I Lieutenant General, 2 Brigadiers General j making in allj ofEcers and common men^ E}{tra�i of a letter from the Hague ^ March 21. By letters from Hanover of the 17th inftant we are informed, that the French garrifon, made prifoners of war at Minden, went from thence the day before, and were afterwards difpeifed in feverai places. Befides 67 pieces of cannon of diiierent fizcs, acon-fiderable magazine was likewife found in that town^ and, it is faid, a military cheft.,; The Duke of Brunf-wick Wolfenbuttle's own regiment was to remain in garrifon there. The French Gamfon at Hamelen then confifted of no more than three battalions 5 but it was thought the enemy were about to evacuate pairing the harbour of Dover, in the county of ^ that town as well as Munden, the only places that j Kent. % remained in their poiTeilioa of the  V(?hole eledo- jrateo Pirince Ferdinend's head quarter^ were Hill at Hille on the i6th inftant; but his Highnefs was to move the next day in order to proceed to Herford, from whence the French had retired j. ^snd his march was afterwQds to be direded. towards Lipftadt. The number of French prifoners taken within thefe three weeks paft, is mad^ to amount to near nine thoufand men. Letters from Hamburgh fay, that the news of the furrender of Schweidnitz was expeded there every moment, the laft advices from Si efia having menti-cned, that the place was battered in thebrilkeft man-aer from feven different batterieso o o o o o o o o o o o o o o o o o o o  � o o o o c o o o o o o o o o 8 o o o . o � o o - ^   o V t o O ?> O o o o o o t o o o o o o o o Q 8 ,0 o o o o o o o o o o o o o o ,0. o o �0 Abpiit^noori, and not befofcj I had intelligence of thefe operations, and that they had been tranfpbrting' . their baggage and cannon up the river in fmail vef-fels over night,; and that one of them was lying round a point of land at fome diftance from us, to go up by next tide. So foon as we could ftem the tide, I difpatched the armed cutter Acrias, and two of my boats, in purfuit of the enemy. They came up with the vef-fel we had intelligence of, and took her. I reinforced them by another boat, and the whole detachment, commanded by Capt. Taylor, continued the chace up the river. The enemy at this time lined bpthTide^s of it, and gave the iirft fire on the boats, who were then coming up with three of their armed veffels. The fire was brilkly returned on our fide j and, in fight of their army, and under their fire, Capt. Taylor came up wuh one of them, attacked her, run her a-ground, and carried her, after fome firing on both fides. The officers and men left the veflTel to recover the Ihore, in attempting of which, fome of them were dropt by the fire from th'e boat. The other two veflels, which had the cannon on board, got clear under favour of the night, and cover of their army. The firft veCel taken, had the fon of Lieutenant Colonel SchoUheins, of Prince Charles of Lorraine's regiment, and one corporal and one pioneer on boards with fome baggage belonging to his  father. There was fome money found, which, partly from the fpe-cie, and partly from the nianner of its being made up, was ccncluded to be pay for the troops, and therefore detained, together vi^ith the corporal and pioneer, and all the little implements ofvvar they had with them. As for the Lieutenant Colonel's fon, he is but a boy, and not of an age to be regarded as an enemy 5 for which reafon I have fent him aihore �0 be returned to his father, with all his and'his father's things j and have wrote his father word^ thatp upon his giving me his honour, that the money is l^ruly his private property, itihajl be returned. The other veflel that was taken, had on board Major De Bertrand, M, Von Longen, commifiary of war J M. Trajane, adjutant de la place j ,M. Le BoufFe, Lieutenant of artillery, and a guard of private men, v/ith three hoftages which they had carried off from Embden, viz. Eodo Wilhelm Zur Michlen, Dodor of Laws, Prefident of the college of Quarantes, and adminiftrator of the royal and provincial college at Aurich ; Baron Von Hane of Leer, adminiftrator at Embden j and Haiko George Eden, adminiftrator of Leer. M. Eado Wilhelm Zur Michlen received a &o� in the veflel during the fcuiHe, but it is not dangerous: from him I had the account'I have already given to their Lordfhips, of the happy effeds the prefence of his Majefty's two fliips- have produced, by occafioning the fudden evacuation of the enemy out of the tovm of Embden, ,    F-O REIGN  NEWS.: - Warfaw^ March 4,   It is faid here, that the Ruf-fiaia troops vjhich have marched into Brandehburgh i'risffia exceed 60,000, who are advancing by detachments to the bank of the Viftula. Stettin^ March 9. Thenew inyafidn of the Ruffians into Pruffia, and their mptions towards the Vif-tula, has alarmed the inhabitants of the frontiers of Upper Pomerania j. yet in the heart of the provrnce they are quite eafy, as 'tis hoped our valiant and wife King W4II foon put a ftop to ail their defigns. In regard to ourfelves, we are under no apprehenfion, the Ruffians having along way toxome, and many difficulties to- furmou'nt before they can reach us, and our city is ftrongly fortified and furnifhed with plentiful ftores of ammunition and provifion, befides a garrifon of 90.00 fine troops,- who in cafe of any likelihood of a fiege,. may.be timely, fuccoured by a corps frorii Marflial Lehwald^s armyo Drefdefty-March 12.
