Post Man (Newspaper) - September 4, 1801, London, Middlesex Rome, Auguft 13. p^" m-^li E Imperial, French and S^in'flt Mi.: I Hers H continue their Intrigues at th's Com r, hue B arv. nt�t like to obtain a.iy ^iWik 4:1 Aver � to tlieir Propofals, rill one of tne pjrra->' .JBL has got the better in the Milanezs. "I he Pope has very much appro, ed rhe coududr. of the Ma-giftrates in the Kin^jom of bfjplet, who have iigni-iiiJ to the Viceroy, chat they coulJ not in coiifci-eace take the Oath of Fidelity to the King o?ip.<nn, till he had received the Inveilirure from the Holy SV^. The Spanijb Am ballad or has thereupon redoubled his inftaaces to his Holinefs for granting the fame, buc trie Pope has anAvered, tl)3t this being the nicefl ca!e that ever concerned iiis Church, he had appointed an extraordinary Congregation to consider of if, and thjt he was refoiveJ to make no (lep in due affair, till they were come to fornc refolution. That Congregation meets now and then only for form fake, for after aH nothing but theiucceft of the War, can decide the controverfy. The Popehjs appointed another Congregation of Cardinals', who are not Partisans of the Emperor, France and Spain, to confidet of the mcfr proper means for preferving It sly from a rota! ruin, bat we don't kno;v what rsfolurions they have taken ; and mofr people are of opinion, that the Neutrality of the Pope, the Venetians, and other Princes A the wor.1 expcJien: that could ever be taken; and ihuz Italy is undone, urvlels the Italian Princes joynuiru one of the parries, to drive the other beyond the Ahs, and thereby put afpeedy end to this farai War, which muft needs fpread it ij If next Summer further than the Milar.cze. The Venetians feeia very weary of the long continuance of the German; in their Territories, whereas they had only at firfl deiired p:fAge through the fame, buc their complaints accjuoc are little taken notice of by a conquerable Army, and not very much regarded by the Imperial Courr, who excufe things of this nature, upon account of an indifpenfable ne-cefiity. The RepubHck feems afraid, that the Germans will by the fame reafon take Winter quarters in their Dominions, and this feems now the greatcir point in agitation. Italy is fo much concerned inthedifpute about the Spanish Succeilion, that almoft every body rakes pare therein, according to private intereft or inclination. This caufes a great divifton, and has interrupted the friendship that has fo long continued between Pafqmn and Marforio. The latter has declared for the French, and the former is an indefatigable AfTerter of che Rights of the Houfe of Auftna. Some few Perfons , who have Honour enough to be Neuter in this affair, have endeavoured to reconcile thole two Friends, and to perfv/ade them , that they mould remember that they are Romans, and not Germans, French or Spaniards, and their kindly Offices have proved fo effectual, thai they begin to fpeak the fame Language. The Legates ofMwia and Ferrara have fent ExprefTes to acquaint the Pope, that there is a contagious diftemper in Mantua, and that they had refblvedro forbid any communication wirn rhatCity ; but chat they had received Letters from the Duke of Mantua, that that diftemper was only occafioned by_ the Sick and Wounded Frerfch Soldiers in the Hofpi-" tals, who were to be forthwith removed.
