The Penny London Morning Adverrifer, NO. 1Q2, From FR I D A Y , A U G U S T IO, to MO N D A Y , AU G U S T 13, 1 7 4 4 - Continuation of a Voyage to the South- leas, the fleet wider the Command of Commodore A N- 5 O N. IS) N ths iotlr, about Ten at Night, we fell in with two fmall Iflands, v. hich about eighto'Clock the nest Morning bore W. N. W. This Morning we loft Sight of the Pearl and Severn. By the Compafs we imagine ourfelves to be in the Lat. 54. 00. South. Some of the Officers on Board are of Opnion, that they are the Illands which Jay off Brewer's Streights, Lat. 54. 50. South. Long. 84 : 56 Weft. The n t h and 1 * th Days a more violent Storm nevet blew from the Heaven^. The " Wind was ft 11 Weft, and fuch a S. vefl was never feen. Abundanceof the Seamenon Board our Ships were greatly terrified, declaring they nev. r faw a 4k* a rife fo high, notwithftanding they ad L*# r'a! Times failed in that Part of the Ocean. The Wind blew fo violently on the i i t h at Midnight, that not a Soul on Board us ever e x p e n d to fee Day- Light. Our Ship was very tight, or Ihe mult have gone to the Bottom ••, but our brave Commodore, his wellexperienced Officers, and brave Seamen, got th; better of " Wind and Weather, and " kept her above Water, tfro' her Mails, Rigging, and Sails were greatly damaged. On the 13th in the Morning we faw nothing of tne Pearl or Severn. Being under Reeft Courfes, the Commodore bore down under the Wager's Lee Quarter, and fpoke with her. His Honour asked Capt. Cheap, I f his Capf enter was returned from on ' hoard the G'oucef'ter. The Captain reply'd. ' No Sir, he is « not and I u- o-. der that Capt. Mitchell « foot Id detain him, when he knows that I <• want him on Board my own Ship.' The Commodore told him, he would fpec. k with thi Gloucefter, and order him on ' Board. The Wager s People gave a difmal Relation of the Hardships that they had undergone in the Storm. About Six o'Clock the Morning before, the Gunner of the Wager being OA the Watch, and holding on the Topfail- Hallyards to Windward, there brokeaSeaon the Shig, which carried him over the Wheel, bilged the Cutter, and canted her off the Sheet's Bottom up athwart the Barge ; it a! fo half filled the Long Boat 5 on this the Boatfwain was for heaving the Cutter over board, which, however, was prevented by fome of the other Officers, who informing the Captain ( who was at this Time fick in his Cabin) of the Boatf^ ain's Defign, the Captain ordered his Lieuteisanr, and fame others of his Officers, to ufe all poffible Means tofave the Cutter, which was happily executed, the Lieutenant having got the Cutter in her Place, fcuttled the Long Boat, and got the Spritfail- Yard and Jib- Boom in. The 14th the Commodore asked Capt. Cheap of the Wager, why he did not fet his Topfail, and make more Sail ? He replyed, " My Sails and Rigging are all gone, my " Tackling broke fore and aft, and greatelt " Part of my People fick ; but I will f « ,- t them " as foon as poffible.'' The Commodore faid, SPray d>, and make, the left Sail you can after me. On I4the h the Weather was a little calm, on which the Gloucefter hoilted out their Boat, and fent the Carpjnterof ths Wager on board her ; he imrslediatly waited 011 the Captain, who ordered him to look on the Cnain Plates and Chains, to give his Opinion of the Mail's going away. The Carpenter, after having ix amined them, as ordered, told the Captain the Chain Plates were a'l broke j on which he ihook his Head. ( T o be Continued) Thejiijiory of the Town of TOURNAY, coHtjnjied from our laft. ' T ' H I S was the Condition of Tournay, as ' Ring Chilperick the Firft of France left it, in the Year of our Lord 587, the laft Year of his Life, when having compleated its Inclofure, as the laft Token of his good Will to ( it, he declared it a noble Town, and gave ir all the Privileges of a City, with this Coat of Arms, Azure, a Ca/ tle triple- towered Argent. It continued fo in , the fame State, and in the Power oi ' he Princes of the fame Nation, without any further Addition or Change befalling ir, either in its Building or. Government, till the Days of Charles the Second, firnamed The Bald, King of France, and'Emperor of Germany 5 who having lharp War, in his Time, with the Danes and Normans, that were then come fro n the North, in the Defign to make an Irruption into France, in the Year of our Lord 880, they befieged and took Tournay in their Way, and deftroyed it with Fife; and Sword. It lay in Ruins for thirty Years, that is, till the Year 910, when, in the Days of Charles the Fourth, firnamed The Simple, King of Frarce, ' it was begun to be built,- and, in the Space of a few Years, it came t o be in as good a Condition as formerly. ( To be Continued. ) T From the L O N D O N G A Z E T T E . Berlin, Jugujl 10N. S. TratiJZatien of the King of ' Prvjfia's Manij'eRo. H E King thinks himfelf obliged to inform- Europe of the Meifures, which the prefent Conjunftu'res oblige him to follow, for the Publick Good and Tranquility. His Majefty not being able to look with Indifference any longer upon the Troubles that defolate Germany, after " wing tryed in vain, all Ways of bringing about a Reconciliation, finds himfelf obliged to make Ufe of the For ces which God has given him, towards reeftablifhing Peace and Order, and for reltoring the Laws to their Vigour, and the Head of the Empire to his Authority. Since the Succefs which the Hungarian Troops had in Bavaria, the Queen of Hungary tar from proceeding with the Equity and Moderation which became her, has treated the Emperor's Hereditary Countries with infinite Hardheartednefs and Cruelty. This Princefs and her Allies formed Defigns unmeafurably ambitious, the pernicious " End whereof was, to put Fetters for ever upon the German Liberty, tin doing which has been, for above an Age paft, the principal Objedl of the dangerous Policy of the Houfe of Auftria. One need only examine the Fa£ ts which have paiSed thefe two laft Years, in ordei to judge of the Malign'ty of the Intentions of the Court of Vienna, and to fee clearly, that, in all her Proceedings, Ihe has adled in a Manner ent i r e l y contrary to the Laws and Conftitutions of the Empire. Germany has feen itfelf over- run with Foreign Troops. They have been fubfifted to the great Detriment of Neutral Princes of the Empire.. They have been marched, without making previoufly ths cuftoiuary Requisitions, The Queen of Hungary has concluded Alliances, to r. Jemnny certain Powers lor the extraordinary Succours which they have affvrded her 5 and thufe Indemnifications have confided as well in Fiefs of the Empire, as in Hopes given with Relation to a t t a i n Bi/ hopricks. The Generals of that Princefs have attempt' ed feizing by Force fo a e Imperial Towns; her Min ft- rs have threatned fome Electors, and have endeavoured to feduce others, and to turn, by thofe Means, this Republic!:, compef. d of fo many Sovereigns, and whom r. otnirig but their Union enabled hitherto to refill the Shocks which have fo often indangered ir. How great a Contempt has been put upon Publick Faith, in the Infraftion of the Ca} i: ulation Braur. au, and in the A ttack of the Imperial Troops intrenched under the Neutral Imperial T o wr. s, and tin ! ertheFcrtreffesof the Empire, and even in forcing them to quit the Borders- of the Empire, whereof their Mailer is the Head ? Without tak'tig Notice, t! at it may very well be reckoned a direct Affr; Stand Contempt upon the Imperial Dignity and Majelly, to allow the Officers of the Queen of Hungary's Troops to treat it with Indignity, as there are but too many Examples of their doing. In a Word, to crown all the Infults offered by the Court Of Vienna to the Majefty of ths Roman Empire, one need only read the Protefts of that Court, delivered in to the DiMature of the ElcSor of Mentz, whereby the Queen of Hungary declares the Election of the Emperor void to all Interfsand Purpofes, though made unanimoufly, aad pretends that the prefent Dyer of Frankfort, is illegal there] y endeav uring to withdraw all the States ol the Empire from the Obedience they owe to the I k a i - whom they have elected • So n. any Fadls, and fo many Proceedings, openly contrary to the Honour and to the Glory of the German Name, and to the Conftirutipns of the Germanick Body, clearly enough denote, that the Defign of the Court of Vienna, to ufurp, in Favour of a foreign Prince, without any Pofilfliops in Germany, the fupreme Digsity devolved, by the unanimous and free Choice of all the German Nation, upon the molt ferene Eleflo.- of Bavaria. Thcfe are Attempts, which it is inconfiftent witk me Honour and the Dignity of every Eleflor, and of every Prince of Germany, to tolerate any longer 5 and it would be a horrid Bafenefs in the facred Members of that Auguft College, invefted, from Time immemorial, with the Authority of ele£ ling their own Head, to fuffer the Defpotifm and the Violence with which the Queen « 1 Hungary would force this Right from them, in fo ignoaiinioufly oppreffii. g his Imperial Majefty. It is not to the Emperor that the Queen do^ s the Injury, but to thofe who have elected him, and whom this Princefs defpifes to fuch a Degree, as to believe them inienfible to their own Honour, and capable of fo great a Weaknefs, as not to fupport, in the Perfon of his Imperial Majefty the moft noble of their Prerogative. The King has no particular difpute with the Queen of Hungary. He has no Pretenfions upon her : He defires nothing for himfelf, and enters no otherwife than in Quality of an Auxiliary into a Quarrel which concerns the Liberties of the Empire 0" ly j and the open War, which the Queen of Hungary has lately declared aga; nlt Germany, by the Hoftilities which her Troops have committed there, would be a Reafcm fufficienr, if there wereno others to juftify xhe Conduft of his Majefty. If the King thinks hirrifelf aft prifenf obliged, for thefe Reafons,. to take Violent Meafures, it is not without R.- grct, nor without having firft t . i sd every Method of Recor. otliation. He ma " a Steps towards obtaining it with the King of England, when that Prince was encamped a : Hanau. — T i l - Emptor too declared, at the fame Time, that, for the Sake of Peace, he would for e v j r renounce ail the Pretentions which he had tmcn t . e Houfe of Auftiia, upon Condition of the Reftifution of his Hereditary Dominions. Thefe advantageous and raofl moderate Terms were fl- itly rejected by the F n g l i lh Mi niiler ; a fufficient Proof that the Intention of the King of England was not to reltore Peace to the Empire, but rather to make his Advantage of its 1 ' roubles. The King did afterwards offer his Mediation jointly with that of the Empire, to the Maritime Powers, in order to put an End ro this fatal War. But the Republic]: of Holland, being fenfible of the O'oftacles which ihe i Would meet with from the SfifFnefs of the Courts of Vienna and London, declined it in a pretty categorical Manner. H i s Mnjefty al ways full of the fame Zeal, and employing himfeif with the fame Activity in evtry T h i n g which might re- cftab! iih the Repofe of Germany, thought, that, making jail and equitable Propofals of Peace, direftly to the Queen of Hungary, would be the ihorteft Method of manifeftina his falutafyDefigns. ' 1 he Propofals thas- were made at Hanau, were repeated at Vienna. The Empe> or, who means nothing but the Good of the Empire, offered his Cpufent to every Thing ; and this magnanimous Prince; like a true Father of his Country, was determined to facrifice to it his own Interefts. % A generous Action 1 which for ever juftifies the Choice which was made of h; m. But the more Moderation the Emperor f h e w i d , the more vifible was the inflexible H- iughtinfifs of the Queen of Hungary. Therefore that Princefs ought t>. blame the defpotiek Maxims of her own Council only, which rajfes up new Allies to her Enemies. But if flie attacks the Germanick Liberties, fhe roufss the Defenders of them. And as ( he undertakes to ftrip the principal Members of the Empire of their Rights, / he ought to think i t j u f t for them to make u f c o f t h e Me ns which i h e obliges them, to make Choice of for their Support. The Race of thofe ancient Ger* mans, who did for fo miny Ages defend their Country and their Liberties, againft all the Majefty of the ancient Roman Empire, iiill fubhfts, and will defend rhem with the fame Zeal at this Day, againft thofe who dare to attack them. This is what appears by ti e I. eague ' of Franckfort, wherein the molt refpedled Princes of Germany have united themfeves to oppofe its D e f i n i t i o n . The King has joined himfeif with them, judging, that it is the Duty and Intereft of every Member of the Empire, to maintain tke Syltem thereof, and to afiift the Weak againft the Oppreffions of the Mighty. His Majefty thinks that the rmift noble and the moft worthy Ufe which he can make of the Forces which God has entrufted him with, is, to employ them in the Support of his Country, which the Queen of Hungary would enilave ; to avenge the Honour and the Rights of all the Electors, which that Princefs would forcibly deprive thern of 5 to afford a powerful Affiftance to the Emperor, to fupport him in all his Rights, and upon that Throne, from which i'j. t Queen of Hungary would pull him down. In u Word, the King demands nothing, and the Q j e f t i o n is not about his perfonal Intereft; but Ids Majefty has Recourfe to Arms for no * viifr Reafons but that of feftoring. Liberty to the Empire', Peace to the Emperor, and Tranquility to Europe. - F O R E I G N N E VY S.. Warfav, July 24. The' opening of ths Ge era! Dyet of Grodno is fix'd for the 24 h of next M'viirh.
