According to the Letters from .Nice, the Defence made by the Caftle of Ventimiglia was one of the braveit that has been known, equally honourable to the Swifs Troops who made it, and M. Dieftenthal-ler, who commanded them. This Officer had only 300 Men, and he held out till 120 of them were either killed or wounded. A Week before he hung out the White-Flag all the Infide of the Place was fo ruined by the Bombs of the Befiegers, that there was no Place wherein a Man could fhelter himfelf. After feveral Attacks, and when there appeared no Poffibility of holding out longer, the Breach being very broad, and the Garrifon having no Ball left, he caufed 600 of thofe which the Befiegers had thrown in upon him to be dag out of the Earth, and difcharged tack upon them. At laft, however, he was oblig'd to fur-render Prifoner of War, with all his Garrifon. Being at the fame Time iick, he has had his Liberty given him upon his Parole. From the London Gazette. Nice, Nov. 11. On the 4th Inftant, in the Evening, the Spanifh Colonel Don Lopez de Mendieta, who commanded the Caftle of Villa Francha, feeing we made very great Progrefs by the Bnfknefs of our Fire, and particularly by the Bombs, and perceiving another Battery to be preparing, thought fit to capitulate. Accordingly a Sett of Articles were drawn up and fent bim, on the King of Sardinia's Part, and were accepted and figned by both Parties before Midnight. In Confequence thereof, one of the Gates was immediately confignjd to the Sardinian Grenadiers, and the Place itfelf entirely evacuated by tha Enemy the next Morning. The Garrifon confifted of 270 Spaniards and 218 Frenchmen, who all, both Soldiers and Officers, have engaged by the Capitulation, and their Parole, not to ferve againft the King of Sardinia or his Allies, for the Term of 18 Months, and were, a Day or two after, tranf-ported by Sea to AntiSe?. By the Reduction of Villa Francha, an excellent Port is opened to his Britannic Majefty's Ships ; and accordingly Commodore Hughes arrived there the Night before lait with the Efiex, Bedford, and Terrible Sloop, together with the whole Convoy of Artillery, Warlike Stores, and the Military Cheft, for the Imperial Army. The Nonfuch and Antepole, which have been left at Vado, with a Convoy for the King 0-Sardinia, are expefted to arrive every Hour. At the fame Time Commodore Hughes arrived at Villa Francha, his Britannick Majefty's Ship the Chatham, which had been cruizing for feveral Days off Cape Garoupe, was towed into Port quite difabled, having lofl her Main-maft, and near founder'd at Sea. The Imperial Infantry continue to arrive daily, and finee the 4th Inilant the Regiments of Roth, DaunandStaremberg have joined us j two more are Cxpefted by the 14th or 16th, which will complete the" Body of Infantry at firft defigned for this Expedition ; but it is thought the Marqub de fiotta will add fome more Battalions and another Regiment of Dragoons. The Head of the Imperial Cavalry was to be on this Side Coni on the 13th, and will move forward as foon as the Infantry have all pafted the Var^ and we fhall probably, in a Day or two, pufh forward a Bddy to the other Side, and eftablifh our Bridge upon that River, for which every Tb'mg isteady. There is r�� Reafon to apprehend- any Oppofttioij on the Partsf the Eiwmy, as they have broken op the Garftp they had on the tftfter Side within theft two or three Days', and, by our Intelligence, are withdrawing farther into the Country, in two feporaU Bodie?, Part toward Antibes and Past toward Vence. The Infant Don Philip is already re-�ov�d to Aries, very msch indifpofcd with a Tertian Ague ; and by all the Accounts we receive, the're is grda*r Reafon te believe the Spaniards will by no Means concur in the Defence of Provence, but will, upon our Approach, ' haften to join their Cavalry, which is all but two Regiments arrived in Savoy. We had News three Day6 ago, that General Bwjwn had of a fadden been taken violently ill at Genoa, that he could not poffibly attend the Command of the Army ; but by fubfequent Letters from the Imperial Quarters at San-Pieue d'Areria, we are affined, thathe was 10 far recovered, that he would fet out for Nice as this Day or To-inQrrow on board his Brjtannick Majefty's Ship $he Leverpool, which has been attending him at Genoa, .andis expected here Gn Sunday or Monday, when it is thought every Thing will be fettled ; and as foon as that is done, the King dF Sardinia will leave the Whole under his Command/and return to Turin, in the mean while the Sardinian Battalions, which are not defigned for Provence, are marching back to Savona^ in order to be-fiege the Caftle In Fdrra. All (he Prpearations for| this Operation are fo far advancedj that as foon as the Troops ordered thither are arrived, which will be about the 24TK Inftant, the Trenches will be opened, and the Work tarried on with the utrnoft Vigour and Diligence. We juft now hear, that the French and Spaniards are embarking all the" Maga2ines they had at Antibes, and moil Part of the Spanifh Troops, have likewife been embarked fome Nights ago ; but it is riot faid whether for Spain or Naples. Hague, Npv. 29, N.S. To-morrow the States of Holland open their Affembly. By our Advices from Paris, the late Report of the PafTage of the Var was either premature, or at moft only true of t fome advanced Detachments. The fame Advices mention, that the Spanifh Forces were in march towards Aix, at which Place were the Infant Don Philip and the Duke of Modena : That upon the 16th the Head Quarters of the French were at Grace : That the Pavements at Antibes, Toulon, and Marfeilles, were ordered to be taken up ; and that the French Troops "defigned for Provence were embarked at Chalons upon the Saone as faft as they arrived. Admiralty-Office, Nov. 24. Captain Denis, Commander of his Majefty's Ship the Windier, being on a Cmiibc,-on the Morning of the g6th of laft Month law a Sail, to which he gave Chace, and by three in the Afternoon came up with her: She proved to be an Englifh Merchant Ship called the Trere, laden with Sugar from Barbadoes, which had been taken by a French Privateer of 18 Guns and 200 Men, called the Bafques, belonging to Bayonne. The next Morning, at 9 o'Clock, he faw two Sail to the Northward, to which he immediately gave Chace, and next Morning fell in with the Leopard Privateer, of 22 Guns (Nine Pounders) and 24 Swivels, arid fitted out firit with 367 Men, belonging to Bayonne, with an Englifh Merchant Ship in Company* He foon came up with the Merchant Ship, which he found to be the Chefter, from St. Kitts, and took Poffeffion of her. He then chaced the Leopard, and took her about 4 o'Clock in the Afternoon, and has brought her with him into Kinfale. Captain Webb, of his Majefty's Ship the Surprize, on the 19th Iflftant, being at an Anchor eff of Newhawen, difcover'd two French Privateers endeavouring to intercept three Englifh Merchant Ships, fleering to the Eaftward ; upoh which he immediately flipped his Cable, and gave Chace, and after three Hours Purfuit, he came up with and took one of them : She is called the Sandark, Captain Nicholas BachilieH, .belonging to Calais, of 41 Men, and eight Guns. Capuin Webb has brdbght her with him into the Downs. LONDON. They write from Vienna, that there is a Talk there of a new Promotion of Knights of the Golden Fleece, and that the States of Hungary had refoived to buy the fine Palace of the late Prince Eugene for the Refidence of their Chancellor, and the Seat of the Officers belonging to- him. They appear very certain at the fame Court, that the Ruffian Trotjps, which are kept in Readihefs upon the Frontiers of Poknd and Lithuania, will mareh for the Service df the Courts of Vienna and London, as foon as they are demanded by the Baron de Breitktch and the Earl of Hyndfordj which will be doi�e, if the French Court continues difpofed to perpetuate theWar Which he has kiridled in almoft every Part of Europe. It is thought, that the Marriage of the Dauphin with a Princefs of Saxony will accelerate theConclufion of a Peace with Spain, and that with a View thereto tne King of Sardinia will demand the Princefs Maria-Antonietta, who has been rejected at Verfailles, for his Son the Duke of Savoy, which, 'tis not doubted, will be granted. Letters frotn (he Ha.gue take Notice of the great Satis faction there conceived at his Britannick Majefty's calling the Eafl of Chefteffield to the Miniftry, that Nobleman th eing equally a Friend to the RepuWick, arid beloved by He Members of it. The Inhabitants of Moravia are fo alarmed at the Motion of the Pruffian and SaxonTrosps in SHtfia and Up^jtsr L*fetiH,"-TtrarThey are pTe^rmg^owitlraraw" wSKTheif belt Effects ; being of Opinion, that if any new Attempt be made upon the Dominions of her Irripcrial and Regal Ma-jefty, it will be bX marching direftly through that Province, where they are fortifying all the dererifible "Places, and falling either upon Aultna or Hungary. In the mean Time, the Court of Vienna feenis to be very little apprehenfive, relying upon the Prom:fe of the Ruftiin Emprefs, and the Fidelity of the Hungarians. It having been publilhed in the German Gazette of Al-tena, and from thence taken into bther Languages, tha,t the Privy-CounfeUor Hund de Logerhoufc was ohe p�,thofe whom the King of Pruffia had caufed to be conducted to the whole Story is falfe and groundWs, promifinga Reward of a Hundred Crowns to any one who Will difcover the Author of this Calumny.-By the faid.
