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
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
Vessels ENTERED and CLEARED.
