Franckfsrt, Dec. 8. After the Return of Count Cobent-scl, the Imperial Minifter, who is gone to vifit the feveral Courts of the Empire, the Affair of the Aflbciaticn will be pafhed with more Vigour than ever. This Return will be about Chriftmas. The Circle of Franconia has already contented, and refolved, among other Thing?, 1 That * Orders mould be fent to theDiclatorial Deputies at Franc-4 fort to conform thereto ; and that in cafe the Margrave of 4 Anfpach refufes to fend M. D'Albert, his Councellor, to ' the ConereT, the Affembly of the Circle will authorife * the Minifter of Bamberg to take upon him the Direction ' of the faid Congrefs.'

Confufion and Diltraction have tor the laft eight or ten Days reign'd in their Councils; tho'all imaginable Care, nay the utmoft Rigour is ufed to conceal it from the World.' cf the on LONDON. From the London Gazette. Whitehall, December 5'. This Morning arrived at hij Grace the Duke of Nevccajlle's OJ:cf, cue cf bis Majejiy"s Meffengers, with Difpatcbes fr:m Mr. Filettes, his Majijiys Minijier at the Court of the King of Sardinia, containing the Advices. Nice, December \) N.Z. THE PafTage of the Var was attempted and executed with the grer.telt Succefs Yefterday Morning. The whole Army maahed in fix Columns, five of Intantry to the Right, and one of Cavalry to the Left. The Body that was the mofl to the R'ght, was defign'd to be the Van Guard, and, by paffing the uppermoft Part of the River, to take the f^w Polls of the Enemy in their Flank ; upon which, and c�eir making a Signal, the other Column* were to advance, and inarch thro' the Water, each them led {by Peafants, who were acquainted with Fording Places. General Brown feeing broad Day-light coming a-pace, before the Body on the Right had p-ffed-, ordered the Signal to be given from-the Wing on the Left, and began to fire very brifkly with his Cannon, Wi.ich was ad- , mirably polled in the Village of St. Laurent, and a" ltfortg "t Redoute the French had at the Entrance of it. L'ponthij, the Croatian* and Lycanians, with 12 Companies of Grenadiers, in.the Column commanded by Gen. Petazzi, entered the River, and bravely waded tbro' it, tho' very dtcp and rapidjn fome Places ; in which they were feconded by the HufTars and the Cavalry. Upon their Approach to the other Side, the French in the Redoute S'ed fome _hundred Shot; but upon feeing the HufTars rua up the Bank on their Left, to take them irL the Rear, they left the Redoute, and fled with the utmoft Precipitation. Our Grenadiers pufhed forward, and not only fecured the R;doJte, but likewife got on the Mountain, where they took Poll, while the Croatians, Huffars, and ofher Irregular*, purfued the Enemy on the Road to Cagne. Upon General Brown's getting over, he difpofed oi the Head of his Cavalry fo as to maintain theGiound he had gained, and then haftencd to the Right, in his Way to which, he heard Geffltrlif Novati. had paflM--*nd �cured all the Polls on that Side, ar,d that the ether Columns bcu: 30 or 40 Men dfowfced in the PafTage ; and it is not thought the Number of the Killed and Wounded can amount to fomany. " Vice Admiral Medley being arrived on the 29th of November, N.S.' in Villa Franca Harbour, and having, in purfuance of a Plan fettled between him and the Au-flrian General, ordered the Phoenix, Terrible Sloop, and the Barcolongo (on board of which a Party of German Soldiers were embarked) with eight Pinnaces, under the Command of Captain Frfrbes, to take Stations along the Shore to the Weftward of the Var ; thev llationed them-felves accordingly, and at Day-break made a very bnfk Fire upon rJbe French Poft to the Left of the Village of St. Laurent, and did fo great Service, that General Brown gave the greateft Encomiums of the Behaviour of the Engiifh Seamen, crying out aloud feveral Times, that they had bravely feconded him, and contributed to his Succefs, by fcouring away every thing that appeared upon the Shore, and thereby gready kicreafing the Diforder and Confter-nation of the Enemy. Nice, Dec. 2, N.S. By our Advices this Night from the other Side of the Var, our Army has fecured Vence, and was preparing to march to GrafTe. The Countsy hitherto is totally without Inhabitants ; and the Frencn burn and deftroy all the Subfiftance they can, as they retire.

His Sardinian Majefty, who had the firft Appearance of the Small-Pox, on the 22d paft in the Morning, is now, God be thanked, in as good a way as can be wifhed, the Symptoms continuing to be very favourable, and the Sma'" Pox beginning already to turn. On Monday the 28th paft, an Officer arrived here, d patched from the Count la Minte, who commanded the Blockade of Tortona, with an Account, That all the Conditions relating to the Surrender of that Place mm^rp Hands, having been finally adjufted and fettled with the SpaD.ifh Governor, he had retaken PofTeffion of it in the Name of the King of Sardinia.
