LONDON. Yefterday arrived the Mails from Flanders and Holland. ExtraS of a Letter from Rome, dated Sept. 14, N.S.  The Englilh Men of War that came to Civita Vechia, * were obliged to fheer off, upon the Governor's declaring ' to them, that he could not poffibly let them come into the Harbour 'till they Aould have perform'd Qparantain. * However, they have appeared again within thele few ' Days, and their Commodore having picked ip a Neapo-*. litan Felucca in his Way,  fent the Matter of it to the * Governor with a Letter, and ftriclly charged him to bring * back an Anf* er.   That Letter contains a Proteft again a 1 * that has been done, or may be done hereafter, in Favour of ' the SpaniJh Xebeques that lately landed fome Artillery and warlike Stores for Count Gage's Army i after which * the Commodore declares, that if his Proteft is not re-garded, he will, purfuant to his Orders, treat as Enemies, *' all the Ships that may fall in bis Way. In Confequence f of this Menace, we have difarmed two Gallies, in order .* to reinforce the Garrifon of Civita Vecchia; Chains have * alfo been laid acrofs the Mouth of the Harbour, for fear * any Bilander or Fire-Ship would flip in.

Yet, they feem to be not a little alarmed at the Efcape of fome Inhabitants of the Village 'near Reggio,  it being feared that they may carry the . Plague elfewhere, efpecially as fome of them were found to " befick when they got to their Journey's End : This Incident has made Count Mahoni alter the Di/pofition of the firll Line, that he may extend it more or left as he fliall fee ' Occifibn, and fo block np entirely all the Places that aie either infefled, or fufpecled to befo. Our Advices from the French Camp at Weiffembourg,  dated Sept. 25, N.S. run 'verbatim thus.--The Works, that were laid afide the 19th Inftant, were again taken in Hand the 23d. Part of the Army is here, and the other Part at Lauterbourg. The 15000 Men, of which it con-fifts, are going to Hunninguen. that they may be nearer at : Hand to make Head againft the fmall Parties of Prince Charles's Army, which has juft been reinforced with 15000 : Men. The 23d Inftant fevcral Brigades began their March from this Neighbourhood, in order to line the Banks of the Rhine at Benheim and Fort Louis.   Then they add, by \ Way of Poftfcript, that they are at the Eve of a general AQion. .. Extras of a Letter from the Duke of dr embergs Head-Quarters near Spire, dated Sept. z8, N.S. ' After three Days marching, the Army of the Allies * arrived Yellerday in four Columns in the Neighbourhood � of this City from Worms.    We reft ourfelves To-day, \ * and as yet do not know whether we (hall advance further * To-morrow: The Ovens at Spire and Heidelbourg are   employed in baking Bread for the Troops. We have , � certain "Advice that Major General Mentzel having been  * detached with 600 Huflars for Sarre Loui�, paffed by . � Neuftat, and when he had got within a certain Diftance * of Landau, he made Part of the Huflars difmount, with * a DeGgn to fet Fire in the Night to a large Magazine of ' Hay, Straw and Oats which is in the Out-works of that   Place-: They had the good Fortune to paft by fiveCcn-: '* tintls without being perceived ; but when they came.to  ;* the 6th, who flood within J5 or 16 Paces of the Maga-  *' g'ne> a D g by his barking gave the Alarm to the E-. � nemy.  It being a very dark Night, the brave Mentzel *� unluckily fell into a Ditch, and hurt- his Leg > but his � Huflars having taken him our, carried him on their ; ' Shoulders out of the Works.from whence he made a Re- * treat in excellent Order, without lofing a Man. Being1 � arrived at Neuftadt, be got his Leg dreffed, and then/ * polled away to Kayzerlautern, where we reckon he isal- * ready arrived.

NS. fay, that General Keith had fet fail with 30 Gallies, in vrder to pro-tec! the Swedes againft Denmark : This General is like-wife to command the Body of 15000 Men which the Em-prefs furaimes to the Crown of Sweden.

In confequence of this Sentence they were brought out to the Place of Execution, where every thing was got ready for their Exit ; but juft as the Executioner was going to perform his Office, a Declaration of the Emprefs was read to the Criminals, who were 25 in all, importing that her Imperial Majefly granted theni their Lives, and contented herfelf with banilhing them to Siberia for the Remainder of their Days. According. to Advices from Copenhagen the King of Denmark is willing enough to accept the good Offices of the Maritime Powers, for adjulting the Differences between him and Sweden, provided they procure him proper Satisfaction for the Subject of tbefe Differences; and his Danifli Majefty infills the more on fuch Satisfaction, becaufe he thinks the great Armaments he made during the Congrefs at Abo, did not a little contribute to procure for the Swedes advantageous Terms from Ruflia.

By Letters from Milan we hear, that Prince Lobkowitz is gone to Turin, to fettle the Operations of the Campaign with the King of Sardinia. Tbe-Spaniw Army under Count Gage is perpetuaily-ta Motion, without flirting far ; fo that it does not yet appear whether it is defigned for the Dutchy of Modena, or for an Fxpedition jnto Tufcany.
