Ndmb 98? Y Y y ?t)r $oft 01an; And the Hidoripl Account, &c. From Xlietoa? June 50, to .ICQtttfbjftp July 2, 1701. Promtht Imperial Army at Mpntanera, June 19. ON the 1 yth inflant the Enemy fired upon our Camp from break of day till night with 12 pieces of heavy Can-, non.rhat we�s potted on the other fide of tie Late of M��uj� ; but with fo little efFefi:, that we had not above 20 men killed Or wounded however, Prince Eugene thought fit to remove his Head Quarters from Curtattne to Mwta~ nara, and 2 Regiments that were expefed to the lire or the Enemy were pofted in another place, which obliged the French to withdraw their lotteries. They came the 17th to take aviewvofour Bridges on the Mniio, but our Men that were pofted in a Redoubt that covers the fame, having fired upon them,, they retired. We have advice, that the Duke of Asjtu is arrived at Paniia, and* is Suddenly expected in the French Army, after which they give out that they wffj undertake the Siege cf fftrielk. In the niean rime" Prince Eugene fakes aH poffible precautions for the fecuriry of that Eortrefs, and has formed a Camp under the Cannon thereof in a very advantageous Poft, which will render the approaches of the French very difficult. The place is in a very gootl pofture of defence, for befidesthe ftrongficua-tion, we hive corifiderably 'enlarged the Fortifications. . The Duke of Sofioy has nor attended the Duke of Anjou to Milan, but waited on him at Aquina Mont-fertat, and accompanied him for fome miles between that place and Pvdit,T and then returned to Turin. The French have alrrioft perfected their Intrench-raents, and tfiey Teem refblved to continue in their Camp to oBferve our Army, while the Spanifh. Troops and a detachment of the French and the S�-voyards,' carry pn the Siege of Ber&llo. Out Spies bring advice that they fit out with all fpeed their-VefTels at Cremona and Pavia ; and the Governour of Serzello is railing Batteries upon the Angle form'd by the River Lettt.it, which falls into the Po. near that Fortrefs, in b'rder to fink thofe VeflTels, in cafe they attempt to pafs by that place to infult out Bridges. I fenici, Jani 2j. Our tetters front Rome fay, thar the Imperial Ambiuador is returned th:re, and that Cardinal Oftohni and fome.others have happily prevented an open rapture between the Emperor and the Pope. The JjCuig of Spain has appointed Prince Bor^heft his Aaibaflador extraordinary fo, the Pope, and he defigns to appear on that occafion with art ttnafaal magmficeace.) Notwithttandingthefe compliments, and the psefling inftmces of.the French a*nd Spanifli Factions, the Pope perfifts in, hisrefolu-tionnotto grant the Inveft'tture of Naples, till the Sword has decided the Title of the parties prerend-itig to it ; but thf King of Spain fcetris to care little for-that formality; feaWhg effectually fecured that Kingdom, by p&tring'French Troops into all the ForFrefles, removing the.^Ne*fo/jV�� Forces into the MiUntew, and fecuring feveraV Persons of Note fuf-.ps�Ud to be ih'tne^EhipetOTs Intereft. -They write fraovthence, thit a'rie w Confpiacy 'was.'difcovered ;fbon after che departure jof the Kifrg'pf'Spm'n, or at leajft'a P/oc pretended to. colour the feiiirrg of the Dak* of iJoyit'CaMff*;*he Prince.-of Torino, of the -Houfe of CarrJKiali.lixe prince ol Trtbigaacio, the 'Abbot of Papaco:d*i both bf the Hottfe of Pelayna, Don Dominica dt Lima, ahd^feveval other Perfons of Quality,.

They continue in their former Polls, and .the Cannonading and Bombarding of the Retrench-meats and Redoubt* of tbi Girmans by the French, ias proved of no eff . The French fecm tefolved to ilefiege Berzelk, in order to oblige Prince Eugene to retire, which they hope to effect by cutting oft his Communication with the Modeqeze. A vafrquan* riry of Corn and other Provifions are brought to Me* tola from Triefte, and other parts of Iftria, for the ufe 6f the Imperial Army. An Expreis from Rom has brought advice, that fevera' Cottrtiets were arrived from UfapUt, with an account of the Confpira-cy-djfeovered there, and that great numbers of People Vere in Arms in the Province of Abbruz.&>, declaring for the Emperor; bur'thefe particulars want confirmation, tho 'tis certain thaHhe ptefence of the King of Spain has increafed the diffmisfaSion of the ' Neapolitans. proxy the Imperial Camp before Landau, June 29;, Nothing remarkable happened fince the opening of the Trenches till the 2 yth, when the Enemy rf*atfe aSaily with 12'pHprfe and fome Grenardeers, ind artacked our advance'd Guards, but the P^alitine R%-;fl giment of Lubreck, who relieved the"Tr.tfrkheYi >caf^ them back iatp the place in great confufion, leaving'" 30 Men killed on thefpot.
