Our Lerters from Mantua tell us, that the Germans are preparing to march into their Winter quarters, and that they have fecHred Guajiala, having by a fpeedy march prevented the French, who had Tent a Body as far as the River Lenz�, to feize that place. The Duke of Mantua is very much afraid of a Bombardment, and Count Theffi, who commands in that place, takes al] pofli-ble precautions to provide himfelf againft the defigns of thfr Germans, and likewise againft the Inhabitants, Vho are very loth to venture the Burning of their Houfo, in a quarrel wherein they are not concerned.
