General Advertiser (Newspaper) - June 20, 1846, London, Middlesex The General Advertifer. FRIDAY, June 20, 1746. Deal* June 18. A ME down the Royal Gaily, Phillips, for Leghorn j and the Peckham43ally, Stewart, for Newfoundland; and remain with the Galloper Tender; and the Dutch Ship for the Baft-Indies. WindS.W. LONDON. ExtraS of a Ltiter from the Hague, June 25, * TW we ftill believe it was owing to fome private Declaration of the King of Pruffia to the French Court, that our Dominions were not invaded after the Taking of Antwerp, yet we are far from being fatisfied, that his Pruffian Majefty will contribute any Thing towards reducing the Power of France to the defired Limits. That Monarch, doubttefs, has it in his Power to throw fo much Weight into the Scale of the Allies, as would effectuate this great Work, which has been the conftant Object of all the Struggles of the Maritime Powers and the Houfe of Auftria for nowalmoft fixty Years, ' Nothing would be wanting that could be granted on the Part of thefe Allies, to engage him heartily in this En-terprize; but another' Senfe of his own Intereft than is ufoally made for him, and Ae gldriois Situation of being a kind of Arbiter among fo many contending Powers,, preventshim, perhaps contrary to his natural Inclinations,. from becoming a Party in this Quarrel. , ' His Pruffian Majefty is alreadyTo confiderable amongft, the firft-Spvereigns of Chriftendom, that he cannot quti look withjeakjofy upon thbfe few-Princes who are more' powerful than himfelf: But the greateft of thefe he had rather behold at a Difhnce than near him, and. in any other Part of Europe rather than in the Empire of Germany. Now which would bejthePower aggrandized'upon' the Humiliation of France is eafy to difcover, atid ft is no left eafy to perceive, that this Power is the laft which the Court of Berlin would wifh'to fee more confiderable. # ' . . � Thefe Reflections, we here believe, will farriafhthe' moll natural Interpretation of this Monarch's Cbududr, which we have accuftomed ourfdves to think altogether [ myfterious: And.from hence we conclude, thatitio' we: may depend upon him at any Time to fave this Republic from immediate Ruin, we have little room to hope his Afliftance in procuring Triumphs to either.usMor our Allies.'
