The attention of the inhabitants of
Berbice is requested to the Postmaster's Advertisement in this paper, by which
it will be seen that no delay is likely to occur in the delivery of their
papers. The post boy will start every Saturday so soon as our paper is
published, and is enjoined to use all possible expedition.
We have been induced to make this
arrangement for the convenience of our Subscribers in Berbice as well as the
benefit of ourselves, and all the emoluments we can derive therefrom must
spring from the additional encouragement we expect our paper to be honoured
The Demerara, Capt. Inglis, and Maxwell,
Capt. Edwards, (running ship) arrived here yesterday from Liverpool, after a
passage of only 28 days. The former, which is consigned to the house of
M'Inroy, Sandbach, and M'Bean, brought Liverpool papers of so late a date as the
3d Jan. containing London news of the 29th December, with a sight of which we
have been favoured.
An American vessel came in here on
Thursday, with some French men and women on board, last from Cayenne; they were
not, however, permitted to land and the vessel was ordered away in the course
of the day.
Four Portuguese and a Spaniard were
lodged in the Fort by the Military on Tuesday, having been taken in Mahaica
Creek. The roundabout tale they tell is, that they sailed on board a brig from
Lisbon to the Brazils, whence they took some passengers to Cayenne; that the
vessel drifted from there down to Surinam, where the Captain went on shore to
obtain assistance; that the Captain staying longer than was expected, they were
sent in a small boat to look for him, in which they drifted to Berbice; that
they obtained some provisions there, and afterwards reached Mahaica Creek,
where they were secured as above stated.
About the same time six Spaniards were
taken at Pomeroon. Their professed object was to obtain leave from the
Governor to open a trade in cattle, &c. for which purpose we understand
they produced a letter from a lady at Angestura, to an inhabitant of this
Colony. They were unarmed, and did not attempt to make any resistance, but
when discovered, shewed the letter, and begged for mercy.
There appears to be rather a strange
coincidence in these circumstances.
Sporting. - A Trotting Match for five
joes took place last Tuesday; it did not, however, afford much amusement. The
Gentleman who lost (although no Irishman) declared it was owing to the
indisposition of his horse, and that he would ride again for the same bet so
soon as he was in a state of convalescence.
Thursday and Friday were great Cocking
days, and afforded plenty of hitting and Splitting sport; but, by J----s, we
have no room for particulars.
We are very happy to hear that a superb
service of plate has been presented to the Hon. Col. Nicholson by the
inhabitants of Berbice, as a mark of their esteem and high respect for his
The following Appointments in Berbice
