   Post Man (Newspaper) - October 15, 1802, London, Middlesex                                Nttmb;   1029  CC'C C $ofc 0m And the Hiftorical Account, arc. From X^UrfDap Odober i 5, to �>atWDap O&ober 17, 1702, Turin, Septemb. 30. LEtters from the French Army at Luzara tell as, that toe King ofspainis upon hie deparoire for where he intends to continue hat three or four days,.and then let out for Spain, Tis faid, his Catholick Majerty will go through this place; but this is not yet very certain, becaufe he would be obliged to fpend Corns days in this Court, which might be prejudicial to his affairs, which require his prefence at M*drid. They write from the Camp, thai hede-fign'd at firft to go away the aath inftant, but put it off till the ad oiOBobtr, upon Tome intelligence -that' Prince lucent would be necefllcared .to,decamp b-fore that rime; but this is not likely ?Q:happen : ani chat Prince, who had boafted to beat the German* ou of Italy this Campaign, and to avenge himfelf of Prince Eugene, who had fb audacioufly attacked hrm in his Carnp, to ufe his own expreffions, is fpre'd to return to tdadrid, without having pot into execution any of his Piojtcts. Notwithstanding what the French have pabjifnedof the Actionnear Luzara, the King of Spain is not fatisfied with iti for, akho it were true rhat th� Gffluw loft as many men as the French, yet it cannot be denyed that the numerous Army of the latter gave ground, before an Enemy who was very inferiout in number, and fo that Prince Eugene hid all the honour of the day. Letters from Milan bring us furprizing advice, for they write that a Party of Imperialijh carae fome days ago before that plice, and that fa of 'em rid into the Town Sworn in hand, crying Long live the Emperor. They publickly drank at a Tavern the Health of the Emperor, and having paid for their Wine, retired without any oppofidon, or committing any diforder, through the- Gate c lied Tijjma, of which the reft of their men had taker- polfeffion. The fame Party has croffed alrnoft all the Milanese, having made a march of near 100 mile, ; and as molt of the Nobility were at their Country Seats, they have got a prodigious fumm of Money Our Troops in the fetvice of Spain irethortly expected home, and the French Army is preparing to go into tneir Winter quarters, iofomuch that this Campaign is likely to have the fame end as the former. Oar Duke and the Marefchal aiWUtny, having continued about 2 months in fight of Prince Eugene near Ponte Oglio, were forced to decamp, and the King of Spain and the Duke of Vandme having been as long about Lmara, aruft do the fame, and ccncJude their Campaign, when their Enemies are preparing to begin theirs. Our Duke received a difgracein attacking Prince Eugene at Chiari, and the King of Spain has received a greater one, in being attacked in nis own Camp near Utx.nra. 'Tis faid his Royal Highnefs is to augment his Troops this Winter, and that the French are to reinforce theirs in Italy, where the Gtrmtms will be more numerous than this Campaign. Brufelt, October 15. The march of the Confederate Army to befiege the Cittadel of Liege, and the retreat of the French within the Lines, cauks a great conk fternjtron in thefe parts', where rhe Trench boa/red Ibrne few days ago, that they would right the Enemy if fbey offVred to attack that place. The Marquis of Xtmenes was marched with fo much precipitation with Tfoops from Fhnders to joyn MonfieurBM^ferV, that it give iome probability to what the French pub-liQied of their deflg.i. They write from Landtn, that " htttwithltandiiig their retreat, they talk ft ill of a Battel, and that (he Govcrnour of the Citadel of Li$go hu been allured of being relieved, if he' could but hold out y or  great a joy to our Merchants as People expected ; and they feem afraid, that the King of Spain, who is reduced to great freights for want of Money, will by the advice of his Grand father feizti due Treafare, and promifsfo repay the fame . after the end of the Wa r. If this happens, as they threaten us with from Path, our' Trading Cities ate undone, and the Government muft,expect in ih� furrettion in Spain, for it being the cuftom in that Country, for the Grandees to aflign the payment �f their Debts upon the return of the Gallions and Plate Fleet, they muft expect no credit, without which* they caanc-t live, if the King fiexes the Flota. They write from Vtnh m&Rurmmde, that the Deputies of rhe States General have continued moft of the Magistrates in their places, and the Officers employed for collecting the publick Revenues, and that the Inhabitants are very much pleafed with the change of Maflers, the French having ufed them with great fevaiicies, according to the cuftom of their owa Country.  They talk of railing fome Spanifh Regiments this Winter, tho thofe we railed laft year are fo weakned, that the Officers will hardly have; time enough to recruit them before the Spring. Amfterdam, OSober 16. Our Raffia Fleet is hourly expected in our Harbours, having been discovered fome days ago not far from our Coafts. The Ships fitted out hy our Admiralty are ready to put to Sea, ind we are affined that fome Land Forces will b� put on board; The flare of the War for the next Campaign is not yet fixed, buc we hear the Council of State has propofed an augmentation of 16000 men beftdes recruits, to which all the Provinces will doubtlefs give their content, the happy experience of this Glorious Campaign having convinced us, that a great fuperiority of Forces will bring this War to a ipeedy conclufion. Our advices from Bantzick talk fo confidently of a. Peace between the Kings of Svedm and Poland, that we hope {hortly to hear that the fame is as good as concluded,' which would be welcome hews to this City,, which is fo nearly concerned in that affair, by rcaibn of their Commerce in Livonia.
