PROCLAMATION.
By His Excellency HENRY WILLIAM BENTINCK, Governor and Commander in Chief in and over the Colonies of Demerary and Essequebo, and their Dependencies, Vice Admiral &c. &c. &c.
President.
And the Honble the COURT of POLICY of the said Colonies:
WHEREAS in consequence of the great increase of Inhabitants in the Town and Precincts of Stabroek, it is become necessary to make some regulations respecting the Market in the said Town, as well as for the better encouragement of the supply of Provisions for the same, as to prevent the great inconvenience of Hucksters and Retailers crowding the public bridges and streets, to erect in the Market Place proper Buildings to shelter the persons resorting thereto, to vend their commodities, and to prevent injury to their health by constant exposure to the weather.
We have therefore thought fit to issue this our Proclamation, directing that six respectable Inhabitants of said Town and its Precincts, together with the Inspector General, be nominated by the Honorable Court as Commissioners under this act, with power to agree, in the first place, for such commodious Buildings, as may to them seem proper, to be erected on the foreground of the said Town of Stabroek, where the Market is at present held; such agreement to be confirmed by His Excellency the Governor; and which place is hereby declared as the Public Market for the sale of all Provisions and other articles usually sold there.
That a proper person be appointed as Clerk of the Market, with a salary of Twelve Hundred Guilders per annum, who is hereby enjoined to examine the Weights, Beams, Scales, and Measures, and to see that the same are just and true; and in case of any doubt of the same, to have them compared with those that are for that purpose under the care of the Inspector of Weights and Measures, and in case of their being deficient, the party using such fraudulent Scales and Weights, shall be liable to the penalty in the Proclamation of 31st January, 1797, which was published the 1st of March following, which penalty however is to paid over to the said Clerk of the Market, and to be accounted for by him to the Commissioners, for the use and expence of the said Market; and the said Clerk of the Market is also enjoined to inspect Butcher's meat, Fish and Poultry, brought to the said Market, and to prevent any bad or unwholesome provision being exposed for sale there; and under the direction of the said Commissioners, to take order for slaughtering any animals, in front of the said Market, or its vicinity, so as to prevent, as much as possible, any nuisance arising therefrom. And in order to preserve order and tranquillity [sic] in the said Market, a proper place with stocks shall be provided for the confinement of any slave or slaves, disturbing or behaving in a riotous manner, in said Market; and in case of any white or free coloured person so conducting themselves, they shall be liable to a penalty, not exceeding two Joes, on conviction thereof before the Commissaries, who are hereby empowered to levy the said penalty, which shall be paid over by him to the Commissioners as before-mentioned; and in default the payment of the same in twenty-four hours, they shall be committed to the common Jail for any term not exceeding eight days, independent of any punishment they may incur by any other breach of the Law in the said Market.
And in order to defray the expence of the said Buildings, and the necessary outgoings respecting the said Market, as far as possible, the said Commissioners are hereby empowered to let the Sheds, Shops or Stands, in the said Market, at such rates as can conveniently be got for the same, which rent is to be collected punctually every month by the said Clerk of the Market, and paid over to him on oath to the said Commissioners, who are to account quarterly to the Receiver for the same, after however paying thereout the salary of the Clerk of the Market, and any other expences attending the said Market; and in case the rent above-mentioned should be insufficient to pay the expences, then the Commissioners are hereby empowered to issue an order on the Colony Receiver for the balance, who is to discharge the same out of the Colony Chest.
And the said Commissioners shall have full power and authority from time to time to make out such rules and regulations for the good government of the said Market-Place, and the convenience and protection of the persons resorting thereto, as they shall think proper, taking care however, that such regulations do not contravene any of the laws of the Colony. - And all persons resorting to said Market, are hereby required and enjoined to obey the said regulations, on their being duly published in the Gazette, under the penalty, if a white or free coloured person, of two Joes, to be paid over to the Clerk, and by him to the Commissioners, for the uses abovementioned, and if a slave, he or she shall be subjected to personal punishment, not exceeding twenty five lashes.
The said Commission is to be in force for two years, when the Court shall proceed to re-elect the said Commissioners for that term, or nominate others, as may seem best to them. - The Court reserving however the power of making any alterations in the said act, as them shall seem meet.
And lastly the Court doth hereby nominate and appoint Messrs: C. MACRAE, ALEX: FULLERTON, DAVID KING, J. M. SPOONER, AD. SMITH, and GEORGE BUCHANAN, to be Commissioners of the said Market; and it is hereby declared, that any three of the said Commissioners, together with the Inspector General, shall be a quorum for all the purposes of the above act.
Given in our Ordinary Sitting held at the Court-House, Stabroek, this 2d day of May, 1811, and published on the 25th of the same month.

By Command of the Court.

PROCLAMATION.
By His Excellency HENRY WILLIAM BENTINCK, Governor and Commander in Chief in and over the Colonies of Demerary and Essequebo, and their dependencies, Vice Admiral &c. &c. &c. President, and the Honble the Court of Policy of the said Colonies.
Unto whom these Presents shall come, Greeting, be it known.
WHEREAS, representations have been made to us, that numerous Meetings of Slaves are permitted to take place on the East Coast of this Colony at late hours in the Evening, which although, they are avowedly for religious purposes, yet being at unseasonable and improper hours, have been found productive of disorder, and if continued to be allowed, may have the most dangerous tendency. We have therefore, thought fit to enact as it is hereby enacted, that from the date of the publication of these presents, no Meeting or Convocation of Slaves, shall be lawful, or permitted to take place after the hour of Sun-Set, for any purpose whatsoever, except only for the usual purposes of the estate or plantation to which such slaves shall belong. And we do hereby in the strictest manner, forbid any Proprietor, Attorney, or Manager of Estates to permit such meeting under pain of the severest penalties of the law, directing the Burgher Officers of the different districts, to use their authority to prevent the same, authorising them in case of resistance, to commit the person or persons so resisting, or refusing to comply; strictly conforming themselves to the Instructions given them in the 24th Article of the Militia Regulations.
Given in our Ordinary Sitting held at the Court House in Stabroek this 2d day of May 1811, and published on the 25th of the same Month.

PROCLAMATION.
By Excellency HENRY WILLIAM BENTINCK, Governor and Commander in Chief in and over the Colonies of Demerary and Essequebo, and their dependencies, Vice Admiral &c. &c. &c. President, and the Honble the Court of Policy of the said Colonies.
Unto whom these presents shall come, Greeting, be it known.
WHEREAS it appears by an application from the Deputy Post Master General that the Penalty enacted by this Court of Twenty five guilders per letter, for such letter or letters as shall be neglected to be delivered at the Post Office by any Master of Vessels, Passengers or others, has failed in its defined effect - And whereas it is necessary that the evil complained of be remedied; we have thought fit to enact as it is hereby enacted - That any Master of a Vessel, Mariner, Passenger or other person, who shall neglect or on application for same, refuse to deliver forthwith any letter or letters or bag of letters, excepting only open Letters of Introduction brought by them or entrusted to their care, shall be liable to the fine or penalty of Three Hundred Guilders Hds. Currency, for each offence.
And it shall be lawful, for the Post Master General or Deputy Post Master, or his or their Agent or Agents for the time being, to prosecute for the recovery of the said penalty or fine, together with the Costs of any such Suit or Suits, in our Courts of Law in these Colonies.
Given in our Ordinary Sitting held at the Court House in Stabroek the 2d day of May 1811, and published on the 25th of the same month.
H. W. BENTINCK.
By Command of the Court,
ALEXR. TINNE, Actg. Dep. Sec.
