The Duke of Mtdena, �whom it belongs, refilled as long is ever he could to admit the Imperial Troops thereinto, but Prince Eugene h.?vjng threatned to put his Country under Contrition, that Prince has thought it his inreiert to give up that place, which being fituated on the Po, on the confines of the Mtdmeie, Mantmn, Parmezan and Crtmenuu, will prove very advantageous for the farther execution of our deligns.Prince Eugene or Savof having viewed the Fortifications of that place, fent an Officer to the Duke of Parma, to defire him to give Winter quarters in his' Country to parr of the Imperial Force*, but that Prince has excufed himfelf and declared, that being a Vaffal of the Holy See, he could not confent to what was delired of him withouc the Confent of the Pope. Prince Eugene being notfatis-lied u-ith this tnftrer, has ordered a- detachment of Horfe and Foot under the Command of the young Prince aEPsudamnt to take Winter quarters in the Dutchy of Parma, and'tis thought they will take poiTeulm of the Capital City. General Vaufoitne is marching with a confiderable detachment through the Dutchies of Parma and Placsntia, towards the Tor'tu:zt and Attexandrim, toprevenr,as 'tis faid,the conjunction of the Reinforcement* the Maiefchal of Vdlero* expeds from Pr**ce with their main Army, which continues in the Cremciuze, the fwelling or* fhe Pt having hindered their fending any Troops on this i:Je to oppofe out defigns. The French Gar-rifon in Mantua being in great ftrefs for Fornge.fent fome days ago a detachment of 500 Horfe and as many Foot towards Marmiroli to endeavour to get fome Provtfions and Forrage, but 60 Cuiraftfers of Obelli fell upon them with fuch fury, that the E-nenry was put in conf u on and retired into Mautaa, having hid jo Men wounded, according to the report of fome deferterj, but we do not know what number they loft upon the fpot. Thofe deferterr tell us alfo, that the confufion was very great in Mantua, and that' the whole Garrifon, Horfe and Foot was drawn up, being afraid that their Men were purfued by a great body of the Germans. Tis Taid that the Duke of Mantua has offered fome pro-pofals for delivering np his Capital City, and that Count Thefit who Commands therein confines to it, for preferring that Garrifon and that of Gtito, which muft needs be obliged to furrender in a fliart time Prifontes of War, it being irapoffible far the French tm relievetbem. They continue to fay that Prince Eugent intends to fend a detachment to Nafles, but the rainy weather makes the Roads in a manner unpayable.
