FOREIGN AFFAIRS, 1752.
JAGUE, Dec. 29, N. S. The states
forbids all persons, foreigners as well as natives, to engage any artisan employed in any manufacture of this country, to go to work in any foreign country, under pain of death ; and promises a reward of 100 ducats in gold to such as shall discover and convict any one guilty of this crime.
Amsterdam, Jan. 17, N. S. The magnificent stone bridge, composed of three arches on the Heergraff in this city, fell down yesterday so suddenly, that many persons at that instant passing over it were buried in the ruins ; which occafions the more surprize, as the bridge appeared very solid and substantial, and was almost new. By ships arrived from Curalau in the West-Indies we have an account, that a bark belonging to our WestIndia company, and bound for that island, baving cast anchor at Oruba, was attacked there in September last by a Spanish frigate, which took her and carried her to St. Domingo, on the old pretence of contraband trade. As Oruba is an iland be. longing to us, the governor of Curalau immediately dispatched an express to the governor of St. Domingo, to complain of this hoftility and reclaim the bark; and that he might be sure of something in hand, he laid an embargo upon two Spanish vesels then at Curaffau ; but not content with this, as he received an evafive answer from the governor of St. Domingo, he had, when the last ships came from thence, ordered four stout vefsels to be fitted out for making reprisals upon the Spaniards, which we in this country look on as the only effectual way of treating with them upon this subject.
Paris, Jan. 3, N. S. The abbe de la Caille, who was lately sent at his majesty's expence to the Cape of Good-Hope, to make astronomical observations for various purposes, and among the rest for settling the true situation of that remarka. ble promontory, which some have suppored to lie 17 degrees 44 minutes eaft from the meridian of Paris, has, by repeated ob. fervations, determined it to be but 16 degrees 14 minutes east from our meridian ; so that its longitude is 36 degrees 16 minutes east from the old meridian, and its latitude 33 degrees 55 minutes south ; which is made publick for the common benetic of all trading nations ; for without observing this, a lip may in a dark night run upon the western part of this dangerous coast, when the is thought to be a good many leagues off at fea.-21. Saturday last an arret of council was published, authorizing the East India
47 company to borrow 18 millions of livres in order to increase its commerce ; and the subscription was filled the very firit day the books were opened. In one of the last thips sent out by this company, a most superb French suit of cloaths, with two fowling pieces, and two pair of pif tols, exquisitely wrought, were put on board, to be delivered as a present from his majesty to the king of Golconda. 24. The abbe de Prade, a licenciate of the Sorbonne, having publickly supported in that house a thesis tending to deism, he has been by the archbishop suspended from all ecclesiastical functions, degraded of his degree, and his name erased out of the books of the Sorbonne ; and his thesis has been unanimously condemned by that learned body, who are going to lay it before the parliament, in order to obtain permission to have it burnt by the hands of the common hangman.
We have had this month from Madrid the following account of a naval victory, and of his catholick majesty's gratitude to his seamen, viz. Don Pedro Stuart y Portugal, younger brother of the duke of Berwick (who had already distinguished himself against the Moors, by taking, about two months ago, two Algerine Thips in the feas of Catalonia) has taken off Cape Vincent an Algerine man of war, called the Dantzick, of 60 pieces of cannon and 564 men, which, in company with another large ship that sheered off, was cruizing in quest of some Spanith register ships. The engagement continued four days, from the 28th of November last to the ad of December, The Algerine commandant hung out the white fag the second day, but the crew obliged him to continue the combat, and did not Atrike till they were on the point of linking. There were 194 of them killed, and 320 made Naves, including the arraez op commandant, the officers, and 16 renegadoes ; and 50 christian Naves on board were set at liberty. The Spaniards, in the whole, had but three men killed, and 27 wounded, amongst whom there was not any officer. This is attributed to the conduct of the commander, who, to save his men, contented himself with reducing them by cannon, without coming to close quarters ; and with whom the king is so well pleased, that he has created him chief d'Escadre. His majesty has recompensed the other officers in proportion; the sailors of each ship (there being another in company with Don Stuart) are gratified with a month's pay ; and pensions are allowed to the wounded, and to the widows of those who were killed in the engagement.
