Since the publication of our last number, the John from Glasgow, and the First Attempt from Barbados, have entered our river. By the fromer, we have been favored with Scotch Papers of recent dates, from which we have made a few extracts; and by the latter, Papers to the 9th instant.

The Schooner Shark came in this morning. She left Surinam on Thursday last, at which time the Packet had not arrived.

On the 12th instant, the Lady of the Hon. F. P. Van Berckel departed this life, at half past 2 o'clock in the morning; and if we may judge of the esteem she was held in while living, by the respect which was showed her when dead - His Honor has indeed experienced an irreparable loss. She was followed to the place of interment (Plantation Turkyen) the next morning, at nine o'clock, by the most numerous cavalcade of respectability ever witnessed in Demerary.

We are happy to announce the safe return, to this colony, of the Revd. Mr. STRAGHAN, who will, doubtless, recommence the public duties of his office, to-morrow morning. Likewise, the arrival of Brigadier General Sir C. SHIPLEY, who, we understand, intends a variety of beneficial improvements in his department.

An English Gentlemen who arrived lately from France, in consequence of a special permission to leave that country, amply states that in spite of a system of espionage, more extensive than ever was known, the people contrive to express their sentiments in a manner which the tyrant cannot controul. . . .

Bonaparte has communicated to the Senate, his annual Exposition of the French Empire. He states in it, that an offer was made to Great Britain, that the independence of Holland should be preserved, if she would repeal her Orders in Council, which was refused. This shews clearly the high importance Bonaparte attached to these Decrees and how severly he smarted under them. He also declares, that, so long as Great Britain perseveres in her said Orders in Council, so long will he persevere in his Berlin and Milan Decrees.

To ARGUS.

What, in the Orange Grove, you say,
Was lately seen perform'd,
Inspires, no doubt, by night or day,
No fear of being horn'd!

Fortunately that must trifling be,
(if we conclusions draw,)
Which even you, so form'd to see,
Confess you dimly saw!

A Friend to the Husband of Cecilia.
