The schooner Barbados, arrived yesterday from that Island, and placed Papers in our possession to the 12th Instant. Their contents are interesting, and the substance of which will be found in our subsequent columns.

Several Americans have also arrived since our last, but we do not find that they bring any accounts worth mentioning.

The sale of the ship Granger took place yesterday, at our Custom-House, and was knocked down to Capt. O'Brien, for f 53,510.


This heroically-defended Island has been again attacked by the Danes, the result of which has proved equally disastrous to the enemy, as glorious to its brave defenders. The Garrison of this Island, amounting we believe to not more than 150 to 200 men, is said to have made prisoners about 500 Danes. The official account had not reached England at the date of the paper containing this intelligence (26th August). The Governor of Anholt (Capt. Maurice, R.N.) being so much respected here and in the neighbouring Islands, this further proof of his gallant conduct will be very gratifying.


State of the Negotiation with Mr. Foster, &c. from an American Paper.

We understand, from a source that we cannot but respect, that Mr. Foster, believing the French Decrees to remain unrepealed, had proposed to the President that a Non-importation Law should be passed with France, placing her in the same situation, with respect to this country, as England; and in consideration thereof, his Government would be willing to rescind their Orders in Council - or, on the other hand produce proof of the actual revocation of the French Decrees, and then the Orders shall cease to operate, and be void. Mr. Madison, being unable to do the first without the assistance of Congress; and, perhaps, not having it in his power to perform the latter, did accordingly issue a Proclamation, convening them on the first Monday in November next. If Congress conclude that Bonaparte's Decrees are still in force, then there is no doubt they will pass the restrictive law, and a final settlement with England will be the consequence; as we are informed that Mr. Foster has instructions to make such arrangements with regard to minor points, as will obviate every material difficulty in their settlement. But should the President and Congress contend, contrary to our expectations, that the French Decrees are repealed, without producing proof of their revocation, and refuse to pass the Law against France, then we must confess there is a great probability of retaliatory measures from England, which may eventuate in a war. Mr. Foster, previous to Mr. Munroe's departure from Washington, had an interview with him which lasted several hours, and terminated satisfactorily to both Gentlemen. Mr. Foster, we learn, is making arrangements to stay in this country a considerable time.
Respecting the President and Little Belt - it has been long intimated that the Government approved of the conduct of Commodore Rodgers on that occasion, and that an investigation was therefore unnecessary: - the reverse of this however is now apparent, a Court of Inquiry having been appointed, and officially directed by the Secretary of the Navy, to be composed of Commodore Decatur, as President, and Captains Stewart and Chauncey; Nathan Sanford, Esq. officiating as Judge Advocate. The Court was to be held at New-York, where the Members were at the date of this account (26th August), and the proceedings were to be entered upon in a few days.


We extract the following paragraph from a late Glasgow Paper: - "Though there has been little improvement in the prices, a considerable deal of business has been done in our market during last week. In the articles of cotton, rum, and sugar, betwixt ninety and a hundred thousand pounds worth has been sold."

R. CAMPBELL, Master,

JOHN GRAY, Master,
