   Post Man (Newspaper) - October 8, 1802, London, Middlesex                                *vnd the Hiflorical Account, r&c from Xtyuf     October 8, to ^atUP&tp Odoberib, i^ai;', ': Rows, Seftember He apprehenfions this Court had, that the Germans wouid take Winter quarters in theTerritorie? of rhe Church, proves very well grounded, for on Saturday lad art Ex?re(s arrived here from the Cardinal of Ferrara, with advice that Prince Engine : ! gensnl Officer to him, to demand Winter : hi che Fen-aitzt, and that City or Boknia co make iph-:e of Arms. The Pope held thereupon a Cjngfi^arian of State, wherein it was refolded to maintain an exact. Neutrality, and therefore to re-fufr the d�mands..of the Imperial iffs, and rhofa made by Cardinal Fourbin on the pare of France and Spr,in,m& to give i-\ equal liberty to both Parties, to buy Corn and other Provifions in the Territories of the Church. The Imps; ialAmbaflador fays nothing on that poirfr, and it fisms the Court of Vienna has prudently lefc Vvt management of that Negotiation to Prince Ei^ne , who palling over federal formalities, wn1 bring that affair to a fpeedy conclufion. T' nuke fome'fhew here to oppofe the G'-r-m..ms by force- of Arms, if they offer to fet ti:ir fj.>: in the' Pominions of St Pair,'and even 'to aJd cp rhe Temporal Wespon^he Spiritual Thunderbolt oc i '-,e VaticM ; but thefe are but menaces which iv ii;-m �; no effiit ; our Court being fenfible that, a Form*' ..ppofcioii, anlefs ftrongly fupported, which they cvinoc do, would but give a pretence to a Conqu-;} of that Country, which the Germans would keep ac leaft during rhe War, and that an Excomuai-c^tion would fas but flighted and laughs at. This thought proves a great mortification to this Court, who regret thole happy times, when the bare threats of the cenf-jre of the Church, tumbled down Princes froin their Thrones, and made all their Subjects forhka their Allegiance. Notwithftanding the feve-rity of the Government againft fuch, who take the liberty to talk too freely upon the prelent poftu;c of Affairs , and the fevers! Aflamnations that have been committed by the French and Spaniards, to deter peopb from fpeaking againft their i liter eft , they; continue to talk as boldfy as ever, Pafqxin and Marfnib had fotne days ago a con-eonver Cation about rhe fight of Lu%ara, with which the French and. Spanifii Minifters were very angry,' for rkofe two Friends being above the favour "of Princes, and fecure from their refentment, they talk of rhiugsas they are,withcut any refpeft to the Crown thit adorns their Head, and therefore fpoke too freely of that Action, without any .regard to the re-fpecr challenged by his Catbolick Majeuy,and gave the Honour of the day,� '-ell as the advantage of the Field of Battel, to Prince Engine of'Savojf. The Venetian Minifterihave frequent Conferences with thofe of th# Pope, and as- he has received 3 ExprefTes in lefs than a weeks time, 'tis conjectured that Prince . Eugene ha made the like compliment to the Venetians as he has done to the Legate of Ferrara. Mantua, Sept. sa. Notwithstanding the real and pretended advantages the King -of Spain has obtained this Campaign over the Impen'aliits, this City is likely to be actually blocked up this Winter as it was lift, and �ven reduced to greater {heights. Otir Duk;, who has not a mind to be once more locked up in his Palace and to be difturbed every fcighr, intends, to pals this Winter pirtly at Guzal, and pirtly at. Milett, and is fending away his Equipag* and Goods. The departure of our Duke makes our Inhabitants very un'tfafie, for his prefence prevented t'ieufual infdlences of a numerous Garrifon ; and to avoid the lame;-r>ey are retiring into the- Venetian Territories wi-h their beft effects, which will �rove a greatlof. tothis City, and a' great inconven tency for rhe Troops to fuhfift in the Winder. The Ma-' giftrates btiog feriliSle of it, do whatever they" ciri . to flop that defeuion, and 'lis thought .they wiH -a^ Jaft be obliged to uCp Force as' Highnefs Jim made that (^rrer^J;his Lieurensnr, aria; given krrja the -full admjnilha|ipn. gt this Dutchy. dutiug his abijfsnce. ,.Tie- Armies grow        ./ic-!s;y , by reafon of their long contir.uar,ce-in tk$\t Camps-and out of chs detachment t^hat was letV to cov�r tfu'j City, there iv.fl.ear one third part in pur Hofai�^,:\ befidesthofe that are dead\- ,Prov;gons are ,alroa?!y, very dear, for the Country in our J^eigh hour hood' heu ing entirely/^uinedj and 'he HiilTarsbeing'pvpemal-;; ly abroad,'cis very difficult to bring us anyProvi/Ions.'
