Extratl of a Letter from Canjlanti.nople, April 16, N.S. . Several Perfons have been iirangled and others be-\ headed, upon the bane Sufpicipn of having hadi Hand * in kindling the Fire which lately confumed the great Ar-c fenal ; and the Tarzana-Erfum has been ftript of all his ' Effects and Eftate, and'then banifhed to feme IflancTin the ' Archipelago. The Captain Bafhaw (High Admiral) has * had the good Luck not to be included in this Difgrace-, * but he is enjoyned to repair all the Damage at his own ' Expence. As the Ferfians continue to ravage all the * Country round about Kars, the Porte is continually filing ' off Troops to Aha, whither the Tartars, who ara ex-r"pecTed every Day; will likewife be fent. The Pcrte will * have three Armies in that Country this Year, viz. one of * 60,000 Men, under the Command ^of Yeyen-Mchemet ' Bafhaw, who is made Governor General of Natolia, * and will aft on the Side of Kars ; another of 30,000 4 Men, commanded by Achmet Bafhaw, Governor of * Aleppo, which is affembling towards Diarbekir ; and � the 3d Army willconfift of i^cooMen, under the Com- * mand of Huffein-Baftiaw, Governor of Van. Eefidcs * thefe three Armies there is a Body of 12000 Men, who * have Orders to march towards the Frontiers cf Perfia. ' A Perfian of Diltinc"tion is arrived here, difpatched by ' the Bafhaw of Babylon, with Proportions cf Peace ; but ' the P01 it ha; made him Anfwer, That his Propofo4� will * be liflencd to, as foon as there is no'further Difpute about ' the Grand Seignor's Sovereignty at Mecca.  Advices from Leghern of the 15th Inftant, N.S. fay, that Admiral Rowley's Fleet had pick'd up 27 French and Spanifh Veffels fince it failed for the Streights ; that it ftill cpntinued cruifing off Almeria and Canhagena, and that the Admiral had detached three Men of War to lie before jCadiz. They alfo tell us from Leghorn, that' the Inhabitants of the Mountains and Valley of Graffignano have taken up Arms againft the Auftrians, in Favour of their Sovereign the Duke of Modena. Extrafl of a Letter from Geneva, May 26, N.S. * We have received Advice, that" the AriTiy under * Count Gage began the 16th Inftant to file off by the * Walls of the. City of Genoa ; that th-s Army confided of ' 25000 Men, and took its Rou;e along the River Bafag- * no ; and that as fdon as the Infant Don Philip had AdT � vice thereof, he fent 4000 Grenadier?, with 5000 Horfe � and Dragoons before the Reft of his Army, in order to * occupy the Polls that lead to the Valley of Polfevero, * where the two Armies are to join. Marfhal MaiDebcis ' has repaired to Nice, and caufed the Troops under his * Command to file off into Provence. r According to Advices from Raiifbon of the 27th Inft. N.S. the Affair of the Heffian Troops is terminated ; The Veldt Marfhal Count Traun has diflipated the Apprehen-fions of foul Play, which the Commandant of thefe Troops had conceived ; ib that Matters being fettled in an amicable Manner, the Heffian Troops quitted their Camp near Leckhaufen on the 24th, and began their March for Ingol-ftadr, Which Place they entered the next Day, Drums b.eating, and Colours flying, with their Artillery, Baggage, %rrei Ammunition and Bread Waggons ; after which they depofited, every Company feparatcly, their Arms in the Arfenal of the Town. They now encamp partly on the Glacis of Ingolftadt, and the reft in the adjacent Villages. A Garrifon of 4500 Men has been left in that Fortrefs. The Obftacle which retarded Count Traun's March being thus removed, all the Divifions of his Army have refumed their March towards Mergentheim. They write from Auglbourg that the Bankers of that .City have received Orders to remit forthwith to Munich 100,000 Crowns, for the firft Term of the Subfidy granted to the Elector of Bavaria, the Difpofal of which was left to the Queen of Hungary. We hear from Paris, that the Parliament of that City have nominated 30 of their Members to go and complement jhe King on his late Victory over the Army of the Allies. They add, that the Marfhal Duke de Broglio died a few Days ago at his Seat in Normandy. They write from Vienna, of the 22d Inftant, N.S. that the Grand Duke's Departure for the Empire remained fixed as the 28th, as hath been already faid ; that M. Van Stang, Privy Counfellor of the Court of Bohemia, has been appointed Secretary of the Embaffy at the Dyet of Election, and was to fet out the 2;th for Fnncfort ; that M. Pran-dau, the third Embaffador Plenipotentiary to the faid Dyet, would take the fame Route a few Days after ; but that the ether two Embaffadors would not fet out 'till the 15th of June. Letters from Drefden obferve, that the Count de Vau-grenant, Minifter from the French Court, who is lately ar- rived there, has not yet hired any Houfe ; from whence they infer that his Excellency will make no long Stay a-mongft them. They add; that they expecT very fpeedily fome important News from Silefia, the Saxon Troops having marched out of their Cantonments, and being to join the Auftrians as foon as the Duke of Saxe Weiffenfels arrives in the Army. Extraft of a Letter from Francfort, May 30, N.S. 1 The French Troops have at laft quite evacuated Wet-' teravia, and quitted the Banks of "the Lahne, fome of ' them being gone to take Poft on the Mayn, and the reft ' on each Side of the Rhine : The Marquefs de la Fare, ' who commands them fince the Prince of Conti's Depar-' ture, has fixed his Head Quarters at Nierftein on this ' Side of the Rhine. The Corps of about 15,000 Men, ' who encamped fome time on the Right Side of the Mayn, ' from Hoechit down to Horfheim, have pafTed that River, ' in order to encamp at Schwaazheim, within two Leagues  of this City, and almoft oppofite to it, which is now fil-' led with Officers. There are (till, fome French Troops ' at Hoechft,'and others have been fent to Offenbach and Afchaffenbourg ; fo that we are in a Manner furrounded. ' Upon Advice, that the Veldt Marfhal Count Traun's ' Army has begun its March, the French are fending out ' many Parties towards Wertheim, and higher up towards ' the River Tauber, in order to get Intelligence of their c Motions and Strength.' Advices from the Camp of the Allies near LefSnes, dated the 30th Inft. N.S. run thus,--The Army will in all Appearance remain in this Camp, 'till we know the Fate of the Citadel of Tournay. In the mean time we are plentifully fupplied with Forrage, and all Sorts of Provifions. The 27th Inft. fame French Pandoures came up and burnt a Farm-Houfe within a League of our Camp; and laft Night they attacked fome of our advanced Polls, but being quickly repulfed, they retired into the Woods. Extract of a Letter from the Camp of the Allies near Lef-fines, May 31, N.S. ' Our Generals have had Advice that Orders have been ' difpatched to the Governor and the Commandant of the ' Citadel of Tournay, to defend jt 'till the laft Extremity. ' As we flatter ourfelves that it may hold out: at leaft three ' Weeks, the Army will have Time enough to be reinfor-' ced to fuch. a Degree, as to be able to attempt once more \ to raife the. Siege ; to effl-dt which, we are labouring ' with great Diligence, &c. Extract of a Letter from the Hague, June 2, N.S. 1 We have received Advice by an Exprefs who arrived ' here Yefterday, that MefTs. de Lintelo and Onderwater ' were arrived at Ghent, from whence they continued their ' journey to Tournay, with their High-Mightineffes Or- ?ers to the Governor, and Commandant of the Citadel. ' The Deputies of the Admiralty Colleges conferred Yef-' terday with'the Deputies of their High MightinefTes a-' b�uc the prefent State of the Marine. ' A'ccortVlng to trie lait Letters from German^, ~u lb:i� � koned that the Junction of the Veldt Marfhal Count ' Traun's" Army with that lately headed by the Duke of 1 Aremberg,'.but now commanded by General Bathiani, ' may be made on the 8th Inftanr We hear from Mentz, that Baron Keyferling, the Ruffian Minifter at Franckfort, is arrived there, to wait upon the Elector; but whether it is a Vifit of Ceremony, or a-bout any material Bufinefs, our Correfpondent does not inform us. We have Advice from Vienna of the Arrival of fixty Mules from Florence, laden with the Furniture and moft valuab'e Effects that were in the Palaces of the Houfe of Medics, which are reckoned to be worth upwards of 12 Millions of Florins. Letters from Amiterdam of the 4th of June, N.S. fay, that according to fome Advices from Flanders, Holtilities had been renewed before the Citadel cf Tournay ; and that they expected very foon to hear of another Action between the Allies and the French Army. Some Letters from Berlin mention, that there will fpee-dily be a fight Underftanding between his Pruffian Majefty and the Allies of the Queen of Hungary. On Tuefday Night an Exprefs arrived at St. James's, with Difpatches from his Royal Highnefs the Duke of Cumberland. Yellerday there 'was a Report of another Engagement at Tournay ; but we apprehend without Foundation. Yefterday came Advice, that his Majefty's Ships the Captain, Capt. Griffin ; and Princefs Louifa, Capt. Boys, arrived in Portland-Road on the 27th Inftant, and brought in the famous French Privateer, belonging to St. Maloes, call'd the Grand Turk, of 34 Carriage Guns, and 250 Men. It is faid, that the Monmouth Man of War, Capt. Har-rifon, was left by them in- Chafe of another Ship of the fame Force, fuppos'd to be the Grand Biche, (Confort of the Grand Turk.)-And it was laft Night reported, that the faid Privateer was actually brought into Torb.ty by the Monmouth.-Thefe two were the Privateers of moft Confequence the French had at Sea. The Two Brothers, Brown, from St. Kitts, is arrived at Briftol ; who came from thence the 19th of April, with the Ruth, Turner, who was taken the following Day. Capt. Brown confirms the Account of the Arrival of the French Squadron at Martinico ; and fays, that they were greatly alarm'd at St. Kitts ; but that the Inhabitants had taken all poflible Meafures to fiuftrate any Attempts on that Jfland ; b/ putting the Martial Law ftrictly in force, planting a Number of Cannon in proper Places, fecuring the Shipping, Sec. The Ship'which was re-taken, and fent into Milford, is cali'd the Neptune, and bound from Carolina to London. The Dove,-, from Cork, is arrived at Bnftol ; by whom we have an Account, that the Saphire Mm of War, Capt. Keppel, has taken and brought into Ivnfa'e, a Spanifh Privateer, of 16 Carriage Guns, and 157 Men. The Lastitia, Mullins, from St. Kitts, was taken by the-Grand Turk, and fent into Sf. Maloes. The Antigua Planter, Hamilton, from Antigua, is ta-ken by the.Stag and Hermione Privateers, and carried into St. Maloes. The Stafford, Perry, from Leverpool, for London, is " taken by a French Privateer, and carried into Havre-dc-grace. The Either, Bowes, bound from Newca(lie to Virginia, was taken by two French Privateers (whom we lately men* tion'd) call'd the Royal, and Dutchefc Penthievre, on the nth Inftant, fix Leagues to the Northward of Shetland ; but was ranfom'd. The Mary, Hill, bound from Amfterdam to Carolina, was taken at the fame time; but. the French would not ranfem her, intending to fit her out for a Privateer. On Monday laft the Fox Privateer, Capt. Richard Caftle, mounting 16 Six-Pounders, 20 Swivels, and above 120 Men, fail'd from Gravefend on a Cruize on the French and Spaniards.-As the Captain has given inconteflible Proofs of his Ability, there is the moft probable Expectations of Succefs, if he meets with any thing to give him an Oppor-tun'ty of Confirming it. They tell us from Leominfter in Herefordfhire, that an Information was granted in the Court of King's-BencR this Term againft feven cf the Principal Rioters, concern'd in mobbing and abufing the People call'd Metbodijls, in that Town laft Summer. They write from Newcaftle, that on Tuefday fe'nnight a barbarous Murder was committed near the Water-fide between Sunderland and Hilton-Caftle, viz. Mr. Thomat Alder, fenior, being occafionally that Way, was heard to call 10 one Sttphen Haddock, a Keel-man, (then going up Wear River in his Keel) that he would foon be aground ; upon which Haddock anfwer'd, that if he did run afhoar he would cut his Throat: Soon after, Haddock ranalhoar, and ran up to Mr. Alder, and having knock'd him dowri* afterwards cut his Tnroat, ripp'd up his Belly, and turn'd out his Guts, and then cut off his Privy Parts. Mr. Alder's Boy coming by at the Time, afk'd Haddock why he us'd his Mailer in that manner ; on which the Villain fwore he would kill him too ; but the Lad rode to Hilton^ Caftle, and got five or fix Men, who came and apprehended him, and carried him before Baron Hilton, who committed him to Durham Goal.
