Letters from Peterfburgh take Notice of the Court's great .Care in, providing againft any unfbrefeen Event> by ordering all the Frontier Towns in the Ukrain to be put in a Pofture of Defence/ notwithstanding the Turk 11 fo likely" to have his Hands full of the Perfkn War. From Vienna, we have the Queen of Hungary's Anfwer to the' Declaration made to the Dyet at Francfort, by the French Minifter on the 26th of July laft, the Subftance of which is as follows; � That the Declaration in Queftion * tends, only to perplex the QueenV Affairs, and deprive ' her of the Affiftance of her Allies, by artfully infinuating � that the Motives for lending that Affiftance. fubfift no Ion-' ger. That it is evident, that the Elector of Bavaria, � confidering the State of his Affairs, cannot be looked � upon as Neuter in his own Caufe., That the French * would fain perfuade Europe, that the Queen cannot any * longer carry on the War defeiifively, without proclaim-' ing it in due Form ; becaufe, feeing this would give a � jaewTurn to Affairs, they hoped to be able to prevail � with the Queen's Allies to withdraw their Succours. * That it is plainly proved by the.ableft Civilians, that a ' War unjoftly begun does not ceafe to be defenfive, when, � after the Aggreffbr's firft'Attacks are baffled, the Party � attacked purfues him into his own Country, ;in order to * Kihde.r him from forming new Ehterprizes. That the ' Treaties between her Majefty and'her Allies' do not only ' oblige them to fend the Succours ftipulated, but alfo to �' continue furnifhing them 'tili'.Peace is quite .fettled, and * the Party injured has obtained fuitable Satisfaction for the < Damage he has fuftained with fufficient Security againft * the, like hereafter. . That the Defign of the Declaration ' made at Francfort by. the "French Minifter, is to gain 4 Time-for putting themfelves in a Condition to execute the � Schemes concerted.: That - with.tbic View they-endea- * vour to dart Doubis and Difficulties, to the End that the * Seafon may be fpent in uhneceffary Difquifitions, and the � Operations of the victorious" Annies*thereby fufpehded. * That in Regard to the Mediation of the Empire, there is * fd iittle Likelihood of its ever being employed to the. Pur-' pofe, that on the contrary, .one ought tpfear.it would ' give Rife to inteftine DivifionSj which might end in the � total Ruin of the Germanick Body. That it is well " enoUgh known, that this Mediation, acording to the firft * Plan formed of it, was' to have been fet up by Force of * Arms; which would have brought the Houfe of Auftria � to th^Pafs of accepting the Terms that France wanted to * ijnpofe upon it.  That the faid Mediation mull produce * one of thefe two Things, apeace without France, or one � wherein (he fhould be included : That in the firft Cafe, � it was not to be expected that France would be fo well * fatisfied as fhe infinuar.es in the Declaration of the 26th of * July ; and if fhe were included in the Peace, nothing < could be more fatal to the'Queen in particular and the � Empire in general.' In Conclufion the Court of Vienna infills more ftrenuoufly than ever on the Neceffity of her Allies joining their Troops to hers, in Order to profecute the War with Vigour. Letter from Francfort, dated Sept. 15, N.S. * As fome Gazettes and ether publick Papers have given ' o.ut, without' any Grounds, that the Emperor far from ' being inclined to facilitate an Accommodation between � him arid the Queen of Hungary, continues to reject the � reafonable Propofals that were made him to that End, we � think it our Duty to undeceive thepoblick in this in-' � fiance. The pacifick Intentions, wherein his Imperial � Majefty conftantly perfifts, in order to reftbre the Tran-� quiUty of � the Empire and reconcile himfelf with her ' Hungarian Majefty, have been, amply demonftrated by * hisCondu'&.'in Regard to thewithdrawing the French 4 Trqpp* from Bavaria and fronLtbenceout of the Empire. � It then lay; in his Imperial Majefty's Power to join his * Troops tdM'rfhal Broglio'slArmy,'andmaintain his 4 Rights, by putting himfelf at the Head of*ailthe French � Troops, when^ QjuntSecfcendorffrerired-intd'Swabia, in 4 hopes that he fhould. thereby put an End to Hoftilities. � The Emperor's Tendernefs for the-Empire prevailed over ' his own Interefts, fo'foon as he found that they'could not � bfe inaifitatned-without^fp^ding'tKe Flame" of War all ' over the Empire.. This Conduct is fo notorious and pal-� pable, that one need not take/any Tainsto fet it in a clearer Light: Therefore, .to be as brief as poffible, we fhallonly *' add, that the' moft" equitable Propofals have been made �: on the Part of the'Emperor: They exceeded any Thing 4 that could be expected' or required ; nay, the Renuncia-"tionof the indifputable Rights of the^Houfe of Bavaria 4~ made part of them ; but all produced nothing elfe but the r Endeavours ufed by; fome.Princes, who had the Welfare *; of thepmpire at Hearty to adjnff the Differences between � the Emperor and the Queen of Hungaty.. ; Letters from Grenoble of the 4th Inft: N;S. fay, that the whole Spanifh Army under Don Philip: had juft paffed by that City, in full March for Piedmont. '  ExtraS of a Letter from'Brujjeh, Sept. 20, N.S. * �Thje';'good.News of* the Surrender of "the important ' Town ofEgra, whofe Garrifon, confifting of 2440 Men, *' are madfrPrifbners'of War, and the Capitulation of Ingol-' ftadt which is to be delivered up the ift of next Month,  ueen of Hungary, from the Camp at Hdcbftet near OldBr'tfac, on the $tb of September 1743, N.S. YO U R Majefty will already have been informed by my laft, of the Preparations I have all along caufed to be made for palling the Rhine, efpecially by affembling VefTels "provided with ail Neceffaries, drawing the Artillery out of Fribourg,- and putting it in the neceffiry Condition for afling". Every Thing being in Readinefs, I drew up Directions, diftributed them to the Generals,, and in the t Night between the 3d and 4th Inftant, I proceeded to the Execution of my Defign. I had already, on the 3d at Eight in the Evening, fent the Pandours and Croats I had : with me over the R hine in Pontoons and fmall Craft, with fo good Succefs, that they attacked the firft Redoubts of the Enemy, made themfelves' Matters of "them, and put all thofe that were in them to the Sword : They were followed by the Grenadier Companies, who likewifegot over with Succefs. At Eleven at Night a Beginning was made of laying the Bridge, during which the Infantry was tran-fported, fo that- 12 Batallions were fucceffively landed.' The Huffars, Carabineers/and Horfe Grenadier Companies were intended alfo to be tranfported ; but for want of Floats, Rafts, and other proper Bottoms, it was neceffary to defer it 'till, the finifhing of the Bridge. This it was hoped would be ready in Four Hours Time, but it took cp unfortunately Fourteen inftead of Four; which Delay was. occafioned, firft, by the forting and joining together proper Materials, which required mbre'Labour than was thought; fecondly, there were no Anchors of a- proper Size and Weight at hand ) but,laft of all, the greateft Obftacle proceeded from the Bottom of the River being full of Rocks, fo that the Anchors could not fo foon lay hold, or be fixed, and there were even 10 of them loft on this Occafion. Thefe Delays gave Time to the Enemy to draw together from all Parts, to poll themfelves behind the Morafs call'd Grifs Wajfer, and to reinforce the Head of their Bridge there ; they alfo got the Advantage of a Piece of Ground, upon which the Cavalry could not form itfelf and aft, it being furrounded with Bufhes, in which were Morafles, Holes, and Ditches.. All this would not have hindered the Paifing a fufficient Number of Cavalry over the Bridge, the attacking the Enemy and the. Head of their Bridge, and diflodging them ; but I was obliged to lay this Scheme afide, upon receiving Advice from Prince Waldeck, who was to have paffed the Rhine at the fame Time near Rhine-weiler, that though the firft Tranfports of Soldiers had fuc-ceeded very well, and the Enemies Redoubts being taken, yet a-thick Fog anting obltrudled the Sight fo, that the Men who were already got on the other Side of the Rhine, could not be feconded by our Batteries on this Side ; thus the Enemy being fuperior in Number, retook their Redoubts ; and the Reinforcements could not land at the proper Places by Reafon of the Fog, but fell in with the Enemy's Poft, which occafioned bnfk Skirmifhes; the Enemy fired hard upon thofe that followed, particularly upon the Watermen,, many of Whom were killed and wounded to a-bout 100 Men ; of the regular Forces we had about 100 Croats, and 300 others killed, wounded, or otherwife loft, and among them feveral Officers. The Enemy's Lofs was no lefs confiderable, (for the Soldiers on their Side defended themfelves.with great Bravery) but according to Prince Walfleck's Report, amounts to 800 Men. In my Attack andfinflhinfe^fie Bridge, I only loft 16 or 20 Pandours, Ooatians, br Grenadiers, and only one Captain of Pandours. In the Redoubts abovementioned taken by the Pandours, upwards of 60 Enemies were cut off. Thus the Paflage attempted by Prince Waldeck mifcarried j" however I have ftill Hopes-to carry my Point on my Side, and ffaa.ll maintain the Poft I, have taken on the other Side, by a . good Head.of a Bridge, which I am actually raifing. The rich Spanifh Prize taken by the Monmouth, came up the River Yefferday to Deptford. The Macfarlane, Hamilton, from Glafgow to Cork and Jamaica,, is taken and carried into Cuba: - .
