Post Man (Newspaper) - February 14, 1802, London, Middlesex Ancf the Hiftorical Account* &c> From �attttl�ay February 14 to lEwfoap February 1*7, 1702. ' fitnva, February 8. SEvera] Exprefies are arrived here from Prince Engens, with advice, that bisHighnefs being informed, that the French Reinforcements are, partly arrived in Italy, and therefore makes pieuing^ infhnces, that the Imperial Troops defigned for the f*me Country, may be ordered to haften their marchis much as poffible. *Tis faid, rhatPrmce oppofes the defign of fending ' any Troops into the Kingdom of Ntplti, and is of o-pinbn, that the Emperor ought to bend all his Forces againft the French on the Rhine, and in the Milmife,. for ff the French can be driven out of that Dutcby, the Kingdom''of NapUt will fall in courfe. However, Count Guttenjtein, and other Generals appointed to command the Troops to be fent ta^apltt, are fetout for Italy, withjtfee pake of TiUCa arid other Neapolitan Lords. His Invpetial Majefty being informed of the proceedings-of the Pope againft the Marquefs del Va-p, Velt Marefchal of his Forces, Has Written a civil,1 but preding Letter to the Pope on that fabjefit, and defired that that Lord may be,perm7tted to quit Re�;, and the. Ecclqfiairical Territories with: a fare Guard;, which act of jufHcehis Majefty expects, that he may;' not be compelled^ contrary to his inclination, to oft the power God hap given to Sovereign Princes to do t&emfelvesjuftice^ whenth* fame t� denied to them. The news we receive from Ergland is very acceptable.  to thisCoart^nd *ris hOp^d,thatthe�extExprefs from rheHsgw will bring advice,that ourCorifederates have refolved to enter upon aSion, to hinder the French thereby from fending any more Troops into Italy. They prepare the Equipage of the King of the Rmans, whofe journey for theRfaiie is fixed to the beginning . of April; and in the mean time the Troops defigned for thofe parts, are ordered to hold themfelves in a readinefs ro march. We have no further account of the Negotiations between this Court and the Elector of Bavaria; and 'tis furmifed, that the French, who look upon the fame* as a fatal blow in the prefent junfture, have made fome new offers to that Prince, to keep him firm in their Interefc ; but however, they feem confident'here, that his Electoral Highnefs will not declare againft us. DtmizJck, February ir. The Letters we had fome days �go from Warfav, gave us fo favourable an account of the difpoliiion of the Dyet, that we were in hopes the fame would not feparate without taking fuch refolutions as the condition of their Country feem to require ; but an Exprefs arrived yefterday with the (iitprizing advice, that the Dyet broke up the 7th inftantin great confufion, and that the Deputies were returning home. We do not know yet all the parricu lar's-of thedi/ToIution of the Dyet ; but we are told in general, that the 6 weeks, which is the time allowed by the Lawi, or Cuftoms of Poland, for the fitting of the Dyet, expiring on the 4th in-ftant, the Sieur Pact., 3 Deputy of Lithuania, Knight of Malthx, and formerly Envoy of the late King to the Court of Sweden, protefted againft the prolongation of the laid Qyet, which .was propofed on the Kings parr, as in innovation contrary to the confti-rution of their Courirry. Several other Deputies were of the fame opinion ; but the Marefchal or Speaker having reprinted uitb them.rfut their An-ceftors had often contented to tbe prolongation of Dyers, when there waVa vifibl* rtecefTuy for it, and particularly in year 1^49. afreT the dreadful irruption of the Tartars and Ctpcb into the Kingdom, he hoped that the Gentlemen, who compofed the prefent Dyet, would follow the example of their Fathers* and not depart without providing1 for the fecurity of their Country, which was in as jgfcac danger - as ever, being difturbed by inteftine Commotions, and threatned by a powerful Enemy from abroad. Thefe reafons, or other considerations, obliged the Deputies to confent, that the Dyet fhould be prolonged to the 6ih, but the Sieur Paac having obtained no fatisfaction, for his pre* > ten/ion to the place of firft Marefchal of lithmni*, went away the 7th, and fo the Dyet was fepankd. They tell us, that feveral Deputies ufed a great freedom in their debates, and affertad, that the King had broke thePafifa Convert*, and feveral other things, which muft needs increaie the fufpicion of the Court. Some advices fay, that his M*jetty will fummon a general Dyet to meet on Hor/eback, and others that . he will firft take a journey into Saxtnjt whether fome of his moft rich moveables are fent. Whatever it is, 'tis certain that the Confternation is very great at Warjaw, and the fame is like-to increafe, when they ate informed of thedefign.oi the King of Svtdtn, who according to our la(t advices from Lih*t is marching with a gallant Army directly to War]m>. Notwithftanding the Treaty of accommodation between, the Safieha'ixnithc Confederated ^Nobility of btbumtU, there i&.cauleto fear tba't>iMiieo�rAc par-clet being throughly fatisfled, witf tike the ad-vtmagtot the fepwation of the Oy et,Hib break out again. Mgue, February 21. There is advice from On-grat*Nf&by the,way xAViama, that the ft-flK* Mini-ftsr reading there, has laboured very hard to iagage . the Port to declare againft the Emperor, now that his Forces are ib implpyed in Italy ana* ellewhere; thattheOttflmntr can never .expect a-more favourable opportunity to regain-whatever they have loft in thpteary. Thefe Letter* fay that thofe Artifices of the French had fo far fucceeded that Count Tociiiy was fent for from AJU to afltft in a Council of War which was held on that occasion, wherein the Majority declared for a War with the Emperor, but the Grand Sigoiot being fenftble of the extremities his Empire was reduced to, by reafon of the late War, which was begun by the Artifices of the French, and in which the Turk were forfaken by that Crown, declared that he was refolved religiouuy to keep the Treaty of Carlivitz., as long as the Chriftians gave him no provocation, and that he was convinced that God, who had fo vifibly manifefted his indignation againft the Porr.fbr their breaking without caule their former Treaties, would never pr&fper an undertaking which muft begin with the Violation of an Oath. Ttckley was immediately Commanded back to his Country Houfe, and thofe Letters fiy, that the refolution of the Grand Signior was notified to the Imperial Secretary and to theMinifters of England tad Holland, as Mediators of the laft Treaty of Peace.The Earl of Albemarle arrived this evening from. England, and we heat a Council of War u to be held this week, wherein that Lord is to a(Iift,to acquaint them with the Orders of his Majefty of Grtat Britain. In the mean time all our Troops are ordered to hold themfelves in a readinefs to march by the firft of the next month, and the Brandinburghtrt m the Dutchy oFC/ftw have received the like Orders. Our Marine, Regiments are ordered fo go on board our Fleet, which will be ready by the beginning of April to put to Sea, and even fooner if occasion be. They write from Bntfeh that they have advice from WXan, that theFrcnch loft inCrmww rjoo men^nd amongft them a great number of brave Officers. The chief Officers
