We have no arrivals to announce in the present Gazette; but the Diana, Capt. M'George, and the Union, Capt. Henry, from Glasgow; the Zephyr, Capt. Davies, for London, and the Dominica Packet, Capt. Hea, for Liverpool - have cleared since our last.

We have to discharge the painful duty of announcing the death of the Honourable Alexander Macrae, of Plantation New Hope, in this Colony. It took place on Tuesday Evening last, at half past six o'clock. - The virtue of this excellent person well known; to describe them faithfully would thy panegyric - in fact.
      "His life was gentle, and the elements
      "So mix'd in him, that Nature might stand up
      "And say to all the world - This was a MAN!"

Also, on Thursday last, departed this life, Dr. Bradford, of Plantation Free-and-Easy.

Berbice Gazettes to the 6th instant, are come to hand; but their contents are not important. We however [illegible letter]nd, that the usual public spirit, in the inhabitants of that Colony, is exerting itself for the relief of the sufferers in the island of St. Vincent:- that His Excellency Governor Gordon has been pleased to appoint John Hubbard, Esq. of Essequebo, and T. C. Emery, Esq. of Berbice, his Aides-de-Camp, with the rank of Lieutenant-Colonel; and that addresses of gratitude are preparing for presentation to His Excellency General Carmichael, "for the prompt and ready manner in which he has attended to the applications, suggestions, and wishes of the colonists."


      Without or wealth or fame to recommend,
Say, will Carmichael kindly condescend
To accept the tribute of an humble bard,
And deign his lowly efforts to regard? -
      While at his levee, numbers crow'd in throngs,
And sue him to redress oppressive wrongs;
Say, will he listen to those humble lays
Which strive for merit, by announcing praise? -
      Shall one, unblest with scientific rules,
Or boasted arts from academic schools;
Unknown to genious, and unknown to fame,
From him, well vers'd in all, attention claim?
In him we hope - in him, exulting find
The sweetest softness, with the brave combin'd;
In him, Carmichael, we have all to boast -
Long may he rule us, and protect our coast!
      While he presides, oppression shall not dare
To raise her haughty head, or taint the air;
Stern-visag'd threats o'eraw'd, no more affright
The trembling sufferer, or invade his right.
Beneath his banners, virtue shall again
Revive her drooping honours, on our plain;
Impartial justice re-assume her sway,
And hold her edicts in the glare of day! -
      But ah! how short, perhaps, the bliss may be -
In mercy, Heav'n - avert the stern decree;
The sad idea damps the muse's fire,
And from her trembling hand, she drops the lyre!
      Oh no - repeating echoes answer - no -
From us he must not, no - he cannot go -
Let every voice in fervent accents pray,
And court his Sov'reign to prolong his stay;
So shall our better genius then prevail,
And vicious acts no more our rights assail;
But virtue, truth, and wisdom, ever guide,
And give to Britons, all a Briton's pride! -
