His Excellency Major-General Hugh Lyle Carmichael, Acting-Governor in and over
the United Colonies of Demerary and Essequebo - and the Honourable Court of
Policy of said Colonies: -
all whom it may concern, Greeting, be it known:
by virtue of the powers vested in me, by His Majesty's Instructions, to alter
and amend, from time to time, the Laws and Regulations of these Colonies,
subject, however, to His Majesty's approbation -
have thought fit, by and with the advice and consent of the Hon. Court of
Policy, to Combine the Board of Electors with that of Financial
Representatives; to extend the Right of Suffrage to all such persons, as may
pay the Income-Tax on f. 10,000 per ann. who shall have an equal right to vote
in all elections, in the same manner as those who are possessed of 25 Negroes
as by the former Regulations.
whereas, it appears necessary to confine the right of voting to persons, who
may be Attornies, Sequestrators, or Representatives of various Plantations - it
is hereby enacted, that all persons, without distinction, who shall pay the Tax
on Income of f. 10,000 per annum, as well as those who are possessed of
twenty-five Negroes, shall be entitled to Vote for the Combined-Board of
Kiezers and Financial Representatives, now to be convened; but that no person
being Attorney or Representative of Several Plantations, shall be entitled to
more than two Votes for the said Plantations, however numerous they may be,
exclusive of his personal right of voting either as proprietor of negroes, or
by virtue of a payment of his income-tax.
elected for the Combined-College of Kiezers and Financial Representatives, to
serve two years. The two eldest members to got out at the end of two years,
and their places to be supplied by a new election, and so on every year
that no ignorance may be pretended of this our Ordinance, the same shall be
printed and published, and affixed for general information.
enacted in the Extraordinary Meeting of the Honourable Court of Policy
aforesaid, held at the King's-House, in George-Town, Demerary, on the 7th of
September, and Published the 8th following.

this life since our last - Mrs. Martha Neilson, and Mrs. Lambly - both of this
Maidstone frigate left Plymouth June 17. - Dispatches, in cypher, from the
Government of the United States to that of France had been intercepted. We
understand they informed of the time when war was to be declared against Great
Britain; and subsequent sailing of the American squadron to a place of
rendezvous of one from France, when they were to act together on; previously
digested plan of operations - the Government of Great Britain becoming consequently
aware of the contemplated measures of the United States had, it is said,
ordered 10 sail of the line and ?0 [illegible first digit] frigates, to be
immediately prepared for service in North-America.

seems that the War is very unpopular in the greater part of America. Most of
the States have remonstrated against it; and many are determined not to give
Government the least assistance in its prosecution. Although General Officers
had been appointed to command the Militia in those States adjoining British
America, no attention had been paid to their directions, the people having come
to the resolution of not being employed in any offensive operation, observing
that they have territory sufficient but that they would be ready to defend what
they were already in possession of.
are led to believe one of their frigates has had a narrow escape, having been
chased by our three days; but the wind favouring her, she got into Boston,
without receiving any considerable injury. The Americans are said to be very
apprehensive that Commodore Rodgers, in the President, and the other ships
under his direction, will fall into our possession, for there seems to be a
very sharp look-out for them - The Africa, Shannon, Guerriere, AEolus,
Belvidera, and some small cruisers, being off Sandy-Hook, in the hopes of an
