POST OFFICE. [heading]
The intention of giving Credit at this Office was for the accommodation of the Public, for the more speedy delivery of Letters on the arrival of the Mail; - but so little attention has been Paid by the generality of Persons in the discharge of their Postage Accounts, that renders it absolutely necessary to give this Public Notice, - That from the date of this Advertisement no letters whatever will be delivered 'till the Postage is Paid, and such Persons who do not chuse to take Goods in exchange for Joes, must be prepared with small change to Pay for their Letters.

Demerary, 30th January 1808.

By the Ship Nicholson, which arrived here on Thursday in four Days from Barbados, we have received the Mercury to the 23d inst. There had not been any arrival there from Europe, however some further light has been thrown on affairs in America. - It appears that the Americans have informed their Friends in Martinique and Guadeloupe of their decision in favor of France: - this account is received from Dominica, which says that a Pilot-Boat had actually arrived at the above Islands, assuring them of the Friendly disposition and inclination to join France, and of an almost actual rupture with Great Britain. The above account also mentions, that further supplies are daily looked for at those Islands, as they have had advice of two Frigates, with Troops, Artillery and Ordnance.

The following Extract of a letter, received by a Gentleman in Barbados, dated New-York, 29th Jany, will tend to shew what effect the Embargo has already produced in America:-
"On the 22d inst. Congress laid a general embargo, in consequence it is said, of a demand made by Bonaparte of this Country, to shut their ports to English Commerce. The debates upon this measure having been with closed doors, every person forms his own judgment, and the various contradictory rumours in circulation would fill a volume; of course we do not attach credit certainly to any.
"The Executive of this Country is hostile to Great Britain; many are of opinion that Mr. Jefferson would not hesitate in joining France, even upon the ruin of the United States; however, it is generally believed that the public at large will oppose such a measure.
"Mr. Erskine, our Minister, has signified his confirmed opinion, that hostility is not meditated against England. - Perhaps we may be cajoled.
"Already the effects are felt ruinously; flour is down here to four dollars; in Philadelphia and Baltimore; the same and in Alexandria still lower, - say three to three and a half; every other article in the same proportion.
"it is impossible to say any thing with certainty as to the probable duration of this Embargo; already the people whose very existance [sic] depends upon their labours are getting clamorous, and will be thrown upon the world pennyless; we would not be surprised to see very fatal excesses committed."

It was not the Richard which arrived off the Barr last Week, nor was the report respecting the War with America and Great Britain correct; - The Vessel turned out to be the Ship Samuel Braddick, Capt. Ford, which came in on Sunday, in 24 days from Madeira; . . . [Transcriber's note: news about the British taking Madeira not transcribed]
