We are happy to state that the apprehensions entertained for the safety of the mail, were ill founded. It at length reached this port in the Reasonable, Capt. Carter, late on Thursday evening, after a most unreasonable passage of 17 days, part of which she was becalmed off Oronoko. The Post Office was crowded at an early hour the next morning; every person being of course extremely solicitous for his papers. The calm which Captain Carter experienced, however, very much ruffled the countenances of many, particularly those who (from having betted a trifle, perhaps,) and from the long delay, concluded that both the August mails must have come, and therefore expected to receive the terms of Peace, already cut and dried to their hands. In short, the letters and papers are of no later date than we were before in possession of from the kindness of friends; but, having now received them regular, we have been enabled to select many things which we could not before notice. Mr. Williams, naturally imagining the inhabitants of Berbice would be equally anxious, dispatched a messenger with the letters there the same day.

His Majesty's Brig Demerara, Capt. Patterson, put into Berbice on Sunday evening last, after a cruise to windward, whence she again sailed on Tuesday, and arrived here on Thursday morning. Capt. Patterson brings advice of a most gallant action having been fought, a few days ago, to windward of Surinam, between his Majesty's gun-brig the Swinger, of 14 eighteen-pounders, and a French frigate of 36 guns. The very superior force of the enemy was not discovered till there was not alternative but to fight or run ashore; on which the captain consulted his officers, when every man nobly determined to fight. The action accordingly soon commenced with great spirit on both sides; and, in the end, the tight little true heart of oak completely bear the Frenchman off. The gun brig, as may be expected, is very much cut up in her rigging, &c. and has some men killed and wounded; but we are not yet in possession of minute particulars.

The Howe brig, Capt. Lusk, one of the London Fleet, laden principally with Government stores, arrived on Wednesday evening. She parted from the fleet 10 days before, in the latitude of Barbados. There were three more for this port, viz. the Hawkesbury, Paxton, and Jane, and there are three vessels now off the Bar, supposed to be them.
The Harriet guineaman came in last night.

The Court of Rolls and Commissary Court of Essequebo and Demerary will meet on Monday; and on Wednesday there will be a meeting of the Board of the Orphan Chamber.
