ExtraS ef a Letter from Barcelona, May \z, NS. * The Court having been informed, that the Army of ' thejnfant Don Philip was not yet able to undertake any ' Thing of Moment, notwithstanding all the Reinforce-' ments fent to it from Time to Time, and that it fcarce ' confided of 16000 Foot and 4000 Horfe, their Majefttes ' refolved to reinforce it further with feven BatalJions of ' Militia, and 16 Companies of Grenadiers. But as thefe ' Troops purfuant to their Capitulation, are not to ferve * out of the Kingdom, they declared one and all that they ' could not affent to march, becaufe it was contrary to * their Agreement, and becaufe the greateft Part of them * <had Wives and Childreato provide for. The firft Batal- * lion which filed off from this City the 8th Inilant, * feemingly well enough contented," mutinied the next ' Day, fixed their Bayonets to their Pieces, and absolutely ' refufed to tnarch. All the Arguments ufed to bring them ' xojleafon were in pain: Upwards* of 400 of them re- * turned Home with a Drum anda Pair of Colours. Some � Troops were immediately fent in Purfuit of them ; with � Orders to bring them bade by fair or foul Means; but * as they are well provided with Ammunition, we appre- < hend that it will be no eafy Matter to make them fubmit. � A Courier is gone to Madrid with this News. We have � formed a third Batalliou for the Regiment of Savoy, < and tho' it it not yet compleat, it will be fent avay in a � few Days to Don Philip's Army, along, with 500 Mi- * qaelets. Letters from Madrid, by the Way of Turin, advife, that the Danifh Minifter there is negotiating a Treaty with Spain concerning the Succeffion to the Swedifh Throne. From Turin they write, that an Envoy Extraordinary from th� Court of Drefden, is arrived there, charged to conclude 2 Match between the Electoral Prince of Saxony and the Princefc Eleonora of Savoy. According to Advices from Berlin, there is a very good Uoderftanding between their PrufSan and Polifli Majefties; Baron Bohlau, the Saxon Minjfter at Berlin, is fet out for Breflau, in order to fettle a Treaty 0/ Commerce, with the Pniffian Commiffaries, between Saxony andSilefia, upon the fane Footing as when the Houfe of Auitria held that Dutchy. The King of Pruffia has received Difpatches from his Minifter at the Dyet of the Empire, relating, to the Methods whereby the Germanick Body may, in Con jun&ion with the Maritime Powers, bring about an Accommodation between the Queen of Hungary and the Emperor. � They write from the Hague of the tft of June, N.S. that they bad juft received Advice from the Duke of Arero-berg's Head Quarters at Zingejung, that General Palfy was arrived there with a Body of 4000 Hunan detached from the Army of Prince Lobkowitz. From the London Gazette. Prague, Mayzt. Prince Charles having had Advice fronV Tiefpach, that a Body of French Troops, confiding of between 5 and 6000 Men were atDingelfing on the Ifer, lie detached General Daun, with a Body of Grenadiers, Horfe and Croats, and fome Haubitz, with Orders to at-fackthem, whilft he followed with the reft of the Army. Upon the General's Approach to the Town, he furamoned the French to furrender, which they refofing, he fired upon *tbe Town with his Haobite, and foon after feveral Houfes appeared to be on tire. Thereupon the Grenadiers and Croats fcaled the Town, and entered it Stoofd in Hand. The French were in the utmoft Confufion, and retired with great Precipitation; but before they could burn the Bridge on the Ifer, the Auftrians found means to kill and deitroy about 700 of them* part by the Sword, and part by pulh-ing ihem into the River. In the midft of this Diforder, notwithftanding the Care and Endeavours of General Daun to flop the Fury of the Flames, near two thirds of the Town were confumed. This happened uponthe 17th. As foon as the Auftrians had got Pofleffion of this Town, Prince Charles detached General Daun to Landau, to attack the French that were there, who were augmented by part of the Garrifon of Dingelfing, and he himfelf followed at three of the Clock in the Morning ef the 18th. On General Daun's Approach he fummoned the French to fur-render, which they refufed * whereupon the General got every thing in readinefs to attack the Place Sword in Hand, and was fixing the Petards, when on a fudden the French Garrifon fet fire to the Town, and retired with the greateft Precipitation, having alfo burnt the Bridge. When the Auftrians got into the Town, they found only one Houfe, and the Church Handing, all the reft of the Houfes having been confumed by the lire; and the Inhabitants were in fuch DkVefs, that Prince Charles diftributed Neceffaries to them, for the French had plundered it for two Days fuc-ceflively, and had/not left the leaft Thing of Value in it. The Inhumanities of the French have fo alienated the Mind9 of the Bavarians, that, as laft Year we could fcarce find a Spy, at prefent they affiir. us to the utmoft of their Power. Prague, June 2. We have Advice that the Enemy has all on a fudden abandoned Wcffenburg, where our People have got a corfi Jerable Magizine with fix great Cannons, ar.d all that belongs to (hem. But what is of more importance, is, the News we received Yefterday by a Courier, that her Majefty's Troops have taken Decken-dorf, "and in it 150 Prifoners, and made themfelve.^, by Force, Mailers, not only of the Bridge of the Town over the Danube, but alfo of the floating Bridge, after having repulfed the French, who had already Begun to break'down the Firft. By all which we loft no more than 60 or 80 Men. Prince Lobkowitz, who was juft come to Prince Charles, was prefent, by Chance, at this Action. Part of the Baggage of the Prince of Conti is fallen into our Hands, and we hear there are about 5000 French behind Decken-dorf, who, it is thought, can hardly efcape. We hear that three Frenchmen were lately difcovered as they were endeavouring to fet fire to one of the Magazines belonging to the Earl of Stairs's Army, and were executed on the fpot.
