Arrived this Morning - the sloop Blackbird, Hall, from Barbados. - Papers to the 1st instant.

Via Barbados, and the above arrival, American Advices have been received to a late date.

The small, but gallant British Army in Upper Canada, are proceding [sic] in a career, proportionally brilliant to its means. Not only, if a subsequent extract be true, has Harrison (that celebrated American General who was to perform those wonderful feats his predecessors failed at) been himself made prisoner, and the troops under his command; but a fort on the lines has been destroyed, and a number of armed vessels on the lakes.

This welcome intelligence, however, does not at present come in an official form - no more than that which will be found below, respecting the arrival at Washington, of a Russian Ambassador. But, notwithstanding they are without that definitive mark of fact; they are, we think, too probable to be doubted. The former, for a variety of reasons; - the later, from the well-known circumstance of Joel Barlows's late Mission to the North of Europe.

The only European Intelligence, communicated by the Papers before us, is contained in the following:
[Transcriber's note: European news not transcribed]

We announced in our Gazette of the 18th of April, that both Houses of the British Parliament had passed, an Unanimous Vote in favour of the War with America. But, till the present moment, we never had an opportunity of giving the Debates on that occasion, the attention they deserved. In the ensuing columns will therefore be found, as complete a sketch as our limits permitted; and it will also appear, so great a height had unanimity attained, that no opposition was offered even from the American Whitbread, or the African Wilberforce.

HOUSE OF LORDS, [centered]
Feb. 18. [centered]
Earl Bathurst observed, that his object in addressing their Lordships was, to call upon the House to declare, whether the Government of this country had acted properly in rejecting the proposition made on the part of America, to suspend the exercise of our undoubted right to search for our own seamen during the discussion of the question, whether any substitute for the present mode of exercising it could be found, and that, too, without stating the regulation in the first instance. - His Lordship said, that the right which the Americans called upon us to abandon was our right of impressment - a right which we had always exercised, without dispute, in regard to other countries - a right which we permitted other countries to exercise in regard to us - a right which we had uniformly acted upon, and one which we could not abandon without sapping the foundation of our maritime greatness - essential to the interests of Europe, and even to those of America herself. But Mr. Monroe had said, that a different regulation might be adopted to effectuate the same object. For these ten years, the American Government had been finding fault with its exercise, and yet they had never attempted to state any such regulation. Why did they not bring forward their regulation, that it might be seen whether it was really calculated to answer the purpose? We did not claim the exercise of the right as far as respected national ships. Why did they not try the efficacy of their regulation, in regard to these ships? But they had adopted no such regulation; on the contrary, in that country where the practice of taking the seamen of this country into their ships had most prevailed, all representation on the subject had been treated with the most marked and uniform neglect. At the very moment when they tendered some regulation on this subject, they held out unexampled encouragements to desertion. They actually claimed the right of cancelling the allegiance due to this country from its own subjects; and that too in time of war, when such a pretension, if acted upon to a great extent, must be peculiarly pernicious. The condition for becoming a citizen of the United States was a residence of five years, and a residence merely, without any property or interest in that country. Their Lordships must at once perceive how easily testimonials of such a residence might be fabricated, especially where there was no interest to prove the allegation false. For the small sum of one dollar, any person upon the attestation of two witnesses might get a letter of citizenship, which was to be prima facie evidence that he was a citizen. - When some regulation was proposed, Mr. Monroe distinctly stated that it was not to affect people of that description. He did not mean to say, that under no circumstances ought we ever to accede to any regulation different from our present mode of exercising our right of searching for and taking our own seamen; but certainly we ought never to abandon the right itself, nor ought we to give up our present mode of exercising it, till we saw how any other regulation that might be proposed would operate in securing to us the same result. The Americans were industriously informed by their Government, that Great Britain was so much pressed at present, that if they only stood firm, this country must yield to their unreasonable demands. He hoped, however, that their Lordships would shew, by their vote on this night, that this country was not so much pressed by the difficulties of the times - not so weak or divided in policy as to shrink from going to the foot of the Throne, to express their approbation of determined resistance, when the most essential right, and interests of their country were at stake. In this hope, he proposed that an Address to this effect should be presented to the Regent -
"That the House had taken into its serious consideration the papers laid before them in regard to the war with America; and while they deeply regretted the necessity of commencing hostilities, they yet entirely approved of the resistance made to pretensions which could not have been acceded to without abandoning the most essential rights of the country; and that His Royal Highness the Prince Regent might rely upon their zealous support of such measures as might be calculated to carry on the war with vigour."
The Address being read by the Chancellor,
The Marquis of Landsdowne, had certainly expected, that when the Orders were repealed, America would have returned to such a pacific disposition as would have paved the way for the adjustment of other differences. - Adverting to the impressment of our own seamen, he stated that he could not perceive that there was any difference in regard to the principle: the dispute was about certain abuses which were alleged to exist in the practice. The principle might be admitted, that we had a right to the allegiance of our own subjects; but it would be justly added, that we ought not to extend that in practice so far as to press American seamen into our service; and there could be no doubt but we ought to endeavour, as much as possible, to prevent any such abuses. In a question, then, involving so much national prejudice, it was essential that the parties should meet with a disposition mutually to conciliate. He could no [sic] yet abandon the hope that means might still be found for the restoration of peace, and placing that peace upon a permanent footing; and he was glad to find some manifestation of such a disposition to enter into discussion for that purpose, both in the proposition of Mr. Monroe to Sir John B. Warren, and in the declaration of the Prince Regent; though he admitted that the proposition of Mr. Monroe was not such as could with propriety have been accepted. If the Orders in Council had been sooner recalled, he was convinced that this war would never have taken place; for it appeared from these papers, that it would have been impossible for the Government to have got the people to second its views. When we talked of the hostile disposition of the American Government, we ought to consider what was the nature of that Government. If there was any country in the world where public opinion had an immediate operation on the Government, it was America. If then, twenty years ago, the disposition of America was known to be highly favourable to this country, we ought to review our own conduct and policy, that we might ascertain whether there was any thing in that conduct to give just occasion for the hostile disposition which was now said to exist. In all our transactions with foreign countries, and especially with America, we ought to study the temper, disposition, and even prejudices, not only of the Government, but of the people; not, however, with a view to surrender our own right, but to conciliate, as far as was consistent with the interests and honour of our own country, the good opinions both of the rulers and the subjects of other countries. But while he recommended a mild, temperate, and conciliating conduct, in time of peace, he was far from recommending a slow and dilatory mode of carrying on war. When war had once commenced, there was no resource, but a vigorous and determined prosecution of it, in order to bring it to a speedy and favourable conclusion. The want of this proper vigour in the prosecution of the war was palpable, and deeply to be lamented; for if there was any thing more calculated to generate contempt and confidence in an enemy, it was the union of lofty pretensions with insufficient means and dilatory execution. He could not refuse his assent to the present Address: but at the same time, he hoped the Government would evince every disposition, without sacrificing the honour of the country, to come to some amicable arrangement in regard to the practice of impressing our seamen from American ships, without abandoning the principle.
Lord Melville was perfectly ready at any time to enter minutely into the discussion of the subject, and to show that there had been no negligence or misconduct in the conduct of the naval war on the part of any branch of the Government.
Marquis Wellesley fully agreed in the general tenor of the Address. In its justice - in the importance of its object - in the importance of exerting all our powers for the end of bringing the enemy to a due sense of their situation with respect to war with England - in the absolute necessity, upon all sound and rational views, of being unanimous in the prosecution of the present struggle, and pledging the Legislature to the Government; but he was anxious, that while he approved of the general object of the Address, it should be understood that he differed widely from it, as to the conduct of the war.
Lord Liverpool said, that the motives set forth by America were not her motives. Who could now believe, that the right of impressment was the actual cause. That right was, no doubt, an old and solemn right of England; but it was not a nature that refused to admit of modifications. Amicable discussions might have reduced the whole controversy to nothing: but was it to be believed, that America wanted this! The war was not one of interest, but of passion and inflamed feelings. As to the imputation of negligence to our Navy for the escape of the enemy's squadrons so far from wondering that such circumstances sometimes occurred, he was only surprised that they occurred so seldom. But if America was led on by passion, it was fit that there should be no passion here; and that a war begun in justice should receive the support - the rational and unanimous support - of the Legislature.
Lord Holland expressed his belief, that from the extreme nicety of the point on which the negociation broke off, it might not be altogether hopeless of renewal. On the question of naturalization, there could be no doubt that the King had a right to the services of the natives of this country, and that the flag of the merchant could not protect them. But strong as were the demands of America, we had made stronger in our day. - He accidentally had taken up the Statute Book on the table, and found a Statute of Anne, enacting, that any man, not merely who resided in England, but in any other country, and took the oaths of allegiance to the Queen, should be considered as under English protection. With some objection, he approved the tenor of the Address.
Lord Harrowby in [illegible] say, that if the Americans insisted on our giving up the right of impressment, there was no probable end of the dispute between the two countries; and interminable war must ensue; and he thought that all who heard him would be ready to expend their last shilling in such a cause.
Lord Erskine agreed that the war which America was waging against us was a war of passion, but it was a passion provoked by our aggression. There were principles of honour among nations, as there were among individuals; and the party first aggrieved must not be the first to succumb. As to the proposal respecting the impressment of seamen, in his mind there was a great difference between suspending a right, and altogether giving it up. America did not call upon us to give up this right, but to take time to consider whether it might not be suspended.
The Lord Chancellor must protest against the doctrine of his Learned and Noble Friend, that our most important rights ought to be suspended even for a moment. Unless America should think proper to alter her tone, he did not see how the national differences could be settled.
The motion was carried without a division.

HOUSE OF COMMONS, [centered]
Feb. 18. [centered]
Lord Castlereagh entered upon this subject in the same manner, and almost in the same words as those adopted by Earl Bathurst in the other House, and concluded by moving a similar address.
Mr. A. Haring did not believe that the assertions of the Noble Lord were correct as to the hostile disposition of the American Government, whose conduct was influenced by the European system of Politics. He contended, that the Orders in Council were in fact, with them the grounds of the declaration of war. He did not believe that the Noble Lord had at all exaggerated the frauds that were practiced in granting Certificates of American citizenship. The Noble Lord calculated the number of native Americans on board our navy at about 1600; and the proportion of British seamen in the American marine service would not be over-rated, if stated at that of ten to one- (Hear!) - This, to be sure, was a very satisfactory state of things - But the Noble Lord talked somewhat too lightly of 1600 Americans being in our Navy - He would ask, what would be the indignant feelings of the people of this country, if they knew that so many of their fellow citizens were forcibly compelled to serve in the navy of another Power? The Hon. Gentleman then condemned the conduct of the war.
Mr. A. J. Foster said, the Hon. Gentleman had asked whether, if the revocation of the Orders in Council had been known in America before the Declaration of War, such knowledge would not have prevented the Declaration? This, he said, was a point on which he could not venture to give a decided opinion. It was certain, that in all his communications with Mr. Monroe and the American Government, great stress was laid on the Orders in Council; and he always looked on them as the grievances of which not only the Government but the American people, complained most heavily. The war party, he believed, had taken great pains to keep alive and forment every subject of dispute which had for many years incidentally arisen between the two countries. He thought the Government were put sufficiently masters of their own conduct; nor did he believe they could have prevailed on Congress, last year, to have acted otherwise than they did. There were two parties in America that were very warm against this country. One of them had been in favour of the French revolution from its commencement, the other was what was called the Anti-Anglican party, who were very active in using every effort to bring about a war with this country. While Washington lived, he was able to influence them so far as to make them regard their own interests, but when he died they had succeeded in obtaining a majority - not a real majority of the people of America - but a majority of Congress, which they had effected by creating new States, and making new Senates in the southern parts of America, by which means they had been able to out-vote the Northern States, to their very great injury. New settlers continually arrive in America, and particularly from Ireland. The more intelligent of them lost not a moment in acquiring a seat in Congress, and they had been among the foremost and loudest in their clamours against this country. He himself knew of six Irishmen who were in Congress, and they all voted for the war.
Mr. Whitbread lamented, that with the navy of Great Britain against that of America, which consisted of only four frigates and a few sloops, two of our finest frigates were now in their possession, captured by only two of theirs; this was a reverse which English officers and English sailors had not before been used to; and from such a contemptible navy as that of America had always been held, and no one could suppose such an event could have taken place.
Mr. Canning felt himself called upon no [sic] declare with all the candour which was due to question of magnitude, that the Noble Lord (Castlereagh) had his unqualified support in his vindication of the real and indisputable right of Great Britain; although he was at the same time free to confess, that in several points very material to the consideration of the subject, he differed most essentially from the Noble Lord. With the naval establishment of Great Britain he had no fault to find; but he had to find fault with the distributions and employment of it. - He had to express his surprise, that the pen was held in the hand of the Admiral which ought to have launched the thunder. He felt it would be altogether unjust to blame the skill and courage of the officers and men in our service; yet he was bound to declare, that he was not one of those who said, that we ought not to think of the capture of the Guerriere and the Macedonian. His decided opinion was, that it could not be too deeply thought of. It was a subject which in every sense was calculated to rouse the patriotism and excite the sensibilities of the country. The spirit of our seamen had been unconquerable, and any diminution of the popular opinion with respect to that glorious and triumphant spirit, was to his mind a dreadful and alarming consideration. He trusted, however, that the spell which fascinated every mind in the confident expectation of our naval victories, would never be broken; and that accumulated instances of triumphs no less brilliant than those of former times would not cease to occur. What he had chiefly to deplore was the unaccountable inactivity which was adopted, when vigour and promptitude were dictated by the very state of things in America.
Mr. Croker said, that the view which the Right Hon. Gentleman had taken of this subject arose from imperfect information. On the very day of the declaration of war, Commodore Rodgers put to sea without orders; and a few days afterwards the British squadron followed him, to cover and protect the Jamaica homeward-bound fleet. Sir John Warren found him, and chased him (hear, hear!) and that gallant Admiral had since received no mitigatory or restrained orders relative to the offensive conduct he was to pursue. The whole question now turned on our right of impressment; and on this subject an Hon. Gentleman (Mr. Whitbread) has adopted an expression of Mr. Monroe, that "we naturalised foreign seamen into our service, analogously to the manner in which the Americans naturalised our seamen into theirs." This Mr. Croker denied; there hardly passed a day in his life in which it did not fall to his duty to discharge seamen after more than two years of British service, at the request of the country which claimed their allegiance through its consul or otherwise. And yet, Mr. Monroe asserted, that we impressed American seamen and kept them! Whereas an American certificate of citizenship had inspite [sic – in spite] of all the abuses which were known to be practised upon such documents, been always respected by the Admiralty. It was but the other day that a man produced a certificate protecting a person of light eyes and fair complexion; the man was a Mulatto! (a laugh). And, at another time, a certificate was produced in London, purporting to have been sworn at New-York five days before (a laugh). Surely, if this man had the faculty of traveling from New-York to London in five days, he needed not to have applied to any body for a discharge from any place. - The question was carried nem. con.


Bridge-Town, May 1. [centered]

By a vessel that arrived at St. Bartholomew in a short passage from America, it is learnt that a Russian Ambassador had reached that country, but for what purpose has not transpired; - it is conjectured, however, that he may have been sent by the Emperor Alexander to act as a Mediator between the United States and Great Britain.

The Hornet ship of war, that destroyed the Peacock brig off Demerary, has arrived in an American port, and states the loss of only one man killed in the action with our brig of war, but that one of her boats was upset in removing the Peacock's crew, and thirteen of her men were drowned. The Constitution and Essex frigates were at sea, and we understand that the sum of 100,000 dollars has been voted by Congress, as a remuneration to the crew of the Constitution for the capture and destruction of the Guerriere and Java men of war.

The schooner Prudent, 21 days from Halifax, arrived at noon, by which we are informed that the British force in Upper Canada had lately destroyed a fort on the American lines, as well as a number of armed vessels that they had on some part of the Lakes.

We learn that the Dragon, 74, has had the good fortune to capture a valuably laden American East Indiaman said to have belonged to the owners of the Thomas Penrose, that was brought hither by His Majesty's ship Tribune.

The Curlew has taken a large ship from Bordeaux bound for America, which is valued at 400,000 dollars. The Poictiers and another line of battle ship were in sight at the time of capture, and the prize had previously been chased by two British frigates.

It is reported that Governor Harrison, and a great part of the troops under his command, have been made prisoners by the British and Indian forces on the frontiers of Canada, and they had been carried in triumph to Kingston - Their General is said to have been taken by an Indian Chief.

It is stated in the Barbados Papers by the Blackbird, that "a Packet, with Mails for March, arrived at Surinam on the 22d ultimo; but, having sprung a leak, it will be some time before she will be able to proceed on her voyage:" - but had this been the case, they would certainly have found some means of forwarding the bags.

This morning, the Royal Battalion of the Militia paraded in Cumingsburg. We understand, the day of parade, until the 4th of June, is to be every Saturday.

It appears, that the books still open for the Exchange of the Colonial Paper Money, will be finally closed on the 1st of June.

Mr. Binning, of Berbice, we find, has opened a Suite of Subscription Rooms, in the house lately occupied by J. B. Rule, Esq. under the patronage of Governor Gordon.

Cleared from the Custom house, on the 4th instant - the schooner Paulina, Faure, for Cayenne.

At length, it will be seen under the head of Barbados Intelligence, that the Hornet has returned to an American port, and has given her account of the destruction of the Peacock. Those therefore, of this Community, who have hitherto withheld their subscription to the monument of Capt. Peake, &c on account of an existing doubt - may now come forward with safety.

St. George's Church, we find, is to be open every Sunday and Holyday in future, at nine o'clock, for the performance of Divine Service, in the Dutch language, [sic - comma]
