ExtraS of a private Letter from Bmffels, Dec. 13.  The Preparations which the French are making both here in this Neighbourhood, and at Namur, are amazing. The Number of large Cannon ordered to be in Readinefs at Namur, amount to upwards of 109 Pieces, befides between 40 and 50 Mortars. 'Tis indeed a fine Train of Artillery, and will be attended, as 'tis given out here, by 60 Battalions and 40 Squadrons ; but, be that as it will, 'tis now certain they intend in fome Meafure to * make a Winter Campaign ; and, as the Pontoons and ' other Warlike Preparations are all ready, 'tis agreed on 4 all Hands, they only wait Marfhal Saxe's Arrival from ' Paris, to begin their Operations; but where the Blow ** will /all, no Mortal but themfelves can as yet tell.' LONDON. From the London Gazette. Amfterdam, Dec. 13, N.S. By Letters from France, of the 9th Inflant, we have an Account, that a Frigate call'd La Renomee, belonging to the Squadron under Duke D'Anville, was arrived at l'Orient ; and that two French Ships were come into Rochefort from China ; a Third, which failed from thence along with them, having been loft in the Voyage home, and only 50 Men faved. Befides the 20 Battalions, which were arrived in Provence, 23 Battalions more, and 20 Squadrons, were expected there foon, and zc other (Battalions were faid to be upon their March thro' Burgundy, in order to join Marfhal Belleifle. Hague, Dec. 13, N.S. By our Advices from Aix, Marfhal Belleifle,who arrived there upon the 27th paft, fet out from ' thence for Marfailles upon the 28th, and propofed to be at Toulon epon the iff Inftant, N.S. in order to vifit the Fonificatieiw upon the Coafts. Great Preparations were9 making to' flop the Progrefs of the Auftrians upon their Paffage of theVar. Letters from Liege of the' 9th Inflant mention, that a Detachment of French Troops had taken Poft at Dinant, and were fortifying the Head of the Bridge there. And it is written from Bruffels the 12th, that the greateft Part of the French Militia had been incorporated into their 'different Regiments in the Regular Troops. Whitehall, Dee.g. The King has been pleafed to grant �nto Etfmund Marten, Doctor of Laws, the Deanry of the Cathedral Church of Worcefter, void by the Death of Dr. James Stiilingfleet, late Dean thereof. ExtraH of a Letter from Louifbourg at Cape-Bret**, dated Nov. 8. We are all in high Spirits in thefe Parts, on Account of the ill Succefs of the French in their Expedition to Chebuctou, a Harbour about 70 Leagues to the Weft-ward of this 1'lace, where fince their Arrival they have buried about 2800 of the Soldiers and Sailors, and carried to Sea with thern 1700 Sick Men; and about 25 Days fince they burn^t^ Gun Ship of their own, and feveral Tranfporr. Ships, not having Men to carry them home.-In fhort, they departed from th;s Coaft in a moil melancholly Condition. Of all the Ships that failed from France for this Coalt, only fix of the Line arrived, with 36Trar,fports and Frigates, making in all 42 Sail.*3 -This Account you may depend on, for it is confirm'd by Capt. Hugh Scott of this Garnfon, who was fent with a Flag of Truce, to exchange Prifoners with the French at Chebuctou, and was by them detained two Days, whiift they were preparing to fail in a fad Confu-fion, which they did the third Day, and carried the faid Captain-Scott with them 20 Leagues S.W. from Cape Sables, when they let him go, and lay by till he was out of fight. They behaved with great Politenefs, and made him a Prefent of a good Sloop, in which he arrived here. By the Departure of this Fleet we are left in a perfect State of Security. Extrail / a Letter from Portfmouth, Dec. 8. / Laft Night arrived at Spitheadthe Kingfton and Dover Men of War, Part of the Squadron that feparated from Admiral Townfhend,,viz. Hampfhire, Kingfton, Hin-chinbroke-Sioop {and not the Hind as laft mentioned) Loufbourg Firelhip and a Storefhip, are not yet come in. Cape Brecon was left in the ftrongeft Defence poffible by good Fortifications; and had Mr. Towfhend had better Intelligence of D'Aayille's Strength, which was reported to be 28 Ships then at Chiboctou, about 70 Leagues to the Weftward of Cape-Breton, he would have gone down with all the '-hips at that Place, and at-tack'o/them there, and in all Probability with Succefs, as they were fo fickfy, and in bad Condition ; but as his In- , formations bad it was. thought impracticable. '� The Prise brflti|mr to -SplTEead Yefterday is run aground on the Spit coming into the Harbour this Morning, and'tis feafd will fuffer much in getting off.' We learn from the Hague, that the Negociations for a Peace will 11 ill go on, and that the Minifters will foon fet out again for Breda to open the Conferences. Our Advices from Jamaica inform us, that the Fleet of Merchani Ships bound for Europe failed on the 24th 0; October, andcorififted of 22 Sail for the Port of London, fix for Briftol, and three for Lancafter. They were to be convoyed thro' the Windward Paffage by a Man of War of 80 Guns, four of 60 Guns, two of 20, and a .Sloop ; but 'tis believed the Men of War will return to Jamaica, as foon as they fee the Ships fafe. The Letters mention, that they had a very dry Seafon, and the Crop Kkely to prove very fhort. They alfo inform us, that the following Perfons died lately in Jamaica, viz. William Campbell, Efq; Storekeeper, and his Son ; Mr. Thomas Beckford, Merchant ; Mr. Alexander Monteer, Mr- Robert Baldwin, Mr. Jo' Evans, and Mr. - Wheeler, Merchants j and Captain Thomas Pitts, formerly Commander of the St. Thomas Snow in that Trade. Laft Night there was Advice, that the-Norwich, Chip, bound from Mahone to Cork, was lately taken by the Gloria Privateer off Cape Clear, who put 12 Frenchmen on board, with Orders to proceed to the firft French Port they could make ; but by a ftrong Southerly Wind, fhe was drove into Briltol Channel, and there re-taken by two Fifhing Boats bejonging to Combe. Yefterday Mr. Chandler, one of his Majefty's Meffen-gers fet out for Scotland, to bring up to Town, as we hear, ibme Perfons of Diftioction. Yefterday the Lady of Charles Ratcliffe, Efq; who was beheaded on Monday laft, arrived in Town. And this Morning his Body will be carried out of Town, to be interr'd in Northumberland.

Prize was fold in Shares, in twe Halves, y at Hazard's Lottery Office. ' ^ As the following Piece contains the fulled and molt an-thentick Pi&ure of the State-of thele lflands under the Po-pifh Government of King James IF. and the ftrongeft Reafons for keeping eternally from the Brittfb Throne any Pretended Defcendantof his, or any other Pspifts whatfo-ever, we need make no Apology for giving it a Republication. The Declaration of his Hightiefs William Henry, by the Grace of God, Prince of Orange, tjfe. of the Reafons inducing him to appear in Arms in the Kingdom of England, for P/eJerving of the Proteftant Religion, and for Reforingtbe Laivs and Libertlet of '"England, Scotland and Ireland. IT is both certain and evident to all Men, that the Pub-lick Peace and Happinefs of any State or Kingdom cannot be preferved, where the Lawf, Liberties, and Cu-floms eftablifh'd by the lawful Authority in it, are openly ' tranfgreffed and annull'd ; More efpecially where the Alteration of Religion is endeavoured; and rhat {a Religion which is contrary to Law, is endeavoured to be introdue'd; , UptBT which, thtyjg wrHratgTTwft'jjByBediateiy concern'd in if; are indifpenfibly bound to endeavour to preferve and maintain the eftabliUied LawF, Liberties, and Cuftoms, and above all, the Religion and Worfhip of God that is eftablifh'd among them ; and to take fuch an effectual Care, that the Inhabitants of tbe faid State or Kingdom, may neither be deprived of their Religion, nor 01 their Civil .Rights: Which is fo much the more neceflary, be-caufe the Greatnefs and Security both of Kings, Royal Families, and of all futh as are in Authority, as well afethe Happineis of their Subjects and People, depend in a moft efpecjal manner, upon the exact Obfervation and Maintenance of thefe their Laws, Liberties and Cuftoms. * 2. Upon thefe Grounds it is, that we cannot any longer forbear to declare, that to our great Regret, we fee that thofe Counsellors who have now the chief Credit with thtf King, have overturned the Religion, Laws and Liberties of thofe Realms, and fubjected them in all things relating to their Confciences, Liberties and Properties, to Arbitrary Government, and that not only by fecret and indirect ways, but iri an open add undifguiled manner. ring this with fome plaufible Pretexts, did invent, and fet on foot the Kings Difpenfing Power ; by virtue of which, they pretend, that according to Law, he can fufpend, and difpence with the Execution of the Lqnvs^ that have; been enacted by the Authority of- the King anilParliament, for the Security and Happinefs of the Subjects, and fo have rendered thefe Laws of no Effect; tho' there is nothing more certain, than that as no Laws can be made, but by the joint-Concurrence of King and Parliament, fo like-^te wife Laws fo enacted, which fecure the publiek Peace and Safety of the Nation', and the Lives and Liberties of every Subject in it, cannot be repealed or fufpended but by the fame Authority. 4. For tho' the King may pardon the Punifhment that a Tranfgreffor has incurred, and to which he is ftukjBn'd as in the Cafes of frtafin or Felony ; yet it canA'be with any Colour of Reafon inferred from thence, tharthe King can entirely fufpend the Execution of thofe Law^ relying to Treafon or Felony, unlefs it is pretended, that he is clothed with a Defpotick and Arbitrary Power; and that the Lives, Liberties, Honours, and Ellates of the Subjects vdepend wholly op his good Will and Pleafure, and are entirety fub-jecttohim, which muft infkUtU% follow, on tne*King'a WM WWA XUJuJplMt HW'B�ll|il>u Of tux ZWj, mk to difpenfe with them. * 5.
