Post Man (Newspaper) - September 25, 1801, London, Middlesex Numb. 879 000 ! _ And the Hifiorical Account, &c. From %i)Utimv September 25,1:0 >attttfcap September 27,1 70; Brujftls, September 30. E^erday Circular Letters were fent to the Magiftrates and federal Councils of thefe Provinces to go into mourning for the late King James, which will continue for 6 weeks. 'lis faid here that the new King of Spain will acknowledge the pretended Title of the Prince oiWala, and in the mean time our Gazetteer fpejks of him as if he were actually King of England. On Monday laft the Marefchal of Boufflcrs came to this place, and having had a long Conference, with the Marquefs of Bedmar^ returned in the evening to Louvatn. They talk of War here as of 2 certain tiling, and feeing the Dutch are reinforcing their Troops, our Generals are afraid of a Winter Campaign, which will oblige the Frank and Spar.ijh Courts to keep in thefe Provinces as many Troops as can conveniently fublift. This is a hard task Co be performed, for Provifions begin to grow dear in the French Conquefts, and if this Country is rrot fupplyed by the Dutch, we (hall hnd our felves under great difficulties. They write from Ricbelte on the Meufe, that Count Tallard is to decamp in few days from Mount Calmin near Aix la Chaff elle, and come in the Neighbourhood of Richelle, becaufe he cannot fubfift io far from the French Magazines. The Marquefs of VMequieres -who commands the French Camp at Richelle,went toMatftrhht cuSunday laft, and paid a vifit to the Deputies of the States General, who are gone thither to renew the Farms of the pub-lick revenue in thofe parts. Thofe DSpities returned him the vifit in his Camp, where they were received with extraordinary marks of refpeci and honour. The damage occafioned by the blowing up of a Magazine or Labaratory on Monday laft at Maejlricht proves very inconliderable, for we hear there were but 3 Barrels of Powder in ic, and no Bombs loaded. Our laft advices from Milan tell us, thatthe Imperial Army continues between Falazzuolo and Chiari, and che French near Urago, both on the other fide of the Oglio, and that they are fo near that there are daily Skirmifhes berween the Parties, in which the Germans prove too hard for the Confederates, and 'tis certain that (Ince the Germans came over the yidi^e, the Confederates hive loft a greater number of men, than probably they would have done in a general Battel. Some make it about 10000 men be-fides D^ferters and the men they have loft by Mortality. The Councry people in the iMil/�ieze are uninimous for the Emperor, and wait for a fair op-portuiiity to declare themfelves. Our , la ft Letters give an infhnce thereof, for they tell us that one Dr Jojepho Conj'oii de Gravedone, who was formerly biiiilhid the Milaneze, came lately into the Val de ^jrr^notfar from the Fort of Puentes on the Lake of Com, where he caufei a fort of infurre&ion in fivour of the Emperor, celling the Councry people that loooo Germans were marching through the Vnltiline to their afliftance. That infurre�hon was Ijon quelled, bar this is a warning to the Government of Milan, which will induce them to cake fuch meiiures chac they may not ftand in need of re-\g 0-1 ths fiielicy ot'chelnfiabicancs. The Affairs in Sp-un gro'v drily more intricate, and the French confound tb�n rribfe and more by the fuddsn innovations th�y woJld alike therein. 'Tt's true what they propofe feems necelTary for fa-ving rhc Monarchy from a loraJ declenlior, but every body knows chat the Spaniards have fuch a refpe& for their Anceftors, that they think it a crime to mend the very faults rhey were guilry ihe Poft-n^frer General of Spain exprtfted himfclf, upon ibrre Proppfals made unto him from the Governours r.f the Poft Office in England, for rendiing the Pcft eftablifhed between London and Madrid by way of the Grcyne more ufefuJ and expeditious Paris, October r. 'Tis importable to exprefs the trouble �e are under in this Kingdom, by reafon of the alteration of Gur Coyn. A;l bulinefles are at a ftand, and People do not know v� hereabours they are, for if the Coyn has been aimed, ibo full derable, and therefore a new Edict is come out, railing the new Lewis d'Or to 14. Livres, and the old rill the latter end of December are ro be taken at 13 Livres, fo that it's plain that the Kjng will get 20 pence upon every Lewis d'Or, and proportionably upon the Silver Species 5 which will bring avail: Summ of money into his Coffers. The journey of the Court to Fontainbleau is like to produce new Taxes, and fomenew feverities againft the new Converts j for this practice has been conftandy obferved for thefe feveral years paft, the new Taxes being designed for defraying the charges of that journey, and the new Perlecution of the Proteftants, as an artone-ment for the irregular Life of fome young Perfons that attend the Court. The Generals of our Italian Army have reprefented to the King, that the Troops are fo harraiTed by the fatigues of this longCampaign, that they are afraid of a great Sicknefs amongft cherrv, unlefs they are fpeedily fent to quarters ofrefreih- � ment; but his Majefty is fo concerned at the dif-grace his Arms have received, that 'tis faid orders are fenc to keep the Field, till the Germans break up from their Camp, tho his Majefty has approved,- that the Duke of Savoy (hould quit the Army about this time. Hague, September 30. They wrire from Loo, that an Italian is feized there, and as he gives no good account of himfelf, nor what bufinels he had there ; 'tis believed he is the fame perfcta who was committed to the Bafiile, when my Lord Portland was Ambaflador at Pans. No body a fufrered tofpeak to him, and a French Orncer who ferved in Piemor.t, and knows the Peribn thac was taken up at Paris, is gone to Loot to fee whether he is the lime Man. 'Tis faid that Itahin had a confiderable Bill of Exchange upon dmjlerdam, which increafes the fu/picion they have, that he Was fen: upon fome villanous defign. They write from. Paris, that the altering of their Coyn has altogether ftopc their Trade, and Bills 6T Exchange for confiderable Summs have been proreft-ed^and returned by the laft Poft. The Mmifters of/ the- ;
