LONDON. ttxtra&of a Better from theHague, Sept. \. * The Retreat, of % he Allies over the Maefe, at a Time wheh we were told, they' only wanted an Opportunity to give Battle to Count Saxe, did at firft give us fame Surprize j but bur �rave men are now finding a Reafon for this Movement, with which we ought at prefeht to be very well contented. It was not: made; they fay, to avoid fighting the French ; but in order to be able to fight them at a greater Advantage. The Reinforcements coming from cermany, fince the Enemies have got Matters of the Maefe, cannot join Prince Charles by the Way intended, and theArtillery, which was very much wanted, can neither be of an^ Service at Maef-tricht, nor does there appear to be, any Way of getting it from thence. It was therefore neceflary to fecure a Communication with a friendly Country, by feme other River, and none was-left proper for that Purpofe but the MojelJe, By that Way, it is thought, even the Britifti Troops muft come up, and we need not doubt, but the Auftrians have prosper Inftru&ions. ' A decifive Battle, between the whole Strength of the Powers of War, is a Thing that fometiftjes does not happen in feveral Campaigns i snd fo much depends upon it, that it ought not to be rafhly rifled; efr/ecially when there is a View of doing it with better Profpett by a fhort Delay. rFhis is certainly now the Caff wuh the'Allies, whotxpeft not only a Reinforcement of Auftrians, and the Britifh Battalions of w'hofe Landing we had an Account, but the 6000 Bavarians taken into" the Pay of the Maritime Powers, and now upott the March up the Danube. ' As to Namur and Maeftricht, the Enemies have certainly an Opportunity of fetting dosvn before either, or ho.hof them, if they think properBut theQueftion is whether this will be prudent in them, when by fo doing, they muft leave the Allies at Liberty to live'at free Quarter either in lamia or Champaign, as they fhall think proper. And the taking ofia ftrong' Town, tho' it be, the laft of the Dutch Barrier, it is believed, the French, will not think equivalent to the ravaging of a whole Province or two in ancient France, which has not yet felt the Effects of the War, othetwiie than by the Contributions they have paid. ' Betides, .we are in hopes that while Prince. Charles waits for Reinforcements; M. Saxe willljiave quite contrary Expectations. An Irruption into Provence; *of which there is now great Probability,would* call for many of the Troops from the Netherlands, efpecially if the Spaniards, as is credibly given out,,would leave the French to fhift for themfeives in their Retreat from Loin-bardy.' It is confidently affirmed, that there, are certain Schemes forrn'd, and are immediately to be, put in Execution, which will in all Probability Re-pay the Court of Frahoe, far the Calamities. fhe brought on the Inhabitant? of this Kingdom, by fomenting and encouraging the late Unnatural Rebellion; and for breaking the Faith of All the Treaties fhe bad made with All the Powers which fhe is now at War with.-^-To which let every True-Briton fey Amen. Yefterday a Draught was mada out of each Company of the Second Regiment of Foot Guards, in order to com-pleat the Number of Men in the Battalion of the faid Regiment that arefpeedily to embark lor Flanders. Buckingham-houfe in St. James's Park being repaired, and fitted up, Mr. Sheffield and his Family are removed into it. On Thurfday Morning was retaken and brought into the Downs, by one of the Folkftone Cotters, the Brigan-tine that was taken by the Privateer oft* Broad-ftairs, as mention'd in our Papers of Yefterday. On Thurfday laft about Neon died, at Richmond in Surry, aged near 80, the Rev. Mr. Coleare, Curate of Richmond, and Vicar of Thiftlewerth, in Middlefex* two good Livings, divided only by thefineft River in the World; the former is in the Gift of the Rev. Mr. Comer, Vicar of Kingfton, in Surry, who its thought will take the fame himfeiF, being about 300 L per Annum, and the latter is in the Gift of the Provoft and Fellows of Eton. -^The Vicar of Kingfton has five Chappels in his Difpo-fel, viz. Richmond, Kew, Peterfham, Moulfey and Thames-Ditton. ^J3n Tuefday laft died Mr. Jonathan Lees of Manchcfter, in the 71ft Yeaf of his Age* a Gentleman univeriajly known, and e&em$, ' He had carried on an ex^enfive Buflnefs, and has gone thro' Lift with thegreateft Reputa-' uon and Honour, defervedly beloved by all, and whofe Death is greatly lamented. Yefterday came on at the CourttHoufe adjoining to Weftminfter-Hall, before the Commiffioners of Shores for the City and Liberty of Weftminfter, the Election for a Bailiff, Collector, Summoner and Cryer of the faid Court, in the room of Mr. John Wilfon, deceafed/ for which there were feveral Candidates.

SCOTLAND. Gldfgvw, Aug. t8. Ori Friday laft Orders arrived^TSfft for taking oft* the Embargo on Ships.. We hear from Hamilton, that at the laft Meeting of die Juftlces, Warrants ^vere granted for apprehending atad bringing to Jirfttce one Miller; for giving a falfe and malicious fnfbrmation againft one of .his Neighbours to a Party of Soldiers marching that Way, which occafxoned hU Houfe to be pillaged, and his Horfes to be carried dF j but as fooo as the Commander of the .Party underftood his Miftake, and was rightly infqrm'd of the Man's Character, he expreffed hipfelf very forry for what had been done, ordering the Horfes, &c. to be returned, land difcovewd the Informer, that he might be'punched as his Crimes de-ferves.
