On Monday morning the first Mail for December arrived from Barbados, by which we have received London Papers to the 5th December inclusive; - their contents are various but not of that satisfactory description which we should wish to lay before our readers: - it will be seen by our extracts that the Austrians have been making movements as if with intention to co-operate with the Russians, who it appears fell back upon their main body, upon learning the advance of the French. A very considerable part of French Army is advancing into Poland.

The Ship Demerary, Capt. Inglis, arrived in this River yesterday from Liverpool, which she left on the 5th ult. - We are under particular obligations to a Gentleman who has kindly favour'd us with Liverpool Papers to the 3d of January, which contain London News to the 1st: - no material events had occurred at that period, by which any change for the better could be much hoped for; - we however have made extracts of those articles most worthy of attention.

By a Brig which arrived from Halifax on Wednesday last, Capt. Murray, formerly Commander of the Lord Lavington Mail-Boat, came Passenger, - he reports their having been boarded by the Jason Frigate, Captain Cochrane, who informed them of their having Captured and sent into Barbados the Favorite Sloop of War.
