Wind S.W. Extra3 of a Litter from the Hague, July 20. * The Death of the King of Spam is one of thofe 1 Events, which fometimes happen- to frtiflrate all the 1 Defigns of Human Wifdom. Tho' in himfelf of not ' much Confequence in the general Syftem of Affairs, his ' Confort a#ing by his Authority, has contributed more to ' embarrafs the Affairs of Europe ioi twenty Years paft, ' than any one of the reigning Sovereigns. An End to ' this Authority of hers, by what Means foever brought 1 about, has been ardently defired therefore by all who are ' anxious for the Public Tranquillity. That this End is ' now come Nobody doubts, the'what will be the Confe- * qaence of it may yet be the Subjects of various Conjec-ture. 4 The new King Ferdinand is not a Youth. Whatever * may be his Abilities he cannot be void of Refentment for * Injuries received. This is enough to make all Europe � conclude, that whatever Syftem he may follow of his ' own Choice, or by the Advice of his Council, the Plan * of his Step-mother, as hers, will be no farther confi-' der'd than juft to be avoided. Tho' he may want no 1 Affection to his Half Brothers, and would be glad to fee * the fecood of them in fome Eftablifliment, it is improba-� ble to think, that he fhould by Force of Arms purfue an * expenfive, precarious, and hitherto unpromifmg War, * for the Sake of procuring him a Kingdom in Lom-l bardy. * By a Peace, a feparate Peace wirh the Courts of Lon-' don and Vienna, more may be poffibly be obtained than ' by a Continuance of Hoftillities; tho* not fo much, perhaps, as the mortified Queen Dowager might think of ' obtaining. ' In what this Acquisition is to confift muft be * left to thofe who barter for Nations; I only fay, that as * the Market for Savereigns has for feveral Years paft been * carried on, there is no Fear but fomething may be found * to fering to it. * The Counfellors of the new King, I take it from the ' natural Gratitude of Mankind, will be the very Men that ' have been the Followers of his Difgrace ; Enemies to the ' Italian Fadlion, Friends to their own Country, and ' feilful in its true Intereft. Nothing but iuch Men are ' wanting to make the Spanilh Nation return to its an-' ctent Maxims, which are, To liveJn perpetual Jesloufy ' of France, and cultivate the Friendfhip of thofe People * who trade with them to mutual Advantage. No Matter * for any Diftinclion of the Houfes of Bourbon and Aerf-' tria, the Bufioefs of the People is to be true Spaniards. ' It will not, we know, be for our Advantage here to ' an Union between you hnd the Spaniflr Nation. But ' what of that ? We cannot help feeing that fich an Union ' will take Place, whenever you both confider cooly your ' own lnurefts. The Goods yoaferve the Spaniards with ' are chiefly your own Manufactures, and wbot they abfo-' lutely want : The Goods you take from them, tho' not ' of fo abfjlute Neccflity in Life, are motf for your own ' Consumption, what no other People will take in fuch ' Quantities, bat Which turn to your Account by that Cocr-' lumptiun, and tlie valV Returns it occafions. ' We are now pretty much the Carriers in common be-^ ' t*een you, but not fo much as we might be if we cau-ld 4 farther promote the Ben-fit on bath Sides. All the Profk �* wc make to ourftlves, more than jflnVrhe Freightage, is ' loll either to the Englifti or the Spaniard;. We buy ' their Commod.ties tor you, and yours for them; jud^e ' then what muft be the Difference between thi. anJ a di- * reft Trade. ' But th� French fj^d their Account in this Difference ' even more than we, becaufe what they nil to S,�ain is ' cbi fly theix o*n Produce or Manufacture, and what they ' take from it little befides ready Specie. Suppoiing then * that France could make as good and a3 great Quantities &I 'Woollen, for Inftance, as England, it would not bt ' equally for the Intereft of Spain to take from her, uniefs * fhe made her Returns in the fame Mariner as England ' ufed to do : And for this fhe has no Occafion, her own ' Climate fupplyingher Wants of that Sort. ' Thele are only a few loofe Thoughts of my own, which ' if you fhould treat as purely chimerical, it mall not bin-' der my wripng to you hereafter upon Subjects of greater ' Certainty. Genoa, July 9. The Ceremony of the Coronation of our New Doge John-Francis Brignoles, was performed in the ufual Manner on the 2d Inftant. On the 5 th fome Mules, laden with Chefts full of Specie, arrived herci and on the 6th arrived two Couriers from Nice, who were polling for the Infant Don Phittp's Army, which is going to befiege Pizzighitone. Two Days ago a Dutch Ship arrived in 8 Day* from Tunis, the Mailer of which reports, that the Algerine Army was then within Sight of that of Tunis. Heidelberg, July 22. The Prince of Salm, General of Artillery, who commands the Imperial Troops in the Camp of Senthiem, in the Abfence of Prince Lobkowitz, has lixed his Quarters in the Cstftle ; and General de Hol-zel, who commands the Troops of the Circle of Franco-nia, encamped at Neckar's Ulm, lodges in the Town of that Name. Thofe who have feen this laft Camp, fay, they cannot fufficiently praife the Beauty of the Troops' which form a Line under Rows of Trees. On the 17th two Imperial Regiments with a Train of heavy Artillery, arrived in the Camp of Sontheim. The Troops have taken their Route by Schondorff and Steinheim. The Regiments coming from Bohemia are not expected here thefe three or four Days yet. The French CommhTaries are buying up all the Provifions they can, in order to fill their Magazines in Alface. LONDON. From the London Gazette. Naples, July 5. The King has confented to the Repre-fentations of the Deputation of Health, for difmiiung the Troops which formed the Lines in Calabria, fmce, for thefe fixteen Months paft, no Signs of epidemic Sickaefs has been difcover'd in thefe Parts. Florence, July 12. We hear from Lombardy, that a Body of 5000 Men, commanded by M. Mirepoix, who were to attempt to furprize Pavia, had been repulied three Times by the Sardinian Troops, with the Lois of about 2500 Men, and were obliged to leave moll of their Ladders, and many Boats for theUfe of a Bridge, which they had brought in Waggons. The French and Spanilh Armies have fmce ported themfelves at Codogno, extending with a large Detachment to Lodi, in order to receive from that Part of the Country, fuch Supply of Ncceffaries as they are able to get. Thay have fortified themfelves both. at Codogno and Lodi, and keep their Bridge of Communication over the Po, to fuccour the Garrifon of Placentia. The Infant and the Duke of Modena are at Lodi. Their Army fuffers extremely, for Want of Neceffaries, and the Delertion amongft their Troops is conliderable. The Auf-trians by their Batteries have greatly damaged the Buildings in Placentia, and killed many of the Inhabitants, who are put to theutmofl Diltrefs for Want of Provifions; and, it is reported, that there are in that City upwards of Sick.
