We do not know that we can offer any more gratifying intelligence to the majority of our readers than what is contained in our List of Vessels Entered and Cleared this week. The arrival of the Fleet from Cork, laden with Provisions and Necessaries, and the sailing of that homeward bound, heavily burthered with Produce, are events of pleasing importance not only to the Merchant and Planter, but to every well-wisher to the Colony and its inhabitants. The Cork Fleet, consists of four ships and three brigs; it arrived on Wednesday, after a passage of six weeks and two days, but brings no news. We are sorry to hear that there have been some dreadful gales experienced on the coast of England; several vessels were lost, and all hands perished, on their passage from Liverpool to Cork.
An Extraordinary Court of Criminal and
Civil Justice will be held on Monday next (See Advertisement).
The ins and the outs of Demerary this week have caused as much bustle in the mercantile, as those of London lately did in the political, world.
PUBLIC VENDUE, in Stabroek and its
Vessels Entered and Cleared Since Our Last.
