[Transcriber's note: this advertisement did not appear in an earlier issue.]

The Packet (which arrived on Saturday Evening,) will sail on Friday next, at Three o'clock.

By reference to our Ship List, the Public will become informed of the late Mercantile Arrivals and Departures. The Fortune, Capt. Wilson, from this Port, we understand, unfortunately stranded, but has since been carried into Swansea.

Independent of London Papers by the Packet, we have now before us Barbados Papers, to the 25th of June; but neither, we regret to say, corroborate, positively, our late statement of a Northern Coalition. We mentioned in our last, that such statement was contradicted by our neighbour [paper fold] was certainly premature, (no arrival at that time having taken place, absolutely capabale of sanctioning it,) as the manner it was done in, was indicative of the echoism of the Paper it appeared in; and therefore, we did not hesitate in expressing our conviction of the statement being ultimately correct – particularly, as we derived our information form Letters, whose Writers we imagined had too much of the gentlemen about them, to descend to a hoax!

By an Advertisement in this day's paper, it will be seen that the long-promised Panorama will be open for exhibition to-morrow; and a novelty of such a nature in this part of the world, will doubtless prove highly attractive. Not having seen the picture, we cannot enlarge on that subject, but from a knowledge of the consideration in which the Artist is held in London, by Connoisseurs, we make no doubt a sight of it will be as gratifying to the Public, as the performance is honorable to his genius.

By an arrival at Barbados, from Baltimore, we learn, that there has lately been an occurrence off the coast of America which led to serious discussion, originating in one of our frigates having impressed two men out of an American vessel. This discussion was continued between the President and the British Consul to that Government for some days, and the result was, that of the former directing the immediate departure of the United States' frigate President, Capt. Rodgers, to demand the restitution of those men, or in the event of this not being complied with, he was ordered to "capture" the British man of war. Now this certainly sounds well - it is remarkably lofty - its tone may answer in the Chamber of Government - but on the Ocean, Mr. Madison ought to have reflected, it is quite different; and he should at least have added to the instructions of Capt. Rodgers, the necessary proviso - "if possible;" for the capture of an English frigate is not one of the easiest things to be performed - no, not even by an American - as we guess Capt. Rodgers has ere this discovered: for that they have met, and the contest has been decided, there is no doubt - the Hetty (arrived at Barbados) having spoken the schooner Romney in the Chesapeake on the 26th May which informed that she had been boarded by a Lieutenant of the Chesapeake frigate in the Potomak, who stated, "that a battle had actually taken place between the President frigate and that of the British, but the result was not known."

The city of Edinburgh, on the 15th and 16th of April, was the scene of a ferment which threatened serious consequences, and which took its rise, as was said, in a quarrel between two tradesmen. On the night of the 15th, the mob praded the streets, and broke the windows of several persons who were obnoxious to them; the Magistrates, apprehensive that more mischief would be perpetrated on the 16th, and being determined to put a stop to the shameful tumult, called in a strong detachment of the military from the Castle to the aid of the police, when several of the rioters were taken into custody.

A singular change is about to take place in the British commercial relations with the East, and especially with China. For ages, the precious metals exported to the latter have been in a state of accumulation; a large portion of them will probably in a short time return to this part of the globe. An absolute want of raw materials of various descriptions has at length opened the eyes of the Chinese to the folly of retaining within their own Empire, through motives of jealous, a commodity which derives its chief value from its being considered as the only general instrument of commerce. The countries contiguous to China being now to experience the beneficial consequences of the change. Considerable supplies of specie have already reached various parts of India from China; and in Bengal, silver has recently been most abundant. Indeed, it is so plentiful at Calcutta, that the rate of interest, which in India has usually been extremely high, has fallen almost as low as in Europe. In some of the ships about to arrive from India, large supplies of dollars, and specie in general, are expected; and it is calculated, that, before any very long period elapses, we shall in this country receive from that quarter further supplies to the amount of seven millions of dollars.

A seizure of 10,000l. on the 25th of April, made at the Custom-house, London, of gold, in bars, regularly entered and sworn to at Guildhall as foreign gold. The boxes had passed the Custom house, and were on board ship when the discovery was made. It is supposed that some person employed in the melting of it into bars gave information that guineas were melted with the foreign gold.

The American Government has begun to organise, according to its Constitution, that part of the Floridas belonging to Spain, of which it has taken forcible and illegal possession. The Spaniards shew no disposition to acquiesce in this robbery, as they still keep [remaining brief text obscured by a paper fold]
