NOTICE. [centered]
WHEREAS several Complaints have recently been made, in consequence of the Lives of Persons being endangered by people of different descriptions Galloping their Horses through the Streets, and on the Public Roads in the Vicinity of George-Town, - contrary to Law. This Caution is given, as the full Penalty will hereafter be put in force, against such as appear to have no regard for the Lives or Limbs of their Fellow Creatures.
And whereas, two very serious accidents occured, by which the Child of an Officer, and his servant; as also in another instance, a Soldier of His Majesty's Second Battalion, 60th Regiment, had nearly lost their Lives - and the Persons who rode against them, had not even the common feelings of humanity, to express contrition or regret for the injury. A reward of Ten Joes will be given for the discovery of such person or persons, who were concerned in those Lawless Acts.

By Command, JOHN EYRE,

ARRIVALS - The ship Hero, and the schooner Phnix, from Barbados.

The present number, notwithstanding the above-mentioned arrivals, is unavoidably barren of news of importance. Previous to Saturday, however, we hop the Packet will arrive - in which case, our next will make sufficient amends.


Bridge-Town, March 16. [centered]

The Tickler Mail-Boat (which arrived yesterday from St. Vincent), on her passage hence for Trinidad, and within the Bocas, was boarded by a large Spanish schooner, armed, and having a complement of 160 men, which stated, that they were cruising for a sloop that was expected from St. Bartholomew, with a reinforcement of Frenchmen, to assist those renagadoes who had lately landed at Guiara, on the Spanish Main. They behaved respectfully on board the mail-boat, but at the same time were particularly desirous of ascertaining whether any of the passengers were French subjects, or natives of any of their lately conquered Colonies in this quarter; they evinced much exasperation against that Government, and were evidently overjoyed on being informed of the reverses that had befallen Bonaparte and his armies in Russia. We have been given to understand, that in consequence of the invaders of Guira having departed from a small island within the command of Trinidad, a very strong remonstrance has been made to the Governor of that Colony, by the Commandant of Cumana, who, it is added, has also written to his Government on the subject; and it is therefore to be apprehended, that this affair will occasion much jealousy in the minds of Spaniards, as to our ultimate views in being leagued with them against France.

The Squadrons blockading the ports of America have been very successful in preventing the commercial pursuits of that country as well as enriching our tars by captures from the enemy: - one division, under the personal direction of Sir John Borlase Warren, had recently taken twenty sail, and that commanded by Commodore Beresford had been no less fortunate, having captured about the same number, one of which is estimated to be worth 70,000, sterling. The United States' brig Argus lately had a narrow escape, having been chased for a considerable time by some of our men of war, but, by throwing her guns overboard, she defeated their exertions, and, having arrived in port, is now refitting. She had been on a three months' cruise, part of which on the coast of Brazil, whence she ran down from St. Roque, to Surinam, and then passed to windward of these Islands and the Bermudas, during which time she had taken five British Vessels.
