From before this army this able General made a retreat, which had some circum stances attending it which marked it as a victory, as he took no less than twenty. eight pieces of cannon, The retreat of the Prince of Cobourg across the Sambre was effected without the loss of a man. The loss lay wholly withOen. Clairfait's army. At the village of l Waltignies, the Auf trians were repuhed three different times by the superior numbers of the enemy,but they as regularly returned, and forced the French to retire. The fourth time, how ever, the Auftrians were obliged to give way & retreat to a redoubt, evacuating' at the fame time Eclaubes and Solveanirs. In this bloody contest one Austrian regi ment loft 700 men. The day after the action with General Ciairfait, 15,000 of the French army de serted—a proof that they did npt relilh the fer.vice into which they had been forc ed.
