Came down his Majefty's Sloop Hawk ; and the Fanny, Gibfon, for Lifbon ; and remain with the Duke Man of War, Swift Privateer, and feveral of the Outward-bound. Arrived Charming Molly, Gelly, from Leghorn ; and the Italian Merchant, from ditto, laft from Dublin. Wind N.E. LONDON. Since our laft arrived the Mail from Holland. Letter from Bologna, dated April 3, N.S. * The 29th of laft Month in the Night, a Column of * 8000 Spanifh and Neapolitan Troops began their March ' towards the Quarters occupied by the Auftrians, and ar- * rived at Break of Day at Catolica; in which P6ft there * was a Picket of Auftrian Troops, who made off to Arion * where having joined another Picket, they both retired to * Rimini, being purfued all the Way by the Spanifh and � Neapolitan Cavalry. The 3 ift thefe two Pickets having * joined at Rimini the AuftrianTroops they found there, to � the Number of 4.000 Men, this Corps made a Shew as * if they would ftand their Ground ; but they retreated * foon after, lofing 700 Men of their Rear Guard, who � were taken Prifoners. The Spaniards and Neapolitans * having advanced to Rimini, took Poft there. The Body * of Auftrian Trotps that had jaft evacuated that Place, re- * treated to another Corps that was pofted at Savigoano, � from �hence they marched together towards Cofena, * where Prince Lobkowitz had fixed his Head-Quarters. � The Order being given by the Prince for a Retreat, it � was executed the next Morning, the Auftrian Troops ' taking [the Route of Forli: Before they quitted Cefena, * they demanded a Contribution of about 8000 Crowns, � which the Inhabitants refufed at firft to pay ; however, ' they foon after refolved to carry in the Sum, for Fear of * being deliver'd up to Pillage. As foon as this Money * was received, the Auftrians marched to Forli. The ' Spaniards and Neapolitans having relied themfelves a few 'Hours at Rimini, they took the Route of Savignano and "Cafena, and a Detachment of CavaJry^tiiat was*fcnt * out before them, pick'J up fome more Prifoners in 'the Rear Guard of the Auftrians. The Latter halted ' at Forli, almoft all Day the ill Inftant> and marched ' away to Faenza in the Evening. The Spaniards and ' Neapolitans left Cefena the fame Afternoon and arrived at ' Forli Yefterday Morning. The Head Quarters of the * Auftrian Army were removed Yefterday from Faenz3 to * Imola, as we heard this Morning from an Officer fent * hither by Prince Lobkowitz, with Orders to fend away to * Modena and Ferrara, the Provifions that had been laid * up here for his Army. The Auftrians have juft laid three * Bridges over the Panaro, viz. one at the Road that leads * to Modena ; the other to Buon-porto, and the third to ' Solera. They are fending away their Sick and Wounded ' into the Modeneze. By Advices received this Afternoon * we find, that the Spaniards and Neapolitans are arrived * at Lugo. A Quarter-Mafter is juft arrived here, charged ' to prepare Quarters in this City and Places adjacent for * the Auftrian Troops. The Army is to be up To-morrow ^Morning, Part of their Baggage being already arrived. .. According to Letters from Turin, they talk there of fending Prince Lobkowitz a Re-inforcement of eight Ba-tallions and two Regiments of Horfe. The new Works atConi were to be finifhed by the 15th of April!, N.S. and befides the Artillery already there, 86 Pieces of new call Cannon are to be fent thither. As for Demont, they reckon that all the Fortifications may be re-eftablifhed by the Middle of May. All the Piedmonteze Militia with feveral Batallions, a few Regiments of Dragoons, and the independant Companies, are marched towards Maro, in order to oppofe the Paflage of the Spaniards. The Court has received Advice of a new Action in the Neighbourhood ofOneglia, between the Spanifh Troops and fome Militia cr Peafants of the Valleys of Piedmont, in which the former had 15 4. Men killed, wounded, or made Prifoners ; and the Piedmonteze had only 20 Men killed, and 2bout 50 Wounded Letter from Munich, April 10, N.S. 1 All the neceffary Difpofitious are made for the Ekaor's * Departure, in cafe Things fhould take fo bad a Turn as * tof orce him to quit this City. As Matters now ftand, it * is more likely that his Electoral Highnefs will chufe to - * join his Army rather than go any where elfe. All de-' pendson the Succefs of a Battle on the Iffer. The Elec-' tor's Army, which is affembled near Freyfingen, encreafes 4 every Day. The Count de Loos, Minilter from the ' King of Peland Elector of Saxony, had a long Audience ' on the 8th Inftant, which was folowed by a Conference ' with the Veldt Marfhal Count Thoring. We have fince ' learned that the Object of this Audience and Conference ' was an Overture made by that Minifter, touching the * fpeedieft means|for delivering this Country from the Ca-' lamities of War. According to this Overture, the Elec-' tor fhould embrace a Neutrality, the French, Heflian ' and Palatine Troops be difmift'd, the Elector break up * his Army, and put it into Quarters of Refrefhments; ' the Auftrian Troops fhould evacuate the open Country of ' Bavaria and the Upper Palatinate, but remain provifio-' nally in the ftrong Towns, until the Conclufion of a final * Accommodation, which the Maritime Powers fhould be * invited to bring about by their Mediation and good Offi- * ces. The Elector being willing to confult all his Mini-' fters about this weighty Affair, a grand Conference was ' held Yefterday at the Palace j but the Sentiments were 1 divided. In the mean time, we perceive a great Hurry ' and Buitle among the Foreign Miniilers, and thofeof his ' Electoral Highnefs. M. de Chavigny, the French Mi-' nifter, the Envoy from Madrid, and the Pruflian Mini-' fter, went to Court Yefterday and ftaid there very late ; ' after which M. de Chavigny difpatched a Courier to ' Paris. The Emprefs has declared, that fhe will not ' leave this City, let what will happen, being perfuaded ' that the Auftrians will: have due Regard to her Rank and ' Birth. As, by the Pofition of the Army near Freyfin-' gen, all the Country lies open between the Inn and the ' Iffer, the Auftrian Parties begin to make Incurfions even ' in the Neighbourhood of this City, and we hear that fe-' veral Companies of Warafdins appear at Neideck.' They write from Cologn, of the 16th Inft. N.S, that the Dutch and Hanoverian Troops abandoned on the 10th Limbourg, Runckel, and feveral other Polls which they held on the Lahne, and took Poft the fame Day behind the River Erbach, fince which they have pitch'd their Tents in the Neighbourhood of Nieuwied. The Auftrians have likewife contracted their Quarters, and finifhed their Bridge on the Rhine the 14th in the Night. Letters from Breflau fay, that the Pruflians great Magazine of Forrage at Neifs has been quite burnt down by fome Accident, with all that was in it; but Advices directly from Neifs fay, that the Fire broke out at one of the fmall Magazines, and confumed only 10,000 Rations. We hear from Drefden, that a Reinforcement of 5000 Men have begun their March for the Saxon Army that is to a�t in Bohemia. And that M. Villiers, the Britifh Minifter, has got the Court's Confent to the March of the Succours ftipulated by Treaty for the Defence of Hanover. We have a Confirmation-Ircm Ghent, that the French have marked out a Camp near the Bridge of Behlem, within a fmall Diftance of Bruges; and that the Inhabitants of the open Country begin to run for flielter into the Towns, with their belt Effect.-. They add, that Lieutenant General Halay, (we fuppofe they mean Hawley) was likewife marking out a Camp at Mariekerque near Ghent. Breflau, April 10, N.S. The King of PrufhYs Defign to ditlodge the Hungarian Forces on the other Side of the Oder, met with fo ftrong a* Refiftance, as not only to be defeated, but it feems, a great Part cf the Command appointed for that Purpofe, was fallen upon by the Hungarians in the Neighbourhood of of Zultz, and forced to retreat with great Lofs. Between Neuitadt and Bennefchau in Upper Silefta, fuch another Party found an Opportunity, a few Days ago, to feize upon the Tranfport of Regimental Cloaths going for the Pruffian Regiments in thofe Parts, which Lofs. alone is computed at 15,000 Rixdollars. Moreover, one of the Corn Deliverers brought hither Yefterday the difagreeable News, that the little City of Rofen-berg, garrifoned by Pruffian Troops, was fo fun'oufly attacked by the Enemy the beginning of this Week, that notwithftanding the former defended t'hemfelvcs bravely for a whole Day, the Enemy having fet Fire to the Town in four different Places, they were obliged to retreat, as was alfo a Body of the Yellow Huffars in the fame Neighbourhood, and all fled towards Nambflau.
