From the Barbadas Mercury, Spt. 3.
The good thing which our kind neighbours of the Sis-
ter Islands have siut us in this our tine of dire necessity,
have continued to pour in upon us front Tuesday after-
noon last to the present momeint-no less than si vessels
having anrived from various places, vi. brig Beaver, from
Trinidad, with flour, bread, rice, meal, and pease ; b igan-
tines Eight Sons, Berbice, planains, flour, beef, pork,
and pease; Mary Ann, Berlire, 3,675 bunches plan-
tains; clhoonurs Agnes, Trinilad, provisions; John,
Denl.rara, plantains, sloop Antelope, Dmuinica, coffee
and vams.
In addition to the present of provisions already received
from Grenada, it will be sen by the annexed article ex-
tracted from the Grenada Free Press, that the inhabi-
Ianns of that island are about to relieve our wants more
Tffctually, by sending is a supply of luniber-an article
of great scarcity with u at the present time. There are,
we have no doubt, many poor houseless creatures, wlho
woliil be ntlsfied to starve two or three days together in
each week, with tim prospect of having a roof over their
Ihadsl in culniiiiaiimion of fuod-and such being the case,
the article of litiuhir would bJ equally acceptable in its
turn, if not preferable to any other. Such however is our
hapless and deplorable condition, and such has been the
unbounded liberality ad extensive benevolence of our
friends novr the w .moaelh w e a almost restrained
fron offering any opinion on the subject, under a convic-
lion that they lave acted from the best motives, and been
inlluenced by tho kindest conideralon. Should it please
Ilheavei to save ua from serious sickness or contagious
disorder, and not add those alictions to the catalogue of
our calamitlse-we cay confident look forward to the
future with some hope of recovering gradually from our
present distressed situation-whilst we cannot but lie
thankful to a kind Providence, who has watched over
and not deserted u in the midst of our present sufferings :
