Post Man (Newspaper) - May 15, 1801, London, Middlesex Numfc). 8:8 KKK And the Hiftorical Account, crt. l�i)tttEoay Mav i�;, co ^aiUtdap May 17,1701, Rome, April 30. 'He Pope holds frequent Congregations of State on the prelent juncture of affairs, and it wis refolded in the Ja-fT, to lend with all fpeed, all our new railed Forces _ _ ro Bihnia and Ferrara, upon intimation Wwr-tht French delijjnto leize the latter, upon the 'Od.s pretence of preventing t'ic Imperialifb, who s. French give out, intend to do it. This has h Iht pretence of feiiirig Mantua, Guajlala, Caflig-Utne and demanding Btrzello oftheDake of Modena.

The Ambaffidpr of Venice has frequent Conferences with the Minifters of State ; wherein he endeavours to perfwide them, that it is rhe Intereft of the Pope, to make a League with the Republick, for maintaining their common Neutrality, and if his Ho-linefs will declare, as they have done, that he will in conjunction with them, declare againft the party, who (hall commit .any hoftility, either againft the iiccleliaftick State or the Republickv 'tis likely due nothing would prove mote effe&ual for their common fccuriryl becaufe none of the Parties would bring upon them the Pope and che Venetians, who might turn the Scale. The Pope has not ohIv written to the Roman Catholiqk Princes to diifiiade them from owning the new Ki^g of Pruffia, but alfo the' Eieftor of Brunfvick, with which the Imperial Am-balTador feems very angry, and faid publickly, that his Milter would be very much furprfzedto hear, that inftead of the affiltence he expected from this Court, ihey fhould endeavour to difturb and divide the Empire. Genoa, April jo. Great . rejoycings have been mide at Turin, for the Birth of a fecond Son to the Duke o� Savoy, who was barn the z 3d inftant. Thofe diversions h>ve retarded for fome days the departure of his Royal Highnefs ; but his Equipage is ready , and he intends to fetouc on the 5th of the next month for Mantua and Caftigliom. Some French Ships are lately arrived here, with fome Troops and recruits for the Milanese ; and they write from Thoidon, that feveral Batallions are expefted there, to inibaikfor Italy, upon advice that the Germans will invade the Milanez-e with a more powerful Army than was at Jirft intended, and that die Emperor is like to have a considerable Party on this fide the Wlps, as fbon as his Friends have an opportunity to declare far him, without expoling themielves to a manifeft danger. By a Ship from Confiantinopls we have advice of the 6th inftant, that the Grand Signiorisfet out for Adr'tample, and was to be followed by the Grand Vizier, and other Minifters of the Port. They write from Smyrna of the fame date, that the French grow very proud and infolerrt in thofe parts, and tell she Turks t that when ever new War breaks oyt, of which they fpeak as of a certain thing, their Grand Monarch has lb difpofed his Fleer, that the Englifh and Durch will be unable \o fend a Ship into the iMtdilefranean. We hear from Venice, that trie Republick is fending a good train of Artillery, and a great quantity of Ammunition te Pefchiera, a place fituated at the lower end of the Lake de la Guard*. Madrid, May 5. On the id inftant the Council met, at the Betoen Retire, and the King communicated unto them the League concluded with the Duke of Savoy and his intention .of marrying the fecond Daughter of that Prince,whereupon*fhe King received the next," day the Compliments ot the Grandees and foreign Minifters, and die People fliewed all poffible demon-ftration of joy. This day the King received the Collar of the Order of the Golden Fleece, from the^hand of the Duke of Manteleon, atfifted by the Dukes ot Efcalona and Vexar, and the Deputies of the feveral Kingdoms, with the Grandees and Bifhops are fum-moned to attend here the 8th inftant, in the Church o� St Jerome, to take the Oath of Fidelity to the King, and fee hisMajefty toSwear the obfervation of all the Laws, Priviledges and Immunities of his Subjects-The League with Portugal is at a ftand, and they write from Lisbotme, that the Imperial party increafes, and ours leffens every day.' The King ot Portugal is fitting a good Squadron. Two ��gW&Men of War are fail'd from Cadi s, with a great deal^Money on board, and moft of the Ships of that Nation, and the Dutch have taken the benefit of their Convby. The Marquis Legantz. is fet out for Cadiz. Our Men of War in that Harbour are not Vet fitted bur. Vienna, May 11. Our Letters from Hungary confirm that the Imperial Government have taken fuch care to prevent the intentions of the Rebels, that that Kingdom is in a perfect. Tranquility, and they talk no more of fending any Forces into that Country, oat of the Empire. Letters from Peterwarradin mal?e no manner of mentis* of the motions of the Turkifli Troop? on their Frontiers, and from thence many are apt to conjefture that theConfpirators relied more Upon the afliftance of a Chriftiarr Potentate,than upon the Infidels.ThatArmy will confift of 40000 effective Men, and if the Circles of the Empire continue to ftand upon a Neutrality, we hear the Emperor intends to fend 20000 men more into Italy, rhe preffing follicitations of the Pope, being unable to divert him from the defign of afle-rting his right to the Spanijb Succeffion, and chiefy to the Dutchy of Milan, wherein we are inform'd the Empsror has a confiderable PartytOn tdtnday laft thePrinces Cormnercf and Vaudmom fet out for Reveredo, and Prince Eugene of Savoy is to do the like in a day or two.
