Extraft of a Letter from an Officer in the Confederate Army in Flanders, dated from Grammont, July, 7, N.S. * The Enemy having marched up directly to us Yeft'er- * day, the whole Army was immediately put in Battle-� Array ; they even drew fo near, that the advanc'd Par-� ties on both fides had feveral Skirmifhcs. The Duke of � Cumberland and our other Generals have made all the * neceffary Difpofitions for giving the Enemy a warm Re-� ception, if they have a Stomach to attack us, having, ' among other Things, ereded two fine Batteries, the �: Effect of which the Enemy have already felt, their ad-� vanccd Troops having been oblig'd to retire. The two * Armie.', however, remain in Prefence of each other, and � as all our heavy Baggage has been fent away to Bruffels, � fome fay it is done that we may not be encumbered in � Fighting, while others fuppofe that we fhall quickly take * the fame Route : But, to fpeak ingenuoufly, the Defigns � of our Generals are kept fo fecret, that we are as much * at a Lofs to fathom them, as to penetrate the Views of ' the Enemy in all the Motions they make. As yet they 4 have not inverted in form any of our Places, much left ' undertaken any Siege ; for this very Day feveral Per-1 fons arrived in our Camp from Namure, Mons, Aeth 4 and Oadenard, to give an Account of the Enemy's Mo- * tions in the Neighbourhood of thofe Towns. According to Advicfs from Namure, they have not yet feen any ' French Troops on that fide ; and they write from Mons, ' that Count Saxe feems to be very far from having any � Thoughts of a Siege.-The General Opinion is, that the Enemy's Defign may be to cut off our Retreat; and this � Moment Advice is come, that the Enemy have taken Poll * at Deynfe ; which muft drive us to great Streights, be-� caufe of the Reinforcements and Convoys of Artilledy5 4 and warlike Stores which we ftill expect from England, * feeing our Communication with Oftend would be thereby ^ � cut off. If this News proves true, a Train of Battering 4 Pieces, which we expedi from Ghent, will be in danger of 4 being intercepted. However it be, all Things concur ' towards another Battle ; in three or four Days I may be 4 able to write more pofitively on this Head.-Would to 4 God that all were as perfectly refign'd for it as I am 4 and that every Man in the Army would imprint in his 4 Mind, that no better Ufe can be made of Life, than to 4 expofe it like a Man of Honour in'the Defence of his 4 Country, or even lofe it in the Support of the Common * Caufe. ; � P.S. This Moment the Troops are ordered fo Arms, 4 the Enemy making fuch Motions as will, in all proba-4 bility, bring on a general Engagement.' Journal of the Army under the Marjhals Traun and Ba-tbiani, frtm the if to the ^th of July, N.S. July 1. Both Armies decamped and marched to Gelen-hauien, where the Head Quarters were fixed. The Army under Marfhal Traun took the Right, and that under Mar. fhal Bathiani the Left. Ten Squadrons and nine Batallions of Hanoverians were in the firft Line, and two Regiments of Horfe, and fix Batallions'were in the fecond. This Day Lieutenant General Baroniay advanced to Langen-Sebold. July 2, 3, and 4.' On thefe Days the Army halted. We had Advice that the Enemy ftill keep fome Troops at Af-chaffenburg; that their main Body is encamped from Stein-heim towards Offenbach; that they have garrifoned Hoechtj that they continue with all Diligence to erect feveral Works and Retrenchments; that the two Bridges there are now perfected ; and that in order to fortify their Camp, they are drawing a double Line from Hoecht towards the Eminences. Upon the 3d, a Party of Croats fwam through the Mayne, and carried off a confiderable Quantity of Lin-Ben belonging to the Enemy. Upon the 4th, we had In telligences which confirmed all the above Accounts. Tomorrow the Armies will march in (Jrdcr of Battle towards Lasgen-Sebold. The Troops are in very good Condition, well difciplined and compleat, and may be depended upon.' Hague, July 13, N.S. Letters from the Allied Army in the Netherlands of the nth Inftant, bring Advice, that it was Hill unattacked by the French, but that it had a Motion towards the Right to Meerbeek, where the Head Quarters then were, and were to march the next Day to A'.uir. On the 9th there had happened a fmart Action between a Detachment, which General Molck and Brigadier Bligh were conducting to throw into Ghent, and a Part of the trench Army. General Molck had forced his Way through the Enemy with the Cavalry, and was got into Ghent; but Brigadier tyigh, with the Infantry, had been obliged to make for Dendermonde. The Enemy is faid to have fuffered moil in this Action. uJlih'�t' Xune ,8- Mr- G�y Dickem- h�Britannick Majeity s Mimfter at this Court, having prcfentod aWemo-nai to the King of Sweden, complaining of the Capture of fome Eoglifh Veffels in the Baltick, by one Dagener, an Exprefs has been fent to Sandhain, where he had put in* with Orders to feiz;e him, and to fecure the Ships he had taken, if ftill there ; and if he fhould have iailed before thefe Orders arrived, the Swedifh Minifters at Copenhagen, Peterfbourg and Berlin, will he inftructed by this Evening'* Poft t� make the like Reqoifition at the,refpective Courts where they reflde, in cafe Dagener fhould come into any Port belonging to thofe Pewers. The King of Pruffia having lately made an Attempt from Schmirfchitz, much like his more fuccefsful one at Stri-gau, to furprize the combined Army upon.the Elbe and the Adler at Koniginfgratz, retired at feeing che good Countenance of the latter, and after having made a fmart Cannonade. Prince Charles's Head Quarters are at Wyffoka, much nearer to Koniginfgratz than to Bardubitz, and the Situation of the Combined Army is fuch from the Elbe to the Mountains, with Koniginfgratz and the Adler before them, as not to fear, as is faid, "till fuch Time as theylhall think proper themfelves to feek the Enemy- The Spanifli and Neapolitan Troops under the Duke of Modena and M. de Gages, continue in the Neighbourhood of Genoa, extremely deftitute of Forrage and other Necef-faries, principally on Account of the great Vigilance and Care of the Britifh Ships of War on that Coaft. The five Transport Veffels. with 600 Walloon Guards on board, continue in the Port of Leghorne, not daring to venture out: Many other Tranfports with Troops, Provifions, Artillery, Ammunition, &c. from "Naples and Orbitello, have taken Refuge at Port Longone, Vada, Caftiglione, &c. to avoid falling amongft the Britifh Ships of War on the Coaft of Tufcany, on which Account, Orders have been countermanded for the Embarkation of the Troops at Orbitello. Lefers from Gibraltar of the 14th of May, O.S. ad-vife, that the Englifh Fleet was in fight of that Place fleering towards Tangiers, and fuppofed Were going thither for Supplies of Water and Cattle. There are Letters by Wa^ of St. Eufiatia, from St. Kitts, of the 11 th of May, which bring the agreeable N ews that every thing was then well in the Leeward Iflands, and that the French continued very quiet at Mar-tinico ; and 'twas believed, the Men of War that arrived there from France, were only defigned to protect their Trade in thofe Parts againft our Leeward Ifland Privateers, whofe Diligence had rendered it fo prccariouj that their Ships could not ftir out from Martinico without being taken. Capt. Thomas Summers, in his Majefty's Ship the Deal Caftle, on the Date of the faid Letters, had taken and carried into St. Kitts, two French Privateers of great Force. The Guernzey Privateer, Capt. Elias Pitton, has carried into that ifland a French Prize, laden with Iron, &c. another laden with Salt 1 and ranfomed a third.
