Letter from Hanover, Jure 22, N.S. ' An Expreft is arrived here from Lend 'n, with the Re-1 port of the Generals who were chargtd by his Majefty to ' inquire into the Cafe of Marflial ijelleifle and his B10- '* ther, and fee whether jhey were entitled to the Benefit of � the Cartel concluded at Francfort two Years ago.. The * King ha5 alfo received a full Account of what has palled * in tne Conferences which the Earls of Albemarle and * Crawford had with the French Commiffaries at Courtray, * about the Exchange of the Englifh and Hanoverian Pri-� foners. A certain Expedient is talked of, whereby the * Difficulty about the Execution of the Cartel may be cf- * fe&ually removed. ' Baron Affebourg, who was fent hither by Prince Wil-' liam of Heffe-Caffel, to compliment the King on his fafe * Arrival in this Country, has already had fevcral Confe- * rences with the Miniftry about the Heffian Troops de- * tained in Bavaria. His Majefty appaars we'll enough in-� clined to interpofe his Credit and Influence in behalf of � thofe Troops, provided they be not employed in a mari^ * ner unfuitable to the preient Circumltances of Affairs in * the Empire. * ' Major General Hop, Envoy Extraordinary from the ' States General, who arrived here a few Days ago, is to � 2(fill at the Conferences that are to be held by his Maje-' fty's Minifters on the State of Affairs in the Empire : The * Subfidy defigned for the Eleftor of Bavaria, is one of the, * Articles to be fettled in thele Conferences, ' The Embaffadors that are to affift at the Dyet of Elec-' tion, on the King's Part, as Elector of Hanover, are Itill: * here, and will not fet out for Francfort, 'till we have ' feen the Effe&s of the junction of the Armies under the � Veldt Marfhals Traun and Bathiani, inafmuch as the, * Eleclion of a Head of the Empire ought to be-free, which x cannot poffibly be whillt there are any Foreign Troops in * the Neighbourhood of Francfort : So th?t we expect to ' have an Account of a Battle foan after the News of this ' Junction. It is no longer doubted that the Eleclion will * fall on the Grand Duke of Tufcany, fince this Prince is ' already fure of the Vot.s of all the Electors, except that * of Brandenbourg.' We hear from Vienna, that frefh Orders have been fent to Prince Lobkowitz to return thither, the Court defigning to employ him in Bohemia under Prince Charles. Thefe Advices add, that a fine Train of Battering Cannon, with a great many Field Pieces, are getting ready there for the Army in Bohemia. They write from Munich that the Count del Bene, Minister from the Court of Madrid, went on - the 10th Inftant to take his Leave of the Elector, by whom he was received in the moft obliging manner : And they affure us, that his Electoral Highnefs declared to him, that he never would lend or hire any of his Troops to act agairrfl the Houfe of Bourbon. It ib laid Count Preyfing, Minifter for Foreign Affairs, b.a� given the Spanifh Minilter the fame.Affurances, and that his Excellency has thereupon taken a Houfe at Augfboarg, where he intends to wait for fiefh Orders from ' the King his Mailer. ExtraEl of a Letttr from the Hague, "June 29, N.S. ' This Morning an Exprefs arrived from Count Ba-' thiani's Army, with Difpatches dated from Wachter-' fpach the 26th Inftant, importing, that.the Junction of , ' that Army with the Veldt Marfhal Traun's was happily . 4 effected the Day before at the faid Place ; and that the * two Armies would reft a few Days, in order to wait for * the fourth Column of Count Traun's Army* after which ' they would refume the Operations of the Campaign. In * the mean time three Regiments of Huflars and 2000 ' Croats, have been fent over theMayn, toobferve the ' Motions of the Enemy and harrafs them. The Prince of ' Conti was beginning to entrench himfclf in the Neigh- bourhood of Afchaffenboargh when the Advices came ' a way. ' Our Advicesjfrom Flanders contain nothing material ' this Poll : We only hear that the Count de la Lippe has � been detached from the Army of the Allies, with1 a Bcdy 1 of Troops to reinforce the Garrifon of Namure. ' Baron Reifchach, Envoy Extraordinary from the Queen ' of Hungary, has declared to the States General, �� That " the Grand Duke of Tufcany having refolved to pat him-" felf at the Head of the Queen's Army in the Empire, " in order to labour effectually, and even expofe his Perfon, " after the Example of his glorious Anceftors, for the 1' Good of Europe, he (his Excellency) was charged to " requeft their High Mightineffes to give Orders to their " Generals, to obey his Royal Highnefs, in all Things " relating to the Operations of the Campaign, after the " Junction of Count Traun's Army with the A'lies under " General Bathiani is effected, and his Royal Highnefs " takes the Command of it. We hear by Letters from Milan of the 15th Inft. N.S. that Prince Lobkowitz was fet out for Vienna, and that the Auftrian Army, which is now commanded by General Schulenbourg, and had already paffed the Po, in order to occupy a Camp marked out for it in the DiHrict, of Pavia, has received Orders to repafs that River in all hafte, and advance into the Tortoneze, that it may join the King of Sardinia's Troops. Advices from Lifle and Ghent agree, that the French have actually fet 3000 Peafanjs to demoliiband blow up the Fortifications of the Citadel bfTournay ; that the French Army continues in its Intrenchments before that Place, and that it is thought the Enemy will not decamp 'till the Demolition is finifhed. Drefdev, June 16, N $. The following Particulars of the la-.e Action h.ive been received from the Army. The 2d of June, the Army marched from Landfhut to Boiken-hain, where we joined that of Prince Charles, which extended on our Right towards Reichenau, where the Prince had his Head-Quarters. The Duke took up his in the City of Bjlkenhain. The next Day, the 3d, all the Combined Army continued its March towards Strigau. We learn'd at Nigh', that a Body of Pruffians, reckoned to be compos'd of iz orijoooMen, under the Command of Lieutenant General du Moulin, was advancing towards us ; we judged that it might be the advane'd Guard of the, Prufnans, tho' notwitnllanding the advane'd Patroles of Tartars, we had no News of the Motions of the Grofs of. the Army. Our Troop* formed themfrlves between Hohen-Friedberg and Eifdorff, in order of Battle, as they came up and we continued all Night under Arms. The City, of Strigau was in our Front. The 4th, by Break of Day, the King of Pruffia appeared on a fudden at the Head of his whole Army, which he had caufed to march the Evening before, and all Night, as we have learn'd fince. He offer'd us Battle, and made his principal Efforts againft the Left Wing of the Combined Army, which was compofed of our Troops. By Three o'Clock in the Morning the Duke was there, and the Cannonading began on both Sides. The Battle followed foon after, and the Right Wing of the Pruffians were at firlt repulfed. Our Grenadiers had got upon an Eminence in our Flank ; but the Pruflian great Artillery obliged them to retire from thence, and this Poll: was afterwards made ufe for erecting Batteries againft us. Our Horfe, notwithftanding their Fire, attacked leveral Times, and difputed the Ground with great Obftinacy for a long while; but as upon Accounr of our Pofition, our great Artillery could not come up to fupport the Grenadiers who covered the Left Wing, they were compelled to fail into the fame Line with the Infantry, and the Action, which thereupon became general, lafted five Hours. The Pruffians had the Advantage from the fuperior Number of their Troops of a larger Front; however, we prevented the Execution of their Defign to take us in Flank, and the Left Wing of our two Lines of Foot, very opportunely obey'd the Orders given for-that Purpofe ; but as the whole Right Wing of the Combined Army was very foon after obliged to give Ground, and we thereupon ran, the Rifle of being furrounded on all Sides, we were under a Neceffity of retiring. The Retreat was made in good Order, and without-any Difturbance. We halted at Halbendorff three Hours, and proceeded from thence to Reichenau. We loft ' 2000 Men, exclusive of 700 wounded. In- general, we have great Reafon to be fatisfied with the good Conduct of the Officers, and the Ardour and good Countenance fhewn .by the Soldiers, as well in the Action as the Retreat. The Ditches and Marfhes which we had to pafs thro', obliged us to abandon feveral Pieces of Cannon, the Carriages of. which were broken, and the Men and Horfcs befongmg to them either killed or difperfed. We ought not to forget, thatbeftdes the Advantage of Ground which the Pruffians had over us, the Sun fhone fo flrong in the Eyes of our Soldiers, and the Wind blew the Smoak fo thick upon us, that we could not difeern the different Motions and Difpo-fuions which the Enemy made during the Attack. According trj the Reports of Deferters, their Lofs is more corifideraftle than ours. Their Gendarmes are faid to be entirely defeated, as wellas eight Regiments of Horfe, and : the belt Regiments of Foot, fuch as chat of the King, of the Prince of Anhalt Deffau, and. others, have fuffered greatly. " Prince Maurice of Deffau, General Boddenbrugg, and General Truches, are counted amongft the Dead of Diftin&iofl. They haveltkewife affbred as, that their .principal Attack .had been formed againft our Left Wing, which appears true, in as much as the Action, which begun there, was continued to the End of the Battle with the greaceft Briiknefs. �LxtraS of a Letter from Amflerdam, dated June 29, N.S. ' Laft Saturday Advice came from Texel that a Pildt ' Boat came in, wfco had fallen in a few Days before on ' our Coaft, with two Dunkirk Privateers, viz. the Royal * Triton, (now la Duchefs de Penthievre) and a Dogger, ' who had under their Guard feven Prizes, viz. two Bre-' men Veffels, bound from thence to Briftol, three large * Englifh fquare-llern'd Veffels, of which one was about ' 500 Tons, mounted with 24 Guns and 60 Hands, and ' a Lute-ftem'd Pink, and a Brigantine.-As the Wind has ' been fince, till this Morning, they cannot be advane'd, * but they now ftand a Chance of reaching their Port if ' not intercepted. Immediate Notice has been fent to � Mr. Trevor at the Hague, and to Oftend for the Men ' of War lying there, and at Helvoet; but its queftion'd c whether they will go from their Stations.-We have * wrote to Texel for the Names of their Prizes, and fome ' other Particulars; but could only learn, that the three ' large Veffels were homeward-bound Virginia.men ; and ' that they were taken near Shetland.'
