Business. For particulars please to apply to Mr. Collitt Smith, residing on

The Gentlemen who think we have been too hasty in delivering our Bills, are requested to recollect the regulation announced by us on commencing business, viz. "that the Subscription Money must be paid in advance, and that all Advertisements must be paid for before insertion, except for those Gentlemen whose accounts are regularly settled every three months."
The Subscribers to the Berbice Gazette are respectfully informed, that they can have their papers of the preceding Saturday at this Office eevery Tuesday: but they must not expect them to be sent round, as we have lately found it utterly impossible to afferd that accommodation even with respect to our own paer.
Although the second March mail has not yet arrived here, by the means of Mr. Cuming's bag which was brought by a small lugger on Wednesday evening, we were put in possession of our papers, which were received in Barbados by the Francis Freeling packet on the 21st ult. in 29 days from Falmouth.
His Majesty's cutters Barbara, Lieut. Edw. Augustus D'Arcy, and Laura, Lieut. Robert Webb, both of 10 guns, arrived here yesterday morning in 31 days from Cork, with the Rosetta, from Bristol, for this port, and a vessel for Surinam. They bring no news. The cutters will proceed to Barbados on Monday or Tuesday next.
His Excellency General and Governor Montgomerie arrived here about six o'clock on Saturady evening, and the next morning had an interview witt his Excellency Lieut. Governor Bentinck. On Tuesday morning he reviewed the troops.
This morning his Excellency the General took over the Government, and about three o'clock, his Excellency Lieutenant Governor Bentinck embarked on board the Gingle Danish schooner to St. Thomas's, on his way to Europe for the re-establishment of his health. Mr. Secretary Brown accompanies his Excellency.
The Hon. Victor Heyliger was sworn in as Acting President of the Court of Justice on Thursday (see Advert. from the Sec.)
Several more Bush Negroes came in yesterday, it is said, from an Ebo camp.
We have heard that it is in contemplation to present every officer who distinguished himself in the late Bush Expeditions with a Gold Medal, value 20 guineas, on which is to be recorded the different services they have rendered the country.
Mr. S. G. Martens is appointed by the Hon. Court of Policy to succeed Mr. John Runnels, who, it will be seen by his Advertisement, intends to quit the Colony.
We understanad that some wholesome regulations are in agitation respecting the slaughtering of Cattle, the conduct of the Market, &c. which, if properly carried into effect, promise to become of much public benefit and general utility. In all well regulated towns in Europe, we believe there is a person appointed, under the denomination of "Clerk of the Market, " or some similar title, to superintend and inspect these concerns, and surely it is more requisite in this climate, where every thing has so much greater a tendency to corruption.
On Monday night last, the store of P. Reynard, segar-maker, &c. was broken open, and several valuable articles of dry goods stolen therefrom, to the amount of about 1500 guilders. We are sorry to say that several instances of similar depredations have lately occurred.
Died. On his Estate on Wakenam island, Essequebo (and not at his house in Cumingsburg), on Saturday afternoon last (and not before), Chas. Clifton, Esq. of his Majesty's Customs.
Mr. Pittman, is, we understand, to be the new Searcher, in the room of Mr. Clifton.
