This Evening they are to emcamp at Suite, * which is four Leagues from this Place and three from ' Weiffembourgh, by which March they return from 4 whence they came. Yefterday 30 Pieces of Cannon were ' fent from Strafbourg towards Landau and Spire. The * Englifli, who have paffed the Rhine, extend themklva 4 from Oppenheim as far as Worms : They are coming to- * wards ns, and we are going to meet them: The Wine, * it feems, is brought in, (a French Saying) and muft be * drank; the only QueiUon is, which Side will be the moil 4 fortunate.' Extract of' a Letter from Marflial Noaillei's Army, Augufl ^1, N.S. ' Marflial Coigny, after aflifting at a Council of War * held in Marfhal Noailles's Tent, departed in order to ' take upon him the Command of the Army under the ' Count de Saxe, who is to repair immediately, to the * Grand Army. Marfhal Noailles, upon Advice of the 4 Approach of the Army of the Allies, has called in the * HoufhoW Troops and feveral Regimenrs which he had ' fent towards the Upper Rhine, and, began his March ' towards Spire* in order, to traverfe the Enemy's * Defigns. They write from Paris, that the French EaR-India Company have iffued Orders for furnifhing the King with 40 Ships, purfuant to the Notice lately given them , which 40 Ships are to be put on the fame Footing as the other Ships in the Royal Navy. This Demand of the Court, they fay, will, for fome Time, greatly diforder the Company's Affairs, and hinder them from making the Armaments which they had defigned.

Affairs of ' Corfici are partly the Occafioh of it, becaufe the Change ' in the Members of the Senate was not perceived'till after * the Arrival of an Exprefs from Baftia. 'Tis pretended * that the Malecontents have made new Demands, which � the Government cannot eafily agree about j fome Mem- * bers having declared againft granting thofe Demands, and * others appearing willing to grant any Thing that the * Malecontents pleafe to afk. We are generally ofOpi-� nion, that as all the Letters from Cdrfica are perfumed- * at the Office of the Magiftrates of Health, thofe dirtfted * to private Perfons are ftopt^to the End that no Body may * difcourfe of the State of Affairs in thatlfland. * Laft Week a Galley with zoo Soldiers was fent to Me- * neglia, a fmall'To'wn on the EaJlern Coaft of the Re-' publick, on Account of a Tumult that has happened * there, the Occafion of which was thus : Two Banditti * 'having been apprehended' by the Sbirres, were refcued by * their Friends and Relations, who killed feveral of th Sbirres; In this Fray the Women of the Place did excellent Service ; for, without inqui/ing into the Merits of  the Caufe, they immediately provided them/elves with a good Stock of Ammunition, (i.e. Sand aitd Afhes) which they let By fo plentifully in the Eyes of the Sbirres, while the Men engaged them in clofe Fight, that the poor Wretches were forced to let go their Prifoners, and leave their Affailants Matters of the Field. However, we forefee that the Rejoicings for this Victory will be damped.upon, the;Arrival of the Galley, and that fome of the Authors of the Riot will fwing for it.' -Yefterday it was confidently reported, that Prince Charles ! .with his Army, paffed the Rhine the cth Enftant, N.S.
