The Gingle Schooner arrived this Morning from Barbados and has brought us the Mercury to the 9th inst. Its contents will be found as follows:
BRIDGE-TOWN, BARBADOS, April 9th. [heading]
The Rochfort Squadron, which report had at one time sent to he East, and then to the West Indies; at another to Louisiana, and then to Toulon; now to conquer Surinam, or then to skulk into Martinique; at one time touching at Cayenne, and at another proceeding to St. Domingo; we are happy at length in being able to give some tidings of which bear an authority that removes ever doubt of its destination. - They have actually arrived at the Chesapeake. We first received this information on Thursday, through a most respectable channel, obtained from St. Lucia; accompanied with information of minor importance - that of the capture of the Island of Deseade.
The following are the accounts received from St. Lucia, of the 4th inst.
"The Rochfort Squadron have put into the Chesapeake, Admiral Duckworth close after them with eight or ten sail.
"The Cerberus frigate and Melville sloop, took on Tuesday night, with the assistance of some brigs of war, the Island of Deseada - the Admiral then at Marigalante, with six sail of the line."
The arrival of the Rochfort squadron in the Chesapeake is now further communicated by accounts from Antigua; and Sir Alex. Cochrane, as we understand had been apprised of the fact nearly a fortnight ago. A vessel from Tortola, where direct accounts from America had been received, was dispatched with the tidings; and a subsequent confirmation was made to the Admiral from Capt. Crofton of his Majesty's ship Demerary, who obtained it from a Swedish vessel sent express to our Naval Commander on the American station. - Capt. Croften relying on the information, proceeded in quest of Admiral Duckworth, then supposed to be in the neighbourhood of St. Domingo, but it would seem that this indefatigable Officer had some previous knowledge of the Enemy's route, for it is confidently added, that Sir John had been seen off the Coast of America, standing for the Chesapeake. This is not only mentioned in the account from St. Lucia, but is also currently given with that of the Enemy's being already there. Only one wish - one sentiment - one opinion can be entertained as to the rencounter and its issue; and unless we are duped by sallacious reports, we now may fairly anticipate the capture of the eloped L'Almand, and the subjugation of his whole Squadron; giving by its splendid achievement, immortal fame to the renowned Duckworth, in a title derived from the watery field of battle.
A report has also been received here from Antigua, which tends to overthrow all hopes of an accommodation with the American Government, it being stated that Mr. Rose, our Minister, has quitted the United States. - If this be true, it has been no doubt the result of the Enemy's arrival in the Chesapeake; where Admiral Duckworth's appearance so speedily after may, however, give a new turn to our political ascendency.
Admiral Berkeley still retains the command on the American station, and Sir. J B Warren is gone to take that of Jamaica.
On Wednesday Evening three Vessels of the Cork Fleet arrived here; - they left Cork on the 29th Of February. The Ship Mervin, Capt. James, intended for Surinam, but lost her fore topmast in a squall and could not bear up, several other Vessels destined there, have fallen to Leeward and have gone to St. Vincents. Tho' their departure from Europe is much later than the last mail, we do not learn that they bring any news.
The Homeward bound Fleet from this Port, consisting of nearly 30 Vessels, sailed on Thursday morning, under convoy of a Sloop of War.
A most daring Robbery was committed on Thursday night last in the House of Mr. Barry, on Robb's Stelling. The thieves entered by a back window, and after taking the keys of his store and iron chest from his waistcoat pocket, (he being a-sleep in the same room) they opened the chest and took out about 170 Joes in Cash. [sic - period] robbed [sic - not capitalized] the store of some dry goods, drank six bottles of beer, and escaped without the least alarm being given!! The Centinel at the Military Hospital hailed a Negro during the night, who threw down a bundle and made off. The bundle contained 9 pieces of cambric belonging to Mr. Barry. Every exertion is making to apprehend a Negro who is suspected of being concerned in the affair, and who had been lately in the employ of Mr. B.
Died, at an advanced age, on Wednesday last, the Widow De Beete.
Vessels Entered and Cleared since our last. [heading]
