On commencing a new Year, under new
circumstances, and with new hopes of success, we cannot allow this paper to go
forth, without endeavouring to express our grateful sense of old favours, and
heartily wishing all our Subscribers, both old and new, according to the old
English phrase, "many - many happy returns of the season."
One twelvemonth only has elapsed, since
the conduct of this paper was entrusted to the care of its present proprietors;
and it has succeeded, notwithstanding the disadvantageous circumstances under
which it at first laboured, beyond the most sanguine expectations. The
Printers do not mean by this assertion to arrogate any extraordinary merit. It
is only mentioned as a proof of the generally liberal encouragement afforded;
to shew that they are not insensible of the numerous obligations conferred by
the enlightened part of the community; and as a pledge that no expence or
labour will in future be spared to render this paper deserving of a continuance
of that countenance and support which it has already so bountifully received.
To our Advertising Friends we further
beg leave to observe, that, exclusive of upwards of 30 papers, which are
circulated in Berbice, and those up the River and in Essequebo, amounting to
nearly the same number, we have now established a regular communication up the
Coast; so that there is scarcely a plantation between this and Mahaiconi, where
our paper will not be seen on the Sunday. The [illegible] advantages resulting
to Merchant and others advertising, as well as to ourselves, from this
arrangement, are too obvious to need any elucidation.
On Monday last a Meeting was held at Mr.
Campbell's Tavern, to consider of the consequences likely to result to these
Colonies from the alterations made in the intercourse with America by the late
Proclamation, when several respectable Planters and Merchants attended, and it
was agreed to petition His Excellency the Governor for an Extension of Time for
the Exportation of Sugar and Importation of Beef and Pork, as well as of Pitch
and Tar, till the situation of the Colony could be represented at home. A
Petition to this effect was accordingly draw up, and approved of; one copy of
which was left for signature at Mr. Campbell's, and others were sent to
different quarters of the Colony for the same purpose. The Petition is to be
presented to His Excellency on Wednesday next, the 7th inst.
Bush Negroes. - It gives us pleasure to
have to state that thirteen of these misguided people came in on Tuesday, under
the amnesty which we understand was promised them by His Excellency the
governor. The following is, we believe, a correct list of the owners, to whom
they have been restored:
Three (2 men and 1 woman) belonging to
R. B. Daly, Esq. One of these men, a creole, was formerly a driver, and,
during his absence, had been created by his brethren in iniquity a King or
Chief of what they call their camp. Yet even this man, though invested with
such lordly power, and of course enjoying whatever luxuries his subjects could
afford, preferred to return under the dominion of his legal master, on being
assured by his maty, who had been sent for the purpose, that his forfeited life
would be spared. His influence with the others, however, in point of
reasoning, did not extend so far as could have been wished.
Three (1 man and 2 women) belonging to
One (a man) belonging to Mr. King.
One (a woman) belonging to Miss Betsey
One (a man) belonging to Plantation
One (a woman with her female child born
in the Bush) belonging to Plantation Velzerhoofd.
One (a man) belonging to M. Smit, Esq.
One (a man) belonging to Doctor Cramer.
One (a man) not owned, who says he
belongs to the foreground of Werk & Rust.
Making the whole 8 men and 5 women.
Eighteen more, we understand, are
remainder of these deluded wretches (among whom, it is said, those of
Plantation Providence are the worst) should persist in their obstinacy, there
is no doubt such effectual measures will be taken as will make them bitterly
repent the day when they rejected the proffered clemency.

On Sunday last died, at the house of Baron
Von Firks, Miss Johanna Alfrida Gertruda Lossner. The fate of this young lady
is singularly distressing. She had been betrothed to the Baron, as may have
been observed in our late papers; but shortly afterwards, or we believe on the
very day, she was suddenly taken ill, and, in spite of all the art of medicine,
expired as above stated.
On Friday died, after a lingering and
painful illness, Dr. Wm. Allanby.

The Subscriber requests all those who
are indebted to him to come forward without delay, and settle their respective
