They write from Cafl*eJ, that Prince William of Heffc inteads to fct out the Beginning of next Month for Scania, in order to have an fnterview with his Brother the King of Sweden, whofe Voyage to Germany will net take Place this Year.

Ex trad of a Letter from the Hague, Augujl 3, N.S. . 4 Mr. Trevor, the Britifh Envoy Extraordinary, recei- * ved a Courier the 30th of laft Month from Hanover, and ' difpatched him directly to London. On this Occafion * we have learned that there is a Convention made between * the King of Great-Britain and the Landgrave of Hefle ' Cartel, which was figned the 16th of June, and ratified * the 22d of July : By this Convention the Landgrave en-' gages to furnifh Great-Britain with a Body of 6000 Men, * who fhall begin their March without Delay to the Grand ' Duke of Tufcany's Army. It is not yet known whether ' thefe 6000 Men will remain in that Army, or whether ' they will be fent from thence to the Netherlands. ' We hear from Drefden, that Count Kevenhuller has * left that Court highly pleafed with the Succefs of his ' Commiffion, his Polifh Majefty having aflured him with ' nis own Mouth, that he will not only concur in the re-' iloring the Activity of the Vote of Bohemia, andraifing " the Grand Duke to the Imperial Throne, but will do all ' that lies in his own Power to gain thefe two important * Points. �It is ftill faid that 6000 Bavarian Troops are to be ta-' ken into the Service of the Court of Drefden, in order to ' replace the like Number of Saxons, who are to be em-4 ployed on the Rhine or in the Netherlands� but we * cannot yet be pofitive on this Head. * We bear that fome Men of War will be fpeedily ftatio- < ned on the Coalt of Zealand. Eatra3 of the Journal of the Saxon Auxiliary Army in Bohemia, near Konigingratx, On the 19th Inft. Word was brought from our Left, that the Pruflians were throwing new Bridges over the Elbe, in the Neighbourhood of Schmirfchitz, and the Deferters which joined us chris Day, declared, that there was a great Motion in their Camp, and that the Army was preparing to change its Situation. As foon as Night came on, we obferved, that they affected to double the Fires in their Camp ; and feveral Signals, which they made by firing of Cannon, made us at tentive to their Proceedings; and accordingly, On the 20th, we faw the Pruffian Army wheel off toward the Right, to gain the oppofite Bank of the Elbe. They paffed the River on Bridges thrown over it near Lochanitz, a fmall Village neaF the Town of Schmirfchitz, the Cavalry and Baggage having taken the Route of Hor-zinowes. It feemed at firft to be only a Part of the Prufllan Army that had paffed the River, and a Trumpet of the King of PrufTia's Regiment of Foot, whom our Houlans took, declared the iame Thing, and feveral Deferters who came to our Head Quarters confirmed it, adding, that they believed that Part of the Army had taken another Route. Thereupon a fmail Party was fent to reconnoitre the new Camp which the Pruflians occupied, and according to their Reports, it is probable that it was the whole Army that had paffed to the Right of the Elbe. Their Camp extends a Mile in Length, the Left Wing ftretching towaids Lochanitz, having the Village of NedielelHe in their Front, that of Chlum in their Rear, and their Right extending towards the Village of Dlauhdwory fronting our Left Wing, and about two Leagues diitant from us. Letter from faviaica, dated May 27. ' Colonel Burk, an Inhabitant of the Ifland of St. Kitts, * having lately made his Efcape from Martinico, where he * had been detained fome time, gave Information on his * Return, to General Matthews, that when he left Marti-' nico there were arrived eight Sail of Men of War of the ' Line; and that they daily expected fome SpaniOi Ships * to join them, with a Number of Tranfports, having on * board 3000 Regular Troops, 1500 Volunteers, and 250 � Free Mulatoes and Negroes. As this Fleet is judged to � be too great for any Attempt on the Leeward Iflands, ' we have ftrong Reafon to conjecture, that thsy intend ' a Defcent on this Place. General Matthews on hearing < the above Account immediately fent an Exprefs to Commodore Knowles, ftation'd at Antigua ; upon which a Veffel wasdifpatch'd here, with two Packets, one to the Governor, and the other to Admiral Davers, who confuting together, it was thought neceffary that a Council of War mould be held, which was dofte accordingly, and they came to the following Refolutions, viz. � That Martial Law fiiould be immediately put in * Execution. � That a General Embargo be laid on all Ships. � And that Expreffes fhould be difpatched to all the Ge-' neral Officers, throughout the Ifland, to raife the Mili- * tia in their feveral Diftricts, both Horfe and Foot, with * Orders to repair with all fpeed to Spanifh Town. ' What confirms our Conjecture, that they intend to � make an Attempt on this Ifland is, that within thefe 10 � Days there arrived three Flags of Truce, who only ' brought with them four Englilh Prifeners, from whence * it was fuppofed they were fent as Spies, (tho* one of ' them faid he had a Packet for the Governor) and there-' fore were detained, and not one of them permitted to ' come afoore. We have only two Men of War at prefent 4 capable to put to Sea, one in the Dock, and three on a * Cruize ; and in fine the Ifland was never in a worfc Situa- * tion fince we have poffefs'd it. ' As we daily expect the Enemy, there are 1000 Men ' put into Port Royal; and all the other Forts about the 4 Ifland are well mann'd.-This has fo alarm'd the whole ' Ifland, that it has put an entire flop to all Commerce j 4 our Provifions are almoft all exhaufted, and unlefs we 4 have very foon a Fleet from England, I fear the Enemy * will be too ftrong for us. ' The Governor is very afliduous on the Occafion, and 4 is refolved to fpare no Painsi for the Prefervation of the 4 Ifland. I am, &c. The Sarah, Almary, was taken in her Paffage, from New-England to Antigua, by a French Privateer, and retaken by the Deal-Caltle Man of War, and carried into Antigua.
