This Morning came into the Harbour from a Cruise the Taviftock Sloop of War, in order to be dock'd. The Bacchus, Cobb, from Cajolina, is arrived at Lisbon. LONDON. Conclujlon "f M. de Ramfcbixag's Memorial. � Thefe Things were executed at the fole Expence of 4 her Imperial Majelty, and her faithful Allies, none of ' the States that were truly Neuter having fuffered in the 4 leaft. Her Majefty is not lefs difpoied at prefent to � inarch at her own Expence, for the Security of the Fron-4 tier, the Contingent ordered by the Refolution of the 4 Empire, on the 17th of December, 1745. And as to � what regards the Winter-Quarters, which fhe has de-� manded for her Troops that came to fuccour the Empire, 4 as well from the Low-Countries as from her other here-4 ditary Eftates, her Majefty has pretended to nothing 4 more than Cuftom and the L aws of War have always 4 granted to Troops, whofe Maintenance has coftfomuch, 4 and who have fo well performed their Duty; her Ma-4 jefty at the fame Time, after the Example of her glo-4 rious Anceftors, continuing to grant, without the leaft * Relerve, the fame Advantages to the auxiliary Troops 4 that are in her Dominions.  Her Majefty's Delicacy in 4 this Refpedt proceeds fo far, that fhe is willing to reim-4 burfe or compenfate whatever the neutral States may ' have' fumilhed beyond their Due, conformably to the 4 Regulations, for the Number of Troops that were em-4 ployed laft Summer to cover and clear the Empire j her 4 Intention having never been, as it never fhall be, to re-4 quire anyThing of the States who fhall picque themfelves 4 upon their Sentiments of true Patriotifm, but what Juf-4 tice and Equity manifestly allow her. * All this being well-weighed and confidered, it is eafy 4 to imagine how fenfibly her Majefty was affected, when 4 fhe learnt, that in certain Refpedts tke Minifters of her 4 Enemies were liften'd to more favourably than hers; that 4 the Credential Letters of the former were received purely * and fimply, while Attempts were made to circumfcribe 4 thofe of the latter by Reftridtjons ; that even the verbal 4 AiTuraHces of De la Noue, which he does not commit to ' Writing, met everywhere with entire Credit; that in ' certain Courts there are Minifters in the Pay of France, 4 who inform her of all that paffes in the AiTemblies of the 4 Circles and of the Empire, and fuggell to her the Means 4 of doing ftili frem Injuries to the Houfe of Auftria ; that 4 inftead of acknowledging all that fhe hsd done, certain 4 Powers not only depart from their perpetual Engage-4 ments with the Arch-ducal Houfe, but even refufe to per-4 form thbfe reciprocal Duties, which her Imperial Mi-' jefty has, on her Side, literally fulfilled, and is ready to 4 fulfil on all Occafions: That all this was done for the 4 Sake of a Crown, which refufes to acknowledge the 4 Head of the Empire; that the Views and Dehgns of 4 that Crown were more favour'd than is confident with ' the Obligations of Members to their Head, and confe-' quently with the fundamental Conftitution of the Em-' pire; that at the fame Time when this Crown oppofes ' the unanimous Ele&'.on of the Emperor, and refutes to * renew the laft Treaty of Peace, thefe Powers are con-4 eluding with her fecret Treaties of Peace and Amity ; * that, in refped to her, they difpenie themfelves from 4 obeying the Refolution of the Empire of the 17th of ' December laft, ratified by his Imperial Majefty, and * thus entirely overthrow the whole Syfte'm of the Empire, ' by reading under Foot the Bands that unite the Members* ' to their Head, and to each other. Her Majefty never intended to call in Queftion the Pre- * rogative of States to conclude Alliances with Foreign ' Powers; it is her own Intereft that this Prerogative fhould * fubfiit: But the Bounds are to whlsh it is j confin'd by the Treaty of Weftphalia, Dummodo ifihdc ' Fcsdera ton Jint contra Cafarem aut tmperiam. "� ' It is fubmttted therefore to all good Patriots, if Trea-| ties tending to break the double Ties, upon which the ' tyltem of the Empire is founded, ought to be regarded I as comprifed in the general Rule, or disapproved by the * Exception. But all thefe unheard-of Proceedings fhall n^-be aule to (hake the Conftancy of her Majelty, - the I .^een �f Hungary and Bohemia. Her imperial Ma-J^ity, firm under Misfortunes, moderate in Succeffjs, f faithful to h-*"-��'��uiv..-3. iiimorr. what * & Si ,h � rCl'Sj ^ *? makes 3 Law of 0 her- r A* w Jl Sela <^docs a111*" be willed, to her Crown, to her Houfe. to the Head of 4 the Empire, and to her Country ; confequently fhe will 4 notfuft'er hciielf to be fruftrated of the Perpetual Vwon, 4 * hich fubftUs between her Houfe and fome Circles of the 4 Empire, any more than the Rights which refult from the 4 common Bonds of all the Members. Hex Majefty thei-e-4 foce, willing to affure, maintain and prcferve this double 4 Right, as well as all that remits from it, againft all En-4 terprizes to the contrary, has charged the underfigned 4 Minifter, to notify this Declaration and Refervation to 4 all the laudable Circle of Suabia, giving it, at the fame 4 Time, the ftrongeft Affurances, that according to the 4 firft fundamental Law of Nature, her Majefty hns nothing ' in View by this Step, but to iecure herfelf from what 4 none of her Fellow-States would be willing themfelves to 4 fuffer.'
