Such French Officers as are ftill in this City, fhew � Letters, which they fay they received Yefterday from * Count Segur'j Army in Swabia, now commanded by the * Prince of Conti, importing, that the Army is actually ' encr*afed to 40,000 effective Men, and that this Prince � was going to begin his March in order to oppofe the Paf-� fage of the Veldt-Marffcal Count Traun. The Auftrians � don't feern to trouble their Heads about their Enemy's � Superiority in Point of Numbers: They defpife them, � and think nothing will be'able to withftand the Bravery * of their Pandours, Croats*, ^c.*backed by good Regular * Troops. * The Army which the Auftrians are to have in Bohe- * mia, willbeatleaft 1 20,000 ftrong, including the Saxons � and the Infufgents of Hungary. . The Prufiian Army is � not nearfo ftrong, and this is what^-iyes Rife to the Re-� pons that his Pruffian Majefty will liften to an Accom-� modatioh, provided the Conditions of it be any thing 10-� lerable. A little Time will fliew us how the Matter � ftands between them: In the mean while the Auftrian * Troops canton, and will not begin to encamp till the 4th * of this Month. ' They write from Munich, that they go on fuccefsfully � with the new Levies for compleating the Bavarian * Troops, and that they talk of 'forming a Camp on the � Frdntiers of that Electorate towards Swabia. They add, * that the Miniiters of France, Spain, and the Elettor- * Palatine have begun to confer again with the Bavarian � Miniftry. ExiraS of a Letter from Amjlerdam, June 8, N.S. 'Allthat we know concerning the Situation of Affairs * at Tournay, is, that the French batter the Citadel with ' extraordinary Fury, in order to oblige the Garrifon to * furrender quickly, by the Confufion which fo great a * Quantity of'Bombs and Red-hot Balls, as they throw into * the' Place, cannot fail to make in fo numerous a Gar-' rifon. As for our Army, we cannot yet fay whether it * will attempt to relieve the Citadel. It is given out here, * that the Generals have refolved to march to its Relief; * but fuch as pretend to know more of the Matter doubt it, * feeing our Army has not yet received all its Reinforce- * ments, 'befides that they will meet with more Difficulties 4 now than they did in the late Battle. It is at Ieaft cer-� tain, that the State has fent no pofitive Orders to attack * the French Army again, but leaves it to the Difcretionof � the Generals of the Allies. ' Out Advices from the French Camp fay, that a new � Reinforcement of 1 !j,ooo Men is arrived there ; that the � King applies himfelf very diligently to Military Affairs, * vifits his Troops very frequently himfelf, makes them * perform their Exercife before him, and is very curious in * this Particular.' Tkt CASE of Brigadier-General Incoldsby, in Relation to bis CanduS in the late AS (on at Fontenoy. THE Brigadier reprefents, that on the Day of Battle, the 30th of April, O.S. his Royal Highnefs fent for him early In the Morning, and told him he was to attack fix Pieces of the Enemy'* Cannon, fitnated in the Wood, and that Capt. Forbes, Aid-de-Gamp to Lieutenant-Gene-ral Campbell, would fhewhim the Place, who carried him to the Orchard where the Highlanders were polled, and Ibew'd him the Wood } fome of the Officers of the Highlanders informed him, that the Enemy had Cannon at the Point of it. On the Brigadier's Return, he acquainted the Duke, he had been fhewn the Place, not thinking it was poffible, /or the Perfo'n that was fent on Purpoie, to miitakc his Royal Highnefi's Intentions. The Brigadier alfo told his Major of Brigade what was to be done. - > The Duke further order'd the Brigadier, if he took the Cannon, to turn them upon the Enemy ; if he could not turn them, to nail them; for which Purpofe, fome Gunners were order'd, and four Battalions, viz. Duroure's, Pulteney's, Lord Semple's, and a Hanoverian Regiment; which latter he was to take off from a Poll that lay at fome Diftance from the Road, and oblig'd the Brigadier to halt till that Regiment joih'd hirri. In Obedience to the above Orders, the Brigadier marched beyond the Village into a hollow Way, where he halted, within a hundred Yards of the Wood, in order to reconnoitre ; and' from the Banks of which he obferved, that the Enemy had a ftrong Detachment in the Wood, and at at that juncture were marching fevera! Parties towards it J particularly one which lay down flat in the Corn, about forty Yards from the Flank of the Wood, and others which marched and joined fome Squadrons on the Hill, dear it. The Brigadier finding the Enemy thus advantagioufly fuuated, fent Major Bernard to the Duke, to acquaint his Royal Highnefs, that he thought fome Pieces of Cannon would abfolutely be oeceflary to flank the Enemy, whilft he march'd to the Attack, which the Duke readily com, ply'd with, and immediately ordered three Six-Pounders. Soon after the Brigadier fent Capt. Crawford of Major-General Pulteney's Regiment, to acquaint the Duke with what he had obferv'd, during which Time the Brigadier call'd the Gomnwndmg-Officers together, acquainted them what he was to do, and confulted with them the propereft way to attack ; it was refolved to draw up npon the Right of the hollow Way, where there appear'd no Difficulty to hinder our March, and likewife having it in our Power to flank the Enemy as we marched. When the Brigadier was putting this Difpofition in Execution, Capt. Crawford return'd, and immediately after the Duke came up. The Brigadier then acquainted his Royal Highnefs with the Obfervations he had made, the Cannon being then arrived, and on the left of the hollow Way. His Royal Highnefs then order'd the Brigadier to form on the left of the hollow Way, the Cannon to advance and fire, and the Battalions to march and fupport them. And further ordered the Brigadier to keep in a dirett Line with that Part of the Army, that was on the Left, which Orders were immediately executed. The Brigadier apprehends a? his Royal Highnefs altered his Difpofition, and gave him frefh Orders, whi�h Orders were punctually obeyed, that hecannot be liable to a Cen-fure for Difobedience of Orders. His Royal Highnefs foon arter retnrn'd, and ordered Lord Semple's Regiment to the Attack of the Village, which was the whole Day afterwards feparated from the Brigadier's Comtrrand. Whilft the Brigadier was marching at the Head of Duroure's Regiment, in Purfuance to the Duke's laft Orders, he received a MefTage from General Ligonier, by his Aide de Campe Capt. Amhurft; enquiring the Reafon why he had not attack'd according to the Orders given early in the Morning ; the Brigadier anfwer'd, that his Royal Highnefs had fince ordered him to march jnd keep in a Line with the Left of the Army. Some Time after, the Brigadier ftill marching at the Head of Duroure's Regiment, Capt. Napier acquainted him, that Major-General Zaflrow was to command that Part of the Line, bat the Brigadier never received any Orders from him, neither did he fee him. The Brigadier continued at the Head of Duroure's Regiment, within a hundred and fifty Paces of a: Redoubt, from which he was expofed to a continual Fire, from the Beginning of the A&ion, which the Lofs of that Regiment will make appear, and in the Attack the Brigadier had the Misfortune to receive a Wound, which oblig'd him to be carried off.
