They tell us likewife, that Count Seckendorff has writ to General Berenclau, that if the French evacuate Ingolftadt, he thinks the Imperial Troops ought to be put in Poffeffion of it: They even allure us, that his Excellency is adlually marching up to'the Town at the Head of 14,000 Men, and that General Berenclau has, thereupon changed the Pofition of his Camp, and is actually intrenching hirafelf: The Auftrian General has but 18,000 Men, the greateft Part of which are irregular Troops.; We alfo hear, that the Inhabitants of Stadt-am-hoff and Straubingen have been dif-armed, and a Reinforcement of 500 Men fent to the Garrifon of the latter Place; the Reafons of which Precautions appear in the following Letter from an Auftrian Officer at Straubingen, dated the 7th Inftant, N.S. We had like to have Sicilian Vefpers here the other ' Day. The Inhabitants, whom we uie no worfe than is ' justifiable by the Laws of War, as the Bavarians did in the Queen's Territories when they had the upper hand, * formed a Defign to get rid of us all in one Night, and had taken proper Meafures to fucceed in it. Happily for ' us that the Plot. was difcovered; the principal Perfons ' concerned have been taken up, except two that have ' made their Efcape. Upon their Examination they urged ' in their Defence, that their Affeftion for the Houfe of 'Bavaria moved them to this Confpiracy ; but as we are ' of Opinion that this Affection ought to be ruled by Rea- * fon and Decency, they are likely to. fuffer feverely for ' their Loyalty to their old Matters.' From Worms we hear, that the Army of the Allies was to begin its March that Day towards Franckendal. Letters from Worms, Francfort and Mentz fay, that the Earl of Stair is actually fet out on his Return to England ; the Caufe of which is variously talk'd of.

Prince Charles of Lorrain has fent.an .Order, by the Poft, to the Inhabitants of Colmar to pay Contributions. They write from Scheleftadt, that they take all poffible Meafures to difpuce the Paffage of the Rhine, with the Auftrians ; that among the Prifoners taken in the Action of the 4th rnftant, N.S. there were but 17 not wounded; that the Prince of Waldeck, who led on the Auftrians, is among the Prifoners; that Prince Charles continues to intrench his Troops in the Ifland of Rhinmarck ; that the 6th Inftant at Night, the French planted feme Batteries to derend their Bridge of Communication with that Ifland, and that they hoped the Vigi'ance and Prudence of Marfhal Coigny, who ha: always timely Notice of the Enemy's Motions, will frultrate all their Attempts. They alfo give us the following odd Story from Paris, which, however, they fay, wants Confirmation.-Prince Charles it feems, had defired Leave of the Swifs Cantons to fend through their Territories a Convoy of 60 covered Waggons, laden with Provisions and Warlike Stores; upon which he received for Anfwer, that no Troops, nor Artillery, nor Warlike Stores fhould pafs through Swifferland, without the unanimous Content of the Helvetick Body ; and then we are told, that thefe Waggons having been fearched, 30 armed Grenadiers were found in each of them, and that they had Inftructions to ftrike a Blow cunningly on this Side of the Rhine, in order to facilitate the Paflage of Prince Charles.
