From the Imperial Camp r.ctir Ponte Oglio,September 13. We had not time to give you in our former an exact account of the defeat of a French detachment ,by General Vaubenne, becaufe the firft Hews theteof ca.ne juft at the going away of the Poft ; but as if appears more confiderable than it was reported, we think fit to give you the particulars of it. That General was detached, as we told you in our former, With 400 Hotfe towards Pontemecchh, to meet lns own Regiment of Dragoons, and the Regiment of Hajfars of Collonel Paul Diack, and having advice by the Country People, that a great Convoy of Pro-vifions was going from Soncino to the French Camp, he immediately marched to Orciuovi, an3 met with rhat Convoy under a ftrong gaird. General Vaubonne divided his..Detachment into t*'o bodies,and charged 'himfejf the Enemy hi the Front, while Collone!:Roc csvione did the like in the Flank,which they performed with fuch bravery, that the Enemy were put to flight,' leaving a great many killed en the fpor, and above 300 Horfes laden with Dread, and a great many Waggons Liaded with Meil.Rice, Salt, and other Provifions.The Germans were bufie in plundering t'he fame, when General Vauhomse difcovered another detachment of about icoo men, Horfe and Footjwhich siarched'iiwajiainft^'ilh all the hafts imaginable ; whereupon he ordeied to deftroy the Provifions they cculd not carry away, and rerued in very good oidcr. The Imperialifts loft in that action 2 Quarter-mailers, 16 Tioopers and 14 Horles, but the Enemy had about ?co mtn killed,befides fome Priibners. Our men being thus retired, fell in by chance near Pmt'.'oi:o, vith another Convoy of 300 Waggons loaded with Hay for the ufe of the French Aimy, and having killed or put to flight their Guard, they fpoiled the Hay, fetfing part on Fire and throwing the reft into the River and the Canals thereabout*, but they fufFe/ed the Country People to return home with their Horfes and Waggons without any molefta-tion. They found in the 1 aft Convoy 2 Standards and j. Kettle Drums cf Piince Vuudemmt. Thefe Actions happened the 15:h. The 17th and 18th nothing rema-kable occurred ; but on the 15th the Lieutenant Collonel ot Corbclli brought a great number of Waggons loaded with Provi/ions and Fcrrage, for the great Magazine we are making at Palazzuo-lo. The Enemy lent the fame day a great Detachment over rh.e Og'.io, conhfring of 2 Brigades of Foot and t Regiment of Dragoons, with iome pieces of Camion, defigned, as we are informed by fome Deferters, to poft themfelves at Canonica, anddiftuib the Convoys of Provifions we expect from me BcTgrtww/f The fame night 60 GrEnadeers and 60 Firelocks having charged the advanced Guard of the Enemy, their whole Army was drawn up in Batalia, and rheir Cavalry continued on Horfeback till 6 of the Clock in the morning. The zorh our Parties brought in feveral Priloners and 80 Horfes, having killed 40 men out of 2 parries of the Enemy. The :ift a Captain brought in 13 Prifoners more, and v.-e hear that Count Theft was fent towards Cremona, and was to march into the Mantuan, to retake Cafiiglione and fome other places.

Prince Eugene has demanded of the Inhabitants of the Bergamajc 1000 empty Carts or Waggons.but upon what defign is noc yet known. Hamburgh, Oftober 4. Our Letters from feveral parrs of Livonia mention a great advantage obtained by the Swedes over the Mufcevites,in which the latter have loft 4000 men upon the fpot, and a great many Prifoners. We have not yet the particulars of that Action, but expect an exact account by- the next Poft.

The other are to be quartered as 'tis faidon fome Lordfhips belonging to the Houfe of Sapieha, whom the Sxpeaes look upon as the chief abetters of the In-vafion of Livtma.
