"Sixth Bullitin.

Wilna, July 11, 1812.

The king of Naples continues to follow the enemy's rear-guard. On the 5th he met the enemy's cavalry in a position upon the Dwina. He caused it to be charged by the brigade of light cavalry, commanded by General Baron Subervie. The Prussian regiments, the Wirtemburgcrs and Poles, which form a part of this brigade, charged with the greatest intrepidity. They overturned a line of Russian dragoons and hussars, and took 200 prisoners, with their horses. When they arrived on the other side of the Dwina, they broke down the bridges, and showed a disposition to defend the passage of the river, General Count Montbrun then brought up his five batteries of light artillery, which, during several hours, carried destruction into the ranks of the enemy. The loss of the Russians has been considerable.
