Extra ft of a Letter from Milan, fitly 13, N.S. ' The Army under Count Gage, which confills of ' 20,000 Spaniards and Neapolitan-, end 10,000 Genoefe, � ii arrived before Seravalle. and is actually battering the * Place. We are a flared, that the Infant Don Philip's ' Army, which is laid to be do or 45,000 Itrong, is in * /ull March thvo' the Valley of BormiJa, coming to join * Count Gage. Count Schulcmbourg Ibll encamps between ' Tortona and Alexandria, his Head-Quai ters being at * Tortona : His Troop have made a Motion, in order to ' form a Line as far as Vogheia, and thereby prevent the ' Enemy's touching the Sublicences in the County, as well ' as make fure of a Retreat towards the Po. We guefs * that the Infant's Defign is to Jay Siege to Alexandria, ' while Count Gage undertakes the Siege of Tortona ; ' but it is generally thought that it will Be fome time * yet before they receive heavy Aniilery enough to take ' in Hand tho'e two Sieges. It is certain, however, that * in Spight of the Engiifh Men of War cruizing on the 4 toaft, upwards of 4c Pieces of Cannon and 10 Mortars, " arrived at Genoa from Naples and V illa-franca, to which * the Republick adds 46 Pieces of battering Cannon and ' ro Mortars, to make up the Train of heavy Artillery for � the Enemy's two Armies. The King of Sardinia's Army, * which lay at Gareflio, has retreated to Bognafcoand No- * ce:a, in the Neighbourhood of Cefena. There has been 4 lome Skirmifhes on the Confines of Genoa, between the 4 Peafants on both Sides. We hear that the Infant Don * Philip, is publifhing at Acqui the Manifefto wherein he * flyles himfelf lawful and univerfal Heir to the Domi- * nions which formerly belonged to the Houfe of Aultria ' in Italy, has promifed to free from all Taxes, for ten * Year?, thole who fhall acknowledge him in that Quality, ' and fubmit to him, difchargirg tnem at the lame Time, * from the Oath of Fidelity they have taken either to the 4 King of Sardinia, or the Qoeen of Hungary. They write from Tortona, that the King of Sardinia went the 5th Inftant, N.S. to the Auftrian Camp, and de-fired fome Troops to reinforce the Garrifons of Tortona and Alexandria ; which Count Schulembourg refufed, aliedging that he had not Troops enough to cover the Queen of Hungary's Territories, They add, that all the ufelefs Mouths have been turned out of Tortona, as they expeft it will be forthwith beiieged. Lette-s from Genoa mention the taking the Poll of Al-tare, belonging to the King of Sardinia, and the Defeat of two Detachments of Piedmonteze Troops that had pufhed on as far as Vintimilleand Albenga. From Florence we hear, that 6000 Spaniards and Neapolitans, are actually marching through Tufcany, in order to reinforce Count Gage's Army. Letters from Leghorn of the 9th Inftant, N.S. advife, that Mr. Villette, the Bntifh Miniller at Turin, and Baron Blonay, one of the Piedmonteze Minifters, have actually embarked there, on board an Englifli Man of War, in order to carry to Admiral Rowley, the Refult of the Conferences held at Turin, on the Operations both by Sea and Land. We hear from Vienna, that great Preparations are making there for the Queen's Journey into the Empire, her Majelly having refolved to follow the Grand Duke, and be crowned along with him at Francfort. They add, that the King of Pruffia has detached another Body of Troops to Silefia, to put a Stop to the Incurfions of the Hungarian Infurgents ; and that, a Body of 700 Pruffians, whe inarched out of Neifs the 6th Inllant, N.S. in order to go to Neuftadt, were defeated by Baron Trenck, who drove them back to Neifs, after taking from them three Piece* of Cannon, and fome other Booty. of a Letter from Berlin, July 24., N.S. ' Some Overtures having been made to the King for a ' Peace with the Queen of Hungary, his Majefty has de-' elared, 41 That as every juft and equitable Prince ought to have Peace in View in all the Steps he takes, he was " very ready to liften to one upon thefe Conditions. " 1. That the Treaty of Breflau be confirmed, with the " Guarantees granted in Confequence ojt, and made the *' Bafis of the Accommodation. " 2. That Satisfaction and Reparation be made for the * Damages and the Exce/Tes committed in Silefia by the " Hungarian Troops. And, t( 3.' That, in Comequence of this Satisfaction expected " by his Majefty, the Queen of Hungary fliall cede to '� him that Part of Silefia, which was referved to her by " the Treaty of Breflau." ' If thefe Terms be complied with, the King has given ' to underftand, that he is ready to Concur in fuch Mea-* Aires that may be judged beneficial to the Empire. * The Court has publiflied two Half Sheets of the Ope-' rations of the King's Army in Bohemia and Silefia: In ' the firft it is faid, that on the 12th Inftant General Naf-' fau attacked at Neuftadt a Body of Hungarian Troops, ' who having immediately fled towards Jagerndorff, were ' purfued by the King's Troops, who killed feme of them, ' and picked up feventy Prifoners, &c. after which Rout ' the reft of the Hungarian Troops retreated as far as Ra-' tibor. By the other Half Sheet, which is dated the 17th ' Inftant, v/e learn, that the King's Army was certainly going upon a March ; that the World would perhaps be lurprized at its Motions; and fome People give out, that it was retiring into Silefia; but that the Sequel would ' fcew his Majefty was far from having any fuch Defign.' According to Advices from Hanau and Francfort the French fet Fire to the Magazines they had. at Lorfch, before they repaffed the Rhine. The Prince of Conti, it's faid, is retreating towards Landau. The Grand Duke of Tufcany has fixed his Head Quarters at Lorfch, and General Brown, with feven thoufand irregular Troops, has already paffed the Neckar, and taken up his Quarters at Ladenbourg Count Colloredo, an Auftrian Miniiter, who was at Francfort, is gone back to Prince Charles of Lorrain's Army, after having made divers PropTitions to the States of the Empire, on which the ulterior Operations of the Grand Duke's Army depend, and which the States have taken ail Rferertum. Baron Erthal, the Elector of Mentz's lecond Embaflador to the Dyet of Election, is fet out for Hanover, in order to execute an important Commiffion there, and tney expected him back at Francfort in about a Week. The Deputies in the College of Prince continue to meet about fettling the Capitulation with the new Emperor. It is laid the Circle of the Upper Rhine will furnifh four thoufand Men for the Security of Francfort during the Election and Coronation of the future Emperor. Count Kevenhuller, the lecond F'm-baffadcr of Bohemia, is to have the fame Houfe that Mar-flial Bellifle formerly lived in at Francfort; which Hc-uie, and that adjoining to it, are deftined for the new Emperor and his Attendants, as foon as he is elected. Extrad of a Lettir from BiuJJels, July 26, N. S. ' The Duke of Cumberland has received a Courier from ' Hanover with fome extraordinary Difpatches, importing, ' among other Things, that a Negociation is on the Tapis * for an Accommodation between the Queen of Hungary ' and the King of Pruffia, whereby the Treaty of Breflau  fliould be renewed, and his Pruffian Majefty, in Confide-' ration thereof, give his Vote to the Grand Duke of Tuf-  cany at the Imperial Election. We are vaftly impatient * to know more of this Affair. ' Things are pretty quiet in thefe Parts fince the Sur-' render of Oudenard, the Garrifon of which, confiding of ' Engiifh aid Auftrians, are made Prifoners sf War. We ' have yet had no farther Account of the four Auftrian Re-' giments that are to come from Namure to reinforce the ' Allied Army, nor do we hear any more Talk cf detach-1 ing twenty-eight thoufand Men from the French Army to ' reinforce the Prince of Conti. Jt {hould feem that Aeth ' is the next Town the Enemy will let down before, fince ' four Regiments of Foot, five of Horfe, two of Dragoons, � and one of HufTars, that encamp at Chievres, are actually ' making Fafcines and Gabions.' They write from Amfterdam of the 30th Inftant N.S. that the Letters which arrived that Morning from Ham-bourgh, mention fomething like a new Rupture being at Hand between Ruflia and Denmark. Letters from Antigua by the Way of Dublin, dated the 28th of May bring '.dvice of the Arrival there of Commodore Leigh in the Suffolk, and the Dreadnought Men of War, with a Fleet of Merchant Ships under their Convoy from England. The Neptune and Jdfon, two Ships from San Domingo, for France, richly laden, are carried into Carolina by two Privateers belonging to that Place. The Happy Return, Davis, from Lonc'on, to Campveer, is taken by a French Privateer, and carried into Dunkirk. The Nou. Dufwa, John Teriberg, from Stockholm to London, is loft in the Baltick.
