The arrival of the Sloop First Attempt, has put us in possession of Barbados Papers to the 20th instant, and the two following articles are all that are worthy of more than common attention:

[Transcriber's note: omitted - 1st European news; transcribed - 2nd news at Barbados]

"A Swedish Officer has arrived here from St. Bartholomew, to solicit the interferance [sic] of our Commanders in Chief on this station, in preserving that Island to the lawful Monarch of Sweden (under the present assumed name of Count Gottorp), the Inhabitants appearing inclined to submit to the existing authority of the Mother Country, under the Crown Prince Bernadotte. We know not how far they have met his wishes, but he had a long conference with Rear Admiral Sir Francis Laforey, Bart. on board the Dragon. [sic - no ending double quote]

Neither time or room would permit in our last, any thing further than what appeared respecting this gentleman, whose departure for Europe will long be regretted, by all who had the pleasure of knowing him - for his hospitality was only equalled by his urbanity. Early in the morning (Saturday), the Governor, Colonel Stewart, and the rest of the Officers of the Royal Regiment, with some of the Principal Inhabitants of the Colony, met at the Colonel's to escort the General to the water-side; and on his going on board, the fort fired a salute, which was returned by His Majesty's Brig Demerary, in which the General embarked for the purpose of joining the Sisters, carrying with him the good wishes of every one, for his safe arrival in Europe.

The Albion, Capt. Holmes, the Nereid, Capt. Johnson, the Pilgrim, Capt. Horn, and the Demerary, Capt. Dougall, may be daily expected in our river.


A corps of 1200 seamen, obtained in the different parts of Italy, lately passed through Liege, it appears, for Antwerp. They were said to be volunteers, but were nevertheless escorted by 150 horse and 300 foot soldiers.


Apr. 29 Brig Sophia, Cap Passmore, from Bristol, Gen. cargo.
------- Sloop First Attempt, Thomas, Barbados, Beef, & Pork, &c. for the Contractors.
------- Brig Louisa, Fairclough, Liverpool, - Gen. cargo.

CLEARED. - None.
