MArftial Maillebois having left Novt on the xith with all his French and Genoefe Troops,, and having joined the Spanifh Army on the 14th neaf Placentia, pofted his Left Wing near the Town,' and his Right upon the River Trebia j that^ and the following Day, all the Generals' of the Enemy made the neceffary Difpofitions for an Attack; about Eleven o'Clock the fame Night, (viz* the 15th) the Enemy advanced againft our Left Wing, they had very good Succefs in the Beginning, having yarf feon diflodged fome of our advanced Guards fiom thfe Caffines arid Redoubts, which our irregular Troops occupied. As the Darknefc of the Night hindred usfrom difcovering where the Enemy might attack us with the greateft Force, (which rendred it difficult for us to make iogood Difpofitions as might otherwife have been made) Prince Lichteri-ftein only gave Orders for the whole Army to be in Arms, and repair to the Pofts which had been afligned them thft Day before, and to wait for the Enemy m that Manner ; that every Officer mould maintain his Poll to the lait Extremity in cafe he fhould be attacked. At Break of Da/ we perceifved the Enemy's whole Army advancing in Order of Battle, at a fmall Diftance from us ; and the Right, commanded by Marfhal Mailkbois, with whom were the Spanifh Guards arid Walloons, began the Action. The Enemy advanced in very good Order againft our Left Wing, and were well received by the Field Pieces belong* ingtoour Regiments, Teh Companies of our Grenadiers, which forfn'd & Corps de Referve, fell upon their Flaink, and repulfed them; but havihg purfued th'em too.fkr, were obliged to retire to prevent their being cut e'ff: Upon which Martial Maillebois advanced in perfeftgood Order, and with great Bravery, oolite up to our fmall Arms, which began to make a continual Fire upon them. But General Brown tvith the Infantry of his Wing, and General Luchefi with the Cavalry,' having nfa'de proper and immediate Difpo-fiticto to alter fhe Attack," the latter advanced with the three Regiments of Lobkowitz, Ballayra, and Holly ; and ha-fHtg^r'ecefved tKe firft Fire of th� Enemy, fell upon their f-nfamtry Sword in Hand with fo much Valour, that he routed them, and without giving them the leaft Time to recover themfelves, purfued them 'till they got under the Walls'Of Placentia j from which the cohfiderable Lofs of the Enemy may be conjectured.
