The whole Lofs on our Side confide of 203 Men killed and wounded, including feven Officers killed and two wounded, as has been exaflly verified fince the Actions. As to Defertiori, we have hardly had any at all, the whole Number we have loft that Way, from theTime the Army was affembled to oppofe the Enemy's Paffage, not exceeding Thirty. We have not as yet learnt, that the Spaniards and French, who, according to our laft Advices, after repaffing the Mountains of Agnel andSt.Veran, re-uniting their Forces in the Valley of Queyras, have taken any Step fince, by which their farther Intentions may be judged of with Certainty.

The *6th Inftant, we had Letters of the 14th from Chateau Dauphin, by which weareinform'd, that our Parties, whofollQw'd the Enemy upon the Moon-tain, hadtaken fome Prifoners, and amongft them two Officers; as alfo near 500 Mules laden With Baggage of different Kindt, and particularly the Decorations of the Infant's Chaptl, and the Plate of the Lord Berwick, and fome other Officers, Without the Lofs of a Man on our Side, the SpanifhEfcorte haying immediately fled. An Officer who arrived the 17th from Chateau Dauphin, having been difpatched by the Marquis d'Aix, brought an Account, that the fame Parties, who were detacb'a after the. Enemy, had feVd, upon the Summit of Mount Agnel twelve Pieces of Cannon mark-d with the Arms of France, tbcleaft of which are Six Pounders; that there had been, on that Occafion, fome Mulkets fired between our Parties and the Miquelets, who at firft made a Shew of intending to defend that Artillery; but that, npon the Approach of our Grenadiers, the Enemy was obliged to abandon it, after having firft attempted to nail the Cannon, and throw them down the Mountain. , Yefierday being his Majefty'a Birth-day, the fame was ^ulher'd in with Ringing of Bells, at Noon the Guns in the Park and at the Tower werefir'd, and in the Evening there were Bonfires and Illuminations in the Cities of London and Weftminfier.
