Wind W.N.W. L O N D O N. Since our lafl arrived the Mails frem Holland, France and Flanders. ExtraH of a Letter from Peter/burg, dated Augufi 17,', N.S. 5 � Till within thefe three Weeks, we are uncertain whe- * ther there was any Truth in the Reports, that the Em-' prefs was going to fend a Body ofTroops into Germany: � Thefe ReporH having at laft reached her Imperial Ma- * jelly's Ears, the declared them groundlefs, and added, * that/he had iffued no Orders for marching Troops to ' Germany. Some Ladies of the Court having meritio- j * ned thefe Reports to the Emprefs, were anfwered in the '. ' fame Manner. Two of the faid Ladies being a few Days ' after at an Afferably in the Houfe of a Perfon of the " ' firft Rank, they dropt certain ExprefJions, which tho* ' very dark, gave Room for Sufpicion: At the fame, * Time the Privy-Counfellor Leftoc received fome fecrct � Advices, which the Emprefs ordered him to fift to-the ' ' Bottom. The Inquiries made on this Occafion have pro- * daced the Difcovery of a Chain of fuch extraordinary * Intrigues, that one cannot but wonder how People fo ' much in Favour with the Emprefs could harbour fuch De- * figns. The Papers found upon them and in their Houfes , * have been delivered to Prince Trubetfkey, General Ufcha- * kofF, and M. Leftoc, whom the Emprefs has charged to * bring ail thefe Intrigues to Light. Among thefe Papers . * two very important Letters have been found, which reV * late to the Affairs of Germany. ' Among the Perfons taken up, we reckon the Prince * and Princefs of Gagarin, the Chamberlain Liiienfeldt, ' two other Chamberlains, four Officers of the Guards, a * Secretary* of the Chancery, and eight or ten Ladies-" Two Days ago one of thofe Ladies underwent a long Ex- * amination about a Letter found in her Clofet, which re- * lares to the Marquis de B � 's laft Negotiations. * Two Perfons of Diftiu&ion are iikewife taken up at * Mofcow,. one of them is M. Lapouchin.' We hear fom Copenhagen, that 1000 Mufkets and o-ther Arms, have been lent from thence into Norway, and that his Danifh Majefty has ordered the greateft Part of the Troops in that Kingdom, which amount to about 18000, to aflemble on the Frontiers* The Fleet is (till kept inReadinefs to fail. Letters from Stockholm fay, that feveral Regiments of Horfe and Foot are going to reinforce the Swedilh Troops potted on the Frontiers of Norway. Our Accounts concerning Prince Charles jpf Lorrain, are dated from Fribourg Auguft 31, N.S, and run thus.-- The fecond Line and the Body of Referve of Prince Charles of Lorrain's Army, making about 30000 Men, marched; up the Rhine the 28th, towards Mulkeim, which is not far from the little Town of Neubourg. The firft Line with feveral detached Corps remain in the Camp of Munzingen near Bri lac : A great Number of Pontoons and a vaft Quantity of Materials for Bridges are getting in Readinefs, Prince Charles intending to pafs the River in more than one Place, particularly at Neubourg and Old Brifac. It is currently reported, that the Attempt will be made this Night or the following one, and we expeCt the Succefs with fo much the more Impatience , becaufe Provisions and Forrage are not fo Plenty here as ufual, tho* all the Country rouud about is obliged to bring them to the Camp. The Principal Magazine, which was at Offcnburgh, has been removed to Old Brifac. The French fire Night and Day on our advanced Ports,; and now and then throw Bombs into them. The Count deSaxe's Army has lately received a Reinforcement of 15 Batallions and 18 Squadrons. They write from Drefden, that the Town of Egra has at laft furrendered by Capitulation, and that the principal Terms are, that the Garrifon fhall march out with the Honours of War, and fix Pieces of Cannon, and be efcorted to the Frontiers of France by a Detachment of the Troops thadferved in the Blockade ; in Confequence of which Capitulation the two Gates of the Town have been delivered iip to the Auftrians. �xfra3 of a Letter from General Bertulaiis Camp before Ingolftadt* Auguft 31, N,S. � The 26th at Night we open'd the Trenches -7 the Be- * fiegers modea very brifk Pire on us, but killed only two '� Croatians, and wounded a few other Soldiers. The 27th * we carried on the firft Parallel within 150 Paces of the firft a Hornwork, and had fix-Men killed,- arid 15 wounded. * The Works were carried on fuccefsfully the two follow- ' 1 .1 ,. :;t j :, . ./. . . ,y : ,~ ' ingDays towards forming the fecond Parallel. Yefter-.�' day the BefiegCd plyed us very b.ifkly with their Cannon ' and Mortars; neverthelefs we went on with the fecond /; ParalieL and finifh'd it this, Morning.? We alfo made fo * co'nftaht a Fire all this Klorhirigfrom; our Cannon and * Mortars; that We quickly perceived:{the Effeft of it, by ' the Flames that aftended from feveral Parts of theTown j * our red-hot Bullets blew up a Powder Magazine that lay � in a detached Baftion. About two o'Clock this After-� noon the Commandant of the Garrifon beat a Parley, and � defired a Capitulation ; upon which Hoftilities imme- * diately ceafed on both Sides. Two Officers came out of * the Town, and Gtneral Berenclau fent two of his thither; ' The Commandant demands all the Honours of War, and * efpecially Liberty to carry away all the Artillery mark'd . * with the Arms of France. It is now 8 o'Clock, and the � two French Officers are ftill in the General's Tent :"Mef- * fengers are going to and fro between the Camp and the ' City; the Commandant's Demands meet with many *. Difficulties, and we cannot yet tell whether it will be * poffible to agree about a Capitulation. We fhall know ' more �f the Matter next Poft.' Letters from Turin advife, that the King of Spain lately made frefh Propofals for an Accommodation with his Sardinian Majefty, but they don't inform us how they were relifhed; they only tell us, that juft at that Time there arrived two Couriers from Vienna, upon the Subjeftof whpfe Difpatches the Britifh and Auftrian Minifters had each of them a Conference with the King of Sardinia ; and that the Britifh Minifter prefentedhim a Memorial relating to the prefent State of Affairs in the Empire, and the Views of his Britannick Majefty, in caufing his Troops to zSt in concert with the Queen of Hungary's Forces. The Count de Sene&erre, the French Embaffador, has had a private Audience of his Sardinian Majeiiy, wherein he acquainted him with the French King's Reafoas for marching a Body of Troops to the Confines of Piedmont. From Chamberry we have Advice, that the whole Spanish- Army, and about 16000 French Troops are in full March for Piedmont: The Spaniards go by Little St. Bernard, arid the French, who have a Train of 42 Battering Pieces, intend to force their Way by the Valley of Barcelo-. netta. Their Defign, in not marching all in one Body, is to divide the King of Sardinia's Forces. According to Advices from Francfort the firft Divifion of the Dutch Troops arrived in that Neighbourhood the jthlnftant, N.S. and i; is reckoned that the reft would be there in three Days'^'i^7:^h^r^iYt&^^itii
