   Post Man (Newspaper) - December 4, 1801, London, Middlesex                                'fiefs'' r- 5 Kutiib. 90S* mi And the Hiflorical Account, From XfttttC&ap December 4, to ^aturtap December 6, 1701. T Cohgn, Decemb. 6. P*  u "^HeEifliop ofRaab continuesJiisConferences H       with ourBurgo-mafters to perfwade them to receive lbmeD�f^Regiments into this City, but notwirhftanding his prefling foilicitations and remonflrances,  they have tjken no refolutiqn on that pnint. The Elector Palatine has written to our Magiftrat.es on the fame fubjecr, and acquiinted them with the Emperors indentions ; fo that 'tis believed they will this day or ro morrow determine themfeJves. In the mean time the Dutch Troops increafe about Mulheim, within 3 miles of this City, that they may be ready to come hither.  There is a report, that the places in Weft-fhalia belonging to this Electorate are garrifoned by \tiunfterians, and that the Troops of the  Elector of Cologn that were therein a�e on their march for thefe parti.   We bear from Francftrt, that the Circle of the U$er Rhine have declared for the Emperor, and that-thole of Suebia and Franconia are to do the like. The Troops continue to work on the Lines in the Palatinate.   They pretend to carry thefe Lines from Neujiat co Lattlercn, and from rhence to Tryers, which they hope to effect without any oppofition of the French, who have sow but 8000 men in Alface, all the reft of their Forces being difperfed in the Spenijh Netherlands Leige, the Electorate of Ctitgft arid Italy-They write from Katisbonne that the entry of the Cardinal of Lemberg.High Cornmiftioner of the Emperor is to be very magnificent.  He has 12 Coaches drawn by 6 Horfes a piec.2, 6 Waggons richly covered for his Baggage drawn Jikewife by 6 Horfes, 6 Mules, and above J(oP men in Livery, befides-his Cjibineers, Heydukes,  Guards, Trumpets, and Kettle Drums.   The Imperialifts give out that the Dyet'will declare the French King an Enemy of the Empire, and fuch Princes who are in hi* intereft or Neuter, Enemies' to rheir Country. Hague, Decern. 9. The States General have received a Letter from the Duke of Mantua, wherein rieendeavonrs to juftify his proceeding*, or excufe the fame upon account of an unavoidable neceffity, and defire that their High Mightfrjefles would interceed for him with' the Emperor, that the proceedings begun- againft him maybe mfpend-�d. That Letter was read in the Afl*embJy of the States but we do riot hear that they came to a-ny refoluHpri abqui if. The States have fent new inftni&ions bo their Envoy at the Court Vienna, about-the AfRirs offtglig^on in Silsjta, and orders to infill that the fair prbrntfes made unto him by the Imperial Minifters may be put in execution, arid that the Proteftants in the Dominions of the Emperor,' may nor be molefted upon account of their Religion, his Imperial Majefty having promifed po maintain them in their priviledges and the free ex-ercife of their Religion, Mordieur Hemikirk is daily : expefted here firom Frtmte. He is lb very weak and decayed, that he is altogether unfit for any affairs. They write from Brujfeli ,xhzt according to the orders of the French Courr, they had, refolved to fupprefs , a great numbet of pub.lick 'Offices,.,and that the Placaert for the fame being; &at tobdapproved of by the Elector of Pavaria, as Gowernour of thofe Provinces, that Prince refui'dto' fign'the fame, be-eaufea great many Families will .be ruined by that pretended Reform. They havje fentanaceounrof it to the French Court, and.|there is no doubt but the raoft Chriftian King will order the Placaerrro "be put in execution without any regard to the op-jtofirifln made by the .fcleSpr of Bavaria.   We hear the Eleftor Palatine is come into the Grand Alliance againft Frnr.ee, and that a Memorial oh the part of the Duke of Savof, has been delivered to the States, relating to the ptefent juncture of Affairs. _   Parts, Dec. 1 o.  Our laft Letters From Italy tell us, tiatthe Troops on both (ides continue in �b.eir former quarters.  Prince Eugene of Savoy hatieceived fome reinforcements, and feems refolved to venture uponthe Siege of Goito near Mantua, but the Roads are ib bad, aHd bis Troops have,undeTgona as well as ours, fo much fatigue this long Campaign, that 'tis not likely, that that Prince will form an en-terprize, which might blaft the Glory he has fo juftly gained.  In the mean time 'tis certain, that as long as we have Goilo on one fide and BqzoIo on the other, they will find themfelves very much ftreighrned in their quarters, that part of the Man- , tuan wherein they are, having been entirely ruined. They write from2)ro/,that they have great Magazines in that Country but theirConvoys will be very much difturbed'bvtheGarrifon of Goito.AnExprefs difpatch-ed by the Cardinal a�Efitusjs arrived here hovaVenice, with advice, that the Imperial AmbaiTador hadde-fired a private Audience of the Senate, in the name of the Emperor, the King of England and the States. This made that Cardinal very jealous, that the Re-publick may beinduced to come into the Alliance concluded againft Prance and Spain, and rather because the Imperialifts have declared, that they are refolved to take Winter quarters in Italy.   The Daktx>{-Mantua is very uneafy, Grice the retreat of our Army, for now he is no more than a Prifo-ner in his Capital City, and. we hear he intends to come hither this Winter.  That Pjrince has written to all the Princes and States in Europe, to reprefent unto them the violent Proceedings of the Imperial Court againft him ; but we do not hear that any one   has yet interpofed in his behalf.  His Envoy Extraordinary to this Court, delivere d fome days ago to the Secretary of the Dutch Embafly, a Letter from his mafter for the States Genera], and a-Bother for the King of England, deiiring, that he would tranfmit it to London, but we don't know upon what fubjeft, unlels it be to excufe what he has done, and d�fires his Majefty and the States to intercede for him with the Emperor.   Letters from Turin f�y> that the Troops of Savoy axe not yet arrived in their quarters,and that there is a great Sick-nefs amongft them.  Frequent Exprefles arrive here from the Marquefs tfJJjfon our General, and Envoy in the Court of Wotlfembuttel, and we hear great fumms of money are remitted in thofe parts, for augmenting the Eotces of the Puke oif that name, and thofe of Saxe Goiha, which though without acting, will prove of great fervice to us, becaufe the King of Pmffia, the Elector of Hannover, and the Duke of Zell,. will be obliged to keep a good Body .of Troops in their own Country, which otherwise they would have fent againft us.   The Sieur Jordan, Envoy of the King of Poland jis fhortly expefled here, and we flatter pur felyes, that the Alliance between that Prince and the Emperor, which has been reported to be as good as concluded, meets ftill with new difnoulties, which arenoteafily to be removed. The King has appointed the following General Officers to command his Forces this Winter    The Count of GaJJien at St Tron, in the room of Monfieur Xlmtnes, who command* now in Liege, the Mattjueft of Mtntrtml in the Electorate of Cohgn, the Count dt Gajfe at Brrttim the F>*m.tr, Monfteur d'A-tagnan in Antwerp, the Count de Qgelus at Tirhmont, Monfteur �dv Rofel at H*jfel, the Marquefs oiThouyzr tier it, the Mar-
