IN DEMERARY. [heading]

[Transcriber's note: no new or updated Vendues in this issue]

Not having had any arrival of consequence since Tuesday, we have been under the necessity of resorting to the London Papers by the last Packet, for what will be found in the present, and three subsequent columns. It is, however, we conceive, of an interesting nature.

Letters from St. Domingo to England, of the 16th October, in mentioning the French General Rigaud's death attribute it to a fit of apoplexy. At the period of his decease a negociation was carrying on between Christophe and Pet[illegible] which, according to report, had an abrupt and unfortunate termination. Christophe did not attempt to conceal his [illegible] at getting rid of a competitor, whose talents and enterprise he dreaded, and had employed agents to persuade Rigaud's followers to enter into his service. The ambitious spirit [illegible] this Chief pervades his Court: as his anxiety to increase [illegible] naval forces is well known, many of his nobility and court [illegible] have advanced sums of money towards building and equipping vessels of war, besides purchasing shares in others, but the depredations which are committed on British and Spanish commerce in that quarter, and the facility with which pirate vessels escape capture, by obtaining shelter in the ports of St. Domingo, and occasionally procuring supplies of men and provisions. Trade was extremely dull at St. Domingo at the above date, produce very scarce, and not more than [illegible] vessels in port.

The Philadelphia Register, of Nov. 1, observes, that Judge Washington had reversed a decree of one of the District Courts, by which a national armed vessel is subjected to the jurisdiction of the Republican Admiralty Courts, if found within the harbours of the United States; and on the simple claim of a private citizen. The vessel in question was seized by Bonaparte, under the Rambouillet Decree; and taken immediately into his service, without any form of adjudication. On her arrival in the port of Philadelphia, she wa libelled, and, by the sentence of the superior Court, restored to her American owners.
