IEMAIN his Majefty's Ships the Dnke and Shorcham, and Falkland Sloop, with the Outward-bound, as in my laft. Sail'd laft Night the Fox and Privateer on a Cruize. Came down the Charming Molly, Mildrum, for Falmouth. Wind S.byW. Graveftnd, June 19. Pafs'd by the Elizabeth, Matfall, from Guernz^; St. Johannes, Mow j and the Lawrence and Mary, Holt, from Norway ; the Lady Elizabeth, Hafiel, from Dantzick ; and Lady Elizabeth, Vinck, from Am-fterdam. The Mary and Sufannah, Purchas, is arrived cfF Dover, in 36 Days, from Leghorn. LONDON.' Ext rail of a Letter from the Hague, June 2;, N.S. 1 If we may credit our Letters from Berlin, the " Number of Trophies taken from the Saxons and Anf-  trians, encreafes every Day in purfuing them into Bohe-  mia : They reckon already above 80 Pieces of Cannon  1; Standards, and other things in Proportion. Thofe  Letters add, that they hear the Combined Army has re-' tired to Konigfgratz in Bohemia ; that the Pruffian Army � has likewife entered that Kingdom, and that his Pruffian  Majdty appears to be refolved to attack his Enemy ' wherever he can overtake them, or el(e drive them into � Prague. - W e {hall iee whether he will able to execute � (his Project. � in the mean Time, the Letters we receive from the ' Combined Army aiTure us, that it is in lo advantageous  a Pofiti&fl, from Jaromitz to Konigfgratz along the Lib,  and fr.-m- thence to Neui'lao't, drawing towards Mora vis,.  that they think there is noihing to be feared from the  Prufiians ; and that Prince Charles may wait quietly there ' f >r the Reinforcements marching to him from Saxony, ' Auiiria, Mori via, Sec. 4 Oiir Advice from Berlin likewife inform us, that the 4 King of Prutfia has left fome Pro .ps in Silefi^, to join  thole he had on the Oder, and then march in Qiieil of  the Hungarian lnfiKgents, and oblige them to abandon 4 all the Upper Sil lia : That Pruiiim Majdly has alfo ' fent a pretty large Detachment towards the Frontiers of � Lufatia, either to enter it cffiftvely, or elfe to oblige his  Poliih Majeity to lend Troops thitner, and fo hinder him  from reinh rcing his Army in Bohemia. * Our Let crs from Francfort art far from agreeing about 4 the real Situation of Affairs in that Neighbourhood. ' Some reprefent the junction of General Traun's and 4 Count Rithiani's Armies, as a very eafy Thing, and jult 4 ready to be done ; and others afTure us, that this Junction 4 is very difficult, nay, almoir. impracticable, unleis (j'ene-4 ral Bathiani refolves to pafs through the Territory of  Fulda, and leave die great Foreft of Sptffart on his Let � Hand. If he does this, add they, the Prince of Ccnti 4 gains his Point, which is to keep the Auftrian> at a Dif-4 tance from Francfort and the Lower Mayne ; but if Ba. ' thiani takes another Route, or Count Traun comes out  of his advantageous Camp, it may be depended on that  there will be a Battle the Prince of Conti's Army being  60,000 llrong, and confequently a Match for the oLher 4 t.vo Armies put together. 4 Now that the Citadel of Tournay has furrendered, we 4 are anxious to know what the French will go about next. 4 It is the general Opinion here, that they will undertake ' t:ic S:ee;c ot Namure, and employ therein thtTroops that � ;i.:e conn rig from the three Bifhopricks, as well as thofe in 1 the Neighbourhood of Philipville, Matibege. &c. which ' amount to about 40,000 Men; whilit the Grand Army 4 obferves the Motions of the Allies. Yet many Peop;e 4 doubt that this is only a Feint, and that the French King_ 4 has fome other Project in his Head.' Yeflerday an Exprefs arrived with an Account, that his MajelVs Ships the Barfleur, Capt. Mitchell ,- with the-C'hicheller, and the Portfmouth and Princefs Royal Store-fhips, and the Hinchenbrook Sloop were all arrived at Spitliead from the Straits, and brought over a great Number of the Officers who were in the late Engagement in the Mediterranean. They left Admiral Rowley the 4th of ]une, and inform us, that Commodore Ofborn had cruiz'd tjom the 26th of April to the zd of June, between Cape Sc. Vincent.and Cape Spartell, in queft of the French Squadron ; and that on the 29th of May they flood fo clofe in with Cadiz, that they could plainly fee there was but one French Map of War, and a Spanifh Ship, with a Pennant, in the Bay.-The Spanifh Fleet are (till at Catthagena ; ?.nd the Real is moor'd Head and Stern.-And that four very rich Ships were every Moment expected at Cadiz, Irom the Welt-Inches.-Juft before thefe Ships left Admiral R.ovvley, a Xebeck and a Barcolongo belonging to his Squadron had taken a French Ship from Turky, very richly laden, off Sardinia. On Wednefday lall the Eagle Privateer,' Capt. Bazely, vrived at D'jver, and brought in with him a Cutter belonging to Haltings, which he took going into f5o!oign, v/itri Money on board to purchafe a. Cargo, in order to Smuggle it into England.-This fcandalous and perni-ci3u; Trade is it ill carried on as brifkly as before the War v.'ith France. Yeiterday came Advice, that the Yertrude, Ball, from Br.ftol, for Africa ; and alfo leveral Coalters, are taken by a h rench Privateer ; but we know not where they are carried into.
