General Advertiser (Newspaper) - June 18, 1846, London, Middlesex Advertifer. mb. W E D.N ESDAY, June 18, 1746. Vealj June 16. HE Galloper Tender remains ftill in the Downs. Wind S.E. Grave/end, June 16. Pafs'd by the Union, Clinckart, from Amfterdam; and the Emanuel, Broade, from Stettin. Ratisfon, June 15. Baron Bnrkenberg, Director of Auftria, read lately a Memorial in the PaJace of Princes, which was prefented by the Marquis of Caftellane, the French Ambaffador in Turkey, to the Ottoman Miniftry on the 10th of February laft ./As this Piece throws great Light upon the true Motives of the prefent War, it has been publifhed with the Remarks of an Imperial Minifter: gut we ihall only give the Memorial itfelf, it being fuffici-ently plain. ' 1 he Count de Caftellane, Ambaffador from France, � is perfuaded, that the Double Peace of the King of � Pruffia with the King of Poland and the Queen of Hun-� gary muft have appeared a very extraordinary Event to �the Sublime Porte, after the Signal Victory which, that � Prince had obtained over the Saxons and Auftrians near 4 Drefden. It cannot be unknown, that what obliged the ' King of Pruffia to take this Step was the March of the * Mufcovites, who were already in Courland, and threat-4 ned to invade his Dominions. The Sublime Porte muft 4 from hence perceive, of what Importance it would have 4 been to her, if lhe had followed the Advice which France � gave her by her Ambaffador, of giving, fome Alarm upon * the Frontiers of Germany. In like Manner as the Mo- * tions of the Mufcovites determined, the King of Pruffia to * give his Suffrage to the Grand Duke of Tufcany, fo the 4 Motions of the Ottoman Troops would have prevented 4 every Elector from giving his Voice for that Prince, and 4 would, at the fame Time, have even obliged him to de-4 fift from his Pretenfion. This regards what is paft, and 4 is not -yet without Remedy, if the Porte will for the fu- . 4 ture fhew that Firmnefs which is agreeable to her trae � Intereft. 4 All the Reafons which France has made nfe of to prove 4 the Grand Duke's Election illegal, do ftill fubfift, and 4 are founded upon the Laws of the Empire of Germany: 4 The Electors can neither change thofe Laws, nor deviate 4 from them ; and the Empeytr of .France, as Guarantee ' of the Treaty of Weftphalia, KasrightJn himfelf toop-4 pofe whatever is. attempted againft tfje Liberty and Laws f of the Germanic Body; The Emperor of France en- * gaged in a War to hinder the Empire of Germany, in ' Contempt of thefe Laws, from becoming a fecondTime * hereditary in the Houfe of Auftria. His. Majefty caufed 4 it to be declared to the Porte, that he would with all his ' Forces oppofe the Election of "the'Grand Duke. He * perfifts conftantly in this Project; he. did not depart from - * it, even after the firft Peace of the King of Pmffia in ' 1742, when the Troops of France weremoft enfeebled j ' and entirely hemm'd round in Bohemia. Should he de- * fift from it at prefent, when the Arms of France and its 4 Allies have had fuch profperous Succefs in Flanders and * Italy, and while the Troubles of Scotland and the Ta- * king Oftend have difconcerted all the Meafures of her * Adverfaries ? ' If France with fo much Conftancy purfues her Syf- * tem, why Jhould the Sublime Porte, falfify. the Plan lhe * has hitherto purfued, with Regardsto the Acknowledged \ ' ment of the Grand Dake ? Is me not principally inte-1 ' retted in preventing the Imperial 'Dignity from being * perpetuated in the Houfe of Auftria ? 'Let her not bede-' ceived : The Court,of Bavaria will be always the natural � Enemy of the Houfeof Auftria, and .the Imperial>Dig- * nicy being in that Family,, (he will employall the Forces ' �' Germany to recover er ancient Power, and make it ^ vahd with-her Allies, who concurr'd'tb help her out of ' the bad Situation fhe was in, with no other View, but to * make ufe of her in the Execution of their Defigns a-.* garnft this Empire. ' The Sublime Porte knows in this Refpect her true In-terefts, fince fhe herfelf in writing ,even exhorted the ' Emperor of France to perfift in his Syftera, and began to ^ concur in it by refufingto acknowledge the Grand Duke. ^ It, is true, that the King of PruffiaJias fince made his | Peace; but this is a. ftronger Reafon why the Bjorte * mould continue united to France, and conform to the 'Plan which the will follow.- This, Peace, perhaps, is ' �nly a Truce upon Force', of as fhort Duration as the i t/eaty of 17+z- ^ut if 'lt ^ true, that the Houfe of Auftria, by her Accommodation with the Houfes of Bavaria and Brandenburgh, fhsnld be delivered from the Enemies fhe had in Germany, it will follow that thofe Powers, who on the Eaft and Weft may bound the unmeafurable Ambition of that Houfe, are more interefted than ever to preferve a good Under-ftanding, and act with Uniformity. * The Peace with Perfia is either concluded, or- upon the Point of being fo. The Time; approaches when efficacious and folid Meafures may be taken to .overthrow the ambitious Projects of the Auftrians. The Sublime Porte will renounce beforehand all the Advantage of thofe Meafures, and deviate from the Rules of found Policy, if fhe ties up her own Hands, and voluntarily, without Neceffity, gives up the Right flie has either to aft or threaten, whenever the Circumftances of Affairs may require it. 4 The Ambaffador of France is perfuaded, that if the Sublime Porte condefcends to pay any Attention to this Memorial, fhe will defer the Acknowledgement of the Grand Duke of Tufcany, at leaft, till tie firft Succefles of the next Campaign, for which France is making im-menfe Preparations, are feen ; and till this Ambaffador can have Time to communicate them, as well as his Reflections upon the Views of his Court, fince the Peace with the King of Prufiia. In the mean Time, the Sublime Porte will rifle nothing in delaying to acknowledge the Grand Duke, if it were only for this Reafon, that the faid Duke is an Adverfary of this Empire, by his Poffeffion of the Dominions of Tufcany. And how can the Court of Vienna take it ill; fhe, who deferr'd the Acknowledgement of the Emperor Charles VII. for three Years, and did not own him till after his Death, tho' his Ele&ion was legal, and concurred in even by thefe whc afterwards oppofed him.' From the London Gazette. Stockholm, May 30. The Eaft-India Company's Octroy at Gottenburg being expired, a new one was granted a few Days ago by the King and Senate to the lame Perfons who had the Direction of it before. Vienna, "June 11, N.S. The Detachment of Spaniards who laft paffed the Po, confifted of 15,000 Men. They pillaged L-odi; and from one fingle Eftate of the Borro-meis carried off 180 Head of Cattle. Vienna, June 15, N.S. There is no other News from Italy but that the King of Sardinia is march'd towards the Boguetto, in order, to render the Communication of the' Spaniards at Placentia with the Genoefe State the more difficult, while the Auftrians have taken by Storm two Polls, the one called Ripalta upon the Trebia, where there was a Garrifon of 700 Men; the other Montechiar in that Neigbourhood, with a Garrifon of 300.

By our lateft Advices, which were of the 17th Inftant, the Enemy had not begun to fire upon the Town of Mons,1 bnt it was fb clofely blocked up by Parties all round, that there was great Difficulty of getting any certain Intelligence. Within thefe few Days, a-bove 200 Deferters from the Army are come.into our Head Quarters, and the'Deferdon to other Quarters, according to bur Accounts, is rather, greater. Marfhal Bathiani, Prince Waldeck, and almoft all the Generals of our Army, went Yefterday to Hoogftraten, and from thence to vifit General Baronay's advanced P ofts, and were well pleafed with his Difpofition.

Marfhal Saxe continues quiet in the Neighbourhood of Antwerp, '"whilft'' the Troops behind him are pufhing on the Sjege of Mons a�d St. Ghilain. Letters from Prince Lichtenfteiri's Army of the 10th Inftant bring no material Advices, unlefs it be of that General's Indif-pofition, and a Report of the King of Sardinia's advancing to diflodge M. Maillebois from Novi. Hague, June 25, N.S. An Exprefs is this Minute arrived from Prince Lichtenftein, wkh the following impor- tant, News, viz.
