TO LET. [heading]
A Very convenient Dwelling-House, near the Union Coffee-House, at present occupied by Doctor Thomas Whimpu. For particulars apply to
Demerary, Sept. 6, 1806. M. Campbell.

The Letter from "Ambulator" is unavoidably postponed till our next.

The Duke of Kent, Capt. M'Dougall, which arrived here on Tuesday from Greenock, fell in, about lat. 11, with De Vina Pastor Spanish merchant brig, from Barcelona 70 days, bound to Rio de la Plata, with wine, paper, silk stuff, &c. &c. which she took possession of, and brought with her off this port; but not having a letter of marque himself, Captain M'Dougall there left her, and made the circumstance known to Capt. Inglis, of the Demerary merchant ship, belonging to the same owners, then lying in the river, who was so provided, and who immediately went off in his boat, put a prize-master on board, and brought her up to the fort. There are four supercargoes on board, who are said to have embarked their all in this vessel, supposed to be work 10,000 l sterling. Several claims have been since made to the prize; and it will probably occasion some litigation. The matter of right cannot be decided here; the papers, &c. must go to Barbados before she can be condemned; and it is considered most likely that she will be made a droit of Admiralty. Which ever way it may be decided, however, and whatever pains may be taken to lessen that pecuniary remuneration the captors might be entitled to, it is a satisfaction to know that the praise which is due to Capt. M'Dougall in the first instance, and to Capt. Inglis in the second, for their prompt exertions and honourable treatment of the prisoners while under their care and controul [sic], cannot be claimed or diminished by others.
No less than twenty-seven passengers come in the Duke of Kent.

MURDER. [heading]
On Sunday morning last, one M'Caully, a white man, by trade a carpenter, was found dead and weltering in his blood, in a hammock, on the premises of another carpenter, named Henderson, on Werk & Rust. The body was first discovered by a negro, who informed a white man, and he very properly acquainted the Hon. the Fiscal, when the necessary orders were immediately given, to investigate the business, and to apprehend any suspected persons. Doctors Wolff and Verwayen examined the body, which was very much bruised in several places; but the wound which evidently occasioned death to ensue, was on the left temple, apparently inflicted with a bayonet or some three edged instrument, about two inches deep. There were, besides, some minor stabs on the body, and marks on the throat, as if the deceased had been there held, to prevent him from crying out. A great noise had been heard the preceding night; but no notice was taken by the neighbours, as it was no unusual thing in that house. The proprietor, Henderson, was said to have been seen, in company with another person, on the road to Le Repentir early in the morning.
It would not become us to hazard any conjectures on the perpetrators of this horrid deed; suffice it to say, that every exertion was used to discover them, the Hon. the Fiscal attending in person, and that Dienaars were dispatched after Henderson, who brought him to the Barracks in a few hours afterwards, where he still remains.

A Board of the Orphan Chamber will meet on Wednesday next; and
On Monday the 15th, the Court of Rolls and Court of Justice of this Colony will assemble.
A transport arrived on Sunday from Surinam, with 18 Artillery-men, six field pieces, 1000 stand of arms, and 150 of the 4th West India regiment. The men are in excellent order.
