AILED this Morning his Maje-fty's Sloop Faulcon on a Cruize-Remain the Duke and Shore-ham Merr of War, and the Outward-bound Ships ; and the St. George, Chifle, for Gibraltar. Wind S.S.W. Q rave fend, June 20. Pafs'd by the Grand Duke,Willie, from Leghorn. The Elizabeth's Prize, Hemming, from Tortola, is arrived at Leverpool. TheArran, Martin, from Nevis, at ditto. The Philip and Peter, Anter, from Maryland, at Leith. LONDON. Extra8 of a Letter from Drefden, June 15, N.S. � The Court has not yet publifhed a Circumitantial Re-' lation of the Battle of Friedberg in Silefia, and we are * even allured, that none will be given, till the moil exaft ' Informations have been taken of our Lofs in that Affair, * with all the molt minute Particulars relating to it, that the Publick may have a faithful Account of the Matter, without difguifmg the Truth in the leaft, it being his Majefty's Intention not to copy after his Enemies in this Relpeft. ' Tho' it appears by the fudden and abrupt Departure of M. Cagnoni, the Pruffian Minifter, that the King his Mafter intends to be the firft to break the Neutrality that has hitherto fobfiited between the two Courts and their refpeclive Domin/ons, we don't perceive that our Court is in much Pain about it; for we rely on the Juitice of our Caafe, and the good Difpofitions making in this Country to lepel an Jnvafion. So early as the 5th Inlt. Orders were iffued for the Troops canton'd on the Elb, to march out of their Quarters the next Day, and form a Camp within two Leagues of Wittenberg. The Four Troops of Life-Guards have alfo begun their March for the faid Camp. * Upon the Reprefentations of the Palatine and Sta-rolles along the Frontiers of Poland, the Primate of the Kingdom has demanded of his Majfty, that the Subjtdts of the Republick may be permitted, in Confideration of the Scarcity of Provifions* and the Continuance of the War in Silefia, to carry thither Part of the Provifions with which the Kingdom abounds, provided they could be afiured, that fuch Provifions would be paid for in ready Money, and that the Waggons and other Carriages would not be ltopt or detained : To which the King has made Anfwer, that he leaves all the Inhabitants of Poland at full Liberty in this Refpecl j but as,his Majefty can give them no Security in the Cafe, either for their Perfons or Effects, they muft refolve to Hand all Chances themfelves.' ExtraB of a Letter from Prague, June 12, N.S. 4 The fatal News we have received of what palled the 4th Inftant near Schweidnitz and Javer, between the Combined Army and that of Pruflia, has thrown this City into a great Confternation. We don't yet know all the Particulars of this melancholly Affair, the private Letters we have received about it differing considerably in Regard to the Lofs fultained by the Queen's Troops and thofe of Saxony : The Advices that make it lowed, rate it at 6000 Men, killed, wounded, and taken Prisoners, whilit others run up the Account to 12,000; fo that taking it at a Medium, we muft have loft about 9000 M?n, among whom are feveral General1, Colonels, and a great Number of other Officers. We are not better informed of the Enemy's Lofs, which, however, is faid to be very considerable. What comforts us under this Difafter is, that the Army will be reinforced, in about 8 or 1 0 Days, by a Body of 6000 Saxons, who are already in full March to it, fome of the Officers having reach'd this City this Morning, as alfo by 10,000 Hungarians, whofe Van-guard has actually entered Moravia. Thefe are to be followed by 8000 Regular Auftrian Troops, who, we hear, are a&ually on the March. As foon as thefe Succours arrive, our Generals will not hefitare to try their Fortune with the Enemy in a more advantageous Spot than that wherein they were forced to fight in Silefia, efpecially as the Troops, far from being dejected, only wifh for an Opportunity to repair their Difgrace. Jn the mean time, General Nadafti has cut off 2 or 3 Pruffian Batallions, and retaken 8 Pieces of Cannon with a good Number of our Prifoners. ExtraEl of a Letter from Plymouth, June 18.
