Extract of a Letter from Drefden, June i i, N S. ' According to the bell Information we have been as yet * able to get of the Batt'e of Freyberg, the firft Divifion, * commanded by the Duke of Saxe Weifienfels, b?gan * about Two o'Clock in the Morning, (the 4th Inltant) to ' come down from the Gorges of the Mountain into the ' Plain, where they met, at about 50 Paces Diftance, the * whole Pruflian Army, drawn up in order of Battle, and ' polled advantageoufly, with all its Artillery. The Saxons � made prodigious Effjrts, but ftill were unable to form * themfelves, much lefs to themfelves or break in � upon the Enemy, on Account of the extreme Difadvan-' tage of the Ground they fought upon, being expofed there * on every Sid to the Fire of the Cannon. The Duke of � Saxe WeiiTenfels himfelf charged two or three Times at � the Head of the Auftrian Cavalry ; but fome Inconve-� niencies that hindered this Cavalry from sRingfo well as * was requifite, rendered the Duke's Efforts fruitlefs. Se-� veral Regiments of Auftrian Foot endeavoured, with the * Bayonet fixed to their Pieces, to break the Pruflians ; � but the latter repulfed them, and then the Troops were > � obliged to turn back to the Defiles of the Mountains, j � which they did in pretty good Order, As the whole ' ' Divifion of the Center, which confided of Auftrian Troops � could not get quite out of the Defiles, nor draw up to ' Advantage, they confequemly found themfelves unable to ' fecond the E-fforts of the Red of the Army. This * Action has cod about 3000 Men. In the Cavalry we � have lod General Pohlentz, and the Major Gener-Is * Schlichting and Durfeldr. Lieutenant General Renard. ' received two Mufket-Shots, and Lieutenant General � Birckholtz one. The Colonel, Lieutenant-Celonel, and * Major of the Prince Royal's Regiment of Cuiraffiers, are � killed. We are very uneafy about the Prince of Saxe-' Gotha and the Prince of Saxe-Cobourg, having had no * Tydings cf them fince the Battle. The Lofs of the ' Auftrians, which is not fo confiderable as ours, may a- * mount to 2000 Men, befides the Prifoners. They mifs * feveral General?, among whom they reckon Baron Ber- * lichingen, Count Leopold Daun, the Count de St. Ig- * non, and M. de Hohenembs, which four were Men of ' great Experience and Talents. We were obliged to aban-' don fome Colours, and 20 or 30 Pieces of Cannon. But * whatever may have been thelffueof that Battle, we only * look upon it as the Prelude to another Action, fince the ' Duke of Saxe-Weiffenfels pofitively tells the King, that * he depends upon having his Revenge; which we flitter * ourfelves he may take, confiderihg how many Troops we ' have ftill left; for the Army of Saxons'that enter'd Silefia ' with Prince Charles, confided of 30,545 Men, viz. c 20,434 Foot, and 10,111 Horfe, befides 38 Troops of * Tartars or Uhlans. According to Advices from Nice of the 29th of May, N.S. Marfhal Maillebois arrived there the 26th, and the next Day hia Excellency, with feveral French General Officers, affided at the Grand Council of War called by the Infant Don Philip, in which the Operations of the Campaign were fettled ; and purfuant to the Refolutions taken then, eight Squadrons began their March the fame Day, and were followed the 28th by the like Number of Squadrons and feveral Batailions : The Red of the Army was to take the fame Route the 30th and -3id of May. The Rendezvous was fixed in the Neighbourhood of Genoa, and the Infant D^on.Philip was to leave Nice the id of" June. Marfhal Maillebois is gone back to his Quarters on the Frontiers of Provence, to put his Army in Motion, feveral Batailions of which are already arrived in the County cf Nice*. They write from Leghorn,that the Englifh Squadron that cruizes along the Coaft of Genoa, has blocked up the three French Men of War under the Command of M; de Sage in the'Port Villa-franca ;*and that two Englifh Bilan-ders and two Bomb Ketches are failed from Leghorn to bombard the faid three French Men of War. Ext rail of a Letter from Genoa, June 1, N.S. ' The Reports that prevailed both at Home and Abroad, ' that the Republick would furnifh the Crown of Spain with ' 12000 Auxiliary Troops, are ill grounded : On the cpn-' trary, it appears, from all the Difpofiiions making by ' the Senate, that the Republick is to obferve the mod ex-' aft Neutrality. If our Troops have been augmented^ it ' is done only by Way of Precaution, led the Foreign Ar-' mies that draw near our Frontiers on every Side, fhduld * feize upon our ltrong Towns, the Garrifons of which we ' have reinforced, and very lately fent a Company of ' Soldiers to the Fortrefs of St. Mary, upon Advice that ' fome of the Queen of Hungary's Troops remain in the ' Neighbourhood of Sarzana aud Spezzia. The Infant ' Don Philip's Army has, we are allured, actually entered * the Territory of this Republick, taking its Route to-' wards this City along the Sea Coad. Lerters from Nice ' and Villa-franca fay, that Ships dill arrive there now and ' then, laden with Provifions and Warlike Stores, tho'fe-' veral Englifh Men of War hover about thefe Places ' The lad Advices we had concerning Admiral Rowley's ' Fleet fay, that it was dill cruizing off Carrjiagena, ' where it has taken feveral Prizes. According to Advices from Francfort, of the 1 3th, N.S. the French that were poded in divers Places on the Mayn, have all re-affembled under the Prince of Coflti, and encamp betweenAfchaffenbourg,Bobenhaufen, and Diepsurg. The Veldt Marfhal Count Traun |has taken Pod with his Army between Wertheim and Miltenbourg, on the left Side of the Mayn, where he occupies a very advantageous Camp, and may eafily receive his Provifions and Fomge from Franconia by that River. General Baronia's HufLrs make Incurfions even in the Neighbourhood of Francfort; and General Trips's Huffars range about as far as Die-pourg, Darmdadt, and towards the Rhine ; fo that the French cannot travel fafely on either fide of the Mayn. Our Advices from Flanders inform us, that the Citadel of Tournay ftill holds out, tho' the French daily gain fome Ground upon the Befieged, but not fo fait'as was apprehended. As for the Army of the Allies, it will fpeedily quit the Camp of Leflines, if ore may form a Judgment from the Difpofitions making therebut they feem not pofitive, this Pod, that the Army will march to the Relitf of the Citadel. The 8000 Audrians that are to be drawn from the Dutchy of Luxembourg, and other Garrifons in the Audrian Netherlands, were not yet arrived in the Army when thefe Advices came away, which was the 14th Ind. N.S. nor couid they all arrive within a Week yet, at the fooned. From tbi Saxon Head Quarters at S~ latin, June 8, N.S. The Day before Yederday, at Nine o'Clock in the Morning, we had Advice, that the Pruflian Army was in full March to our Camp by Landfhut, and that GeneisI Nadadi was forced to retreat. As on Account of the confiderable Lofs of Artillery, Generals, and Upper Officers, it was not advifeable to rifque and expofe ourfelves to the dubious Event of another Engagement; and as we did not at firft intend to keep the Camp by Landfhut, the farther Retreat to Bohemia was refolved upon. The Army difpo-fed accordingly, and the March begun in good Orctr. This was facilitated by the Precautions already taken of fending the Baggage before by Break of Day, and the Troops were the lefs interrupted in their March. General Nadadi, with the Huffars and five Pulcks of Uhhnc, formed the Rear Guard cf the Combined Army, and, not to divide it, it was thought proper for the Whole to march by Schimberg. Our Rear Guard fkirmifhed for an Hour behind Landfhut with the PrufEan Avant Guard, which had fome Pieces of Cannon ; fometimes ose Side, feme-times the other had the Advantage, as it ufually happrns in fuch Cafes. The Day before Yederday we carae before into, the Camp by JohnfdorfF, and Yederday into this, and we were not difturbed in our March Yederday. To give the Troops Time to fefrefh themfelves after the two fatigue-ing Marches over the Mountains, we halt To-day, but in-te�d to proceed To-morrow to the Neighbourhood of Jaro-mitx aud Konigfhoft". Prince Charles intends to h;;ve his Head Quarters in  the former Place, and the Duke in the latter, fo that the Right Wing will be at Jaromitz, and the Left at. Konigfhoff. As far as we can learn, the whole Pruflian Army is march'd to Landfhut, and we have alfo Reports that it was gone to Hirfchberg. Wherefore to prevent the Pruflian Army from penetrating into Bohemia by Trautenau, and cutting us from the Communication with Saxony, that Pafs is occupied by an Auftrian Regiment of Dragoons. Orders are alio given for cutting down the Trees, and a fufikient Number of Men will be poded there. Mean Time a Detachment of Uhlans is commanded to* Trautenau, to obferve and give Informations of the Motions of the Pruflians. bonier, Jane 10.
