FRANCE.] Marseillesf August 15. TWO English Ships of War having run a French Tartan ashore at Minorca, sent a Boat with forty Men to bring her off. A Detachment of Regular Troops, who were going the Rounds of the Coast, discovcring the Boat, laid themselves down on their Bellies, till the English, were within Gun- shot, and then took their Aim so well, that they killed twenty or five and twenty of them, which determined the rest to row back to their Vessel. FRANCE ] Paris, August 27 The Talk of marching an Army to the Frontiers of Germany is reviv'd. HOLLAND ] Hague, August 31. The Dispatches of several Ministers of the Republick at Foreign Courts,' mention the Accession of the Court of Russia to the Treaty of Alliance lately concluded between the Houses of Austria and Bourbon as a Thing finally settled. Some of them add, that this Accession was made with several Modifica- tions, the Empress being desirous to avoid in this Act whatever might seem contradictory to the Subsidy Treaty which subsists between her and Great Britain. SCOTLAND. Edinburgh, September 1. Last Saturday arrived from Aberdeen the'Margaret of Seagreen, bound from Camp vere to Bergen, Who reports, that on Tuesday se'nnight he Was taken off Holy Island, about fifteen Leagues from the Land by a French Privateer,. from Boulogne, mount- ing four Carriage- Guns and about thirty Swivels, with a Crew, of sixty Men, among whom were several English and Scotch, who did not shew their Countrymen Com- mon Civility- After detaining him four Hours on board, they, ransomed him for Ninety five Guineas, and carried James Younger ( the Master) Ramsomer, The Frenchman said his Orders were to carry into Port three of all, his Prizes, and, to, ransom the fourth; and having already taken three, this Vessel fell to be ransomed On Satur- day the Margaret spoke with the Grampus Sloop, who the Day before had chased a French Privateer off Stonehaven, and lost her in the Night. By the Glasgow, Capt. Morris, from Christiansand for Irvine, arrived at Stornoway, we have an Account that a French Privateer of four Guns, six Swivels, and fifty Men, had put into Christiansand, after taking three Prizes, a Brig from Newcastle, a Sloop from Shetland for Hamburgh, and a Brig. The Captain of the Privateer gave an Account, that there were two Snow- Privateers, each mounting sixteen Carriage Guns, and six more small Privateers, all from Dunkirk, in the North Sea. COUNTRY NEWS. Salisbury, September 6. On Tuesday last the British Troops, encamped near Blandford, were reviewed by Lieutenant General Sir John Mordaunt, and his Grace the Duke of Bedford, Major General; there were six Regiments of Foot, and two of Horse, which were all drawn out early in the Morning at the Camp, and soon after marched to the Race- Plain, at a little Distance, to be review'd. The Infantry form'd a Line of at least three Quarters of a Mile in Length, supported by the Royal Regiment of Scots Greys on the Right, and the Tenth Regiment of Dragoons on the Left, and the Can non in Front; in this and other Positions they went thro' their various Exercise, and made the several Firings in the same Manner as when in the Field of Battle. The great Number of Troops all compleatly accoutred, the vast Ex- tent of Ground they covered, and the Expertness and Regularity with which they went through their different Evolutions and Firings, made, upon the Whole, by much the most grand Martial Appearance that has been seen in this Part of the Kingdom for many Years. There were present the Hessian Prince of Nassau, General Fursten- burgh, many of the English Nobility and Gentry, and, according to the nearest Computation that could be made, about twenty thousand Spectators. [ This Camp is thought to be no Way inferior, in Point of true Service, Figure, Order, OEconomy, and a regular Discharge of Religious, as well as Military, Duties, to that of the Hessians at Winchester: The Soldiers observe a most exact Discipline, and behave well, principally owing to the good Example set them by their Officers, who are no less distinguish'd for their Politeness than their Bravery.] VY Falmouth, September 4. This Day arrived here, in the Lisbon Packet, Carr Scroope, Esq; late Captain of his Majesty's Ship the Dolphin, who went into Fort St. Philip in the Island of Minorca, with one hundred and thirty Seamen, to assist General Blakeney when the French be sieged it ; and brought with him Dispatches from Sir Ed- wird Hawke, Lord Tyrawley, and the General; but being very ill, was obliged to send those Dispitches away by Land, being unable to do it himself, and is gone by Water to Plymouth. Gosport, September 8. This Morning came into the Harbour six Dutch Vessels, laden with Naval Stores, Part of these taken by his Majesty's Ships Rochester and Port- Mahon. It is reported that they are to be unloaded forth- with, and the Cargoes to be used for the Benefit of our Navy. To the PRINTER, tic. SIR, Bristol, Sept. 7, 1756. AS the Gazette has not our Bristol Address in it, I here inclose you a Copy of it, that it may be con- vey d to the Publick by the Means of your Paper. I am, Sir, yours, & c. To the KING's MOST EXCELLENT MAJESTY. The humble ADDRESS of the Gentlemen, Clergy, Mer- chants, and other Principal Inhabitants of the City of BRISToL. WE your Majesty's most dutiful and loyal Subjects, the Gentlemen, Clergy, Merchants, and other Principal Inhabitants of the City of Bristol, beg- Leave to lay ourselves at your Majesty's Feet, and to address your Majesty on the present afflictive and melancholy Si- tuation of Publick Affiirs, both at Home and Abroad. It is with the most sensible Grief, that we see one of the most valuable Fortresses in your Majesty's Dominions torn from us by a deceitful and peifidious Enemy ; and our American Settlements, by some fatal Delay, or Mis- management, exposed to very imminent Dangers; at a Time when your Majesty has a confess'd Superiority of Naval Force, and after the largest Supplies have most readily been granted for their Preservation and Support. We have the highest Reason to hope, from your Ma- jesty's known Justice and constant Attention to the Welfare and Prosperity of your People, that the latent Causes of our present Calamities will be strictly enquired into and brought to Light: And that those Perfons ( if any such there be) who have either wantonly neglected, or trea- cherously betray'd, the Honour of the Nation, may not escape the Punishment due to their atrocious Crimes. At the same Time, we repose ourselves in your Majesty's paternal Care, that the late Supplies may be strictly ap- propriated to- the salutary Ends for which they were grant ed ; the Distressing and Annoyance of our declared Ene mies, the Defence of the Kingdom, and the Protection and Support of our Commerce and Colonies. We cannot but lament, that, for Want of a well- regu- lated National Militia-, your faithful Subjects of these Kingdoms are not at Liberty to prove by their Actions their Affection to their Country, and their Loyalty to the best of Kings : And we beg Leave to assure your Majesty, that, for our Parts, we shall always ( when enabled) be ready and desirous to exert our Courage, and hazard our Lives and Fortunes in Defence of your Majesty's sacred Person and illustrious Family, against all Invaders what- soever. LONDON. [ Thursday, Sept. 9. It is reported, that the Express. forwarded to Town by Capt. Scroope Contains no Account of any set Engage- ment; but confirms the taking of several Transports. The Express is said to contain an Account of the Fleet's being healthy, and that General Blakeney was recover'd from his Fatigue and Indisposition. It is further said, that in this Express a Letter is address'd to his Majesty, and a large Packet to the Lords of the Admiralty. Two Advice Vessels, and the Transport Vessels which lately sailed from England, have joined Admiral Hawke. Ten Pieces Of fine Brass Cannon, from fifty to sixty hundred Weight, with their Carriages, were on Tuesday brought to the Tower Wharf, and are in a Day or two to be shipt for'the Mediterranean, with many others of a larger Size. Tuesday Col Jeffreys kiss'd his Majesty's Hand at Ken sington, on being appointed Colonel of General Fowke's Regiment of Foot, as a Reward for his gallant Behaviour at Port- Mahon. Extract of a private Letter from Amsterdam, : Sept 3 " Letters from Leipzig of this Day, give us an Account that the Prussian Troops are arrived in that City front Magdeburgh, that they have taken Possession of the Gates, have planted four Pieces of Cannon against tha Town House, and are billeted from 14, to 16 and 20, in almost every House in the City. At the same we hear » that the severest Injunctions have been laid on the People thro' all the Towns they have passed, forbidding them, on Pain of Death, to communicate by Letters the Destina- tion of these Troops The Terror into which this Cir- cumstance has thrown the Traders at Leipzig, is un- speakable, their Commissions for Goods being counter- manded, and the Stoppage of their Merchandize being earnestly desired till farther Notice. Letters from Berlin at the same Time communicate, as a Secret, that the Court has discovered, by a Secretary lately escaped from Vienna, that the Court of Saxony has embraced the Scheme of the Court of France and Vienna. It is conceived here that his Prussian Majesty, whofe Purposes are not always known till executed, being well apprised of the Designs of his no good Friends, has made Use of his usual Method of taking Occasion by the Forelock, and will be ready in Silesia and Bohemia before he is call'd on." ' Tis said that the King of Prussia does not intend to march abruptly into Bohemia and Moravia, but only to keep his Forces on the Borders of those Countries, for the Safety of his own Territories, and there wait for tha ulterior Motions- of the Austrians. We hear his Pruffian Majesty has sent a Message to the States General Of United Provinces how their High Mightinesses intend to behave, in Case he should be obliged to come to an open Rupture with the House of Austria, and should be attack'd at the same Time by the French, in Consequence of the Treaty of Versailles; and ' tis said the Prussian Monarch required an Answer from the States in eight Days. The Antigillican Privateer, of 3O Guns, and Com- pleatly mann'd with 200 brave Fellows, lies now near the Red- House at Deptford, and will sail with the first fair Wind. The Seven Sisters, Whitewood, from Figuera for Fal- mouth; is taken by a French Privateer and carried into St. Sebastians. On the 11th ult. two French Privateers carried into Alicant an English Bark that was bound from Gibraltar for Barcelona, worth 10,000 Dollars: One of them mounts 14 Carriage Guns, 22 Swivels, and 104 Men The other is a Row Galley of- four Guns, 55 Men, and 28 Oars, who is sailed to the Westward, and the former to Marseilles with the Bark. Three Privateers are sailed lately from Dunkirk, and three others are ready to go out, whose Destination is not the North Sea. Extract of a Letter from on Board the Fortune Sloop, com- manded by Capt Maplesden, off the Hieres, Aug. 12. " Though the French have taken Care to furnish all the Forts along the Coast of Minorca with Troops, Ad- miral Hawke's People have landed in several Places, and carried off Numbers of Cattle and Provisions A Vessel is stationed here to observe the Toulon Fleet." This Week several Victuallers, in Middlesex and Sur- ry, have been convictcd in the Penalty of Five Pounds for selling fine Ales, & c. in their Houfes in Decanters, and other Vessels not mark'd according to Law j and Yesterday three Fellows, who made it their Business, for some Time, to inform against Persons offending against this ACt, were detected in Whitechapel, and a Mob rose upon them, who treated them so severely with Horse- pond Discipline, that they were glad to get off with whole Bones. Last Week at the Assizes at Bristol, a Trial came on between Mr. James Thomas of that City, Plaintiff, and Mr. Gregory of Wotton, in behalf of a Minor, his Wife's Son. Defendant, for the Estate of the late Capt. Thomas, of Queen- Street: It appeared upon the Trial that Capt. Thomas, in the Year 1743, made his Will in Favour of the Plaintiff', which Will was produced in Court, with the Captain's Name cut out, and was pretended to be cancelled by the Captain himself, another Will of a later Date being produced in Favour of the Defendant. The Trial lasted from Eight in the Morning till Five the fol- lowing. ' The Substance of the Evidence being very ju- diciously summed up, and the Charge given, the Jury withdrew, and in about Half an Hour returned with a Verdict for the Plaintiff, the Defendant being obliged to refund the Arrears, and pay Cost of Suit. The Council for the Plaintiff were Mr. Serjeant Davy, Mr. Gould. Mr. Hussey, and Mr. Hotchkin, Monday Night a young Lad was taken up it an Ale house in Westminster, for putting off a bad Half Crown j and being searched there were found upon him several other Pieces of counterfeit Money in the Similitude of Crowns, Half- Crowns, Shillings, and Sixpences. There were in his Company three Fellows, who rescued him before a Constable could be had to take him before a Magistrate. On Tuesday Morning between Kingsland and Newing ton some Women riding in a Waggon, and the Driver walking behind, One of the Women took hold of the Whip, which the Man had stuck in the Shafts, when the Horses took Fright, threw her Out of the Waggon; and both the Wheels went over her Head, and killed her on the Spot. Her Husband was walking with the Waggoner behind the Waggon. At the Races at Warwick there was a great Number of Gentlemen, and good Sport; the Give and Take Purse Yesterday se'nnight was won by Mr Kingkin's Grey Horse, King Fisher; and the Hunter's Purse on Thurs- day by Mr. Churchill's Bay Gelding, Slider. SUNDAY'S and MONDAY'S POSTS. Arrivd the MAILS from Holland and Flanders. TURKEY] Constantinople, August I. SEVERAL Thousands have died of the Plague in this Capital in less than six Weeks. Its Violence is greatly increased by the excessive Heats. The Mufti is deposed, and banished to Burso in Natolia. He is succeeded, ac- cording to an antient Custom, by the Cadilesquer of Romelia. ITALY.] Leghorn, August 18. Letters received here from Smyrna, dated July 17, advise that for some Time past great Confusion has prevailed in several of the Pro- vinces under the Government of the Grand Signor ; that at Aleppo, the Garrison of which Place is composed of Janissaries, they took up Arms against the Bashaw, put him to Death, and afterwards set his Palace on Fire, and burnt it to Ashes. The same Letters say, that the Inha- bitants of Thiatira, one of the richest Cities in Natolia, had taken up Arms against their Governor ; and that like- wise at Coma, Salonica, Volo, and several other Parts of the Ottoman Empire, they were ready to fix a Standard to revolt. Several Advices from the Coast of Barbary agree that a pestilential Sickness rages in the Algerine Army in- tended to besiege Tunis; which Design, in Consequence Of that Calamity, will be laid aside. SPAIN] Barcelona, August 15. Letters from Majorca say, that Admiral hawke has quitted his Cruizing off Mahon. •• Course he has taken : And from Gibraltar we are informed, that Lord Tyraw- ley is taking all possible Measures for the Defence and Safety of the Place, in case he should be attacked. He has taken an exact List of all the Families and Inhabi- tant there, and has given Directions for some of them to leave the Place in a Month's Time, and take their Ef- fects with them, under Pretence that this is done to lessen the Consumption of Provisions, which must be preserved for the Use of the Garrison, which is very numerous at present, being increased by the broken Remains of the Army from Fort St Philip. From the LONDON GAZETTE. PRUSSIA] Berlin, August 30. The 28th Instant Part of his Prussian Majesty's forces began their March to- wards Bohemia. His Prussian Majesty has published the following Declaration, containing bis Reasons for entering the Saxon Territory. The unjust Designs of the Court of Vienna putting the King under the Necessity to be before hand with an Enemy who declines every Way of Conciliation, his Ma- jesty sees himself forced against his Inclination, and in Consequence of these very Circumstances, to enter with his Army into the Hereditary Countries of the King of Poland, Elector of Saxony. " It is with Regret that the King finds himself obliged to take a Step which his personal friendship for his Polish Majesty would have made him avoid, if the Laws of War, the Misfortunes ot the Times, and the Security of his own Dominions, did not render it indispensably necessary. " There is Nobody who is not acquainted with the Events of the War which the King was obliged to under, take in 1744, in order to rescue the Empire, which the Court of Vienna meant to oppress in the Person of its supreme Head.— All the World knows with how much Tenderness the King then acted towards the Court of Saxony, and what were, the fatal Consequences that re sulted from it; the Connexions which that Court formed s the Junction of its Troops with those of his Enemies j their Entry into Silesia ; and, in short, the dangerous Scheme of attacking the King in the very Heart of his Dominions, and even in his own Capital. •• The Return of the same Circumstance obliges the King to consult the Rules of Prudence, and them only. — But, in taking this Part, his Majesty declares, at the same Time, to his Polish Majetty, in the strongest Manner, and in the Face of all Europe, that he has not any offensive Design against the King of Polmd, or his Dominions j — That he does not enter them as an Enemy, but merely for his own Secuny;— That he will take Care that his Troops shall observe the most exact Order, and the most severe Discipline ; - And that, whilst he is forced to yield to the most pressing Considerations, he only waits for the happy Moment when these Considerations will permit him to restore to that Prince a Deposit which he will ever look upon sacred." [ Thus far the London Gazette. SAXONy ] Leipsick, Sept. 4. Sunday about Ten in the Morning a body of about 15,000 Troops enter'd this City very unexpectedly, and, after taking Possession of Gates, placed Guards at the Town- House, the Castle, and the Publick Offices. The Main Guard was placed at the Market- Place, wheie twelve Pieces of Cannon were also planted. The Inhabitants, by their Consternation occa- sioned by this unexpected Event, did not open their Houses, Shops) and Warehouses, on Monday Morning; but at Ten o'Clock Prince Fetninand of Brunswick, who com- manded the Prussian Troops, published a Declaration con- taining his Prussian Majesty's Motives for entering Saxony. Major Bilderbeck having given Notice on Sunday, in the King's Name, to the Deputies of the Corporation of Merchants, that they were to pay all Taxes and Customs only to the Order of his Prussian Majesty, the Deputies waited on Prince Ferdinand of Brunswick next Morning at Eleven o'Clock, whi> received them very politely, and assured them they might depend on the King's Friendship, Protection, and Care to maintain good Order. The same Day the Prince took Possession of the Custom House and the Excise Office, and ordered the Magazines ot Corn to be opened for the Use of his Troops. The Prussian Troops left us On Wednesday, and are gone to join the main Body of their Army, which is said to be already near the Fron- tiers of Bohemia. DENMARK ] Hamburgh, Sept. 3'. Several Letters from, the North positively says that the Emprefs of Russia has acceded to the Treaty of Friendship and Defensive Alli- ance concluded at Versailles the first of May between the Empress Queen and his Most Christian Majesty, by which Accession, ' tis said, she engages to keep a Body of 70,000 Men in Readiness for the Service of the Two contracting Powers, and promises to extend this Succour to such other Powers as may take Part in the said Treaty. FLANDERS.] Brussels, Sept 7. According to our Advices from France, the several Camps which have been form'd for some Time upon the Coasts of the Ocean, are to break up 0n the 15th of this Month. From the UTRECHT GAZETTE. London. The Government have received Dispatches from Mr. Mitchell, the King's Minister at the Court of Prussia, concerning the Means of assembling in the Fra- pirc, if Circumstances should require it, an Army of One Hundred and Eighty Thousand Troops of the Powers in Alliance with Great Britain, by the Junction of those of Hanover, Brunswick, and other Princes of Germany, with those of Prussia. . INTELLIGENCE from VIRGINIA. Extract of a Letter from James River. " The Indians continue to molest our Frontiers. They have lately set Fire 10 a Fort Call'd Vaux Fort, 40 Miles beyond the Mountains, in which six unhappy People were burnt to Ashes, and twelve more belonging to the Garri- son missing, supposed to have shared the barbarous Fate of the Scalping Knife from the Hands of those Blood- thirsty Barbarians. A pretty young Girl, the Commander's Daughter, was carried away at the same Time by those ravening Wolves'. There never was such a rich Appear- ance of a Crop of all Sorts as this Year, and every thing how seems to be out of Danger." The Letter writer adds, that Lord Loudon arrived at New York the 22d of July We esteem it extraordinary good News that the Nightingale ( a Man of War) is safe arrived at North America. Notwithstanding she was emtrusted with Lord Loudon the Commander in Chief, and many other Officers, together with One Hundred and Fifty Thousand Pounds in Money, she is reckoned the worst Sailor in the Navy, was ventured by herself, and has been long enough [ without being heaedof to have got home and back again. Most Persons began to give her up for lost. LONDON, Saturday, Sept. it. A Letter from Madrid says, that Orders have been sent to Carthagena for the following Ships to put to Sea, viz. Four of 70 Guns e. ch, One ot 60, and a Frigate of 26 ; that this Squadron in to be joined off the Harbour by a Xebeck, and is destined to protect their Navigation in the Mediterranean; and that another Squadron of the Line Force is immediately to be fitted out to cruize in the Ocean. There are two Letters in Town, To day, from on board Admiral Boscawen's Fleet, dated the 28th ult. which give an Account that they had fallen in with a Fleet of Home- ward bound Martinico Ships, and taken eight of them ; and had also taken eleven Transports and sunk two, which were going to Brest. Our last Advices from Paris say, that a Resolution has been taken to embark immediately, and at all Events, eight Battalions for Corsica. It is asserted that the Corsicans have again desired our Protection, and t0 make them Partners of our Liberty, which Invitation is said to be accepted. We learn from Strasburgh, that from the Preparations making there, it is evident that the Reports of a French Army being formed upon the Rhine, were far from be- ing groundless. The Militia have replaced the Garrison, there is a great Train of Artillery ready, and Orders have lately been issued for the immediate raising Magazines for the subsistence of at least forty thousand Men, which may be assembled in the Space of a few Days, in Case the Corn was once fairly got in. • They write from Leipsick, that the Protestant Princes of the Empire are about to form an Army of Observation of eighty thousand Men. Yesterday it was reported, that the King of Prussia had taken Dresden. We are assured that the States of Holland have been told, in plain Terms, that in Time coming every Snip of theirs, laden with Stores for France, and taken by us, shall be deemed lawful Prize This Day eighteen hundred Quarters of Wheat were shipp'd for Portugal, and twelve hundred Quarters for the Streights. Some particular Changes are daily expected. An extraordinary Council has been held on the'Ex- presses received from the Admirals Hawke and Boscawen. Notwithstanding the great Height that Admiral Byng it lodg'd in Greenwich Hospital, an Order wai given on Thursday last to have Iron Bars fix'd to all the Windows of his Apartment, and the Chimney of his Room so se- cur'd that any Attempt to escape might be render'd im- possible. There is likewise an additional Guard always with him, and he is not even permitted to go forth to the Necessary- House, having a conveniency in the same Room for that Purpose. Many are of Opinion that his being thus guarded is owing to the Arrival of Col. Jeffreys, the brave Co- Defender of Minorca. We hear that the Garrison in Fort St. Philip lost no more than 300 Men during the Siege, of which ber only 70 were Killed, and the rest taken off by ' Sick' ness. We hear that a Court- Martial will be held in a few Days for the Trial of an Officer for attempting to com- mit Sodomy on two Soldiers. The Nancy, Simms, is arrived at Bristol from Nevis, who parted Company with seventy Sail of Ships bound from Barbadoes for England, under Convoy of the Win- chelsea and Woolwich Men of War, 0n the 3d of August in Lat. 24. 11 fhe Weather being very hazy, and many of the Ships sailing heavy, * The Mary, Wilkinson, and the Prince, Burlinson, both from Sunderland with Coals, having run ashore near the Mouth of Newport Harbour, were carried off by a Pri- vateer, tho' fourteen Guns from the Fort were fired at her. The Mary, Dedro, from Catalonia for Gibraltar, i « taken by a Privateer, and carried into Malaga. The Duke of Tuscany, Cload, from the Streights for London, and a Vessel in Ballast, Name unknown, are taken by a Privateer and Carried into St. Malo. On Thursday Morning early a well dressed middle- aged Man was found dead in the Fields by Bay's- Water beyond Tyburn. His Left Cheek was cut, and there appeared other Marks of Violence on his Body ; by the Wetness of his Apparel it is imagined he must have been dragged out of a Pond, as there is one near the Place where he lay. There were found in his Breeches Pockets Half a Crown and Three Hallpence ; but, notwithstanding this, there is great Reason to believe he was murdered. On Tuesday Night a Shoemaker of Deptford having detected a Sailor in a very indecent Familiarity with his Wife, stabbed him in the Body with a Shoemaker's Knife, so that his Bowels came out, after which the Shoemaker made his Escape ; and it is apprehended the wounded Man will lose his Life, the Surgeon being of Opinion that the Wound is mortal. The Woman has absconded.
