ON rhe i7rh inftant a Lieutenant Collonel arrive! here from Italy, to give the King an account of a hard Engagement between the Impetialifts and a Decach-menc of our Troops at Carpi, which is rcLted as folio" :�. The main Bodv of rhe French and Spanijb Army being encamped at Sr Pietrode Ugnago, rhe Marefchal de Cxtinat detached four Regiments of Dragoons, one of Horfe and 5000 Foot, with 6 S'ieees of Cannon, to fecure a Dvfite near Carpi, between the Adige and a great Morals, of which he thought rhe German: intended to polfcfs rhemfelves, ro open their way into the Hantaan The Sieur dt St Premond, Major General, who Commanded t.'iat Detachment, being arrived at Carpi, ordered feveral Intrenchments to be caft up, the better to fecure that important Pals, and erefted a Bittery on a Riling Ground, to batter fome Works the Imperialtils were calling up on the Canal Bianto, for favouring a Bridge they feemed to have a defign to lay there.' The Enemy made on their fide a great fire on our M.-n, and every nighttbere happened hot skirmilhes between thein and our Guards, but the Canal being between them, few people have been killed on either fide, The Imperialiirs obfervingrhe:difpo-fition of our Troops, i'eemed to alter their defign, and having divided their Army, fent a ftronjg Body under Count Paifi towards the Pa, who having pafled Cand-B'sanco, or River Tartan, at Caftle Gulklmi, con� tinued their march towards Palantone, and Lago Ofcu^ ro, to pafs the P�, at thoft1 places in T Ferry-Boatsy. there being no Stones or Wooden Bridge in thole -parts. The reft of their Army remained at. Caftettal-dt and Vdl�-Bitm*i for fecur-ng their Bridge on the Adige, and waiting for their heavy Cannon and Reinforcements. On the fith" inftant, they drew up together on the Banks of the Canal, and made 3 great fWon our Menr making feveral pteparitions, as if they intended to pals it in fight of oa#-Forces. The next day early inv*he morning they n&iued the fame, and made feverat feints to pals-the1 Canal j but in the night time Prince Eugene wis marched with a great Detachment, andpafled tbs'Canal two Leagues below, with fdeh a 'iedecy, that we kn�W�nothing thereof. That Detachment came'-up and attacked" our Ifltrenchmenr with an unfpeakable fury, and were as warmly received, while rhe Impemiifts on the otheHtde made a great fire upon our Men. The German: got three times into our Intrenchmenr*;, and were as many times tepuMed ; but our men were at lafirobliged.JO yield to the number of the �n march that way into the M.m-ttian. This put.speop'e into a ;^reat expectation or" a Battel, there being now. no R.vers nor Mi>r:-i'vs ro prevent it.

As thatEx-prefs was difpatched immediately after the Ingage-ment, thefe particulars are very uncertain, but whatever they are, 'tis owned that we have �been beaten from a very advantagious Poft , which feems to be of a great csmfeguence. The Prince of Paudemont is at Milan, where he is now bufle in receiving the new Oaths of Fidelity from the refpe&ive Commonalties of that Dutchy, which has been thought neceliary in the prefent jen&ure of Affairs.
