( No. 188.

Saturday, the 2d of August.

Secretary's Office. This is to inform the Public that the following Persons intend quitting this Colony:
Mr. Pieter Oyens, in fourteen days.
Mr. J. C. Daxon, in fourteen days.
Mr. Theodore Barrell, in fourteen days.
R. P. Tubbs, (Free Man) in fourteen days.

Demerary, den 2de Augustus 1806.

By the Returns lately given in of the Population of Stabroek and its Precincts, it appears that many persons have hitherto evaded the Law, and not enrolled themselves in the Militia. It is His Excellency the Governor's desire, therefore, that such persons should be thus once more warned of the consequence of not complying with the Law in this particular; and which will be rigorously enforced against all who neglect it in future.
His Excellency intending to inspect the Militia soon, the Major expects a more regular attendance at all previous Drills; especially that appointed for Saturday next. Should the weather not permit on the Morning of that day, there will be a parade in the Afternoon, if more favourable.
A Major is further commanded to inform those persons not yet provided with Arms, that they must supply themselves immediately, according to Law, at their own Expence; as, from the great waste and improper Use made of the Arms issued by Government, no more can be given.
Aug. 2, 1806. Colin Macrae,
Major 1st Battalion D. M.

The Subscribers give notice, that they have brought the Copartnership of Benjamin & Barrell to a close this day. Mr. Barrell intends, in the course of two or three weeks, to leave the Colony; and, as it is necessary to raise a sum of money previous to his doing so, Mr. Benjamin will be obliged (much against his inclination) to put certain demands that ought to have been paid long ago, into the hands of a Lawyer, without any further application for payment.
