General Advertiser (Newspaper) - August 7, 1845, London, Middlesex The General Advertifer. N a m i. 3347. WEDNESDAY, August;, 1745. Veal, Augufi 5. IS Majefty's Ships and the Out" ward-bound remain, as in my kit. Wind S.W. The Robert, Peddie, from Carolina, is arrived at Lifbon. The Frederick, -, from India, for Gottenburgh, is ar-" rived at Plymouth. LONDON. By Letters from Francfort we find there is a little Dif-putc between the Elector Palatine and the Magiftrates of that City, on the following Occafion : The Magiiirates have admitted into the City 500 Troops of the Circle of the Upper Rhine, judging fuch a Reinforcement necefiary in the prefent Juncture, when the Election of an Emperor is_at band: But the Elector Palatine looking upon this Proceeding to be incoofiftent with the Golden-Bull, has told them, ' That in the natural and litteral Senfe of that * Bull, they (the Magiftrates of Francfort) are bound, � when the Safety of the City requires it, to augment the * Garrifon at the Expence of the Burghers : Wherefore, * thc' his Electoral Bighnefs, in Quality of Prince of � Simmeren, is one of theEftates of the Circle of thetUp- * per Rhine, he declares that he has no Hand at all in the Step taken on this Occafion,, contrary to the Meaning of � the Golden Bull, that it muft reft on the City of Franc- * fort to give a Reafon for it to the Electoral College.* However, as the Magiftrates did not do this without mature Reflexion, and without intending to draw it into a Precedent hereafter, they have had no Regard for the Elector Palatine's Remonitrance, but will give an Account �f their Conduct to the Electoral College in proper Time and Place. Our Advices from Francfort add, that the Aultrians Lear pretty hard on the Inhabitants of the Palatinate, who like many others are punifhed by the Chance �of War, for the Deeds of their Sovereigns ; obliging them to bring to their Camp large Quantities of Oats, Hay and Straw ; and fuch Villages as are incapable to fur-rim any, are made to pay an Equivalent for it in Money : The little Town of Mofbach on the Neckar has been taxed st 10,000 Florins, in lieu of the Forrage that was demanded of it. They write from Vienna that the Queen has juft made a new Promotion, viz. Prince Wenceflaus of Litchtenftein created a Veldt-Marfhal, Governor General of the Dutchy of Milan, and Commander in Chief of the Auftrian Army in Italy ; Major-General Trips is made a Lieutenant-General ; the Colonels Barons Buftanzi and Hcifter are .promoted to the Rank of Major-Generals ; and Baron Stap-pel, Adjutant-General to the Grand Duke of Tufcany, who brought the Queen the News of the Prince of Conti's Retreat over the Rhine, is made a Colonel. It is faid this is the laft Promotion her Majefty will make, till the Election of an Emperor is over. The Preparations for the Queen's Journey are ftill continued, but no Day is fixed as yet for her Departure, as this muft depend on the Difpatch or the Delay in proceeding to the Imperial Election, which they ftill reckon will not fail to be carried in Favour of the Grand Duke; and as it behoves the Court to have �arly Intelligence of all the Tranfactions at Francfort, a poft extraordinary is arrived at Vienna, which fets out every Morning for Francfort, from whence another like-wife arrives every Day at Vienna. Dantzick, Augufi 4. Dagenaer the Swede being forced to leave the Port of Pillau, put 25 of his Men on board the Difpatch, whereof James Moody was formerly Mafter, on which Ship he had mounted 23 Guns, and commanded her himfeif; he divided the reft of his Men in the other three Ships. All four Ships being carried the 30th pail out of Pillau Harbour, by Pruffian Pilots, into Pillau Road, Dagenaer ftood with his Ship out to Sea, expecting that the other three would follow him. But one James Lamb, Mafter of the Hope, George Dougal, Mafter of the Jan-net, and fome Matters and Sailors of Britifh Ships lying in Pillau, having mann'd Boats, row'd off to the Road toob-ferve Dagenaer's Motions; and feeing him at fome Distance from the other Ships, Capt. Lamb row'd towards his Ship the Hope, which the Swedes on board of her feeing, aban-don'd the Ship, took to the Boat, and row'd aboard the other two Sh'ps ; fo that on Capt. Lamb's coming on board his Ship, and finding no body on board of her, he cut the Cable, hoifted the Englifh Flag, and fet Sail directly. Capt. Dougal feeing Capt. Lamb's Succefi, made what hafte he could towards his Ship, and the third Boat with Englifh Mailers and Sailors row'd at the fame time towards the third Ship the Prevention, which the Swedes fo foon as they were aware of, abandon'd both Ships, took to their Boat and row'd afhore. Capt. Dougal took poffeffion of his Ship, and the Mafters and Sailors of the Prevention ; both fet Sail directly, and following Capt. Lamb, all the three Ships arrived here in our Road the 31ft pail. Yefterday we had a Report in Town, that Dagenaer's Men having forced him to come ta an Anchor on the Pemeran Coait with the Difpatch the fourth Ship, which he commands, they had all left him, except four Men, fo that we hope the next News will be that he has abandoned his Ship like-wife. Their Excellencies the Lords Juftices have iffued a Proclamation, ordering a Reward of 30,0001. to any Perfon, who fhall feize and fecure the eldeft Son of the Pretender, in cafe he fhall land, or attempt to land, in any of his Majefty's Dominions.
