BULLETIN.—(Translation. )
Head-quarters, Wurlzen, near fiuudzcn, May 19.
Since the battle of the 2d of May, the allied ariky has
had no engagement of consequence wita he cou y- Sue
small alairs have taken place, which have constantly pro.
ved the good conduct of the troops.
The following ts a short account of the operations since
the 2d of May. In order to Weaken the enemy’s line of
operation by drawing him from his supplies, und to retire
upon our own, theGen, commanding the aliicd army pro.
posed to take up a position in Upper Lusatia. ‘Theenem
did not interrupt Us operadua, but slow ly followed the
army. Jhowever, a brisk cannonade of a Prussian corps
took place between Golditz and Waldheim, bute they ree
tired in the greatest vider. In this atiair Liert. Col. and
Brigadicr vou Stuuametz distinguished himself with his LBri-
sade, and the Prussian Gen. St. Priest, with creat judy.
ment and decision attacket the eneny in flank, oy wiieh
the atlair was decided; the enemy lust JOO men kiled and
wounded, Our loss in this action was 2 ollicers and 150
men. We have to regret the loss of Major Kall, a most
distinguished officer.
On the Gth aud 7th, the enemy crossed the Elbe at Dres.
den and Meissen, Several small detachinents of partizans
returned to the left bank of the river to annoy the ene.
my’s rear, One of tiese detachments, under Licut. Zale
mer, of the Bra denburg hussars, took an Officer char.
ged with dispatches of consequence, and 20 horses,
Zwekaw, and sately rejoined the army on the 10th.
About this Gine it was ascertained, that the King of
Saxony had declared for the enemy, and had given up
Torgau to the Freneh troops. ‘Vhis intelligence determe
ined the allies to evacuate the Middle ibe, and to con.
centrate the army at Bautzen,
The army has been in this position seven days, ver
quit, aud daily incr asiag in Numbers, and a battle is
shortly expected to take place.
Our detached corps Continue successfully to annoy the
enemy. On the 14th, Gen. Jciowaishi surprised a post
at Kh onigsbruck, and took the whole detachment prisons
ers, Consisting of 8 ollicers and 173 men. On the 12th
and Loth, the corps of Gen. Miloradovitch had allairs, in
which the enemy lust 1OOO men killed and L500 wounded
aud 6 officers and 300 mea were made prisoners. On the
I8th, Gen. Jelowaiski made prisoners a troop of lancers
of the Dutch Guards ; and in the afteruvun Gen. Milorae
dovitz, made a reconnvissance, in which the enemy lost
100 killed, and 130 prisoners, Deserters come in dail
from the enemy, and he suftiers cousiderably by our skir-
ead-quarters, Wurtzen, May 20.
My Lord,—The enemy detached on the evening of the
(7th and 18th in the direction of Luckau and Lubben on
our right; the force was stated to be Regnicr’s corps.
Intelligence being received that Gen. Lauriston, with
9009 men, would march to reinforce the troops above
mentioued on the 19th, Gen, Barclay de Tolly and Gen.
d’Yorck with a strong corps, were sent to intercept and
fall upon Gen. Lauriston.
Gen. Barclay de Tolly fell in with the enemy in the
neighbourhood of Konigswerde, and a sharp contest en-
sued, which was put an end to only by night-fall, and
in which the allies were completely successful—they drove
back the enemy at all points, took upwards of 1500 pri.
soners, a Gen, of division and 11 pieces of cannon. The
enemy’s loss in killed aud wounded was considerabli.—
The cavalry were in pursuit when the accounts came
away. The loss on our side has not yet been ascertain d,
nor am I in possession of the details of this afiair.

Paris, May 29.—Wer Majesty the Empress Queen and
Regene has received the following intelligence respecting
the events which have passed at the army during the days
of the 19th, 20th, VQlst aud 22d, and of the position of the
army on the 23d,
“Phe Emperor Alexander and the King of Prussia at.
tributed the loss of the battle of Lutzen to the faults their
Generals had committed in the direction of the combined
forces, and particularly to the difficulties attached to an
Ollensive movement of from 150 to 180,000 men. ‘The
resolved upon (aking the position of Bautzen and Hoche
kerch, already celebrated in the fHistory of the seven ycars
war; fo unite there all the reinforcements which they ex.
pected from the Vistula and other points in their rear, to
add to that position every thing for which art could fure
nish the means, and there run the chances of a fresh battle,
of which all the probabilities appeared to them to be ir
their favour.
**The Duke of Tarente, commanding the 11th Corps, left
Bischofswerda on the 15th, in the evening of which day he
found himself within cannon shot of Bautzen, where he
found all the enemy. He took 1 position. From. this
moment the French army marched upon the camp at
**The Emperor left Dresden on the 18th, he slept at
Harla, and on the 19th at ten in the morning, arrived at
Bautzen. He employed all the day reconnoitring (the
enemy’s positions,
We learned that the Russian corps of Barclay de Tolly,
Langeron and Sass, aud Kleist’s Prussian corps had re.
Joined the combined army, and that its force might be ese
timated from 150 to 160,000 men.
**On the 19th in the evening the enemy’s position was as
follows :—His left was supported by mountains covered
with wood, and perpendicular to the course of the Spreo,
nearly aleague from Bautzen, Bautzev contained his
View original centre; this town had been entrenched, and covered by
redoubts. The right of the caemy leaned upon fortified
rising points, which defended the debouches from the Spree,
from the side of the village of Nimschet; all his front was
covered by the Spree; this very strong position was but
a first position.
‘‘We distincly perceived, at 3,000 toises distance in the
rear, the vround newly dug up, and works which marked
their second position. ‘The left was still supported by the
same mountains, about 2000 toiscs in the rear of those of
the first position, and cuusiderably in advance of the vil.
lage of Hochkerch.
“The centre leaned upon three entrenched villages,
where sv many works had been erected, that they might
been have considered as strong places. A marshy and
difficult ground covered three quarters of the centre.—
Lastly, their right leaned in rear of the first position upon
Villages and rising ground likewise intrenched.
‘ihe enemy’s front, either in the first or second posi-
tion, extended about a league and a half, After this’ re.
connoissance, it was easy Lo couccive how, notwithstand.
ing a lost battle, like that of Lutzen, and eight days re.
treating, the enemy could still have hopes in the chances
of fortune. According to the expression of a Russian,
Officer, who was asked what they intended to do, **We
neither wish to advance, nor retire.’”? You are Masters
of the first point, replied a French Olhicer, aud the event,
in a few days, will prove whether you are Masters of the
other. ‘The head-puarters of the two Sovereigns were in
the village of Naftschen.
‘On the t9th, the position of the French army was as
‘Upon the right was the Duke of Reggio, leaning up-
on the mountains to the left of the Spree, and separated
from the left of the enemy by the valley.
“The Duke of Tarente was belure Bautzen, on horse.
back, apon the Dresden road. ‘Lhe Duke of Ragusa was
upon the left of Bautzen, opposite the village of Niemen.

marched to the bathe and victory of Llochhirch,

had been constructed near the village of Jackowitz, and
separated from Che cham of mountains by streams and

KKreckwitz, were strenghtened by batteries, and were
cousidered the right point of the line.
The ground in the centre was favorable for cavalry,
except in some marshy and uneven parts where it would
impede its operations. I leches were constructed, anden-.
trenchments thrown up, in advantageous distances on the
plain, along the front of which ran a deep boggy rivulet,
which extended round the right of the position.
