SATURDAY, SEPTEMBER 1, 1744. Naples, August 4. THE Troops that were lately debark'd on our Coast, were those employ'd to cover the Lines in Sicily, when the Plague prevailed, not long ago, in that Kingdom. They con- tinued their March immedi- ately towards the Camp at Ve- letri, There, having lately been some Apprarances here, which seem to threaten a popular Insurrection, the Regency thought it necessary to order all the Cannon from on board the Ships in the Port to be landed, and dispos'd in such a manner through the City, as might restrain the People within the Bounds of their Duty. They write from Abrazzo, that a Detachment of 600 Spaniards having advanced as far as Fermo, in order to surprize a Corps of 100 Hussars, the latter retired in Time ; have- ing first burnt their Magazines, in which were a vast Quantity of Corn and Forage ; they likewise left behind them four small Pieces of Cannon, which belong'd to their Foot, and were to have been employ'd in reducing some of the Towns in the Neighbourhood, in case they had not arriv'd as they did. Pirna, August 16. His Prussian Majesty arriv'd here on the 19th. On the 24th he passed the Elbe, and To- morrow the Army assembles at Leutmaritz,. It is very certain, that the Queen of Hungary's Forces are all in Motion ; and that a Body of Irregular Troops are actu- for Dunkirk, with Brandy and Salt, which he took near the Edystone, the said Privateer is since sailed on her Cruize. Pool, August 29, Wind W. a fresh Gale. Sailed the Lamb, Johnson, for London. Cowes, August 19. Wind W. Since my last came in the Constant Sarah, Ayres, from Amsterdam, last from Portsmouth, for this Place ; and the Rachel, Pallion, from Southampton for Guernsey, and sailed again Ye- sterday. Just now came in the St. Francis, James Gaul, of and for Dublin, from, Havre de Grace, being there. when War was declared against England. ' The Master reports, that a large Privateer was fitting out there, which wou'd mount Carriage Guns, and was almost ready to put to Sea. Dover, August 50. Wind N. W. Came in the Eliza- beth, Newman, from London for Bristol ; the Rebecca, Bedlington, and the Billing, Stonehouse, both for Sun- derland. ' The Tide is now higher here, than ic has ' been since the Year 1720.' Deal, August 30. Wind N. W. Remain in the Downs his Majesty's Ships the Grafton, Lenox, Sutherland, Hec- tor and Merlin Sloops, with the Outward- bound Ships as per last, and Six East- lndia Ships; the Royal Guardian being sailed for the River., High Water this Day ^ at London- Bridge.^ LONDON. Private Letters from Hamburgh say, that, accord- ing to their last Advices from Stockholm, there will speedily assemble there a Dyet of the States of Sweden, in order to consider some important Propositions that ally arrived in the Neighbourhood of Prague ; but it is, at the same time, no less certain, that most ot the Bo- hemian Nobility are retiring out of that Kingdom, with their Families and Effects. Besides the Army that his Prussian Majesty is marching this Way into Bohemia, he proposes to employ a large Corps of Troops in the Upper Palatinate, to force a Passage that Way into Ba- varia, while the Imperial Army attempts the same Thing thro' the Circle of Franconia. Hague, September 1. According to private Letters from Metz, his most Christian Majesty's Distemper was| a malignant Fever. The Physicians Dumoulin and Hel- vetius, are, at present, there; having been sent for from , Paris, as foon as the King was thought to be in Danger. They very much approv'd the Application of Leeches, and advised his Majesty to take the Air, eat nourishing' Things, and not fatigue himself, either with Business, j or Travelling, for a Fortnight or three Weeks. The same Letters say, that the Dauphin has been very ill j which was occasioned by his over- heating himself in his Journey from Paris. They write from Franckfort, that his Imperial Majesty has written to the French King, to desire that, in case he sends an Army into Germany this Year, the Command of it be given to M. Belleisle; but it is very much doubted whether this will be com- plied with, the Disgrace of certain Ladies having, in some Measure, lessen'd his Excellency's Credit at Court; however, it is thought M. Mallebois will be employed, once more, on the Side of Westphalia. To be SOLD, FINE New Chianti Florence Wine ( just Imported) by Messieurs Smith and Wilcox, at the Three Conies in Cannon Street. IRELAND. Dublin, August 25. Last Thursday Morning died Upton Peacock, Esq; Physician- General to the Army in this Kingdom. The same Day died of an Apoplexy, at Castle- Belling ham in the County of Lowth, William Aston, Esq; Knight of the Shire for the said County. He was a Gen- tleman of an exceeding good Character, and his Death is greatly lamented. His Majesty has been pleased to appoint William Co- nygham, Esq; a Cornet in Sir John Ligomer's Regiment of Horse. HOME PORTS. Dublin, August 25. Arriv'd the Two Sisters, Boyce, from Christiansands. Sailed the Louisa, Ruble, for Bour- deauX; and the Agatha Margaretta, Arboe, for Dron- theim. Falmouth, August 27. Wind S. W. The Duke of Corn- wall Privateer, Capt. Caswell, has sent in here a French Ship, with Oil and Fish from Newfoundland. Plymouth, August 28. Since my last came in the LO- retta, Husbands, from Barbados for London. ' She came out in Company with the Captains Walker, Rogers, Lindsey, and Pipon, who are gone North about; the above Ship has been six Weeks in her Passage. Came in the Dispatch and Dover Privateers, from cruizing. Dartmouth, August 28. Wind S. W. The 25th sailed from hence the Young Ceres Privateer, Capt. Soper, and returned next Evening with a French Ketch from Nantz The fame Letters say, that great Remittances had been lately made to that City from France; destin'd, as is believed, for the Service of One, or more, of the Northern Powers ; and which are to be at the Disposal or a Minister that is shortly expected from Paris, in his Way to Stockholm. They write from Dresden, that a Courier lately ar- rived there from Warsaw, with Orders for the Duke of Saxe Weissensels to make the necessary Dispositions for the March of 20,000 or his Majesty's Troops; which, it is thought, will be sent into Bohemia. The last Letters trom Strasbourg inform us, that the French Army have suffer'd exceedingly by forc'd Marches; and that Numbers of these Soldiers are ill of the Flux, occasion'd chiefly by their being but indifferently pro- vided with Victuals. The last Letters from the Hague say, that the An- swer of the States to the Memorial of his Britannick Majesty's Minister, was expected last Friday ; and that it is not doubted their High Mightinesses will very soon declare War against France. His Majesty's Ship the Port Mahone, Capt. Harrison, on the Bristo Station, has taken a French Banker, and was left in Chace of two other Ships. The Constant Mary, of 14 Guns, and 38 Men; and the Pacifick, of 16 Guns, and 40 Men, are both taken, and carried into Barbados, by the Argyle Man of War; they were bound from Bourdeaux for Martinico. A French Snow from Gueney, with 250 Negroes, is taken by a Privateer, and carried into Barbados.
