ENGAGEMENTS AT MUNCHENQRA TZ. < IThe following official report of the engagement at Miiachengratz has been received from the Prussian head-quarters: â Munchengiabz, June 28. 11 The task of the army to-day w&s to cross the line of the Iser and press forward in the direction of Mün. chengrätz-a task which was successfully effected, notwithstanding the excessive heat of the day, which rendered marching extremely toilsome. The Im- perialists tried to prevent the advance of the army, but were driven back at all points. At Munchingratz, where the Austrians had burnt the bridge, a sharp engagement began at nine o'clock, in which infantry and artillery took part. The prac- tice of our rifled guns was very good. An ammunition wagon belonging to the enemy was exploded, and, under protection of our fire, the troops succeeded in throwing a fresh bridge across the Iser by noon. The Austrians made skilful use of the conformation of the ground. Thus, at ten they unexpectedly brought up a battery upon a rocky plateau descending towards the valley of the Iser, which impeded the advance of the Horn division. The Franseoky division nevertheless succeeded in gaining possession of the plateau, and in capturing the village of Bossin after a sharp contest. The Austrian losses to-day again far exceed ours. We have not lost altogether more than 150 men, while 1,200 prisoners alone have been brought in. All the places passed through by our troops have been abandoned by their inhabitants. At Miinchen- gratz, a town with a population of 'perhaps 4,000, we did not find 50 people remaining. Families fled with all their property even while their troops were entering. The wells are almost everywhere filled up and polluted. Our men have everywhere shown the best possible spirit. The troops opposed to us be- longed to the 1st Austrian Corps, the Kalik Brigade, and the Von Edelsheim Cavalry Division. Saxons were also perceived among the enemy."
