Post Man (Newspaper) - March 14, 1802, London, Middlesex Arid the Hifibrical Account, &(. From g>atqtl?ap March 14, to 5Cttefoap March 17, 1702. Haguei March 14. Efterday abcut y a Clock in the evening arrived two Exprelfes from England, with the fad news of the death of his Jate Majefty, William the Third King of Great Britain, and Stadcholder hereditary of thefe Provinces ; which has caufed here fuch an uni-verfal Grief, that no words are able to exprefs. He was the iaft Prince of that Illuftrious Branch of the Houfe ofNaJftu, the Founder of our Republick ; a Pimily Jeiigned by Providence for defending true Religion and Liberty agai/iftTyrantsandOpprefTors} with whom die fate of our Commonwealth feemed fb ft icrly linked, that when by the unhappy advices of fiine mifhken Men, the dignity of Staritholdsr was fapprelfed, our State fuffered fuch violent commotions as brought it within �n ace of its ruin, and had certainly funk, had not that great Prince been re-ftored to the dignity of his Anceilors. It would be too great a preemption to attempt here the Character of an Hero, whofe glorious life has been a continual feriT, of Wonderful A&ions, whofe unpa* rallell'd Valour and Prudence, after having reftored his Native Country to its former fplendour, refcued Great Brittin from Popery and Slavery, and broke trie ignominious Chains the French King had prepar'd for Europe; forcing that haughty Monarch to fne for Peace, and give fatirfa&ion to his injur'd Neighbours. The Death of the late King 6f Spain having opened a new Scene of affairs, and reviv'd the hopes of the trench King of attaining to an Uni�eifal Monarchy, an Idol to which he has all along facrificed all that is facred amoagft men, bis late Majefty was forced once more to re-unite the Councils of Europe againft thatfaithlefs Crown, and had brought things to that pafs, that we hope it will be faid of him that he has triumphed after his death, there being no doubt but all the Allies will vigoroufly profecute the meafures of that great Prince, to reduce the .ex* orbitant Power of trance, and reftore the Balance of Europe. The gracious Declaration of her Majefty of Great Britain, and the vigorous Refolutions of the Parliament of England, which we have received by the fame Exprefs, have prevented ( net a juft grief for fb great a lofs, but,) theunfpeakable confirmation we and our Allies would have been ftruck into, had the news of the Kings Death preceded the account of the Rufolutions of her Majefty and her greatCounciL "The States met immediately after the arrival of thofe Expreftts, -and difpatched feveral Courriers with in-"ftrtfSionS to theirMinifters abroad,relating to this great \�onjun�rJure, and to allure our Allies that notwith-. franding this fad misfortune, they will with the ut-raoft vigour maintain their Alliances, and purfue the methods refolved upon during his Majefties Life. y Tis fii'd Monfieur Odjk and Monfieur Dickvelt are 'jhordy to go for England, to condole the late Kings death,,and congratulate her Majefties acceflion to the � Throne. i Our Preparations are continued with all imagina-' Me diligence: Oiir Troops march to their refpeflive 'Rendezvous, and 'tis likely chat we fhall inform ycu, "bjroar next Letters with the inverting of Keyfervaert, and perhaps Fome other Places. The Englifb Troops are for the molt part at Rofendael, where they are to be joyned by a good body of the Troops of the Srates. All the foilicifattom and endeavours of the Imperial, bgtifti, Datcht and Other Miniflers having Dot been ahje to perfwade the Duke of Wdjtmbuttel to quit the Interefts of France, and that Prince daily augmenting his Troops, ivlieveby the King of Prujfia, theEleftor of Hamwe- andDuke of 2*3 are obliged Cq keep theirs, fot the lecumy of tkeir Dominion*, ana tiindred from fending them againft France; The Confederates have refolved to reduce taat Prince by force of Arms, and. according to oar Letters from Hannover of the 21 ft inftant, the Forces of Hannover and Z
