the Packet, for a few articles of Foreign News - the most particular of which
has Bonaparte for its subject. On the 16th of April, it appears, this Scourge
of Europe left the Palace of St. Cloud, for that which we are led to believe,
will prove his Last campaign. Previous to his departure, however, he invested
the Empress with the functions of Regent. The Parisian Writer will be found,
equally brilliant and diverting as usual.

am honoured with your letter of the 17th inst. inclosing an Address from the
Inhabitants of Berbice.
rejoice to find that my endeavours to perform with impartiality, the important
duties which in that colony devolve upon its chief magistrate, should by the
loyal and enlightened inhabitants, be deemed worthy of so distinguishing a mark
of their regard.
approbation of virtuous men is the most valuable enjoyment of life: it is
therefore highly satisfactory to me, to see, in the signature of this
honourable testimonial, so very large a portion of the worth, and of the
independent spirit of the colony.
should be unworthy of the unvaried, hospitable, and polite attentions, I
experienced in Berbice, were I not equally alive to the kind expressions of
private feeling contained in this Address. Should it be our lot to meet no
more, I shall not cease to indulge the pleasing expectation, that even time
will not soon subdue the reciprocal sentiments, in which, I make no doubt, we
should have continued to live.
Sword I accept with pride, as a sacred trust. - It is particularly flattering
to mark your approbation of my conduct in the discharge of one public duty, by
confiding to my hand the instrument of a more glorious destiny, which, in
common with every British soldier, I look forward to be one day called on to
fulfil [sic]. Such a day would bring you all with added force to my
thank you for transmitting the address to me, and beg you to convey the reply.
Assure the respectable body who deputed you, how highly I value the
distinction, and how sincerely I wish them every earthly blessing.
have the honour to be,
faithful and obedient servant,

from the Custom-House, on the 21st - No. Sa. del Carmen, Maritugares, for the
Society is stated to have been detected, which, according to the French
description of it, had for its object the invention and propagation of bad news
– in other words, it was a society whose wish was that the people should
know the real state of affairs, and no longer be imposed upon by French
the Bill for renewing the East India Company's Charter comes before the House,
we understand it to be the intention of Mr. Canning to move an amendment to
this effect – that the Trade to China be thrown open at the expiration of
