Post Man (Newspaper) - January 2, 1801, London, Middlesex F F F Numb. 8jI And the Historical Account;, &c. From Xljlltfeay January 2, to Saturday January 4,1761. Madrid, December 15. THe Duke of Harcourt, AmbafTador of France, arrived here the 13th inftant, and the fame day had a long Conference with Cardinal Portuarero. He had the next day a private Audience of the Queen, anil was vifited by a great number of per-fons of Quality. The new King has been proclaimed throughout this Kingdom, with unufuaJ iblemnifies, and that Prinze is expected herewith all the iiHpj-rience imaginable, the People being generally per-fwadej, that our Crown will recover under the Reign of his Majsfty, its former fplendour. The Regiment of German Hflrfe, which was quartered at Toledo is lent to Catalonia, and the Regents have refolved to fend fome Spanijb Troops from that Province into the Mihntfe, and the Netherlands. The Queen conrinue^ frill in the Palace, but is to remove before rhs Kings arrival.They write from Cadiz, that on the 15til paft, a Ship arrived there with 90 Maffs molt of 'em being 60 or 70 foot long, which are lit for the biggeit Ships. They have been cut down in the Mountains of Navarr, and brought to the mourh of the Ebro, by means of fome other Rivers fa'ling thereinto, and they tell us, that they hope to have no occalion for the future of any Malts from the North, which coft the Spaniards a world of money. Rome, December 21. The Pope held a publick Conllftory on the 18th inftant, and gave the Hats to the Cardinals of Lemburg and Noialles. The Prince of Monaco, AmbaiTbdor of France, had audience of the Pope on the iich iniTant, and on the 19th gave the Order of the' Holy Gboft to the Princes Alexander and Ctnftantine Sobielski, Sons to the late King of Poland, The fame day that Minifter entertained molt magnificently (everal Frencfi and Spavijb Cardinals, and other Perfons of Quality, upon account of the Birth day of the new King of Spain. The Counts Lcmbarg, Ambaflador of the Emperor, has defired the Pope irithe name, of the Emperor, not to.give the InvefHturc of'Naples and Sicily to the Duke of An-jou, but the French and Spanijh Factions give out, that his Holinefs anfwered, that he could not refufe it, feeing that Prince was called to the Throne of Spain by the hte King,, and-with -die Univerfal approbation of the I'eopkv They add, that the Pope has written to.the 'Venetians, to exhort them to refufe pafl}�� to fhelmperialifts,and allure them of a fpeedy affirmance frprjjr hfinfe^f and other Irattav Princes, if tbey attempt to take/hc fame by force. The Pope has given leivp .to the Cardinals, who were come to the Conclave to return home ; but we hear trie Cardinal d* Efirees, is appointed by the French Kjng, to go into feveral Cotms of Italy ^ about fome Negotiations of the higheft importance. The French and Spaniards live in great crjffefpbndence together, and People cannot But admire; that the-Antipathy whkh appeared between thole two Nations, fhould have in an inftaoljfvanifliedaway. P.�m, January 8. 'Our Letters from Madrid confirm, that the Regency of Spain have tefbtyed tp-ipuc their Monarchy under the protection of the moft Chriftinn King, and defire hint to accept the Govern^ ro?tu of all the Dominions belonging to that Crown* and 'tis laid that in die Letter they have wtitteri a-bout it to his Majefty, they declare, that if any Go-vernour fhall refiife or delay to obey his orders upon any pretence whatsoever, he Qiall be immediately turned out. This unexpected requefl of the Regents of Spain, has occafioned frequent Councils here, and 'tis laid, that it has not been thought fit to accept idir/ rectly the Government of Spain, for fear of giving the Emperor too favourable a pretence of alarming the reft of Europe, and reviving th- Jea'oufies they formerly entertained of our afpiring to an univerfal Monarchy. The King, has returned an anfwer to the Regents, fignifymg unto them, that they are fo wife, that thay did not want that he ftiouid give a-ny orders in the Dominions of his Grandfon, and that he deiired them to fend directions to the Governors of their Provinces, that in cafe they want Troops, Provilions and Am munitions, they may give notice thereof to the Gove?nburs of the frontiers of the French Dominions, who have orders to fupply them immediately with whatever they (rand in need, of. The Spaniards having nothing to fear in Catatonia, we hear they fend 3 50oHorl'e iflio the Hcher-lands, which will march through this Kingdom, and will be quartered as the Kings Troops. An Exprefj from the Hague has brought advice, that the Count de Briord, our Ambaflador, has had publick audience of the States General, wherein he has aflured them, that nothing fhall be wanting on 'his Majeftys part for maintaining the Peace of Etiropa However as the States have not yet returned any poflnve anfwer-to the Kings Lettet, concerning the accepf.non of the Will of the late King of Spain, our Ambciflad'or is ordered to make prefling inftances for rhe fame; and make unto them fome new PropofaH for ftmoy-ing all the Jealoufies they may entertain of bill" de" figns. Notwithftanding that Negofiar�M* y our Court perfifts in their resolution of having the Dutcfi Troops out of the Spanijh Frontiers, and it will prbve a difficult matter to find out a medium to rhe fatis-fadtion of all Parties. This feems at prefect the moft important pointin agitation. They write front Madrid,"that they have found in the Archive? a Trea� ty between Charles the V. and his ftrothct Ftrdinarii the I. wherein the latter, in confiderationof the ceflion made unto him of the Empire, yields and renounces for ever the Invefliture and Homage of the Dutchy of MiUn in favour of Philip II Son to Charles the V. his Nephew, and his male or female Porterity. They make a great noife of that pretended Treaty, which after all is bur a trifle, rhe Confti-tutions of the Empire being luch that no Emperor pn alienate the Rights and Prerogatives thereof, un-lefs it be by the confent of the whale Empire. They tell us alfo, tHat they have found in the Box of thd late King, "a. Project of a Treaty, whereby it appears that the King defigned ro  pur the Emperor iri pofleflion of the Kingdom ol Naples and the Dutchy pi Milan, had not death prevented it,,. This agrees lo very ill with the Teftament of that Prince, that many will be apt to "be confirmed in-the fufpicion thiy" entertained before about the validity thereof. The Regents hire allowed the Duke of Harcourt rh e third , place in their Aflembly, and have, is 'tis fa-d, dej fired that the Duke of Beauviliiert may att�nd this new King i to aflift him with his advice in the be-girinjrtfc of bis Reigh.* The Marvels BarteH^ ;
