ExtraS of a Letter from the Camp of the Auftrian and Piedmontexe Troops, Auguft 7, A^. � The 23d of lalt Month 1 2 Pieces of Cannon were taken ' out^of the Citadel of Alexandria, and planted on the ' Ramparts of the Town. The 25th a Detachment from ' the Enemy, confining of 300 Horfe and 200 Miquelets, ' advanced towards that Place, but were repulfed by our ' Troops, with the Lofs of many killed and wounded. ' The fame Day in the Evening there happen'd a (harp ' Skirmilh between the Warafdin5, Sclavonlans and Huf-' fars, that form our Van Guard, and a Body of 4000 * Horfe and Foot that came up to attack them.: The latter ' were puihed back to their Camp, and loll about 100 ' Men, befides four Officers and 20 Soldiers made Prifonws. * The 30th we fent Commiffaries to Caltel-Ceriolo, about ' an Exchange of Prifoncrs : Count Soro, who is in the ' Hands of the Spaniards, could not be included in this ' Exchange, becaufe the Aultrians had got no Prifoner ' of his Rank. The ill Inltant, a Party of our Men ad-' vanced to Caflel Ceriolo, where the Miquelets weTe * polled: A Sl�rmifh enfued between them, wherein our � Men killed 40 of the Enemy, and made 23 Prifoners. ' Hitherto 1 h ngs went on well enough ; but the next ' Qay the Call e of Seraville, being reduced to a meer * Heap of Ruobi/h, was forced to furrender, and the Gar-' rifon, confining of- 300 Men, were made Prifoners of * War. 7'his Jobb being done, Count Gage's Army im-' mediate1)' advanced to Tortona, and invelted it, the In-' fdnt Don Philip's Army" decamping at the fame time to ' occupy the Camp which the former had quitted. In ' thefs Circumitances a Council of War. was called, where - * in it was judged that we could remain no longer with ' Safety in our Camp at Rivarona ; and accordingly we * have marched from thence, crofled the Po, and broke * down the Bridges after us, and now we wait for the IfTue � of the Siege or Tortona. It is certain that nothing was * omitted to preferve the important Poll of Seravaile ; for ' a few Days before- the Trenches were opened there, we ' found Means to throw into it a Convoy of 20 Waggons ' of Provifions and Ammunition, whfeiumight as well have * been kept for a better Ufe, fince da$jfexpefteflce fhews ' that taking Towns by Famine is a Method qdffedifufed.' They write from Venice, that a Difpute is arifen between that Republiclc and the See of Rome, occafioned by the Sbirri, who lately killed in fome Fray at Rome, an Officer belonging to the Vene:ian Embaffador j upon which h.s r.xc-llency ordered his Servants to fall upon the Bari-zel and fome of the Sbirri, which was done fo effectually, that they made them bite the Ground ; and as if this Re-vmgL: was'not fuffkient, the Mob at Venice frequently infill: the Pcpe's Nuntio's Palace : Nay, the Refentment of the Venetians has been carried as far as the Confines of Ferrara, Blows having been dealt between the Inhabitants of tint Dutchy, and the Sclavonians fubject to Venice, and fomi Lives loll on both Sides. A Mediator is much wanted to make up this Quarrel, but our Advices don't fay whether any one has yet offered to reconcile the Parties.
