A number of troops are collecting in and about Basseterre, and an extensive depot of ammunition and provisions is made there and at Point a Petre. This is thought by some to be for the purpose of co-operating with Victor Hugues in an attack upon Surinam; but it is more likely for an object not so far distant.

PUBLIC VENDUES, in Stabroek and its Environs. [heading]
On Monday the 19th inst. at Plantation La Retraite the Boedel of the late T. L. Cramer, Esq.

NEW GOVERNOR. [heading]
His Excellency Henry William Bentinck arrived in this River in the Grenada on Sunday last, after a very short passage from London. he came on shore privately the next evening; but did not make his public entry till Thursday, when an Extraordinary Court of Policy was held, for the purpose of delivering over to him the Civil government of these Colonies. The Militia were drawn up on the Government Stelling to receive him, and a detachment of the Garrison was stationed within the area before the Court House. His Excellency landed about 12 o'clock, under a salute from the Fort, and walked with his hat off, attended by Messrs. Kroll and Cuming, Members of the Court, and Mr. P. F. Tinne, the Secretary, to the Court House, saluting the troops as he passed, who of course received him with presented arms, the band playing "God save the King." On his arrival in Court, and producing his Commission, the government, which had been previously surrendered by Brigadier-General Montgomerie, was delivered over to him, and the Order of the Court, which is inserted in our First Page, was ready by Mr. Tinne from the window of the Secretary's Office. His Excellency then took his seat as President of the Courts, and the Royals fire three vollies.
His Excellency is a very personable man, and appeared in good health and spirits. He is, we understand, a relation of the Duke of Portland, whose family name it may be remembered is Bentinck, and to whom he has some resemblance. Though born in Holland, he has been a considerable part of his life in Britain; and having been formerly Governor of St. Vincent's, where he was greatly respected, and not altogether unknown in this Colony, the happiest consequences may be confidently expected to result form his Administration. A Gentleman, named Brown, of tried abilities (having filled the same situation at St. Vincent's, we believe, accompanies his Excellency as private Secretary.
In the same Fleet came T. Williams, Es. Postmaster, who has, we are told, brought his brother with him, to remain here as deputy, and the much esteemed F. C. Otto, Esq. of this town, Merchant.

For the Rest of the Advertisements see Supplement.
