From Fano we have Advice, that the Spaniards are now entirely Mailers of Pefaro and the Forts adjacent, and are adding new Works to them as well as to the Fortifications of Civita Caftellana : The Auftrian Army was ftill at Rimini, and it could not be gathered from the Difpofitions making by Prince Lobkowitz, that he really intended to attack the Spaniards.

According to Advices from Fribourg, the Auftrian Troops that were in the Black Foreft and the Places adjacent, are marching back towards the:Rhine,'in order to occupy the Polls they held at the Clofe of the Campaign ; which Precautions have been judged neceffary, becaufe the French threaten to pafs the Rhine again very fpeedily, and that fome of the Emperor's Troops are already come to take up Winter Quarters within 5 Leagues of Fribourg. From Bafil they write, that in Proportion as the French bring forward their Works oa the other Side of the Rhine, more Troops are fent over that River ; and that a large Body of them will e'er lone march up to Old Brifack, and endeavour to make themfelves Matters of that Town.
