Prices of Produce in Stabroek this day.
We are extremely sorry and beg leave to apologize to our Subscribers for the quality of Paper we are under the necessity of issuing, owing to the non-arrival of the London Fleet, by which we expect a large supply in two different ships; having completely expended our old stock and none of the kind of Paper suitable to our business being for sale in the Colony, we had no other alternative than the substitution of coloured Paper until the arrival of the London Ships, when we hope to make up for this temporary disappointment to our Subscribers by the superior quality of the Paper with which we will re-commence.
Came in since our last His Majesty's Schooner Skipjack, from Berbice, where she is stated to have taken possession of the American Brig Elizabeth, as a lawful prize. It is at the same time reported that a seizure to a considerable amount has been made within the few last days by the Custom House Officers on Plant. Hague.
Death of Governor Woodley of Berbice. - We are sorry to hear that this melancholy event took place last Friday morning at the Government House, New Amsterdam, and Saturday noon His Excellency's remains were inter'd with all the honours due to his rank and dignity. We understand that the Government of Berbice devolves in the interim on Major-General Dalrymple, as Commander in Chief of His Majesty's forces in these colonies.
Died on Sunday the
7th Inst. on board a boat returning from Mahaicony, Mr. Jacquies Mariner. On
Thursday last, Mr. Henry Barrow, Post-Holder, and last Saturday, Mr. J. F.
Schultz, - all three of extreme fatigue on the late expedition against the Bush-Negroes.
