The Packet also arrived this morning.
The Fleet above-mentioned, has considerably anticipated the Packet, in the communication of Foreign News: - the Papers by the former being to the 21st ultimo, when those of the latter do not exceed the 16th. One advantage however, the Packet possesses; for her Papers afford an unbroken detail of those great events, which have immortalized the union of British policy and Russian prowess - while, on the other hand, those of the Fleet present only as it were, the last chapter yet extant, of a book whose title is - The Fate of Nations! - That last, notwithstanding, we have preferred giving at this time, (leaving the former to a future opportunity) not only because its contents are gloriously interesting in themselves, but, because they convey the mind into the region of probabilities, more glorious still!
[Transcriber's note: European news not transcribed.]
Colonial Produce is, as we expected, considerably advanced in price. But we defer giving the particular sums, until our next.
The Barbados Papers by the Army-schooners, are to the 20th instant; but the following articles are all we found in them of importance: -
There appears to be some chance of a rencounter [sic] between a British and an American frigate upon a more equal footing than has hitherto taken place - a letter addressed by Captain Porter, of the Essex, to the American Secretary at War, having been discovered on board of one of the prizes taken on that coast, in which he mentions his particular cruising ground off the Brazils, and where he intends supplying his ship with wood and water. In consequence of this, the Belvidera, had been dispatched in quest of her, and we trust that the consequence of an interview will be such as we anticipate - a complete triumph over the enemy.
The American private armed ship Alexander, of 30 guns, and upwards of 200 men, is also cruising on the coast of Brazils.
(New Providence) Dec. 8. - Late on Monday evening, one of the Lieutenants of
His Majesty's ship Southampton arrived in this port, in one of the ship's
boats, from St. Salvador, with accounts of the capture of the United States'
brig Vixen, by the Southampton, and of both ships having been afterwards
unfortunately cast away upon the reefs of Little Island. Both crews saved.
On Friday-morning, the unpleasant intelligence was communicated to the public, of the loss of the Peacock sloop of war, which lately left this port on a cruise to windward, after an action of two hours off Mahaica, with the American sloop of war Hornet. We shall not, however, enlarge upon the subject at present, as but little has officially transpired, and as of course all the rest must be merely report.
Our old friend, the Highflyer American privateer, has lately been captured by the Poictiers and Acasta in company, and carried into Bermuda. Capt. Grant and four of his crew, had been previously killed in an action with the Teazer army-schooner.
The Active, of Greenock, which our readers will recollect, was captured by the Highflyer some time since, on her passage hither from Newfoundland - arrived at Charlestown on the 16th of December last.
We have much satisfaction in stating, that on the morning of the 6th instant, the Peruvian brig of war, Capt. Kippen, (promoted from the Maria, lately on this station) on her return from St. Thomas, fell in with, and, after a chase of 15 hours, captured the American privateer ship John, of 16 guns and 100 men.
