ON THE SUBSCRIPTION BALLS. [heading]
To the Printer of the Royal Gazette. [heading]
I take the liberty, through the medium of your paper, of reminding
those gentlemen subscribers who have neglected to call and pay into the
Treasurer's hands their proportion, agreeable to resolutions entered into at a
meeting at the Union Coffee House, on the 2d inst. which have been printed for
the information of all on the list of subscribers; and I further beg leave to
observe, that as our Subscription Balls are intended to be given in honour and
for the pleasure and entertainment of the fair sex, we should readily come
forward, and wait for no importunities, in the payment of our subscription
money; as such neglect may very fairly be construed into a great deficiency of
polite attention towards the ladies. I have satisfied myself as to the number
of subscribers already paid, which I find to be only twenty eight - about
one-third of the total number.
March 31, 1812.
since Saturday, are the Joseph, Capt. Strickland, and the Blackbird, Capt.
Coverley, from Barbados; and the Papers we have received by them are to the
24th instant. The New Escape, from Tobago, has also entered our river.
Barbados was, on the sailing of the above vessels, in the
possession of London Papers to the 18th of February.
The Papers, thus placed in our possession, most unequivocally
authenticate the communication we made to the Public, in our Gazette of the
25th ult. respecting the capture of Ciudad Rodrigo; they having laid before us
Dispatches to that effect, from the victorious Wellington himself - and we now
present the following copy of them to our readers, with the same pleasure as
they will doubtless be received with.

FROM THE BARBADOS PAPERS. [heading]
The Ship John Tobin, (arrived in Carlisle Bay) on Saturday the
21st inst. fell in with the Dragon, 74, Admiral Laforey; the Statira frigate
and Peruvian brig in company. They were about 180 miles to windward of the
island, cruising for the French frigates, of which, however, they had not
obtained any further information since they left their anchorage.
The Liberty man of war brig, on her passage to Barbados from
Martinique, fell in with a schooner off Point Salines, which could not produce
any papers, relative to the place of her departure; and as there were eight
respectable looking Frenchmen on board of this vessel, who could not give any
satisfactory account of themselves, she was sent to Martinique, in order that
they should undergo an examination before General Wade.
