   London Daily Post And General Advertiser (Newspaper) - November 7, 1743, London, Middlesex                                The London I)aily Poft, and General Advertifer. N-umb. 28.01. M O N D A Y,   NjOv e m b e r 7,   i743� 1 Deal, November 5. RRIVED the Carter, Malbon, from Virginia ; Sally, Lane; and Pheenix, --, from ditto; the Pearl, Beatfod, from Plymouth. Remain the Men of War, and the Outward-bound, as mentioned in my laft. Wind Weft. LONDON. Y^flerday arrived two Mails from France. According to Letters from Paris of the 8th Inftant, N.S. Marfbal Coigny has broke up his Army ; Part of the ln-;fahtry lie in Huts on the Banks of the Rhine, and the reft .'are cantoned ; all the Cavalry are in Quarters, and Dragoons are cantoned round about every Poft.. The Auftriana quitted, on the 26th of laft Month, N.S. the Camp which tbey had before Old Brifac, having left in that Town only 1x00 Huflars and Pandours to level the Hill and the Fortifications on it: They have left five Regiments at Fribourg, to demoliih.the Fortifications of that Place.  The Officers of Marfhal Coigny's Army arrive daily at Paris. Lieutenant peneral d' Herouville, late Commandant of Egra, is fet put from Pilfen on his Return to France, and as many of the .Officers of that Garrifon as demanded Paflportsto return home on their Parole, have had their Requeft granted : A� .for the reft of the Garrifon, they have been fent away to Brinn in Moravia. Advices from Paris of the 13th Inftant, N.S. allure us, that 30 French Batallions are to be fent irfto Dauphine to join thofe that are actually there, after which they are to be all embarked for Italy on Board the King's Ships. On that, other Hand they tell us, that the Count de Montijo is charged with a Plan of Pacification between the Courts of London and Madrid, which is to be laid before the Parliament as foon as his Majefty comes over : That they hope this Plan will have the defired Effett, becaufe they think Spain will readily accept it, inafmuch as the King of the Two Sicilies's Affairs are in a precarious Condition, it being impoflible for the Infant Don Philip's Army to join him, and the Kingdom of Naples being threatned with an Inva-fion by Prince Lobkowitz, whole Army grows ftronger e-ery Day. They alfo tell us, that the Count de Grunnes is on his Departutefor Germany, with a Plan for an Accommodation between theHoufes of Anftria and Bavaria. Letters from Hambonrg fay, that as fpon as the Marquis dela Chetardie arrived there he received the Collar of the Order of the Holy Ghbft by the Hands of the French Mi-nifter in that City, and the next Day (which was the 25th of laft Month, N.S ) he proceeded on his Voyage to Pe-terfburg. Before his Excellency left Paris, the King .promoted him to the Rank of Major-General, and gave him leave to fell his Regiment to whomfoever he thinks fit: His moft Chriftian Majefty alfo delivered to him a Latter for the Czarina, written with his own Hand, wherein he declares that he will ratify all that the Marquis {hall agree upon with that Princefs. The reft of our Advices from Paris are, that Marfhal Noailles is expefted there by the 25th, N.S. that Marftial Coigny is preparing to return thither, and that the Count de Saxe, who was dangeroufly ill at Straibourg, is perfectly recovered. They write from Naples of Oftober 8, that a Convoy of ten Tartans were anchor'd at that Port from Apuglia, with 40,000 Tomoli's of Corn, to fill up the publick Magazines of that City. The Accounts there from Medina and Reggio continue favourable; the Sicknefs at thofe Places is vaftly declined, and we expect every Poft to have the Satisfaction to hear of its being quite over. Great Care is taken'for the Recovery of the few remaining Sick in the neighbouring Villages. By the lateft Letters from Bologna we are informed, that on the 5th ult. Prince Lobkowitz had halted with his Army, confifting, 'tis faid, of about 18000 Man, in the Neighbourhood of that City, and diftributed the Foot a-mongft the Convents, arid extended the Horfe on the great Road towards St. Lazzero, Idice, and Caftle St. Pietro, Detachments of which arc advanced as far as Imola a> d Faenza, and another of Sclavonians, and Horfe, polled at Pianoro and Scarica L'Afino, to fecure the Pafiages of Tuf-_ cany. Prince Xobcowitz has fixed his Head Quarters at Sr. Michele in Bofco: He has a Train of Field and Battery Camion j twelve of the largeft he lately received from Kjtantua, befides four Mortars, and a large Quantity of '. Ammunition and Military Stores. His Army is fupplied tvith Proyifions out of the large Magazine laid up by the Government of Bologna, valued at about One Million of Crowns. Qn the 5th Prince Lobcowitz was complimented by a Deputation 00 the Part of the Senate, and preferred with the ufual Prefent of Eatables. On the 10th he gave an Entertainment at his Head Quarters to a Party of Ladies and Noblemen of Bologna : And on the 12th in the Evening another, waireturned to him by the Count Caprara. � His Majefty's Ship the Prince of Orange, Captain Sta-'pleton, arrived at Madeira the 14th of October, N.S. with five Sail of Merchant Ships uuder his Convoy, and all fail'd again the 17th following- for Jamaica. The' Recovery, Hugh Swift, .Cpmander, bound from Jamaica to Lpndon, laden with Sugars and-Cotton, .was, taken on the 14th of Oftober, by a Spanifh Privateer with fix Guns and 100 Men on board, 50 Leagues from the Lizard, in Latitude 49, 20 Minutes. The Spanifh Privateer left fix Englifh Sailors and the Captain on board her, and ordered her toBilbpa; but fhe was driven, by foul Weather,- to Calais, where fhe was ftrandedy and the Ship and Cargpe loft. The Privateer belong'd to-Bilboa, and is Commanded by Don Pedro Lacofto. On Friday came on, at the Court of KingVBepch at Weftminfter, a Trial at Bar between Sir Watkin Williams Wynne, Bart. Member of Parliament for the County of Denbigh, Phintiff; and William Myddleton, Efq; late Sheriff for the fame County, Defendant, for double Damages, upon./the Statute of the 7th and 8th of K.
