The Board of the Orphan Chamber will meet on Wednesday next.

The homeward bound fleet remain outside the Bar, waiting the arrival of the convoy. Two running vessels sailed yesterday.

The Ruby, Capt. Wales, from Berbice for London, came up this river on Wednesday, to repair, having broken her rudder irons, &c. in going over the Berbice bar.

On Wednesday last, died, at Bush Park, Essequebo, where he was on a visit, William Cooper, Esq. formerly Solicitor of Gray's Inn, London.

Wednesday last, being the anniversary of His Majesty's Birth, was observed here with all possible demonstrations of respect. The Militia, under the command of Major Macrae, marched to the fort, notwithstanding the unfavourable state of the ground from so much previous rain, and fired three vollies in a manner that did them great credit, and called forth the thanks of the Major Commandant.
Several parties were given in honour of the day. The governor had a large company to dinner, during which and the whole evening, the band of the royals played a variety of loyal and favourite airs.
The Officers of the Militia dined together at the New Union Coffee House,
Major Commandant C. Macrae in the Chair,
Captain Dodgson, of the Rifle Corps, V.P.
and few convivial meetings can boast of so much thorough good-humour and harmony as prevailed under the able presidency of these Gentlemen. Among those present who did not belong to the corps, but who were happy in joining the ranks on this occasion, were
Charles Clifton, Esq. formerly Major. [centered]
[first column]
Richard Patterson, Esq.
J. M. Spooner, Esq.
[second column]
Gilbert Robertson, Esq.
& D. P. Simon. Esq.
[end columns]
A variety of toasts were of course circulated; but the health of his Majesty, whose birth-day they met to celebrate, was drunk with the enthusiasm of men who were willing to risk their lives in his defence. To much praise cannot be given to Mr. Campbell, for the excellency of his eatables and drinkables, and the attention shown. Every thing was good; every one was pleased; and, in consequence, every one concurred most heartily in the sentiment expressed by the following last Toast:
"Happy we have met, happy we part, and happy may we meet again!"
A. Fleischman, Esq. Attorney at Law, embraced the opportunity of offering his acknowledgments to those friends who so kindly attended and assisted him during his illness, by giving a grand Dinner, Ball, and Supper, at the house of Mrs. Eymans [sic]. Nearly 80 persons, of both sexes, attended, among whom were almost all the Members of the old Eendraght Society, and the satisfaction they derived was very visible in the faces of every one present. Mr. Fleischman, who has been 14 years in this Colony, was further honoured with the company of the Hon. A. Meertens and his Lady; the latter of whom led off the first dance, followed by her husband and Mrs. Dusart.

In the evening was an Amateur concert at the house of N. Rousselet, Esq. of which we need only say that it was led by Mr. Goepel, to give our readers an idea of the treat.
