WHEREAS I am informed, that some person or persons have taken the liberty of endeavouring to hurt my character, I have only to observe, their aspersions do not give me the least cause of uneasiness; and that an upright, honest, man, who is neither ashamed nor afraid to look in the face of any one, can only treat them with silent contempt, and consider them nothing more than infamous lying scoundrels.

The Tiger, Capt. Lewe, from Barbados, arrived on Thursday last; and we understand that the Hope, Capt. Millar, late from this River, has reached Liverpool in safety.

Barbados Papers, by the above-mentioned arrival, are to the 23d ultimo; and, by a reference to our Foreign Department, it will be seen, that we have made as extensive a compilation from their contents as our limits would permit.

On Thursday last, by appointment, an interview took place at the King's house, between His Excellency the Governor, and the Carib Chieftain, who had previously arrived from the interior, attended by a numerous train. His Excellency, for the purpose of conferring all possible eclat on the occasion had ordered the grenadier-company of the 60th and its excellent band, to be on the parade, at nine o'clock - where had been already placed several pieces of ordnance, and a sufficient number of artillery-men. The concourse of people to witness the ceremony was very great. At about twelve o'clock, His Excellency's Indian visitors arrived in procession; and the Chief, with his Interpreter, was immediately conducted to the Presence Chamber; but the inferior Chiefs remained in the hall, and their followers in the avenue. The audience lasted till about three o'clock, when the Chief was informed that a repast waited his presence below; - after which a discharge of cannon announced his departure for that day. The arrival of this person was, we understand, in consequence of certain promises made to him by Governor Bentinck, in the year 1810.

A Recess-Session of the Court of Justice of the United Colonies, we understand, will commence on the 9th instant.
