Post Man (Newspaper) - January 27, 1802, London, Middlesex And the Hiftorical Account, &c. from XttefOap January 27, to Xftttrfeap January � J^m, February 4. Ur Letters from Rome and ^w'cs tell Us, that the Pope and the RepubVick are very angry with the Duke of Mo-dent, for delivering up Berzello to Prince Eugene of Savoy. That Duke has.Written to them to excufe the fame upon account'of an unavoidable necefltry, and telJs them that lie was not in a condition ta defend chat place, and protefit his Dominions which were threatned with a general devaluation by the Imperialiifs, but 'tis faid the Pope and the Senate have not thought fit to return him any anfwer, being convinced that that Prince is intiiely in the intereftof the Emperor, df which he has given an undenflrble prootin re-fuling, as'tis faid, to hearken to a propofal^l general League erf the Italian Princes, for preferviag their Neutrality. Tis pretended he>e that the Pope is very much difpkrafed with Prince Eugene for quartering his Troops in the Dutchy of Parma, which is, a Fief of the Church, and that he has written a Letter with his Own band to the Emperor about that Affair, and the paffage defired by the Imperial Ambaflador through the Ecclefiaftical Territories, for a Body of Troops which Prince Eugene intends to fend to ifafles. That defign makes our Court very uneafie, for they are fenfible that the Emperor has a great Party in thar Kingdom. 'Tis confirmed that the King of Spain is to go thither next Spring, and that.Count tdarjat our ArnbaiTador willattead him, and Command the S$*ni(b Forces in chat Country. The 4 Regiments of Foot tha: are, to be fent thither, continue their march with all polfible fpeed for Provence, from whence they write that ftveral Batallions have been Shipped off at Thtulon for Italy, and that Tranfport Ships are ready there, to rake on board the .Troops as they arrive. An Exprefs is arrived from Row�,with a very extraordinary piece cfNevvs, if it is confirmed. They tell us that the Pope has refumed the almoff quite forgotten Thunder-bolt of the Vatican, and ordersd the Imperial Army forthwith to march out of Italy upon pain of Excommunication. This is fo foolifh apdextravagant, that people cannot fancy, that the Pope, who has hitherto (bowed himfelf a Wife and Judicious Man,would now forfeit hisReputation and expofi.the Holy See, for no Man in hisSenfes can believe, that the Imperial Army will now quit Italy for fear of an Excommunication. This might have hid fome effects in the days of Yore, when a Pope trampled under foot an unfortunate Emperor, and when it was believed that the Pontiff of Rome had. really the Keys of the Kingdom of Heaven, and might exclude from thence fuch as he p.'eafed 5 but the-World being grown Wifer, they have a juft; contearpc forrhar iaiaginary potver a/Turned by the Pope. Our laft advices from Cremona fay, that the Duke of Farm* has received our Troops into his Capital City, and that the Marefchal of Fdkroy has fent 2000 Horfe thither to ffop the excurlions of the. Germain ; but tlii? advice feeins to require confirmation, for (he Letteis we had by the Courier before thi-v, ro!>i ns uoiitively, that that Prince had refufed to nar; a French Carrifon.and that General Vaitbmne -.vas u: r'ts Gate cf Partita, and lb it is hardly cre.i'Vc tlvit out Troop-, (hould ' have marched in:orh�: place wit�:cut being attacked by the ImpeiiaLiK 'lis confirmed that a detachment of our Forces is po/tai r.^.-.r f^nr.zuila, between ?*rm� and ?'u:t�Ha, to c-w.l-r.-c ths motions of the German; , but what need of that de tachment, if we are Matters of Parma. Our Forces in. Italy, confining of 71 Batallions and 80 Squadrons, are difpofed as follows,.'30- Squadrons of Horfe and Dragoons in the Mnttferrat, u in Cremona, 14 in the jlexandrim, n in the Mantttan, and la between the Po andtheOg&o. There are 13 Batallions in Cremona, 3 in Pavia, .7 at Ledi, 19 in the Mantaan, 13 in feveral fmall places of the Crenimtu, Btztlt and Sabioneta, a xtPUtgbitone, 2 at Stmcipo, and 3 along the Adda, but thofe Troops are fo weakned, that feveral Batallions are reduced to loo effe&ive men. The headquarters of the Marefchal of PVk-roy are at Cremona, having, with him the Marquefs of Revel, the Marquefs of Crenan, and the Sieur Al-btrgoti. Lieutenant Generals; the Duke of -FilUroy, and Count Mangtn, Major Generals. The Marquefs of Crequy Lieutenant General, with Monfieur. de Ca-vois, Major General, Commands between the Po and the Oglio, the Marquefs of BarbezJeret in the Umt' ferr at, and the Marquefs of yaubecourt in the Aexem* drino. We have no further account of the Germans, who being weary of the fatigues they have undergone during the longed Campaign that ever was, itand in need of good quarters to refielh themfelves. Money grows daily more fcarce, and there is a project of making Bills in the nature, of Exchequer Notes, which were ufed fome time ago InEriglond, but with this great difference that ours fhall be taken as 'ready Money in all payments between Man and Man, and not only in the Kings Revenue. Our Letters from Hifmes in Langtudoc \oij the 23d paft tell us, that the Prifons of that place and other Neighbouring Towns are full of a fort of Fanaticks, who. have appeared in chafe Countries for tbeie ri months. They report wonders of that People, and amongft other things, that they ate now and then feised with a fort of Enthufiafm, during which they feem in great agitations, and utter long Speeches in very good French, tho when they are outof it, they ate not able to fpeak but their own Jargon. They exclaim againft the Romifh Church, and exhort Ptople to renounce her Idolatry and Su-perffipons, but when they come again to themfelves they do not remember what they have laid ;they began to meet together in the Fields to pray to God, but the Governours have ordered fbme Troops to fire upon them and difperfe them. Their Founder, called Qnmel Rows, having had the affurance to come into a Town, and preach in the publick place a-gainft the Church of Rome, was feized and condemned to be broke alive upon the Wheel, and both upon his Tryal and Execution . behaved himfelf with that Chriftian Patience and Re/Tgnation, that drew tears from all Spectators. Thofe People being, generally fpeaking,what we call new Converts, the Priefts give out, that they are turned mad, tho by all the accounts we have, they feem to have a right ufe of their Reafon, and ufe very good arguments, to fljew that the prefetvatiun of their Life, the only point in which they feem to be wanting, ought not to (land in competition with the Duties, to which the profeffion of Truth obliges fuch as love it; but we refer to another rime a larger account of that People.
