GENERAL ORDERS. [heading]
Major Arthur Blair, Commandant of the
Demerary Cavalry, having declared to His Excellency the governor, that he would
not in all points obey the Orders of the Lieutenant-Colonel Commandant of all
Colonial Corps, although this was specified in the Commission given him by the
Governor, His Excellency cannot permit so palpable a disobedience of Orders,
and therefore feels himself under the necessity of superseding Major A. Blair
in his Rank and Command of the Demerary Cavalry.
The Governor regrets exceedingly, that
such a measure, however unavoidable, should be required for the good of the
service. He will at the same time feel happy to give to the Officer on whom
the Command now devolves, every necessary support, for the respectability and
discipline of the Corps.

Demerary den 24 April 1806. J. H.

The Gentlemen composing the Corps of the
Royal Demerary Cavalry met this day at the New Union Coffee House, to take into
consideration the General Orders inserted in our First Page, when they
unanimously agreed to send in their resignations to Major A. Blair, their late
Commandant. Some well-written Resolutions, expressive of their reasons for so
doing, and their attachment to the Major, to whom they also voted a Sword of
One Hundred Guineas value, were entered into, and signed by all present.
The intended inspection of the Militia
by His Excellency Brigadier General Montgomerie, did not take place last
Wednesday, on account of the rain.
The purpose for which the Militia were
ordered out last Sunday morning, was to assist in the apprehension of Runaway
and Bush Negroes; a number of whom, there was every reason to suppose, made a
practice of coming into town on a Sunday. The object was, to surround the
Market place with the Militia, and guard the avenues with Regulars, while the
Dienaars did their duty inside. The plan was well conceived, and deserving of
more success than it met with. After the business began, it was executed with
spirit. The Lieutenant-Colonel Commandant Macrae, Major Macrae, Adjutant
Brandt, &c. were all on the alert; and such was the exertion used, that
every Male negro, who could not produce a satisfactory pass, was presently
taken, and placed under a guard till owned by his Master. We believe, however,
that those whom it was most desirable to secure, were all off before the
operations commenced. Perhaps, on this peculiar occasion, a little less
previous parade would have been productive of more benefits to the Dienaars, at
any rate, should have been kept back till the moment of action.
The Surinam ships arrived off the mouth
of this River on Thursday last, and the whole Fleet sailed on Friday.
The Paragon, Capt. Hart, one of the
fleet from Berbice for Liverpool, came up this River and anchored off the
Government Stelling on Sunday evening last, to refit, having lost her rudder
irons, &c. in going over the Bar. The mother of J. T. Mathews, Esq. LL.D.
and the relict of H. Glasier Esq. are passengers on board this ship.
Three French frigates are said to have
lately sailed from Cayenne; some think, to look after Miranda.
ST. GEORGE'S DAY. [heading]
A grand Ball and Supper were given at
the New Union Coffee House on Wednesday last, in honour of the day. The
weather was extremely inauspicious, notwithstanding which, however, about 200
persons were present. The following Gentlemen undertook the management:
[a middle column, but below]
W. N. Firebrace;
and it is but justice to say, that every
assistance was afforded, and every possible attention paid, by Mr. Campbell.
After supper the undermentioned toasts were circulated, T. Jackson, Esq. in the
Chair, Wm. Brumell, Esq. Vice-President:
The Queen and Royal Family.
The Army and Navy.
The Governor and Colonies.
The Sons of St. Andrew.
The Sons of St. Patrick.
The Memory of Mr. Crafts.
The Dancing was then renewed, and
continued till about four in the morning, when the Ladies retired; after which
the glass went briskly round and several good songs were sung, though we cannot
praise the general harmony. Our readers must excuse us for not giving a more
particular account of this Meeting.
