TO BE SOLD, [heading]
ON REASONABLE TERMS FOR CASH, [heading]
An excellent Creole negro Man Cook, a
good Sawyer Negro (without Faults), and a Mulatto House Boy, also the House and
Full Lot, No. 233, situated in Cumingsburg, on the main Road from the Block
House, now occupied by Mrs. Thornton; an elegant Phaeton, with Harness
complete, newly arrived from London; and a remarkably strong built Punt, of 30
feet keel. Apply to
Kingston, Oct. 4, 1806. Wm. Latham.
We are happy to state that the
apprehensions entertained for the safety of the mail, were ill founded. It at
length reached this port in the Reasonable, Capt. Carter, late on Thursday
evening, after a most unreasonable passage of 17 days, part of which she was
becalmed off Oronoko. The Post Office was crowded at an early hour the next
morning; every person being of course extremely solicitous for his papers. The
calm which Captain Carter experienced, however, very much ruffled the
countenances of many, particularly those who (from having betted a trifle,
perhaps,) and from the long delay, concluded that both the August mails must
have come, and therefore expected to receive the terms of Peace, already cut
and dried to their hands. In short, the letters and papers are of no later
date than we were before in possession of from the kindness of friends; but,
having now received them regular, we have been enabled to select many things
which we could not before notice. Mr. Williams, naturally imagining the
inhabitants of Berbice would be equally anxious, dispatched a messenger with
the letters there the same day.
His Majesty's Brig Demerara, Capt.
Patterson, put into Berbice on Sunday evening last, after a cruise to windward,
whence she again sailed on Tuesday, and arrived here on Thursday morning.
Capt. Patterson brings advice of a most gallant action having been fought, a
few days ago, to windward of Surinam, between his Majesty's gun-brig the
Swinger, of 14 eighteen-pounders, and a French frigate of 36 guns. The very
superior force of the enemy was not discovered till there was not alternative
but to fight or run ashore; on which the captain consulted his officers, when
every man nobly determined to fight. The action accordingly soon commenced
with great spirit on both sides; and, in the end, the tight little true heart
of oak completely bear the Frenchman off. The gun brig, as may be expected, is
very much cut up in her rigging, &c. and has some men killed and wounded;
but we are not yet in possession of minute particulars.
The Howe brig, Capt. Lusk, one of the
London Fleet, laden principally with Government stores, arrived on Wednesday
evening. She parted from the fleet 10 days before, in the latitude of
Barbados. There were three more for this port, viz. the Hawkesbury, Paxton,
and Jane, and there are three vessels now off the Bar, supposed to be them.
