The arrivals since our last, are the Good-Intent, the Ann Robertson, and the Burchall, from Barbados; and the Packet from Surinam. The latter will depart on Sunday next.

We have received, by way of Barbados, London Papers to the 4th of June; and, by a reference to our Foreign Department, it will be seen, that their contents are highly important - particularly in allusion to America: of the hostile intentions of which country, towards England, no doubt can longer exist.

The Barbados Papers are to the 7th instant.

Additional Shipping Intelligence. - Arrived in the month of May, from this River, at London - the William Rathbone, Hall; the Louisa, Gray; and the Harmony, Woodall. At Gravesend - the Mercury, Powell; the Thomas, Foster; the Kingsmill, M'Lune; the John, Campbell; the Caledonia, Tuitt; and the Bridget, Kennan. At Bristol - the Sophia, Langford. In the Clyde - the Sisters, Gemmell. At Dublin - the Thornton, M'Dougall. And at Liverpool - the Ceres, Kneale.


London, June 4. - A ship is arrived at Liverpool after a short passage from the coast of America, with the important intelligence that the Government of the United States have come to the resolution of seizing on all British property in America, and that all British subjects in America are likewise to be detained. More severe measures, we learn, have been accompanied by the issuing of letters of marque and reprisals against British property; and it appears, a law is passed authorising the United States' Ships of War to bring in for trial Captains of any Foreign Power that may have unlawfuly [sic] taken, detained, or impressed any American seamen, and that orders had been given to the Commanders of the American cruisers to scour the coast for that purpose.

We have much pleasure in announcing the destruction of the two French frigates and a brig, lately said to have been so successful in the West Indies. This was most judiciously effected by His Majesty's ship Northumberland, 74, as they were nearly at the entrance of L'Orient, from which it appears that Captain Hotham cut them off by a most masterly manoeuvre.

[sailing ship icon] The Ship Favourite, William Kind, Master, Will sail from hence with the October Convoy.
For Freight or Passage, apply to the Master, or to
Johnson, Dyett, M'Garel, & Co.
