L . A N D E R S. Jntmrfi, Sept. i. Among the many other Wonders General CountLowendahl has performed this Campaign, we may reckon this, that he has turned our whole City into an Hofpital. The wounded Officers are lodged in the Burghers, of which, at prefent, there is not one without a Gueff. As for the poor Soldiers^ they are lent to the Hofpi-tals, from whence, though they bury by* the Hundred, yrt Recruits come in fo regularly, thai they remain as fujl as ever. There is a DHe*fe amongft them, which the Dutch call Polder fag, i. t. the Marfh Fever, occafioned partly by the narurJ bad Air in the Low Country dbout Bergen op-Zoom, and partly by the unwiiolforae Exhalations, occafioned by the opening the Earth, to which we ffliy add the Want of all Neceflaries, particularly of Bread, and of Water. This Diftcrftper is, in itfelf, dangnoOs enough, but the French Surgeons have contrived to- render it mortal by keeping the People low, whereas '-he Dutch Phyrkk for this Milady isilways well moiftened with Geneva ; yet there is no perfuading the Gentlemen ot the Faculty out of their Way, though they cannor but fee the bad ESths of it by the Numbers thit die daily. We have Cannon nd Mortars rendered uielefs in theS*iege returned to us duly, which arc replaced by Supplies from all the Town in Flanders; as for Ammunition, there is none to be bad near.T than Namur on one Side, and Oftend on rhe other; Bri0h, 8ept. j. We are aflu ed, that the King's departure is ftVd for the 18th of this Month. M. de ChatiBon, a Lieutenant-Colonel, arid one of the belt Partifans tbe French nave, arrived the Day before Yefterday at Night, with 400 Voluntiers and 300 Hulfirs, fn order fo puc a Stop to the Auitrim Huffars, who very rouchdillurb thole parts, by their continual Inroads. One of their Parties the Day before Yefterday, carried off thirty Oxen and Hor-fes, and retired with their B�oty to the County of Liege. The Duke de Havre has taken Poft at Lier, to fecure the Communication between Mecb* Jin and Antwerp.' The Counts de Friele and St. Germain have terft levertl Offors into Germany, recruiting, itf order to cotoplcat their Regiments which have fuffered very much, and Marfhal 6ixe ^ going to raife a Body of ^00 Negroes, having lent Orders into all the Porta of France for that pur-pole, and to enlift at any price, or even to preis all tbjry can' fihaV Tbey write from the King's Quarters, that the Army' making  general Forage upon the Borders oT the Mecfe, there happened a, I mart Rencounter between the Graffitis and Mor-lieres, and a large Deuchmem of Auftrian Dragoon* and Huffirs who had paffVd the River at Maeftricht, and that many were kiHed on both fides. According to Advices from Maeftricht, the Duke Of Cumberland has detached piioom', and the general Opinion i>, that the two Grand. Armies win draw near the ("aid Town, to decide its Fate by a general A&ion, which, it is thought, will be very obftirute and bloody, and will ferve as an Epilogue to the Siege, which the French are determined to continue, without tbey are compelled to r&ifc it. Several People are brought rn on Sufpr* cionot giving the To^n Intelligence, and Provi-* fions of all forts are very lcarce and dear. tiege, Sept. �. The King received an Exprcfs from Count Lonsendahl, with Advice, that the different Mines which that General had caufed 10 be fprung on the Counterfcatps of Bergen-'op-Zoom, had Ijad the intended Effecfi that the Saps were continued with ail pof&ble Diligence, and that lie hoped the Batteries would be ready tor battering in Breach by the ?th. Stctnbnitn, September 4. Things are pretty much in the State that they were, 01a t is, the Enemy have not advaneed much at Bergen-op-TOom i et-peciaffy fioce tbe Number of Miners and Pioneers, who were wanted in the Town, is fo augmented within tbefe few Days, that they are in a Condition of deft toying aO tbe Enemy's Works under Groartd. The Rafteries of the Town have made a great Firing, the three Jiaft Days, and have rumed in the Saps, Lodgments, Batteries and imrench-mews ot the Enemy, fuch a Quantity of Bombs andGranadcJ, tha^t it has been impoffibie they could advance die Works, many of which has been rumed and others much damas/d. We are in no fear for tbe Town, btft we have thought it prudent to lay the places about Bergen onder Water, and cbofe of Tbolen and this Town, which were not fo before. Some Advice* from the Befieged fay, that one of Count LowendauPs Valet de Chambres has furren-dered himfeli to rhe Governor, and that he reports, that the French QfSctrs murmurs agatnft that Genera), and that there is very little Harmony betwiac them, and that he heard the Count fay, in the pretence of many Ofifeers that were dining with jwm, be v/ii revived to mtlfe frtmfJf Mafler of tbt fcWef Beruntp xtfm, if it aft bun bt/f tbe JOit^'i At' tin> fa tbe Rub Prmiatt t{ ZuUai wouiipty / our ftld ftr aUfbe bfk, Lead, and Gunpxotkr tba weuti be e^ttmed htUsitp.

We have fome Xdvices .that Count Lowendahl is in-difpofed, and that he is gone to Antwerp or Bruftels, Count Clermont Gallerande having taken the Command of the Siege in his room. It will be neceffary however to fufp/rnd our Belief of it till we have more certain Information. As to any Thing ejfe' we are very eafy about the ItTue of the Siege, and, there is no body who is not perfwaded that the Town wiU pref�$je bcr Virginity. In t{�e�t, the Di(gofuiant whkti are carrying on are of foch a Nature, that even if that Enemy lhould makes Breach, which however will not be eafy fort kern to do, and attempts* us by AiTault, tbey will meet with fo many Obftaclcs* and be fo well received that they will seturn to the Charge with no great.Stotnicb. , hater from Bergen**p*�oom, Sept: *. . A grrat Number ot CannoneorJ, Miners, an4 Pioneers, arrive here daily, and are fuccfsfutly eratf ployed in deftroying the Works of the Beneferss.' Tbe latter bad, with great Labouf, etfabltflied QSi the Ruins of the Lunette of Zealand, a Royal Battery^ whereon they put fix Pieces of Cannon* and were ready the Day before Yefterday, as their, thought to Batter in Breach; but our Artillery made that Day and the Night following fuch a-terrible Fire as entirely deftroyed the faid Battery ? and wealfo iprung two Mines with great Succefe, They have been at Work fince Yefterday to efta*? biifh another, which will ,be directed againft the Ravelin.of Dedem, (not Dedemon. as often improperly caJl'd) which we are preparing to Defend* Lali Night we blew up two Mines at the left Face, of Tbe Ravelin, which diflodged tome of tha> Ene4 mies, and deftroyed their Works.

The French have been foe fome Days in a State of Inaction before Fort Rover, but tbey have juft reinforced the Corps on that Side, and are erecting a new Battery there. Aatveerp, Sen. M.
