They write from Milan, that the Batteries began to play the 15th of lalt Month, N.S. up;n the Cit del of Torto-na, and that the Attacks are carried on at the fame -Places as they were in the Month of February, 1734, when Mar-fhal Maillebois had the Direction of the Siege. The King of Sardinia's Army was ilill in the fame Pofuion between the Po aBd the Tanaro, and Part of the Auftrian Army lay behind the Po, where it was thought both would remain until they fee the Iffue of the Siege of Tortona. They tell us from Genoa, thst the Senate having made Reprelentations to his Majefly concerning the late Conduct of fome of our Commodores and Captains ; they have received for Anfwer, c That what thofe Officers had already done, was in Purfuance of their Inftruclions ; that their � future Conduct would likewife be agreeable to their Or-'* ders ; and therefore, that it. would be needlefs to make ' any more Complaints about this Matter. ExtraS of a Letter from Drefden, Auguft 30, N.S. ' The Pruffians have already began Hoftilities in this ' Electorate At a Place called'Coroett they carried off a. ' Detachment of Uhlans, and they have likewife feized di- * vers Boats on the Oder. The King has declared to the ' Miniliers of his Aliie?, that notwithstanding the Invafion * which hisJDominions feemed to be threatened with by ' the Pruffians, his Majciiy will remain firm in his Engage - * merit?, not doubting but that the Allied Powers will * fpeedily furnifh him the Succours fh'pulated by the Treaty * of V> arfaw. The Queen of Hungary's Miniller has de-' clared to the King that fhe will fend to his iVhijelty's Aflif-' tance, not only a Body of Troops, but even her whole * Army if Occafion requires, &c.  The Duke of Saxe Weiffenfels arrived here from Bo- * hernia the 27th Inftant ; and we are allured, that he will ' be quickly followed by a Body of 18000 Auttrian and * Saxon Troops. The King of Pruifia has de;ached feve-' ral Corps from his Army ; in order to act with more * Vigour againfl Saxony. 'Yeiterday we received Advice, that the Pruffian Army in * Bohemia has retired, and palled the Elb, after fetting ' Fire to their Camp. A Piece is jutt published, vindicating ' the Behaviour of the Saxon Troops againft the Accufa- * tions contained in the King of Pruffia's Manifefto. Letters from Duffeldorp of the 4th Inftant, N.S. advife, that the Prince of Conti expected in a few Days a Reinforcement of 26 Squadrons, which, they affure us, are followed by a greater Number of Troops, and that his Serene Highnefs would afterwards pafs the Rhine. Extract of a Letter from Francfort, Sept. 2, N.S. ' The fifth Preliminary Conferences for the Election of * an Emperor, was held the 30th of lalt Month : Yefter- * day the 6th Conference wasfheld, and this Day the 7th. � The Palatine and Brandenbourg Miniflers aflifted at thefe � three Conferences, but it was only to raife Objections and � enter Protelts againft theDeliberations, and they withdrew � every Time earlier than the other Minifters. The Elector � of Mentz arrived here the lalt Day of Auguft, and made � his pablick Entry with the ufual Solemnity : His Electo- * ral Highnefs has refolved to aflift in Perfon at the next ' Conference, in order to accelerate the Bufinefs of the ' Eiedlion.  The Army of the Allies is ftill in the fame Pofition * near the Neckar ; but we hear that it is preparing for a � March, and fome fay it will come again into our � Neighbourhood. The Corps under General Sommer- * feldt, which is faid to be near 10,000 ftrong, encamps in ' the Neighbourhood cf Biberich and Mufbach, where a ' a Bridge and fome Intrenchmetns are making.  We have Advice, that the Pruffians have taksn the * Town of Naumbourg, Capital of the Dutchy of that � Nam?, fituated on the Sala, between-Jena and Merfe-' bourg, and that they were marching towards Leipfick, in 4 order to make themfelves Mailers or that City likewife. According to Advices from Bruflels, the Corps under the  Count de Uermont-Gallerande, received on the 30th of Auguft, N.S. a Reinforcement of 6o�o Men, and two I>jys after this General began his March towards Aeth ; fiiice which a Body of 4000 Men arrived at Ninove with .fome .Battering Cannon ; from all which Ctrcumflances-it is guefled, that the Enemy intend to befiegc Aeth ; and fome fay Marfhal Saxe is to command there in Perfon, while a large Body of Troops marches away to the Rhine, in order to traverfe the Election of the Grand Duke, pur-fuant to the Advice which it's pretended Marihal Belleifle has given the French King. Extrail of a Lttter from Leipfick, Sept.z, N.S. ' By a Courier, jaft arrived, we hear, that the Pruffian ' Army, which confifts of between 25 and 27,000 Men, � was ftill polled near Halle on the Territory of Branden-' bourg ; but as its Motions (hews that it has a Defign on  the Biftiopricks of Merfebourg, Naumbourg, and Zeits, � and not on this City, Count Rutowflcy, who commands ' our Army, which confifts of 26,000 Men, decamped ' this Morning from Pfaffendorf in this Neighbourhood, in ' order to go and meet the Pruffians. The Reinforcement ' coming from Bohemia is already arrived on the Frontiers ' of this Electorate, and makes long Marches to join the ' Atmy.' Letters from Paris of the 3d of September, N.S. fay, that they expect their King on the 7th. They alfo tell us, that two Ships lately failed from Brefl, deeply laden with Arms and Ammunition, for the Pretender's Party In Scotland, as it was given out in that City, They write from Vienna of the 21ft of Auguft, N.S. that the Court received a Courier a few Days before from M, Penckler, the Queen's Minuter at Conitantinople, with Difpatches importing, That whatever Reports may be fpread in other Countries concerning the Difpofition6 of the Porte ; it may be depended upon that the Grand Signor is far from being in a Condition to concern himfelfwith the Affairs of Eurcpe: That the War between him and Shah Nadir was carried on with more Fury than ever: That new Levies are making in the Turkifh Piovinces, to reinforce their Army on the Side of Peiiia ; and that the Reports of Troubles in Egypt begin to revive at Confianti-nople, Shsh Nadir's fc.mifla.ries being exceeding induftrious in keeping up a feditious Spirit among the Egyptians. Letters from Hanover inform us, that the Moment they received the News of the Prince cf Anhalt-Deffau's March from Magdebourgh, Orders were iMued for iuch Hanoverian Regiments as were ftill in the Electorate, to" march forthwith towards Hartzegerode and Gottinguen, and take Poft on the Frontiers of T huringia. Hagut, Sept.*?, N.S. This Day their High Mighti-neffes, upon his Britar.n'ck Majefty's Miniftcr's Application to them for the actual March and Embarkation of the SixThoufand Men of Dutch Troops designed for Scotland, immediately granted his,P?mand and diipatched Orders to the refpeitive JS^rneuta ^Jinpofing th.e faid Body, to repair with all r ->'e Sp'iec* to Wiljenfftad, where'i'ranf-ports are ready to'receive ih : . rfhey are to-be commanded by Count Maurice: of x'aF � ; and to embark by fingle Regiments as fall as they.*" there, without waiting the one for the other. Ye ft* 1 ~ountPalavicini,the Genoefe Minifter, arrived here. On Saturday Morning laft about 4 o'CJock his Majefly landed at Margate, and at One in the Afternoon pafs'd through the City, amidlf. the repeated Acclamations of his People, who at Night alfo fignified their Joy by Bonefires and Illuminations in different Parts of the Town. Letters from the Hague fay, that the Abbe de la Ville has of late loft much of his Complaifance, and that he has ventured to tell fome of the principal Members of the Government, that hitherto they had received only Marks of his Maftei's Friendfhip, but that if they did not ufe their utmoft Endeavours to bring about a Peace, it was not im-poffible that they nvght feel the Weight of his Power. By the Jateft Accounts from Drefden it dees not appear that the Pruffians have committed any Hoftilities in Saxony. And on Saturday Night it was currently reported, that his Pruffian Majefty haJ, or would immediately come into the Grand Alliance :-Which we wifti may prove true. There is Advice by the Holland Mail, that a French India Ship is actually put into Cape Breton, where fhe was made a Prize. It is alio faid that fome ether French India Ships were daily expected to arrive there. We have an Account that the Privateer Brigantine, of Bofton, has taken fifteen Leagues to the IZa.tward of Cape Breton, a very rich French Ship from Maninico. She had onboard 100 Hoglheads of Rum, with MelalTes, Cafh, Cocoa, Indigo, and dry Goods. The Mailer jnform'd Capt. Fletcher, that four Ships, under the Care of a Brigantine, were to fail from Martinico for Louifbaurg four Days after him, whereupon feveral Privateers failed to intercept them. The Prince Edward Man of War, of 40 Guns, was not launch'd on Saturday laft ; but will be launch'd this Day at 3 o'Clock. On Friday laft there was a general Proof of Cannon, Mortars, Sec. at Woolwich, at which were prefent the Principal Officers of his Majefty's Ordnance ; when feveral of them were put on board, for the Ufe of the Fleet under the Command of Admiral Vernon. Jt is ftill faid, that the Scheme of finking fome Ships at the Mouth of the Harbour of Dunkirk will be executed, under the Direction of Admiral Vernon, for which Purpofe the Ships bought by the Government ate ordered immediately loaded with Chalk, Lime-ftone, Sec. '.' It is at prefent reported by many that the Rebels in Sect-land amount to at leaft 7000 Men, whilft others -affirm that their Number is inconfiderable, and muft immediately be difperfed.-The Poft from Scotland this Day will probably bring fome certain Advices from thence. Laft Week died at the Hague, on his Journey to England, Captain Hughes, of Bligh's Regiment; he was an old and brave Officer, having been in feveral Campaigns under the late Duke of Marlborough. A few Days fince died of the Small Pox at Finchinfield in Effex, Thomas Walford, Efq; only Son and Heir of the late Thomas Wa-lfbrd, Efq; of Halftead-Hall, one of h\s Majefty's Juftices of the Peace for the faid County ; a mgft promifing young Gentleman, whofe Death is greatly lamented.
