The kindness of our friends, has enabled us to continue the communication of Important Intelligence commenced on Saturday. We did not conceive, so much in substance, and so favourable in fact, was given in our last, that Papers, only two days later, would have made any addition; but it appears, such is the state of Europe, that every hour teems with events, almost miraculous - and that, at this moment, not a cloud is seen in the political horizon. [Transcriber's note: European news not transcribed.]

In the present number, therefore, of the Royal Gazette, as well as the last, there exists much cause of satisfaction to every Community, subject to the British Flag. To us, the Inhabitants of the West, in particular, the changes which have taken place in Europe, are of the deepest interest. Commerce is again free; and Colonial Produce no longer lingers in the storehouses of England. The Planter is now sure that his labours will be remunerated; and the Merchant can now speculate in safety.

Leaving, however, Europe and the Western World - let us cast a glance at that most dangerous of all Belligerents - namely, America! If report, however, be true, England's fears may begin to subside! That gigantic fleet, which was to annihilate the right of search, and prevent in future the unjust practice of impressment - is at last become less by a frigate. - The Essex is no more!

But on this and the subjects mentioned above, we refer our readers to the extracts we have made from London Papers.


London, March 20. [centered]

Extract of a letter from an Officer on board His Majesty's ship St. Domingo, dated Bermuda, Feb. .15, 1813. – "We have at last commenced our warlike operations against the Americans, the whole of their ports were, on the 4th inst. declared in a state of blockade, by our Commander in Chief. We are just returned from a six weeks cruise off New-York, the Delaware, and Chesapeake, with the Dragon, Statira, and Colibre sloop. We have taken and destroyed, during this cruise, 34 sail – 16 we sent into Bermuda. We have been joined by three line of battle ships the Malborough, Rear Admiral Cockburn, Ramilies, and Victorious, which make six sail of the line. We expect other reinforcements."


                        "Cadiz, February 17.
"The Americans, and Greeks from the Black Sea, arrive in great numbers; provisions promise to be down to nothing, and as the American Government have not been able to prevent their ships sailing with provisions for the Peninsula, brother Jonathan continues to carry large supplies of wheat, flour and rice. Flour is now without a price, and every store in Cadiz piled up to the top. It is now three p.m. and six Americans in sight."


                  New-York, Jan. 7, 1813.
By all that we can learn from Washington, says the United States Gazette, it appears to us sufficiently evident that some juggle is about to take place between the Administration and their underworkers in Congress, with a view to get this troublesome war off their hands. It has served the purpose for which it was made, by securing to Mr. Madison his re-election, and he now wishes to have nothing more to do with it.

From the National Intelligencer. [centered]
We observe that an idea is in circulation in some of the Gazettes, that there is a prospect of an early accommodation with Great Britain. We wish it may be founded on any recent judications, on the part of Great Britain, of a disposition to meet the liberal advances of our Government. Of such a disposition we have however no proof. Of the perseverance of the United States in their pacific disposition, we have no doubt that every additional proof will appear from time to time that circumstances may render proper. We allude more particularly to its being intended, as we learn, to introduce into the Legislature a proposition for excluding by law foreign seamen from the public and private vessels of the United States. This will provide for giving effect to any stipulated arrangement between the two governments, which may take place after the adjournment of Congress, without the delay and inconvenience incident to a special call for the purpose.

Extract of a letter, dated Norfolk, Dec. 26: - "A vessel arrived yesterday with the crews of several vessels captured by the squadron at our Cape, and put on board just at our Light, among them the ship Pekin (formerly the British ship Ann Green), coming round in ballast, with the Sidmonth, to load at Alexandria, taken because that she had been made a prize from them since the war [another account states that it was because they would not admit that her licence protected her only, from Alexandria outwards] - sent to Bermuda. It is said the Commander of the Poictiers regretted the capture afterwards, and thinks she will be released. They are close in with the Cape and speak every thing. - There are some fears of an attack here or more South, and the State Governments are making some preparations."
