Wee lay before our Readers, an Extract from the

ropean politics.
Barbados, Mereury Office, Tth Sept. 3 pr. a.
As we were going to Press, the Princess Elisabeth
Packet (No. 2.) came to anchor SI days from Pal-
mouth, with the Second Mail for July.—From oral
information, we understand, that she is not the bear-
er of any intelligence ofthatimportance which would
authorize our delaying this publication, until the
London Papers are delivered at the Post Olfice, but
it is stated that measures bad gone to take command
of the French troops tn Italy.—Soult is appointed to
that army, which was uncer the orders of Suchet.—
field Marshal Wellington had taken a fortified con-
vent, and afterwards meved to Catalonia. —The Earl
of Aburdeen was about to proceed to join the Con-
vress Of Bellegireat Ministers. —Parliament was pro-
rogued on the 22d July, aud was to meet again on
the Wd Aug.—The Chichester Packet from these
Islands had arrived at Falmouth.—Commodore Rod-
gers was crutsing with his flect in the North Seas, se-
veral vessels had been dispatched in quest. of bim.—
The Galatea frigate is appointed convoy for vessels
tothe West Indies that were preparing to juin others
at Falmouth.
A motion was made previous to the breaking up of
Parliament, to lay an additional duty of 6d per tb.
on American cotton, and carned by a majority af 4.
With regard to produce, accounts by this Mail
are by no means favorable —The Jamaica and wind-
ward Island feet had stocked the market with 28,000
puncheons of rum, and 124,000 hhds. of Sugar. Sales
of Sugar have been received at 73 | Rum, at 4 | Cot-
ton 22d., Coffee, no sale whatever nor expected;
while matters in the North remain unsettled.
The Armestice between the French aud the Allied
armies in the North of Gerinany, is reported to haye
been extended.
Letters state, the Colonies Demerary, Berbice, and
Surinam, were to be given tothe Russians.
The Berbice Mail Boat was waiting in Barbados
the arrival of the Ist Angust Mail.
The Guiana Packet for July, had been arrested at
Falmouth, for debt, and the Mail for the Southern
colonies would be forwarded by the Chichester Pac-
ket, now daily looked for.

—Immediately after this suspension, Mr. Lochhead was
Strougly pressed by some of his fricnds to make some
coucession by way of apology; they said that the Governor
was highly irritated at Che mannes in which he (the Piaintiff)
had written to hin; but that bis siolence was merely fem.
porary, and they were confident he would accept of the
slightest apology, provided only an apology was made. ‘I he
Piainull yielded to this; but, alter one or two attempts, this
also failed, as it was required of him to retract a letter w lich,
as Superintendant of the Botanic Garden, he had thought
it his duty to write to the $ ‘cretary at War; and this he
would not consent to do, and there the matter rested.—-( The
correspondence was here read boteéwn the Plaintiil aad His
l.acellency of his Secretary, as also the letter to the Secre-
tary at War therein a luded to)—What could have been the
vilensive part of that letter, was not difficult to say.—hivery
person might see that it was the mentioning, the barcly sug.
gesting that the old Barrack ground adjacent to the Gar.
den, which had been late.y in possession of His Ex ‘ellency,
and of which the tesiporary possession had been by him yi.
ven to two other Ge tlemen, would in all probability be
atafutur pertud wanted for the use of the estal'ishaent,
vr coukl even now be rendered Publicly us fil as a small
Spice Plaaiation, &c.—This was touching a ten ler points
it was trac, indecd, that the Colony supposed it had a
claiw upon this sand for public benefit, but as tu the
foundation of that claim could not now be laid hold ol, it
had tacitly fallen into the hands of bis Iexcellency, and
yet Che Plaintil dared to mention it, its present disposal,
aud the way i¢ might be rendered beneficial, not to hime
self but to his country. There now followed two letters
which he was sorry his clieut should have ever written:
they were by much tuo apologctc (one to the Right Ion.
the Secretary at War, the other to his Eaxccllenucy, both
of date Tish Feb.); but the Gentlemen of the Jury should
attow how tacy were obtained.—'l hey, Were written at
t e request of his Eacellency’s Sceretary, onder his own

the reception of such apologies, it was to be supposed,
that eminity, Chat even revenge had goue to its utmost exe
tent; that ale. Locthead having been reduced to. the sie

excellent to have a Giane’s streugth, but tyrauous to use

was to be first prostrated, aud then immolated. Perses

were held Ly the Plaintitl, his fault was without apology,
atguement, or expiation. His apology was indeed poc-
keted, but his dismassal was determined on, and superse.
ded he was accordingly. —Let us now consider a litte this
Superseding business, Was this also authorssed or Sance
tioned by the Privy Council? f£ am sure, coutinued the
Counsel, that could never be. I know many of the Gene
(lemen of the Council too well, evcr to believe that. the
could sanction cither that, or the appointment of Mr.
Grant to the Garden, ‘These Gentlemen know too well

ment. A Patcntee, for instance, can only be mulcted
thereby of half his pay they know also that in the army,
such proceedings as those azainst his client never could
take place. An oflicier under an arrest loses neither pay,
quarters, nor rations, before heis tricd by a Court-Mar.
tial, 1 canuot therefore believe, that this act was the ree
sult of their advice: itis almost equally difficult to sup.
pose without a proof, that the suspension was even sanc.
lioned by their authority, or that any part of this colour.
able and shifting eouduct could attach to them, and [
cannot believe, that the Privy Council should have so
implicated themselves, to be made the mere tools. of the
obloquy ouly, without any participation in the patronage
and power Ifere the Counsel thought it necessary to
advert to his own conduct, and clear himself from the il.
liberal charges made against him, for fomenting and SUPe
porting what they chose to call the contumacy of the
P.amtiff. He never was called upon by the Plaintiff un.
til the 16th; in the interim, he saw the Defendant,
French, and warned him of the folly and the consequences
of what he was about to do, and saw not his client until
the 18th and 19th. ‘I'he Plaintiff was turned out on the
20th;—this day happened to be Saturday, and he received
orders to have the houseempty for Mr. Grant,s reception
on Monday morning: such was the complete spirit of
malice that governed all the proceedings in the present case,
—The Lord,s day was graciously given him wherein to
remove his family, furniture, bouks, &c. That day which
belongs even to slaves, that day which is to be kept sacred
View original to God, and no work but those of necessity and mercy,
had certainly becu made a day of necessity to the Plaintin;
but, if his pursucrs allowed it as aday of mercy on their
part, well might it 1 of them, that their tender mercies,
like those of the wicked, werecrucl! They had provided no
retreat for the houscless strangers, but as far as the mandate
of “‘little bricf authority’? would go, they might have
been obliged to seck such shelter as nature gives to the
wild beasts of the ficld.—But it was not so. ‘To theeter-
nal honor of tiie habitants of St. Viucent, almost ever)
house was opened to them, and every assistance rendered
which generous huspitality could bestow.—The Learned
Connsel said, ‘* hat ovce more he rook the opportuniry
of advising Mr, Brenci tu take care to get himself indem-
nifled, for that he, for his part, should not sufler the
Plaintifi to waut the Pencil of the Laws of his Country,
and,” added he, ‘tif the ¢ be integrity, honor, delicacy ,
propicty, justice, or equity lett, with tho-e who persuad.
ed the Defendant to act as he had done, [ hope, I tenst,
and Lam contident, they will feel themselves bound to in
demnify him.” Mr. Warner was then sworn to prove
the handwriting of his Wacelleney, and ackuowledged his
own as Secretary to the papers furming thei> part of the
correspondence, which he did; and also, that the two
last, written by the P.aintitt (dated the Lith Fcb.), were
written at his request, met with his approval, and that
he had considered them as perfectly satisfactury.— Fvi-
dence was then called, to prove the act of expulsion : this
was done by the evidence of the Constable, whom Mr.
French took with him for that purpose, and by that of
Mr. Barber, the Assistant in the Garden, who was pre.
sent at the time it took place. The Manager of the Es.
tate adjoining the Gaiden was also called upon, and gave
evidence, that for sonic firewood Mer. Lochhead had per-
mitted him to take from the Garden, for the use of said
Estate, Mr. Louchhead fad never received or expected any
persoual benelit, aud that at was junked up and carried
