They write from New Brifackof the 20th Inftant, NJS. that Marfbal Coigny was actually decamping - with the greateft Part of his Army, in order to obferve the Motions of Prince Charles of Lerrain, who was then likewife on the. March: A Reinforcement of 4000 Peafants was juft arrived, � to guard the Banks of the Rhine, along which they have planted Batteries of 12 Pieces of Cannon ea*ch, at proper Diftances, between fix Batallions- fuilained by a few Squadrons of Horfe and Dragoons. Our Advices from the French Camp at Mertzheim, dated September 21, N.S.- run thus; Yefterday it was confidently affirmed that Prince Charles of Lorrain had patted the Rhine ; but the Advices that are juft come to Hand prove that Report to be entirely groundlefs: It is certain that this indefatigable Prince leaves no Stratagem untried to effett that Paffage, and is fo intent upon it, that he has not been in a Bed thefe feveral Days paft. Fifteen thoufand Men have been draughted from our Army, who are to form a flying Camp under the Count de Clermont, and keep at Hand to join Marfhal Coigny on the firft Notice.
