In the mean Time, we underftar. d, that the Gentry and Corporations declare themfelves unanimoufly for D. Erneft Augullus ; and that moft of the Canons are alfo of the fame Mind, judging it moft for the lrt^ reft of the Country ; fo that ' tis expected the Election will be made without Oppofition. From tbe Amfierdam Gazette, Jan. 7. Vienna, Dec. Letters from Adrianople, the 19th pall import, that the Grand Vizier arriv'd t! « ere on the 14th, and was very favourably receiv'd by the Grand Signior, which contradi& s the Report of his being in Difgrace.

On the 26th, 6 Danifh Battallions, as many Pruffian and the like Number of Saxons were drawn up in two Ranks, from the Tribfee Gate to 0 the Camp, over againft the Pruffian Regiment of Colonel Still. The Garrifon niarch'd out at 10 a Clock in the Forenoon.

Thefe 30 Regiments hardly amouut- ed to 1800 Men : Becaufe befides tbe 1000 native Swedes, who were not made Prifoners, and who did not march out till the following Day, above 2000 Sick and Wounded re- main'd in the Town, befides which, a confiderable Num- ber had taken Service among the Danes, before the Sur- render of the Place, and great Numbers were kill'd in the Defence of Ufedom, in our I- affage by the Ifle of Ruden, and in the taking of the Retrenchments and of the Ifle of Rugeit.

Llcrencq. encouraged this traiterousEnterprise. It is, S doubt not, a great - atisfaflion to you to have ob-, . served, that the Powers yori'iritrufted me with for the Prefer- v. ation of the Public's Safety, have been employed in the moft, proper and eifedtial - ManneVj and made ftriftly fubfervient to thofePurpofcs only fbrwhicb yoa intended them; and you mttffc have had the Pleafure to refieft with me, that as. the Mea-. litres taken, for our Defence have been juft and neceiiary, fo is Has plea fed the Divine Providence to blefs them with a Series of fmt,. ible Suicefs : And 1 cannot but take this Opportunity, of doing JuiMce- to the OlScers and Soldiers cf the Army, whofe brave and faithful Difcbarge of their Duty has difap- pointed our Enemies, and contributed fy much to the- Safety of ths Nation. I did hope, that ths Detecting and Preventing the defigned Infurreftjons in form Parts . of the Kingdom, and the Deteat- i ig mothers thofe who had taken- up Arms agiind me, would have put an End to tins Pvebsllion.; but it is plain, that our Enemies, animated by fome fecret Hopes of Affiftance, are ftill endeavouring to fupport this defoerate Undertaking, and the Pretender, as I have reafon to b - lisve, is now landed in-, Scotland. . it is hpwever with Pleafure I cm a: quaint you, that • hptwithftasding thtfc inteftine Commotions, G: ea. t Britain has; in fome metfure, recorer'd is Influence and Reputa- tion abroad. The Treaty for fettling the Barrier for the- Netherlands is now fully concluded between the Emperor and the States General under my Guaranty. The King of Spain has agreed to a Treaty, by which that valuable Branch of our Commerce will be delivered from the nerv Impofition* and Hardfhips to which it was fubjefted by the late Treaties, and will ftand fettled for the future cur ^ a Foot more advantageous and certain than it ever did in the moft flouri filing Time of any of my I'redecefTors; and the Treaty for Renewing all former Alliances between the Crown, of Great Britain and the States General ig.. brought very near to its Conclufion. Gentlemen of the Houfe of Commons, I muft rely on your Affection tome, and your Care and Concern for the Safety of the Nation, to grant me fuch Sup- plies as may enable me to rcftore and to fecure the peace ofthe Kingdom ; and I will order Eftimates of the neceffary fix- psnces to be laid, before you. Among the many unavoidable ill Confequences of this Re- bellion, none af& fts me more fenfibly than that extraordinary Bui- thin which it hasand reuft create to my faithful Subjefts.

Ex- pence incurr'd on this Occafion, My Lords and Gentlemen, It is Matter of the greateft Uneafinefs to me, that the firft Years of my Reign, the whole Courfe of which I wifhed to have tranfmitted to Pofterity, diftinguifh'd by tjie fair . and endearing Marks, of Peace and Clemency, fhould be clouded and overcaft with fo unnatural a Rebel- lion ; which, however impotent and unfuccefsftil a ns of .
