Monday morning the first Mail for December arrived from Barbados, by which we
have received London Papers to the 5th December inclusive; - their contents are
various but not of that satisfactory description which we should wish to lay
before our readers: - it will be seen by our extracts that the Austrians have
been making movements as if with intention to co-operate with the Russians, who
it appears fell back upon their main body, upon learning the advance of the
French. A very considerable part of French Army is advancing into Poland.
Ship Demerary, Capt. Inglis, arrived in this River yesterday from Liverpool, which
she left on the 5th ult. - We are under particular obligations to a Gentleman
who has kindly favour'd us with Liverpool Papers to the 3d of January, which
contain London News to the 1st: - no material events had occurred at that
period, by which any change for the better could be much hoped for; - we
however have made extracts of those articles most worthy of attention.

Commander of the Lord Lavington Mail-Boat, came Passenger, - he reports their
