On Monday last the Penelope, from Barbados, arrived in the River; she left thence at the same time with the Mail-Boat, consequently brings no other news than what we have already laid before our readers.
On Wednesday the Betsey Lugger, from Barbados, (via Berbice) which she left on the 11th, arrived here, bringing Barbados Papers to the 10th which contain nothing very interesting, if we except the Capture of Curracoa, and another American account of the re-capture of Buenos Ayres, which will be seen in the following extract: -

We are happy to find that the late Expeditions into the Bush have been attended with such good effect, for 29 of those deluded people were brought in on Monday last at Peter's Hall. A Negro belonging to Plantation Vlissingen, (who himself had been in the Bush, until his Excellency the Governor's late amnesty,) was the bearer of the promise of pardon upon their return, which they gladly embraced, from the circumstance of their being reduced to the most wretched state, by the burning of their Camps, &c.
