LONDON. ExtraS of a Letter from Brujfeh, June 7. � In Spite of all their late Advantages, and what ever � Face they may put on the Matter, it is plain the French ' Miniftry are far from being fatisfied with the prefent * State of Affairs. The King very poflibly, may be kept ' above any Apprehenfions of future Events. A Series of ' triumphant Entries, within lefs than fourteen Months, ' into all the great Cities of Flanders and Brabant, for-' ' merly the melt opulent and flourifhing in Europe, and to ' this Day reaining an Air of Magnificence that can be ' equall'd in few other Countries, muft be very foothing to ' an ambitious Monarch, who is but young in his Puriuit * of Mrlitary Glory. Even M. Saxe, with his greater Age ' and Experience, is not a little fiatter'd by his prodigious � Run of Succefs, and perhaps does not pay the neceflary ' Regard to Confequences. If he had not a.great deal of ' Vanity among his fine Qualities, he would never have � fubmiited to that ftudied and ridiculous Ceremony of ' Adulation that was paid him at the Theatre at Paris, ' when, after the Reduction of Bruffels, one'of the prin-' cipal Performers, in the Character of Fame, prefented * him with a Crown of Laurels before a crowded Audience. ' The King indeed is highly contented with the Ser- * vices of thio Foreign General, who thinks himfelf happy ' and fecure in his Majefty's Favour and Protection : But ' that he will be deprived of thefe, upon the firft difaftrous ' Event that happens in what he undertakes, is not doubted, * if any Frenchman remaining about his Majefty has the ' Addrefs to improve fuch a Dafadv^ntage, and introduce � French Councils again into the Cabinet. For let- the ' French Generals and Secretaries pretend what they pleafe,' ' while they dare not open their Minds, they are certainly ' highly uneafy at Teeing all Military Operations under a * Foreigner, whom they look upon only as a Soldier: of ' Forture. ' Nor is that all which gives Difturbance to thofeMini-' fters who depended upon the Skill of their o^vn Negbcia-4 tions. Cardinal Tencin and M. D'Amelqt had* -great ? Hopes of Bullying the Dutch into a Neutrality, and obi * tainingby that means fome Claim to Merit equal to M; * Saxe: But having failed in this, they nave no Way left ' P^jreferyihg to thejtnfelves any great Figure! or, Wejgli^ ' ^cept they can fome how traverfe tne Sylerh of 'Mi * Saxe. Befides they fee fb far into Futurity as to expect * ftillfome Check upon the late Reports concerning fhe * prefent Inclination of certain Princes, who have been '"formerly too much under French Influence, as unworthy Vof Regard." This Day his Serene Highnefs the Prince of Heffe will dme with his Grace the-�)uke of Dorfet, Lord Prefident of his Majefty's Council, at his Houfe at Whitehall. Yefterdaythe Hon. and Right Rev. Lord James Beau-clerk, Brother to his Grace the Duke of St. Alban's took the Oaths and his Seat in the Houfe of Peers as Bifhop of Hereford, in the room of Dr. Egerton, deceafed. _ A curious fine Monument is fent down into Derby (hire, sn order to be fet up near Caulk in that County, to the Memory of the Lady Harpur, late Wife of Sir Henry Harpur, Bart.

H� likewife brings Advice, that. General Campbell, with the Argyllfhirefhire Militia, and fome Companies of his own Regiment, the Scots Fufiliers, were embarked on Wednefday for Caftle-Menaie, in the Ifle of Mull. Subfequent Accounts confirm the above, and bring the agreeable Intelligence, that the Camerons and Mac Donalds had laid down their Arms, and fubmitted to the King's Mercy ; fo that probably, our unhappy Commotions will foon be quieted. They write from Perth, that Glengyle, with a few Ra-parees, had made Incurfions almoft to Crief; and that Brigadier Mordaunt had detach'd 300 Soldieri in queft of him.
