The Preparations of War in this Kingdom continue with all Imaginable Diligence and Vigour } and there is a Talk of bringing over hither the Troops that are in Sicily, which fame Advices, however, contradiQ. Leghorn, Sept. 3. Hitherto the Camp continues at Pife, bat perhaps it will not be there long) 'for tis"glven out that a Body of 4600 Imperialifts are marching for the Luheg-ftano, and that they will be joined by the Troops of this Grand Dutchy, in order to attack Sarzana. All the Erig-G&MenofWar, and the King of Sardinia's two Gallies, tfoich were cruizing, have been recalled, and are makmg fail towards Final, in order to fecond the Operations of (be Piedmontcie Army on that Side. Pavia, Sept. 7. f he exa#Difcipline which the Auftrians obferve in the State of Genoa, is fpoken of with much Applaufe: It is faid, however, that Count Brown has demanded Come Millions Contributions of the Senate. We ate affured, that the King of Sardinia will not be contented with the Marquifate of Final, which was ceded to himrby the Treaty of Worms, but that his Majefty; alfo forms Pretentions to Savona, and that Sarzana, with its Diftrifts, will be joined to the Grand Dutchy of Tufcany. Venue, Sept. 10. All the Advices we receive from the State 0f Genoa indicate a fuddonEnd of the War in Italy, and tell us, that the King of Sardinia iitteiffs to Jfcarry it into the Heart of prance. The Marquis John Baptifte Mari, who has been nominated by tlfe'Senate of Genoa to repair to Vienna, and throw the Ioterefts of the Republic at the Feet of her Imperial Majefty, is expected here every Memenr, and Come fay he has already pafs'd by us. We hear, that Count Ifiancani has been removed from Parma to Milan, which is look'duponas a bad Sign, efpecially fince he is ftill kept in Irons. Cbamberry, Sept. 8. There is much Difcoufe here of a( Peace between Spain on one Side, and the King of Sardinia with his Allies on the other. It is alfo fakl, that the Troops which are in this Dutchy, will evacuate it before the 1 cth Inftant. .However that may be, it is certain, that thofe Troops have Orders to form a Camp at Montmdian, aad that ..the.'�000 Swifs, who encamped atAnnecy, are actually upon the March for that Purpofe. Vienna, Sept. to. We are allured, that the Republic of Venice has made very warm Application to the Emprefs, that fte would preferve the Liberty of thegenoefe, and prevent their total' Ruin j and that the latter had requefted of the Aulic Council of theEntpite, the Invtfftittufe of certain Fifes which they ppffefs. There is a general Report, that the Counts Konigfegg *"d Kaunitz iyefe S6minated her Imperial Majefty*s M witters at the Conferences at Breda,' and the Congrefe that may refult from it, but that both having deGred to be excufed, Count d'Uhlefeldt, Chancellor" of the Court, is appointed'for that Purpofe. Hanau, Sept. 17. About iocw of: the Bavarian Troops, which are marching for the Low-Countries, paffed by this City two Days ago, and encamped at Dornigheim, where tney refted Yefterday, and this Day have continued their March. This Day alfo another Column paffed by, which went to take Poffef&jo of the Camp b^upied by the x>rraer. From the Genera/ Quarters of the Aiiietupon the Soar, Sept. 18. Yefterday Morning we made a Motion to draw nearer the Enemy, on which Occasion there was a fmart Skirmifhat Work, a Village on the Left of the River, then in the Hands of a large Body of French under M. Bercbini. To diflodge the Enemy a Detachment was made of the Foot, with 10 or iz Companies of Grenadiers, and fome Piquets of Cavalry. Tho* the French were two againft one, and our Troops bad but two Pieces of Cannon, the former were obliged to retire in great Disorder, and the latter took Poft in the Village. The Center of our Army is over-againft the Village and Callle of Millen, our Right at Work, and the Left reaches to the Saar, near the Village of Bafenge, General Trips is at Pil-fen, with the Light Troops, within Mufket-fliot of the Enemy. This Neighbourhood, occafions frequent Skirmishes, which have hitherto all proved to the Honour and Advantage of our Troops. It is certain, that both Armies will be obliged to decamp in a few Days for Want of Sub-fiftance ; and we cannot yet tell who mnft move firft : But this Motion, by whomfoever made, as it maft be in Sight of the other Army, will be dangerous for that Party, which is obliged to make it, and, if there be the leaft Inclina* tion, may bring on a general Afition. Hitherto we have jPfenty in our Camp, and there is a Report, that our General* have referred to penetrate into Brabant, which we (hall foon fee confirmed or contradicted. Amfterdam, Sept. 21. According to the laft Advices from Venice, the Piedmonteze had got Poffeffion of Savona, and the French and Spaniards had let Fire to every Thing in their Retreat. There were fix Englifh Men of War before the Port of Genoa, and the Auftrian Army are encamped very quietly without the Town. There was a kind of Sedition among the People, which obliged the Senate to make fo eafy a Submiffion to her Imperial Majefty. The Infant Don Philip and the Duke of Modem had but juft Time to get into France thro' the Weftern Riviera, a few Hours more having made fuch a Retreat abfolutely im* practicable. LONDON. There is Advice from the Hague, dated the 23d Inftant, N.S. that the City of Namur furrender'd to the French on the 19th Inftant. The French had brought againft it upwards of 200 Pieces of Battering Cannon, ana feemed to be determin'd not to leave one Stone upon another, if die Garrifon attempted to hold out obftinatcly. Count Co* lyear, the Governor, had leave to retire on Account of his great Age. By Letters of the 8th from Mantua, we hear, that no Advice was come of the Surrender of Gavi, which continues to be batter'd by 16 Pieces of Cannon, and ro Mortars. A great many noble Genoefe are faid to be in the Place, who encourage the Garrifon to make a vigorous Deftnce, and the Commandant is a French Officer, who has engaged in the Genoefe Service. There is not yet any Account, that the Senate of Genoa have made their Submiffion to the King of Sardinia ; but we are only told, that they have put tbemfelves entirely into the Hands of her Imperial Majefty. Several Imperial Generals went to Genoa with the Deputies that were font by Count Botta, and they treat the Genoefe with great Civility. The Enemy were clofely purfoed iq the Flight by the Auftrian Detachments, who pick'd up a great deal of their Equipage and Baggage on the Road. Before the Surrender of Namur, the Garrifon made a .Sally with 800 Men ; but were driven back with great Lou. _ The French Actions are rifen to i960 Livres. The French and Spaniards in their Retreat thro* the State, of Genoa, took no Account of their Baggage, but made the belt of their Way both by Land and Water. Letters from Paris mention, the Surrender of Savona to the Piedmontefc, and fay, that fix Englifh Men of War contributed to the making of this Conquelt. The fame Letters add, that the Infant Don Philip was arrived at Ancibes. Ycfterday Upwards of 50 Soldiers belonging to the Foot Guards inarch'd off the Parade, with their Knapsacks, &c. -for Woolwich, irr order to do Duty there. SeVeral of the Matroffes have been lately draughted from Woolwidh, to go on the intended Expedition. By Letters from Leghorn we have Advice, that the Pearl Privateer, Capt. Campion, was taken fome time ago off the Ifland of Selagoy by two French Men of War, who^ "were cbnvoying Tom* Ships from Marfeilles to the Levant, and is carried into Milo. The Privateer fought for a con-i fideraWe Time, and were at laft taken by a Force that could not be irefifted. We are inform'd, that an Exprefs is arrived froar^tpe Breton ; but the Contents of it is not known. Extraff tf a Letter from Antigua, Jufy 23. * We had in the laft Flag of Truce arrivebVhert from ' the French Islands, 46 Matters t>f Veflels, taken in the ' Space of three Weeks, and carried into Martinieo and ' Guardaloupe.-They have, by all Accounts, about 40 ' Privateers out of thofe Jflands, who come every Day * in fight of this Ifland, - Ac. We are affured, that the St. Domingo Fleet are all arrived at their refpe&ive Ports from the Groyne j where they had put in, �s formerly mention'd. The Providence, Loch, from Hamburgh to Leith, was lately taken hy the French* but raofom'd for 8co 1.

The ChaTlesj, Kelly, from Newfoundland .to Leghorn, was {poke with in Lac. 46. 10. when all were well on O board. We hear, that laft Night there were Letters from Ply- J mouth, with an Account that Admiral Leftockwas fail'd I. from thence, with all the Men of War and Tranfports W under his Command. �-  The Seahorfe, Fowler 1 and Prince Rupert> Spurrill; ^ both from Hudfon's Bay> are arrived in the River, with �3* valuable Cargoes. � Yefterday the Proclamation for a general Thankfgiving ^$"� on Thurfday the 9th of Oftober, for the Suppreffion of **t the Rebellion, was publrckly read by a Herald at the South 1^ Gate of the Royal Exchange. Yefterday the. Right Hon. the Lords Commifiloners of  the Admiralty, were plcas'd to appoint Lieut. Hervey, ^� Son of the Right Hon. the Earl of Briftol, to be Captain ' of the Porcupine Sloop, lately built in the River. And he was fworn in, and received his Commiffion accordingly. This Day the curious fine Monument, which is finifiVd by Mr, Scheemaker, to the Memory of General Monk afterwards created Duke of Albemarle, will be brought to Weftminfter-Abby, in order to be ereded in the South-fide of King Henry the VHth's Chapel. Yefterday the Juftices of the Peace for the City and Li. bertyof Wcftminfter^ met at the Town Ceurt-houfo, adjoining to Weftminfter-hall, when divers Perfons who ftood bound over appeared on their Recognizances^ feveral of whom were difchatg'd, and others continued ; after which the Court adjourned to the 8th Day of O&obef next.

They write from Brecon, that on the 28th nit. ended the Affixes for that County; when four Perfims received Sentence of Death i three for Sheep-fteal-ing, and one for a barbarous Murder and Robbery, committed near Crickhowell. Edinburgh, Sept. Hi Yefterday Francis Anderfon, according to a Sentence of the High Court of Juftkiary, was executed at the Gallowlee betwixt Leith and Edinburgh! and afterwards hung in Chains, for the barbarous and cruel Murder of John Catanoch; the Circumftances of which appear more inhuman from his own Confeftton than from the Proof adduced againft him. Mr, Charles Mait-land of Pitrichie, one of the Sheriff, for this County, waited on by his Fifcal and Clerks, and preceeded by the Sheriff Officers wkh their Battons, attended the Execution, till the whole was over j aid tho' the Speftators were exceeding numerous, never was an Execution oonduded with more Peace and Decency. This Day Andrew Fithie, his Accomplice, by a Sentence of the (aid Court of Jufticiary, is to fuffer the fame Fate at Forfar. By Letters from the North we hear, that Mr. Gairden of Troup, after having been kept Prifoner three Days, by a Parly of armed Men fuppofed to be Rebels, who carried him from his own Houfe, was fet at Liberty Yefterday fe'nnight, upon paying them a confiderabie Sum of Money which according to our beft Information amounts to 143 1. r and that none a� his other Effect haye hitherto been re-aoied. 9 B" ADV E RT IS E M E N TS are uken in tor this Paper, at Lloyd's Cofjbi-Hovsb, "m Lombard-Screetj Gape-Britain for Even ;
