   General Advertiser (Newspaper) - July 20, 1845, London, Middlesex                                The General Mvm&et. SAT U R D AY,  JVl^ 20,   1745. Deal, July18. AME down his M$iV� Ship the Bridgwater; and (he Young Noll Privateer, on a Cruize. Arrived the Weazel Sloop of War, from the Northward, and remains with thcOutward-bound. Wind W.byS. The Burrifh, JuE.frdm Bdfton, is arrived at Falmouth. The Prince of Orange, Adams, from London, at Bofton. The Expedition, Murray, from Dublin, at Briftol. LONDON. Extract of a Letter from Hamburgh, July r 4, N.S. 4 From the Combined Army in Bohemia we have Advice, that almolt all the Reinforcements of Troops and Artillery expecled there, are actually arrived : That on the 2 2df 23d, and 24th of laft Month feveral lharp Skirmilhes happened between the Pruflians and the Auf-trians, the former having made feveral Attempts to pafs the Elb j but all we know of the Matter is4 that they were repulfed every Time with Lofs, and obliged to retire by the" Way of Jaromitz to the Frontiers of Silefia. A little Time will fhew whether there is any Truth in the News of this Retrear, and whether the Progrefs made in Silefia by the Infurgents, will be able to draw thither 'again all the King of PruffiVs Forces.  According to what they write from Drefden, the King of Poland neither regards the Menaces of the Couit tf Berlin, nor the Motions of the Prulhan Troop- afTembled at Magdebourg, who are actually on the March, but contents himfelf with taking all the neceffary Precautions to ftcurc his Electorate from an Invafion. Some pretend Co infer from this great Unconcern in his Polifh Majelty, that he is fure or a powerful Succour, in Cafe the Pruf-fians attack his Dominions ; whiiil others conclude from it, that there is a private Ur.derftanding between the two Courts. Time, which brings to Light all myilerious Tranfadtions, will Icon fcew which is in the Right.  Our Letters from Drefden add, that Confoer.ces are very frequent there, and that the King conltantly afliils at them : That the Portuguere Envoy at the Britifh Court is an v d there from Hanover ; on what Errand is not known, but his Excellency is faid to be charged with Commiffions to feveral other Courts in the Empire. 4 We have pofitive and particular Accounts from divers Places, that the Emprefs of Ruffia, being at laft overcome by the repeated Sollicitations of the Britifli, Hungarian, Saxon and Dutch Minillers at Peter/burgh, has really acceded to the Treaty of Warfaw, and that jn Confequence of this folemn Acceflion, Orders have been ifliied for a confiderabie Body of Troops to hold them-felves in Readinefc to march on the firfl Notice. Extrafis fom tht Bojion-Gazette of the +th of June. * On Thurfday laft arrived Captain Smith, from Gene-4 ral Peperell and Commodore Warren, in eight Days ; * by the Difpatches they bring, we learn, that our Forces 4 have made their Approaches fo near Louifburg as to �* have com pleated a Fafcine Battery of 42 and 18 Poun-' ders, within 200 Yards of the Weft Gate,  by which * they had beat down the Draw-Bridge, and almolt the 4 whole Gate, as alfo the Parapet of the Demi-Lune Eac-' tery ; and had made fach a Breach as to fee into the �. Town ; and doubted not making the Breach fo wide as * to make the Town eafy of Affault. * Our Troops had alfo raifed another Fafcine Battery, r on the North Side of the Harbour, and had already there * fome 42 Pounders; and had begun to play on the Town 4 the Day Capt. Smith came away ; and being within, 4 Point-blank Shot of the Town, and Demi-Lune Battery * on that fide, molt greatly annoy the Enemy in the * Works they werecarrying on within, to hinder our ' Approaches at the Welt Gate ; fo that the Town was 4 now expofed to five continual Fires, which had beat ' down many Houfes. * Our People"are "reebnnoitering the Harbour, Shores, * &c, and have difcovered a Number of Cannon, on the * Light-Houfe Side of the Harbour, in the Water, which � 'tis fuppos'd wasdefign'd for a Battery ; but on fight of 4 our Fleet was-tumbled down the Precipice into the Sea ; � but notwithstanding this Place is within reach of the 4 Guns of the Wand-Battery, our People have weighed : 4 rooft of them up. 4 About One Hundred of the Enemy from the Town in 4 Boars attempted to prevent the Recovery of thefe Cannon, 4 but as foon as rhey were landed, a Party of our People 4 cut them off from their Boats, on which they fled into * the Woods, except one, who was "taken, who informed * us, the Armament coming from France was three Men 4 of War of 70 Guns each, two of 56�Guns, and two ' Company Ships of 36 Guns. 4 We have further Advice, that on the 18th tilt, the � Mermaid of 40 Guns, Capt. Douglas, and the Shirley 4 Gaily, Capt. Rcwfe (one of our Cruizers) fell in with a ' French Man of War, and engaged her, the former Broad-4 fide and Broadfide ; and the latter not being able to lie 4 along-fide of her, and going well, annoy'd her Stern, or 4 her tiead, or on the Quarter, the belt ftie could ; they * engaged her, and fail'd '(ill they fell in with the Commo-4 4ore (whjch was 9 o'Clock at Night) who.got along-fide to engage, and gave her two or three' Bfoadfides, when, 4 fhe ftruck, and called for Quarter. She proves to be the; 4 Vigilant, a new Ship, never afSrabtfore, xti 64 Guns, * and 560 Men, was commanded by the Marquis du Mai ion ^Fort. 4 The Command of the above. Ship is now given to. ' Captain Douglas; and that of the Mermaid to the Hon. 4 Captaifl Montague. . � -The Vigilant was laden with ^wsarilfe Stores of all Sorts, for lupporung a Siege and reinforcing their Fortifications, ,among which> is a great.Camber pf heavy Cannon, with their Materials, befides Small-Arms, Bomb-Shells, Cohorns, &c. and exclusive of the Ship's Stores, 1000 Half-Barrels of Gun-Foweer; and as there | is a good Look-oat for the Remairider of the Ships, 'tis  hoped they wyill fallMntp our Hands. j 4 The Vigilante, adorn'd with a great Number of Co- , louts, was tow'd a-efofs the Harbour by the Mermaid, in View of the Town ; which muft intimidate them very much, as their fole Dependancc was upon the Arrival of tfoofe Ships, and This the Commodore. There was a Per-fon of Diltinctton on board ; but whether he was a new Governor, or Monf. Duvivier in Difguife, was not dif- ' cover'd when Capt. Smith came away. 4 We have further Advice, that the Princefs Man of War, Capt.Edwards, who went from hence, had joined the Fleet the Day Capt. Smith carte away, who met the Hector Man of War, Capt. Cornwall, bound down with a fair Wind ; fo that the Fleet now confifls of the Su-perbe and Princefs Mary of 60 Guns j Mermaid, Laun-cefton, Eltham and Hector of 40 Guns ; Bein-Ami of 24 Guns, three 20 Gun Ships, three Snows of 20 Guns, and one Bngantine, with the Rhode-Jfland and Connec-ticut-Colony Sloppe, all well raann'd and'fitted ; and 'tis not iuppofed that any Force will come from France equal to it this Year. 4 The Commodore alfo expects two 60 Gun Ships ; and one 50 Gun Ship from Newfoundland ; which with thefe expected from Anapolis, Pifca'away, &c. Will certainly ' prottdt our Northern Colonies this Year from an Inva-4 fion. 4 Our Army in general were in good Health and high 4 Spirits, and fince the laft Accourtts have only loft two 4 Men killed, at one t f our Batteries ; and one wounded. 4 The Lieutenant-General and Commodore had deter-' mined on Meafures for profecuting fome more vigorous I Attack, of which we hope fhortly to have a good Ac- * count. * We hear that the Vigilant has trvee Years Pay, and * all the Cloachirrg for the Regiments of Cape Breton and 4 Canada on Board.  The three Englifh Men of War under Commcdore ' Brett were arriv'd at Newfoundland.  'i he Grand Battery whi*h was deferted by the Enemy, * was immediately garrifon'd by Col. Waldo, wjth fix ' Cqmpanies, in Spite of a continual Fire from the Om-4 non of the Town, to prevent our People's taking Poflef- 4 fion of it. There is certain Advice, that Oudenarde furrender'd on the 1 ith Inftant, O.S. And that the French King was to make his Publick Entry into Bruges as Yelterday. On Wednefday lalt Twenty Cafes of Muficets, with Cartouches, Belts, ice. were fhipt fiom the Tower, for Oftend. Yefterday came Advice, by Letters frdm Oftend, that M Week died there Captain Mitchel, a Commander in the Train, a Gentleman well refpected for his Knowledge in Military Affairs. On Thurfday Morning as a Brewer's Servant in Wap-ping, was riding on his Dray in Mile-End Road, he was by a fudden Jolt thrown off, and the Wheel going over his Breaft he was kill'd on the Spot.
