The Packet bearing the December Mails for these Colonies, arrived last night, and will sail again about Thursday next. The London Papers by this conveyance, are only to the 21st of that month; and therefore do not contain much novelty. The price of Colonial Produce, we are happy to find still looks upwards; and there is no doubt but the distillation from grain will be almost immediately prohibited. - His Majesty's health was much the same.

The Schooner Jackman, Capt. Merchant, also arrived on Thursday, from Barbados. The Papers of that Island are to the 25th ult.

Married - On the 30th November, Kenneth M'Leay, Esq. of Newmore, (late Deputy Paymaster-General on this station), to Isabella, eldest daughter of John Horne, Esq. of Stircoke.
