to be wise by others harm"
above old Adage, Mr. Printer, is very applicable to many of your Neighbours in
Stabroek whose Caution and Vigilance appear not to have been aroused even by
the late dreadful Calamity at Trinidad. I observe not only numbers of Kitchens
built of wood, but even without Chimneys, and Smiths' Shops and other Dangerous
Trades in Huts of Wood which are nearly in a state as inflammable as Tinder,
and I tremble lest by our own supineness we should be soon reduced to solicit
the Relief which we are just called on to extend to our Neighbours.
The First Packet for March reached Barbados on the 13th instant: - this intelligence was received here by way of Berbice, where the Schooner of Captain Parker is arrived. The Mail Boat is hourly expected here.
The contents of the Mail as far as we have seen do not appear to be highly interesting.
We have been favoured with two Barbados Papers containing London News to the 3d ult. which we have extracted.
We understand that General Bowyer Commander in Chief on this Station, is at this time in Surinam, and is very shortly expected here in the Hussar Frigate.
The whole of the Squadron of Line of Battle Ships under Admiral Sir A. Cochrane are returned to Barbados from Mariagalante.
It appears that the Rochefort squadron of whose destination we have been so long ignorant of, has gone to Toulon, and that Admiral Sir Richard Strachan is gone after it.
Vessels Entered and Cleared since our last. [heading]
FROM THE LONDON PAPERS. [heading]
Feb. 23. - . . .
Advices were yesterday received from France of the capture of three American vessels by the Enemy's cruizers, viz. the Charlotte, bound from Plymouth to Gottenburgh (mentioned in our extracts from French Papers yesterday), the Two Marys, and the Octavin. The latter ship had touched at a British port, and was in consequence sent into Belle Isle, where her cargo was landed and the crew made prisoners. The Two Marys was boarded and examined at sea by a British cruizer; she afterwards put into Calais, where the Captain innocently relating the fact, the ship was declared a lawful prize under the late decree of Bonaparte. The French Papers mention two more instances of that Decree having been rigorously acted upon, namely, the capture and confiscation of the American ships Mary, from New York to Belle Isle, and the Catherine, captured in the Mediterranean by the Josephine privateer. The rigorous enforcement of the order has been indeed long a matter of universal notoriety.
3. - The rumour, that Ministers had received an account of the determination of
the American Government with respect to this Country, is probably untrue; it
had its rise in the circumstance of a dispatch, said to be received by Mr.
Pinckney from Mr. Armstrong, at Paris, which it was alledged contained the
resolution of the American President, after being made acquainted with our
Orders in Council. We believe, however, that Mr. Pinckney has received no such
dispatch, and that we are still without any news whatever of the effect
produced by these Orders on the United States.
