The Proselyte, from Barbados, arrived last night, and the Sisters, from Glasgow, this morning; but the former has not brought any papers of a later date than those already in our possession; and we have not heard if the latter is the bearer of any intelligence of importance. The Packet left our river on Sunday.

LOCALITIES. [heading]

His Excellency the Governor of Berbice, departed from this Colony, on Wednesday last, for Europe.

The Second Subscription Ball, notwithstanding the unfavourableness of the weather yesterday morning, was very well attended in the evening; and the "tripping on the light fantastic toe" continude until a late hour this morning.

The painful duty is imposed upon us, of announcing the pre-mature death of Mr. A. Buchanan, of this colony. He had been over the bar on Wednesday evening, with P. M'Intyre, Esquire, for the purpose of joining the ship in which that gentleman was to depart for Glasgow; and, on his return, was, by some accident, precipitated over-board, and never seen afterwards.

In addition to the above melancholy announcement, we have to state, that on Saturday evening last, about eight o'clock, Mr. E. Hardie, employed in the Royal Gazette Office, went for the purpose of bathing at the Government-Stelling; and, although his clothes were soon found, no tidings have yet been received as to his own fate.

THE Meeting of the Hon. Court of Criminal and Civil Justice, which was to have taken place on Monday last, and was then postponed on account of His Excellency the Governor's indisposition, is now fixed for Monday the 27th instant, and following days.
Court-House, George-Town, this 21st of July, 1812.
Alex. Tinne,
First Clerk to the Court of Justice.
