' The ship Eugene in 57 days from Amster
dam, arrived at this port to-day, and brings
the last intelligence from the European con
tinent. On the 9th f October hostilities
commenced between France and Prussia
the battle lasted nine days the French were
successful. On the 17th they entered Berlin
Prince Hohenloe is stated to have beerT
wounded Prince Ferdinand and the Duke of
Brunswick to hare been killed 25,000 Prus
sians are said to have been killed 100 pieces
of cannan taken the Russians were on the
frontiers but retrained from engaging.
- December 10. . .
WE mentioned yesterday, that intelligence
had been received ot the deieat of the Prus
sians by the French army. We are not pre
pared to say that the intelligence is correct
to the extent to which it has gone. There
is however too much cause for apprehension
that the Frenchhave been successful, although
it may not be true that they have been sue
cessful to the amount which has been men
tioned. It may be that the forces of Buona
parte have conuuered in iome instances, but
it may not be a fact that they have Uken as
many prisoners and killed as many men as'
the Dutch accounts would make us believe.
. Let us see what these accounts state', and
the American reader will determine the de
gree or credit which is due to them. We
do not say that they are entirely untrue, but
we say that we hope that they are not correct
to the extent of the statement.
We will give in a summary way the va
rious accounts which have been received.
JTht Hague papers of Oct. 17, say That
more than one desperate action had been
fought hetweeu the armies" That Prince
Louis Ferdinand brother to the King of
Prussia, and commanding one of the bri
gades was killed, and that a great number
of prisoners and 3 ? pieces of cannon were ta
ken. The Hague papers do not say when or
where this battle took place. But they state
in consequence of this happy event the royal
flag has betn hoisted this (lay upon the obser
. The London papers of Oct. 26, in remark
ing upon this intelligence, state ,
From this meagre account, it is impos
sible to derive any certain information.
Neither the scene of the action, nor the dtf
when it took place, nor the names or the num
ber of the divisions engaged, nor any details,
in short, which could ensble us to form an o
jinjon respecting the truth or falsehood of
, the intelligence, are given. We have onl;
the bare assertion that several engagement
have taken place between the French ant
Prussians, the results of which have been do
ci 'erf'y in favour of the former. Withotf
venturing to contradict the general fact, wi
mar be allowed to observe, that it is rathe
extraordinary nothing of this intelligent!
should have transpired at Hamburgh on thi
17th, wh'ch is almost. one hundred m;lfi j
rifsrer the scene of action than the IWpuq'I
u;!Vini; this disastrous affair to have oo
cifTtd tube left wing cf the Prussian arm.
A few dys, or hours, ptr'iaps, will put us 11
r-w"un of tlir truth. Let us hope, in the
f rt 1 Ikc, that this Dutch version of the aC
f.ir i l.i?1ily eiartiterstrd. S me little ar
tifice may he justified by the state cf the pub
lic min I h llotlscd j an1 in whatever rvgsrds

t e should irive just the same degree of ere

There Is ininromUtcnry between the "ac
counts In the Du'ch papers, of the move
ments of the armies, and those which we
hare received by the way of Hsmburf,h It

prevailed. Prince Louis was kiUed, the pas

compelled to retreatr with the loss of sever- .
al men,, and some cannon. These are the
most authentic particulars Avhich we have
been able to extract from the Mail respect

destroy the considerable magazines which
they had formed at Naumburg,

pre fled forward with their characteriftic

in which it appears that a large proportion
of the refpecUve armies was engaged. We
cannot, from the accounts brought by the
Mail, afcertain the day on which this bat.
tie was fought, but the refult of it is Ra
ted to have been decidedly in favor of the
Pruflians. Upwards of 20,000 French are
reported cither to have fallen in, the field,
or to have been made prifoners. The of
