General Advertiser (Newspaper) - June 26, 1845, London, Middlesex WEDNESDAY, June 26", 1745. Dealy June 24. AME down the Tring Gaily' Dornford, for Oporto ; Prince William, Pick, for Lifcon ; and remain with the Men of War, and Outward-bound. Arrived the Caefar Privateer from a Cruize. Juft came down the Durfley Privateer, Furnell, for a Cruize ; and the Tryton, Keigwin, for Oporto. Wind S.W.byW. " The Efcape, Bearfly, from Oporto, is arrived off Dover. LONDON. �xtrac7 tf a private Letter from Amjlfrdam, June 29, N.S. * We have received a Letter from Ratifbon, dated the � 21 ft lnftant, with the following Particulars relating to the * Situation of Affairs between the Auftrians and Pruflians. " The bad Confequences of the Battle of Friedberg in " Silefia, rhanifeft themfelves more and more every Day, " to the great Difadvantage of the Auftrians and Saxons. " All the Advices received here from the Auftrians, own, " that the Retreat from Reichenau, where the Army re-" affembled after the Battle, to Jaromitz, was road* with " great Precipitation and Confufion, infomuch that they �' were obliged to abandon feveral fmall Magazines, and " that the Pruflians carried off fome Hundreds of Baggage " Waggons : The great Magazine at Trautenau was hap-" pily laved, and the Auftrians had Time enough to with-�" draw fome Troop3 that were in the Conrnty of Glatz. �' The Terror muft certainly have been great in the Com-" bined Army, fince they arrived the 7th lnftant at Land-" Giut, in an advantageous Poft, where they might have " made a Stand againft a much fuperior Army: Never-" thelefs, they retreated from thence in great Hafle at the Approach of the Pruflianr, abandoning in a Manner the " Rear-Guard, which was very roughly handled by their " Enemy. In ftiort, they were but four or rive Days in '< corrvng back to the Place from whence they fet out, " whereas they took up eight and nine Days in perform-" ing th: fame March before. The Pruflians do not much '* exaggerate in faying, that the Lofs of the Auftrians and " Saxons, amounts to 20,oco Men, if they reckon all the �' wounded, together with the Deferters : The latter don't �< fall ftiort of 3000, and the wounded may be reckoned " at 6 or 7000, many of whom do indeed recover. In " fine, it is a molt fatal Blow to the Allies, from which " they will find it a very hard Matter to recover. , � Thus do they write from Rd i bon, and, it feems, not < without Foundation ; fince we hear that the King of � Pruffia is now but a Day's March from the Combined ' Army, and that he will certainly attack them, unlefs they 4 refolve to retreat under the Cannon of Prague. � However, our Letters from Vienna fay, that Affairs ' are nothing like defpera'e ; and that they are yet in a � Condition to cut out a great deal of Work for the King of � Pruffia : Nay, they flatter themfelves that his Pruflian * Majefty will be obliged very foon to march back to Sile-  fia ; becaufe, fay they, the Combined Army is turning ' off to the Right, in order to enter the Upper-Silefia by ' the Frontiers of Moravia, and there join the.Infurgents * of Hungary, Who are very numerous on that Side ; af;er � which they intend to attack the Pruflians with all their  united Forces. But theQueftion is, whether the King of � Pruffia will give them Leifure enough to execute this Pro- * jeft ? For they pofitively write from Berlin, that he is  rcfolved to attack his Enemy again, coft what it will.  Private Advices from Paris fay, that the Court does in-� deed It iII perfift in the Defue to make Peace, the Moment ' fhe fees a Poflib;lity of making one confident with her ' Honour, and the jult Pretenfions of her Allies; but that * the Enterprize formed by the Queen of Hungary and her ' Allies, to place the Grand Duke of Tufcany in the Im-' perial Throne, is quite oppofite to this End : So that  there is no Accommodation to be expecled, fo long as � they pcifift in this Defign.  We are ftill at the Eve of three Battles, viz. one in 1 Bohemia,another on the Mayn, and the^third in Flanders, ' befides what may happen in Italy. Letters from Hanover of the 25th lnftant, N.S. fay, that the Chevalierde Caravalko, Envoy Extraordinary from the King of Portugal, who lately arrived there, fet out again the 20th for Vienna: That his Excellency allures, he goes to that Court with no other View, but to adjuft, by his Portugueze Majefty's Good Offices, fome Differences tint have lately happened between the Queen of Hungary and the Pope. Leffines Camp, June 20, N.S. General Pulteney was detached on the 12th at Night, with a Thoufand Foot, Two Hundred Horfe, and a Hundred Huffars to a Village oiled Ronfen or Renay, within three Leagues of the Enemy's Camp, to bring in a Quantity of dry Forage, which had been left there, wnich he did without Interruption from the French, though they had a general Forage at not above u Mile's Diftance from General Pulteney's Party, at which the King was prefent in Perfon. It is allured that the French, from their Number, might have prevented the Junction ofTraun and Bathiani, by obliging both Armies to take feveral more Marches round about; but fince they did not, it is believed that the Report of their Infantry being in a very bad Condition is true, and that therefore they will not hazard any Thing in that mountainous Country, where only the Foot can be of Ufe. There is Advice, that the Hope, Lamb, from Dantzick, for Dublin ; and Jannet, Dougall, from Bergen for Dantzick, are both taken by a Swedes Veflel, commanded by one Philip Peter Degenaer (a Swede born) who pretends to h^ve a Commiffion from the French King ; and has carried them both to Koningfberg.
