GravefenJ, Auguji 18. Pafs'd by the Poftillion, Lev�r, from Damzick. LONDON. ExtraS of a private Letter from Amjlerdam, Auguji 20, N.S. * After the Minifters of Pruffia and the'Ele&or Palatine, � had declared that they would aflift at no future Conferen-4 ccs, until the Grievances complained of in their Memo-4 rials fLould be redreffed, and proteiled againil every  Thing that might be refolved upon in thofe Conferences ; 4 eh? Miniller of Meniz, feconded by the Hanoverian 4 Minifter, and the Miniiter of Triers too, as we are afltt-4 red, piopofcd to open the Conferences for the Election of 4 a King of the Romans, Emperor ; but the Minifters of 4 Cologne, Saxony and Bavaria, having alledged that they 4 had no lnftrudtions the Propofal was dropt, nor can any 4 body foiefee when thofe Conferences may be opened. * The Grievances contained in the Memorials of the 4 Pruffianand Palatine Minifters, roul chiefly on the refto-4 ring the Activity of the Vote of Bohemia, the Freedom 4 of the Eleftors, and the Oath they agree to take. The  King of Pruffia and the Elector Palatine demand, that  thefe three Points be fettled by the Electoral College, be-4 fore they proceed to the Election, inafmuch as. two of 4 them are actually violated? tho' they are the moft effen-4 tial Part of the Golden Bull, which is the Foundation of 4 the German Conllitution and Liberties. 4 They wii.e from Drelden, that Count Bunau,whom the 4 King of Poland has appointed his iecond Embaffudur to ' the Dyet of Elcclion, was geit'ng ready his Equipages, 4 tut that in all appearand; it Would be three of four 4 Weeks yet before he lets our. * The King of Pruflia's Defign in aflembling fo many 4 Troops in brandenboutg, Hill appears a Myft-iy to us.  Few People can yet be perfuaded, that he intends to fail 4 upon Saxony. Some Politicians rather incline to think 4 that all thofe Troops will march towards the Rhine, upon 4 Pretence of fecuring the Freedom of the Imperial E-4 lection againft the Grand Dtk;'s Army. ExtraQ of a Letter from Hanover, Auguji 17, -N.S. 4 A Courier is juit arrived from Drefdeo, difpatched by 4 the King's Miniller there, with Advice, that the King 4 of Poland having been informed of all the falfe Reports 4 fpread by the Enemies of the Empire and the Common 4 Caufe, concerning the Difpofnions he is in with Rtfpect 4 to the approaching Election of an Emperor, his Polifh 4 Majefty fent for the faid Miniller, and declared to him, 44 That tho' he was fully perfuadtd all thofe Artifices *' were not capable of making the leaft Impreffion on his " Britannick Majefty, or creating any Sufpicions in him, 44 he was neverthelefs very glad to take this Opportunity to " renew his moil fokron and ltrong Affurances, that he /' never'would deviate in the lcaft from ail that had been 44 agreed upon and llipulated ; and that his Majefty had al-44 ready delivered to his Embaffudors, appointed for the " Dyet of Election, proper Orders and Inftructibns to be-*' have, agreeable to the pubhek Declarations formerly " made by him. 1 4 The Court has been ahogether as well pleafcd with 4 the laft Letters from Francfort, as with the above-4 mentioned Difpatches from Drefden ; thofe Letters im-"* porting, among other Things, that the Elector of Mentz 4 would cartainly be at Francfort the 23d of this Month ; ' that a bet:er Harmony was never Known among the 4 Electoral EmbaiTadors who have unanimoufly refolved to ' give the BranJenbourg and Palatine Minifters juft Satis-' faition on the Subject of their lalt Memorial, andt like 4 true Patriots, to jay afukr all private and ftlf-intereiled Vie-As, in order to let the Empire fpeedily have a Head 4 worthy of that high Dignity. We hear by the fame 1 Leuer, that it is reckoned the Conferences for proceeding 4 to that Election will be opened the 27th or 28th of this ',' Some Letters from Paris advife, that the Count de Clar-rr.r;-.- arrived there the nth Inltant, N.S. from the Army " in f'Lnders, and that when he took his Leave of the King, he Lid that his precarious State of Health did not permit him to fee the Remainder of the Campaign ; but many People will have it, that this Prince has left the Army in a S'jrt of Per, becaufe he wasiiot charged with the Direction "of the Siege of Oftend, preferable to Count Lowen- . dahl.. ^ Yefterday arrived an Exprefs from Portfmouth, with .Advice, that his Miajefty's Sloop the Shark was ppme into ' �hat Port, from Gibraltar i who has pn bpar^jCor^rnodore 'Cooper, and Capt.

Neptune, Torbay, Elisabeth, Dragon, and KennJngton.-And Admiral .Rowley, with the reit of the Fleet, is gone up to Genoa. We bear that when the Letters came away from Portfmouth on Sanday lalt, Admiral Vernon had juft made the ' Signal for failing. Yefterday- the Lords of the Admiralty ordered fix'Men of War to fail immediately for the Coafls of Scotland. We h'ear from Leverpool, that the Maft�r of a Veffel arrived there, hath made Oath before the Mayor of that Town, that the Pretender's Son is actually landed in Scotland, which Affidavit is tranfrnitted to London.
