Extracl of a Letter from Ratiiion, June 18. * The Imperial Minifter, Author of the Commentary * which accompanied the Marquis de Caftellane's Memo- * rial, remarks," that the French Ambafiador is deceived, 1 when he flatters himfelf that the Ottoman Porte will not � acknowledge iheEIe&ion of his Imperial Majefty ; fince * for a long' Time paft, there has been nothing wanting ' with regard to that'Acknowledgement, but the Cere-' mony dhly.-I will give you a Specimen of the other � Remarks made by fliat Miniften *' The Arguments of the French Amb:f&dor hang per-" fectly well together. The La-jvs of'Germany, according ** to him, exclude the Grand Duke from tbe Imperial *e Crmun ; and this EleSion make: tbe Empire a fecond ** lime hereditary in the Houfe of Aujli la, in of " thofe Laivj.-Ought not one to- be finitr-.n with the " Force of fuch folid Reafoning ?-But however that may " be, the Confeffion at leaft is fincere. " At the Beginning of the War, the Pretenfions, of the " Houfe of Bavaria ferved for a Pretext to colour the " Rupture of a Peace,. (worn to but a few -Years before : " And as this War vyas begun long before it was declared, " the Declaration of it was founded upon the fame Mo-" tive.-But the Public is now obliged to the Count de " Caftellane for the true Caufe of it.' He had declared it " before to the Forte/ tho' his Court had carefully con-" cealedit in the Empire. And could the Electors be per-,( mitted to chufe a Head, �againft the Election of whom " France had declared fhi would employ all her Forces ? " But as the Count de Caftallane, after having declared, uke, add;, That France conjlantlyjur-, ** fues her Projed ; and, as Jbe had not departed from it. " after the King of Pi ujjiz s firft Peace, fie 'would not " now abandon it j the Author aflcs what Dependance can " be made upon the Declarations-of that Cirowri ?; Efpe-" cially fince, exa&ly at the fame. Time that M'. de Caf-" tellane fpoke in this Manner at Conflaminople, M. de la " Noue declared to the Court of Wirtemberg, Tb�t the prefent Refufdl-tvas only in Con/equenceof the fVt " bis Aitgvft Confort ; and lhat nothing was 'wanting but. *' the Name, his Mojl Chrrfian Majefy doing nothing like **' cMhat be fhould hwve done in Confequence of fuch a Refu-" ful; if he had been inclined to pejiji in it, and carry it to " t/itutmo/l Extremity.'" We hear that Part of the.Forces which was iWnded for CapeBreton, will be fent :o Flanders; and others toCarlifle, to replace two new Regiments, lately difbanded. We are aflur'd from jjood Authority that Lord Lovat, is a Prifoner at Fort Auguftus; and that foon after he was; brought thither, he wrote a Letter to his Royal Highnefs; the Duke, in which he defir'd to have the Honour to kifs: his Hand; prornifing, if it was granted him, to make hine extraordinary Discoveries.-He was taken by (-'apt. ^ergufon of the Furnace Bomb, in a Bat, atrempting t.o get on boa^d a.Ship i and.was brought to Fort Auguftus m a Horfe-Litter, pr rather Cage.
