Tre Schooner Jackman, Capt. Merchant, arri-
ved here yesterday evening from Barbados, which
she left on the \st inst. There was no particular
news there when she sailed, but on coming out of
Carleisle-bay, she met the Packet going in, which
informed the Master there was good news from Eu-
rope. The Jackman brings Barbados Papers to the
30th ult. Our Packet had not arrived in Surinam
on Thursday last, the Ath inst.
The following article on the subject of his Majesty’s
aliment is from a Sunday paper:
‘Jt is known that, excepting (he privation of sight, his
Majesty, notwithstanding ois advanced age, labours under
no particuiar bodily infirmity. liven that temporary ale
chadion of understavding, which the whole nation deplores,
has been declared by medical men not to be insuscepubk
of cure. We can now state, upon pretty good authority,
that our venerable Sovereign has for some wecks past been
blessed with frequent lucid intervals, and waich, by the:
lony continuance, have, we understand, excited very fa-
vourable expectations among his medical attendants. A>
these hopes, however, may prove unfounded, we shall noe
dwell upou them. W heer Providence mity be pleased
(o restore his Maj@ty to permanent health, and ecnadls
him to resume the rets of State, timealune can shew, At
present it must be satisfactory to every virtuuus mind to
learn, that his Majesty is cxeinpt from pain, enjoys a
tranquil and composed state of mind, and is ma situauion
in which he can hear, without detriment or danger of r.-
lapse, the important occurrcrces of our times. —Matiisters
have, in consequence, at the desire of the Prince Regent,
and with the full approbauon of the mydical men, Commu.
nicated to His Majesty the public measures which they
have adopted during his illness—the line of policy Coat bas
been followed at home and abroad—the disasters and tiaal
ruin of the French armies in Russia last winter, with the
present situation of allairs is Germany—cone riding with
the late triumphs of the alied arms in Spain, ata the hap.
Py prospect that has tuceeby beea Opened of Che expulsi-
on of the enemy from that country. ‘The coumunicados
was made at different times, His Majesty listened througa-
out with eager but composed attention, and ca pressed the
highest pleasure at those parts of the recitals which narrat.
ed the triumphs of freedom of Germany. The skill and
valour which achieved the late victories in Spain drew from
him expressions of admiration. Lnconcluston, lus abajo: -

Among the beauties of your epistolary effusions, it \e
in)possible to pass over in sileuce that wonderful display of
wisdom and wit contained in the celebrated letters of Ne-

How many noble Lords fell asleep on the occasion the re.

feel inclined to doubt whether their Lordships were tho-
roughly awakened at the time of the division, by which
they pronounced the Admiralty Not Guilty, and the
‘“Sdesecration’”’? of the British Flag, a matter not worth
enquiry! It will remain for posterity to render due honours
to that new era of our Navafhistory. When the letters of
Nereus have sunk into oblivion, and the name of **Croker”
is remembered only in a song, our posterity will look back
with regret and indignation at the period, when, under the
evil destiny of a Regent, and the evil administration of a

Notice to Maréners.—Directions to avoid the dangers
in going into the Ruad of St. Thomas, by Mr. ‘Tuo. W1-
LEY, Master of his Majesty’s Sloop Crane :—
Being off the Island of St. John’s, about 5 or 6 miles,
steer W. or W. 4 N. for Buck Island, which will benear-
ly righta-head, you may approach within half or two-
thirds of a cable’s lenght all round in from 10 to 14 fath.
The passage is clear on both sides, except a Shoal on the
starboard side, called the Gold Ring, and only 12 feet on
the east end, and 8 fathoms all round it ;—you will avoid
this by keeping within a cable’s length of Buck Island,
until the Gap bears South, and Mr. Babona’s house (a
large white one), on St. Thomas side, North ;—you are
then abreast of the West end, and may steer N. W. by W.
for the small Fort on the west side of the entrance of the
harbour.—The anchorage is in genera] good; but on the
East side, abreast of the small Fort, is a small ‘Bay which
is quite clear ground, and well sheltered from Southerly
and 8S. W. winds, and can sail from thence at.all times. —
With large convoys, I have scen the ships likely to do
each other damage in coming out of the harbour.
