Downing-Street, June 15, 1813
A dispatch, of which the following is an extract, has
been received this morning by the Earl Bathurst, address.
ed to his Lordship by the Marquis of Wellington, and
dated Carvajales, May 31 :—
The troops arrived at Salmancaon the 26th inst. and
we found the enemy still in the town, with one division
of infantry. and three squadrons of cavalry, and some
cannon of the Army ef the South, under the command of
View original Cen. Villatte—The enemy evacuated the town on out
approach, but they waited longer than they ought upom
the high ground in the neighbourhood, and afforded an
opportunity for the cavalry, under Generals Fane and
Victor Alten (the former of which crossed the ‘Sormes at
the Ford of Santa Martha, and the latter at the bridge),
to do thems good deal of injury in their retreat; many
were killed or wounded, and we took about 200 prisoners,
7 tumbrils of ammunition, some baggage, provisions, &c.
—The enemy retired by the road of Babila. Fuento,
and near Huerta was joined by a body of infantry and
cavalry, on their march from Afba. lL then ordered our
troops to discontinue their pursuit, our infantry not bes
ing up. Major-Gen. Long, and Brig.-Gen, Motillo, in
command of the Spanish division, attacked Alba, from
which place the enemy retired. In the course of the 27tR
and 28th, I established the troops which had marched
from the Agueda and Upper Estremadura, between the
Tormes and the Douro, under the command of Leut..
Gen, Sir R. Hill; I set off myself, on the 20th, to join
the troops here, aud arrived that day at Maranda de Douro,
and here on the Sist. I found the troops on the Esla
under the orders of Sir T. Graham, as [ had intended,
with their left at Tabara, and in communication with the
Gallician Army, and their right at this place, aid all the
arrangements made for passing the sla. The greatest
part passed that river this morning, the cavalry by fords,
and the infantry by a bridge, which jt was necessary te
throw over that river, as it wa. su deep that some men,
even of the cavalry, were lustin the passage. The Ene
glish hussars who crossed urst, touk an Oticer and 33
men prisoners, near Valdeperdices.—The enemy have eva.
cuated Zamora, and our patroles have been in that town:
the troops which were there have fallen back upon Toro,
where I understand they have one division of infantry
and a brigade of cavalry. —It appears that the enemy have
joined at La Navadel Rey, the troops which retired from
Salamanca, Avila, &c. with those which were at Arevalo
and Medina del Campo; and [ imagine that as this part
of the aimy alvances, they will retire across the Douro,
—The enemy’s troops were still at Madrid, and on the
Fagus, on the 22d; but T conclude that they will have
evacualed that part of the country on hearing of our
The late hardfoughkt battles in and near Bautzen, it seems,
have led to a suspension of hostile operations between the
arinies of Irance and those of the allies, Bonaparte have
ing proposed an Armistice, which, it is said, had been
acceded to ;—for the only exception to this conclusion
appears to rest upon a report, that the Emperor of Ruse
sia had refused compliance, as far as regarded tho period
that had been prescribed for its continuance, which was
from the 4th June until the 20th July ; but that he had
offered bis ratification for a term of fifteen days, provided
such stipulations as he should propose were agreed to on
the part of the French Ruler; the result of which propo.
sals, however, has not becn satisfactorily stated in the pae
pers beforeus. ‘This Armistice has, no doubt, been the
Ofispring of Austrian interfercuce, whose Emperor has ig
view the annexation of certain places to his territories,
which this step may occasion, either by negociation or by
means of war. ‘Ihe signatures to this document, as pub.
lished in a French paper, are those of Caulincourt, for
lrance; Count Schouvaloll, in behalf of Russia; and
Gen. Kleist, on the part of Prussia; and the following are
the provisions of the
Art. 1.—THlostilities shall cease upon all points apon the

reation of the Combined Army, setting out from the fron.
tiers of Bohemia, shall pass through Detersbach, Psaffen.
dorf, Landshut, follow the Bober to Ruderstadt; pass
from thence through Bolkenhayn, Striegan, follow the

through Bettlern, Olfaschin, and Althoff.—The combined
army shall beat liberty to occupy tac towns of Lundshut,

ting out from the fronticr which towches Bohemia, shall,
pass thro’ Serffershaus, Air-Ramnitz, follow the course of
the smal? river which falls into the Bober, not far from
Bertelsdorf ; afterwards from the Bober to Laha. From
thence to Nicukick, upon the Katzbach, by the most di-
rect linc, froin whence it will follow the course of that.
river to the Oder.—The town of Patchwitz, Deignitz,
Goldberg, and Lahn, no matter on what side the river
they are situated, may, as well as their suburbs, be oc-

the French and combined armies shall be neutral, and
cannot be occupied by any troops, noteven by the Lands-
turm—The disposition consequently applies to the town
of Breslau.—From the mouth of the Katzback, the line
of demarcation shall follow the course of the Oder to the
frontiers of Saxony and Prussia, and join the Elbe in pas-
sing the Oder, not far from Muhtrose, and follow the
froniiers of Prussia, so that all Saxony, the country of
Dessarc, and the small States surrounding the Princess of
the Confederation of the Rhine, shall belong to the French
army, and all Prussia shall belong to the combined army.
The Prussian territories in Saxony shall be considered as
peutra’, and shall nut be occupied by any troops. The
Elbe to ifs mouth fixes and determines the line of demar-
cation between the Belligercut armies, with the exception
of the points herealter mentioned. The Frencharmy shall
remain in possessivn of the Isles, and every thing which it
occupied in the 32d military division, on the 8th of June,
at midnight —if Hamburg is only besieged, that town shall
be treated like other besieged towns.—All the articles of
the present Armistice which are relative to them are ap-
plicable to it.--The line of the advanced march of the
Belligerent armics after the epoch of Sth June, at mid.
night, shall form for the 23d military division, that of the
demare¢ation of the armistice, with the military alterations
which the respective Comtnandauts shall judge necesary.
These alterations shall be made in concert with an officer

If any credit is due to the subsequent extract of a letter
from Madeira, the success of the Allies in Spain may yet
prove a timcly diversion in fayour of the united Powers
in the North of Exrope.—**The latest accounts from the
Peninsula, are to the 28th of June. They mention, that
Lord Wellington then was near Victoria, ; that the French
were retreating to the Pyrenees, and had crossed the Ebro,
after blowing up the works at Victoria and Burgos ; that
Lord Wellington had taken their military chest; and that
there had been a few partial eogagements, in which dhe
Allies were victorious. Miva was at Madrid, and pre-
paring to proceed to Arragon,—Suchet was retreating by
Arrago for Navarre. The Athes under Geu, Murray,
it is reported, had taken Tarragona.’

confidence in the largest, the best onicered, and bes,

truly British cheers, followed his words, and the
anchor was weighed,
Tu respect to Americ¢a, we find adetailed account of
additional success on the part of the British Army on the
frontiers of Canada,
We have received American intelligence to the 15
of June, which state, thatthe American force which
landed in Canada, had been surprised in their camp
