Post Man (Newspaper) - September 12, 1802, London, Middlesex And the HiAorical Accoynt, &c. From ^tltUtDap-September 12, co CUliMf September 15, 1702. From (he Imperial Camp before Landau, September n. N the yh inftant in rhe evening we rook pofFtuion of a, Half-moon, and the next day look tlie whole Fort or Cittidel, on the fide of the attack of General Tbuvgen-, with the lofs of about �5 men, notwiihitanJing the Enemy fprung feveral Mines. The9th, as we were preparing to give a general Sronn, Monfieur de Melac let up a wfnte I-Sag and beat a ^Parley, whereupon Hofhges being exchanged, the Capitulation was ligned the loth, and ihi (aiuj day the Enemy delivered up ope of the Gare� and a Half-moon, which were poffeffed by 800 niiii, undf.r rhe Command of Count Than. The Garrifuo, confifting of about 2oco m-a,is ro march, out this day with all the m-rks of honour, Drums bearing, Flying Colours, &c wirh 4 pieces of Cannon, and 1 Mortars marked with the Arms of France, and is co be conducted to Ha-uenatt. Upon advice ihit rhe Fr;nch A.my is adv.ir.c-d to L.iuterburg, orders a;e gi.'en ro m ^it of our Horfe and Dragoons to fas ready to march. The Capitulation was figned by Prince Lewis of Baden and Count Melae. This p'ace was invested the lfi-h of June, and the Trenches were opened the io'h, lo that the Siege has Jailed near 3 months, which wiil not feem flrange cefuch, who know that Landau is one of the ftrongeft For-trefles in the World. The Count de Frize Veil Ma-refchil of the Imp-trial Forces, is made Governoar of rhe Place, in consideration of his fervices during the Siege. Rttisbonni, Sept. 12. On Friday laft the 8th intrant, the Imperial City of Ulm on the Danube was furprized by the Troops of th^e Elector of Bavaria. They write from thence, that about 30 Officers of the Troops of chat Prince being cloathad as Boors, got into the-Town, and fecured one orthe Gates, and upon a certain lignal, were followed by a Regiment of Dragoons having each a Foot behind them. The Inhabitants had no Troops for their defence, and it  was not believed that the Elector ofBav#ri� wouUi thus attack tht Empire without any provocation. He has dtawn all his Forces about that place, but whit further deligns he"lias in view, time will dif-cover. The Minilters of the Dyet have difpafched ExprefTes to their refpective Mafters.te acquaint them with this proceeding of the the Elector of Bavaria, which mud needs invo've Germany in a Civil War. Franckfort, Sep*. 13. The Imperial Envoy has made greac rejoycings for the taking of Landau, which iuirendred the 1.0th. inftant, the Governour having not thought fit to venture a general ftorm, his Gar-riion being fo weakened that out of 4000 men, the' fame is now reduced to 1100, befides (Too more who are wounded or lick. The faking of that p.'ace caufes fo much the greater joy in thefs parti, that had the place held out but few days longer, fome are of opinion that the Imperialifs would have been obliged ro raife the Siege, by reafon of the farpfizing conduftofthe Elector of Bavana, who in oider to favour the relief of Landau, at-the fame time that Mon'seur Catinat was marching towirds Lauter burgh, has feiz^rt the Free and" Imperial Ciryof and is now-encamped near chit place wirh iScoo men. Whatever it is, 'cis ctruin that their deltgns were prevented by rhe feafonable taking of that place, for�rhe Imperial Army having obliged Mop-jieur Ciimat to return towards S'ra'burgb wihrhelofi of roo .men of his Re^r, which was chirked and beaten by the Germans, rhe King of the Kswsnr i; in t condition to make 3 iii'fi.ienr detach uenc re joyn the Forces of the Circle ofSu.tb:*, and flop rhe further defigns of the Ba-gani:'! ' fi< fm'd the Elector of Ra-jwia has written to til; City oiVlm, ind declares that lie does not defiga to deprive them of their Privileges, but has been neceffitated ro rake thefc meafures, to oblige rhe Cirde of Suabia to obferve the Treaties of Munfier and Rejwick, which he fays the) have infringed by joyning with the Emperor againft France. Paris, S'epcsmber ij. They write from Z*zsra of the 4th inltant, that the Siege of Guajlala is carried on wich a great dealof vigour, and that the Garrilbn makes a flout reliitance ; but as the Fortifications are very indifferent, they hope to be matters of the p^acu in a few days. The Garrifon of Ber^elh is very troubleibme to our Troops, and their parties have lately done us a great deal of damage. The two Armies continue in their former Pofh, there being.no likelihood of any Action, unlefsitbe upon decamping. The King of Spain does, it feetns, give over his defign of beating the Germans out of Italy this Campaign ; for they write from rhe Camp, that his Catholick Majefty intended to fet out the aoth inltant for Spain over Land, and'tis not doubted but the news of the landing of the Bn'glifh and Dutch at Cadiz, will fuften his Journey to Madrid. Several ExprefTes are arrived from Madrid, with the confirmation of theDefcent of the Confederates on the North fide of the Bay of Cadiz, near a place called La Rum, and that the Marquis of Valero, Lieutena�t General of the Spamjb Horfe, who offered to oppofe their landing with 300 Foot and 150 Harle, was killed, and his Men put to flight. They tell us here, that Cadiz is fo well ptovided, that there is no reafon to fear any thing for that place, and that the Marquis de VtUa Dariat, General of the CoafH of Anddoufia, is drawing a good Body of Troops to oppofe the Enemy, who have fet up the Imperial Flag on the Fort of la Rotta, and difperfed feveral Declarations, inviting; the Spaniards to joyn with them, for afferttng the Rights of the Houfe of Aujiria to the SpanifhMo? narchy. They write from Madrid, that the news of the landing of the Confederates, has cailfed a great conlteination in that City ; and fome Letters fay, that the Mob has iniulted Cardinal Portocarriro, whom they look upon as the chief caufeof their prefenc diffractions. The Duke oiOrmmd wrote to the Marquis, of Brant actio, Governor of Cadiz, that having known him in the late Wars in Flanders fo firm in the Intereft of the Houfe of Jufhia, he hoped that he would take this opportunity to (hew his' zeal for rhe Emperor, who. had an undeniable Right to the Crown of Spain, and deliver up that City. The Go-  vernor returned 2 very civil anfwerto the Duke, importing, that he was very much obliged to him for his eftsem, and that the beft vay he could take to d<j�rve the continuation thereof, was to defend Cadiz to the la It extremity. The King has difpatched feveral Expreflis to the King of Spain and to Madrid, with new inftru&ions concerning this Invalion,which makes our Court very uneafy, efpecially, feeing the King of Portugal bas- plainly declared to our Ambaf-iador, that France and Spain having not performed the conditions of the Treaty concluded with him, they could not blanae him for altering bis meafures, and taking l'uch refolutions, without \tfhich he could not prelerve his Dominions.  The Dauphin is perfectly recovered, and is gone for Font amble au, and the King . intends to be going thirher in a few' days. The Duke of Burgundy arrived the 8th inltant. An Exprefs has brought advice of rhe Siege of.Venlo, which is given over for loft, notwithitanding we have a good Ganiion therein, Commanded by theSieur Labbadie, an Officer of great experience.
