General Advertiser (Newspaper) - August 26, 1845, London, Middlesex Numb.. 3363. MONDAY, August 2ut as ' the faid Pruffian Minifter did not impart it to any Body ' elfe, we began to doubt the Truth of this .Report ; 'till ' at laft we have found it true, feveral printed Copies of ' that Piece being difperfed here, which contains1 in Sub-' fiance, " That the very Moment Saxony, fi^njfhecj Suc-" cours laft Year to the Queen of ftangary, ,;hi� Pruffian; " Majefty might very well have looked upon that Step as' " an Aft of Hoflility that authorized him to behave to-'** wards the Court of Drefden, in the fame Manner as the '* Queen of Hungary has done in regard to the Elector Pa-" Jatine ; /ince this Prince's Behaviour to the Court of Vi-'� enna did not differ from the Elector of Saxony's Con-" dud with Refpeft to his Pruffian Majefty; but that his " Majefty feeling an extreme Repugjn.anc4. to imitate the " Court of Vienna, who'makes no" Diftin�3&>nj between an " Auxiliary and a Partyyat War, he made amicable Pro-" pofals to the King of Poland immediately after the Death " ofjthe,late Emperor: {That all jiis Endeavours proved " fruitlefs; bec.aufe,iSajfony had built mightily on the , V, "JitHy of Wartaw; and that, befides, a Complication " of Paflions, and perhaps the private Intereft of the Mi-" tufters, had hindered, the Sovereign from Iiftening to " thefe Propofals. That it was well kftpwn,,. that in the " Secret Articles of the laid Treaty, the Court oLDrefden "was promifed confiderable Ceffions in Silefia, befides " making the Crown of Poland Hereditary in the Saxon. " Family. That in order to execute the concerted Plan of *' Conquell, the Saxon Troops actually entered Silefia.. " but their Projects were totally defeated by the Victory at " Friedberg ; notwithttanding which, they ftill cooly main-" tained at Drefden, that they were not at War with Pruf-" fia, fince they had not attacked his Hereditary Domini-" ons, but only the new Acquifitions." ' To fhew the Fallacy of this Pretence, and the Injuftice of the Court ' of Drefden's Proceedings grounded thereon, the Mani-' ietto rehearfes the King of PrulTia's Conduct towards Sax-' ony from the Beginning of the War in Bohemia, accom-' panies it with fome Reproaches, alcribes to his Polifh ' Majefty  enus and jealous Sentiments, and an unjuji ' and ungovernable Ambition ; and then maintains, that ' Si/ejia is an Inheritance of his Prnjjian Majefty s Ancef-1 tors, incorporated ivith his other Dominions by t^e ^Treaty 4 of Brejlau. Suppofing afterwards, that the Entrance of ' the Saxons in Silefia muit not be looked upon as an Hof-' tility, the Manifetto alledges hoftile Acts committed in 4 the New Marcke, which is undoubtedly Part of his 4 Pruffian Majefty's ancient Patiimony; and for this the 4 Reader is referred to a Verbal Procefs annexed to the * Manifello. The Court of Drefden is moreover charged , 4 with having violated the Pruffian Territory, ftopped the ' King's Recruits and Soldiers, and ufed very unfair In-1 trigues and Machinations to breed a Quarrel between his 1 Pruffian Majefty and the Polifb Nation. Then the Ma- * nifelto adds, 41 That notwithHanding all this., the King " tried again to bring about an Accommodation between 44 him and the Court of Drefden, but in vain ; fo that the " only Courfe he can nqw take is* to repel Force with 44 Force 4 and concludes in thefe Terms:' 44 The King's " Intention is to bring an ambitious and irreconcileable 44 Prince into moderate Sentiments; and whatever Advan-44 tages his Majefty's Armies may gain in the Operations 44 they are going to commence in Saxony, he will always 44 be ready to li(ten to fuch Propofals as may be made 44 him, provided they be equitable, and that they contain 44 nothing incompatible with his Glory ; and in difplaying t4 his Firmnefs and VigoHr on the other Hand, he is not 44 lefs difpos'd to give Proofs of his Greatnefs of Soul, and 44 his Moderation on all Occafions." 4 Since this Manifefto appeared we have received Advice 4 that the Pruffian Troops, to the Number of 26 or 27000 4 Men have dtawn near Halle, and are now but 2 Leagues 4 diftantfrom the Saxon Army : fo that we daily expect ( fome important News from that Quarter.' On Saturday laft his Majefty's Barges, together with thofe belonging to the Admiralty and Navy, fell down the River to the Nore, to wait his Majefty's Ariival. We have Advice from Copenhagen that the Scheme ef Dagenaer, the Privateer, or Pyrate, is entirely deftroy'd , for his Men (who were all either decoy'd or forced) having deferted him, he ran the Ship afhore near Dantzick, where be left her, and immediately fled into a Polifh Convent. On Saturday came Advice that the Efcape, Beardy, from London, for Oporto, is taken by two F'rench Privateers, and carried into St. Maloes. A Ship from South Carolina is re taken from a French Privateer, by his Majefty's Ship the Captain, Capt. Griffin, and fent into Plymouth. Laft Saturday was fhipp'd at the Tower 30 -Pieces of Brafs Cannon, with their Carriages, for Holland, for the Ufe of the Englifh Forces in Flander�. Yefterday was married at St. Dunfhn's Stepney, Mr. Stonehoufe, an eminent Brewer in Limehoufe, to Mifs Fa>r-child, Daughter of Roger Fajrchild, Efq; of Hinckley in Leicefterfhire, a beautiful young Lady, with a confiderable Fortune. Yefterday died, athisHoufe in the Grange, Southwark, Mr. Chandler, a wealthy Fellmonger, who acquir'd a plentiful Fortuue, with a fair Character. On Friday laft a Reprieve came tq the New Goal, Southwark, for Robert Crifp, condemh'd at Kingfton Affizes, for robbing his Mailer, Mr. Monk, in the Borough.
