   Post Man (Newspaper) - February 27, 1801, London, Middlesex                                Numb, 87i       H H     x And tlie Hiftorkal Account, &e. From %ty\X(Dap February 27, to �>amrt*ap March *3170*. Celsgn, March t. Otjr Ele�tor returned fome days ago td Boa from the Netherlands, and we hear they fit up there an Apartment for the EleSor of Banana, who is fhoitly ex-pe&ed in thefe parts, in his way to Munich. The French Envoy has again offered to our Magiftrates fome Troops ef his Mailer, but they have recurned him hearty tbanks for his offers, and if we take any Troops, 'tis laid it will be part of thofe Bavarians who have been in the Spanijb Service. General Schlick, Envoy of the Emperor, having finilhed his Negotiations in the Court Palatine, let eut on Tutfday la ft for Holland, and 'tis faid he is to go to Brttjfels to confer with the Eleftor of Bavaria. The Elector Palatine has forbid upon fevere penalties, \zo fend any Horfes out of his Country, and carries on his new Levies with all imaginable diligence. The Spaniards are cutting down Pallifadoes in Gueldcrland, and there is a difcourfe that they ate going to fortify feveral places in that Country. They write from Vienna, that the Imperial Troops in Silejia are on their march for the Tyrol, and that the General Officers who are to Command the Army 'm.Italy, are preparing their E-quipage. with all imaginable fpeed. Hague, March 4. Some Letters from Flanders tell us, that the firft Batallion of the Dutch Troops in Luxemburg, was to march oat on Monday latr, and they tvrite from thence, that the Sfanifh and French Officers of that Garrifon, had magnificently entertained ours, �who were preparing to do the like, and return them their kindnefs. The Count � Avaux, Ambaflador of France, is to give a third Memorial to the States, upon the new Inflruitions he has received from Paris. That Minuter has complained that Drums are perpetually beating near or before bis Houfe for new Levies, which is very troublefbme to him, whereupon the Magiltrates have forbidden to continue to do fo, that the repofe of his Excellency may not be diihirb-ed- Befides the new Levies we are making, and the great number of Troops we are taking into our fer-vice, the States have ordered that all the Boors Ihall be armed, and alio all the Burghers of Towns, who are ordered to give in their names to the Magiftrates. They fit out our Fleet with all imaginable expedition, and in the mean time feveral Frigots are fent to convenient places, with flat'Ships tobe made ufe of for floating Batteriss.for fecuring the mouths of theRi-Vers and the Harbours. Our Troops continue to file towards Berg'ienopzoom, and other Frontiers, and the Regiments quartered in Gmninguen and Fr'tezland are {hipping off for Gtlderland. They write from Cleves, that orders are come into that Country from Prujfia, to make Magazines, and provide Quarters for joooo men, who begin to arrive in thofe parts. The Bifliop of Siunfter railes lome Regiments for the fervice of the Emperor, and we hear the Landgrave of Htffe 'Cajfrf does the Wee. Our Letters from Brufils fay, that the Elector of Bavaria is preparing to return into Germany, and they tell us, that his Electoral HighnefJ lays down the Government of the Spanifli Netherlands, and that his Troops, which are all at prcfent in Gtlderland, will'be likewife difiniffed from^rhe Spanijh fervice. The price of Provifions is confi.ierably raifed in the Spanijb Country, not only becaufe of the gr�ac numbefof Troops that are arrived there, but alio be- "'caufe they make Magazines in feveral places. The Spaniard? complain very much of the Governour of Lilh, who, as they fay , has upon a panicle fear drowned the Country and done them a j*reat' deal of damage, but the States approve his Cor.duct, and th� Spanijh Ambaffidor has been told, thatthey could not but wonder here, that he fliould blame the Governour for taking a reafonable precaution, feeing that they themfelves without any reafon in the world,crowded Antwerp and other Frontiers w ltb Foreign Treops. The Inhabitants of Ghent ire very much affraid that the-Governcur of theSas Van Ghent will follow the example of that of Lilh, and when he does fo, they muft think of leaving their Houfes for fear of being drowned therein. Paris, March 5. They write from Thoultn, tha^ it Men cf War that have been fitted out in that Harbour, are failed from thence for Brtfi, to joyn the Fleet de~ figned to aft in the Ocean, which is in fo great a foi* wardnefi, that 'tis faid, we may put to Sea in a very' few days in cafe of need. ,The Recognition of the King of Spain, by the States of Holland, is not [alto* gether fatisfaftory to this Court, who begin now to fay, that the King is refolved to try the fortune of a-nother War, if the Emperor and the other Princes of Europe talk of any difmembring of the Spanijb Monarchy. The Commiffions for raifing new Levies are given out, and the Officers have received the neceflary lumms to go on with the fame. They write from Rome, that the Imperial Ambaffador has quartered the Afms of Spain with thofe of Aujlria, which Novelty is highly relented by the French and Spaniards that are there. The Pope has returned an anfwer to a Letter the new King of Spain writ to him from Bourdeaux^ but we hear, he does not give him any direct anfwer, concerning the Inveftiture of Naples and Sicily. That Prince has been received wirlf great acclamations of joy at Madrid ; but we have no account as yet, that he has made his publick entry info that City, becaufe they make extraordinary preparations for the fame. His Majeflylies in the Palace of Butn Retiro, which is every day crowded with People of all ranks, to fee their new Prince. The Duke of Burgundy and the Duhs of Berry continue their progrefs, and have been received at Ihouloufe with all pcflible demonftrarions of Joy. The Deputies of the Iahabitinrs of if Mulo are frill here about the propofals they have made of fitting cut 20 Privateers of good force, to joyn the King* Fleet upon occafion, and 'tis believed their demands will be granted. The Chevalier Bacrt has been- ordered to view the Harbours of Neizpgrt md Ojiend, and fend an account thereof to the King, who is refolved to repair and inlarge the fame. They look upon thofe two places tobe of a very great confequence in cafe of a rupture with England and Holland ; and therefore 'fis faid a Squadron under the Command of the Si';ur de Fonti is ordered for Ojhnd with ail poflibl* fpeed.
