inches high, of a slender make, with very full eyes, and a disagreeable
countenance. Had on a flannel jacket, a check shirt, and short breeches. As he

that island. Captains of vessels are therefore cautioned against employing or
carrying away such a person, and the above reward will be given to any person
apprehending and lodging him in the Colony-Jail.

Excellency the Acting-Governor feels it a duty incumbent upon him, in the
temporary command he has the honour to hold of the Demerary Militia, to express
his warmest thanks to the Revd. W. G. STRAGHAN, for his appropriate,
impressive, and animating sermon yesterday, upon the important military duties
of that respectable body.
the well known soldier-like feeling of the Corps, and the evident attention
shewn to the exhortation, with the examples adduced from Sacred Authority of
Victory and Success attendant upon true valour and confidence in a good cause,

tranquillity [sic] and happiness of this Colony to be disturbed by

the commencement of the new year, we should be certainly guilty of gross
dereliction of duty, both to ourselves and to our friends, did we not express
our gratitude for the past, and our hopes for the future. For the occasional
assistance, therefore, of some, the liberal criticism of others, and the
ultimate patronage of all - we return our thanks; and, as our exertions, during
the present year, will, we trust, be similar to those of its predecessor - we
also trust, that similar will be the conduct of the Public toward us.
Sunday, pursuant to what appeared on the subject, in the Militia Order of
Friday, the Royal Battalion accompanied His Excellency the Governor and Suit,
to the Parochial Church. Demerary, we believe, has never before witnessed so
fine a military spectacle. About two o'clock, the line was formed under the
auspices of the Lieutenant-Colonel Commandant, Otto, and Major Tulloh, on the
dam, in front of the house of P. A. de Veer, Esqr. About half past, the Governor,
attended by his Aides-de-Camp the Hon. J. Johnson, Lieutenant Colonel Van
Rossum, and Capt. Eyre, and preceded by the banners of the regiment, escorted
by an armed detachment, and attended by the Band of the 60th, issued from the
King's House, and passed the line in grand review. On entering the avenue of
the Church, His Excellency and Field Attendance alighted, and proceeded in
quick time, to the Sacred Edifice; at the door of which, the Revd. Pastor met
his Martial Visitors. The scene was truly impressive - the Discourse was worthy
of the occasion, the orator, and the auditory - and the text was the 7 verse of
the 32d chapter of the 2d book of Chronicles.
now present our promised narrative of the Ramoncita's victory over the Hornet:
- a victory, so unparalleled in the annals of mercantile warfare, that we know
not which sensation predominates - surprise or pleasure! - This, however, is
certain; that to those brave and skilful defenders of vessels committed to
their care, (our Thompsons, our Irlams, and our Kennans,) we feel a particular
gratification in adding the name of - Venables - The following is extracted
from the log-book: - "In lat. 32. 18. n. long. 41 w. Nov. 25, at half past
two, p.m. a sail was discovered on our starboard beam. At three, found her to
be a ship bearing towards us, under a heavy press of sail. We then bore on a
wind, got ready for action, and continued on the same tack in order to be
convinced how she could sail with us - her superiority, however, was soon
apparent. Being now within gun-shot, we tacked, and crossed him a-head. Evening
fast approaching, we thought it prudent to show our colours, for the purpose of
preventing any mistake in the dark, should the ships near each other. The
Enemy, however, did not follow our example, until we gave him a shot - when he
hoisted British. By his superior sailing, he was soon after this under our lee
- he then hailed, and asked what ship ours was - we answered, His Britannic
Majesty's armed-ship Ramoncita - and enquired what ship that was. He replied,
His Britannic Majesty's ship Indian, and desired us to send our boat on board.
Receiving for answer, we should not, until convinced he was British, he
declared he would fire at us. To this we replied, if he did we would return it.
After a few minutes, he hailing again, we lowered our boat, and manned her with
an officer and two of our weakest hands, sent her along-side, and she was
almost immediately after, returned with an Officer from the ship. This
gentleman was soon marched into the cabin - where we again enquired what ship
it was - he however said that his Captain had ordered him not to inform us. We
then enquired, what flag he sailed or fought under - and his reply was, they
had British colours flying. We then informed him we were convinced he was an
enemy, and therefore should detain him and commence the action. On this he
cautioned us against commencing an action with a ship under British colours. We
then proposed that if we permitted his return, would he pledge his honour to
send our boat and men back, with the information as to what ship it was - he
answered he would. It was now 5 o'clock - and in about ten minutes, those we
expected came, and it was then found that it was the United States' sloop of
war Hornet, with 22 long twenty fours and eighteens, and 250 men, our officer
having been permitted to examine the vessel. By our officer a message came that
if we did not strike immediately he would sink us. By this time he hailed, and
asked if we had struck - we answered we should convince him of the spirit of
Britons so long as we had a man on board; and gave orders to fire - the enemy
being nearly yard-arm to yard-arm. - The broadside was soon returned, and a
most severe fire kept up on both sides for three hour and a quarter; when we
found that all his guns, but three on the larboard side, were silenced.
Hitherto we had a windward position, but now the wind flew suddenly round on
the starboard beam, which made us become the leewardmost ship. He soon bearing
up on our larboard side, and his yards nearly locked in our braces, the action
was renewed with great vigour, and continued about an hour and a quarter longer
- when it was evident, that we had also silenced the guns on that side, except
two. He then bore away. On mustering our brave crew, we found that two men were
killed and twelve wounded. The situation of our ship was very bad, having had
two feet and a half water in the hold, from the commencement of the action -
scarcely a shroud or back stay left to hold the masts - the yards without
braces, and the sails in a shattered condition; the main-top-gallant-mast and
yard being shot away - and the main-mast severely wounded, a 24 pound shot
having passed through it - the mizen-top-mast likewise severely wounded - and
much shattered in our hull." We shall have some further particulars to
communicate on Saturday.
Venables, it appears, fell in with the Crane sloop of war, off this coast, and
we feel great pleasure in having to record the very handsome conduct of Capt.
Stuart of that vessel. An Officer was sent on board to press, but when Capt. S.
was informed of the severe action in which the Ramoncita had been engaged, he
not only would not take any of the crew, but furnished Capt. Venables with
ammunition, and offered any other services in his power to render.
