According to (omt Advices from Breda, there are favourable Hopes with regard to the Effects of the approaching Conferences; which occafioned the Penfionary Qilles to out again, in order to be prefimrat them.

From the Camp at Mentors, Off-. -1-4. N.S. Since the 6th-Inftant-, N.S. we-have had-nothing very material here in Point of Military Occurrences.: The. Evacuation of the Town of ,Ventimi^iia by the Enemy was like to prove of little Service to us, as our nvarchipg forw.ajd (eemed to be equally obftruaed by their leaving 300 Men in the Caftle^ under the Command of a brave, and relblu.te Swifs Officer, who woutd not hear of any Proportions for the Surren-dxing of it,. King of Sardinia, and the Generals under him, turned thyr.Thougbts to the finding out fqme other Road by the Mountains^ and rendering it practicable by Pioneers; and tho1 the Difficulties fcemed almoft infuperable, it was at latt compaffed, and the Army fet forwards on Monday the 10th Inftant to this Place in two Marches 1 but thq' we avoided the Cannon, of the Caftle, we had much to fuffer from the Badnefs of the Road, infomuch that the King cf Sardinia and the Duke of Savoy themfelves were forced to. go mod of the Way on Foot, and fe-veraj, of our Horfes and Mules fell down the Prtcipices. tJoqn the Army's earning here, we were informed the Enemy was ppf&fled of all the effential Pods that lay between this Place and Nice, and the Means of forcing them out of the fame, and opening the' Way to the Var were immediately taken into Confhieration: Befides the two Bodies under Marquis Bajbain, and Brigadier Martini (the laft of which was reinforced with feveral Companies of Grenadiers,, chofen Militia and Independent Co.m-paxties), which were di(pqfed, of in the Mountains on the Flank of the Enemy,. General Gorani was ordered to march wkh ten Battalions more, to attack them if pof-fible, on another S^de : We heard Yeilerday Evening that he ha.d ajeeady driven them out of one eflentH Pott and fecuied it, as aifq that he was preparing to attack them again.this Morning,. By an Officer who arrived Yefterday from the Marquis ele- Botta, we underftand, that General Brown had begun his March with a, large, Detachment from'the Auftrian 4r" my n.eaj Genoa, tp join us. We have this Morning had an Account, that there were Yeilerday Afternoon, and till late in the Night, feveral fharp Engagements on the Moun. tains that command the Pod of la Turbie, between the Body of our Troops UDder General Gorani, and the French and Spaniards there : Some Men have been loll on both Sides, tho' more on the Enemy's than ours, but General (Gorani himfelf has been killed on the Spot. However our People fucceeded at laft in forcing and pof&fHng themfelves of all the Pofts that command La Turbie, except one little Hillock, which Count d'Antremont, a Brigadier in the King of Sardinia's Service, on whom the Command of that Body is now devolved, propafed to attack this Morning, if the Enemy did not abandon it in tbe Night; which their Deferters, who are juft now come jn, afliireus, they have done. If this laft Circamftance is confirmed, put March to Nice can nowraest bat with very little Opposition, andj we think* will be immediately undertaken. P.S. Two Officers difpatch'd by Count d'Antremont have juft now brought the King of Sardinia an Account, that the Enemy had'abandoned La Turbie in the Night. Munich, Oil. 20, N-S. Letters of the 7th Inftant from the King of Sardinia's Head Quarters at Bordighera in-form uv that hia Sardinian Majefty, after having-driven the French and Spaniards from their Pofts upon the ills, with very little Lofs on his Part, had given Orders for making a new Road over a Mountain which leads to the CaiUe of Ventimiglia, in order to attack-it, which, it is thought, would give the Enemy Time te retire: And they write from Nice under the fame Date, that it was thought that half the Spanifh Cavalry would march to Catalonia, and the reft renwrn in bafroj.

Some Letters mention, that after haying landed the Troops, the Engliih Squadron was failed in older to lay Siege to Beireifle. ft was added, that the Englifh had not committed any Outrages^ but that the AlarrA arripngft the Merchants was renewed, a.nd that the Duke de Penthievres was upon the Point of letting out for Brirai-ny; the Marfhal la Fane was already gone thither, toge> ther with Meff.
