   Post Man (Newspaper) - November 27, 1801, London, Middlesex                                Numb. 906* QQQ.     f oft 0m: And the Hifforical Account, &c. From XftUtCDap November 27 ,to jfratfltftap Noveffroer 2 ?. * Brufels, November 19- Do not queftion but you are by this time ' informed of the match of the French 4 Troops into the City of Leige, anJ of the ' pretences of rhe Elector ofO/�g� for ad-4 mitring the fame into his places.  This ' perhaps has not furprized you, for the late con- 11 a^ j        ,-------r-------^ ' duel of that Prince left ao room to doubt, but he ' was entirely ingaged in the trench Intereft ; but ' cculd you have imagined, that his Ministers and ' thofcof France hadTo mean an opinion of the reft rof the World, as to preiumethat an impertinent * cranfmutation of name mighr palliate that Affair, ' and that the Neighbouring Princes ought to be ' left allarmedat thofe proceedings of his Electoral ' Highnels, becaufe he is pkafed to call the trench ' Forces, Auxiliary Troths of the Circle �/Burgundy. ' Whether the Frtnch King has acted a prudenc part ' in this Affair time will difcover, for his greaceft 'admirers muft confefs that the French Court has 'been fomettmes guilty of great overfights and ' mifhkes. In the mean rime many people, who ' move in a lower Sphere, ate of opinion, that this ' very ftep,fo much cry'd up,will prove advantageous ' to the Emperor, and nothing elfe was able to de-' reraiinethe EmpireagainftFrance. The majch of ' the Dittch Troops intothe Countries of Berguts and ' Juliers makes the French very aneafy, for they will ' find it very difficult to fubfift in the Sp�nift> Guelder-' land, becaufe the Dutch ftreighten them very much * on that fide-.T?he French were lb fenfible of it, thac 1 'tis confidently reported, that they defigned them-' felves to march into that Country, and leize Juliers, * had they not been prevented by the Dutch. Several ' Batallions arrive here from the French Conquefts to ' lupply the room of thofe that are marched into the ' Country of Leige.  Orders are likewife come from * Spain, to riife feveral Batallions in thefe Provinces, * but few Gentlemen have put in for Coromiffions, ' becaufe of the i'mall pay they are reduced to. The c States General having complained that the French ' were carrying their Lines and making a Fort too ' near theS*s van Ghe7tt,znd declared that unlefs thofe * works were flopped by a certain day, they would ' take effectual meafuresto prevent i r{Advice is come 'from thence, that the Dutch Qavernom feeing the ' time elapfed, has opened the Sluces and drowned ' the Country, and thereby effectually ftopt the ' wurks of the French. This is likely to be taken at ' an infraction of the Treaty of Peace, and as people "feemonly to.Xeek for a pretence, fhismaybea ' plaufible one, 'Tis.t impoflible to expreft the dif-' fatisfaflion of the Spaniards and ttartderkim in this ' Country, for the French ufe them with fo much ' haughtinefs, that 'tis a wonder how they can bear ' it. They have fupprelfed I don't know how many ' Offices, which wers chiifly poffefled by Spaniards, ' and they talk of fupprefling many others, and in ' fljort to model every thing according to what is * praftiled in trance. They muft talk no more of " Privifedges, the French tell them that that is a cane ' they do not understand, and.in (hort.the moft fen-" fifale part of the Inhabitants of thefe Provinces fear * that the report we ha �� had fome rime ago of a * Treaty,whereby the King of Spain made over thefe ' Provinces to Frame,was not altogether groundlefs ; 1 for the Revenue is altogether �anaged by French- * menjThe money is raited as fcbeirs; and theGoverrv-' meat of Fort if^bdla nejT Sluyce, is given to a ' French Officer. The Msgiftrates of Bruges have ' been perfwadad to farrerder the Keys of their * City to the Governoar,
