Letter from Drefden, Auguft 8, N.S. ' Since the Beginning of the Troubles in Bohemia, a � great many Families, chiefly Lutherans, have from Time 'to Time left that Kingdom, and fought for more peacea-4 ble Dwellings under the King's Protection ; they met ' with a kind Reception in this Electorate, in Confequence � of his Majefty's Orders to the Bailiff, of the feveral Pro-' vinces: But the Tranquility of Bohemia being at la ft re * ftored, two Deputies from the Regency of Prague, lately ' arrived here to demand thofe Families in the Name of the ' Queen of Hungary.   Count Efterhazi, Envoy Extraor- * dinary from the Court of Vienna, having prefenied the * Deputies to the King, they delivered a Letter to his Ma-Vjefty from that Princefs, requeuing that he would iffue ' Orders for fending Home her Subjects; at the fame Time ' they affured his Majefty that thofe Families fhould not be ' molefted in any Shape ; but that they might return to ' their old Habitations and live theie in ail Freedom. The ' Count de Bruhl, the Prime Minifter, has declared to 1 the Deputies, that the King, who never denied his Pro- * tection when he could lawfully grant it, had found that * thofe Families had very juft Reafonsfor feeking an Affy-' lum in his Dominions ; that it was ufual to claim none ' but Subjects guilty of capital Crimes, which was not the ' Cafe of thofe People ; and therefore, that he could not   one of the Carpenters belonging to Greenwich Hofpital.

A few Days fince died, at his Houfe in Lawrence Pount* ney Lane, Mr. ReneU; a wealthy Hamburgh Merchant; a Gentleman much efteem'd by his Acquaintance. On Wednefday laft the C roner's Inqueft fat on the Body of Mr. Smith, whokilPd himfelf at a Houfe in Ormond-ftreet on Monday laft, and brought In their Verdifi Lunacy. -It appears, that the Gentleman at whofe Houfe he committed the Fact, had for a long Tinne been a generous Benefactor to him; notwithftanding which he us'd to tell his Acquaintance, that he fhould certainly die for want of Victuals, &c. and going to the Houfe aforefaid, he enquir'd for the faid Gentleman, who was not at home, whereupon he fat down in the Parlour, and being left alone, he immediately fnatch'd up a Knife, ftabb'd himfelf in three Places, and died in a few Minutes. On Wednefday laft feveral Robberies were committed on Honflow-Heath, by three Highwaymea very well mounted, who made a very handfome Collection ; but behaved extremely well, and feem'd to have but very lately engaged in the Bufinefs.
