The Englifh and Hanoverians who w re P.iloners in France, and the Number of whoin js 6zo, having been exchanged and brought here, ire to lec forward To-morrow, �n order to join tbc Array of the Ai ks. The raiir tary C'le'ts ire expected in this Town to-nifthr, where the other Cherts are to arrive lucceflively, which indicnes the approaching Return of the King. ^Vc were in great Perplexity about the Sieg,-of Be.gen op Zoom, at tr.e Inftant that le-v ril Couriers artiv.d with the News of i;s being taken by Ailtult Yellerd^y Morning i that tbc King's Tro >ps toup,ht in tne Town two Houis with the Troops ol the Gairilon; that on this OtCilion a greit Number wete killed, and that eye.; ihe btiecs were lined with dead Bodies, and a I :nofc fall ot Blood.

All the Pa ti uiirs w: cm Lollttt as to tne Lots ot the Place tallow. As loon as tru fcttemy entered the Town, they n,�rch.d- without Delay towards .'tn� ot the Mtrqatlat", vshere the pnncip.l Otfi eis ot the t��mion were together, with the Magidr tes ot the Town. Wr;i,c they were labouiing to tuive the One, the Pri.ice of HefTe Philipihal ordered two Regi nent� to advance, at thc Head ol whi;h he attacked thc Enemy with luch Vigour, that they were obliged to give Way, and this enabled him to rekue thole who were in the Palace be-t jre mentioned. Ic was here that the Dilpute was molt obifinate and bloody, and that the French, notwithstanding nil their Advantages, were twke lepulied, and had been actually driven out, if '^hey h<ui not been from Time to Time lupported with irtth I'roops. It is airt.med that the BattiDons tou^hcMan co Man wirh their Muskets and Bayonets, the Frencn try ing, Cue U Kov, and the G r-rnon, live iO'jn^e; but though our People fought like Lion^, anu the great Square was not only it 1 c �ed.but in a Mmni; choaked with dead Bodies, they were ub!ige iner t eic was but ifcMen thtt el.aped, and ot thc latter there tell the Colonel hi.ni'clf, the Lieuunuit Colonel Cou^t de Hoaapetch, the M -jor, anJ young Count de Rec iteren, who was a C�pt*Jii. The Scotch Regiment of Colyear rn^de a moil glorious Defence, and has lo:t 17 01-ricers. All the Baggage an,.!

It is reported, that the Enemy, in the Fury of their Relentment, maffacred oar Officers and Soldiers that were wounded, their Servants, and the poor Inhabitants, without Diftinc'tion of Age or Sex, and that their Rage did not abate,'till there were tew Ob;cds led to latiate their Cruelty. Buc this depends entirely upon Rumour, and we hopa will not be confirmed. The Enemy are without. Doubt, in poffedion of all the Forts, but we hope that many ot the Ships laden with Provifions have elcaped. As yet our Head Qturters arc here but we expect very Coon to be in Motion, tho' hitherto we cannot tell on which Side.
