A Very Convenient House, situate on Werk

Although the Duke of Kent packet, with
the first August [illegible] reached Barbados the 11th inst. no mail-boat has
yet reached here; there is therefore much reason to fear that she is taken.
A schooner privateer is off this harbour
on Sunday evening, it was hardy enough to come close in, and make a signal for
a pilot, when a boat with three negroes was sent on board; the enemy, however,
did not detain them. On the mistake being discovered, the Skipjack and
Affiance stood out for her, but without success.
His Majesty's brig Demerara, Capt.
Patterson, which arrived here on Tuesday, fell in with a privateer, supposed to
be the above; but she could do nothing with her, owing to her great superiority
in sailing. The Demerara again went out on Wednesday evening.
The Court of Rolls and Commissary Court
of Essequebo and Demerary will meet on Monday the 6th of October; and on
Wednesday the 8th of October there will be a meeting of the Board of the Orphan
The sailing of the homeward merchant
fleet is, we understand, postponed for a month, in consequence of the
intelligence brought by Capt. Patterson.
The following Promotions and
Appointments have taken place this week in the 1st Battalion of the Demerary
Lieut. I. T. Mathews to be Captain, vice
Lieut. James Robertson to be Captain,
vice M'Leod, resigned.
John Johnson, Gent. to be Lieutenant,
vice De Veer, promoted.
Robert Bell, Gent. to be Lieutenant,
vice Naghton, promoted.
Jos. Bergh, Gent. to be Lieutenant, vice
We understand that a Building of triple
utility is about to be erected where the old Government House formerly stood.
The centre is to be a tower, whereon will be placed a clock, and on one side
will be a guard-house, on the other an armoury. We are not in possession of
the plan, and therefore cannot state it correctly; but the above, we believe,
are the purposes the intended building is meant to answer.
On Sunday last died Thos. Milbourn, Esq.
one of the oldest inhabitants in Town. He was buried with military honours the
next morning in Werk & Rust; the Light Company of the Militia (to which the
deceased belonged), and about 40 other respectable Gentlemen, attending.
Suicide - Yesterday morning a Negro was
discovered hanging on a tree in the Middle Walk of Plantation Vlissingen. He
was a yellow skinned young negro, apparently a house-boy, about 5 feet 3 inches
in height, slim made, and, from the marks on his temples, presumed to be of the
Ebo nation. The poor devil had rigged himself out for his exit, in, no doubt,
his best clothes; having on a new white shirt, new red and black striped
woollen [sic] pantaloons, patent spring slings (braces, suspenders, or
gallowses), a purple and white checked cotton waistcoat, and a Madras red silk
handkerchief, with white spots, round his neck. The owner of this infatuated
wretch is at present unknown; but any person missing a negro of the above
description, may see the clothes by applying at the before-mentioned estate.
We have heard that it is customary in
some Colonies to cut off the head of any negro making away with himself, and
fix it on a post, as an example to others; and this mode appears to us very
eligible; for, however they may wish to revive in their native country (a
mistaken notion of the possibility of which is supposed to influence them), we
apprehend the idea of returning without a head would greatly check, if not
completely dissipate, this foolish delusion.
