ALEX. TINNE, Loco Secretarii.

From Papers brought by the Caledonia, we learn that engagements took place in the neighbourhood of Almeida, between Wellington and Massena, on the 3d, 4th, and 5th of May, in which the loss was great on both sides: but, we have been informed, that on Sunday last, a Vessel direct from Lisbon, (twenty-seven days' passage) arrived in Berbice, and brought the more important information of the junction of the divisions under Wellington and Beresford - of an attack, in consequence, on the main body of the enemy - of its total defeat - and of the mutual loss being estimated at between twenty and thirty thousand men! This desperate conflict, it is said, took place on the 25th of May; a conflict, which if true, has not only decorated the Allied Army with never-fading laurels, but has destroyed the most warlike Banditti which France could bring into the field, and has doubtless decided the fate of the Peninsula!

Four P. M. - We have delayed putting our Paper to press till this moment, from the hope of being able to ascertain the names of the Vessels now standing for the river, and of course the news they bring; but have not succeeded. We have been more anxious in this respect, because they are doubtless in possession of the fact, whether a Northern Coalition really exists! the coalition, which we announced on Tuesday last, and which our neighbour, (no doubt for reasons best known to himself,) thought proper to declare "unauthentic!"

Extract of a letter from Liverpool, to Greenock:-
"As a further proof of the confidence that many people have of the trade being speedily opened between this country and the United States, a merchant here has received orders from his correspondent in America (who is well acquainted with the intentions of the Government) to dispatch his ship, not in ballast, but with a cargo of salt and crates, in consequence of which, she will sail immediately with a full cargo."

On the motion of Mr. Wilberforce, in the British House of Commons, on the 21st of May, a translation of the Spanish code of laws, lately in force in the island of Trinidad, together with various documents, were ordered to be laid before the House. It is supposed that he intends taking up the question respecting General Picton and the tortured Louisa.

The Friends of the Anti-Royal Gazette appear to consider its Conductor at least entitled to a PATENT - he having discovered a method, by which news from England can be brought to Demerary in less than a WEEK! - See the Paper of Wednesday last.
