Post Man (Newspaper) - March 15, 1801, London, Middlesex S u And the Hiftorical Aecoaftt ' &c. From �$atUtDap March 15, to Xuefday iMarc h i 8, 170$. Row.". March 5. H E Pope has held two Congrcgsrions of Srate within thU week, butrfcey hayeta-kt-n no reiorurioii on die Invdiiture o� Nafkt and Sicily,Aehxei by the new King: t>f iy*V*nd the Enafptror, and 'tis the generaj opinion of 'people, that this Court trill not; declare their mind, till they fee who of the two preri tenders is the'moft likely to alfert his pretentions ort the %m/Jfc States in Italy. .They have begun here tcv keep the Jubilee, and male: the extraordinary Prayers' the Pope has ordered to be made, for deprecating the-niisforrunes^�nye,and Italy in particular are threatened with, and we fee nothing but Proceflions from Church to Church. There is a report that the Arm of St Nicholas of Totentino bleeds in an unufual manner, which eucreafes the alarms- of the people, looking upon that prodigy is the fore-runner of a great and bloody' War. The Ambaffador of Vnice has f re�raeni Conferences with our Minifters of State, on the motions of the Germans in lyrol, and the arrival of the French in the Milaneje; and the Envoy of the Duke of Mantua hai had audience of the Pope on the fame iubjetr, to defite his Holinefs to put a Garrilbrgtyf 4000 men into Mantua, telling him, that thar nnjfcrr. tant- place being unprovided; fe like- an Inn whichthe firlt comer will take'poileflion of. The ne^ Levies! for the Pope are carried on with good faccaG,, but its will be a long time before they can bedifcipimedjarii fa exercifed, as to befit for ftrvjee. Turin,- March n: ^Letters ftpmtaV fay, thtt-our Duke is to command the French and Spiniih Army ixi the MiJaneze, and fhat in coiifideration- rhegiaafp thf French King is to give him a fubfidy oi^ocQoCtowris a month, butrhey do not fpeafc'aword of ic here, and they would peifwade us thaE his Royal Highnefs will ftand Neuter between the Emperor and France. In the mean time the arrival of a Courrier in a, mask, who immediately after his arrival Was admitted-to audience of our Duke, and went away as foon as his conference was over r gives birth to many corrje-ftures; but this is a myitery which time alone can unfold. We hear orders are given for forming a 'Camp of our own Forces about Fercelli, on the Frontiers of the Milanese, and they take a Lift of all the young men above 18 years of age, who are fir to carry Arms, that we may exaftly know what nufflber-of men we may rely upon in cafe of need. They write from G�n��,that leveral Veilels are arrived there from France, with Troop* on board, and that the French Army in the Milrtttz* will confift of afiooo Foot and 6coo Horfe, which, together with the Troops of the State of that Dutchy , will make an Army of 44000 men, befides the ufual Garrifons. The party of the Empeior feems to revive in Milan, Hnce the arrival of the French, for their haughty and fcomful way creatss them many Enemies, and confequemly as many Friends to the Lmperor, That alteration doesVilibly appear by the frequent Pafquinadoes that are polled up in the Pub-lick places of that City,aiTerting the Rights of rheEm-peror over thatDutchy and-the who!eS^j�//ljSucceiTion. The Clergy continue Jikewife their intrigues in favour of that Prince, nottfithfranding the fevere pu-nilhments they have been threatened with, which dif-petitions in the People and Clergy, feem to foretel a Civil War in the Afflanefe, if ihs Empsror can getthe fcafr footing therein. Vienna, Maich U. Prince Eugene of Savoy intends to fet out iaiels than 3 weeks for Rovereda^ to take, upon htm the Command of the Imperial Arrfiy cit-^ figned for Italy; and in the mean time Count Htrber-fi.^m, and fome.other General Officers are gone the lame way.
