Our Troops were fo well pofted, and covered by an Eminence, that they could not be feen by the Enemy, who feeing only a fmall Body of 80 Hufiars, detach'd 600 Uhlans and Gendarmes to bring them off. But the Foot, ifTuing out of their Ambufcade, charged them behind ; fo that the Uhlans, after they had defended themfelves bravely fome Time, feeing the Party too fuperior, laid down their Arms, as if they would fax-render. The Reft of the French Troops arriving juft at this Time, and the Aition being renewed* the Uhlans re-fumed their Arms, and fell upon our People, who did not expect them, killing and wounding about 50 Men. They were made to pay dear for this Perfidy ; for our Troops, making Face againft them, fell on them) with fuch terrible Slaughter, that of 600 Men, of which they at firft confifted, only 6 were left alive. The Soldiers took on this Occasion a great many Horfes, a Coach and Six, fome Waggons, and above 200 Men.

LONDON. Among the Articles upon which the Senate of Genoa fubmitted, one is, that the Port of the Capital fhall be open to the Englilh Men of War, and all other Veffels of the. Powers in Alliance with her Imperial Majefty. The GenocfeTeemed at firft furprited at the Articles demanded by Count Brown, alledgjwg that they were contrary to the Law* of the Republick r But that General let them foon knew, That he, who had it in his Power xo"pvt them Laws, had nothing to doVith what they had enacted before amofig themfelves.

There are Letters from the French Army before the Caftle of Namur, dated the 27th of September, which mention the Springing of a Magazine by one of their Bombs, by which means 360 Men was blown up, and a great Fife was occafioned.
