Post Man (Newspaper) - January 18, 1801, London, Middlesex attttDapJanuary 18, co XllCfctapJanuary 21, 1701. Nerva, December 23. ^He Svptdifb Army having refreflied themfelves ever fince rhe Jate memorable Vi&ory they obtained over rhe Mufcovihs, they have received orders to hold them-felves in a readinefs ro march, and provide themfelves with*l! neceflaries for a long march. This makes fome People belieye, that the King intends for Riga, and others that he is refolved to march to the Country belonging to the Mujcov'ites, in order to dilperfe the Troops or'that Nation, that are 'rallying about Uovogrod and Pleflow, but thefe conjectures are uncertain, tho die latter feems more probable, becaufe fome thoufund FtuUnders ire already arrived in Ingria to joyn his Majefty. Whatever it is, we hear the Army is to breakup Tomorrow, and that rhe General Officers taken in rhe Jate Fig.hr, will be fent to Revel. The Duke of Cray has deilred robe admitted to his Majefties Audience, and we hear he is to have it this evening. Our men have taken 113 Barks laden with Proviiions which weiedefigned for tha ufe of their Forces before this place. The King has been pleafed to declare the Baron Horn, our Go-vernour, Lieutenant General of his Forces in confide-ration of his great lervicej, in .the defence of this important place. Warftv, January 7. The King has received by fe-veral Eopreffes, the confirmation of the great Victory obtained by the King of. Svyden ovex the Mufcovitis before Nerva, which is like to alrerthe fcene of Affairs-Da this fide. The .Envoy of the Czar has had audience of his Majefty on that fubjeft, and has endeavoured to Ieflenthe Victory of the Swedes, andparfwade his Majefty, th?t the loft his mailer has fuffered on this occafiori is fo very inconfiderabJe, that he intends to return into Livonia in the beginning of the Spring, with a powerful Army. That Min'tlter has delivered an account of the relief of tTerva, wherein he owns, that the Swedes have forced rhe Intrenchments of rhe Mufcovites, and obliged them ro capitulate and retire; but, what he fays of the Jofsrhey have fuftained, is fo very improbable, that no body gives credit thereunto. An Exprefsform Mittau bringsadvice, that the Cojfocks in the Kings iervice, have made an Inroad into Liwmia, and commirred luch unheard of cruelties, that the King does highly refent the fame, and has lent orders to make a narrow enquiry thereinto, that the chief A&ors thereof may receive a punilhment liveable to their Barbarity. The fame Exprefs confirms, that the King of S�tdm is fhortly expefted fat Riga, and thereupon new orders are fent tofthe Saxon Troops, to hold themfelves in a readinefsto march. The troubles continue in Lithuania, and the Sen at us Confilium is to meet in few days, ro advife how to fupprefi the fame. There is a report, that the Confederated Nobility, and a party of the Troops of the Repubh'ck have had an encouuter, in which the latter have had the advantage, but this wants confirmation. 'Tis faid they ofier to reftore the Houle of Sapfeha to their Efhtc, but not to their publick Offices in that great Dutchy. Hamburg, January 18: They write from Hannover an d Zell, that the- Emperor has defired a confiderable number of Troops of thofe Princes, and true the E-le&or of Hannover is gone to confer with the Duke of Zell ibeu t the fame. They buy as many Horfes as they can-find in this Country, for the ufe of the Emperor; and we are told from Orefdm, that the Imperial Tro%ps quartered in Silejia and. Bohemia are moving towards the Country of Tirol. The EleQor of Brandenburg is ihortly expefted from Comingsberg, and we hear from Copenhagen, that a great Embafly is preparing there ro compliment the Court of Brandenburg, upon the Title of King of Pntflia, conferred on the Eleftor. Th4 Danes feem refolved to execute the Treaty of Traven-dahlK and money is brought hirher from Copenhagen to pay the 160000 Rixdollarspromi/ed to the Duke of Holjieinby the faid Treaty. They tell us from Copenhagen, that the French Ambaflador is very bufy in that Court, and would fain hinder them from taking any meafures with the Emperor in the ptefent juncture of affairs. Vienna, January 11. The Train of Artillery defigned for the Army which is to aft in Italy, under the command of Prince Eugene of Savoy, is got ready, and will be fenf, in few days to the Gpuntry of Tirol. Orders are lent to the Troops in Siiefia and Bohevfia, to begin their march, and in the mean time our Mi-nifters at Veldct and other parts of Italy, are endeavouring to draw rhe Italian Princes inco our Inrereft, by reprefenting unto them the manifeft danger their Liberties will be expofed ro by the Union of France-aniSpain. 'Tis'well known that the French has fe-veral times attempted to fubdue Italy, and that they had likely iucceeded. had not the Houfe of dujhfo proved a barrier to their ambitious defigns. An Exprefs is fent to Rome, with the Emperors anfwer to the Brief of the Pope mentioned in our former, wherein his Imperial Majefty returns thanks ro his Holiaefs for his offered Mediation, but in fuch general terms,- that he does neither accept not refufe it, and then commends his Fatherly zeal for the prefer-vatibn of the Peace of Europe ; alluring him, that his Imperial Majefty would be very glad to contribute towaads the fame, but that he could not forbear to relent the injuftice offered unto him in relation to the SuccelTion of Spain. Yefterday the States of the Lover Avpia met, and the Chancellour having made unto them a Speech fuitable to the occafion, the States returned an Anfwer full of Zealand Affe&ion for hislmperial Majefty. Ratisbonne, January 17. - The French Envoy has again offered the Guarantee of his Mafter to the Pro-teftant Princes, in relation to affairs of Religion, and allured them that his Mafter would procure an exact obfervation of the Treaty of Weftphalia, and the redrafting of all Grievances and innovations contrary thereunto', if the Proteftant Princes did apply themfelves unto his moft Chriltian Majefty ; but notwith-ftanding the many provocations the Proteftants have received from rhe perfecuting zeal of many Princes, 'tis thought they will not have recourfe to the French King, and have intimated to his Minifter, that they could noc have any confidence in his Mafter , nor defire him to concern himfelf in Affairs of Religion, till h� had reftored to the Proteftants the Churches they ware pofTeft of by virtue of the faid Treaty of ManJter, and of which they have been deprived, in violation of the fame. The Count of dijgrats^ Envoy of the Emperor, is arrived here from fiama, and we are allured that his Imperial Majefty will fhortly appoint a Comm iflioner to reprefent hi� perfon in the General Dyet of the Empire, before which the Emperor will lay rhe afiairs relating to the Succeffion of Spain, and fome other things of the higheft importance.
