Same other cf their A'tacks have a!f> been unfuccefsful ; ;.r.d one Night a Poft of their', upon a Bridge over the Argens, was attack'd by Order of M. Belleifle, and thofe mho guarded it cut to Pieces. The Marfhal advancing with 60 Companies of Gr.mdiers, and feme other Troops, the Enemy retired two Leagues ; and this Morning a Courier is arrived from him to M. de las Minas, intreating him to advance with his Army, and join that of France, in order intire'y to clear the Province. Some have been fo fanguine to fay, that within i 2 Days there will not be an Enemy left in the whole Country : but, in the mean Time, M.

It is juft now given out, that the Enemy,- informed of the March of our Army, are affembling all .eir Forces, to wait for the Marfhal's coming up, and that they have even raifed the Blockade of Antibe?, the Troops that formed it being ordered to join the Auftrian General.  Marftiila, Jan. 5. The Crew of a Ship juft now ar-liv'd report, that they heard Nothing as they came by Antibes, which makes it conjectured, that the Place has capitulated. There is alfo a Rumour,that General Brown has fent all his Equipage back cv;rthe VaTO, for Want of Subfiifance. Florence, Dec. 3:. The Revo't of the Genoa/e having obliged the Auftrian Generals Marcelli, Andlau, ^nl Vog-thern, to abar.don the Polls alTigncd th^m in the E*ft;rn Revitra, they united their Troops and retired to Sarz\r,a, where-600 Auflrians -were before.

They feem very much enraged, efpe-cially the luster, at the cruel Treatment of their Countrymen, by the Revolted Genoefe, and declare they have taken Oa"th to be fignally revenged. The Expcdicton agaiufi the Republick it a little retarded by the long Marche which the Froops have to make ;n a Seufbn fo little proper, and. by theDifliculty found in getting- together the nceell'ary Provinons. It is believed, however, that the Marquis will foon be in a Condition to march. Nice, Jan *z. The Want of 1'iovifions has obliged General Brown to retrsat a little this Way. He is willing, at the fime Time, to draw near Antibes, in order to facilitate the Reduction of it. The King of Sardinia has fent him, for th3t Purpofe, Part of the Heavy-Artillery found in Savona.
