evening H. M. Schooner Skip-Jack, Lieut. Thompson, last from Tobago, arrived
off the Bar, having on board J. Brown Esq. Government Secretary; the Skip-Jack
was seen this morning aground on the Lee Bank, in consequence of which the boat
of H. M. Sloop Kit went off to her, and brought Mr. Brown ashore at 12 o'clock
this day. - We have not heard that she has brought any News.
12 o'clock this day the prisoners confined in the Barracks were brought up to
receive Sentence, when Mr. Donough was ordered to pay the expences of the
process and was liberated, the three mulatto Men concerned in the murder of a
man on the evening of the 24th Dec. 1809, were sentenced to hard labour in the
prison of Fort Island, Essequebo - a man the property of Mr. Mackenzie, for the
murder of his wife, was brought to the gallows, the halter was placed round his
neck, after which he was severely whipped and branded - M. Jourdan for an
attempt to shoot Mr. Manget, was whipped and branded and for ever banished the
Colony, which sentence he bore in a manner that evinced a mind of no common
stamp. It is reported that he is a Nephew of the late General Jourdan.
Wednesday Evening last was performed at the Theatre, Tobin's admirable Comedy
of the Honey Moon, for purposes previously announced in this paper; and
considering the herculean task imposed by the Author on each individual
performer, we must say its representation far exceeded our most sanguine
Honey Moon is a Play upon the model of the Shakspearian School, and certainly
surpasses any thing since the days of that great father of the English Stage,
to whom it would have done honour; its closeness of plot, truth of character,
beauty of expression, and brilliant combinations of wit and fancy, will ever
ensure it admiration, and rank the deceased Author among the first of Poets.
part of the Duke, one of the most difficult in the whole range of the Drama,
was very ably supported, the Cottage Scenes were excellent, and bating [sic] a
certain rapidity of pronunciation and a rather harsh termination of sentences,
the delineation bespoke merit very extraordinary in an amateur. Balthazar was
very respectable, as was the Count, but of Jacques we want terms of admiration
in which to speak, he was quite equal to the original, he was the thing that
the Author drew, and in the Palace Scene he evinced historic talents rarely
found on a metropolitan Stage. Of the performance of Juliana we can say
nothing but that it wanted vivacity, and we would merely hint that drudgery,
nor should higgler, one who sells provisions by retail, be made haggler, a
person who is indecisive in a bargain; we mention this as no one can improve
until they be sensible of their faults; - on the whole the piece only wanted
Women, to make it equal to any provincial performance we ever witnessed.
Farce was a Burlesque, Burlesqued.
