OUT AT LAST! [centered]

Continued from Tuesday's Gazette. [centered]

We revert again to those journals which were denied us, on account, we suppose, of our political opinion – and given to him, who has no opinions at all, except on grog!

Everyone, however, to his own liking – whether it be the English or Foreign Gazette; grog, or "effusions" in doggerel; advertisements for ganders, or Yankee papers!

Motives for Fighting. [centered]

The following is given as a guess on the part of Jonathan of Salem, why the present War should be eternal!

"The Value of Salem property taken by the English is only 900,000 dollars! While the British property taken by the Privateers of Salem, is already estimated at 474,234!!"

LOCALITIES. [centered]

We have been requested to insert the following Key to an advertisement in Wednesday's Paper:

The Gander's name is A. ----;
The Goslings ate his Co.
The splasher of poetic dirt
Is ----n, I know.
"Quihus," Sir, a Doctor is,
And Latinist, likewise-
At least he says so - but the quiz,
Under a mistake, Sir - lies! I.
[Transcriber's note: Wednesday's paper must refer to the Essequebo and Demerary Gazette; see 18130407EDG]

Cleared from the Custom-House - the Schooner Fame, Greenidge, for Barbados.

RUNAWAY and ARRESTED SLAVES, [centered]
