We are happy to announce that His Excellency the Governor is in a fair way of recovery, from the late sudden indisposition, with which he was attack'd on Sunday last, at Chateau Margo.

The second Mail for November is at length arrived, - its contents are of a most afflicting nature! they announce the near ruin of the Monarchy of Prussia, - the King flying before the rapid progress of the French Army, which has already taken possession of most of the principal Towns and Fortresses; nor can it be supposed he will long defer the seizure of Polmerania. The Swedish Troops have evacuated the territory of Lunenbourg, and embarked on the 3d of November at Lubeck for Stralsund [sic].

The American Schooner Betsey, Cap. Bowars, that arrived here on Wednesday Morning, was boarded 15 leagues to windward of Surinam by the French National Ship Favorite; - she had an English Brig, Prize in Company. She is the same Vessel that was taken on the Coast of Africa, by the Sybele and President, and is supposed to be fitted out of Cayene.

His Majesty's Ship Osprey, Capt. Clinch, arrived off this River, on the 14th instant, from Barbados, and on the 16th His Majesty's Ship Jason, Capt. Cochrane, and Brig Woolverine [sic], Capt. Collier, arrived also from Barbados. - They sail this day on a Cruize to Windward, where we hope they may fall in with the above Ship of the Enemy.

Vessel Entered and Cleared since our last.
