On the 29th, upon Advice, that Prince Pio was at Tollosetta with 800 Horse, and aa many Grenadiers or chosen Soldiers, the Marquis de Cilly was de- tach'd thither ; He met in his March 300 of the Enemy s Dragoons led by a Lieutenant Collonel, whom he charged and defeated. Their Commander and some Dragoons were, kill'd, two Captains and several Men were made Prisoners Coming. near Tolosetta, the Kings Troops fell upon a Detachment of the Enemies Infantry, whereof 30 were slain, and 60 taken with three Officers, twn of which were of the Spanish Guards, and the 2d of the Walloon Guards, Prince Pio had retired by five in the.

The Siege is push'd on with Vigour, and we hope to be Master's of the Town, and of the Forts, too in a very short Time, tho' the Heats are very excessive. Tuesday arrived Letters from Italy by the way of France ; which bring several Accounts of an Action in Sicily between the Imperia- lists commanded by Count Mercy and the Spaniards by the Mar- quis de Lede. The most Authentick are these following. Copy of a Letter from the Marquis de Lede, written the 20th of June from the Camp at Villa Franca to the Coaut de Montemar at Palermo. IHave the Honour to acquaint your Excellency, with all, the Joy you can imagine, that the Enemy having to Day attacked his Majesties Army in three different Places, we had the good Fortune to break them, and to repulse them . with very considerable Loss on their Side, but we do not yet know the Number. This Victory is owing to the Valour ot the Troops, to that of the Generals and and to their Experience. The General Officers among the wounded are the Chevalier e Lede, and Don Juan Caracciolo whose Wound is dangerous. Among the kill'd is Brigadier Don Pedro de Tan- queux. Your Excellency will be pleas'd to communicate this News to the Pieror and the Senate to whom I do not write, not having a Secretary with me ; but I will not fail to do it to Morrows I desire - you will order that in Thanksgiving for the View with which God has blessed our Arms, Te Deum be sung. I am, & c The, Maiquis de Lede, A Coppy of a letter from Count Mercy the Camp at Villa Franca the 22nd June,. Sir 6 SIR, « IHave the Honour to inform your Excellency that Yesterday took Post above the Enemies Camp, and am possessed of all the ' Eminences of it, having beaten them from several, but Night coming on, and I being dangerously wounded'in the Reins, the Ball remain- ing Hill in my Body, I have been oblig'd to leave this Affair to M, Zumjungen, who on Account of the Difficulties which he and the other Generals equally find, is of Opinion they cannot be attack'd all at once without great Loss, and that the surer way is to endea- vour to settle our Communication with the Sea in order to starve them which is what they are now prepairing to do, I ' will assist them with my Advice, being unable to act, which is a mortal Affliction to me. We have a great many Officers kill'd and wounded, as well as the Enemy, but nothing decisive has past yet. The Enemy are in- ' trenching and securing themselVes as well as they can, this is all I am able to tell you except the bad News of your Sons being wound- ed. who behav'd himself with all possible Bravery ; I keep him near me, and cause turn to be taken all imaginable Care ot, having the Honour to be most perfectly, & c. - The Count de Mercy, ' , From the Camp at Franca- Villa, June 23. ' SIR, iHave written this Moment to M de Furstembust, Col. Comman- dant at Melazz to send me two Battallions and the Recruits which may have arrived ; and as he will want a Convoy, I desire your excellency to furnish him with a Man of War tor that purpose. I hope you will forthwith send it to him having the Honour to be & c. ' ' The Count de Mercy. Extract of a Letter from Captain Saunders, dated from Naples the • ' 30th of June. ON the 20th Instant the Imperial Army under Gen. Mercy at- tacked the Spaniards in, their Camp at Franca Villa, and forc- ed them from several heights and advantageous posts, tho' with considerable Loss. As soon as Sir George Bing received an Account what had passed, from Gen. Mercy he sent me to Melazzo to dispatch two battal- lions '•. which being immediately shipp'd, were put un- .. is Majesties Ship Captain, with Orders to proceed Faro to the Southward near Tavermina ; where His Majesties Ship Rupert, with the Victuallers for the Army lie. Sir George Byng imbarked on the Neapolitan Galley the 26th 111 the EVening, and passed through the Faro, designing to'proceed to Syracusa, to propose to Count Massei the finding from thence, by Transports now lying there, four Battallions to reinforce Gen. Mer- cy. i am order'd to continue here some Days with his Majesties Ship the Oxford. P S It is advised, that Gen. Zumjungen was not without Hopes of attacking a Post near the Enemies Camp before the Succours ar- rived ; in which if he should succeed, it will intirely cut off the. Comunication of the Spanish Army with Catenea. Upon the whole, it appears to me, that, the late Battle was to the Advantage of the Imperial Army, though the Spainards made very great Re- joicings on their Side; which I believe was rather to spirt up the People, than from any Advantage they had obtain'd.' Relation of the Battle between the Emperors and the Spanish Army, Which came from a wounded Officer to Capt. Saunders. Tavermina, June 1719 N. S." THE 20th of this Month. the Emperors Army came up with the Spanish Army at Franca Villa. At four a Clock after Dinner the fire began on both sides, the Enemies'were. posted on the' other side or the River called Roselino, and Were behind their Trench- es which were so strong, that they seem'd to have been made a long- Time. Our Troops attacked them even open. for Which it hath cost us much Blood ; the Night oblig'd us to leave off Firing. On our Side are kill'd Col. Odyer and the Prince of Holstein; and wounded Col. Bandrrat. Col. Beaufort Col. Odyer, Gen. Secken- dorf Gen. Lantizy, Gen. Rhor, Adm. Bings Son a Danish Volun~ teer. The Prince Of Hesse Cassel, and Gen. Mercy; We have lost in the action betWeen 3 and 4000 Men, but tis said the Number kill'd on the Enemies side is far greater ; among their Dead are the Marquis de Lede's Brother, Gen.
