General Advertiser (Newspaper) - June 10, 1845, London, Middlesex M ON DAY, June io, 1745. Veal June 8. AME down his Majcfty's Sloop the Baltimore; the Stubbington, Mauger, for Leghorn j Friend's Goodwill, Glegg ; and Adding-ton, Kitcherman, for Gibraltar; and the Supply Hoy ; and remain, wiih the Duke Man of War. Wind S.W. LONDON.. Yefterday arrived the Mail from Flanders. They write from Acth of the 13th Inftant, N.S. that the Confederate Army was ftill in the Camp at Leflines, where it receives Reinforcements almoft every Day, and it was thought it would forthwith make fome Motion : As for the French., they were intrenching themfelves more "and more, from Fontenoy as far as the Scheld, on the Banks of which they have eredled paliffadoed Redoubts, and planted Cannon on them. We hear from Cologne, that the Eleftor has refolv'd to acknowledge the Validity of the Vote of Bohemia at the Dyet of Election, and to reinforce the Duke of Aremberg's Army with 6000 of his Troops ; and that his Electoral Highnefs has difpatched Baron Rolle to Vienna, to acquaint the Queen of Hungary with the fame. ExtraB of a Letter from Amflerdam, June 1 5, N.S. ' AH our Letters from Drefden and Leipfick confefs that * the combined Army of Auftrians and Saxons has been de- * feated by the Pruffians ; but they will not allow their * Lcfs to have been fo great as their Enemy make it : On * the contrary they fay, that as the combined Army are * ftill Mafters of the Defiles of the Mountains, they may ' re-affemble there, and venture a fecond Battle. Nothing * is more common than for the Conquerors to cry up their ' Victory to the Skies, efpecially in the rirft Accounts they ' fend of it; as on the other Hand the Vanquifhed always * take great Care to conceal their Lofs from the Publick : ' So that it will be neceffary to wait for the Ccnfequences of this Battle, in order to form a right Judgment of � it. ' They write from Warfaw, that the Regiments of � Oulans and Bofniacks which the King ordered to be raifed * in Poland, have committed fuch Exceffts and Violences ' on their Route from that City to Meter viz, that all the � Inhabitants loudly complain of them : That they even � talk of an Affociation of the principal Lords and Gen- * tlemen of Great Poland, in order to fee themfelves from ' fuch Banditti, as they call them ; and that the Great Ge-' neral of the Crown Army in particular, is highly incen- * fed at their Behaviour, &c. ' The French boaft of being Mailers of the Citadel of ' Tournay before the 20th Inftant, tho1 they carry on * the Siege by Sap ; becaufe, fay they, the Defences of * the Works are fo much damaged, that they need but ' difcover and fpoil the Mines, iu order to become Matters ' of the Place, which in their Opinion may be done in a * few Days. On the other Hand the Allies flatter them-' felves they have Time enough yet to attempt the Relief � of that important Fortrefs. 4 If it be true, as fome Letters from Germany fay, ' that the Junction of Count Traun's with the Duke of * Aremberg's Army, may be effected without any Obllacle, * we may not fo foon hear of a Battle on that Side ; but in ' fuch a Cafe the Prince of Conti will affemblc all his � Troops on the Main, and intrench himfelf there, and fo 4 remain Mafter of the Avenues to Francfort. Drefden, June?, N.S. Laft Night the Count de Nof-titz, the King's Aid deCamp, arrived here from the Army in Silefia, with an Account, that there had been an Adion upon the 4th, at Half an Hour after Two in the Morning, between the Pruffians and the Allied Army near Strigau, which had turned out to the Disadvantage of the latter. .The Ground upon which the Battle wa- fought, would not permit the whole of the Allied Army 10 engage. The Right Wing, which was under the Command of Prince Charles, could not come up to the Afiiibnce of the Left, againft. which the King of Pruffia turn'd his whole Force, fo that this laft not being able to (land their Ground, tne whole Army fucceffively was obliged to retire into the Defiles on the Side of Reichenau, which was performed in good Order. We had a great many Generals and other -Officers, efpecially of Hone, killed and wounded. The Foot behaved well, but was obliged to give way to the fu-perior Force of the Enemy. The Park of Artillery was jDOt come up. Some of the Field Pieces which the Regiments carried along with them, we were obliged to leave, on Account of a Ditch which was in the Road. The greatell Part of the wounded were brought off 5 and, at the Departure of the Count de Noftitz, the whole Army was got together at Landfhut, where they are in fuch a Pofkion as not to have any Thing to fear from the Enemy, and to be eafily fupplied with every thing that was neceffary out of Bohemia. Drefden, June 9, N.S. M. Cagnoni, the Pruffian Re-fident, departed from hence this Morning without taking Leave of the Court, having had Orders fome Time fince, as he g^ve out, to behave in that Manner, when he fhould be certainly informed that the Saxcns were to march into the County of Glatz ; or the Dutchy of Silefia. M. Walter, the Saxon Refident at Breflau, has, by the King of Pruffia's Orders, been obliged to leave his Refidence in eight Hours Warning, and was conduced to Poland, not being permitted to come hither. The Swift Privateer, Captain Hudfon, has taken and brought into the Downs the Charlotta of Stettin, bound from Bourdeaux to Dunkirk, laden with Wine, Almonds, Sugar, &c. The Merrymack, Hall, is.arrived Exprefs at Plymouth, from Barbadoes 5 from whence fhe came the 9th of May, and advifes, that Caylus's Squadron arrived the 28th.of March at Martinico ; and were in Expectation of being join'd by more French and Spanifh Ships. And that on the 2d of May a Flag of Truce arrived at Barbadoes, with Pri-foners; by whom they learnt, that four French Men of War were in Port at Martinico, cleaning; and four others cruizing.
