Pafs'd by Carteret, Stephenfon, from Maryland ; and London Packet, Ferris, from Moni-. ferrat. LONDON. Ext rail of a Letter from Amferdam, May 28, N.S. � The Auftrian Army commanded by Count Traun, which we reckon begun its March the 21ft Inftant, in feveral Divifions, is to aflemble in one Body on the River Tauber in Franconia. Jt is not yet poffible to guefs what Route it will afterwards take, fince it will then be at hand to advance towards the Neckar,or the Mayne, in order to draw near Francfort, or elfe penetrate into the Land-graviatettf Heffe-Caffel, and fo oblige Prince William of Heffe to declare in Favour of the Common Caufe, and lend his Troops to the Maritime Powers. ' On the other Hand, the Duke of Aremberg's Army (eems to draw off more and more from the Prince of Conti, for it has actually entered theDutchyof Bergues; with what Defign no Body can yet tell, feeing it has quitted a very advantageous Camp, where it could not be forced by an Army much fuperior ; and befides, it is sot very brifkly purfued by the Prince of Conti's Army, which does not care to draw off from the Lahne and the Mayne. Some People furmife that the Duke of Arem-berg may probably wheel about to the Left, and advance to the Frontiers of Hefle, in order to join the Army under the Velt-Marftial Count Traun, or at lealt preferve a Communication with it. � We have fame Advices which fay, that the Prince of Qonti has detached 10,000 Men to the Upper Rhine ; but it is mucli more probable that they^re defigned to reinforce the French Army on the Neckar, in order to enable the Marquis de Segur and LieutenantGeneral Balin-courtto keep their Ground in the principal Polls which they are to make themfelves Mailers of on the Mayne above Francfort, in Cafe the Auftrian Army continues to take the Route of Mergentheim on the Tauber.  We are allured that the Queen of Hungary has declared to feveral Courts of the Empire, that me had no Accommodation to make with the King of Prufiia, but upon Condition that Silcfia be reftored, and that his Pruf-fian Majefty does even make a formal Renunciation of his Pretenfions to that Dutchy : Which we forefee he never will do, unlefs he is abfolutely forced to it. The-bell Politicians in this Country condemn this Stiffnefs of the Court of Vienna, who ought to confider (fay they) that the Acquifition of the King of Pruflia's Friendfhip, or even his Neutrality, would be worth 100,000 Men to the Queen. In the mean time, if is certain, that the BeaSt Skin is already divided, and that the Elector of Saxony, King of Poland, will have a good Part of it. He has already been promifed, that Part of the Lower Silefia, which lies between the Lower Lufatia ard Poland, may always have a free PifTage to and from his Kingdom, without being obliged to go through her Territories. To effect this, the Pruffians muft firil be quite driven out of Silefia, and this in all Probability is their Plan : The only Queftion is, whether they will be able to execute it. ' Affairs in Italy feem to grow worfe and worfe every Day. We are now fully perfuaded that the Treaty between the Spaniards and Genoefe is brought to Perfection/and the latter will give the former a Paffage through their Country, befides Provisions and Artillery. '1 hey ' talk of opening the Campaign with the Siege of Tor-' tona, which is "to be given $0 the Repubiick, if taken.' 'They write fromWarfaw, that the Troops of the Crown � Army of P�land, that lie neareftthe Frontiers of Silefia, * have received Orders to advance to the Confines of that ' Dutchy, to obferve the Motions of the Auftrians and ' Pruffians, and hinder any of their Parties from enteiing ' the Polish Territories. The Soldiers which the Pope lately difbanded having taken on in under Count Gage, he has pubiifhed an Edi'd forbidding all his Subjects, of what Rank or Condition foever they be, to enter into the Service of any Foreign Power, without exprefs Perraiflion from the Government. Yefterday there was Advice, that the Dover Man of War, Capt. Collins, has brought into. Yarmouth Road, a French Privateer, call'd the Bon-Ami Louis, of 14. Carriage Guns, (Nine Pounders) 16 large Swivels, and 14.5 Men. The Phoenix and Trial Privateers of Briftol, have taken and carried into Kinfale two French Ships, bound from Bourdeaax to Martinico. The Dove, Bebber, from Biddeford to Newfoundland, was taken by a Spamlh Privateer, of great Force, 60 Leagues to the Weftward of Cape-Clear : But three D^ys after was fortunately re-taken by the Old-Noll and Ty-grefs Privateers, and fent into Plymouth. As foon as the Privateers had difpatcbed away the Dove, they went in purfuit of the above Privateer. The Sunderland, from Lancafter for Barbadoes, was taken the 10th of April, O.S. by a French Privateer belonging to Dieppe, of 12 Carriage and 16 Swivel Guns, and 114 Men, Capt. Figoly Commander; who the next Day took the Vernon, Brown, from Glafgow, to Virginia ; and the following Day, the Jane Hyth, from Leverpool ; which laft was ranfom'd ; but the two firit, with the Privateer, arrived at Breft the 27th of April. . We hear, that for fome Days paft fix French Privateers have been hovering off New-Haven, which had greatly alarmed the People of that Place. Yelterday a Number of fine Horfes were brought to Town from Northamptonfhire, which had been bought up for the late General Churchill's Dragoons. Yefterday-Rooftby, Efq; of Stratford, was married to Mifs Scott, Daughter of the late Col. Scott, of Weft-ham in Effex, a beautiful young Lady, with a confidera-ble Fortune. Lad Week died, at his Seat at Horndon in Effex, William Kingfman, Efq; one of his Majelly's Juftices of the Peace for that County. Yefterday died, at hh Lodgings near Twickenham, Mr.-Charles Tanckted, an eminent Woolien-draper in Ruffel-ftreet, ,Covent-Garden. The fame Day died Mr. Edward Cocks, Chaplain to the Count de Offorio, Ambaffador from the King of Portugal ; a Gentleman of great Learning, and elteem'd by all that were Perfonally acquainted with him. On Tuefday Morning early the Houfe of Mrs. Lampri-moda, in Poland-ftreet, St. James's, was broke open and robb'd of a quantity of Plate, and other Thing to a confi-derable Value. On Saturday laft as a Servant belonging to Mr. Whit-acre's Brewhoufe, in Gravel-Lane, Southwark, was coming down from the Granary, with a Sack of Malt on his B ick. the Ladder was thrown down by another Servant s rolling a Caikagainit it, by which Accident the poor Fel-low'sSkuIl was fraftur'd and was otherwife fo much bruis'd, that tho' he was immediately fent to St. Thomas's Hofpi-tal, and all poffible Means us'd to fave him, he died in a very little Time. iJe--wcaJlU> May i8. Laft Tuefday Warrants were iffued forth by the Magiilrates to the Conftables and other Officers, for apprehending all vagrant and disorderly Pexfons, feveral Outrages and Difordeis having lately teen cpnunitted in the publick Streets of this Town; in Virtue of which Warrants, 2j Perfons were brought before the Magistrates the Day following, four of whom were whipt, one fent for a Soldier, four committed to the Houfe of Correction, and the reft pafVd to their refpedtive Settlements. His Majefty's Ship the Faulcon, the Hon. John Birmingham, Commander, of 6 Nine-Pounders, 12 Six-Pounders, and about 70 Men, fell in laft Tuefday, off Flamberough-head, with a French Privateer of 18 Nine-Pounders, 6 Six-Pounders, and about 200 Men ; the Faulcon fought her feveral Glaffes, but Night coming on they both lay to, and in the Morning renewed the Engagement, when the Privateer, having loft a great many Men, thought proper to (beer off. The Fox Man of War of 20 Guns foon afrer falling in with .the Faulcon, and being infvrn:ed of what had iiappen'd, immediately gave Chace to the Privateer, who had not got out of Sight ; fo that we expect fhortly to have a good Account of her. The Faulcon would have chas'd the Privateer, but that her Main-maft was Ihot through by a NinerPounder, and the Captain having his Leg fhot off above the Knee with another Nine-Pounder, they durft not proceed, leaft they fronld carry.away their Main-matt. None of his Crew ("who all behav'd well) werekili'd, and only two wounded.
