The Prince of Litchtenfiein's Health continues in a very bad State; His Highnefs has been fotne Time at Colerno ; but the new Pofition of the Imperial Army has caufed him to change his Quarters, tho' General Nadafti has taken Poft with 10,'coo Men, and fome heavy Artillery on this Side of Placentia. This Detachment is well intrenched, and feems intended to (top the firft Efforts of the Spaniards and French, m cafe they fhould attempt to take Advantage of the Motions of the Imperialills and Piedmonteze, and retire into the Eccle-fialtic State by the Way of Tufcany. And, in order like-wife to cut off their Retreat by Tortoria and the State of Genoa, it is faid, that General Leutrum will remain at Stradella with another Corps of 10,000,' while the King of Sardinia, and the Left Wing of the Imperialills pals the Po at Parpanefe, and the Right Wing of the Imperial's at Spinadefco. By this Means they hope to put the Enemy between two Fires, and will endeavour, if pofljble, to cut off their Retreat to Placentia, and their Communication with that Citv. As the Cannon there would not permit the bringing tne Batteries near enough to ruin the Enemy's Bridge; upon the Po, we are affured, that the King of Sardinia' has caufed a good many Boats to be filled U'ith combuftibl'e Matterr whicn will be let on Fire; and fent down the River, in order to produce the fime Effect. At the fame Time, there ere fome Advices which fay; that the King of Sardinia will continue the Siege of Pla-c=ritia ; that his Majefty's general Quarters will be at Pel-legrina ; and that great Preparations aie making for a Deduce in that Cite Milan, July 21. Since a Piedmonteze Detachment has taken Poft at Ghinola upon the Lambro, where it is entrenching, the French have taken up their Bridges, and are retired to Hofpitalletto. The Advance Pofts of the Spaniards are turning back to Codogno, and all their Army is to march to Guardamiglia, upon Advice, that Gen. Brown will advance with a large Detachment. A great many People die daily at Placentia of an epidemic Dittemper. Crerr.a, July 22. French and Spanifh Officers arrive here daily from the Milahefe, who reporr, that 8000 Spaniards and 20,000 French are arrived at Genoa, in their Way toTbrtona; fo that it was. expecled the Imperial and Piedmonteze Armies would foort be between two Fires In the mean Time, the faid Armies are faffing the Po, in order to attack the French and Spaniards in the Milanefe. Vienna, July 23. 'Tis faid, that next Month tie Imperial Court will take a Tour to Hollitfch, and that the King of Pruffia, who is actually fet out for Sikfia in order to review his Troops, will give theta an Interview at that Tbwn. A great deal is expecVd v at this Meeting, for wh(ch the Preparations are reported W be already making. We feem very quiet with regard to the Motion of the Ruffian Troops, notwithftandlng the Reports that have been fpread to interrupt the good Underftanding between the two Courts. General Bernes waits only-for his laft Inftra&ions to fet out out on his Embaify to his Pruffian Majefty. Bruffels\ Aug. 1 Every Thing has been in Motion for fome Time paft in, the Armics> who are \n fuch a Situation that the News of a bloody Battle is every Moment expected. M. Saxe having learned, that the Allies; who are faid to be near 90,000, not including a Body of 8000, left between Tongres and Maeftricht to cover their Convoys; were advanced from Warem. to Hannuye and Avefnes, in order to pafs the Mehaigne at the laft of the Placesj and continue their March to Namur ; that General, who had been rejoined by the Royal Cavalry, and the Detachment under Count Clerment and M. Lowendahl, fet out from Wavres, where his. Army was affembled, talcing the Road of Gemblours and Fleuny. He arrived there Yeflerday, and went to encamp at Sombreuf, from whence he was this Day to gain the Camp of Mazy upon the Orneau, which is Mid-way between Namur and Charleroi, with a Refaction to wait there fpr Prince Charles. It is thought, that the Marfhal's Army, being reinforced by 20 Battalions and 15 Squadrons from the Prsace of Conti, and in general by all the Troops that could be drawn out of the Garrifon a-roundy is at prefeht above 100,000 ftrong. The heavy Equipages arrived here Yefterday from Louvain, and are to remain till farther Orders. According to our Advices from Charleroi, the Trenches were opened within 200 Toifes of the Pallifades before the Gate of BrufTels : But the Befiegers had 300 Men ki^ed and wounded on that Ocean on. Hague, Aug. 4. We hear; that the Allied Army, which arrived the 29th paft at Warem, that it marched on the 30th and 31ft to within 4 Leagues of Namur, having the Right at Bref, and the Left at Wafeigne, beyond the Mehaigne. It was to remain in this Camp the 1 it Inftanr, and then to continue its March, as was thought, towards Gem-blours. M. Saxe, whofe Army corrfiils of 1 ib.coo Men, feems to have no other Defign but to cover the Frontiers of the French Low-Countries on the Side of Maubege, Conde, Quefnoy and Valenciennes, having fent into the firft of theie Places; the greateft Part of his heavy Baggage. Deputies from Namur came on the 30th paft to Prince Charles's General Quarters; to compliment his Royal Highnefs upon his Arrival ; and, we hear, that feveral Regiments of the Garrifon of that City have Orders to hojd themfelvcs rea^y to join the Army. Ail the Letters from Paris, even thofe of thelateftand beft Authority, tho' they mention M. Noailles's approaching Departure for Turin, are quite filent as to the pretended doable Alliance faid to be ordered to be negociated upon the Death of the Dauphinefs; fo that thole who published this Chimera, either had their own Reafgju for it, or had been firft deceived themielves. LONDON. Some Letters mention the King of France's being daily expected in his Army ; and otheTs, the new King of Spain's writing to the E'mprek by the Title of Sateen of Hungaiy. There are Letters, which mention the Surrender of Charleroi on the fame Conditions as Mons ; and that there had been a fhaTp Rencounter between the Allies and the French, to the Difadvantage of the latter, but this wants Confirmation. By Advices from Gap in Dauphiny, we hear, that a Camp is forming there by the daily Arrival of Men from Franche Conpteand the Lyonnois, and that an Irruption, by Way of Diverfion,- will be made into the King of Sardinia's.Territories with between 30 and 40,000 Men.
