We hear, that the French Troopjjj which were in March for Italy, have received Orders froiri Court to (lay where they are, till they have frefh Inftruc^ tions. We are not without Apprehenfions of a Vifit frorr| the Piedmontefe, and there L a general Report, that thef King of Sardinia has refblved to re-conquer thisDutchy. I Lyant, Jfril 6. All the Regular Troops that were herejj marched on the 30th pall for italy, and their Place is ftipA plyed by the Burghers. Commerce is here in a very bad] State, and we look upon Public Affairs to be no-better j The Piedmontefe have had the Courage to penetrate as faij as la Vachette, a Village only a League and a half fromj Briancon. Their Defign was to farprize this City, butj being an Hour and a half too late for that, they took their* Revenge upon the Village, which they have entirely burn| down, to the great Prejudice of the Country. The Vil-j lagc was formerly pallifadoed. According to the laft Ad4 rices from Italy, every Thing there is in Confufion ; the| Spaniards have given the French Notice to evacuate thei Country, calling them Tray tors, and infilling upon it thatj the Affair of Alt', with, its Confequencea, is only a. Piece of French Treachery. 1 Brufels, Jpril 18. The States of Brabant have been, Donino, with'a Defign to oppofe a Succour of 12000 Mtn, which he wai informed was com-mgfroM Placentia to \l. de Caftellar ; fo that we are in Expectation of hearing every Moment of the Succefs of this Enterprize, which is become the more important, as by Advvees from Lichtcnltein of the }th Inftant, thisCourt has New?, that the Spania/ds had evacuated Pavia tile E>ay before, aud were inarched to Pkcemia. The Prince adds that he doss not doubt pPValentja's havirig heen evacuated at the fume Time, which laft Place jthe' Ki�g �f Sardinia had undertaken the Siege of ;. while he, Prince Lichtenftein, was, by his Sardinian Majefty's Confent, in Motion to. join General Bernclaa upon the Tefiin, on the Side of Pavia. The French who are at Novi aaoV Gavi, and who are faid pot to have been fuffer'd by the'Spanifh Garrifon to enter "into Tortsna, are looked upon, for the prefent,' as out' of Play, till the Arrival of the 25000 Men, which it is faid the Court'- of Verfailles has ordered into Italy through the River of Genoa. The. Spaniards haying now all palled the Po, it is hoped General .Brown will be able to hinder their Retreat into the lEccIefiaftical State,which it is fuppofed mull be their principal Defign in evacuating Pavia, in order to affembleat Placentia. � Whitehall, Jpril 15.
