The Packet with the April Mail for these Colonies entered our River on Sunday last, and will sail for England on Sunday next, at three o'clock. The most important intelligence, contained in our file of London Papers, brought by the Packet, has been already laid before the public, but in the course of the regular series now before us, we have, however, found the following variety of minor interesting matter.
[Transcriber's note: not transcribed - European news]

From the London Papers brought by the Packet.

Several new Regulations respecting Commerce have taken place in France. They are alluded to in several private communications from Paris, under date of the 17th March. The French Government had come to no determination respecting such American vessels and their cargoes as had been carried into their ports between the 2d of November and the 2d of February; but respecting those that might arrive after the 2d of February, a determination had been promulgated to the effect that the return cargo should be taken away in the products of France in the following proportions, viz. half in silk of Lyon, a fourth in brandies or wine, and the remainder in such other articles as the shipper might deem most valuable to his freighter.

It is stated that the Bank of Hamburgh has been plundered, and that three wagons of specie have already been sent off from its treasury in the direction of Paris.

An unpleasant occurrence took place a few weeks ago off Gonaives, in the Isle of St. Domingo. An English sailor, who had been taken in an American vessel, captured by one of Christophe's cruizers, contrived to escape on board the Hyperion frigate, which was laying off Gonaives, and claimed British protection. The Hyperion's boat happened to have gone in for water, and as she was about to return (it having been ascertained that the man would find protection on board the frigate) she was fired into, and three of her crew were killed. This circumstance so enraged the crew of the Hyperion, that they laid the vessel alongside the town of Gonaives, with the design of knocking it to pieces, from which they were only restrained by the consideration that their Captain was on shore, and in the hands of the inhabitants. On his return on board, they demanded to be allowed to storm the fort, a request which was very properly refused, though it had nearly produced a mutiny.

The French fleet in the Scheldt is believed to be ready for a start. To man this armament, it is conjectured that the privateers and fishing boats, with which the coast of France so lately swarmed, have been stripped of their most useful hands. There are three British squadrons watching this fleet, viz. the fleet off the Texel – that under Admiral Fisher in Hosely Bay – and the squadron in the Downs under Admiral Reynolds.

The Governor of Anholt only received the colours for the battalion on the evening previous to the attack; and they met with the best possible consecration - a ball through them, on the field of battle.
