   Post Man (Newspaper) - March 11, 1801, London, Middlesex                                mm And the Hiftorical Account, e?r. F/om XUCCOtt? March i s, to Xfttttfda? Marc h 13, 1701, Mtp/i'r, February ly. Everal French OiTic^rs an.i Ingineers ate arrived here co vine our Pl�ce^. .md ice what further Fortifiojricms are neccifiiy for the fecu-) rify-of this Kingdom.   Seve-al Lxprdfe1; jre lately arrived from Madrid, Rome and Milan, with ad'/ic^, that the Germans are refoived to march info /w/y, and Therefore out Viceroy is required to ufe all poilibJa diligence for remitting unto the Prince of faudemont, a Supply of Money , 'and fending to Final a great quantity of Ammunition.  The Militia or this Kingdom is formed into feveral Batallions, making in all 25009 meo.and experienced Officer* are appointed to exercife and difcipline the lame, that they may be ferviceable when occafion ffaall require. Some Letters from Rome fay, that the Pope is refolved to refufe the Inveftiture 0f this Kingdom, and Sicily, to the new King of Spain, and pretends that the difpofal of them, made by the late King, is void, and a manifeir violation of the Rights of the Church ; from which fome. conclude, that the Court of Rstne is undei-hand fomenting the difputes about the Succeffion of Spain, in hopes that the fame will afford forne favourable juncture, for chem to ieize theie two Kingdoms; and ke,ep them for themfelves. Hague, March 18. A Prifoner of State was fome days ago brought hither from Sluice inlanders, but we do not yet hear his I\.;mei ^ot the Crime he is accu-fed of, and he is kef t very clofe. The Duke of Wlr. temberg is giving all decenary orders for the t fecuriry of that place, and they are er e�ting a new Fort, the better to cover the fame. The Count d' Avaux has fome private Conferences with the Penfipnary of Holland, and expe�fcs the arrival of an Exprefs he has fent to the French Court for new Inftru&ions ; bardie Conferences are not li'ke to begin till our Troops are got fafe into Matfirlecht. Several of our Souldiers who had run away from rheir Colours ili the Spanijh Garri-fons, and had taken Money from the French, have already deferted the French Service, and'are come back into this Country, having in return to the kindnefs of the French, feduced away a world of their own Souldiers. Several Merchants of Antvtif, who expe�t to be ufed juft as the Subjc&s of France, have thought fit to remit 6 Millions of Florins to the Bank of Amjlcr~ dnm, and are endeavouring to withdraw their Effe&, and rerire info this Country. Our Naval preparations are in fuch a forwardnefs, that'll* laid our Ships will fpeedily Sail ro rheir Rendezvous, which is towards Zealand, for covering that Province. By an Expreis from Vimn* we have advice, that our Minifter having defired the Emperor ro.hold in readinefs thefuccours he fs obliged to fend to our affiftance, in cafe we are attacked by the French, his Imperial Mijefty anfwer-ed, that their High Mightinefles might rely u^on the, fame, and alfure themfelves, that belides the number of Troops he is obliged to by the Treaties of Alliance, he will fend in cafe of need, a good Army ro our affilTance. The Troops of Brandenburg continue to arrive in the Durchy of Clev;t, but thole of the Houfe sf Lunmburg, ioco men excepted, continue in their quarters. The States are fending Monfteur HarfoUe of. Cranenburgh to the Court of Poland, to endeavour to re-�ftore Peace in Livonia. Park, Marco 19. An Exprefs from Count*" Jvaux our Ambaflador Extraordinary  to the Hague, has brought the Anfwtr delivered by ,t{re States to the laft Memorial of that Minifter, and likswifc an ac- count of the poftureof affairs in that Country. The Ambairador'writes, that the Dutch are not tatisfied wirh his laft Mewonal, and that inftead of flopping tlieir preparations, as he inlinuaied tbey Ought ro du, they hive redoubled the fame, and ui'e all imaginable diligence for putting themfelves in a poftuie of defence. Tjifs and ail the advices which the King receives from mod of the Courts of Europe, together with rne irrelbJntion of the Pope ,. nuke the Court fenlible; that anew War leems unavoidable ; and that tbey are of that opinion, no body can quefiion now} after the Preamble to the Edift given the nth inftant at VerjailUs^ for laying a general Cavitation over Kingdom ; wherein the King expreiles himfelf to this effect, That being obliged to maintain a new War, and his Revenues being not fuificient to bear tt^e chaiges thereof, his Majefty has thought fit to lay a Capitation upon his Subjects, as the Itaft heavy Tax, promifing, that 6 months after the Peace fhall be concluded, the fame fhall be fupprefTed. The Clergy are free from the fame, his Majefly hoping, that they will prefent him with a free gift, fuirable to his occa-ilons. This is as much as proclaiming War, and this Tax is the firft advantage our Nation receives from the acceflion of the Duke of Anjou to the Throne of Spain. The Officers are ordered to their refpeftive Commands with all fpeed ; and we hear the King will" certaiiily go to BruJJelt in the beginning of May, unleis the Negotiations at the Hague have a better (ucceis, thin is generally believed. An Exprefs is few to Cphnt<^ Jvaux, with the laft Intentions of his Ma-jefry, and that'tis laid, that Minifter bordered ro declare to the States, that if they do not think fir ro acceptthe terms offered them, they are to expeel ins higheft refentifaent of his Majeftles di/plttfure. The Court being informed, that a Letter written by the Earl of Mtijbrd, to his Brother the Earl oittrth, Govcr-vetnour of the pretended Ptincs cf U'alei, has been intercepted and publifhed in England, they I'ave thought fit to banifli him to Angers, wherein he is trf be a Prifoner at large in the Town, for having pic-'fumed to intrude into State Affairs, a,i4 flius* imprudently discovered fome Intreagues, which are fo dif-agreeable to the Fourth Article of the Treaty of ReJ-wick, between tji is Crown and England. They de-iigned at firft to give out, that that Letter was fuppo-litious; but the truth thereof is fo unquestionable, that it has been thought more fitting ro punijffi rhat Lord, than aflerta notoiions falfhood. The CouitpfSf Germain has been far feveral days in giear alarms, tte late Kingjauies having had two fits of an Apoplexy. As it is not very eafy to have a true account of his condition , we have no other particulars thereof, bi_C that he is ft ill ill. The Marefchal of Catinat tookfirice our laft his leave of the King, being to fet out on Monday or Tuifday next for Milan , to command the French and Sfanijb' Army under the Duke of SaHoy. He had � very long Conference with his Majefly on the affairs of half; ftom whence rhey write, that the lmperialifts are in motion en the Frontiers cf Tirtil. This is Confirmed by Letters from Viemi*\% but our Troops are in fuch a readinefs, that out Horli and Dragoons will arrive in the blilanefe, before the Germans are in a condition to fet their Foot in Italy*. They write from Madrid, that the Cardinal Purtecarrere and Den Manuel Arias, Preli-dent of the Council otC*f}ile, are the'chief and only Minifters of State, which has created great jenlouiier amongft the Grandees ; feveral of them thinking tV have as well defetved the favour of their flew Ririjj
