The Proprietor of this Paper (N.
Volkerts) was very much surprised to find a publication in circulation on
Monday last, with his Title and his Number affixed thereto, printed by Mr.
Henery, evidently with a view to mislead the Public, by imposing a new paper on
them for the old-established Essequebo and Demerary Gazette. On what grounds
Mr. H. has ventured on such an unprecedented proceeding, Mr. V. is at a loss to
discover. This Paper ever was, and still remains, bona fide, the sole property
of N. Volkerts - the contract between the parties, which was annulled last week
by mutual consent, stipulated that Mr. H. should receive half the profits of the
paper, for his trouble in managing it, not half the property - Mr. H. must,
therefore, have been very ill-advised, when he was tempted so much to infringe
on that property, as to take its Title and Number. What excuse he can make for
such conduct, remains to be seen; Mr. V. has applied to that sacred guardian of
all property, the Law, for redress, but he thinks it proper, in the mean time,
publickly to state thus much, that the respectable inhabitants of these
Colonies, who have hitherto honoured his Paper with their countenance and
support, may not be deceived by any artifices of this nature.
As N. Volkerts is making the proper
arrangements for obtaining intelligence from all quarters, he trusts that the
Essequebo and Demerary Gazette will now be found to improve in interest and
amusement every week. Advertisements for each weeks' paper are taken in till
Nine o'Clock on Saturday, the Morning of Publication, at the Printing-Office,
No. 20, Brick Dam, where Subscriptions, at 33 guilders per ann. continue to be
received, and where also Advertisements and Subscriptions are taken for the
Berbice Gazette, which is delivered every Monday morning.
Stabroek, Saturday, January 11, 1806.
The spring tides have been higher this
week than for many years past. On Plantation Vlissingen, much damage has been
sustained; and several Plantations on the West Bank were entirely under water.
The body of a white man was washed
ashore last week on Plantation Flinsburg. A man of the name of Meurs, formerly
a Gunner in the Orange Battalion, having been missing for some time, there is
reason to suppose that this was his body. It was decently interred on the
Four Bush Negroes were last week taken
in the Negro-houses of Jonas Fileen, Esq. at Plantation Couvoerden, and safely
lodged in the Barracks.
On Wednesday last, was sent to town, by
I. C. Gehericke [sic], Esq. a white madman, to all appearance a sailor, found
on his Plantation Groote Dyamant. On being taken before the Fiscal, he began
to dance, and utter the most incoherent expressions. He was sent to the Colony

The 8th inst. at his Plantation Vrees-en
Hoop, R. Ferrier, Esq. aged 29 years and six months. A man, every action of
whose life, and every thought of whose mind, tended to the benefit of his
fellow creatures; in the pursuit of which object, and in rendering a most
essential service to one, he met a return which his liberal mind could not have
apprehended possible to have consisted even with the worst stage of human
depravity. Unexpectedly, a persecution was excited, under which his mild,
generous, and beneficent spirit, unused and unequal to such a contention, to
the regret of every good man, sunk at once, and sought that Heaven to which his
own virtues so manifestly tended, and where he enjoys a repose, which Christian
Charity induces a hope, may, through the unbounded mercy of the Almighty, aided
by their sincere and deep repentance, be extended even to the enemies and
persecutors of such a man as he was.
The 3d inst. Dr. Charles Whitehead.
