Post Man (Newspaper) - February 25, 1801, London, Middlesex fromXttCfW February 25, to February 27,1701. keme, February M. "�V*He Foreign Minifters rellding here have, frequent Conferences with our Mmifiers ofState.on the prefent jun&ure ofAffairs, and the Kwifr/dTjAmbaffador has had with-�V. in thefe few days two long Audiences of the Hope, on the fame fubjeft.This Court feems very ureafy and efpeciiliy lince the FrenchKing hasrefufed the Mediation of the Pope, and declared that he had no manner of Quarrel with the EmpeTor, but that if 3ny Prince offered to difpute the Title,of the prefent King of Spa in, and difhirb him in the^pofleffion of his Dominions, he wiilaffift him with alfjiis Forces. The ancient Bulls of the Inveftiture ef the Kingdoms of Naples and Sicily, have been examined in a Congregation of State in the pfefence of the Pope, but we do not hear that any refolution has been taken therein, and tills Court does not think fit to declare their mind till they fee a more favourable jun&ure. The Pope has ordered fome new Levies, and the "Italian Princes take the fame meafures ; but whether they will declare for or againfr the Emperor, time nauft difcover, tho it feems moft probable, that if they were not inclined for his I rpperial Majefty, they would declare againft him before his Troops are in Italy. Cardinal Meleni has departed this life, fb that there is a fixth vacancy in the Sacred Colledge. Milan, February ij. The 17-Batallions lately arrived from France, are quartered at Como, Pavit, Cremona, Lodi, Amna, Pixdghettone, Sabiontda, Vahnza, Tor-tona, Cazal Maggitre, Martara and Carrdvagit. We expert in few days fevetal Squadrons of Horfe and Dragoons, an Exprefs from Turtn having brought advice that they are arrived in Piedmont. Count Thejft. continues his conferences with our Governour, about the lecurity of this Dutchy, and they talk of erejf&ing feveral fmall Forts on our Frontiers, to render the entrance into thisCountry more difficult. That French General has demanded of the Council iooooo Livres for fome new Works, which hethinks neceflary to be made, to this place. He defired alfo ieveral Pieces of Cannon of Dw Ferdinand* Baldez., Governour of our Cafile, who refuted Hie fame, and faid, that as long as there wai a King on the Spanijh Throne, he would cbey his orders, and no body's elfe. Our Governour has received Bills of Exchange from Madrid for 50000 Scudi, and advice that the Governour of Sicily isorder-ed'to remit the fame fumm,and the Viceroy of Naples iooocotnore. Notwithstanding the great care that the Government takes to fupprefs the party of the Emperor, a great, number of psople feem inclined to his Intereft, and efpecially tho Clergy, who fake more liberty than others, and do openly fpeak in his behalf. Their example'anduifcourfe being ofa dangerous con-fequence, the Council has (ignified to the Priors of ieveral Convents, fhit if rbe Monks do not keep within the bounds of the refpeft and allegiance they owe to his Majefty Philip the V. the Governour will'be compelled to caule fome of them ro be impaled in their Canonical Cloaths, to deter others from the like praftice. Several other Batallicns are expected from France at Final, and we hear a Camp is ro be formed on our Frontiers \n the beginning of the Spring. V'enna, February 19.An Exprefs is arrived here with 2dvice that the French Troops have tsjeen poiieffion of the Spiinijh Netherlands, whereupon an Exprefs has been dil;>archeJ with new inftruitions to Count Goes, O'Jr Em'oy at the Hague. Major Genera] Hcrmenfieyn is to let out to morrow for Tyol, to have a watchful eye on the motions of the French in rhe Milanese, this Courc beir-g informed rhat Count Thijfe, who com-rDands rhofe Troops, 2nd the MaTquels de los Balltaze/ have viewed incognita our Frontiers an that !ide. Thjt General is alfo ordered to poft the 8000 men that are1 already in that Country, in iiich places as he �hall> thinkmoft convenient for f4cilitsitiAg the execution of the defigns of his Imperial Majeft/, who continues refblved to feud an Army of 37000 men into Italy. Tis fa;^ rhe 80C0 already meahoned are to fecure a pais. That General Officer is alfo ordered to take a narrow view of the Magazines, to know whether the account given by the Commiuioners of ProviftonJ is to be depended upon. Two^*�/yh.Courri=rs, 1 from Prince Vaudtmont, and rhe orber from Madrid, with difparches for the Spanijji AmbafTador residing her and then to return home. We hear likewife, &hat his Elefloral Highnefs will fhortly take a turn into his own Country, and that he is likely to return no more into rhe Netherlands. The Chapter of Liege intends to be Neuter in this affair, and have lent a Project relating to their Neutrality to rhe Emperor, the French King and the States General. Some French Troops ate marching for the Spavijh Gel-derland, and we hear there are already 46000 men of that Nation in the Spmijh Countries, and that the* Spaniards raife 30000 men of their own, at the charge of rhe French King. 'Hamburg, March 1. The rileftor of Kmniver and the Duke of Zftfare augmenting their Tioops both Horfe and Foot with lo men in each Troop and Com^ pany,and the Duke of Holfiein is railing twoRegimenfs of loot and one of Hfri'e.
