We entertained the animated hope, that, before the publication of the present number of the Royal Gazette, some vessel would arrive from England, capable of authenticating (by being in possession of official documents) the pleasing and important communication we made to our readers on Saturday last, respecting the military transactions in Spain; but, as we have been disappointed in that respect, we have endeavoured to make our paper as valuable as possible, by extracting, from the papers by the late arrivals, as many articles of foreign interest as our limits would permit.

[right pointing hand icon] Four P. M. - We stop the Press to announce the arrival of the Bridget, Capt. Kennan, from Liverpool, by whom we have been forwarded with a sight of a Paper in which are the Dispatches from Lord Wellington so anxiously looked for; but, we are sorry to state, that they do not realize all our expectations - inasmuch as no general battle has been fought, two smart skirmishes, the relief of Ciudad Rodrigo, and the falling back of the allied army into a stronger position, making up the whole of the intelligence.

Died. - Lately, in Barbados, T. G. Heyliger, Esq. of the House of Brumell and Heyliger, of this Colony.

On Thursday last, Mr. Alexander Simpson, Mason.
