' The Emperor has fent the following Declaration to � divers Courts in the Empire, in Regard to the late Move- * merits of the French Troops in toe Neighbourhood of � Hunninguen. '* His Imperial M^jefly hearing that the Motions made �' by fome thoufands of French Troops on the Side of Hiui-�' ninguen begin to make People uneafy in feveral Parts of ,c Germany, and being at the fame time informed of the *' true Defign of thefe Motions, he haitens to diffipate the **. Ideas of thofe who may, on fuch an Occafion, have ap-�� prehended fome Enterprize prejudicial to theRepofe of Germany. The Crown of France had no ether Aim, in � affembling a Body of Troops in the Neighbourhood of �� Hunninguen, bat to re-eftablifli a Fort which the for-�' merly had there, and cover it with a Head of a Bridge, �� in order to fecure the Inhabitants of Alface from the En- terprizes and Incuriions that may be made by the Auftrian Troops on that Side next Spring, in Cafe a Peace cannot �� .be brought about in the Empire this Winter. : His Im-�� �rial Majefty has nothing more at Heart .than to bring " Things to fa happy a Period j. and i$. at tie fame Time " very "well perfuaded, that the Crown of France is in the' �� fame Difpofuions, and that fhe never will take any Steps �' that can give the States of the Empire the leafl: room to � beoneafy, &c." V This Declaration.has entirely cornpofpd thofe who were: � alarmed at the repeated Accounts; from Brifgaa.   All * thefe Accounts came from Friboiirg, whereGerieral Dam-' nitz had received from the 12th Inftanf to the 16th, Ad-' * vices, which left no room to doubt that the French would ' make fotne Attempt upon the Places which the Houfe of � Auftria holds in the Black Foreft and Brifgau : But fince * that Time, their Alarms have been quite diffipated at � Fribourg, by the pofitive Intelligence they received, that ' molt of the French Troops bad tepaffed the Rhine. Their * Uneafinefs at Brifach was not Iefs, and we may fay that it � is not yet quite diffipated, becaufe of ? the Vicinity of.the � Troops that have aflem bled in the Iflandof Reinach, and* * are to canton there,until they have finifhed the Forts be-� gun in that Ifland. The Panick occafipned by the Mo-' tions of the French made the People fwell considerably � the Train of Artillery deftined for thefe Forts as well as � for that which they are rebuilding near Hunninguen : � They made that Train amount to 180 Pieces of Cannon �.and Mortars, whereas it now appears, that at moft, there * wereTjut 40, including a few Field Pieces fent to Before.' . j According to fome Advices from Warfaw, of the 19th of November, N.S.
