By the arrival, on Sunday last, of the Mail Boat, we are put in possession of London Papers to the 20th of June, (seven days later than those received by the Thomas from Liverpool.) - from which we have made such selections for this day's publication as we conceive to be of any material importance.

The Sloop William & Mary, from Barbados, whence she sailed on the 29th ult. arrived this morning - by her we have received the Mercury of the 28th, from which we make the following extract: - [local news - Barbados]

Letters for Europe must be in the Post-Office on Wednesday evening, as the Mail-Boat will sail early on Thursday morning.

It is with much pleasure we congratulate the Public on the arrival of the Company of Comedians from Barbados, who we understand are come to display their Talents on the Demerary Stage, and thereby dispel that dullness which has so long existed with regard to Public Amusements. That they will receive all possible encouragement and indulgence from the Public, we have not the least doubt, as it is generally understood they were favourites with the Public of Barbados, and accordingly were much enticed to remain amongst them. And certainly much praise is due to the Managers of our Theatre for their endeavours to render the Stage more perfect than it was, for whatever merits the Gentlemen Amateurs might have possessed, yet it must be acknowledged that their want of Female Performers, certainly was of a nature both unnatural and disgusting.

Vessels Entered and Cleared since our last.

August 7 Brig Betsey, Capt. Kikburn, from New-London - Horses, &c.
August 7 Schr. Phoebe, Capt. Saunders, for Nova Scotia.
