A HINT. [heading]
How well it often turns out, for us short sighted mortals, to be disappointed in our most ardent wishes. - had Mr. Van Schuler, whose pathetic address appeared in the last Saturday's Gazette, unfortunately for himself, been as successful as he then probably wished in a late application to the Honorable Court of Justice, to be made an Exploiteur, to what a severe trial must his tender feelings have been exposed at this moment, on reflecting that he himself, would have been one of the instruments of the Ruin and Oppression, which he discribed [sic] in such sublime Language.
A SUBSRIBER [sic].

A GREAT OUTRAGE. [heading]
Committed against the Public Peace last Tuesday about seven o'clock in the Evening! - As an old Gentleman was returning home he was most violently assaulted by a white Man, seemingly with an intention to Rob or to take Life; the Villain ran up behind giving several unexpected blows on the Head, Face and Shoulders, fortunately for the Gentleman, (having nothing to defend himself with) he persevered in his endeavors to reach his own Door, near which this outrage happened, and where he arrived very much bruised and fainting from the great loss of blood flowing from a wound which he received in the face!!! - A friend to good order, holds it indespensably [sic] necessary not to loose a moment in acquainting the Public herewith; and that the most effectual means are taking to discover the Villain who in contempt of all Law has committed such an Outrage! -
Stabroek, March 4, 1808.

This morning the second Mail for January reached here and brings papers to the 24th of that month, Parliament met on the 21st. . . .

The Barbados Paper of the 27th ult. mentions the return of the Squadron under Sir A. Cochrane, to Carlisle Bay, said to be in consequence of the Defence and Ramelies, falling foul of each other - but a more likely cause is, of information having been received of the enemy taking another Route.

The vessels which sailed lately from hence, under the convoy of the Julia Brig were all laying in Carlisle Bay on the 1st. inst. and were to proceed in a few days. - The Ship Jason, Capt. Gemmil, proved so leaky, that she could not proceed with the Convoy.
