ERRATUM. - in line 7 of the first paragraph, in the Advertisement from the Inspector-General, for "Chimney or fire hearth," read "Chimney and fire hearth."

The Swaggerer brig of war arrived last night, and has brought the following most important intelligence: -
[Transcriber's note: most European news not transcribed.]

The Swaggerer also brought Barbados Papers to the 16th instant.

We learn from the Leeward Islands, that they have lately experienced very tempestuous weather, and much damage has been sustained, particularly at St. James, Antigua, where it commenced on the 7th inst. at about eight o'clock in the morning, and continued with unremitting violence until five in the afternoon, during which his Majesty's brig Guachapin (employed as a guard-vessel); a merchant ship, the St. Andrew, with a full cargo; and about twenty five sail of droughing vessels and smaller craft were lost.

Dutch Papers to the 28th of May are now in London. They contain an article which shews the severity of police to which the Dutch are exposed under their merciless taskmasters. The Exchange at Amsterdam must be shut by three o'clock - the streets leading to it must be immediately evacuated, and all who shall be found in them afterwards are to be treated as disturbers of the public peace.

In the British Parliament, the Chancellor of the Exchequer has, in consequence of the rejection of the Distillery Bill by the Lords, moved for leave to bring in a Bill to empower the Lords of the Treasury to exonerate the distillers of spirits from sugar, from the duties imposed by the 48th of the King, he will also propose a bill for regulating the duties upon wash from Malt, an increase of the duties on foreign spirits, with the exception of rum, and a temporary suspension of the intercourse with Ireland.
