Aix ia Chapelle, March 12, N. & The EJe&orof Cologne has feht Majdr General Baron de Wengheh to com-pliment his Ez&lfehcy my Lord Stair, Upon his arrival here, and to 'rriake Tome Propofitiohs relative to the quartering Irfs Majefty's Hanoverian forces in his Electorate; upon Which Brigadier Bland, Quarter Mafter General of the Army, fet out from hence this Afternoon for Bonne, in Company with'-Baron Wenghen, to compliment his Electoral Higtraefs on the Part of the Earl of Stair, and, to regulate what /hall be neceflary for the Reception of thofe Troops. . L ON D O N. His Majefty -is indHpos'd with a Cold,'and'upon that Account there was no Drawing-Room oh Friday Night at St. Janres's j and his Majefty did not go to the Chapel Royal Yefterday as niual. We hear a Chapter of the Bath will be held at St. James's on Thurfday next, to fill^up the Vacancies in thut Honourable Order. On Friday laft died at her Houfe in Poland-Street, St. James's, the Hon. Mrs. Sarah-Henrietta Dudley, Sifter to Sir William Dudley; Bart, and Daughter to the late Sir Matthew Dudley, by the Lady Mary his Wife, Daughter of the Right H>n. the Earl of Thomond in the Kingdom of Ireland. She was a Lady of uncommon Sweetnefs of Temper," of great Excellence and Parity in her Manners, of a charitible Difpofition to the Needy (to whom Ihe W3s remarkably liberal) and of a fteady, pious, and truly virtuous Life : In fine, the many good Qualities (he was" Mif-trefs of, render'd her an Ornament to her Sex, and dear to -who had the Happinefs of her Converfation; fo that the Lofs of her cannot be mentioned without the deepeft Concern. The celebrated Traveller, Mr. de la Motraye, (who fled to England after the Revocation of the Edift of Nants) died in Paris the-jift of laft January. During his Illnefs, Mr. de la Popliaiere^ one of the Farmers-General, and a great Encourager of the polite Arts, treated him with all the Tendernefs of a fond Parent; he indulging him the feveral Conveniencies of his noble Houfes, botii in Town and Country; and fending for the ableft Phyficians in France tayifit him. He was amodeft, learned Man; an agreeable Companion, and a iincere Friend. Thefe Qualties had eadeared him to many Fcffons of the firft Rank in moft Parts of the World ; (and even to the brave Charles XII. King of ^wedeji) by Which means he did not feem a Stranger to any Country. One of the laft Letters he fent to England, concludes with thele Words: ' I am become * .a mere Skeleton^ and decay fo much daily, that I hardly ..' think it will be.poffible for me to fee hiy old Friends in * England any more. I am pretty eafy about Death. I ' have vifited the four Parts of our Globe, and lived fixty c eight Year6, or upwards j which is a much longer Term ' than moft Men lire allowed. However, "it would be a ' Confolation to me to carry my Bones into England, and ' take leave of iny Friends before I die.' Admiral Steuart is ill at his Houfe iu Grofvenor-Street. His Majefty's Ship theHaftings, commanded by the Right Hon. "the Lord Bamff, is order'd to Virginia, and is to take under his Convoy the Ships bound to that Colony. The Lords of the Treafury have appointed Mr. Richard MerimSh to be Surveyor -of Houfes for Part of Effex. Mr. Chandler, Butler to his Grace the Duke of Dorfet, Lor.i-Steward of his Majefty's Houlhold, is appointed one of the Gentlemen Porters of his Majefty's Palaces, in the room of Mr.' Humphreys. And Mr. Humphreys is likewife appointed by his Grace one of the Pages of his Majefty's Silver Scullery, in the room of Mr. Thompfop, deceas'd.
