On the arrival yesterday, of the Schooners Phoenix and Brothers, from Barbados - Reports, more than usually numerous, were in immediate circulation.
From Europe, the May-Mail had arrived, and, it was said, communicated the intelligence of a defeat of the French army (under Bonaparte in person) having taken place in the North; and from America, that Journals had been received to the 8th of May, announcing as follows: - the departure of Mr. Gallatin for Russia; the sailing of the President and Congress frigates on a cruise; the evacuation of East Florida, by the United States' Army; and the taking possession, by the British troops, of Spesutie Island.
But the most romantic report, (and of course, the most agreeable), had for its subject - a CHALLENGE - sent from the British frigate Acasta, to the American, United States - with the following conditions: that, in consequence of the acknowledged inequality of force, and of a pledge that no vessel should come to her assistance in case of danger - the former should be allowed to select her crew from the whole blockading squadron. The result was, after five hours' fighting, the capture of the latter - by boarding!
