Arrived the Frederick, Craven, from London to Corkj Juffrow, Evey, from Rotterdam, and is fmce failed for Penzance ; the Concordia, Torfon, for Gottenburgh ; and King George Packet, from Lifbon. Covjes, Sept. zj. Came in Elizabeth, Pitman, from London; Juffrow Jshanoa Therefa, from Amfterdam, for Cork; and Triende, Calamer, from Chriftiana. The Only Brother, Macarthy, from Oporto, is arrived at Southampton. The Elizabeth, Lydfone, from Guernfey, at Dartmouth. The Nefbit, Hal/, from Antigua, at Dublin. The Marlborough, Robinfon, from Jamaica ; and the Molly [and Peggy, Howffon, froia North Carolina, off Dover. The Crawford, Harrifon, from Chefter, off Dover. The Pretty Betfey, White, from London ; and Fanny, Connell, from St. Kitts, at Cork. The Tyrrell, Collinghood, from Antigua, is arrived at Baltimore ; who was chas'd in there by a French Privateer. Gixoa, Sept. 7. The Senate of Genoa have fent Orders to the Governor of the Citadel of Savona tofurrender it to the King of Sardinia j but it is faid to be on certain Conditions which are not agreeable to that Prince. We have found in Genoa a great Number of French ' and Spanifh Officers, befides above 1000 Sick, who are ' all Prifoners of War. We have alfo taken fome Cannon, and a great many Bombs and Balls, independant of the Artillery and Ammunition which belong'd before to ' the Republic. The Deferters are come back of their  own Accord, and Abundance of Men befides come to us ' voluntarily from all Parts, who defire to enter into the Service of the Emprefs. By thefe Means we fill up the 1 Vacancies in the Army, and as there are already 14,000 1 Recruits upon the Road, we expeft that all the Regi- * ments will be complete by the Time that the Operations will be renew'd. A great many thoufand Sets of Uni- ' forms and complete Cloathing have been found here, and ' the Artillery of Gavi amounted to 4 Mortars and 50 Pieces of Cannon. The Inventory of'what is in the ' City h not yet finifh'd : But the Number of Guns is pro-' digious, and the Quantity of Ammunition and the Ma-1 gazines are is Proportion. ' A Million of Genouins were paid on the 8th Inftant, 1 being the Proportion of what the Vanquifhed were to pay ' to the Viclors. The Inhabitants of Genoa are quite ig-' norantof their future Fate, nothing having been commu-' nicated to them by the Senate, who are afraid that the ' Imperial Court will add fomething elfe in favour of the ' King of Sardinia. The Doge is ill ; and, if it be only ' an affefted Sicknefs, it will furprize No-body, and the 1 Caufe of itmuft be allow'd to be very real and ferious.' War/aw, Sept. 18. The King and Queen are happily arirved here, and have taken up their Refidence at the Summer-Palace, the Cattle not being habitable for Want of Repairs. In a good many Diftrids the Dyetines have broke up without coming to any Refolutions : But having petitioned that frefh Affemblies might be held, his Majefty did not think proper to agree to it.-The fewer Nuncios there are at a General Dyet, the lefs Danger there is of its kingdifiblved without EiFeft. The Opening of the pre-fcnt is fixed to the third of next Month. LONDON. Advices from Marfeilles confirm thofe from Antifees, that the Troops of the three Crowns had loft a great many Men in their Retreat by the Englifh Men of War and Pied-j&onteze, who kept flanking them, the former from the and the latter from the Mountains which bound the Riviera. They write from Vienna, that the Court expefls with impatience to hear, that the Provifional Congrefs at Breda 15 epened. If the firft Conferences give Room to hope for 1 happy Succefs in what may follow, the Emprefs will fend either Baron Palm, her Minifter at the Dyet of Ratifbon This Minifter has heretofore fhewn his Talents at the Court of Great-Britain, as well as in other Commiffions he has been entrufted. As the Defign of the Emprefs however is, that the Projedted Operations mould have their Effett, in order to give the more Weight to the general Negociations, the Anfwer of the King of Sardinia, upon the Plan that has been propos'd to him concerning a Diverfion in Dau-phiny, is very much defired. This Plan has been alfo communicated to Sir Thomas Robinfon. Strift Orders have been fent into Italy, that the moft exait Difcipline fhould be obferved in the Territories of the Republic of Genoa. Tho' the French talk much of a Second Marriage of the Dauphin, the Court has not yet declared the Name of the Princefs whom he is to marry, and only gives out that the intended Alliance will contribute much to the Succefs of Affairs in general.
