We have certain Advice from the Lu-jiegiano, that fome Detachments of Huflars and Lyca-nians are arrived at Pontremeli, Finizzano, and Aula, and that they are to be joined by 4 or 5000 more of the fame Troops, in order to make an Irruption into the State of Genoa. Copy of a Relati on publijbed at Turin, dated May 4. * M. de Maillebois attempted but in vain, to raife the � Siege of Valenza. For the Purpofe he drew off the 4 Troops that were at the Baths of Acqui, affembled his � Forces, and caufed a Train of Field Artillery to be got 4 in Readinefs. On the 1 ft Inftant he threw a Bridge over 4 the Bormida, and maroh'd towards the Tanaro, over * which we had a Bridge at Cafal-Bayan, guarded by half 4 the Battalion of Ottingen. This Detachment having 4 been attacked, defended themfelves. with great BTavery � for two Hours, during which Time they alfo broke � down the Bridge, and then retired to Alexandria. The 4 Marquis de Caraglio, who commands in the Citadel, 4 rallied out with the Grenadiers and Piquets of his Garri-4 fon, and two Pieces of Cannon, to hinder the French 4 from attempting the Paffage of the Tanaro. He fuc-4 ceeded, tho' the latter had 28 Battalions, and 1000 4 Horfe, which confequently made them fuperior in Num-4 ber. General Leutrum being informed that M. Maille- * bois was caufing  the Bridge at Cafal-Bayan to be re-4 paired, conceived it would be difficult to continue the 4 Siege of Valenza, and make Head at the fame Time 4 againftthe Enemy upon the Tanaro. Like a fkiiful Ge-4 neral therefore, he refolved immediately to pufh on the 4 Siege In the Night between the 111 and 2d Inftant, he 4 caufed the Covert Way of the Ravelin tr be-.attack'd 4 both on the Right and Left, tho' it was defended by the 4 Fire of the Place, as we!' as a ftrong Palifade, and 3 Re-4 doubts. He forced the i ravufes of the Ravelin, took * the three Redoubts, and penetrated to the Covert-Way. * The Attack and the Defence were equally vigorous, and 4 we had about zoo Men killed and wounded on the Oc-4 cafion. The Lofs of the Enemy was full 400, not in- * eluding 138 Soldiers, a Colonel, a Lieutenant-Colonel, 3 4 Captains, 4 Lieuienants, and 2 Enfigns. The following 4 Night General Leutrum made his Difpofitions for at-. � tacking the Body of the Place, and ftationed the Prince of 4 Baden, with 1 o Battalions, at Break of Day, atthePoft 4 of St. Salvador, at the fame Time fummoning the Go-4 vemor to furrender. The latter demanded the Honours 4 of War, with Leave to march out thro' the Breach. 4 Hoftages being given on both Sides, the Capitulation 4 was figned, and the Garrifon is to evacuate the Place as 4 this Day.' . . ' Infpiuck, May 9. Very good Advices from Italy fay, that the Prince of Litchtenftein pafs'd the Taro with all the Imperial Army on Thurfday laft, without lofing a Angle Man. M. de Gages immediately abandoned all his Ports upon that River, in order to retire behind the Tre-bia, whither he is clofely purfued, that he may have no Time to intrench. His Retreat was fo precipitate, that a great Number of Prifoners were made on the Occafwn, and Abundance of Deferters are come over to our Army. Five Imperial Regiments are actually crofting this Country in their Way to Italy, the firft Divifion of which pafled by Trent the 28th ult. but itis not known whether they are to join Prince Litchtenftein, or to be employed elfewhere. We are in the fame Uncertainty with regard to fome Companies of Grenadiers and Bombardiers, which fet out from hence for Italy the 23d paft. Mantua, May 6. Within a Week paft 12,000 Men, moft of them Recruits for the Foot, have paffed by here, as have alfo 500 Horfes of Remount, and 1000 Draught-Hoiies for the Baggage and Provifions. They came from Germany, and continued their Route immediately to the Army. Tho' the Spaniards made a Shew of waiting fo'r the Prince of Litchtenftein behind the Taro, they no fooner faw that Prince making the Difpofitions to attack 'hsm, but they decamped fuddenly, the 3d Inftant in the Night and marched off. The Prince thereupon detached General Nadafti, who arrived at the Army two Days before, with a Party of Light-horfe to fall upoa-their Rearguard. All the Imperial Artillery will directly crofs the 1, and be tranfported towards Placentia. Milan, May 6. Count de Gages is retired from the Banks of the Taro, and purfued by the Imperialifts; but we do not yet hear with what Succefs. M. Maillebois is faid to have retired to Savona. The Chevalier de Sinfan has laid the Territories of Genoa under Contribution, and feenv. to have a Defign of flopping the Supplies by Land fror* Oncglia and "Villafrancha to Genoa, whilft the English Wen of War do the fame by Sea. The latter have burin nine Veffels laden with Provifions at Diano, and taken two French Merchantmen from the Levant, the Cargo of which is valued at 80,000 Piaftres. Bruffels, May 16. A Party of Auftrian Huffars carried off on the 10th from the Gates of Louvain, a Coach and fix belonging to the Duke de Chartres, and three Waggons with Count Saxe's Baggage : Alfo feveral Carriages and fome Horfes laden with Wine. Count de Kaunitz and other Minifters belonging to the Auftrian Government at Antwerp, not thinking themfelves in Safety there, are |= packing up their Effects, in order to retire. Hague, May 18. Count de Rofenbergh has received an Exprefs from Brabant, with Advice that the Army of the Allies was marching to take Poft two or three Leagues on I this Side Antwerp, after having fent the heavy Baggage to I"; Broxkaten upon the Road to Breda. A Report is fince fpread, that the French have taken Poffeftion of Antwerp; but we muft wait for the Confirmation and Particulars of this Affair till the next Letters arrive. Hague, May 19. The King of France made his Public Entry into Mechlin-on Tuefday laft, and a Party of Huffars miffed but very little of carrying off Count Saxe |: along with his Baggage. Their Mealures were fo well taken, that they could not have fail'd, but for the Treachery, of a Peafant, who difcovered the Project., and obliged them to be content with fome Horfe and Baggage. They V took their Revenge however upon the Traitor, whom they '; found Means to get into their Hands, and hang'd him upon the next Tree. LONDON. From the London Gazette. Vienna, May 11, N. S. The Auftrian Army was to i have palled the Taro in the Night between the 3d and 4th Inftant, in the Face of the Enemy, General Nadafti being ; to have led the Avant Guard that was to have been compo-fed of all the Huflars, Warafdins, and Horfe and Foot Grenadiers ; but by Letters of the 4th Inftant it appears, that M. de Gages, who, according to the Reports of the Deferters, has not above 15 or 16000 Men, retired the Day before, and left the Paffage free, but the Route that he has taken is not yet known, or at leaft not yet con-feffed. In the mean while M. de Caftellar has gained the Genoefe Territory, having made 200 of his Officers do the Duty of common Grenadiers, in forming the Rear Guard. It is affured by private Letters from Mantua, that upon the Retreat of M. de Caftellar, the Number of Deferters from his Corps was fo confiderable as to have made it unfafe to let them enter into the Town, efpecially as fo many Spanifh Prifoners were already in the Place. The Reafon why the Auftrians deferred fo long the Paffage of the Taro, was principally the Want of Carriages, which the Parmefan Peafants had removed out or their Reach. Prince Lobcowitz fet out the Day before Yefterday for the Army upon the' Rhine. Berlin, May 14, N.S. The King of Prufliafet out Yefterday for Pyrmont. He propofed to beat Saltzdal To-day, to ftay with the Duke and Dutchefs of Brunfwick till the 16th, and then to purfue his Journey. His Pruffian Ma-jefty is expected back the 10th of next Month, and it is thought he will go to Silefia foon after his Return. M. Podewils, who was formerly his Pruffian Majefty's Minifter Plenipotentiary at the Hague, is now publickly nominated to gain the fame Character to the Court of Vienna, and is promoted on this Occaffon to the Dignity of Minifter of State. He propofes to begin his Journey the latter End of this Month. Hague, May 20. M. Bathiani has effectuated his Retreat without any Lofs or Moleftation, and has found it advi-feable to pufh the fame quite to Breda, where he is fuppo-fed to have arrived laft Night or this Morning. The Marfhal has lefc nothing behind him, except a few Men in Fort Marguerite, and in the Cittadel of Antwerp. ln The Hope, Bullock, from Barbadoes ^0 Curafo?, was 'taken by a French Privateer, but afterwards ranfom'd ; and was convoyed fafe in by the faid Privateer.
