Post Man (Newspaper) - October 7, 1801, London, Middlesex ),n '�udmv October 7,to 'CfttttCDa? October p, 170s. War} aw, 'Sepremb. 16. Ho Popes Nuntio went fnme days ago co Radziowiik ;tr the Kin *s roqueft, ro confer with the Cardinal Piimare, andper-fuade him ro write a l'ocond Letter ro the King ot'S�:a\u, and new Circular rs to the Palatinates o'c rhis Kingdom to acquaint r.v .tt wicii the prefenr poitur- of Atf.iirs, and cxaort !!i:in to take effectual meiluiii Co ilop the progrcfv ot rh� Swedes, who continue to iecure the chief T:>' 'tis in Coxshnd, and build Forts in leveral place.?, u- it i.'iey intended ro kesp rh-ir Country. The Cardinal ani'wered dieNuntio.truthe would write again ro hi> Swedijb Majefty, as ibon as he had cerrain ad-vice r;i .it roe Saxon Troops were returned home, for till t'...-.t time there was no likelihood of obtaining a iitibUctoiy anfwer from that Prince. As to the o-tlier point, that Prelate has e.xcufed himfelf from writing to the Palatinates, till they had returned an a..!\vsr to the Kings Circular Letters and his own. Several Dspuries are arrived here from the Pohjh Prufli*, to complain of the greac ravages committed in that Counrry by the Saxon Troops, who have exai'led contributions from fmall Towns, and threatned to plunder them, whereupon the King has publickly expiefled his diffarisfa&ion.of the conduct of Commiffary General Bozen,znd fentexprefs orders to his Troops to march into Sa::or,y by the way of Scheibujthmi Crojfen, and to keep fo fevers a difcipline that he may hear no more of their violences and exaction s. An Exprefs is arrive d here from Samegitia with advice that fome Swedijb Regiments have entered thatCoumry,andthat they demand no corjfibutinn.but pay ready money for their provisions and forrage. This advice purs the Court to new perplexities, and confirm the i'ulpicion they have,that theKing of Sweden has a great intereft in this Kingdom, and that there may be fome-fecret Negotiations on foot for ferting up a Competitor againft his Polifh_ Majefty. The aflurances given by the great Treasurer of Lithuania of the Houie of Sapieha, that the report fpread abroad of that family having accepted the Protection of the Swedes, have not been able to remove the jea-louiles of the King, becaufe they refufed to give a full power to the Deputies they are to fend to Grodno, where an aflembly is ro be held for endeavouring to reconcile the inteftineTroubles in Lithuania, The Palatinates are very flow in returning their anfwer to the King, for out of 31, there are but 4 or 5. who have allured theKing of their intentions of Handing by him againft all his enemies,and'tis not yec known whether the others will make the fame declaration. Notwithstanding theKing has written in very pre/fing terms to the Crown General to march with the Forces of the Rapablick to the Frontiers, w e do not hear that he makes any motions,which makes thei/M? is actually given out to the Officers, which Regiments are to be put into the fervice of the Emperor and the States General. We had nothing material this Poft from Italy ; but they write from Tyre!, that they are preparing quarters for 12000 men, which are expected in thole parts from Hungary and the Empire. The Danijb Troops that were inSaxevy are marching for ttucCoun-try with ail poffible iJeed, notwithftanding the l'ol-licitations of the Nuntio st yiemw, who has oppofed it with all his Intcreft.
