Post Man (Newspaper) - July 4, 1802, London, Middlesex And the Historic** Account, &c. From ^attttHay July 4, to ^ngCDap July 7, 1702. Bsr/('�, July 4 Everal Expreffes are arrived here from War. faw, with an account of the progrefs or' che Negotiations between the Cardinal Primate and the Swedifn Minifters. The Tydings i^-**- we received fome days ago were very favourable,and gave us hopes of a hidden Peace; bur the Leccers we received yefterday re]l us, that rhs fAd Negotiations are entirely broke off, and that the King of Sweden has declared to the Cardinal, that he is refolded to march directly to Cracov,' and purfue the King of Poland. The Primate has ufed all pof-iible endeavours to perfwade rhe.Duke of Holjlein to I joyn his interefts with his, for procuring a recon-[ citation between their Poiifh and Swedifh Majefties, and reprefented the ill corifequences of the prolecuri-on of this War, there being |lo likelihood that is many Princes, relared by blood and intereft with the King of Poland, willfuffer him to be deprived of his Crown, but theft considerations have had no good �ffo&, and the King of Sweden is directly marching to Craciva, and Count GtuldenSern, who commands in chief the Swedifb. Troops in Pomerania, has fent to acquaint our Regency, that this Court ought to no umbrage of his marching through our Territories for Poland, and given aiTurance th at he will keep hi* Forces under to ftrici a difcipline,that the Sut>jeQ:s of his prujfsan Ma jetty (hall receive no prejudice thereby. The Saxon Troops are arrived in the Neighbourhood of Crania, but our laft Letters from thence fay, that the King of Poland is advifed to retire from theace upon the approach of the Swede r,and*aot to run the rifque of a doubtful Battel with an Enemy, whofc Army muft needs perifb. without Fighting, if they advance further iato the Country, arid will be in danger to bs intercepted in their retreat by the Poiifh Nobilirv, who for th* moft oar; declare for their Prince. They continue to rail* Men in Saxony for the defence of thar Electorate, or for affiitingthe King of Poland, and'tis faid the Emperor is to aflift him with fome Troops that are on thac vertue nf the late Treaties concluded between thofe two Princes.Our Letters from the Hjj�i tell us, that the King of Pruflia is arrived there, and intends to tefurn to this place by the latter end cffchis Month. ' Franckftr:, July 6. The King of the Romans is ex-peSed here next week, and area: preparations are making tor his Reception. The Siege of Landau is cifrisd on with very good fuccefs, and they write tVuiii the Cam? that they lofe very few Men. Several- Imperial Regiments are marching for the Army, aad the Troops of l!- feeing the Pertuguefe exclaim againft the Alliance ef their King with us 2nd Spain. All things continue very quiet in Spain, notwithitanding the abiencp of -the King, but Cardinal Portocarrtro his violent fuf-picions, that th-i Emperor has a great party in the Kingdom, who will fhew therafelves as foon as they� fee any power able to protect them. Out lift advices from Italy fay, that Prince Eugene of Savoy fakes all pcffiblc precautions for fecuring his Communis cation with Germany, by the Territories ai'Yenics, and therefore is fortifying Ojiilia on the Pi, which fecuies his retreat that way, by the Canal Bianco and t&e jidigt, and facilitates the coming uo of hisPro-viilons from Msfola, and oth#r parts of the- Adriatick. Sea. The Siege of Benello is certainly sefcTved up-" ' on, tho fevewl Generals are of a different dpiriion, and have reprefented that the place being ftrong by its fcituation, and provided with all neceffaries for a vigorous defence, our Array will fpend almoft all the Summer fotake it.which will give time.tothe'' Emperor to fead reinforcements to Pr. �ugene,to enable him to act offenfively,wh�n ourForces are weak-ned byrhat Siege and Mortality, as he did laft .year, Thofe Generals were of opinion to make all imaginable effbtts, to cut off the PrOvifions of Prince Eugene, to obliga him to quit the Mmtuan, but their advice appears no lefs impracticable and difficult- than that which they oppofed. The Duke of Random being informed, that a Party of 400. GmnanHod'e have pafTed the Mincio at Borghem, and continued their march rhro the Country of Breftia towards the. Adda, and judging they can have no other defign, than to furptixe r,he King of Spaii, feveral detacbV ments have been fifafout in isueft of them, and rite Governor of Cremoum has fent 1000 Horfe to inior-cept rhem, and cover the march of his Cathoiick Majefty from Milan to that place.The Vtvctiani begin to be very uneafy at the preparations of thelmperia-lifts on the Coafts of Ipia, where they fit out fever a 1  Ships to cruize upon the Spanifh Frjgots chat have been fome time in that Gulph, and as'tis given out, that the Emperor has takea into bis fervice a confide-nble number of Englifh and Dutch to command his Shipsmd teach his Subjeflrs theNavigation,thef�Kn-ans are afraid the Imperialiftsjnay in time to come difpute with (hem fhe Empire of the Adriatick Sea. Hague, July 11. Letters from Middleburgb in Zealand, confirm the taking of one of our Men of War called the Unicorn, by the French Galleys that ate at Ofttnd, and the States having taken into their confi-derarion, that thofe Galleys may do a great deal of mifchief,and take fome of ourFrigob in a calm,Gene* Coborn is ordered to puc fome Tnoopson boardthe Men of War appointed to cruize upon the Coa|% ot Flanders, which willfecure them againft the faid Galleys, in cafe of any furprize in a time of calm.'
