The Draper, Bafnet, from ditto, at Cowes. The Bleffing, Andrews, frum Leverpool, in the River. LONDON. Extracl of a private Letter from Amfterdam, dated the 3 1 ft of Auguft, N.S.  Mr. Tievor received a few Days fince an Exprefs from Hanover, with a Manifello ef the King of Pruffia, which M. Andrie, his Pruffian Majelty's Minifier, r>ad delivered to the Larl of Harrington, with a Requelt not to communicate it jet to any Body wha:foever, but efpe-ciaily no; to the Hanoverian Minihry. Neverthelefs, Count Fleming, the Saxon Miniiler at Hanover, was ioon informed of it, and fpoke to M. Andrie about it who, telling Count Fleming that he knew nothing of the Matter, went to the Earl of Harrington, to expof-tulate with him about his communicating the Manifello in Queltion, notwithstanding his Requelt tothe contrary : To which his Lordfhip made Anfwer, That he faw no Realon why fuch a Piece, which was actually in Print, ought to be concealed. As that Manifello did not appear afterward any where elfe ; as M. Ammon, the Pruffian Minifier at the Hague, had not received any Copies of it, and that Letters from Berlin of the 24th Inilant, did not make any mention of it, we naturally concluded here, that the King of Pruffia caufed it to be communicated to the Earl of Harrington only by Way of Menace ; and in order to found the Court, and that his Pruffian Majefiy withdrew it afterwards : And, upon thefe Appearances, it was confidently given out, that the King of Poland had made his Peace with the King of Pruffia. But all thefe Conjectures have vanifhed fince the Arrival of a Courier which M. Ammon received Yellerday Morning from Berlin, with the Manifello in Qiieition, which he has communicated to their High-Mightineffes, and by which it p'ainly appears, that the Pruffians are going to enter into Saxony. This Manifello, which is to be feen in the Gazette of :his Place, is drawn up in very flrong Terms, but not without fome harfh Reflections and bitter Reproaches. ' They write frcm Hanover, thr.t Count Fleming, Mini it :-r from the King of Poland, i13s declared there, that the inftructions delivered to the Count de Loos, Second Einbaffador from Saxony to the Dyet of Election, could not be better, nor more fatisfactory, if they had even been drawn up at Vienna, or in his Britannick Majefty's Council : So that they are in great Hopes of feeing the Election carried in Favour of the Grand Duke, unlefs this new War between the Courts of Berlin and Drefden fhould prove a Bar to it, by the Effect it may have on fome other Electors. ' We have indeed received Advice of the Arrival of the 'Qount de Loos at Francfort, but are Hill quite in the Dark, in regard to the Nature of his Jnftructions. It is furprizing that the Saxon Minilters did not affift at the Third Conference about the Election of an Emperor, which was to have been held the 25th Inftant, but was purpoiely deferred till the next Day, that the Count de Loos might be prefent. 'The Capitulation granted toOltend is more honourable than we expected, fince they have been allowed to ferve wherever their Principals fhall think proper. We begin to be under great Apprehenfions for Bruffeis. * Advices from good Hands fay, that tho' France dif-owns the Defigns formed by the Pretender or his Son, to make a Defcent in Scotland, and even affect to treat it as a chimerical Enterprize, it is very well known, that this Project is of the Court of France's Contrivance ; and that after fhe has done her Bufinefs in Flanders, her Intention is to make Ufe of the Port of Oltend for embarking Troops for the Pretender's Service : But we don't doubt bat the Englifh Navy will block up fuch an Embarkation.' The Trorapeur, Capt. Jean Watel, a French Privateer of four Caniage Guns, and 39 Men, is taken by the Car-lifle Privateer, and brought into Dover. The Samuel, Moon., is arrived in the Downs, from Millord ; who on Saturday laft about a Mile from Dunge-nef?, engag'd a French Privateer of three Guns, and 50 Men, for three Hours ; the Samuel had but five Men, three Swivel Guns, and four Mufkets. The Dove, and Cork Packet, are arrived at Briftol from Cork, which Place fhe left laft Wednefday, and fays, that the Prince Frederick, and Duke Privateers, with their Prizes, and the three Men of War, appointed to Lonvoy them, were to fail from Kinfale on Sunday Morning laft, fo that an Account of their Arrival at Briftol, is hourly expected. Letters from Antigua, of the 14th of July bring Advice, that his Majefty's Ships the Lynn, and Deal Cattle, failed for England, with the Trade, from the Leeward-Iflands, on the 12th of July. Yelterday came Advice, that a French Ship of 300 Tons, bound from Breft for Hamburgh or Dunkirk, is brought into the Downs by the Charming Molly Privateer, Capt. Craven. The Hanover Packet, Capt. Enough, failed from Falmouth, on the 2zd Inltant, with the Mail for Lifbon. The Union, Potter, from Carolina, is arrived at Plymouth.-This is the Ship which was re-taken by the Captain Man of War. Yefterday the Lords of the Admiralty appointed Captain Moore, to be Commander of the Ferret Sloop of War. Their Royal Highnefles the Prince and Princefs of Wales, were laft Night at the Spring-Gardens, Vaux-hall. Laft Week Mr. Thomas Nightingale, an eminent Flax-Merchant of Maidltone, was married to Mifs Alicia Baxter of the fame Place ; a beautiful young Lady, with a confiderable Fortune. A few Days fince died Mrs. Alton, Relict of Richard A (ton of Wadley in Berks, Ffq; and Mo;her of Sir Wil-loughby Alton, Bart, to whom her Jointure of 1000 I. defcends. On Saturday died at Crawford in Kent, Mr. Marlton, a wealthy Canterbury Factor. Yelterd-'v Morning early died Mr. George Elderton, Son to Mr. Elderton, Apothecary to Bethlem Hofp.ul, and Apprentice of Mr. Harr^on, Surgeon to the London Infir mary.-His Death was occafionVI by his Skull being fraftur'd in an unnappy Squabble in Fenciiutch-lireet absut a Fortnight ago. He was a very hopeful young Gentleman, and is much regre.ted by his Relations, and all that knew him. Yefterday a Reprieve came to the New Goal in South-wark, for Owen Mackheirl, condemned at the jalt Affizes for the County of Surry, for robbing Mr. Wood, a Culiom-houfe Officer ; and alfo for John Opchurch, f r Murder : They are both ordered to be Transported for .4 Years. On Friday laft John Whetilone, James Dowdale, John Buiket, Edward Breedin, William Hughes, and John Philips were committed to Bridewell, by Mr. Alderman Bake;-, for being concerned ia divers Felonies and Robberies, and in particular for robbing tv\o Gentlemen about a Fortnight ago near Iflington ; one of a Gold Watch, and the other of two Guineas and 10 s. with a Purfe. Fhe faidGen:le-man by applying at the Sitting Alderman's Office, Guildhall, may hear further as to the laid Robberies; for it will be of great Advantage to the Publick if the above Offenders meet with their due Punifhment, and do not efcape for want of Profecution. SCOTLAND. Edinburgh, Aug. 20. That an Attempt is actually made to invade this Kingdom, and a Landing in the Highlands of feveral Parties, who, 'tis faid, have poffeffed the Dtliles of Lochaber, feems pretty certain. It is look'd upon as a happy Circumtlance, that the Lyon Man of War had mattered the Elizabeth, the French Ship, which had on board Money, Arms, &c. to aililt in that daring Attempt, by which means fhe was obliged to return and refit, a;epli, ;.d other*.
