Some Regiments of Imperial Horfe are upon the March for Liguria [tbt State rf Genoa) in order to take the Road of Provence. Many are of Opinion, that the Enterprize againft France will be fupported by an Embarkation of Troops, which fhall land upon the Coaft at the fame Time that the Army advances, and that the Defign of the Auftrian and Piedmontefe Generals are to provide Winter-Quarters for their Troops upon the Territories of France, in cafe the Seafon will not permit them to continue the Operations, in order to make v_onquefts there. According to good Advices, the Pa'ffdge of the Var is defended only by 6 compleat Battalion;, and by the Remnants of M. Maillebois's Army, which are reduced very low, notwithftanding the Recruits drawn from the Militia, which have been fent him from Time to Time. We are allured however, that Troops are fending thither by feveral Ways, in order to defend the Frontiers of Provence, and that Arms have been distributed to the Peafants : But thefe Accounts add, that France having an Invafion to fear in Dauphiny at the fame Time, fhe will be obliged to leave Part of the Succours (he is fending, upon the Frontiers of that Province; aad that the Peafants, knowing the great Superiority of the Imperial and Piedmontefe Army coming into their Country, feem more difpofed to fubmit to the Viftors with a good Grace, than to provoke them by a fruitlefs Refinance. Time will gives us farther Light into thefe Things. In the mean while, it js certain that the French, after having pillaged and ruined Villafraneha and Nice, kave entirely abandon'd ail that they had on this Side the Var, in order to fortify themfelves upon that River as well as they are able. Florence, Off. 15. King Theodore has been for fome Days in this City, without appearing in Public. He comes from Leghorn,-where he has been concealed a whole Year, and 'tis thought he has a Defign to go over into England", fince we are allured pofitively, that the Emprefs will preferye*Q>rfica under the Dominion of the Genoefe, and not deprive that Rejfublic of its Liberty. All the contrary Reports are without Foundation, and the bed Letters from Vienna aiTure, that her Majefty's Intention never was to fubjugate the Genoefe by caufing her Army to march into their Country,. but only to diflodge her Enemies, and open toherfelf a Way.into Provence. All the Auftrian Generals, Officers and Soldiers, difcover the utmoft Ardour for this Expedition. The Republic his obtained farther Time for the Payment of what flill remains of the Contri-. buaqns. Mantua, Off. 2,1. General Count Brown, who arrived hereon the 16th fets out To-morrow, to put himfelfaf the Head of 46,000, Imperialifta and Piedmonteie, who-are to penetrate into Provence, where, we are. affured, the; Emprefs and the King of Sardinia will have 'r 00,000 Men-fey the next Spring. Part of the Infatnry, that are; to 'begin the Enterprize, will embark on the Coaft of Genoa, and land in Provence, aodthe Horfe-will march thro' Piedmont and the County tf Nice'. Dr?fd*�, Off. 26. The Court is expected here fronv vvarfaw in the Month of December next.. The Marquisettes Mars, Ambaffador frani France, hath fent Orders to hire one of the largeft Houfes in this City. Every Thing feems to foreteH that this Minifter will make a very brilliant Embaffy, and, at the fame Time, a very agreeable one to their Majeftjes. M. de Mortevilk, whom the States-General have nominated theirv Refideiu at this Court, arrived here frorri Berlin fix Days ago. Berlin, Off. 29. The Privy-Counfellor Ferber is not the only Perfon who has incurred the King's juft Indignation, by Defigns and Machinations equally notorious and criminal : There have been others, in the fame cafe, conducted to Spandau, and one of them is the Refident of a certain German Court. The Enormity of their Conduct may be guefled at from the Neceffity the King is under of inflicting Death upon them : But never was Bafenefs, and the Abuie of a great Prince's Clemency carried farther than in this Affair, as a little Time will make evident. General Count Bernes arrived here from Vienna the Day before Yefterday, and the fame Day a Secretary of the Ruffian Embaffy pafled thro1 here, in his Way from Franckfort upon the Mayne to Peterfburgh. The Marquis de Valori received lately a Cabinet Courier from his Court, whom he immediately fent forward for-Warfaw. Franckfort, Off. 30.

We learn from Fontainbleau, that the three Ships ef the Duke d'Anville's Squadron, two of which came into Rreft, and the other was obliged to run a ground, efcaped a moil furious Storm, which that Fleet met with on the Coaft of Acadia, juft as it was going to attack Cape Breton. They are much afraid, that the Duked'Anville's own Ship, and three more Men of War, are alfo loft, as well as moft of the Tranfports, of which no Tidings are arrived. We are affured that 11 Battalions and 6i Squadrons of-French are marching from Flanders towards the Rhine and the Mofeile, in order to take Poffeffion of the City of Treves, and fo cut off all Communication with Germany from the Garrifon of Luxemburgh. But fome Advices fay this is only a Pretence, and that the true Defign of the French is to avail themfelves of thejjeafoo, and the Ab-fence of the Hanoverians, in order to make an Invafion into their Electorate at a Time, when it is leaft expected, caufe a Diverfion to the King of Great-Britain's Troops, and give that Monarch a fevere Blow by ravaging his German Dominions.

Count Harrach has already waited on the Principal Members of the Government, and imparted "to them the Difpofitions of the Emprefs Queen with regard to the Conferences at Breda. The Return of the Courier difpatch'd by the Marquis de Puyfieux with the more Impatience, as h;s Anfwer will not only fettle the Time ' of Opening the Conferences, but may even decide their Succefs. The Armiftice will depend upon the greater or leffer Facility with which the Imperial Title is acknowledged. The Earl of Sandwich's Courier is aKb expected, to bring large Explications from the Court of England. From the London Gazette. Stockholm, Off. 10.

The Enemy, fince their repaffing the Var, are faid to point directly towards Toulon.
