Extras of a letter fr�m Turin, Ju'y 7, N.S. * We hear from Savoy, that the Spaniaids expe& every * Day the firft Batallion of the Militia raifed in Catiionia, * and in the mean time, have detached 19 Barallions to- * wards the Valley of Lizeraand Cor flans j but after the ' Jun&ion of the Troops coming from Lombardy, the * King's Army will be fuperior to the Spaniards ; fo that ' we begin to think their Defign of penetrating into Italy * impracticable.    Neverthelefs, feveral Forts have been * lately taifed between Villafranca and the Valley of Aofte; 4 a Line is alfo drawn by that Valley, Suza, Saluces and 1 Demont ; and we continue to take as many Precautions, ' as if we were really inferior in Number to the Spa. 4 niards.' Letters from Bologna fay, that Orders are iffued for getting Etapes for the Auftrian Troops that are expe&ed there from the Modeneze, but that it was not yet certain what Day thofe Troops would arrive ; that the Infantry of the Spanifh Army under the Duke of Modena is almoft recruited, by Levies made in the Kingdom of Naples and the EcclefiaiHck State ; but that both Armies ftill continued in the feme Polls. ' They write from Leghorn, that they have felt two Shocks of Earthquake, at which they are exceedily al-larmed, tho' the Damage done is but inconsiderable, be-caufe the laS great Earthquake is ftill frelh in their Memories, and they look upon this as a very bad Prefage, efpe-cially as they are in fo much Danger of the PefUIence being brought among them. Letter from Hanover, dated July 16, N.S. * The Emperor's Minifter at this Court gives out, that 1 his Matter is very tmuch inclined to give Ear to an Ac-' commodation, but yet without tying himfelf down in any * Articles that may prejudice France.   It is probable, * however, that his Imperial Majefty will make no Propo-' falsof Peace, until it appears whether the Junction of � the two French Armies will give a new Turn to his Af-4 fairs. We are affured, that the Duke de Noailles has ' full Powers to enter into a Negotiation, and that he made ' fome Overtures on this Head in his laft Conferences with � the Emperor, at which Prince William of Hefle Gaffe! * was defired to be prefent; but it is doubted, whether th� * Propofals made by the French General were of fuch a � Nature as to accelerate a Peace.' Letters from Ratifbon fay, that the Siege of Straubin-gen is pufhed on with a great deal of Vigour, and that the Auitrians have brought fome Hundreds of Peafants from Bavaria and the Upper Palatinate, to be employed in making Fafcines, &c * From Mentz they tell us, that Marfhal Noailles's whole Army is on this Side of the Rhine; and that Marfhal Brog-lio's Army is reduced to i7ooo|Men, having loft 7300 Men, between Ingolftadt and Spire; they reckon that 21 �3 were taken Prifoners, and that the reft were either killed or died of their Wounds on the Route.

They write from the Hague of the 24th Inftant, N.S. that Count Mauritius of Naflau fet oat that Day for Doef-burgh, which is to be the General Rendezvous of the Dutch Troops defigned as Auxiliaries to the Queen of Hungary, and that thefe Forces will arrive at Munfter the 11 th of next Month at fartheft, where they are to be received by. her Hungarian Majefty's Commiflaries.

From Parma we have Advice, that (he Courier who carried thither the Orders for four Regiments* of Piedmonteze Cavalry to march forthwith for Piedmont, like wife charged them ftridUy, in the King's Name, not to halt on the Route 'till they arrived on his Territories. Several privare Letters from "Germany confirm the Accounts, that the French are determin'd to fecure themfe'ves behmdtkeir Lines, oft this fide of the Rhine,"as they have formerly done $ and that, confequently, if the Allies will fight them, they rmiit tike fome Pains for it.--Strange! that the Troops of the Grand Monarch, who fo lately intended to give Laws to the Queen of Hungary, from the Walls of Vienna, fliouW be now fought after by die Troops they fp much defpis'd.

S   I   R, IWas not a little pleafed with a Paragraph I faw in your Paper fome Time fince, which gives an Account of the wife and laudable Proceedings of the Magiftrates of the City of Edinburgh, in relation to their juft and prudent Management of their Poor. It has long been Matter of great Wonder and Surprize to me, that this large and populous City of London, that in moft other Things is fo well regulated� flwu'd be fo long fo much infefted with fuch Swarms of Beggars about the Streets, and every Part thereof, fo that they area common Nufance to the reft of his Majefty's Liege People going a-bout their lawful Occafions, and this notwithstanding fo many good and wholfome Laws provided as a Cure for this great Evil. An Evil, which tho' every one fo juftly complains of, yet few take proper Steps towards applying the Remedy provided, agreeable to the old Proverb, * That what is � every Body's Bufinefs is no Body's:' But by this laudab'e Procedure of the City of Edinburgh, a Method is plainly chalked out that will do the BuGriHs effectually, will confine the golden Stream of Charity to its proper Channel, occafion the real Objects thereof to be diftinguifh'd from the numerous Impoftors, and to be much better taken care of, and provided for. I rejoice to fee fo good an Example fet, and hope it will be imitated in the fame, or fome other Manner, by the Le-giflature, or the Magiftrates of this great and opulent City The many diTagreeable Objects ydo meet with almoft in every Street are docking to all, and may be very prejudicial to.many.      .   1   ' ' ' !  ; ' ThereVnone, that is more moved with the Bowels of Pitf and Compaffion for the Sufferings, Wants, and Calamities of his Fellows-Creatures, nor none that ft mote inclined to have proper Relief given in a proper Manner to fuch ai' are really Objects of Charity, than, Tour Humble Servants Philanthropes. ........ ... -..- - High Water this Day at London-Bridge at 57 Mi'-, notes after it.
