      PORTSMOUTH, APRIL 3.- The order which was given for vessels bound to the
      Mediterranean not to wait for convoy has been rescinded, and such are now
      directed to assemble at Falmouth for that protection. It is presumed, therefore,
      that other unfavourable circumstances in the affair with Algiers has since
      arisen.
      Commodore Ballen is gone out to the coast of Africa with extended
      instructions for the suppression of the Slave Trade, founded upon that admirable
      measure introduced by Mr. Canning, by which Captains carrying Slaves are
      declared Pirates, and are liable to suffer capital punishment.
      Two companies of the 3d R.V. battalion have arrived at Jersey from Cork. On
      the arrival of the remainder of that corps from Cork, the 72d will proceed to
      Plymouth for the purpose of relieving the 61st, which is ordered to Ireland.
      The detachments of the 3d Dragoon Guards, which recently proceeded to
      Liverpool, are, we understand, ordered back to Manchester.
