A small Sloop arrived here on Monday last from Barbados, and brings the Mercury to the 18th instant, by which it appears that the First Mail for September had arrived there and may be hourly looked for here.

We find by an extract from the London Paper of the 3d of Septbr., that the Ports of Holland are open for the exportation of all Goods to England; except Bark and Hides; - it appears that this relaxation of Bonaparte's Decree, has taken place in consequence of serious remonstrances having been made by the Dutch, who were reduced to the most wretched extreme, from the total extinction of Commerce, and being apprehensive of those consequences which might arise from desperation - Bonaparte has made this concession much against his will.

A great number of Vessels had actually arrived in England from Holland direct.

Admiral Sir A. Cochrane has issued a Proclamation ordering a most Rigorous Blockade of the Islands of Martinique and Guadeloupe.

On the 3d inst. the Belette captured a fine French Ship off the Coast of Cayenne, laden with Wines, Brandy, and a valuable assorted Cargo, - and has arrived in Barbados with her Prize.

General Bowyer is dead, as well as Lord Ducie, late Provost Marshal General of Barbados.

Lieut. Yetts of the Schooner Laura has been tried by a Court Martial and broke, but on account of his long services he is recommended to half pay.

Died] - On Tuesday Morning last, Mr. M. Campbell, of the Union Coffee House.
