Pafs'd by the 6tubbington, Mauger, &oia Leghorn. - : �> LONDON. To the Author of the General Advertiser.' SIP, ^ IF we allow the French to be Judges of their own Inte-reft, an Honour which I believe their greateft Enemy will not deny them, it is certain, from the invariable Plan they have purfued for feme Ages, to get Pofleffion of the Netherlands,-which they have now almoft efFeftedi that no other. Acquisition can be of equal Value to them with this/ So much more does it import their Neighbours not to leave them in this Poffeflion by a Peace, tho' a War mould be continued fome Years for that Pufpofe only. This Intereft is indeed plain to every Man who reflects a Moment upon the Situation of the Netherlands,-the ftrong Places they contain, the already formidable T*ow,er of France, and the Jtmmenfity of. her Defjgns: But theSenfe of the French kings on this SybjecV will beft appear, by looking a little into the Hiftory of their Actions and Speeches. " " Not to go To far back as Lewis XI. Lewis XII. and Francis I. we will begin with Henry III, who reigned towards the End of the XVIth Century. This, Prince baked with Jealoufy upon the Elevation of his own Brother; Frincife, to the Quality "of Duke of Brabant and Earl 0/ Flanders, difcovering that he expecleaVthe'States of thofe Countries. Hsould have made: Choice of, himfelf; The fecret Griff* he conceived at this Difappointment was fo great, that he would never give his BrOtJier any: Aflif-tance to keep him itf Pofleffion, excuung himfelf" fey alleging the - Inconveniences that Jais intermeddling -might bring on the Kingdom. ' He fiatter'd himfelf, fays his ' Hilbrian, that the States of the Low-Countries, finding * themf4ves destitute of aH'Support, would throw them- * {elves at hU teet, fubmit to his Dominion, and fufFer ' him to annex their Country to his Crown upon his* own '� Conditions.' And, in effeel, after the Death of Francis, and William Prince of Orange, feeing the States in great Confufion on the Affair of Antwerp, he fent an Anibaila-dor to them, in Confidence of" receiving their Submif-fion. 1 Henry IV. his Succeffor, tho' profeffedly a great Friend to.the Dutch, was not lefs.defirous to become their-war Neighbours, jn 'Hopes that'Time might make him their Matter. It is,true, he never confeffed this Defign, and in-ftrufted his Ambaffadors in 1607, to declare to the'States, that the Infihuation to that Effecl: was a Falfity, of which his Majefty was willing to take the firft Opportunity to purge himfelf. But by future Inftruftions to the fame Mi-nifers, in 1609, it appears, that his Falfity wa� not fo great as he would have perfuaded their High Migntinefles: For it is there declared, that his Majefty well knew of how much Importance it is to be referved in this Defign, be-taufe of Confluences that might otheiwife follow; but &at he would not omit to prepare and facilitate all the Means on his Side to make it fucceed, if at any Time an Occafion, fhould offer, left he mould deferve the Reproaches of Pofterity for having let flip fuchan Advantage, thro' the Want of Forefight and Care. ^ It does not appear,, that Henry IV. ever carried his Views farther with Regard to the United Provinces: But with Refpeft to thofe which then depended on Spain, he rooft ardently wifhed to become their Matter, The Duke of Sully tells us in his Memoirs, That fpeaking one Day w the Opennefs cf his Heart concerning what he chiefly wfired, after mentioning the Recovery of his Kingdom of Navarre, � At leaft, faid his Majefty, that I may conquer ' r landers and Artois, and get them annexed by Treaty to ' the Body of my Dominions.' And, in the fame Me-' tooirs, we ara told, that talking freely another Day Y,ul this Duke, who was his Chief Minifter and Confi-*-*nt, the Kingexpreffing his Defign to marry again, told nim, my Second * Mate, had hisRight Arm (hot off, and three of my Men * were'Wounded, but I hope they all will do well.' By Letters from Newfoundland of the oth of May, fe-veral French Ships were feen on that Coaft, fleering to the Northward, fuppofed to be Fifhing Ships going to their ufual Places for Fifhing on the North Side of Newfoundland j but as they have had. a fevere Winter, it was ima-giued they would meet with fome fome Difficulty in getting into their Ports fo early as they were feen to pafs by in the Spring.-No Enemy had then giving any Difturbance at our Fifhihg-Places.-Several Veffels were arrived at New-England; out no particular Advices from Cape Breton. The Winter being fevere and cold, very little or no Seal-Oil had been made, and there was but little Appearance of Cod-FHh on the Coaft when the Letters came away. The Swift, Blanchard, from Barbadoes, for Gibraltar, is taken by the Spaniards, and carried into Old Gibraltar. The Outward-bound Weft-India Fleet that failed under Cenvoy of the Milford Man of War, were well the 15 th ult. in Lat. 47. 30. and had parted with the Newfoundland Ships. Yefterday it was faid, that the Breft Squadron has been put to Sea about 20 Days. On Tuefday Night laft the Men of War and Tranf-ports, bound to Cape Breton, which had failed from St. Helen's that Morning, put back again. We hear that the London and Garland Privateers are put into Kinfale in Ireland, and that the Captain of the former is dead. Yefterday Mr. Alderman Winterbottom, and Mr. Alderman Alfop, appear'd on the Huftings at Guildhall, and" declar'd their Confent to the Poll, that is now carrying on, and it is not doubted, but, on the Conclufion, they will be elefted by a great Majority: This Method of Election having always t>een experiene'd to be the moft juft, and impartial, and the Original Right of the worthy Livery of this City. On Wednefday laft was held a General Court of .the Corporation of the Royal Exchange Affurance, when a Dividend of Two per Cent, was declared, for Half a Year 'to Midfummer laft. Yefterday the Body of an OldMan very welldrefs'd was found floating near Somerfet Stairs. The Rebel Peers now in the Tower are to be tried by Way of Bills of Indiftmentfor High-Treafon, and allow'd 40 Days in ordejf to prepare for their Defence. Yefterday the Grand Jury of the County of Surry met purfuant to Adjournment, and found Bills of Indidtment againft 19 of the Rebels j which, with the former, makg the whole of thofe (Englifh and Scotch) taken at Carlifle. -And then the Court adjourn'd till Thurfday next.
