LONDON. Extrafi of a Letter from a Saxon General Officer, dated from the Camp at Shtin, near Jaromitz, in pobemia* June 8, N.S. The Combined Army of Auftrians and Saxons have been retreating, till To-day they halt, ever fince the unfortunate Battle which was fought on the 4th Jnilant, near Stri-gau in Silefia, between them and the Pruflians. The Royal Hegiment of" Saxon Curaiffiers was ranged, on the Day of Battle, in the Left Wing, next to the Auftrian Troops that joined them ; and it happened in the Engagement, that two Pruffian Squadron?, which attacked the Auftrians that were on the Right Hand of the Body Squadron of the a-bove Regiment, were repulfed by them in fuch a Manner, that they were got juft upon the very Bick of the faid Body Squadron, of which the Lieutenant-Colonel gave irr mediate Notice to the Colonel, advifing trim at the fame Time to wheel about, and endeavour to prevent the geat Lofs and Danger they were like to undergo : The Colonel approved of his Advice, and they weie I'carce enme about, before the Pruflans pre fled upon them, being driven by the Auitrians. The CoLnel fell immediately by a Piftol-lhot ; after which the^Fight was obltinate ; and of the Pruffians, who were taken to be Gendarmes, fcarce half efcaped, and thofe much wounded. There was hardly Time to difpofe the faid Body Squadron, before it was attacked again by another Pruffi in Squadron, which was faid to be Carabineers : Thefe made great Efforts for the Standard and Kettle Drumc, as the Squadron was very weak ; but the Bravery of the Offictn, and ot lome under Officers and private Men, helped the Li.ureuant-Coloncl, who had taken the Command after the Colonel feil, to prelerve them. When the Attack was over, and the Prullian Squadron repulfed, ihe Lieutenant-Colonel Icarccly found 30 .Vlen left by him, and feeing fome of the Saxon Troops by a li.tle Grove on the Left Wing, he went to join them, and found there the Lieutenant-Colonel of the Haudring Regiment, who had but few more Men than himfelf. While they were there two Captains, two Lieutenants, and 1^ Men, with the Standard of the other Squadron of the faid Royal Regiment of Saxon Cuiraffiers, came and told them that their Commander was much wounded, and the whole Squadron, except themfelve?, difperfed. After this, the faid Body Squadron was attacked a third Time by a Squadron of Pruffian Dragoons, fuppofed to be the Mullendoiff, and were fo fortunate as to repulfe them likewife ; but were by this Attack feparated from the Haudring Troops. Hereupon, feeing no more of the Auftrian or Saxon Cavalry on the Field of Battle, and that the Pruflians were purfuing them to the Village on the Right ; the Lieutenant-Colonel, �finding he had but few Men left, in order to fave the Standard and Kettle Drums, prudently retreated on the lek Side of the faid Village. They were no fooner got on the other Side of it, but a great Number of Pruflians were falling on them, from which they efcaped, by afma'l Career, to the Rutowski Regiment of Light Horfe. andjrom thence to another Village, where they found Colonel Haudring with fome of the Saxon Cavalry : They then made together about an hundred Men, and when the two Batallions of Grenadiers, and the Rutowski Regiment of Light Horfe, were come up to them, thev formed and fup-portcd each others Retreat, under feveral Attacks of the Pruffian Huffars, as far as Bultenhayne, two Miles from the Field of Battle, and in that Pofition joined the Army that Evening at Atraichenau. In fhorr, the extraordinary Bravery and Conduct of the Lieutenant Colonel, the Captains, Subaltern Officers and Private Men of the faid Body Squadron, who did their Duty as excellent Officers and brave Soldiers, was fuch, that the Duke of Weiffenfels has ordered a Relation of their Behaviour to be drawn up and delivered to him. On^aturday laft came Advice, that the Scrop?, (Corv-* way) and the Hefter, Hall; were arrived off Dover, (rpm St. Kitts.-They came out on the 8th of May, hf''Company with the Willet, Griffiths ; and the Pembroke, Herbert ; who were both taken on Monday laft, about 10 Leagues to the Weft of Scilly, by two large French Privateers.
