FRO-YITfl E LONDON GAZETTE. Dvteiling-street, June 15. A dispatch, .if which rhe following is an extract, lias heen ,-receive¡,! this morning by Earl Barh- • -ursf, rddressed to lus Lordship by the Marquis of Wellington, and dated Carvajaies, Slay I. The troops arrived "at Salamanca on file 2611) instant, and we found the enemy still in the town with one division of iufillltry and three squadrons ol cavalry, and some cannon, ot the army of the South, under the command of General Villalte. The cnemv evacuated the town on our approach, but they waited longer than th >y ought upon the high ground in the neighbourhood, and afforded an opportunity for the cavalry, under General Fane and General Victor Alten, f the former of t which crossed tlie Tormes at the Ford of Santa- Martha, and the latrer a' the bridge) to do them a good deal of inpiry in their retreat. Ilaiiv vere killed or wounded, and we took about two hun- dred prisoners, seven tumbrils of ammnitmn, some baggag?, provisions, &c. The enemy re- tired by (he road of Babila Fuento, and near j Huena were joined by a body of infanry and ca.alry on their marcfi from Alba. I then or- dered our r roops to discontinue their pursuit, our infuitry not being up. Mujor-General Long and Brigadier-Gen.

I estab- lished the troops which had marched from the Agueda and Uppc Estremadura, hetween the 'l'orn¡es and ])ol1ro, IInc!f1' the r,olOmand of Lient.- General Sir Rowland Hill and I set oiF myself en the 9.9 th to join the troops here, andarriverJ that, day at Miranda de Douro, an 1 here on the Sist. I found the troops on the Esla under the orders of Sir Thomas Graham, as I had intended, with Ih..¡r ler, at Tabara, and in communication wiiii the Gallician army, and their right at this plfce, arrangements made for passing the Esla. The grea'est. part passed that river this minting, rhe cavalry by fords, and the infantry by a bridge, whicli it was necessary to ihrow over the river, as it was so deep i.iitt some men, even of 'he cavalry, were lost in the passage. The English hussars, who crossed first, took an offi- cer and thirty men prisoners near Valdeperdices. The enemy have evacuated Zamora, and onr patndes 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 i,lia, the enemy have joined at la Nava (leI Ray, the 'roops which retired from Sa- latnanca, AviJa, &c. with those which were at .Arevalo and Medina del Campo; and I imagine that as this part of the army advances they will retire across the Douro. The enemy's troops were still at Madrid and on (he Tagus on the 22d, but I conclude that they will have evacuated that part of the country on hearing of our movements.

SUPPLEMENT to the L > DON GAZETTE. SATURDAY, JUNE 19. WAR DEPARTMENT. Downing-streef, June, 19,181, A dispatch, dated Boilzenhurgh, the 41h of June, 1813. of which the following is an ex trie!together with an enclosure, of which a trans! Hi on is annexed, has been received this diy from Brigadier General Lyon, employed upon <i particular service in Germany. ilavinj arrived here late last night from Wis mar, I avail myself of the earliest moment to transmit a copy oft he official details; receiv- ed fro n General Czemicheff, giving an ac- J count of his affair with the enemy near Hal- berstadt. Bernburg, May 13, 1813. Salt,— I hasten to congratulate your Excel lem-y on the signal advantage just gained at llaiherstadl hy the detachments which I have the honour of commanding. Fourteen pieces ol cannon, an immense park of artillery, more than eight hundred draught 1, horses, above 1000 prisoners, including aGe are nil of Division (Oclmej, a Colonel, ami s- vera! Officers, and very considerable stores, j)ve fallen iiuo tile hands of the conque rors Having received permission from your Ex- cellency to act according to circumstances, I "in consequence passed I he Ellie at Frechland «<>» the night of the 56 h, and proceeded in the direction of Burg-stali here I learnt, from various tellers which had been intercepted by my parties, that a large convoy of artillery, escorted by c2000 men, were to pass the night' of I he nth at Hal berstadt Mv horses having been s tliiciently rested, and being in ttie besl possible foiidtisou, 1 resolved on going the 15 isiiks (German,) which was the distance to j Halbersiadl, without hailing. l'o iny arei, j surprise, 1 succeeded in performing the whole I of I his distance, with out slopping, in SO hours. On iny arrival at. lladmersleben, 1 learned ¡ that a second convov was at HPS sen, on the Brunswick road, three miles and a half from Ilalberstadt, where it was intended io arrive in the morning to join the first, in the view I of proceeding with greater safely on its inarch to the Graud Army, This last convoy was escorted by 4000 iiifatitry, 500 cavalry, and many pieces of artillery. Notwithstanding the fatigue of my Ineo and horses, after so harassing a march, I resolved to continue my route, and £ o make ari immediate attack upon the enemy at Haibersladt before the arrival of the and in order lo takf advantage of the fault he had committed m placing his guns and the convoy outside of the town, although at a very short distance from the waSis. After reconnoitring at four o'clock in the morning, I ascertained thai the enemy had placed his guns in a square, the middle of which was filled with ammunition waggons and other carriages, and was lined with infantry, the llanks being covered by 250-horse The whole formed a sort of for- tress, almost Impenetrahle to cavalry. One I of my first cares having been to Tut off the enemy from the town; a single gale which the enemy hud neglected to close, afforded me the means of getting possession of Ihe town, where the brave Colonel free >ff charg ed the rear of the troops which were march- ing out to join the square, and pursued llieo ery uenly up to tÎle gUlls On the other side, Colonel Waslaw, whom I had sent forward wi;h two regiments, in hopes of surpr.sing lire encriy, made- two very I tine charges against the squ ire •, but the ene my having no-ice of our mnrch, aud being upon their gu nd, ne con'd uot ni^ke an\ im- pression The enemy now opened a heavy cannonade from fourteen guns, to which 1 Co it id only oppose two; by the lire ot which, however, five ot the enemy's ammunition waggons were blown up One of mine met Co it id only oppose two; by the lire ot which, however, five ot the enemy's ammunition waggons were blown up One of mine met I wllh the same fate, and four horses were lulled. At this moment a regiment, of Cossacks, which Iliad detached UPOil the road by whhn the enemy's reinforcements were advancing, brought the intelligence that they were within two miles of us; this delermiued me io make ,t a general and decisive effort against the square with all iny troops. Willi tins view 1 ordered all the scattered Cossacks to seizfe the samt1 moment at which, the attack would he made by l.te regular Cavalry. AHer exhorilllg my soldiers to do their doty, 1 ordered all my people to charge at I lie same moment. This brilliant attack against a formidable square, defended fly fourteen pieces of cannon, sur- passld my expectations, and covered wi'h glo- ry the hussars of isoum, commanded by Ooio <el Tieman, and two regiments of H Iga dra- | goons the Cossacks.also seconded admirably I the efforts of these 400 horse. III ail JIISlilllt the batteries were carried, and my brave men in the middle of the square here the carnage was horrible, as the eiittny defended himself >bstinately, even tiring upon us from under tiie carriages. More than 700 were killed, the rest taken, and 1 venture to assert, thai not an individual escaped out of all this corps, scarcely was the slaugnter terminated wiicu the enemy's column's began to appear, pres ■:ing upon mv Cossacks. 1 was then obliged sill)))ol.l ttlefil,,iiiortlvi- to ltil)Ctos,Ilu off the captured guns and prisoners. waul of time 1 could cairy off only 14 guns, aud 12 ammunition waggons. I biew up the rest in the very presence of the enemy, i de- stroyed or distributed to the inhabitants all the stores winch were in Ihe town, and at seven us ihe evening 1 teiired wilh my booty to Cocii- sledl. Such is the summary account of this ..e -oill its exploit: it has the more merit from its having been undertaken alter a march ot 15 miles, which has betMi followed by an engagement, o? more than seven hours. It is pow- er to express to your Excellency how well all IllY peo pie have done their duty in this brilli- ant affair. Thai the Cossacks should have been able to support, a inarch of fifteen miles, and a com. bit of seven nours afterwards, has not surpris- ed me so much as to see t-uy regular cavalry periorm it as well as Uie/u» without leaving a single horse behind.

POLITICAL SUMMARY. NORTHERN WAR. — ITappears by the French papers rect-ived since our last, that no action of importance has taken place between the contending armies since the sanguinary conflicts of Bautzen and Wurtz- cheu. These papers, however, contain a copy of the Armistice entered into between Bonaparte and the Allies. Hostilities ceased on the 1st instant, and the Armistice wassign ed and ratified on the4lh, By the terms ofit the line of demarkaliou for both Armies, lakes I its departure from the frontiers of Bohemia— the Allies passing through Landshut to the Bohr, a,si! following that river to Kuderstndt, turn short off towards Boikenhaim, proceed to Striegau, and pursuing the course of Ihe Stri eganwesser to Catilh, turn to the right, and ge! to the 0 ier through Oifascliiu and Althoff. The line for the French Army as soon as it quits the BohemIa" frontiers, proceeds to Alt Kamnitz, and from thence to Ihe Bohr, which il occupies as far as ihe town of Lahn, from Hienet i! traverses the lerritosy between the Bohr andthe Katzbaek,whose course it follows to the Oder Of course Bresiuu is between the two Armies, and is to be neutral it is not j to be occupied by any troops, not. even the Lnudstrum. This is the line of demarkaliou j between Ihe two main armies. But it. is conti t nued from ihe moulh of Ihe Katzbaek along I trie Oder to the frontiers of Saxony ami Prus j sia, and joins the iilhe, whose course il follows ¡ to iis mouth. However, !be French Army is. of course, Jo occupy Hamburgh, one of the articles staling, ihai ii is Io remain in pos session of the Isles in Ihe Kibe, and every thins; on the Slh of June, at midnight." The be sieged .and blockaded fortresses are 'to he re victualled every five days. By the JOlh article it is stipulated, that on the 12!h inst. all Ihe i)r Ihe Elbe, or in Saxony, are to relurn iulo Prussia. Of course Bulow's corps will retire I Ollt of Saxony. and 1eltt':lho¡¡¡ .;lId Ihe Hus I '.•i-ans thai, were beyotsd ihe Kibe will proceed I into I in: Prussian territories. lIence BlIOlla parte is left undisputed master of lue mouths of the Elbe and Ihe Weser. In this arrange- ment we iiisd uoiioiice taken of the Swedish troops. It is, however, highly probable, that in the approaching conferences hotb Sweden aud this country will be inviled to become parties. The cessation of hosi ililies is (o con- tinue to the 20til of next -month six days' notice being given by either party of their re-commencement. PENINSULA.— The intelligence we commu- nicated last week of the entrance of our troops iato Salamanca, is confirmed by the dispatches from Lord Wellington, given in Tliesday's ,'azelle. A that" there has been a gallant affair between the 101 h Hussars, supported by part of I he 18lh, and a brigade of French cavalry, under Genera! Dijon, on ihe 2d, at a village near Toro, Lieutenant Collon was killed and Cap!. LloJd made prisoner. The lOih and 13th took 207 prisoners, and but for ihe French havin«- much artillery Hie whole Brigade would have been destroyed. Genera! Dijon r;iI1 away at the first onset. The Life Guards are wilil the Light Brigade." AMERICA.—The Jubilee, which has arrived at Glasgow, brought Halifax papers, which slate that. General Dearborn, with 5000 troops had taken the British fort of Little York, in Upper Canada, alter a hard contes!. Our troops retired in good order. About 200 ol ihe enemy, including General Pike, were destroyed by i,tt explosion of a magazine. ..cZ"9.£aI'Tr.Z,A_
