London Daily Post And General Advertiser (Newspaper) - May 14, 1743, London, Middlesex SAT V XL DAY, May 14, 1^43. Dw7, Mayxi. REMAIN in the Downs hrt M�jc fly's Bhip the Augafta, and the Ships mentioned in my laft. Wind N.E. Gravefmdt May \ z. Pafc'd by -Delight, Hunters and Britannia, Howatfon, from Rotterdam ; Union, Clincker, from Amfter-dara ; Providence, Cable, from Sweden; and Mary, M�ere from Norway. , The Bonctta, Baddens, from Oporto, is arrived at Wfcite--haveo. L O N D O N. Yefterday arrived the Mail from Holland. Letters from Xifbon of th* 17th of April, N.S.. fay, that the iCing of Portugal's Phyficians having judged it ne-teflary for him to ufe the Baths of Caldas a fecond Time, his Majefty's Departure was fixed for the 10th Inftant. By Advices from. Genoa we hear, that there are 30 Ships of the Line at Anchor off of the Ides of Hieres under Admiral Matthews, and that it feems fome grand Expedition is to be taken in Hand very foon, the Admiral having ordered all the Men of War that cruize about in the Mediterranean to come and join him. From Drefden we ,have Advice, that the Queen of the Two Sicilies was delivered of a Daughter the 29th of laft Month, N.S. His Royal Highnefs the Duke of .Cumberland paffed thro' Utrecht the i8thlnllant,. N.S. in his Way to Hano-rer, where his Majefty arrived the 16th. According to Letters from Stockholm of the t6th of May, N.S. Baron Nolcken, the fecond Plenipotentiary at the Congrefs of Abo, was ftill in that City, and will not return to Finland, until the Court firft fees the Difpatches that are expected every Day from Abo. Count Teflin ftill appears firm in his Resolution to refign his Employments. It is faid his Difguft proceeds from a Pamphlet lately pub-lifhed, in which he and the prefent Minittry are attacked in the ftrongeft Manner. The States have not yet taken any Refolution, concerning the Memorial which Count Teflin delivered to them on this Subject. We are allured, that the King having been fo kind as to exhort the Count to continue in his-Pofts,he made Anfwer, * That in,all Things -* elfc he would glory in obeying his Majefty's Orders, but * that he could not in Honour change his Mind in this Affiur.' ; They .-write from Duffeldorp, that a Camp is marked cut at Daren* in the Country of Juliets, for the Britifti and ffeffian Troops that lately marched from Flanders.) and that they are to affemble there as a Corps of Obfervation, until they receive further Orders concerning their Deftination. Advices from Francfort of the 16th Inftant, N.S. fay, that-ftx Hanoverian Regiments, of Infantry, and four of Cavalry, were actually encamped at Drinekheim, on the Territory of Hanau, within two Leagues of the City : The Camp for the Englim Troops at Hochft was actually marked oot, and they were to march into it that Week: in the mean time, they worked Night and Day upon a Bridge on the Main, in order to fend over Parties to reconnoitre the French, who have entered the Bergftraat. Mar-ihal Noailles has ordered the Head of their Bridge on the Rhine to be fortified, and demanded 50000 Quintals of Hay, and 20000 Meafures of Oats, of the Landgrave of Hefte Darmftadt. From the Head Quarters of the Aufirian Army at Schat-din-gen, tve have the following Account of the [ate Engagement in Bavaria, dated May 1 r, N.S. i.. The 8th InQant Lieutenant General Baron Berenclau, was detached by Prince Charles of Lorrain, with a Body of Horfe and Dragoons, in order to attack the Poft of Trufileren, which was occupied by the French : After having invefted it, he canfed it t� be attacked with fuch Vigour, that CapL Le Croix, who commanded there, was obliged to furrender with Part of his Men. Then General Berenclau, having left 200 Dragoons at Trufileren, marched on to Pfarkirchen beyond the River. Rot, where he found the reft of Capt. La Croix's Company with the two Companies of the Captains Damoulin and Dulimont: Thefe he Ukewife^attacked very brilkly ; they made at firft fome Refinance, but were foon obliged to furrender Prisoners of War. '' �' The 9tb at break of Day, Prince Charles of Lorrain fet forwards with the Body of Horfe and Foot that fed palled the Inn at Oberperg, and marched towards Erblacn and Dobbel, where he found General Minuzzi pofted with a Body of Troops, confifUng of about 10 Batallions and 18 Squadrons. Prince.ChVuies fent a Body of Horfe to take the Enemy in Flank, whilft he attacked them in Front with all his Infantry and the reft of the Cavalry. The Engagement lafted almoft five Hours, with all the Obfti-,nacy ImaginableT The Enemy, who were pofted in a very advantageous Spot of Ground, made a vigorous Refiftance under Favour of fome Field Pieces planted on the Hill of Dobbel: But the Troops that attacked the Enemy in Flank,'having at laft drove them-from that Hill, the Confafion was fo great among them, that not being able to recover from the Diforder, we gained a compleat Viftory. We took Prifoners the Generals Minuzzi, Preyfing and Oabrielt, who were all three wounded.' The Lofs of the Bavarians, is computed at about 2000 Men, both killed and taken Prifoners: The reft of them fled to Braunau, and (hut themfelves up there. : letter from a Per/bn of DiftinSion at the Court of Munich, dated May 12, N.S. * The Pubjjek News becomMjmore ferioos every Day: v'The Accounts received by the laft Poft have given us a � terrible Alarm. . The famous Partisan La Croix was at-' tacked four Days ago at Pfarkirchen by a Body of Au-* ftrian Troops; He had with him no more than 6 or 700 * Men, Being independent Companies in the French Ar- * my. After a vigorous Defence,; being overpowered by * Numbers, he was obliged to furreriuer Prifoner of War, * wiA -all his Men. He had fent for Succours to the * French Troops castonM between the Iffer and the Rot, * but was informed that they were retiring towards the * Iffer, for fear, as 'tis prefumed, the Enemy fhoukl en-' deavour to cut off their Communication on the Side of ' Landau and Deckendorff. The Country being thus left ' open between the Inn and the Iffer, we began to fear, the * Moment we received this News, that it would be at- * tended with bad Confluences to us, and that the Au-. �. ftrians would come back, and make Incurfions in this * Neighbourhood.  Oar Fears appear to have been but too well grounded, * by the News we .received Yefterday of the Defeat of the < Corps, commanded by General Minuzzi $ the Aufirians ' finding that the French Troops had retreated towards the * Jffer, came fuddenly upon this General, who was en-' camped at Erblach, on the Banks of the Inn, with 7000 ' Men: He was brijkly attacked in Front, while theHun-' garians, commanded by General Baroniai, took him in � Flank. " Our General defended himfelf five Hours to-� getherj with all poffible Vigour, until being wounded * and overpower'd, he fell into thcEnerhy's Hands. The * Troops he commanded were partly defeated, difperfed, ' and taken Prifoners. The VeltMarflul Seckendorf judg-' ing, after what had p.fled at Pfarkirchen, that-Count < Minuzzi might be in a dangerous Situation, immediately � difpatched an Officer to him, with Orders to retreat to � Braunau, but the Order came too late 5 and tho' Count ' Seckendorff himfelf fet out for Alt-Ottingen the Moment ' he had difpatched away the faid Officer", yet he did not ' arrive there 'till fome Hours after the Battle. � There he was joined by 800 Horfe, whom Colonel ' Neifs had brought off from the Fight, and was inform *d * that the reft of the Cavalry had thrown themfelves into * Braunau. Colonel Count Hollenftein was killed in the �' A&ion, by a Muflcet Bullet. The Counts Preyfing and * Gabrieli, Major-Generals, received feveral Wounds, and * were taken Prifoners; as wasalfo Baron Meefbach, Co-� lonel of the King of Sweden's fine Regiment of Heffian ' Dragoons ; the two Couhts Levifini are alfo wounded. � Befides thefe Officers of Note, there are many others < of lower Rank in the Number of the killed and wounded. ' Notwithstanding all this, it is certain that our Troops < fought with all the Courage and Conftancy imaginable, �;and did not give Way 'till they were overpowered with * Numbers. The Hefiian Regiment �f Dragoons above-' mentioned, is reduced to One-third of its Complement of * Men: Count Tavanne's and Oeceral Raymonds Regi-' ments, have fuftered altogether as feverely. The Velt � Marfhal Count SeckendorfF, has, fince his Arrival at � Alt Ottingen, fent a full Account of every thing to Mar-� IhalBroglio, defiringhim, at the fame Time, to advance < with all poffible Diligence with 30 or 40 Batallions, in * order to make fome Diverfion that may force the Enemy ' to repafs the Iffer : So that we hope to be foon delivered ' from the Embarras we are in at prefent. We don't ' know exactly what the Lofs of the Auftrians may be; ' but it cannot be lefs than ours, confUering with whit ' Btavery our Troops defended themfelves againft an Enemy * .who was fuperior to them both in Horfe and Foot.' - On Thurfday laft the Tranfports with the Troops oh board from Cork, intended for Flanders, arrived at Spit-head. . . t On Tuefday laft his Majefty's Ship the Anglefea came into Plymouth, from a Cruize on the Spaniards. We are informed there are Letters in Town from the Army under the Command of the Right Hon. the Earl of Stair, fignifyingthe Death of Thomas Strudwick, Efq; Captain in the Right Hon. the Earl of Pembroke's Regiment of Horfe, who was a brave. Officer, and a worthy honeft Gentleman. His Eftate, which is confiderable, defcends to his only Brother Henry Strudwick, Efq; of St. George's, Hanover-fquare. On Wedqefday laft died Capt. Henry Powlett, of the Third Regiment of Foot Guards. � � --- A few Days finceed at Staunton Herold in Leicefter-(hire, after a few Hours Illnefs, the Hon..

Yefterday Morning died, at his Houfe in fted-LionSquare, f the Gout in his Stomachy Alexius Cfayton, Efq; Deputy Steward of the City and Liberties of Weftminiter, under the Right Hon. the^ Earl of Arran. We are aflured that the Right Rev. the Lord Bifiiop o Durham is not dead, as has been reported in fome of the Papers. On Thurfday Mr. John Bell, an eminent Weft-India Merchant, one of the People called Quakers, was married at the Meeting in Gracechurch-ftreetj to Mrs. Owen, Re-lift of Mr. Owen, a Brewer at St. Saviour's Dock, and Daughter of Mr. Zacary late of Cannon-ftreet; an agreeable Lady, with a hSndfonie Fortune. Laft Week William Lepiard, of Ogbourn near Marlborough, Efq; was attack'd going to Ramfbury, in Company with a Farmer, by a fingle High way ma,, who infilled that he had a large. Sum of Money in his Pocket, and demanded it, or he would flioot him ; upon which Mr.Le-diard gave him 501. Then the Highwayman turn'd^ to theFarjneri and told him he never robb'd she Farmers, and then went and flwok him'by the Hand ; but the Farmer grip'd him fall by the Hand, and pull'd him off the.
