The King of Great-Britain, our gracious Sovcieign, * has fent Orders to raife forthwith in this Country, a fuffi-.* cient Number of Recruits fof the Hanoverian Troops in ' the Army on the Rhine : All the Bailiffs "t)f this EJeclo- * rate are likewi(js enjoined to make ftrift Search after the * Deferters that may be come back to this Country, and to * keep a watchful Eye over the Foreign Officers that may * come to lift Men privately in thefe Dominions ; which Officers are to be puniftred, without any Regard to their * Rank and "Quality, purfuant to the Decree liTued in the * -Year 1735- It is thought that Parr of our Troops will ' take up Winter Quarters on the Frontiers of this Elec- * torate. We hear from Florence, that the Tufcan Troops have received Orders to hold themfelves in Readinefs to march on-the firtl Notice ; and it is reporced, that Orders are alfo iflued to prepare Quarters for a Body of Foreign Troops, that are expected very foon in that Dutchy. They write from Rome, that the Sacred College having gone thro' with their Inquiry into the Affkir that lately .happened at Todi, between the Francifcan Friars and the * Soldiers, who are fet to guard the Avenues of that Town cn Account of the Plague, their Eminencies haye fentenced to ten Years Imprifonment the Friars that refcued by Violence one of their Fraternity our of the Soldiers Hands ; 'which Sentence has been fince confirmed by the Pope. Letters from Bruflcls fay, that the Count dz Sar is come back from the Army^of the Allies, whither be was fent in Quality of Deputy from the States of Brabant^ in order to agree with the King of Great-Britain and the Duke d'Arem-bcrg, about Ways and Means to fubfift theNumber of Trppps which is to be put into Winter-Quarters in that Province, when the Campaign >s Qvei> l'hcfe Letters add, jhat Prince Charles of Lorrain is expected at Bruflels fome time next Month, and that they are getting ready his Live-ties and Equipages as ftft as poffibie. They wrhe from Olmutz in Moravia, that Order? are come from ihe Court of Vienna, to prepare Quarters for 16000 Horfe and Foot, which are to be diftributed in that City and^at Brinn, Neuftudt, Sternberg. Freybu'gh and Schonberg ; tacy aJd, that another fmall Body ot i'roops irto be fent to Freodenthall, and that 3000 Croatians are to be canton'd in the Neighbourhood of Znaim and Tre-bitfeh. Notwithftanding the Appearance of a Rupture between Sweden and Denmark, they begin to think at Copenhagen, fince two frefli Conferences which Count Teffin has had with the Danifh Miniftry, rhat the Differences between the two Courts may be terminated in a friendly Manner, by renewing the Treaty concluded at Friederickibourg, the 3d of July, 1720; and adding thereto fome Articles relating to the prefent Junfture of Affairs. Letters from Paris^of the 6th Inftant, N.S. fay, that M. de Chavigny, the French Embaflador to the King of Portugal, who is on his Return Home, is impatiently expedled at Court, where in all Probability, he will be employed in the Miniftry, the Negotiations he has managed in almoft all the Courts of Europe, having given him a thorough Knowledge of their refpeclive Interetts. Oth�r Letters from Paris of the 13th Inftant. N.S. bring a Confirmation of the Accounts received by the laii Dutch Mail in Regard to Prince Charles of Lorrain's Attempt to pafsthe Rhine. As to the Army of the Allies, they fay, that they are of Opinion it will march towards the Mod-lie, this being a much more prudent Step, than to venture to attack Marihal Noaillei'i Army, which, is too well pofted to expect Succefs in fuch an Attempt ; for according to thefe Accounts, this Army has Landau on the Right, GuermerQveim on the Left, the River Queich before it, the Banks of which are well fortified with Redoubts, and a Wood and a Marfh behind. The fame Letters give us a Defcription of the Works at Dunkirk, which not being well put together, we refer the Reader for better Satisfaction, to the Plans of that Place lately publifhed.
