Post Man (Newspaper) - January 24, 1802, London, Middlesex Numb. 927 Add the Hiftorical Account. &c. From &aStHfoap January 24, to XttefOfly January 27, 1702. Barcelona, January ! >. THe King of Spam is entirely recovered of his indiipolition, and the Corcezdr States of Catalonia have concluded their Ssflion,. to the mutual fatisfaclion of the Court and Country. On the nth iriftant his Majefty repaired to the ailembly of the States, for the Election of Ju.Jges and other chief Magistrates ; and yeftcrday aucuc4 in the afternoon the King and Queen went to the Church of St Fran-tit, where the Cortez were AiTeaibled, and their Ma-jefties being feated each on a Throne, under a rich Canopy, the Xing laid his right hand on the Crofi, and his left on the Book or the Gofpel,and i'wore to maintain the Ancient Privijedges of Catalonia, and the new ones that his Majefty has granted them. This Ceremony being over, the three members of the States, each being pieceded by their Presidents, came to the Thrane, and kifled their Majeftiss Hands, who returned to the Palace under a general difcharge of the Cannon of this place. The departure of the Court from hence is very uncertain, and 'tis faid chat their Majsfties go to Septs, of which we fliali have a true account by the return of an Exprefs fent to Paris, Va.via.inthe Milanefe, January 10. The French have finifhed their Bridge over the Po at Cremona, the conftru&ion of which had been very much retarded by the fwelling of that River. Monfieur fHlleroj hat left in the Cremonefe 23 Batal lions and 14 �, Squadfons ofHorfe and Dragoons; and the reft of the Army is difperfed in this Country, and other parts of the Mihnej'e, and that part of Mtntfenat that belongs to the Duke of Mantua. The French Generals being informed, that Prince Eugene intends to fiend a Detachment into the Alixwdrino, we hear that they have refolded to draw a Line from Ttrtona to Bt&it, a place fituated on the River Tribia, that falls into the Po, a little above Placentia, and from Bobio ro the Caflle of Sr Giawni, on the Frontiers of the Territories of Genoa, which they hope to effect; �without great trouble, becaufe of the Mountains and Riven, which make that Country of a difficultac-cefs. Monfieur Pillenj has font feveral Detachments over the Po, in the Country of Placmtia, where they are to live at difcreciori, for depriving the Germant from all means of 'fobnlian.ee in thofe parts. Prince Eugene continues about Eerzello, and General Vaubmne about Parma ; but there is a report, rbat he was to take potiefllonof Hiit phceas yeifejday or chismorn- Parts, February 1. The report we had fome days ago, that Prince Eugene had been let upon and dot through the Arm by Count Boxalli, as it was iup-pofed, proves now groundlefs-, and our freflier advices from Cremona tell us, that a German Party having Burnt the Houfe of a Boor, he was fo inraged thereat, that Prince Eugene going by that place, the $oor fived upon him, and mot off his Hat from his Head, without doing himany hurt. If thofe Letters are to be relisd u,'0:), 'tis likely that this gave birth to the report mentioned in our former, of which our next Letters win give us a true account. They write from our Held quarters, that thi Germans con-tinm to extend their quitters in'o theDiKchy ofPar-ma, and that General Vafkowie is near the Cipitil City, with a Body of Troops to take pofefliou of (tit place, as ioon as ahExprnfs the Duke of that name has fent to Rome is returned with the Popes anfwer. Monfieur VdUrof has propofed to that Prince, to put a French Garrifon into Plactntui, but he has excufed the fame, imlefs oar Generals cou'd fpare him a fufficienc number or* Troops to defend his Country, which is open to the, Impeiialifts; and as they are not in a condition to do it, there is no doubt but Prince Eugene will fecure that Country; which opens him a way into the very Heart of the Milaneze. In the mean time Monfieur Villtrvf has fent a d etachment under the Command of the Sieur de Pralin, to live ac difcretion in the Country called Staff Paiavinncon the 0-ther fide of the Po, to flop the excurfions of the Germans, and that Commander is to quarter at Corti ^Mtggiore, not far from Fiorenzutl* on the River Lard*. The Garrifon of Mantua being fo clofely blocked Up, that moft of the Couriers from thence ate intercepted by rhe Germans, we have no certain account of. the condition of that place; but our advices from Milan arid Brefcia make us fear, that Count Thejfe will not be able to maintain himfidf inthat Port, for want of Provifions and other neceffaiies. The Reinforcements defigned for the Milanese continue their match towards the Ports of Provence, but tbs Roads are fo bad, that they cannot arrive there by the iothof this month, as they were ordered, which makes the Coiiit fomuch the more uneafie, becaufe they are a-fraid the Germans will have time to extend tliR.r quarters into ihtTortmeu andjfIexaridrihe,to hinder the conjunction of thofe Troops with the nia;r, A;my in the Miiintze. The Regiments of Rciujouis. Berry and Dauj>biue,anA another are ordered fin Naplet. An Exprefs arrived 'aft night ac C'jurc from Brejl. who as'tis laid brought advice, that a^FrigOt is arrived there from Placentia in Newfoundland, with advice that Monfieur Coethgm and the Spmifo Gallions under his Convoy have put into that place, and were 16 fail few days after directly for Brejl, and not for Cadiz, but this news is fo material that it requires confirmation. iTefterday the King made a promotion of General Officers, viz. Seventeen Lieutenant Generals.forty eight Major Generals.and eighty Bti-gadeers,and the Lieutenant Generals are as follows. Meilieurs Desbtrdes, Laubanie, Count Laniov, Lomaria, Bezant, Varemus, Count LomotW,-fandevil, Mtdavid, Count Soldre, Davejan, Praantal, Dubourg,
