Justice of said Colony.
W EREAS we have perceived with great displeas-
ure, that the privilege allowed by us to the Slaves,
within this colony, of publicly and privately Dan-
cing on Estates and other places, at stated periods,
has been perverted by them to purposes of the most
dangerous nature.
We have therefore thought fit, to withdraw. the
permission, for, mercly sanctioned by our different
Ordinances, with regard to the Dancing of Slaves
upon Estates and other places, at certain appointed
times, and to forbid, as We do hereby Forsip and
prohibit, under any pretence whatsoever, ‘*day and
all Dancing, on any E’states, or in any place within
the jurisdiction of this Government, from hence forth
until the year WSS, or until our further pleacure
and licence be made known.”
And we warn and caution all Proprietors, Mana-
gers, and others, having charge of Slaves, to prev-
ent any Dancing on Estates or other places, strictly
forbidding on Estates or other placcea within this co-
ony, all Assemblies for Wakes, Peasts, Pestivals, or
Dancing at Burials, on any pretence whatsoever, on
pain of our severe displeasure, and further of being
rigourously punished.

Sururnbay, Aprit 2, 1814,
As we hive no arrivals this week, we can only furnish
our Readrs with a few abstracts frum those papers we
Gre in possesston of.
The ship I'Vora, from Bermuda, arrived in Demerary
on the 25th March, after a passage of 12 days; and the
sch. Catherine ou the 26th, from the Oronoque, whence
she sated the 20th.—W hereof we learn the follow ing:
The Snap Dragon, American privateer, left the Oro-
noque about the 20th, having repaired the damage she
sustained in the action with the Liverpool.
The Trepsichore French frigate arrived at Bermuda on
the 4th, prize to Ilis Majesty’s ship Mejestic. ‘The Ma-
gestic fell in with the Trepséchore, in company with the
Atalante, another French frigate, on the 2d February,
and captured the furmer, after a chase of a few hours :
she making little or no resistance. She is a very fine
frigate of 44 guns and 320 men; was 23 days out from
POrient The Terpsichore had 2 men killid and 2 wounde
ed, since dead 5 and had his salis and sigging much injured
by the Majestic’s fire durins the chase. Much credit is
duc to Capt. Hayes for the promptitude with which he
bore up to engace three shipsy apparently frigates, anda
brig: and we are fully convinced that had not the crip.
pled state of the Zerpstcnore demanded his undivided at.
tention, which enabled the Alalante to cfiect her escape,
he would have given an equally good account of her. ‘The
other ship in company was supposed to be an Indiaman.
These frigates captured a Spanish vessel from Lima, the
day previous, with specie aad a valuable cargo.
Vice-Admiral Sir Alexander Cochrane, K. B. arrived
at Bermuda on the 4th, in the Asia, 74, and the Superb,
74, in companany.
The Barossa frigate, we are happy to learn, has ar-
rived at Portsinouth, from Jamaica, with half a million
sterling on board.
An Officer, who arrived at Plymouth, States, that Soult
and the Marquis of Wellington have lately had an inter.
view ou a spot of ground between the two armies. ‘The
Officers call it the ‘‘neutral ground.
It was reported, that Bonaparte having ordered Suchet
to evacuate Catalonic with all his force, Suchet, in obe.
dience to his orders, proceeded towards Lyons, which he
hoped to reach before the Allies; but that the latter, re-
ceiving intelligence of his intention, quickned their march
to that city, andenteredit, after some slight opposition.
It is stated, that upon the advance of the Allies into
France, the removal of British prisoners from Biche and
other fortresses, was considered by the French Govern.

change them, man against man,

the Prince of Orange, in his new character of Sovercign of
the Netherlands, has appointed M. Changuion, late Com-
missary General in Holland, Minister Plenipotentiary to
the United States of America, This appointment, we are
informed, has excited much interest among the Dutch, who
cagerly anticipate the benefits to be derived from a renewal
of their commercial intercourse with North America.
It was reported yesterday that 20,000 Cossacks had en-

Copy of a Letter from General M‘Clure, of the Nez-
lork State Troops, tothe Secretary of War.
Head-quarters, Buffalo, Dec. 22, 1813.
Stn—T regret to be under the necessity of announcing
to you the mortifying intelligence of the loss of Fort Nia-
gara. On the morning of the 19th inst. about four o’clock,
tle enemy crossed the river at the Five-mile Meadows in
great force, consisting of regulars and ludians, who made
their way undiscovered to the garrisson, which, from the
most correct information I can collect, was completely
surprised. Our men were nearly all asleep in their tents;
the enemy rushed in, and commenced a most horrid
slaughter. Such as escaped the fury of the first onset, ree.
tired to the old Mess-house, where they kept up.a desy
tructive fire on the enemy, until a waat of ammunitioa
compelled them tuo surrender,—Although our force was
very inferior, and comparatively small indecd, I am in.
duced to think that the disaster is not attributable to any
want of (roops, but to gross neglect in the Commanding
Oilicer of the Fort, Capt. Leonard, in-not preparing,
being ready, and looking out for the expected attack.
[ have not been able to ascertain correctly the number
of killed and wounded. <A British Officer who is taken
prisoners avows that many small children were murdered
by their Indians.
Major Mallory, who was stationed at Schlosser, with
about 40 Canadian yolnntvers, advanced to J.ewiston
Hights, and compelled the advanced guard of the enemy
lo fall back to the foot of the mountain. ‘The Major is
a merilorious Oflicery he fought the enemy two days, and
contested every inch of ground to the Tautawauty creek,
[in these actions Lieut. Lowe, of the 23d regiment of the
United Statesarmy, aud eight of the Canadian volunteers,
were killed, I had myself, three days previous to the
the Niagara, Ieft it with a view of providing
attack on
fue the defence of this place, Black Rock, and the other
Villazes on this fronter.
I came here without troops, and have called out the
miliatia of Gennessec, Niagara, and Chataugue countries
en masse,
This place was then thought to be in imminent danger,
as well as the shipping, but I have no doubt it is now
perfectly secure. Volunteers are coming in, in great
numbers: they are, however, a species of troops that
cannot be expected to continue in service for a long time.
In a few days, 1000 detached militia, lately drafted, will
be ou.—TI have the hononr to be, &e.

Madrid, Jan. 20.—Very curious things are gradually
coming to light, There is now no doubt, that King Ferdi.
nand and the execrable Corsican have made a treaty, It
consists of 15 articles: among whichare the acknowledge.
muent of the King of Spain, in the person of Ierdinand,
by Bonaparte: the evacuation of the Spanish territory
by the French troops within a definitive period, to be fix.
cd by another Convention: the acknowledgment of tlie
independence and integrity of the Spanish dominions by
Bonaparte (does he think he here confers a favour?) -
King Ferdinand will make the English depart from Spain
(here the Corsican discovers the cloven foot; new diugo-
lical projects to excele distrust among Allics occupy his
thoughts) ; the mutual rostitution of prisoners : King
Ferdinand binds himself to demand of england to restore
to this infernal Corsican the prisoners take in Spain; an
obligation to observe the treaty of Utrecht, as far as res-
pects maritim rights: the renewal of the old treaties of
alliance between Spain and France: the restitution of
their property, the revenues, dignities, employments, pen.
sions, &c. to all the Spaniards who declared against their
country by attaching themselves to the blockhead Joseph
View original nd the atrociovrs Bonaparte, and who are now suffering
n France part vf their punishment for the crime of trea-
ion against their country ; so that the circumstance of
heir having been spurious and traitorous Spaniards, and
nost pernicious to their brethren, is not to cause them the
least harm.—Thus far, as to the contents of this famous
treaty, into which we shall not search further at present ;
gut content our selves with saying Spaniards, be upon
your guard! by fraud Bonaparte oyercome us in 1808 ;
by force af arms he could not subdue us in six years of
‘ontest ; by fraud Bonoparte secks to overcome us again.
With this view he means to avail himself of intrigue, se-
luction, plots, passions, and all other infamous means
ingeested by his infernal policy. Humbled so far as now
0 despair of conquering Spain, and to acknowledge the
infortunate Ferdinand for King, he is obliged to look
ibout him for other objects. We already sce him endeav-
uring to embroil us with our Allies, the English ; and
ve shall soon see him (if we apply no remedy) introduce
liscord and disunion among ourselves. We shall see him
end flattering proposals and offers : as he has already sent
he two Spanish emissaries, the Duke of $. Carlos and
Palofox, we shal perhaps see him sent the Infant Don
Antonio, or even Ferdinand himself—perhaps also Char-
es 1V. and Maria Louisa! ‘The workings of fraud and
ntrigue are about to recomence: it would not be at all
xtraordinary were he to send us King Ferdined, the bet-
er to subdue us at his leisure, surrounding him with per-
ons under French influence, who may give him lessons of
lespotism, and lessons of arbitrary government. More
jigilance is necessary now than ever; more perspicacity
‘o free us from the smartes which the insidious tyrant is
laying for us ; more firmness in our resolutions ; aud more
policy to counteract that of the Corsican.
Genrnant Onpers.
Head-Quarters, Montbelliard, Jan 8.
At this moment, when the army is advancing upon the
French territory, LT think it my duty to remind the Com.
nanders of Corps of the orders which preceded that move.
nent, and to enjoin them to redouble their zeal for the
naintenance of order and discipline. They will exact the
ame attention, under a responsibility the most extensive,
‘rom all Cominanders of regiments, battalions, &c. The
roops will make the scourge of war bear as lightly as
yossible upon the inhabitants; ard on no account must
hey exact more Uban the fixed marching allowence. The
onduct and exact discipline of the soldier must fulfil the
vlemn engagement entered into by the Allied Monrchs,
un their Declaration to the French people: and convince
hem that we do not make war upon them, and that we:
trenow in (he midst of them only to conquer peace, and
o enable them to participate in tts blessings. ‘The army,
nh uniting to its well-proved valour the most severe disci.
oline, will fix the admiration of i(s age, and that of gencr-
itions to come,— The Commandants of corps will reneat
o their troops the order that the moot severe punishiict
vill be inflicted on every offender, as due to the honor of
he army which is entrused to my command. They will
Iso every whre announce, that every inhabitant, out of
iniform, taken with arms in his hand, being only to be
onsidered in such case as a malefactor or assussin, shall
io judically condemned as such and punished with death,
—The town, city, or village, the inhabitants of which
hal! oppose any resistance, and commit any acts of hos-
ify, shall be razed, and reduced to ashes.
[renchmen '—Sufier not yourselves to be deceived by
salumnious reports, disseminated by malvolenee. Behold
M@he armies of Allicd Suvercigns only the armies of hu-
manity, who have no other encmies but the enemies of
yeace. Your rclatives, your friends, your brothers, your
hifdren, prisoners in a forcign land, unite their wishes
with ours for peace; the first benefit of which to them
will be, their speedy return to the bossom of their families.

Head-quariers, at hiel, January 17, 1814.
The peace of Denmark with Sweden and England was
signed on the 4th of January. On Sunday the 16th, there
was a grand parade, a solemn 7¢ Deum was chaunted by
View original way of thanksgiving, and numerous salutes of artillery
were fired. The treaty has becn sent to his Majesty the
King of Denmark, and the ratification is expected by
Wednesday next. The whole army is putting ilself in
march for the Rhine. There is no longer any rivalship
among the nations of the North ; they hive acknowledged
that they have the same interests. United for the noblest:
object, they will combat together for the liberty of the
continent, the independence of sovereigns, and of nations.
The nations of the North do not look upon the French
as enemies ; they recognise no other encmy but him who
has done every thing to prevent their union: him who, it
cannot be too often repeated, has wished to enslave all
nations, and to ravish from all their country.
Povtaire, who, with his coadjutors d’ Alembert, Diderot,
and overs, did all they could to bring about a revolution
in France, is well known (o have prophesied that event:
and his jrophesy, published about24 ycars before, is dat-
ed April?,1764. It runs thus:
‘Whatver IL behold, is sowing the seeds of a revolution
which willinfallibly arrive, but which I shall not have
the pleasure to witness. The I'rench arrive at every thing
by slow degwees: but at length they do arrive. Light is

that on the frst occasion they will break out, and then
there will be i fine dumulf. Young people are fortunate,
for they will se charming things!”
Now, Sir,’ as] do not wish to deprive Voltaire, who was
long the idol, na only of the French, but of all lrenchi-
fied Englishmen, of the honours of a Prophet, instead of
remarking that hs fine dumulé and his charming things
consisted only-o massacres, followed by tyranny and
slavery, 1 beg leave to propose that this nole of hand of
his, which he cerainly could not pay when due, be re-
newed, and the dte altered from 1758-9 ty 1814; and
then we may say,with him, that ‘*Young people are for-
tunate, for they vill see charming things.”

Paris, Jan. 26.—To-day her Majesty the Empres:
Queen and Ktegent received in the usual manner, a Depu.

Marshal the Duke of Conegliano, speaking in the nam:
of the Deputation, presented to her Majesty the follow.
ing Address :—
‘SMAvame,—His Majesty the Emperor and King ha:
deigned to permit that his faithful subjects; the Officers o)
the National Guards of his good city of Paris, shoulc
place at the foot of the throne, the homage of their love
aud fidelity.
‘‘It is thus, Madame, that they have endeavoured te
express them :—
‘*Sine,—In setting out to place yourself at the heat
of your enemics, your Najesty confides your beloved wil
and son, the hope of the nation, and places the safety, th.
tranquility of the capital, in our laye, our fidelity, an
our courage,
**Sirc, yournoble sentiments have penetrated to the bot.

could have been equally heard at the extremities of france
‘still full of emotions and penetrated with: gratitude
we find it requisite to express to your Majesty the seuti.

‘Ing the fate of what you have, or what we have, mos
dear, trouble your great thoughts ; go with our children
and our Prethren to repulse the coalesced encinies who ari
ravaging our provinces,
**By the strength of yourarmics, and the power of you
genius, we will unite the force of the public spirit, whic
(he dangers of the country re-animate, the power of th
national pride, which is indignant atthe insolent pride o
Strangers ; and quickly will the enemy acknowledge the im
prucence of their enterprises, and the illusion of their hopes
‘Sire, Fifteen years ago you saved France. You wil
nOW Save it again.

‘*I’rance entire shall have for its rallying cry, Delivranc
du Teri tlotre.
‘sin vain, Sire, have the enemy conceived the injuriou
hope of dividing the nation. ‘lo the hatred and animosit
with which the fear of your genius luspires them, you
faitaful subjects will oppose their love and contidence
which the vicissitudes of fortune have not destroyed,
