Tuel'day, ^Febtuat? tty ill, 1708,9. The following Letter, written by Myor General Stanhope, to the Cbevdlier df Hasfcidc, if [0 \ Honourable to the Britifh Nation, that we JbaO Jnfert it. Publifhed at the Hague, By the Authority of the Stares of HoUani and Wtft-Friefland. T SIR. HIS Letter will bz deliver'd you by the Gpvernour of the Gaftle of St. Philip, who will inform you of the Capitulation of that Place, and with what Exaftnefs the fame wasperiorm'd on our fide, till this very Day; there being no Officer or Soldier who can complain, that he has loft the Value of a Pin, though the Treatment the Garrifon of Tortoza lately met with, would have juftify'd ush afting otherwife; Jibould, according to that Capitulation, have fent the French Soldiers and Officers into. France, had not I received the ftrifteft Orders from the1 Queeri my Miftrefs, to ufe Reprizals, thefirft Opportunity I had, for the Garrifon of Xati-va, which, by the Capitulation, .fhould havej been reftored, us. As you know better than any body how that Affair was manag'd, I apply my (elf to you, with Demands of Juftice ; And, according to the Orders I have receiv'4, I amoblig'd to let you know, That we demand the Ensli(h and Dutch, whocomposM the faid Garrifon, to be fent back to us in Catalonia,- arm'd and cloath'd. We know, indeed, That a great many of thofe poor Wretches have periuVd, by the ill Treatment they met with; That the reft are dif-pers'd ; and, That feveral were forced into the French Servcie ; But in a like Cafe in the late War, when the Garrifon of Duxmuyd was to be reftor'd, the French King orderr'd the like Number of Men to be fent hack. This is what we now demand ; and while you wait for an Anfwer from Court thereupon, the French Officers and Soldiers which are here, lball remain on Board, and bewellus'd. If the Anfwer happen comply with our juft Demands, you ought not to be furpriz'd, if, not having the faxrie Extent of Country, to ruin them by prodigious Marches, �we make them work on Fortifications till .aPeace, or 'till they are other wife agreed to be exehang'd. I am, with a great deal of Refpett, &c. WTahon, Oft. 1,1768. Sign'i, JAMES STANHOPE 1 '1 PB ACEis fodefirable a thing in it felf, efpe-ciaSy to a Country which hat been in War near 100years together, and the Arcb-Bijhop of Cambray^/ fo wdl defcribedthe Advantages of Peace in his admirable Telemachus, that it is not to be doubted but bis Wifhes are Sincere, and therefore the following Mandate of that Prelate defervetb to be Recorded. Publifhed by the faid Authority. A MANDATE by the Arcb-BijhopofCambraji Ordaining Prayers for a Peace. F People had never fecn War kindled between Neighbouring Nations, they could hardly believe. That Men could arm chemfdves gainft one another. They are overwhelmed with their own Miferies and Mortality, and (till induftrioufly, encreafethe Wounds of Nature, and invent new Ways of deftroying themfelves. They have but few Moments to live, and yet cannot be contented to let thofe melancholy Moments Aide away in Peace. There lie before therrf vaft Countries, without Pofieflors, and* neverthelefs, they worry one another for a Ncok of Land.

How defperate therefore our Ills muft be, fince we want fo defperate Remedy! A long Peace, fays St. Cyprian, corrupts the Difcipline God had given to Men ; fo that a heavenly Cbaftifement is neceffary to awaken our dropping and drowfy Faith.
