The Packet from England being now almost hourly expected, we
flatter ourselves this is the last number of the Royal Gazette which will make
its appearance in a state of political darkness, and without its (humbly
presumed) usual attribute of annihilating public anxiety, rectifying public
errors, and confirming the public mind in all its just conceptions!
are innumerable; and, did we wish to mislead, a better opportunity never
offered! But we are not retailers of common reports; and if,
by chance, an erronious [sic] one did ever "steal a subtle
passage" to that part of our paper which we could ever
wish to be sacred alone to truth, we have always possessed grace
enough to contradict it, and apologize for the involuntary delusion! - And yet,
averse as we are to give unauthenticated information, the Barbados
Papers, received by the sloop Blackbird, have, in the present instance, seduced
us from our accustomed practice, by "something so pleasing," so truly
gratifying to the feelings of affectionate loyalty, that we cannot resist the
insertion of the following article:
a running ship, arrived at Surinam, we understand London Papers were received,
to the 7h and 8th of January, which state
be in a progressive state of recovery!"
Windsor Castle Packet, the Brig William Rathbone, and the Ship Caledonia, are
arrived at Barbados.
House of Assembly at Jamaica, with its usual patriotic alacrity, has already
taken up the subject of the new arrangements made by the Postmasters-General,
relative to the West India Packet, and a Report is now before His Excellency
the Governor, which will, no doubt, soon find its way into the British Cabinet.
– A similar conduct in Demerary, Surinam, and Berbice, would perhaps be
attended with the mos beneficial consequences.

Papers have been received, the contents of which are of much political
importance, not only as concerning the situation of affairs between that
country and Great Britain, but particularly, interesting as it regards France.
The President of the United States has laid before Congress a late
correspondence between General Turreau, Minister Plenipotentiary of the French
Emperor, in America, and Mr. Smith, Secretary of State, relative to certain
restrictions in the allowing of Certificates of Origian to American vessels,
which would prevent their trading to any other port than those of France
– not even the allies of that country. Mr. Smith remonstrated against
this mode of proceeding, and explained, in an apparently spirited letter
to the French Minister, that this would be merely a nominal favour under the
repeal of the Decrees of his government, and such as could not be admissible by
America. The articles of cotton and tobacco being also specifically prohibited
to be imported into France, the American Secretary justly observes, that these
repeals have been merely changed by substituting in their stead a law by which
nothing favourable is granted to the United States on the part of France, and
that therefore the Merchants were placed in an equal dilemma, and might as well
keep their vessels in port, as the freedom of trade, which the revocation of
the Decrees, led them to suppose the enjoyment of, was thus prevented. These
remonstrances were answered by references to later communications received by
the Consul General of France in America, than those Gen. Turreau, had in
possession, which he professes to have only been informed of since Mr.
Smith last addressed him; these instructions of his Government allow the importation
of Cotton under certain regulations, and he had no doubt but that other
modifications would be adopted.
mode intended to be adopted by America in the event of our not acceding to her demand in this respect,
it would appear, is not that of a general Non-intercourse, but simply the
enacting of a Non-importation Law, that will prohibit the
receiving of manufactures, &c. from Great Britain or any part of her
dominions, but which will allow exportations from the United States to Foreign
Ports, without being liable to the restrictions imposed by the former
Non-intercourse Act. Petitions from Merchants in various parts of the Union,
for an exemption from the operations of this Law, have been presented to
congress, and referred to a Committee selected for that purpose.

sentence in the case of the American ship Brunswick, carried into Antigua in
June, 1808, and condemned as French property, has been reversed by the Court of
Appeals in London.
The Poetical Communication of E - will appear in our next number,
in its present state if required - but we would
recommend it to his re-consideration; in which case we make no doubt, it will
attain that degree of perfection he appears so capable of bestowing upon it.
L. Z. conceive that the Royal Gazette will ever become the vehicle of such trash as we have
received from him; an article without sound or sense; in fact, neither poetry
or prose [sic – neither/or]; forbid it Genius!
