   General Advertiser (Newspaper) - May 27, 1845, London, Middlesex                                M O N DA Y,    May 27,   1745. Deal, May 25.

Extrafi of a Letter from Amjlerdam, June r, N.S. �  4 Affairs have taken a new Turn on the Lower Rhine : * It was thought that the Prince of Conti would have at- * tacked the Duke of Aremberg, and that the Duke was ' retiring mcerly to avoid a Battle : But we now perceive * that the Prince of Conti only feigned a Defign to give ' Battle, the better to conceal the Meafures he was taking, ' to reinforce the French Army on the Neckar to fuch a * Degtg&.a&rtOsbe^able to make Head againlt the- Army ' coming from Bavaria under the Command of the Veldt ' Marfhal Couiit Traun ; which being done, his Serene * Highnefs all on fudden let out for Heidelberg, where he ' arrived the 26th of lad Month, after having had a Con-' ference with the Ele&or Palatine. 4 We now think ourfelves at the Eve of fome great * Event ;  for if Count Traun, whofe Army had net yec * begun its Mdich the 25th of May, advances towards the * Main, there mult be a bloody Battle, which will in all ' Probability decide the Election of an Emperor.   If the Auflrians prove victorious, the French will be obliged to evacuate tne Empire, and the Grard Duke will b; im-diately chofen Emperor ; on the contrary, if the French win the Battle, the Election will be poflponed for a long wfiftf, J'or"'~at leall, they* will riot fuffer the Grand Duke to be elected. ' Wc alfo expect every Day fome extraordinary News ' from Silefia, which Province the Aultran and Saxon ' Troops muft have entered e'er now.   It is not to be * doubted that Prince Charles will attack the King of ' Pruffia the firll favourable Opportunity ; but at the lame ' Time it is very pmbable that his Pruffian Majelty will aft * only upon the Dcfcfutve, and avoid a Battle as long.as ' he can. Jour rial of the Proceedings of the Allied Army in Flanders, from the l yh to the z\Jl of May. THE 12th and 13th were employed in examining into the State of the Regiments, in eflablifhing the Holpitals, and in difpatching Trumpets to the French Camp, to enquire after the State of the Wounded, and to complain of the Treatment they received contrary to the Rules of War.
