Wind S.W. Townfljend, -The Caefar, from Jamaica, is arrived at L O N DON. ExtraSi of a private Letter from Amjierdam, March 26, N.S. � The AufWan Minifters rtill continue to flatter them- * felves, that an Accommodation may be brought about -A Vikb^tbe Court of Muwchrs but wevcannqfrtril" wtwi lhtyr^ ground their Hopes upon, for all our Advices from Bavaria, which are frefher than thofe from Vienna, abfo-lutely deftroy thofe Hopes, confidering what Preparations are making on both Sides for a vigorous Campaign, and the other Meafures purfued by the Court of Munich. � Moreover, the French Minifters make no Myftery of faying, that the Party is fo well made with the Prince* of the Union of Francfort, and in particular with the Eleftor of Bavaria.that it may be depended upon that neither his moft Chriftian Majefty, nor his Allies, will lay down their Arms, until they have obtained juft Satisfac- "* And accordingly we fee, that the King of Pruffia, who is gone to put himfelf at the Head of his Army, will now make the greateft Efforts; and they write from Si'efia, that his Army is as fine, as compleat, and as numerous, as ever it was; whilft that of the Auftrians difperfed in ieveral Places, appears no Way able, even when re-aflem-bled, to make Head againft his Pruflian Majelly.  They write from Peterfburgh, that it now plainly appears that Court will no otherwife concern itlelf with the Troubles of Europe, but by its good Offices j at leafl it is certaift, that as yet there is no Orders iflued for the March of any Troops, except the Corps which the Em- Some People looks upon the Offer of Ruffia's Mediation as a Pretext to exeufe the Emprefs from entering into any ulterior Engagements, efpecially to the prejudice of the King of Pruffia, with whom (be will by no Means embroil herfelf. * According to fome Advices from Francfort, a French Party have carried off a certain Count, who was going Exprefsto Vienna from the Duke of Aremberg : Several Letters of great Importance have been found upon him, efpecially one, wherein the Duke' gives Advice to the Queen of the bad Condition of his Army, and complains of having been fent very unfeafonably upon this March to the Mayn, whereby his Army has been ruined, efpecially the Cavalry. The Allies are intrenching themfelves and affembling "und theLahne, in o^Iiffj^ijJfgOrthe ^9^9Jttlttjfc�; that are'toDe "lent' tnern ; Dnt^net^llion 15, whether Marflial Maillebois, whofe Army is fuperior to them, will give them Leifure to receive thofe Reinforcements: It is thought he will not, for by the laft Advices from that Quarter, he was to refume his March the 22a In-ftant, in order to draw near the Lahne. * It is currently reported here, that France's Declaration  of War againft the Republick will be fpeedily published. Extratl of another Letter from Amjitrdam, dated March 30, JV.S. � The French Troops under the Command of Marflial * Maillebois have continued their March towards the � Lahne, in Ipite of the continual Rains and the Badnefs of * the Roads. We are now impatient to hear, whether  their Deiign is to pafs that River, in order to attack the  Allies, or to turn off to the Right, and fo get into the x^-T-crrUowwoll'iithey�^tt>c-iatter, onMwsy in-r  fer that they ddign to penetrate into the Electorate of  Hanover.  Our Advices from the Lower Rhine fay not a Word of * the Army of the Allies fmce they told us that it had �  paffed the Lahne in order to re-affemble along that * River ; fo that we don't know what Motions it has made 4 ftnee the French have drawn near the Lahne. It is pro-  bable thanhe Hanoverians have retired, iince they were  canton'd in the Neighbourhood of Weilbourg, and thaf  we are now told the French have taken Poffeflion of t! �c � Place. * We have no News at all of the Munfter Troops, and  yet they ought to have joined e'er now the Arm/ of the  Allies; but it feems the Thing is not yet done, and very 4 probably will never be ; for it is confirmed, that the Elec-4 tor of Cologne is far from being Heady in his Engage-4 ments with the two Maritime Powers, and 'tis very much  to be feared, that in a little Time he will let them know  more of his Mind. ' They write from Munich, that the Count de Looscon-' tinuesto vifit frequently the Minifters of that Court, and  ftrcngly exhorts them to endeavour at an Accommoda-4 tion with the Court of Vienna by the good Offices of the  King of Poland, The Bavarian Minifters have again 4 told him, that the Eleflor is not avcrfe to ft, provided 4 his Electoral Highriefs's Allies, who he will never dc-4 fert, be included in fuch an Accommodation : Thefe 4 Minifters added, that they wera not afraid of the Arms 4 of the Court of Vienna j that they were not only able 4 to fuppbft themfelves with the Afliftance of their Allies, 4 but even to recover fpeedily the little Corner of Bavaria 4 which the Auftrians ftill occupy, and affert the juft Pre-' tenfions of the Houfe of Bavaria, .&c. 4 We likewife hear from Munich, that M. Stoppani, 4 the Pope'srNuntio, whom his Holinefs has appointed to  go to the Dyet of Eleftion in Quality of Nuntio Extra-4 ordinary, has received Orders to repair to the Bifhop of  Bamberg and Wurabourg, and afterwards to the three ' EccJefialHck Electors, in order to exhort them to Peace, ' and �ngage them to favour the lnterefts of the Elector of 4 Bavaria. * The General Converfation in this Country ftill turns 4 4tpon the approaching �pen Rupture with France ; but 4 thefe Reports are as yet only grounded upon fome private 4 Lc ters, which do indeed mention it as a Thing that we 4 mull certainly expecV Ext railof a Letter from an Ojficer on board the Hunter Privateer, Capt.

The Captain has added a Share more for my Bravery, and hat pro- mis'd me x Prefent from the Owners.-1 had a Ten- *p(Jund Shot came into my Cabbin, which tore all my Bedding to Pieces, fo that I was forced to throw it ove: board. ---We are now repairing our Ship in order to proceed on a fecond Cruize.----I thank God, I am very well and received no Hurt, the/ the Shot flew about like Hail, and kill'd and waunded Men lay by me on all Sides,, and yet I had no more Thoughts of dying than if I had been eating or drinking. I am, &c. By a private Letter from Nieupcrt we are affured, that on tke 25th, N S. three flout Privateers came out of Dunkirk, on the 26th came out three more, and on the 27th one. Amongil thefe there are two of confiderable Fcfee carrying each of them Pieces of Cannon.
