We find, by the Berbice Gazette, that Capt. J. Caple has obtained permission to establish a weekly passage boat thence to this Colony, and vice versa. His schooner has excellent accommodations for four passengers, and is to sail every Monday from Berbice, and every Thursday from this port.

The following are the dimensions of the Spanish launch, lately captured, as taken by a Gentleman who went on board out of curiosity, viz. 47 feet long, and 21 feet, 1 inch broad; she can row 24 sweeps. The prisoners are treated extremely well; they have not only money allowed them, but are permitted to go to market themselves, in parties of three or four at a time, to purchase what they want.

Mr. Peter Gordon, of Berbice, was on board the last cartel which went from Guadaloupe to Barbados, but he died at sea on the 25th ult.
