LONDON. yefterday arrived the Mall from France and Flanders. Letters from Baden fay, that the Huflars of Prince Charles of Lorrain's Army begin to appear on the Banks of the Rhine �-that Neighbourhood ; but that the French have had the*Precaution to drag afbore all the Boats that ferved for tranfporting their Provifiuns, led the Auftruns Ihonld make ufe of them to pafs the River : According to thefe Letters, it appeared that Prince Charles intended to march towards Fribourg, From Berlin they write, &at the Regiments which were inarching to Seutzen, in order to form a Camp therej have received Orders to return to their old Quarters, but as yet they cannot guefs the Reafon of it $ however, they add, that his Pruffian Majefty intends to take a Journey to We-fel, from whence he will go to Hanover, in order to have an Interview there with the King of Great-Britain. Letters from Hanau take notice, that the Day Prince Charles of Lorrain arrived there, the Generals were obliged to order the Officers to keep with their refpe&ive Corps, otherwife cot a Man had. (laid in the Camp, fo eager were the Soldiers to fee a Prince who is as much beloved and admired by his own Troops, as he is dreaded by his Enemies. According to Advices from Drefden, an Augmentation of 10,000 Men is to be made in the Crown Army of Poland, and Levies are actually making for that purpofe. A Report prevails again, that his Politb Majefty is to furnifh the King of Great-Britain with a Body of 20,000 Men; but upon what Conditions, they don't tell us: However they are pofitive, that, the Saxon Army will march e'er long, becaufe the Officers are actually getting ready their Field Equipages, and the Generals making Intereft to be employed this Campaign. From Bafiia they tell us, that the Affairs of Corfica are fn a fair Way of being accommodated ; that M.

The Commiflary has Ukewife appointed a General Affembly to be held, wherein all other Differences between the Repub-lick and the Coriicans are to be finally determined. Some Letters from Chamberry, which come by the Way of Genoa, fey that the Infant Don Philip has not yet begun his Matcto for "Piedmont, tho* he has received adl his Reinforcements from Catalonia ; the Reafon of which is, that the Roads,, which are always bad enough, have been quite fpoiled. by the late heavy Rains. From Lombardy they write, that the Duke of Modena has declared tnat he will march �'er long to recover his , , Dominiops V whether this be true or not, it is certain that' the Spanrards have marked out a new Camp for themfelves between Cefeno-and Forli, and that the Army will fpee-dUy march thither from Rimini.
