The Paris A-la-main adds to the ?%bove Articles' a Letter laid to be receiv'd from Venicex containing an Account of die late'Battle fought between the Armies commanded by Count Traun and Count Gages, whereby the Viftory is entirely given to the Spaniards ; but this Account being exa&ly the fame with that publilh'd by the Marquis St. Gilles at the Hague, no Credit is to be given thereto ; and that the more, becaufe it is confirm1 d from all Parts, that the Aufirians gain'd a complete Victory, and that not a Spaniard would have efcaped, had they not deftroy'd the Bridges over the Panaro, and thereby put a Stop to the Pur-fuit made after them by the Aufirians. Letters from Venice* of the-17th of February, fay, that it is agreed that-the Aufirians remain'd Matters of the Field of Battle, and that the Spaniards loit three times as many Men as their Enemy. Moft of .the foreignJVlmifters refiding at the Hague have likewife receiv'd Letters, all which confirm the lame FacL An Extracl of a Letter from the Hague. * The States General, fince receiving their lafl Difpatches 1 from Peterjburg, have had a flri�ter Attention to the * Steps taken by that Court than before. Their High ' Mightineifes have obferv'd its Motions the more nar-' rowly, as they have receiv'd Affurance that her Majeity ' of Hungary has no Encouragement to lay any Strefs upon * Succours from that Quarter, the Emprefs, when the laft * Subfidy was paid to that Princefs, having caufedit to be ' j'nunuated to her, that the Treaty of Alliance which (he 'had enter'd into with her, and by vertue whereof five had ' remitted her the above Subiidy, was at an End, and that ' ihe was aot in a JDifpofaJon of jeoewirsj* it,, unlefs fome * Circumftances mould occur which might require it. Tie ' News related by. fome foreign Papers, that the Court of 4 RuJJia, in its Treaty with that of Great Britain, excepted ' againit affifting this laft in any Quarrel it might poffibly ' have with France^ proves entirely falfe ; The Ruffian ' Miniftry did indeed-propofe it; but then Great Britain ' .refus'dthem any Aflntance in their Contefts with Sweden. * This laid a Foundation for admitting of the Expedient * which is in Reality agreed to, that the- Forces of RuJJia * fhall not on any Account whatfoever pafs into Italy, or ' any Part of the Mediterranean ; and that thofe of Great '. Britain mall not intermeddle in any Mifunderitandings * which may poffibly happen between that Empire and ' Turfy or Perfia. The Deputies of the States of Sweden ' who have lately been at Peterjburg, were treated there ' lefs like the Minifters of State of a powerful Kingdom, ' than like Prisoners. In the firft Place, a Houfe was ' furnifh'd for them by the Court, where they were attended * by jts Officers, and had always along with them a Captain ' ef the Guards, rather to prevent any Body from talking ' to them, than to do them Honour. M. Daillon, Minifter * from France, having one Day invited them to Dinner, ' they were told on the Part of the Emprefs in the Morning 'of the Day they were to have been treated, that her *� Majefly would take it very ill fhould they go to this ' Miniftcr's Houfe, or. to that of any other. r At this M. r Daillon was fo offended, that he could not forbear publickly * fhewing his Refentmerit, byafking, how long it had. been ' the Fafhion io treat publick Minifters as if they were *Prifbners?'

Extracl of a Letter from New-Eng/and, from a Captain, to his Friend at Barbadoes, dated Augufi 30, 1742. 'SIR, e I here acquaint you that I fail'd from this Port the 4th ' of January laft, bound to your Ifland, but was fo unfor-' tunate as to fall in with three largeSpanifh Ships, viz. one ' of 60 Guns, one of 40, and the other of 32 : They were ' all full of Land Forces, fo that I was oblig'd to ftrike to ' them direttly, not being able to make any Refiftance. ' They took my Ship, and fent her to Porto Rico ; but I ' was kept on board the fixty-gun Ship, a Prifoner. , In a ' few Days after I was taken we met with two Englifh Men ' of War, one of 40 Guns, the other ofvo, which we ' have fince heard were the Antigua Station-Ships, viz. the ' Eltham and Lively. They came up with the Spaniards, ' and fought them very bravely, notwithstanding the great 1 Odds, which very much furpriz'd the Dons , and the ' Commodore, in whofe Ship I jvvas, would have ftruck ' feveral times, the Englifh Ships fired fo fall and fo thick , .*-_oir;thc�fbut- .there was ah IriSi Land -Officc^on bQard, ' a Lieutenant of one of the Companies, who defir'd ant! � infifted that the Captain fhould not ftrike, for if he did ' not chufe to fight the Ship, to give up the Command to * him, and he would fight her, which hinder'd the Captain ' from ftriking. The Englifh kill'd between 6 and 700 ' Men on board the three Ships, and tore the Ships all to * Pieces, So that it was with great Difficulty they were kept * upj and had there been one Hour more Day, they muft ' have ftruck; or could the Englifh have come up with * them in the Morning, they muft have taken all the three, ' as they were not able to make the leaft Refiftance. They ' were oblig'd to make the beft of their Way to Porto Rico, ' and it was with no fmall Difficulty they reach'd that Port. * The Spaniards were very much furpriz'd to fee two Ships ' of fuch inferior Force offer to engage them in the manner � they did, and declar'd they never met with braver Men. *. I arriv'd here three Days ago, for I was put afhore at * Porto Rico, after we refitted the three Ships out. ' By what I could learn they had a vaft Quantity of Bale ' Goods on board, and a great Sum of Money to pay the * Soldiers. They were reclcon'd the richeft Ships that fail'd * from Spain this Year; fo that could thefe brave Captains ' have carried them, they would have gain'd immenfe ' Fortunes ; which I heartily wiih they had done, as they ' were very deferring it by their gallant Behaviour.'
