"ExtraS of a frivatt Letter from Amjlerdam, dated April the yh, N.S. � A Report has prevailed here of late, that we would, in * all probability, foon hear of an Accommodation between * the King of Pruffiaand the Courts of Vienna and Dref- * den, by the Interpofition of the King of Great Britain. * Our Gazettes mentioned the fame Thing; adding that * M. de Munchausen, Minifter of State of Hanover, was * gone to Berlin, and from thence to the Pruffian Army in * Silefia, in order to put the finifhing hand to this good � Work ; But all thefe Reports now appear groundless, for ' we have U from very good Hands, that M. de Munchau-;�ufen only, went to Nordhaufen, m order to have an Inter- � view with the Baron de Henricke, Minifter of Confe-4 rence to the King of Poland, about fome fecret Affairs. � Some.People pretend, that the Bufuiefs is a confiderable * um of Money, which the Court, of Drefden wants to ."* borrow. Others maintain that the Interview related to � the March of a Body of Saxon Troops, to cover the � Electorate of Hanover, in cafe the French flwuld draw � too near it. � We hear from Coblenrz, that the French have (5m-� moned. the Town of Limbourg on the Lahne, to fur-'* render to them, or a't leaft to turn out the Troops of the * Allieithat are. in it.. This-Place belongs to the Eleftor 4 of Triers ; and it is thought that the French have taken * this Step, that they, may have a Pretext to attack it, * without infringing, the Neutrality of the Elector of ** Triers. Marfhal Maillebois has likewife demanded of � the. Ele&or of Meat* th,e Town of Hohenftein, fimated * on r.he Confines of the County of Catznelloboge in We- * teravja, threatning in Cafe of Refufal to attack it, as he * did theFortrefs of Konigttein. The French make di- * vers. Motions, 'and are cbnrinually marching and counter-marching in Weteravia, in order to put the Allies upon � a wrong Scent, ifpoffible. The latter have drawn their Troops dofer together-, and feem refolved to wait for '� there, without flmefcing. - '-* Qax Advices from Bavaria are more favourable. The * Anftriarj&bave opened the Campaign on that fide with 4 Succeis, after having affemblfd a body of tzooo Men / drawn feom Pafiau, Schardlngen and Braun2�, they pafs'd * the Inn, and feized upon a Track of Land of four Leagues - in-Length'and as many in Breadth, between � the Danube, the Inn and the Vils: Then they made * themfelves Mailers cf Vilflioven, which they carried at � the third Affault. Our Letters from Ratifbon fay, that * the taking.of that Place has colt the Auftrians upwards of 4 1000 Men, tho' They fay but too. And the fame Ler-4 ters agree no better with the Austrian Accounts, irr re-4 gard to the Number of Troops made Prifoners at Vil- * fhoven.' Extras of a Letter from Lifbon, March 3, N.S. * The Infant Don Emanuel, the Kings Brother, was * taken very ill a few Days fince, juft after Dinner, as � were likewife feveral Gentlemen and Officers of his * Houfhold; and it being apprehended that there was fome- * thing; corrupt, or unwholfome in what was ferved up to ' the Prince's Table, diligent Enquiry was made in the * Kitchen and Pantry, ancf it was at laft found out, that � the Paftry-Cook had made Ufe of fome Flower, which, ' by Miftake> had been put into a Bag that had had Arfe- * nick in it. As the Prince and all tfiofe who were out of * Order, immediately took proper Antidotes, this Acci-' dent hsts not been attended with any bad Confluences. 'FromRatifbon we have received the following Declara-� tion made by the King of Pruffia, the Elector of Bavar 1 ria, and the Eleftor-Palatine, ro the other Ele&oral ' Courts of the Empire; viz. That no Body is ignorant of * theReafons that determined the Electors of the Holjf * Roman Empire to fufpend the Vote and Suffrage of Bo-' hernia, in the laft Dyet held at Franefort for the Efcclion 4 of an Emperor : That it is equally notorious, that this ' Sufpenfion was made in Confequence of the unanimous ' Refolution of the Electoral College t That to the fame * College indifputable belongs the Right of refloring to its � Activity a Vote which they thought fit to fufpend ; That 4 the Laws and Conftitutibns of the Empire are very ex-' prefs and dear onthis Head. That the Electoral Courts * of Brandenbourg, Bavaria and Palatine cannot therefore ' fee, without great Surprize, the Deputies of the King-4 dom of Bohemia actually invited to the future Dyet of 4 Election, without having previoufly requefted the Elec- * roral College, to repeat the Refplu?ion whereby that 4 Vote was fbfpendcd : That they protcft againft fo eflential 4 an Omiffion, and agamft every tiling that may refult ' therefrom in- Prejudice of the Constitutions of the Em- * pire ; and that they will Ipok upon the whole to be ab- * folujtely null and of no Eifeft.' The Reafons objected by the Court of Vienna, which fome other Courts have favoured with their Approbation, are, 4 That the Sufpenfion of the Vote of Bohemia, even * fuppofing it was not illegal, could be confined only to the ' Election for which it was thought fit to fufpend it: That ' the Cafe of a new Election reftores of Courfe that Vote * to its former Acnvity; arid therefore, that the Invitation ' to the Deputies of the Kingdom and Electorate of Bohe-' mia, has been given upon this Principle, and on the folic! 4 Foundation refulting therefrom, &c. The laft Advices fro^ra Duflfcldorp fay, that ,the Elector of Bavaria had demanded, from the French 'Court, a Reinforcement of 20',obc5 Mew,, and in that Cafe offered to caufe himfelf to be piociaimed King of Bohemia, Archduke of Auftria, &c. aodinfmuating at the fame Time, ijf his Demand was not granted, he fhould be obliged to make Peace on the beft Terms he could obtain.- Yefterday Advice was. brought thaf a French Ship of 250 Tons, bound from RocKeHe to Dunkirk, with Wine and Brandy, is taken by the Swift Privateer, Capt. Hud-fon, and feht:into the Downs. The fame Day theta was ari Account/ that a Swediflj Hoy, bound from Bourdeaux to North-Copen, (as the Matter pretends) but/up^os'd- really to be bound to Dunkirk : And a Brigantine1 (law'a Scotch Veffel, taken by a French Privateer)' bound from.'St.' Mafoes .to Rotterdam ; laden at Dunkirk with Mokfles and Rum, are both taken by the Sutherland Priiatefcr,. and brought into the Downs. An Irifh Veffel, with 900 Barrels of Beef, from Martf nico, is taken by his Majefty's Ship the Argyle, Captain Holborne, and carried-into Barbadoes, where fhe is cori-demned j the Mailer's Name is Kane.
