Yeflerday arrived the Mail from Holland. Letter from Conftantinoflt, Augufl 28, U.S.  The Porte has received Advice, that after Schach * Nadir had taken Kirkut, he marched to befiege Mofol, * which is not in a Condition to hold out any confiderable ' Time, and that another Body of Perfian Troops is arri- * ved within 50 Miles of Babylon. This News has terribly ' alarmed the People,who fancy that the whole Province of * Diarbekir,- which lies between the Euphrates and the Ty- * gris, is already in the Enemy's Hands. The Revolt * which the Perfians endeavoured to raife in Cardigan, has ' not been near fo fuccefiful as they expe&ed: But we are ' informed that there has been a dreadful Iofurre&ion-in * Egypt, where the Beys have made the Baffaaw of Cairo * Prifoner. Upon the Receipt of this News, the Porte * immediately fent thither feme Troops with two Ships of � War. * However, the Grand Signer's Miniflers are notdejefted * at all thefe unlucky Incidents : They flatter themfelves * that they {ball very fbon put Affairs upon a good Footing, � by Means of the Perfian Lord, who, they fay, is the * lawful Heir of the old Schach Abas, and whom they * defign to crown Sophi of Perfia. They are actually * making a Diadem and"forming a Seraglio for him, and * the Grandees confhntly pay their Court to him. This � Lord feems to be a.Man of.Parts and"great Circum- * fpe&iqn, for he would not engage to go to the Army 'till * the Grand Vizir proxnifed to go with him. '� The News of the Peace between Ruffia and Sweden, ' has veiy much impaired the Credit and Influence of * Bafhaw Bonneval, who all along infilled that it was a * Thing impracticable ,* and that it was upon the Sued of * his Opinion that the Porte made fuch large Remittances � to the Swedifh Court. His Enemies now improve this * Incident, in order to ruin him in the Grand Signor's * Efteem. According to the Iaft Advices from Briancon, the Spanifh anrLFrench Troops under the Infant Don Philip, were filing off into Piedmont by the Valleys of Barcelonetta and Quei-ras, and a Fort garrifoned by the Piedmonteze, has fur-sendered at the Approach of the Spaniards. From Chrita Vecchia they write, that the Englifh Squadron which came before that Harbour, with an Intent to bombard the Town, tor giving Shelter to the Spanifh Vef-fels that lately landed fome Artillery and Warlike Stores there, hasfheered off, having received Counter-Orders from Admiral Matthews : They add, that the Admiral fent thefe Orders at the Requeft of the King of Sardinia, who veprefented to htm that fuch an Expedition could bring no freat Profit to the EngliQi Nation, and that its Naval e-rce might be altogether as ofefuily employed another Way. �Letters from Rome advife,' that the Neapolitan Troops are actually arrived on the Frontiers of ;he Ecclefiaflick date, and that the Inhabitants of Spoleto and Parts adjacent have received Orders to give in an Account of what Prpvifions ahdForrage they have to the Pope's Commifla-ries, to the End that they may fuppiy thofeTroops on their March to the Spanifh Army under Count Gage. They add,, that Count Gage hat brought all his Artillery and . Warlike Stores, which lay diiperfcd in divers Places to .the Army; that a grand Cpuncil of War has been,held in the Duke of Moden� Pretence, wherein the Route of the Atmy was fettled, i bur that the Publick did not yet know whether it was to. march into Tufcany or towards the Bo-logneze. � According to Letters from Fjibourg, dated the 9th Inft. JST.S. it did not yet appear that Prince Charles cf Lorrajn iad given over his Defign of paffing the Rhine ; his High-r�efs was Hill making Difpofuions which looked as if he was bent upon that Paffage,. and his Troops were continually marching and counter-marching along the Banks oi the RiveV.' But, ' Letters from that Prince's Army of the i oth Inftant, N.S. that she-Army willSeparate-towards the End of this Month. They alfo tell usthat a great many of the Pandours were for returning Home, as they only engaged to ferve for a certain Term ; and that this being oppoied by the Huflara, a bloody Skirmifh enfoed between them, wherein feveral fell on both Sides.  Extras of a Letter from Worms, 03. 14, N.S. ' Some Alterations have been made in the firft Plan of-' Winter-Quarters for the Confederate Army: The Eng-' lifh Troops are to be quartered in the Auftriin Nether,-' lands, and Orders have been fent to Mentz to repair the ' Bridge at Biberick, where they are to pais the Rhine. ' Baron Bonk is gone to the Elector of Cologne, to de- * mand a Pafiage for the Hanoverian Troops through that 4 Prince's Territories. The Heffian Auxiliaries arc to be ' quartered in their own Country.- The Dutch Forces ar- * rived Yefterday in the Neighbourhood of Franckendahl: 4 The Army will refume their March from hence to Met-4 tenheim the 16th Inftant, and then proceed to Oppen-4 heim, from whence they will continue their March to ' Mentz, whither CommifTaries are already gone to pro-'* vide for trMirSjabfiftence. As for the French Army, we � have nothln^new from thence, except that fomeThou-' fands of their Troops are come back to the River Queich.' Advices from Prench Flanders bring a Confirmation that 10,000 of their Troops are filing off from thence to the Mofelle. Letters from Berlin advife, that the King of Pruffia is hiring Auxiliaries of feveral Princes of the Empire, and that among the reft the Duke of Saxe-Gotha furnifheshim with three-Regiments of Foot. They talk much at the Pruffian Court of an Army of Obfervation to maintain the Tranquillity of the Empire. They tell us from Bruffek, that feveral Couriers from the Armies on the Rhine have lately paffed through that City, but that their Difpatches are kept very fecret. The laft Letters from Italy affure us, that the Plague is quite abated at Meffina, and that the Precautions taken to prevent its fpreading had the defir'd Effect.. .On Saturday laft the Regiment, commanded by the Right Hon.
