Wind N.E. The Bolton, Dewers, from Philadelphia, is arrived at Dublin. The North Carolina, Nottingham, from Nevis, at Le-verpool. LONDON. Yefterday arrived two Mails from Flanders. ExtraS of a Letter from Amjlerdam, June 22, N.S. 1 Our Letters from Vienna or the 9th Inftant, fay, that � the unexpected News of the Lofs of the Battle of Fried-* berg, caufed fo much the greater Confternation in that � City, as they depended on receiving the News of a com-� pleat Viftory, aBd the more fo, becaufe it had been all ' along given out, dm the Queen's Army, joined with the Saxons, was much fuperior to the Pruffian Army ; thar, moreover, the latter was in bad Order, confiding chiefly of Men forced into the Service, who only waited for an Opportunity to defert : Nay, it was pofitively allured that the King of Pruffia would retire at the Approach of the Combined Army, and that all Silefia would be evacuated in a little Time. The Miniftry had Recourfe immediately to the propereft Remedies: Couriers were dif-patched to divers Parts, fome to haften the March of the Troops coming from Hungary, and to make new Levies in that Kingdom : Others carried Orders for the Troops difperfed in different Places, to march with all fpeed for Bohemia to join Prince Charles. A Courier was alfo dif-patched to the Veldt Marfhal Traun ; from whence fome would infer that Orders have been fent to that General to march likewife for Bohemia, or at leall, to fend thither a large Detachment of'his Army. As for the Lofs fuftained by the Auftrians at the Battle of Fried-berg, thefe Letters from Vienna make it greater than even the Prufiians themfelves have done ; but it is to be fupp#ed that they writ this in their firll Fright. ' Hofwever it be, the Confluences of this Battle will foon lie manifefled, and we expect to hear by the next Port ftom Germany, that Part ef the King of Pruffia's Army htrs enter'd Bohemia, in order to purfue the Auf-trians, and take Advantage of the Difoider which the Troops afe (till in ; and that another Part of his Army will enter Lufatia, while the Troops encamped in the Ntighboushood of Magdebourg make an lnvafion into * Mifnia. The latter, 'tis faid, are to be commanded by f the Veldt-Marfhal Count Schmettau, who after being ' feemingly in Difgrace, has appeared again at Court. ' We are fenfible, that the King of Pruffia's Defign is to ' ravage the Saxon Territories, in order to oblige the King ' of Poland to abandon the Queen of Hungary. But we � flatter ourfelves, that his Polifh Majefty will keep fteady * to his Alliance, in Hope of fome fortunate Turn of Af- * fairs. ' A private Letter from Drefden fays, that whatever ' good Face they put upon the Matter at Court, it is never-' thelefs certain that the Lofs of the Battle in Silefia puts ' the Miniftry to their Trumps. This Battle has coft � Saxony the greateft Part of her Generals and her Field-' Artillery, and 4 or 5000 Men at leaft. The Count de ' Noftitz, who brought the News of it to Court, was or-' dered by the Duke of Saxe-Weiffenfels nod to tell all his ' Tale at once, that he might not alarm the Court too ' much : And it was not known till the nth, that feven ' Saxon Generals were as good as loft, viz. Pohlentz, Dur-' feld, Boftenboftel, Canitz, Niefementel, Renard, and * Schlichting ; the latter is made Prifoner ; the other fix ' were dangeroufly wounded, and fome of them are already 1 dead. This fame Letters add, that the Saxons have loft * near 100 Officers j and, which is furprizing, that the * Generals of the Combined Army were but very ill in-' formed of their Enemies Strength and Defigns, and 'al-' together as over-fighted in chufing their Ground ; for it ' is faid, that the Aullrians were fo pent up, that they ' could not ufe their Men.' They write from Hamburgh of the 18th Inftant, N.S. that they have Advice from good Hands, that the Pruffian Troops, who lay in the Neighbourhood of Magdebourg, have actually decamped, in order to invade the Electorate of Saxony ; and that all the Inhabitants are in the utmoft Confternation, notwithftanding the Court has been for fome Time part, providing againft this lnvafion. Ex trail of a Letter fom Stockholm, June 11, N.S. ' The King has received a Courier from Caffel, dif-' patched by Prince William of Heffe, about the Heffian � Troops that ferved in Bavaria. This Courier has been * fent back with his Majefty's Anfwerto Prince William's ' Difpatches. The Publick know nothing yet of the Con-' tents of this Anfwer ; but we are afiured, that the King ' leaves Prince William at full Liberty to acl: in the pre- * fent Conjuncture of Affairs.  M. Antivari, charged-with the Queen of Hungary's ' Affairs in this Kingdom, has communicated to the Court * fome Difpatches he received from Vienna, containing the * Reafons why her Hungarian Majefty thinks the Heffian ' Troops that were employed in Bavaria, fhould not yet be � allowed to return Home. It is faid the Court has made ' no Anfwer to this Minifter, but directed him to fend ' thofe Reafons to Prince William of Heffe. ' A Courier is arrived here from Peterfburgh, with Dif- * patches from Baron Cedercreutz, the King's Ambaffador ( to the Emprefs of Ruffia, importing, that the Conditions ' of the private Treaty of Alliance, which his Excellency * was negotiating between this Crown and tr>at Empire are 1 quite fettled, and that he reckoned to fign the Treaty ' with the Ruffian Miniftry towards the End of this ' Month at fartheft. ' The King has refolved to go over to his German Do-' minions this Summer, in order to fettle fome important * Affairs which require his Prefence in that Country. The � Prince Royal is to be left Regent of the Kingdom in hi� * Majefty's Abfence. Extracl of a Letter from Mahotte, May 20. .
