FOR HIRE. [heading]
A Very Convenient House, situate on Werk & Rust in complete repair, with a new Horse Stable, Kitchen, Oven, and other necessary Buildings; inquire at the Office of
Sept. 26, 1806. I. T. Mathews, Adv.

Although the Duke of Kent packet, with the first August [illegible] reached Barbados the 11th inst. no mail-boat has yet reached here; there is therefore much reason to fear that she is taken.

A schooner privateer is off this harbour on Sunday evening, it was hardy enough to come close in, and make a signal for a pilot, when a boat with three negroes was sent on board; the enemy, however, did not detain them. On the mistake being discovered, the Skipjack and Affiance stood out for her, but without success.

His Majesty's brig Demerara, Capt. Patterson, which arrived here on Tuesday, fell in with a privateer, supposed to be the above; but she could do nothing with her, owing to her great superiority in sailing. The Demerara again went out on Wednesday evening.

The Court of Rolls and Commissary Court of Essequebo and Demerary will meet on Monday the 6th of October; and on Wednesday the 8th of October there will be a meeting of the Board of the Orphan Chamber.

The sailing of the homeward merchant fleet is, we understand, postponed for a month, in consequence of the intelligence brought by Capt. Patterson.

The following Promotions and Appointments have taken place this week in the 1st Battalion of the Demerary Militia.
Lieut. I. T. Mathews to be Captain, vice Vernede, resigned.
Lieut. James Robertson to be Captain, vice M'Leod, resigned.
John Johnson, Gent. to be Lieutenant, vice De Veer, promoted.
Robert Bell, Gent. to be Lieutenant, vice Naghton, promoted.
Jos. Bergh, Gent. to be Lieutenant, vice Donavan.

We understand that a Building of triple utility is about to be erected where the old Government House formerly stood. The centre is to be a tower, whereon will be placed a clock, and on one side will be a guard-house, on the other an armoury. We are not in possession of the plan, and therefore cannot state it correctly; but the above, we believe, are the purposes the intended building is meant to answer.

On Sunday last died Thos. Milbourn, Esq. one of the oldest inhabitants in Town. He was buried with military honours the next morning in Werk & Rust; the Light Company of the Militia (to which the deceased belonged), and about 40 other respectable Gentlemen, attending.

Suicide - Yesterday morning a Negro was discovered hanging on a tree in the Middle Walk of Plantation Vlissingen. He was a yellow skinned young negro, apparently a house-boy, about 5 feet 3 inches in height, slim made, and, from the marks on his temples, presumed to be of the Ebo nation. The poor devil had rigged himself out for his exit, in, no doubt, his best clothes; having on a new white shirt, new red and black striped woollen [sic] pantaloons, patent spring slings (braces, suspenders, or gallowses), a purple and white checked cotton waistcoat, and a Madras red silk handkerchief, with white spots, round his neck. The owner of this infatuated wretch is at present unknown; but any person missing a negro of the above description, may see the clothes by applying at the before-mentioned estate.

We have heard that it is customary in some Colonies to cut off the head of any negro making away with himself, and fix it on a post, as an example to others; and this mode appears to us very eligible; for, however they may wish to revive in their native country (a mistaken notion of the possibility of which is supposed to influence them), we apprehend the idea of returning without a head would greatly check, if not completely dissipate, this foolish delusion.

Vessels Entered and Cleared Since Our Last.

Sept. 24. Schooner Tom, Th. Fannch, from St. Vincent, in ballast.

Sept. 23. Ship Duke of Kent, J. Dougall, for Liverpool.
Sept. 24. Schooner ['Shooner' in text] Isabella, W. Marshall, for Boston.
