On Thurfday laft the Amazon wai chai'd into the Fleet by a Man of War, on tearing of which Admiral Martin fent two Ships in Chace of the frenchman. The Amazon look'd into Breft and Hochelle, and favv no Fleet in either Place. Wind S.W. Southampton, July 1.

The Hannah, Kilner, from Lancafter, failed from Antigua, the zcjih of April for Jamaica. Yefterday arrived the Mail from Holland; Florence, June 18. Generel Chatejletis te fet oat immediately from Leghorn, in order to take upon him the Command of the Army that is forming about Pifa. We hear, that among the Difpatches which were found jn the Mails taken from the two Spanifh Couriers fome Time ago, there was a Letter,from the .Queen of Spain to the Infant Don Philip, relating taa.Requeft. made by the Generals that they might canvey his Highnefs to Genoa, to be out of all JDanger, wherein her Majefty exprefsly declares, ' That he rauft not think of retiring, having been fent in-* to Italy to acquire an Eftablifhment Sword in Hand ; and *. that, if he defires ever*gain to fee Madrid and his Mo ^-�ther he ought never to abandon his Army.' From the Imperial Camp near Placentia, June 21. The Xofs of the Enemy injtftfi Battle qf the 16th augments daily, thefincereft People amongft themfelves acknowledging it amounts to 14,000 Men. Tho' we reckon'd only 4000 of their (lain on the Field of Battle, and 5090 Prifoners, we are affured, that all,the Convents and many of the Churches in Placentia, are full of their wounded. There was a Sufpenfion of Arms on the iSth, 19th and 20th in order to bury the Dead, and on the firft of thofe Days Te Deum was fung under a tripple Difcharge of all the Artillery and Small-Arms alternately, which was repeated again in the Evening. The Prince of Lichtenftein is gone to Padua, to endeavour to re-eftablifh his Health, and the Marquis de Botta, as the oldeft General of Artillery, commands in hi* Place, but acts in Concert with Count Brown. The Day before Yefterday we heard the Cannon diftin&ly from Caftel> St. Giovanni, where Te Deum was then fung in the King of Sardinia's Army. We expect daily thar*the. Enemy will make a new Attempt to difen-gage themfelves before they are quite hemm'd in by his Sardinian ^ajefty; There is a general Report, that the Infant Don Philip is preparing to get off as loon as he can either to Genoa or Venice. Cremona, June 24. Some of the Enemy's Troops are come again within a few Days to poft themfelves at Co-dogno ; whether to find Provifions which they very much want at Placentia, or to open a Way for the whole Army, is uncertain : Perhaps they have both in View. It do s not feem, however, that they will fucceed in the latter, un-lefs they find fome other Paffage : For they have this Night made a frefh Attempt to difengage themfelves, by fending forward 2000 Men, who were to clear the Road for the Reft j bust this whole Corps was immediately fur- iounded, and 1264 Men taken, befides thofe that were lilled ; fo that a very few of them got back again. Brujfels, July 4. The Detachment of 500 Men, oom-tnanded by Col. Pandrau, which was detach'd on Friday Evening laft in Purfuit of a Party of Auftrians, who were marching Wards Halle, in order, as was reported, to car ry off the Garrifon, returned Yefterday without having j feen any Troops. Orders have been fent to all the Abbies in Brabant to fend each, within three Days, 100 large Blocks of Wood to Great Willebroek, for the Service of the Army. There is a Report, that M. Saxe is going to change his Difpofitions, and as the Forages that have been collected, are brought hither by Water, we fuppofe he will next encamp between Mechlin and Lou vain. It is faid, that St. Ghillain is blocked up by a Regiment of Dragoons, and that the Prince of Conti has fent Troops into the Neighbourhood of Charleroi, in order to inveft. it at a Diftance. From the Camp of the Allies at Ter-beyden, July 5. A Fort is actually erecting upon the Dyke at Steenhoven, within half a League of Gertrudenburgh. All our Cavalry is employed in making up a large Quantity of Hay, which, joined to the other Difpofitions that are vifible, feems to predict an approaching March; but whether to re-enter the Auftrian Brabant, or to meet the Imperial Succours, we cannot guefs. We expect daily the Arrival of the feven Englifh Battalions, which, with the Imperia-lifts, will make us up compleat 80,000 Fighting Men. PJ>. As the Cannon has been heard from Willemftadt, we are in Hopes the Englifh are landed. Breda, July 5. It is very confidently given out, that the Army will decamp in 9 or 10 Days, and march to* Braxfchoten, in order to attack the French, if tne latter wait for its coming up. . Utrecht, July 8. The following is faid to be the Sub-ftance of the Anfwer given to his Britannic Majefty, by Meffieurs Boetzlaer and Hop, their High Mightinefles Minifters at the Court of Londoru viz. � That being fo ' ftrictly allied by Treaties to the Crown of Great-Britain, * and interefting themfelves fo flrongly in the Prefervation ' of his Majefty's lawful Government, as well as in the ' Maintenance of the Religion, Liberty and Tranquillity of his Kingdoms, every Attempt to difturb them could not but afflict their High Mightinefles in the laft Degree: * That their Averfion te fuch Attempts being known, they couia not bear that a Perfon, invefted with the Chara&er of their Ambaffador, mould; take the Liberty to intercede, � or fupport the Interceffions in Favour of Rebels : That 4 M. Van Hoey would have confidered, that the Inter-' ceffion of the Court of France, in this Cafe muft naturally prove more prejudicial than advantagious, fince his Britannic-Majefty, if he had been infliaM to {hgw.;Mer-' cy, would have done it of his own proper Motion, and ' not at the Interceffion of a Power with whom he is at ' open War, and who, under Cover of that Grcumftance, * had fupported the Rebellion; and that therefore M. VanHoey might fairly have excufed himfelf from taking ' upon him to tranfmit M. D'Argenfon's Letter^ But as ' this Minifter had purfued an oppofite Conduit, their * High MightinefTes declare, that they difarprove it entire-ly; that they difavow it j and that willing to put an * End to the Difcontent, which fuch a Proceeding had * caufed in the Caurt of Great-Britain, and defiring to ' give the fignal Satisfaction which that Court had de- * manded upon this Occafton, they had fent Orders to M. ' Van Hoey to write a polite and decent Letter to the ' Duke of Newcaftle, drawn up with fo much Circum-' fpe&ion, and in fuch Terms, that his Britannic Majefty ' might have Room to be fatisfied with the Reparation of ' fuch a Fault: And that their High MightinefTes had ' commanded'him, at the fame Time, carefully to avojd, * for the future, the giving any juft Subject of Scandal or * Difconfcnt to the Allies of the Republic.' LONDON. By the laft Advices from the Camp before Mons, a ge neral Aftault was expected out of Hand, there being two Breaches large enough for 50 Men thro' each. According to Letters from Italy, it appears that the Al lied Army, in the late Aftion, confifted of 46,000 Men : And it is thought, that Count Gages, if he Cannot retreat to the State of Genoa (which feems improbable) will en deavoar by croffing the Po, to get into the Geaoefe Domi nions, and fo make his Way towards Naples thro' the Ec clefiaftic State.
