General Advertiser (Newspaper) - June 13, 1845, London, Middlesex No $3oo.; T H U R S D AY, June 13, 1745. Dealt June 11 EMAIN the Men of War, the Raleigh Privateer, and the O ut-ward-bound Ships. Came down Yefterday after Poll, the Marma-duke, Bowman ; and Difpatch, Miller, for Lilbon ; the Delight, Sollit, for Portfmouth ; and the Urfula Tender. Wind Weft. The Hallow-Oak, Biggs, from Leverpool, is arrived in the River. LONDON. Extracl of a Letter from Amfterdatn, Jtine 18, N.S. � Affairs are in Sufpence on theMayn. It appears that the Veldt.Marfhal Count Traun has not yet thought fit to � crofs that River, becaufe he cannot do it without paflihg in Sight of the Prince of Conti's Army. It is as yet uncertain whether the Junftion of Traun's and Bathiani's Armies can be effecied. They write from thofe Parts that it will be very difficult to execute it, unlefs General Bathiani's Army takes a great Circuit. � They write from Copenhagen, that the Hanoverian Miniiter has left that Court, without being able to obtain the Body of 8000 Men which he went to folicit for the Defence of the Electorate of Hanover. ' The Citadel of Tournay ftill makes a vigorous Defence ; but our Advices from thence infinuatc, that it cannot hold out much longer. The Truth of the Matter is, that we don't exactly know what pafles there, moft Fadb concerning it being publilhed at Random. It is thought the Army of the Allies will not begin their March fo foon as was expected. * Another Relation of the Battle of Friedberg has been publifh'd at Berlin. It is much longer than the firlt, and contains among other Paniculars, that Prince Leopold of Anhalt-DefTau attack'd firlt the Saxon Infantry in a Marfhy Wood, from whence he drove them with (he Bayonec fixed to the Pieces, without firing fo much as one Shot: That the Pruffians attacked next the Saxon Cavalry, and that the whole Left Wing of the combined Army was foon obliged to give Ground. This Wing, which confiifed of Saxons, formed a Triangle in retreating, but were quickly broken, and the Regiment of Schonberg with two Companies of Grenadiers cut all in Pieces. After this Wing was defeated, the Pruffians charged the Auitrians, the Attack being conducted by the King and the Margrave Charles: The Auftrians g;.ve Ground everywhere, yet in fome Places they rallied again; but having been charged in Flank by fome Troops drawn from thePruffian Right Wing, they were at L& totally defeated: The Maflacre was very^'Veat here, fix Au-ftrian Rgiments and a Troop of Horfe grenadiers having been cut in Pieces. The Pruffians 6id not purfue trre combined Army on the Day of Battle, any farther than the Mountains. * According to the fame Relation, the Pruffians have taken 66 Pieces bf Cannon, fix Hobits, 76 Colours, eight Pair of Kettle-Drums, feven Standards, four Generals, near 200 other Officers, and above 7000 private Men. The Auitrians and Saxons had 4.000 Men killed, and this Relation adds, that coafidering the great Number of Deferters that are come over to the Pruffians, the whole Lofs o�*he Combined Army cannot be lefs than 20,000 Men. ' So far this Relation ; Poflerior Advices fwell the Advantages gained by the Pruffians in their Purfuit of the Auitrians and Saxon?, who have repaired the Mountains, marching partly for Bohemia, and the Reft towards Lu-fatia.' * It remains now that we fee what the Saxons and Auitrians will fay of this Battle. There apptars already fome Relations from Drefden, wherein they don't deny the Lofs of the Battle ; but deny that they lolt fo many Troops as the Pruffians give out : And they ftill fay, that Prince Charles, and the Duke of Saxe-WeifTenfeis, will foon be in a Condition to venture a fecond Battle. -The Sequel will (hew us, whether they are mittaken., Yefterday came an Account, that the Rofe, Warring, arrived at Weymouth the 10th, from Mor'aix, with 210 Prironers exchang'd.-One of the Prifoners (a Mate of a Ship) declares, that he had been at Breft, and that whillt he was there a French Man of War arrived from Cape Breton, to which Place fhe had been difpatched Exprefs ; that the Commander of her, on coming on Shore, declared that when he got to Cape Breton he faw a great Number bf Englifh Ships in the Harbour, and that it appeared to him they were in Poffeffion of that important Place ; on which he alter'd his Courfe ; but was immediately chas'd by two Men of War, one of whom, (the Headmoft) fprung her Top-mart, by which Accident he efcap'd ; and had not call Anchor 'till he return'd to Breft ; and that there were feveral French Store-fhips juft arrived there, which had alfo fallen into the Hands of the Englifh.--If this Kews proves true, they may boaft, if they will, of their late pretended advantage on the Continent. Lett 1 r from Edinburgh, June 6. � Yefterday Sir Hector M'Lean, Mr. Blair of Caftlehill, � with another, faid to be Servant to Sir Hector, were ta-' ken into Cuftody, having newly come from France, and * fufpected of bearing Commiffions in the Service of that ' Crown, and other Treafonable Practices.
