By the Opossum
sloop-of-war, which arrived on Thursday, Barbados Papers have been received to
the 31st ult.; the following, however, is the one article we have conceived of
importance enough to copy:
"By the arrival
of the Elizabeth man of war schooner from St. Thomas, information is received
of an action having taken place between the Southampton frigate, Capt. Sir J.
L. Yoe [sic - for Yeo], and a ship of war belonging to the Haytian Empire,
occasioned by the following circumstance: - The British frigate was cruising
off the port of Jaquemel, St. Domingo, and observing the vessel with which she
was afterwards engaged, coming from that port, fired a shot to bring her to;
this was immediately returned by her oponent [sic] - the fight consequently
ensued, and was continued for six hours, during which a most dreadful carnage
was made on board the Haytian vessel - she had a complement of 800 men, of whom
400 were killed and wounded before she struck to the Southampton, which also
lost a number of men. Sir J. L. Yeo lost a leg in this affair, and his First
Lieutenant was dangerously wounded. - It appears that the crew of the vessel
taken had, some time previous to this revolted, and carried her from
Christophe's squadron to that of his rival Petion, and were therefore afraid of
being discovered and sent back to their former Chief - this, it is said, caused
them to risk an action. - The Southampton has carried her prize to Jamaica, to
which station she belongs."
The Packet, from
this River, sailed on Thursday; and among the Passengers we noticed-
Esquire, Government-Secretary, of this Colony; and C. J. O'Hara, Esquire, late
The Union, Capt.
Henry, from Glasgow, is also arrived - but she does not bring any intelligence
RUNAWAY and ARRESTED
in the Colony-Stocks of Demerary.
