July 2.

It is with infinite pleasure we announce, not only the arrival of the Packet at Surinam, bearing the Mail for May, but that she also brings the agreeable information of the Northern Powers having coalesced openly against France!

This most desirable of all circumstances; this most welcome of all events; this most gratifying of all news which could reach us; comes in no questionable shape, and therefore we do not hesitate to pronounce it authentic! - And now, from this date, ye, who have watched, with regretful and indignant sensations, the rapidity with which Fate has urged the blood-stained Dynasty of Napoleon to its present eminence - mark! we say, its perhaps equally rapid fall! The tide is turned! Disaster and Defeat have already annihilated, in one quarter of the globe, the Flower of the Army of France - her eagle lies at the feet of England's Regent - her ships throng his ports - her warriors his prisons! And we hope soon to be able to inform you, that the new Coalition has completed her ruin!

We understand that the Price of Colonial Produce has risen considerably in consequence.

Since our last, we have to announce the arrival of the Sibella from London, the Eliza from Liverpool, and the Albion from London. The first, we are informed, brings a report of the Defeat of Massena by Marshal Beresford, in which action he is said to have lost 4000 men and the French 7000.

By the Eliza, we received Liverpool Papers to a late date.

Reports have been circulated for some time past of a number of privateers, belonging to French proprietors, being now in a state of preparation in the ports of America, and destined to cruize against the British trade in the West Indies. When it is recollected that any permission of this nature is expressly disallowed, not only by the common law of America, but by repeated positive enactments, no person will readily believe that there is any truth in the statement at all, and still less that any such vessels are fitting out with the knowledge and connivance of the American Government. We are sorry to observe that these rumours are assiduously magnified by some writers who are anxious to increase by every means in their power, the hostile feeling which subsists between England and America.

A Jamaica Paper states, that the excessive rains at St. Ann's Bay, in that island, had occasioned the lake at Rio-Ho, to overflow and inundate 2000 acres of pasture land, beside cane and wood-land. A smart shock of an earthquake was felt in Jamaica on the 22d of March, accompanied by a very high tide, which did some damage to the shipping. - Accounts had been received from the Indian coast of the murder of Captain Cromartie, and the crew (eight or ten in number,) of a sloop which sailed from Kingston in Jamaica for the purpose of landing a cargo of cattle. It appears that an altercation took place at Port Astrea, between Capt. Cromartie and his people, and the Indians employed in furnishing the cattle, who, being a very vindictive race, determined to make them atone with their lives for the quarrel; accordingly they secreted their bows and arrows in the bundles of grass brought on board for the subsistence of the animals, and made a despertate [sic] attack on these unfortunate persons, all of whom were destroyed, with the exception of two, who jumped into the sea, reached the shore, and sought protection from some Indian women. One of them was wounded with arrows in four places, besides the loss of an eye; he, however, managed to escape, and reached Amba, from whence he proceeded to Jamaica; the other afterwards quitted his protection to walk to Baya Honda, but was intercepted on the road, and also fell a sacrifice to the revengeful spirit of these savages.
