LxtraS of a private Letter from Brufels, dated July l, N.S. 4 The Surrender of the Citadel of Tournay, when every 4 Body here cxpefled it would have held out three Weeks 4 or a Month longer, has not a little alarmed us, and given 4 Rife to Abundance of mrjeftnres. We are indeed told, � that all the Batteries of the Citadel were aftdally dif- 4 mounted, that Powder and Ball beggn to grow fhort, * that the Wells were beginning to corrupt; and, infliorr, 4 that the Enemy had puflied their Approaches even to the 4 Foot of the Palifladoes; all which Confiderations deter. 4 mined the Commandant to capitulate. But all the while 4 we were kept in the Dark about thefe Circumftances, * and nothing was talked of here, but the good Condition * the Citadel was in, what a vigorous Defence the Garri-4 fon rmde, and how many Thoufands of the Fiench they * had killed, by Sallies and fpringing of Mines ; to which * we mutt add, the Afl'urances given that the Confederate ' Army would march again to the Relief of that important 4 Fortrefs, which we had fo much the more Reafon to de 4 pend upon, as it was left to the Decifion of the Gene-4 rals of the Allies, whether the Place fhould hold out or ' furrender after the ill of June, the Day that the Suf-4 penfion of Arms expired : After b-ing difappointed in 4 thefe Expectations, People naturally begin to enquire 4 into the Caufe, and in the firlt Place roundly conclude, 4 that they have been amufed with falfe Representations of 4 Things; but how to come by a right Account, is the 4 grand Difficulty. To fufpect a Collufion any where, 4 would be going to work too rafhly ; and therefore the 4 Generality rather incline to think that the Town as well 4 as the Citadel cf Tournay, were ordered to be defended 4 as long as poffible, meerly to fave the Confederate Aimy, 4 by giving it Time to receive Reinforcements from Eng- * land and Holland ; and that if the Garrifon did^iot make 4 a better Defence, it was owing to their being ill provided * with Neceffaries. 4 As for the prefent Motions of the French, they are 4 very Myfterious; and fo are thofe of the Allies: The 4 former feern to have a mind to approach our Army, and 4 yet talk at the fame Time of detaching Troops to re- ' inforce the Prince of Conti ; and the Allies have retreated 1 a little way before them, the better to obferve their Mo- 4 tions, as we are told here. Be that as it will, we begin 4 to obferve, that whatever the French Lofs may be in * the late Battle, and at the Siege of Tournay, they have 4 recruited with more Difpatch than the Allies.' On Thurfday laft the Durfley Privateer arrived in the Downs from a Cruize, and brought in with her the Endeavour, Macarthy, (with Wheat and Flower for Ireland) which Ship had been taken by the Triumphant, a French Privateer; but afterwards re-taken by the Durfley off the Start.
