TUESDAY, OCTOBER '29, 180i.
From Washington, October 17. ,
! We understand, that on, the fifteenth .of
August, Mr. Munroe, our minister at Lon
dun, lutd an iuterview with lord Mulgrave,
the 3rjush Secretary of State for foreign
AflVu s, on the subject of the recent captures,
when U appeared that ho " tie w -Older had
been iiiueel, biit vhattljey proceeded iVom the
decisiens JcenQy" jiud in, the hifch court of
appeals, subjecting the trade between Euro
pean hostile countries and their colonies
through a neutral state to a inuch narrower
rule than, had beea before contemplated.
At this iniei view ihe subject was not dis
cussed in detail between .Mr. Munroe and
theminisUr, but the'IuUer. assured 'him that
there was nothing in the disposition of his
g.)enviiK:nt which would admit of an un-irien;Hj-
tftcasui'e against the U. States.
Another conference having; been lxqnest
edby Mr. Munroe, fof the purpose of enter
ing more fully into the affair, it remains to be
seen what will be the issue of this impolUnt
We learn from Port-au-Prince, thitthe
Pritish have actually got possession of Cape
NicholaMole, where they have landed ljoo
trbops and had layinor off the harboxir two fri
gates and a kmaller vcsstN Ami we also (
learn, that great jealousies subsist between
me macKS ann iiuiauoc 01 uic new tn.j.n., j
k that an insurrection iscmsulei cu at no dis
tant period. Theie was a well grounded
opinion that Ckristophe, would, ere long,
become Emperor, as DessalmeV popularity
was daily declining, and that of Christop'.ie
increasing. That sou.e important change
is about to take place in this quarter, is very
evidcn;how, or in what manner, perma
nent tranquility is to be established, is dif-.
ficult to loresee. The probabilitj is, that
the whole Island will soon b: again under
the government of some European power.
The report of the death nf Dessalines, Em-'
pcror of tlayti, prove to be untrue.
