His Majefty's Ships, with the Outward-bound, remain. Wind S. W. An Extrali of a Letter from Pa ris* dated January i. * News has, it's faid, lately been ___' receiv'd here from Madrid, that the King of Spain has at length yeiLded to the Reafons l� �f this Court, his Catholick Majefty having determin'd * te-'fldter into no Negociations with Great Britain, but to ' � accept Of the laft Offers made him by his moll Chriftian * Majefty, which are as follow: The.

Letters from Bavaria of the .19th advife,.'that the French .remain quiet, with great Sicknefs amongit them, at Stadtamhoff andAiriberg.. It is "aflur'd 200 are buried in a Day in the former Town, and that there are 8000 Sick in the latter. Pienna, Dec. 31. We have Advice here, that Marfhal BelleaV taking Advantage of the Froft, went out of Prague on the 16th at. Midnight with 8 or 9000 Men, whereof thete were frort\ 3 to 4000 of Cavalry, and great Numbers Of Officers, 44- Field-Pieces, 200 Waggons for Baggage, &c.~ aftd t:iat he had taken along with iiina fixteen of the principal-Inhabitants of .the Town, not only of the Clergy, ' Nobility and Gentry, but of the BurgejTcs and Students, and even of the Jews, by way of Hoftages, Jot the Security of thofe he left behind, amongft which there were near 3cc6 iick, and incapable of marching. Prince Lobcowitz had hot Notice of it till the next Day, and then imms- j,u-ilwpA.*->>om vui*k yflll^la- Jlili�rpn>V� lVlth^ll h|S Hollars, and four Regiments of Horfe. After fouowihg them, feveral Days he return'd to Prague, and fummon'd the Town to furrender; and the fame Day had a Conference with the Commandant M. Chevert, who iniifted upon high Terms, not being fatisfied with obtaining Permiflion for the healthy. Part of the Garrifon to march out, but infilling alfo that the Sick mould not remain Prifoners of'War, nor their "Artillery, Ammunition, &c. be converted to the Ufe of the Queen of Hungary : But thefe Demands were refufed, and the.Capitulation was fign'd the 26th, upon the Foot of all&wing thofe who were able to march, and who ars- fup-poifed to amount to 1200 Men, to retire to Egra, and the reft, to remain Prifoners of War. In Confequence of the faid Capitulation, the Citadel was to be evacuated on the 28th, and'the �Garrifon to march out of the Town, as on the- 2d of January, N..S. . Upon the 24th the firft Column of the ^iFiencb Troops arriv'd at Egra, in a very wretched Condition; "and upon.the.25th the fecond Column, where M. Believe was in Perfon, arnVd there; but the Infantry hot being able t* advance with equal Diligence, on account of the Severity of 'the Weather, and the continual harraffing of tife Auftrian Huffars, was not then come ,up. TheMiferies ''they have fuffer'd in this March are incredible, Multitudes having died on the Road with Cold, as well Men asHorfes. 14 or 1500 of the French are fuppofed to have fallen by the Sword, and.as many to have been taken Prifoners j and it isr likewife'.fai.d, that they have loft the greateft Part of their own Baggage, befides all "the Waggons they had loaded with the Plurtdej- of Prague, to an immenfe Value, as alfo their whole Artillery. A Letter from Bohemia fays, that nothing " ca#,4�fcribe ,th'e difrnal Spectacles that lie upon the Roads on which the French have march'd. 'The Villages ate burnt and plunder'd, and crowded with the dead Bodies of Men and Cattle, and the Highways are full of Blood. The .Scarcity of Provifions in Egra is very near as great as it was in "Prague, and, by all Accounts, thtre is a contagious. Uiflejnper amongft the Troops in that Place. It is not doubted' but Prince Lobcowitz will march himfclf, or detach a fufficient Number of Troops to obferve the Motions o�Ma*rfhal BeMeifle. The Count de Saxe is with a Corps o/r above 4000 Men at Gravenau, upon the Confines of Bohemia. "Liege, 'Jan: 1: It's reported here, that the Duke of Sfflubacfc is taken.ill of the Small-Pox. ; Hague, Jan. 8. The Octroy or Licence of tke Eaft-Iridia Company has been renew'd by the States General for %weht Years to- come, upon Condition of paying 3 per Cent, upon their Dividends to the Union. We havejuft? - received' the News that the Elector of Mentz is relaps'd, and very- dangeroufly ill. The Lofs of the French upon | their Retreat from Prague is varioufly reported, the Auftrians making the Number of thofe kilPd, perifli'd by Cold, taken, and deferted, to amount to near 4000 Men, while Marihal Belleifle's own Accounts reduce that Number, as we hear, to about 400, and do not allow that the Auflrians had any Advantage over them during their March, or that they fuffer'd any Lofs in their Equipages, or Artillery. L O N D ON. Whitehall, Jan. 4. Oh the 6th of December his Majefty's Sloop the WoLf, cdmmanded by Capt.
