It was the intention of the Printer to
have fully acquainted the Public with the cause of his Paper not being
published the two last weeks, but the same appears to be sufficiently explained
by the following "Apology for his late Indiscretion," which he is
bound by the Government to publish, as the condition on which atone he could be
permitted to proceed, and which he accordingly printed verbatim, as he received
the manuscript from the Government Secretary.
"Being perfectly sensible of having
justly merited the censure of His Excellency Brigadier General Montgomerie,
Acting Governor, by publishing in the Essequebo and Demerary Gazette paragraphs
which tended to injure the feelings of individuals in the community, contrary
to his wish and strict injunctions and feeling the highest sense of gratitude
for his Excellency's goodness in pardoning my indiscretions - I hereby solemnly
pledge myself not to print or publish any paragraph
in future which can give his Excellency,
or I hope any other person in the community, offence.
Signed T. Bond"
The Printer begs, of himself, to offer
his warmest and most heartfelt acknowledgments to those numerous Gentlemen who
tendered him their assistance in the hour of need. It will ever afford him consolation,
and be his pride and satisfaction, to reflect on their friendly conduct, and he
hopes they will do him the justice to believe, that he is equally impressed
with a sense of their intended kindness, as if he had been compelled to profit
by its application.
It is with feelings of the greatest
pleasure, considerably heightened by the knowledge that the communication will
be equally grateful to the Public at large, that we inform our readers - the
Hon. Col. Nicholson is appointed Acting Governor of these Colonies, and will
commence the duties of that high office on Monday next.
Not being certain that we should be
allowed again to issue our paper till yesterday, it has not been in our power
to give such a paper as we could have wished this day.
The 2nd July packet arrived here
yesterday; she brought no later news than the above. ['the above' not
transcribed - European news]

was conveying the 1st July mail here from Barbados, was taken on the 24th ult.
off this coast, by the Jeune Adelle privateer, of 12 guns and 118 men. Capt.
Hunter had the precaution to throw the mails over, and, passing himself for a
passenger, was, with several on board, sent in an American ship, which the
privateer spoke, to Surinam, whence he has since arrived at Barbados.
The schooner Birchall, Tynes, Master,
from Barbados to Surinam, was also taken by the same privateer, and another in
company, on the 10th ult. off the Corentyn, and sent into Martinique.

passengers were permitted to go to Surinam.

Essequebo Sportsman. - A Gentleman who,
though generally known in these colonies, is perhaps better so by his quickness
of fingering than of sight, a few days since went to amuse himself with the
joys of the chase, and, anticipating much sport, chose Tyger Island for the
display of his prowess in the execution of this art. He had not advanced many
roods, when dame Fortune popped a tempting shot in his way - a fine flock of
Ducks! No sooner had the negro who accompanied him made gestures indicative of
approaching game, than up soared the feather brood - bang went the gun - and
down dropped a suppliant Duck; but - oh, most glorious shot" - it was a
