Wind E.N.E. The Anne, Parker, from Antigua, is arrived at Guernzey. LONDON. Since our lafl arrived the Mails from Flanders and France. Extracl tf a Lttttr from Hamburgh, dated Sept. 16, N.S. ' We are not a little impatient to hear what the King of * Denmark defigns to do with his great Armaments both ' by Sea and Land, becaufe we can hardly think that Swe- * den is the Objeft of his Schemes, tho' we beltev'd it in * the Beginning ; for fhould he attack that Crown now, it ' would receive powerful Succours from Ruffia, and be an ' Overmatch for the Danes; upon which Confederations * we conclude, that the Court of Copenhagen has no De- * fign to meddle with the Swedes. Neverthelefs a Report � is juft fpread that deltroys thefe Surmifej ; it is faid, that � his Danilh Majefty and a certain German Prince have � made a League together; that they are both to fall upon � Sweden, and not leave her an Inch of Territory in Gcr-� many; but whether they intend to flop there, is belt * known to themfelves.'* They write from Geneva of the ift of September, N.S. that the Infant Don Philip has joined his Army, and that it is certain his Royal Highnefs has a Patent conftituting him Generaliffimo of that and the French Army, which joins bim as Auxiliaries.

An Order has been � proclaimed at the Head of every Troop and Company, * forbidding all Soldiers, Troopers, and Dragoons, to, fell * any Corn upon Pain of Death. The 13th in the Morn- * ing Marflial Noailles went to vifit the Works made on � the other Side of the Village of Bellent, through which � the River Quiche runs, which River has been To order'd ' of late, that it can drown the Country round about in � Cafe of Need. The Marfhal has defired .the General * Officers to go now and then to the Lines, and haften the * Works as much as poffible, by encreafing the Number of * Workmen, and taking care thawhey do not loiter away * their Time. By aH the Difpofitions making here, and * in this Neighbourhood, it appears that the Army' does * not think of decamping very foon. This Morning a * large Body of Horfe filed off by our Camp, going to the * Head Quarters with a vaft Quantity of Fafcines. Mar-' fhal Noailles has ordered the Duke d'Harcourt to come ' and join him with a Body of 15,000 Men.' According to Advices from Paris of the 20th Inft. N.S. they talk of a new Augmentation of five Men per Company in the Infantry. Befides the Ships attually building in the Ports of France, the King has given Orders for buying up in Spain all the Veffels that the Spaniards are not able to equip. Two Ships belonging to Dunkirk are gone in Pur-fuit of an Englifh Privateer, which, tbey fay, has taken a French Veffel off that Port. Thefe Advices add, that they begin in Paris to perfume all the Letters from Grenoble. Other Advices from the fame Place, dated the 25th fay, that the Sardinian Embaffador had waited on the King with fome Difpatches containing the Reafons why his Sardinian Majefty cannot defert the Queen of Hungary. The Infant Don Philip was arrived at Guilleftro with his Army, in order to reconnoitre a PafTage by the Gorge of Buza: A Detachment of 2000 Miquelets, whom he feneto reconnoitre that or another Paflage (we can't tell which) have been routed by the Vaudois, who killed 200 of them: It's af-fured that if the Infant does not fucceed in his Enterprizes, he will put his Army into Winter-Quarters in the Netherlands, and make a Diverfion there next Campaign. Letters from Bafilfay, that about 700 Auitrian Defer-ters are arrived there of late, who all agree that Prince Charles's Army is in want of every thing. Advices from the Rhine (ftill by the Way of Pari*) fay that Mortality, Defertion, aud Difcord ftill reign in the Army of the Allies, and that Marfhal Noailles is neither afraid of their coming to attack him, nor of their marching to the Mofelle; for if they do the firft, there is fcarce any Probability of their fucceeding, and if they march to the Mofelle, it will- be time to put the Troops into Wintsr-Quarters, almoft as foon as they get thither. As for Prince Charles of Lorrain, he withdrew his Troops (except 1500 Men) out of the Iflar.d of Rhinmarck the 16th Initanr, N. S. and was marching up the Rhine towards Hunningen, in o/der to try his Fortune there ; Marfhal Coigny has taken the fame Route with the whole Army, except a fuf-. ficient Number of Troops left to guard his Bridges.

Yefterday the 7th, they delivered up one Gate of the Town, which the firft Company of the Grenadiers of the Regiment of Wurmbrand took PofTeffion of. This Company raifed great Admiration in the French Officers. They confefs they did not expeft to find, during a long and fatiguing War, any Men in fo good a Condition amongft us. They now make no Secret of the miferable State they were reduced to, and openly declare that their Provifions could not have lafted longer than the 13th of next Month, fo that if we had de-ferr'd granting them a Capitulation a little longer, they muft have furrendred at Difcretion.
