Count Harrach and Baron Reifchach, the Imperial Minifters, have received the Newsof the Defeat of the Genoefe Reverters at the PaiTage of the Bochet-ta, agreeable to the following Extract of a Letter from Mantua, dated Jan. 21. ' We have a Confirmation from Milan> that our Troops ' attacked the Genoefe Peafants in three Places at once ; ' General Andreafi. on one Side, Col. Franckini on the * other, and General St./Andro in theMiddle, or, at the ' Bochettu. The latter pbliged 1 2,000 of thefe new.

Belleifle is marching with all Speed againll General Brown, and that probably there will very foon be a very bloody Action between the two Armies. Infpruck, Jan. 24.
