T H E Warwick and Staffordiliire Journal : WITH THE Hiftorv of the HOLY BIBLE. THURSDAY, APRIL 19, 1759. Numb. LXXXVIil. Paris, April 6. * HE Count de la Marck, by his Induftry and Addrefs, has in a fhort time regulated three important Affairs at Madrid. He began by diffi- pating the Clouds which feem'd to threaten Difturbanct to the Tranquillity of Europe : He afterwards concluded the Marriage of Madam with the Infant Don Philip ; and to complete all, he has juft obtain'd the Acceflion of the King of Spain to the Treaty of Vienna. The Union of this Court and that of Madrid becomes clofer every D, y than other ; it difcovers itfelf on all Occafions, and particularly in the Marks of Confideration that their Ambaf- fadors reciprocally receive at Paris and ivxidrid. When either the Marquis de la Mina or his Lady appeer in the Apart- ments of the King or Queen, fhe folding Doors are always open'd for them. Car- dinal ce Fleury, whenever he is with the Marquis, always takes Care to give him the right Hand ; and his Eminence has given Orders, that whenever this Ambal- fador would fpeak to him, to introduce him immediately into his Clofet. It's re- ported, that the Duke de Fieury and the Marquis- d'Anxi, Nephews of the Cardi- nal, will be made Grandees of Spain of . the firrt Clafs. Letters from Conftantiriople, by way. of Venice, advife, that the Grand Signior was refolv'd to go to Adrianopie, to be more readily inform'd of the Motions of the Army in Hungary; but had deferr'd his Departure to examine fome new Propor- tions for concluding a Peace, which the French Ambaffador had receiv'd Orders to make him. It's thought , that the Kifler A* ga, who llrongly follicits for the recal- ling Count Bonneval, will at length fucceed. The Troops, which have been fer> t to Smyrna againft Sary- Bey- Oglou, have block- ed up a Caftle, into which that Rebel with his People had retir'd. They write from Peterfburg, that upon Ad'viee that the Ottoman Fleet deligned for the Black Sea is already fitted out, and that the Bafhavv Gianunj Coggia has taken on board 150 Pieces of heavy Can- non and feveral Mortars, the Ruffian Court has fent Orders to Vice Admiral Bredal, to be upon his Guard, and to Lieutenant General Stoffelen, to repair to Afoph, and re- inforce the Garrifon of that Fortrefs to the Number of 12,000 Regular Troops, and ijoo Don Coffacks. Venice, April 4. We are affur'd that the Grand Signior has order'd the Siege of Afoph to be undertaken by Sea and Land; and his Highnefs has declar'd, that rather than the Troops to be employ'd in it fhould want for any Thing, he would pay all the Expences of the Siege out of the Treafure of the Seraglio: The Grand Signior has alfo promifed connderable Gratifications to all the Bafhaws, Officers, and Soldiers, that are to be employ'd in that Expedition, if they take the Town: But we forefee that it will coft a great many Men, inafmuch as the Ruffians have vaftly augmented the Fortifications of that Place, and keep a numerous Garrifon in it. Vienna, April 4. They write from Hun- gary, that the Bafhaw of Petlky, who was marching with 6000 Men to chaltife the Inhabitants of the Country about Kutfchay, for having two Years ago put themfelves under the Protedlion uf the Emperor, fell into an Ambufh, which thofe People had lain for him in the Defiles of their Moun- tains, and was cut in Pieces with all his Troops. Fribourg-, April 1. The Battallions of Salm and Welzegg, in Garrifon here, have receiv'd the lalt Orders to begin their March for Hungary. There has nothing of Importance happened in the County of Havenflein fince the laft: Accounts we gave, except that one of the principal Mutineers has been taken up and be- headed. v" Warfaw, April 1. It's reported here, that the Minifter fent here by the Porte, has Orders to reprefent to his Majeily, that if th? Ruffian Troops fhould pais through the Poliffi Territories, the Porte could not help, in fuch Cafe, caufing Troops to enter into the Dominions of the Republick, in order to chafe its Enemies. Madrid, March 24. The Scarcity of Provifions here- daily encreafes : The Coun- try People are fo affedted with it, that more than a thoufand of them, to prevent being ftarv'd, have been employ'd at the New Palace. Mr. Keene, a few Days fince, pre- fented to his Majeily Mr. Abraham Caftres, fecond Plenipotentiary from the Jritifh Court for concluding a folemn Treaty with Spain. He afterwards prefented him fo the Marquis de la Quadra, who affur'd him, that the Conferences ffiould open as foon as his Britannick Majefty's Inftruftions ar- riv'd. Cologn, April 10. They write from Manheim, th,. t the Marriage of his High- nefs the Prince of Sultzbach with the Princefs of Sultzbach, his firft Coufin, and Grandaughter to the Ele& or Palatine, is concluded. Tbt following Account of the late Aflion in Corfica, is taken from the Utrecht Ga- zette, of the l^ th of April, N. S. ltiz. Five Battallions of French Troops that were quartered at Calvi, having join'd fome Genoefe Troops the whole BoJy, confut- ing of 4000 Men, commanded by the Co- lonel of the Regiment of Baffigny and M. de Villemur, began their March with four Pieces of Cannon and a large Mortar Piece, in order to attack the Poft of Monte Mag- giore, a Place advantageoufly fituated, tlia' there are no more than eighty Houfes in it. On the 10th of March tuey began to play a Battery againft if, and throw fome Bombs into it; a Detachment of the Rebels ap- pearing on the Hill, the French advanced up and attack'd them very brifkly; but af- ter Skirmilhing together about two Hours, the Rebels feigned to give Ground, and at length took to their Heels, feemingly in good Earneft: The French and Genoefe were fo encourag'd at this, that they ven- tur'd to draw nearer to Monte Meggiore, and feized upon it without meeting with any Refiftance; but while they thought themfelves fecure in their new Poft, the Corficans who had feign'd to retire, and part of whom had hid themfelves in the Gardens and Floufes of the Place, appeared again all of a fudden, and attacked thej; fo furioufly, tbat they were oblige way to Numbers, and abandon th Conquefts entirely, & c. Tho' here is no Account of the 1 Lofs, yet we hear that it is much to the Lofs which the French' ftain'd ; and even adds, that the behind them their Cannon and Boil part of their Ammunition and and that the Corficans have taken foners, and amongft them feverai I and French Officers.

Wherein Ridicule, properly applied, is defended. The Unrighteoufnefs and Un- charitablenefs of Mens damning their Neighbours for Opinions for which Gop will not damn them. The Light of per- fonal Judgment is vindicated ; and it is Ihewed that a Man may be a g od Church- man, without fubferibing all the Church Articles; which is a Yoke on many honeft Clergymen. The Notion of Orthodoxy is ftated ; and that meer Opinions render no Man acceptable to God. The Scripture Divinity of Jefus Chrift is vindicated ; and the numerous Abfurdities of the pretended Ortho ' ox Scheme expofed. The egregious Folly of reafoning againft Reafon. Laugh- ing at Men's invented Myfteries in Reli- gion defended. The Change of a Man's Opinion upon Evidence, juftified. The horrid Confequences of the Doftrine of abfolute Eleftion and Reprobation iairly deduced. The Nature of Original Sin opened. The Doftrine of God's free Grace, and Mens free Agency, { hewed to be confifterit.
