Post Man (Newspaper) - August 6, 1802, London, Middlesex Numb, iooi A A A A And the Hiflorical Account, &c. From %t)UrfDa? Auguft 6, to fcatUtlrap. Auguft 8, 1762, Franckfort, Auguft 6. JHe Imperial Army, under the command of the King of the Romans, is coniide-rabJy reinforced fince the arrival of that Prince ; and the Attacks are fo iar advanced , that" 'tis thought Landau muii iurrender in very few days. Monlieur Catinat has reinforced the Garrifbns of Strasbur'gh, Sckhftat and other French Frontiers , whereby he is fo weakened, that he has not thoughr fit to attempt to p.ii's the Rhine, as the French' threatned at firjft, and the Paflss are fo well guarded, that they would fiud it a very difficult enterprize. The Dyet of IHitjtkovne is not come to any reiolution upon the Pio.poials made by the -Emperor's Commiffioner; and the Deputies have fignified unto him, that chey had not fufficient Inftrucrions from rjieir refpe&ive Mafteii ; but that they hid written for the lame, and expefted fpeedy Anfwers. These Is a report fioii RatUbonne, that the Ele&ors of Bavaria arid Co-UgH are treating with the Empe�or ; and they write from Cologn, that the Elector of that name has again lefufed to quit Bonn, and go for the Netherlands, as the French have fo often propofed to his Eleftor,al Highnefs. The Cantons of Switzerland are much perplexed about the Spxnijh Succeflion, for fome pf 'em are for owning the Duke of Anjou, and others refufe it, for fear of the Refentment of the Emperor, whofe Mimfter has plainly deolar'd to them, that his Matter would take that.recognition as a declaration agaifift him. The Minifter of the States General has pretented a Memorial to the Cantons on fubjeS, wherein he flieweTh them the neceflity of rheir concurring with the Emperor and his Allies, for.reducing the exorbitant Power of a Crown, which, if not oppofed in this jun&ure, will certainly eriflave the reft of Europe. Hague, Auguft ir. We hourly expeii to hear of a Battel, for the French being .advanced towards Boijle-due, 'tis .believed they .cannot go back without fighting;, the thei Country, being full of MoraiTss and little Rivers, wi)l pejhaps  favour. their Retreat. Their Army has b�en reinforced by the Troops of the -Alarqais of' Bedmar and other Betathrnenf*, but yen the Confederates are fuperior in number. The march of the French Army into the Mayrie ofjiaifle-due has caufed here a> great furprize, and people cannot dive into their defigm, but few .days will dif-" caver whether they had any good reafons for it. Letters from. Bard �iy, that the BiJhop of Orange has obtain'd fevere orders of the French King agai�ft the Pr.oseftjnCsof that Principality, notwithstanding , the opposition of the Priace .of. Conti; and there is no doubt but thePerfe.cution, will be renewed there with as much fevtriry as ever. 'Tis fajd that the Popifh Clergy of that Principality are discharged of the yearly pa.y,menc of 55.00 Livres to the Proteftant 'Min.ifters, which.jthey.ufed in confideration ef.t.he Tyt,h�s .thsy received tha Protelhnrs. They, tell us alio, that the Temple is to be fliut.up, ,and that a Declaration is Co. be publilbed ..there, re-vSUi'ing tlje Inhabitants to turn Roman Cjtholicks, cr quit their Country by a certain time. Several Boats, loaded with . Artj.lUry and.. Axaraoniuan_ate lentjcp Crave to be Employed in the .Siege of fbf/o.and ^he Troops from Mulheim and Keyferwasrt are marching to inveft that place. Hamburg, Auguft 8. Sjnce the arrival of the Cardinal Prim ire and other Grandees of Poland at Dtmt-*itk, Letters fratb thenee have mentioned feveral particulars of the Conferences between the Duke of Holflein Gottor? arid the Swedifli Minifters, and th� Primate, in order to hhd ou: fume expedient for bringing to an amicable end the War betweea ihi Kings of Sweden and Poland. Notwithstanding alL the expedients were rejected, and that the Parties dp notfeem inclined to give ear thereunto, till 'fheir. ^ Forces are more weakened.and that therefore-'thfey be made fenfible that Peace is to be preferred to ah Uncertain War, it will not be amifs to incert here one of the Propofals, which; if we may depend upon what they write from Dantzick, was the1 leaft excepted againft by the Parties. The Primate having by Letters and word of Mouth fignified to the-King of Sweden, that the Propofal made by his Miniftetsfor Dethroning his Polifh Majefty, had been generally rejected with indignation by the Poles, 'tis faid the King of Sweden would net have infilled �n it,and that the following expedient was calculated upon that fuppeficion. 1. ' That for removing all the fears and ' jealoufies of a fecond Invafion of the Territories of � Swedenby the of Poland, without thecorifenc ' of the Republick, his Polifh Majefty ftall re/ign, ' his Eleftoral Dignity to his Son, for whom Admi-' niftrators mail be chofen out of the Hpufe ' of Saxonj, or elfe the Queen (hall be .appoint-. ' ed Regent with a Council , rill that young ' Piince comes of Age. x. That the Kirrg>of Poland ' and the Repuolick fliall renew the Treaty of Qlivd -with Sweden. 3. That the King of Polandbeing no ' longer Eleflor of Saxoiiy, and hiring resigned all ' his Titles whatfoever, and retained only the Royal . 'Dignity of, King of Poland, the Republick fhaH -be ' anfwerable for whatever he undertakes "for "the fu-' ture againft Swedm. 4, That for fatisfatltion " of 'the great charges the King of Swedfn- has 1 been -at ' by reafon of this War, the King and Republick of ' PolandfhiU for ever yield and make over unto the 'Crown of Sweden, that Trail: of Liftd called (he; ' Pilijk Livonia, alongthe Duina; which River wilt ' become thus the Boundary of the two Spates. '5. That the Czar of Mujcovy having fomented this 'War, and without any provocation invaded the ' Territories of Sweden, the Republick^ of Polend Hall ' declare War againlr him, and fend jeooo men' 'to aftagainftthe Mufctvites, in-conjanftion with ' Sweden -r and that Sntolensko fliall be 1 educed and-re-' ffored to theReptabJick 6th and laftlyVthat.Cctth-' miflioners fliall be appointed on both fides t� fettle ' the Limits, and determine other fmall dilputes co^-' cerning that point, in order to prevent all- oc* ' cafien of quarrels between thofe two Nations. Ho.w far this Prppoial was accepted by the Parties, and what is chiefly obje&ed agaipft^ it?we cannot tell,for things of that nature being privately manag'd, repoitJ are not.altogeiher to fa*, depended upon, and one ovght to be certain,in the firft place, that fuch a Scheme as this was propofed , to the Parties, before he gives credit to what is reported about ch� objections nude againft it. Letters from Stockholm .mention the very fame propofal,which is lookt upon by1 many as a confirmation that foriiethingUjike this was jdebat?d between the Cardinal Prirftale arid the /Winffters of SsiW�. The loft of theSite^} irt thfcBatter that was fbtfght on the tpth pa'ft, db'es hot appear fo _gr,ea.C_as it was reported, and 'tis owned..mat the Swedes have loir very rear as many Men as the Saxons. 'Tis confirmed from all parts, that the Duke of Holjlein Gonorp is dead of the Wounds he receiv'd in that Engagement. London, Auguft 8.
