The Tragedy of Douglas, announced in our last for Tuesday next, is postponed until Friday - it will we understand introduce to the public two new Amateurs in the Characters of Norval and Glenalvon.

We are favored with the following by a Correspondent: -
Last Tuesday noon a Schooner Boat belonging to Jno. Henley Esq. was upset by a sudden gust of wind in Essequebo River, nearly opposite Plantn. Two Brothers, Mr. James Wilson, Dr. Flood, Mr. Hofstede, and Mr. Guthrie were Passengers from Fort Island going to Leguan; fortunately for them a Sloop the property of J. P. Muncker Esq. observed them go down and immediately tacked about to their assistance, picked them and the crew all up, used them in a manner truly humane, and landed them at Parica, where General Dalrymple had that moment arrived to embark on board a Boat sent there to convey him to Fort Island; but not regarding his own convenience he was pleased to order her to Sail after the Wreck to endeavour if possible to save her; Robt. Gordon Esq. who was with the General, went in her and used every exertion as did also Archd. Iver Esq. by lending his Schooner which was soon after passing. Every thing was done to get the Wreck in shore without effect, when night coming on they put out an anchor and cable from her and loosed the tow-rope in case of getting foul in the night. On the morning they found she had parted the cable, drifted farther up the River, and was standing with her Bows right down and part of her Stern only could be seen now and then above water. The Passengers speak in the highest terms of the attention and benevolence of J. P. Muncker, C. M. Overweg and Eberhardi Esqrs. on board the Sloop towards them, as well as the particular concern evinced by General Dalrymple.

Vessels Entered and Cleared since our last.
May 11 Brig Carleton, Wm. McIntosh from Whitehaven - Lime & Coals.
May 11 Schr. Phoenix, Frs. Petict for Barbados.
Schr. Jackman, Jno. Merchant, Barbados.
