Militia General Order. [heading]
His Majesty's Packet, Queen Charlotte, and the armed-brig Hawk,
having returned into port this day, with the Cork fleet, which was exposed to
the enemy's vessels upon these coasts:
Captain Kirkness, commanding, has reported the good conduct of the
troops on board the two vessels, with the exception of three or four
discontented individuals, dismissed and sent on shore; and who, with such
disposition, should not have volunteered.
In consequence of the Captain's representation, His Excellency the
Acting-Governor returns his warmest thanks to Brigade-Major Brandt, Captain
King, and the Detachments under their command.
When Lieutenant-Colonel Otto, commanding the George-Town Militia,
reported himself and corps, on the 4th instant, ready to embark as volunteers,
to attack the enemy in the offing, it only corresponded with the conduct of
that Loyal Body, who had acted in a similar manner on the 30th September, by
chasing off the coast an insulting enemy.
His Majesty's Naval and Land Forces, when they discharge their
duty faithfully, receive due glory and praise; and certainly the highest
applause, and cordial thanks of every good subject in the colony, are merited
by those who voluntarily relinquished their domestic comforts, and private
self-interest, to embark upon an element which they were unaccustomed, for the
purpose of combating an insolent foe, bidding defiance, and presuming they
could plunder with impunity in sight of the British Flag.
The enemy having again found means, through some unaccountable
channel, to elude the vigilance and promptitude of the inhabitants of Demerary,
which has now been so conspicuous on two emergencies - His Excellency the
Acting-Governor trusts they will still continue on the alert, and ready to
oppose, either on sea or shore, unnatural enemies, the allies of a nation whose
entire ambition appears to be that of tyrannizing and oppressing every
civilized Government in the universe.
King's House, George-Town, 9th November, 1812.
By His Excellency's Command,
MILITIA (after) ORDER. [heading]
November 9, 1812. [heading]
Since the foregoing Order His Excellency the Acting-Governor has,
with deep regret, received Reports of the misconduct of certain individuals
which will require investigation; particularly as one of them had on a former
Misbehaviour on the part of an inconsiderate person, can never
create any unfavorable impression of an honorable body of men, who came forward
in the most gallant manner to offer their services, and which have produced the
following good effect, as declared upon Oath, and from the most undoubted
authority: - When His Majesty's Packet and Brig sailed, there were Privateers
from America, of considerable force, upon these coasts; one, to the east-ward,
had taken the Union brig from Guernsey, and the Tiger colony-boat of Berbice -
the latter of which she released - with other small craft, as her object was
the Cork fleet. About the same time, the Caledonia, commanded by Captain
Thompson, had an action, on the west-ward coast, and beat off a large
On Saturday the 7th instant, Captain Kirkness, with the Packet and
Brig, cruising off Berbice, where the enemy had been the day before, fell in
with the fleet from Cork for Demerary, without any convoy, and saw the whole
safe in, on the morning of the 8th instant, which would probably otherwise have
become a prey to the enemy - who, it is certain, received intelligence of the
former armament, and there is every reason to suppose upon the present
occasion, timely notice has been obtained by them.
It is expected, that the Commandants of Militia, and Burgher
Captains, will use the utmost vigilance and exertion to discover the emissary,
and for which purpose One Hundred Pounds Sterling will be given to any person
who will give such information as may lead to a conviction of an internal
traitor or spy; who will be brought to that condign punishment established by
the Laws of Nations and War, in such cases.
By His Excellency's Command,
Arrived since our last - The Cork Fleet; consisting of the Pilot,
Barton - the Thomas, Foster - the Fame, Williams - the Camilla, Gemmell - the
Flora, Ravely - and the Trelawny. Neither of which, however, has brought later
intelligence than the Caledonia.
It will be found, from the above Militia Orders, that the Packet
and Hawk brig, mentioned in our last to have sailed in quest of the Privateers,
The Chichester Packet, which left this River on the 3d of August,
arrived at Falmouth on the 13th of September.
The Packet now in the river, will depart for England to-morrow.
By a reference to our first page, it will be seen that the Hon. J.
Johnson, is appointed King's Receiver for the United Colonies.

deferring the insertion of several Political Pieces, until a future paper.
BRITISH INTELLIGENCE. [heading]
Sept. 23. [heading]
Captain Tucker, of His Majesty's ship Cherub, arrived from the
Leward [sic] Islands, has informed the Lord Commissioners of the Admiralty,
that 42 of the fleet which sailed from St. Thomas's the 3d ult. under his
protection, parted company at different times during the passage by making sail
from the convoy - 'The Lords Commissioners of the Admiralty have informed the
Committee, that if Masters of vessels under convoy, continue inattentive to
signals and instructions, and will voluntarily part company in the manner they
at present so generally do, that his Majesty's Officers cannot be responsible
for the safety of the Trade."
