Well Indi- : to crijiZ? Any Privateeis appear now on thU Coaft, Io that we mult extent Ships from icveral Parts. Mat cannot have theBentiit of Convoys, to fall into their Hands; for tit Fly Sloop onh . is cruifing off the R',ck, ar.d it wi.l be a coniideribie time teiore he can be join'd by one of his Mi-jelly's twenty gun Ships that iscrdei'd to Gibraltar to c.'e;n. Single Ships endeavour to ni3ke the R�ck, but often f-.JJ in v\i)h th? Barlings, where two Spanifli Privateers p!y, and !�ive taksn icveral Ships; thethrcelaft were the Unity. Cupi.

Then the Freeho'cers adjonrned their C^nr: till nex� maintain the Right of Treitie-.. For thefe Retfons th? Coortof Great Britain has principally turned its Views towards America, whither the French Squadrons are fecrt t ly gone, and hascsukd the Squadrons of Sir Chaloner Ogle and Lord Cathcarr, when ccmpofea Flert of near eighty Sail, to depart with ali Di!ig?nce, befoie having giiensn Anfwer to the Dcikvai.on of France, h's pofi- lively affor'd, that Sir Chaloner 0�!e has Orders to attack all tkat fhaii oppofe the Ex-vution of his Orders The Seat of War being thus traai pored" inw Anjericj, .the Face of AiFairs is thereby greaily tk.ng'd, ar.d it will boo be feen whether the Fiencu will th�re join .with the Spaniards; if fo, that would- be a Se:.t cf.War with which the other Powers in Europe would fcarcely inter, meddle.

Fenelon cinnoc penetrate with all the Cunning he is Mailer of. Peop'e begin again to talk of a fecond Augmentation both by 'St-a anc Land; but Piopofiticns of this Nature always rcqui-e long Deliberations; and perhaps thefe Things ar; t\!k'd of tht more to puzzle and perplex the Marquis de Fene'on, who has loft Ground here every Day fince the Depaitureof the French Squadrons contrary to Wordthit they ihou'd not go out. L� � The Di(courfc which the foreign Minifler. mentioned, in fome of my lall Letters, lately had with the Members of the Regency, and the Arguments which he then made Ufeof to determine theai to enter into the War, fecm to haveflagger'd, but not to have prevaii'd upon them. It will be very difficult to perfuade ievera] of the Minifier-of the State from an Opinion they have all along enter-tain'd, that the Cardinal has no Inclination for W.-.r, and (hat the Order has been difpatch'd againlt his Will to the Commanders cf tbe Bieft and Toulon Squadrons to let Sail for America. * The following is the Contents of a Letter upori this Subject, from a Perfon at Paris to a Foreign Minifter here. The Marquefs d'Antinr may poffibly he rccall'd with hi� Squadron, without executing the Order which wa� uing the great Enferpnze ihey h"d f-rm' they fay, fhe has in fome M3afure facet e^d. which has yet come to the Kno vlcdje but of a few, is however very certain,- which i.% tiiat m tie Council held at Veriailles, to'csnfult wh-ther-'it would be proper or not for the Breft and Tcu'cn Squndrons to fail, the Cardinal was abfo'utely for th? Negative ; and his kntiments would have prevaii'd, if the -Members of the Council who are in the Spanifh Party had not by cert.-iin Intrigue, found Vleafls of giining the Duke of O.Ie�ns; io that that _ Prince having voted againft the Sentiments of the Cndinp.l!
