General Advertiser (Newspaper) - June 23, 1846, London, Middlesex The General Advertifer. Numb. 3637. MONDAY, June .23, 174$. Dealy June 21. EMAIN in the Downs his Ma" jefty's Ship the Fox; with the Dutch Ship for Eaft-India; and ail the Outward. Wind S.W. The Jofeph and Redard, Willis, from Briftol; and Phasnix, Thompfon, from St. Kitts, are arrived at Carolina. The Elizabeth, Hutchins,from Carolina at Providence. The Chriftian, Martin, from Gottenburgh, in the River. The Seaflower, Connell, from Cork to Madeira, is taken and carried into Bayonne. Yefterday arrived the Mail from Holland. From the General Quarters of the King of Sardinia at Sciatezzo, June 17.  Upon our Arrival at Novi on the 1 oth, we learned that the French had abandoned all the Pofts on our Right, but that fome Genoefe Troops ftill maintained themielves in Ovada, a kind of Fortrefs upon the Frontiers of their Republick. They refufed to furrender at the firft Summons, and we were obliged to fhew them fome Cannon; immediately after which, the Garrifon, confiding of 210 Common Men, 10 Officers, and a Lieutenant-Colonel, furrendered themfelves Prifoners of War. ' The King'feeing on the nth, that the French retired in great Halle at the Approach of his Army, and under-ftanding that they even forced Marches to get up to Pla-centia, his Majefty immediately made all the neceffary Difpofitions to follow them as clofely as poffibly. The Army arrived on the 12th at Rivalta, on the 13th at Caftel-Novo, and on the 14th at Voglera, from whence Detachments were fent as far as Stradella, who made fome Prifoners from the Rear-Guard of the Enemy, and brought off fome Baggage. On the 15th the King arrived at Sciatezzo, the Rear of the Enemy continuing that Morning at Caftel-Giovanni.  His Majefty receiving Advice, that the Spaniards had formed a Defign to attack the Auftrian Army, in order to fupport the latter as much as Circumftances of Affairs would permit, he defifled from the Project that had been formed of attacking Serravalle, and ordered back the Brigade that was deugned for that Service. At the fame Time he gave Orders for a Bridge, that was ready formed upon thePd, to be carried down the River, that a Communication might be eftablifhed with Pavia, in Cafe the Enemy fhould repafs that River, and make an Attempt upon that City, their true Defign not being yet known. His Majefty at the fame Time caufed his Avant-Guard, commanded by M. de Montfert, to march to Cartel St. Giovanni, and fent a Detachment as far as the Trebia. ' Such was the Difpofition of the King's Troops, when Yefterday Morning our moft advanced Pofts began to hear a great Firing of Cannon and fmall Arms from about Placentia. His Majefty immediately gave Orders for marching forwards, and the Arfiiy was already in. Motion, when Advice came that the Affair was over. Soon after the King received other Advices ffom Placentia it-felf, informing him that the Spaniards began the Attack about Midnight oh the Side of die Trebia, and afterwards on the Left at St. Lazaro, and the Hill behind it; that the Action had been very brifk,' and very bloody, both Parties having fought with the greateft Refolation ; that at the Houfe of one of the Spanifh Generals a Lofs of about 10,000 Men. was acknowledged, including all. That the City was full of wounded, and that, had it not been for the Protection of the Cannon'upon the Ram-pars, it would have been impoffible'to have efcaped an entire Defeat, there being ftill coming in on the 10th at Noon, a great many Troops in the uttactft Confufion. ' Upon thefe Reports the Army halted, with Orders however to keep in Readinefs to march wherever it may be found neceflary, in order to.favour the Of erations of the Auftrian Army, from which, News was every Moment expected. ' Some Hoots after, the King received direftly from that Army, the Confirmation of the Victory won by the Prince of Lichtenftein, who took Notice, that he had been attacked on the Right and Left with equal Force; that on one Side the Spaniards had gained fome fmall Advantages, which they did not however long enjoy; and that, at laft, the three combined Nations had been well beaten, efpecially the French ; that being forced to abandon the Field of Battle, the Enemy retired into their Camp under Favour of their heavy Artillery. That the lmperiai * Foot and Horfe had both done Wonders ; that the Heat * of the Action lafted above five Hours j that they ' reckoned already 2500 Prifoners, more being expected ' every Moment; that there were among them a good roa-' ny Officers of Diftin&ion, and Abundance of wounded; 4 that the Affair was exceedingly bWody; that it was not ' yet poffible to count the Lofs oh^Wh Sides, but that of c the Enemy was undoubtedly the moft conftderable; that ' the Imperialifts had taken Cannon* Colours and all other ' ufual Trophies of a Victory.  By the Pofition that the Kiag's^rmy will take To-� morrow, along the Tironeand the Narotta, all Com-' munication will be entirely cut off between the Enemy ' and the State of Genoa. From the French Cairip before Mons% "June 21.

The fame Day there was a brifk Skirmifh in the Neighbourhood of Braine-le-Comte, between a Detachment of our Dragoons, and a hundred Auftrian HufTars, fupported by Captain Bethune's Free Company; The Workmen had Yefterday advanced their Zigzags along thelCovert Way, which communicates with the Gate of Havre, as well as 4 Zigzags in the Centre, following the Capital of the Baf-tion Attack, and two more with a Parallel upon the Capital of the Redoubt on the Side of Mont Parifel.
