   Post Man (Newspaper) - November 29, 1801, London, Middlesex                                Numb. 907 RRR And the Hiftorical Account, &c. From g>attttfrap November 19, to Xttgfoap December 2,, 170i., Madrid, November 17. C, Uf laft Letters from Bareelsna give an ^ account of the great rejoycings made B in that place, upon account or the M Kings marriage. His Majefty is to *r fet out from thence this day, intending tojreturn liifher by the way of Tarazona, where the States of Arragm are to meet, and is expected here by- the middle of the next month. The Duke oiVeraguat, late Viceroy of Sicily, is arrived here, and his taken his place of Councellor of State, be-frow'd upon him by tfre late King Charles. We hear that [the Dukepf Medina Cell is recalled ftom ples, and chat Cardinal Portocarrero has recommended the CovntMmtetey to fccceed him,in order to remove him from the Council here, becaufe that Lord and his Eminence cannot agree together. Our Letters from Malaga fay, rhar Count de Eftreei went by that Port on the 8th inftant, with the Squadron or Men of War, under his command, being bound to Naples with a reinforcement of 1J00 Foot, defigned for that Kingdom,, who have been fhipp'd off at Cadiz ; from whence they write that Count Gh*~ teaurenaud was ready to put to Sea with 30 Men of War to meet our Gallions, or (ail for the We$ India, to obferve the Englifn ind Dutch Squadrons in thofe parts: Our Letters from Lisbome fay, that there appears a great alteration in that Court fince the Alliance between the Emperor, England and Holland has been notified to his Ptrtuguefe Majc-If y, and that they are informed of the ill condition of our affairs in Italy. They begin to talk now o-penly, that that Crown will (land Neuter in the approaching War, and not joyn with as and France, as it was expected, which makes this Court very un-eafy. The laft advices from Cadiz fay, that the Englifh and Dutch Merchants fettled there were im-barking their effects, intending to return home, which will prove a great prejudice to that place. The Marquefi oftc^avez, Vicar General ofcheCoaft of Andahptt, Las delired leave to reftgn. his Imploy* ments, becaufe of fome differences he had with the French Admirals, which were not decided to Jiis facisfaction. There is a report, that the Queen Dowager is to remo vefrom Toledo to Paris, tbcFrench King having wrirten to her Majefty to that purpofe. The Council ct State having examined the Project "brought hitherfroni Pari), for laying a genera lCa-ptution upon tnis Kingdom, and taken, into confide* ration the mahy difficulties wherewith that Tax is like fo be attended, have, as 'tis faid,. made a repre-fentation againft ir, and 'tis thought that it will be laid afids for this year, and that in the mean tinie the King will ask a free gift from the feveral ^Provinces of this Monarchy, which will bring very near as much Money as a Capitation, and will not caiufe'fuch muimurings amjongft the People, as the odiouslname of Taxes, mud needs create. Dantzitk, November zj. Our laft advices from Csurland fay, that the King of Suede* is marching tvith his Army info Lithuania, the better to protect the tipufe tif Sapieha, and encourage a party he has in Pttand. The Provincial Dyets in the P'lilb Prufia and fome other parts of P*landt are broke up in great confufion, which makes us fear, that the General Oyer is like to be very Tumultuous, whereby the Republish muft needs fall into unlpeakable di-Itrattions. The private animofities jn Lithuania incrcaJe every day, and the Sapieha\ being incoura-ed by tlie Neighbou'rhodi-of the Swrfii, we refolved not to fubmit to the ignominious conditions the Confederated Nobility would impofe upon ibcai. There has already happened a rencounter between^ a party of Swedijb Horfe of 50 men, quartered in the Lands of Prince Safieha, and a Detachment of 200 men of the Ncbility, wherein the latter were put to flight. They writs from Liber, that on , the 14th inftant 3000 Foot arrived there from Sweden, and that tbey expected as many in few days, with aooo Horfe at Wrndau, which will enable the Kjng of Sweden to overrun Lithuania when he plesfes , there being no fortified places to flop him, nor any regulated Troops to make bead againft him ; for tho the Confederated Nobility car) bring a good body c*men together, they have neither Experience, Difcipline, nor,good- Generals to command them. 'Tis faid that MonAeur Cramn-burg Envoy of the States. General has had audience of Leave of the King of Sweden, and is returning to Warfav, but what fnccefs he has had in his Negotiations time willrdifcover. Paris, Decern. 7. An Exprefs from Liege has brought advice of the feizing and carrying away Prifoners into the Caftle of Hamtr, the Baron de Mean Dean of the Chapter of Leige and his Brother, who is alfo one of the Canons of that illuftiious Body. This was done by order of tbe Eleftor of Cckgn, who was informed that the Chapter of Leigt* by the-Inftigatiou of their Dean, who is altogether devoted to the Enemies of France tad Spain, had written to the Goveraours offiovand fome other places not to admit any Foreign Troops into thofe placet.Thefe unexpected proceedings of his Electoral Highnefs will keep in awe jphe Chapter of C�/�,g*>, and convince them that they muft not quarrel with a Prince who is fure of fo powerful an affiftance as that of the molt Chriftjan King. Our laft advices from Italy fay, that the Danljh Troops in the fervice of the Emper�r with 2 Imperial Regiments arearriv'd in the Kcentin on the other fide of the Adigt, but that tfaeyare fb weakened that they hardly make ycoo men tnftead o&iofro. They are tp joyn wirh all fpeed Prince Exigent of Savoy, who defigns to befiege Gotta on the Mineio. That Prince having decamped the lyth ultim marched toOfiiano in the Mavtuan, and they feem|o have a defign upon Bejulo. The Mar-quefs of Criqui is Polled at Cane to to obferve their motions, and fecure Bozolo, which is n�w of that confequence, that the taking thereof would cut off our Communication with Mantua. The Germans intend to make a Line from Cafiigliane delle Stivere to Cajlel Guiffre for the better fecurity of their quarters. Prince Vaudtmmt Commands the! Troops quartered about Pizighitone, Monfieur Pllleroj about Cremona, and Monfieur e'e ReveJ about St Ambrsfio near Bozolo. A Body of Troops confining of molt of the Gendarmerie and Carabineers,, with three Regiments Horfe, 2pf Dragoons, and itf.Batallions are ordered with all fpeed for Italy. An adviccboat fent by the Matjuefs of C/etJegop js arrived at Roehel with an account, that the Spanifh Plate Fleet under his Convoy isfail'dfrom the ..Havana, and' fo we hourly expect to hear of their fafe arrival at Cadiz. The extraordinary Funds, for the charges of the next year are already fettled, jiid befides the ordinary revenues amount to one hundred and one million of Livers, including \hmillions for the capitation, and 1 y. which the King will get by ttis railing of our Coyn. But there will be great deficiencies in thefe Funds. Hague, Decern. 6. Our Letters from U'ge fay.thac on the ift inftant a!! tb�French Troops in rha: Giry
