The Gentlemen of the Rifle Company, having the highest Esteem, particularly for their Captain and Officers, as well as for Major Colin Macrae, and the Officers of the Militia in general, think it proper thus publickly to mark their Disapprobation of the Memorial presented to His Excellency the Governor by Mr. Thomas Marsh, and read on parade this day, as well as their contempt for Mr. Marsh, who they consider as unworthy of being a Member of said Company, and they beg leave to express themselves highly indebted to His Excellency the Governor for having so handsomely taken notice of the impropriety of Mr. Marsh's conduct, in ordering him to be dismissed from the Company.
Stabroek, Sept. 13, 1806.

Accident - On Wednesday fe'[?]night, as J. Jackson, Esq. of Cumingsburg, was returning from Fort Island, to his Plantation Belle Plain, accompanied by Messrs. Armstrong and Bunbury, in a fine new boat lately arrived from England, owing to carrying too much sail, the boat upset in a squall, nearly opposite Mr. Tousin's, and instantly sunk. Neither Mr. Jackson, nor Mr. Bunbury, could swim; the latter clung to the mast, but Mr. J. must inevitably have perished, had not Messrs. Aman and Schultz, whose boat was very fortunately at anchor near the spot, immediately gone to their assistance. By active exertions of these Gentlemen, Messrs. Armstrong and Bunbury were taken up, and the apparently lifeless body of Mr. J. was conveyed to the hospitable house of Mr. Tousin, where every possible attention was shown, and, by using the proper means, suspended animation was happily restored in the course of half an hour. Two fine negroes were drowned.

To the Editor of the Essequebo and Demerary Gazette.
Though there can be no doubt that your Journal has been hitherto better calculated for the amusement of the Colony that that of your competitor, it seems there is still some room for improvement. If, for instance, a few of your readers were to gratify the Publick with their observations on matters immediately interesting, would not [illegible] marks of humour be occasionally elicited that might induce others, of greater abilities, to indulge the community with their thoughts?
I was pleased on hearing a friend of mine, the other day mention his being (he knew not why) at a more than usual expense for shoes! I am a pedestrian, and wish so well to the Hon. Thos. Cuming, who in the improvement of the Highway, deserves the thanks of us all, that I cannot complain; having now, on the ceasing of each shower, the option of remaining at home or enjoying an agreeable promenade. The ameliorated state of the Roads, Sir, is the cause of the extra consumption of sole leather; but while exercise contributes to the preservation of health, and the greeting of life are facilitated, I will never repine at the wear of an old shoe.
I am, Sir, your very humble servant,
