A t Landfhut the Auftrians lately furprifed, with fuperior Force, a Detachment of four hundred Horfe, of which they made eighty- five Prifoncrs; but the Pruffians immediately re- occupied that Poll. The King of Pruffia has detached Lieutenant- General Ziethen, with a considerable Body of Men, to reinforce the Army againft the Ruffians, of which he will take the Command, as General Goltz died at Glogau on the 30th of June. The Grand Ruffian Army, which was affembled at Pofcn the 13th, decamped from thence on the 26th of June, and feem to be marching towards Silefia. General Ziethen, in order to watch their Motions, is advanced into Poland ; fo that we are in daily Expectation of fomc important Event. General Tottleben with his Corps follows the great Ruffian Army. General RomanzOw, who is encamped at Koflin in Pomerania, with a Corps of 25,000 Men, waits only for the Arrival of the Ruffian Fleet to begin the Siege of Colberg, under the Cannon of which Place the Prince of Wurtemberg is entrenched, with a confiderable Body of Men.

General Ehrenfchwurdt, who is to command the Swedifh Army, is not yet let out from Stockholm; however, the Governmentof Sweden haveordered fix Men of War to be equipped at Carlfcroon, which are to join the Ruffian Fleet before Colberg. HAGUE, [ Holland] July 3. We have the following Account from the Allied - Army, dated at Lunderen near Unna, June 30, 1761. The Hereditary Prince, after having left Count Kiehnanfegge at Ham, marched to Kirckdenkern, and from thence, on the iStii Inft. to Sundcrn, where he encamped on the Right Wing of the Grand Arm)", Which had advanced towards Werle, the Caftle whereof, in which Major Raal, a Heffian, commanded, with a Garrifon of 200 Men in it, was attacked the Day before by the Enemy, whocould not takeittho' they cannonaded itfor fome Time.

We ( hortiy expect fomc important News from Silefia, divers Bodies of Laudohn's Army being put in Motion, in order to join fome AuftrianTroops in the Upper Silefia, and then go to meet on the Frontiers of Poland the Diviiion of Ruffian Troops led by Gen.

Wc have juftreceived an Account of theEle& rcfs Palatine's having been brought to Bed of a Son, but that he lived only Time enough to be baptized. From Paderborn we hear, that General Sporken had been oblig'd to abandon Warbourg upon the Approach of Marlhal Broglio's Army, and had loft, in his Retreat, fome Pieces of Cannon, and a very ( mail Number of Men. The Maflhal had thereupon fent a Detachment by Brakel to Steinheim, on the Road to Hamelen; and hnd likewife pofted Troops at Hoxter and Corvey on the Wefer; but the Light Troops of the Allies were in Pofleffion of Hpltzminden.

Camp at HEMMERDEN, July 6.

Letters from Rochelle of the 6th paft, advife, that on the 3d an Englifh Fleet of fix Ships, three Frigates, and four other Ships anchored within Cannon- Shot of the Ille of Aix; that they were employed in founding in the Neighbourhood of Rochelle, and the Ifles of Rheeand Oleron; that on the 5th a Dutch Ship left Rochelle, the Pilot of whom was examined by the Englilh: At his Return he informed the Rochellers of their Strength, and that belides the Ships abovementioned, three more were ftationed beyond the Ille of Rhee; ' it ar. d they conclude wit h telling us, that they have in that Ifland fix found Tmpoffible to bring up the Cannon, and we were forced to lay 1 Battalions under the Chevalier d'Aulan, on whofe Bravery and that Attempt afide; upon which we continued our March along P r ^ . e n " t h t , f c a n deI , e r K l\ the Enemy's Rear, and without any Interruption, or Lofs, took Poft on thcirother Flank; Prince Ferdinand placing his Head- Quarters at Dortmund. On the 2d the Enemy began to attack our Piquets, under Lieut. Gen. Watgenau, with a Corps of 10,000 Men; but feeing that four Battalions of the Corps under Lord Granby advanced to fupport them, they retired, but loft upon that Occafion M. de Pedeinont, Brigadier, who commanded the Attack, befides a Colonel and Major killed, and a Lieutenant- Colonel wounded and taken. On our Side we loft two Heffian Officers, and three private Men. On the 3d our whole Army advanced again upon the Enemy, who retired immediately behind Werle, placing the Caftle of that Place, which ftill continues in our Potfeffion, before their Right Flanks; and occupied the very lame Camp where we had been a few Days before; and our Army then encamped at this Place, in the Face of the Enemy. Yeilerdiy Prince Ferdinand reconnoitred the Enemy's Army, with an Intention of attacking them, but found them lituated too l'trohgly for fuch an Attempt. We hear that the chief Objeftion to a Sufpenfion of Arms is the French Court's Refufal to evacuate Nieuport, and Oftend, of which the Britifli Court, from a Regard to Treaty, will not allow them to keep Poffeffion without the Confent of the Dutch ; and it was on this Occafion that Sir Jofeph Yorke was fent over to Holland. By a private Letter from Belleifle we are informed that the whole Number of French Troops in the Citadel when it was inverted was 2600 ; whereof 922 were killed, wounded, or made Prifoners during the Siege; the Remainder, being 1678, have been lince embarked for France. Extraft of Orders given at Belleifle, July 1, 1761. Major- General Hodgfon has the greatejl Pleasure to acquaint the Officers and Soldiers under his Command, with his Majejfy's entire Satisj'aSion, in the Spirit, Patience, and Chearfulnefs, with ' which they ha- ve fufiained the Fatigues of this Siege. The Charming Nancy, Harris, which is arrived at Belleifle from London, is the firft trading Ship that has gone thither fince the Reduction of that Illand ; her Loading conlilted of Provifions of all Kinds, befides Cioathing, which were foon purchafed by the Inhabitants ; and it is faid that the Profits to the Freighters amounted to 30 per Cent. A Squadron of Men of War, Frigates, and Sloops, are to affemble in the Downs, and Parts adjacent, to watch the Motions of the French at Dunkirk. Two grand Councils were fummoned to meet this Day on Affairs of Importance. Sir Jofeph Yorke arrived Yefterday from the Hague. We hear he will return back to Holland in a few Days, ind proceed immediately from thence to Augfburg. We hear an Ambafl'ador extraordinary is expefted here from his Portuguezc Majefty upon a Commiffion of Importance. A Dye is preparing by Mr. Yeo, his Majefty's Engraver, for ftrilcing the Medals, that are to be diftributed at the Coronation. Since our Conqueft of Canada large Commiffions are fent here from Flanders for Beaver and various other Skins, to fupply France and other Parts, and we even export this Produce of North America to Ruffia, as that Country confumes more of fome Kind of Skins, and Skins of better Quality, thin itfelf affords, A Vefi'el which arrived at Marfeilles 011 the 16th paft from the Levant, brought a Letter from a Capuchin Miffionary, dated at Salonica, April 9, 1761, of which the following is an Extraft. For two Years paft the Almighty feerns to have ftretched out his avenging Arm over thej'e unhappy Countries. Firft, a Plague carried off above 200,000 Souls. Seven fucceffive Earthquakes afterwards overthrew almoft all the Cities of the Province : The Capital where I am is a Heap of Rubbijh. The fertile Plains in the Neighbourhood, which rendered it the moft delicious SpJt in the Univerfe, are converted into a barren Defart. To add to our Calamities, at a Time when our Hearts were dying within us by thefe / hocking Sights, a fr'ghtful Phenomenon on the 8 th Inft. mcreafed our Terror not r little : At Sun- Jet the whole Heavens appeared on fire; innumerable Flajbes of Lightning, Trains of Fire, and a fuffotating Smell of Brimftone and Bitumen Jeemed to be the Prelude of the general Conflagration. About the Middle of the Night this frightful Appearance ceaj'ed at once with tvjenty Claps of Thunder, of which the burftino oj thouj'ands of Bombs over our Heads would be but a faint Image. Tranflation of the Speech which M. deBoreel, the Dutch Ambaffador, made on the 20th ult. to the King, when he had a private Audience to deliver his Credentials. S I R E , " Their High Mightinefies my Lords and Matters have fomany Motives to intereft thcmfelves in the Fate of thefe Kingdoms, that your Majefty's Acceffion to theCrowngavethem thehigheft Pleafurc; of which I am commanded to inform your Majeltv, and at the fame Time t< 3 allure you of their rffpcfl^ il and inviolable- Attachment ti your Rcyal Perton, and of the Sioceri « . y of their Wifhes for the Duration and Profperity of aReign which you have fo happilybegun. The gracious Aflurances which your Majefty hath already given of your Friendfhip to the Republic excited the warmeft Gratitude. Nothing could have given greater Confolation under the Lofs of the King your Msjefty's Grandfather. The Republic will always regret in him not only a faithful Ally, but a true Friend, who( e A f - fection never varied, and who added to the Qualities of a greatPrince that Integrity which would have done Honour to a private Man. What a high Satisfaction is it for their High Mightineffes to find in your Majelty's Perfon all thofe Qualities, which whilft they fo glorioufly diftinguiihed ycur illuftrious Anceftors, made their People happy, and ftrongly attached the Republic to them. Whatgreat Reafon have their High Mightineffes to promife themfelves the moft intimate Union between two Nations who are bound by fo many commoin Interefts to concur mutually in each other's Advantage, and to difpife the Suggeftions of a miftaken Jealoul'y ? As their High Mightinelfes are fully fenfible of the Value of this Union, they moft ardently defire to maintain and ftrengthen it. Being charged by them to give your Majefty Affurances of this, and filled with the fame Sentiments myfelf, I ( hall do my utmoft to anfwer the Choice they have condefcended to make of me, and to merit the Continuance of that Favour with which your Majelly honoured me before you aicended the Throne. I flatter myfelf that the Gratitude with which it infpired me will appear from the whole of my Conduit to be equal to my profound Reipcft for your Majefty's Perfon and your eminent Qualities." We hear from Kefwii k, in Cumberland, that lately an old Maid of that Place, went to the Poor- houfe on a Vifit to a Bachelor, who was an old Acquaintance, and reduced to the Parifh Maintenance. After talking over fome former Matters, lhe told him, her AfTeftion to him was fuch, that if he would marry her, lie might partake of what fhe had laved, which would keep them independent, and make their latter Days happy. He immediately confented, and they were married a few Days fince.— On looking over the Regifter, their Ages amounted to 151. " An JE N I G~ M ~ A. ON rural Plains I liv'd in humble State; But what ef'capes the murdering Hand of Fate! Of Life depriv'd, I wanton'd many a Round, Thence gain'd a Name, and foon Employment found. Now lee me hufy'd; bathing, drinking, lweating; But feldom ' tis you'll fee me fond of eating. My Liquor too, voracious Beaft you'll think, I difembogue, and then again I drink. What Wonder then, if, when the Battle rage, Sometimes you fee me furioufly engage: For, taking head, I ftrive to end the Strife, And quell the Flames that haunt domeftic Life. Elate on Steed exalted, fee me ride, My brazen hoftile Foe hard by my Side; Hear loud Huzzas my merry March proclaim, T o end what Force effefled, not by Shame. But all thefe Services avail me not, For unrewarded I mull go to pot; Yet what I've dranlc— but hold, I ( peak too plain--- Is fweetly welcom'd to the rural Swain.

T H E Bible is in reality the only Book abfolutely neceflary for Man to know, as it abounds with Precepts to conduit him happily thro* this World, and to eternal Felicity in the next; and therefore, the Study of the Holy Scriptures is a Matter of effential Duty, and ought to be the Care and Concern of every Chriflian. The Holy Scriptures teach us the true Method of appioaching God, namely, with, pure Heaits, and chafte Defires : They recommend that admirable Virtue of Humility, which fweetens the Tempers of Men, and renders them, courteous and obliging : They lay down the beft Rules for the Peace and Quiet of Mankind ; for overlooking one another's Faults ; for patient Suffering of Offences; for loving our Enemies, and imitating God ill all Manner of Goodnefs. Such is that amiable Religion which Chiift has revealed to Mankind; fo noble aie thofe Precepts ; fo benevolent thofe Principles ; fo interefting thofe Truths which are contained in the Bible ; the Study, therefore, of that facred Volume is a Duty that fhould engage the Attention of every Perfon that is willing to pleafe his Creator, and fave his own Soul. We muft lay up the Words of ibis Book in our Heart, and in our Soul; nve mufi leach thtm to our Children, Jf caking of them - when we fit in our Hcufes, and - when vie walk by the Way, ivbin toe lie doivn, and luben nut rife up. A Solicitude t ® remove every Difficulty ; to afcertain the true Meaning of feveral obfeure Paffages ; to corrtdt the Errors of the prefent Tranflation ; to open this Fountain of living Water, and direift its Currents for the general Cood, has furnifhed me with abundant Reafon for offering the following Work to the Public, which contains the Quinteffence of all the beft Note.? of the beft Commentators on the Bible.

The Diligence with which the Danifli Officers and others in the Service of that Court are railing Recruits in this City and at Altena, and the adjacent Places, puzzles us much: The Syftem of fhe Dnnifb Court is a Myftery which Time alone can unravel.

Declaration of the Moft ChriftianKing, delivered to the Diet of the Empire by his Minifter, the Baron de Mackau. " THE King, my Matter, having been required, at the Beginning of this War, by feveral Princes of the Empire, to taKe UDon himl'elf, in Conjun& ion with the King of Sweden, the Execution of the Guaranty of the Treaties of Weftphalia, noticed to the States affembled at Ratifbon, in the Month of April 1757, what weri his Motives, and what Conduft he propofed to hold wdien he took that Charge upon him, of the Weight of which he was very fenfihie. " The Prefervationof the three Religionseftablifhed in Germany, the Support of the Germanic Laws and Conftitution, and thereftoring Peace on a folid and equitable Footing, were the Objects to obtain which his Majefty was willing to make the greateft Efforts and very conilderable Sacrifices. " His Majefty, in concert with his Swedifh Majefty, hathfince employed every Method to attain to " this falutary End; But he Icplorcd the Calamities under which Germany groaned; and if he was under a Neceffity of takingup Arms for its Defence, he thinks it no lefs proper to lay them down when he has performed all that could be required in Juttice from a Zeal fo difinterefted. If it was with this falutary View that his Majefty, jointly with the Kingof Sweden and the other Powers his Allies, propofed to the Courts of London and Berlin to pave the Way, by common Confent, to a Peace, by opening a Congrefs, for . whichthe City of Augfburg was thought moft convenient: And as their Britannic ani Pruffian Majefties agree to a Propofal fo comformable to Humanity and his Majcfty's pacific Views, he thinks himl'elf obliged to notify it to the States of the German Empire, agreeably to what was done when he found himfelf under a Necellity of executing the Guaranty. 1 He at the fame Time declares, that during the Cottrfe of the Negotiation he will not lofe Sight of the Motives which determined him to take Part in the War. The Princes and States of the Empire may depend on the formal Affurances which his Majefty hath already given, and which he now repeats; and he defires that the. Emperor and Empire would concur with him in reftoring the public Tranquillity." RATISBON, June 12, 1761. Since tiiis Declaration was delivered, the Germanic Body con. fider thenifelSes as invited to the Congrefs ; which they afcribe to the Couitof Verfailles. The fame Day, a Declaration of the very fame Import was delivered to the Diet by the Swedifh Minifter.

From ajl the Cirqumftances that tranfpire concern* ing this Embaffy, it is probable, that Lord Egremont will make the moft brilliant Figure of any publick Minifter that fliall appear there. The Caroline and Fubbs Yatches are ready for failing, on board one of which, it is faid, his Excellency Major General Yorke will embark the latter End of next Week for Holland, on his Way fcl' the Congrefs at Aufburgh: On board the other, it is expected', the Noblemen and Ladies going over to Mecklenbourg, will embark at the fame Time at Harwich. By an Article of the Capitulation of Fort Palais at Belleifle, it is plain they had fome Regard to the Fifhery; and by fome Perfons arrived from thence, we are aflured, that they have as great a Fifhery for Pilchards," as tliey have at the Land's End of England ; which they ufed to fend up the Straits, and to other places. The Bone Gold and Silver Lace Manufactory, which has been out of Faftiion a great Number of Years, is now reviving again, a great Number of the moft brilliant Patterns being'already betpoke.
