The Ship Mary, Captain Laughton, from Liverpool, arrived yesterday, and has brought London papers to the 21st of August; but their contents are not of extraordinary importance. . . .

Naval Improvements. - Wrought iron has been proposed as an advantageous substitute for the materials now in use for many purposes in shipping. A mast of this metal, the cylinder half inch thick and the same height and diameter as a wooden mast, will not be so heavy, much more durable, less liable to be injured by shot, and easily repaired at sea. It will weigh only 12 tons, and, at 45 per ton, will not cost more than 540 while its strength will be 50 per ct. above a wooden mast, which weighs 23 tons, and costs 1200. Ships furnished with iron masts will not, like others, be exposed to damage by lightening [sic], the iron mast being an excellent conductor, by using the iron bolt from the bottom of the mast trough the kelson and keel, the electric matter will be conducted into the water, without injury to the ship. Yards and bowsprits may also be made of wrought iron, at the same proportion of expence and strength as the mast; chain shrouds and stays of iron may be used with those masts, and will not cost half the expence of rope, while they will also prove ten times more durable. - Even the entire hull might be made of wrought iron.

The Phoenix, from Barbados, arrived since our last, has brought Papers to the 1st instant; but their contents are not important.

DIED - on Thursday, John William Jones, Esq. of Bridge-Town; and yesterday, Mr. James Rose, of Kingston.

FOR LIVERPOOL.
