June 13, 1807.

Three vessels from England, viz. the Fame, Capt. Brand, Hercules, Scott, and Sisters' Providence, Pavey, came in on Tuesday. They left Portsmouth the 14th April. There were no vessels for Berbice in the fleet.
The King's ship which convoyed these vessels and which appeared to be a very fast sailer, immediately stood off for Barbados.
The same evening his Majesty's sloop Herod, Capt. Dix (we believe), with six homeward bound vessels from Berbice alone (she not having been able to beat up to fetch those from Surinam), joined the sixteen from this port, which were waiting over the Bar, and the next morning they all sailed.

C. Remy, Esq. Deputy Receiver of Essequebo, with his family, and - Ysendoorn, Esq. of Rotterdam, are passengers on board the Amelia, Capt. Shadforth; and Joseph Beete, jun. Esq. and family are on board the Tarleton, Capt. Jackson.

We understand that the lovesick paramour is also embarked, with his faithful Dulcinea; and that they have preferred taking their passage in either the Dove or the Pelican, as emblematical of Conjugal and Maternal Affection! The Furniture of the Esquire was previously converted into what often alone makes the man of Consequence - Cash! And nothing could be more capable of displaying a general idea of taste and refined delicacy, than the neatness and choice of this boedel. It is to be hoped that the smell of Tar and Pitch on the passage will not disagree with the irritable nerves of this gentleman, especially as the Cabin Boy may happen to be a little filthy. And it is equally to be hoped, that 53 degrees North latitude will prove of service in melting that frozen matter lodged above the eyebrows, which has remained so long in its natural state, notwithstanding a long residence in 6 degrees, 40 minutes.

A neutral schooner came in on Monday, last from Barbados, in seven days. She brought newspapers of that island of the 30th ult. but they contain nothing material. The 2d April mail had not arrived there when she sailed.

His Majesty's tender Subtle, Capt. Downer, arrived from Barbados, last night, with dispatches.

His Majesty's ships Rosario and Curieux captured on the 6th ult. the Spanish schooner El Johanna from Vera Cruz to St. Sebastian, laden with coffee, cocoa, indigo, &c. and sent her to Barbados.

We are happy to announce that, by a letter received this day from his Excellency Governor Bentinck, he had safely arrived at St. Kitts, in very improved health and had taken his passage in the Freeland packet for England, which was to sail in two days after the date of his letter.

We are happy to hear that the Ball to be given on Monday next, in honour of His Majesty's Birth Day, is likely to be numerously attended by many respectable and loyal subjects. There are, we understand, no less than Sixty Subscribers, exclusive of all the Officers of the garrison.

Vessels Entered and Cleared Since Our Last.
