Left Night Mr.Ovtr; one of hit Majefty" s Meffengers, arriv'd at tit &act tbt Dule of NewcaftWs Office, with the following AdvicesjfronL the Right Honourable the Lord Carteret, dated/af.Hanau, 20 June O. S. .1743. |HE King having received certain Intelligence, that the. Marfhal de Noaiiles intended to endeavour to prevent the.Jundtion of theHcffian Troops under �he Command of Prince George of Heffe, and the eight Hanoverian Battalions under ' that of General Druchleben, with __the main Body of the Army, fent Orders to Prince -George,, and to the faid General, upon the'r March; fo halt at Hanau, and determined to join them with the whole Army: Accordingly on the \\ in the Evening, his Majefty gave Orders that the Army fhould hold itfelf in Readioefs to march the next Morning early, and about Poor the Troops began to file off in two Columns, when the Duke de Noaiiles perceiving this Motion', immediately order'd a Detachment of his Army to march along die Mayn towards Seligenftadt, .where the French Infantry paffed that River oyer two imdges, and the Cavalry'forded it a little above the faid Village, with*! a Defign to oppofe,.ivith all his Force, the Junction of our Armies, his Artillery forming the Arriere Guard. As fbon as it was in Reach of annoying our Army, it began to play upon as, about Half an Hour palt Ten in the Morning, and took us in Flank. This Fire lafted near two Hours, and though we erected fome Batteries in order to filence thofe of the Enemy, yet they did not difcoritinue firing. Kotwithftanding which,-our Army continued it's Marcn, and by Perfeverance arrived in a little Wood, behind which the French Army was ranged in Order of Batde j their' Right Wing was covered by the Mayn, and fup-ported by a Battery erected near Maynfling, on the other Side of the River : The Left extended itfelf towards the Hills, and had behind it a little Rivulet and the Village of Dettingen. The French Army, amounting to near 30000 Men, was drawn up in two Lines and an Arriere Guard ; it wis commanded by the Duke de Noaiiles, the Duke de Chartres, and feveral other Princes of tne Blood were prefent; and the Houfhold Troops made the Center, fup-ported by the Infantry. The King having given his Orders to the refpeclfve Generals of the Army, with the greateft Calmnefs and Refolution, placed himfeif on the Right Wing at the Head of the Biitlfh Infantry, on Foot, Sword m Hand. Our Army drew up in Order of Battle, as well as it could, in the Wood, and extended itfelf as far to the Front of the Enemy as the Ground would allow. On the Right of our Army, at the Entrance of the Wood, the Hanoverians erected a Battery, which flank'd the Enemy, and did great Service in the Heat of the Action ; another was erected by the Englifh on the Left, and a third by the Auftxians in the Center. Such were the Difpofitions of the two Armies till about Twelve o'Clock, when the Army was advanced to charge the Enemy. The Troops of tne French King's Houfhoid attack'd with great Vigour our Center, which gave Way a little, but foon rallied, repuls'd them, and drove them before them till they beat them out of the Field. Annex'd. 3s a Lift of the Prifoners, m.iny of which are Officers and Ferfons of Quality; agreatNumberwere kili'dand woundtd, and fofne Standards and Colours taken; and, after this Defeat of the Houfhold Troops, the French Army perceiving itielf attack'd on all Sides, quitted the Field of Battle, pafsM the Rivulet behind it,, and .potted'ufelf in Order of Battle upon an Eminence commanding the Plain : But not-withftanding this advantageous Difpofition, upon our Troops marching towards them with Refolution, and in Order, they abandon'd that Poll, retir'a to Kleinevelfheim, and at laft retreated in great Diforder towards the Village of Seligenftadt, where they pafs'd the Mayn with Precipitation and Confuiion; feveral were drpwn'd, and a great many died of their Wounds in the Purfuit. The great Number of the kilTd, that were found difpers'd on all Sides, ihewi that their Lois mutt be confiderable, and it is computed at about 4000 Men kill'd, wounded, drown'd, and taken Prifoners. On our Side, our Lofs is computed to be near 150b kjli'd and wounded. Among the firft is Lieutenant-General Clayton, who was kill'd upon the Spot, equally regretted by the King, the Officers and Soldiers; amonglt the laft, his Royal Highnefs the Duke, commanding with great Bravery at his foil of Major General, receiv'd a MnfketBall, which went thro' his Leg ; the Dske d'Arem-. berg receiv'd one in his Breaft; but. neither of thefe Wounds are thought dangereus.

An ExtraS of a Letter from the Ha cu i, dated June 28. * Art anonymous Memorial 15 handed about here, which ' i3 faid by moft People to have been hateb'd at tne Court 4 of Franu% wherein the utmoft Inveteracy is ^xprefs'd 4 againft the Court of Vienna. -  * The Minifhy of France, or the Author of this-Pieced' ' treats the Auftrian Troops as Incendiaries j and by Way ' of proving this Iniinuation, rdates feveral Events whici<: ' have happened iince the retaking of Lintz,. The Cou*rc ' of Vienna is therein accus'd of opponng 'all Offer/ 4 tending towards a Reconciliation, of being faithieis in ail ' its Conduct, of reiifhing nothing fo much as Slaughter * and BJoodfhed, and of'ufing the Means to draw its Allies 4 into a Gulf' of Misfortunes, of which, before even-a ' Year is at an End, they will feel the fatal Confluences^, 4 from the vafl and ufeiefs Expences which they wif� be' * put te, in fupporting the ambitious Views of hcrM:jeftyl ( of Hungary, and by the Mortification which they will 4 have in finding their Projects to fail, and rn feeing thai * Princefs their Ally, redue'd to the Condition her Oppo-4 fers intend to bring her/. That the Court of Vienna will 4 then be in a more humble Difpofition, and without Hopes 4 of Succour, will fcek, as it has done heretofore, the. 4 Friendfhip of France^ and will again make her thejudge 4 of its Intercit: But it will then be too late, becaufe the 4�Cruelties which the Queen of Hurgaty.excrciies towards 4 the Bmperor and�his Dominions, the poor Subjects where-- 4 of arc, without Refource, ruin'd, have rais'd.fach ill 4 Blood between France and tne Court of Vienna, as will... 4 for ever run in the Veins of the Houfe of Bourbon. This. 4 Writing further adds, that it behoves her Majefty of 4 Hungary to make the beft of the Advantages which the * Fate of Arms has given her, feeing the Time of her 4 mating Conqucfts, of which fhe can fee 110 Bounds, is very 4 near expir'd. It's generally wcii known, that Hungary is 4 in fuch manner exhaufted both of Men and Money, that 4 if the Porte fhould happen to make a Diverfion, which 4 Iks been before now tne Cafe, that Princefs would then 4 be fo far from entertaining Views upon Lorrain, ' that fhe would probably be conilrain'd to offer the Eni�-4 peror Bohemia and the Tyrol, in order to prefervc part of 4 the Kingdom of Hungary: That then her lYiajeity of 4 Hungaty would fee how her Allies would behave, aiuL 4 particularly Great Britain, which is already fo drain'd, ' that this Crown has thought it could not do better than 4 with its utmoft Efforts to make a Pufh this Campain, in 4 order to. fpread Terror, and oblige France to abon-!oa: 4 her Party, wherein England very muclvdeceives herfelf ;s 4 for let what will happen, his moft Chf iftian Majefty is 4 refolv'd not to withdraw any of his Troops from Germany, ' but to keep them there, and augment them, fo long as ' the Troubles fhall continue.'
