' The Slownefs of the Englifh to quit their Camp near * Hanau, is attributed to the King of Great-Britain's taking * a Trip to Hanover : Marfhal Noaillea will regulate his * Motions by the March of the Confederate Army; Count * Maurice of Saxony is to do the fame according to the * Route Prince Charles of Lorrain takes. ' Marfhal Noailles's Army has marched to Oppenheim ' in fix-Columns ; his Excellency always brought op the * Rear-Guard.? ^ They write from Peterfboorg, that on the 21ft paftin the Morning, the Emprefs, accompanied by his Imperial Highnefs the Great Duke, left PeterhofF, and went by Land to a fmall Palace, called Catherina Hoff, fituated on the Bank of the Neva, and from thence her Imperial Majefty and the Great Duke came by Water in a Sloop to the Summer Palace in that City, where they arrived about eight o'clock ia the Evening, and were faluted by, the Cannon of the Admiralty and Fcrt at they pafjed by. Her Imperial Miyefly intends to refide in the Summer Palace daring the reft of t^e fine Seafon. .
