Fire in Trinidad. [heading]
His Excellency Admiral Sir Alexr: Cochrane not finding it convenient to His Majesty's Service to spare any Vessel to convey the Frames, &c. proposed to be contracted for to Trinidad, and no Tender having been made of one for that purpose, nor it being at all probable that one will be proposed except at a rate that would render the very benevolent Subscriptions that have done so much honor to the humanity and liberality of the Gentlemen of this Colony, nugatory and useless; the mode of disposal of the money proposed by His Excellency the Governor and the Gentlemen of the Committee at Trinidad is with reluctance laid aside as impracticable.
The Chairman has to lament that the attempt to carry it into execution has occasioned so very considerable a delay in a charitable purpose of which it is so much the essence that the relief be as speedy as possible, but he trusts that the Gentlemen who have not yet made good their Subscriptions will do so at Mr. Underwood's or Mr. Robertson's the respective Treasurers in the course of the ensuing week, that the money may be remitted as soon as possible and he hopes to lay next week before the Public the accounts of the receipt of the money and its appropriation for the satisfaction of the Gentlemen who have done themselves so much honor and he trusts their neighbours so much service by the chearful [sic] alacrity with which they have flown to relief under the pressure of so dreadful a calamity.
Joseph Beete, Chairman.

The Subscriber is under the necessity of informing such Persons as are owing him Money, which ought to have been paid long since, that it is entirely out of his power to give them farther Indulgence, for in that case his Credit must suffer materially. He has adopted this public method of conveying his sentiments in order that no blame may attach to him in the event of an application through the medium of the Law. - A measure he is quite averse to.

Yesterday morning a Schooner belonging to Captain Parker, from Barbados to Berbice, but which had fallen to Leeward was spoken off this Bar, from which a Gentleman was fortunate enough to get a Barbados Paper of the 27th September, which brings an account that the second August Mail arrived in Barbados on the 26th ult. the contents of which are very important relative to Spain, . . .

The Cornwallis Packet, Captain Anthony, which brought the 2d August Mail, had a very smart action with a French Privateer about 300 miles to Windward of Barbados. She had 83 men and 2 long traverse 18-pounders, while the Packet had but 28 men - the Enemy was compelled to sheer off after an action of 2 hours.

The Mail-Boat for this Colony left Barbados the day before Capt. Parker's Schooner - thus may be hourly expected here.

This week the Homeward-bound Vessels from this River, went out over the Bar, and sailed yesterday under Convoy of the Savage - see Ship's list.

On Wednesday forenoon Admiral Sir Alexr. Cochrane, K.B. arrived here overland from Berbice, accompanied by His Excellency Brigdr.-General Montgomerie. The Bellisle and York were out side the Bar the same day. At one o'Clock the Fort saluted the Admiral who remained here until yesterday morning, when he went on board his Tender, and in passing the Fort was again saluted. Whilst here, the Admiral had a Survey made on the Skip Jack, which was Condemned, - and we understand that Lieut. Thompson is to have the Confiance Schooner lately captured by the Belette.
