" I have the honor to inform you of
the success of an attack upon Marchiennes,
which, by order of his Royal Highness,
took place last night.
" Eight battalions were put under the
command of Major General Krav, for
this enterprize. They marched at mic'-
night from Orchies in three columns, each
column headed by two officers and 60
volunteers, fupporfed by 300 men. These
were not permitted to load. The reft of
the troops of the different columns, with
their cannon, followed at fomc diftancc.
A detachment from the corps of Major
Gen. Otto, ported by Denain, marched
about the fame time, formed iu 4 columns,
in similar order that the town might be
attacked at once Upon all fides. The lat
ter troops were discovered by the enemy's
out posts, and prevented from penetrating
by the opposition which they met with.
Those under Gen. Kray, one column of
which advanced upon the high road from
Grchies, and the two others npon the left
of it, got, about 2 o'clock in the morning
within a ftiort distance of the town before
they were perceived.

" The volunteers at the head of the
column which was upon the road, fell in
with a picquet about 100 yards from th*
gate, which they surprised, killed the
greater part of it, and pursued the reft l.»
closely, that they entered the place 1-
long with them. The troops in the town
made little resistance. After being- driv
en from the market plate, where they
had assembled, they retreated to a con
vent near it. They there proposed
terms of capitulation, which Gen. Kray
consented to, as they surrendered prison
ers of war, with the folc condition of the
officers being permitted to wear their
