His Majefty's Frigate the Aftraea, from Vera Cruz, is arrived at Bayona in Galicia, with Five Millions of Pieces of Eight Value in Silver and Merchant dize. She left at the Havannah two Enj^ifh Prizes, whofe Cargoes are valued at about 45,000 Pidftres. This Frigate was chafed for three Days by two Englilh Men of War, tu being a good Sailor, made a-Shifc to efcape. Dre/den, Sept. 16. We are affured that Count Kiowfki, Great General of Lithuania, is actually upon the Frontiers of Prufiia with a Body of 30 or 40,000 Poles, in order to invade that Country, as foon as he fliall receive certain Advice that the Pruffians" have begun Hoftilities againft this Electorate. Brujffds, Sept. 23. As the Army of Marfhal de Saxe continues quiet, tho' it has been rejoin'd. by Count Lowen-dahl's Body, it is thought the Enemy's Defign is to eftabliih Magazines, and take up Quarters to confume them : But we doubt here if they will be left in this Tranquillity, be-caufe the Allied Army will foon be ftronger, tbro' the Arrival of the Heffians, and the Garrifon of Ottend, which is expeded from Mons. We learn by Abundance of L�t-ters from Paris, that all the Rejoicings in that Capital are far from alleviating the Miferits cf the People, while the Commerce of the Nation is reduced almoft to nothing. Indeed the Actions of the India Company itill keep up a certain Price ; but that is owing only to the Artifices of the Court EmifT ries, and the advantageous News that is fpread from Time to Time. The laft Difpatches from the Marquis de.Valori have given rife to feveral Conferences. It is faid that the King of Prufiia prefles clofely for the Payment of 1,400,000 Florin', the Arrears of the Subfidies; .which very much embarraffes the French Miniftry, as th� Finances are quite exhaulted: They are alfo pcrplexecTaTrhe repeated Advices they rtceive from Holland, that two or three Couriers pafs every Week between Berlin and London, which makes it believed that his Pruffian Majefty is ready to fall in with the Allies of Warfaw, and to give his C^nfent to a Convention. Placentia, Sept. 9. The Spaniards, having got PofTeffion of the Bridge, fenc an Officer, preceeded by a Drum, to fummon the City to furrender. As they gave in Anfwer a few Mufket-fhot, the Officer retired, returning foon after with a Detachment, of Troops, and making a Shew of forcing the Gate? Juft as the Troops within were putting themfelves in a Djfpofition for a Defence, another Party fcaled the Walls without Obftruclion, and without the Lofs of a fingle Man, and opened the Gates to the Troops without. The Piedmonteze retired with Precipitation info the Caftle, which was in like Manner fumtooned by the Spaniards : But it is faid the Commandant was permitted to fend an Exprefs to the King of Sardinia, to receive his,Or-ders. In the mean time, the Spaniards guard all the Avenues to the Caftle, and have difcharg'd all the Militia that had been brought into the City to guard the Gates. The Spaniards are about 6000 in Number, bfii more are foon expected. We hear, that General Colloredo is on the other Side the Po, with five Batallions and fome Squadrons, in order to obferve the Spaniards, and throw themfelves into Pizzighitone in Cafe of Need ; and that the Spaniards are forming a Cordon on the Side of Lodi, to cut off the Retreat of the Auitrians towards Mantua. There is a Report, that the Infante intends to drown the Neighbourhood of Alexandria with the Waters of the Tanaro, in order to oblige the Piedmonteze Army to decamp. Dre/den, Sept. 1 g. Our Army, which encamps* between Halle and Leipfick, is actually compofed of 30*000" fighting Men, but we do hear that there has been hitherto any Hoilifities on that Side.. . The fame Caution has not been obferved in Lufatia, the Magistrates of Lanben having fent the following Letter to the Court. ' By Order of his Excellency the Count deGofler, Lieu-  tenant-General in the Service of his Pruffiaji Majelty, ' and Commander of a. Detachment of his Troops, Notice ' is ferioufly given to the City and Diftrift of Lanben, that  all Diforder may be prevented, (to have in Readinefs for 1 the Service of tr.e Pruffian Troops that (half arrive there ' Tomorrow, and which will flay there two Days, Yiz. ' the nth and 12th of September, 6000 Rations of Oats,  Hay and Straw/*/- diem, 10,000 Rations of Meat of one ' Pound each, and as many of Bread of two Poinds each; ' alfo zo. Tons of Beer, four Tons of Aqua Vita?, and ' 1200 Truffes of Straw for the Troops which are to en-' camp. Affurance is given at the fame Time, that if ' this be complied with, the Troops fhall obferve^n exact  Difciplihe, and take nothing from any Body  but, in ' Cafe of Difobedierrce, the City fhall be compejl'd by ' Military Execution. Done at the Caftle of Friedland,  Sept. 10, 174;. Sign'd (L.S.) Ferdinand Roder, Aid de Camp to his Excellency the Count de Goffer.., Hanover, Sept. 21. Baron de Jaxheim has given Notice to tlie Miniftry, that he-has received Advice from-Munichj that Orders are actually given for the 6poo Bavarian Troops" to hold themfelves in Readinefs to march upon ihe^ft No-' l'ce ; but nothing is faid of the Route they are to take. Hamburg, Sept. 24. As the Pruffians haye already begun HoftiHti^s-in Lufatia, it is expected the Prince of Ahhalt will foon do the fame in Saxony. The Coart of Drefden neglects nothing on this Occafion to put itfelf in a Pofture of Defence; and an Edict has been publifhedj enjoining all the Inhabitants capable of bearing Arms, to aflemble, in Cafe of ah Invafion, at an appointed Rendezvous, in ordlr to be divided foon into feparate Corps. By this Means the Court will fet on Foot 200,000 Men, exclufive of the Regular Troops, which adtually amount to 70,000. Advices from Berlin abfolutely contradict the Reports of the Negotiation between the Queen of Hungary and the Kingot Proffia. the latter having declared, that he will make neither Peace nor Truce without his Allies. Paris, Sept. 24. The Marquis de Maillebois, Son to the Marfhal of that Name, arrived on the 2 2d from Italy, with the Newsv that the Troops of the Infan;e had made themfelves Matters, with little Refiftance, of the Cities of Placentia and Parma, and that they expected foon to hear of the Surrender of Modena. Private Letters from Italy fay, that the ttort of Exilles, in which was a Garrifon of only 200 Militia, lias been carried by Surprize, and that M. de Lau-trec was gone to form the Siege of Tenethelles. LONDON. They write from Bruffels, that it is iropoffible to defcribe the Defolation fpread over the Country by the Troops under the Count de Clermont. Among other Inftances, they exacted from the City of Soignies 22,000 Florins, before their Departure, over and above the ufual Contributions. They have alfo carried off all the Forrage in thefe Quarters, not leaving the Peafants fufficient to feed their Cattle during the Winter.
