   Post Man (Newspaper) - May 5, 1802, London, Middlesex                                Numt).     96"5 t y y And the Hiftefrkatl Account, ere. From "SlieCDap May 5, to XftttrfDap May 7, 1702. Mw ^ Imperial Camp at Ltizara, April 15. Eneral Pifcinti, who commands our Troops about Up�no and Cancno, continues �o take all poffible precautions for fecuring thole two places, and o-ther Pofts along the Oglio, to prevent the relief of Mantua, According to the report bf our Spiss, and theDeferrerS that come over ro usfc che Frenchare preparing to break up from San Nazari'. and other Camps ; but as 'tis not yet known which way they inrend to match, the Imperial Troops continue in their former Pods, and the young Prince of Paudenont is incamped between-the Rivers Parma si:d Bazanza, within 5 miles of the City of Parma, and are plentifully fupplkd with Forrage and Pio-viuens by the Duke of that name. Prince Eugtneha-''�rig viewed :he mouth of the River Lenta, has ordered Ibme intrenchment* to be made there, and phnf-rd there; n a good Batrery, the better to fecure Be *elltt ?nd the Br'-Jge we h.re over the Pi near rliat place.   The G.on ftf is fo narrowly ob-; ferved by the Troops i-nploye.l in the Blockade, that they dare not appear abroad, and we hear by forne Deferters, that the French in thar place, and the Gert-rry are fain our, which Quarrel has obliged Count Thsjje to keep for 3 days all the Gate?{hutHp. We hear from the Milanezs, that the Duke of Anjou'ii expected there rhe next month, and ;uat they make great preparations for his reception. According to our advices from Germany n-e may fuddenly expeft all the reinforcements that hsve been promifed to Prince Eugene. We have already received above 2000 Horfe.anJ there is advice, that a body of yr 00 men are on this lide la Cbiufa, and may be expected in very few days. Thefe. are followed fay 10000 men more, the grea'eft parr whereof are arrived in Tyrol; and 'tis not doubted but they will arrive rime enough to enable us to act ofreniiveJy. We hear the French have gor together 10000 Sacks- of Corn and a vaft quantify of other Provifions at Spncini, which the Duke of VandoTne pretend1; to conduct to Mantua ; but cur Generals have taken fuch meafures to prevent it, that they feem confident, that the French will find it impracYtcahle. O.ie -of our Parties of 40 m;n, commanded by aLieurenant, fell in fome days a�o with apaity of the French of 100 men, whom they charged 4 times, and made their retreat by favour of a Wood, with the lofs of 1 Subalrem Officers and 14 Soldiers, and the French left 3 Officers and 6r�en, and one of their famous Partizans called Pontile, was mortally wounded. Colagn, May 9. We hear from rhe Upper Rhine, that he Hnftilitiesare aftually begun in thote parts,.and that the'lmperialifts and the French have had feveral skirmifhes, in which the former have got the advantage. The Imperial Army at Langcncnndel is daily reinforced by the arrival of feveral Troops; and Monlieur Catinat is drawing all his Forces between tltgumi'.t and Brant atH, where he intends to have in few days 30000 men ; jsooo men that were marching for Italy being counrer manded. The King of the Romans is expeQed in the Army by the latter end-of this month. The Siege of Kefftrvaert is in the fame condition as by our former, and 'tis impoffible to eirry on the Trenches, as long as the Waters of the Rhine continue to te fo high. The French have made feveral motions about Duffeldtrp and Keyjcrvaert, hut have as yet undertaken nthmgat all. They plunder the Counrry in a very Arrange manner; and there are a world of" People retired under the Cannon of this place. Oar Gmifon is ordered to be in a readinefs to march, and a Detachment of Gre-tudeers is fent to reinfrrc- the Gair fon of the new Fort, erefUd over awainft Mulbchn, for the fecuiity. of the Bridg* we have in rhir place From the Imperial /frmjbtfi'i Keyfeiwaert, May 9. The EleEtor.Pahrirt* is arrived in the (jinp, and a great Council of War -.v�s hsid y arte id ay in the quarters of Prinse Starbru;k,   wherein the Count de Prize, General of the Imperial Foot under Prince Lewi! of Baden, was prefent,   and it* was re-folved to carry on the Siege with all poffible vigour, notwithftandihg all the inconvemencies we are put to by rhe overflowing of the Rhine,   Our Trenches are fiill full of Water, but the lame began this day td decreafe, and fo we hope to be in a day or two in a condition to carry on our Attacks. The ovei flowing, of the Rhine has given an opportunity to the ''French to introduce a Reinforcernsnt by night into "the Town ; but we value that but little provided we have fair weather.   A Body of French Troops of, 7000 men, under the command of Count Tallard,*v'. pearedtwo days ago upon b^eak of day before &u0+' i�rp, with fome Caqnon and Mortars, as if they intended to bombard that place, whereupon the Ele* ftorefs Palatine fent an Officer fo the French General, to know why he came, lb near that place ?   an J, tell hun that (he commanded therein, and expe&ed that he would let her know, whether he defign'd to bbmbp.rd it.   Count Tallard anfwered,   that hi was. come thither by order of the Duke of Birgundy, and expefted his farther orders. However, as the Elector Palatine has camfed So pieces of Cannon to be plant-, ed on feveial Batteries along the Rhine, and pur 1000 men in the new Fart etefted on the ptber lide, 'tis hardly believed that the French wijl undertake to bombard Dvfeldmf.  Some Regiments ..from the--, Gamp neaf Maiheim- are come near that place. Hague, May 12. Our Army under rhe command of the Earl oiAthltme is fo considerably reinforced, that the Troops defigneJ for the Sea expedition sre . rx> return on board.  ThatGneral retrenches him-, felf, waiting for the Tuccefs of'the Siege of Kcyfer-' spatrt, of which yre expect 4 good account, notwiih-ftanding the unfeafbnablenefs of the weather, which has hitherto prevented the raking of that placed Upon advice that 12000 Men were detached from the French Camp� our Army was for a whole night on their Arms, but feveral Parties who were abroad, tould hear nothing of their march, which makes vs believe that that report is falfe.  The young Prince, of Orange has caufed a Memorial to be delivered to the States General, to defire them to take upon them the Office of Executor* of the lafl Will of his late. Majefty, which is as follows. CT N the Nante if God, Amen.
