LONDON, September 17.
Yesterday we received by express the Paris jour- '
nalsto the 15th and tliofe of BruiTels '.o the 12th.
By an article inserted in the latter, we are led to
bclicye that Jourdari intended to assemble all hit dif
ferent corps at Frankfort, when it is probable his <
head-quatters are arrived by this time. Some of
the letters pretend that Jourdan's retreat is only a 1
llratagem, calculated to draw the archduke-jnto a a
more fatal snare than that into which he fell by i
Jourdan's retreat across the Rhine at Coblentz, in i
the beginning of the campaign. But we do not c .
concur in this opinion. Jourdan's letters plainly '
shew that he has fuftaitrtd several severe defeats
We jdo not think it improbable that either the arch
duke will cut off Moreau's retreat, or Moreau will
cut off the archduke's. Moreau's army now be- "
comes much more an object of intereil than that of '
Jourdan. Fiom the banks of the Nab to Ramelf
berg, the distance which Jourdan has retreated
since the archduke crossed the Danube at Ingol
ftadt, is full Ijo miles.
