The h French Troops which were cantoned in and about Worms, are retired to Spierbache. Hague, Nov. 5, N.S. The Letters of this Day from Paris bring Advice, that the French Court, upon farther Confideration of the Inconveniencies of a Winter Campaign, had countermanded the Orders lately given for recommencing the Operations in Flanders. The Province of Guelderland has, within thefe few Days, fent Orders i and Powers to their Deputies here, to propofetothe general Affembly a new and farther Augmentation of the Re-publick's Army with twenty or thirty Thoufand Men. Count Wafner, who has been for fbme Time paft at the Court of Bonn, on the Part of their High Mightineffes, is returned home. The Abbe de la Ville fets out from this Place To-morrow or next Day, on his return home. Baron Hamerftein, Minifter- from the Elector of Cologne, has received his Letters of Revocation.

By all Accounts here, the Enemy is very ftrong at Ghent, and the neighbouring Places. X LONDON. u ^ f We hear from the Hague, that in a private Letter handed d about -there from Rome, the]jLare told that the Difference CO with the Court of Vienna gfowevery Day greater. -The Pope not only refufes to acknowledge the�Grand Duke of P Tufcany for Emperor, declaring his Ei^&ibn to be far from Z unanimous, but hath fent Orders to h^s Nuntio at Braffffc, as well as to him at Vienna, to return home immediately. ' However, adds this Letter, we are perluadefl .that the ' Wrath of his Holinefs, which fpfings from the little Re-' fpe�t that was fhewn to his Reprefentations at Franckfort, ' will not be of long Duration. There are certain Advices from Italy, that the King of Sardinia has made a frefh Declaration of his Refolution to continue firm in his pretent Alliance ; but that his Majeity ' hoped, in Return, the moil ferious Regard would be had to his calamitous Situation, and that the Auftrian Army would be reinforced to at leaft 50,000 Men, conformably to Treaties. The Prince of Litchtenftein, the new Auftrian General, who has been in Conference with his Ma-jelly upon this Subject, has affur'd him, that the neceffary Succours were already upon their March, and that he was in hopes as foo'n as they arrived, to be in a Condition not only of Hopping the Progreis of the Spaniards, but of retaking what they had got Poffeffion of in the now-expiring Campaign. Notwithftanding the Diligence of the Britifh Privateers (of which forty are now at ^ea) there are fofty-feven Sail  of French' Ships arrived in the different Ports of France from St. Domingo : Many of thefe Ships have Iain more W than Twelve Months for a Convoy. q1 On Saturday Night it was rumour'd, that Mr. Kelly, and another Perfon, in difguife, were taken on board a fmall V eiTel, and carried Prifoners into Flufhing^ s~ On Saturday laft was married at Streatham in Surry, A--Manfell, Efq; of Whitby in Yorkfhire, to Mifs Sally Halfey, Heirefs to the late Mr. Halfry of Deplford^ an agreeable young Lady, with 1 o,ooe 1. Fortune. '  On the 28th pair died near Chefter William Bond, Efq; a Gentleman poffefs'd of a plentiful EMate in S:affbrdihire. He came a few Days before from Dublin, where lie had been to tranfact fome Affairs. Laft Saturday died at Deptfoid, after a few D \ys Illnefs, Mr. Cheyney, Supervifor of the Excife, for the Diftrict .of' Cravefend in Kent. From the Gazette's taking no Notice of the Laird of Clenbucketbeing taken, as mentioned in feveral of Saturday's Papers, we arc induced to conclude, that there was flo Truth in that Account. Chatham, Nov. 1, 1745- j MINUTES of the 'Court-MartIAl, on I . Board the London Continued. * Th: Court had no fooner a'ffembled at the ufual Hour, than every Body was ordered to withdraw, and after three Hours being fhut up the Court was opend again, when the Prifoner was told, that it was the Opinion of the Court, that Lang ton, committed by Order of Che Lords of the Admiralty, was not guilty of perjury, which by "j ietter would be fpecified to their Lordfhips. ' Then Mr. Lynch was examined in behalf of the Prifo- '� ' ner ; who, when call'd into Court, faid he had no more ' Witrieflesto be examin'd in his [behalf; but afterwards � ' faid he |had one more. * Then the Court adjourned till Monday Morning. Whitehall, Oil. 30. There are Advices from Berwick, of the 25th at Night, that the Carriages which the Rebels had demanded frcm different Places, all came into Edinburgh upon the zzd and 23d, tut were immediately dif-mill'ed ; and the People belonging to them were told, they mould have fome Days Notice before their March to get them ready again. Upon the 2 2d they had a General Review between Leith and Edinburgh. WBttt&W, Nov. 1. There is Advice from Berwick of the 28th of October, that upon the 26th Glenbucket's and the Athol Men march'd to Muffelburgh, and gave out they were to ftay there till further Orders. The Rebels feemed to be packing up their Baggage upon that Day, and their Cannon, confuting of feven Pieces, were fent to the Eaft- ' ward. A Detachment of 5 or 600 of their Men was ila-tion'dat Allaway, at a narrow Paffage upon the Firth, where they were erecting a Battery to fecure a Paffage, and building fiat-bottom'd tioats for bringing over their Arm*, landed at Montrofs and Stonehaven. The Ludlow and Fox Men of War were in the Road'of Leith. It was reported that the. Rebels had great Differences amongft them-felves. They had a fmall Camp upon the Plain between Inverafk and Dalkeith. Lord Loudon was at Invernefs with a good Number of Men, and had, by thofe Accounts, beenjoin'd by the Sutherland People, the Monroe's, Sec. The Campbells of Argyilfhire were faid to be in Arms for the King, andencamp'd at Inverary. Other Letters mention, that John Campbell, Efq; Lieutenant Colonel to Lord Loudon's Highland Regiment, had, with three Companies thereof, attack'd, difarm'd aud difperfed 700 of the Macleans, who were upon their March to join the Rebels near Edinburgh. General Blakeney and his Men, in Stirling Caille, were all well. Marfhal Wade was at Newca-ftle upon the 29th, with all the Troops from Doncafter, excepting thofe from Ireland, which are one Day's March behind. He prgpofed halting at Newcaftle a Lay or two, and then to march on towards Edinburgh. The feven Battalions from Flanders were all fafely arrived at Newca-} ftle and Berwick, together with the feven Companies of Bracket's Regiment, Dutch, which had been left in Holland.
