ARRIVALS. - The brig Koutousoff, Johnstone, on Thursday; yesterday, the schooner Brothers, Adamson; and this morning, L'Espiagle sloop of war - from Barbados. Also the schooner Meadow, from Surinam.

Since our last, intelligence of considerable importance, has been communicated from North-America. Madison is re-elected President; and General Armstrong is to be Secretary at War. - French interest has therefore prevailed; and the United States are in fact, annexed to France! - Thus then, it will be for History to record, that, at a time, when such countries as Russia and Spain, were struggling against a Power, aiming at their entire subjugation – America (the free-born America!) voluntarily became that Power's vassal!

For this knowledge, however, of who would be elected, doubtless as the Government of England waited, before it acted worthy of its power; - we may, therefore, now expect early intelligence, of the proper chastisement of an enemy, whom concession could not satisfy, or any thing but approaching annihilation, bring to reason.

                        "Barbados, March. 6.
"American Papers have been received to the19th of January:
"Mr. Madison has been re-elected as President of the United States; and General Armstrong is appointed to be Secretary of War for that Government."
"By an express from St. Andrew's, which reached St. John's, New Brunswick, on the 10th Jan. last, the following official notification was made to Major Maule, commanding at that place, by Colonel Ulmer, commanding the United States' troops on Moose Island, &c. &c. by a flag of truce: -
"I hereby notify to you, that all persons coming to this frontier from His Britannic Majesty's Providences or Shipping, except by permission from the Commanding Officer of this frontier, will be treated as Spies, and will be made prisoners of war."

The Barbados Papers by the late arrivals, afford nothing new from Europe. A London Journal, however, by the late Packet, has furnish [sic] us with an article of some interest. [Transcriber's note: European news not transcribed]

On L'Espiagle leaving Barbados, we are told, two Men of war were going out, in consequence of the appearance of a vessel under jury-mast, to windward of the island - supposed to be an enemy.

LOCALITIES. [centered]

The reader will find that the Public Solemnity, which the inclemency of the weather prevented on Sunday, is to take place to-morrow. It will be recollected, that it is for the purpose of commemorating the late heroic efforts of the Peacock sloop of war, against an American of superior force; and of doing religious honour to the memory of Captain Peake - a commander, who had often fought the enemies of England; but, in the present instance, fell in a battle which was all our own! - Ours, because the foe might have become the incendiary of our plantations; the case of a suspended commercial intercourse; and of this now valuable colonial jewel being rendered, a degrading inhabitant of the British crown! - His Majesty's Troops and the Militia are to assemble on the Grand Parade in Cumingsburg, and thence march in companies to St. George's Church.

It has been since ascertained, that if any thing could have equalled the heroic manner in which Capt. Peake went into the late engagement; it was that in which the same was continued by Lieutenant Wright. - Before he struck, the Peacock's mainmast had gone by the board, half of her crew were killed and wounded, her rigging was all cut away, and she had eight feet water in her hold.

It may not be useless to remind those, who intend paying their taxes in Bills of Exchange, that the Hon. Court of Policy has altered the Rate of thirteen, to twelve guilders ten the pound sterling.

A Court of Rolls on Monday next.

The brig Koutousoff before announced, was lately the American privateer Decatur, taken by the Surprise frigate. She is a very fine vessel, sails remarkably fast, and mounts ten carriage guns.

It will be heard in this colony with pleasure, that the British Regent has been pleased to bestow, on the gallant Sir Charles Shipley, the Government of Grenada.

Cleared from the Custom-House, on the 10th instant - the schooner Catharine, White, for Barbados.

Departed this Life - on Tuesday last, Mr. Rowland Hunter, on Plantation Vlissingen.
