A new Camp for the Auftrian Army was mark'd Yefterday upon the Trebia, and this Evening we are to march to take Poffeffion of it. General Nadafti remains at Mon-talto, upon the high Road to Rome, with all the Huffars, Warafdins, Sclavonians, the Regiments of Traun and Forgatfch, and a Detachment of German Cavalry. As far as we can judge, the'Object of this Motion is only to effectuate a Junction with the King of Sardinia's Army, in erder to continue the Operations with frefh Vigour. We fhall foon fee what MeaCures the Enemy will take in confe-quence of this. The King of Sardinia is forming two great Magazines, one at Carpeneto, and the other at St. Paulo. Vienna, July r 5. By Letters from Lombard y we hear, that the Spaniards have begun to fire from their Batteries before Gherra d'Adda, which is a Part of the Fortifications of Pizzighicone : But the Auftrian Generals are in no Pain for that Place, as the whole Imperial Army is at Hand to relieve it. This Enterprize of Count Gagas, after fuch an Action as that of the 16th paft, gives fome Surprize: But the moft judicious think, that able General only defigns to draw the Imperialifts out of their advantageous Camp at Placentia, and bring their Forces together on the Left of the Po, where General Roth continues to be reinforced. Milan, July 12. It is obferved, that the Enemy have but a very fmall Garrifon in Placentia in the Day Time, but that they fend thither one half of their Army every Evening. 1 Augjburgb, July zo. The double Marriage between the Haufes of Saxony and Bavaria is concluded, and will be declared at Munich and Drefden on the 26th Inftant. The Treaty of Subfidy is alfo figned at Munich, in Spite of all the Oppofition of the French Minifter, and his E-ledtoral Highnefs is to hire a Body of 5000 Infantry to the Maritime Powers for 4 Years, at the Price of 150,000 Crowns per Annum. The Prince of Hildburghaufen, who had juit before demanded his Demiflion, is to command this Corps. Count Woronzow is at Berlin, and propofes to (lay there fome Days before he proceeds for Peterf-burgh. Vienna, July i,6^The Emprefs Queen has concluded a particular Treaty with the Maritime Powers, which confirms all the Engagements between the three Courts, and the Obligation not to take any Meafures, relative to the general State of Affairs, but with the common and unanimous Confent of all Parties. The Courier that arrived lately from the King of Sardinia's Camp has been fent back thither, with Letters by which th* Emprefs requires that ^ Prince to put his Army in a Pofition more proper for a V Conjunction with the Imperialists in order to ftreighten the Enemy, and prevent their extending themfelves in the Aliianefe. As the Venetian Ambaffador has been more frequently at Court than ordinary, a Report was fpread as if" his Mafters were going to follow the Example of the Genoeie, by declaring in favour of the three Crowns. But as nothing like this happened, either in their Declarations or Conduct, little or no Credit is given to it. However, an Infinuation has been made to the Ambaffador, that the Emprefs hoped the Republic would exactly obferve the Laws of Neutrality. Amflerdam, July 27. As there is no Mention made in of the Advices from Paris of the Duke d'Anville's Squadron, nor can any Ships from France tell any Thing about it, we are perfuaded that it is fail'd for America, and probably for Cape Breton. ExtraS of a Letter from the Camp of the Allies at Haf-fflt, July zb. 1 The Army departing on. the 23d frota Valkenfwaard, arrived the fame Day at Peer and Brey, where it en- * camped in two Lines, Prince Charles of Lorrainjaking ' his Head Quarters at Peei-j and the Prince of Waldeck ' his two Leagues beyond it. They continued there till ' the 25th, and then proceeded to come hither. As "the ' March has been always bearing to the Left fince we re-1 moved from the Camp at Ter Heyden, the Dutch Troops have been ftill the furft to decamp. We know not whe-? ther the Army will continue here To day, or make another march to proceed farther. * To make a Judgment from, the Ardour of the Troops, ' who are the fineft and belt clothed that can be feen, we fhall sot delay coming to Action with the French* who ' are only 8 Leagues diftant, M. Saxe being arrived near ' Tirlemont, and having fent off all his heavy'Baggage. ' We recken our Army at 80,00a effective Men. -The ' Huffars had a Skirmifh near Peer with a Detachment of * the Enemy, who advanced within three Leagues of their ' Camp, but was obliged to retire with Lofi. Haguei July 28. This Morning an Exprefs arrived from the Miniitersof the Repeblicat the Court of France, by which we learn, that the Dauphinefs* Maria-Therefa, Infanta of Spain, born July 11, ijz6, died at Verfailles the 2zd of this Month, in Childbed j but the Princefs fhe was delivered of, who was faid to be dead Iikewife^'is in good Health. This Event is not lefs afflicting to the Court than the Death of the King her Father, and his Moft Chriftian Majefty fet out immediately after for his Palace at Ivry, in order to fpend fome Days there. We are allured, that the Court was to go into Mourning within three Days, and that Orders have been iffued to have every Thing ready within that Time. M. Trevor, Envoy-Extraordinary and Plenipotentiary from the King of Great-Britain, received this Morning a Courier from Munich, with Difpatches from M. Onflow Burrifh, the Britifli Minifter there, and others for their High Mightineffes fromM D'Aylva, their Minifter at the fame Court; and, we are fince affured, that the Subfidy Treaty has been figned between the Maritime Powers and his Electoral Highnefs of Bavaria, in Virtue of which that Prince is to fend a Body of his Troops into the Pay of thofe Powers. Thefaid Courier is to continue his Route for London this Evening. By the laft Letters from the Allied Army, dated at Haf-felt, it appears that the Generals intend to occupy the Old Lines in tbat Neighbourhood, which were made fo famous by the Defeat of tfce French in the laft War in Brabant. As M. Saxe is fappofed to have the fame Intentions, it is thought, that in a few Days we fhall hear the News of a bloody Battle, and Vows are already put up for happy Succefs to the Allies. Genoa, July 8. A Courier is arrived here from Marfhal Maillebois, charged with Difpatches of Importance for M. Guimont, Envoy-Extraordinary from the King of France to this Republic. The Minifter immediately fent him back with an Anfwer to his Letters, and it is remarkable, that this Courier came under the Sanction of a Paffport from the King of Sardinia. According to the Letters from Nice, feveral General and other Officers ate arrived there, who belong to a Corps of 20 Battalions and 30 Squadrons of French which are expected there every Hour, the Quarters being already taken up for them. From the London Gazette. Liege, July 26, N.S. The Imperial Troops which are in March from Bohemia, are very fpeedily expected near Heilbron, from whence the Pontoons, &c. had already taken the Van for Sintzneim in the Lower Palatinate. On the 24th Inftant, the Allied Army marched to encamp between Bilfen and Haffelt, and will go from thence Tomorrow the 27th to incamp near Tongres. The Prince of Conti has encamped a Body of 6000 Men, which he received from Alface, at St. Barbe, upon the Right of the Meufe. Gabions are preparing for the Siege of Charleroy in the Woods near that Place.and on theTerritories of Liege. Hague July, 26. We hear that there are five Men of War fitting out at Breft, and that M. de Maurepas has fent Commiffaries into the French Ports to examine the Magazines, and put all the Men of War in a Condition of Service. It is reported that the French King was to fet out for the Netherlands the 25 th Inftant, and that the Dauphin would accompany him thither. Hague, July 29. The French King's Return to his Army is again poitponed for fome Days, by his Affliction for the Lofs.of the Dauphinefs, who died laft Friday Morning. There is credible Advice of the Junction of the Auftrians and Piedmontefe upon (the Trebia the 16th In"* ftant; and that the Prince of Lichtenftein, who has never removed farther than Fiorenzula, might poifibly foon refume the Command of the Auftrians, under his Sardinian Majefty. Vienna, July 20. A Courier arrived here Yefterday Morning from the Marquifs de Botta, with Letters of the 13th Inftant, with Advice* that the Auftrian and Sardi- r^"* nian Annies had agreed to p^fs the Po, the one above, and the other below tne Bridge at,Placentia, in order to join ^ and clear that Part of the Milanese, which lies between ^ the Teflin and the Adda; and chat every Thing was pre- ^ paring for the faid double Paffage ON. - * L O N D Notwithftanding what we are told from Paris of the De- q"1 clarations of the Nejv King of^ain, concerning his Re- *~t folution to ftand bi his Fathers Engagements with the �jj Court of France, the Judicious look upon this to be only a be reeom- 't^Cj mended to his Majefty's Mercy. S By fome Letters from the North we hear* that there are fome Parties of the Rebels together in the Mountains, �| which has occafioa'd the Duke's continuing there longer . than was expected. O One of the Parties abovementioned are of thef Mac Pherfons, who were coming to join the Rebel Army juit ^-J before their Defeat at Culloden* and were within five their Efcape withexut any Lofs.  J We have atfo Accounts from the Army in Scotland, that they have had fuch heavy Rains, that they have been obliged to Thatch their Tents, and which have made the Ways'very bad. His Majefty has been pleafed to appoint Jonathan Belcher, Efq) to be Governor of Nova Caefarea, or New Jerfey, in America, in the room of Lewis Morris, Efq; deceafed. Yefterday was held a Conrt of Coram on-Council at Guildhall, where it was ordered that the Price given for lighting this City from Chriftmafs 1746, to Chriftmafs 1747, fhould not exceed 1 ]' 1 5 s> Per L,amp ; and that thePropofer at that Price having thereby faved the Citizens of London 3 s. per Lamp, be recommended as the Perfon deferving a Preference from the feveral Wards, in their next Contract.
