Essequebo and Demerary Gazette 1805 December 21


Ao. 1805 )


Essequebo and Demerary


( No. 156.

Saturday, the 21st of December.

By His Excellency Brigadier General James Montgomorie, Governor in and over the Colonies of Essequebo and Demerary, and their Dependencies, President in all Courts and Colleges, &c. &c.
Whereas, from the insufficient state of the front and side Dams of Cumingsburg, the influx of the Tides from the River renders the communication between the different quarters of Stabroek, Cumingsburg and the adjacent Townships, frequently very difficult and, on some occasions impracticable, and whereas it appears by experience, and by the report of several of the Proprietors of Cumingsburg, that no permanently efficient Remedy can be provided, from any means hitherto used; I have, therefore, judged proper to require the Proprietors and Inhabitants of Cumingsburg to meet together at the New Union Coffee House, on Monday the 30th of December current, there to appoint a Committee from their number, to propose a Plan for the future Security of the Dams, and to exhibit the same to me, in order that I, in conjunction with the Court of Policy, may investigate the same, and adopt such measures as appear best calculated for preventing in future the inconveniences which the Inhabitants have so long been subject to. And I do, therefore call on the said Proprietors and Inhabitants so to me accordingly.
Given at the King's House in Stabroek, this 21st December,
1805. Jas. Montgomorie,
Brigadier-General and Governor.
By Command,
C. T. Tinne, Gov. Sec.

Some of the Returns of the County Divisions, given in to the late Governor, having been lost or mislaid, of which no correct Copy can now be furnish; and the Governor, Brigadier General Montgomorie, being unwilling to act partially, fines himself under the necessity (which he very much regrets) of suffering the Delinquents of the 5th, 6th, 7th, 8th, and 9th Companies of the First Battalion, to escape this time, without paying the Fines they incurred.
The Governor is, however, yet more confirmed in his opinion (as expressed in his General Militia Orders of the 9th November)), of the absolute Necessity of having the Militia of the Colony properly armed and in some state of Discipline; and therefore directs the Major Commandant to send immediate orders to each Captain of the First and Second Battalions, to inspect his Company, reporting to him (according to a form he shall give), for the information of the Governor.
The Governor hopes, that, by the Returns that are to be laid before him, he shall perceive very few who presume to neglect or disregard the Militia Regulations of the Colony. All such may be assured, the Fines shall be levied in the most summary and effectual manner.
The Major Commandant is himself also directed to inspect the whole of the Militia, as soon after the 25th of next Month as possible, and report to the Governor.
By the Governor's Command,
King's House, Stabroek, Dec. 21 1805. C. T. Tinne, Gov Sec.
