ARRIVALS. - The schooner Joseph, Strickland, from Barbados, on

morning, the schooner Shark, Hicks, from Surinam.
The Papers by
the Joseph, are to the 2d instant; and, in consequence of the arrival at
Barbados, the preceeding [sic] day, of the Princess Charlotte Packet, Capt. White, they have
communicated European intelligence to the 25th of January. [Transcriber's
note: European news not transcribed]
The only article of local interest, in the Island Papers before
us, is the following account of another gallant repulse of an American
The second Mail for January was received yesterday by the Princess
Charlotte, Packet, White, 30 days from Falmouth, and, as on many late
occasions, her Commander had an opportunity of signalizing himself in the
defence of an important charge, against the aggression of a superior foe. -
On the 13th ult. in Lat. 28 20. N. long.
20 11. W. they descried a sail in chase, and accordingly Capt. White prepared
for action; at 4 p.m. they received a shot, which was instantly returned; the
enemy then continued a brisk fire, the Packet doing the same; and at 7, being
within musket-shot, the former fired her broad sides alternately. This did some
damage to the Princess Charlotte's sails, &c. at 9, the enemy sheered off,
and at 10, again renewing the action, she was discovered (being a clear
moon-light night) to be a corvette-built ship of considerably superior force;
notwithstanding which, her raking fire was answered, with unshaken resolution.
At 9 a.m. of the 14th, the enemy kept at a distance; but at day light she made sail
so as not to lose sight of the Packet; and on the 15th, having placed two
additional guns on a platform astern, and made some other alterations in the
arrangement of her guns, she began to close, when, on the following morning,
having shot a-head, she fired her stern guns, loaded with round and laugrage
(without shewing any colours), and gave two broadsides, after which, the enemy
hoisted an American ensign and pendant. Having hoisted the British Union, the
Princess Charlotte courageously fired a broadside at this dastardly Yankee,
accompanied by three cheers, and now the conflict became more serious, for the
few guns on board the Packet being crammed to the muzzle with double headed
round and grape, the effect was manifestly injurious to her opponent, who,
availing herself of swiftness, made sail, and was out of sight before night
came on. The privateer mounted either 18 or 20 guns, and from 120 to 140 men;
the Packet carries six 6's, and two 9's and, including the Captain, has a
complement of 28 men and boys - none of whom, we are happy to state, suffered
severely in this gallant affair. - Captain White, whose conduct on this
occasion sufficiently speaks for itself, acknowledges in the warmest manner,
the assistance he received from a Mr. [illegible]ter, passenger; as well as the
bravery and good discipline of the ship's crew.
The American vessel, mentioned among the arrivals, has not brought
