Post Man (Newspaper) - October 17, 1802, London, Middlesex Numb* 1030 CC G C And the Hiftoricai Account, '"--&c from ^atUtDap October 17,' %o %miQ&? O&eber 20, 1702. PrfN';, October 13. THe Court continues at Fmtainileau, and the day of their return to ^erfaiilu is not yet fixed.' They write from thence, that federal Edi&s have been refblved upon for hying new Taxes, and creating Offices, which will befpeedily publifhed, and feme would nave already come out, had not the Council thought Jit to fufpend the fame, till they know the particulars of the Cargo of the Spaniih Piate Fleet, and how the fame flull be difpofed of. The rapidity of the Conquefts of� the Confederate Army in the Uttherhndi, caufes a great furprize both at Court and in this City, and the taking of VcnU, Ruremmie and St Sttvenfvaert in left than a months time, occaftons great reflections upon the Maref-chal ofBuuffitrs, who does not want Enemies to countenance the fame,, and miireprefent his Conduc>. That General fends frequencExpreues to the King ; and his Friends report, that he makes preffing in-fiances to obtain leave to isgage the Confederate Army, if they attempt to pouefs rhemfelves of Liege, as they give out, they intend to do in a fewQiyti but we are cold, that the Court will cot ' run the rifqae of a Settle, becaufe of the fatal con-(equ�nce� the overthrow of oar Forces might have, in relation to the preservation o( ths Spanifh; and that our General is ordered to continue on tlie defsnfive, in hopes, that the Seafon of the year being to far fpent, the Allies will be obliged te fend their TroOp* into their Winter Quarters. The King feems very well pleafed with the conduQ of Count laSard'in his late expedition towards C�/$n, tho the Treaty of Neutrality that City has concluded with him, is likely to lad but a little while ; but his perfwading the Elector of Cobgn to put Sum into our hands, which he had hitherto fo obftinately refufed, is a great piece of fervice, which will not be for-gntwn in the next promotion of Marefchals of ris f�id the Marefchal of WiJUttj will command next Summer in the Netberlaudt, and that our Forces will be confiderably augmented by the new Levies the King deftgns to make this-Winter, which will con-ftft of yoooo meiveither by augmentation of Troops and Companies, oi" by the forming of feveral new Regiments. Our Forces in Italy are very much ueakned by Sickneli, but Recruits are to be feat thither with all imaginable fpced, to hinder Prince Engine from making Conquefts this Winter, as he didthelafti Notwithstanding the frequent reports we have had of late, that the Pope and the Republic k bffoiKi had concluded a defeniive and offensive League for the fecarity of their Dominion*, and maintaining their Neutrality, the left advices from Rmi and Ptnici feem to contradict the lame ; and Cardinal iTEftrtes writes to fhe King, that he is af� fraid the Vttntiam will be perfwaded to give Winter Quarters to the foiperialifts, and Cardinal Janfm has the fame jealouiies of the Qmrtof Rome . TrSg Hostilities committed in the Gulph of Vtniu by |hq Chevalier At FnriiH, which the Republick could] never flop by her Interceflion, havefofflUffh ex^ afperated the Fenttiam j that ��me are afraid,, the^ will more openly utew their re&ntsfient after the-return of the King ef Sfaik to Madrid. The Treaty between that Prince and the Svitun is noty�ten> tiiely renewed ; and they write frem ttlothurn, that th? Threats ofCeunt TrautfpiaadoTf, Envoy of trfe Emperor to the Cantons, and the declaration made by fome otherPow.ers, that they will lookuponit as a rupture with the H�ufeof Atfria, have put a flopro^ tljat" affair for fome time.
