General Advertiser (Newspaper) - November 24, 1846, London, Middlesex fv U M B. MONDAY, November 24, 1746. Z)^/, November 22. ESTEJi-DAY after Poft failed his Majeity's Sloop Shark to the Northward. Remain his Maje-ftyMShjps Centaur, Fox, Tavi-ftock, Swan Sloop, and Scipio Firefhip ; and all the Outward-bound. Wind S.W. blows hard. The Prince William, Dobfon, from Santa Cruz, is arrived in the Downs. Since our Iaft arrived the Mail from Holland. lijbon, 0:1. 28. Since the Arrival of Mr. Keene it has fe�n obferved, that M. CaftVes has fent away one of his Domefticks, who is reported to be gone with fome Dif-patches to Cadiz. We hear, thefe Difpatches regard a private Affair of the South-Sea Company, which Mr. Kecne hasf taken in Hand. M. Chavigny, the French Ambaflador, is very attentive to all the Negociations carried on at thf Court, and negkfts nothing that may contribute to the Succefs of the Affairs he is charged with. Madrid, Now. 7. The King has caufed two Remittances ta be made to the Infant Don Philip within a Fortnight pift, confuting each of 600,000 Piaftres. Count Gages 15 expected here within 10 or 12 Days. This Lord, fince be quitted the Command of the Army in Italy, is arrived at Moutpellier, in order to recover his Health, which is �very much decayed. It is faid, the King wants to confult him with regard to the Operations of next Campaign-in Italy, for which we are told 35,000 Spaniards will be rea-dv by the End of March. The Vjfcount Trentes de Li-ms, Ambafiador from the Ring of Portugal, received a Courier laft Week from Lifboh with private, the Contents of which are not pubiilbed. The feme. Courier brought Letters to the Queen, which were delivered into her own Hands, by the Vifcount. The Duke lie Salas Montalegre, late Frirne-Minifter of the King of the Two Sicilies, acquires daily more Credit at Court, and there is a great Probability that he will foon be employed ia the fame his Catholic Majefty. Gtnoa, Nov. 8. The Marquis de Botta has lately figni-�ed to the-, Government, chat if they delay'd paying �im the Remainder of the Contributions, he would fsnd into the City the T?pops that may be left in this Neighbour,, hood, after all thole intended for Provence have marched. The Dread of being obliged to find Winter-Quarters for 10 Battalions, and expofed to all the Inconveniencies that would result from i', h:is determined the Senate to furnifh, in two dtfterent Payments, the Sum of 200,000 Croifades orGenouins, whico U ail the Money now left in the Bank of St. George. The Autlrian Troops continue to exaft Contributions of Provjiions and Forage from the feveral Communities along the L'oaft, who are the lefs able to fupply them as they have been already exhaulted by the Faffige of the Army of the Three Crowns. Befides this, they demand fuch a Quantity of Utenfils, as very much encreafes our Misfortur.e: So that the Confufion of this State is fo far from diminifhing, that it ftill augments. The Common People, who did -not forefee the fatal Situation they are in, difcover fuch Signs of Difcontent as mew1 they are not averfe to a Revolt : Which makes us fear that Matters will^omeatlatr to yet greater Extremities. Hanover, Nov. .22. The King of Great-Britain our Elettor, has granted? Perifions to the Widows of ail thofe who were killed in the Action near Liege, or who are fince dead of their Wounds.

The States of Hungary have agiin offer'd the ^mpr*&-Qween .to make their ialt Efforts, tea to facriiict wry Thing for the Defence of hqr Domi-ni0Ds, if they ftouM b�; attached >gain. They write jjom VVarfiv,. that the Dyet feparated on the 14th, the i>uncio% who had feparated from the Senate, not bein PTuaded to rejoin it, tbo* theMarfhal �f their Bpttfeh* all the Mean* imaginable to induce them to it.

Bel'e-ifle. We hear, the Enemy increase every Day, and that Reinforcements alfo arrive daily in our Army, which h;is been joined by 2500 Provincial Voluntiers. By thefe Means we fxpeft foon to be able to oppofe the Enemy7 without the Atuitance of the Spaniards, who have qu tied the Caule, 6 Battalions being embarked for Naples, and the Rell upoa-the Point of retiring into Savoy. T-hey are bufy at Marfeilles, and all the neighbouring Maritime Places, to put thcmfelvcs in a State of Defence to keep off the Englifh Men of War, from which a Defcent, or fome other Jjiverfion, is daily expected.
