Utrrcht, Dec. 30. We have this Day received upon the mod exact Information concerning the Revolt of the Ge-noefe, and its Confequences, by two Letters from Genoa, one dated the 9th, and the other-the 11 th Inftant, when the Commotion which had been in the City, was removed into the neighbouring Villages. This Account contradicts all we had before received upon the Subject from Leghorn and Parma. � December the 5th in the Evening, there were fome ' Appearances of a Tumult in one of the Quarters of the ' City of Genoa. They were raifed by the Common the Infurgents got Poffcffioh of all the Magazines and Artillery. * To-day the 11 th, we begin to take Breath again in the Capital, after Five Days of mod terrible Commotion ; but the general Scene of Things is not changed. The Carnage is only removed into other Parts of this State, and extends itfelf along both the Eaftern and Weftern ' Coafts, The Auftrians are getting back to tht Defiles,  and the Paffages of the Mountains, purfued ftill by the ' Subjects of this Republick, who feem refolved to force ' their Way to Savona, in order to raife the Siege of that  Citadel. - To this Account of the Revolt of the Genoefe, we wih add the few remarkable Particulars that may be collected from other Articles, Another Caufe is affigned, but with no good Support, for this Infurrection, viz. That it was occafioned by a frefh Demand of 300,000 Genouins. It is generally ayreed, however, that neither the Doge, aor the Senators, had any Part openly in the Affair, nor are they fofpected to have blown the Flame, having retired for Security, as foon as it broke out. The whole Management of it, is attributed to the French Officers, who were there Prifoners. The Mar* quis de Botta was obliged to retire, with what Troops he could carry off, to the Camp before Savona ; and fame Letters fay, that the Infurgents have even got Poffeffion of the important Pafs of the Bocbetta, which covers the State of Genoa towards Lombardy, in order to prevent both the Retreat of the Auftrians who are now in that State, and the Entrance of t a or 14,000 Troops of the fare NatMn^ who are marching from the Milanefe, the Mou *nefe, the Mantuan, and the Parmefan, upon the News or this Infurrection, to fupport their Countrymen. The French Officers, and feveral themfands of recovered Soldiers, who re Prifoners of War, did all in their Power to aflift the 1 ineers. Ftiretiee, Dec. to. We are informed, that four Neapolitan Gallies have taken i6Genoefe Tranfports, who had Pafsports from the Marquifs de Botta, and were laden with Provifions for the Imperial Army in Provence. This is faid to be done by Way of Reprifal for the Neapolitan Tranfports taken by the Englifh. Neufcbatef, Dec. 19. Since General Brown has enterad Provence, he gets Ground every Day, and perhaps we may by the next Poft receive News of the Surrender of'An*-tibes, which is befieged both by Sea and Land. At the Approach of the Auftrians, who are much fuperior to the French, the latter retired by the Way of Draguignan to Toulon, before which Port the Englifh continue to {hew themfelves. Marfhal Belleifle is got into the City, and the Spaniards were f begin to join him on the 9th. His other Reinforcements arrive fucceffively, and it is faid, that when they are all joined, this Army will amount to 60,069 Men. It is thought, however, that Gemeral Brown will prevent this Junction, unlefs what has happened in the State of Genoa, mould oblige him to change his Meafares. Litge> D*c. *3� YeRerday the Allies began to be ia Motion dn all Sides, and continue to be Co, but with what View we cannot divine. A few Days paft the Auftrian Huffati got Poffeffion of a Bark near Huy, whieh had on Bdard 10,000 Livres in Specie, belonging to the French Commiffaries. BruJJels, Det. 26. The Preparations continue at�Givet and the neighbouring Places, as well as in all Flanders, and Orders are given to fend immediately the neceffary /Ttillery to Louvain, to fecure that Place againft all Accidents. It is certain, that we are not without Appre-henfion both for Louvaio and Antwerp, Advice being come, that the Allied Troops have made feveral Motions for feme Days paft ; which Motions, however, are as yet quite unintelligible, tho' the general Opinion is, that Antwerp is the Place pitch'd upon, and that the French will oppofe fuch an Enterprife with all their Forces. LONDON. As there will be many different Accounts puWiihed of the Insurrection at Genoa, we believe our Readers may depend on the following Letter, as a true Relation of the Affair. better frtm Leghorn^ dated D+c. I2j M.S. * /~^\N the 10th Inft. our Governor received at Exprfef* ' � from Genoa, advifing of an Infurrection in that * City ; this melancholly News was confirmed in the * Evening, by the Arrival of a Dutch Ship, who came ' frem thence on Wednefday cNight, and brought here ' feveral Merchants, who fay the City is in an Uproar. ' Several Families alfo arrived here this Morning, who fay ' all the Foreigners had taken Refuge on boar d-the Ships � * in tbe Port.-The Mob had not committed any Outrage * againft the Magiftrates, Nobility, Citizens, or Strangers* ' but were greatly exaiperated againft the Germans, for ' the continual Demands made by them j accompanied ' with Threats of Military Execution."Whatgave rife to * this is varioufly talk'd of; but the general Account is, * that it was the Menaces of the Auitrians to take up ' Quarters in the City, and alfo the Tranfporting the * Cannon from the Batteries in the Eaftern Part of the � Town, to their Quarters in St. Pierre d'Arena.-The * Mob that had Arms were* oh Wednefday lafti in N ura- * ber about 6000 t If they are hot joined by tbe Nobility, � Citizens, or the Country People from the two Villages^ * they may be qwell'd $ but if they fhould be join'd by * them, they may be in a Capacity to drive the Germans * from the Gates of the City ; wtiich will perhaps deter-< mine General Botta to play upon it from a Bomb Bat-' tery-He is in poffeffion of eight, Mortars arid 0, Pieces * of Cannon, and can feon reduce the City to a heap of ' Rubbifh. We are impatient to know the End of this ' Tragedy : God grant they may find means to pacify both * Parties, otherwiie it will be the Total Dcuruction of � the City and State.  P.S. This Evening an Officer is1 arrived, who Came � from Genoa the 9th. Inftant at Noon : He fays the MobV ' was ftiir affemblcd, and had pla&ed fome Cannon, and * thrown up Intrenchments, facing the Gate where the � Germans were, but had not been able to diflodge them, * from it, nor the Batteries to the Weflein Part. That the Day berois, they font fix of their Mob to General Botta, to treat with him about an Accommodation.' _ "fHBWfflRflfHeej' * would return to their Companions, and all depofit theit  Arms in the Armory, he would treat with them J buc ' not until they had complied.--What has happen'di � fince we cannot tell j feveral Vefle'iB are now in fight,  and as focn as we have any News of Confequence you � Ihall hear farther.-The Officer fays there were feveh ' Sail of Men of War in fight of Genoa, when he came < away j therefore we are in hopes, that the Rabbhrraaj? � be difpers'd, as they had not been join'd by any Perfoii ' of Figure or Fafhion.* We hear, there are fome Letters in Town, which fay, that the InfurreAtion was over, and fome of the Ringleaders had been punifhed. the-OanHwbe
