Emperor to his Minifter at Verfailles, and the others by the Count de Lautrec, the French Minifter at the Imperial Court: According to the Difpatches brought by thofe Couriers, there is great Likelihood that the King of Pruffia will join his Mediation to that of the Empire and the Maritime Powers, in Cafe a Negotiation be fet on Foot for a general Pacification. They add, that the Reports of an approaching Peace have brought their Actions from 2030 to 2045 Livres. Letters from Copenhagen fay, that as foon as they received the News of the Election of the Duke of Holflein Bifliop of Lubeck, in Quality of Succeffor to the Swedifh Throne, the King called a Grand Council, and the fame Day (*hich was the 6th of July, N.S ) Orders were iffued for the Fleet to be in Readinefs to put to Sea the 8th, or the Day following. They tell Ui from the Hagoe, that the States General will forthwith anfwer the Letter of the Dyet of the Empire, reqaefting their Mediation in prefent Conjuncture, and ftew the Germanick Body how ready they are to concur in the great and defirable Work of reftoring Peace to Europe ; and that as the King of Pruffia has lately explained himfelf on this Subject in the moil favourable Terms, they hope foon to hear whether the Congrefs is to be held at Francfort or at Mentz. They write from Chamberry of the ift Inft. N.S. that the Spaniards are fortifying Montmelian, and continue their Preparations for an Bpproaching March ; that 198a-tallions have begun to encamp in the Valley of Lizero, and m the Neighbourhood of Conflans; that a great Number of Mules are arrived in the Army with Warlike Stores j that feveral Engineer! have been fent to reconnoitre thePaf-fages of the Mountains, and that ihe Marquis dela Mina is gone to meet the Troops coming from Catalonia, in order to haften their March. They add, that as yet the Spaniards don't fpeak a Word concerning their Defigns, but by certain Motions one may guefs that they will march towards the Country of Nice, and endeavour to force into Piedmont on that Side : The Spaniards have lately received large Remittances from Spain, and begin to be confident, that they fhall be joined by feveral French Regiments. Letter from Naples, June 25, N.S. � The Court makes no Myftery of the miferable Con-' dition to which the Kingdom of Sicily is reduced by the Plague, which has a'.ready fwept away many Thoufands in Meffina alone. Many Frigates, Gallies, and armed Barks, cruize along our Coafts, to keep off all Ships ' bound from Sicily, and fink them if they attempt to land * any Paffengers. In thefe melancholy Circumftances, Cardinal Spinelli, our Archbifhop, has publifhed a Man- * date, exhorting the Inhabitants to have Recourfe to Hea-veH, to deprecate the Wrath of God, and beg of him to * deliver Sicily, and preferve Naples from this. Scourge: ' His Eminency ordered in the faid Mandate publick Pray-' ers to be continued in all the Churches of his Diocefe for 15 Days fucceffively.

We are told from Hanover, that the Princefs Louifa, who is defigned in Marriage for the Prince Royal of Denmark, is expected there towards the Middle of next Month; that they reckon the King will be there about that Time; and are in hopes that his Royal Highnefs the Duke will be able to follow his Majefty. Several of the Men of War which were in the Weftern Ports are already arrived at Spithead, purfuant to Orders, and are immediately to be joined by others, in order to form the Squadron for the Channel Service. We hear from the Army that his Majefty is in perfect Health, after a flight Indifpofition of two Days, occafion'd by the extraordinary Fatigue he has gone through. The fame Advices mention, that Prince Charles was aftually within feven Marches ofliis Majefty ; and that both Armies having been Victorious, are in the higheft S^They write from Liege, that on the 15th Inftant, N.S. a Dutch Officer arrived there from General Colleyar, Governor of Namur, in order to fettle with the Government of that Place all that may be neeeffary for the March of two Dutch Regiments through that Principality from Namur, to Amheim, one of which will begin to march on the 18th, and the other the Day following. And they allure us from the Hague, that the 2d of next Month, N.S. is fixed by the Council of State, for the Firft Divifions of Horfe and Foot to pafs the Frontier of the Re-publick, and enter into WeftphaUa, in order to join the Allied Army in Germany, under the Command of the King of Great Britain. . /' On Saturday laft about fix o'Clock in the Afternoon, two Highwaymen, well mounted, robb'd four ehaifes, near the 11 Mile Stone, from one of which they got a Gold Watch and about 31. in Money, and made off uadifcover'd.

M.

Peterjbourg, June 13. Publijhedby Authority. Advica. lately arrived from Perfia, confirm not only the Sophi'sJRe-treat, with his Troops out of Dagtftan and the Parts adjacent to the Ruffian Frontiers, to the other Side of Derbent and farther, towards Perfia, but that he was actually marching through the Stepp, or Defart of Mungali, in the Month, of March laft. His Army was confiderably diminifhed by the extreme Cold and Want of Provifions \ A great Number of Horfes, Mules, and Camels, died alfo cn the Way, fo that not only common Soldiers, but many Officers were forced to travel on Foot, and the Sophi was obliged to ftay fome Time in the Mongalifh Defart to put his Troops in Order again. From thence he marched in the Month of April to Tewris, with his whole Army, and propofed to continue his March to the Turkifh Frontiers, and make the firft Attack upon the City of Erferum, as he was fully determined to declare War againft Turkey, and had already made fuch Preparations for it, Couriers having been difpatched into all the Provinces of the Empire, to furniih more Troops, Holes, Artillery, Provifions, and other Ne-ceffaries as foon as poffible. On the other hand, the Turks are making the neeeffary preparations; their Troops are already upon the Frontiers, both on the Side of Babylon and Erferum, and are daily reinforced. Vienna, July 6. Marfhal Broglio, when he left Dona-wert, threw all the Magazines into the Danube; he took with him feven Days Provifions, and had got four Marches of Prince Charles from Schellenberg, but the Huffars were up with his Rear, and it is thought certain here, that though he mould efcape the Grand Army, which is pur-fiiing him, he cannot carry 15000 Men back into France.'
