WILLIAM KING, Esq. (in the Chair) [centered]
ROBERT KINGSTON, Esq. [centered]
JOSEPH BEETE, Jun. Esq. q.q. [centered]

Mr. NAGHTEN stated, that being about to leave the Colony for Europe, he requested permission to resign his situation as Trustee of Plantation Peter's Hall, and that another Gentleman should be appointed in his room. That the accounts of the estate should be submitted to the inspection of a Sworn Book keeper, and if found correct, that he should be discharged from all responsibility that was attached to him in the capacity of Trustee.
A greater number of Creditors not attending in consequence, it is supposed, of Mr. BRERETON's counter-advertisement, those present, after considering of the matter on which they were all called together, unanimously Resolved, That Mr. NAGHTEN should be relieved from all responsibility as Trustee from this day.
On the question being put, who should be appointed in his room; is [sic] was considered that the number of Creditors present was too small to authorise them to appoint one; but Mr. JOHN McGAREL having been proposed as a proper person for that situation, as representing Mr. Naghten's claim, and it being understood that he would appropriate the share of commission he would derive therefrom in the same manner as Mr. NAGHTEN had, viz. to the credit of Mr. BRERETON's account - It was resolved, that he should be appointed, subject to the approbation of the majority of the Creditors at another meeting, which is requested at Mr. MARSH's Hotel, on Tuesday next, the 22d inst.

The Walsingham Packet, with the April Mail, arrived on Wednesday. Her London Papers are to the 29th of that month - and our Extracts will be found interesting. There are however, only two or three subjects we think necessary to particularly introduce to the public notice.

[Transcriber's note: European news not transcribed]

We are happy to find, that although at this important crisis, there may be a degree of apathy in this part of the world - there is none at home, in those connected with it. For, in respect to the Produce of the United States, several Petitions have already been presented to the British Parliament, against any importation during the war - particularly of COTTON; and, in allusion to the opening of the Eastern trade, there appears to be an opposition forming, which promises success - and witnesses have been examined at the Bar of the House of Commons, whose evidence is entirely in favour of the old system.

There is nothing particularly important from Spain - and with regard to America, we almost begin to doubt even the existance of hostilities! - Sir John's system of warfare, may be effectual; but it is certainly the most silent that was ever known - and perhaps as slow in its progress.

LOCALITIES. [centered]

Official notice is this day given from the King's House, of the death of Her Royal Highness the Dutchess of Brunswick, and that of a general mourning in this colony to commence to-morrow. Her Royal Highness expired on the 23d of March. She was in the 76th year of her age, and the last surviving sister of our Sovereign. She was born on the 31st of July, 1737; and on the 17th of January, 1764, was married to the late Duke of Brunswick-Wolfenbittle, by whom she had issue three sons and two daughters, besides the Princess of Wales.

Major Grant, of the 60th, has again become the Acting-Governor of Berbice. His Excellency the Governor having taken his departure to Barbados, for the recovery of his health. His Honor took the usual oaths of government, on the 12th instant.

The curious non-descript, which lately induced the redoubtable Champlin "to hoist the bloody flag" and cut so many capers off Surinam - must certainly have been the Coquette. At first he had doubts as to her being a vessel of war; then she was a Liverpool letter of marque; and lastly, a frigate! - See, Tuesday's Gazette.

The Mail for Europe will be closed at the Post-Office, at six o'clock on Tuesday evening.

Cleared from the Custom-House on the 15th - the Ship Venus, Knight, for London - on the 16th, the Ship Sisters, Gemmell, for Glasgow; the Schooner Catharine, White, for Bermuda; and the Brig Farina, Burrell, for Dublin - and on the 17th, the ship Hero, Levett, for London; and the Brig Harriot, Mason, for Liverpool.

Departed this Life, yesterday morning - A. de St. Marie, Esq. of Plantation Versailles.

GREAT-BRITAIN. [centered]

London, April 29. -

A Court Martial was held on the 24th instant, at Portsmouth, on the remaining Officers and ship's company of the Java. General Hislop and the other passengers, were examined: and the Court agreed, that the capture of the ship was caused by her being totally dismasted; that after the fall of Capt. Lambert the action having been continued with equal zeal, ability, and bravery, by Lieut. Chads, until she became a perfect wreck - the said Lieut. Chads, Officers, and crew, should be honourably acquitted. Rear-Admiral Graham Moore, (the President), in returning Lieut. Chads his sword, addressed him nearly as follows: - "I have much satisfaction in returning your sword. Had you been an officer who had served in comparative obscurity all your life, and never before heard of, your conduct on the present occasion has been sufficient to establish your character as a brave, skilful, and attentive officer."

General Hislop attended at the War-Office, yesterday, and was introduced to the Commander in Chief on his return to England on parole.

The Planters and West India Merchants of Glasgow have transmitted a petition to the House of Commons, praying, "that the Act of the 43d of his Majesty, chap 153, may be repealed; and further, that all articles of growth and produce of the American States, may be prohibited from being imported into this kingdom during the war."

The Manufacturers and Spinners in Manchester have memorialised his Majesty's Ministers, "praying that all American cottons may be interdicted from coming to Great Britain during the war." And the Chamber of Commerce and Manufactures, of Glasgow, have also sent off a petition to Parliament, praying that the circumstances of the cotton trade may be investigated before enacting any regulation calculated to affect it.

The ship-owners of Glasgow have transmitted a Petition to the House of Commons, praying, "That the Act of the 43d of his Majesty, chap. 153, be repealed in so far as to prohibit the importation, by neutral ships, of any goods or merchandize, the produce of an enemy's country, directly or indirectly, into the United Kingdom."

By a statement printed by order of the House of Lords, the following was the British naval force on the American stations, on the 1st Feb. viz. – Newfoundland, under Sir J. T. Duckworth; one sloop, one brig, and two frigates. North America and the West Indies, under Admiral Sir J. B. Warren: 11 ships of the line, one fifty, 33 frigates, two troop frigates, 38 sloops, 12 brigs and smaller vessels.
