It will be perceived, that, to prevent any of our Advertising Friends from being disappointed, we have this week again given a double paper. It will always be our pleasing study to afford theme every accommodation and, in order to do that more effectually, without abridging our News Department, we crave their attention and acquiescence to the following request.
it has been the custom here, since the first establishment of a newspaper, to insert all the Advertisements three times, unless otherwise especially ordered, we still mean to adhere to that practice. From the unprecedented and still rapidly increasing circulation of this paper, however, we find, that, in many instances, the purposes of an Advertisement are now better answered by its appearing once, than they were formerly by the triple insertion. This fact has bee communicated to us by several gentlemen, who, experiencing that to be the case, have kindly informed us, and thereby saved us the mortification of filling our columns with useless articles, we have therefore to solicit, that all, who may be alike quickly benefited by sending their Advertisements to The Essequebo and Demerary Gazette, will have the goodness to communicate to same, and, by so doing, afford us room for the further gratification both of themselves and others, by the insertion of more interesting information.
Advertisements continue to be taken in till Nine o'Clock on the Morning of Publication.
Hints or Communications on subjects of General Utility, or at all conducive to the Prosperity of the Colonies, and the comfort of the Inhabitants, will be thankfully received, and inserted free of Expence, addressed to the Printer.

The Court of Rolls, the Commissary Court of Essequebo and Demerary, and Court of Justice of Essequebo, will meet on Monday next; and on Wednesday, there will be a Board of the Orphan Chamber.
