Wind W.N.W. The Charles-Town, Whitburne, from Oporto, is arrived at Dartmouth. - LONDON. Since our laft arrived the Mails from France and Flanders. ExtraS of a Letterfrom Vienna, Dec. 4, N.S. * It appears by fome private Letters from Peterfburgh, that the Vindication of the Marquis de Botta has pre-� vailed there over the Charge brought againft him by his * Enemies. They add, that the Emprefe having acknow-� ledged it to be'Satisfactory, her Imperial Majeity declar'd 4 to the Queen's Refident, that flie would not depart from � the Engagements ftie had contracted with our Court, and ' that fee is even ready to renew them �n the fame Foot- ,| �* ing, if required.' We have Advice from St. Maloe, that the Merchants of that City are equipping a great many Veflels with all poilible Diligence, in hopes of being quickly allowed to follow' their old Trade. They write from Paris, that a Regiment of Foot is raiding in Poland for the French King's Service, the Colonel of which is a Saxon ; that they are going to raife two new Regiments of Huflars, which will make in all fix Regiments, , each confuting of 600 Men , that the)' are adding a Hornwork, and fome other Works to the Fortrefs of Ha-geriau ; and that the Court is preparing to fend Succours to the Spaniards in Italy and Dauphiny. They alfo aflure %v, that M. Grandville, Lieutenant General, is fent in Exile to Saumur, for the Capitulation of Ingolftadt. We hear from Drefden, that the Negotiations fet on foot between their Polifli and Hungarian Majefties, relate to the Interefts of the King of the Two Sicilies, as well es to thofe of the Courts of Vienna and Drefden. They write from Copenhagen, that the 1 ith Inft. N.S. 5vas fixed for the Publick Entry of her Royal Highnefs the Princefs Louifa into that City ; and that her Highnefs's Affability and gracious Difpofition has filled every one with 3 mod agreeable Surprize, as well as with the higheit Satisfaction. They write from Lifbon, that a Spanifh Nobleman was arrived there, with the Character of Ambaflador, who had hired a Ship to tranfport himfelf, his Attendants and Baggage. It was given out that he meant to go to Denmark; But from certain Circumftances, the Jnquifitive' were of Opinion, that he did not intend a Voyage quite fo far to the North. They have arretted at Genoa a Greek, who, for fix &er,uins, forged a Patent of Health for the Captain of the Ship that carried the Plague to MeiHna. He was (eiz'd at the fnftanceof the Vice-Conful of France, and]tis_be]iev'd willfpeedily be deliver'd Dp to the King of the'Two Sicilies, to be made an Example of. We hear, that on Friday laft Samuel Sandys,,.Efq; Member of Parliament for Worcefter, kifs?d his Majelty's Hand, on being made a Peer of this Kingdom, by the Title of Baron Sandys of Omberfley, in the County of Worcefter. And we alfo hear, that he is appointed Cofferer to his Majefty. On Friday Night about 8 o'Clock, as one Mrs. Felton, Houfekeeper to a Gentleman at Chelfea, was returning home from London, fee was attack'd near Buckingham iHonfe by a Man and a Woman, who robb'd her of about Three Guineas, her Rings, and a Cap, and made off un-difcovered. Laft Week died at her Houfe in Covent-Garden, the Ce lebrated Mrs. Hayward, a Lady well known by the Polite Part of the. World ; who by her great Induftry and Applies �on to Bufinefs, acquired a Fortune of near 10,000 1. On Saturday laft Thomas Pippin, Driver of a Hackney Co;ch, No. 2Z7. was tried at HicksV Hall, upon an In dictment for malicioufly and wilfully endeavouring to over fet a Gentleman's Coach, and finding that he could net accomplife his wicked Defign, having frightened. the Ladies that were in the faid Coach to a very great Degree; tie thought fit to beat the Gentleman's Servant, for attempting to take his Number; for which Mifdemeanors he was committed to Clerkenwell Bridewell for three Months, to hard Labour.-'Tis to be hoped his Brutifti Fraternity will take warning by this, there being Acts of Parliament to unife them for fuch Crimes by any Magiftrate, without taking the Trouble of Indicting. On Saturday lift 18 Prifoners were Tried at the Old Bailey, one of whom was Capitally Convicted, viz. Thomas Hill, for uttering and vending Cards with fa'fe and counterfeit Stamp, knowing it to be fo. Nine were calt for Tranfportation, and 8 Acquitted.

As it has been found by Experience, that the Exami ning, during the Hours of Drawing the Lottery, is fo great __>an Interruption as to hinder the Correctnefs that ought to be in a Numerical Book ; therefore thofe who enquire for their Friends in the Country, or themfelves, are defired to call after Three o'Clock at LOWE and BERRY*s Office in Stationer's-Aliey,Ludgate-fireet,who have taken alt poffible Care to prevent any Interruption to their Polling with the greateft Certainty; and to prevent the Town being impofed on by People unknown with Counterfeit Tickets or Blanks, they will warrant all thofe bought of them to be Undrawn and good Tickets with their own Hands.
