General Advertiser (Newspaper) - August 30, 1845, London, Middlesex N villi 367, F R ID AY, August A30, 1745. | Finland De&ly Auguft 28. EMAIN his Majcfty's Ships the Royal George, Admiral Vernon; the St. George Ptince.^Gtorge, Duke, Sancftvich, "Diver,." Glou-cefter, anct Maryi the^tnia and Scipio Fireihfps; two Dutch Men of War, and the Outward-bound. Wind N.W. Gravtfend, Auguft 28. 'Pafs'd by Lad/ Mar/, Geddes, from LONDON. ExtraSl of a Letter from a General Officer in the Sp^anifb Army, dated from the Camp before Tortoria, Auguji 12, MS. � " ' It was on the 4th Inftant! that we invefted Torjona, ' and the Trenches, which we opened the .8th, at, Night, r were carried on fuccefsfully within 100 Toifes of the * Place. A falfe Attach that we made at the fame Time ' on the Caftle, favoured our Work, which the Befieged ' knew nothing of till Break of Day : Then they fired * very brifkly on our Workmen, but without killing more ' than one Man at firft, and wounding ten: We have fince * had 40 Men killed or wounded, and among the latter two * Officers. Four Dayi will be enough to carry the Town, * and we are already preparing for"the Attack of the Cita-' del, which is pretty well foitified and proyijded with Ne-� ceffaries, fo that we forefee it will coil us not a little � Trouble, nor a few Lives; but we {hall certainly not ' give it over till we have mattered it. The Artillery that * we are to employ in this Siege confifts of 100 Battering-' Pieces, and 30 Mortars. We expedt every Day M de * Pingaron, with feveral hundred Gunners and Matrofles, ' and alfo ihe Troops coming from Orbitello; and M. de * Mirepoix with his 13 Battalions of French. M. de Lau- * tree flays in the Mountains with f8 more French Batar-' lions* Some more Reinforcements arc getting ready for ' us in 'France, Spain and Naples ; fo that thefe three ' Crowns will have 100,000 Men in Italy by the Clofe of * the Campaign, if a Peace be not made. ' Letters from Munich obferve, that the Council has af- * fembled of late oftener than ufual, and Couriers were * coming and going conltantly between that City and Han-� ov�r: They add, that a great Promotion of Officers is to � be made very fpeedily in the Elector of Bavaria's Troops. � Other Letters from Munich (by the Way of Ratifbon) ' fay, that the Bavarian Miniftry are divided in their Sen- * timents, wi;h regard to the Meafures to be purfued in the � prefent Juncture; but, ncverthelefs, that the Appearances * of the approaching March of a Body of the Elector's * Troops grow ftronger every Day. We hear, that the Election of an Emperor will come on fooner than was expected, on Account of the King of Pruma's entering the Electorate of Saxony ; that there is not a: prefent any Reafon to doubt of the Duke of Tufca-ry's being chofen ; and that as foon as the Election is over feveral Princes of the Empire, will affemble a numerous Army, which, acting in Conjunction with thofe already on foot, in favour of the Houfe of Auftria, will be able to overturn the Ambitious Schemes of the Court of France, and her Unnatural Allies. By the Mail from Lifbon we have Advice, that the Goes a Dutch Man of War, Capt. Sappins of 6oGims, and his Majefty's Snip the Shoreham, Capt. James Ofborne, with a large Fleet of Merchant "Ships from London, laft from Plymouth, arrived at Lifbon the 7th of Augiilt, N.S. arid that on the 16th following the Shoreham fail'd on a Cruize. On the ziit of Auguft his Majefty's Ships the Dragon, Capt. Watfon, and the Kennington, the Honourable Capt. George Edgcomb, were in Port at Lifbon, as were alfo the Hardwick, Capt. Sampfon, the Great Britain, Capt. Williams, two Privateers of 40 Guns each, belonging to London. His Majefty's Ships the Effex, Capt. Hughes, and the Antilope, Capt. Scott, fail'd from Lifbon the 30th of July, to join the Fleet under Admiral Rowley in the Streights, and when the Packet fail'd from Lisbon, the 24th of Auguft N.S. his Majefty's Ships the Blandford, Capt. Dobb,:' M-derney, Capt. Toms, Greyhound, Capt.Bonfoy, and the Ferret, Capt. Douglas, were all cruizing on' the Coaft of Portugal. There is Advice that the Sarah, Hadley, from Carolina, is taken by a French Privateer, and carried into St. M aloes. And that another Ship from Carolina is taken and car. ried into Bayonne ; but her Name is not mention'd. Yefterday there was an Account that the Catherine of Bourdeaux, La Liberie, is taken by the Fox Privateer, and carried into Waterford. Yeiterday the Lords of the Admiralty appointed Captain Mtmtague to be Captain of the Montague, a 60 Gun Ship, which will fpeedily be launch'd at Deptford. Their Lordfhips have ordered to be built, at Wells's Dock at Deptford, two Packet Boats, who are to be em-floy'd in carrying ExprefTes to and from Jamaica. Early Yefterday Morning an Exprefs arrived from Scotland, the Contents of which are not generally known ; but feme pretend that it relates to the Rebels, or rather Rabble, having had Succefs in the Highlands.-And fuppofitig it true, they may be compared to the Street-Robbers laft Winter, who went on unpunifh'd, till the Magiftracy exerted themfelves, and broke their Knot, by tying a much ftronger for them at Tyburn. Laft Week died at Newport in the Ifle of Wight, the Rev. and Learned Mr. Bloom, a Gentleman well verfed in the Eaftern Languages, and Author of feveral excellent Tracts of Divinity. - Yefterday in the Afternoon about fiveo'Clock, Mr. Rofe, : an Uphbllterer in Wiapjiiqg, was Attacked between Bromley anji /Bdw,; !*sfe*Ww)�o| JpbbVi jiim of :'Erdven Sbillfneft aria them 'njads off,, casing Jbim by his would fheot him if he offered to Tim, iN^e^nd fwejarjuig, they wc , follow*hem. Laft Monday was^ommitted to his Majefty's. Goal in St. Dunftan's Canterbury, one Thomas Sumner, charged upon the Oa(h of John Finnis, John Crouch, and William Fhinis, with,fe!onioofly.kiUing.Samp(btt Wanftall of Eaft-Langdon near Dover, on a fudden Quarrel and fighting between them, for which he ezpreffes great Concern. The Servant of the Rev. Dr. Baker, who fell upon, the Iron-fpik'd Rails, in getting over his MafWs Gate, as mention Yefterday, is fince dead. Laft Saturday was committed to Horfham Goal, in Suf-fex, one Jane^ Lee,/or.the Murder of.her Baftard-Child, "at Southampton, by cutting its Throat, and afterwards tthrowing it into the River.
