The first Mail for June reached here on Wednesday - its contents are not of that highly interesting nature which we had been led to expect.
We are happy to see by the same Paper [transcriber's note: Barbados Mercury] that a Fleet of Vessels under Convoy of His Majesty's Brig Emelus, of 18 guns, Capt. Stupart, from Halifax, has arrived safe in Barbados, with a very seasonable supply of Provisions, &c. We hope to see a continuance of those measures which will insure to the West Indies in general, a regular supply of those articles which we have too long been in the habit of receiving from the United States, thus, the American Embargo may become eventually, if not immediately, a source of emolument to ourselves and vexatious to the Americans.
The Claude Scott Brig which arrived here on Thursday morning was one of the above fleet.
His Majesty's ship Virginie, Capt. Brace, has captured a very fine Dutch frigate called the Guelderland, after a smart action.
His Majesty's Brig Attentive, Lieut. Carr, arrived here on Sunday last, and took the Vessels from hence under Convoy to the Rendezvous, and the Laura returned into Port, and yesterday left this for Surinam with the Brig Faith under Convoy.
The Skipjack returned from a Cruize on Sunday morning. Yesterday His Majesty's Brig Recruit arrived off the Barr, she came for the purpose of Convoying the Fleet from hence, but has been more than 10 days from Barbados.
We are much concerned to state the loss of His Majesty's Brig Netley, which had been ordered from Barbados in quest of an Enemy's Privateer reported to be to the Windward of that Island. She was about 12 miles distant from the Southwardmost point of the Island, when under close reef'd top-sails, she was upset by a sudden squall and instantly filled with water; - we are sorry to add that out of her Crew, officers and men together consisting of 81, nine alone were saved, and that, by the fortunate appearance of the Julia Brig, Capt. Yarker, which the same night arrived at the spot where she had sunk, when one of the men still afloat called out as the Vessel neared him, when Capt. Yarker instantly put out his boat and saved him with 8 others, although the night was very dark and boisterous. Mr. Row who was one of the Officers is saved, with 6 seamen and 2 boys. Lieut. Bermon the Commander is universally lamented, by all who knew him, as a valuable and active Naval Officer.
Vessels Entered and Cleared since our last. [heading]
