The Preparations for coruinuing the War have not yet feem'd to flacken in France, but great Expectations are form'd from Mr. Walpale's Journey thither., The Ceremony of ftrcwing Holy Water upon nine Pair of Colours belonging to the French Guards, was perform'd tall Week in the Metropolitan Church of Paris with great Solemnity, the Archbifhop himfelf giving the Benediction. The little Protection this Ceremony gave the French Enfigns in the laft War, one would think muft have put an End to d vain a Superstition : Holy Water might defend them from the D-I, but not from a Duke of Marlborough. An AfEur of fbme Humour has faappcn'd at Paris: Mr. Napali, a famous Banker, marry'd a buxom Wife, but soon Eew tired of his Bargain, and neglected Conjugal Rites. ' The idy never doubted of her Right to do hertcli Juflice, and fupply'd the absent Spoufe with an amorous Lover� but the unreaumable Hulband, who never lay at Home a-Nighu, came in (0 early in she Morning, that her Gallant was-perpetually in Danger, fo that (be thought proper to apply to Parliament to have a feparate Houfe ; and in Hopes to make all fure, Ihe got Monficur charg'd with a Rape, and clapp'd in Prifon : But the Affair being found out, a fad Cataftrophe en-fues, her Ladyfhip is drder'd to Penance in a Convent for a Twelve-month, and Mortification em after, ~by being oblig'd to return home to her Hulband. ^ We hear that the Bat Comp*g*o*3 at Paris are raifiog a Sum by Subfeription, for letting up a Sutue ef his present moft Chriitian Majefty, more Magnificent than that of Lewis Le Grand, on Occafion of an Edict he has lately ilTued, to oblige Vintners to make Ufe of fuch Bottlra only as hold full Mca-fttre,-under a Penalty of 200 Livres for every Drop of Wine that is wanting. On Tucfthy Morning about 7 o'clock, the Darby, Capt.

We hear that a Scheme will be propss'd by Sir Charles Wager, for railing a fufficient Sum by Lottery to finUb the new I L^jTHiogsor Grtrnwich-Hofpital. The luccefitul Progrefe of the Colony of Georgia, and the great Advantages likely to accrue from the�purfuing that Method of cltabbiliing regular Colonics, hath engag'd the Parliament to grant 260001. for this Year's Charges of fupporting and incicaung that Colony, whereby the adjoining Colonics are eniiuly defended.
