Maeftricht, that Brigadier Howard, at the Head of four Britifh Regiments, amongftwhich is that of die Scotch Highlanders, paffed the Maeze at that Place, oa the 19th Inft. N.S. having under his Convoy about 250 Waggons, laden with the Baggage and Stores of the Britifh Army; ' 1 Letters from the Hague, of July 23, N.S. fay, that the Battalion of Foot Guards marched out from that Place the Day before, and were embarked at Delft for Arnheim, where it is fuppofed they will arrive the next Morning.

From the London Gazette. Shea the Accounts before publijbed of tbe Vi3ory obtained by bit Majtfy at Dettingen, tbtjollvwing Particulars relating to that Action have been received. THE King having received certain Advice that the Marfhal de Noii'les intended to prevent our Junction with the Body of Lunebourg and Heffian Troops, commanded by Prince George, of Heffey fent Orders to the faid^Vince to halt at Hanau. and determined to join him with his whole Army.  Accordingly on Wednefday the 26th, upon feveral Motions which the French Army: made to the Left, Orders were given for the-Army to ftrike theTents at beat-' ing of the Tatce, to remain under Arms till Break of Day, and then to march from the Right in two Columns, the Troops in this March taking the Places affigned them in the Line of Battle.  But ashisMajetty was perfuacfed, that if the Enemy attempted any Thing, it would be on oar Rear-' v Guard* hr^ordered the three Batallions ipf Englifh Guards, / and the Four of. Lunebourg, that covered the Quarters, as alfo all the Hanover Cavalry, with fome Artillery, to bring up the Rear j and his Majefty $hofe to tie there in, Perfon,^ ar the Place of Action. ^    ; * We began to march at Break of Day,^'BritilhCayalry ' in the Front, followed by the Auftrian J -then the British Foot followed alfo by the A Uftriajr/ . As' jSboA aar.the French J|w ui in Motion, theyalfo Kga^;tdim^c%^in greitvHifle towards our Right,: and feVeral oLuj^iat went down to * the River Side, reviewed jtKeir T^ps ^fts they paffedi and many of their dffios'n c^erfed-^wtthtojAs." The French ' left their Camp Handing, which perfuadfed us, that Marfhal de Noailles was to have executed his Scheme that very Mprning.        - His Majelty had certain-Advice, elite Day before, of their making two Bridges upon the Mayn, - a-little Below Selingenftadt," and Col. Mpntagujr'and Col. Gee who relie- : ved him at De�ipgenr had both fenefWord, thatmany,. of their Squadrons had been feen on this .Side of the Mayn; fo -that we were under fome Apprebenj|on of their, intending to cut off our Communication with Hanau.   Were, mainedio thePoficion we were in, after the Troops taking their Pofts/ halting:upon the long March, and expe&iog , the King's Ordc^'rili Eight -of ti�ejClock, the Fiontof our Hbrfe, not' mqrt advarrced thahpetween Klein Oftein and Dettingen-  About .thi*:Time, * Battery of Canhon which the .French had placed at a little Chapel on the Right : bf.Hoech.fiar; ' be^an~ to play upon the Hanover Cavalry, and was foen anfwered by the Britifh Artillery left in the Rear, which was welliferved; and did great Execution. This they meant to draw:our Attention to that Side. ;  WhiUt this was paffing in the Rear, we began to perceive a Line of the Enemy*s Foot, and then a Second extending ..between the V ill ges of Dettingen and Welfheim 'towards the Mountain, and two Columns of Horfe marching the fame Way; fo that our Front, upon the Halt, being to the River, the Enemy's Army, at lefs. than a Mile's Djftance, was upon our Right Flank* The Danger was vlfible and preffiEg, and. his Majefty arriving that Siftanr,.', ordered the Generals of the Day. to make our Front imme-; diately to The Enemy, by exten^jg the Right towards- the Mountain, and the Left to. the River, and  the two Lines of Horfe"were fmlnediitfety fdMed ! His Majefty-"ordered the F�ot-that "Wirt-t^om? fig up   a&A as faft as they arrived, placed the Infantry, Britifh and Auftrian, as alfo four Batallions of Hanoverians, who all marched thro' the Intervals of the Hbrfe from the. Mountain to the Mayn in two Lines, which were fupportedhythe Cavalry of the Right Wing, alfo in two Lines. In making this Difpofirion, which was a very fine one, and which, by Reafcm of the cflow Motions of the Foot, took up a good deal of Time, the Earl of Stair, the Duke d'Arembergt and|Marfhal Neiperg, affifted with great Capacity and Activity. ' The French had paffed over a great Body of Troops during the Night> Their Horfe, the Houfhold at the Head, paffed at Fordsi or fwam over: The Foot, which we faw marching without Baggage along the River, paffed over the Bridges, and nothing could be better laid than this Plan of Marfhal Noailles'sr if he had left the Morafs that he paffed ir? order to attack us, in his Front ; for then the Village of Dettingen and the Mayn fecured his Right, the the Morafs his Front, and the Mountains his Left; but probably his PeWuafion of our Surprize, and that the King, could not in fo little a Time make a Difpofition to oppole him, made him come into Ground, where he was acceffible by all his Front. During the whole Difpofition, which Iafted from Eight to Twelve, the French Batteries polled on the riling Grounds on the other Side of the Mayn, did us a great deal of Harm, flanking us from Left to-Right within 200 Paces. About Twelve, every Thing being ready, and the French advancing, his Majefty ordered us to march to meet them : Lieutenant Generals Clayton and Somroerfeldt, and his Royal Highnefs the Duke of Cumberland, as Major-General, were at the Head of the Firft Line of Foot: The Earl of Dimmore Lieutenant-Genera], and the Earl of Rothes Major General, at the Head of the Second. General Honeywood, Lieutenant Generals Campbell, Ligonier, and Baron de Courriere, and Lord Albemarle as Major General; were at the Head of the" Firlt Line of Horfe: Lieutenant Generals Cope and Hawley at the Head of the Second. Our Lines halted half Way to the Enemy to give the Soldiers Time to breathe; and having given a general Shout or Huzza, marched on to the Enemy with great A-lacrity. A large Squadron of Horfe that happened to be , at the Head of the French Line of Foot, upon the Left of their Center, having kept that Poft.whilft we were ad-, vancing, provoked Part of our Front Line to fire upon them: This occafioned all the Line to fire toofoon .'.However, this had no ill Confequence, they loaded again in an Inftant, and advanced to the Enemy, who was alfo moving towards us; the Fire in a Moment was general upon all the Front, our Line ftill advancing and gaining Ground I LieuVerfarttGentifa^^ay ri.i1 the1 River,'' white he- apprehenlded-lh^^Fneniyr'might; flank him : The Lieutenant General of the Dayifentri^ gadier Bland's Dragoons, who in that Poft fuffered:�x-tfemely. l"he Fire from aHtheBatteries of the Eaemy, ajid particularly from thofe m our Flanks/.was.prodigious, :uid our'Artilfery anfwer'd Very;lbriffe!y^ though much, hi-:. feriour in Quality andNu*ber ,w>re, all.cht to Pieces,, and their Standard taken..
