The Spanish Csfhier in this City has received Orders to fend back to Spain all the Remainder of the Money, which was ftnt into Italy under the Reign of the late Queen Dowager, and we are afraid the Troops will follow the Treafure. We are not lefs in Fear, left the King of Sardinia and the Imperial Generals fhould publifh a general Pardon for De-ierters, as foon as they arrive upon our Frontiers } which would infallibly caufe all our Troops to difband, they being compofed of little clfe but Men who have left other Service*. Paris, Aug. 26. A very important Negotiation is talk'd of between this Court and that of Drefden, and the Public is confirmed in this Opinion by the fending of an Ambaffa-dor lately thither. The Marquis d'lflar and Salarne, of an Italian Family, who is charged with this Embaffy, has Credential Letters not only to the King, but to the Republic of Poland, with which the Moil Chriftian King defired to keep up a good Intelligence. The News was received at Court with great Satisfaction, that the King of Great-Britain had nominated the Earl of Sandwich for his Plenipotentiary at the Provifional Congrefs of Breda, and his Majelly has thereupon ordered the Marquis de Pufieux to Jiaften his Departure. This Minifter has received his In-ftruttions, whieh are very favourable for the Advancement of a General Peace, if a definitive Difpofition can be made with Regard to the Auftrian Low Countries. We daily ex-peft News of the Duke d'Anville's Expedition againft Cape Breton, where he expected to arrive ^before the Eng-li(h Succours. Liege, Aug. 2 2.

Count Lowen-dahl haseftablifhed his General Quarters in the fame City, an,d the reft of his Corps is pofted at Vignamont, and a-long the Gaufeway of the Maefe. The Villages, from Waifufee to Warem, are alfo full of French. Prince Charles's Phyfician, who was taken up for holding Cor~ tefpemdence with the French, has been lent under a Guard to Venlo, in order to tike his Trial. We learn from Spa that Count Caunitz, late Governor of the Aullrian Netherlands, having taken the Waters, is gone from thence to his Caftle of Ritberg in Weftphalia, from whence after a fhort Time, he will repair uj V ienna, where the Emprefs has appointed him a very cortfiderable Employment.

Tha' the French Troops occupy moil of the paffages by which we can communicate with the Army of the Allies, we have neverthe'lefs received the ^Tews of all that paffrd till the 26th, ,'Jhey contain in Subftance, that upon Advice, that the French were in Meffionof Huy, PnoceCWles had "made a Motion with hi> Left, as if he intended to crofs the Mehaigne ; that t�ts Motion occafionei another of the French, who were polled dofe together between that River and Hannuye ; that the Agitation Was great on the 26th in the Army of 'h? Allie?, and that it was expected Prince Charles would, ihat Day or the rjext, make a general Motion with his ^fmy, in ofjjet to re-open the Paffages which the French had obftruaed. We arft the mere impatient to fee this Communication reftored, as there is aftoalfy in this City, a Train of 22 Pieces of ;Caanon lately arrivpd from Grrma-\ under an Efc&rt.of Huifars,.

Vienna, Auguft 24, N.S. Genera/ Neubaus is arrived here from the Army in Italy > and brings the following Relation of the Com pie at Viclory gained by the Imperial forces over the French and Spaniards at Rottofreddo on the Tidone, the xcth of Auguji 1746, and the fubfequent RediiRton of the Town of tla-centia. AS foon as Advice was received that the Enemy, not-withftahdihg our Difpofition cn the Tidone, had thrown three Bridges over the Po, and was paffed with their whole Force, it was refolve"d that the Army fhould break dp at Midnight on the 9th, and advance towards them, after having reinforced General Nadafti's fmall Corps with two Battalions and 100 German Horfe, who was to be left behind to obferve the Town and Garrlfon of Placentia. During our March we heard a great firing not far from the Town, and lOon afterwards learnt that the Enemy had not only burnt their Bridge at Placeotia, but had alfo blown up the Tete du Pont. The Evening before General Count Serbelloni, and General Count Neuhaus, were detached to Rottofreddo with the A vant Guard, confining of fix Battalions, as many Companies of Grenadiers, and 1000 Horfe, under General Baron Stampach, where General Serbelloni took Poll immediately, and at Break of Day was in Poffeffion of the Bridge over the Nuretta, with Palfy's and Roth's Companies of Grenadiers, whereupon the Enemy endeavoured to make themfelves Mafters of the faid Bridge, by a Detachment oFinfantry and Cavalry, but were obliged to retire without effectuating their Design, by the valiant Behaviour of Roth's Grenadiers, in which Attack the firft Lieutenant and fome Men were wounded. Jn the mean while General Count Gorani joined the abovefaid fix Battalions with ten Companies ef Grenadiers, and the Army advanced alfo, when it was refolved not only to follow the Enemy on the other Side of the Nuretta, but alfo to attack them immediately. In Confequence of which General Serbelloni, who was afterwards w6unded, and the Generals Neuhaus and Gorani, led up the 16 Companies of Grenadiers on the Right Hand Side of the Highway, and the fix Battalions en the Left, and attack'd the Enemy. The Fire was very great and obftinate on both Sides, and the Enemy's Cavalry forced our Infantry, notwithstanding the great Bravery which they mewed upon this Occafi�n; but General Stampach, with the Command under Lieutenant Colonel Baron Holly, fuc-coured them fo effectually, that the Enemy was at laft obliged to give way, and abandon to our Troops one Standard and fome Colours. Among the abovefaid 1000 Horfe were 300 Piedmontefe Dragoons, who behaved with uncommon Bravery, and took four Pair of Colours and one Standard from the Enemy, In the mean while the Army formed itfelF, as well as the Ground would allow of, by Reafon of the many Ditches and Thickets, and began the Attack with the greateft Vigour. The Enemy fought very obftinately, and as they had the Advantage of the Ditches and Thickets, we were oblige^, to difpute the Ground Step by Step, 'till at latt they were forced to retire over the Tidone, and we accompanied them with a continual Fire from our Artillery �s foon as we could gain the Rifing Ground, but as they occupied fome Caffines on the other Side, they fired continually from their Cannon upon us, 'till we had raifed two Batteries upon the faid rifing Ground, one of five great Pieces of Cannon, and the other of four fntaller, whereby the Enemy's Frre was greatly interrupted; at this Time General Bernclan, who was juft going to lead on againft the Enemy two Brigades-ofinfantry, four Squadrons of Cavalry, and John Palfy's Company of Carabineers, was fo defpera:e!y wounded by a Mufltet Ball, that he died foon after. The Battalions that had been in the Fire all this Time had fuffered greatly, and were very much fatigued, where updn General Roth was ordered to advance with the Left Wing, which he commanded, to the Center, and to pafs the faid River Tidone, and to fall into the Enemy's Flank ifpoffible; and at the fame Time General Gorani,- who had been reinforced with fome Battalions, and fupport^d by the Cavalry, turn e J alfo towards the Center, fa'that the Enemy feeing themfelves attacked on both Sides, cacfed freih Succ >urs of Cavalry and Infantry to advance continually, and made an incredible Fire upon our Troops, who notwithftanding advanced upon them, and obliged them to retire, during which they were conftantly followed by the Artillery from the two Batteries under Lieutenant Colonel Schremj.' At the fame Time General ABdlan, who was feconded by Detachments from the three Regiments of Cavalry" un der the Command of General Ccfant O Donel, advanced pon the Highway towards the Enemy, from whence jointly with General Paliavicini, who was returned, after having had a Wound drefled, which he had received by a Mufket Ball on the Head, he drove the Enemy awayi' ancl obliged the^m, after a very obftinate Defence, not onjy to abandon the Caflihes and the Cannon therein, but alfo to quit the Field of Battle ; whereby the Almighty declared the Vittory, which had been difputed duringEleveh Hours on our Side. On which Occafion it muft be impartially C| owned, to all their well defervefl Hohbqr, that the Gene- ^ rality and other Officers, as well as, common Sdldiefs, and every one, according to their particular Functions, dif- bt3 tinguifhed themfelves by their Bravery and Intrepidity ; and Jjt* alfo that the ArtilleriftsA under the Command of Lieutenant Colonel Schrems, did not a little contribute to the happy  Iftue of the Affair, and therefore have acquired a very par* ticular Praife. No General, except Bernclan, is killed, O but Palavicini, Serbelloni, and vogtem, are wounded, ** though not dangeroufly. Befides which, there are of Officers 14 killed, and 7 c < wounded, and of private Men 34$ killed, 1496 wounded. �| and 263 loft, amongft which are two Lieutenants Qnthe  * other Hand, the Lofs of the Enemy is not yet exaftly known, but to judge by Advices received^ and by the Reports of Prifonera and Deferters, it may be computed at above 10000 Men, of which we have ijoq Prifoners, together with 146 Officers,' whereof zz are French, the reft SpariiQi. This happy Victory has, by God's Affiftance, been followed byjthe farther Succefs of the Surrender of Placentia, General Nadafti having, during the Battle, and before he knew of the Succefs of it, fummoned.the Place, and the Commandant having demanded to capitulate, the Town and Citadel were delivered up,- with a Garrifon of 300 Men, and,6000 fickand wounded .Prifoners, and 84 Cannon, 30 Mortars, and a great Quantity of Ammunition and Provisions.
