Rio Demerary, 2e April, 1811.

Three o'clock, P. M. - The Schooner Nancy in just arrived from Barbados, by which we have received Papers to the 2d of April. Their second January Packet is arrived from Falmouth, after a passage of 36 days, but they have no intelligence later than what we are already in possession of.

Independent, therefore, of our promised particulars of the Capture of Banda, we have no article of news to present to our readers, in this number; but we do no much lament, for as they all, doubtless, glory in the sovereignty of the British Flag; in the invincibility of the British Seamen; even those, we believe, would suffice, had we folios to insert!

Died - on Monday last, H. Barnwell, Esqr.

Promised in a former Paper.

It has been ours to record (thanks to the God of Battles!) innumerable feats of British naval heroism, but never one approaching so near the marvellous, as the conquest of Banda; so near, that while we write, we feel proud and delighted, but while we think, we nearly doubt! – doubt, not an attempt at such a conquest by British officers and British seamen, (for what will they not attempt?) but it is the actual success of such attempts that staggers our belief! And yet, why doubt at all, for where are the bounds which can circumscribe them, the dangers which can appal, and the valour that can rival theirs? – This is indeed a conquest! a conquest, which will immortalize the names of Cole and Kench, and rank them with the number of illustrious Seamen! a conquest, not from muscular strength, not from superiority of numbers, but from native valour, from heroic resolution, from consummate skill, and from astonishing presence of mind!
Banda, although the principal and largest of the nutmeg-islands, in the Indian ocean, is, nevertheless, a small one, being not above twenty miles long, and not half so broad. Its shape is that of a horse-shoe. In the middle is a large bay, whereon stands the chief town, surrounded with groves of nutmeg-trees. There are two remarkable mountains; one, which has between three and hour hundred stone-steps to its top, on which there is a fort – and from the other flow several brooks which water the country. The island is divided into three parts, each three leagues round, and well fortified at every landing place. It is surprisingly fertile, yielding oranges and other fruit in great abundance, but its chief production are nutmeg-trees, of which there are forests. Its chief dependencies are the isles of Poleron, Rosinging, Poolaway, and Gonapi, and they lie between 4 and 5 degrees of S. lat. And 127 and 128 E. lon. These islands are subject to earthquakes. They contain about 6000 inhabitants. Have three harvests in an year.
The following private Letter gives an excellent account of the capture.

            "His Majesty's Ship Barracouta, Indian Ocean
                        October 8th. 1810.
"Having met a merchant ship on her way to England, I avail myself of the opportunity of sending you the earliest account of the Capture of Banda; and, as the Public dispatches cannot reach England for some time after this, I take the liberty of giving you a detailed account of the attack.
"The Caroline, Piedmontaise, and Barracouta, arrived off Banda on the 8th August, and have too at a considerable distance from the land, to avoid being seen, (a hope which was frustrated by some fishing boats.) At ten at night, being about four miles from the harbour, the boats were hoisted out, and assembled alongside the Caroline, containing 390 men. At twelve the boats shoved off, under the command of Capt. Cole, the weather being then tolerably fine, it soon, however, became dark and squally, attended with a boisterous sea, which occasioned the separation of the boats, and, on arriving at the appointed rendezvous, Capt. Cole found the original force diminished to 180 men. After, remaining until three o'clock, in hopes of being joined by the missing boats, it became necessary to push on for Banda Neira, still three miles off, or return to our ships mortified and disappointed. Capt. Cole fortunately determined to go on, and on approaching the shore, we found, by several alarm guns being fired, that the enemy were expecting us. The badness of the weather, which had before acted against us, now became our protection; for the boats grounded undiscovered in a heavy squall of wind and rain, within a hundred yards of a battery of ten 24-pounders, which was stormed in the rear, the centinel was killed by a pike, and sixty men were disarmed without firing a pistol. – After leaving a guard in the battery, the storming party headed by Capt. Kench, and the reserve by Capt. Cole, proceeded to Fort Belgica, by a narrow path on the skits of the town. The Bugle was then sounding the alarm of our landing; the enemy in Belgica reserved their fire until we got close to the walls. The scaling ladders were then placed between the guns, and the men mounted with a rapidity, exceeding all belief, not withstanding a very smart fire from the citidel [sic], and the surrounding bushes, both very ill-directed. After gaining possession of the lower works, the ladders were hauled up, and placed against the inner wall; the interval occasioned by this, seemed to give the enemy fresh courage; but when they saw the ladders firmly fixed, they seemed panic-struck, and fled in all directions, leaving the colonel commandant and ten men killed, and two captains and thirty men prisoners. The guns, near which the ladders were placed, fortunately burnt priming, owing to the heavy rains, and thus we found ourselves in possession of this strong citadel, without the loss of a single man, just in time for the sun to rise on the British flag, and to shew us our commanding situation; having Fort Nassua and the town immediately under our guns. A flag of truce was dispatched to the Governor, offering protection to private property on the surrender of the island, which was refused; however, a shot from Belgica, and a threat of storming the town and forts, produced an immediate and unconditional surrender, and 700 disciplined troops and 300 militia grounded their arms to us. Capt. Cole's feelings, at this moment must have been in unison with his followers, proudly grateful. The enemy had notice of our approach, at six o'clock in the evening, and dispatched a great force to the place where Admiral Rainier formerly landed; an event which Capt. Cole had foreseen.
The enemy, taking advantage of the flag of truce, which we had flying in Belgica, opened a fire on the shipping just entering the harbour, but a few shot from that commanding fort, drove them from their guns. Fortunately, the nature of the attack, required no firing from the assailants, as the boats grounded some distance from the shore, and the men had to wade up to the middle in water. The enemy were drawn up at their guns, with lighted matches.
Banda Neira, and its dependencies, export 900,000l. worth of spice annually to Batavia; we found about 400,000l. worth of spices at the time of the capture.
The Piedmontaise remains at Banda in charge of the island. We are now on our way to Admiral Drury with the dispatches, and the Caroline is making arrangements to supply provisions from the neighbouring islands.
Lieutenant of the Barracouta."
