Post Man (Newspaper) - June 5, 1801, London, Middlesex Numb. 845 LLL nd the Hiftorical Account, ere. From Xt)urC3ay June s, >.o &attttday June 7, 1701. but �f� fVarJav, May 19. Oft of the Deputies of the Palatinate? of the Republick are arrived here , the General Dyet being appointed to meec tomorrow. The Cardinal Primate.and' ___the Crown General are not yet dome, hourly expe&ed. The conduii of rhe latter is daily more and more fufpe&ed, by the Kings Minifies, for he h*s all along exprefTsd his difliking.* War With Sweden, and that the King fhould keep his Saxon Troops contrary to his former promifes ro the Dyer, held in the year 1699. In the mean time his Majefty reinforces his Saxons by ieveral deteaebments Under the notion of Recruics,-and as things �re difpofed we may truly ivy, that he has no inclination to fend rhem away. Count Straerman Envoy Extraordinary of the Emperor, has frequent audiences of his Majefty, wherein he endeavours to perfwad* him to make a Treaty wirh Sweden, for the Forces of his Matter being im ployed either on the Rhine, or in Italy, they will not be in a condicion to prevent the intended irruption of the- Swedes into Saxony, which will be like wife connivtd at by fome other Princes,who can* riot but take it ill.that hisMajefty mould rather give ear to the pernicious Counfels of (bme Incendiaries, than to their friendly and uninterefted advices. We hear ^tom Lithuania, that the Nobility continue in the fame rcfolution , not to agree to any accommodation  wirh the Houfe of Sajitha, till they are turned out of all publick'Offices in that Datchy, which much difofeafej the King, who relied very much on theaflulance of that Family fof the profecution of his defigm. Duke Ferdinand of Courland has refigned the place of General of the Artillery of the Saxtm, and is fuccced* ed by General Steynau. There is a difcourfe that an Envoy of Sveden is at rived here in privacy ,and will not appear till rhe meeting of rhe Dyet, ro whom he is fenc, about the prefent juncture of affairs. Fihma, June r. An Exprefs js arrived here from Ro* vtredo, with Letters from Prince Eugene of Savoy, giving an account, that he had narrowly viewed the difpoiltion of the French and Spanijb Army incamped about Rkitle near the River Adige; that notwithstanding he judged it was impoffible to beat them from their Poirs, yet he had made a fliew to arrack them, the better to conceal his defign of marching in-ro Italy another way. As the Imperial Troops were all on their march when the Exprefs came away, we hope the next Courrier will bring advice , that they have parted the Mountains, and are nurched towards Verona, to pafs the Riv�r Adige. Prince Eugene writes, that he will make all poffible hafte to ingage the French, before they are reinforced by the Troops of Savoy, fo that fhorcly we may expect to hear of an action. Prince Ragotzi and other Confpi-raCors are arrived at Neufiadt under a ftrong Guard, and they are kept fo clofe, that no body is admitted to fee them, upon pretence of Confeffion or otherwife. The Victuals that are given them are carefully examined, that rhey may receive no manner of intelligence .6001 rheir Correlpondents. An Exprefs from Warfata has brought advice, that the King of Poland confents to make Peace with the King of Sweden, upon the foot of the Treaty ot Olivet, provided the Czar of Mufetvy is included therein, and tharthe Swedetinfid vp'm no Preliminary fatisfaction for the damage they ba,e lufhined. The Emperor has fent thejeupon new lufhuftions to bis Minifters ro theKiog? of Sntdm and Poland, and they are in hopes here, that that Gnand affair wi) be at laft brought to an happy concluuon. DantxSck, June + Nocwithftandiag - ihe general inclination die Poles mew to conh'nue in r'eace Wirh Ststden, the King -of Poland carries on his preparation for a vigorous War in Livonui^in conjunction with the Czar; who has remitted to t&ttau the value of 180000 Rixdollars, if we may depend upon rhe accounts we have from thencs. A General 'Officer is gon� from Mfttau ro Mufcovyto conduct the Body of M*fcoviin who are ro joyn rhe Saxons,zn& befiege Hfga The tfaxozt have alfeady made fome preparwioni for that Enter -prize, but Rig* is fo well provided, and fhe Fortifications in fo good repair, that the  Swedes : feem to fear fioching for that. important place They write from Cmingsiurg that the Troops of the King of PtuJJi* arero form a Camp on their Frontiers, and that ins Prq/jian Majefty is refolved to have a full farifaftioa for the affair of Elbing. As the PoUs are-.unable to pay the lum due to his Majefty/tis thought this difference will produce a Treaty, whereby the; Poles fhall acknowledge the new Title of that Prince, which ieveral Palatinates except againft. The SleUr Ctmenburg Envoy Extraordinary to the Court of.Poland arrived here two days ago, in his way to Warsaw, to offer the mediation of his "Matters, the Scares General of the united Netherlands, and aft in conjunction with the Imperial Envoy. By feveral Ships arrived bete, we have ad�ice that the S�<diQ) Frigots continue co cruife on the Coaftof Ctwrland. Letters rom Riga lay.that th� King of Sweden was fliOTtly expected thereto view rhe Fortifications of that place, and that in the mean time his Army , was affembling for marching toward s Pie/con*. Hague, June 14.. The States being informed� that the French Troops in the Sfavifh Netherlands will begin to morrow ro incamp, and that their Pioneers are ordered for the Frontiers, our Troops have likewife received orders to Cantoon, in order to their fpeedy incamping. The Camp, which is to be formed about derguenopzMm, will confut of 18 Batallions and 29 Squadrons, and is to be commanded in chief by Prince Najfau Saarbruck as General, having under him the Earl of Albemarle, General of the Svitttert, MonAeurOMmi Lieutenant General of the Horfe, antf Count NoytOet, and Monlieur Salifb, Lieutenant Generals of the Foot. The Camp, which is to be formed in Geldtrland, under the Command of the Earl of Athltne, is much more confiderable, that Country being more expofed to the French. That Army is to be fo polled, as to be a-ble to joyn in cafe of need with thiBrandenburghtrs and the Palatine Troops, who being thui joyned, will make an Army of near 8 0000 men. The recruits and new Levies of the States are almoft compleated, fo that'tis computed, that they have already 95000 men, ?elides the Succours expected from England, the Dmtts, and a body of Saxons. The Proprietors of the Country that has been drowned, are to receive, the yearly rent thereof from the States. The return of the Exprefs that Count J* Avtuu fenr to his Mailer, after the Conference he had with the Penftonary, as mentioned in our former, is impatiently expected, tho the moft fenfible part of Mankind are. perfwaded, that the French t�7e only fought to gain time, till the breaking up of the Parliament of England, and that they never deflgn'd to agree to any reafonable thing that fhould be propofed on the part of their Neighbours for their common fecuritv.
