Essequebo and Demerary Gazette 1806 March 08
Secretary's Office. This is to inform
the Public, that the following Persons intend quitting this Colony:
Picked up, in front of Plantation Best,
A Copper Bottomed Boat, with two Masts, &c.; about 26 feet long, and 7 feet
wide. The Owner can have her by paying the expences. Apply to the Manager.
A Few Coffee Casks for Sale by the
Subscriber, for payment in Cash or Coffee; or to be delivered at cost price to
any person to whom he owes money.
The Subscriber intending to leave this
Colony as soon as possible, offers for private sale his house and land,
situated on the Middle Dam, Stabroek, known as No. 48, in which he at present
resides, with all the outbuildings thereon: consisting of a good Dwelling
House, Outhouses, and a small counting house on pillars, all in complete order;
also 5 Negroes, amongst whom are a complete washerwoman, and a good stable boy
- the others are all grass cutters; likewise three Horses - an excellent Chaise
and two Saddle Horses. Further, he solicits once more all those who are
indebted to him, to come forward with payment before the last of March,
otherwise all accounts not paid by that time he will lodge in the hands of the
Attorney-at-Law Fleischman, as no longer indulgence can be given.
By Permission of His Excellency the
Governor, the Subscribers will expose for sale at Bourdeau's Logie, on Saturday
next, the 22d instant, under licence.
Notice. The Subscriber will give Four
Joes Reward (exclusive of the Colony Allowance) to any Person who will
apprehend and lodge in the Barracks a Negro Woman belonging to him, named
Lamon, a Creole of Barbados, with her boy child called Charles. She is too
well known in this Colony to require any further description, and is supposed
to be harboured on the West Coast of this river, at or about the Plantation
Best, belonging to Joseph Beete, senior, Esq. where she has a husband. She has
been seen frequently on that plantation; and from the repeated offers of the
Proprietor to purchase her below her value, the Subscriber has reason to
suppose she is encouraged. If she will return of her own accord she shall be
pardoned, although absent upwards of six months; and should she be still withheld
from him, he will be under the necessity of publishing such documents as will
justify his claim to suspicion.
N. Volkerts respectfully informs the
Merchants, &c. of this Colony, that having just printed a large quantity of
Bills of Exchange, Bills of Lading, and Window Bills; any number of them may
now be had on reasonable terms, by applying at the Office of this Paper, No.
20, Brick Dam, where ready made Pens, Ink powder, and Paper of all qualities
are also for sale. - Likewise a few remaining almanacs for the current year.
[Volkerts ad for Flinsburg]
The Printer having been imposed upon several times, by boys coming to fetch papers for persons whose names they had no right to use, requests, that in future all Subscribers, when they send for their Newspapers, will have the goodness to write their Names on a scrap of paper. Four o'clock is the hour of publishing.
