N.Sl Advice is juft brought from Marlhal Bathiani's Quarters, that the Enemy, who have been for three Days paft in continual Motion, are advancing towards us, which gives us Reafon to expect, a general Engagement very foon.

For tha* Purpofe they drew down their Boats which they had apon the Lambro, and brought up the.
