The schooner Fame, Greenidge, from Barbados, arrived this morning.

Four, P.M. - Three Ships and Two Brigs are now at anchor off the Bar - supposed to be the London Fleet, for some time expected.

Of course, our readers will perceive, that the Packet we anticipated so much from in our last, has not yet made her appearance; on Saturday, however, we still hope to realize every expectation.

The Papers by the Fame, are to the 15th instant; the London intelligence they communicate, is to the 7th of January; and of which the following paragraphs possess the substance:

The British Government has caused it to be intimated to the Court of Directors of the East India Company, that it is intended to accede to the wishes of the public, by opening the trade of Hindostan, to seven of the principal parts of the United-Kingdom; namely, London, Bristol, Liverpool, Hull, Glasgow, Dublin and Cork. But the China trade will be still confined to the Company.

[Transcriber's note: European news not transcribed]

It hasn been intimated to the Envoys, of Powers in amity with Great Britain, and published in the Gazette, that the ports and harbours of America in the Chesapeake and Delaware are to be considered in a state of blockade.

Several line-of-battle ships are ordered by the British Admiralty, to be fitted immediately for foreign service – supposed the coast of America.

In addition to the above interesting summary, we have to announce the receipt of a letter by a gentleman of this colony, in which it is stated, from undoubted authority - that

Congress has refused the American Executive, the Supplies required for the prosecution of the War!!!

Thus then, has terminated the reign of Wildgoose the First! - a title, to which Mr. President Madison, possesses an undoubted right! Adieu, therefore, he must say, to the Conquest of Canada -
Ye Warriors! return to your homes,
The game is quite ended, I guess;
For a Congress of Peaceable Drones,
Has said to my measures - halt, dress!

We, however, feel we ought not to triumph over fallen greatness; and therefore say no more at present.

The same letter also mentions a late dreadful visitation of Earthquake, at Jamaica.


The Fleet, which left this port on the 22d of January, under convoy of the Peacock, and arrived at Grenada on the 30th, we find, by a private letter, was to depart for St. Thomas, under convoy of the Kangaroo, on the 3d instant. The names of the vessels, it will be recollected, were as follow: - the Nereus, Dian, Herald, Thomas, Ramoncita, Isabella, Fanny, Pilot, and Granger.

The Queen Charlotte Packet, Capt. Kirkness, and the ship Sisters, Gemmell, also late from this port, are arrived safe at their respective places of destination.
