Tue Licufenant-Governor having been honored
with the Lettes from His Excellency Sir Jas. Leith,
and ifs inclosures, has desired us to insert them for
the information of the Ladies of Berbice.
On perusal of these papers, His Excellency expe-
riences his inability to add any remarks that can pos-
sibly conduce to the proposed Honorable underta-
king ; and he therefore felicitates inthe consciousness
that the Ladies of Berbice will not suffer his solici-
tations for their aid in the furtherance of the propo-

I HAVE the honor to transmit herewith, an
Extract of a Letter which ] have received from the
Countess Spencer, one of the Ladies Directresses,
who have associated themsclves for the purpose of
erecting by Subscription of the Ladies of the British
Monarchy, a Monument tocomiemorate tlic Services
of the Duke of Wellington.
[ beg leave to Solicit your Aid in applying to
the Ladies of Berbice, in Order to turward the pro-
posed Plan.
A Cause, of which the Merils are so universally
known, and now brought forward under such Aspices,
does not require that [ should make any further Re-
marks, I therefore take the Liberty of enclosing the
Prospectus, with a Subscription Paper for the Signa-
tures of sach Ladies as may be pleased to forward a
Plan equally calculated to prove a lasting and dis-
tinguished Memorial of the bo rvices ofan Illustrious
Man, as of the Pnblic Spirit, Generosity and Taste of
the Women ofthe British Empire.
I would beg being honored by an Answer as
soon as may be convenient, and to have the Subscrip-
tion Paper returned to me, with a Specification of the
Manner in which such Sums as may be put down, are
to be remitted to Europe.—] have the honor to be,

Extract of a Letter from the Countess Spencr,
one of the Ladies Directresses, to Lieut.-
General Sir James Leith.
“OTHE Ladies of Great Brituin and Ireland are
very desirous of perpetuating their Sense of what they
Owe to the Valour and Tallents of the DUKE OF
W ELLINGTON, by a Monument of a more lasting
kind than a Dinner, a Masquerade, or a Fete, 2nd
they have accordingly determined, to arise one, which
does credit to their Gratitude and good taste. The
Subscription to this end is rapidly filling, and altho’
the expence of so noble an undertaking will be large,
yet we think the means will be adequate to the de-
mands. But for this purpose we hope to be assisted
by every one who feels as we do a strong desire of
testifying in a splendid and beautiful shape, the warm
Gratitude which the Duke of Wellington and_ his
brave Companions in Arms have excited inour Minds.
And it is to obtain the assistance and co-operation of
the Ladies in your part of the World that I address
mysclf to you during the absence of Lady Augusta
‘*Will you have the goodness to persuade some of
the principal Women within your reach to become
active Supporters of this interesting Memorial ? The
eager manner with which it has been reccived in this
Country givesme the hest hopes that its Success will
be equally certain in every quarter of the World,
where English- Women are established, and where

Bridge- Town, January 7, 1815.
AT noon yesterday, His Majesty’s ship Barossa
arrived from Antigua ; and if was soon in circulation,
that she was the bearer of the highly gratifying intel-
ligence that the British forces under the command of
Lieut.-General Drummond had compelled the enemy
to surrender Sacket’s Harbour, some time about the.
24th November, and, by a simultaneous attack, our.
squadron had been equally successful, Sir James Yeo
having taken the whole of that Flotilla ; and also that
Commadore Chauncy, who defended his vessels with
great gallantry, was killed during the action. These
accounts, it was said, had been derived fron an Ame-:
rican paper of the 7th December, which was taken
from on board the Gallant Hull, one of two schooners
that were chased by the Barossaand Barbados brig,
but the other got into St. Bertholomew. They had
been but twelve days from Baltimore when the for-
mer was captured, and sent to St. Thomas. It is to
be regretted, that this paper was inadvertently des-
troyed on board tne Barossa; because, from what
we have since heard, some doubts have arisen with
respect to the accuracy of this information.
View original Yt fs, however; satisfactory, that we are thus ace
quainted with the recent capture of the American ship
of war Wasp, by the Casti/ian British brig of 18 guns,
which, if is reported, fellin with the enemy whilst
cruising off Madeira, and took possession of the Wasp
by boarding.
Through this channal, too, it is learnt, the United
States are in the greatest commotion in consequence
of the Conscription Bill, which has been passed by
Congress, and authorises the arming of 80,000 men,
fo complete which each State to furnish its quota.
This has been objected to by the Northern States, and
they do not hesitate to declare, that they will not come
ply with the requisition ; so that, connecting this with
those Resolution which are likely to be adopted by
the New-England Convention, a disunion may, in all
probability, be the result of this measure on the part
of that Government.
On the 24th December, in the night, the Barossa
fell in with a Spanish vessel of war, which mistaking
her for an armed ship belonging to the Insurgents on
tte Main, fired ‘nto the Barossa, and, we are sorry
to add, killed two men, and did some injury to the
ship. Upon receiving a few shots from our frigate,
the Spaniard discovered bis error, and will no doubt
in future be more cautious.
A private letter recently received from Halifax,
states, as a rumour, that the American line-of-battle
ship Independence, with acompletement of 1000 men;
and the frigate Constitution, had sailed in company
from one of the ports of the United States.
A letter from St. ‘Thomas, recently received here,
‘states, th: t the American ship of war Independence,
was seen Cruising in the neighboorhood of St. Du
Pori-Rovayu (MARTINIQUE), Ist Dec. 1814.
The Meduse frigate, commanded by Captain de
Chesfontaines, arrived at this port yesterday evening,
having on board M. du Buc. About the 9th of last
month, she parted from the 2d division, which is ex
pected every moment.
Sr. Pierre, 3d Dec. 1814.
Ceremony of taking possion of the Town of St.
Pierre and its Jurisdictions.
At day-light yesterday morning, the French frigate
Frigone, with troops on board from Fort-Royal, ap-
peared offthe harbour. Between nine and (cno’clok,
she anchored, and fired a saiute to the ba(teries, which
was returned.—About one o’clock, the British 74
_gun ship Venerable also appered, having on board
Rear-Admiral, Naval Commander on this Station;
Sir James Leith, Commander in Chief of the Land
Forces; Major-General Lindsey, Governor of th's
Island and several other officers of rank. Whilst une
der sail, she fired a salute, which was returned by the
batteries; and she came to anchor about half-past
‘three. M.du Buc, M. le Baron de Labarthe, and
.M. de Perinelle, had previous arrived from Forte
Royal. The change of Flag was announced by a
general and brisk firing, both from the batleries and
the frigate, which began a little before five, and was
continued till near sun sect. The French troops,
whose march was interrupted by an immense crowd
of people, moved to occupy the post of the battery
D’Esnotz, amidst repeated shouts of * Vive le Roi!’’
from the spectators.—In the mcan time, Sir James
Leith, surrounded by the General Officers and the
respective Authorities of the two Nations, arrived at
the battery, wishing to deliver up the post himself.
The restoration was made with great pomp and so-
lemnity, accompanied on both sides with all that ur-
banity, attention, and frank cordiality, which the
Governments of States in amity reciprocally owe to
each other—Afler this striking ceremony, His Exccl-
lency the Commander in Chief repaired to Govern-
ment House, where he gave a most splendid enters
tainment to his Suite, and a large party of guests ine
viled on the occasivn,
