John Muller [Jan Muller in Dutch
version] respectfully acquaints the Public, that having, at a considerable
expence, erected a Bakehouse on the North Dam, the second house above C. D.
Forrester, Esq. he intends to commence baking on Monday next, when families,
&c. may be supplied with the best bread, on paying for it either monthly,
or when the sum due shall amount to a Joe. J. Muller purposes to make Pilot
Bread, Crackers, Rusks, and other varieties.
The Undersigned respectfully informs his
friends and the Public, that he has just removed into the house formerly
occupied by H. de Munnick [H. – sic, in the Dutch version of
advertisement this is, "bewoond door de Heer de Munnick], Esq. on the fore
ground of plantation Werk & Rust, where he means to continue the practice
of the Medical Profession, and hopes by a prompt and polite attention to his
duties, to merit the encouragement and approbation of all who may be inclined
to favour him.
Notice is hereby given, that the Co-partnership
heretofore existing between the Undersigned and Mr. Nathan Hart, under the Firm
of M. Jacobs & Co. is this day dissolved. And should the said Mr. Nathan
Hart, after this day, call on any of the Merchants for credit in the name of M.
Jacobs & Co. and obtain it, the same will not be allowed by me; he having
forfeited the articles of agreement between us, and wishing to involve me. All
persons indebted to the said Firm are requested to pay their accounts to no
other person than the Undersigned; and all to whom the Firm may be indebted,
are requested to render in their accounts to
Found, by a Negro belonging to the
Undersigned, a Silver Watch, with a Copper Chain. Whoever can prove the same
to be his Property, may have it restored on paying the expences of this
Advertisement, and giving a trifle to the Negro, by applying to
Run Away from the Subscriber some time
since, a negro, named Amsterdam, short, and thick set. Whoever apprehends the
said Negro, and lodges him in the Barracks at Stabroek, or delivers him to the
Ferryman, shall be handsomely rewarded.
Weggeloopen van den Ondergeteekende, een
neger jonge genaamt Coffy, van de Amina natie, hebbende een jasmerk op zyn dye,
en bruynagting van couleur; die dezelve te regt brengt, zal een genereuse
belooning genieten, hy spreekt anders niet als de Creole taal.
Run Away a Boat Negro, named Philip, a
Creole of Barbados, stout, and well made, of the middling size, and formerly
the property of Mr. Kadell, who employed him in the ferry boat. He has been
seen on the premises of a free Negro woman, named Sander Gaems, where he has a
wife and child. Whoever will apprehend and restore him to the Undersigned, or
deliver him to the Printer of this Paper, will be liberally rewarded.
Run Away from Plantation Nouvelle
Flandre, two Negro men and one woman, named Thomas, Roby, and Magdalene.
Thomas is a Creole from Antigua, of a middle size, black skin, slight made, and
marked with the small pox in the face; he speaks good English and Dutch, and is
well known about town, where he used to be sent very often. He is a Boat
Negro, therefore may probably try to pass for free, and hire himself on board
of a Ship; all Captains of Vessels are cautioned against harbouring him.
Weggeloopen uyt de Supanama Creek in
Essequebo, van Tobias de Boer, houtmaaker aldaar, zedert de maand November
1805, een negerin, genaamt Ismene, een Creeol van gemelde Colonie, middelmaatig
van postuur, heel swart van couleur, men veronderstelt dat zy zich zoude
ophouden op een plantagie in Demerary, aan de westwal in de rivier, waar zy een
suster soude hebben; die geene die dezelve in de tronck aan Stabroek, ofte by
de Ondergeteekende te regt brengt, op de Middendam [sic], in het huis tussen
dat van wyle de Weduwe Pletz en den Heer Jourdan, zal boven het ordinair
vangloon genereus beloond worden. Ingeval gemelde negerin verkoos zelfs terug
te koomen by de Ondergeteekende, zal zy van straf bevryd zyn. Wordenede een
jeder gewaarschouwd voormelde negerin niet oprehouden, ofte employeeren, en
alle Capiteins gewaarschoud haar niet te vervoeren, zullende in zodanig geval
ten sterkste in regte vervolgd worden.
Run Away a few days ago a Carpenter
Negro, named Jacob. He is of the Canga Nation, and is marked with white spots
on his hands. Whoever will bring the said Negro to the subscriber at
Cumingsburgh, or lodge him in the Barracks, will be handsomely rewarded; and
any Person found harbouring him will be prosecuted with the utmost rigour of
Run Away from Plantation Glasgow, eight
days ago, a Bricklayer Negro, named William, he is tall and well made, was
born at Barbados, and speaks nothing but English. Whoever will secure and
convey him to the said Plantation, or to the Undersigned, will be handsomely
Walked Off on Saturday last, having
previously promised his Master he never would RUN AWAY, a Negro boy, named
Caesar, well known about town, lately the property of H. D. Obermuller, Esq.
but now of the Undersigned. As it is most likely the above boy will neither be
inclined to WALK or RUN BACK, whoever will take the trouble to secure him, will
be handsomely rewarded by
Just imported, and for Sale by the
Subscriber at his Store, for immediate payment:
The Demerary Militia had a grand Field
Day this morning in the New Ground lately prepared for the purpose by
[illegible] Jackson, Esq. and acquitted themselves much to their own credit,
and to the satisfaction of their Officers. The [illegible] with a few
exceptions, was very correct, and the manoeuv[illegible] particularly of the
Rifle Company, were executed with great precision, and made a pleasing
appearance. Colonel M'Crae gave the word of command with a steadiness and
distinctness that bespoke the veteran soldier, and, after the business was
over, address the corps in nearly the following words:
The Cavalry, commanded by Major A. Blair, also mustered this morning, not for parade, but for the laudable purpose of doing honour to the remains of their late com[illegible] C. A. Mathey, Esq. who died yesterday, much regretted [sic].
