the property of her Daughter Eleanor. He is a carpenter by trade, having served
two years under Mr. Versteg in Essequebo, and he has worked with several
persons in Demerary, some of whom he has endeavoured to impose himself on as a
free man. She therefore takes this opportunity to Caution all persons against
employing him without first applying to her, and all owners of Craft are
requested to give their people orders not to take away any of her people out of
the Town without a Pass. Said Jack has a mother at Mr. Dey's Estate in

Excellent Man Cook [heading]
The only arrival in the River in the course of this week is the Ship Garthland, Capt. Barkly, from Newfoundland with 2400 Quintals of Fish, which has been purchased by F. C. Otto, Esq.
The second Mail for September, tho' long due in Barbados, has not yet found its way here, which renders it very probable that the Embargo is still continued in that Island, from this circumstances we are left entirely barren of European News.
Arrived this Day at Noon, the Schooner L'Industrie, Capt. Crichton, from Boston, with Lumber and tar, consigned to A. Fullerton & Co. has had 41 days passage, brings no News.
The Spaniards have again made their appearance on our coast, they have in the course of this Week captured the Boat of Pyrika, also the one belonging to Aberdeen; - about an hour before which a dreadful suicide took place. - Doctor Perkins living on Plantation Aberdeen, (who on Sunday last attempted to destroy himself by stabbing himself in the body with a Penknife, however by timely assistance, he at that time was saved) on Tuesday Morning, with his wife and family and 5 negroes were coming to Town in a Colony Boat, he succeeded in throwing himself overboard, and altho not more than 4 minutes in the water, he was dead when taken into the Boat; it appears that the cause of this act, was from mental derangement.
To add to the horrid situation of Mrs. Perkins, the Boat in which she was, was captured by the Spaniards, who however, put her and her family ashore, and gave up her Trunks, but refused her the negroes.
Vessels Entered and Cleared since our last.
