D'Ef-trees, who was the Day before Yefterday at Pfcrentals, with a Body of 25,000 Men, has given us Notice, to take Care that a large Quantity of Forage be held in' Readinefs in the Country belonging to this Bifhoprick.-' Bruffels, May 19, N.S. Letters from Mechlin' mention, that a Corps of the French King's Army, which had been attempting the Paflage of the Neethe, had been repulfed with great Lofs, but that the Troops ttfcder the Command of M.D'Eftrees, cooking of 25,006 Men, having join'd another Body whrcti had found Means to pafs that River, had,made themfelyes Matters of Lier, thereupon the Allies had retired, under t.he Cannon of Antwerp, and would purfue their March, as it was imagined, to Breda. ; All the great Artillery, with the warlike Stores, which were fome Time ago embarked upon {his River, went off this Day about Noon, and are to be employed in the Siege of Antwerp. Orders have, Wen /ent tfchajfVn the Train of Artillery, which is preparing at Met?, for the Prince of Conti's Army. The Troops under his Command are to be divided into three Bodies, one ef which is to encamp jn Lorrain, the focond near Sedan upon the Meufe, 'acd the laft upon the Mofelle. Each Corps is jo confiflof 22 Battalions and 40 Squadrons. Ali the- King's Equipages are fetting out for Mechlin. We have Advice from Lom-bardy, that upon the 2d the Garrifon of Valentia, con-lifting of 14,000 Spaniards, French, Neapolitans and Ge-noefe, had capitulated upon the following Conditions ; To deliver up one of the Gates to Baron Leutrum upon -the 3d. To march put thro' the Breach with all the Honours of War, as Drums beating, Colours flying, &c. "but all (excepting the Officers who were allowed to keep their Swords) to lay down their Arms in the Ditch of -the. Town. The whole to return to their refpective Countries, the  French to France, the Spaniards to-Spaia, Sec. and not to fcrve for the Spacpof a.Year, either ^iredtly or indireftly againft the King of Sardinia, the Emprefs, nor any of their Allies. Thefame Letters add, that Baron Leutrdra had puttvyco .j^ttalvojjspf M^itianito the Town, jft^if pj$> fr> ilofjg ^he paufey. A,n:Q/donnance has fceen lately ppblifhed .% ,theFrench,iting, .requiring all �the Lords of the Country, to epmeand acknowledge him as their Sovereign, and the Duke of Arembergh is at the Head of the Lift". ' We have Adv,ice from Mans, that on Friday laft there happened a Fire in the Magazine.of Bread in that Town, which deftcoyed a gpeat.Quantity of Corn. Cardinal Bofib, Archbifhop of Mechlin, took the Oaths* of Allegiance to the French King, upon the 15th Inftanr, in the Cathedral there. */ Hague, May 24, N.S. M.Bathiani retreated from Sun-dert to Ypelaar near Breda, and has fince made another Motion behind the laft mentioned Place, where he has polled the Army almoft in the Old Lines thrown up by Prince Maurice during the Siege, of Breda by Spinola, in the Year 1624. The Pelition of our Army> by the frefheft Letters, was, with its Right at Ter Heyde, having the Marck and Breda to cover it, and its Left ftretchirig towards the Dungen, and the Inundation of Gertruyden-burgh, with that Fortrefs a little behind it, and Heufden and even Bolduc, at no confiderable Diftance upon its Flank; whilft its Back is covered by Biesboch, which, at the fame Time, fecures its Communication with thefe Provinces, and even with the Sea. It is heped, the Marlhal may^ be able to maintain this advantageous Poft, until the Arrival of his Reinforcements enable him to face the Enemy ; who, in the mean Time, are left Mailers of all the open Country between the Meufe and the Schelde. It was not known at the Army, when the laft Letters came away, whether the French had paffed Antwerp, or haden-ter'd into it. But it is concluded, that they had not begun to batter the Cittadel on the 22d Inftanr, as Letters from Lillo of that Date, make no mention of any Cannonading being heard. The fmall Garrifon, and the Ordnance that were in Fort Marguerite, has been withdrawn, and brought off down the Scheld by one of the Dutch Guard-fhips. Prince Waldeck has thrown two Battalions into Bergen-pp-Zoom. The Inundations at Lillo, Ber^en-op-Zoom. and Bolduc are already formed, a,nd one eventually-ordered at Heufden, if judged neceffary by the General. Marquis St. Giles, the Spanifh Minifter is preparing to take Leave of this Refidence within 10 or 15 Days, being nominated to fome High Poft in their Catholic Majefty's Houfhold. We hear from Drefden, that the Duke of Saxe-Weiffenfelds died, on the. 16 th Inftant, of a violent Fever, after a few Days Illnefs, Having left no Iflue, his Highnefs's Eftates fall into the ^Ele&oral Branch of that Family. Rotterdam, May 24. Our Letters from Antwerp of laft Night fay," that the French had not Begun to fire upon the Cittadel; but that it was thought their Batteries would be ready the next Morning. We have Advice from Rqchelle of the 14th, that the Brell Squadron arrived that Day in Sight of that Port, in order to join the Squadron of Rochfort, and tp fail together upon fome Expedition. Extra3 of a Letter from an Aufifian Officer, dated timo Miles frots Fiorenzuola tbe $th of May, N. S. ' Upon the 3d Inftant in the' -EY-ening, the Auftrians having rrceived Advice that the Spaniards were retiring, Orders were given for the Huffars and Warafdins to pais the Taro near Foraovo, under the Command of General Nadafti, at Eight o'CIock the fame Night. Thefe Orders were executed with the greateft Difpatch and Refolution, and they marched through Defiles, "and over the Hills in order to get into the great Road at St. Domino. Having paffed this laft Place, they halted at a Place about four] Miles from Fiorenzuola, and the Spaniards alfo dui the fame at a Plage oppofite to us. Count George Schulemberg who had obtain'cf the Regiment late'Meritzel's, with 20,0 of his Men, was detached towards the Left, and marched through Valleys, Woods, and oyer Hills, in order to get behind the Town of Fiorenzuola, by which he would haVe the Start of the Spaniards. In this he fucceeded,' and at Six at Night arrived in the great Road of Placentia. After halting an Hour, we had the good Fortune to fur-prize the greateft Part of the Baggage belonging to the Duke of Modena, and took feveral Officers and private Mien Prifoners, befides a great many Mules and led Horfes. After this Expedition, Count Schulemberg returned to join M. Nadafti, who was purfuing the Enemy's Rear Guard, with a continual Fire on both Sides, in the great Road of Placentia, and was followed by a large Body of Huffars and Warafdins, and two Pieces of fmall Cannon. The Roads being very bad, it was a long while before we could make the Jun&km; however, at laft it was effe&ed without any Lofs on oar Part, arid with a confiderable Booty. iTh.e Dqke of Modena has juft fent a.Trumpet with a Letter, defiring fome particular Things from amongft his. Baggage which feli into our Hands, and promifing to pay the Value of them. T!he Prince of Lichtenftein, with the Army, is to b� this'Eyening at BorgoSt. Donino. P/urma, May 6, .}i.S. The Spaniards finding tn?t the Auftrian Army was preparing to pafs the Taro, and probably being ihformdl of the Arrival of pur Heavy Artillery and Pontoons to the Banks of the fame River, refol-yed to decamp on -Tuefday Night the 3d Inftant, and marched to Fiorenzuola the 4th. The fame Day our People laid their Bridges, and the- whole Army paffed over that Night in Purfuit of trig Enemy, who Ye'fterdy had removed to live Banks of the Nura,' and began to fortify themfelves there, making a Shew as if they meant to keep their Ground: However it is thought probable they will go on farther. To-Day our Army is to advance to Fiorenzuola. At prefent the Magazines and Pontoons of this City are carrying towards the Army. The Enemy has blown up all the Bridges upon the Strada Maeftra, having' before mined theia. Before their Departure they had fent Detachments to reinforce their Pofts upon the Mountain of Bardi and Campiano, pretending as if they would make a-Stand there.- We fhalk fee now whether Caftellar too-will pafs by the Way of Cento Croci, to keep us alert in the open Country, or will go round about by the Genoefe State to join Count Gages. The Surrender of Valentia was probably what determin'd Count Gages to haften his Retreat for Fear of being put between two Fires, having the Piemontiefe on one Side of him, and the Auftrians on the other. Whitebait, May 15. By Letters from his Royal High-nefs the Duke of Cumberland, dated atlnvemefs the 8th Inftant, we are informed, that his Royal Highuefs has order'd the Tranfport Ships to Shields to reviclual, in order for the Embarkings of the Heffians Troopi for Flanders, with all poffible Expedition. Lord Loudoun was to march on the 8th Inftant to Fort Auguftus, with 18 Independent Companies. The Earls of Cromarty and Kilmarnock, and Lord Bal-merlno, were to fet out the next Day for London. His Royal Highnefs propofed in five or fix Days to move forward from Invernefs- toward Fort Auguftus, and to detach Brigadier General Mordaunt with a Body of Troops to Perth> to replace the Heffians. Edinburgh, May 9. By Exprefs from the Sheriff of Argyll, the following Account from Captain Noel of the Greyhound Man of War, to Major GeneralCampbell, has been received here. Greyhound in Air ofs Bay, May 4, 1746. Upon my Arrival here from Ireland, I was informed of Lord Loudoun's being at Sky, whither I went to offer him my Afli-ftance. I attempted getting to the Northward, but Wind and Weather would not permit. Upon the firft Inftant I had an Account of two large Ships being at Loch Noua. The next Morning at Day light. I weighed, i-i Compr.ny with the Baltimore, and kept plying, the Wind being contrary. In the Evening the Terror joined me. Next Morning at Day-break we flood in for the Loch, and a little after Four I crofted pretty clofe to the Commodore, gave him a Broadfide, and then flood to the other. The Sloops followed my Example, and we were engaged till Nine o'CIock, when our Mafts and Rigging were fo much mattered, that the Sloops were riot capable of keeping under Sail, which was the only Means we could propofe to annoy them by, as we were inferior to them in Strength. One of the French Ship's'carried 34 Guns, 24. of which were 9. Pounders. The other carried 32, 22 of , which were 9 Pounders. Wherefore after lying at Anchor fome Time, and having repaired our Damages as welLis, -we could, we made Sail rfrTd' left4t^rr1f'iJana^,are^now refitting. I have fent to the Furnace and Raven to join me as foon as poffible, and hope we ihall ftill have it in our Power to give a better Account of them. 'We all have fuffered pretty much in our Mafts, Vards, Rigging and Sails, and I believe we have not left them in a Condition qf putting to Sea immediately. We .fa'w feveral Chefts and Barrels on Shore, which we judg'd td be Arms and Ammunition, and landed from thefe Ships ; and we alfo perceived many People in Arms' by the Waterside.  -James Stirling of'Keir, and Hugh Stirling ms Son, one of the Pretender's Son's .Life Guards, and James Stirling1 of Craigbarnet, have Beep apprehended' on Board a Dutch Ship employed to carry Tobacco from the Clyde to Holland. Leicefter-Houfe, May 17. His Royal Highnefs the Prince of Wales having been pleafed to a^ppirtt jaroes Creffet, Efq; to be Secretary to her Royal Highnefs the Princefs'of Wales, he had the Honour of kfffing'her\R'oyal Highnefs's Hand on Saturday laft for that Employment.' Franckfort, May 18. * The Depitffcs' of the Circle of the Upper Rhine have not been'afrernbled this Week .pail. The King 0/ Great-Britain as J^ter of Hanover, has fent them Word, that his Co'ntjhg^nt was ready to join thofe of the Circles, defiring'tlje'm to declare when they would caiife' their Troops to rnarch":" His Britannic Majefly has, at die fame Time,, reprefenteid the Danger to which the F^rmjire muftbe expo^dj' if France continues,'in Spite^p/ Treaties of Peace/jmd the Conftitu'tioa of die Empire,.to ereft Forti^ca^p^s' upon the Rhine, over-agai oft Fort Kehl, and of her Places."  According to our Letters from Vienna, the Journey of their Iniperial Majefties intp Moravia will not take Place, ;or, at 'leaft,'not fo foon a# fi^d been thought.
