C. J. O'HARA,
AT a Meeting of the Proprietors, and
their Representatives, of the different Estates in the Canal, dug from the bank
of the river between Kingston and Cumingsburg, to the Plantation Cumings Lodge,
especially convened by the Commissaries, for the purpose of taking into
consideration some late claims of individuals to navigate and make use of said
Canal, independent of the Proprietors of the different Estates; the following
Resolutions were unanimously entered into, viz: -
1st. Resolved - that the sole and exclusive property of this Canal
is vested only in the Proprietors of the different Estates, from Cumings Lodge
downwards, they having been at the original expense of purchasing the Canal and
digging the Canal, as well as keeping the same in navigable order, and paying
all the subsequent expences of Bridges, &c. &c.
2d. Resolved - That all passes hitherto granted by any of the
Proprietors, or their Representatives, for the purpose of cutting grass, are
hereby cancelled and made void.
3d. Resolved - That we hereby pledge ourselves mutually to each
other, to give no written or verbal permission to any individual whatever, for
the space of one year from this date; and that if any permission should be
given, it shall null and void for the time above-mentioned, and as much longer
as any man or body of men may pretend an exclusive right, independent of the
owners of the different Estates.
4th. Resolved - That all Proprietors still retain the privilege
of accommodating their friends in the front of their Estates, these Resolutions
having principally as their object the stopping of strange Negroes from
annoying the Estates by the Canal.
5th. Resolved - That one week be allowed for informing the Public
of these Resolutions, and that the existing regulations of the last and
preceding Meetings are still to remain in full force.
6th. Resolved - That these Resolutions be printed in both
Gazettes, and that our signatures shall accompany them. Demerary, 30th
