TO THE PUBLIC. [heading]
An Advertisement having been inserted in Mr. Henery's Paper, dated the 5th instant, by Alexander Reid, tending to prejudice the public mind against the Subscriber, he intended at first to treat it with the contempt it deserved (as the circumstance alluded to, was well known to most Gentlemen in Essequebo and Demerary); but as the said Alexander Reid, and his medical friend James Brown, have continued to trouble the public with false assertions, he finds himself obliged to vindicate his character, by stating the facts as they stand on record, viz. that he has had legal possession given him of the N.W. Half Lot no. 13, situate on the West Coast of Essequebo, by the sentence of the Honourable Court of Justice of that River, which sentence was founded on an award of an Arbitration Bond between them by Daniel Ford and - Cox, Esquires, Arbitrators for the full settlement of all Accounts relative to the said Half Lot; and, having deposited full and satisfactory Payment, as required by the decision of the Court of that river, in the Secretary's Office, for the Balance due to A. Reid, it then remains clear that he cannot be prevented from disposing of the property to the best advantage, for the Benefit of his Creditors and Family.

To the Editor of the Essequebo and Demerary Gazette.
Your notification to the Publick on the 5th inst. breathes a spirit of liberality, consonant, I trust, to the feelings of your numerous readers. Give me leave to state, for the gratification of the admirers of exalted humanity, the following Anecdote, equally creditable to the immortal Nelson and his Opponent.
At an entertainment given to Admiral Villeneuve, in Reading, previous to his departure on his parole to France, one of the company requested the Admiral to favour him with his opinion of Lord Nelson, adding, that he thought him a GREAT MAN. "Sir," answered our gallant adversary, "the energy of British Sailors is irresistible; but, in the Battle of Trafalgar, EVERY MAN was a Nelson!"
I am, Sir, your constant Reader,
