LOCALITIES. [heading]

A Mail for Europe, via Barbados, will, we understand, be made up at the Post-Office, on Monday next, at 9 o'clock.

THE REGENT'S BIRTH-DAY - Pursuant to the General Order of Tuesday last, directing in what manner the military celebration of the ensuing anniversary should be conducted: the Royal Militia of George Town began to assemble at an early hour on Wednesday morning; and, soon after, were formed into line on the Grand Parade, under the more immediate command of Major Tulloh - Lieutenant-Colonel Otto being Commander-in-Chief on the occasion, in consequence of the lamented indisposition of His Excellency the Governor. At the appointed time, the firing commenced with a royal salute at the Fort; after which, a volley proceeded from the 60th Regiment, then from the Militia, and after all, the Vessels in the river paid their usual respects. - In the evening, the King's House was again the temporary public residence of Beauty, Loyalty and Conviviality - the latter of which was considerably augmented, by the ardently welcome, but unexpected presence, for a short time, of the Governor himself - who, in defiance of the Medical Remonstrance he had received, could not possibly, it seems, deprive himself, and his numerous guests, of the mutual pleasure of an interview. The company did not retire until a late hour on Thursday-morning; nor can we dismiss this subject, without giving publicity to the sentiment which was, doubtless, universally prevalent - That the Prince may experience many happy returns of the day; and the Governor, a speedy restoration to perfect health.

The Hon. J. S. Masse. - We take much blame to ourselves, for not having, anterior to the present publication, borne similar testimony, on the part of the Public, to what has already been done on that of the Government - of the very satisfactory manner in which till late Public Functionary exercised the Fiscal duties. This, however, we now do; and that also, with the same sincerity, and most perfect freedom from every improper bias, as we congratulate Mr. Van Berckel on his honourable acquittal, and consequent return to office.

In addition to the several untimely deaths, it has been our painful duty to announce lately - that of Mr. Robert Noonan of this Colony, is now recorded. In proceeding, we understand, up the river in a schooner, on Thursday night, he was so imprudent as to go to sleep in the folds of the main sail; and the consequence was, that, on the negroes proceeding to wake him soon after, he was not to be found.

Brigadier-General Murray arived [sic] on Wednesday evening in the Berbice mail-boat, for the purpose of presiding at the Court-Martial on Colonel Codd of the 60th, in garrison here, which assembled on the following day, and has sat daily by adjournment ever since.

Departed this life, since our last, Alexander Cassie, Esqr. of this Colony.

ENGLAND. [heading]

London, June 23. - A Supplement to The Gazette, published this days, contains the following official document, declaring that the Orders in Council are revoked, so far as regards America:
"At the Court at Carlton-House, the 23d of June, 1812, present, His Royal Highness the Prince Regent in Council.
"Whereas His Royal Highness the Prince Regent was pleased to declare, in the name and on behalf of His Majesty, on the 21st day of April 1812, "That if at any time
"hereafter the Berlin and Milan Decrees shall, by some au-
"thentic act of the French Government, publicly promulgated,
"be absolutely and unconditionally repeaaled, then and from
"thenceforth the Order in Council of the 7th of January
"1807, and the Order in Council of the 26th ofApril 1809,
"shall, without any further Order, be, and the same are
"hereby declared from thenceforth to be, wholly and abso-
"lutely revoked."
"And whereas the Chargˇ Affaires of the United States, of America, resident at the Court, did, on the 20th day of May last, transmit to Lord Viscount Castlereagh, one of his Majesty's Principal Secretaries of State, a copy of a certain instrument then for the first time communicated to this Court, purporting to be a Decree passed by the Government of France, on the 28th day of April 1811, by which the Decrees of Berlin and Milan are declared to be difinitively [sic] no longer in force, in regard to American vessels.
"And whereas His Royal Highness the Prince Regent, although he cannot consider the tenor of the said instrument as satisfying the conditions set forth in the said Order of the 31st of April last, upon which the said Orders were to cease and determitive; is nevertheless disposed, on his part, to take such measures as may tend to re-establish the intercourse between Neutral and Belligerent nations, upon its accustomed principles - His Royal Highness the Prince Regent, in the name and on the behalf of His Majesty, is therefore pleased, by and with the advice of His Majesty's Privy Council, to order and declare, and it is hereby ordered and declared, that the Order in Council bearing date the 26th day of April, 1809, be revoked, so far as may regard American vessels, and their cargoes being American property, from the 1st day of August next.
"But whereas, by certain Acts of the Government of the United States of America, all British armed vessels are excluded from the harbours and waters of the United States, the armed vessels of France, being permitted to enter therein; and he commercial intercourse between Great Britain and the said United Statse is interdicted, the commercial intercourse between France and the said United States having been restored; His Royal Highness the Prince Regent is pleased hereby, further to declare, in the name and on the behalf of His Majesty, that if the Government of the said United States shall not, as soon as may be, after this Order shall have been duly notified by His Majesty's Minister in America to the said Government, revoke, or cause to be revoked, the said Acts, this present Order shall, in that case, after due notice signified by His Majesty's minister in America to the said Government, be thenceforth null and of no effect.
"It is further ordered and declared, that all American vessels, and their cargoes being American property, that shall have been captured subsequently to the 20th day of May last, for a breach of the aforesaid Orders in Council alon, and which shall not have been actually condemned before the date of this Order; and that all ships and cargoes as aforesaid, that shall henceforth be captured under the said Orders, prior to the 1st day of August next, shall not be proceeded against to condemnation till further orders, but shall, in the event of this Order not becoming null and of no effect, in the case aforesaid, be forthwith liberated and restored, subject to such reasonable expences on the part of the captors, as shall have been justly incurred.
"Provided that nothing in this Order contained, respecting the revocation of the Orders herein mentioned, shall be taken to revive wholly or in part the Orders in Council of the 14th of November 1807, or any other Order not herein-mentioned, or to deprive Parties of any legal remedy to which they may be entitled under the Order in Council of the 21st of April 1812.
"His Royal Highness the Prince Regent is hereby pleased further to declare, in the name and on the behalf of His Majesty, that nothing in this present Order contained, respecting the revocation of the Orders herein mentioned, shall be taken to revive wholly or in part the Orders in Council of the 14th of November 1807, or any other Order not herein-mentioned, or to deprive Parties of any legal remedy to which they may be entitled under the Order in Council of the 21st of April 1812.
"His Royal Highness the Prince Regent is hereby pleased further to declare, in the name and on the behalf of His Majesty, that nothing in this present Order contained, shall be understood to precinde [sic] His Royal Highness the Prince Regent, if circumstances shall so require, from restoring, after reasonable notice, the Orders of the 7th of January, 1807, and 26th of April, 1809, or any part thereof to their full effect; or from taking such other measures of retaliation against the enemy, as may appear to His Royal Highness to be just and necessary.
"And the Right Honourable the Lords Commissioners of His Majesty's Treasury, His Majesty's Principal Secretaries of State, the Lords Commissioners of the Admiralty, and the Judge of the High Court of Admiralty, and the Judges of the Courts of Vice Admiralty, are to take the necessary measures herein as to them may respectively appertain.
"James Buller."
