Mr. Woodward is arrived in London from Dublin, and Mr. Mossop is Daily expected from thence, in order it is l'aid, to raise Theatrical Recruits for the ensuing Campaign ; which, itisthought, willprovea very warm one, the latter having separated from the former, and gone over to Smock-Alley-House, of which he has taken on him the Command. We hear from. Shroplhire, that an Oak was lätely felled near Ludlow in that County, the Dimenfions of which are as follow, viz. 36 Tons of Timber, 42 Cords of Wood, 200 Park Pales, and 4 Cords and a half of Brackets. A Bough broke off before the Tree was felled, which weighed Seven Tons and a half. Two Men were employed a Month in stocking it. The Tree was valued at 138I. The scveral Regiments of Militia, at present em-bodied, will be encamp'd this Summer with the Regulär Troops in different Parts of the Kingdom. The Ann'd Ships in the River Thames, lately in the Government's Service, are gone into Dock to be läid up for the present. Yesterday being the Anniversary of bis Majesty's Accession to the Crown of these Realms, the same was observed by ringing of Beils, fifing the Cannon in St; James's Park and the Tower at Noon, and the Evening concluded with Bonsires and Illuminations. His Majesty entered into the 341 Year of his Reign. The Filou Privateer of Dunkirk, of fix Carriagc and fix Swivel Guns, and another final! Privateer Cutter, were taken by two of our Cutters the 19r.l1 Inst, and carried into Yarmouth. The Vengeance Frigate, Capt. Nightingale, now at Portsinouth, is under sailing Orders, going Express to Quebec. , . The French Ministry are negotiating at the Palatine Court for a Body of Troops to supply the Place of the Wurtemberghers. Leiters from Frankfort ad vife, that Marlhai Brog-lio had received Orders to leave that City, and en-camp with his whole Army between Freidberg and Gießen, and there wait for the Enemy. Two hundred Persons, redeemed from Slavery at Algiers, are arrived at Gibraltar. It is reported, that the French, in passing over the Ice in their March to Quebec, lost tlie most Part of their battering Cannon by the Ice breaking under them, and likewisc that ibme Men and Horles were lost by the Accident. We hear that Col. Burton, who wasseverely wound-ed on the Monangahela, and at the taking of Quebec, has distinguiihed himsclf greatly in the last unfortunate Battle. It is remarkable, that this Gentleman has been in every Action during this War in America, and always signalized himself very particularly. From the LONDON GAZETTE, June 24.

Clerke, Commander of His Majesty's Sloop the Basilisk, gives an Account, in his Letter of the iyth Instant, of his having taken and brought into Falmouth, the Hardie Privateer Sloop of St. Maloes, carrying two Carriage and two Swivel Guns, and 26 Men.

TH E Ruflians have divided their Army into several Corps. The fliort Absence of Gen. Tottleben was of great Prejudice to their advanced Troops. As that Olficer has studied the Discipline of the Prussians amongst themselvcs, this is a pretty Circumlocution for a Dejerter the Court of Petersburg tlmught it necellary to uirect him to resume his Command. Field Marihai Count Soltikow is indisposcd at Dantzick. General Brown, who is in perfect Health, has taken the Command of a Corps of Troops, with which it is no longer a Secret that he intends to invest Colberg. Saxony, yum 6. The two Armies are still in the same Position. That of Prussia, however, which oc-cupies three intrenched Camps, leems difpofed to make iome Movt-ments, particularly on the Side next the Hills-: No Person is suffered to approach those Camps : A Country FehW, who went to one of them to buy a Horse, was hänged on the Spot. Nurenberg, June 7. Advices from Saxony say, that Marlhai Daun's Army entered the Entrenchments near Dresden on the ist Instant. The King of Prulfia is still within his Intrenchments ; and as each seems to be afraid of the other, there is no Probability of any fignal Blow in that Country, at least for some Time. The two Leaders go frequently to reconnoitre, and appear only attentive to guard against a Surprize. Henna, -June 7. We have received an Account from General Baron Laudohn, that in the Night between the zd and 4th the Prufiians had the Aflurance to attack the advanced Post of the Imperial and Royal Army at Reichenbach, and carried it by a great Supe-riority of Numbers ; however . they were quickly forced to retire by four Imperial Battalions of Foot. General de Neuendorff was unfortunately wöunded in the Leg, and a farther Detail of this Action is expected, which we will venture to predict has spoiled the Scneme of besieging either Breflau or Schweidnitz. Frankfort, June 14. Saturdäy last the Hereditary Prince of Brunswick marched with 4000 choice Troops to join that Detachment of 16,000 Men which the Allies al ready have on the Side of Fulda, but as the Count de Lusoce is at the Head of a Body sufficient to oppole him, we give ourselves no Pain about this Intelligence, though at first Marlhai Broglio did not incline to believe it. Duffddorp, June 15. Some Regiments of Infantry of the Count de St. Germain's Army paised the Rhine Yesterday, and are gone into Cantonments beyond this City. Three Regiments of Infantry, from Cleves, are expected in the Camp To-morrow. The four Battahons of the Regiment of Alsace are in march to join this Army, whose approaching Departure every Thing seems to announce. It's said to be fixed for the iyth. Amßerdam, June 16. The Directors of our India Company are not without Uncasiness at the Hostilities committed by the Engiilh in the River of Bengal. If General Imhoff had been aiive, the Regency of Batavia would have already obtained Satisfaction. LONDON, Junei. By the Biddeford Man of War from Oporto there is an Account, that two Engiilh Men of War in the Mediterranean had met with and engaged three French Men of War; one of the latter was taken, one funk, and one escaped. This Account, it is said, was dis-patched from Cadiz to the Groyne, and from the Groyne to Oporto, in order to come by that Fleet, which was just saiJed, but followed over the Bar with this Intelligence. We hear that there are Letter; in Town from Halifax, which advise, that the French General, soon after the Battle, having received Advice, that General Amherst was within a few Days March of Montreal, in order to make an Attempt on that Place, thought proper to retorn with the best Troops he had, consist-ing of 3000. Regulars ; and that the rest of his Army, which were mostly Canadians, he lest before Quebec. The Odds on Sunday Night at a certain End of the Town, where the Fate of Kingdoms, and the Success of Fleets and Armies, are decided by a Wager, were, Five to One that the French had not taken Quebec. Advices from Jamaica mention some Disturbances among the Negroes. DERB T: Printed and sold by S. DREWRY: Sold also by Mr.RoE, Mr. Trimer, Mr. Fox, and Mr. Sanders, in Derbv. LIKEWISE Mr, B.
