London Gazette.- Dispatches from Lord Wellington. Don Carlos d'Espagna, and of brigadier Don Juliòn Sanchez, and with that of the troops under their command respectively; and with that of the Mariscal del Campo Don Miguel Alata, and of brigadier Don Joseph O'Lawlor, employed with this army hy the Spanish government, from whom, and from the Spanish authorities, and people in general, I received every assistance. I could expect. It is but justice likewise to draw your lordship’s atteation, upon this occasion, to the merits of the officers of the civil departments of the army. Notwithstanding the increased distance of our operations from our magazines, and that the country is completely exhausted, we have bitherto wanted nothing, owing to the diligence and attention of commissary-general Mr: Bisset, and the officers of the department under his direction. I have likewise to mention that by the attentiou and ability of Doctor Mac Gregor, and of the officers of the depariment under his charge, our wounded, as well as those of the enemy left in our hands, have been well taken care of; mod-I hope that many of these valuable men will be saved to the service.

Captain Lord Clinton will bave the honour of laying at the feet of his Royal High. Dess the Prince Regent, the eagles and colours taken from the enemy in this action. I enclose a return of the killed and wounded.

Olmedo Jaly 28, 1812.--THE army have continued their march in pursuit of the enemy pince I addressed you on the 24th instant, and we have continued to take many prisoners. A part of the enemy's army crossed the Douro yesterday, near Puente de Douro, and the remainder, their left wing, were in march towards the bridge of Tudela this morning at sine o'clock, when I last heard from our advanced posts. The main body of the allied army is this day on the Adaja and Zapardiel rivers in this neighbourhood; the light caval. ry being in front, in pursuit of the enemy. It appears that Joseph Buonaparte leti Madrid on the 21st, with the arny of the centre, supposed to consist of from ten or twelve thousand infantry, and from two to three thousand cavalry, and he directed his march by the Escoriel, upon Alba de Tornes. He arrived at Blasco Sancho, between Avila and Arevalo on the 25th, where he heard of the defeat of Marshal Marmont, and he retired in the evening; and between that time and the evening of the 26th, he marched through Villa Castin tu Espinar. A non-commissioned officer's patrole of the 14th light dragoons and the 1st bussars, from Arevalo, took in Blasco Sancho on the evening of the 25th, shortly after Joseph Buonaparte had left the place, two officers and twenty-seven men of his own cavalry, who had been left there to follow his rear-guard. I have reason to believe that Joseplı Buunaparte had no regular account of the action of the 2rd, till he passed the Puerte. de Guadarrama yesterday, but he then returned, and was directing his march upon Segovia. I have uot yet beard how far he had advanced. All accounts concur with regard to tbe great loss sustained by the army of Portugal. By accounts from lieutenant-general Sir Rowland Hill to the 24th instant, it appears, that the enemy had in some degree reinforced the troops in Estremadura. The lieutenant general had removed to Zafra. It is reported that General Ballasterós had marched on another ex. pedition towards Malaga, and that be was opposed by a division of the army of the south, vader General Labal. I have not received detailed accounts of commodore Sir Home Popham's operations on the coast, since the capture of Sequeitio, but I understand that he has taken Castro Urdiales.
