Post Man (Newspaper) - June 27, 1802, London, Middlesex Numb, 9&5 Y Y Y And the Hiftorieal Account, dTc. Fromyjjem!>urg, to reinforce the Troops polled there for fecuring that P afs, which is the only one whereby the French may relieve Landau on the fide of Alf*te"; and as we have 7coo men there with {time Artillery; 'tis believed the French will not attempt our Lines on that fide. The Elector of Mcntz has fent aooopoot arid 503 Hoifeto joyn the Imperial Army, and the Landgrave of tiefli D^rmftit, the Bifhop of Wwtzburg, and forrie other Princes are likewife fending Troopato the Camp. The Train of Artillery deligned for that Siege conftits of 60 pieces of Cannon 14 Pounders, 30.4? Pounders, with u\s ihartly expeftsdfron Vienna, and out M^jiitrares m�ke preparations to receive his M^'efty with all poflible Magnificence. Our Letters from Infpruck and Trent lay, chat Prince E-tgem of Stiity continues near Mtntui, and chat his ?*mp is Co well fo.-rih-d, tint the French do not think Fit to attack bkri ; but are preparing to Behsge Berztllo, and recoverGzz'lala and MlranMt, whereby they hope to cut off"the Provi.ions of the Lnperia-Tifrs, and oblige ttiem fu quit the n.'ighbourhocd of Mantua.

The Campaign of the Duke oc Burgundy is the great fubjeftofall Converfations, but at trie fame'time chat every body endeavours to magnifie the Utaiery of that Prince, they take the Liberty to pafs very le-vere Reflections on die conduct of the Marefchaj of Baufflert, who, as ihey fay, has not improved to the Kings advantage, the favourable opportunity, the length of the Siege of Keyjerwaert gave him, and has amufed himfelf with ruining the Country oiClecvet, inilead of belleging Grave, ot any other Dutch Town, which would have fjved Kaffenoa'.rt. The Elector of Ctlogn has complained to me King againft the Capitulation of that place, and tijat the Govef-nour mould have inlifted on the razing of tile Fortifications; but we don't know what aut'wer our Minifters tave returned; and norwithfbnding that Prince knows that rhe Allies had taken that reibluti-* on before hand, he feems to have undeniabl* reafons to complain againlt u�, forbad we regarded the In-tereft of that Prince, Mondeuv BlAtisvUie would have demanded the quite contrary :hing,or at leaft would not have made it a part of the Articles of Capttalati* on. This Court feems very much concerned for Landau, for noswithftanding the place is ftrong, and defendedby a brave Govemour, yet thej are fen-fible that the Garrifon being weak, and wanting'i'e-veral neceiTaries, they c?nnoc hold out Jong enough to g'ive us time to get a fufficient Army to relieve it. The Council of Finances is daily taken up about Wiys arid means to rails Money, tor the Kings charges increasing everyday, the Funds wbrck were provided for, do not picve iufSciertt^ amd iiew Taxes muit be laid upon the People. They ralje of creating great numbers of new places in the Kixig-dom.and to oblige liich Perfons as ars known to be Money'd Men to buy the fame. They are obliged to follow rhe fame method for difpolvng of the 20c. Titles of Nobilicy,which the King has. lately expos'i to fale. Hague, Jane 30. On $%ni�j hit a great Council of War was held here in the prcfence of the King of Pruflix and the Ministers of the Emperor and England; and the Earl of A'-hlone, General Dofat and fevera/ other Officers of note came hither for that purppfo ; but rhe refolutions taken therein are kept ftill very private , tho there is no doubt but they have concerted meafures for {obliging the Duke of Burgundy "to retire into the Spanijb Provinces. The Earl, of Athlme is returned to Nimegbenl, u-here our Forces difperfed along the Rhine and the Waal, are marching to form the Gtand Atmy, which is to act againft the Duke of Burgundy. They tell us, that another Army is to be formed in the neighbourhood of Cohgtt, and that they will make an in-vafion into the Dutchy of Luxemburg; but time will difcover the truth of it. The Baroift of Lelienrm, Ambalfidor of Sweden, beiog fenfible, that he is grown fufpicious to the Minilters of the Allies, and that theEnsmies of Sweden have fpread feveral reports in thefe Provinces and abroad, as if h>s s&edijb Ma-jeity was in Alb'ance with frana; we hear rhac Miniiter intenids to prefenr, . or. has already prefented a Meraorial to contradict thfife reports, and juftife his own conduct in particular ; but if the-laft advices �rem Poiand prove true, there is no need of any fuch Apology, and a fudden Peace in the Noi'th wili.sonvince �fl ttlt World of die; con-fcary- ;
