The Schooner Good Intent, which arrived yesterday, has brought Barbados Papers to the 9th Instant; and, should their contents prove to be as true as they are interesting, we shall experience additional pleasure in having received them at a period, so favourable for almost an immediate communication to our readers.

In America, it appears also from the Papers in our possession, the Public Mind seems agitated, as is doubtless that of England before this, as to what the consequences may be of the late Naval Contest between the United States' frigate President, 44, commanded by Commodore Rodgers, and the Little Belt, 14, Capt. Bingham, off Cape Henry; a contest, which the American Commander declares originated in mistake, and was carried on in consequence of the obstinacy [sic] and reserve of the Captain of the Little Belt. The Public will, however, be able to judge for themselves, as the British Account, will be found in this day's Paper, and the American in our next. We must however premise, that the account of Commodore Rodgers being dispatched in search of a British Vessel, which had impressed two American seamen, and which we copied from the Barbados Paper, into the Royal Gazette of the 9th Inst. is declared to be erroneous.

BRITISH ACCOUNT
OF THE
Contest between the United States frigate President, and
His Britannic Majesty's Sloop of War Little Belt.

Copied from a Bermuda Gazette of the 12th ult.

"On the 16th ult. His Majesty's ship Little Belt, Capt. Bingham, discovered a strange sail to windward, and immediately stood towards it; about 1 p. m. made her out to be a frigate steering to the Eastward, but edging down to the Little Belt, when the latter ship made the signal for the stranger to shew her number, which not being answered, it was concluded she was an American frigate; and the Little Belt hoisted her colours, altered her course, and stood to the southward, with the intention of doubling Cape Hatteras; and was followed by the frigate under easy sail, until half-past three p. m. when she made sail in chace of the Little Belt. Soon after, the latter made the private signal, which was not returned. At half past six, finding the frigate had neared the Little Belt, being by this time within gun shot; and so close that the stars in her broad pendant could be plainly discerned, she brought to and again hoisted English colours, with a view of preventing the possibility of any mistake that might arise from their meeting after dark. From the manner in which the American came down, it was evidently her intention to approach the Little Belt in a situation to rake her, which man¤uvre was frustrated by the latter ship wearing three successive times, which will in some measure account for their not speaking each other till past eight o'clock.
"At a quarter past eight P. M. the two ships were within hail, when the Little Belt asked, What ship? and the American replied by asking the same question. The Little Belt again repeated the request, and was answered as before, followed by a broadside from the American frigate, which was returned by the former, and the action now became general and severe, and continued three quarters of an hour, at which time it was discovered that the frigate was on fire, apparently about the main hatch way. The American now ceased firing and made sail, asking at the same time if the Little Belt had struck her colours, which was answered in the negative, with the question; What ship is that? On which the American replied, an United States frigate - and sheered off!
"At day light next morning, the frigate was descried to windward of the Little Belt, and about eight a.m. bore down on her again, fully prepared for action, and requested permission to send a boat on board, which was granted, and which she accordingly did, with an Officer and a message from Commodore Rodgers, of the United States' frigate President, stating that he lamented the occurrence of the unpleasant affair, as he termed it, which had happened; and that had he known the force was so inferior, he would not have fired; at the same time offering his assistance, and recommending him to put into an American port to refit; and which was of course declined.
"In thus repelling this unprovoked and wanton attack on an English sloop of war of 14 guns and 112 men, by an American frigate of the largest class, the British nation has to deplore the loss of 1 midshipman and 10 seamen killed, and 1 officer and 20 seamen wounded.
"There can be no question as to the aggressor in this instance, the superiority of the American frigate, the circumstance of her following the Little Belt a day, obviously with the intention of attacking her under the cover of night, together with the apology sent by Commodore Rodgers that he did not know the force was so inferior, or he would not have fired, all prove it a premeditated act. Why did he fire at all? is the question; he certainly had no more right to attack one British vessel than another. That sentence, however, convinces us, that he did not act without orders; and that the President, like the Chesapeake, was sent to sea for the express purpose of widening the breach between the two countries there cannot be a doubt. In this instance Commodore Rodgers has accomplished his errand - he has by this fresh act of aggression, violated the character of a neutral. The outrage which has in this instance been committed, requires no colouring to rouse the indignation of the English nation - the blood of British seamen, which has been thus treacherously shed, calls aloud for vengeance; and the daring insult which has been offered to a flag which is never insulted with impunity, must be atoned for by America! The extent of atonement which will be required, the British Government alone is competent to determine."
