Warren with a notification to his Government, that the Russian Minister at the United States, had proposed to be the Mediator between the two countries - is the only novelty from that quarter. There is no doubt the mediation will be resumed.
The Barbados Papers (to the 19th instant) by the Blackbird, make no mention of the Challenge, reported in our last. Hoaxing must be a pleasant pastime - for we have certainly plenty of it.
We are happy to announce the appointment of Brigadier-General Murray (our Acting-Governor) to be Adjutant-General of the Forces, serving in the Windward and Leeward Islands, under the Command of Lieut.-Gen. Sir G. Beckwith.
A circumstance occurred yesterday, as singular as it is unfortunate. That fine new Ship the Ramoncita, now in the river, from the sudden shifting of a few casks of sugar, during the removal of her ballast, completely upset, and immediately went down. Capt. Venables, and two or three friends, who were in the cabin, with much difficulty saved their lives. Hopes are, however, confidently entertained, of the ship's ultimate recovery. We shall give further particulars in our next.
