THe Duke of fandwt having received repeated advice, that the Garrifon of Mantua h reduced to fuch extremities as to be unable to hold out any longer, and chat our fuccour.s were fhortly expected, be has thought fit to attempt to relieve that place; and accordingly we are informed by our Spies, that he is marchcJ from Cremona with all his" Forcer. His defigns ars fo varioufly rcpor;ed that we don't, know ivhacto believe thereupon : Some tt-U u-: tiwt he intends ro march on this fide the Po, and maks a. fhew of tfefiegi.ig B.rfello, in order to draw all our Forces that way, while a detachment of his Army will march from Soncino to But a reinforcement of Men and a great quantity or Proviilons into Mantua. Whatever ic be, Prince Eugene is eating all manner of precautions to difappoinr the defigns of the Enemy ; and in order thereunto, has recalled all his detachments from the Parmefamnd other Countries, to reinforce out Lines on the Oglio, and Count Quido Starcnbirgh is marched that way to alTemb'e our Troop* r and poft himfelf it hlinaria cn the Oglio.

The Pa acA Oglio have bc^ i fo centiderably f�oln that wj were forced to break down one oif 'Our Bridges on the former, but that which we have ;at Ttorgofovte has' manrver of damage. IPrfnce Eugene his viewed our Lines on the Oglio, and found the fame in that perfeftio i, that rhe French' will find the forcing of. 'cm one of rhe mod dan-srerous'and difficult tasks everrhey went about. We have received the greateft ,wrr ofnur recruies,and impatiently expect the reft of our reinforciments.Ex-1 prelims bein? fentrothem to VifHn their march with JiUpofTible fpeed/Notu-khftandingrite motions of rhe lere.ich Army, the blockade cf Mailt n a i? cirried on; and'the ported on one iJe, ami tru Impirijliftt on the other, under the c.y.nau.rd of t;\e Prince of jtnfpa-.b and Count Trasiirsin'; ordeiei to continue in their former Pofts,ftom -.viuch'tis concluded that our Generals ihink rhemfelves ilrohg enoughi to oppoits the.vFrench ivirn th? rclr of their T:oopj.' fawrt,!

The Sie'ir de Ft&rbir,, who corr.* mands rhe French Frigots, is come hither to conf�r with t he Cardinal d'E.jiria and the Spfln(/J)AmbatTador, who have received him with great magnificence. According to our laft advices frcm Terra Pirma, we may fuddenJy expe& to hear of an A&ion between rhe French and Imperialifts.the former being refolved to attempt to force the Lines, of the latter and relieve Mantua. The arrival of the King of Spain in Italy,^uts the Court of Rome to great perplexities, about ibe point of the Inveftitureof Naples, which that Prince intends to demand in Peribn. They don't know how to refufe it, and on the orher hand they are affraid ol the ill conferju>;nces that ftep may have, if the Im-perialifh get the better. ' , � Hague, May 19 They write fjom Itefel, that a great Council of War his been held in that place, in rhe prefenceo'f the King of Pruflit, wherein it was. debated, whether they fhould raiie the Siege of Key-[erwaert, to march with all the Confederate Troops againft theDuke of Burgundy. Several Generals were of that opinion ; � but the greateft part of 'em and the King of Pruflia were for the Negative, and concluded that the Siege was to be continued with all imaginat ble vigour, 4s foon as the R.lnne .would permit ,it ; efpecially, feeing that the Duke of Burgundy can-do nothing againft the Allies, and that the Earl of Ath-hnt will be in fe.y diys in. condition to infnlc him in his Camp. Hij Prujjian Majefty wiSered all th� Ammunition and Artillery that isneceflary to-Carry on that entetprize ; and they wrife, that.feverajl Waggons are gone foi the Camp under a very fborig Guard. The French continue to'play ftbrri their Batteries on tha orjier fide of the Rhine upon the Allies before Keyferwaert, but with very little fuccefs, and have nox thought fit to attempt to Bombard Dttf* jeldorp. The Troops of Hannover and Htjfe Cajfel are hourly expefted before Kejfcrwaeri, from whence they, wiita, that notwithftanding the Erench havethe opportunity ro put frefh Men into the place, they hope to become mafters of it in a few days. 'Tis confirmed from Hamburg, that the march of the Swedifli Troops in'the Dutchy of Bremen to joia.thofe in Po7 merama,is appointed to the 28th intrant, but the S-oedti tell us, that they are ^efigned to march into. Poland, and not for Saxony. An Exprefs from General Cohors is arrived herewith advice, that as. he was ready jtp Rorm Eort it Donae:,tiie Garrifon nailed thei^. Cannbp.thtew their Ammunition and Proyifions into the Water, and tttired Ufidifcorered by Favour of the Pykes and Canals. Our meri having poflelTed that Fort, marched to befiege that of tfabelU, which is, very well provided ; but ^tis hoped our next Letters will give us an account cf its being taken. Our Force*  having thus cleared their way, are to march to attack Damme near Bruges, which is a place of greai impo*-i tance. �� French Gallies from Dnnkkk are conte to1 an anchor before Qftend.
