IRELAND. From the DUBLIN-JOURNAL. Notwithstanding we have publiih'd fever-sl Letters jtranf-mitted to us from England, concerning the late Glorious Action at Dettingen.-We don't doubt but the following; n rote by a General-Officer to his Friend in Dublin, will be acceptable to our Readers. Extra'3 of a Letter from a General-Officer in the Army% dated June 30, N.S. ON the 27th Inftant, N.S. the King gained a Battle over fhe French Army, who crofs'd the River Mayne between Hanau and Dettingen, and cut off our Communication wkh Hanau, (from whence we had our Provifions ana Bread,) and afterwards advanced to attack us in our March. On "which we immediately drew up in Order of Battle, all our Englifh Infantry, (except a Brigade of Guards, which made the Rear Guard, as the greatdt Danger was apprehended from thence, though it proved other-wife) with a Part of the Auftrians making a fecond L:ne; the Ground being fo narrow between the River Mayne and Mountain?, as not to admit of more than zz or 23 Batal-lions in Front, with fome Cavalry, of which my Regiment was a Part; fo that, in fome Places, we had a third Line of Foot fupported by two or three Lines of Horfe; but our,; firll Line of Foot behaved fo well, we had no Occafion to employ the fecond ; for, from the Beginning of the Action (which lafted about three Hours, occasioned by the Difficulty of the Woods where the French were pofled) they gained Ground on them, forcing them three Afferent Times to retire, and at laft to quit the Field of Battle, and repafs the River with great Precipitation, in which'a great many were drowned. What the Lofs on their Side is,'I do not; yet know; only that ours is not very coniiderable for. the Length of the A&ion, my Regiment having loft more than all the Englifh Cavalry, being expofed all the Time to a Battery of the Enemy's 12 Pounders, and towards thrEnd of the Aftion obliged to charge nine Squadrons of the Hoirfhpld of France, through wnichthey forced their Way three different Times; ana though they were out-number'd in the firft Charge three to one, yet they thought it much iefs dangerous than the Cannonading they flood for about two Hours. My Regiment was fuftained by Lord Stair's Dragoons, the Blues, and Honeywood's Horfe; fo that few or none of the Mufqueteers and the reft of" the French Squadrons efcaped, about 30 of the Mufqueteers and Officers of Diftin&on being taken Prifoners, and the greateft Part of the others being Killed. Lieutenant General Clayton was killed.   The Duke of Cumberland (who commanded as Major General on. the Left of the firft Line) was fhot in the Leg, and Brigadier Hufke in the Foot.  Thefe were all. the General Officers of the Englifh that were killed or wounded.  Col. Peers is dangeroufly wounded, with feveral other Field Officers; amongfl which poor Major Honey wood is of the Number, having feveral Shots in his Body, and Cuts in the Head, fo that I fear much for him. . I had one Lieutenant and one Cornet kill'd, and aknoft all the reft of the Officers wounded, there being now only five Officers fit to do Duty, and about a third Part of the Men and Horfes, the reft being either killed or wounded. My three Standards are loft, but not taken by the Enemy: They were fh&ter'd to-pieces by the Enemy's Cannon, and trod under Foot in the Mud where they charged, fo as not to be found when the Action was over.  One of the Comets that carried them was killed, another was wounded, and the third (which was Mr. Child, Lord Caftlemaine's Brother) had two Horfes kill'd 1 under him, fo that my Standards were loft Nobly.  My ' ufual good Fortune attended me, having loft only the Horfe I rode, which was fhot clofe by the King in the firft Fire; and not being able to find any of ray Grooms, I attended: his Majefty on Foot during the whole Action, who had like J wife diimouBted, and put himfelf at the Head of the-Foot,: and kept clofe to the Front Line during the whole Aclion,' which animated our Troops to fuch a Degree, that double the Number of the French could not have beat them. , High Water this Day at Lxmdqh-Bridge at 3*5 Mi-nates after 4.
