Post Man (Newspaper) - March 20, 1801, London, Middlesex jr. > > Numb. H H II. f^e pat And die Hifloricai Account, &c. "From %t)llllM? March 20, to ^atUtdap March 22, lltmburih, March 2i. Ur Letters from Sweden tell us, that all things are preparing dure for rtanlport-ing into Livonia lev eta I Regiments, and ths nece/fary recruits for the Regiments that ars there, as foon is the Bakick Sea is practicable. Mr Robinfon, Rsftdent of England at Stotkholm, \s preparing to attend the "King of Sweden in-ro Livonia and this m.ikes the World belUve, that a Negotiation is to be let on foot in thole parts, for adjufting the differences between Poland, Mufcovy and Sweden, by the Mediation of England and Holland, and that Mr Rvbinfm, and the Sieur Cranenburgh are appointed for that Negotiation. Out Letters from teli ti',, that that City is now in fo good a poilure of defence, that they feem not in the leaft concerned, for hat the Saxotisaa do the next Summer. Thole Liters add, that the King of Sweden having iignined to the Count Guifcard, Ambaflador of France, that his Majefty did notthinkfit, that any Ambaflador fhould conftantly follow him; that Minitler has delired, that he may have the Honour to attend him as a Volun^ teer, and really has no other Charafter at Court. They write from Mittau, that the Czar of Mufcovy boa/Is of bringing fuch an Army into the Field, that the Swedes will not be able to look them in the face j but lince their defeat before Nerva, the Swedes feem to value very little their threats. The Duke of Holfiem Gottorp, is going in few days for Pomeranis to review the Swedifb Troops, and 'tis faid that as foon as the Forces vofBrandenbnrg, and the 7500 Danes in Saxony arej march'd from their quarters, a draught of about ioooo Men out of the swedijh Troops in Germany will be fent into Livonia. They wtice from Revet, that Provifions begin to b.e very fcarce in that Country, and that the Swedes ate Negotiating at DantxJci. a fop-ply, of Corn, but it feems they want money, which fcarcity being general in the North, would fbon produce a Peace in Livonia, if the French did not think it their intereft to keep Op and foment that quarrel. Pins, March a6". An Expreft From Brufels has brought advice, that the EleSor of Bavaria fet out from thence on Tuefday laft for Germany, leaving the Government of the Spanijk Provinces to the Marquis de Bedmar, General pf Arms, 'iis faid, that Prince is very much difgufted, becaufe fince the late King of Spain's death, he has had but the name of Go-vernouf. The Sieur de Pttiffegar, and the Marquis de hedrnar, having had the chief management of Affairs. The Bavarian Troops in tfee Spauijb fervice are dif-fnifled, without having received their arrears, which is a fufficient indication, that his Electoral Higbneis, is not to return into the Netherlands in his former quality. That Prince'defired leave of the moil Chrifrian King to go for Manhh, upon pretence pf fome Dorae-ftick affairs, and his requelt was readily granted. The King recieves frequent ExpreiTes from Madrid, but their difpacches are kept very private. There is a report, that the King of Portugal has declared for the jhew King of Spain, and that he is to afllft his Catholick Majefty with loooo men and 15 Men of War, but this is not credited at all. The demands of the En-glifh and Dutch will doubtlefs furniih great matter f fpekutorion to our Politicians, buttho it is general- ly reported, that their Proposals are for the mo'ft pai� rejected, that wants confirmation ; and'tis not likely that the King will abfolutely declare his mind there" upon, without having firfr acquainted the King and Council of Spain with the fame, and we hear.an Ex-' prefs was fent to Madrid this morning with difpatches, relating, as 'tis thought, to that fabjeft. Notwith- . /landing Prince Vaudimont, Governour of the Milanese, has hitherto acted withfo much zeal, as to leave no room to queftion his fidelity ; they tell us again, that he is to be fhortly removed from that Government* and ibmefay, that the Duk? of Savoy is promifed the fame. Our Minifters are very bufy in Germany^ ands. would fain improve the difputes about the Ninth E-le&orate to an open rupture. The King is not fatisr fied with the long filence of the Court of Row*,- which, norwithlrandinjj our follicitarions, feem refolved tc� Hand Neuter in this affair. They are not neipher; allured, that the Republick of. Venice will refiife paffage to the Imperialifts, for the new Levies thejr make are rather defigned for their own fecuintyj thaa; for oppofing any of the parties. . Fravckfdrt, March ao. The Fr. Troops VKff grovr V&tf numerous in Al[*ce, and they tell us from Strasburgh^ that if the Circles of Sioabia and Tranecma do not Hand Neuter in the Affairs of Spain, the French King will, fend two powerful Armies on this fide the Rhine, to ravage their Country. In the mean time out Letters from Vienna fay, that the Emperor intends to fend fuch Forces into thefe parts, that if it be fo, vtis likely the French will fiand on the defenfive.inflesdof palling the Rhine. The Swiizers are very much prefled both by the Emperor and the French, and their next Ger neral Dyet is impatiently expe&edy to know whether they will efpoufe any parry, or ftand Neuter, according to their old Maxim. The new Levies for the 3 Regiments the Princes of jinfpag are raifing for the States of Holland, are carried on with good fuccefs, and 'tis faid the Landgrave of Heffe Cajfel fends a b�.-dy of his Troops to the affiftance of that RepuhKck, The Three Ecclefiaftical EU&ors feem to incline to a Neutrality, and they are fblliciring at Vienna and Paris., to obtain the fame. The Imperial Regiments which went fome days ago by Donawerth, are arrived on the Frontiers of Brifctw, and < re to be followed by. feveral others. The French have bought a world 0$ Horfes in this Country- Seme Letters from Batf! confirm, that the Duke of Savvy has declared for Frame and Spain, and that he is to joyn his Troops with thofe of Mftan. London, March 22. Our Port Letters yefterday from Falmouth fay, that the Rope of London W3S arrived there from Bourieanx, the St John of Amtlerdam frorrj Bourdeaux, bound home, and the John and Margaret fiQmBourdeaux, and bound for Rotterdam.
