General Advertiser (Newspaper) - July 15, 1846, London, Middlesex The General Ad vertifer. Numb. 3656. TUESDAY, July 15, 1746. -  u > W u ig Deal, July 13. EM A IN in the Downs the Vulcan, and the Outward-bound formerly mentioned. Wind Eaft. Dover, "July 13. Arrived the St. George, Hart, from Oporto, lafl from Rye for Colchcfter ; and the Philip and Mary, Granger, from Sunderland. Wind Eaft. Plymouth, July 11.

Yefterday arrived the Mail from Holland. "Bobgna, June 5. We have Letters from Placentia which fay, that the City is full of Sick and Wounded, of whom about 100 die every Day. The Mortality among the Cattle rages much in the Modenefe, and is got into ibme Dif-. tricts which till lately had continued free. Pizzighitofte, July 5. As our Generals feem refolved to get Poffeuion of Placentia, the Spaniards, on the contrary, do all in their Power to preferve it. Having learned, that the Fire was not only doubled againft the City, but that the Approaches had been confiderably advanced fince their Retreat, arid being alfo informed of the great Number of Scaling-ladders and Fafcines that were providing, they have lent back to Placentia a Part of their Troops and Artillery ; but the main Body of their Forces continue on this Side of the Po. Notwithstanding thefe Precautions, all the Nobility, and many of the richeft Citizehs, fearing the Capture of the City (now that the Infant hirafelf is no longer in Safety) have retired with their Families into the Lodcfan, the Jvlilanefe and the Cremafco. The Want of Provifioni, which the Enemy fo fer,fibly felt at Placentia, and which was one Caufe of their crofting the Po to gain a little more Room, attends them ftill wherever they go: For befides, that there is not fufficient in the Places they occupy, the exceflive Contributions, and the Violence with which they exact them, deprive the Inhabitants of the little they had left, fo that they are not better off in the Mi-ianefethan they were at Placentia. As Salt was one thing they chiefly wanted, and they had taken all from the Magazines at Lodi, Orders have been fent to Milan to fupply the Inhabitants with no more, while the Enemy have Power tofeizcit. We fhall know more concerning Affairs after the Arrival of General Brown, who is expected To-j 'j� morrow at Baron Ruth's Quarters. O Milan, July 5. According to the Report of Deferters, the Marquis de Caftellar is under Arreft for having refufed in which the French Detachments have not fome Skirmifh with the Auftrian Irregulars, of whom there are 3000 at Tirlempnt, who very much interrupt the Communication with Louvain. Antwerp, July 19. Two or three hundred Auftrian H.uffars having appeared before the Gates ef this City, the Commandant fent out of the Garrifon 3 Squadrons, and fome Cbmpanies of Grenadiers, to drive them back. A very ebftinate Battle enfued, in which many loft their Lives on both Sides : But the HuiTars were, at laft, obliged to give way to the great Superiority of the French. Hague, July z 1. Yefterday a Courier arrived from Paris, with Difpatches from Count Waflenaer. We have certain Advice, that his Catholic Majefty, Philip V. King of Spain, died at Madrid of an Apoplectic Fit, and feve-ral Foreign Minifters have difpatched Couriers to give Information of it to their Courts. There are Letters from Paris which fay, they have an Account there of the taking of Placentia by the Imperialjib, and that they found in it about 8000 Sick and Wounded, but only 800 Men in Garrifon, Count Gages having drawn ofF the reft ; and that they found alfo 153 Pieces of Cannot, 50 of which are marked with the Arms of Genoa, befides a great Quantity of Baggage. We wait impatiently for the Confirmation of this important Piece of News. Venlo, July 17. The Body of Imperial Troops, commanded by General Count Palfi, who have encamped here for fome Days, palled the Maefe Yefterday and Tp-day, and will march To-morrow to Myle, on the 19th to Ome-len and Aften, on the 20th to Heefe and Stripp, and on the 21 ft to Peer in the Country of Liege, where it will join che Army under M. Bathiani. LONDON. According to the laft Letters from the Allied Army in Brabant, it marched on the 19th, N.S. to encamp atDief-fen, within a League and a half of Eyndhoven, from whence it is to proceed to Maeftricht. We hear from Mantua, that the Auftrians are going to build a new Bridge over the Po, in order the more to ftreighten the Allies in the Milanefe, and that a frefh Mif-underftanding is broke out between Count Gages and the Marfhal de Maillebois. There has been a Skirmifh in the Neighbourhood of Nice, between 30 Companies of the King of Sardinia's Troops, and a Body of about 3000 French, with fome Spanifh Cavalry. The Decifion was to the Difadvantage of the Piedmontefe, who were obliged to abandon fcveral PafTagesthat communicate with the State of Genoa, to which there is now a free Opening from Provence. Letters by the Way of Paris, as well as from other Quarters, confirm the Death of the King of Spain, which they fay was fudden. 'J hey write from Naples, that Conferences are very frequent at Court upon the prefent Situation of Affairs, and that it is thought the Royal Family will retire to fome 0-ther Place, in Cafe of any Attempt againft that Kingdom. Letters from Genoa fay, that the communication is entirely cutoffbetween that State and Lombardy, and that 13 or 14 Couriers from Madrid, and feven or eight from France, whofe Difpatches are to the Infant Don Philip and Marfhal Maillebois, remain there, not daring to rifque their Paftage to the Army. The King of Sardinia has 2000 Men at Novi, who continue to exact large Contributions from the Subjects of the Republick, efp.cislly the Nobility, under Pain of Military Execution. At the fame Time the Senate is very much a'armed at the Armament in Tufcany, which they imagine may be intended againft Spezzia. Three Englifh Men of War have appeared before the Capital, and the People murmur greatly againft thofe who brought them into their prefent Circumftauces, fome of whom have thought proper to retire. It h reported that the Troop under the Command of the Marfhal Maillebois have b.'ens entirely defeated by the King of Sardi nia. By the Death of the King of that Crown devolves to Don Ferdinand, Prince of Aituriaj. The Royal Family of S P A I N.
