On the 23d, there was a very fmart Aflion near Albenga, between tfaree; BattalJQn.s of our Troops, and a Body of - Spaniards, French, andGenoefe, which proved very bloedy on both Sides, tho' the'Eftfeftiies loft more in it than. we. Our Lofs, we are told, amounts to between 3 and 400 Me;n, two Companies of Grenadiers, and two Piquets being taken Prifoners; but the reft of our Men, notwithitanding maintaining their Potts. Chamberry, July 29. Ten er 12 Serjeant?, and 24 Swifs Soldiers have pa/Fed by here, being Part of the 2000 Men polled at Annecy. They had with them their Arms, and a good Sum of Money, deftinM for the Payment of thofe Troops 1 but we have fince heard they are Deferters, and that there is a large Party fent in Purfuit of them1'; the French Troops that have been drawn out of Burgundy and Franche Compte, being not above fix Battalions, have paf-fed by Grenoble towards the Brianconnois, and the Frontiers of Dauphiny. We thought that the Spaniards in this Province, amounting to 4 or 5000 Men, would have been joined by a Body of the fame Force, in order to make" a X)iverfion together on the Side of Exilles; but it appears that the Death of the King of Spain has overthrown this Project. The Spaniards, who were in Readinefs to march, being commanded to wait where they are, for frefh Orders. A Fire has broke out in the Fpreft of St. Claude, by what Accident is not known, and'a great Number of Peafants are at Work to cut down Trees, and make Openings, in order to flop the Progrefs of the Flame's before it gets hold of any neighbouring Town. Camp at filer, Aug. t^. Skirmilhes continue daily, ef-peciallyin the Wood on pur-Right, where the'Enemies have been fo unkindly treated, that they feem- to have no Stomach to appear there again. OurHuffars continue alfo to bring in Prifoners and Booty to the general Quarters. The Left of our Army winds round the Villages Spy and Frangipani, Hufiars, with the Battalions from Namur, encamp upon the Flank of this Wing, which is cover'd by two fmall Redoubts, and a large Battery erected upon an Eminence, which commands the Enemies Right. Our Right is covered by General Trips, who is polled at Leit-neux, General Baronai near Afche, and Count Daun, who has taken up hfs Quarters at St. Germain. The Corps de Referve encamps between the Village of St. Deuis and the Centre. ' Brufels, Aug. 15. There is no more Talk here of the fpeedy Arrival of the King pf France, and we. even begin to doubt, whether he will come at all, on Account of the Diftempers that reign In .the Army, and carry off a great many People. Count de Clermont, 3 Prince of the Blood, and the Duke de Duras, are ill among others. According to Advices we have received from, the Camp,at Valheim, it was on the 11 th, that an Exftrefs' from VVfailles brought Marihal Saxe the Patent of GeneraUffimo of the King's Armies; and on the 1 zth in^the Afternoon, the Prince of Conti fat out frqm the Army to return to Paris. It is not yet known, whether he retires by Order of the Court, or �f his own Choice, However that be, we are allured that he difcover'd a great deal of Difcontenr, and that the Count ' Admiral Anfon will fail with the Fleet for the Channel Service, as foon as the Centurion is ready. By the Martha, Crawford, arrived at Londonderry in z6 Days from Philadelphia, we have the following Advices, viz.-- Philadelphia, June 24. A Gentleman who came laft Night from New York fays, that they had Advice there, of a 50 (fome fay 70) Gun French Man of Warj laden with Furs from Canada to Old France, being taken by two Englifla Men of War, in St. Lawrence's Bay; and that a Letter which was found on board her, mentions their being in want of all kind Trf^Warttke Stores at Canada ; and alfo of their having no Salt to cure their Winter Provifions : So that if our Men of War are but Vigilant, we doubt not of making an eafy Conquert. In a Letter from a Gentleman at New-York, to his Friend here (Philadelphia) the abve is alfo mention'd ; and like-wife, that a New York Privateer, and one belonging 10 Rhode Ifland, had met with a large French Ship of 16 Guns, and 50 Men, from St. M Joes, laden with Bale Goods, and took her after an Engagement of five Glaffes, in which*trre-?aptainr of both -the -Privateers were kiif'd. She is fince brought into Rhode Ifland. We hear, that a General Thankfgiving will fliortly be appointed for the Suppreflion of the-Rebellion by the Duke's Victory at Culloden, on the 16th of April iaft ; an Anniverfary the more remarkable, becaufe it was on that very Day of the Month, juft 50 Years before this V ic-tory, that the Thanks of the Nation were put up to Heaven, by Publick Authority, for the Deliverance *of King William III. of Glorious Memory, from the horrid Affaf-fination Plot. We hear, that Lord Lovat, juft before he fet out from Northampton for London, made great Enquiries after the Landlady of the Inn where he lay ; and jpon his being informed that flie was not in the way ; and aft'd what he wanted in particular with her, faid, That be only dclired to falutt her, for that he had kiJCd every Landlady in his Journey thither; hut would be content ivitb paying his Re-jfefts to her as he went that way back again. Several People having imagin'd that the Hammer of the Bell at St. Paul's, from the deadnefs of the Sound, was muffled, we are informed that the Stock was quite rotten, and the faid Bell funk above three Inches out of its Place, which occafion'd the Alteratkn of the Sound ; and the Clock will only ftrike the Quarters, till there is a new Stock to the faid Bell. C^^Wgdnefday laft died at Hackney, Lawrence Todd, ''"FJqra^5enflema%^^ in the Weft- Indies. . Yefterday the Body of a Woman was taken up by the Ballaft-men at Weitminfter-Bridge, and was carried to St. Margaret's Church-yard, in order to be own'd.
