According to thefe Advices, the Spaniards qiiijtted the French Army only to cover Savoy, whither all tke| Troops belonging to Spain are marched i but nothing it tfaid of the feveral Thoufand Men, that are detach'd fori the Kingdom of Naples: Nor is it yet certain, that auj| Troops are arrived from Barcelona in that Kingdom. kitain has concluded a Treaty with the Elettor of Co-' lr>gne, by which his Electoral Higbnefs engages himfelf ' ti fnpply his Britannick Majefl$"wkh a Body of Troops, 1 ta ferve io the Allied Army*  It is added, that Baron ' Wafner, Minifter at London from the Emprefs-Queen, 4 received on the ioth paft an Expnfs from Vienna, the ' Difpatches brought by which he immediately communi-1 c&ted to the Earl of Chefterfield, Secretary of State ; ' aid that they contain a Provrfional Plan of the Difpofi-' tbns which ought tote taken, in order to aft with more Vigour againft Jr^ance and her Allies the next Campaign.' LONDON. The Spirit of the People in Holland, which during this *bole War has called out for a vigorous and full Oppofi-toa to France, is thought to have now fo far prevail'd on &e Government, that neither private Interefb, Promifes, lor any Thing elfe from the Side of Fraqce, will prevent ^tai from doing their utmoft to prefcrve their OlcT Allot- ment of Territory, after they have lpft the whole Barrier obtain'd by the Peace of Utrecht; Accounts it feems evident, that if the Allies have not yet pafs'd the Varo, they will have little or no Obftruttion in that PaiTage, except from the Stream, and that they have Provifions enough to fupport them under all the Difficulties the Enemy have endeavoured to create. They inform us from New-England, that the Government there fcnt three Companies of their Militia to Ana-polij Royal, upon the lull Notice they received of the Danger of that Place; and that one Company of this fame Militia was doing Duty at the Block-houfe there, when the laft Letters came away. There is Advice, that the John's Endeavour, Cokewell, from Burroftownefs to Norway and Hull, is taken by a French Privateer. There is the melancholly News, that the Francis, Fearfon, from Leverpool, is blown up by fome Accident on the Coaft of Africa ; and that all the Crew perifh'd, and 90 Slaves they had on board. We hear, there are Three of the Weft-India Merchant Ships, that were miffing, carried into Bilboa. On Sunday Night the Right Hon. the Earl of Rothes arrived at his Houfe in Brook-ftreet, from Flanders. On Tuefday Night his Grace the Duke of Hamilton arrived at his Houfe in Grofvenor-ftreet, from his Seat in Hampfhire. We hear the Hon. Harry Poulett Efq; is appointed Captain of his Majefty's Ship the Exeter, of 60 Guns, now*' at Plymouth. Laft Night Mr. Chandler, one of his Majefty's MefEen-gers went to the New Goal in Southwark, with a Reprieve for the Eight Rebels, who were under Sentence, for fix Weeks longer. Yefterday at the General Seffion of the Peace holden for the. City of London, at the Guildhall thereof, Jofeph Folbigg, and John Davis, two Carmen, were indicted and convicted, of very grofsly infuhing Sir Robert Ladbroke, Knt. one of the Aldermen of this City, in the pubtick Street, and endeavouring to drive a loaded Cart over that Gentleman, to the gTeat endangering his Life ; (an Offence the Carmen 0? this City are too commonly guilty of.) The Court was difpofedxo punifh them in an exemplary manner, fuitable to their Offence ; but at the lnterceflion of Sir Robert Ladbroke for Mercy, the Court Was pleafed to mitigate their Puniflunent, and ordered them only one Month's Imprifonment, in the Poultry Compter.-It is hoped this Punifhment, mild as it is, will be fufficient to deter other Carmen from committing the like Abufes'j the future. Yefterday came on in t;he Court of King's Bench at Weftminfter, before the Right Hon. the Lord Chief Ju-Ttice Lee, a very remarkable Caufe, in which an eminent Peruke-maker and Barber was Plaintiff, and Mr. Lane and Mr. Kerr were Defendants; upon an Action brought by the Plaintiff agaiflft the Defendants, for a fuppos'd malicious Profecution, the Defendants had brought againft the Plaintiff, for prophaning the Sabbath, (which Profecution was by the Dire&ion and Confeut of the Society of Barbers and Peruke-makers meeting at the Swan in the Butcher-Row ifear Temple-Bar, to fupprefs the abominable Practice of prophaning the Lord's-Days ; by pro-fecuting all and every Perfon, w"ho exercife their Bufinefs on thofe Days) and after a Trial of an Hour and a half, the Plaintiff was nonfuited. Yefterday Number 7,805 was drawn a Prize of 2000 1. 47,111, and 14,069 of 10001, each; and 26,661,281980, 34,976, z5,gifeor 1001. each drawn Yefterday a Prize of 10061. was jDttery-Office. , � Number 14; fold at Hazard's. -JL Newca/lle, Nov. 29. This Day Se'nnight died here very defervedby lamented, Mjfs Fenwick.eldelt Daughter of the Right Worfliipful Nicholas Fenwick, Efq; Mayor, and one of the Members of Parliament for this Town $ and oa Tuefday Night her Corps was interr'd in the Family-Vault in All Sain* Church. Laft Tuefday Mr. William Wilkinfon of Durham, in croffingthe River Wear, near the Old Ford, had the Misfortune to be drown'd. His Death is much lamented by all his Acquaintance. The following is the Sublhnce of a Speech fpoke lately to the People at Penrith. liverance of the Republick from Catiline's Confpiracy is accounted by that True Patrior, Cicero, an Event memorable enough from which to commence the Reckoning of their Liberty. The Greeks had their Olympick Garnet, whence they dated any notable Adlion : And We, of the Englifh Nation, want not Epochs:, fufiiciently fignal. -The Sixteenth of April, in the Year of our Great Reckoning, One thoufand fcven hundred and forty-fix, will long Hand in Hiftory, (next in Fame to the Conquell) as the Date of the Vittonous Arms of our Great Deliverer* the Duke of CUMBERLAND, over Rebellion, and its difmal Confequences. But to go back a little farther (which is the Reckoning thft Day in every Body's Mouth) I mean to the Time when a dirty, defperate, domineering Rebel Army entered our Streets; how different is our Situation Now to uhat we Then labour'd under.-Families were bioken and di-fperfed, to make Roorfl for the' Demands of each infolcnt Rebel. If a Regard for the Security of Property, or art undaunted Refolution to fee what Meafures were taken by a diftolute Mob, detained any one at Home, yet how forlorn his Condition, when feparated from the beloved Partner of his Bed, his Children, Relations, and every thing that was dear! The wildelt Hills, rendered ftili more frightful by the Inclemency of the Weather, were the difmal Places of Refuge for tender Mothers and helplefs In-1 fants. The Roads were filled with melancholly Cries ; whilft Fears, array'd in the m"oft ghaftly Forms, attended the unhappy Fugitive^-Uneafy for the thin Remains of ialH^ilv^at lYMI^aSh/fYp'd t(l thRmft;Iiyq p thn.lfanrt I Dangers; and the Circumftances of their Separation added Grief to all their other gloomy Reflections.-In every Corner Confufion reign'd. All Society was interrupted : For where could Friend-fhip or Neighbourhood fliew themfelves, when a civil Nod of the Head, or a Shake of the Hand* would have beea deem'd a Combination ? What ferved our Houfes for then, but a Neft of Robbers ? Nothing could efcape their rapacious Hands.-1 he Stomach (if Fear had not blunted its Edge) was not to have its Demands fatisfied, till the Harpies, that then preyed upon Us, were glutted, and the dirty Remains made loathfome enough to take away all Senfe of Appetite.-Can you remember this, Neig^hbpur% and not thank kind" Providence fi-r the prefent Enjoyment of happier Days r Can you remember your Sufferings then# and ever think of Lenity for thofe who were the Authors of them ? Have you forgot, in the Revolution of one Year, the Mifery and Diftrefs of your Wives and Children j your old and infirm Parents* and the Terrors that feparated chief Friends t Or, if you can forget your domeftick Con-jUMMMMO^W outlook.tke.�)��ger*ftat threatenM (what' is of far greater Confequence) your Country, your Religion, and Laws ? No, my Friends, thefe are Circumftances that rouft long demand a moft faithful Remembrance. You muft deieft the Meafures of thofe Times, and all the Abettors of them, if you regard the PubUck Weal, and our happy Eftablifhment in Church and State. If you with to enjoy the Bleffings of the beft-conftituted Government, if you value your own Happinefs, or regard your Pofterity, abhor the Traitor to his Country :-Steadily maintain the Caufe of our Religion and the Laws of the Land : Oppofe Popery and Arbitrary Power with all your Might and Main. Confider your fuffering Proteftanc Brethren in the Southern Parts of France : See how ripe for Perfecution is abigotted Religion, and how Diabolical the Practices of Rome1 Learn to value your Happinefs under a quite different Adminiftration : Blefs the Gracious Difpenfer of It, (underGod) our Sovereign King GEORGE: Let Heart and Hand unite in his Support. Pray for the Profperi'y of the llluftrious Proteltant Suc-ceffion in his Auguft Houfe ; And thus will you make a proper Ufeof this memorable Anniverfary. My Friends and Town/men, Penritb, Ncv.iy.
