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!

Rumours 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:

"By a running ship, arrived at Surinam, we understand London Papers were received, to the 7h and 8th of January, which state


To be in a progressive state of recovery!"

The Windsor Castle Packet, the Brig William Rathbone, and the Ship Caledonia, are arrived at Barbados.

The 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.


Feby. 18. Sloop Blackbird, Capt. Coverley, from Barbados - Sundries.
-------- Schr. Good Intent, Strickland, Do. do.
-------- Amelia, Darrell, Dominique, - Seasoned Slaves.

Feby. 15. Bark Jane, Capt. Cross, for Portland.
----- 16. Schr. Energlen, Cox, Barbados.

[Mutilated - cut out - bottom half of the middle column]


American 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.

The 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.

[Transcriber's note: most European news not transcribed.]

The 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.

Does 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!
