By fecret Advices from the Dyet of Sweden, we learn, that the French Party, defpairing of Conqueft in the open Field, have had Recourfe to Political Stratagems,- which might have turned out to their Advantage.- and we reckon thofe Equipages will be ready by the 18th Jnftant. There is much Talk of the new Project of a Quadruple Alliance between the King, and tlwir Polifh, Pruffian and Swedifh Majefties, in order to itfengthen theTrien'dfiup between thqrfe Powers. Accord-'ng to Letters by the laft Poft from Provence, the Marquis de Cruffol having been inform'd that there was on the other Pjde of the Varo, a Poft frparatsd from the King of Sardinia's Army, garrifon'd by 300 Piedmonteze Soldiers, he got together all thePlarJes and other Materials they could fiad, and, having made a Kirjc? of Bridge, crofs'd the River wjth a Patty, fjrrounded the faid 300 Men, and made l_hem all Pnfoners, without.any Lofs of his Side, but of a few Soldiers wounded. Lord Middleton, an Engbfh No-ejeman, who adher'd to the Fortuneof eh� Stuart Family, died two nays ago in the' Caftle of St. Germain en Laye. f he MarJha) de Belleifle has had feveral Conferences with the Miiu;iry about the Augmentation of the Ar jy in Pro-v:r.:e. - Extra j 9f a letter frotH Fame:, dated Nov. i. % The Engl:Qi might have done us irreparable Damage, * if the vGetier�i, who commanded the Debarkation ha" Th^' will net catch ' us again fo unprovided. AH the Places will be farnlftied ' with Provifions arid AtnmunitjOn, and fufHciently -g#ri-r fon*d to propel them from any future /nfults. Extract of a Letter from Milan, dated fifyv. J. * The Court of - Vienna has t'ranfoutied Orders to her Generals, commanding therh to march fome Detach-m*nts of Cavalry and. ,fhfantr>- With all Speed to; the Side of Tbrtona, with a'ReTolutioh to. reinforce the Troops, which furrounded that Placed and to flrengtheh the Blockade. This was eHeem.'d the more rtece.u'ary, as the Garrifori of Torftmaiiad ventured feveral Times out of the Town, and gone a foraging in all the Places within a League about. The Situation of the Troops which occupy this Place is very ibgular, fir.te they re-'main by themfelves almoft in the Middle of Italy, feparated 150 Leagues from the Army of the Two Crowns, which is on the other Side the A1J�. LONDON. i The Emprefs has ordered her Minifter at the Court of Sardinia, t,o declare to that King,, that five will as foon as poflible, come to a thorough Regulation with regard to whatever concerns the Capitulation of Genoa, and the Execution of the Article of the Treaty of Worms-, wiucn-re-gards Placentia. In the mean Time, the Citadel of that Place continues occupied by Aultrians; but the Town and Civil Government is under the Orders of his Sardinian Majefty. The chief Points yet to fettle concerning Placentia are, in refpeft to the Magazines, Artillery and Pxi-foners, that were left there by tr.e Spaniards at their Retreat. The Corn and Forage have been already fold; and the Money is put iu Depcfit tili the abfolute Decifion of this Affair between the two Courts, which does not, however, interrupt the perfect Harmony between tfcern upon the Operations concerted againft the Common Enemy. General Count Leutmm having excufed himfelf from .commanding the Piedmontefe in the Expedition againft Provence, the King has given the Command of his 18 Battalions to the Marquis de Balbian, formerly Commandant of Valenza, an Officer whe has ferved with a great deal of Diftinftion during the Courfe of this. War. ' Iu order to render both Port Lou,is and Port L'Oqent more inacceflible for the future, the French have reVolved to ereel feveral new Forts in their Neighbourhood, parti* cularly at Polduc, where our Troops landed,, and alio upon the Point of Quiberon. A private Letter from Madrid, of the 27th ult. N. S, runs {bus :->. 4 We are here in a State: of the greateft 1 Uncertainty and Confuftrjin imaginable. One Day we ',ate affurcd a Peace is as good as concluded With En- gland $ the next, that we are treating with France, and ' her only>-Be it as it will, 'tis certain the People,in ' general are highly diftatisfied ; fcarce a Day pafTes, but � fome Tumult pr Outrage happens.
