For a knowledge of the late arrivals, we refer our readers to the Ship List, &c.; they are numerous, but we do not find that they bring any news.


ROTTERDAM, June 22. - On the 9th, took place the installation of our new Chamber of Commerce, under the auspices of Baron de Stasfart, Prefect of the Mouths of the Meuse. Having appointed 15 merchants to compose the Chamber, all of whom, with the exception of Mr. E. Suermondt, were present, and took the oaths, he addressed them as follows:
"Gentlemen, - The glory of arms does not suffice the hero who governs us. The title of Conqueror satisfies not his noble and generous ambition. He aspires to the still more glorious title of the Restorer of Commerce and of the national prosperity. Like another Henry IV, he wishes to be proclaimed the father of his subjects.
"Anxious to ascertain the wants of the most industrious cities of his empire, Napoleon the Great has assembled in each of them, under the denomination of a Consultative Chamber of Commerce, the merchants most distinguished by their information and discretion. Upon this principle it is, Gentlemen, that the choice of an enlightened Minister calls you to carry, periodically, to the foot of the throne the wishes of your fellow-citizens, the wishes of the good city of Rotterdam - that city whose flag once proudly waved over the two seas, and whose caduceus, rivalling the sceptre of the most powerful Monarchs, carried her conquests into another hemisphere.
"You will second the views of the beneficent genius who presides over our destinies; you will unite your efforts with his towards the attainment of Continental independence, and you will one day share with him the glory of having restored your country to its primitive splendour.
"As for me, Gentlemen, considering as I do the honour of presiding over you as one of the most pleasing prerogatives of the Prefecture, I shall frequently come among you, in quest of those lights and that information which I require, in order, in the most effectual manner, to contribute to the happiness of the new country which Napoleon the Great has given me - Long live the Emperor! Long live Napoleon the Great and well beloved!!
E. Bicker Caarten, in the name of his colleagues, made the following reply:
"Monsieur le Prefect, - We feel highly pleased at having the honour of seeing you here; and we return you infinite thanks for the gracious manner in which you have expressed yourself towards us upon the occasion of our installation. We expect to have frequently the honour of your presence at our meetings, in order, under your auspices, and guided by your lights, to promote the prosperity of commerce, which we further recommend to your powerful and gracious protection."

A LIGHT TERRIER BITCH, named Tigress, whoever can restore her shall be rewarded.
Apply to the Printer. Sept. 14th.
