The Regiria, BudHen ; and George, Beah; from Hamburgh, are arrived at Leoftoff. The Seaflower, Chebuke, from Befton, oiF Dover. Vienna, July 6, N.S. The following is the Account printed here, by Authority, of the late ViBory bktaih'd by the Einpr eft's troops over the French and Spaniards near Placentia, June 16, N.S. IT was on the 15th of June that the Commanding Field Marftial Prince' Litchtenfteln received certain Intelligence, that the Enemy Was refolved tojattackour Army the next Day with ah united FoTce. This Resolution was thelefs to be doubted of, as the Ehehiy, being more and more pfeffed, by the Approach of the King of Sardinia's Army, found themfelves obliged to tike a violent Resolution: For which Reafon, the Prince immediately made the neteffay Difpofitions to receive the Enemy in'a vigorous Manner. At Eleven of the Clock at Night, a Captain of Balayra Regiment, who was pofted at Quar-tjfolo, with 60 Horfe and 100 Warafdineis, W& attacked and obliged to retire. As foon as General Nadafti had Advice of the faid Retreat* he caufed a Front to. be formed' againft the DttcH on the Flank of his Right Wing ; but nbtwithftanding that, the Enemy drove away from thtnie alfo the Captain, and 100 Warafdiners- who were pofted there ; he being reinforced with 100 Men, retobk his, Poft. In the mean while, the .Enemy forced the Poft of Caffina Pelejjrina, which was occupied by 50 Huffars and sis many Warafdinersi General Brown, wltohact the fdle Command of the Left Wing, being aYrived, and having received Advice from General Nadafti, by Col. Macguire^ that the Enemy not' only drove back his Poll one after ahqther, but was alfo in -Nfarch in three Columns by Qgartifolo, upon the Road to Bobbio, and from GaUianay from whence it tyasjeafy to perceiveY that their Defign was to furround the Chirps dft-der General Nadafti, and to come behind our Cavafry of the Left' Wing,- Count Brown detached Major General Czock, and the Colonel of Vettes's Regiment, Epele, and ' tht Colonel of young Kqnigfegg, Marini* with ten Corn-; panies of Grenadiers, -over the Canal of St. Bonico, .to facilitate the Retreat of Nadafti's Corps, and to flop the j : Enemy till the faid Nadafti, with1 all the Hutfa'rs arid Vv> i \ iafdiners, and the German Cavalry under the Command, of | General Lu^?(J,'had^rfepaflfed the faid Canal. ^ This wa,s \ all performed' Th'.gbod' Order, ^tir which the faid General Czock and' the two Colonels Epele and Marini with the Infantry, who all diftinguifhed themfelVes exceedingly,- retired � die1 'Left- Wirij^' In the mean- while, jaehe'r^l Brown polled himfelf. with 8 Battalions arid/12 Companies of Grenadiers, which cempofed the Left Wingj together with General KehL, who was defperately wounded in- the Beginning", bffilnd thie CahaT of St. Bonico: He"aird"4or-dered the Generals Ldchefi and gerbellohl to join fhe/'Jo-fsntry With' thVGtfrmiri Cavalry, and General' N;a in die fined Order arid'fall'Ffoflt ^*.oC which theiftring^ifiirnediately' begairfrom'oHi! Artillery and Small Arms; arid;wi{h ibch" Sucdds'oniour Side; �h'at(the Enemy were obligedjto retire twice. In the mean while, our Cavalry df the'firft'1 Line {which cortfilted-of theRegli ments of Lobkowitz, Holy and Balayraj ender the excellent and commendable Condoift of General Lachefi, who was laudably fuppfcrted by General Serbelloni, with the Regiments of Cavalry of the fecond Line, viz. Beiiichm-gen and Kohaty) repafled the Canal of St. Bonico, jjierced^ the Enemy Sword in Hand, and drove them back. During which Timej dur Infantry and Artillery made an un-fpeakable Fire amdngft the Enemy, to which they were encouraged by the continual Prefence cf General Brown, and the Affiftance of the Generals Andlau and Vogtern, in- � fomuch that our Men did not once give Way, or fall into I the leaft Diforder. In Cohfeqaence of this Intrepidity on 4 our Side, the Enemy with their Right Wing was obliged to leave us the Field of Battle, with a Lofs of 8 Cannon and 20 Pair of Colours, and a great many killed and wounded: Whereupon General Brown ordered the Grenadiers and fome Infantry to follow the Enemy. They formed indeed a Battalion Quarre, but Colonel O Donnel^ of Balayra's Regiment, forced them in fuch a Manner wiih his Squadrons, that nbt only a great Number were killed, but aMb; by the Affiftance of the Infantry which was fent after him, about 3000 Prifoners, among which is the Spa-nifh Lieutenant General d'Araraburb, fell into our Hands i fo that in about the Space o'E three or four Hours, Maffhal Maillebois, with his whole Right Wing, was overthrown, and/totally vanqdifhed, and, at laft, driven back to his old Camp in the greateft Confufion. /The happy Soccefs of the faid Left Wing is incontefta-bly chiefly to be attributed to the fkilful and judicious Difpofitions of General Brown, and to his continually encouraging of the Men ; nor had the Generals Luchefi, Ser- Ibelloni, Andlau, Vogtern,- Gelhay arid Kolb, lefs Share in 'the faid Vi&ory, or even the other Officers and private Men, who certainly all did their Duty, one diftingaifhing , himfelf as much as the other, and have thereby gained immortal Honour,,.. In the fame Manner the Colonel of Schulemberg's Regiment, Binder, who commanded in the. new Battery, fell into the Flank of the retiring Enemy with tw"o Companies of Grenadiers, and not only did them.great Damage; but aHb made feveral Prifoners. With refpejft to, the Attack on our Right Wing, it is to be obferveri,; tlrait the Enemy begin before Day to attack our Oot-Poftsj wlwch General Marquis Novati not ohh/ re-infbrced with: z66 Men out of the four Battalions, which he had. with'Bint* but alfo put himfelf in a Pofture with the reft of his Troops, to receive the Enemy vigo- .rpdfly. In the mean' while the Fire encreafed, and at Day-light it was perceived that the Enemy hada very great Force upon the Road to CremOna, with a Defign to attack our Flank from thence. As fooh as Lieutenant f ield-MaT-(lhal Bernclau perceived that the Fire began to be great, ,he pofted himfelf with the abovefaid four Battalions unde> General Novati on the P6 Mortn, to oppofe the firft Attack of the Enfemy, and under his brave Conduct, and the valiant Afliftance of the faid General Novati, the fupe-j\qt Fotce of thie Enemy was withftood for fome Time, though they were obliged at laft to retire a little. But Field Maffhal Linden, and General Stampach caufed the two Regiments' of Cavalry, Savoy and Portugal, to advance, and, at the fame Time, the faid two Generals advanced with two Squadrons, and obliged them to retreat. The Infantry thereby gained Time to form again, which obliged the Enemy, nbtwithftanding their prodigious Fire, to retire. : At the. fame Time that the Enemy made their Attack on the Pa MqjOo, they attacked with great Vigour the Redoubt in. the Frontand'though Baron Forgatch, Captain of jSchulembourg's Regimerit, who1 was pofted there, re-pulfed the Eaemy three Times, yet at laft they carried it; after which, Enfrgiv Renard, of Berhclau's Regiment, maintain'd himfelf in the Caffine in the faid Redoubt for as.lppg while^. 'tilliat laft having received i'3� Wounds with the Bayonet, he was obliged to fobmicto1 the Superiority of the Enemy,'and render himfelf Prifoner. The E-nemy advanced:oh-that Side, with a great Force, and we could oppofe them with nothing but what was there under the" Command of Major NewhofF, viz. A Battalion of Schulemburg, t and jhe Companies of Grenadiers, and a Battalion of Beincliu (in which there remained only three Captains alive-, viz.. Sheffen, Utenhoffen, and Klaublitz; the Cohpnel Baron Geyerfpergibeing already killed.) Trfe Enemy thought tp fupp#st the Attack by. means 01 continual frefh T^qpps, and ^tterlipted it fix Times; but wa� always repulfed by the'Bravery, of the twaabbvementioned Lie^tenant.Fjelcr.Marfhjals, who by their own Example^ and expoTiag'of their Perfons continually,-encouraged their! Mei^to the Attack^; Ii^tb^emean while^-the Enemy madft theihfelvesRaftersVf.th_e Redoubt which covers the Road to Cremona ; but General, Bernclau, with the two, Regi-msrttsCorotedo ai& Andrafy> wliTch" Gfenera^ Pallairiclm had fent out of the fecond Line, to fuccour the Attafek*"bh :ii 1,1 1 thePoMorto, attacked again the Ehemy, and not only retook the laid Redoubts^ but alfo delivered Lieutenant Keck,- of KomgfeggV Regirrj'ent, who was pbfled in the Caffine dpori the Road; and who Was already wholly fur-rounded by the Enemy, arid had only defended himielt \a long by a continual Fire down the Stairsi: In this Affair the faid General teto&k the two Cannon which the Enemy had taken from us. Notwithftanding fnch eife&tial Oppolition on our Part^ the Enemy wonld by np Means give over, but advanced again in Front to the Redoutes on the Right of the Road to Cremona; and attacked therri again ; but General Bernclau having received from Count Pallavicini, the~Re-giments Vettes, Starerflberg and Daiin, he received the Enemy with fo brifk a Fire, that they retired with Precipitation, and attempted no farther Attack; Schmertylngj's Company of Carabineers, who were pofted behind the laid Regiments; purfued the flying Enemy Sword in Han^, and took from them three Pair of Colours. Colonel Count Gorani, wha was pofted in the College of St. Lazaro, and had repulfed the Enemy three Titties, and otherwife very much diftingui&ed himfelf, fell into their Frank, and obliged them tb retire with the utmoft Precipitation to their Camp, whither out Artillery accompanied them -, and the Royal Carabineers, who.were ordered to lupport this laft Attack, received great Damage. The Enemy ftill occupied oit the Po Morto the Poft they had taken there, but Count Palavicmi having caufed a Battalion of his Regimerit to advance trader the Command of his Major, Alleman, and to be* covered by the THgade of General Harfch, they were at laft, nbtwithftr-.ding that they defended themfelves for fome Time in the Caffine, obliged to fly from thence arfti J fo that the whole A&ion was ov?f ffgnali Right Flank with Staremberg's Regiment, in cafe the Enemy fhould attempt a frelh A;-tack. It is undeniable that the Enemy made Ufe of a fuperior Force agaioft onr Right Wing, and that the Attack was cohdafted by de Gages himfelf, who had three Lieutenant Generals, Douche, Seve,�a*d Caravahaltj with three Columns under hfhl. On the other Hand it is inconteftable, that if ever there was an Aftiqn wherein the Cavalry and Infantry vied in Bravery and Vigour, they have plainly -made h appear on this Occafioh : The Generals followed the Example of the Commanding Field Marihal, the other Officers that of the Generals, and the Horfe and Foot encouraged one another to the Attack, and fecond ed each other wherever Danger was prefent. In a Word, this Vidtory, through God's Affiftance, is, after the Commanding Field Marftial Prince Lichtenilein, moft certainly to be attributed* on the Left Wing to the excellent Conduct of General Brown^ and the laudable Affiftance of General Luchefi* and after them to the Generals Serbelloni, Andlau, Vogtern, Gellay and Kolb ; and on the Right Wing, to the diftingui'fh'd Valour of the Generals Linden and Bernclau, Novati, Marulli, Harfch, Schmertzing and Stampach ; and to give the dther Officers an impartial Pratfe* it mail be owned,, that every one fought to diilin-gui'(h himfelf wherever the Occafion prefented itfelf. The Artillery deferves alfo its Pratfe, and Equity efpe-cially demands it here from the great Lofs occafioned tojthe Enemy thereby ; which good EfFeft is wholly to be attributed to the Commanders, Lieutenant Colonel Schrems and Captain Telfcher, who both continually encouraged thch* Men, and caufed an inceffant Fire to be made, by which they, as well as the others, have acquired a well deferved Reputation. The Lofs of the Enemy, according to their own Conf-feffioiij amounts'to between 14 ,and 1508c Men, every thing included'; the Number of the found Prifoners, French and Sjanifb'j e^dufive of the. Qfficersj amounts to 2494!, and wounded to 2040^ in all 4534.
