It will be perceived, that, to prevent
any of our Advertising Friends from being disappointed, we have this week again
given a double paper. It will always be our pleasing study to afford theme
every accommodation and, in order to do that more effectually, without
abridging our News Department, we crave their attention and acquiescence to the
it has been the custom here, since the
first establishment of a newspaper, to insert all the Advertisements three
times, unless otherwise especially ordered, we still mean to adhere to that
practice. From the unprecedented and still rapidly increasing circulation of
this paper, however, we find, that, in many instances, the purposes of an
Advertisement are now better answered by its appearing once, than they were
formerly by the triple insertion. This fact has bee communicated to us by
several gentlemen, who, experiencing that to be the case, have kindly informed
us, and thereby saved us the mortification of filling our columns with useless
articles, we have therefore to solicit, that all, who may be alike quickly
benefited by sending their Advertisements to The Essequebo and Demerary
Gazette, will have the goodness to communicate to same, and, by so doing,
afford us room for the further gratification both of themselves and others, by
the insertion of more interesting information.
Advertisements continue to be taken in
till Nine o'Clock on the Morning of Publication.
Hints or Communications on subjects of
General Utility, or at all conducive to the Prosperity of the Colonies, and the
comfort of the Inhabitants, will be thankfully received, and inserted free of
Expence, addressed to the Printer.
The Court of Rolls, the Commissary Court
of Essequebo and Demerary, and Court of Justice of Essequebo, will meet on
Monday next; and on Wednesday, there will be a Board of the Orphan Chamber.
For Sale, by the Undersigned, Manager of
Plantation Zorg en Hoop, at reasonable prices:
