American Street, 29th May 1810.

I deem it a duty in me to do away any misrepresentation that has gone abroad respecting my assertion of your not having given in a fair Return of the Negroes belonging to the Boedel of Joseph Linton deceased.
The fact is, considering it was my duty as Executor to said Linton, I made application to the Secretary's Office for a copy of the Inventory as taken in Commoney Creek. This I found not to correspond with the number of Negroes he possessed, and not conceiving another Inventory had been taken in Town, made me draw the conclusion it was incorrect. As I am now satisfied that I was led into an error, and am convinced of the rectitude of the two Inventories, I trust you will consider this Letter an apology. I remain,
Your Obedt. Humb. Servt.
Chas. Edmonston.

We are, with respect to European intelligence, in precisely the same predicament as when our last went to Press. The almost unparalleled dearth of information precludes us from gratifying our Readers with a single article of real news; and very unlike the London Editors, we are by no means inclined to supply its place by invention - we must therefore await the next arrivals with patience, and console ourselves in the mean time with the old adage that "it is better to be silent, than say nothing."

This day being the anniversary of the restoration of Charles the Second, the Guns at the Fort were fired.

Died. - On Sunday morning, at the House of Messrs. Lacey & McEwen, Mr. Richard Atkinson.
Same day, Mr. Van Groningen.
