On the 2d failed the Captain, Commodore Legg, with the Sunderland and Dragon Men of War, and all the Ships for the Leeward 'Hands, Jamaica, &c. Yefterday came into the Harbour the Charter Man of War, Cap:. Fry. LONDON. The Advices from A'larfeilles runs very pofitive, that fix P.nglifh Men of War had been ken cruizing before that Port, which gives them great Apprehenfions for their Trade returning from the Levant, it being expected there in a fevv Days, and having no vifible Means of efcaping anlefs by a Miracle, with which the Merchants do not flatter themfelves. Don Philip, M. BcL'eifle, the Marquis de las Minus, Count de Maillebois, and many others of the French and Spanifh Generals, having held a grand Council of War at Aix, the Refult of it was fent directly to Court by a Courier : But as nothing of the Refolutions taken have been publiQied, it is generally thought, they only contain Re-prefentations of the bad State of Affairs. As the French Army, in their Retfeat before Count Brown, having all the Way burnt and. deftroy'd what Provisions they met with, and could nor carry off; the Inhabitants are under no Apprehenfions, more from the Invaders, but hope, from the Lenity hitherto fhewn byGonnt Brown, that their Condition wilUx; altered for the better ander his Protection. The Reinforcements rnat arrive in the Neighbourhood of Lyons, find thera fuch a Scarcity ef Provitions of all Sorts, that they are obliged to halt till Wfpofitions can. be made to fupply them. And as thefe are a: lait but very flow, itmuft bp fome Time before M. Belleiflecan have it in his Power, to make any Stand. Letters from Paris fay, that tho' the Court was very much ftrrprifed, it was not overjoy'd at the News of the Revolt of the Genoefe, becaufe it having happened a"t a Time when the Houfe of Bourbon is in no Condition to fupport them, this-Step feemg rather to threaten an entire Dinolution of the Republick, than any material Service to theCaufe of tbe Three Crowns, or of the Infant Don PBflip.  It has been, found, that fome of the Genoefe Troops, which had been difarmed at the Capitulation, and, at firft, took no- Part in the. Commotion of their Coantrymen, ventured, apofl the little Appearance of Succefs among the Populace, to join them, which occafioned their better Behaviour in the latter ; but as this is an abfo-late Infraction of the Laws of War,, it is not doubted but a very fevere Accounrjwill be demanded of thefe Regular Soldiers, who fhould have known better. The following fliort Account of the RepuWlick pf GENOA, extracted- from a Book of Geography lately published, entitled The fhort Way to knovj the World, or Rudiments of Geography, in umo, will we hope be acceptable to our Readers. GENOA is a very confiderable and remarkable City, for being fituated on the Side of a Hill, on the Coaft of the Mediterranean, it makes a very fine Appearance to the Sea,, and affords a very pleafant Profpect both Ways; being alfo the Capital of a large Territory, the Seat of the Senate and the Doge, and an Archiepifcopal Sea ; it-makes a confiderable Figure amongft the Cities pf Italy, and is ufually (tiled Genoa the Stately. It is alfo of Note for the Emperor Charles the 6th Landing in its Suburbs at St. Pietro d'Arena, on October 8, N.S. 1711,, in his Return from Barcelona, whe� he had been fmce 1705. But as it is pleafantly fituated, fo it is much expofed to the Attacks of any Enemy, and remarkable for having fuffered much from them, viz. 1. From the Carthaginians under Mago, who fack'd it. 2. From the Arabs in 93^, who burnt it, and kill'd or carried away all the Inhabitants. And Laftly by the French in 1684, who bombarded it, and forced the Doge to afk Pardon on his Kn�es at Ver-failles for the Affront which was given. There is alfo a very bard Saying of it, viz. That here are Mountains v;;thout Grafs, Seas ^without Fifh, Women iuitl.-cut Sba/ne, and Men ixitbwt Faith. We are informed, our Court has received Advice, that Crnnt Brown makes his Progrefs in Provence with great Succefs and Judgment; that except at firft, he has not exacted any Contributions of Money ; but contented him-felf with their bringing in Provifions to the Army; that the French having in Confequence of the Order publifh'd, brought in Plenty of every Thing neceffary, and with the utmoft Readinefs, he had caused it to be made known throughout the whole Army, that the Soldier* fhould not, on the mod fevere Penalties, do the leaft. Injury to the Olive Trees, Vines, or any Property of the inhabitants,- which, no doubt, will further the Conqueft of that Province. The fame Advices mention, that there bad been a Skir-mifh near the Durance, between the Marquis de Onnea, with-a Detachment of Piedmontefe, and a large Bpdy of French, in which the former had 40 Men kill'd, and hading rt impracticable to carry his Point in his prefent Cir-cumftances, defifted from his Enterprise. We can with great Pleafure and Truth inform our Readers, that his Royal Highnefs the Duke of Cumberland has carried every Point he wifh'd from his going to Holland : And that he will be early in the Field, at the Head of an Army confifiing of One Hundred Seventy five Battalions, And Two Hundred Seven'Squadrons, Which muft give the greatdt Pleafure to all True Englishmen, andLovers of Liberty :-And muft Damp the Spirits of Thofe who are continual!^ endeavouring" to terrify us with the Power of France : And what that Court will do for the Cau/e. both in Scotland and IrelahJ.-But we flill fay-A3 Popery-No Slavery*-NoWooden Shoes; Sec. A Grant has pafs'd the Great Seal unto John Selwyn, the Younger, Efq; of the Office of Paymafter of his Ma-jelly's Marine Regiments, in the rbom of Sir Charles Hanbury Williams* who has reffgn'd.
