A Danish Schooner arrived here on Wednesday Morning from Barbados, at the time she left, there was a general Embargo, she, however escaped after being fired at several times by one of the Forts, (the above Schooner was in so bad a state that she sunk in this River the Day after her arrival) the Embargo is said to be in consequence of an Expedition fitting out there, supposed to be destined against St. Thomas and St. Croix. The 1st September Packet had arrived at Barbados.

Rogers of 6 guns and only 28 men; - the Privateer attempted to board but Capt. Rogers at that moment brought one of his guns to bear nearly fore aft the Enemy, when he ordered it to be loaded with 100 musket balls, and instantly discharged which produced a dreadful carnage on board the Enemy, those men who remained ran from their quarters, when Capt. Rogers, with the greatest presence of mind, jumped on board with only five of his own men, secured the main hatch way, ordered the men up one by one and secured them in their own Irons which he obliged them to produce, the Packet had 3 men killed and 10 wounded, the Enemy had 33 killed and 31 wounded.

She is the same Vessel which captured the four Merchant Vessels lately from this River.

Four strong Privateers have been sent into Barbados by the Blonde Frigate, Capt. Ballard.
