An Extrad of a Letter from a Pedbn of great Credit tat the Hague, dated Jan. u. The cold Weather we now have here, which threatens us with a Frpft, begins to renew our, Apprehenfions of an Expedition fran the French againft Zealand, and this is what the Enemies of our late happy Revolution never fail of amplifying as much as in them lies. But in Cafe of open Weather, we have actually no Occa.-fion to be afraid of any thing, being allured of the precautions which have bees taken, and which arc Inch as moil enefiually de/broy, the fiat bottomed Barks, but likewife the Galleys of the Invention of Count Lowendahl, as foon as they mail either attempt the paf&ge of the Scheld, or enter by its Mouth between the iHands of Zealand. It is believed by the Judicious, from- the preparations of Count Lowendahl that his Deftgns are either to make an Attempt upon Maeftacht,,Breda, or the Line which extends from this laft City to Oudenbofch, To prevent thefe De-figns from raking ESed, every meafure which prudence directs, is taken, and all the ports are reinforced. Orders have been djfpatcbed to the Hanoverians who are quartered in Guei&erknd, to repair to vimeguen, where there are Veffils ready to cendu^ them more earily to the pofls th�f are intended for. The Hef-fians who are in de province of Utrecht, nave like-wife Orders to keep themfelves in readinefs to march, and a many Borfcs as will be aecef&r? for drawing the Field Artillery, ate got together in the Neighbourhood, of Breda. As for Sceenbergea and Ter Tolen, the Inundation has fb effec&iajly guarded them, that there js nothing to be feared on that fide 5 and this Inundation the Tide renews, that keeps up con. tinually. The publick News-Papers make mention of a treaty concluded by M. Van Haten with the Proteflant Swifs Cantons for fmniihing the Republick with a body of 14,030 Men. This however has need of an explanation \ for it mail not be pnderffood as if the Swiuers were to fend the ftate i4*>o- Men more than what it has already in pay; but1 thefe will be augmented to 14,00- upon condition that they fha;l not be refonned, but remain in die pay of the Republick for evtr And what damage' can attend agreeing to this condieion, whidtonly obliges the ftate to have ready upon every Emergency a body of as good troops as an/ in Europe.

As the price of Corn and other provifions began to rife extremely in this; EJe&oote, on account of the great quantity for fome time paft bo"ght up by Foreigners, our mofr ferene EleSor has thought proper to put a flop to thatevjl, by forbidding the fending any more of thefe ifficefiaries out of his domifjons-A cerrain Miniver has made repreientations on this �ib;'ecl But be has been, aafwered, that as the dec* torate of Treves, coafiflstoore of mountains, forefb. and vineyards, than of land proper fox com, the latter feiriom produced more than the inhabitants had need of j and therefore it \vasahfcthitely nccd&ry to take care idhe country fhoujd not be unprovided, efpecially when foreign troops are quartered in it, and augment the confumption of provifions. The court, however, hath lent orders to the bailiffs, _ to take an account of the provifions in their lever&l diftricls, that a difcove-ry may be made whether there is yet a greater quantity of tbem than will be neceffiry ; after which his elec, toral highnefs will give pofiti ve orders upon the" fub* jefiT The above Letter is one of the many, that defcribe die great diligence ufed by the French to get -corn ! from the frontier .countries round diem, which plainly fhews how much they wane it to form their magazines for the next campaign, We are informed, thar there are at this prefect time + feveral fhips loading corn in the wefJem, and other : ports of this kingdom, intended diredh"y torFfance^ (.French paffports having been procured for thae purpofe) and that die parties concerned have even nflered polices of mfurance on thofe fhips. If it is mar that the inhabitants of France want corn, and that the magazines for the fubfifiance of their armies cannot be formed without com,from hence, fare it fhcild at almoft any rate, be Mort, fince the keeping it from them muft be of'more confequence. than an additional number of troops lent into the feld.-We hope that? no eomrraaders ofEji^lifh veflels are concerned for |peir own fakes; as it is (aid a law is fuhfifting whkh makes it death to carry corn to an enemy's country in time of war.
