We have had several arrivals since Tuesday: the ships Russia Company, Cole, the Ariadne, Bird, the Aurora, M'Dougall, from Gibraltar; and the Lune, last from Grenada: - but they have communicated no intelligence of importance.
Much, however, and from all parts of the world, we trust to have the pleasure of giving in our next; as our Packet entered the river Surinam, on Thursday - The Planter and Merchant, we hope to gratify with a price current of colonial produce, rapidly advancing towards what was prevalent, in Demerary's good old days - when [illegible] were as scarce as cash at present; and the greatest curiosity that could be exhibited, was a citation! – To the Politician, we hope to communicate, secrets worth knowing, of state affairs, of battles fought, and victories [illegible] And, to the Soldier, we hope to present, [illegible] a mess of honourable promotion, as ever his [illegible] dreamed of.
fact, we anticipate, by the approaching Mail, the means of interesting every
reader; and we shall employ them to the best of our abilities.
Anniversary of Her Majesty's Birth-Day. - The military eclat with which the adjourned-commemoration commenced, certainly argued, that the 18th instant, would become entitled to distinguished notice in the annals of Demerary. Unfortunately however, an event much to be lamented, caused the spirit of the day to vanish at an early hour; and it was not until the evening, when cited by those potent magicians, Beauty, Music and Wine, that its re-appearance took place.
We now, however, return to the business of the morning. About ten o'clock, the Royal Battalion of the Militia, assembled at the respective place of roll-calls and, soon after, proceeded to the Grand Parade - where was already stationed, the 60th Regiment. The united-line being formed, the Commander in Chief began to be momentarily expected, when Major Imthurn arrived, and announced His Excellency's sudden indisposition. At such a time, and on such a spot, intelligence so unexpected, must supposed to operate not a little on the martial enthusiasm of the moment in the post of honour, however, devolving on the Garrison Commandant, Lieutenant-Colonel Codd, the business of the business of the field commenced. One detachment of the Royal and Militia Artillery paraded with a field piece, upon the right of the 60th, and another on the left. The salute commenced with seven guns from the right field piece; a feu de joie followed on the right of the 60th, and proceeded to the left of the Militia, when seven guns were fired from the left to the right, then seven guns from the right field pieces, and another feu de joie as at first. The troops then marched in review order, and returned home. The review station was crowded with Persons of Distinction.
At one, the fort and shipping saluted as usual.
About six in the evening, the previously-formed Vauxhallic avenue beginning at the bridge, and terminating nearly midway of Marshall's hotel, was lighted up; but unfortunately the wind proved too high throughout the event, for any very brilliant effect. In the ball, card, and supper rooms, as well as the front gallery, several appropriate transparencies and illuminated devices, were also placed. The company began to assemble at the usual hour; the dancing commenced about eight; and the only regret expressed, was the absence of His Excellency. The Hon. W. Robertson presided; and under his auspices, the night past away in the utmost harmony and conviviality. After supper, a number of loyal and popular toasts, were give as usual, on such occasions.
Undersigned having lately arrived from Barbados, is desirous of hiring herself
to a respectable family as a House-keeper, or a Nurse for children. For further
particulars apply at the Domicilum Office.
