General Advertiser (Newspaper) - August 8, 1845, London, Middlesex The General Advertifer. Numb. 3348. THURSDAY, August 8, 1745. Deal, Auguft 6. EMAIN in the Downs the Prince George, Duke, Dover, Wezel Sloop and iEtna Firefhip, with the Outward-bound. Came down and fail'd one of his Majefty's Yachts for Dover. Wind S. LONDON. Extracl sf a private Letter from Amfierdam, dated Aw gufi 13, NS. 1 The Joy occafioned by the Prince of Conti*s repairing ' the Rhine, did not Iaft fo long as was expected. We * Battered ourfelvej that the French being once removed ' from the Neighbourhood of Francfort, the Electoral � College wculd have proceeded forthwith to the Election * of an Emperor, and made Choice of the Grand Duke: ' But this Affair meets with more Difficulties than we ' imagined. The Elector of Cologne, who in the Begin- * ning fhe�ved hirnfelf a zealous Partizan of the Court of ' Vienna, feems to pull in his Horns now. It is true in-4 deed that the Affurances which his Electoral Highnefs ' gave, were far from being positive ; and that the Promife ' which he and the Elector of Triers made to give their ' V-otes for the Grand Duke, were chiefly grounded on * the Defeat of Prince Conti's Army, which molt People ' mightily depended on. But now that there is no Like- * lihood of cutting off that Army, thofe two Electors in- * {innate that their Territories lie more expofed than ever ; ' fince tl.* French King may, whenever he thinks fit, fend * an Army into thofe Territories, it being in no Body's * Power to prevent him. ' As to the King of Poland, it is very probable that * when his Poiifh Majeily heard of the French Army's re- * palling the Rhine, he gave Count Kevenhuller great ' Hopes that he w-uld favour the Intereft of the Grand iaJJ~acred for having betrayed the Elector. Letter from fio'ver, dated "July 6. ' This Morning came in the Speedwell Brig, of Sunder-' land, Pattifon, from Eaftbourue, who on Sunday Ev?n- * ing was attack'd by a French Shallop Privateer, off Ha-' ftmgs, who lay board and boird for the Space of two * Hour-, during which Time the Privateer enter'd a great * Nun )er of Hands ; but the Mailer and his People kept ' fo l'mart a Fire on them, from their Clofe Quarters, that ' the French thought proper to quit her, which they did ' in fo great a Hurry, that they left behind them fix ' Mufkets, three Piilols, three Pcle-Axes, feven Grana- * does, eight Stink-Pots, &c. The Crew of the Brigan-' ti.^e con lifted of five Men, three Boys, and the Mailer, ' who is wounded in the Bread by a Mufket Ball, and two ' of the Boys by Splinters, but none of them dangeroufly : ' They know not know how many of the French were ' flain, but they faw feveral fall. ' The Fubbs Yacht is arrived here, in order to carry ' over Marfhal Belleifle. Trie Mary Gaily Privateer, of Guernfey, is arrived at that Iftand, with four French Prizes, laden with Soap, Oyl, Wine, &c. fhe aifo took two other Prizes, who are net yet arrived ; and has on board feveral Raniomers.

They alfo took another Veffel, which is not yet arrived. The faid Privateers were left in fight of 80 French Coafters, under Convoy of three Men of War. Yellerday Advice came, that the Mediterranean, Capt. Allen, bound from Briftol to Bolton, is taken by a French IWan of War, and carried into Breft. On Monday lalt the Ruby Man of War, rebuilt at Buf-feidon in the Ifle of Wight, was launch'd in the Prefence of his Grace the Duke of Marlborough, the Lord Lyming-ton, Lord Harry Pawlejt, and many other Perfons of Di-llinction ; fhe is elteem'd as fine a Ship as any in the Navy, of her Rate.

Lalt Week the Prefbytery of Edinburgh tranflated the P.everend Mr. Robert Pollock, Minifter at Dodingfton, to b- one of the Minifters of the City of Aberdeen. Laft Week died at Wefton in Chefhire, the Rev.
