Count Efterhafi has been fome Days returned from Vienna, and is faid to have Orders to* explain to the Court the Reafons that ought to hinder it from making a Reduction of the Troops in the prefent Conjuncture. .It appears in Fact, that the Thoughts of fuch Reduction are at prefent laid afide, and tho' we are to lend no Troops to any Foreign Power, we keep on Foot 60,000 Men, which is very extraordinary in this Country, even in Time of War.

The following Letter, which is a faithful Translation from an Original, feems to be' of as extraordinary a Nature as that lately forwarded hither by M. Van Hoey, and in all Probability will be as much regarded here. A Letter frw Monf. the King of P- 'SIR, .Chamberlain t9 to Monf. T^HE King my Mailer, who, amidft the Troubles of (' _ Europe, purfues no other Intereft than thofe of ' the Public Good, and the neceffary Peace, which he fa : 1 much defires ; has read with great Attention, the Letter  1 which the King of FraBce has caufed to;be wrote by his 1 Minifter, to the Ambaffadorof the States-General, con- ' oerning Prince C-E-- and his Fartizans, who, by ' the Chance of War, have been defeated, after perform- * ing Miracles of Valour. The King my Mafter would ' have wrote in the fame Manner upon this Subject, had ' he been required, tho' he is not allied by Blood to the ' Houfe of S->t. The Merit of Prince E-- is alone ( fufHcient to determine any Monarch, who is a Friend to ' Courage and Clemency, to act in this Manner. � We are greatly furprifed at our Court, to hear that fe-1 veral Perfons at Paris think this Letter, in the King of * -France's Name, is not wrote with fufHcient Spirit and ' Dignity } and that the Council of L--n look upon as 4 too bold and prefumptuous.. Our Court, which is nei-' ther actuated by the Cabals which may divide Paris, nor ' by the Opinions which may prevail at the Court of St. ' J.....'s, is unanimoufly agreed, that this Declaration, ' which the King of France has made of his Sentiments, ' is, at once, worthy of a Moft Chriftian King, who * makes War with a View to Peace ; and who has the ' Virtue to Ihew, even his Enemy/ wjiat Kings owe to and that they will be executed on Wednefday the 13th Inftant. ' ' Yefterday there was a Proof of 94 Pieces of Cannon at Woolwich, in the PreTence of GeneralBorgard.
