' The Campaign is over both in Saxony and Bohemia ; ' it is not however certain, but the Auftnans and Saxons t ' may attempt fomething in the Winter againft the King ' of PrufuVs Dominions in Germany, after the 1 2,000 �rj ' Men that has been detachei from the Army on the q ' Rhine arrive in Saxony.

' Montferrat, where there is no tenable City, as well as ' the Milaneze, where there is only Pizzighitone that can ' make any Refiuance. ' It mall be allowed that the French and Spanifh Ge-' nerals, by feigning to march towards Milan, and there -' by deceiving Count Schulemburg, performed a mafterly ' Stratagem, fince the Succefs of the late Action may be ' attributed it.' Yefterday Morning about 3 o'Clock her Royal Highnefs the Princefs of Wales was happily delivered of a Prince at Leicefter Houfe; on which Account the Guns were fired in the Park, and at the Tower.

Fortune. On Saturday the 19th Inftant, at 10 o'Clock in the Morning died at the Deanery Houfe of St. Patrick's Church in Dublin, the Rev. Dr. Jonathan Swift; of whom it would be weak to attempt a Character. On Saturday laft when the Train'd Bands were paffing in review before his Majefty, a Fellow was taken up for difperfing 1 reafonable Papers amongtt the Crowd in St. James's Park. Yefterday in the Afternoon, juft as the Minifter had got into the Pulpit at St. Luke's Church, a Fellow cried out aloud Fire and Flames, two or three Times, which fo much alarm'd the Congregation, that they ran out of the Church in the greateft Confternation ; but the Villain was immediately feiz'd, and is this Morning to be examined by the Bench of Juftices. A Privateer of 18 Carriage Guns is taken by the French, and carried into St. Maloes. On Saturday laft died at Stepney-Churchill, Efq; a.

A Party of them was lately at Douglas, where they got fome fmall Pieces of Cannon, and 30 Stand of Arms.

' During their Sitting they examin'd only four Wit-e neffes in behalf of the Prifoner, who depofed directly ' contrary to the Evidence in behalf the Crown.' To ^Merchants and others, who are raifing a Military Force, to prote8 the Nation againji Popery and Slavery. Virtus unita fortior- IT is feafonable to confider, how fuddenly 20 or 30,000 ^ Troops or more may be raifed in Scotland among the o rebellious and difaffected Clans and others, left we fhould co unhappily deceive ourfelves, by looking upon the rebel- p* lious, military Force, now railed there, in tooidw and ^ contemptible a Light; and therefore not take the moft fpeedy and vigorous Meafures effectually to reinforce the Royal Army to quell and defeat them, without long experiencing the Calamities of a Civil War. Such who are well acquainted with the North of Scotland, well know how numerous the Superiors and Chieftains of Clans are, and what great Numbers of Vaffals, Tenantst Dependants and Followers they can immediately raife in the North and in the Highlands. In Charles II.'s Time, when Popery and Slavery were intended for us, ail Army of upwards of 12,000 High' landers was raifed in a few Weeks, and brought down upon the Wejlof Scotland, which was moft averfe to fuch a Defign, and therefore were ravaged with as much Barbarity as if it had been in an Enemy's Country ; And this without the leaft Knowledge in South-Britain.
