By the Opossum sloop-of-war, which arrived on Thursday, Barbados Papers have been received to the 31st ult.; the following, however, is the one article we have conceived of importance enough to copy:
"By the arrival of the Elizabeth man of war schooner from St. Thomas, information is received of an action having taken place between the Southampton frigate, Capt. Sir J. L. Yoe [sic - for Yeo], and a ship of war belonging to the Haytian Empire, occasioned by the following circumstance: - The British frigate was cruising off the port of Jaquemel, St. Domingo, and observing the vessel with which she was afterwards engaged, coming from that port, fired a shot to bring her to; this was immediately returned by her oponent [sic] - the fight consequently ensued, and was continued for six hours, during which a most dreadful carnage was made on board the Haytian vessel - she had a complement of 800 men, of whom 400 were killed and wounded before she struck to the Southampton, which also lost a number of men. Sir J. L. Yeo lost a leg in this affair, and his First Lieutenant was dangerously wounded. - It appears that the crew of the vessel taken had, some time previous to this revolted, and carried her from Christophe's squadron to that of his rival Petion, and were therefore afraid of being discovered and sent back to their former Chief - this, it is said, caused them to risk an action. - The Southampton has carried her prize to Jamaica, to which station she belongs."

The Packet, from this River, sailed on Thursday; and among the Passengers we noticed-
John Carmichael, Esquire, Government-Secretary, of this Colony; and C. J. O'Hara, Esquire, late Ordnance-Store-Keeper.

The Union, Capt. Henry, from Glasgow, is also arrived - but she does not bring any intelligence of importance.
