ARRIVALS. - The schooner Joseph, Strickland, from Barbados, on Sunday; the schooner Eliza, Adams, from New Brunswick, N.A. on Monday; and this morning, the schooner Shark, Hicks, from Surinam.

The Papers by the Joseph, are to the 2d instant; and, in consequence of the arrival at Barbados, the preceeding [sic] day, of the Princess Charlotte Packet, Capt. White, they have communicated European intelligence to the 25th of January. [Transcriber's note: European news not transcribed]

The only article of local interest, in the Island Papers before us, is the following account of another gallant repulse of an American privateer:

                        Barbados, March 2.
The second Mail for January was received yesterday by the Princess Charlotte, Packet, White, 30 days from Falmouth, and, as on many late occasions, her Commander had an opportunity of signalizing himself in the defence of an important charge, against the aggression of a superior foe. -

On the 13th ult. in Lat. 28 20. N. long. 20 11. W. they descried a sail in chase, and accordingly Capt. White prepared for action; at 4 p.m. they received a shot, which was instantly returned; the enemy then continued a brisk fire, the Packet doing the same; and at 7, being within musket-shot, the former fired her broad sides alternately. This did some damage to the Princess Charlotte's sails, &c. at 9, the enemy sheered off, and at 10, again renewing the action, she was discovered (being a clear moon-light night) to be a corvette-built ship of considerably superior force; notwithstanding which, her raking fire was answered, with unshaken resolution. At 9 a.m. of the 14th, the enemy kept at a distance; but at day light she made sail so as not to lose sight of the Packet; and on the 15th, having placed two additional guns on a platform astern, and made some other alterations in the arrangement of her guns, she began to close, when, on the following morning, having shot a-head, she fired her stern guns, loaded with round and laugrage (without shewing any colours), and gave two broadsides, after which, the enemy hoisted an American ensign and pendant. Having hoisted the British Union, the Princess Charlotte courageously fired a broadside at this dastardly Yankee, accompanied by three cheers, and now the conflict became more serious, for the few guns on board the Packet being crammed to the muzzle with double headed round and grape, the effect was manifestly injurious to her opponent, who, availing herself of swiftness, made sail, and was out of sight before night came on. The privateer mounted either 18 or 20 guns, and from 120 to 140 men; the Packet carries six 6's, and two 9's and, including the Captain, has a complement of 28 men and boys - none of whom, we are happy to state, suffered severely in this gallant affair. - Captain White, whose conduct on this occasion sufficiently speaks for itself, acknowledges in the warmest manner, the assistance he received from a Mr. [illegible]ter, passenger; as well as the bravery and good discipline of the ship's crew.

The American vessel, mentioned among the arrivals, has not brought any news.

LOCALITIES. [centered]

The late suspension of F. P. Van Berckel, Esqr. being to continue until the Prince Regent's pleasure is known - W. Robertson, Esq. the Second Fiscal, is to exercise the functions of the First; and C. Bean, Esqr. those of the Second.

The subscription, for the humane and politic purposes mentioned in our last, we understand, is already become highly respectable.

The inclemency of the weather, on Sunday, prevented the operation of the General Orders of Saturday.

The wreck of the Peacock, we find, is in seven fathom water, off Little Courabanna.

No information has yet been received of the sloop of war L'Espeaigle [sic], which was with such becoming promptitude, dispatched in search of the Hornet.

The Shark, we understand, was halied [sic] off Braam's Point, by the Crane sloop of war, and informed that she had exchanged broadsides with a long black schooner, of 15 guns, and full of men, on Friday last. The enemy escaped from superior sailing.

The Eliza, before-mentioned, was boarded off this coast, by a vessel of war, supposed to be the Coquette.

We have the satisfaction of announcing the safe arrival of the following vessels, at their respective places of destination - the Caledonia, Harmony, Pilgrim, Proselyte, Favourite, Demerary, Belleisle, Nereid, and Sir Edward Pellew - late from this Port.

The Henry, Corf [sic – for Cerf], from London, may be daily expected.

The Packet, with the schooner Fame, Greenidge, and the Berbice Mail-Boat, in company - departed this river yesterday evening.

For London. [centered]
