AME down the Mary, Mercer, for Oporto ; Anne, Biibop, for Pordmonth, and remain in the Down. Wind W.S.W. The European, Wright, from Carolina, is arrived at Cowes* in five Weeks and fire Days.

The Emprefc, accompanied by the Grand Prince and Grand Duchefs, with a numerous Retinue, (bat chofe exprefsly oat of the MimtUrs, Lords, ana" Ladies) fet out Yefterday at n in the Morning for Revel, under a DuchBrge of the Artillery of the Fonrefc and the Admiralty. We are affured, that the frequent Conferences which Lord Hyndford has had with the Grand Chancellor Count Beftucheff, fince the Conclusion of the Treaty between this Court and that of Vienna, were upon the Subject of his Britannic Majefty's Acceffion. It is reported, as a Thing certain, that we {hall know the Detonation of the Troops that are affembled, as Coon as the Ratification of the faid Treaty is armed from Vienna. Madrid, July 18. The Kmg*9 Will, made in the Year 1724, imports, ' That his Majefty leaves to the Qaecfl his * Cenfort the Palace of St. Ildefonfo, to be enjoy'd by her * daring Life, with all the Moveables and Pictures \ and * that ever and above the 200,000 Ducats, the ufual * Dowry of the Queens of Spain for their Subfiftence, he ' orders that a Pennon of 600,000 Piaftres be paid to her � Monthly, out of thofe Revennes of the Kingdom that * are moft dear/ And by a Codicil, added in 1727, the King ratifies that Will, and orders; � The Queen (hall be * at Liberty, in Cafe fce does not like to refide at St, Ilde- * fonfo, to chuie any other Part of the Kingdom fhe fliall * think-proper, without Oppofition j and if fee is defirous � to live oat of the Kingdom, all her Appointments mail * be punctually paid in any Place whatfoever ; recommen-�* ding alio tc the King his Succeffor, to have all pofEele * Regard for her Majefty, and to take her Councils, which * he declares, before God, he has always found ufeful to � himfelf.' Hi? Majefty alfo declares, � That he would � not have his Body embalmed till 48 Hours after his \* Death, and that it mould be carried to the Church of St. \ Udefbnfo, there to remain till the Deceafe of the Queen � his Spoufe, in order to their being buried together, in a * Tomb of White Marble, in the Middle of the faid � Church.' The new King has declared, that his Father's Will mail be in all Points complied with, and in order to have the Qneen Dowager near him, for the Sake of her Advice, has caufed two Palaces to be hired, between which a Communication may be made, for her City Refidcnce. Too* his Majefty fays he will continue to weeour his Brother Don Philip, the Couriers to and from that Prince, which were fixed at two every Day, are reduced to two every Week, and feveral other Retrenchments are made, particularly in regard to the Appointments of the Miniilers, in order to reimburfe the Debts of the Nation. Bxtra3 of a private Letter from a Frenchman at Madrid to hit Friend at Paris. 1 You muft have heard with Surprize of the {adden * Death of King Philip V: on Saturday the 9th fnftant. ' Six Minutes of Time were all the Warning that Provi-' dence gave that Prince ; the Queen, who had almoft ren-' der'd him invisible to his Subjects, could not ward off the * Stroke of Death. What Changes and Novelties are we ' to expert! Some are confounded, others tremble, and ' there is a general Confternation. ' Scarce were the Kiag's Eyes clofed but Double Guards ' were placed at all the Gates of the Pakce. Tbe Mar-' quis de Lava, acting as Prefklent of Caftile, came to kils * tie Prince of Afturias's Hand, now Ferdinand VI. ' and presented htm the: Will of his deceafed Father, by * which he leaves the Royal Caftte ai Sl Ildefonfo to the ' Queen his Confort, with 600,000 Ducats Revenue, re-' commends the Care of his. Children bythe fecond Venter, ' and bequeaths to them all that the Law ordains* ' As the Queen with certain Italians governed the King-' dom, without the King's Affiftance, it was apprehended, * that the Prince of Afturias would begin his Reign with ' violent Extremes but we have now to thinx this * Prince has too much Greatnek of ^Stfjl and Generofity ; *� give Way to Sentimetots of Vengeance. He is fbfl of ' Virtues: But his great Tendemefs for his People, doubt- lefs, will hinder, his Falling in with- the Foreigners that are here. The Spaniards have left a King in the Peribn of PhiKp V. bat they will find a Friend in that of Ferdinand VI. and, as to us, we have loft a Friend, and ihall find a King. Tho' the French have confiderable Employments at Court, they will have no Power of any Kind for the future. The Government will infalKbly become all Spanifh, and the Italians will be the Horror of the People, who will not fail to confound them with the French, and make both alike the Objects of their Re-iantment, In a Word, we are upon a Bridge that trembles beneath our Feet. ' It is not "credible that the new King will follow the Plan of Operations projected in Italy, and it is thought the Infant Don Philip will have Orders to retire, to lave, if pofttble, the few Spaniards that remain. ' The Queen has fupported her Lois with great Refolu-tion. ffeaxle, Jug. 3. We decamped Yefterday from Long-champ, the better to make head againft the Enemy. Our advanced Troops, particularly the free Companies, came to Blows on that Occafion with the French, and had five Officers and 40 Soldiers killed and wounded. In Revenge they killed 200 of the Enemy, wounded a great Number, and took feveral Prifoners, among whom is a Colonel of the Gendarmerie. A Party of 100 Enemy had Yefterday the boldnefs to ceme to a Village not far from our Head Quarters; bat were furrouBded by a Party of Huflars, and a Detachment of Hungarian Foot, who left 60 of them dead on the Ground, and brought off the other 40, who were all wounded, except three. The French had retir'd into the Church ; but being forced there, no Favour was {hewn, even to thofe who took Refuge at the Altar. The Prince of Waldeck being drawn thither by the Noife, fared the Life of a French Officer, who was got into the Pulpit, and was juft going to be facrificed by a Huffar.-Quarters were at firft offered, which the French refined ; fo that they were themfelyes the Caufe of this Slaughter. Suarle, Jag. 4- The Army made another Motion the Night before laft. Our Left is' now at Mazy, and tha Right towards Of tain, having Namure at our Backs, half a League diftant. The Enemies have a .Body of Troops overagainft Mazy, and their Army extends from Conroy to WaJhem ; fo that we are feparated by the Orneau. The French begin to build Redoubts along that River ; but in all Appearance we fhall not give them Time to compleat their Werk. As Namure is in perfect Safety, feveral Battallions from thence have joined oar Army. From the London Gazette* Naples, July 12. By a Difpatch from the Secretary of State's Office, the King has nominated M. de la Vieu Ville Viceroy of Sicily, in the Room of Prince Corfini, who is to ad however in that Character till that General can be conveniently relieved by a Succeffor to the Command of the King's Troops in Lombardy.

Belloni, the Banker at Rome, and others there, have received the feme Orders, in Confe quence of which, the 16th he remitted 50000 Crowns which makes it conjectured that Den Philip is to retire thither. The lateft Letters from Lombardy bring us no Occurrences of any Moment. The Confederate Spanifh, French, and Neapolitan Troops, continue in their former Pofitioa at Codogno, and in the Lodefan* having-gathered up and introduced into Placentja all the Forage tfrey could �et. The Auftrians continue to batter that Town, and have detached from the main Body of their Army two large Parties of their Troops, one to join die King of Sardinia, and the other, General Roth ; it is thought, with a View to ftreighten the Army, and to bring them to an Action. The King of Sardinia was accordingly in Motion towards the River Trebia.

French, who, according to the Advices from Bruffels, had fent to that City 150 Waggons full of wounded at a Time.

In the mean Time Difficulties are arifen with regard to the March of the Troops which her Imperial Majefty is to fend to the Aid of the Court of Vienna and her Allies, on Account of their being obliged to craverfe fome Parts of the King of Pxuftta's Dominions.
