   Post Man (Newspaper) - August 7, 1801, London, Middlesex                                Numb. ;88 Ian: And the Hiftorical Account, &c. From ^ijuriMp Auguit 7, to >atatfcap Auguft 5>, 170 Brtifcli, Auguft, 1 j. "S^tle General Review of our Infantry is put olf to the loth inftant, and the fame is appointed m the Meadows of Lakne, near this City.   The Officers are oidered to have their Companies compleat by that tim? upon pain of being caftuer�d.   The French Tn-ops in thefe Provinces have made feveral motions, (ince the Conference which was held on Sunday laft at tfamur, between the Marefchals oCyilieroy and Boutflsrs, the Sieur de Puifegur and Come other French Generals; but what refoiutions they cook therein, 'tis not yet publicity known.  Some SpatiijhGeneral* teem difjufted at rhefe private Conferences of the French Commanders, and 'tis faid, th� Marquefs de Bedvtar bimieir", who went Two days ago to vilit the Maref-chal of Doufflertit Lonvain, could not altogether con. ceal his diilariifaction, that Monfieur Boujflirs fljould tell him noching of the meafures conceited at Numur, The Gentleman of the Horfe to Count de Avaux, who �was fsnt fome days ago to 'Parit, with the aniwer of theSutes Cieneral to the Memorial of that Minifter, went through this place on Tuesday morning in his way bac'; to the Hague, with the French Kings laft refolu-{ions.   HS reports, that the faid anfwei of the States Jus caufed no alterations in the meafures of theFrench Court, and tb-it Count d'Avtux is ordered to return bomi tviiho'it any further delay.   He adds further, ehac the French cannot hear with patience, that the Stated fliould infill on the fatisfa&ion pretended by lh.-i fe/npe�or, i rid that Count Ttrcy, Secretary of State for .Foreign Affairs, had publickly declared before ieveral Minifters,  that if the Sates had only debited fome fur that fecurify for themfelves, his moft Chrillian Mjjeft; out f .f his affeftion for them, might havebscn induced touls his intereft^with his Grand* Son to yield fomethim', unto them, for removing their fears and jcntoufies; but that the moft Chriftian King was not ufed to have Laws impofed upon him, at they have done in the prefent cafe.   This advice feems infallibly to foretel a War, tho the recalling of Coun t tfAvauz from Holland, is not breaking with the States.   The Duke of Btrvick arrived here yefter-day in the Afternoon, and was this Jay fplendidly entertained at Dinner by the Marquis of Bedmar,   The fubjea matter of his journey is not yet known, but 'tis faid he is to tarry but four or five days.  Notwithstanding we have been feveral times told from Parit, that the Duke of Burgundy was to come hither by the beginning of rhis month, we hear nothing of it at pre-fent.and'tis believed theKing has altered his refolution. Our Letters from Milan and Mantua by the ordinary Poft� repreiented the paiTage of the Mivcio as a -thing impracticable and fo dangerous,tJut it wai not believed, Chat the Imperial Generals would undertake if, yet Our tetters from Paris tell us, that they have advice from their Camp, that Prince Eugene of Savoy has palled that River without lo/ing one man, and was marching with all poflible diligence towards Milan. This news is like tocaufe a great confternation in Spain, and will prove a great incouragement to the Party of the Houfe of At~Jiri�, which according to eur laft advices from.Madrid, is not to be flighted.   They wonder h;re very much, that the Confederate Army ihouIJ 110c dare to fight the Germans-, being fo much fuperior in number, andPeopIe look upon it asacer* tain proof> that Monfieur Calinat does not rely upon the Spaniards,not the affeftion of the Inhabitants of the Milmeze : for to tell Us as they do,that he has fuffsr'd Prince Eugint to pafs the Mintio, on purpofe to draw him into a noofe, is filch nonfenfical fluff, that it cannot meet with any credit, but among the Mob at Paris. Hague, Auguft i*. The Foreign Minifiers reliding here are very bufie, and difpatch frequent Exprefles to their refpe&ive Matters. ThePublick knows nothing of thefe Negotiations, but there is a general difcourfe, that there is fome great matter in Agitation, which will break out 8> in a few days.Our Merchants do Co impatiently long for a War.thac the departure of Count^'^v
