                  Demerary, June 29, 1813.
IN consequence of the little attention paid to a former notice, relative to the rendering of accounts, it becomes necessary once more to state, that unless accounts for articles furnished to the Royal Engineer, Quarter and Barrack, and Commissariat Departments, are rendered at this Office, on or before the 24th day of next month, they will after this latter period, be totally disregarded.

The Sloop Blackbird, Dill, from Barbados, arrived yesterday; and, in consequence of the receipt there, of the first Mails for May, has communicated European Intelligence to a late date.

The arrival in England of the sloop of war Childers, dispatched by Sir John B. Warren with a notification to his Government, that the Russian Minister at the United States, had proposed to be the Mediator between the two countries - is the only novelty from that quarter. There is no doubt the mediation will be resumed.

The Barbados Papers (to the 19th instant) by the Blackbird, make no mention of the Challenge, reported in our last. Hoaxing must be a pleasant pastime - for we have certainly plenty of it.

LOCALITIES. [centered]

We are happy to announce the appointment of Brigadier-General Murray (our Acting-Governor) to be Adjutant-General of the Forces, serving in the Windward and Leeward Islands, under the Command of Lieut.-Gen. Sir G. Beckwith.

A circumstance occurred yesterday, as singular as it is unfortunate. That fine new Ship the Ramoncita, now in the river, from the sudden shifting of a few casks of sugar, during the removal of her ballast, completely upset, and immediately went down. Capt. Venables, and two or three friends, who were in the cabin, with much difficulty saved their lives. Hopes are, however, confidently entertained, of the ship's ultimate recovery. We shall give further particulars in our next.

The Festival of St. John, on Thursday last, was commemorated at Marshal's Hotel by the Chosen Friends, with their accustomed conviviality.

The Carteret Packet, which sailed hence on the 8th of March, for England, has safe arrived.

The hull of the Demerary brig of war, is to be sold, in Barbados, on the 30th instant.
