The Second Edition of our Paper on Saturday, has doubtless led the reader to anticipate much from the present number – and we trust he will not feel disappointed. He will not only find a detail of what we announced of the Russians; but also copies of the letters, on which we founded our assertion respecting the sale of Cotton. On both which facts we congratulate the Public.

OUT AT LAST! [centered]

The more extracts we see from these American Papers, the more we rejoice at having prevented their intended concealment! – But for us, (speaking as we did of their being with-held) oh, ye unhappy Journals! rich as ye have proved to be in specimens of legislative wisdom! strange as it may appear, ye would have been laid upon the shelf! Yes – Lost to the public, would have been that bright Report; that just Retaliative Proposal to the Senate; that most appalling military information from Washington, and that fine illustration of the audacity of a British admiral! – Triumph, threfore [sic – therefore], ye sweet papers! and we pledge ourselves to assist in the publicity of your sublime contents!

A New Way of Raising Supplies. [centered]

Captain Barney and another owner of privateers having petitioned, that the English property taken by privateers in homeward-bound American vessels, might be delivered to the captors - it appeared that the Secretary of the Treasury had claimed the property as being forfeited to the United States, having been imported contrary to the Non-Importation Law.


BRIDGE-TOWN. [centered]
March 27. - The first Mail for February was received here on Thursday, by his Majesty's brig Pelican, 25 days from Falmouth. The London Papers enclosed in the Mail were only to the 16th of the month, but we have been favoured with two of a later date, the 20th and 25th.

His Majesty's ship Cleopatra and Frolic brig, twelve days from Bermuda with a convoy of 26 sail, came in on Thursday morning. We thus learn, that Commodore Hotham in La Hague, with the Valiant, also a 74, had reinforced Sir John B. Warren's squadron, which consisted of at least fifteen of that class, besides a considerable number of frigates and smaller vessels. They have taken several privateers, and are daily capturing and destroying American merchantmen, of which not less than two hundred of different descriptions have been ascertained from the 16th September, 1812, to the 26th February last; and it is supposed that in the harbour of Bermuda there are now at least 150 sail. Provisions of every species, and other articles, are in the greatest abundance at that Island, and of course the market is cheap. Information is also thus obtained, that the Congress of the United States had recently passed an Act. by which, after the termination of the existing War, the employment of foreign seamen in American ships is to be prohibited.

March 30 - It is reported by the way of Antigua, that the Dragon, 74, and a frigate, have lately been driven ashore to Lynn-Haven Bay.

The American ship that was brought in on Saturday last, by the Tribune frigate, is the Thomas Penrose, of Philadelphia, and had been 114 days from Canton, with a very valuable cargo consisting of silks, china ware, tea, nankeens, vermillion, camphor, &c. &c. - She is estimated to be worth upwards of £ 30,000.


[Transcriber's note: most European news not transcribed.]

The Underwriters of Liverpool, taking into consideration the brave defence of the running ship May, against an American privateer, on her passage from that Port to St. Lucia, have voted to Captain Affleck, who then commanded her, a Silver Cup, valued at Forty Guineas, on which is the following inscription:-

"PRESENTED [centered]
To [centered]
Commander of the Ship May, [centered]
As a mark of their sense of his gallantry [centered]
in defending his ship against the [centered]
American privateer Shadow, [centered]
In the West Indies, [centered]
On the 3d of August, 1812." [centered]

And they have also allowed Captain Affleck, as a further token of their estimation, free access to their Public Rooms.

COTTON TRADE. [centered]

"Manchester, Jan. 27. – Our market advances in price daily, and we think far from being at its height yet – More piece goods and yarns were sold yesterday than on any one day within remembrance of any person in the trade. Calicoes advanced about 8d. per piece, in addition to the former rise on the article. Many large purchases were made – we know of one House which purchased 25,000 pieces."

Another letter, same date. – "The demand continues very brisk for every kind of feeled mule twist; water and cop yarns are also greatly wanted. There has been a further rise since we last wrote, and there is every prospect of a continued advance for some time to come. The manufacturers of calicoes and cambrics had one of the briskest days known for five years in our market yesterday! and these kinds advanced during the day near 10 per cent.; indeed, the warehouses both here and at Blackburn were cleared, and one House bought near 80,000 pieces. The printers are all purchasing largely."

LOCALITIES. [centered]

The Second Session of the Court of Justice for the present year, commences on the 21st instant. A Court of Rolls on the preceeding [sic] day.

The Manchester Packet, which sailed from this port in January last, is safe arrived at her place of destination.

The Harmony, Woodall; Henry Cerf, Roxborough; Union, Roberts; Elizabeth, Langrich; and the John, Roberts - from London - may be daily expected.

It is stated that the ships Queen, and Sir Sidney Smith, originally intended for this port, but captured in December last, by the American privateer General Armstrong - have been wrecked off the island of Nantucket.
