TUESDAY, JANUARY 26, 1813.
NOTICE – Any person having demands against the Estate of the
late DIANA WATERTON, free coloured woman, will please to render the same in the

THE Subscriber has received per Thomas, Captain Langley, from
London, the following Goods on Consignment, which he will dispose of cheap for
Cash, by the package or otherwise: -
IMPORTED from London, by the Thomas, Capt. Langley, and for sale
at the Store of the Subscribers:
THE Undersigned having entered into an engagement for the
conducting of Business of Law, take the liberty of acquainting their friends
and the public of the same; informing them their office is held on Lot No. 25,
H. O. SEWARD has just received, in addition to his former

immediate payment in Cash or Produce): -
is to inform the Public, that the following Persons intend quitting this
[Transcriber's note: no new or modified vendues in this issue.]
In the evening of Saturday, arrived the Kangaroo, from Barbados; for the purpose of convoying the Vessels hence - which had, however, previously sailed with the Peacock.
On Sunday came in a Sloop from Trinidad.
And yesterday and this morning, the Cork Fleet, consisting of the Castle Lachlan, Ceres, Elizabeth, Liverpool, and William. The Schooner Joseph, Strickland, from Barbados, also arrived on Monday.
Previous to the Joseph's departure, it appears the Lady Pelham Packet had arrived in 23 days, with the Mail for that Island; and that, in consequence of there being no other Packet at home, the Mail for these Colonies was also forwarded by the same conveyance. The Joseph, therefore, brought the Papers, which are to the 23d ultimo, but the Letters are to be sent by a Sloop of War.
From the receipt, therefore, of London Papers of so recent a date, we are, this day, enabled to present our readers, a Paper surpassing all its predecessors, in the importance of its foreign content. For, in the first place, we have copied official details of the glorious progress of the Russian arms, to the 25th of November, and of the disasters, the retreat, the almost total annihilation of those of France, to the 3d of December: - in the second, we announce, (though not officially, we confess) the existence of revolutionary symptoms in the body politic of France; and the consequent evacuation of the Peninsula, by the brigands of Bonaparte: - and lastly, we announce the resurrection of the dead, the discovery of the lost sheep, and the return of the deserter - for Napoleon is in Paris!
But, to crown all, we announce - that the favourable events
Abroad, have operated as a spur to every kind of speculation at Home - and
particularly, in respect to Colonial Produce.
Price of Colonial Produce at Liverpool, on the 14th of December;
The First Session of the Hon. Court of Policy, for 1813, commenced yesterday. The Address of His Excellency the Governor, will be repeated in our Gazette on Saturday.
The Caledonia, we understand, did not sail with the vessels, which composed the fleet mentioned in our Gazette of Tuesday last. Fourteen, therefore, and some of no trifling tonnage, but of very recent arrival, is the number from this port! Oh, British Incredulity! how will this statement be received by thee? - In fact, unless there exists a determination to continue blind to the present value, and future capabilities of this part of the continent of America, the circumstance of fourteen sail departing at one time, must have the desired effect.
The Joseph, we understand, was chased for upwards of twelve hours, on her passage hither, by a Brig.
It was the Iris, from Berbice, which joined convoy here last week - the Speculator is a-ground to leeward of this colony.
The Cork Fleet before-mentioned, came under [mutilated –
convoy of] the [mutilated –Amethyst?].
