Same other cf their A'tacks have a!f> been unfuccefsful ; ;.r.d one Night a Poft of their', upon a Bridge over the Argens, was attack'd by Order of M. Belleifle, and thofe mho guarded it cut to Pieces. The Marfhal advancing with 60 Companies of Gr.mdiers, and feme other Troops, the Enemy retired two Leagues ; and this Morning a Courier is arrived from him to M. de las Minas, intreating him to advance with his Army, and join that of France, in order intire'y to clear the Province. Some have been fo fanguine to fay, that within i 2 Days there will not be an Enemy left in the whole Country : but, in the mean Time, M.

Marftiila, Jan. 5. The Crew of a Ship juft now ar-liv'd report, that they heard Nothing as they came by Antibes, which makes it conjectured, that the Place has capitulated.

The Expcdicton agaiufi the Republick it a little retarded by the long Marche which the Froops have to make ;n a Seufbn fo little proper, and. by theDifliculty found in getting- together the nceell'ary Provinons. It is believed, however, that the Marquis will foon be in a Condition to march. Nice, Jan *z. The Want of 1'iovifions has obliged General Brown to retrsat a little this Way.
