The Cork Fleet, consisting of six sail, arrived on Tuesday. While they were coming in, the homeward-bound vessels for Europe, were going out, which had a pleasing appearance.
The Cork Fleet was convoyed here by his Majesty's sloop Helena, which will remain here till further orders.
The trade from Surinam, &c. joined yesterday, and the fleet sailed the same day, rather unexpectedly, we believe, as some who meant to go passengers, we hear, have been left behind.
Some vessels also, we understand, have lost the opportunity.
Mrs. and Miss Lamaison, Mr. and Mrs. Van den Broek, Mrs. Herlin, and 6 young ladies, are going home passengers in the Grenada; and in the Jane are Mrs. Lawrence and family, a son of Jonas Fileen, Esq. and Mr. John Ryan.
The Jane and Demerary (two running ships) will sail in company either to-night or to-morrow morning.

The Court of Justice will meet on Monday next.

The Hon. J. C. M'Leod having resigned his seat in the said Court, on account of his going to reside in Berbice, the Hon. V. A. Heyliger has been elected in his stead.
