Daily Advertiser (Newspaper) - May 14, 1943, London, Middlesex V SAT URDAY, Ma V 14 �743- DeaU May 12. . E M A INS, his Majefty's Ship the A�guila, and the Ships as per laft. Yefterday arrived a Mail from Holland. From the general Quarters at Schardingen, May. ii- On the 6th, a Courier from Franconia brought Letters to Prince Charles of Lor- rainy advifing, that the Auftrian, Englifh, and Hanoverian Troops, had almoft all paffed the Rhine, and that as foo'n as the Heflians came up, they would continue their March towards the Maine. It was added top, that the King of Great Britain was expe&ed in a (hort Time, at the Army, in order to direft the Operations. - Prince Charles communicated this News to all his General Officers, who there* mpou expreffed an extraordinary joy.. The Soldiers, who had on this Occafion great Plenty of Bread and Beer diftributed amongft them, made the'Air eccho with their Cries of Lang live the King of Great Britain, and all the Friends ofthe S�ueen. On the 8th, General Bernclau was detached by Prince Charles, with a Body of Horfe and Dragoons, to attack Truffieren, which wis poffeffed by the French after having inverted it, he caufed it to be attacked with fo much Vigour, that Capt. la Croix, the famous Partifan, who commanded there, was obliged, with part of his People, to furrender themfelves Prifoners of War. The General, aftelr having left 260 Dragoons in Truffieren, advanced to Pfarkircben on the other Side of the Rot, where he found the reft of la Croix's, and two other Companies, amounting in the whole to about 700, which were alfo made Prifoners of War._ On the 9th, at Daybreak, Prince Charles began to march with 14 Battalions and 56 Squadrons, and advanced to Erblach and Dobbel, where he found General Minuzzi, having under his Command a Body of about 10 Battalions and 18 Squadrons. Prince Charles caufed a Detachment of Hfcrfe to flank the Enemy, whilft he attacked them in Front with his Infantry and the reft of his Horfe. The Adtion continued near five Hours with the utmoft Obftinacy. The Enemy, who were poftefted of very advantageous Ground, made a vigorous Refiftance. The Troops which had flanked the Enemy having obliged them to quit the high Ground, the Confufion was fo great amongft them, that we gatnfed a moft complete Vi&ory. We have taken the Generals Minuzzi, Preyfing, and Gabrielli, Prifoners, who were all three wounded. The fliaeter'd Remains of the Body we beat, took fhelter in Braunau, A letter from the Court of Munich, dated May 12. The News in thefe Parts begin to be every Day more ferious than other : That which we received *rsft Poft has occafion1 d a great Confternation here. � The famous Partisan La Croix, with about 700 Men, was attackM by a Party of Auftrians four Days ago at Pfarkirebfn, and obliged to furrender, with all his People, Prifoners of War. He fent to demand Succours of the French Troops canton'd between the Ifer and the Rot, but found they were retir'd towards the Ifer. The Country being thus open between the bin and the Ifer, we began, ^fter the. Receipt of rhis News, to apprehend that bad Confequences would refult from it, and that the Auftrians would make Incurfions on that Side. Our Fears were but too foon verified, by the News which we Yefterday received of the Defeat of the Body commanded by General Minuzzi. The Auftrians perceiving that the French Troops were removed towards the Ifer, fuddenly attacked this General, who was encamped with more than 7000 Men at Erblach upon the Inn. He was very vigoroufly attached in the Front, whilil the Hungarians, commanded by General Baroniai, flanked them. General Minuzzi defended him-fclf five Hours with the utmoft Bravery, till being wounded and carried out of the Fight, he fell into the Hands of the Enemy. Count Seckendorff believing, after the Affair of Pfqr&irehen, that Minuzzi would probably be ei/� irrafs'd, had immediately fent an Officer to order him to turn off to Braunau; but he came too late, and Count Seckendorff himfelf, who prefemly afterwards fet out for Alt Ottingen, did not get there till feveral Hours after the Aftion. He was join'd at this Place by 8go Horfe which Col. Neifs broDght back from the Fight, and bywrhom we learn that the Remains of the Hone had thrown themfelves into Braunau. The Count de Hollenftein, natural Son of his Imperial Majefty, was mortally wounded and taken Pri- foner. The Counts Minuzzi, Lieutenant-General, Preyfing and Gabrieli, Major Generals,, were likewife wounded and taken Prifoners, as well as the Baron de Meeft�3ch, Colonel of the fine Regiment of the King of Sweden's Heflian Dragoons. The two Counts Levifani are alfo wounded. Befcdes the Officers of Diftin�ion which are already named, there are many others in the Number of the Dead and Wounded. Count Seckendorff, fince his Arrival at Alt Ottingen, has exadtiy acquainted Marfhal Broglio with the State of Things, defiring him to caufe 30 or 40 Battalions to march with all Diligence, in order to make a Diver-Con, which may oblige the Enemy to repafs the Inn. We don't exa�Uy know the Lofs of the Auftrians; but it cannot be inferidr to ours, confidering the Bravery with, which our Troops defended themfelyes againft an Enemy which was much ftronger both in Foot and Horfe. Stockholm, May 16. Count Teflin continues ftedfaffly iefolv'd to refign all his Employments. 'Tis feid his Difguft jarofe from a Book that was publilhed; Wherein the Count and the prefent Miniftry were perfq.n&lly attackM in the fevereft Manner, The States have not yet taken tfceir Refolution toon the Memorial prefented by Cottnt Teflin upon that Subjeft. 'Tis affur'd, that the King-has defir'd him to continue his Employments; but he anfwer'd his Majefty, that in every thing elfe he ihould glory in obeying his Commands, but that in this his Honour would not permit- him to change his Refolution.
