The fame Day General Rothe gave Notice, that the Enemy's Detachment, which had been in the Mllanefe, was retiring towards Placentia j and a Spanifh Lieutenant who had' de-fcrted, arrived at the General Quarters. The Enemy renewed their Cannonading and Bombardment on the 1 $th, feut without anySuceefs. 400 Recruits join'd us from Germany* and towards Evening we were alt under Arms, and advanced in Order of Bittle, wtli.

S. i� is had joined the Spaniards in the ,ween the 14th. and 15th, with 10,000^ Meaiat H&centia, Difpoiirjons were made in the Enemy's Camp for attacking bur Right Wing by the: Spaniards; and the kftby the French. > the 15th, about Mnf'atNighj, tb,e Cannoa arid SmallArms began, to fire,' and> tb,e; Enemy xe-pulfrd our advanced Gnards upon the Left Wing, which omfi&ed chiefly of Huflars and Croats. Whereupon five %ments of Horfe, viz. thofe.of Lobkowitz, Berlicbuv genj Balayra, Coharij and Holli, were fent to their Support, together with feven Battalions and ten Companies of Grenadiers. The 16th, at Six in the Morning, the Huf-fars and Croats were xepalfed to our Flank j where the French, under the Command of Maillebois, attacked fu-riouily, but after the Cannonading and Firing of Small Arms had lafted without ceafing for four Hours, General Luchefi ordered eleven Squadrons to attack nine Battalions of the Enemy, which was executed Sword in Hand on full Gallop. They foon routed this Body of Infantry, altho1 it was formed into a Hollow Square, and thofi^ whto- ef-caped the Sword, were made Prifoners, infomuch that few Men out of the faid nine Battalions efcaped. After this Defeat, the Enemy retired, abandoned fixty Caffiries, which they had poffeffed the Night before, arid regained their eld Camp. At our' Right Wing, which was weaker than the Left, the Enemy made themfelves five Times Matters of our Redoubts and Batteries, from whence our Cannon had been removed; but, at laft, about Ten of the Clock, they alfo were obliged to retire toward their Camp. The Fire of the Cannon, as well as the Small Arms, and the Bravery of the Troops on both Sides are inexpreffible. According to my Information, we have taken from the Enemy eight Pieces of Brafs Cannon, fixty Colours, and 3000 Men, of whom the greateft Part are wounded. As to the killed, their Number is not yet certainly known, but there has been" a Ceffation of Arms Tp-day to bury them. It is faid, the French have loft coo Officers. The Lofs on our Side amounts to 3060 Men wounded and killed. Liege, Junez^ N.S. TheGarrifon of Mons makes avi-go-ous Defence. Copenhagen, June 25, N.S.
