We have received this week Barbados Papers con-
taining Londou news to the 25th Keb. of which the
following, in haste, are some extracts of them.
Bridge-Town, March 27.
The first Mail for I'cbruary was received here on the
25th inst. by His Majesty’s brig Pedccan, from Falmouth.
Phe London Papers enclosed in the Mail were ouly to the
16th of the month, but we have been favoured with two
uf later date, the 20th and 25.h; the latter of which is im.
portant, for it, conveys to us information of the rapid and
victorious progress of the Russians, who have gained pus.
session of Konigsberg, by the reducion of which the enenty
lust 1300 men prisoners, besides 8000 of Ins troops that
were compelicd to remain in that city, owing to the er.
hausted state to which they were reduced. Sume accounts
state that Dantzic had also surrendered, but of this seme
doubts were cotertained; at any rate, it is knowh that
the Russian armies had closely invested it, and although
the garrisou may be well supplied, and the number of
(roups extensive, yet the disasters that have closely fol.
lowed the french of late, will operate very powerfully in
deciding the siege. This once eliccted, the whole line ot
the Baltic will be secured fur the admission of British ma.
nefactures and the produce of her colonies, which are in
@ cat demand throughout the whole of that Coutinent,—
Accounts have been received from the Marquis Welling.
fon, which state him to be still at Preynada; but should:
the enemy remain much longer in, of which there appears
to be an opinion that they will not (and indeed, some
persons go to the lenght of asserting, that they are al.
ready withdrawing), operations upon a more extensive
scale will shortly Le commenced.
The American ship that was brouglit in on Saturday last
by the Tribune frigate, is the Thomas Penrose, of WPui-
ladelphia, and had been 114 days from Cauton, with a
very valuable cargo consisting of silks, chia ware, tea,
nankeens, vermillion, camphor, &c. &c.—She is estimated
to be worth upwards of £50,000.
His Majesty’s ship Cleopatra and Frolic brig, 12 days
from Bermuda with a convoy of 25 sail, came in on ‘Thurs
day morning. We thus learn, that Commodore Hotham,
in La Hogue, with the Valiant, also a 74, had reinfor.
ced Sir John B. Warren’s squadron, which consisted of
at least 15 of that class, besides a considerable number of
frigates and smaller vessels. ‘They have taken several pri.
vateers, and are daily capturing and destroying American
inerchantmen, of which not less thau 2U0 of deflerent de.
scription have been ascertained from the 16th Sept. 1812,
to the 26th Feb, last ; and it Is supposed that in the har.
bour of Bermuda there are now at least 150 sail. Pro
visions of every species, and other articles, are in the
greatest abundance at that island, aud of course the mare
View original ket is cheap. Information is also thus obtained, that tha
Congress of the United States had recently passed an Act,
by which, after the termination of the existing war, the
employment of foreign seamen in American ships is to be
prohibited, .
The General Armstrang American privateer ‘chooner,
has returned to these seas; as we learn that she‘had lately
been cdased off Surinam by the Crane brig of war; and
on the coast of Demerary was fallen in with by his Ma.
jesty.s ship Coquette, from which she also escaped by su.
perior sailing and iu the chace we are informed she killed
two men and considerably injured the rigging of the Co.
quette, with ghe 42-pounder long gun that she carries on
a traverse
She has since captured the ship William,
bound hither from New Brunswick, with which it Seems
she passed to windward of this Island on Sunday last, and
on the following day put the crew of that vessel on the
Diamond Rock ; and having placed a Prizemaster and men
on board, dispatched here with orders to enter some Brit.
ish port and dispose of the cargo—the former of these
being to represent the Captain of the vessel by assuming
his name, which we have heard was Cunningham—this is
very deep policy, and by being in possession of the ship’s
Papers, itis likely may succeed.
A Swedish brig, laden with flour and rice, from New.
York, came in on Sunday last; aud there is now a ship
beating up from leeward, under Swedish colours, suposed
to be from that port, with acargo of flour.
It is reported by the way of Antigua, that the Dragon,
74, and a frigate, have lately been driven ashore in Lyno.
Haven Bay.—This may have some connexion with the
rumour stated in our last, of some frigates having been
injured in the Chesapeake.

Mr. Whitbread, in the British House of Commons on
the 21th nit. withdrew his intended motion on the Subject
of Peace, which was to have been discussed that day se’
nnight ; but reserved the right of renewing the question,
should he think fit, at any period previous to the termi.
nation of the present Sessiou,
His Majesty’s ship Sceptre, 71, was giving instructions
fo the ships that were lying at Portsmouth on the 19th
ult. destined for the W. I. and it was said to be her ine
tention to sail as soon as the wind proved favorable, with.
out waiting for 12 vessels that were in the Downs in rea-
dines to juin convoy,
We understand that the Prince Regent has determined
to dispose of the Tellership of the Exchequer, vacant by
the death of the Marquis of Buckingliam, in a manner most
hovourable to His Royal Highness’s feelings, and must
creditable to his Government. He has bestowed it upon
the eldest son of his evee to be lamented Minister, Mr.
Perceval, upon the understanding that he relinquishes the
pension of & 1000. a year granted him by Parliamentia
the last Session, and the reversion of another 1000. a
) var which was settled upon him at th: death of his mother:
London, Feb. 8.—The line of battle ships that can be
immediately got ready, are ordered to proceed with all
possible dispatch to the Downs, to watch the motions of
the Freuch fleet in the Scheldt. It is supposed to be the
intention of Bonaparte to remove them to some other port,
on account of the rapid advance of the Russian army.
Some Datch and German Papers have been received,
the former to the 2d inst. ‘They contain a Berlin article
of so late a dateas the 19th ult. which aunounces, on the
authority of the Warsaw Gazette, that Macdonald had
an action at Tapia, on his retreat from ‘Tilsit, and that
Surat, on the 4th, was attacked by the Russians at
Miehlsach, and forced to remove his headsquacters first to
Kibing and next to Maricuwerder.
Feb, 12.)—Paris Papers have been received to the Sih,
and the measures which we couajectured to be in contem.
plation have been adopted — A Regency has been provided
in the event of the death of Bonaparte during the minorily
of his son—The Austrian Princess is to be. the Regent,
and she is to be assisted by a Council. She and her Son
are to be crowned—a spectacle that may amuse the Parisi.
ans fur a day, but will do as much towards consolidating
Bonaparte’s dynasty as his bulletins have done towards
persuading the people that he has not been defeated and
disgraced by the Russians. His power may last during his
life, but the moment the breath is out of his body, all these
laws and regulations aud provisions for ensuring respect
and obedience fo his son will be mere waste paper, the
‘shadow of a shade.”’
There issome news from the North in these Papers,
All the hopes of the French, which, not six months ago,
were to be contented with nothing less than the sabjuga.
tion of Russia, are now fixed upon the successful defence
of one of their own fortresses, Danizic is said to be
garrisoned by upwards of 30.009 men, and capable of
making the most obstinate and vigorous resistance,
Thorn is defended by 6000 men; the Bavarians are be.
tween that towa and Posen ; Schwartzenberg is at Pultusk
and Ostrolenka, Regnier on the right, and the Prussian
corps is re-formed between Stettin and Posen. Stettin,
however, is a cousiderable distance from Posen.
We have some loose and seattered information relative
to the Russians, but no detailed accounts.—They had
crossed the Vistula below Thom, and had advanced to
Bromberg, and even Marienberg: but Ney is said to have
sent Gen. Gerard to Bromberg, who had repulsed them.
The Captain of a merchant vessel that left Corunna so
lately as Sunday last, states, that the French are fast re.
tiring out of Spain, and that they had again evacuated St,
Andero. The utmost exertion is used by the Spaniards
in raising new Icvies. Ut is supposed in afew months the
View original allied armies in the Peninsula will consist of upwards of
250,000 men.
Feb. 16]—The following is the most material informa-
tion brought by the Mail arrived this morning :
Lisbon, Feb. 3.
Extract of an offcial dispatch from Marshal General
the Marquis of Wellington, to His Excellency Senor
Miguel Pereira Forjaz, dated Head-quarters, Frey nada,
Jan. 27 :—
‘+I returned here on the 27th inst. Jt appears that the
enemy has not madeany essential alteration in the position
of his armies during my absence.—The three arinies of
Portugal, the centre and the south, are united in Castile
under King Joseph, whose head-quarters are now at Ma-
drid.— The army of Portugal is under the command of
General Reille, who lately came from the army of the
north, and has his head-quacters in V alladolid.—The army
of the centre is under the orders of Conde d'Erlon, who.
formerly was employed in the Army of the South, and
commanded for a short time the Army of Portugal, after
‘the allies retired from the ‘T'urmes. His head-quarters are
in the vicinity of Madrid ; and the Aviny of the South is
under Marshal Soult’s orders, whose head.quarters are at
Toledo.—The Army of the South was lately drawn towards
the neighbourhood of the Tejo, having moved towards the
place of Toledo the divisions of that army which were in
the Province of Avila, and having them replaced in Avila
by the first division of the army of Portugal.—Il have not
received any recent accounts by Ww hich ] can from an wlea
of the state of afuirsin the North of Spain. Gen, Mina
appears to be actively euiployed against the enemy in
Navarre, and he, as well as Gen. Longa, has caused him
great loss. The latter destroyed GUO men and tuok two
pieces of artillery, in anaction ™ ith cheenemy on the 30th
of November.— My Jast accounts trom Alicant are dated
the latter end of December, at which epoch part of the
reinforcements which were expected from Sicily had ar.
rived, and Lt.-Gen. Joord 1V, Bentinck was ex pected, —
The allicd English and Potuguese armies occupy the same
cantonments in which they were in the beginaing of Dec.
—The Spanish troops are likewise all in cantonments.””
Lisbon, Feb. 6.—The French in Madsid say, that
Soult has been ca!led to France with 30,000 men, of whom
15,000 proceed to Italy. Soult, with his Stail, was still,
on the 24th Jan. in ‘Voleds, with 10,000 infantry, 8000
having anteriorly marched for Cuenca. ‘There appears
no doubt of many French families having taken refuge in
Navarre to avoid the persecution of Bonanarte, as well as
many youths tu avoid the conscription. Gen. Mina, to
whom these unfortunate victims of Corsican tyranny pre-
sented themselves, is said to have applied to the Spanish
Government for instructions how to act.
Lisbon, Feb. 8.—Our troops remain in their winter
quarters. Lord Wellington is in advance at I reynada,
and Gen. Jlill at Coria.—The Northern French Army is

LET, LANMORIE, &e. ia Paris.
Mallet had been under arrest for several years, and had
been transferred to a private house for the reception of
state prisoners, at the end of the Rue de St. Antoine,
where the prisoners had somziinic permission to go out in
the evening and see their friends. On the day the conspi-
ration broke out, he proceeded at three in the morning to
the barracks of Popencourt, with a Senatus Consulium,
which announced the death of Bonaparte, and gave hin
the command of Paris. He harrangued the so diers, pro.
mised leave of absence to. those wh destred it, and carried
300 away with him, with whom he proceeded to the pri-
son of La Force, where he exhibited au order for the re-
lease of Generals Lahorie and Guidal, who were in con.
finement there. One of these Generals repaired instantly
to the Hotel of the Minister of Police Savary ; the other
to the Hotel of the Prefect of Police, who were both sent
to the prison of La Force.
General Mallet went himself to the Commandant of Paris,
General Hullen, who making some resistance Mallet pulled
out a pistol! and shot him. The wound, however, was not
mortal. The ball broke his jaw-bone.
General Mallet had written in the morning a not to
_ Doucet, first aid-de-camp of Hullin’s, and replacing him
in his abscence, in which note he informed him, that Bona-
parte being dead he was appointed Commandant of Paris,
and that he. Doucet, was to concert with him the mea.

upon receiving this note, entertained some suspicion, and
sent for a person of the name of La Borde, another aid-
de-camp attached to the etat-major of Paris—Meanuwhile
Mallet entered, after having been to the Commandant’s,
who lives on the Place Vendommc, opposite Doucet’s
lodging, which Plase Mallet crossed on foot with a piquet

Doucct immediately replied, ‘*that he should receive no
order from bim ;”? upon which Mallet drew a pistol from
his pocket, but Laborde laid hold of his arm, and in ashort
time afterwards Mallet was arrested by the same soldiers
who were buta short time before under his orders.
Lahorie however had taken possession of the Hotel of
the Ministerof Police, from whence he sent ofi dispatches,
having sent for the Clerk and servants, who were informed
that they should all be retained in their several places,
From the dawn of day, Mallct had caused all the posts
to be occupied, and particularly the Treasury.
Doucet, having arrested Ge seral Mallet, had given orders
to rcli#ve the guards, and change the counterfign. He then
procecded to the prison of La Force, to release the Minister
and Prefect of Police, and arrest Cuidal.
