From XtieCG&F Oftober 6,  to SCmi'Dap October 8, 1702. from tie Arm-] under the Earl of Maryborough near Maeftrichr, Oaober 12. OUr Spies from Liege bring advice that the Marefchal of Boufflers has fenc away all his heavy Baggage, and recalled all his detachments   to reinforce his Army. Pri.-rce TSercla/s Tilly   has joyned hiej with 5 Regi ncits of Horfe and Dragoons from Liege, and Coup: Tallardreturns from trie   Neighbourhood cf Cohgn with all imaginable diligence.Thefe motions of cne French give us fome hopes of a Bated, but we have been fo often difappointed,that we dare not believe it,and the fending sway of theirBaggage may bo in order to retire, nor to fay run away, with lefs in-coriventency.   Yefterday Montkur de Cohorn. arrived here with Monfieur Gsldermaif.n,  and went directly to the Quarters of the Earl of Athlone, where the Earl of Maryborough was at Dinner.   His Excellency received him with extraordinary marks of efleem, and when he fiw him cominj; in, he advancrd and embraced him.

All the ne-ceffiry ordets are given for it, and the Bridges are alreajy laid over the little River Jette,  infomuch that either we fhall to morrow encamp before Lie$et or engage the French Army,  which muft Retire or Fight.   The Troops from Ruremonde will joyn us to morrow morning in our march.   The French have left 8 Batallions in Liege, viz. 3 in the Cittadel, 3 in the Charter-houfc and 1 in the City, who are ordered to reinfoice the others,who fhall be firfta'.racked.The Artillery employed in the Siege of St Stevevfiourt is lending up the Mtefe from Maeftricht to joyn us before Le7ge,of which we hope to be Mailers in two or three days.   The French have removed all their Provisions fro;  Tw*fren, and we hope they, will not have time enough to blow up the Fortifications they hive made to th�- place',!'which will be very ferviceable tousfor our Winter quarters.   The French being in fear of being J"urpriz:d, fend frequent Parties to get intelligence or our march; but our Generals being  informed that one of 'em was come pretty near our Army, Gil'anel Cbanchi was detached on the 10th at night, with joo Horfe and Dragoons to fall upon the E'lemy.

Tni EleSor of Celogn is mighty uneaiie finee the approach of che Allias, who threattn Bonn with a Bombardment and a Blockada, the feafen being too.far fpent to undertake a Siege.   Letteis from Sxtbia confirm, that the Imperialifts, have prevented the conjunction of the French and Bavarian?, but that the Elector of Bavari* continues his Hoitilities, notwithstanding the reprefentation of the Dyet of Ratiilonn?.

Paris, Oftober 9. We expect by cur next Letters f:om Cadiz, the particulars of the attack of Fort Mat-tagorda, which is variorjfi/ related in our advices . from Madrid.
