We are Concerned to learn that the ship
George, Capt. Williams, which sailed from this port for London on the 18th of
March, was taken on the 1st of April, close under St. Lucia, by a schooner of
one gun and 29 men, and carried into Martinique. The George mounted 18 guns,
and is stated in the account which has reached us, to have had 32 men, who,
when landed at Martinique, were hooted at with much indignation for their
non-resistance to so insignificant a force. We regret to add, that Mr. Klyne,
a Gentleman well known in the Colony, was unfortunately a passenger on board
this ship. Many people have taken it into their heads that the Attorney at Law
H. Cantzlaar, Esq. J.Z. had also taken his passage in the George; we believe,
however, it will be found that he went in the Queen, Capt. Bond.

LIEUTENANT-COLONEL MACRAE. [heading]
On Tuesday, the 29th ult. died, Farquhar
Macrae, Esq. Captain in the late 11th West India Regiment, and
Lieutenant-Colonel Commandant of all Colonial Corps; a man highly respected for
his private worth, and whose loss must be considered as a public calamity. The
cause of this lamentable event is said to have been a wound received in the
adjustment of an affair of honour with A. Blair, Esq. late Major Commandant of
the Royal Demerary Cavalry. In consequence of a difference originating with
the Lieutenant-Colonel's late appointment, and increased by the subject being
improperly permitted to be agitated at the Meeting of the Sons of St. George on
the preceeding [sic] Wednesday, the parties are stated to have met last Sunday
morning, near the Plantation La Pentience, and to have exchanged shots, at
twelve paces distance, when Lieutenant-Colonel Macrae fell at the first fire,
having received his opponent's ball a little above the right hip. Every
possible assistance was immediately afforded; and, to insure the attention and
care which his situation demanded, he was taken to the hospitable and friendly
mansion of the Hon. A. Meertens. The wound was not at first thought to be
dangerous; but the following morning it assumed an unfavourable aspect, and it
was soon known that he could not survive. In this most trying situation, his
manly conduct evinced, in the strongest light, the high sense he entertained of
that honour, to the vindication of which, according to the fatal but imperious
laws of established custom, he was then falling a martyr. Although repeatedly
and earnestly pressed to say who had inflicted the wound under which he was
suffering, he firmly resisted, declaring that he received it in an honourable
way, and that nothing should induce him to name the party. He continued to
hold the same generous sentiments till about one o'clock on Tuesday, when, to
the extreme sorrow of his friends, and infinite regret of the Whole Colony,
"His noble spirit sought the
