BY AUTHORITY. [heading]
The Snig, from Barbados, arrived on Tuesday last, but at too late a period of the afternoon, for us to give her Papers' contents, in our publication of that day; and, now, as the Packet, bearing the September Mail, (which entered our river on Thursday, and will depart on Wednesday next,) affords London News to the 14th of that month, when the Barbados Papers give only to the 11th - we shall take no more notice of them than that their dates are to the 19th of October.
The Papers before us insinuate, that the negociation with Mr. Foster and the American Government is already broken off - but that certainly cannot be the case, as Congress has scarcely yet met, to whom the matter was to be reserved.
Mr. Joel Barlow, the new ambassador from the United States to the Court of Bonaparte, is also arrived in England, on his way to that country.
The Little Belt sloop of war is arrived in a British port; and Capt. Bingham has had several interviews with the Board of Admiralty and the Secretary of State, relative to his engagement with the President.
French Privateer. - The brig Coffee-Planter, belonging to Plymouth, (England), Captain Hercules Jenkins, arrived, on the 14th of August, at that port, from Curaćoa, and left that place six weeks previous, with a valuable cargo, bound to London, states, that about 8 days after sailing, when in the Mona Passage, a schooner privateer was observed hovering about an American ship, which, being fired at by the former, brought to, and in a short time after stood away from her assailant; but it was not known whether she had been taken possession of or not. The privateer then continued cruising within a short distance of the Coffee Planter, (which vessel's crew were only sufficient to work her), as if to observe her force; and, after reconnoitring her, came up, and took possession, without any resistance; Capt. Jenkins and his crew were immediately put in irons, in which state they remained the following night and part of the next day. Their ship was anchored under the Mona Island, (which is situated in the Mona Passage, and uninhabited), among the breakers, and boats were launched from the privateer to plunder, which, we are happy to say, was not carried into complete effect; however, about one hundred dollars, belonging to the captain, together with all the guns, part of his provisions, &c. were then taken away. During the time this scene was carrying on, a large ship, that had a very war-like appearance, bore in sight, which alarmed the privateer; the latter took every precaution to prevent her being discovered, to effect which she anchored behind Mona Island, near which the stranger passed. Previous to this, Captain Jenkins and his crew had been released from their fettered confinement, and, on the vessel passing, he immediately cut his cable, and stood towards her; she proved to be the ship Minerva, from the West Indies, with a cargo, bound to London. Capt. Jenkins gave an account of his capture, and the hiding-place of his enemy, when he stood away from her. The privateer was at this time observed to be preparing to chace; but her design was frustrated by the appearance of another ship in the offing, which turned out to be the Cumberland, from the West Indies, with a cargo, bound to London, for whose safety apprehensions were entertained, as the privateer was observed to watch her movements; and the two former lost her in a brisk gale during the following night. The privateer is called the Marengo, is a fine vessel, of 14 guns, and about 140 men, who are of all nations. The Captain is said to be a Frenchman, named Augereau; and he declared that the Coffee-Planter was the 32d prize he had made. His cabin was full of letters and dollars, plundered from the different vessels he had captured, the greater part of which were destroyed, but what became of their crews the Captain did not think proper to say.
There does not appear to be any truth in the article we copied from the Barbados Papers lately, respecting a second attack on the Island of Anholt.
An error of considerable importance has been discovered in the accounts given in different papers, and mentioned in our No. 418, respecting what took place in the British Council, on the 6th of September, regarding America. It was not a new measure of retaliation, but the continuation of the old one.
