By an order Of "the Emperor., ilgtied the a 3d of November lart, ay the regiments di dragoons are to be augmented with a fourth tlivifion, which in all will make 12 Squadrons jnoie. This unexpected order has occafioned jnahy conjectures : Some attribute it to the trou-tlel iri the Low Countries, others interpret it as a Aire proof of a third campaign againft the Turks-; whilft others, in fine, regard it as a mere precaution, whit* ..the prefent State of things re- aaires. As the order* axe -very preffihg, the fo!-iers will be drawn from different regiments, which will afterwards be compleated again by xecraits. They alfo talk of an order fent by tte War Department to all the Governors of the Aufirian Provinces, informing them that they jnuft furniSh 90,000 recruits for the fervke of next year. We" are allured alfo, that the third battalions of forae regiments, which in times of peace confilted but ot 400, and in war time of 600, will now be made Up 1200 men, and to Supply all wants, the extraordinary contribution irnpofed lift year continues to be levied throughput the whole Monarchy.
