On thecth Inftant, the Duke of Modena, M. de Gages, and the Duke de Vieuville, with three Lieutenant Generals, and about 8000 Cavalry and Infantry, arrived at Sarzana ; the General Officers took up their Quarters in the Town, and the Troops encampt without the Walls.

On the 7th arrived there Lieutenant General Macdonhel, with about 2000 Men ; and on the 8th arrived the Remainder of the Army, which encamp'd as the former Corps had done ; and Orders were immediately given by the General for making a Bridge over the River Magra, which had fpread itfelf very confiderably by the heavy Rains that fell the preceeding Days, fo that the Rapidity of the Stream very much retarded the going on with that Work. On the 9th, having perfected the Bridge, altho1 but very weak, they were constrained to pafs it, a few at a Time, and to keep mending of it as they paffed over. The Army begun their March about One o'Clock, the Duke of Modena, and M. de Gages, mounted Horfe, after having refrefhed themfelves with the Commiffary, and the whole Army continued their March towards Porto Specia : About Five 0' Clock in the Evening a Body of Auftrian Hoffars, fuftained by 3000 Foot began to appear in the Road which leads to Parma, where there was a Detachment of 13 Companies of Grena-nadiers, one of Royal "Carabineers, and one of Spanifh Huffars, to cover the March of the Army and Baggage, but being brifldy attack'd by the Auftrians, they retreated flowly to the Bridge, where they kept their Ground tall the whole Army had paffed over, continually flcirmiftiing with the Auftrians ; when forming in Order of Batde on the Banks of the River, they made.^ continual FircofMufkets and fmall Field Cannon, which was returned with e^ual Vigour by the Auftrians, until the Spaniards had broken their Bridge. The Auftrians finding it impoffible to follow them, or to ford the River, they retired towa.rds L'Aula, having taken two Officers Prifoners. The Number of Men killed in this Skirmifh is not yet known; as they were thrown into the River ; but there are about 1 jo.wound^d, including one Captain and one Lieutenant, moftpf which were fent to this City.

Three French Men of War are at Villa Franca, which are to Convoy hither thefe Veffels; but as the Squadron of his Britannick Majefty's Ships, under the Command of Capt.
