[Colophon] [No. 755.
Tuesday, January 17, 1815.
General Colonial Order,
17th January, 1815.
To-morrow, the Anniversary of Her
Majesty's Birth, the George-Town Militia Brigade (Rifle Company excepted) will
assemble on the General Parade, in Cumingsburgh, to fire a feu-de-joye, in
honor of the day, at 12 o'clock.
The unmilitary and contumacious conduct
of the Rifle Company, upon the last Anniversary of his Royal Highness the
Prince Regent's Birth, is the cause of that Company not being permitted the
honor of attending upon the present occasion.
By His Excellency & Command in
J. T. Van Well,
Actg. Adjt. Gen. M. F.
The 18th, being the day on which the
anniversary of Her Majesty's Birth, is usually commemorated - the accustomed
loyal and appropriate proceedings, will commence at an early hour. In the
evening, there will be a large dinner-party at Camp-House; for which
preparation is making.
Market of George-Town. [heading]
Extract of the Regulations of the
Market; being an Act of the Hon. Court of Policy, dated Sept. 10, 1801.
"That no Cattle, Sheep, goat, or
Hog, may be killed in any part of the town, except at the place appointed for
that purpose, provided the same be for sale;" and "that no Cattle,
Calves, Sheep, Goats, or Hogs, shall be killed or sold before the Clerk shall
have examined the same - and not to permit any to be slaughtered, before he
shall have approved thereof - and in case of contradiction, such beast or
animal to be forfeited."
It is therefore hereby required by the
Undersigned, of all whom it may concern, that strict attention be paid to these
Laws and Regulations - and furthermore, that all persons so slaughtering shall
pay, for the benefit of the Market, the usual Fee. Those persons allowing
Slaves to slaughter in the country, any animal intended for the Public Market,
must supply them with a Pass directed to the Clerk for his examination -
specifying what it is, and to pay the usual fee for every animal to brought to
the Public Market.
