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

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
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.
Pursuant to the Court of Policy's Proclamation, of the 9th ultimo,

same. Among other regulations, Captain Cart's Company of the Militia, was

Yesterday, the long-pending case of the Calcutta-Estate, occupied
